The classic findings in patients with TORCH infections include rash in the mother during pregnancy and ocular findings in the newborn. Zika virus has emerged as an important worldwide congenital infection. It fits well with other congenital TORCH infections since there is a rash in the mother and there are commonly ocular abnormalities in the newborn...

Brain MRI is less accessible than CT scan, but can provide crucial information with patients presenting with acute encephalitis. METHOD: We performed a literature review on PubMed on April 1, 2015 with the search terms "MRI" and "encephalitis"...

VL is endemic in 12 districts of central and eastern Terai lowlands of Nepal bordering North Bihar, India with an estimated 8 million population at risk. In addition, VL endemicity is also extending to new endemic regions like Dharan from its classical rural foci.

Daniel Turner 1667-1741 was the first English medical author to use the term syphillis incidentally, also mentioning early usage of the condom (condum). This paper shows that venereologists in 18th century London wrote on the use of condoms by some men, but who were sceptical about its usage. This paper also describes some of the contemporary spellings of condum and syphillis.

Of the 4549 patients who attended the clinic 3621 (79.6%) were males and 928 (20.4%) were females. The commonest STD was Chancroid (24.4%) in men and Syphillis (29%) in women.

The Museum of Pathological Anatomy of the Regina Elena City Hospital of Trieste houses various pathological preparations of infective and contagious diseases, dating back to the early 1900's (ileo-typhus, dysentery, tuberculosis, syphillis, pulmonary plague, etc.) together with their relative diagnostic certificates. These bear witness to the key role of the Hospital's Anatomical Institute (in operation operating since 1872) during the height of the Pasteurian age. In fact, the Institute houses several anatomical-pathological preparations from a fatal clinical case of "acute human glanders"...
