INTRODUCTION: Oxidative stress (OS) plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory lung diseases. OBJECTIVES: (1) We determined whether acute bronchiolitis (AB) caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) induced OS; (2) assessed whether OS biomarkers correlated with the severity of RSV-AB; and (3) studied whether the levels of interleukins are associated with OS biomarkers. METHODS: We performed an observational study by comparing healthy infants (Group 1) with RSV-AB infants, classified as Group 2 (pulse oximetry (SpO2 ) >93%), and Group 3 (SpO2  ≤ 92%), which needed oxygen therapy...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have reported on the presence of Murine Mammary Tumor Virus (MMTV)-like gene sequences in human cancer tissue specimens. Here, we search for MMTV-like gene sequences in lung diseases including carcinomas specimens from a Mexican population. This study was based on our previous study reporting that the INER51 lung cancer cell line, from a pleural effusion of a Mexican patient, contains MMTV-like env gene sequences. RESULTS: The MMTV-like env gene sequences have been detected in three out of 18 specimens studied, by PCR using a specific set of MMTV-like primers...

INTRODUCTION: Hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome (HCPS) is an acute infectious disease characterized by sudden cardiorespiratory failure and high mortality, caused by a RNA virus of the genus Hantavirus, family Bunyaviridae, 15% of Chilean cases have been detected in the Araucania Region. OBJECTIVE: To determine in fatal cases of HCPS, clinical and morphological characteristics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Descriptive-retrospective analysis of seven fatal cases with postmortem study of HCPS, attended between 1997 and 2009 at the Hospital of Temuco, Chile...

Systemic diseases affecting the cornea have a wide range of manifestations. The detailed study of all pathologies that cause corneal alteration is unapproachable, so we have centered our interest in the most prevalent or characteristic of them. In this paper we have divided these pathologies in sections to facilitate their study. Pulmonar and conective tissue (like colagen, rheumatologic and idiopathic inflamatory diseases), dermatologic, cardiovascular, hematologic, digestive and hepatopancreatic diseases with corneal alteration are described...

40 year-old male recently diagnosed with Crohn's disease. A routine chest X ray showed a round, well defined opacity in right lung field. A chest CT scan confirmed the finding and also described bronchiectasis. Patient had no respiratory symptoms. He was prescribed with oral sulfasalazine and corticosteroids with rapid improvement of intestinal symptoms as well as resolution of the pulmonary opacity. We describe the clinical presentation of a male newly diagnosed with Crohn's disease who was found to have an asymptomatic pulmonary lesion on imaging studies...

During the 7 years from 1990, thirty-two patients (20 in male and 12 in female, mean age; 53 years old) were diagnosed as having pulmonary cryptococcosis. To clarify the essential points for early diagnosis of pulmonary cryptococcosis, we reviewed the clinical records and chest images. Three patients had a past history of pulmonary tuberculosis and eleven patients had underlying disorders such as malignancy, chronic pulmonary diseases and so on, but no HIV infection, which would affect this disease. Eighteen patients did not have any past history nor complications...
