From Latent Tuberculosis Infection to Tuberculosis. News in Diagnosticsb (QuantiFERON-Plus)

It is estimated that one third of the world’s population have latent tuberculosis infection and that this is a significant reservoir for future tuberculosis cases. Most cases occur within two years following initial infection. The identification of individuals with latent tuberculosis infection is difficult due to the lack of an ideal diagnostic assay and incomplete understanding of latent infection. Currently, there are three tests: the oldest tuberculin skin test, T-SPOT.TB and the

Ultrasonography of peritoneal tuberculosis

Introduction Peritoneal tuberculosis is a public health problem in endemic areas(1). It constitutes the most frequent abdominal site (50 to 58% of the abdominal locations) and is the third most frequent of the extrapulmonary locations(2–4). Clinical manifestations are nonspecific, causing frequent delays and diagnostic wanderings. Ultrasonography is the most common first-line examination of ascites, which is the most common presentation of peritoneal tuberculosis. This work aims to describe

Prevalence of Multi-Drug Resistant Mycobacterium Tuberculosis in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa – A High Tuberculosis Endemic Area of Pakistan

Introduction Tuberculosis (TB) is a pre-historic disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) (Daniel 2006). Although there are more than 150 species of Mycobacterium sp., MTB is still the most dominant and prevailing member of this genus all over the world, accounting for 10 million deaths in 2019 (WHO 2019). The World Health Organization (WHO) declared TB as a global emergency in 1993 (Grange and Zumla 2002). Despite significant medical and social interventions, TB consistently affects

QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus Test in Diagnostics of Latent Tuberculosis Infection in Children Aged 1–14 in a Country with a Low Tuberculosis Incidence

Introduction The latest WHO data indicate that about 1 million children become infected with tuberculosis (TB) every year. In 2018, 233,000 children died due to this potentially possible to avoid and cure infectious disease (WHO 2018a; 2018b; 2019). For most children the source of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection is an adult immediate family member living in the same household: the closer and longer contact with a TB patient, the higher risk of M. tuberculosis infection. In small children

A Current Microbiological Picture of Mycobacterium Isolates from Istanbul, Turkey

Introduction Tuberculosis (TB), as an infectious disease is caused by Mycobacterium species in humans (Miotto et al. 2018). The etiological agent of the disease is most often Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), and less commonly other species in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC). Mycobacterium species other than these species are classified as non-tuberculosis mycobacteria (NTMs) (Waters and Ratjen 2016). In recent years, the incidence of diseases caused by NTMs has increased due to

Interferon Gamma Release Assays in Patients with Respiratory Isolates of Non-Tuberculous Mycobacteria – a Preliminary Study

Introduction The introduction of IGRAs to clinical practice enabled to improve the diagnostic accuracy of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). The assessment of LTBI by IGRAs is based on response to specific antigens: early secreted antigenic target 6 kDa (ESAT-6) and culture filtrate protein 10 kDa (CFP-10), localized in a specific genomic area of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, called the region of difference (RD1) (Borkowska 2011; Demkow 2011). Subsequently, IGRAs have been extensively used to

Mycobacterium chimaera as an Underestimated Cause of NTM Lung Diseases in Patients Hospitalized in Pulmonary Wards

Introduction Non-tuberculosis mycobacteria (NTM), also called opportunistic or atypical mycobacteria, are widespread as part of environmental microbiota (Griffith et al. 2007). Most atypical mycobacteria are natural inhabitants of various ecological niches, common for humans and animals, including natural waters, drinking water supply systems, and soil. As a result of their widespread expansion, humans are exposed to constant contact with these opportunistic microorganisms. Non-tuberculosis

Caring and Collaborating A case study on a complex patient under multiple teams

. On January 18th, Mr X was given a potential diagnosis of Tuberculosis (TB), with confirmation of this diagnosis on January 19th. Mr X was also confirmed to have a miliary strain of TB, starting in his lungs, only to spread and cause TB Meningitis. Throughout the course of his admission, Mr X was transferred between various wards, including an Intensive Care Unit admission, before eventually transferring to our neurosciences ward for neurological observation postoperatively following a

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) Attenuating Apoptosis and Autophagy in RAW264.7 Cells in Response to Incubation with Mycolic Acid from Bovine Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex

Introduction Bovine tuberculosis is an airborne infectious disease caused by organisms of the MTB complex (Baker et al. 2019). MTB complex often colonizes immunocompromised hosts, then induces inflammation, and disrupts the host immune response. MTB can produce many substances to exert its virulence to mammalian cells. One of them is mycolic acid (MA). MA is a unique lipid component of the MTB cell wall and plays an essential role in the process of binding MTB to macrophages (Lehmann et al

The Effect of Long-Term Storage on Mycobacterium bovis

Introduction For many years, tuberculosis has remained relevant in veterinary and human medicine worldwide and in Ukraine. According to WHO, tuberculosis is one of the top ten causes of death in the world. In 2017, 10,000,000 people had a tuberculosis infection, and 1,600,000 died from the disease. In 2018, according to WHO, the overall incidence of tuberculosis in Ukraine was 36,000 (per 37,000,000 population). Complexities of overcoming tuberculosis and mycobacteriosis can be interrelated to

Granulomatous prostatitis after intravesical immunotherapy mimicking prostate cancer

granulomatous prostatitis in a 61-year-old patient which occurred after the first course of a well-tolerated Bacillus Calmette-Guérin therapy is presented. Due to abnormalities found in rectal examination and an abnormal transrectal ultrasound image of the prostate with extensive infiltration mimicking neoplastic hyperplasia a core biopsy of the prostate was performed. Histopathological examination revealed inflammatory infiltration sites of tuberculosis origin.

Mistakes in ultrasound diagnosis of superficial lymph nodes

appearance of lymph nodes in granulomatous diseases, such as tuberculosis or sarcoidosis, can be very similar to that of typical metastatic lymph nodes or lymphomas. Anechoic or hypoechoic areas in a lymph node can represent necrosis or metastatic hemorrhages, but also suppuration in inflamed lymph nodes. Lymph nodes in lymphomas, metastatic and reactive lymph nodes can adopt the classical characteristics of a simple cyst. The overall ultrasound picture along with all criteria for the assessment of a
