Rhino-Orbito-Cerebral Mucormycosis in a Diabetic Patient with Idiopathic CD4 + Lymphocytopenia  [PDF]
Nuno Rocha Pereira, Paulo Andrade, Laura Sá, Candida Abreu, Rita Figueiredo, Roberto Silva, António Sarmento
Advances in Infectious Diseases (AID) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/aid.2013.34037

A 54-year-old diabetic male, with idiopathic CD4 + lymphocytopenia, was presented with a two-month history of headache and periocular pain followed by vertigo, left hypoacusia and left peripheral facial palsy and hypoesthesia. More than a month after admission, a palate ulcer appeared and Infectious Diseases consultation was required. Mucormycosis was suspected and the diagnosis was confirmed by histologic examination. Despite early surgery and combination antifungal therapy, the patient did not survive. This case report illustrates the difficulty in diagnosing a rare condition with non-specific clinical manifestations and underlines the importance of a timely multidisciplinary approach in order to recognise this highly fatal disease earlier. It also describes a previously non-reported situation of mucormycosis in a patient with idiopathic CD4 + lymphocytopenia.

Chronic Meningococcemia  [PDF]
Rita Veiga Ferraz, Filipa Ceia, Raquel Duro, Ana Cláudia Carvalho, Paulo Andrade, Susana Silva, António Sarmento

Abstract: Neisseria meningitidis is a gram-negative diplococcus which causes invasive disease. The most frequent clinical manifestations caused by infection with this pathogen, are meningitis and fulminant septic shock. More benign forms with a subacute or chronic pattern are rare but still can evolve to meningitis and have a fatal outcome. This entity is difficult to recognize, as febrile erythema with otherwise good general condition may simulate other diseases, namely viral infections. The authors reported the cases of two healthy young adults who were misdiagnosed with a viral infection. What they really had was a meningococcemia without meningitis presenting with mild and unspecific symptoms, such as, intermittent fever and a discrete macular rash. We pretend to highlight this rare, unspecific and heterogeneous symptoms which can provoke negligence of a potentially life threatening condition.

Abstract: our study focuses on implicit teachers' theories about teaching and learning. one assumes the optics of the implicit theories: the direct one (the knowledge is a faithful copy of the perceived reality); the interpretive one (knowledge as personal building). 468 teachers (infant education, basic education and middle class teaching) answered to the questionnaire concerning dilemmas about pedagogic situations. the result of the study indicates that 50,9% of teachers have selected constructivist answers for the presented dilemmas, 35% interpretative answers and 13,5% direct answers. the attained data points out the need of new studies focusing on the representations of the group of teachers who have not selected constructivist answers (49,1%) and the relations among such representations and their teaching practices.
Septic Shock after Intravesical BCG Instillation—A Case Report  [PDF]
Cristóv?o Figueiredo, Diana Póvoas, Carlos Alves, Alcina Ferreira, Paulo Figueiredo, Teresa Carvalho, Angélica Ramos, Lurdes Santos, António Sarmento
Advances in Infectious Diseases (AID) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/aid.2013.34036

Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is a live attenuated form of Mycobacterium bovis, initially used in medicine as a vaccination agent only. The discovery of its antineoplastic effects in bladder cancer has led to the widespread recognition of BCG intravesical instillation as a therapeutic option. Although sepsis following BCG intravesical instillation is rare, it is nonetheless a dreadful and potentially fatal complication. Therapy usually relies on antituberculous therapy and steroids, alongside with intensive care unit admission. The authors report a case of a 67-year-old male patient who developed septic shock with multiple organ dysfunction after intravesical BCG instillation and review the currently available knowledge concerning the risk factors, diagnosis, management and prevention of BCG sepsis.

Abstract: the objective of this work was to verify the effect of ammoniation on the contents of crude protein (cp), nitrogen retention (nr), dry matter (dm) content, preservation, cell wall constituents and in vitro dry matter disappearance (ivdmd) of cracked corn with high moisture (25%). four levels of anhydrous ammonia (0, 1, 2 and 3%) and five aeration periods (0, 7, 14 21, and 28 days) were studied using a completely randomized design, in a split plot design. the contents of cracked corn cp increased (10.3, 14, 15.2 and 16.7%) with increasing anhydrous ammonia levels (0, 1, 2 and 3%) respectively. the cp nr decreased, 61.9, 39 and 31.2%, for the levels 1, 2 and 3 of anhydrous ammonia, respectively. the dm content decreased with increase of anhydrous ammonia levels (81.0, 77.7, 77.0 and 78,0%) and with the increase of aeration periods (74.2, 75.8, 78.9, 80.3 and 80.7%). the nr (52.2 to 38.9%) and cp (14.7 to 13.5%) decreased with increasing of aeration periods, respectively, at the period from 0 to 28 days. there was a fungi presence for levels of 0 and 1 % of anhydrous ammonia, associated with higher temperature. the acid detergent fiber content (5.6%) and cellulose (4.5%) maintained unaltered, such as for anhydrous ammonia levels, as for aeration periods. the contents of neutral detergent fiber (22.7, 22.8, 18.5 and 14.8%) and hemicellulose (17.0, 17.3, 12.7 and 9.2%) decreased in the levels of 0, 1, 2, and 3% of anhydrous ammonia, respectively. the ivdmd (88.5, 89.8, 90.3 and 90.8), of cracked corn improved with the increase of the anhydrous ammonia levels (0, 1, 2 and 3%).

Abstract: Speciation within the African Coffee Pathogen. Cet article analyse s'il est avantageux d'utiliser le compost au lieu de l'engrais minéral pour produire la laitue dans la zone urbaine et péri-urbaine de Yaoundé. Les résultats de terrain montrent l'obtention de rendements et profits plus élevés lorsqu'on utilise le compost. Les résultats de la fonction de production Cobb-Douglas prouvent que l'utilisation du compost est statistiquement significative pour expliquer la variation de rendement de la laitue et que le compost est l'intrant le plus productif. D'autres résultats montrent que le compost fournit la matière organique utile au sol et que les besoins d'irrigation en eau de la culture sont réduits grace à l'utilisation du compost. Par conséquent, malgré le fait que l'application du compost demande une main-d'oeuvre beaucoup plus élevée, son utilisation est généralement bénéfique pour les agriculteurs vivant aux alentours de Yaoundé. Les programmes de vulgarisation de cet intrant pour encourager son adoption devraient donc figurer parmi les points prioritaires dans la politique agricole du gouvernement camerounais.

Abstract: Microbiological, Biochemical and Genetic Potential of Freeze Dried Starter Cultures of Acetic Acid Bacteria Isolated from Tropical Products Found in Sub-Saharan Africa and Intended for Use in the Production of Vinegar. The International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) is a unique international effort that evaluates the relevance, quality and effectiveness of agricultural knowledge, science, and technology (AKST), the effectiveness of public and private sector policies as well as institutional arrangements in relation to AKST. The purpose of IAASTD is to assess the impact of AKST on hunger, poverty, nutrition, human health, and environmental and social sustainability, in order to formulate options for actions to use AKST more effectively to facilitate sustainable development. The IAASTD report concludes that business as usual is not an option, successfully meeting development and sustainability goals and responding to new priorities and changing circumstances would require a fundamental shift in agricultural knowledge, science, and technology.
