  • Blepharitis

    The case is presented of a 3-year-old girl with an erythematous oedematous plaque associated with blepharitis, and chalazion in the right upper eyelid. She received empirical treatment with topical corticosteroids, as well as an antifungal and antibiotic, without observing any improvement. The culture of the eyelid[…][]

  • Syphilis

    Three genera of spirochetes cause human infection: Treponema, which causes syphilis, yaws, and pinta The particular spirochete responsible for syphilis is Treponema pallidum[] Endarteritis is caused by the binding of spirochetes to endothelial cells, mediated by host fibronectin molecules bound to the surface of the spirochetes.[] If the spirochete invades the CNS, syphilitic meningitis results.[]

  • Erythema Chronicum Migrans

    The isolated spirochete is immunologically related to the Ixodes dammini spirochete, Borrelia duttoni, and Treponema pallidum.[] Spirochetes were identified by light microscopy with Steiner silver stain.[] The findings are in agreement with spirochetal etiology in ECMA.[]

  • Lyme Disease

    […] prevalence and genospecies of spirochetes present in rodent- and lizard-associated ticks at a site where this spirochete frequently infects questing ticks.[] To determine whether the Lyme disease spirochete Borrelia lusitaniae is associated with lizards, we compared the prevalence and genospecies of spirochetes present in rodent[] In most infected ticks, spirochetal development was found to be limited to the midgut.[]

  • Lyme Carditis

    Fatal Lyme carditis caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi rarely is identified.[] Lyme disease is a tick-borne spirochetal infection that may involve heart.[] A structure compatible with a spirochetal organism was demonstrated in one biopsy specimen.[]

  • Lyme Meningoencephalitis

    Syphilis, the ultimate organ system spirochete, is a cousin to Lyme disease spirochetes, and they are transmitted differently.[] Barbour AG, Tessier SL, Todd WJ (1983) Lyme disease spirochetes and ixodid tick spirochetes share a common surface antigenic determinant defined by a monoclonal antibody.[] ICD-10-CM Codes › A00-B99 Certain infectious and parasitic diseases › A65-A69 Other spirochetal diseases › A69- Other spirochetal infections › Meningitis due to Lyme disease[]

  • Jarisch Herxheimer Reaction

    Experimental evidence indicates it is caused by nonendotoxin pyrogen and spirochetal lipoproteins.[] Abstract Full-Text Figures & Tables References (92) Cited By (3) Supplements Metrics Related Content Abstract Abstract Within 24 hours after antibiotic treatment of the spirochetal[] Within 24 hours after antibiotic treatment of the spirochetal infections syphilis, Lyme disease, leptospirosis, and relapsing fever (RF), patients experience shaking chills[]

  • Syphilitic Arthritis

    Definition (MSH) A contagious venereal disease caused by the spirochete TREPONEMA PALLIDUM.[] Introduction Classification Treponema pallidum spirochete Epidemiology demographics most common during years of peak sexual activity most new cases in men and women aged 20[] Skin biopsies demonstrated syphilis spirochetes on immunohistochemical stain, and syphilis serological titers were positive.[]

  • Primary Syphilis

    Primary syphilis is the first clinical stage of the sexually transmitted infection caused by Treponema pallidum, a spirochetal bacterial pathogen.[] Abstract Syphilis is an infectious spirochetal disease caused by Treponema pallidum.[] Immunohistochemical staining for T. pallidum using an anti-T. pallidum antibody showed numerous spirochetes in the lower portion of the epidermis, scattered inside inflammatory[]

  • Tertiary Syphilis

    Moreover, immunohistochemical staining for T. pallidum detected some spirochetes close to the atrophic adipocytes allowing the diagnosis of lypo-atrophic panniculitis tertiary[] The spirochetes can cause extensive damage in the body, sometimes leading to death.[] Syphilis is caused by the spirochete, treponema pallidum.[]
