Mycobacterium chelonae is a rapidly growing nontuberculous mycobacteria, ubiquitous in the environment and mostly involved in skin, soft tissue and bone infections. An atypical, severe and multifocal dermatological manifestation of Mycobacterium chelonae infection in an immunocompetent patient is described here. The lesions completely resolved using a multidisciplinary approach. This case emphasizes the important aspects of diagnosis, antimicrobial and surgical management.

Burke A Cunha
In young adults with acute pharyngitis, the main differential diagnosis is between GAS pharyngitis, EBV infectious mononucleosis, or other causes of viral pharyngitis. A positive RST does not differentiate GAS colonization from infection as is well illustrated by this case. Laboratory test results must be interpreted in the appropriate clinical context to be diagnostically meaningful. The RST only detects group A streptococci, but does not, of itself, implicate a causative role in the patient's pharyngitis...

Streptococcus suis (S. suis) is a zoonotic pathogen commonly found in Asian countries. Infection with this bacterium typically clinically presents as meningitis and individuals whom handle swine are at increased risk of developing infections. We present a case of a patient with a S. suis meningitis who worked as a butcher. The 48-year-old man was admitted to our department with headaches, fevers, nausea and bilateral hearing loss. According to his medical history, the patient had sustained a cut on his finger while preparing pork meat...

A clinical case is presented here of a patient from Afganistan. We found intraerythrocytic parasites consistent with malaria vivax. Additionally extraerythrocytic structures were seen. First a co-infection with Borrelia recurrentis was discussed later these structures were identified as male plasmodia microgametes resulting from exflagellation.

A 48-year-old male presented to our hospital with pyrexia and general fatigue. The patient was diagnosed with influenza A virus infection, and then given laninamivir octanoate hydrate. Eleven days after onset, he noticed bilateral swollen submandibular glands. He visited our hospital again, and underwent blood examination and cervical computed tomography (CT). CT indicated that bilateral submandibular glands were swelling. We believe that this is the first report of bilateral submandibular sialadenitis following influenza A virus infection, and thus we presented this patient...

BACKGROUND: Opportunistic infections with Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (PCP) are common in patients with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and are encountered once the CD4 count decreases below 200 cells/mm3. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) tends to cause disease once the CD4 count drops below 50 cells/mm3. CMV pneumonitis is not common in this population. However, detecting its presence in broncho-alveolar lavage (BAL) fluid has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The role of antiviral therapy against CMV remains unclear...

Muscle hematomas are rare complications in dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF). We report a case of 58-year-old-female admitted with dengue fever who developed spontaneous rectus sheath hematoma complicating DHF. She presented with progressive thrombocytopenia with platelet count reaching 13000/μL at its lowest point. There was evidence of plasma leakage and persistent cough during the course of illness. During the recovery phase, she reported severe abdominal pain and developed hematoma in the right rectus sheath, which was confirmed by abdominal computed-tomography scan and serial magnetic resonance imaging...

PJP (Pneumocystis jirovecii) is a fungal agent by taxonomy. Ones considered a protozoan, it is now recognized as fungi based on ribosomal RNA and other gene sequence homologies, the composition of their cell walls, and structure of key enzymes. This organism generally affects immunocompromised hosts with a CD4 count <200 or <15%.Review of literature does support a rare occurrence of PJP infections in immunocompetent hosts.PJP can occur at normal CD 4 levels.

We describe a case of a 29-year-old man from Pakistan who presented with progressive neurologic symptoms over 1 week and was found to have a right parietal cerebral abscess. Neurosurgical drainage cultures showed growth of Actinomyces meyeri, Streptococcus intermedius, and Parvimonas micra. An abscessed molar was identified as the likely port of entry and was extracted. The patient was treated with metronidazole, vancomycin, and doxycycline because of prior anaphylaxis to penicillin. At 6-month follow-up, repeat magnetic resonance imaging showed no signs of residual abscess...

Invasive infections due to Pseudomonas stutzeri have rarely been described and mainly occur in immunocompromised individuals. We report a case of infective endocarditis caused by P. stutzeri after previous cardiac surgery in a Lebanese patient with Marfan syndrome. We review the literature and conclude that this pathogen may be of particular medical relevance in the Mediterranean Basin.

Capnocytophaga canimorsus is a gram-negative rod that can be transmitted primarily by dog bites. This life-threatening organism commonly causes sepsis in patients with splenectomy or alcoholism. A 53-year-old rheumatoid arthritis male treated with methotrexate (MTX) for 5 years was admitted for a 4-day history of fever and dyspnea. He had been bitten on a finger by the family dog 4 days before onset. Laboratory tests revealed pancytopenia, acute renal failure, and evidence of disseminated intravascular coagulation, and he subsequently developed acute respiratory distress syndrome...

Lemierre's syndrome has been shown to be increasing in incidence in the past 20 years with one popular suggesting that said rise occurred from less aggressive antibacterial coverage. We report a case of Lemierre's syndrome and also reviewed the 15 most recent case reports. A previously healthy 25 year old male who initially developed sore throat and flu-like symptoms, was prescribed antibacterials as an outpatient but was hospitalized for worsening symptoms. He was later diagnosed with Lemierre's syndrome and improved clinically with IV antimicrobials alone...

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare inflammatory condition with tissue destruction due to abnormal immune activation. We present a series of 2 cases of cytomegalovirus-induced HLH in children during maintenance chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. These cases emphasize the importance of considering secondary HLH in this high-risk subset of pediatric patients.

The article presents the results of the prospective study of 266 patients with dirofilariasis who received medical and diagnostic assistance in Rostov Scientific Research Institute of Microbiology and Parasitology in Rostov-on-Don, Russia from 2000 to 2016. We have assessed the features of the dynamics of epidemiology of this infection in several territories of the Russian Federation, depending on the social structure of patients. Immature females of dirofilaria were found most commonly in humans (82.9 ± 2...

Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a rare but life-threatening multisystem disease known to develop in the early postoperative period after various surgery. We report a rare case in which a patient who underwent Caesarean section developed TSS caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) on the 39th postoperative day. She was treated with debridement because of the possible diagnosis of necrotizing soft tissue infections. Culture test from the resected specimen was positive for MRSA. She was diagnosed with TSS caused by suture abscess and was treated with intensive care including antimicrobials...
