OBJECTIVE Laryngeal cryptococcosis is rare, with few reported cases in the literature. We present current investigation and treatment recommendations for this disease. STUDY DESIGN A structured literature review; additional cases and expert opinion are presented. RESULTS Localized laryngeal cryptococcal infection most commonly presents with persisting(More)
Since the advent of combination antiretroviral therapy to successfully treat HIV infection, drug-drug interactions (DDIs) have become a significant problem as many antiretrovirals (ARVs) are metabolized in the liver. Antituberculous therapy traditionally includes rifamycins, particularly rifampicin. Rifabutin (RBT) has shown similar efficacy as rifampicin(More)
Pharmacokinetic (PK) data describing a prolonged time course of antiretrovirals in plasma and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are important for understanding and managing late or missed doses and to assess the appropriateness of compounds for preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP). This study aimed to evaluate the PK of coformulated tenofovir disoproxil(More)
BACKGROUND Primary BK virus (BKV) infection is probably acquired by the respiratory route in childhood, and latent virus persists principally in the urinary tract. BKV reactivation is implicated in late onset haemorrhagic cystitis (HC) post Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT). There is emerging evidence that BKV can cause life-threatening pneumonitis(More)
BACKGROUND Ongoing inflammation in controlled HIV infection contributes to non-AIDS comorbidities. High bilirubin appears to exhibit an anti-inflammatory effect in vivo. We therefore examined whether increased bilirubin in persons with HIV was associated with differences in markers of inflammation and cardiovascular, bone, renal disease, and neurocognitive(More)
