The presence of Salmonella and its relationship with indicators of faecal pollution was investigated in aquatic habitats. The highest frequency was obtained in rivers (58.7% of samples) followed by freshwater reservoirs (14.8%) and sea water (5.9%). The sporadic presence of Salmonella (< 30%) on beaches with low concentrations of faecal streptococci (mean(More)
The MICs of amphotericin B, miconazole, ketoconazole, flucytosine, itraconazole and fluconazole for 19 isolates of Fusarium oxysporum, 16 Fusarium solani, seven Fusarium verticilliodes, four Fusarium proliferatum, four Fusarium dimerum, three Fusarium equiseti, and one each of the following species: Fusarium graminearum, Fusarium chlamydosporum, Fusarium(More)
The MICs and minimum fungicidal concentrations (MFCs) of amphotericin B, miconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole, fluconazole, and flucytosine for 52 isolates of Paecilomyces species were evaluated by the broth microdilution method, largely based on the recommendations of the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (document M27-A). The fungal(More)
A case is reported of a 48-year-old man previously diagnosed as having mitral valvular disease, who was admitted for evaluation of chronic cor pulmonale. Seven years before admission, an intraoperative liver biopsy had shown multiple noncaseating granulomas. The further course was characterized by progressive chronic intrahepatic cholestasis and portal(More)
The incidence of serotypes of Salmonella in three types of environmental water (sea, river and fresh reservoirs) from north-east Spain was investigated. The study was performed at specific sampling locations during the summer for a period of five years (1992-1996). A total of 823 strains were isolated and 55 different serotypes were identified, 42 were(More)
Three different methods were used to determine the in vitro activities of amphotericin B, ketoconazole, itraconazole, and flucytosine against 30 isolates of different genera of filamentous fungi. MICs were determined visually, with or without agitation, and spectrophotometrically by using a broth microdilution method. For amphotericin B, there was one end(More)
In vitro antifungal susceptibility testing for filamentous fungi remains unstandardized and is unreliable for determining adequate therapy. A study was performed to evaluate the effect of inoculum size (10(2), 10(3), 10(4), and 10(5) conidia/ml), incubation time (48 and 72 h), and temperature (25, 30, and 35 degrees C) on MICs of amphotericin B for Fusarium(More)
INTRODUCTION Sleeve gastrectomy as an isolated procedure is a new option in bariatric surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate its short and medium term (2 years) results in a multicenter setting. MATERIALS This is a retrospective study including 446 patients undergoing surgery in 14 teaching, private, and public hospitals. RESULTS The immediate(More)
The authors report a new case of myoid tumour of the stomach, a chance discovery in an asymptomatic patient. The diagnosis of a heterogeneous tumour of gastric origin was made possible by echography and tomodensitometry. The myoid nature of the tumour was confirmed histologically. With the recognition of this new case the literature on the subject was(More)
