Tuberculosis (TB) is the most important infectious disease all over the world, with a high morbidity and mortality. Pediatric tuberculosis has been a neglected epidemic, due to the difficulties in assessing its global impact, reduced incidence and lower infectivity compared to adults. In 2015, the WHO reported 1 million cases of paediatric TB and 169,000 deaths. In Europe, the emergence of MDR TB is a major concern, representing 16% of the new diagnosis in Eastern Europe. In 2014, it was estimated that about 219,000 children were infected by MDR-TB-strains in Europe, and 2,120 developed the disease...

The early detection of isolates of mycobacterium of tuberculosis resistant to anti-tuberculosis pharmaceuticals is ultimately needed for optimization of treatment scheme and prevention of propagation of resistant strains. The literature review presents analysis of data concerning the new, fast and inexpensive technique of detection of mutations in genes of mycobacterium of tuberculosis competent for multiple medicinal resistance. The molecular genetic technique HRM (high resolution melting curve analysis) is based on implementation of amplification of DNA fragments with subsequent analysis of their curves of melting with high resolution...

In cells of micobacteria of all investigated samples the following ultrastructural changes were observed: disorganization of a nucleoid and citoplasm, formation of the citoplasmic vacuoles and endocellular lipide-like inclusions, and also change of the cells form into spheroid and formeless mass, disappearance of periplasmatic space, occurrence of cells of small-size and short incompletely divided cells in the samples. They were observed more often after 72 hours of exposition of the cultures with antibacterial substances, than after 24 hours of exposition...

Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) have been increasingly isolated over the last 20 years in Spain. However, as NTM disease is not a notifiable condition, there is no national registry, thus the true prevalence and incidence of these infections in children are difficult to estimate. Cervical adenitis is the most common clinical manifestation of NTM infection in immunocompetent children. The clinical course can be sub-acute or chronic, and is often associated with fluctuation, fistulisation, and scarring at a later stage...

BACKGROUND: Cationic bilayers based on the inexpensive synthetic lipid dioctadecyldimethylammonium bromide (DODAB) have been useful as carriers for drug delivery, immunoadjuvants for vaccines and active antimicrobial agents. METHODS: Rifampicin (RIF) or isoniazid (ISO) interacted with DODAB bilayer fragments (BF) or large vesicles (LV). Dispersions were evaluated by dynamic light-scattering for zeta-average diameter (Dz) and zeta-potential (ζ) analysis; dialysis for determination of drug entrapment efficiency; plating and CFU counting for determination of cell viability of Mycobacterium smegmatis or tuberculosis, minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) and synergism index for DODAB/drug combinations...

We studied the effect of preliminary loading of peritoneal macrophages with silicium dioxide on in vitro viability, phagocytosis of BCG strain mycobacteria, and the capability to destroy the phagocytosed mycobacterium tuberculosis. It was shown that preliminary loading of macrophages with silicium dioxide did not reduce their viability and stimulated phagocytosis of BCG strain mycobacteria, but reduced their antibacterial activity.

We report a case of extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type, with exclusive cerebral localization in a patient with AIDS. The patient presented with neurological alterations, fever and convulsions, so the initial presumptive diagnosis was an opportunistic brain infection. MRI showed a left parietal necrotic lesion and a stereotactic brain biopsy was performed for pathological, microbiological and molecular studies. Histological sections showed an angiocentric and angiodestructive growth pattern and the immunophenotype of this tumor was CD56+, CD45+, CD3+ (cytoplasmic), Granzyme B+ and Perforin+...

M. bovis, the agent of bovine tuberculosis, was in other times, the main ethiological agent of tuberculosis (TBC) in industrialized countries. At the moment, the human cases have become not very frequent, except in those countries where the illness is even endemic. In patients with immunodeficiency syndrome, it usually presents as a systemic illness. We present the case of a woman with AIDS and disseminated TBC caused by M. bovis. The isolated micobacteria turned out to be resistant to rifampin and pyrazinamide...

Given the current concern about multiresistance to drugs in tuberculosis, the data from a large study in two different centers are presented. At the Hospital Universitario Reina Sofía de Córdoba 71,359 clinical isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis were processed and at the Centro de Referencia de Micobacterias 2,350 cultures were studied. The percentage of total multiresistance at the Hospital Universitario was 6% from 1996-1998, and 6.7% at the Centro de Referencia in 1998. Although these figures are high, they are lower than in previous years and could indicate the beginning of a decreasing trend, following years of increasing in the 1990s...

All the cultures for mycobacteriae taken from 1967 to 1973 at the Hospital General del Centro Médico Nacional del Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social were reviewed. From 802 positive cultures, 361 (44.2 per cent) were atypical mycobacteriae. 89 per cent of them were scotochromogen, 10.3 per cent of rapid growth, one non-chromogen, and none were photochromogen. These data are in contrast with those observed in other countries. Isolation sources varied also from other reports, in this series the most common isolation were from urine specimens, sputum, feces and bone marrow...

In the present report evaluation of the possible metabolic changes in partially revertants of M. tuberculosis var. hominis, reisolated from strains at high levels of drug-resistance after treatment with mutagenic agents, was reported. Based on the data presented here, it must be concluded that no significant biological and biochemical differences in mycobacterial cells revertant from high mutants mono-resistant to four aminoglycosides (Sm, Kana, Vio, Neo) and p-aminonasalicylic acid (PAS) are to be found.
