  • Lab Med Online.
  • 2012 Apr;2(2):111-115.
The HACEK group of microorganisms is responsible for approximately 3-6% of endocarditis cases and is a major cause of culture-negative endocarditis. Here, we report a case of Haemophilus parainfluenzae infective...
A Case of Catheter-Related Bloodstream Infection by Tsukamurella inchonensis in a Pediatric Patient Receiving Home Intravenous Antibiotic Treatment

Seo Y, Chung HS, Lee Y, Kim J, Yong D, Jeong SH, Han SJ, Lee K

  • Lab Med Online.
  • 2012 Apr;2(2):105-110.
Bacteria belonging to the genus Tsukamurella are aerobic, gram-positive rods that are weakly acid-fast with no apparent branching. Infections of the Tsukamurella spp. are generally caused by the use of...
A Case of Acute Myeloid Leukemia Transformed from JAK2 V617F-Positive Chronic Neutrophilic Leukemia

Lee JH, Ha JS, Ryoo NH, Jeon DS, Kim JR

  • Lab Med Online.
  • 2012 Apr;2(2):101-104.
Chronic neutrophilic leukemia (CNL) is a rare myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) characterized by persistent peripheral blood neutorphilia, bone marrow hypercellularity of neutrophilic granulocyte proliferation and hepatosplenomegaly. Acquired somatic mutation, JAK2 V617F,...
Relationship of White-Matter Lesions and Lacunar Infarcts with Cardiovascular Risk Factors

Nah EH, Cho HI

  • Lab Med Online.
  • 2012 Apr;2(2):95-100.
BACKGROUND: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of white-matter lesions are different from those of lacunar infarcts; however, both these conditions are related to cardiovascular risk factors. This study was performed...
