Rapport og anbefaling vedrørende ulemper og fordele ved henholdsvis at undlade eller gennemføre lumbalpunktur for patienter i blodfortyndende behandling mistænkt for akut bakteriel meningitis.

Denne vejledning er tiltænkt diagnostik og behandling af formodet Lyme neuroborreliose hos voksne. Vejledningen er udarbejdet som et supplement til Borrelia klaringsrapport (2014).

Af Rikke Krogh-Madsen, formand for Dansk Selskab for Infektionsmedicin. Der er lige nu massivt fokus på læger der har begået fejl. Aktuelt drejer det sig om behandling af meningokoksygdom. Bestyrelsen for Dansk Selskab for Infektionsmedicin (DSI) kender ikke til detaljerne i de konkrete sager og har ikke set sagsakterne. Dette er derfor en generel udtalelse som tager udgangspunkt i udmeldingen fra Patienterstatningen vedr. de tre meningokok-sager.

QSP1 and 28S rRNA assays are useful in identifying Cryptococcus species. qPCR results correlate well with baseline quantitative cryptococcal culture and show a similar decline in fungal load during induction therapy. These assays could be a faster alternative to quantitative cryptococcal culture to determine fungal load clearance. The clinical implications of the possible detection of viable but non-culturable cells in CSF during induction therapy remain unclear.

Neonatal and infant meningitis and sepsis are associated with substantial mortality and long-term morbidity.[1] Early detection of meningitis in suspected sepsis patients is important because of the difference in empiric antibiotic regimen, dosage and duration of antibiotic treatment. Also, it influences the need for monitoring of complications during hospitalization, as well as the risk of long-term neurodevelopmental impairment.[2] The interpretation of CSF parameters in neonates can be difficult due to c…

Abstract . Background . Cryptococcal meningitis causes substantial mortality in high-HIV prevalence African countries despite advances in disease management and increasing antiretroviral therapy coverage. Reliable diagnosis of cryptococcal meningitis is cheap and more accessible than other indicators of AHD burden such as CD4 testing or investigation for disseminated tuberculosis; therefore, monitoring cryptococcal meningitis incidence has the potential to serve as a valuable metric of HIV programmatic succ…

. Background. Various pathogens, including bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses can lead to meningitis. Among viruses causing meningitis, Toscana virus (TOSV), a phlebovirus, is transmitted through sandfly bites. TOSV infection may be suspected if patients with enterovirus- and herpesvirus-negative aseptic (non-bacterial) meningitis recall recent insect bites. Other epidemiological factors (season, rural area) may be considered. The broad range of possible meningitis aetiologies poses considerable diagno…
