Stereotactic needle biopsy, a standard of care for acquiring deep-seated pathology, has limitations and risks in some situations. We present an uncommon case with basal ganglia dematiaceous mycetoma. Due to the firm consistency of the lesion, the initial stereotactic needle biopsy failed to provide a diagnosis. In a second operation, transtubular excisional biopsy was successfully performed to remove the entire mycetoma. We reviewed recent case series of transtubular approaches to deep-seated brain lesions and suggest this method could be a rescue for a non-diagnostic stereotactic needle biopsy and even may be the approach of choice in some cases.

An Outbreak of Human Parvovirus B19 Hidden by Dengue Fever.

Clin Infect Dis 2018 Oct 10. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Department of Microbiology, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Background: Seasonal outbreaks of dengue often result in hundreds of dengue-suspected cases where a clinical diagnosis cannot be confirmed. Usually, during large outbreaks of dengue and other pathogens that can cause acute febrile illnesses, the search for secondary pathogens with similar disease outcomes is rare.

Methods: Using total RNA sequencing and targeted diagnostic assays, we discovered an outbreak of parvovirus B19 in dengue-suspected patients that occurred from November 2013 to February 2014. Read More

Gene Polymorphisms and Dyslipidemia in HIV Infected Adult Zimbabweans.

Open AIDS J 2016 30;10:190-198. Epub 2016 Sep 30.

Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences, College of Health Sciences, University of Zimbabwe, Harare, Zimbabwe.

Background: Dyslipidemia does not occur in all HIV-infected or antiretroviral therapy-experienced patients suggesting role of host genetic factors but there is paucity of data on association between dyslipidemia and gene polymorphisms in Zimbabwe.

Objective: To determine association of lipoprotein levels and polymorphisms in HIV-infected adults.

Method: Demographic data were collected from 103 consenting patients; lipoprotein levels were determined and blood samples were successfully genotyped for both 2488C>T Xba1 and 4154G>A p. Read More

Molecular dynamics investigations of modulated phases in organic materials.

Acta Crystallogr A 2005 Jan 22;61(Pt 1):19-27. Epub 2004 Dec 22.

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne Laboratoire de Cristallographie, BSP, 1015 Lausanne, EPFL, Switzerland.

In order to apply the molecular dynamics (MD) method to simulate modulated phases in organic materials, a compensating external pressure tensor is proposed to compensate for the deficiencies of the force field applied in the simulation. MD can well reproduce modulated phases that have been measured by diffraction. Mechanisms of incommensurate modulation are revealed from the simulations. Read More
