We report a case of a laboratory-confirmed Dengue and Chikungunya viruses co-infection imported from India to Portugal in early November 2016. The patient developed fever, retro-orbital pain and generalized myalgia after returning from Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Rishikesh, Goa and Mumbai. This case highlights the importance of these arboviruses to public health in India where high rates of co-infection have been reported in the last few years, and demonstrates how challenging the laboratory diagnosis of imported co-infection cases can be in non-endemic areas...

Miliary tuberculosis results from the lymphohematogenous spread of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and it is a rare form of this disease. The most affected places are the lymph nodes, pleura, and osteoarticular system, but any organ can be involved. Currently the disease is still endemic in developing countries by its close association with poor living conditions and malnutrition. Other comorbidities, particularly infection by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), diabetes mellitus, smoking and alcoholism are of great importance in the epidemiology of this disease...

To define the clinical manifestations and laboratory characteristics of pediatric severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) case caused by a novel bunyavirus. we retrospectively analyzed a pediatric case of viral SFTS in a 13 year old successfully managed and confirmed to be due to the novel bunyavirus now referred to as Huaiyangshan virus. A literature review of related cases was performed.Our pediatric case was a 13.3-year-old middle school student no underlying disease. Major clinical features included a fever with chills, headache, and dizziness...

Murine typhus has been increasingly reported as a cause of fever in returning travelers from Southeast Asia. We report a case of a previously healthy traveler returning from Bali with an non-specific febrile illness which quickly progressed to a severe form of interstitial pneumonia. After a careful epidemiological evaluation and laboratory analysis, murine typhus was diagnosed.

We report a case of a 17-year-old male who presented with pain in his right first toe. His pain and swelling had worsened and x-rays of his foot revealed erosive changes of the great toe distal phalanx suggesting possible osteomyelitis. His co-morbidities were morbid obesity and diabetes insipidus. He was admitted to the hospital, blood cultures were drawn, and he was started on vancomycin for presumed bacterial osteomyelitis. He underwent incision and drainage of the fluctuant abscess of the toe, where a culture of the wound was taken...

Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common bacterial cause of community acquired pneumonia. The current trend in Streptococcus pneumoniae infections has been the rise of multi-drug resistance in the last two decades. We present the case of a pair of 16-month old African-American fraternal twins who presented to the emergency room on the same day for symptoms consistent with pneumonia. Upon further examination, the twins showed remarkably similar symptoms, and cultures revealed penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae in both twins...

#11
Vincent H J F Mooren, Michiel W P Bleeker, Jakko van Ingen, Mirjam H A Hermans, Peter C Wever
A disseminated peritoneal dialysis-related Mycobacterium abscessus infection is very rare. M. abscessus belongs to the rapidly growing mycobacteria and can be misidentified as a diphtheroid bacterium, which in our case delayed diagnosis and optimal treatment. Due to intrinsic resistance to most antimicrobials, therapeutic options in M. abscessus infections are limited. Infection often leads to catheter loss. A fatal outcome, like in our case, is not exceptional.

Titanium plane screw fixation of the frontal sinus is an approach used by otolaryngologists to obliterate this space in an attempt to reduce sinus infections. In this case, however, the titanium used became a nidus of infection which cultured the fungus Paecilomyces. The patient also had a hypersensitivity reaction to mold with positive skin tests and IgE, as well as eosinophilic esophagitis. Treatment entailed anti-fungals, anti-IgE, and fungal immunotherapy to multiple fungal antigens prevalent to the geographic region...

BACKGROUND: Fusobacterium nucleatum is a strict anaerobic microorganism commensal to the human oropharynx and gastrointestinal tract, which causes a wide spectrum of human diseases and it is an important pathogen in abscesses. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a previously healthy 64-year-old woman with multiple abscesses due to Fusobacterium nucleatum, involving liver, pleura and brain. Fusobacterium was not recovered from blood cultures nor from culture of hepatic, pleural and brain drain fluid...

Zika virus (ZIKV) is a member of the Flaviviridae family causing asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic infections with fever, rash, arthralgia and headache. It is transmitted by the Aedes species mosquitoes and also sexually and transplacentally, and has been recently associated with congenital neurologic birth defects in South and Central America. We report the case of a newly married couple from Greece who travelled to Cuba for their honeymoon and developed mild symptoms consistent with arboviral infection. After returning to Greece, they were found to have been infected by Zika virus during their honeymoon...

Majd Alfreijat, Brian Wilhelmi
Coccidioidomycosis (CM) is an infection caused by the coccidioides fungus. The spectrum of the disease ranges from a mild upper respiratory illness to severe disseminated infection that could affects the bones, joints, skin, central nervous system, and the gastrointestinal tract. Previous reports of a positive stool culture in the setting of disseminated CM are extremely rare. Herein, we describe a case of a 43-year-old immunocompetent patient with disseminated CM and evidence of positive coccidioides stool culture...

Syphilis is a chronic systemic infectious disease. Gastric involvement is uncommon. We report of a 55-year-old female patient with a history of epigastric pain and a diagnosis of Syphilis confirmed by main clinical symptoms, tolulized red unheated serum test(TRUST) and treponema pallidum hemagglutination assay(TPHA). At the same time, we still reported gastric involvement about syphilis in this patient with gastroscopy and pathology.

Human infection with Leptospira interrogans can be life-threatening. Multiple organ involvement frequently presents with liver and kidney failure, less commonly including severe hemolysis and pulmonary hemorrhage syndrome. Here, we present a fulminant case of leptospirosis presenting with hemolysis and pulmonary hemorrhage. A formerly healthy 34 year old patient presented to a rural hospital with dyspnea and hemoptysis after a week of influenza-like symptoms. Initial assessment revealed severe sepsis, acute kidney failure and severe hemolysis...

Cerebral vasculopathy due to varicella-zoster virus (VZV) infection is well-documented. We report a fatal case of VZV multifocal vasculopathy in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who presented with subacute changes in mental status and had multiple areas of hemorrhagic infarcts on brain imaging. However, the correct diagnosis was delayed by several confounding factors including the absence of zoster rash, normal cerebral angiography, persistently low cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) glucose and negative initial polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for VZV DNA in the CSF...
