ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Introduction Multiple myeloma is a progressive and incurable hematological disease characterized by disordered and clonal multiplication of plasmacytes in the bone marrow. The main clinical manifestations are caused by the presence of neoplastic cells in bone tissue, as well as the excessive production of immunoglobulins and normal humoral immunity suppression. Daratumumab is an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody that has promising results in managing the multiple myeloma disease. Objective This study aimed to investigate the scientific evidence concerning the impact of the cytomegalovirus infections in the daratumumab treatment course in extensively pretreated multiple myeloma patients. Method To this end, an integrative literature review was performed in different databases, comprising a 5-year period. Results The studies analysis revealed that the cytomegalovirus infection reactivation can occur during the use of daratumumab in multiple myeloma patients previously treated, which led to treatment discontinuation, compromised the drug efficacy and favored the disease progression. Moreover, it was observed that even with prophylactic antiviral therapy there was an infection reactivation in some cases, as well as deaths, in more severe situations. Conclusion Thus, even considering that few reports on such a topic are available in the scientific literature, the present review showed that cytomegalovirus reactivation can impair daratumumab therapy, mainly in multiple myeloma patients heavily pretreated. In addition, this study could contribute as a tool for the clinical decision and management of adverse effects in medical practices, demonstrating the importance of patient monitoring for the possibility of cytomegalovirus reactivation in heavily pretreated myeloma patients.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN La púrpura de Henoch-Schönlein en el adulto es un reto diagnóstico. Su baja incidencia y su sintomatología poco específica configuran un cuadro clínico que puede pasar desapercibido en diversas ocasiones o solaparse bajo el peso de diferentes sospechas diagnósticas. La púrpura de Henoch-Schönlein no es un cuadro de espectro único. Se considera un grupo de enfermedades de manifestación heterogénea con un eje patogénico común dado por el hallazgo de inflamación de la pared en vasos de pequeño calibre mediada por complejos inmunes. Este es el caso de un paciente de 70 arios quien cursa con un cuadro compatible con púrpura de Henoch-Schönlein, de inicio tardío, caracterizada por su difícil manejo y constantes recaídas. a pesar del uso cuidadoso de las pautas terapéuticas establecidas por los consensos actuales. En este paciente se documentó, de forma concomitante, una infección por citomegalovirus que al recibir tratamiento permitió el control adecuado de síntomas. Adicionalmente, este paciente presentaba una linfocitopenia que parecía ser secundaria a la infección viral.


ABSTRACT Henoch-Schönlein purpura in the adult is a diagnostic challenge. Its low incidence and its unspecific symptomatology in this age group, establish a clinical chart that can be ignored on several occasions. Henoch-Schönlein purpura is considered a group of diseases of heterogeneous manifestation with a common pathogenic axis: the finding of inflammation of the wall of the small calibre vessels, mediated by immune complexes. The case is presented of a 70-year-old patient with a difficult to treat Henoch-Schönlein purpura, with constant relapses despite the use of the therapeutic guidelines established in the current guidelines. In this patient, a concomitant cytomegalovirus infection was documented that, after receiving treatment, allowed adequate control of symptoms. Additionally, this patient also had a lymphocytopenia that was secondary to cytomegalovirus.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La infección por citomegalovirus es muy frecuente en pacientes sometidos a trasplante de progenitores hematopoyéticos, debido a tratamientos mieloablativos de acondicionamiento, disparidad genética y al tratamiento inmunosupresor, y ocurre fundamentalmente después de la toma del implante. Objetivos: Actualizar el diagnóstico, manejo y seguimiento de la infección por citomegalovirus en pacientes trasplantados. Métodos: Se realizó revisión bibliográfica en los idiomas español e inglés, utilizando los motores de búsqueda de Pubmed, Google Académico y Scielo sobre el diagnóstico y manejo del citomegalovirus en pacientes receptores de trasplante hematopoyético. Análisis y síntesis de la información: Se recolectó y organizó la información obtenida siguiendo cronológicamente el surgimiento de técnicas para diagnóstico y la aparición de nuevos medicamentos en los últimos años. Se seleccionaron artículos recientes de expertos en el tema en revistas prestigiosas, donde se evidencia la importancia del diagnóstico adelantado y el inicio del tratamiento. Conclusiones: En la actualidad se cuenta con nuevas formas de diagnóstico y medicamentos novedosos para el citomegalovirus, pero la mortalidad puede llegar a ser alta, si el paciente no es tratado antes de que aparezcan los síntomas de la enfermedad e incluso a pesar del tratamiento. En ocasiones, no es posible erradicar el virus, lo que lleva a complicaciones importantes y a la muerte. La enfermedad citomegálica continúa siendo una complicación frecuente en estos pacientes a pesar de las medidas para evitar su reactivación(AU)


