It is a brain infection caused by a fungus named Cryptococcus neoformans. Also termed C. neoformans or C. gattii. Cryptococcus first affects the lungs and then grows towards the brain causing Cryptococcal Meningitis. It primarily targets the Central Nervous System (Spinal Cord and Brain). But it does not affect ordinarily healthy people. It is more prevalent in patients with lower immunity like HIV/AIDS. It is spread everywhere in the environment, but not harmful to people having ordinary to better immunity.

52-year-old female that presented with acute onset delirium and seizures. There is patchy ill-defined T2 FLAIR hyperintense signal involving the subcortical, deep, and periventricular white matter of the supratentorial compartment, worse in the frontal horn and periatrial regions. There is a more nodular region of T2 FLAIR hyperintense signal within the subcortical white matter of the posterolateral left temporal lobe and patchy T2 FLAIR hyperintense signal abnormality in the substance of the midbrain tegmentum extending into the tectal plate. There are no suspicious abnormalities on the diffusion-weighted images, and post contrast sequences demonstrate ill-defined enhancement along the perivascular spaces worse in the bilateral frontal regions. A differential of meningoencephalitis, demyelinating disease, and vasculitis was given. Lumbar puncture and CSF fluid analysis was performed demonstrating a cryptococcal meningitis. CNS cryptococcosis results from infection of the central nervous system the with the fungus cryptococcus neoformans. Disease is more commonly seen in immunocompromised individuals. Clinical presentation typically begins with meningitis or meningoencephalitis, headache, seizure or altered vision due to raised intracranial pressure. Common MR imaging features include enlarged perivascular spaces within the basal ganglia with a pseudocyst appearance. NMR303G For more, visit our website at http://ctisus.com

Intracranial cerebral abscess Epidemiology and pathogenesis Cerebral abscesses are focal suppurative intracranial infections that start as an area of focal cerebritis, eventually demarcating into discrete collections of encapsulated pus surrounded by a well-vascularized capsule. They progress through four classic stages: early cerebritis, late cerebritis, early capsular, and late capsular. In the later stage, there is a rim of granulation tissue surrounded by increasing angiogenic neovascularity, which causes increasing cerebral edema. The most common etiology is direct extension from the sinuses, eyes, and dental infections, followed by hematogenous seeding (more often multifocal due to endocarditis or chronic pulmonary infections) or rarely direct trauma (sometimes iatrogenic). Up to 25% to 35% of cases in children may have an unknown, cryptic source. Increased risk is associated with immunosuppression, congenital heart conditions, including patent foramen ovale and arteriovenous fistulas. Numerous different pathogens are associated, most commonly mixed species, including Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus and S. epidermidis, Actinomyces, HACEK bacteria, gram-negative species in infants, and group B streptococcus in nenonates. In immunocompromised patients, additional pathogens include toxoplasmosis, Nocardia, Candida, Listeria, Mycobacterium, and Aspergillus. The incidence is estimated at 0.3 to 0.9 per 100,000 with a 2-3:1 preponderance in males compared with females. Clinical presentation The classic triad, including headache (approximately 69%), fever (53%), and focal neurologic deficit (48%), is seen in only approximately 20% of cases, with symptoms occurring about eight days prior to diagnosis. Other neurological deficits include seizures (25%) and altered mental status (48%). The abrupt onset of meningeal signs with worsening headache and neurological status is associated with rupture of an abscess into the ventricular space causing ventriculitis, which is associated with high mortality. Imaging features Approximately 80% of brain abscesses are solitary, and they are most commonly seen in the frontal and temporal lobes. Early cerebritis is often invisible on CT but may demonstrate an area of poorly marginated subcortical hypodensity. Late cerebritis and early capsular stages will demonstrate irregular rim enhancement on contrast-enhanced CT and MRI. Contrast-enhanced CT and MRI in the late capsular stage will show a capsular ring that is T1 hyperintense and T1 hypointense, with a complete ring of enhancement with a central area of necrosis. In later stages, there will also be a large amount of surrounding vasogenic edema due to vascular permeability (seen as white-matter hypoattenuation on CT and high T2/FLAIR signal on MRI). On MRI, the central necrotic area is hypointense on T1 and hyperintense on T1 with restricted diffusion. Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) may show a low-intensity rim of increased susceptibility that mostly overlaps with the contrast-enhancing rim, sometimes with a double rim sign (two concentric rims inside and outside abscess cavity), distinguishing it from glioblastoma. In some cases, MRI spectroscopy and MR perfusion can be helpful for distinguishing an abscess from a high-grade glioma with a necrotic core. Relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV) is elevated in high-grade gliomas and reduced in abscesses, while elevated succinate peak is specific for an abscess. Treatment and prognosis Intracranial abscesses progress rapidly and lead to devastating and permanent neurological deficits. The mainstay treatment is with neurosurgical intervention to drain the collection, either by aspiration or craniotomy. This is combined with IV antibiotics, which is first broad and then tailored to the specific organisms involved. Given the high risk of seizures, seizure prophylaxis is recommended in all patients. In cases of abscesses secondary to septic emboli from cardiac infections, heart valve surgery may be necessary to treat persistent vegetations. References Bonfield CM, Sharma J, Dobson S.

