Over a 12-year period, from 1987 to 1998, the spectrum of aetiological agents isolated from 11208 patients (6265 females and 4943 males) suspected of having dermatomycosis was analysed in the mycological laboratory of the Department of Dermatology, Charles University, Prague. The most frequently examined locations were toenails (34.9%), feet (15.6%),(More)
An 83-year-old man presented with an approximately 1-year history of an extensive inflammatory purulent crusted lesion in the bald area of the scalp diagnosed as tinea caused by Trichophyton rubrum. The scalp biopsy specimen showed suppurative folliculitis with perifollicular abscesses in upper dermis, and periodic acid-Schiff-positive fungal elements(More)
From January 2011 to December 2013, a total of 262 samples, from 188 patients suspected of having syphilis were tested for the presence of treponemal DNA by PCR amplification of five chromosomal loci, including the polA (TP0105), tmpC (TP0319), TP0136, TP0548, and 23S rRNA genes. Altogether, 146 samples from 103 patients were PCR positive for treponemal(More)
A set of 415 clinical samples isolated from 294 patients suspected of having syphilis collected in the Czech Republic between 2004 and 2010 was tested for the presence of treponemal DNA. Standard serological tests showed that 197 patients were syphilis-seropositive and 97 patients were syphilis-seronegative. In each sample, PCR tests for polA (TP0105), tmpC(More)
Molecular typing of syphilis-causing strains provides important epidemiologic data. We tested whether identified molecular subtypes were identical in PCR-positive parallel samples taken from the same patient at a same time. We also tested whether subtype prevalence differs in skin and blood samples. Eighteen syphilis positive patients (showing both positive(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate clinical, epidemiological and demographic data of patients with syphilis hospitalized at the Department of Dermatovenereology of the General Teaching Hospital in 2009 and to identify the groups at high risk of sexually transmitted diseases. The results were compared with the previous surveys carried out between 1999 and(More)
This article presents a retrospective case-note review of patients diagnosed and hospitalized with acquired syphilis between January 1999 and December 2005 performed at the two Departments of Dermatovenereology in Prague. The syphilis epidemic in the Czech Republic between 1994 and 2001 now seems to be declining. The high rates of immigration from Eastern(More)
Treponema pallidum strains are closely related at the genome level but cause distinct diseases. Subspecies pallidum (TPA) is the causative agent of syphilis, subspecies pertenue (TPE) causes yaws while subspecies endemicum (TEN) causes bejel (endemic syphilis). Compared to the majority of treponemal genomic regions, several chromosomal loci were found to be(More)
The effects of perfluothane on the course of posttraumatic period are evaluated in patients with craniocerebral injuries. Forty patients were divided into 2 groups treated and not with perfluothane. Hemodynamics, hemostasis, gaseous exchange and lung ventilation functions, and neurological status were evaluated over the course of treatment. The data(More)
OBJECTIVE Comparison of two methods of so-called rapid assessment of Chlamydia trachomatis in the urogenital system, i.e. the hybridization method GEN-Probe PACE 2 and the amplification LCR (ligase chain reaction) method. In 1995-1996 the authors made a screening examination to detect Chlamydiae in the urogenital tract by means of the hybridization method(More)
