Unusual cause of chest pain, Bornholm disease, a forgotten entity; case report and review of literature.

Respir Med Case Rep 2018 9;25:270-273. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Department of Internal Medicine, 123 Summer Street, Saint Vincent Hospital, Worcester, MA, 01608, USA.

Chest pain is a common symptom culminating in hospital admissions and specialist referrals. Although cardiac work up is pursued in most of the cases, cardiac etiology is found to be the culprit in minority of the cases. Acute chest pain is a clinical syndrome that may be caused by almost any condition affecting the thorax, abdomen, or internal organs. Read More

Clinical characteristics of 17 adult patients with epidemic myalgia associated with human parechovirus type 3 infection.

Rinsho Shinkeigaku 2017 09 31;57(9):485-491. Epub 2017 Aug 31.

A case of epidemic myalgia with symptoms resembling acute purulent spondylitis and discitis.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2016 08 4;17:323. Epub 2016 Aug 4.

Department of Internal Medicine, Hyogo Prefectural Kaibara Hospital, Tamba, Japan.

Background: Epidemic myalgia is a disease that presents with fever and extreme myalgia of the trunk due to an acute enterovirus infection. The trunk pain is mainly in the chest or in the epigastrium. We aimed to highlight a case of epidemic myalgia where initial diagnosis needed differentiation from acute purulent spondylitis and discitis. Read More

Epidemic myalgia and myositis associated with human parechovirus type 3 infections occur not only in adults but also in children: findings in Yamagata, Japan, 2014.

Epidemiol Infect 2016 Apr 20;144(6):1286-90. Epub 2015 Nov 20.

Department of Microbiology,Yamagata Prefectural Institute of Public Health,Yamagata,Japan.

We previously reported an association between human parechovirus type 3 (HPeV3) and epidemic myalgia with myositis in adults during summers in which an HPeV3 outbreak occurred in children. However, this disease association has not yet been reported elsewhere. We have since continued our surveillance to accumulate data on this disease association and to confirm whether myalgia occurs in children as well as adults. Read More

Epidemic myalgia associated with human parechovirus type 3 infection among adults occurs during an outbreak among children: findings from Yamagata, Japan, in 2011.

J Clin Virol 2013 Sep 20;58(1):188-93. Epub 2013 Jun 20.

Department of Microbiology, Yamagata Prefectural Institute of Public Health, Tokamachi 1-6-6, Yamagata 990-0031, Japan.

Background: Based on our findings in Yamagata, Japan, in 2008, we reported that human parechovirus type 3 (HPeV3) could be associated with epidemic myalgia among adults, although HPeV3 is generally associated with infectious diseases in children.

Objectives: To clarify the relationship between community outbreaks among children and myalgia through the continued surveillance of HPeV3 infections.

Study Design: In the summer season (June-August) of 2011, we collected 586 specimens from children with infectious diseases, and throat swabs, and stool and serum specimens from 5 patients with myalgia. Read More

Emerg Infect Dis 2012 Nov;18(11):1787-93

Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology Research and Education Center for Prevention of Global Infectious Diseases of Animals, Tokyo,

Human parechovirus has rarely been shown to cause clinical disease in adults. During June-August 2008, a total of 22 adults sought treatment at Yonezawa City Hospital in Yamagata, Japan, for muscle pain and weakness of all limbs; most also had fever and sore throat. All patients received a clinical diagnosis of epidemic myalgia; clinical laboratory findings suggested an acute inflammatory process. Read More

Centre for Musculoskeletal Research, University of Gävle, SE-801 76 Gävle, Sweden.

The aim of the study was to investigate autonomic nervous system regulation, physical activity (PA) and perceived stress and energy during daily activities in subjects with chronic muscle pain in the neck-shoulders (trapezius myalgia) (n=23) and symptom-free controls (n=22). Subjects underwent 24-hour objective ambulatory monitoring of heart rate variability (HRV) and PA, and reported their perceived stress and energy in a diary.

Development of a new method for diagnosis of Group B Coxsackie genome by reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification.

Indian J Med Microbiol 2011 Apr-Jun;29(2):110-7

Department of Virology, King Institute of Preventive Medicine, Guindy, Chennai 600 032, India.

Background: Coxsackie B viruses (genus, Enterovirus; family, Picornaviridae) can cause aseptic meningitis, encephalitis, pleurodynia, and fatal myocarditis, and are implicated in the pathogenesis of dilated cardiomyopathy. The differentiation of the group B Coxsackieviruses into their subtypes has potential clinical and epidemiological implications.

Objective: In this study, we developed a one-step, single-tube genogroup-specific reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) assay for the detection of group B Coxsackie genomes targeting 5' UTR region. Read More

Bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral myositis.

Clin Microbiol Rev 2008 Jul;21(3):473-94

Infectious Diseases Division, Naval Medical Center, San Diego, California 92134-1005, USA.

Infectious myositis may be caused by a broad range of bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral agents. Infectious myositis is overall uncommon given the relative resistance of the musculature to infection. For example, inciting events, including trauma, surgery, or the presence of foreign bodies or devitalized tissue, are often present in cases of bacterial myositis. Read More

Myalgias and arthralgias associated with paclitaxel.

Oncology (Williston Park) 2003 Feb;17(2):271-7; discussion 281-2, 286-8

Department of Pharmacy, University of Washington, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Seattle, Washington, USA.

Paclitaxel-induced myalgias and arthralgias occur in a significant fraction of patients receiving therapy with this taxane, potentially impairing physical function and quality of life. Paclitaxel-induced myalgias and arthralgias are related to individual doses; associations with the cumulative dose and infusion duration are less clear. Identification of risk factors for myalgias and arthralgias could distinguish a group of patients at greater risk, leading to minimization of myalgias and arthralgias through the use of preventive therapies.

Thomas Huckle Weller MD: Nobel Laureate and research pioneer in poliomyelitis, varicella-zoster virus, cytomegalovirus, rubella, and other infectious diseases.

Authors:
B Lee Ligon

Semin Pediatr Infect Dis 2002 Jan;13(1):55-63

Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX 77023, USA.

In 1954, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to Drs John Enders, Thomas Weller, and Frederick Robbins for their watershed discovery that growth of poliomyelitis virus occurred in cultures of cells of extraneural origin, first reported in 1949. Their demonstration in 1949 that the Lansing type II strain of poliomyelitis could be grown in cultures of human embryonic tissue set into motion a race to develop a vaccine for the disease that had crippled countless thousands of individuals. The discovery and subsequent recognition were only the beginning of a prolific career for Thomas Huckle Weller, who made numerous contributions to the field of virology, including isolating the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) from cases of chickenpox and zoster, providing suggestive evidence that the same virus is responsible for both diseases; isolating the human cytomegalovirus (CMV) for the first time in tissue culture and suggesting the descriptive name now used for it; establishing Coxsackie viruses as the cause of epidemic pleurodynia: and first isolating rubella virus, the cause of German measles.
