Paracoccidioidomycosis is the most prevalent mycosis in South America. Mucocutaneous and lymph node involvement is the most frequent affectation of this disease in our country, with the intestinal commitment rarely reported. We report 4 cases of colonic manifestation with abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea, and weight loss. The diagnosis was made with biopsy and Gomori stain. The average age was 29 years old. The colonoscopy showed many ulcers in the ileum distal and colon. We found VIH as comorbidity in one patient...

Rapid test represents a good opportunity to improve the access to early screening of HIV. The objective of this study is to report the experience of the infectious diseases unit of the Ibn Rochd University hospital center of Casablanca, in the use of the rapid test in clinical screening of HIV. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This retrospective study reports data relevant to the use of the rapid test Determine VIH-1/2, Abbott Diagnostics, since its introduction in the infectious diseases unit in April 2006 up to December 2009...

Several parasites are responsible for life threatening infections in immunocompromised patients. They occur in patients with a profound immunodeficiency affecting the T-cell mediated immunity. In AIDS patients, opportunistic infections are highly prevalent in those with CD4 lymphocyte counts < 200/mm3. Most of these parasites are intracellular protozoa. Severe parasitic infections in immunocompromised hosts either results from the reactivation of a previously acquired infection, such as toxoplasmosis, or from a primary acquired infection which manifests more severely because of the immune defect: this is the case for intestinal protozoa, such as Cryptosporidium, microsporidia, Cyclospora and Isospora belli which can be the cause of severe chronic diarrhea and for visceral leishmaniasis...

Cryptosporidium and Microsporidian play an important part in the diarrhoeic pathology of the immunocompromised patients. The study of 35 cases of cryptosporidiosis and 4 cases of intestinal microsporidiosis diagnosed in the parasitology laboratory of Rabta hospital of Tunis shows that cryptosporidiosis prevalence is 17.24% for AIDS patients, 3.45% for immunocompromised patients VIH (-), and microsporidiosis prevalence is 5.7% for patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Common points for these two parasitosis are: Clinical syndromes dominated by an acute diarrhea A diagnosis based on specific techniques showing the significance of the clinical orientation...
