Co-infections when occur can pose substantial diagnostic and treatment challenges for clinicians. In this case report we describe a neonate with co infection of plasmodium vivax malaria with Cytomegalovirus and discuss whether it can be the result of reactivation of one by the other infection postnatally or if these infections can affect and facilitate the transplacental transmission of each other from the mother. © 2014, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

Isolated tuberculous liver abscess (TLA) without active pulmonary or miliary tuberculosis, or other clinical evidence of tuberculosis, is distinctly rare and only few cases have been reported in the literature. We report two cases of isolated TLA in immunocompetent children, treated successfully by percutaneous aspiration followed by systemic antituberculous drugs. © W. S. Maney & Son Ltd 2013. Source

Congenital malaria is a rare disease both in endemic and non-endemic areas. It is seldom suspected due to its rarity and the fact that its signs and symptoms may be similar to those with neonatal sepsis. Furthermore, clues such as a history of maternal travel to an endemic area during pregnancy or any malaria symptoms may not always be revealed. The situation is further complicated by subjective smear tests and an expensive rapid diagnostic test, especially in developing countries where affordability is an issue.We call attention to the need to consider the diagnosis of malaria in neonates who present with signs and symptoms often confused with sepsis, to enable a quick diagnosis and treatment in order to reduce mortality. © The Author(s) 2013.
