  • Toxoplasmosis: An Emerging and Re-emerging Zoonosis of Global Public
           Health Concern

    • Authors: Mahendra Pal; Gemechu Berhanu, Carl H.D. Steinmetz, Nino Durglishvili
      Pages: 32 - 38
      Abstract: Toxoplasmosis is an important emerging and re-emerging zoonotic disease that results from the infection with Toxoplasma gondii, which is one of the most common parasites in the world. The disease usually happens through consuming undercooked contaminated meat, exposure from diseased cat feces, or mother-to-child transmission all through pregnancy. Toxoplasmosis is commonly transmitted via the mouth when Toxoplasma gondii oocysts or tissue cysts are eaten by chance. Congenital transmission from mother to fetus can also arise. Transmission can arise from the stable organ transplant manner or hematogenous stem cellular transplants. The majority of individuals infected with toxoplasmosis, has no signs and symptoms and is not aware of being infected. However, some people show symptoms and signs similar to those of the flu, inclusive of body aches, swollen lymph nodes, headache, fever, fatigue, confusion, poor coordination, and seizures. Diagnosis of toxoplasmosis in human beings is made through organic, serological, histological, or molecular techniques, or with the aid of combining these techniques. The treatment is commonly encouraged for humans with serious health issues, inclusive of human beings with HIV.The infection may be prevented by eating of cooked meat, drinking wholesome potable water, pasteurization of milk, cleaning of vegetables, wearing gloves when gardening, periodic examination of pregnant women, and health education to the public about the reservoir of infection, mode of transmission and hazards of consuming raw meat.

  • Prevalence of Carbapenemase Encoding Genes and Antimicrobial Resistance
           Pattern of Enterobacteriaceae Isolated from Hospitalized Patients in
           Khartoum State, Sudan

    • Authors: Omnia M. Hamid; Omer M. Omer, Magdi A. Bayoumi
      Pages: 39 - 47
      Abstract: Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae strains have been responsible for an increasing number of hospital-acquired infections globally. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae and their frequency of antimicrobial-resistant patterns among hospitalized patients across three Khartoum State Teaching Hospitals, Sudan. Materials and Methods. A cross-sectional study was conducted at Khartoum State Teaching Hospitals from April 2018 to October 2019. A total of 384 non-duplicative Enterobacteriaceae strains were isolated from1062 clinical samples obtained from hospitalized patients receiving treatment across three main teaching hospitals. The samples were cultured into a MacConkey agar plate. The Enterobacteriaceae strains were differentiated by specific colony color and again by biochemical test. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed by the disc diffusion method. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of imipenem and meropenem was performed by the agar dilution method. Multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was performed to investigate the presence of carbapenemase-encoding genes. Data analysis was carried out using SPSS version 21. Results. Of the 36.2% (384/10.62) nonduplicate of Enterobacteriaceae strains isolated from clinical samples, 122 (31.8%) were carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE). Of these isolates, 37 (30.3%) harbored the blaIMP followed by; 29 (23.8%) blaNDM, 21 (17.2%) blaOXA-48, 6 (4.9%) blaGES, 5 (4.1%) were blaKPC, 3(2.5%) blaGIM-1, 2(1.6%) blaVIM and 1 (0.8%) blaSIM-1, while the remaining 19(15.6%) isolates carried combinations carbapenemase blagenes. The most predominant CPE strains were Escherichia coli 40 (32.8%) followed by Klebsiella pneumoniae 24 (19.7%) and Enterobacter aerogenes 14(11.5%). Most of the CPE isolates were isolated from wound swab 40(32.8), sputum 33(27.0), and urine 22(18.0) samples. Furthermost strains showed high resistance rates (>70%) to the antibiotics tested. Resistance to amikacin, tetracycline, co-trimoxazole, and nalidixic acid was 36.9%, 43.4%, 62.3%, and 63.9%, respectively and 82.8 % of CPE strains were susceptible to colistin. The detection of blagenes carbapenemases in CPE strains had a significant effect on both imipenem and meropenem MICs. Conclusion. The most prevalent carbapenemase-producing blagenes among clinical Enterobacteriaceae clinical isolates from the three Khartoum state regions were blaIMP, blaNDM, and blaOXA-48. In contrast, the propensity of the multidrug-resistant profile that has been associated with producing carbapenemase blagenes is alarming. Therefore, it is very important to establish a routine screening of carbapenemase-producing blagenes in clinical isolates to prevent the dissemination of resistant strains among both inpatients and outpatients in hospital settings.

  • Cutaneous Manifestations in COVID-19 “Long Haulers”: Is This A Part of
           the Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome'

    • Authors: Cameron Y. S. Lee
      Pages: 48 - 50
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a multisystem inflammatory syndrome that affects many different organs of the body. Extrapulmonary cutaneous manifestations are now being reported in greater frequency as occurring before or after onset of clinical symptoms. To the authors knowledge, there are few, if any published study that has documented the persistent cutaneous manifestations in patients who have recovered from COVID-19. In this report, we describe some of the cutaneous manifestations in patients known as COVID-19 “long haulers”.

