Proteolytic activity is regarded as one of the most important virulence factors of Candida albicans. Several authors recently demonstrated that some karyotypes and genotypes harbouring a group I self-splicing intron (CaLSU) located in the gene encoding the large rRNA subunit showed a high level of proteinase production. The aim of this study was to(More)
BACKGROUND The development of bone marrow fibrosis is a severe complication in hematological diseases. The progress of bone marrow myelofibrosis is evaluated by a trephine examination and may be characterized by the biochemical markers of collagen turnover determination. OBJECTIVES Investigation of serum prolidase activity and biochemical markers of(More)
A 53-year-old female patient with ovarian dermatoid cyst and lung tuberculosis had been treated with rifampicin. During repeated rifampicin treatment she developed an acute haemolytic syndrome with haemorrhagic diathesis. Laboratory findings showed that it was caused by disseminated intravascular coagulation. Death ensued despite intensive administration of(More)
Summary The susceptibility to six antifungals: amphotericin B (AMF), 5-fluorocytosine (5-F), miconazole (MIK), ketoconazole (KET), fluconazole (FLU) and itraconazole (ITR) was tested among 206 Candida spp. isolated from paediatric and adult patients with haematological malignancies. To determinate the susceptibility the commercial microdilution method(More)
Among 140 patients with acute leukemia (AL) diagnosed according to FAB criteria, pericarditis was diagnosed clinically in 5 of them. They were 2 women and 3 men with different types of AL (L2-in one, M2-in one, M3-in one and M4-in two persons). It occurred in one patient at the onset of the disease and was associated with hyperuricemia, in another one--in(More)
A leukaemic reaction is an increase of leukocytes count in peripheral blood between 20-50 G/l with significant percentage of immature white blood cells: metamyeloblasts, myelocytes and even myeloblasts in blood smear. The leukaemic reactions during cancers and many infections diseases, especially in the pregnancy, by their clinical symptoms and laboratory(More)
We present a case of 51-year old female patient with gastrointestinal perforation and septic shock leading to leukemoid reaction with WBC 155 x 109/l. Leukemoid reaction in neoplasms and infections can mimic chronic myelogenous leukaemia and is an important diagnostic problem.
Four group systems of serum proteins (Hp, Gc, Gm, Km) and five group systems of erythrocyte enzymes (AP, PGM1, GPT, AK, EsD) were determined in 63 patients with malignant lymphoma. Statistical analysis of the distribution of the above mentioned systems in patients and Polish population samples did not reveal any significant differences, which points to the(More)
The authors emphasize fungal lesions to the lymphatic nodes confirmed by the presence of Aspergillus flavus in blood and throat smear cultures (on Sabouraud's medium) and presence of A. flavus in cytological examination of biopsy from the lymphatic node, increased number of eosinophils in peripheral blood, and infiltration of eosinophils in bone marrow and(More)
