Two infants had pneumococcal pneumonia and bacteremia, complicated by pneumatocele formation. The pneumatoceles appeared during the recovery phase and were indistinguishable from those associated with staphylococcal pneumonia. Complete resolution occurred in both patients. Pneumatoceles occur in pneumonias caused by varied agents; therefore, determination of the cause is imperative for appropriate ...

The author describes a male patient with obsessive homosexual pedophilic fantasies treated with psychotherapy and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA), a progestin with antiandrogen activity. Long-acting MPA was administered for a 2-month period and caused a prompt and drastic reduction in fantasies and in the anxiety and depression generated by them. MPA ...

At post mortems performed in cases of cot death, the cause of death has been established as due to a variety of pathological changes. In connection with the anamnesis data, inflammation in the region of the respiratory system, especially of the lungs, infections of the gastrointestinal tract, otitis media and ...

In fourteen infants, aged 9--60 days, with generalized oedema seen during a one year period the common denominator was the administration of dipyrone one to two days prior to the development of oedema. None of the other causes of oedema in early life could be incriminated in any of these ...

The case history of a 9 months old infant with hepatosplenomegaly, pancytopnaenia and disturbances of clotting and cellular immune reactivity is reported. The spleen was removed and showed striking erythrophagocytosis by proliferating histiocytes, typical of "familial erythrophagocytic reticulosis" (Farquhar). A graft-versus-host reaction is discussed as a possible underlying cause. The ...

Clinical, necropsy, bacteriologic, parasitologic, histopathologic, toxicologic and animal inoculation studies suggest that organochlorine (PBC, dieldrin and DDE) poisoning was an important factor in causing deaths of free-flying ring-billed gulls (Larus delawarensis) in southern Ontario in 1969 and 1973. The brains of gulls dying with clinical signs of neurologic involvement, and ...

This presents four new cases of pertussoid eosinophilic pneumonia in young infants. The 19 previously reported cases have been young infants with bilateral intersitial infiltrates and eosinophilia. The cause of this syndrome is unknown. Cultures from the four patients were negative; however, studies of immunoglobulin levels suggest that the disease ...

A case of diffuse and bilateral necrosis of the renal medulla in an infant aged 2-1/2 months is reported. The possible causes of such severe lesion are discussed. Gastroenteritis, hypotensive state and use of a nephrotoxic drug (gentamicin) are considered to be important pathogenetical factors acting simultaneously in this patient.

The frequency of uterine contractions was studied in 37 patients with severe abruptio placentae. They ranged from 3 to 16 per 10 minutes, with a mean of 7,86. When frequency of contraction was correlated with haematological and clinical data, a slight negative correlation was found between the frequency and haemoglobin ...

An infant born without toenails and without the middle and distal phalanges of the toes was otherwise normal, on clinical and radiological examination. This is the second case of this entity to be described. It is speculated that an environmental insult at the critical period of fetal toe development may ...

Mycoplasmas have been well established as pathogens of the bovine urogenital tract, and produce pathologic lesions resulting in infertility. Serologic examination of cattle with infertility problems with Mycoplasma bovigenitalium and Mycoplasma agalactiae subsp. bovis show a high incidence of positive reactors suggesting that mycoplasmas play an important role in bovine ...

Malnutrition interacting with infectious and parasitic diseases are the main causes of the appalling mortality in childhood in the tropics. The most important single safeguard against these in infancy is breast feeding and the trend now evident to abandon this is a disaster which demands urgent attention. Reasons for this ...

The causes of death were assessed in 140 infants and children with transposition of the great arteries studied clinically and post mortem. Half of the children were under one month old. Death occurred during the first year of life in 118 cases. Balloon atrial septostomy and/or cardiac surgery were performed ...

Daily activity subjects the human patella to forces often several times the individual's body weight. Healthy cartilage can adjust to these forces if they are not too excessive, concentrated, or repetitive. Such abnormal stresses most frequently occur with the disturbance of normal patellar mechanical function. Chondromalacia patellae is the result ...
Glass R T - - 1975
A case of multiple animal bite wounds is presented along with the techniques used to apprehend the culprits. The victim was a 13 month-old black female who had in excess of 80 puncture wounds. Initially the wounds were thought to be caused by a mechanical instrument but, after an autopsy, ...

Although conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia is not common in infants its presence carries serious implications in the majority of cases. It is therefore important that those responsible for the care of sick infants have a good understanding of the causes of cholestasis in infancy. Early diagnosis facilitates early treatment which is the ...

Causes of birth asphyxia and trauma were determined in the 208 most severely affected infants of 10,995 consecutive live births; 159 infants had cerebral disturbances, 39 had fractures and palsies, and 10 had fractures or palsies in addition to cerebral disturbances. Most frequent causes of birth asphyxia and trauma were: ...

Tearless crying in the young of early man, with an increased dependency period, would repeatedly have caused dehydration of the mucous membranes, and thus have rendered them vulnerable to the insults of the environment. Tears are bacteriostatic as well as moistening. The hypothesis is advanced that natural selection favored those ...

In this paper the author analyses the death-rates and causes of death for Korea during the period 1938-42 according to main groups of diseases, certain specific diseases, age-groups, and seasonal distribution. He finds that the mortality curves by age and by sex do not differ markedly from the typical curves. ...
