Introduction Despite its effectiveness, the optimal use of the combination of insecticide treated nets (ITN) and intermittent preventive treatment during pregnancy with sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (TPIg-SP) remains low in malaria endemic areas. Therefore, we studied its variations and predictors in Guinea.Methods We conducted a secondary analysis of...

Background: Malaria control interventions have been scaled up, particularly those in pregnant women in Guinea. Despite that, coverage of key malaria preventive measure (MPM) indicators remains low. Therefore, it is vital to understand the reasons behind that, especially for the low coverage of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) and long-lasting insect...

The purpose of this study was to perform correlation of 5 cases and literature review. The study involved both children and adults. The major cause of retropharyngeal abscess was fish bone foreign body. Dysphagia associated with pain, fever and torticollis were the most common symptoms. Retropharyngeal abscess mainly occurred in the oropharyngeal a...

Background: In 2015, the laboratory at the Ebola treatment center in Coyah, Guinea, confirmed Ebola virus disease (EVD) in 286 patients. Cycle threshold (Ct) in the Ebola virus RT-PCR and 13 blood chemistry parameters were measured on admission and during hospitalization. Favipiravir treatment was offered to EVD patients on compassionate use basis...

We describe two Ebola virus (EBOV) RT-PCR discordant mother–child pairs. In the first, blood from the breastfeeding mother, recovering from EBOV infection, tested negative twice but her urine tested positive. Her child became infected by EBOV and died. In the second, the breastfed child remained EBOV-negative, although the mother's blood tested pos...
