We report an intensely pruritic cutaneous eruption that occurs in the third trimester of pregnancy. The clinical manifestations include erythematous urticarial papules and plaques that begin on the abdomen and spread to involve the thighs and occasionally the buttocks and arms. This dermatosis appears to be clinically distinct from previously ...

A case is presented in which pregnancy occurred after jejunoileal bypass for treatment of obesity. The pregnancy was complicated by coagulation defects apparently on the basis of liver damage secondary to the bypass. Pertinent literature is reviewed, and the conclusion is reached that although the majority of patients becoming pregnant ...

An epidemic of jaundice in pregnancy is described. The mortality during the first 2 years was 45%, but decreased as the epidemic waned. Biochemical, social and epidemiological investigations revealed that the cause was probably the hepatitis group A virus. No previous epidemics appear to have occurred in South Africa.
Shabot J M - - 1978
A case of a 26-year-old woman who presented at 38 weeks of gestation with severe hepatitis B complicated by disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and hypoglycemia is reported. The clinical features of the illness suggested acute fatty liver of pregnancy. Cesarean section was followed by resolution of the coagulopathy and the ...

Serum mitochondrial, nuclear and smooth-muscle antibodies were assayed by the immunofluorescence method in a series of 42 patients with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy and a control series of 15 normal pregnant subjects. None of the subjects examined had mitochondrial antibodies, and nuclear antibodies were only found in one patient with ...
Hill L M - - 1977
Three patients with serum hepatitis during pregnancy are described. The first patient was delivered of an infant in whom hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) was detected at 3 months of age; the second patient had a child who became HBsAg positive at 6 weeks of age; and the third patient's ...

The presentation, nonradiologic diagnostic evaluation, and course (including complications and outcome) of gastrointestinal disorders in pregnancy are not substantially different than for the nonpregnant patient. The possible exception is the higher mortality for pancreatitis when it occurs during pregnancy. With the exception of nausea/vomiting and hyperemesis gravidarum, there does not ...

Further investigation was carried out on the action patterns of two chondroitinase-AC [EC 4.2.2.5.] preparations obtained from Arthrobacter aurescens and Flavobacterium heparinum. To infer the action patterns of the chondroitinases, we proposed a new method for the calculation of the degree of multiple attack, based on the concept established by ...
Holzbach R T - - 1976
An integrative survey is given of three disease processes, in which recent progress of a fundamental nature has been made, primarily affecting the liver, either coincident with or caused by the gravid state. The three conditions considered include (1) recurrent cholestasis of pregnancy (RCP), (2) viral hepatitis coincident with pregnancy, ...
Adams W H - - 1976
A study of coagulation disorders due to hepatitis A infection occurring during pregnancy was undertaken to determine if the unique coagulation status produced by pregnancy (elevated clotting factors and decreased fibrinolytic activity) was responsible for the increased severity of hepatitis A infections reported for pregnant women from various parts of ...
de Pagter A G - - 1976
A family study was prompted by the presence of benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis in three members and probably in a fourth. Pruritus and/or jaundice occurred during pregnancy in nine members. Two additional members suffered from pruritus while using oral contraceptives. The literature on benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis since 1959 describes ...

Several congenital abnormalities result in dentofacial and craniofacial deformities in the middle third of the face. Each of these deformities presents unique problems with multiple coexisting anomalies of the entire dentofacial and craniofacial region. Those engaged in the habilitation of patients with congenital facial deformities must be cognizant of the ...
