Acute encephalopathy in an immunocompromised boy with astrovirus-MLB1 infection detected by next generation sequencing

, : Acute encephalopathy in an immunocompromised boy with astrovirus-MLB1 infection detected by next generation sequencing. Journal of Clinical Virology 78: 66-70

We report a case of an immunodeficient 4-year-old boy with acute encephalopathy possibly related to human astrovirus-MLB1 infection. The astrovirus-MLB1 genome was identified in his stool, serum, cerebrospinal fluid, urine, and throat swabs by next generation sequencing. We present additional evidence showing human astroviruses are important infectious agents, regardless of their clades, involving the central nervous system in immunocompromised hosts.

Pain in the right iliac fossa in a patient infected with HIV raises several questions which can mislead or delay diagnosis leading to increased morbidity and mortality. We report 3 cases selected because of the difficulties encountered in diagnosi...

Using bovine vesicular gland microsomes and [14C]indomethacin we demonstrated the presence of a specific binding site for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Specific binding of [14C]indomethacin to microsomes was rapid, with most of the ligand...

Management of elderly patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is not standardized and physicians discretion for invasive versus conservative strategies lacks sufficient evidence. The purpose of this analysis was, therefore, to evaluate treatm...
