Varicella Zoster Virus

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is the etiological agent of chickenpox. Von Bokay was the first to observe that susceptible children might develop varicella after exposure to the herpes zoster virus. Joseph Garland, a long-term editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, was the first to suggest that zoster reflected activation of a latent varicella virus. a1 In 1954, Thomas Weller confirmed von Bokay's observation that children develop varicella following exposure to patients with herpes zoster by demonstrating, with tissue culture and antibody studies, that the two diseases were caused by the same virus. J The likelihood of developing zoster increases with advancing age, a phenomenon attributed to immune senescence and a decline in the VZV-specific T-lymphocyte population. 1 Varicella, or chickenpox, results from the initial exposure to VZV, and approximately 1 in 1000 to 4000 patients with varicella develop neurological complications of encephalitis...

Classes Of Drugs That Target Hiv Rt

Nucleoside analog, acyclovir, which became a widely used drug. Acyclovir is a guanosine analog containing an acyclic sugar chain, and its initial activation is via a selective phosphorylation by the thymidine kinases of herpesviruses such as herpes simplex 1 or varicella zoster (11). Acyclovir triphosphate acts as a substrate for the herpesvirus-encoded DNA polymerase, leading to incorporation into the primer strand and chain termination. Thus, nucleoside analogs were obvious starting points in the search for anti-HIV drugs, although, in contrast to most herpesviruses, HIV does not encode a thymidine kinase, hence, the activation of the nucleoside is entirely via cellular kinases. Inhibitor screens against HIV in tissue culture identified a number of potent nucleosides, and zidovudine (azidothymidine) was rapidly approved for treating AIDS patients. Biochemical assays identified zidovudine triphosphate as a selective inhibitor of HIV RT compared with the cellular DNA polymerase-a...

Sodium channel expression in experimental painful diabetic neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathies often accompany disease states, including diabetes mellitus, herpes zoster and HIV, and are a major cause of pain syndromes in these patients. While the molecular mechanisms underlying the neuropathic pain are largely unknown, recent work with a model of peripheral neuropathy, the rodent strepto-zotocin-induced diabetic neuropathy, has provided some insight into processes that may contribute to the painful condition. In these studies, alterations of sodium channel expression have been linked to the development of painful neuropathy 53, 82, 83 , and may provide a molecular mechanism underlying this condition.

Trigeminal Neuralgia Tic Douloureux

The diagnosis of tic douloureux can usually be made by history alone, but the disorder must be distinguished from other causes of facial pain syndromes such as glossopharyngeal neuralgia, which can be confused with tic douloureux that involves the third division of CNV. Herpes zoster or post-herpetic neuralgia may also provide some diagnostic confusion. Tumors or vascular lesions of the cerebellopontine angle y or within the trigeminal ganglion itself may induce pain similar to that

Emtricitabine In Pediatric Patients Pharmacokinetics Efficacy And Safety

Treatment-emergent mutations were detected in three ART-experienced patients who had genotyping at baseline and time-of-failure. Overall, 12 of patients experienced at least one severe (grade 3 or greater) adverse event. Adverse events of moderate or greater (> grade 2) severity that were judged possibly or probably related to emtricitabine included leukopenia (two patients), anemia (one patient), pancreatitis pleural effusion (one patient), Herpes zoster (one patient), vomiting (one patient), and skin discoloration (one patient).

Far Distal Peripheral Lesions

Isolated lesions of either the glossopharyngeal or vagus nerves are unusual. As noted earlier, glossopharyngeal nerve abnormalities may be clinically undetectable unless adjacent structures are also involved. Perhaps the most common vagus nerve lesion is that involving the recurrent laryngeal nerve, resulting in ipsilateral vocal cord paresis and hoarseness of voice. The left nerve has a longer course, with its looped recurrence in the chest rather than in the neck, as on the right. The nerve passes around the aorta before returning rostrally to the larynx. The left recurrent laryngeal nerve may be compromised by an expanding aortic arch aneurysm or other intrathoracic processes, such as enlargement of the left atrium of the heart, pulmonary neoplasm, or mediastinal adenopathy. Both right and left superior or recurrent laryngeal nerves may be injured during the course of neck surgery such as thyroidectomy. Vocal cord paralysis has been described with vagal neuropathy attributed to...

