although different from other Burkholderia spp. in its pathogenicity and epidemiology, is not easily discriminated from B. thailand-ensis or B. cepacia complex by using phenotypic tests (10). In summary, infection with B. pseudomallei should be considered in patients with pneumonia after travel to the Baja Peninsula in Mexico, and especially after an… (More)
with doxycycline (100 mg 2×/d) for 10 days; they clinically recovered, and laboratory abnormalities returned to reference ranges at discharge 12 days after admission. The remaining 22 persons did not report any malaise and were examined 1 month after tick bite. They appeared healthy at that time, and PCR and ELISA gave negative results, arguing against… (More)
Sequencing of isolates from patients in Bahia, Brazil, where most Zika virus cases in Brazil have been reported, resulted in 11 whole and partial Zika virus genomes. Phylogenetic analyses revealed a well-supported Bahia-specific Zika virus lineage, which indicates sustained Zika virus circulation in Salvador, Bahia's capital city, since mid-2014.
PURPOSE To report the first case of Chikungunya encephalitis acquired in the perinatal period during the current outbreak in Brazil. METHODS Case report. RESULTS A male neonate with 3500 g developed macular erythematous rash, hypoactivity and fever progressing to generalized seizures. His mother had experienced a disseminated rash and fever before… (More)
There is little information about the congenital chikungunya virus (CHIKV) transmission. We describe two cases of well-documented congenital CHIKV infection in Salvador-Brazil, where CHIKV has been identified since 2014. The outbreak in the city led to the clinical CHIKV diagnoses of both pregnant women 2 days before delivery. Urine and blood samples from… (More)
Equine infectious anemia is an important infectious disease that affects equids worldwide. Control of the disease is currently based on detection of anti-p26 EIAV by Agar Gel Immunodiffusion (AGID). In this work, 62 animals were examined by AGID and nested-PCR using primers for the gag gene. Fifty-three samples (85.5%) were positive by nested-PCR, whereas… (More)
We report the presence of Chikungunya (CHIKV) RNA in the blood, urine and semen during the acute phase of the disease in an adult with a dual infection with Dengue virus type 3. The patient, a 25 yr-old man from Salvador, Brazil, reported a 6-day duration of high fever, arthralgia, myalgia, headache and photophobia.Blood and semen specimens were positive… (More)
Zika virus (ZIKV) infection has been associated with severe complications both in the developing and adult nervous system. To investigate the deleterious effects of ZIKV infection, we used human neural progenitor cells (NPC), derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). We found that NPC are highly susceptible to ZIKV and the infection results in… (More)