Introduction: Cytomegalovirus infection is very common in patients undergoing hematopoietic progenitor transplantation, due to myeloablative conditioning treatments, genetic disparity, and immunosuppressive treatment, and occurs mainly after the engrafment. Objective: A review and update of the diagnosis and management of cytomegalovirus is made in hematopoietic transplant recipients. Method: A bibliographic review was carried out in Spanish and English, using the search engines of Pubmed, Scholar Google and Scielo about the diagnosis and management of cytomegalovirus in hematopoietic transplant recipients. Development: The information obtained was collected and organized chronologically about the emergence of techniques for diagnosis and the appearance of new drugs in recent years. Recent articles by experts in prestigious journals were reviewed and the importance of early diagnosis and initiation of treatment is evidenced. Conclusions: There are currently new forms of diagnosis and novel medications, but mortality can be high, if the patient is not treated before the symptoms of the disease appear and even despite treatment, sometimes it is not possible to eradicate the virus, leading to major complications and death. Cytomegalic disease continues to be a frequent complication in these patients despite measures to prevent virus reactivation(AU)

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCCIÓN: Citomegalovirus (CMV) es agente causal de infección congénita en todo el mundo con gran impacto socioeconómico, dado que produce pérdida de audición en la niñez y retraso del neurodesarrollo. No existen aún tratamientos con eficacia comprobada para todos los grupos de pacientes, ni se ha licenciado una vacuna segura y eficaz; tampoco se ha logrado consenso respecto al screening universal. Los objetivos de este trabajo fueron estimar la prevalencia de infección congénita por CMV y seroprevalencia materna en Tucumán y comparar si existen diferencias en las variables estudiadas según un índice de carencias y tipo de institución (pública o privada). MÉTODOS: Se realizó un estudio observacional de corte transversal. Se reclutaron 201 binomios recién nacido (RN)/madre de 8 maternidades del subsector público y privado. Se obtuvieron muestras de suero de la madre y orina del RN y se completó una Ficha de Recolección de Datos. Se utilizó PCR en tiempo real para la detección de genoma viral en muestras de orina de los RN y se realizó detección de IgG anti-CMV en el suero de las madres. RESULTADOS: Se obtuvo una prevalencia estimada de infección congénita por CMV de 0,5% y una seroprevalencia materna de 96,9%. Se encontraron diferencias según índice de carencias y tipo de institución. DISCUSIÓN: La frecuencia de infección congénita fue baja, comparada con la seroprevalencia materna. Algunas de las variables estudiadas evidencian mayor vulnerabilidad en el sector público

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Ground-glass opacity is a very frequent and unspecified finding in chest computed tomography. Therefore, it admits a wide range of differential diagnoses in the acute context, from viral pneumonias such as influenza virus, coronavirus disease 2019 and cytomegalovirus and even non-infectious lesions, such as vaping, pulmonary infarction, alveolar hemorrhage and pulmonary edema. For this diagnostic differentiation, ground glass must be correlated with other findings in imaging tests, with laboratory tests and with the patients' clinical condition. In the context of a pandemic, it is extremely important to remember the other pathologies with similar findings to coronavirus disease 2019 in the imaging exams.


