Sudden unilateral hearing loss may result from etiologies affecting cochlea, eighth nerve, or more central auditory tracts. Two case studies are presented in which the measurement of otoacoustic emissions helped rule out outer hair cell cochlear pathology. In both cases, the final diagnosis was sudden unilateral hearing loss associated with ...

Four cases of endometrial extramedullary haemopoiesis are reported, all with associated haematological disease. The diagnoses of a myeloproliferative disorder and thalassaemia trait were made as a consequence of the histological observations and subsequent haematological investigations in two cases. The third case occurred in a patient with an established diagnosis of ...

We report a case of naevus mucinosus, a recently described condition. Clinically, the lesions presented as unilateral, multiple, firm, 3-5-mm-diameter, coalescent papules in a linear arrangement on the back of a 23-year-old man. Histologically, large amounts of acid mucopolysaccharides (proteoglycans) were demonstrated in the superficial dermis. As far as we ...

The finding of multiple lipomas, or lipomatosis, can be a marker for several clinical or familial syndromes. Familial multiple lipomatosis is a benign hereditary disorder of adipose regulation associated with hyperlipidemia. Multiple symmetric lipomatosis involves the local infiltration of adipose tissue of the neck, upper torso and mediastinum. This condition ...

We report two conjugal cases of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) occurring between 1977 and 1991 in southern France (Languedoc-Roussillon). Although conjugal ALS may occur by chance, the description of two cases in the same area points to a role of environmental or genetic factors in the etiology of the disease.

We report nine additional cases of new-onset multiple sclerosis (MS) among employees of an upstate New York manufacturing plant that uses zinc as a primary metal. These cases, identified during the decade 1980 to 1989, had clinical onset of the disease between 1979 and 1987. The new cases confirm the ...

We presented the case of a 26-year-old woman with a blastic, miliary form of osteosarcomatosis involving the axial skeleton, skull, and long bones to the elbow and knee joint regions who subsequently developed hypocalcemic tetany. Radiologically the lesions mimicked the spread of breast carcinoma, and because of the distribution of ...

The authors report the case of an 82 year old woman hospitalized for hypercalcemia associated with low serum phosphate. Multiple myeloma was first diagnosed. However, despite chemotherapy, hypercalcemia persisted and she was subsequently diagnosed as primary hyperparathyroidism; eucalcemic state was then obtained after parathyroidectomy. Fifteen similar cases are reported in ...

We report a 38-year-old nurse who developed amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) beginning in September 1990. In May 1991, her 38-year-old husband developed dysarthria, which progressed to typical ALS. This is the fourth report in the literature of conjugal ALS occurring outside of Guam. Although this event is most likely due ...

The presence of suprastomal granulomas after tracheotomy is a common occurrence. Under most circumstances, this never becomes clinically relevant. However, in the pediatric population, granulomas can on occasion cause partial or complete airway obstruction after decannulation. This report describes 2 cases of giant suprastomal granulomas that presented as laryngeal masses. ...

The cerebrospinal fluid total protein in 385 cases of sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis showed no relationship to survival, but it was related to survival time in 34 cases of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Infrequent and mild pleocytosis, and oligoclonal bands seemed to have no clinical significance in well established cases ...

The case is presented of a 1.5-year-old with the typical CT features of tuberous sclerosis and pachygyria, in combination. Tuberous sclerosis was evidenced by multiple subependymal calcifications, and pachygyria by the relevant CT appearances. Periventricular heterotopia and total callosal agenesis were associated findings. The findings in this patient convincingly suggest ...

In a study of 101 human pelves, 8 pelves (only males) were found with ossification in the area of the ligamentum sacrotuberale. Seven of these showed a characteristic and similar morphology and could be considered to be periosteal exostoses. The term "spur of the tuber ischiadicum" is proposed for this ...

We report 2 cases of persistent ureteral infolding in a four-month-old infant and an eight-year-old boy, both presenting with hydronephrosis. Initial diagnostic evaluation showed multiple pleats in the upper ureter. Endoscopic incision of the pleats relieved hydronephrosis. The concept of persistent ureteral infolding seems to apply to these cases.
