We evaluated the relevance of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) monitoring with quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction in 42 consecutive HCMV positive liver transplant patients, and we analyzed the factors that determined the treatment of the first episode of HCMV DNAemia. No patients received anti-HCMV prophylaxis. HCMV infection monitoring was(More)
BACKGROUND Townes-Brocks syndrome (TBS) is a rare autosomal dominant disease, resulting from mutation in the developmental gene SALL1. The phenotype encompasses malformations of limbs (triphalangeal thumbs and pre-axial polydactyly), intestine (anal stenosis) and ears (dysplastic ear with perception hearing loss). Renal involvement (hypo-dysplasia,(More)
BACKGROUND Salmonella enteritidis-associated acute renal failure has often been described and is usually a result of dehydration or of rhabdomyolysis. A few cases of acute renal failure with glomerular syndrome, caused by S. enteritidis infection, have been reported in the literature, but none have been proven by histological findings. METHODS Herein, we(More)
The predictive factors for cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in de novo liver transplant patients were determined at 3 months posttransplantation. We included all consecutive patients except those who died or who had lost their graft within 1 month posttransplant. We recorded both donor (D) and recipient (R) data. Immunosuppression utilized tacrolimus,(More)
OBJECTIVE Human cytomegalovirus can be reactivated after orthotopic liver transplantation in patients who are seropositive for cytomegalovirus. Whether those cytomegalovirus-seropositive patients require immediate posttransplant (anti)- cytomegalovirus prophylactic therapy or preemptive treatment as opposed to deferred treatment remains controversial. The(More)
Polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, skin changes (POEMS) syndrome is a systemic condition related to plasma cell dyscrasia. Increased vascular permeability is responsible for some of the hallmarks of this disorder that may include renal microangiopathy. Several lines of evidence suggest that vascular endothelial growth factor(More)
