The efficacy of fluconazole was evaluated in 35 travelers with parasitologically proven imported Old World cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL). Leishmania major (mainly MON-25) was identified in 15 patients and strongly suspected given the transmission area in 12 of these patients. Daily oral fluconazole (200 mg/day for adults and 2.5 mg/kg/day for children) was(More)
BACKGROUND Antibiotics have been shown to improve hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) patients but complete remission is rare using these treatments. OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy and safety of a combination of oral rifampin, moxifloxacin and metronidazole in long-lasting refractory HS. METHODS We retrospectively studied 28 consecutive HS patients(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to exploit the extensive database on strains of Yersinia collected over more than 50 years in France in order to gain an overview of yersiniosis and potential sources of contamination in this country. METHODS The 19 670 strains of Yersinia of human, animal, environmental, and food origin isolated in France were grouped(More)
A patient with an ulcerated cutaneous leishmaniasis of the pinna had suppurative otochondritis after a first unsuccessful course of treatment with meglumine antimoniate. Although the Leishmania ulceration healed after a second course of meglumine antimoniate, and despite three oral dicloxacillin or pristinamycin courses, the otochondritis extended and an(More)
Background. Corynebacterium kroppenstedtii (Ck) was first described in 1998 from human sputum. Contrary to what is observed in ethnic groups such as Maori, Ck is rarely isolated from breast abscesses and granulomatous mastitis in Caucasian women. Case Presentation. We herein report a case of recurrent breast abscesses in a 46-year-old Caucasian woman.(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis A vaccination is recommended to people traveling to countries where the disease is endemic. Until recently, people originating from developing countries were considered to be "naturally" immunized. Because of improving socioeconomic conditions, hepatitis A incidence has decreased in most previously highly endemic countries during the(More)
We compared the performance of four rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for imported malaria, and particularly Plasmodium falciparum infection, using thick and thin blood smears as the gold standard. All the tests are designed to detect at least one protein specific to P. falciparum (Plasmodium histidine-rich protein 2 (PfHRP2) or Plasmodium LDH (PfLDH)) and one(More)
BACKGROUND Animal control measures in Latin America have decreased the incidence of urban human rabies transmitted by dogs and cats; currently most cases of human rabies are transmitted by bats. In 2004-2005, rabies outbreaks in populations living in rural Brazil prompted widespread vaccination of exposed and at-risk populations. More than 3,500 inhabitants(More)
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a skin disease characterized by recurrent nodules or abscesses and chronic suppurating lesions. In the absence of clear pathophysiology, HS is considered to be an inflammatory disease and has no satisfactory medical treatment. Recently, prolonged antimicrobial treatments were shown to improve or resolve HS lesions. We(More)
