We report on 15 children with proteinuria, at the nephrotic level in the majority of cases, who had no histologic glomerular alterations (eight cases), or focal and segmental glomerular scarring with (three cases) or without (four cases) mesangial proliferation. In all cases, immunofluorescence (IF) microscopy showed prominent mesangial C1q deposits ...

A two-site simultaneous immunoassay using monoclonal antibodies against human surfactant apoprotein (SAP) was used to measure SAP in middle ear effusions (MEEs). In 130 MEE samples from children with otitis media with effusion, SAP was detected in 54 samples (SAP-positive cases, 41.5%). In the remainder, the SAP concentration was below ...

Non-group A streptococci are members of the genus Streptococcus but do not share the notoriety of their cousin from group A. Most physicians, including otolaryngologists and head and neck surgeons, do not associate them with upper respiratory tract and head and neck infections. Some laboratories do not bother to report ...

The relevance and validity of ethnocultural factors in transference and countertransference reactions are proposed. Some of those prevalent in dyadic psychotherapy are described, focusing on intra-ethnic and inter-ethnic dyads.

The notions of 'early-onset' and 'prepubertal' anorexia nervosa are reviewed, with particular reference to the role of the pubertal process within the condition. A database of 650 female cases is utilized to identify a small sub-group (n = 30) who developed the condition before the menarche. Many clinical, familial, social ...

We describe a patient with severe alcoholic hepatitis, markedly elevated white blood cell count, and high fever. After review of the English literature, we discovered reports of other cases similar to our case. The striking feature in all of these cases was a high short-term mortality rate, despite predictions of ...

Forty cases with several forms of spinocerebellar degenerations were studied. The diagnosis was based on an appropriate clinical picture, radiological investigation and family history. There are multiple variants of spinocerebellar degeneration and classification of these diseases remains unsatisfactory and therefore controversial. We classified cases into three main groups. The numbers ...

Previous studies have found an inverse relation between alcohol use and clinical gallstone disease, suggestive of a protective effect of alcohol use. However, such an inverse relation may (at least partly) be explained by a reduction of alcohol use because of symptoms related to clinical gallstone disease (protopathic bias). We ...

The synthesis of an oligonucleotide functionalized to attach two different reporter groups at specific internucleotide linkages is described. To incorporate the amine specific reporter group the internucleotide linkage is modified to phosphoramidate (N-1-aminoalkyl) and for a thiol specific reporter group the internucleotide linkage is modified to a phosphorothioate diester. The ...

A patient with alcohol-sensitive spontaneous, action- and stimulus-sensitive generalized reflex myoclonus is reported. Gait was abnormal but could not be clearly classified as dystonic. No other neurological abnormality was present. The possible relationship between alcohol-sensitive myoclonic dystonia and this case is discussed. Reflex myoclonus may serve as an additional clinical ...

Recurrent heritable childhood myoglobinuria is a potentially fatal entity (mortality up to 35%) in which prompt diagnosis and treatment are critical. Sixty childhood cases have been reported between 1910 to 1988, most with undiagnosed etiologies. We have studied an additional 40 cases referred to CPMC (1980-1988), suggesting that this condition ...

We challenge the position that only the analysis of single patients can allow us to infer normal function from impaired performance. We claim that the focus on group vs. single case studies is unprofitable and that a more useful question is how best to form abstractions of relevance to cognitive ...

Fifty three multibacillary leprosy cases were treated with two regimens of MDT L1 consisting of Rifampicin, Dapsone and Ethionamide and L2 consisting of Rifampicin, Dapsone and clofazimine. The results were compared at regular intervals and at the end of the study (24 months). Clinical inactivity, bacteriological negativity, ENL reactions, upgrading ...

The interrelationships among alcohol screening measures, self-reported drinking and laboratory markers of alcohol consumption were analyzed in a nonalcoholic sample. The results confirmed high interrelatedness among the MAST and two shorter versions derived from that scale. These measures showed little relationship to the CAGE, self-reported drinking and biochemical markers. Self-reported ...

The incidence and severity (peak serum bilirubin concentration) of clinically detectable jaundice was determined retrospectively in 110 elution positive cases of ABO incompatibility. Neither the incidence nor the severity of jaundice in the study group differed significantly from a control group. In the individual case Coombs positivity and/or a strongly ...

A case of central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) in an alcoholic patient with severe electrolyte changes is presented. Data in the literature suggest that it is safe to correct severe symptomatic hyponatremia to a value of 125-130 mEq/1 in 24 h. At the present time acute severe hyponatremia carries a bad ...

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 ...

Miller F - - 1985
The under-reporting of alcohol use has been viewed as the consequence of alcoholic denial. Alcoholic denial has been conceptualized as an unconscious ego defense. In this paper the authors present data suggesting that the under-reporting of alcohol use may be, in certain cases, the result of the influence of the ...
