2,470 Possible Causes for Opportunistic Infection

  • Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

    We examine toxicities of idelalisib, including bacterial infections (possibly secondary to drug-induced neutropenia), opportunistic infections (possibly attributable to on-target[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mucormycosis is a rare opportunistic fungal infection caused by saprophytic zygomycetes. These fungal infections are caused by members of the mucorales.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients may also have opportunistic infections because their immune systems are weakened. Peripheral T-cell lymphoma.[web.archive.org]

  • Leukemia

    Only neutropenia is regarded as independent risk factor for severe opportunistic infection in T-LGL patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] infections.[bloodjournal.hematologylibrary.org] The most significant side effect was prolonged lymphopenia associated with reactivation of viruses such as CMV and herpes and other opportunistic infections.[doi.org]

  • Oral Candidiasis

    Oral candidiasis is a clinical fungal infection that is the most common opportunistic infection affecting the human oral cavity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract SummaryHighly active antiretroviral therapy has decreased the morbidity and mortality related to HIV infection, including oral opportunistic infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Oral candidiasis is the most common fungal opportunistic infection to affect the oral cavity among HIV patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

    Reports of opportunistic infections and Kaposi's sarcoma among Haitians residing in the United States have recently been received at CDC.[web.archive.org] Physicians who care for Haitian patients should be aware that opportunistic infections may occur in this population.[web.archive.org] Other States: Opportunistic infections or Kaposi's sarcoma were also reported for 3 other Haitians located in California, Georgia, and New Jersey.[web.archive.org]

  • Microsporidiosis

    Microsporidia are intracellular protozoa that are emerging as significant opportunistic infections in AIDS patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] against opportunistic infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Microsporidia have emerged as causes of opportunistic infections associated with diarrhea and wasting in AIDS patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    Bars represent the risk of serious (grade 3, viral, or opportunistic) infections for each year of ongoing remission.[dx.doi.org] The majority of these opportunistic infections were viral in origin and often localized.[doi.org] The risk of serious (grade 3) or opportunistic infection was 10% and 4% during the first and second years of remission, respectively.[dx.doi.org]

  • Hodgkin's Disease

    Adenocarcinoma is the most frequent pathological type of stomach cancer. Hodgkin's lymphoma is a lymphoproliferative disease arising from lymphoid tissue which is characterized by Reed-Sternberg cells. Synchronous occurrence of these two malignancies has not been reported in the English literature so far. Here we[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Common Variable Immunodeficiency

    R897X) were documented in a second patient post-mortem following a fatal opportunistic infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite clinical immunodeficiency, opportunistic infections are not a typical manifestation of CVID.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Undiagnosed patients are usually not killed by the disease, but by opportunistic infections.[house.wikia.com]

  • HIV Infection

    AIDS-related opportunistic infections and malignancies are no longer the primary issues; instead, traditional age- and lifestyle-related conditions are a growing concern.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebral vasculopathy and stroke are uncommon and may be due to primary HIV vasculopathy or opportunistic infections such as tuberculosis and cryptococcal meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As one of the first opportunistic infections that occur in HIV-infected individuals, TB may be one of the earliest clues of an HIV infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cytomegalovirus Retinitis

    Cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis is an opportunistic infection commonly seen in disorders that affect the immune system of the body such as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This report illustrates the need for close monitoring of relapsed and refractory myeloma patients for new presentations of opportunistic infections secondary to severe immunosuppression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the most common opportunistic infection that affects the retina in HIV-positive patients; it typically occurs in the setting of severe immune[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
