To the Editor: We read with special interest the article by Hochberg et al. about angiostrongyliasis in Hawaii (1). Angiostrongylus cantonensis meningitis in the Americas was reported by Aguiar et al. in Cuba in 1981 (2), and we have studied this zoonosis during the ensuing 25 years. We agree with the authors about the difficulty in obtaining a specific(More)
INTRODUCTION 25 years ago was first reported in Cuba and in the western hemisphere an emergent disease: eosinophilic meningoencephalitis due to Angiostrongylus cantonensis larvae. AIM To collect in a summary form the accumulated experience and the findings of the study of this parasitosis during the period in the Western hemisphere. DEVELOPMENT AND(More)
INTRODUCTION During the third quarter of 2000, an outbreak of echovirus 16 meningoencephalitis was firstly occurred in Cuba and produced vomiting, headache, fever and exanthem that differentiate it from other enterovirus epidemies. OBJECTIVE To describe the intrathecal immunoglobulin synthesis pattern of the epidemie from the reibergram. PATIENTS AND(More)
INTRODUCTION Epidemics of meningoencephalitis due to echovirus 9 were commonly occurred when a children population become susceptible for the first time in front the virus. OBJECTIVE To present the intrathecal synthesis pattern of immunoglobulins of the epidemic that affected Cuba in 1999 and to probe the usefulness of reibergram and antibody index in the(More)
Angiostrongylus cantonensis meningitis was first reported in Cuba in 1981, and it was recently reported in South America. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the intrathecal immunoglobulin synthesis patterns from Cuba's and Ecuador's patients with angiostrongyliasis; 8 Ecuadorian patients from two different outbreaks and 28 Cuban patients were studied.(More)
INTRODUCTION Reiber's quotient diagram or reibergram has a growing apply for characterize the intratecal synthesis of proteins. Firstly reibergrama was used for the major classes of immunoglobulins but later it was used to evaluate other proteins based on the theory about molecular flux/cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow rate. METHOD C3c is a degradation(More)
