Scleritis is not a single clinical or pathologic entity. It has several distinct forms. A clinico-pathologic study of 41 cases of necrotizing scleritis suggests that these different histopathologic forms of disease may reflect different mechanisms of immunopathogenesis. These cases were divided into three main groups: (1) scleral inflammations associated with ...

Alcohol abuse and hypertension are two important health concerns for the general US population. A review of the literature indicates, however, that black Americans are at greater risk of experiencing primary and secondary health and behavioral problems associated with these two concerns. Empirical evidence exists suggesting a relationship between alcohol ...

While recent literature on individual and family therapy has increasingly focused on the nature and use of paradoxical styles of intervention, little has been published concerning the use of paradox in alcoholism counseling. Alcoholism represents a type of problem that can lend itself to the use of such interventions. This ...

The information provided by three examinations: [99mTc]heparin kinetics (KH), venous scintigraphy with [99mTc]fibrinogen (VSF) and plasmatic assay of beta-thromboglobulin (beta TG), are studied on 23 patients separated into two groups on the basis of phlebographic results. VSF which could provide to a certain extent the same kind of information as ...

The indications for endoscopic papillotomy are clearly defined. When only the normal risk presents, our working group favours an age limit of 50 years, below which the papilla should, as far as possible, be preserved. In the present case report, a possibility is described for effecting an endoscopic extraction of ...
