Salmonella enterica serovar Choleraesuis is the aetiological agent of swine paratyphoid being a highly invasive zoonotic pathogen. Wild boar natural populations are experiencing a demographical expansion as well as some farms are breeding this species to release for hunting with management sometimes identical to that of domestic pigs, including supplementation, grouping, and antibiotic treatments. This situation increases the chance of contact between wild boars and livestock, and potentially induces stress, with different sanitary consequences...

Cat Scratch Disease (CSD) is an infectious disorder which appears after cat scratching particularly in children and adolescents. Bartonella henselae is the etiologic agent more frequently involved. There are only a few recent reports demonstrating the disease after transplantation, although the illness is not infrequent in immunologically competent people. Indeed CSD in transplant receptors has only been recently emphasized in the literature and it was concluded that fever and lymphadenopathy in patients who had been exposed to cats should prompt clinicians to maintain a suspicion for the infection...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Endocarditis is a rare and serious complication of human brucellosis. The diagnosis is suspected in cases of endocarditis without response to conservative antibiotic treatment and it is confirmed with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test, titers being higher than 1:160. The treatment is usually a surgery, followed with antibiotics for long period of time. Some cases can be cured with antibiotic treatment only, with antibiotics such as doxiciclin, rifampicin, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin and tetracycline...

INTRODUCTION: Antibiotics are substances that possess bacteriostatic or bactericidal effect. Their administration is widespread in the treatment as well as in the prevention of many infections in general population, and especially in vulnerable groups. THE ELDERLY AND ANTIBIOTICS: Respiratory and urinary infections are the most common infections in the elderly. The initial empirical antibiotic therapy of pneumonia in older patients is directed to possible causative agents...

We describe a case of a 47 years old male, with a history of 2 days of progressive, ascendant, symmetrical weakness in the lower extremities; a lumbar puncture was performed after the brain CT scan, as well as an electromyography, evidencing pure motor polyradiculopathy with axonal pattern, compatible with Guillain Barre syndrome. Afterwards, he received four plasmapheresis sessions, with clinical improvement from the second session. Due to his epidemiological background, Brucella set testing was done. Rose Bengal was positive, antibiotic treatment with rifampin and doxicicline was initiated, as well as rehabilitation...

Actinomyces meyeri cutaneous actinomycosis is a very rare disease. It often results from contiguous dissemination of an underlying focus. We report a case of pulmonary actinomicosis with secondary cutaneous involvement which led to the diagnosis. A 51-year-old man presented with an indurated, erythematous plaque on his right chest wall. He had been diagnosed with pneumoniae one month prior ago and received antibiotic treatment but symptoms persisted. Fibrobroncoscopy was normal and bronchoalveolar lavage samples were negative...

OBJECTIVE: To report a brucellar orchiepididymitis case and to review the diagnosis and treatment of this pathology. METHOD: We present the case of a 62 year old man presenting with fever, testicular pain and constitutional syndrome. The diagnosis was made after ultrasound, blood cultures and anamnesis. RESULTS: The treatment was Doxiciclin six weeks and teicoplanin, the second one was replaced with ciprofloxacin. CONCLUSION: It is important to make a correct anamnesis to the patient with orchiepididymitis to identify any risk factor for brucellosis...

We present the clinical case of a man of 68 years who was admitted for dizziness and sensation of loss of conscience. The clinical examination revealed a body temperature of 37.5 degrees C and a murmur of mitral regurgitation. The echocardiogram showed a severe mitral regurgitation and left cavitie's dilatation; transesophageal echocardiogram showed a vegetation in the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve. In blood cultures grew a Gram-negative bacteria identified as Bartonella spp. A PCR demonstrated that it was a Bartonella quintana...

The complex study of 104 vaginal samples from patients with urogenital uroplasmosis was carried out. U. parvum were detected in 67.3% patients, U. urealyticum--in 12.5% and in 20.1% cases--two species were registered at the same time. Isolation of clinical significant concentration of both ureaplasma (> 10(4) CFU/ ml) was detected in about 50% of cases. Expression of inflammation of vaginal mucus depended on the level of concentration of infection agents. U. parvum were associated with bacterial vaginosis, while in urogenital candidosis U...

A case of a 39 year old HIV negative female patient with a Mycobacterium fortuitum mastitis without previous pathogenic history is reported. She was treated on the bases of drug-susceptibility testing and bibliographic empirical evidence with kanamycin, doxicicline, ciprofloxacin and trimetoprim-sulfametoxazol. A complete remission of her lesions was obtained after 15 months of treatment. Lesions due to this rapidly growing mycobacterium, diagnosis and treatment are commented.

Food-borne infections are the most serious food safety problem in the world. In fact, they are responsible of millions of illnesses and thousand of deaths. Non-typhoid Salmonella infection is frequent world-wide and, although mild and self-limiting illness in normal subjects, it may cause a severe disease in patients with an immune-deficiency. Changes in the agents and in the vehicles of transmission and a higher number of patients with immune-depression have determined a world-spread of non-typhoid Salmonella infection in the last decades...

All series of infective endocarditis had a variable proportion of cases without an etiologic agent because all cultures were negative. New microbiologic techniques have permitted the discovery of the role of many microorganisms in infective endocarditis. C. burnetii is an increasing causative agent of subacute infective endocarditis. In the diagnosis, to the detection of antiphase-I antibodies, immunohistochemical, molecular techniques and cellular cultures have been added. Total cure is difficult to obtain...

Susceptibility to antibiotics of 39 Campylobacter jejuni/coli strains was appreciated using the modified disc method (sowing by loop). Eighteen strains were examined in duplicate using the conventional disc susceptibility method (sowing by inundation). Based on the diameters (mm) of growth inhibition zones and on the respective critical concentrations (mcg/ml) the MICs were also appreciated. All the strains were resistant to rifampicin, polymyxin M sulphate, ketokonazole, cephalotin, cephazolin; most of the strains were resistant to carbenicillin, one third to ampicillin and almost one fifth to polymyxin E...

The adjuvant injection of wide-spectrum immunocorrector leukinferon to 45 males with gonorrheal-chlamydial urogenital infection receiving tarivid and doxicicline made the treatment shorter and the number of inflammatory complications and recurrences less numerous. Leukocyte and lymphocyte counts returned to normal values 6 days earlier and so did immunological indices. In control subjects (20 patients) on immunocorrection with tactivin inflammation persisted longer, urogenital complications were not cured, chlamydial recurrences occurred in 10% of the patients, immunological normalization was not reached...

35 cases of botonneuse Fever admitted in our hospital during the course of a year and a half are presented. They were all children between the age of 18 months and 11 years. The most common features were: fever, maculopapulous rush and "tache noir". Weil Felix test was not of diagnostic value in one third of the cases. 71 per cent of the children recieved etiological treatment (doxicicline or cloramfenicol); the remaining 29% only got simptomatic measures. A cure was achieved in every case. Nevertheless, the manifestatios lasted longer in those not treated with antibiotic therapy...

A case of 26 year old male with an infection caused by Rickettsia conorii (RC) associated to erythema nodosum (EN) is presented. The patient had EN together with a high temperature and toxic symptoms 2 weeks after camping in the mountains. The diagnosis was made by ascertaining IgM titers positive to RC by indirect immunofluorescence (IIF). The disease disappeared 24 hours after the initiation of treatment with doxiciclin. Based on this observation, we consider RC to be an etiologic agent which should be taken into account in the differential diagnosis of EN...
