A review was performed of the computed tomograms (CTs) of 500 children which had been reported as showing widening of the supratentorial subarachnoid spaces with normal cerebral substance. On the basis of this a radiological diagnosis of cerebral atrophy had been made in all but five, who were said to ...

Potentiation of warfarin by trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) has been reported occasionally but not in the urologic literature. Three cases are presented in which significant bleeding developed when TMP-SMX was added for the patient already on warfarin anticoagulants. The mechanism of this interaction is uncertain but probably involves competitive protein binding by ...

This is a case report with postoperatively prolonged neuromuscular blockade of 17 hours duration suspected to be caused by trimetaphan. Inhibitory action of trimetaphan to true cholinesterase (human red cell cholinesterase) was estimated in vitro, and it is concluded that this action is too weak to cause neuromuscular disturbances by ...

Theoretical and technical problems in using Nocturnal Penile Tumescence (NPT) measurements for the differential diagnosis of impotence are discussed and possible solutions are offered: 1) The basic assumption that NPT measurements can distinguish psychogenic from organic impotence has never been demonstrated in patients shown to be psychogenically and organically impotent ...

Idiopathic analbuminemia was fortuitously detected in a 30-year-old Italian woman. No associated disease condition could be revealed in this patient, the only consistent finding being a slight tendency to develop ankle edema. Asthenia and a moderate hypotension were also recorded. Trace amounts (5.2 mg/100 ml) of serum albumin were determined ...

A case is described of a left-handed patient with a circumscribed right-sided posterior brain lesion, who presented with a neuro-psychological syndrome of Wernicke's aphasia, ideomotor and ideatory apraxia. The aphasia and ideomotor apraxia cleared within 10 days, while ideatory apraxia persisted. Ideatory apraxia therefore was not dependent on the language ...

Low tension glaucoma (LTG) is a condition consisting of typical gluacomatous disc and field changes, an open angle and pressures within the statisticaly normal range. The controversy surrounding low tension glaucoma pertains not only to the definition and characteristics of the entity itself, but to the fundamental questions it raises ...

Very few cases of boomslang (Dispholidus typus) envenomation have been described. A case report is presented, illustrating many pitfalls in diagnosis and treatment. Despite a fully established clinical picture of diffuse intravascular clotting (DIC), response to specific boomsland antivenom was immediate, even as late as 86 hours after the bite. ...

Since their widespread introduction in the early 1960s, IUD have been considered effective and safe. Early studies revealed the ability of the cavum uteri to regain bacteriologic sterility within 4 weeks of insertion. However, experience with long-term use indicates an enhanced risk of pelvic inflammatory disease, often of proven bacterial ...

Three cases of schistosomiasis in 2 Filipinos and one Chinese in Sabah are reported. Diagnosis was based on incidental histological findings of Schistosoma japonicum-like ova in the liver and rectal biopsies. As these 3 patients are immigrants to Sabah, it is assumed that they are imported cases, and that Sabah ...

Twenty cases of colorectal carcinoids are reviewed in this report. Among the South Indian Asiatic, the colorectal carcinoids are apparently more common than appendicular and small intestinal carcinoids. The data obtained in this survey and the experience in America, citing increased incidence of such carcinoids in Negroes, suggest that racial ...
Beasley A W - - 1979
The literature relating to accessory soleus muscles has been reviewed, and two further cases are here presented. The appearance of two cases in one hospital within a four-year period would suggest that the condition is, after all, not uncommon; prior awareness of it may on occasions permit an expectant approach ...

Several recent reports have indicated the possible association between pelvic infection caused by Actinomyces and the use of intrauterine contraceptive devices. Seven cases of infection or colonization of the female genital tract have been detected among women using intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUD's) at Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia, from March, ...

Left thalamic hemorrhage as a cause of aphasia has not been widely recognized. Large thalamic hemorrhages cause coma, making speech examination impossible; smaller thalamic hemorrhages were difficult to document until recent diagnostic advances. Nine cases of thalamic hemorrhage with aphasia have been described in the literature. This report presents four ...

Recommendations have been made recently that the energy output of present-day defibrillators be increased above the 400 wsec limit. These recommendations are based largely on experimental studies in animals. We report a case of a man weighing 190.1 kg (418.2 lb), successfully resuscitated with a single 400 wsec shock after ...

As a serendipitous by-product of polio virus research, a highly fatal amoebic meningoencephalitis was recognized in animals. The causative microorganisms, contaminants of the viral cultures, were identified as small soil amoebae. These organisms, previously considered non-pathogenic, are prevalent throughout the world. Based on animal studies, the original investigators suggested the ...

Metastatic medulloblastoma is a rare clinical phenomenon. Review of the literature and the authors' experience reveals that when it occurs, palliation may be achieved with a variety of single and combination chemotherapy programs. Two objective responses with vincristine-actinomycin-D-cyclophosphamide (VAC) and one each with adriamycin and methyl-CCNU are described.
Colwell J A - - 1977
In the present review, we have tried to briefly define the types of hypoglycemia which may be seen most frequently in medicine. Wherever possible, mechanisms and appropriate diagnostic tests have been described. Treatment of hypoglycemia has been purposely avoided, since therapy should be obvious once diagnosis is made and mechanisms ...
Wells M - - 1977
Four cases of Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia (WM) are described in which otoloaryngeal symptoms were present. Symptoms in WM are related to (a) bleeding diathesis and (b) hyperviscosity of the blood. The bleeding diathesis was manifested as epistaxis in 2 cases. In one case which came to postmortem, histological examination of the ...

Three cases of esophageal intramural pseudodiverticulosis (EIP) are described and the literature reviewed. We conclude that EIP is an inflammatory disease of unknown etiology characterized by dilatation of the esophageal submucosal glandular elements. The classic radiographic picture which is that of collar-button-shaped outpouchings projecting in a perpendicular fashion from the ...

Eosinophilic fasciitis is a recently described rheumatic disease, some 20 cases having been reported in abstract form. Previous descriptions have stressed the localized nature of skin involvement, the absence of visceral changes or Raynaud's phenomenon, an association with hypergammaglobulinaemia and eosinophilia, and a good response to corticosteroid therapy. The most ...

Some possible reasons for the reported failures of digital neurovascular island flaps to provide normal (or near normal) tactile sensibility are discussed. Some technical variations which may improve the results are proposed. An illustrative case is reported in which there was transfer of intact two-point discrimination.

Fourteen similar cases described previously in the literature are reviewed. Our cases are unique in that hearing was preserved after surgical removal of the disease in ...
Borden T A - - 1977
Two cases of vesicoureteral reflux into intact, orthotopic ureteroceles are described. A review of the literature failed to reveal any similar reports. Insufficient submucosal ureteral length was thought to be the cause in each of the cases. Both patients were satisfactorily managed with standard ureteroneocystostomy after resection of the ureterocele.
