We report a case of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) triggered by influenza A (H1N1) in a 17-year-old boy with a mutation in the gene (CD46) encoding the transmembrane complement regulator membrane cofactor protein. The patient recovered completely following treatment with oseltamivir, plasma exchange, and hemodialysis. We describe the case and(More)
A male patient from Guinea-Bissau was admitted to Egas Moniz Hospital, Lisbon, complaining of fever and exhibiting a productive cough with mucopurulent discharge and weight loss. He had been using empirical medication with dexamethasone to treat his generalized facial swelling. At admission, he was cachectic and presented with soft facial edema,(More)
We present a case of a previously asymptomatic 34-year-old man that presented to the emergency department with two weeks of fever, arthralgia of the wrists and knees and sore throat. He was diagnosed with cytomegalovirus (CMV) mononucleosis. The patient remained symptomatic in the 5 following months. After an extensive workup to exclude other clinical(More)
Purpose of the study Since the use of more tolerable and less toxic combined antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, most drug-naïve HIV patients achieve viral suppression and immunologic recovery, combined with less AIDS related events. Nevertheless, drug switches are still frequent both as a mean of adherence and toxicity management and as a response to virologic(More)
Cytotoxic lymphomas comprise a spectrum of peripheral T-cell lymphomas that can have a initial or late cutaneous presentation. We describe a 46-year-old man from Cape Verde, with a dermatosis involving his face and trunk, consisting of monomorphic papules with a smooth surface and both motor and sensory polyneuropathy.The hypothesis of leprosy was supported(More)
Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) systems which act as backbone networks are very promising means of reducing overall costs of 60 GHz WPANs, as well leading to networks with limited intercellular interference. The main objective of this paper is to compare the performance of two systems that generate Optical Single Side Band (OSSB) OFDM signals at the mm-wave band(More)
