INTRODUCTION Listeria monoytogenes is the third most frequent cause of bacterial meningitis in adults. It commonly affects persons with defective cell-mediated immunity or advanced age, and only a few patiens with no underlying predisposition have been reported. CASE REPORT We presented an previously healthy, 18-year-old man with typical clinical features(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in our geographic area, and to determine if there is a correlation between HCV genotypes and the development of HCC. METHODS Thirty-six patients with HCV-related HCC and 35 controls with HCV-associated(More)
WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE Antimicrobial resistance is one of the greatest threats to human health. One of the most important factors leading to the emergence of resistant bacteria is overuse of antibiotics. The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between antimicrobial usage and bacterial resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P.(More)
Plasmid profile analysis (PP) is a method of determining a number and size of plasmids in bacterial isolates. When using plasmid profile analysis in determining epidemiological strain for evaluation of this method, it is necessary to compare epidemiological strains with non-epidemiological ones isolated in the same period of time. Plasmid profile(More)
Intestinal obstructions cause proliferation of fecal type flora proximally from the point of obstruction. Pathophysiological processes, caused by fecal flora proliferation, in patients with simple mechanical obstruction result in metabolic disturbances (fat and B12 absorption disturbance), change in the gases volume and composition within the bowel above(More)
Neonatal listeriosis is widely reported, but this is the first case reported in Serbia. A newborn developed respiratory distress syndrome 2 hours after delivery and was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit. Initial empirical therapy was inappropriate. Consequently, on the second day, the patient developed meningitis. Listeria monocytogenes was(More)
WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE Antibiotics are the most frequently used drugs in hospitalized patients, but studies have shown that the prescribed antibiotics may be inappropriate and may contribute to antibiotic resistance. We carried out a survey of antibiotic consumption and antibiotic resistance in our tertiary care university hospital, from 2005 to 2013.(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the seroprevalence of Helicobacter pylori and the distribution of anti-H.pylori IgA and IgG antibodies in asymptomatic children aged between 7 and 18 y. We studied the serum samples of 283 children using the commercial ELISA test for the detection of anti-H. pylori IgA and IgG antibodies. The overall prevalence of(More)
Acute anterior uveitis (AAU) is the most common form of intraocular inflammation, but its aetiology is still unclear. Fifty percent of AAU patients are HLA-B27-positive, and half of these also have spondyloarthropathies (SpA). Numerous serological studies have shown elevated levels of serum antibodies to various Gram-negative bacteria in HLA-B27-positive(More)
Burkholderia cepacia (B cepacia) is a rare opportunistic pathogen in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) peritonitis. We describe the first case of repeated B cepacia CAPD peritonitis, occurring in an outpatient environment, treated with antimicrobial medication without peritoneal catheter removal. B cepacia may lead to repeat infection,(More)
