On Reunion Island, in response to the threat of emergence of the pandemic influenza A(H1N1)2009 virus, we implemented enhanced influenza surveillance from May 2009 onwards in order to detect the introduction of pandemic H1N1 influenza and to monitor its spread and impact on public health. The first 2009 pandemic influenza A(H1N1) virus was identified in(More)
We report a case of a patient returning from Cameroon who developed Plasmodium ovale malaria, despite atovaquone/proguanil (AP, Malarone) prophylaxis, which is widely used for the prevention of chloroquine-resistant malaria. AP is indeed active only on schizont blood forms of P. ovale but not against liver-stage hypnozoites and does not realize effective(More)
Guidelines help to prevent the transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in healthcare settings, but may also result in the unnecessary isolation of many patients. We performed a prospective study to assess the prevalence and identify clinical predictors of culture-proven tuberculosis among inpatients isolated for suspected pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) at(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to provide a systematic review of Epstein-Barr virus-associated smooth muscle tumors (EBV-SMT) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected adults, focusing on clinical and histopathologic features and outcome. METHODS A literature search was performed using Medline, Embase and the Cochrane Library. RESULTS We(More)
Parasitic infections responsible for diarrhea have a worldwide distribution, overlapping with AIDS in most countries. Indeed, highly active antiretroviral therapy has markedly reduced the incidence of most parasitic opportunistic infections, but parasite-related diarrhea remains frequent and probably underestimated in developing countries. In this review,(More)
BACKGROUND Isosporiasis, a rare cause of diarrhoea among HIV-infected patients in the pre-highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) era, seems to be re-emerging. METHODS A retrospective study was carried out for the period 1995-2003 in two hospitals in Paris to describe the prevalence, clinical characteristics and therapeutic outcome of isosporiasis in(More)
First infections with the 2009 pandemic H1N1 influenza virus were identified on Reunion Island in July 2009. By the end of July, sustained community transmission of the virus was established. Pandemic H1N1 influenza activity peaked during week 35 (24 to 30 August), five weeks after the beginning of the epidemic and has been declining since week 36. We(More)
27 cases of Actinobacillus ureae infections including 14 cases of meningitis have been reported. We describe 1 case of Actinobacillus ureae meningitis in a 75-y-old patient. Risk factors, clinical outcome and treatment of Actinobacillus ureae infections are discussed. Actinobacillus ureae may behave as an opportunistic pathogen causing severe infections in(More)
