PFUO in a clinically well patient receiving voriconazole or posaconazole prophylaxis are more likely to have a non‐fungal aetiology, while the likelihood of breakthrough azole‐resistant Aspergillus infection or other azole‐resistant IFI is increased in those who are clinically unwell. , We recommend continuing voriconazole or posaconazole prophylaxis in clinically well patients and changing (...) of NCBRDT, , the combination of negative NCBRDT with a normal HRCT scan makes an IFI highly unlikely and a non‐fungal infection or a non‐infectious pathology more likely. In this clinical scenario, we recommend continuing L‐AMB or ABLC while determining the cause and following recommendations (3) and (4) in above. If no IFI is diagnosed, switch back to voriconazole or posaconazole; use the same dose if drug levels were therapeutic or adjust accordingly. 1.6. Any abnormalities on HRCT scan of thorax

-being following successful antiretroviral treatment has put sexual activity back on the agenda of PWHIV [11,12]. There is recognised synergy between HIV and STIs which may enhance transmission of both [13,14] and globally there is evidence that improved STI control reduces HIV spread [15], however there remains uncertainty regarding whether antiretroviral therapy can reduce sexual transmission of HIV [16]. Public health implications have been highlighted by several syphilis outbreaks which have (...) to foscarnet and cidofovir which do not depend upon TK but which inhibit viral DNA polymerase.

, buprenorphine, pethidine, dextropropoxyphene, methadone, tramadol* Opiates are analgesic drugs derived from the opium poppy. The term ‘opioids’ includes both opiates (based on naturally occurring compounds) and synthetic compounds that act on opiate receptors. Opioids are generally taken to produce a sense of wellbeing and to reduce the effects of stress and pain. Opioids are addictive and habit forming. Regular use quickly creates tolerance leading the user to seek increasingly larger doses of the drug (...) to achieve the same effect. Physical withdrawal effects, while very unpleasant, are rarely life-threatening. Opioids are frequently injected.

intracapsular fracture to be treated by internal ?xation with multiple screws or a sliding hip screw. Untreated, disruption to the capsular blood supply of the head of the femur by a displaced intracapsular fracture can lead to avascular necrosis of the bone, resulting in a painful hip of limited function. Therefore, surgical treatment involves hemiarthroplasty; even then, intracapsular fracture is associated with longer-term arthritis, and increasingly, total hip arthroplasty is preferred for younger (...) patients. Compared to uncemented arthroplasty, cemented arthroplasty improves hip function and is associated with lower residual pain postoperatively. Figure 2 Common sites of proximal femoral fractures.
