This plenary talk will be a case based discussion of two proven, serious viral infections in immune-competent patients as well as a fatal fungal infection in a foreign worker. The discussion for the viral infections will focus on the immune system response to viral infections versus the pathogenicity of the viruses themselves. The differential diagnosis and work up of infectious etiologies of transverse myelitis will be discussed. Finally, the latest data on the risk of primary varicella and H. Zoster in patients who received primary vaccination with the chicken pox vaccine will be reviewed. The case based discussion about the invasive fungal infection in a young foreign worker will include a discussion on the iatrogenic risk factors for fungal infections. There will also be a focused review on the changing epidemiology of fungal and yeast infections in relatively immune-competent patients as well as the optimal activity of the newer anti-fungal agents against the more unusual yeast and fungi that are more commonly being seen. In the era of newer anti-fungal agents it is important to know the nuances of the spectrum of activity as well as the various sites of penetration (CSF, bone, etc.) for these medications.
