Low levels of alpha 1-antitrypsin can predispose affected infants to develop a wide spectrum of liver diseases. Heterozygous PiMZ carriers can be affected by a subclinical liver involvement in the first six months of life. The liver damage appears to be mediated by the activity of toxic oxygen waste products ...

A 32-year-old man with azoospermia is presented. Transperineal echographically guided vesiculography of the vas deferens showed absence of the ejaculatory duct and presence of a cystic müllerian duct in which both enlarged seminal vesicles joined. Transurethrally, by means of a contact tip over the verumontanum a new channel was created ...
Glassman M S - - 1991
A 4-week-old infant presenting with neonatal cholestasis was found to have congenital toxoplasmosis and biliary atresia. This is the first patient in which their coincidence is reported. Because biliary atresia can coexist with either congenital infection or inborn errors of metabolism, evaluation for an obstructive etiology of jaundice in infants ...
Davenport M - - 1991
Spontaneous perforation of the bile duct is a rare but well documented condition of infants. Six infants are described, five presenting within 2 months of birth without apparent antecedent factors and one associated with an 'acquired' type I biliary atresia at 8 months. All infants underwent definitive surgery, which included ...
Guelrud M - - 1991
This study assessed the usefulness of ERCP in the diagnosis of biliary atresia. We evaluated 57 infants with prolonged cholestasis with abdominal ultrasound, liver biopsy, and ERCP. Using clinical observations alone, 22 infants were thought to have biliary atresia; whereas 35 children were thought to have neonatal hepatitis. The ERCP ...

In plasma, glucocorticoids are transported by corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG), which is synthesized primarily in the liver. Plasma levels of maternal and fetal CBG fluctuate during gestation, and this may be due to changes in the biosynthesis and/or clearance of the protein. We have, therefore, studied the ontogeny of CBG biosynthesis ...

Infantile hepatic haemangiomas are benign tumours which tend to regress in late infancy. We describe five infants with hepatic haemangioma, three of whom developed congestive cardiac failure. Technetium-99m labelled red blood cell scan was useful in the diagnosis and follow-up of the lesion. The three symptomatic infants were treated with ...
Wilkinson M L - - 1991
The difficulty of distinguishing surgically correctable causes of conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia in infants from other causes means that some infants may undergo laparotomy and intraoperative cholangiography unnecessarily, and others may be referred for surgery too late. In an attempt to improve the diagnostic accuracy in infants with conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia when standard ...
