1. Nocturnal sedation in a child with facial ulceration.
Match Strength: 16.914
Mostly, herpes zoster affects adults and therefore childhood presentation can represent a diagnostic challenge. Childhood herpes zoster, when it occurs, can also be associated with peripheral nerve complications, as illustrated by this case. A 3-year-old child who had herpes zoster developed a nasolabial scar resulting in a shallow non-healing ulcer from being repeatedly picked. Healing was only achieved after nocturnal sedation, with chloral hydrate. Publication Types: Case ... Read More »

2. Rates and predictors of herpes zoster in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal disorders.
Match Strength: 9.722
OBJECTIVES: Herpes zoster (HZ) is a common disorder that causes substantial pain and morbidity. We examined its rate and predictors in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders to determine if HZ was increased in RA and whether treatment contributed to the risk of HZ. METHODS: After excluding patients witzh prior HZ, we assessed 10 614 RA and 1721 MSK patients by semi-annual questionnaires during 33 825 patient-years of follow-up. Predictors of HZ were determined by Cox regression and expressed as hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI). ... Read More »

3. Childhood encephalitis in Crete, Greece.
Match Strength: 6.836
This study included all 18 cases of children hospitalized for encephalitis in the referral university hospital of Heraklion, Crete, Greece, during the 5-year period from 2000 to 2004. Encephalitis was attributed to viral infection (echovirus, herpes simplex virus 1, varicella-zoster virus, cytomegalovirus, and influenza A) in eight children and to bacteria (Mycoplasma pneumoniae, group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus, and Rickettsia typhi) in a further five cases. Multiple hyperintense brain lesions on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were associated with a severe clinical presentation but not ... Read More »

4. Rapid detection, serotyping and quantitation of dengue viruses by TaqMan real-time one-step RT-PCR.
Match Strength: 5.281
The use of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in molecular diagnosis is now accepted worldwide and has become an essential tool in the research laboratory. In the laboratory, a rapid detection, serotyping and quantitation, one-step real-time RT-PCR assay was developed for dengue virus using TaqMan probes. In this assay, a set of forward and reverse primers were designed targeting the serotype conserved region at the NS5 gene, at the same time flanking a variable region for all four serotypes which were used to design the serotype-specific TaqMan probes. This multiplex one-step RT-PCR assay ... Read More »

5. Primary treatment of acute retinal necrosis with oral antiviral therapy.
Match Strength: 5.135
PURPOSE: To explore the possibility of oral antiviral therapy in lieu of intravenous acyclovir for treating acute retinal necrosis (ARN), a necrotizing retinopathy caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 or 2 or by varicella zoster virus. DESIGN: Retrospective, interventional, small case series. PARTICIPANTS: Four patients (6 eyes). METHODS: Patients were treated with oral antiviral therapy. Medications included valacyclovir (1 g 3 times daily), oral famciclovir (500 mg 3 times daily), and topical and oral corticosteroids. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Improvement of symptoms, including photophobia, ... Read More »
