Aerococcus urinae is a rare bacteria usually associated with urinary tract infection. It is unusually associated with endocarditis. To date only 18 cases have been reported. Among these cases, the majority had aortic valve involvement. Three had mitral and aortic valve involvement, and two had mitral and tricuspid valve involvement. We present the first(More)
Typhoid fever and salmonellosis, which are caused by Salmonella typhi and typhimurium, respectively, are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality in both developed and developing countries. We model typhoid fever using mice infected with Salmonella typhimurium, which results in a systemic disease, whereby the outcome of infection is variable in(More)
We report the case of a 47 year-old female with Streptococcus agalactiae (Group B beta-hemolytic streptococcus) meningitis complicated by hemorrhagic stroke. The patient presented to the emergency department with altered mental status, agitation, confusion, respiratory distress and fever of one-day duration. Labs showed left shift leukocytosis. CSF(More)
HIV/AIDS patients often present with orogenital ulcers. In the immunocompromised patient diagnosis of these ulcers pose a challenge, as there is a myriad of etiologies. We present a case of an HIV/AIDS patient with recurrent orogenital aphthosis that was confirmed to have concomitant diagnosis of Behcet's disease. Proper awareness of the causes of these(More)
The Gram-negative bacteria, Salmonella, cause a broad spectrum of clinical diseases in humans, ranging from asymptomatic carriage to life-threatening sepsis. We have designed an experimental model to study the contribution of genetic factors to the persistence of Salmonella Enteritidis during the late phase of infection in 129S6/SvEvTac and C57BL/6J mice.(More)
