Uveal Melanoma and/or Lymphoma? R/O Rickettsiales (Wolbachia)
I am increasingly becoming unnerved and alarmed by the striking correlations between Wolbachia-infected Aedes releases and life-threatening symptoms in young people. Even though the media isn't covering it, Culex spp. are Zika vectors. And in two of those Culex types - when they naturally acquired Wolbachia - became better vectors of West Nile virus and malaria. I highly suspect the same holds true for Zika. What every oncologist needs to know: Wolbachia can infect humans without any trace of the nematode that emits it. So, before removing eye balls or beginning any drastic form of treatment for lymphoma, you need to rule out (via a broad range PCR screen for infection by Rickettsiales), Wolbachia genes in the blood and tissues of these patients. We have strong antibiotics that can treat this infection.
