We report an interesting case of hepatitis C virus-negative type II cryoglobulinaemic vasculitis (CV) in a patient with a background history of systemic lupus erythematosus. The type II CV became less...
Aluminum phosphide (AlP) is an insecticide and rodenticide that produces phosphine gas when exposed to moisture. Exposure to AIP has been described as through inhalation and ingestion routes and is ty...
The incidence of carbapenem-resistant (CRE) infections is increasing, and these infections are associated with both morbidity and mortality. However, little is known about CRE infections in children....
Bloodstream infections caused by carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) are associated with treatment failure and increased mortality. Detection of CPE from blood cultures (BC) by standard m...
Although rare cases of prolymphocytic transformation from splenic B-cell lymphomas and follicular lymphoma have been reported, prolymphocytic transformation from lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma has not bee...
The relationship between shock, ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury, hemodynamic instability, systemic inflammatory response syndrome and multiorgan failure has been extensively investig...
This study evaluates the association between near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and indexed oxygen delivery (DO2i) and their possible correlation with postoperative organ failure.
Patients with acute on chronic liver failure have a risk of developing multiorgan failure and a high mortality. The current scoring systems defining the outcome of patients with acute deco...
Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is an ailment with high incidence of multiorgan failure (MOF) and consequent mortality. Systemic inflammation and susceptibility to infection are char...
Multiorgan failure (MOF) as a result of any critical condition is a complex set of immunological and biochemical interactions leading to death in patients who are effectively subjected to ...
A genus of gram-negative, aerobic, rod- or vibroid-shaped or fusiform bacteria that commonly produce a stalk. They are found in fresh water and soil and divide by binary transverse fission.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Non-nucleated disk-shaped cells formed in the megakaryocyte and found in the blood of all mammals. They are mainly involved in blood coagulation.
A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic coccobacillus-shaped bacteria that has been isolated from pneumonic lesions and blood. It produces pneumonia with accompanying fibrinous pleuritis in swine.
