Equivalence of Boosted Atazanavir Based Regimens and Currently Effective HAART Regimens with Other PI's/NNRTI's in HIV + Children and Adolescents with Elevated Lipid Levels

Janice Piatt, Jeff Foti, Kimberley Bickes, Deborah Frusciano and Laura Clarke-Steffen
Abstract

A frequent side-effect of antiretroviral therapy is elevation of plasma lipids and cholesterol. Atazanavir has been shown in adults to have a smaller elevation in plasma lipids in relation to other protease inhibitors. The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of Atazanavir in pediatric patients switching to Atazanavir from other HAART regimens and to compare the lipid levels after the switch.

Aortoenteric Fistula in Patient with Infected Aortic Endovascular Stent

Giuseppe Grande, Helga Bertani, Angelo Caruso and Rita Conigliaro
Abstract

A 70-years-old man was admitted at the emergency room for onset of fever, malaise and discharge of melena. At the admission, his vital signs were: blood pressure 135/70 mmHg, heart rate 92 bpm, O2 saturation 95%. Blood sample showed mild normocyitc anaemia (Hb 12.1 g/dL), leucocytosis (White blood cells count 12.300/mmc, Neutrophil 77%), rise of C-reactive protein (7.3 mg/dL, normal value < 0.5 mg/L), normal kidney function (creatinine 1.0 mg/dL). Clinical examination was remarkable for mild epigastric pain.

Right Superior Vena Cava Draining into the Left Atrium

Songul Usalp, Ali Rıza Karaci, Kevser Gulcihan Balci, Volkan Yazicioglu, Murat Baskurt and Nurcan Arat Koc
Abstract

Anomalous systemic venous connection with the left atrium (LA) is an unusual congenital cause of a right-to-left shunt. The most common variant is persistent left superior vena cava (SVC), which is estimated to occur among 2.1% to 4.3% of the people with congenital hearts defects. Much less frequently, an anomalous right superior vena cava (SVC) connects to the LA.

Erythromelalgia in an Infant Caused by Adenovirus Gastroenteritis

Gulsum Alkan, Melike Keser Emiroglu and Huseyin Tokgoz
Abstract

Reactive thrombocytosis (RT) is typically a result of bacterial infections in children. RT due to viruses is rarely seen and is most often secondary to a respiratory tract infection. Erythromelalgia (EM) is a rare condition caused by arteriovenous shunting and reduced capillary perfusion. Thrombocytosis can cause microvascular thrombi and can result in EM.
