Correlation between the invasive fungal infection among and their blood glucose levels

), cardiovascular diseases (13 cases), drug poisoning (3 cases), multi-organ function failures (2 cases), and other diseases (1 case). The inclusion criteria included (1) length of stay at the ICU ≥2 days and (2) age of patient >20 years. The exclusion criteria were (1) diabetes mellitus and (2) invasive fungal infection prior to admission to the ICU. We obtained fasting venous blood samples from the patients to determine their BGLs in the morning. The patients were grouped as follows: (1) Group A: BGL ≤ 6.1 mmol/L; (2) Group B: 6.1 mmol/L W BGL ≤ 10.0 mmol/L; and (3) Group C

Treatment of tuberculosis infection complicated with liver transplant

is less likely to occur with only a few cases reported [ 6 , 11 ], and the third accounts for 5% of all the cases with active TB after an organ transplant [ 8 ]. The risk factors for an infection of active TB in SOT patients mainly involve [ 1 , 5 ] whether the patients are aged, AB blood type, non-white, or complicated with other diseases, such as chronic renal failure, hematodialysis, chronic liver disease, diabetes mellitus, graft rejection, and have received immunosuppressants [ 12 ]. Purified protein derivative (PPD)-positive before and after transplant and

Unusual clinical course of trichinellosis with relapse


During an outbreak of trichinellosis in Eastern Slovakia in 2008, 16 people were hospitalized, including 10 patients having specific anti-Trichinella antibodies. The disease relapse was seen in a 68-year-old woman two weeks after her discharge from hospital, where she was treated with albendazole and prednisone for 10 days. Clinical symptoms of trichinellosis, eosinophilia, elevated CRP and LDH levels were observed again with recorded elevation of aminotransferase levels during the relapse. Herein we discuss a potential cause of unusual relapse of trichinellosis with liver damage in a female patient with type II diabetes mellitus.

Factors Associated with Death Due to 2009 Influenza A (H1N1) Virus Infection and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Beijing, 2009 - 2011


Objective Patients with H1N1 virus infection were hospitalized and quarantined, and some of them developed into acute respiratory failure, and were transfered to the medical intensive care unit of Beijing Ditan Hospital, Capital Medical University in Beijing, China.

Methods The clinical features and preliminary epidemiologic findings among 30 patients with confirmed H1N1 virus infection who developed into acute respiratory failure for ventilatory support were investigated.

Results A total of 30 patients (37.43 ± 18.80 years old) with 2009 influenza A (H1N1) related acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) received treatment with mechanical ventilation, 15 cases of whom were male and 17 cases died of ARDS. Fatal cases were significantly associated with an APACHE Ⅱ score (P = 0.016), but not with PaO2/FIO2 (P = 0.912) and chest radiograph (P = 0.333). The most common complication was acute renal failure (n = 9). Five patients received extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), 3 of whom died and the others survived. The major causes of death were multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) (39%), intractable respiratory failure (27%) and sepsis (20%).

Conclusions Most patients with respiratory failure due to influenza A (H1N1) virus infection were young, with a high mortality, particularly associated with APACHE ∥ score, secondary infection of lung or type 2 diabetes mellitus.