Mechanism Of Action And In Vitro Activity

Adefovir and tenofovir are both active in vitro and in vivo against hepadna-viruses (such as HBV) and retroviruses (3-5). The spectrum of in vitro antiretroviral activity is similar for both compounds, and includes HIV-1 and HIV-2, simian immunodeficiency virus, feline immunodeficiency virus, visna-maedi virus of sheep, and murine leukemia and sarcoma viruses (6-9). Of note, tenofovir has demonstrated activity against non-B HIV-1 subtypes. The mean 50 inhibitory concentration (IC50) values for tenofovir against HIV-1 subtypes A, C, D, E, F, G, and O in primary peripheral blood mononuclear cell cultures were all within twofold of the HIV subtype B IC50 value (range, 0.55-0.22 pM) (10). Although cidofovir is not active against retroviruses, it possesses in vitro activity against a variety of DNA viruses, including herpes simplex viruses 1 and 2, varicella-zoster virus, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, papillomavirus, polyomavirus, adenovirus, and poxvirus (6).

Effects of HIV on O tsutsugamushi Infection

AIDS patients coinfected with some intracellular organisms have been found to have more severe disease and more frequent and prolonged bacteremia. Varicella-zoster virus produces more severe clinical manifestations in HIV-infected patients than in individuals that are not infected, whereas Salmonella species cause bacteremia more often in patients with AIDS than in non-HIV-infected patients. However, the opposite appears to be the case with the intracellular bacterium O. tsutsugamushi. O. tsutsugamushi blood culture positivity rates were significantly higher in HIV-uninfected subjects (48.6 ) than in HIV-infected individuals (14.3 ) and there are no differences in scrub typhus disease severity between HIV-infected and non-HIV-infected patients (126).

Painful Legs Moving Toes Syndrome

Painful legs-moving toes syndrome (PLMIS) is a movement disorder associated with significant sensory symptoms. Ihe condition is idiopathic in origin but usually develops in association with back pain and often in the context of prior back injury or surgery. No specific pathophysiological mechanisms have been elucidated, and although a spinal cord or peripheral nervous system origin has been proposed, electrophysiological studies are often normal. y Because the condition sometimes follows herpes zoster infection, primary involvement of the posterior roots and ganglia has been suggested to explain the syndrome. Ihe movements are not a response to the pain because after local anesthesia or sympathetic blockade, the movements promptly recur. Clinically, the condition involves continuous writhing movements of the toes and pain in the legs. Ihe pain may range from mildly irritating to excruciatingly severe. y In most cases, it has a constant, boring quality, but it can be burning or...

Hiv1associated Peripheral Neuropathy Syndromes

Acute demyelinating polyneuropathy, brachial plexopathy, and mononeuritides may occur at the time of acute infection or seroconversion. Acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP) and chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy (CIDP), although rare, are the most common form of peripheral neuropathy during the latent, asymptomatic, or mildly symptomatic stage of HIV- 1 disease when CD4+ cell counts are greater than or equal to 500 cells mm. 3 As immunodeficiency progresses and as CD4+ cell counts decline to the 200 to 500 cells mm3 range, the most frequent neuropathies encountered are mononeuritis multiplex and herpes zoster neuropathy. With HIV-1 disease progression (CD4+ cell counts are less than 200 cells mm 3 ), the occurrence of distal symmetrical polyneuropathy increases, as does the prevalence of other types of neuropathies such as autonomic neuropathy, mononeuritis multiplex, cranial mononeuropathies, mononeuropathies-radiculopathies associated with neoplasms, and...

Congenital triangular alopecia Brauer nevus temporally limited alopecia

A granulomatous disease of the bowel. Cutaneous manifestations include pyoderma gangrenosum, exfoliative dermatitis, erythema multiforme and Stevens-Johnson syndrome, urticaria, herpes zoster, palmar erythema, cutaneous Crohn's disease, and necrotizing vasculitis.

Mucocutaneous diseases associated with hiv infection

Skin Diseases Associated Hiv

Infection with varicella-zoster virus may result in several different clinical manifestations. The occurrence of chickenpox in children or adults with HIV infection may result in disseminated cutaneous disease with systemic manifestations. These patients require treatment with systemic antiviral agents such as acyclovir, famciclovir, and valacyclovir. Herpes zoster (shingles) is not uncommon in adults and children with HIV infection and may be the initial manifestation of HIV infection ( Fig 18-2). The occurrence of zoster in a patient at risk for HIV infection should prompt the provider to suggest appropriate counseling and testing for HIV. Chronic ecthymatous varicella-zoster virus infection develops either in patients with AIDS and a previous history of varicella-zoster exposure or in children with HIV infection and varicella to therapy and may heal with scarring. Dissemination of both herpes simplex and herpes zoster to extracutaneous sites has been reported. Figure 18-2. Herpes...

