Abstract

Central nervous system (CNS) infections, accounting for 4-29% of CNS lesions in transplant recipients, are a significant post-transplant complication. Focal CNS infectious lesions or brain abscesses have been documented in 0.36-1% of the transplant recipients. Mycelial fungi, particular...read more

Cryptococcosis

Cryptococcosis is a common fungal infection that caused by cryptococcus neoformans in immunocompetent individuals as well as in immunosuppressive patients with such as the HIV infection. Discover the latest research on cryptococcosis here.

Central Nervous System Fungal Infections

Central nervous system fungal infections are rare and typically occur in immunocompromised patients, such as those with HIV infection or transplant recipients. Discover the latest research on central nervous system fungal infections here.

Brain Abscess

Brain abscess is an accumulation of pus caused by inflammation and infected materials in the brain. Symptoms include fever, headache, seizures and other neurological problems. Discover the latest research on brain abscess today.

Listeriosis (ASM)

Listeriosis is mainly a food-borne illness caused by l. monocytogenes; people most prone to the disease are pregnant women, newborns, elderly, and those with hiv or other diseases compromising immunity. Discover the latest research on listeriosis here.

Neuroimaging (MDS)

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.

Central Nervous System Parasitic Infections

Central nervous system parasitic infections can occur when parasites invade the blood-brain barrier and can also occur in immunocompromised patients. Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite that can lead to encephalitis and other neurological symptoms. Discover the latest research central nervous system parasitic infections here.

Toxoplasmosis (ASM)

Toxoplasmosis, caused by the protozoan parasite toxoplasma gondii, is one of the most common parasitic infections. Here is the latest research.

Meningoencephalitis

Meningoencephalitis, also known as herpes meningoencephalitis, is a medical condition that simultaneously resembles both meningitis, which is an infection or inflammation of the meninges, and encephalitis, which is an infection or inflammation of the brain. Discover the latest research on meningoencephalitis here.

Toxoplasmosis

Toxoplasmosis, caused by the protozoan parasite toxoplasma gondii, is one of the most common parasitic infections. Here is the latest research.

Central Nervous System Viral Diseases

Central nervous system viral diseases can cause inflammation leading to encephalitis, meningitis, or myelitis. These infections can be diagnosed by spinal tap. Discover the latest research on central nervous system viral diseases here.

Central Nervous System Bacterial Infections

Central nervous system bacterial infections are medical emergencies and include bacterial meningitis and spinal epidural abscess. Treatment with antibiotics can reduce morbidity and mortality. Discover the latest research on central nervous system bacterial infections here.
