Opsporing van Kingella kingae-DNA bij osteo-articulaire infecties bij kinderen

Bij kinderen komen osteo-articulaire infecties (OAI) zoals osteomyelitis, septische artritis en spondylodiscitis relatief weinig voor. Gezien een OAI tot ernstige…

Respiratoire virologie – Wie zoekt, die vindt

Acute luchtweginfectie is het meest wijdverspreide type van acute infectie bij kinderen en volwassenen, en een significante oorzaak van ziekte bij immuungecompromitteerde patiënten. In 2002 waren respiratoire infecties verantwoordelijk voor 18% van de mortaliteit wereldwijd bij kinderen onder vijf jaar; diarree (15%) en malaria (11%) vormden de twee daaropvolgende belangrijkste oorzaken. Respiratoire infecties lokken niet enkel een toename van mortaliteit uit, maar veroorzaken eveneens een verhoogde morbiditeit in deze leeftijdsklasse.