Maningitis (hindi): its an infection can affects the human brain. Meningitis is an inflammation (swelling) of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord known as the meninges. This inflammation is usually caused by an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis is usually caused by bacteria or viruses, but can be a result of injury, cancer, or certain drugs. It is important to know the specific cause of meningitis because the treatment differs depending on the cause. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "must watch (funny) - A 2 year old brilliant child....." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbT-a1xuSKk -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Cryptococcosis is the disease caused by the fungus known as Cryptococcus. Cryptococcus is a type of fungus that is found in the soil, usually in association with bird droppings. The major species of Cryptococcus that causes illness in human is Cryptococcus neoformans, which is found worldwide. Another less common species that can also cause disease in humans is Cryptococcus gattii. Since 1999, C. gattii has also been found in regions of the Pacific Northwest, particularly in Vancouver Island in British Columbia, and Oregon and Washington in the United States.

Learning Objectives 1. To give information about the characteristics of the MRI signs of the CNS tuberculosis in Peruvian patients. 2. To understand the accuracy of the MRI signs in CNS tuberculosis. 3. To show MRI images of CNS tuberculosis simulating other pathologies. Abstract In Peru, tuberculosis is a major cause of morbidity in the group of young adults, 82% of TB cases reported in 2013 and 2014 primarily affected the lungs. 77% of cases were diagnosed with pulmonary TB smear positive and nearly 40% with smear with a high bacillary load (2-3 crosses). Almost 18% of cases of extra pulmonary tuberculosis and pleural location had the highest percentage (54%), lymph nodes (11.1%) and meningeal/nervous system (9%) was reported. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has been shown to be superior to CT in evaluating patients with suspected meningitis and its associated complications. Complications of meningitis include hydrocephalus, vasculitis, cranial nerve involvement, and associated multiple tuberculomas. Tuberculomas are among the most common intracranial mass lesions and the most common manifestation of parenchymal TB and less than 2 to 3 cm in size. Tuberculous abscess are generally larger. In tuberculous spondylodiscitis, MR imaging is currently the imaging modality of choice, given its superior ability in the detection of soft tissue and bone marrow changes. Finally, numerous conditions can mimic tuberculomas on conventional imaging. Other imaging techniques such as diffusion imaging, perfusion and MR spectroscopy may help in differentiating these conditions.

Read More: http://www.emaxhealth.com/1275/fungus-cryptococcus-gatti-threat-healthy-people.html Infection with C. gattii causes symptoms about two weeks or more after individuals or animals have been exposed to the airborne spores. Once the spores are inhaled, they embed themselves in the lungs, colonize, and then spread throughout the body. Symptoms include persistent cough, pneumonia, sharp chest pains, shortness of breath, fever, weight loss, headache, and nighttime sweats. Meningitis can also occur.