RESUMO A opacidade em vidro fosco é uma alteração muito frequente e pouco específica na tomografia computadorizada de tórax. Ela admite grande leque de diagnósticos diferenciais no contexto agudo, desde pneumonias virais, como as causadas pelo vírus influenza, pela doença do coronavírus 2019 e pelo citomegalovírus, até mesmo lesões de origem não infecciosa, como vaping , infarto pulmonar, hemorragia alveolar e edema pulmonar. Para essa diferenciação diagnóstica, deve-se correlacionar o vidro fosco com os demais achados nos exames de imagem, exames laboratoriais e quadro clínico do paciente. É de suma importância, no contexto de pandemia, recordar as demais patologias com os achados semelhantes aos da doença do coronavírus 2019 nos exames de imagem.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#The best approach to reduce congenital cytomegalovirus infection (cCMVi) is to practice behaviors that reduce cytomegalovirus (CMV) transmission during pregnancy. Expanding awareness and knowledge of CMV is expected to result in increased practice of preventative behaviors. To this end, it is necessary to understand current awareness and knowledge of CMV.@*METHODS@#This web-based cross-sectional survey assessed the awareness and knowledge of cCMVi among pregnant women and the general public in Japan. Participants aged 20-45 years (pregnant and non-pregnant women, and men) were identified from a consumer panel. Study outcomes (all participants) included awareness of cCMVi and other congenital conditions. Among those aware of cCMVi, outcomes included knowledge of CMV transmission routes, long-term outcomes of cCMVi, and behaviors to prevent CMV transmission during pregnancy. Outcomes limited to pregnant women included the practice of preventative behaviors and opinion on how easy it is to implement these behaviors. The data of the pregnant group (pregnant at the time of the survey) were compared with those of the general group (non-pregnant women and men).@*RESULTS@#There were 535 participants in the pregnant group and 571 in the general group. Awareness of cCMVi was generally low (pregnant, 16.1%; general, 10.2%). Pregnant participants were significantly more aware of most congenital conditions than those in the general group, including cCMVi (P = 0.004). Knowledge about CMV/cCMVi was limited; there were no significant differences between the two groups for 24 of the 26 knowledge questions. A small proportion (one third or less) of pregnant women practiced behaviors to prevent the transmission of CMV, though most (73.3-95.3%) pregnant women who were aware of cCMVi considered such behaviors easy to implement.@*CONCLUSIONS@#Awareness and knowledge of CMV/cCMVi is low among pregnant women in Japan; the level of knowledge is similar to that among the general public. This needs to be improved. Most pregnant women considered behaviors to prevent CMV transmission easy to perform, which indicates that effectively educating pregnant women regarding the long-term outcomes of cCMVi, CMV transmission routes, and preventative behaviors will contribute to a reduced incidence of cCMVi.@*TRIAL REGISTRATION@#UMIN Clinical Trials Registry, UMIN000041260 .

ABSTRACT

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV), two of the most prevalent human herpesviruses, cause a wide spectrum of diseases and symptoms and are associated with serious health problem. In this study, we developed an internal control reference recombinase-aided amplification (ICR-RAA) assay for the rapid detection of EBV and CMV within 30 min. The assay had a sensitivity of 5 and 1 copies/test for EBV and CMV, respectively, with no cross reaction with other pathogens. In comparison with those of the commercial quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), the sensitivity of the EBV and CMV ICR-RAAs using extracted DNA was 93.33% and 84.84%, respectively; the specificity was 98.75% and 100.00%, respectively; and the Kappa values were 0.930 and 0.892 (

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the clinical characteristics and risk factors of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) in patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA).@*METHODS@#Clinical data from 270 SAA patients with allo-HSCT were retrospectively analyzed, including 108 sib congruence patients and 162 substitute donors (68 unrelated donor congruence patients and 94 related haploid patients). Different pretreatment schemes were selected for different transplantation modes. The HLA-identical sibling and haploid grafts were all bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cells, and the grafts from unrelated donors were peripheral blood stem cells. After granulocyte implantation, blood CMV-DNA was regularly monitored. Flow cytometry was also used to determine the absolute number of CD3@*RESULTS@#CMV infection occurred in 229 of 270 patients with an incidence of 84.8%. Among them, 18 patients developed giant cell disease. Univariate analysis showed that alternative donors (unrelated total and haploid donors), mycophenolate mofetil and acute graft-versus-host disease were statistically significantly associated with CMV infection (P<0.05). Multivariate analysis showed that alternative donors were associated with CMV infection. The recovery of CD3@*CONCLUSION@#After allo-HSCT, substitute donors are more easily to develop CMV infection than full-sibling donors, and the reconstruction of immune function is delayed after transplantation.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Introducción: Para los pacientes receptores de trasplante hepático (TH) la hepatitis por citomegalovirus (CMV) constituye una entidad de difícil diagnóstico. Nuestro objetivo fue determinar la real incidencia de hepatitis por CMV aplicando técnicas diagnósticas más específicas. Material y Métodos: Estudio retrospectivo/ prospectivo, en un centro de trasplante hepático. Período de estudio: años 2009 al 2019. Se incluyeron los TH que presentaron elementos sugestivos y/o específicos de CMV en la histopatología de la punción biopsia hepática (PBH), a los que se les realizó inmunohistoquimica (IHQ) en la PBH. Población control n = 17. Resultados: 41 casos cumplieron los criterios de inclusión. La IHQ fue positiva en n = 6 (14,6%). En la población control, la IHQ fue negativa en el 100% de los casos. Esto traduce un valor predictor negativo de 100% para la histopatología en el diagnóstico de hepatitis por CMV, con un valor predictor positivo de 14,6%. En 85% de los pacientes con IHQ negativa, hubo diagnósticos alternativos. La terapia antiviral en la fase retrospectiva se indicó en 48% y en la prospectiva en 21%. Conclusiones: Combinar la histopatología con la IHQ optimiza el diagnóstico de hepatitis por CMV; lo que permite la racionalización del uso de antivirales de alto costo y la búsqueda de etiologías diferenciales.


