A message to our visitors

A year has passed since the end of the SARS outbreak in Hong Kong and it appears that we (the world community in general) have been spared of a massive recurrence of this infection this year. Nonetheless, research on this disease is on-going and we would like to congratulate all who have contributed to furthering our knowledge of this disease. The convalescent period of this disease has not been uneventful. Complications of the disease such as Lung fibrosis resulting in limitations to respiratory function, post-traumatic stress disorder like psychological trauma, side-effects of corticosteroid therapy (adrenal insufficiency and osteonecrosis) continue to surface. We have included some of the relevant images and references with this update. With the help of many co-workers from Hong Kong and other countries, we are pleased to announce that we have compiled a book documenting our collective knowledge and experience on SARS. This book is titled "Imaging in SARS", published by Cambridge University Press (

Ovine Progressive Pneumonia in Sheep
Cynthia B. Wolf
Ovine progressive pneumonia is a viral disease of sheep in North America. Common synonyms for this disease are progressive pneumonia and OPP. The OPP virus closely resembles Maedi-Visna, which is a similar slow virus (retrovirus) found in other parts of the world. The OPP virus can cause disease with any of the following signs: severe and progressive weight loss, labored breathing or pneumonia, paralysis, swollen joints associated with lameness, and palpably hard, unproductive udders. However, most infected sheep never show clinical signs of disease. Once a sheep is infected with the virus, that animal stays infected for its lifetime and serves as a carrier even in the presence of high levels of circulating antibodies. Unlike some viral diseases, the presence of antibodies is not indicative of immunity.

Pneumonia June 2001 WHAT IS PNEUMONIA? Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lung caused by infection with bacteria, viruses, and other organisms. Pneumonia is usually triggered when a patient's defense system is weakened, most often by a simple viral upper respiratory tract infection or a case of influenza. Such infections or other triggers do not cause pneumonia directly but they alter the mucous blanket, thus encouraging bacterial growth. Other factors can also make specific people susceptible to bacterial growth and pneumonia. Defining Pneumonia by Locations in the Lung Pneumonia is sometimes defined in one of two ways according to its distribution in the lung:
  • Lobar Pneumonia (occurs in one lobe of the lung).
  • Bronchopneumonia (tends to be patchy).
[For a description of the lung , see Box The Lungs. Defining Pneumonia by Origin of Infection Pneumonia is often classified into two categories that may help predict the organisms that are the most likely culprits.
  • Community-acquired (pneumonia contracted outside the hospital). Pneumonia in this setting often follows a viral respiratory infection. It affects nearly 4 million adults each year. It is likely to be caused by

Parents Infections
Pneumonia is a general term that refers to an infection of the lungs, which can be caused by a variety of microorganisms , including viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Often pneumonia begins after an upper respiratory tract infection (an infection of the nose and throat). When this happens, symptoms of pneumonia begin after 2 or 3 days of a cold or sore throat. Signs and Symptoms
Symptoms of pneumonia vary, depending on the age of the child and the cause of the pneumonia. Some common symptoms include:
  • fever
  • chills
  • cough
  • unusually rapid breathing
  • breathing with grunting or wheezing sounds
  • labored breathing that makes a child's rib muscles retract (when muscles under the rib cage or between ribs draw inward with each breath)
  • vomiting
  • chest pain
  • abdominal pain
  • decreased activity
  • loss of appetite (in older children) or poor feeding (in infants)
  • in extreme cases, bluish or gray color of the lips and fingernails
Sometimes a child's only symptom is rapid breathing. Sometimes when the pneumonia is in the lower part of the lungs near the abdomen, there may be no breathing problems at all, but there may be fever and abdominal pain or vomiting.

Teens Infections
Have you ever watched a movie or TV show where one of the characters had pneumonia? If you have, you may associate pneumonia with the melodrama of a soap opera: prolonged hospital stays, oxygen tents, and family members whispering in bedside huddles. It's true that pneumonia can be serious. But more often pneumonia is an infection that can be treated easily - without a hospital stay. What Is Pneumonia?
Pneumonia (pronounced: noo- mo -nyuh) is inflammation of part of the lung. Inflammation is the immune system's response to a foreign invader or injury, often due to infection with germs , such as bacteria or viruses. When a person has pneumonia, lung tissue can fill with pus and other fluid, which makes it difficult for oxygen in the lung's air sacs to reach the bloodstream. With pneumonia, a person may have difficulty breathing and have a cough and fever. Sometimes a person may have abdominal pain and vomiting, too. Pneumonia is most commonly caused by viruses, such as the influenza virus ( flu ) and adenovirus. Other viruses, such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), are common causes of pneumonia in young children and infants. Bacteria such as
