OBJECTIVE The authors investigated the prevalence of tardive dyskinesia among elderly psychiatric patients who had never received neuroleptic medication before their first hospitalization. METHOD The study was performed in the geriatric psychiatry unit of a university-affiliated hospital in Canada and involved all first-admission patients admitted from(More)
We compare the microbiology of otopathogens causing recurrent acute otitis media (AOM) or AOM treatment failure in 600 children during 2000 to 2008 before and after the introduction of 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV-7). Streptococcus pneumoniae predominated before PCV-7 introduction and during 2007 to 2008, whereas Haemophilus influenzae(More)
Recent isolation of the non-K1 Escherichia coli neonatal meningitis strain S286, belonging to phylogroup C, which is closely related to major group B1, and producing an extended-spectrum beta-lactamase, encouraged us to seek the genetic determinants responsible for its virulence. We show that S286 belongs to the sequence O type ST23O78 and harbors 4 large(More)
The goal of the study reported here was to compare the results of Western blot with other serological methods for testing newborns suspected of having congenital toxoplasmosis. Western blot, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, immunoglobulin (Ig)M immunosorbent agglutination assay, and indirect immunofluorescence assay were performed on the sera of 126(More)
Hormographiella aspergillata is a rare causative agent of invasive filamentous breakthrough infection, mostly arising after echinocandin exposure. We report a neutropenic patient who developed a severe sino-orbito-cerebral H. aspergillata infection while receiving empirical caspofungin, successfully controlled by an aggressive strategy associating surgical(More)
The hallmark of the Capgras Syndrome is delusional misidentification of persons, objects or animals. It can occur in organic syndromes and in functional disorders. Hence there are adherents of organic as well as dynamic factors in the genesis of this disorder. The authors report the occurrence of the Capgras Syndrome in a brother and sister and elaborate on(More)
Carbamazepine has been used in the treatment of temporal lobe epilepsy since 1963. It has also been found effective in the treatment of psychiatric disorders accompanying epilepsy. Patients with nonspecific EEG abnormalities without overt epilepsy but with behavioral problems, including gross psychopathology and violent behavior, improve on carbamazepine.(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of newborns and infants with congenital toxoplasmosis is standard practice. Some observational studies have examined safety in newborns, but most of these failed to provide sufficient details for a provisional assessment of causality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and biological adverse effects of the(More)
We report here a case of possible donor-derived Candida stellimalicola infection after pancreas transplantation. Candida stellimalicola, an environmental non-filamentous yeast, was isolated from both the peritoneal fluid of the graft donor and the preservation fluid of the transplanted pancreas. Interestingly, this strain exhibited high minimum inhibitory(More)
