In fulminant blastomycosis with multiorgan failure, the earliest diagnosis possible is crucial for successful treatment. If severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) develops, miniaturised veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) might provide a unique and efficacious possibility to prolong the time frame for diagnosis and the beginning of treatment. This is ...

We measure the mass of the eta;{'} meson using psi(2S)-->pi;{+}pi;{-}J/psi, J/psi-->gammaeta;{'} events acquired with the CLEO-c detector operating at the CESR e;{+}e;{-} collider. Using three decay modes, eta;{'}-->rho;{0}gamma, eta;{'}-->pi;{+}pi;{-}eta with eta-->gammagamma, and eta;{'}-->pi;{+}pi;{-}eta with eta-->pi;{+}pi;{-}pi;{0}, we find M_{eta;{'}}=957.793+/-0.054+/-0.036 MeV, in which the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. This result ...

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune demyelinating disease that is rarely associated with aseptic meningitis. However, certain syndromes causing aseptic meningitis are often associated with central nervous system demyelination that mimics multiple sclerosis (MS). Since many of these syndromes are potentially treatable, unmasking an alternative diagnosis is essential whenever an MS-like ...

AIM: Sarcoidosis is a heterogeneous disorder with a strong genetic influence. Genetic factors are also thought to influence disease severity and outcome. We sought to determine whether polymorphisms within CCR2 gene predispose to Löfgren's syndrome--a clinically and genetically distinct sarcoidosis phenotype--and, importantly, whether this association is independent of the known ...
