Peritonitis due to Exophiala jeanselmei in a patient undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis

, : Peritonitis due to Exophiala jeanselmei in a patient undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. American Journal of Kidney Diseases 21(6): 673-675

We describe the second reported case of peritonitis caused by the fungus Exophiala jeanselmei in a patient on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and the first such patient to survive. Management of the patient consisted of Tenckhoff catheter removal and intravenous amphotericin B.

Growing evidence suggests that sleep is important for procedural learning, but few studies have investigated the effect of sleep on the temporal aspects of motor skill learning. We assessed the effect of a 90-min day-time nap on learning a motor t...

Multidetector CT (MDCT) gastrography has been regarded as a promising technique for the preoperative imaging of gastric cancer. It has the ability to produce various three-dimensional (3D) images. Because 3D reconstruction images are more effectiv...
