As someone who tested positive for a skin test (which I've been told are notoriously inaccurate) when I was young, all I can say is: thanks, jerk.

Researchers identify new leprosy bacterium
(Public Health)

M. D. Anderson scientists use genetic fingerprint to nail ‘killing organism’

This release is available in Spanish.

HOUSTON - A new species of bacterium that causes leprosy has been identified through intensive genetic analysis of a pair of lethal infections, a research team reports in the December issue of the American Journal of Clinical Pathology.

All cases of leprosy, an ancient disease that still maims and kills in the developing world, previously had been thought to be caused by a single species of bacterium, said lead author Xiang-Yang Han, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in Laboratory Medicine at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

“We have identified a second species of leprosy mycobacterium, and in identifying this killing organism we’ve better defined the disease that it causes, diffuse lepromatous leprosy (DLL).” Han said. DLL occurs mainly in Mexico and the Caribbean.

There are hundreds of thousands of new cases of leprosy worldwide each year, but the disease is rare in the United States, with 100-200 new cases annually, mostly among immigrants. Leprosy initially attacks skin and nerve cells.

R. Geetha Nair, M.D., a physician with Maricopa Integrated Health System in Phoenix, contacted Han in 2007 for help confirming a possible leprosy diagnosis in a patient who died that February.

The patient, a 53-year-old man originally from Mexico, was admitted that month for treatment of extensive leg wounds. While undergoing antibiotic treatment and additional diagnostic testing the next day, he was stricken with high fever and shock. He died after 10 days in intensive care.

Analysis of autopsied tissue at the Phoenix hospital suggested a diagnosis of diffuse lepromatous leprosy, a form first described in Mexico in 1852. Han said DLL uniquely attacks a patient’s skin vasculature, blocking or impeding blood flow. This leads to extensive skin death at late stage and may cause secondary infection and fatal shock. The DLL bacterium had never been studied.

Many more diseases to come.

http://www.minutemanhq.com/hq/article.php?sid=858

When I worked in trauma/ICU in Orange County, CA, we had a bizarre case of a woman who was a Mexican illegal who was seizing due to an abscess in her brain. They did surgery and found a worm. That was in 1986. We couldn't find records of similar cases in the U.S. at that time. I guess things have changed.

Beware,this is a little graphic for some.......

This has been my main reason to be anti-ILLEGAL immigrant. They bring diseases into this Country that we eradicated years ago and have no medicines for.

The only way to combat illegal immigration is to send illegal aliens with a life-threatening disease to Nancy Pelosi’s and Barney Franks’ and Harry Reid’s and Chris Dodd’s offices in DC. Include a card from the illegal alien which states “Just doing what US Citizens refuse to do . . . infect Congress.”
