We treated the patient with direct hemoperfusion with a polymyxin B-immobilized fiber column incidentally; the PaO 2 /FIO 2 ratio improved following this therapy. Acid-fast bacilli, which were not seen in the sputum on admission, were detected in cultures from sputum, urine, bone marrow, liver biopsy, and blood samples, with a real-time polymerase chain reaction assay confirming tuberculosis. She was immediately transferred to a specialized tuberculosis

Peritoneal tuberculosis with elevated CA-125 mimicking ovarian cancer with carcinomatosis peritonei: Crucial CT findings 28337102 2018 11 13 1611-2156 15 2016 EXCLI journal EXCLI J Peritoneal tuberculosis with elevated CA-125 mimicking ovarian cancer with carcinomatosis peritonei: Crucial CT findings. 711-715 10.17179/excli2016-625 Preoperative diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis is often difficult because of confusion with ovarian cancer. A 56-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital (...) with abdominal fullness. Ascites, prominent bilateral ovaries, and elevated CA-125 were noted. Computed tomography showed thickened peritoneum and strandings in the mesentery and omentum. Exploratory laparotomy was performed under the provisional diagnosis of ovarian cancer, but the final diagnosis was peritoneal tuberculosis. Careful evaluation of bilateral fallopian tubes and ovaries and peritoneum are helpful for correct diagnosis. Chien Jerry Chin-Wei JC Department of Radiology, Wan Fang Hospital, Taipei

96. Tuberculosis in migrants moving from high-incidence to low-incidence countries: a population-based cohort study of 519 955 migrants screened before entry to England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Tuberculosis in migrants moving from high-incidence to low-incidence countries: a population-based cohort study of 519 955 migrants screened before entry to England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. BACKGROUND: Tuberculosis elimination in countries with a low incidence of the disease necessitates multiple interventions, including innovations in migrant screening. We examined a cohort of migrants screened for tuberculosis before entry to England, Wales, and Northern Ireland and tracked (...) the development of disease in this group after arrival. METHODS: As part of a pilot pre-entry screening programme for tuberculosis in 15 countries with a high incidence of the disease, the International Organization for Migration screened all applicants for UK visas aged 11 years or older who intended to stay for more than 6 months. Applicants underwent a chest radiograph, and any with results suggestive of tuberculosis underwent sputum testing and culture testing (when available). We tracked the development

99. Identification of populations at high risk of tuberculosis infection in rural China: a population-based, multicentre, prospective study.

Identification of populations at high risk of tuberculosis infection in rural China: a population-based, multicentre, prospective study. BACKGROUND: Acquisition and persistence of tuberculosis infection are important epidemiological measurements for evaluation of tuberculosis transmission in a community. However, prospective population data on the incidence of tuberculosis infection have been sparely reported in the global literature. METHODS: We conducted a population-based, multicentre (...) , prospective study to investigate the annual risk of tuberculosis infection and its persistence in rural populations in China from July 2013 to June 2015, using yearly tests with tuberculin skin test (TST) and an interferon-γ release assay (IGRA). FINDINGS: 15 907 eligible participants from four rural sites (Xiangtan, Hunan province; Zhongmu, Henan Province; Longxi, Gansu Province; Danyang, Jiangsu Province) who were identified as TST-negative (<10 mm) or IGRA-negative in a baseline survey were included
