Pernicious anemia, a condition with chronic gastritis and achlorhydria, is strongly associated with gastric carcinoma.

Unlike mucocutaneous infections, disseminated herpes simplex virus infections are rare and often fatal owing to acute liver failure (ALF). Typically, the course of the disease is rapid and the lack of specific symptoms may result in delay in diagnosis. This study reports a case of genital herpes caused by herpes simplex-type 2 that resulted in ALF. The(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of TT virus (TTV) in a population of Danish hemodialysis patients and evaluate possible relations between TTV infection and elevated levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and hypo-response to treatment with erythropoietin (EPO). MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients on maintenance hemodialysis at a single center were invited to(More)
BACKGROUND Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is frequently detected in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). The impact of CMV infection on the outcome of UC exacerbation remains unclear. The benefit of combining antiviral with anti-inflammatory treatment has not been evaluated yet. The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of CMV-positive hospitalized patients(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Patients with liver cirrhosis and ascites have a poor prognosis with increased risk of infection related death, as advanced stages of cirrhosis are associated with immunodeficiency. We aimed to investigate immunologically active molecules in ascitic fluid and blood and their potential association to survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS In an(More)
