A case study of female genital tuberculosis in a Western European setting


Kocher, C; Weber, R; Friedl, A (2011). A case study of female genital tuberculosis in a Western European setting. Infection, 39(1):59-63.

Abstract

We have studied five women with genital tuberculosis (TB), which is an uncommon disease in Western European countries. However, young women that have emigrated from a country with high TB-prevalence and have complaints of unexplained infertility and nonspecific abdominal or pelvic symptoms should be checked for this disease. Because genital tuberculosis frequently causes infertility, early diagnosis and treatment are crucial, necessitating rapid microscopic, histological, and microbiological (culture) testing in suspected cases.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
