We report a case of M. longobardum induced chronic osteomyelitis. A 71-yr-old man presented with inflammation in the left elbow and he underwent a surgery under the suspicion of tuberculous osteomyelitis. The pathologic(More)

BACKGROUND Rapid detection of carbapenemase-producing gram-negative bacilli (GNB) is required for optimal treatment of infected patients. We developed and assessed a new disk carbapenemase test (DCT). METHODS Paper disks containing 0.3 mg of imipenem and bromothymol blue indicator were developed, and the performance of the DCT were evaluated by using 742(More)
Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a genetically heterogeneous disorder associated with sequence variations in more than 10 genes; in some cases, it is caused by large deletions or duplications among the main, known LQTS-associated genes.