Abstract Background: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) hepatitis constitutes a challenging diagnostic entity in liver transplant (LT) recipients. Aim: To determine the real incidence of CMV hepatitis using more specific diagnostic tools as those currently used before. Methods: Retrospective/prospective study conducted in a hepatic transplant unit from 2009 to 2019. LT recipients with CMV specific or suggestive elements in histopathology of hepatic biopsies were included. Immunohistochemistry (IHQ) was performed in tissue samples of the studied cohort as well as in a control one. Results: 41 patients met the inclusion criteria. IHQ was diagnostic in 6 (14.6%), and was negative in 100% of the control population. The negative predictive value of the histopathology for CMV hepatitis diagnosis was 100% and the positive predictive value was 14.6%. 85% of patients in whom the IHQ was negative had alternative diagnosis Antiviral therapy in the retrospective analysis was indicated in 48% of patients and in 21% of the prospectively analyzed cohort. Conclusions: Histopathology and IHQ combination improves the diagnostic accuracy of CMV hepatitis which translates into a rational us of expensive antiviral therapy and to search for differential diagnosis

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Background: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is an opportunistic infection (OI) in immunosuppressed patients. However, there are no clear cut-off values available for quantitative plasmatic CMV measures (viral load [VL]) to discriminate those with CMV illness from those infected suffering a transient viral reactivation. Aim: To estimate a CMV VL cut-off point that discriminates infected patients and those with CMV related diseases, and to clinically characterize AIDS patients with this OI. Patients and Methods: Retrospective analysis of AIDS patients admitted by any reason between years 2017 and 2019 and who had a positive plasma CMV VL at any titer. Cases were categorized with illness or infected using accepted criteria and the cut-off value was obtained by receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC) analysis. Results: Twelve patients were identified as having a CMV-associated illness and seven with CMV infection. A CMV VL of 3,800 copies/mL had a sensitivity of 91.6% and 100% specificity to discriminate both states. Of the 12 patients with CMV illness, all were in AIDS stage and only five were receiving HIV therapy. Predominant clinical presentations were gastrointestinal (50%), followed by liver involvement (25%) and CMV disease (25%). All patients were treated with ganciclovir or valganciclovir. Ten patients had a favorable response (83.3%), one patient only had a laboratory improvement (8.3%) and one died during treatment (8.3%). Drug toxicity was recorded in nine patients but in only three cases, a dose adjustment was necessary. Conclusions: The predominant clinical manifestation in our series was gastrointestinal. A CMV VL cutoff level of CMV VL of 3,800 copies / mL is useful to discriminate infected patients from those with CMV related disease.


