Staphylococcal entero-toxins G and I induce enterocolitis by a combination of direct enterocyte cytopathy
mediated by epidermal cell differentiation inhibitor toxins (disrupting the epithelial barrier) and enterotoxin superantigen-induced mucosal T-cell activation (8).
Kearns-Sayre syndrome (KSS) is a rare sporadic mitochondrial cytopathy
caused by a single large-scale mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) deletion.
Familiar histologic features of polyoma viral cytopathy
include epithelial intranuclear inclusions with a glassy to granular texture and basophilic to pale staining, occasionally with a halo, but without cytoplasmic inclusions (Figure 4, B).
There was no evidence of neoplasia, viral cytopathy
, granulomata or vasoformative proliferation.
We present the case of a 58-year-old man admitted in the Cardiology Department of Erasme Hospital of Brussels, for an Electrophysiology study asked by his General practitioner in the context of a past medical history evident for a mitochondrial cytopathy
and subsequent to arrhythmic symptomatology, revealed as unconfortable palpitations, and to disclosure of Holter bursts of supraventricular tachycardia.
Lipoic (thioctic) acid increases brain energy availability and skeletal muscle performance as shown by in vivo 31P-MRS in a patient with mitochondrial cytopathy
Mollie Kitson, nine, of St Fagans, who suffers with mitrochondrial cytopathy
, and Sophie Lewis, 14, of Leckwith, were accompanied by their families for a trip to the centre, where they got a look behind the scenes.
Typically, diagnosing mitochondrial dysfunction and mitochondrial cytopathy
is difficult due to the considerable variation in clinical presentation.
Increases suspicion for mitochondrial cytopathy
Plasma amino acid 1 ml heparin blood, on Confirms MSUD.
Metabolic disorders seen were mitochondrial cytopathy
, one each case of phenylketonuria, congenital lactic acidosis, 3-hydroxy butyric aciduria, 3-methyl glutaconic aciduria, and glutaric aciduria.
Bilateral zonular cataract associated with the mitochondrial cytopathy
of Pearson syndrome.
Enzyme analysis of individual OXPHOS complexes in skeletal muscle biopsy remains the mainstay of the diagnostic process for patients suspected of mitochondrial cytopathy
