Acanthamoeba encephalitis.

Indian J Med Microbiol 2008 Apr-Jun;26(2):182-4

Department of Microbiology, Dayanand Medical College and Hospital, Ludhiana-141 001, Punjab, India.

Central nervous system infection with free-living amoebae is rare. We present a fatal case of Acanthamoeba encephalitis in a 63-year-old female from India where acanthamoebae were demonstrated and cultured from CSF. In spite of treatment with amphotericin B, fluconazole and rifampicin the patient did not survive. Amoebic infection should be suspected in a patient of encephalitis of unexplained aetiology as timely diagnosis can lead to a favourable outcome.

Syncope in a middle aged male due to acute rheumatic fever.

Indian Heart J 2004 Nov-Dec;56(6):668-9

Dayanand Medical College and Hospital, Ludhiana, Punjab.

Rheumatic fever is a multi system disease which occurs following infection with group A beta hemolytic streptococcus. It is commonest in the age group of 5-15 years but can occur in adults also. First degree atrioventricular block is a common manifestation of acute rheumatic fever and is included in the Jones criteria but Wenckebacks phenomena and complete heart block are relatively rare manifestations of rheumatic fever. Syncope occurring in acute rheumatic fever is also infrequently reported. We report the case of a 38-year-old male with rheumatic carditis who had advanced atrioventricular block which resulted in syncope and required a temporary pacemaker insertion.
