The authors reviewed 70 cases of Streptococcus pneumoniae meningitis occurring over a 5-years period (1985-1989). Clinical features, outcome and laboratory findings in elderly patients (> 60 years of age, 21 patients) were compared with those in younger patients (< 59 years of age, 49 patients). Mortality rate was 57% in elderly group vs. 20% in younger.(More)
An incidence study on nosocomial infections in critically ill infectious disease patients was carried out in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a university hospital for infectious diseases over a 7-year period (1 January 1990 to 31 December 1996). A total of 660 patients who stayed in the ICU for over 48 h were prospectively observed. The patients were(More)
We studied the entry of ciprofloxacin into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in 37 patients with various types of meningitis (bacterial meningitis 10 patients, viral 12 patients, tuberculous 7 patients). Eight patients were in the control group with normal CSF finding. Mean ciprofloxacin concentrations in the CSF 50-60 minutes after 200 mg of ciprofloxacin was(More)
INTRODUCTION Treatment of immune thrombocytopenia is sometimes difficult and needs personal setting. According to evidence-based guidelines, corticosteroids are suggested for first-line treatment. In case of corticosteroid ineffectiveness, second-line therapeutic options (splenectomy, immunosuppressive drugs and, recently, thrombopoietin-mimetics) may(More)
In this prospective study the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score was evaluated in 107 critically ill infectious disease (ID) patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) during a 1-year period. Patients were separated into two groups: those affected by central nervous system (CNS) infections and those affected by infections other than of the CNS. There(More)
Results of 6-year body-site monitoring in an intensive care unit (ICU) are presented and antimicrobial resistance of gram-negative isolates analyzed. The study included 622 patients. Six hundred thirty-five bacterial isolates-causes of nosocomial sepsis, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections (UTIs)-were tested during the study. Gram-negative bacteria were(More)
PURPOSE The azoospermia-factor region of the Y-chromosome is essential for spermatogenesis in humans. In the literature, a wide range is given for the frequency of microdeletions in this region. The purpose of this study was to evaluate our own population of patients. METHODS During a two-year period at Vienna Medical School, all male patients (n = 383)(More)
UNLABELLED In Philadelphia chromosome-negative chronic myeloproliferative neoplasia, i.e. polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia and primary idiopathic myelofibrosis enhanced risk of thrombosis could be connected with Janus kinase 2 gene mutation occurring in various frequency in these diseases (JAK2V617F). Since 2002 the presence of JAK2 mutation in(More)
