Ultrasonography has been shown to be valuable in the detection of intussusception, but a question arises, as to just when this study should be performed. Should it be a general screening procedure or should it be utilized for specific cases only? Upon reviewing the literature, and the findings in 14 ...

Canine haemangiosarcoma was studied retrospectively in 31 cases recorded among 2,871 dogs presented for necropsy (1.08%). The German Shepherd breed was more frequently represented than other breeds. Affected dogs were older than 5 years (mean 9.1 years). Nineteen were males. Presenting signs often included episodic lethargy and weakness, with depression, ...

Agnathia-holoprosencephaly (A-H) is a developmental field complex involving a graded series of defects in the jaws, mouth, tongue, ears, eyes, and brain. Two general groups can be recognized: agnathia with holoprosencephaly (more severe) and agnathia without holoprosencephaly (less severe). This report describes three new cases of agnathia without holoprosencephaly and ...

Twenty-four human subjects were exposed to compressed air at simulated depths ranging from 45 ft seawater gauge (fsw) (2.36 ATA) to 75 fsw (3.27 ATA) for periods of time sufficient to allow saturation of most tissues with inert gas. From each of four depths (45, 55, 65 and 75 fsw), ...

A number of potentially serious congenital cardiac defects are associated with polydactyly. Of these, the best-known is that of Holt-Oram (Sanz 1973; Poznanski et al 1971, 1973) because of its surgical implications, described by Rainer (1972). Familial association has been reported by Yujnovsky (1974) with Polydactyly in three generations. It ...

A study was made of all 587 new patients attending an accident and emergency department in the East End of London during one week. Two hundred and twenty-six (39%) cases were not accidents or emergencies; of these, 67% were self-referrals who had not previously seen their general practitioner (GP) and ...

During routine extra-tympanic electrocochleographic (ECochG) recording we have observed that in many cases more cycles are seen in the cochlear microphonic (CM) recording than are present in the acoustic stimulus. We have termed this phenomenon CM 'ringing'. Ringing is present in 69% of our normal subjects and in 43% of ...

Usually equal noise exposure is considered to cause symmetrical hearing loss. In studying 1 461 audiometric records of claims for noise-induced hearing loss, it was found that 69 (4.7%) had a well-defined pattern of hearing loss in which only 2 kHz is asymmetrical by 20 dB or more. Audiograms of ...

We report a patient with Duchenne muscular dystrophy who developed malignant hyperpyrexia during general anaesthesia. During anaesthesia bradycardia was followed by ventricular fibrillation, on which ventricular flutter supervened and a body temperature rise of 0.6 degrees C for 15 minutes, myoglobinuria and elevation of CPK level were observed. The caffeine ...

A review of protothecosis in dogs revealed that this malady usually begins in the gastrointestinal tract and progresses to systemic involvement. Clinical signs generally include bloody diarrhea or blood-stained feces as well as blindness, ataxia, and polyuria. Histologically, myriads of protothecal organisms in different stages of development are found in ...

Report of a 2-year-old girl of Turkish origin with congenital generalized blister formation in herpetiform arrangement. Direct immunofluorescence ruled out juvenile dermatitis herpetiformis Duhring. Ultrastructural investigation of a fresh blister and clinically intact preblistering skin revealed intraepidermal blister formation via cytolysis of basal cells preceded by clumping of tonofilaments and ...

We studied the biochemical discrimination of primary hyperparathyroidism from other causes of hypercalcemia. This potentially serious disorder is readily remedied, and because recent work has suggested that even very mild cases in elderly people derive substantial benefit from surgery, the correct diagnosis is crucial. A discriminant function is derived that ...

This report will not recapitulate the parentage, birth history, and early progress of these 6 randomly ascertained XYY boys. Those facts are on record [1]. The boys are the same; the follow-up has remained as unobtrusive and as undisturbing to their parents as possible. The author's anxieties in this respect ...

Laryngeal papillomata in the adult, similar in every way to juvenile laryngeal papillomas, are not as rare as suggested in some literature. The age of onset is a continuum through childhood to late adult life. Fifty-two cases treated in five Toronto teaching hospitals between 1969 and 1979 are reviewed, and ...

Oversensing and recycling due to a pacemaker stimulus after-potentials are recognized complications of non-competitive pacing. Often masquerading as T-wave sensing, after-potential oversensing may result in slowing or acceleration of pacing rate. We report two cases of after-potential oversensing in patients with R-wave inhibited (VVI) programmable pulse generators. In both cases, ...

Case records provide a vast resource of information for clinical research, yet their value has been limited by several methodological problems. One of these has been the absence of standardized approaches for making diagnoses and other clinical judgments from case record data. This report describes the Case Record Rating Scale, ...

A series of 48 children with scaphocephaly has been reviewed. 44 had synostosis of the sagittal suture alone, and four had additional involvement of other sutures. Although six children showed significant developmental delay, with eventual mental retardation in five cases, it does not appear that this is caused by mechanical ...
Mercer H P - - 1981
A case of a near-fatal sea snake bite, believed to the the first such case in Australia, is presented. The two-year-old girl victim became unconscious and apnoeic soon after envenomation by an Astrotia stokesii, and required artificial ventilation for 22 hours. She regained consciousness 4 1/2 hours after the administration ...

A 7-year-old child was admitted to Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children in 1976 with symptoms and laboratory findings compatible with visceral larva migrans, a disease usually caused by Toxocara canis. This prompted a search for other cases seen at the hospital during the period 1952 through 1978. Only 18 cases ...

We report the case history of a 23-year-old Mexican-American female stigmatic whom we studied using psychophysiologic, psychologic, and laboratory measures. The stigmata have appeared often since 1971 and usually consist of bleeding through unbroken skin from her palms, feet, side, and head. The bleeding is painful and is usually (but ...
Thinakkal R - - 1980
Three related disorders in the same patient, namely bilateral primary intracranial cholesteatomas, an "empty sella" syndrome, and a cerebrospinal rhinorrhea are reported. No previous report of bilateral symmetrical cholesteatomas has been made, though single intracranial cholesteatomas have frequently been recorded in medical literature. The "empty sella" syndrome is generally considered ...

Two cases of non-progressive congenital hypotonia are described in siblings, male and female, aged 5 and 9 years, respectively, which morphologically correspond to myopathy with multicore or minicore. The study of these 2 cases is compared with those described in the literature, with special emphasis on the analysis of the ...