Antecedentes: Citomegalovirus (CMV) es una infección oportunista (IO) en pacientes inmunosuprimidos. Sin embargo, se requieren puntos de corte de carga viral (CV) para discriminar a aquellos con enfermedad por CMV de aquellos infectados que sufren una reactivación viral transitoria. Objetivos: Estimar un punto de corte de la CV de CMV que discrimine a los enfermos de los infectados y, además, caracterizar clínicamente a los pacientes con sida que presentan esta IO. Pacientes y Métodos: Análisis retrospectivo de pacientes con sida hospitalizados por cualquier motivo entre los años 2017 y 2019, y que presentaron un CV de CMV plasmática positiva a cualquier título. Los casos se clasificaron como enfermos utilizando criterios aceptados y el valor de corte se obtuvo mediante análisis de una curva ROC. Resultados: Durante el período de estudio, 12 pacientes fueron identificados con enfermedad asociada al CMV y siete con infección. Una CV de 3.800 copias/ml logró una sensibilidad de 91,6% y una especificidad de 100% para discriminar ambos estados. De los 12 pacientes enfermos, todos estaban en etapa de sida y solo 5 recibían terapia contra el VIH. La presentación clínica predominante fue gastrointestinal (50%) seguida del compromiso hepático (25%) y de la enfermedad por CMV (25%). Todos los pacientes fueron tratados con ganciclovir o valganciclovir. Diez pacientes tuvieron una respuesta favorable (83,3%), uno solo tuvo mejoría de laboratorio (8,3%) y otro paciente falleció durante el tratamiento (8,3%). Nueve pacientes evolucionaron con toxicidad farmacológica, pero en solo 3 casos fue necesario ajustar las dosis. Conclusiones: La forma predominante de presentación de la enfermedad fue gastrointestinal. Un punto de corte de 3.800 copias/ml discrimina pacientes infectados de aquellos con la enfermedad.

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the rates of IgG and IgM antibodies against cytomegalovirus, rubella, and Toxoplasma gondii (all of which may cause congenital infections) in women of childbearing age who were admitted to Bolu Abant İzzet Baysal University Training and Research Hospital. METHODS Between January 2015 and December 2017, Toxoplasma gondii, rubella, and cytomegalovirus IgM and IgG antibody levels were studied using the ELISA method (Architect i2000SR, Abbott, Germany) in patients aged 15 to 45 who attended the obstetrics and gynecology outpatient clinics. Toxoplasma gondii and cytomegalovirus IgG avidity levels were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS A total of 13.470 tests were conducted in the laboratory. Seropositivity percentages of IgM antibodies were found to be 1.3%, 0.5%, and 1.6% for Toxoplasma (n = 3607), rubella (n = 3931), and cytomegalovirus (n = 3795), respectively. The seropositivity percentages of IgG antibodies were 22%, 94.2%, and 98.2% for Toxoplasma (n = 702), rubella (n = 693), and cytomegalovirus (n = 679), respectively. Primary infection (acute, recently acquired) was found in 7 (35%) patients with low Toxoplasma IgG avidity. One (3%) patient with low cytomegalovirus IgG avidity had a primary infection. CONCLUSION Toxoplasma gondii seronegativity was found to be high in the region. Therefore, screening women of childbearing age may be important for the prevention of congenital infections caused by Toxoplasma gondii.