MY NAME IS JOHN SCOTT CONOVER, I MADE THIS VIDEO TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC OF WHAT YOU MAY BE SUBJECTED TO AS I WAS, TO AN UNSTERILE OPERATING ROOM AT FLORIDA HOSPITAL OF ORLANDO !! I have undergone 2 brain operations at Florida Hospital of Orlando between 2012 and 2017. In June 2012, Neurosurgeon Dr. Melvin Fields performed a botched brain operation on me. Approx. 4 months after, I returned to Florida Hospital of Orlando with a severe infection in my head. The incision site had broken down from the infection and pus, blood, and CSF fluid was oozing out of the incision. This has been an ongoing reoccurring issue for the last five years continuously. I have sought help many times at Florida Hospital of Orlando when the pus and CSF are oozing from the incision site. Each time I was admitted and administered antibiotics from the ICU and then sent home within 3-5 days. Approximately 7 months ago, I was readmitted with a severe infection at the incision site. I was admitted immediately. I was prepped for an operation the following morning. The goal was to eradicate the germ that was inside my head by removing the graft on my skull and the mesh. Hopefully. Approx 3 months after this botched life and death operation, I had returned to the ER with a severe infection at the incision site Again.. With my insistence, prior to administering antibiotics, the ER doctor at Florida Hospital of Orlando sent the specimen for culture to the lab. A day and a half later, the PA came into my room in the ICU and asked me how I was doing. I asked her what kind of infection did I have. She stated Lets see. As she looked at the computer she noticed that Dr. Fields had not ordered the specimen to be cultured as usual. So she herself ordered the labwork to be done. The following day I was released from the ICU and sent home with 28 tablets of Keflex in 750 mg. Approximately, three to five days later, my daughter went down to Florida Hospital of Orlando, and got all the test results from the records department. Upon receiving these records we were shocked to find out that I had tested positive for rare gram cocci, and I had no graft on the rear of my skull or a mesh protecting it. This infection was less than 1 millimeter from my brain, and it could have killed me instantly. To this day, I have never received a call from Florida Hospital of Orlando or the so-called neurosurgeons, that I was being treated by, to find out how I was feeling and to inform me that I had tested positive for rare gram cocci. I have sent eight emails over a period of 3 months, and two hand delivered letters to the administration, and to the C.E.O. of Florida Hospital of Orlando, and to the board members begging and pleading for someone from this administration to supersede in this matter and I have never been contacted except from their Risk Management Officer. This is extremely sad that this kind of medical treatment is being allowed in 2017. I released this video to educate the people of what kind of unsterile, unsanitary conditions that you may be subjected to while getting an operation at Florida Hospital of Orlando, while you are lying unconscious in their operating room at the hands of a sloppy, dirty Neurosurgeon that doesn't scrub up and assumes that the rules and regulations of the board of medicine doesn't apply to him. Every day I suffer from severe, debilitating headaches, dizziness, and nausea along with the occasional CSF and pus oozing from my right side of my head and my ear, and my face becoming swollen from the collection of CSF, while Florida Hospital of Orlando and Neurosurgeon Dr. Melvin Field refuse to acknowledge it. They blackballed me and have left me Abandoned with an infection inside my head that I will live with the rest of my life. - SCOTT PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THIS CATASTROPHIC ISSUE!!

13-year-old male with a gradually obtunded mental status and fevers of up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Numerous round lesions are demonstrated within the supratentorial compartment with T1-hypointense and FLAIR-hypointense central signal intensity. The lesions have a thin margin of T1-isointense signal, and are surrounded by vasogenic edema. There is prominent diffusion restriction within the central portions of the lesions with faint linear regions of signal loss in the walls of the lesions on the susceptibility weighted images. The post contrast images demonstrate peripheral enhancement. The findings are compatible with multiple brain abscesses. There are four distinct stages in the development or evolution of a brain abscess consisting of early cerebritis, late cerebritis, early capsule and late capsule formation. After biopsy, this patient grew a Streptococcus sp., but a primary site of infection was never determined. Had the patient not presented in a septic state, the differential would have included: metastatic disease, subacute infarction, demyelinating disease and radiation necrosis.
