We describe a 46-year-old man in whom retinitis was diagnosed as his initial HIV and AIDS defining illness. A diagnosis of CMV infection was made based on the clinical appearance of the fundus and confirmed by DNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on his vitreous biopsy. His CD4+ T lymphocyte count at the time was 580 x 10(6)/l (16%) with a CD4:CD8 ration of(More)
BACKGROUND Many chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) patients recall an upper respiratory tract infection as the inciting event of their chronic illness. Viral infections have been shown to cause obstruction of the osteomeatal complex, which is likely to be a critical step in the development of CRS. There is clear overlap between the pathogenesis of CRS and asthma.(More)
This study investigates the use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in comparison with viral culture and serology for monitoring of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in 21 consecutive renal allograft recipients treated with a quadruple immunosuppression protocol. In addition, an attempt is made to explore the significance of quantitation of CMV signals(More)
