Expanding the horizons of histoplasmosis: disseminated histoplasmosis in a renal transplant patient after a trip to Bangladesh [Case Report]

U. Rappo, J.R. Beitler, J.R. Faulhaber, B. Firoz, J.S. Henning, K.M. Thomas, M. Maslow, D.S. Goldfarb, H.W. Horowitz. Expanding the horizons of histoplasmosis: disseminated histoplasmosis in a renal transplant patient after a trip to Bangladesh. Transpl Infect Dis 2009. All rights reserved Abstract: Histoplasmosis is recognized to occur in the Ohio and Mississippi River Valleys of the United States, but less widely appreciated is its worldwide distribution. We report a case of disseminated histoplasmosis with disease involving skin, lungs, and epiglottis in a renal transplant patient 6 months after a trip to Bangladesh, to highlight the potential risk of acquisition of this infection in the Indian subcontinent

Avian influenza

Zeitlin, Gary A; Maslow, Melanie J
The current epidemic of H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza in Southeast Asia raises serious concerns that genetic reassortment will result in the next influenza pandemic. There have been 164 confirmed cases of human infection with avian influenza since 1996. In 2004 alone, there were 45 cases of human H5N1 in Vietnam and Thailand, with a mortality rate over 70%. In addition to the potential public health hazard, the current zoonotic epidemic has caused severe economic losses. Efforts must be concentrated on early detection of bird outbreaks with aggressive culling, quarantines, and disinfection. To prepare for and prevent increased human cases, it is essential to improve detection methods and stockpile effective antivirals. Novel therapeutic modalities, including short, interfering RNAs and new vaccine strategies that use plasmid-based genetic systems offer promise, should a pandemic occur

Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome in the United States

Fabbri M; Maslow MJ
Since the first outbreak of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) in 1993, understanding of the vast distribution and potential impact of hantaviruses has grown. At least 277 cases of HPS have been documented in the United States. The full clinical spectrum has yet to be elucidated, and one outbreak suggested the possibility of person-to-person transmission. New research has identified the b-3 integrins as cellular receptors for hantaviruses and has determined the pivotal role of the immune system in pathogenesis. Rapid diagnosis has been facilitated by a new immunoblot assay to detect Sin Nombre virus infection. Treatment remains primarily supportive; however, a placebo- controlled trial of ribavirin is ongoing. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation may be a potential therapy in severe cases; inhaled nitric oxide needs further study. Vaccines developed against hantaviruses associated with hemorrhagic fever and renal syndrome might be effective against HPS-associated strains

Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Infections of the Lung

Kourbeti IS; Maslow MJ
There is an increasing appreciation for the role of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) as pathogens causing pulmonary disease, disseminated disease, or both in immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals. Species previously considered nonpathogenic have been shown to cause pulmonary infection. The majority of immunocompetent patients with NTM pulmonary infection have underlying lung disease. New diagnostic techniques such as gene probes, gas-liquid and high-pressure chromatography, and polymerase chain reaction offer significant advantages in the rapid identification of NTM species. Some of these techniques allow identification of mycobacteria directly from clinical specimens. The fluoroquinolones, rifabutin, and newer macrolides offer advances in the treatment of infections that are caused by NTM and are resistant to the traditional antimycobacterial drugs
