The goal of the present study was to identify and characterize, at the electron microscopic level, the synapses formed by entorhinal cortical (EC) axons in the hippocampal CA1 stratum lacunosum-moleculare of the adult rat. Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin was ionotophoresed at various loci throughout the mediolateral and dorsoventral extent of the EC to(More)
Sexual transmission of hepatitis C (HCV) between HIV positive men who have sex with men (MSM) is increasingly being reported. There is limited and conflicting data as to whether HIV negative MSM are at increased risk of infection. Local directorate guidelines recommended HCV testing only in MSM having a sexual transmitted infection (STI) screen who(More)
Immune reconstitution disease (IRD) has been widely reported following the commencement of antiretrovirals. We report a case series from a cohort of HIV-1-infected patients of whom four developed acne vulgaris and one developed acne rosacea after the initiation of antiretroviral therapy. Acne vulgaris, as part of IRD, has been reported only once in the(More)
BACKGROUND The annual number of new human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections in the United Kingdom among men who have sex with men (MSM) has risen, and remains high among heterosexuals. Increasing HIV transmission among MSM is consistent with evidence of ongoing sexual risk behavior in this group, and targeted prevention strategies are needed for those(More)
We report the case of a patient who presented to a clinic for evaluation of inguinal lymphadenopathy. Histology of the lymph nodes revealed micoabscess formation suggesting infection with Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) or Bartonella henselae--the causative agent in cat scratch disease (CSD). The patient recalled no preceding animal exposure. Clinical and(More)
Reactive arthritis (ReA) is an autoimmune seronegative spondyloarthropathy that occurs in response to a urogenital or enteric infection. Several studies have reported a link between ReA and HIV infection. We report a case of an HIV-1-infected patient diagnosed with a disabling ReA who failed to respond to conventional therapy but whose symptoms resolved(More)
