Disseminated VZV infection and asymptomatic VZV vasculopathy after steroid abuse


Nagel, Maria A; Lenggenhager, Daniela; White, Teresa; Khmeleva, Nelly; Heintzman, Anna; Boyer, Philip J; Gilden, Don (2015). Disseminated VZV infection and asymptomatic VZV vasculopathy after steroid abuse. Journal of Clinical Virology, 66:72-75.

Abstract

A 60-year-old man who abused corticosteroids developed thoracic-distribution zoster. Varicella zoster virus (VZV) DNA was found in non-healing skin 3 months later. He died suddenly 2 months later. Skin was ulcerated and necrotic. VZV was widespread in organs and arteries, particularly coronary arteries and aorta, with VZV vasculopathy in the posterior cerebral artery.

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.