  • Characterization of Selected Escherichia coli Pathovars and Their
           Antimicrobial Resistance Patterns among Diarrheal Children under the Age
           of Five Years from Machakos County, Kenya

    • Authors: Mururu Lilian Nkatha; Mourine Kangogo, Kenneth Kariuki Waititu, Willie Kipkemboi Sang
      Pages: 51 - 55
      Abstract: Background: Diarrheal diseases constitute an important cause of death among children under the age of five years globally. These diseases are caused by diarrheagenic Escherichia coli including enteropathogenic Escherichia coli and enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli among other agents. Treatment and management of diarrheal diseases including EPEC and ETEC is complicated by rapidly developing problem of antimicrobial resistance. Methods: Stool samples were collected from children under the age of five years attending Machakos Level 5 hospital. Escherichia coli was isolated and identified by culture-based techniques followed by multiplex polymerase chain reaction using primers specific for virulence genes associated with EPEC and ETEC pathovars. Confirmed EPEC and ETEC pathovars were subjected to a panel of eight antimicrobial agents. Results: Both EPEC and ETEC were detected in 29/118 (24.6%) samples collected during the study period. Prevalence of EPEC was higher 18 (15.3%) compared to ETEC that was detected in 11 (9.3%) samples analyzed. ETEC appeared to be more resistant to ampicillin (90.9%, 66.7%), trimethoprim (81.8%, 77.8%), gentamicin (45.5%, 22.2%), chloramphenicol (27.3%, 16.3%), cefuroxime (18.2%, 5.6%) and ciprofloxacin (9.1%, 5.6%) compared to EPEC respectively. On the other hand, EPEC displayed higher resistance against nalidixic acid (38.9%, 36.4%) and tetracycline (33.3%, 18.2%) compared to ETEC isolates. Conclusion: The role of EPEC and ETEC as a cause of infantile diarrhea cannot be underestimated in Machakos County, Kenya since they are both pathogenic and resistant to commonly used antimicrobial agents.

      Abstract: Objectives: To determine the current prevalence of neuromeningeal cryptococcosis (CNM) at the Brazzaville University Hospital and to identify the associated factors. Patients and method: This is a cross-sectional, descriptive and analytical study of CNM cases admitted to the infectious diseases unit between January 1, 2018 and March 31, 2021, i.e. 39 months. The diagnosis was made by positive direct examination of the LCS after India ink staining. Results: Eighty-three hospitalized patients (3.4% of admissions) with average age 40.5 ± 10.8 years (17-72 years), female (n = 51; 61.4%). The sex ratio was 0.6. They were civil servants (n = 22; 26.5%), single (n = 54; 65.1%). These patients lived in cities (n = 82; 98.8%), with a high school education (n = 42; 50.6%). They were immunocompromised in particular to HIV (n = 78; 94%), leukaemia (n =2; 2,4%), detected in hospital (n = 34; 44.9%) where they consulted for fever and headache respectively in 55 cases (66, 3%) and 44 cases (53%). Glasgow ranged from 8-13 in 34.9% (n = 29). Tuberculosis was the associated opportunistic infection in 25.3% of cases (n = 21). The mean cytorachia was 95.2 ± 200.6 (1-1300) / mm3 and the mean proteinorachia was 1.3 ± 0.9 (0.4-2.6) g / l. LCS pressure was> 250 in 5 cases (6%). The direct LCS examination was positive for all patients (100%). CD4 was

  • Designing and Implementing National Program of Health Electronic
           Surveillance Network (HESN); Infection Control Module in Saudi Arabia

    • Authors: Tabish Humayun; Abdulrahim M. Alkhamis, Ghada Mohammad Saleh, Mohammad Ali Al Qahtani, Moteb AlSaedi, Mervat M El Dalatony, Khalid Hamadan Alanezi
      Pages: 61 - 70
      Abstract: Surveillance of health care associated infections is the keystone of Infection Prevention and Control program in any health care setting. Without a reliable surveillance system, it is difficult to monitor the health care associated infections (device associated as well as non-device associated infections). The Infection Control Practitioners (ICPs) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia used to collect the Surveillance data manually almost more than a decade back, and then shifted to an electronic Surveillance System few years back, International Nosocomial Infection Control Consortium (INICC). As conventional manual surveillance requires resources and standardization of definitions. Finally, a national, web based, semi-automated system of Health Electronic Surveillance Network (HESN) was developed in the year 2012, but the Surveillance module of Health care associated infections was started in late 2016. Pilot study was done initially for the period of few months in five MOH Hospitals and later 96 MOH Hospitals were added gradually by the end of year 2019. The system is first of its kind as it covers certain public health modules including surveillance, infectious diseases, immunizations of newborns, needle stick injuries, blood and body fluid exposures and dialysis events surveillance. The data is entered by the Infection control department in HESN, followed by Regional Coordinators and supervised by the office of General Directorate of Infection Prevention and Control. Data validation is done by the internal and external validation teams and surprise audit visits to the hospitals. In addition to advantages of being quick, safe and online data management, there are certain limitations as the system is new for most of the ICPs. Therefore, with the passage of time, almost all the Infection control practitioners will adopt it well.
