Abstract: Introduction: Leishmaniasis is classified into three clinical presentations: visceral, coetaneous and mucocutaneous. The latter is usually secondary to hematogenous spread after months or years of skin infection and can manifest as infiltrative lesions, ulcerated or vegetating in nose, pharynx, larynx and mouth, associated or not with ganglionics infarction. Laryngeal involvement is part of the differential diagnosis of lesions in this topography as nonspecific chronic laryngitis, granulomatosis and even tumors of the upper aerodigestive tract presenting atypical evolution. Sometimes it is difficult for the correct diagnosis of Leishmaniasis, with description of cases in the literature were conducted improperly. Objective: The objective of this study is to report a case of laryngeal Leishmaniasis addressing the difficulty of diagnosis, complications and treatment applied. Case Report: A patient with pain throat, dysphagia, odynophagia, dysphonia and weight loss, with no improvement with symptomatic medication. At telelaringoscopy, infiltrative lesion showed nodular supraglottis. He underwent a tracheotomy for airway obstruction and biopsy with immunohistochemical study for a definitive diagnosis of laryngeal Leishmaniasis. The patient was referred to the infectious diseases that initiated treatment with N-methylglucamine antimoniate with satisfactory response to therapy. Final Comments: Faced with a clinical suspicion of granulomatous diseases, it is essential to follow protocol laboratory evaluation associated with histological injury, to get a precise definition etiological without prolonging the time of diagnosis. Medical treatment for mucosal Leishmaniasis, recommended by the World Health Organization, was adequate in the case of laryngeal disorders, with complete resolution of symptoms.

Abstract: the aim of the present study was to outline the serological profile of hepatitis c among blood donors seen at the uberaba regional blood center, hemominas foundation, over the last 14 years. the frequency of hepatitis c was compared between first-time and repeat donors and the epidemiological characteristics of those with positive and indeterminate elisa anti-hcv (third and fourth generation) were analyzed based on the donor histories kept in the archives of the uberaba regional blood center. the serological ineligibility rate was 0.3%, with higher prevalence in the group of first-time donors. we did not find any significant differences regarding age, skin color, marital status or place of residence between eligible and ineligible donors; however, the frequency of positive serology was higher among men. the lower (0.3%) rate of ineligibility due to hepatitis c that was observed at the uberaba regional blood center, in relation to most brazilian blood centers, is probably due to the large number of repeat donors (83.3%). this reinforces the importance of achieving donor commitment for increasing transfusion safety.

Abstract: bacillary angiomatosis is one of the human bartoneloses. it is a systemic disease usually affecting the skin. its angioproliferative lesions are caused by b. henselae and by b. quintana. such lesions are more frequent in immunodeficient hosts. dermatologists must be well aware of this disease because it is potentially fatal, though it is treatable with antibiotic therapy. to establish a nosologic diagnosis, dermatologists should refer patients to a pathologist. in so doing, they will facilitate histologic differentiation especially from pyogenic granuloma and kaposi's sarcoma. this paper presents a literature review of the disease, and includes clinical, light and transmission electron microscope photographs.

Abstract: this study analyzes hospital case fatality associated with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasties (ptca) covered by the brazilian unified national health system (sus) and performed in hospitals in the state of rio de janeiro from 1999 to 2003. ptca data were obtained from the state health department's database on authorizations for hospital admissions. case fatality rates were estimated according to age, gender, diagnosis, and hospital. overall case fatality was 1.9% in 8,735 ptcas. the lowest rate was associated with angina (0.8%) and the highest rates with acute myocardial infarction (6%) and other diagnoses (7%). in the 50-69-year bracket, case fatality was higher in women. in the over-70 group, it was almost three times that of the youngest group (4% versus 1.4%). there was great variability among ptca case fatality rates in different hospitals (from 0 to 6.5%). ongoing monitoring of ptcas is thus necessary in clinical practice. in conclusion, ptca performance was still unsatisfactory under the unified national health system.

Abstract: OBJETIVO: Estimar a letalidade nos procedimentos de doen as isquêmicas do cora o (DIC) aguda e cr nica e por revasculariza o miocárdica (RVM) e angioplastia coronariana (AC) nos hospitais cadastrados no SIH/SUS (Sistema de Informa es Hospitalares/Sistema único de Saúde) no Estado do Rio de Janeiro (ERJ), de 1999 a 2003. MéTODOS: Os procedimentos considerados de RVM e de AC provieram do Datasus. As taxas foram padronizadas por sexo, idade e gravidade de doen a, tendo como padr o todos os procedimentos de alta complexidade cardiovascular, realizados no ERJ em 2000. Os grupos de DIC s o: angina, infarto agudo do miocárdio, outras DIC agudas e DIC cr nicas. RESULTADOS: As letalidades por angina, IAM, outras DIC agudas e DIC cr nicas foram de 2,8%, 16,2%, 2,9% e 3,9%, respectivamente, no ERJ. As taxas de letalidade, ajustadas por idade, sexo e grupo diagnóstico, nas RVM e AC foram elevadas, variando entre 1,9% e 12,8% nas RVM, e atingindo 3,2% nas AC, e de 2,3% e 11,1%, quando o tratamento clínico era realizado. CONCLUS O: As RVM e AC no tratamento das DIC no ERJ vêm aumentando progressivamente. A letalidade esteve acima do desejável, principalmente nas interna es por DIC cr nicas (5,4% e 1,7%, respectivamente). O tratamento clínico otimizado parece boa op o terapêutica, reservando-se as RVM e AC para os casos de pior prognóstico. A letalidade no IAM com tratamento clínico foi semelhante à existente quando n o se utilizam trombolíticos (16,7%).

Abstract: fifty patients, age from 32 to 82 years, were submitted to extracorporeal circulation using a membrane oxygenator (d.m.g.) in which a venous arterial shunt was employed so that only one third to one half of the venous blood were gone through the oxygenator. the gas used in the oxygenator was pure oxygen. the patients were kept with temperature of 34 to 36°c, anestetized with phentanil and full curarization, to decrease to a minimum the o2 comsumption. the average arterial so2 was ± 90% and the venous saturation ± 70%. there were no significant variations in pco2 and ph. during perfusion the arterial and venous saturations were monitored with an oxymeter and also the volume of the shunt measured by an electromagnetic flowmeter (biopump). there were two deaths in the post operative period (two weeks and three weeks after surgery) not related to the perfusion method. we conclude that the use of a venous arterial shunt and pure oxygen in membrane oxygenators can substitute the gas mixture routinely used in these devices and has as advantage to reduce in theory the inflamatory responses produced by the artificial oxygenators.
