Eosinophilic gastroenteritis with involvement of the urinary bladder
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 02:23:16 +0100 | Pediatric Radiology
We describe the CT findings of eosinophilic gastroenteritis accompanied by bladder involvement in an 11-year-old boy. CT imaging showed diffuse wall thickening of the entire gastrointestinal tract from the esophagus to the colon and revealed a halo sign, irregular fold thickening and luminal narrowing without obstruction of the gastrointestinal wall. Another CT finding was the diffuse thickening of the bladder wall with moderate enhancement on postcontrast CT. The boy underwent endoscopic biopsy from various sites of the gut wall and histology revealed increased eosinophiliac infiltration in the mucosa. After corticosteroid therapy, the boy recovered gradually. The case emphasizes that not only the gastrointestinal tract but also the urinary bladder may be involved in children with eosinop...

They give services from seven in the morning to eight thirty in the evening, charging 50 cents.

[Newsdesk] Research brief
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 06:15:25 +0100 | The Lancet Infectious Diseases
30 years after AIDS first emerged in the USA, the geographical source and early dissemination of HIV-1 in the human population remains controversial. A new evolutionary analysis of HIV-1 sequence data from central Africa suggests that the HIV-1 group M viruses originated in Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of the Congo) in the early 1920s and then, because the city was an important commercial transportation hub, spread across central Africa. An exponential increase in group M infections after 1960 suggests that post-independence changes in sexual behaviour in and around Kinshasa might have driven the epidemic growth of the HIV-1 group M pandemic.
