Crystal precipitation and granulomatous inflammation in multiple organs after foscarnet therapy in a lung transplant recipient


Tischler, Verena; Schuurmans, Macé M; Boehler, Annette; Gaspert, Ariana (2012). Crystal precipitation and granulomatous inflammation in multiple organs after foscarnet therapy in a lung transplant recipient. Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation, 31(9):1037-1040.

Abstract

We present the case of a lung transplant recipient with disseminated crystal precipitation, and granulomatous and fibrinous inflammation after therapy with foscarnet (Foscavir; AstraZeneca, Zug, Switzerland) for recurring ganciclovir-resistant cytomegalovirus (CMV) reactivation. This is the first description of systemic crystal precipitation and granulomatous inflammation associated with foscarnet therapy with predominant involvement of the heart, kidneys and lungs.

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.
