BACKGROUND The association between Kaposi's sarcoma, Human Herpes Virus 8 infection and multiple myeloma is still controversial especially in hemodialysed patient. AIM report a new case of this association. OBSERVATION We report the case of a 83 year old man in whom the diagnosis of multiple myeloma of IgA/kappa had been made in December 2003 with end(More)
The molecular mechanisms of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) remain poorly understood. Several different polymorphic genes have been investigated in order to demonstrate their possible association with this disease. It is evident that mainly alternative and lectin pathways complement activation and play an important role in renal injury of IgAN. This study was(More)
BACKGROUND The IgA nephropathy (IgA-N) is considered the most common form of primary glomerulonephritis and its pathogenic mechanisms are very complex. The study of several genes which encode for immunoregulator molecules in inflammatory and immunological responses during the disease, allowed to describe some number of polymorphisms would be involved in the(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis viral C (HVC) is relatively frequent among kidney transplants. It is responsible for a morbid-mortality that compromises the results of transplantation in the medium and long term. AIM To evaluate and to compare the prevalence of HVC, 172 kidney transplant adult patients were investigated in two Maghrebian centers at Casablanca (G1):(More)
Malignancies and opportunistic infections are frequently observed after solid-organ transplantation. Their occurrence strongly affects recipient survival. We report the case of a 29-year-old Tunisian kidney-recipient who was diagnosed simultaneously with post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) and visceral leishmaniasis (VL). Withdrawal of(More)
BACKGROUND Acute renal failure may occur in varied circumstances. It is potentially reversible spontaneously or after specific treatment. It is rare after hunger strike and fewer cases were reported in the literature. The physiopathological mechanisms are varied and remain incompletely known. AIM We report the case of a prisoner having presented an acute(More)
BACKGROUND Type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), also known as lymphoplasmacytic sclerosing pancreatitis (LPSP), is a rare cause of chronic pancreatitis, characterized by a fibro-inflammatory process. However, patients with AIP may have a good response to corticosteroid therapy. We describe a Tunisian patient with AIP that was confirmed to be an(More)
Purpose To explore the association between the polymorphism (S/F) p.R102G in the complement component 3 (C3) gene and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a Tunisian population. Methods The molecular study was performed by polymerase chain reaction using sequence-specific primers (PCR-SSP) in 207 control subjects free of any eye disease (fundus normal)(More)