RESUMO OBJETIVO O objetivo deste estudo foi determinar as taxas de anticorpos IgG e IgM contra citomegalovírus, rubéola e Toxoplasma gondii (todos os quais podem causar infecções congênitas) em mulheres em idade fértil que foram admitidas no Hospital de Pesquisa e Treinamento da Universidade Bolu Abant İzzet Baysal. MÉTODOS Entre janeiro de 2015 e dezembro de 2017, os níveis de anticorpos IgG e IgM para Toxoplasma gondii, rubéola e citomegalovírus foram estudados usando o método Elisa (Architect i2000SR, Abbott, Alemanha) em pacientes de 15 a 45 anos que compareceram a ambulatórios de obstetrícia e ginecologia. Os níveis de avidez de IgG para Toxoplasma gondii e citomegalovírus foram analisados retrospectivamente. RESULTADOS Um total de 13.470 testes foram realizados em laboratório. As porcentagens de soropositividade dos anticorpos IgM foram de 1,3%, 0,5% e 1,6% para Toxoplasma (n=3.607), rubéola (n=3.931) e citomegalovírus (n=3.795), respectivamente. As porcentagens de soropositividade dos anticorpos IgG foram 22%, 94,2% e 98,2% para Toxoplasma (n=702), rubéola (n=693) e citomegalovírus (n=679), respectivamente. Infecção primária (aguda, adquirida recentemente) foi encontrada em sete (35%) pacientes com baixa avidez para Toxoplasma IgG. Um (3%) paciente com baixa avidez para citomegalovírus IgG teve uma infecção primária. CONCLUSÃO A soronegatividade do Toxoplasma gondii foi alta na região. Portanto, testar mulheres em idade fértil pode ser importante para a prevenção de infecções congênitas causadas pelo Toxoplasma gondii.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective Cytomegalovirus infection and disease are significant causes of morbidity and mortality among patients with hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of cytomegalovirus infection and characterize the patients who developed the disease. Methods A retrospective cohort study was performed among adult patients, recipients of allogeneic HSTC between 2008 and 2015. Taking into account the institutional protocol of prophylaxis infections in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, patients received either preemptive therapy or prophylaxis with valganciclovir. Infection was defined as a positive pp65 antigenemia assay or PCR higher than 500 copies/mL. Disease was defined as viremia with evidence of end organ damage. Results Seventy patients were included, the median age was 36 years old (IQR 17-62). A total of 93% of the recipients had a positive serology. The Cytomegalovirus infection occurred in 59% of the patients. Eleven patients developed disease (16%), the most frequent manifestation being colitis, followed by pneumonitis and a single case of retinitis. There were no differences between the preemptive therapy or prophylaxis groups. The mean time of onset of the disease was day 94 post-transplant. Three patients developed disease with a viral load lower than 1000 copies/mL. Conclusion The incidence of cytomegalovirus infection after transplantation at our institution is high. It was found that the disease can occur with any level of viral load and is associated with high mortality.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Las infecciones por virus o la reactivación de virus en estado latente son frecuentes durante el estado de inmunosupresión que sigue al trasplante de progenitores hematopoyéticos, y constituyen una causa importante de complicaciones, como la cistitis hemorrágica, que se caracteriza por disuria, polaquiuria, dolor abdominal y hematuria. La aparición precoz se asocia a la administración de citostáticos como la ciclofosfamida, y el comienzo tardío a la primoinfección o reactivación de virus como citomegalovirus, los adenovirus o los poliomavirus como el BK y el JC. Objetivo: Describir las características clínicas, la evolución y el manejo de la cistitis hemorrágica postrasplante. Casos clínicos: Se presentan dos pacientes con leucemia mieloide aguda que desarrollaron cistitis hemorrágica asociada a infección viral por virus BK y citomegalovirus después del trasplante haploidéntico con ciclofosfamida postrasplante. La cistitis hemorrágica de causa viral después del trasplante hematopoyético en estos pacientes estuvo asociada a una severa inmunosupresión, por lo que constituyó una complicación potencialmente letal. Los dos pacientes presentaron cistitis hemorrágica grado IV y fallecieron a pesar del tratamiento. Conclusiones: El trasplante haploidéntico con la administración de ciclofosfamida postrasplante incrementa la posibilidad de donantes de progenitores hematopoyéticos para los pacientes sin un hermano HLA idéntico pero el mayor nivel de inmunosupresión podría aumentar la incidencia de cistitis hemorrágica de causa viral(AU)


Introduction: Viral infections or latent-virus reactivation are frequent during the immunosuppressed cincition that follows hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation, and an important cause of complications, such as hemorrhagic cystitis, characterized by dysuria, urinary frequency, abdominal pain, and hematuria. The early appearance is associated with the administration of cytostatic drugs such as cyclophosphamide, and the late onset is associated with primary infection or reactivation of viruses such as cytomegalovirus, adenoviruses, or polyomaviruses such as BK and JC. Objective: To describe the clinical characteristics, evolution and management of post-transplant hemorrhagic cystitis. Clinical cases: The cases are presented of two patients with acute myeloid leukemia who developed hemorrhagic cystitis associated with viral infection by BK virus and cytomegalovirus after haploidentical transplantation with post-transplant cyclophosphamide. Viral hemorrhagic cystitis after hematopoietic transplantation in these patients was associated with severe immunosuppression, making it a potentially lethal complication. Both patients presented grade IV hemorrhagic cystitis and died despite treatment. Conclusions: Haploidentical transplantation with the of post-transplant cyclophosphamide administration increases the possibility for donors of hematopoietic progenitor cells to patients without an identical HLA match, but the higher level of immunosuppression could increase the incidence of viral hemorrhagic cystitis(AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective This study aimed to clarify the association between oral human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) and periodontitis in Japanese adults. Methodology In total, 190 patients (75 men and 115 women; mean age, 70.2 years) who visited Hiroshima University Hospital between March 2018 and May 2020 were included. Oral rinse samples were taken to examine the presence of HCMV DNA using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). P. gingivalis was detected by semi-quantitative PCR analysis. Results HCMV DNA was present in nine of 190 patients (4.7%). There were significant associations between HCMV presence and the presence of ≥4-mm-deep periodontal pockets with bleeding on probing (BOP) (P<0.01) and ≥6-mm-deep periodontal pockets with BOP (P=0.01). However, no significant relationship was observed between HCMV presence and periodontal epithelial surface area scores. Logistic regression analysis revealed that the presence of ≥4-mm-deep periodontal pockets with BOP was significantly associated with HCMV (odds ratio, 14.4; P=0.01). Propensity score matching was performed between patients presenting ≥4-mm-deep periodontal pockets with BOP (i.e., active periodontitis) and patients without ≥4-mm-deep periodontal pockets with BOP; 62 matched pairs were generated. Patients who had ≥4-mm-deep periodontal pockets with BOP showed a higher rate of HCMV presence (9.7%) than those who lacked ≥4-mm-deep periodontal pockets with BOP (0.0%). There was a significant relationship between HCMV presence and ≥4-mm-deep periodontal pockets with BOP (P=0.03). A significant relationship was found between HCMV/P. gingivalis DNA presence and ≥4-mm-deep periodontal pockets with BOP (P=0.03). Conclusions Coinfection of oral HCMV and P. gingivalis was significantly associated with active periodontitis. Moreover, interactions between oral HCMV and P. gingivalis may be related to the severity of periodontal disease.

