Post-malaria neurological syndrome (PMNS) is a complication that occurs after recovery from a severe Plasmodium falciparum attack. Over the past two decades, the description of several imported cases has confirmed that this syndrome is a clearly distinct entity, different from other post malarial neurological disorders. However, the underlying mechanisms are not yet elucidated. Herein, we present five imported PMNS cases managed in Marseille, France. The detection of neuronal surface antibodies to an encephalitic syndrome of unknown origin allowed us to reveal positivity of anti Voltage-Gated-Potassium Channel antibodies (anti VGKC) in one of them...

BACKGROUND: Zika virus (ZIKV) infection a concern to travellers because of potential sexual transmission and adverse pregnancy outcomes. OBJECTIVE: To describe our experience in diagnosing ZIKV in travellers returning from endemic territories. METHOD: Travellers were evaluated for ZIKV at our clinic in a 12-month period during the outbreak, using ZIKV-specific RT-PCR and anti-ZIKV Immunoglobulin M/G ELISA when symptomatic, and ELISA only for asymptomatic travellers, preferably from 20 days after the last exposure...

BACKGROUND: In Italy, the incidence of tick-borne diseases in humans is underestimated, as they are not obligatorily notifiable. The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of tick-borne pathogens in ticks removed from human subjects in Veneto region (northeastern Italy), an area for which no published studies are yet available. METHOD: Forty-five ticks prospectively removed from human subjects, between March and August 2016, were analysed for bacterial DNA...

Pneumococcal disease is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide with a significant financial burden. Pneumococcal vaccines are available and recommended in many countries for at-risk populations including young children, the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions. The Hajj and Umrah mass gatherings attract millions of Muslim pilgrims to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia each year. These events increase the risk of pneumococcal disease especially among the large number of elderly pilgrims with co-morbidities...

BACKGROUND: Overuse and misuse of antibiotics have been reported in Hajj. However, little is known about Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP) of pilgrims themselves in relation to these agents. METHODS: Adult pilgrims from seven countries attending the 2015 Hajj were interviewed using a structured KAP questionnaire. RESULTS: KAP information was collected from 1476 pilgrims. Misconceptions regarding antibiotics included that they: cure all diseases (24...

Many factors are involved in the epidemiology of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). Imported cases, as well as those by emigrants, have been reported in literature worldwide. Our goal is to document two cases of HFRS, imported by two immigrants from two countries, and to make a review of the imported HFRS literature data. We performed a systematic literature review (PRISMA guidelines) of imported cases of HFRS and herein describe our two clinical cases. We found 20 published papers, with 16 of them in English and 4 in other languages...

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis A (HA) incidence declined in most European countries in the past decades. We analysed HA notification data for Switzerland of 29 years looking for disease- and notification system-related factors possibly contributing to observed trends. METHOD: Notification data were descriptively analysed using five time intervals (1988-1993, 1994-1999, 2000-2005, 2006-2011, 2012-2016); and notification rates were calculated. RESULTS: From 1988 to 2016, the HA notification rate decreased from 9...

BACKGROUND: Civil air travel is increasingly recognized as an important potential source for the rapid spread of infectious diseases that were geographically confined in the past, creating international epidemics with great health and socio-economic impact. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this systematic review is to elucidate the correlations of materials surfaces (composition, structure, properties) and microbial dependences on them in aircraft. METHODS: The review was prepared according to PRISMA guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Most of internationally adopted children (IAC) come from countries in which tuberculosis (TB) is endemic. Interpretation of discordant Tuberculin Skin Test (TST) and Quantiferon-Gold In Tube (QFT) results is under debate. METHODS: Children consecutively referred to our IAC Center between 2009-2017 were prospectively evaluated and screened with protocol recommended by the America Academy of Pediatrics, including TST and QFT. TB infection prevalence was evaluated and possible risk factors associated with discordant TST/QFT results were investigated...

BACKGROUND: Slovakia is well-known for tick-borne encephalitis alimentary (TBE) outbreaks in Europe for a long time. Since the first known and largest TBE alimentary outbreak in 1951 (at territory of Slovakia) until today, none of the European countries report a comparable number of TBE alimentary outbreaks with probable and laboratory confirmed food transmission factor as Slovakia. METHODS: We analyzed TBE outbreak confirmed cases reported in Slovakia from web-based Epidemiological Information System (EPIS) during the period 2007-2016...

BACKGROUND: West Nile Virus (WNV) is mosquito-borne virus that is endemic in Israel. In 2015, national disease surveillance demonstrated a sharp increase in disease cases, with 149 cases diagnosed. METHODS: Clinical data was extracted from the patients' medical files and laboratory analysis on blood, cerebrospinal fluid or urine was carried out. Data on climate was extracted from the Israel Meteorological Service. RESULTS: Neuroinvasive disease was reported in 70% of cases and case-fatality rate was 16%...
