nontuberculous mycobacterial immune reconstitution syndrome in hiv-infected patients: spectrum of disease and long-term follow-up.the long-term outcome and spectrum of disease of nontuberculous mycobacterial immune reconstitution syndrome have not been described.200516231262
[mycobacterium genavense infection in 2 hiv seropositive patients in amsterdam].two patients with an hiv-i infection, a man aged 47 with confusion, aphasia and diarrhoea, and a man aged 32 with dysphagia, a non-productive cough and diarrhoea, were diagnosed as having a disseminated mycobacterium genavense infection. both had low counts of cd4+ t lymphocytes. they responded to antimycobacterial treatment. m. genavense was recognized in geneva in the early nineties as a causative agent of disseminated mycobacterial infections in hiv-seropositive patients with poor cellular im ...19989623172
dapsone/pyrimethamine may prevent mycobacterial disease in immunosuppressed patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus.dapsone exhibits activity against mycobacterium tuberculosis and mycobacterium avium complex (mac) in vitro. we retrospectively examined the incidence of mycobacterial diseases within a randomized prospective trial of prophylaxis for pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and toxoplasmosis. of 501 participants who had not previously had a mycobacterial disease, 274 received dapsone/pyrimethamine (200/75 mg once weekly) and 227 received aerosolized pentamidine (300 mg once every 4 weeks). the median cd4 ...19957742423
mycobacterium genavense. autopsy findings in three patients.the authors report on the pathologic findings in three cases of disseminated infection with mycobacterium genavense, a recently described nontuberculous mycobacterium, in human immunodeficiency virus (hiv)-i-positive patients. the mycobacterium was identified by amplification of a 16s rdna gene fragment and subsequent sequence determination. the organs mainly involved were the small intestine, spleen, liver, and lymph nodes. in contrast, lungs, myocardium, and kidneys were not involved, or only ...19948279457
bias of culture techniques for diagnosing mixed mycobacterium genavense and mycobacterium avium infection in aids.disseminated mycobacterium avium infection is a common complication in late-stage aids. we describe a patient seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus with a disseminated infection caused by mycobacteria. acid-fast rods were visible by microscopy in stool and bone marrow and in specimens from skin, liver, spleen, lung, and lymph nodes. using molecular biology techniques and standard culture techniques, we found evidence of a mixed mycobacterial infection with m. genavense and m. avium. we s ...19948195400
