10 Possible Causes for Disseminated Cytomegalovirus Infection, Gas Gangrene, Pneumococcal Pneumonia

  • Acute Myelocytic Leukemia

    The World Health Organization (WHO) classification of lympho-hematopoietic neoplasms is increasingly based on genetic criteria. Here, we focus on changes that, as compared to the 2001 edition, were introduced into the 2008 WHO classification of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and related precursor neoplasms. The[…][]

  • Acute Myelomonocytic Leukemia

    Abstract Acute myeloid leukemia with inv(16)(p13q22), also known as M4Eo, is a distinct type of leukemia with characteristic clinicopathologic and cytogenetic features. Patients with M4Eo have monocytosis, high blast counts, and abnormal bone marrow eosinophils that contain large basophilic granules. The inv(16)(p13q22)[…][]

  • Blast Phase

    Abstract Chronic myeloid leukemia blast phase (CML-BP) cells commonly express the multidrug transporter, P-glycoprotein (Pgp). To determine whether Pgp inhibition improves treatment outcome in CML-BP, the Southwest Oncology Group performed a randomized, controlled trial testing the benefit of the Pgp modulator,[…][]

  • Phlegmonous Gastritis

    Cryptococcus and Histoplasma gastric infections are seen in conjunction with disseminated disease.[] Fulminant and fatal gas gangrene of the stomach in a healthy, live liver donor has been reported. 76 Patients typically present with acute upper abdominal pain, peritonitis[] […] with endocarditis following pneumonia, presumably pneumococcal, have been described. 8-10 The present report of a patient with endocarditis and diffuse phlegmonous gastritis[]

  • Septic Shock

    infection can also cause immunomodulation may be another factor contributing to sepsis-induced immunosuppression.[] gangrene, rare cases of spontaneous non-traumatic gas gangrene of abdominal viscera have also been recorded.3 Although potentially treatable with appropriate antibiotic cover[] He was found to have pneumococcal pneumonia complicated by septic shock.[]
