The origin of the two linguistically distinct recurrent utterance types--real word recurrent utterances (RWRUs) and non-meaningful recurrent utterances (NMRUs) - is discussed. It is argued that the origins of RWRUs may have more to do with post-onset factors than with activities being pursued at the time of onset, and the ...

This paper describes a woman with pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism (PPHP) who had intractable lymphoedema and also abnormal dermatoglyphics. The findings were quite distinct from those in two previously reported cases of pseudohypoparathyroidism (PHP). Dermatoglyphics may prove useful in the diagnosis of PPHP but may also provide a clue to the factors which ...

We report a case of presumed autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura in a patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the neck. A review of the literature on the association of autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura and solid tumors is presented. Autoimmune-like thrombocytopenia should be considered when patients with head and neck carcinoma present with ...

Bullous myringitis is considered to be a self-limiting disease without complications. Clinical evidence has shown it to be frequently accompanied by sensorineural hearing loss, more often than it was thought to be. The case of a 20-year-old girl is presented in whom bullous myringitis was accompanied by transient sensorineural hearing ...

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP) is a rare, acute usually fatal disease of unknown cause. As the name indicates, it is typified by the abnormal rate of platelet consumption with the deposition of thrombi in many vessels. Approximately 300 cases of TTP have been described in the literature since the first ...

A sixty-five-year-old white man presented with sudden onset of painful, priapism. Review of pathologic specimens at the time of surgical decompression revealed massive amyloid infiltration. Purpura, organ enlargement, gastrointestinal bleeding, and congestive heart failure developed subsequently. Postmortem examination revealed widespread amyloidosis. To our knowledge this is the first report of ...
