Lneonatal meningitis due to streptoccocus dysgalactiae subspecies equisimilis: a case report and literature review

Streptococcus dysgalactiae subsp. equisimilis (SDSE) was firstly reported as a toxon among human streptococcal pathogens in the year 1996. Diseases caused by SDSE may vary from milder skin involvements including wound infection, erysipelas, and cellulitis to life-threatening clinical pictures as streptococcal toxic shock syndrome and necrotizing fasciitis. We describe a case of SDSE sepsis and meningitis in a 2-day-old newborn.…

Assessment of platelet reactivity after the anthracycline-based chemotherapy via mean platelet volume: Does it act on anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity?

Aim: Anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity is the most frequent dose-limited toxicity. There has been numerous hypothesis about this matter. As an indicator of platelet size, mean platelet volume (MPV) is correlated with platelet reactivity, aggregation, and long-term atherosclerosis. We aimed to study whether the anthracycline triggers the elevation of MPV. Material and Method: Patients who had breast carcinoma and received anthracycline-based chemotherapy…