ABSTRACT

El Citomegalovirus es un microorganismo capaz de generar infecciones severas en pacientes inmunosuprimidos. Existe abundante información respecto a la infección en pacientes inmunosuprimidos por VIH o en relación a trasplante de órganos sólidos o hematopoyéticos. No ocurre lo mismo con los pacientes portadores de enfermedades autoinmunes. Si bien la clínica puede ser inespecífica y dificultar la sospecha diagnóstica, la clave está en determinar al paciente de riesgo para la infección y así realizar un diagnóstico precoz. Se presenta el caso de una mujer de 56 años, portadora de una polimiositis de difícil tratamiento, que en un contexto de terapia en base a corticoides e inmunosupresores (azatioprina y metotrexato), desarrolla cuadro febril asociado a fatiga, cuyo estudio concluyó una infección por Citomegalovirus, tratado exitosamente con Valganciclovir.


Cytomegalovirus is a microorganism associated with severe infections in immunosuppressed patients. There is abundant information regarding infection in HIV immunosuppressed patients or in relation to solid or hematopoietic organ transplantation. The same does not happen with patients with rheumatic diseases. Although the clinic can be nonspecific and hinder diagnostic suspicion, the key is to determine the patient at risk for the infection and thus make an early diagnosis. We present a case of a 56-year-old woman with a difficult-to-treat polymyositis, who, in a context of corticosteroid and immunosuppressive agents (azathioprine and methotrexate), develops a fever associated with fatigue, whose study con-cluded an infection due to Cytomegalovirus, successfully treated with Valganci-clovir.

ABSTRACT

Abstract INTRODUCTION: This study assessed the seroprevalence of cytomegalovirus, associated factors, and Epstein-Barr virus coinfection among adult residents of Manaus. METHODS: Using a cross-sectional study design, we collected blood samples from 136 individuals in a household survey in 2016. Prevalence ratios were calculated using Poisson regression. RESULTS: Cytomegalovirus and Epstein-Barr virus seroprevalences were 67.6% (95% CI: 9.7-75.6%) and 97.8% (95% CI: 95.3-100.0%), respectively. Coinfection was observed in 66.2% (95% CI: 58.1-74.2%) of participants. Bivariate analysis showed no statistical association. CONCLUSIONS: Seroprevalences were high among participants and approximately 7 out of 10 individuals had cytomegalovirus and Epstein-Barr virus coinfection.

