Mucormycosis osteomyelitis in the hand

, : Mucormycosis osteomyelitis in the hand. Orthopedics 22(4): 449-450

A case is reported in a 52-year-old diabetic woman from the USA who developed osteomyelitis in the right hand as demonstrated by bone scan and computed tomography. Irrigation and drainage of the hand was performed and examination of the tissues revealed non-septate hyphae. Amphotericin B (total dose 2 g) was given postoperatively. The patient experienced a myocardial infarction and required intraperitoneal dialysis for renal insufficiency.

Actinomycin D, cycloheximide, and amino acid analogues inhibited this increase. Both GA3 and cAMP appear...

Objectives: Dendritic cells (DC) are potential first target cells in sexually transmitted HIV-1 infection. They are also considered to be central in the activation of naive T cells, which thereupon can become permissive for HIV-1. In addition, act...
