Cryptococcal meningitis with secondary cutaneous involvement in an immunocompetent host

2013 Journal of Infection in Developing Countries  
Cryptococcosis is a potentially fatal fungal disease caused by variants of Cryptococcus neoformans species. The respiratory tract is the usual portal of entry, with a peculiar predilection to invade the central nervous system. The skin can be secondarily involved in disseminated infection or be exceptionally involved as primary cutaneous infection by inoculation. The disease is mostly seen in immunodeficiency states. The diagnosis is frequently unsuspected in immunocompetent patients. We report

The patient, a 20-year-old female, had fever, cough, headache and intractable vomiting for the past two months and was being managed as a case of tuberculous meningitis. Two weeks after starting antituberculous treatment she developed umbilicated papules on the head and neck region. Necessary laboratory workup identified C. neoformans in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and skin specimens. The titers of cryptococcal antigen were measured in CSF and serum for diagnostic and prognostic purposes. Anti-fungal treatment resulted in regression of the cutaneous lesions and resolution of systemic complaints. The case highlights the need for high degree of suspicion, especially in healthy young adults, in the diagnosis of cryptococcosis. The cutaneous eruptions can be the first manifestation or a diagnostic clue of enormous significance.

The decision process for selecting the best-suited follow-up treatment for suspected breast cancer cases are strongly dependent upon the correct diagnosis and assessment of the breast cancer risk. This study will develop an expert system with soft computing methods by using Fuzzy logic and Bayesian network. This system has five input variables and one output variable (risk status). The output variable is a value from 1 to 4; representing low risk status, intermediate risk status ,high risk

Since the discovery of cisplatin 35 years ago, it has enjoyed the status of a therapeutic agent of choice for treatment of various cancers including cervical cancer. Cisplatin is a DNA damaging platinum drug. Several studies are under way to elucidate its role in inducing apoptosis and inhibiting the pathways involved in cancer. The present study was undertaken to find out the inhibitory effect of cisplatin on survival pathways focusing on Erk 1/2, JNK, P53, Bcl-2, BAX, cytochrome-c and

Results obtained showed that cisplatin was effective at a dose of 5-10μM in MTT assay conducted on the three cell lines namely, HeLa, Vero and BHK. The apoptotic activity was measured by using LDH assay, caspase-9 assay and western blot analysis of cytochrome-c. There was increase in cytochrome-c, caspase-9 and LDH showing thereby that it acts through the intrinsic pathway involving mitochondria. There was depletion of total Erk and JNK. This further demonstrates that the drug is involved in inhibiting the proliferative pathway. We are inclined to conclude that the drug is very effective at moderate doses for inducing apoptosis in cancer cells. Its collateral damages however, as reported by others, may restrict its use in treatment of cancer.
