Schwerer Verlauf einer Miliartuberkulose bei einem 34-jährigen Patienten mit Colitis ulcerosa und HIV-Infektion unter einer TNF-α-Antikörper-Therapie


Zeitz, J; Huber, M; Rogler, G (2010). Schwerer Verlauf einer Miliartuberkulose bei einem 34-jährigen Patienten mit Colitis ulcerosa und HIV-Infektion unter einer TNF-α-Antikörper-Therapie. Medizinische Klinik, 105(4):314-318.

Abstract

A 34-year-old HIV-positive patient with ulcerative colitis was transferred to the authors' hospital because of progressive worsening of his general condition with intermittent fever, increasing lymphopenia, anemia, thrombopenia and neutropenia under anti-tumor necrosis factor-(TNF-)alpha therapy with infliximab. In spite of negative screening tests before initiation of infliximab therapy and intermittent tests during treatment, miliary tuberculosis was finally diagnosed and a tuberculostatic therapy was started. The patient's clinical condition worsened due to the development of a serious exudative necrotizing pancreatitis which was likely to be caused by the tuberculostatic treatment. Due to severe pulmonary infiltrates and pleural effusions with respiratory failure the patient finally passed away.

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.