Syndromes of Lesions Involving Peripheral Branches of Cranial Nerve V

Fig IQ-B ), inflammation and vesicular eruption involving all branches of V1 as well as small arterioles within the gasserian ganglion may result in excruciating, lancinating pain in the periorbital region. y Symptoms of herpes zoster ophthalmicus typically begin 2 to 3 days before the appearance of vesicles and may diminish after 2 to 3 weeks. Hypalgesia and paresthesias may be noted during and after lesions heal. Pain may persist after the rash is gone only to evolve into post-herpetic neuralgia. This syndrome consists of burning, lancinating, aching pain in the V1 territory often in association with paresthesias and hyperpathia. As in trigeminal neuralgia, trigger points can evoke pain in response to cutaneous stimuli. y , y Figure 10-6 Acute (A) and resolving B) herpes zoster arrows). In A, there is selective involvement of the nasociliary branch of the trigeminal nerve.

Timetoevent data and censoring

In many cases an endpoint directly measures time from the point of randomisation to some well-defined event, for example time to death (survival time) in oncology or time to rash healing in Herpes Zoster. The data from such an endpoint invariably has a special feature, known as censoring. For example, suppose the times to death for a group of patients on a particular treatment in a 24 month oncology study are as follows Time to rash healing in Herpes Zoster Time to complete cessation of pain in Herpes Zoster

Differential Diagnosis

The differential diagnosis of a patient with an eschar encompasses various infectious and noninfectious syndromes, including trauma, spider bite, erythema gangrenosum, factitial dermatitis, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, aspergillosis, and several diseases caused by agents associated with bioterrorism (e.g., Francisella tularensis, Yersinia pestis, Burkholderia pseudomallei, and B. anthracis) (13,20,22,93). Occasionally, rickettsialpox may even mimic some sexually transmitted diseases. Shankman described a patient with an ulcerated lesion on his penis and bilateral inguinal adenopathy for whom his initial differential diagnosis included chancroid, granuloma inguinale, syphilis, and herpes simplex however, a papular rash appeared three days later and allowed Shankman to establish the diagnosis of rickettsialpox (8). The eschar of rickettsialpox is indistinguishable from the primary lesions associated with many other rickettsioses, including African tick bite fever, boutonneuse fever,...

Intentiontotreat and timetoevent data

In order to illustrate the kinds of arguments and considerations which are needed in relation to intention-to-treat, the discussion in this section will consider a set of applications where problems frequently arise. In Chapter 13 we will cover methods for the analysis of time-to-event or so-called survival data, but for the moment I would like to focus on endpoints within these areas that do not use the time-point at which randomisation occurs as the start point for the time-to-event measure. Examples include the time from rash healing to complete cessation of pain in Herpes Zoster, the time from six weeks after start of treatment to first seizure in epilepsy and time from eight weeks to relapse amongst responders at week 8 in severe depression. In the case of a randomised trial in Herpes Zoster, patients have the potential to cease pain prior to rash healing and these patients would not enter the analysis of time to cessation of pain from rash healing. Invariably the likelihood that...

Viral Infection

Influenza epidemics of 1954, 1957, and 1959 in Australia and Japan have revealed positive associations between gestational exposure to this virus and development of schizophrenia. Reports of viral diseases from 1920 to 1955 in Connecticut and Massachusetts found associations between the development of schizophrenia and gestational exposure to the measles, varicella-zoster, and polio viruses (Torrey et al., 1988). Studies have also found that individuals exposed to rubella in utero, during the 1964 rubella epidemic, had a substantially greater risk of developing nonaffective psychosis than nonexposed subjects (Brown et al., 2000).

Reyes Syndrome

A growing body of evidence suggests that Reye's syndrome may be a multiorgan disease due to diffuse mitochondrial injury of unknown origin.y , y Mitochondria in hepatocytes, brain capillary endothelial cells, neurons, cardiac and skeletal muscle fibers, and pancreatic cells show histological damage. Liver mitochondrial enzyme activity is low. y In one study, several depressed electron transport enzymes and lowered ATP adenosine diphosphate (ADP) ratios were documented.y Epidemiological studies strongly associate three virus infections (influenza B, influenza A, and varicella-zoster (see Chap.t Iiii4.1 ) with Reye's syndrome, although the mechanism of their involvement with the pathogenesis of the condition is unclear. There is no evidence of full viral replication in the two primary organs of damage liver and brain. It has been suggested that viral proteins are toxic, that the infection causes release of toxins, or that the viral infection plus...