ABSTRACT

Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are severe cutaneous adverse reactions. Although viral reactivation is associated with DRESS syndrome, its role in TEN remains unclear. An 80-year-old woman visited our hospital because of fever and skin eruption. DRESS syndrome was diagnosed and was thought to caused by the use of the drug allopurinol. She was treated by discontinuation of the drug and administration of systemic steroids. She recovered from DRESS syndrome and was discharged from the hospital with tapering doses of steroids prescribed. One week after discharge, she visited our hospital again as the skin rash recurred and oral pain as well as oral and ocular mucosal lesions developed. In addition to the skin rash, blisters and Nikolsky's sign that were different from the skin lesions present in the previous DRESS syndrome were observed. Unlike those in DRESS syndrome, the viral serological test results were positive for anti-cytomegalovirus (CMV) IgM and CMV polymerase chain reaction. Therefore, it was thought that TEN was due to reactivation of CMV and she was treated this with ganciclovir and intravenous immunoglobulin. Here, we report a case of TEN caused by viral reactivation after DRESS syndrome developed after use of allopurinol which recovered after steroid treatment.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To investigate the relationship between human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection and peripheral blood CD14 CD16 monocytes in the pathogenesis of coronary heart disease (CHD), and to elucidate the mechanism of pathogenesis in CHD by analyzing the correlation between infection, inflammation, and CHD, to provide a basis for the prevention, evaluation, and treatment of the disease.@*Methods@#In total, 192 patients with CHD were divided into three groups: latent CHD, angina pectoris, and myocardial infarction. HCMV-IgM and -IgG antibodies were assessed using ELISA; CD14 CD16 monocytes were counted using a five-type automated hematology analyzer; mononuclear cells were assessed using fluorescence-activated cell sorting; and an automatic biochemical analyzer was used to measure the levels of triglyceride, cholesterol, high- and low-density lipoprotein cholesterols, lipoprotein, hs-CRp and Hcy.@*Results@#The positive rates of HCMV-IgM and -IgG were significantly higher in the CHD groups than in the control group. HCMV infection affects lipid metabolism to promote immune and inflammatory responses.@*Conclusion@#HCMV infection has a specific correlation with the occurrence and development of CHD. The expression of CD14 CD16 mononuclear cells in the CHD group was increased accordingly and correlated with acute HCMV infection. Thus, HCMV antibody as well as peripheral blood CD14 CD16 mononuclear cells can be used to monitor the occurrence and development of CHD.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the clinical characteristics and prognostic risk factors of HLH children with central nervous system (CNS) involvement so as to provide more reference for further improving the prognosis of HLH children.@*METHODS@#The clinical data of 45 HLH children with CNS involvement treated in our hospital from January 2006 to October 2016 were collected and analyzed retrospectively. The clinical characteristics of HLH children with CNS involvement were recorded, moreover the possible factors influencing the prognosis of HLH children with CNS involvement were analyzed using univariate and multivariate analysis through the establishment of Cox risk ratio model.@*RESULTS@#Among 45 HLH children with CNS involvement, male was 19 cases and female was 26 cases. The median age of 4.0 years old (1.0-15.1). The detection showed that EBV found in 38 cases (84.44%), CMV infection in 1 case (2.22%), bacterial infection in 3 cases (6.67%), connection tissue disease in 1 case (2.22%) and indefinite etiology infection in 2 cases (4.44%). After lumbar puncture of 27 HLH children with CNS involvement, 10 cases (37.04%) showed cerebrospinal fluid abnormality. In addition, 22 cases showed the craniography abnormality. The follow-up results showed that the OS rate of 1 year was 46.67% (21/45), the OS rate of 3 years was 44.44% (20/45); the median survival time was 5.0 months. The OS analysis indicated that 1 years OS rate of diseased children with cerebrospinal fluid abnormality was significantly lower than that of diseased children with cerebrospinal fluid normality (10/45 vs 17/45) (P<0.05), and 1 years OS rate of diseased children who not received intrathecal injection was significantly lower that of diseased children who received intrathecal (10/45 vs 17/45) (P<0.05). The univariate analysis showed that the symptoms of nervous system, abnormal cerebrospinal fluid, absence of intrathecal injection and treatment schedule all were the risk factors affecting the prognosis of HLH children with CNS involvement (P<0.05). The multivariate analysis by Cox risk model showed that abnormal cerebrospinal fluid and absence of intrathecal injection were independent risk factors for of HLH children with CNS involvement (P<0.05).@*CONCLUSION@#The clinical prognosis of HLH children with CNS involvement is relatively poor, moreover some of HLH children with CNS involvement have neural sequelae. The cerebrospinal fluid abnormality and absence of intrathecal injection are independent risk factors leading to poor prognosis for HLH clildren with CNS involvement.
