Hemorrhage is an important complication in dengue infection, but early predictors of clinically significant bleeding are undefined. This study aimed to determine clinical factors on admission associated with Type I bleeding, defined as gastrointestinal bleed, hematuria and menorrhagia, among adult patients with dengue infection. We carried out a(More)
Plasmodium falciparum is a major cause of severe malaria in Southeast Asia, however, there is limited information regarding clinical factors associated with the severity of falciparum malaria from this region. We performed a retrospective case-control study to compare clinical factors and outcomes between patients with severe and non-severe malaria, and to(More)
BACKGROUND Dengue is the most common mosquito-borne viral disease in humans. Recently, there has been an epidemic shift of dengue from mainly affecting children to affecting more adults with increased severity. However, clinical factors associated with severe dengue in adults have varied widely between studies. We aimed to identify the clinical factors(More)
A retrospective study was conducted by reviewing medical records of 323 adult patients hospitalized with dengue infection at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases, Bangkok, Thailand between 2006 and 2010 in order to determine factors associated with severe clinical manifestations of dengue. Of 323 patients, 95 (29.4%) had dengue fever (DF) and 228 (70.6%) had(More)
A retrospective study was conducted by reviewing 459 medical records of adult treatment naive HIV patients who received a fixed dose combination of GPO-VIR-S (stavudine, lamivudine and nevirapine) or GPO-VIR-Z (zidovudine, lamivudine and nevirapine) at Ramathibodi Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand during 2002-2009 following Thai National Treatment Guideline for(More)
BACKGROUND Snakebite-related acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common community-acquired AKI in tropical countries leading to death and disability. The aims of this study were to (1) determine the occurrence of snakebite-related AKI, (2) assess factors at presentation that are associated with snakebite-related AKI, and (3) determine the outcomes of patients(More)
Severe malaria has a poor prognosis with a morbidity rate of 80% in tropical areas. The early parasite detection is one of the effective means to prevent severe malaria of which specific treatment strategies are limited. Many clinical characteristics and laboratory testings have been used for the early diagnosis and prediction of severe disease. However, a(More)
We determined the seroprevalence of latent cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection among young and elderly adults to test for a change in seroprevalence with increasing age. Thirty-two young and 32 elderly adults were tested for anti-CMV IgG, T-cell subgroup analysis, mental status and daily life activity. There was no significant difference in the seroprevalence(More)
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis has been reported to be associated with various systemic illnesses and infections, including severe malaria. We report here a 43 year-old Thai male presenting with fever and seizures. He was diagnosed as and treated for severe falciparum malaria. After gaining consciousness he developed focal neurological signs and evidence(More)
BACKGROUND Dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever are caused by dengue virus. Dengue infection remains a burning problem of many countries. To diagnose acute dengue in the early phase we improve the low cost, rapid SYBR green real time assay and compared the sensitivity and specificity with real time Taqman(®) assay and conventional nested PCR assay.
