Characteristics of Campylobacter, Salmonella Infections and Acute Gastroenteritis in Older Adults in Australia, Canada, and the United States.

Clin Infect Dis 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Department of Epidemiology, Colorado School of Public Health, Aurora, CO, United States.

Background: The early detection of enteric infections in older adults is challenging because typical signs and symptoms of disease may be less common, absent, or overlooked. Understanding illness characteristics of enteric infections among older adults could improve the timeliness and accuracy of clinical diagnoses, thereby improving patient outcomes and increasing cases reported to surveillance.

Methods: This study describes illness characteristics (percentage reporting bloody diarrhea, fever, vomiting, abdominal pain, percentage hospitalized, duration of hospitalization, and duration of illness) among older adults (≥65 years) with acute gastroenteritis and culture-confirmed Campylobacter and nontyphoidal Salmonella infections in Australia, Canada, and the United States, and compares these characteristics with those among younger adults (25-64 years) and children (<5 years, 5-24 years).

Incomplete intestinal obstruction as an initial and persistent presentation in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Dec;97(49):e13538

Department of Neurology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei.

Here, we report a very unusual case of CIDP with severe autonomic symptom, intestinal obstruction, as initial and persistent symptom which responded well to high-dose glucocorticoid and intravenous immunoglobulin treatment.

Patient Concerns: We described a patient with CIDP with precedent and long-lasting incomplete intestinal obstruction. Read More

T-Cell Large Granular Lymphocytic Leukemia - Case Reports.

Acta Clin Croat 2018 Jun;57(2):362-365

Department of Hematology, Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Centre, Zagreb, Croatia.

T-cell large granular lymphocytic leukemia (T-LGLL) is an uncommon but probably underdiagnosed disease caused by clonal proliferation of large granular lymphocytes. Diagnosis is typically based on the high number of morphologically characteristic lymphoid cells and finding of an abnormal immunophenotype by flow cytometry. Because of its relatively indolent clinical behavior, observation is often an appropriate therapy. Read More
