Economic Evaluation of Using Daily Prednisolone versus Placebo at the Time of an Upper Respiratory Tract Infection for the Management of Children with Steroid-Sensitive Nephrotic Syndrome: A Model-Based Analysis.

Pharmacoecon Open 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of Paediatric Nephrology, Nottingham Children's Hospital, Nottingham, UK.

Background: Childhood steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome is a frequently relapsing disease with significant short- and long-term complications, leading to high healthcare costs and reduced quality of life for patients. The majority of relapses are triggered by upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) and evidence shows that daily low-dose prednisolone at the time of infection may reduce the risk of relapse.

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the cost effectiveness of a 6-day course of low-dose prednisolone at the start of a URTI when compared with placebo. Read More

[Herpes zoster-prevention, diagnosis, and treatment].

Hautarzt 2022 Jun 27;73(6):442-451. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Klinik für Dermatologie, Venerologie und Allergologie, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, corporate member of Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Charitéplatz 1, 10117, Berlin, Deutschland.

Ramsay Hunt syndrome: New impressions in the era of molecular genetics.

Parkinsonism Relat Disord 2022 04 12;97:101-104. Epub 2022 Apr 12.

Movement Disorders Centre, Toronto Western Hospital, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

More frequent use of next-generation sequencing led to a paradigm shift in assessing heredodegenerative diseases. This is particularly notable in progressive myoclonus epilepsy (PME) and progressive myoclonus ataxia (PMA) where a group of disorders linked to novel genetic mutations has now been added to these phenotypical realms. Despite the historical value of Ramsay Hunt's contribution defining the syndrome later known as PMA, recent genetic developments have made this eponym obsolete and a new definition and classification of PMA and PME seem necessary.

Department of Neurology, The Third People's Hospital of Hangzhou Zhejiang, China.

Recent clinical studies showed that central nervous system (CNS) infection caused by varicella zoster virus (VZV) reactivation was more than previously reported. The clinical manifestations were often diverse and complex, and the outcome often varied among different patients. A systematic study is needed to provide clinical characteristics of the CNS VZV infection to help clinicians with clinical diagnosis and management. Read More

Acute myelitis with multicranial neuritis caused by Varicella zoster virus: a case report.

BMC Neurol 2022 Feb 5;22(1):45. Epub 2022 Feb 5.

Department of Neurology, The Second Hospital of Hebei Medical University, Shijiazhuang, 050000, PR China.

Background: Varicella zoster virus (VZV) can remain lifelong in the latent state in ganglionic neurons and adrenal glands after the initial infection. However, it can be reactivated anytime and can trigger several severe neurological manifestations such as encephalitis, meningitis, Ramsay-Hunt syndrome, cerebellitis, myelitis, and stroke. In addition, due to the diversity of clinical manifestations, clinical diagnosis of VZV can be difficult, especially in the absence of varicella. Read More

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in a Patient with Ulcerative Colitis Treated with Infliximab.

Eur J Case Rep Intern Med 2021 9;8(12):003032. Epub 2021 Dec 9.

Department of Internal Medicine, Hospital Distrital da Figueira da Foz, EPE, Figueira da Foz, Portugal.

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a rare complication of herpes zoster that results from reactivation of varicella-zoster virus in the geniculate ganglion of the VII cranial nerve. Immunosuppression can lead to reactivation of latent varicella-zoster virus, resulting in herpes zoster. Here, we present a case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome in a patient with ulcerative colitis under treatment with infliximab. Read More

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, School of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul 05278, Korea.

Acute peripheral facial palsy (APFP), including Bell's palsy and Ramsay Hunt syndrome, is a disease that affects daily life through facial motor dysfunction, causing psychological problems. Various tests to evaluate prognosis have been studied; however, there are no validated predictive biomarkers to guide clinical decision making. Therefore, specific biomarkers that respond to treatment are required to understand prognostic outcomes. Read More

Ramsay-Hunt syndrome: Report of two cases with identification of the varicella zoster virus genome in cerebrospinal fluid

Biomedica 2021 12 15;41(4):625-630. Epub 2021 Dec 15.

Departamento de Medicina, Orientación Enfermedades Infecciosas, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina; División VIH-Sida, Hospital de Infecciosas "Francisco Javier Muñiz", Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Like other alpha-herpesviruses, the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) remains latent in the neural ganglia following the primary varicella infection. The reactivation of the VZV in the dorsal root ganglia results in herpes zoster. Herpes zoster eruption is characterized by localized cutaneous lesions and neuralgic pain mostly in older and immunocompromised persons, especially those living with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
