The association of human leukocyte antigen-B*5701 with abacavir hypersensitivity varies depending on ethnic origin. We confirmed the high specificity of B*5701 in the ethnically mixed French population and used a rapid and inexpensive polymerase chain reaction strategy to evaluate the predictiveness of B*5701 screening. The incidence of hypersensitivity(More)
Gonococcal arthritis is typically acute and appears within 3 weeks after initial infection. Chronic gonococcal arthritis is now exceptionally rare, since the advent of the antibiotic era. Numerous host factors are involved in gonococcal dissemination, such as complement deficiency, HIV and gonococcus strain characteristics. Gonococcal arthritis shares the(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated ectatic cerebral vasculitis (HIV-AECV) is a rare form of vasculitis with diffuse fusiform aneurysms. Its pathophysiology remains poorly understood. Although extensively described in children, it is still incompletely studied in adults. Our objective was to present five adult cases with emphasis on imaging(More)
We report a symptomatic case of HIV replication in CSF (Cerebro Spinal Fluid) despite low plasmatic viral load. The patient, known HIV positive since 3 years, under HAART (Highly Active Antiretroviral therapy), presented an acute meningoencephalitis which was improved by optimization of treatment for a better CNS (Central Nervous System) penetration(More)
29-69 % of pneumonias are microbiologically documented because it can be considered as an invasive procedure with variable test sensitivity. However, it drastically impacts therapeutic strategy in particular the use of antibiotics. Serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP) is a routine and non-invasive test commonly used to identify serum protein disorders. As(More)
