Syringomyelia: an early complication of tuberculous meningitis

, : Syringomyelia: an early complication of tuberculous meningitis. Tropical Doctor 36(4): 254-255

Pleural involvement is a rare presentation of brucellosis. We report a patient referred for the evaluation of fever, right-sided pleural effusion and hilar lymph node enlargement. The pleural fluid revealed exudative characteristics with the predominance of neutrophils. Brucella melitensis was isolated from bone marrow, pleural effusion and blood cultures. The diagnosis was also confirmed by demonstration of a high Brucella agglutinin titre.

The relationship between the physical chemistry and biology of self-assembly is poorly understood, but it will be critical to quantitatively understand infection and for the design of antivirals that target virus genesis. Here we take advantage of...
