Aneurysms of the hepatic artery are rare and frequently diagnosed only at autopsy. First described by Wilson over 250 years ago, less than 400 cases have been reported in the literature (1,2). Dissection of these aneurysms is documented even less frequently, with only 11 cases reported in a review by ...

To keep abreast of the expanding literature on parasitology is virtually a such full-time pursuit of source literature becomes impossible with other commitments, encouraging recourse to secondary sources such as abstracting journals, Current Contents, and even Parasitology Today. Another approach - increasingly used since its faltering introduction in the 1970s- ...

We present a case of cerebral giant serpentine aneurysm (GSA) and propose a definition of GSA. Our literature review disclosed only 16 cases, including our own, that fit our criteria. GSAs belong to the subgroup of giant aneurysms, but are distinct from giant saccular and fusiform aneurysms. We discuss their ...

The controversial history of functional hemianopsia is reviewed from Briquet's 1859 monograph on 430 cases of hysteria, through the 19th century works of Charcot, Freud, and Janet, and the observations of Fox and Wilbrand and Saenger in the early 20th century. More recently, concepts of this entity have been clarified ...

Current classifications of mitochondrial cytopathies neglect rigorous assessment of the literature which consists often of single case reports. In addition no attempt is made by many workers to distinguish between primary and secondary respiratory chain defects. Current biochemical classifications also fail to take into account the considerable number of patients ...

We report an association between giardiasis and chronic urticaria and review the few previous cases in the literature. An unusual aspect of our case was the intensification of the urticarial response with antiprotozoal chemotherapy. We discuss the clinical features in terms of the limited current knowledge concerning immunologic mechanisms in ...

A historical review of the downer cow literature is presented in order to provide a background for understanding current research. Initially thought to be an entity separate from parturient paresis, the condition has eventually come to be regarded as a complication of parturient paresis. Since many other factors also contribute ...

Current theories of cough have been reviewed and related to the pathophysiology of bronchial asthma. The cough reflex arc and its association with the phenomenon of bronchial hyperreactivity have been stressed. A review of the recent literature suggests that bronchodilator therapy will modify this reflex and eliminate cough in most ...

A case of multiple intracranial aneurysms associated with unilateral moyamoya vessels is reported. The authors have reviewed the age, sex, initial symptoms, site of aneurysm, and operative indication in similar cases reported in the literature. It was found that aneurysms associated with moyamoya disease were frequently located in the vertebrobasilar ...

Since the clinician confronting a case of giardiasis may find the current literature confusing and weighted towards rare immunoglobulin deficiency syndromes, a classification is proposed to answer questions pertinent to understanding and managing this infection. Current thinking of giardiasis must involve the realization that (1) asymptomatic carriers exist; (2) that ...
