pneumocystitis carini

M A Meĭmarian
The goal of the present study was to discover etiological role of Pneumocystis carini/jiroveci and to determine frequency of pneumocystic infection in the structure of bronchopulmonary pathology among armenians-liquidators of accident consequences in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. For the study, 65 patients-liquidators with diagnosed pneumonia, 44 liquidators with chronic bronchitis and 34 with bronchial asthma were examined. The control group was included 65 patients with pneumonia, 44 with chronic bronchitis, 34 with bronchial asthma which were unlinked with radionucleotide aggression...

An autopsy case of HIV positive patient with multiple opportunistic infections is described. We received heart, lungs, spleen and both the kidneys along with pieces of cerebrum for anatomy and histopathological examination. Histology of organs revealed disseminated non-granulomatous necrotizing type of tissue reaction with superadded infection with Cryptococcus neoformans (C. neoformans) in liver and brain. Pneumocysts carini (P. carini) induced pneumonia in lungs, disseminated mycobacterial infection in spleen, lungs, liver and kidneys and acute fibrinous meningitis with superadded infection with C...

Pneumocysts have been detected in the sputum in patients with nonspecific lung diseases (56 +/- 2%), including those with acute (43 +/- 4%) and chronic (63 +/- 3%) pneumocystosis, in those with a severe course (70.8 +/- 8%); in those with a satisfactory condition (48 +/- 3%); in those with occupational hazards (78 +/- 7%) in smokers (56 +/- 7%); in those without occupational hazards (39 +/- 3%); in those with an inflammation in the upper lobe of the lung in the presence of pneumonia (84 +/- 7%), in cold (62 +/- 3%) and warm (48 +/- 4) seasons, in north (66 +/- 3%) and south (28 +/- 4%) regions...

A total of 189 children with bacterial complications of the acute respiratory viral infection (ARVI)--primarily with pneumonia and bronchitis--were dynamically examined for typical and atypical pneumotropic causative agents of the infection process (Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia spp., Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Pneumocystis carini, and Citomegalovirus). A high frequency rate of the associative infection involving mycoplasmas and pneumocysts was registered (45-50%); it was lower in the cases involving Chlamydias, hemophilic bacteria, pneumococcus, and cytomegalovirus--up to 25-30%...

AIDS-related lymphoma was not apparent until 1985, when a statistically significant increase in the frequency of lymphoma had occurred. Over 50% are high-grade lymphoma, either immunoblastic or small, noncleaved cells (Burkitt's-like lymphoma), with involvement of extranodal sites such as the central nervous system (> one-third of patients), gastrointestinal tract, skin and bone marrow. Optimal therapy for AIDS-associated lymphoma has not yet been defined. Using intensive chemotherapy protocols, high response rates, albeit of brief duration, have been demonstrated...

While AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) certainly represents a worldwide health problem, the attention of many researchers and epidemiologists, besides the WHO itself, has recently focused on Africa for the following reasons: 1) The etiologic agent of AIDS, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (previously named HTLV-III or LAV) is likely to have originated in Africa. Solid evidence has been accumulated that antibodies against HIV were present in African sera collected in the early 1960s. In the same period widespread infection by viruses strictly related to HIV has been documented in primates living in tropical Africa...