Influenza Virus

The term influenza derives from a flu epidemic in the 15th century that was attributed to an influence of the stars. Influenza viruses are single-stranded RNA viruses that are members of the orthomyxovirus family.y Influenza A virus is a major cause of respiratory disease in children and adults. y Influenza B and varicella-zoster virus are the most common antecedent infections in patients with Reye's syndrome. Influenza-type illnesses have been reported to precede the development of acute ascending paralysis, the Guillain-Barre syndrome. In utero exposure to the influenza virus has been suggested as a contributing factor to the development of schizophrenia. y y y The occurrence of influenza in mothers in the first trimester of pregnancy has been associated with an increased risk of neural tube defects.y A reversible paralytic syndrome and the Guillain-Barre syndrome have been associated with influenza immunizations. y , y

Internal cancer

A final word on the geriatric population concerns the association of internal cancer and skin disease. Skin lesions may develop from internal malignancies either by metastatic spread or by the occurrence of nonspecific eruptions. The most interesting of the nonspecific dermatoses is the rare entity acanthosis nigricans. The presence of the velvety, papillary, pigmented hypertrophies of this disease in the axillae, the groin, and other moist areas of an adult indicates an internal cancer, usually of the abdominal viscera, in over 50 of cases. A benign form of acanthosis nigricans exists in children and becomes most manifest at the age of puberty. This benign form is not associated with cancer. Herpes zoster (see Fig,34-7B) can be severe, painful, and at times, especially when severe, associated with underlying cancer.

Aseptic Meningitis

The differential diagnosis of this clinical presentation includes other causes of aseptic meningitis (enteroviruses, varicella zoster), bacterial meningitis, intracranial mass (abscess), subarachnoid hemorrhage, and other causes of headache (migraine). In HIV-related aseptic meningitis, the CSF will reveal a mononuclear pleocytosis ranging from 20 to a few hundred cell mm3 in the association of an elevated protein. The diagnosis will be made by the demonstration of HIV-1 infection, which may require repeat testing after the resolution of the acute presentation.

Subjective Objective

General measures in the treatment of HE include maintaining adequate nutrition, good renal function, and acid-base status, as well as reducing colonic ammonia production. Because normal brain pH is 6.95 and blood pH is 7.4, there is a tendency for ammonia to enter the brain. By minimizing the interaction between enteric bacterial flora and nitrogenous substances, colonic ammonia production is reduced. Dietary protein restriction, avoidance of constipation, and GI tract evacuation are helpful in this respect. The GI tract is evacuated through the use of cathartics (e.g., lactulose) and enemas. Lactulose is a synthetic disaccharide capable of reducing arterial ammonia levels. In the colon, it is converted into acidic metabolites, which create a pH gradient across the intestinal wall. Colon acidification was thought to select for bacteria that did not contain urease. Instead, colon acidification decreases blood ammonia by trapping it in the acidified feces, thereby making it unavailable...

Infectious disease

HERPES ZOSTER. (See also Chap 17 ) Herpes zoster (Fig 2.6-.,1,.1 ,A.-C see Fig 17-4, Fig, 18.-2., and Fig 34-7C) is the result of reactivation of an endogenous infection with the varicella-zoster virus. Following an acute infection with varicella, the virus persists in a latent form in the sensory ganglia (dorsal root and trigeminal ganglia) for the lifetime of the individual. Upon reactivation, a vesicular eruption develops that is usually limited to a dermatome. The rash typically does not cross the midline and is limited to that part of the skin innervated by a single sensory ganglia. The disease is usually characterized by unilateral and dermatomal radicular pain and paresthesia that generally precedes the eruption by days and can range from itching, tingling, or burning to severe pain. Depending on the nerves involved, sensory and motor disorders may appear (i.e., Ramsay Hunt syndrome with involvement of the geniculate ganglion).

Plexopathy

Localized to a single lumbosacral root or peripheral nerve. Pain is a prominent early manifestation when secondary to neoplasm. The differential diagnosis includes idiopathic plexitis, vasculitis, diabetic polyradiculopathy, infection (e.g., with herpes zoster or Schistosoma japonicum) hereditary liability to pressure palsies, hemorrhage, trauma, obstetrical complications, and tumor irradiation.
