(Fever in parenteral drug user)
6 results
  • The febrile parenteral drug user: a prospective study in 121 patients. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Med 1993; 94(3):274-80
  • Weisse AB, Heller DR, … Kapila R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Based on the high incidence of blood culture positivity and the sensitivity of echocardiography in detecting vegetations in IE, a simple algorithm has been developed for the initial diagnostic management of febrile PDUs admitted with the possible diagnosis of IE. HIV infection, with or without full-blown AIDS, does not appear to affect the incidence or outcome of IE among these patients. Current practices among PDUs may be effecting a decline in IE but not HIV infections.
