Enlarged parietal foramina are believed to be benign and familial and due to a variable degree of defective intramembranous ossification of the parietal bones. We report 2 patients with this condition in whom fetal and neonatal MR imaging studies illustrate the antenatal and perinatal evolution of this condition and the associated persistence of a falcine(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to describe tumour identification on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a 35-week fetus with familial retinoblastoma (RB) and report the use of prenatal ultrasound (US) and MRI screening in the management of fetuses at high risk of RB. METHOD This is a retrospective review of the prenatal course and immediate postnatal findings(More)
Inflammatory conditions of the aorta may present with non-specific clinical features, including unexplained fever. Indium-111 labelled leucocyte imaging may be performed in such patients to look for the presence of occult sepsis or to assess the activity of a known vasculitis. Of approximately 1100 patients to undergo leucocyte scintigraphy for these(More)
Ultrasound has become a routine investigation in the investigation of the painful hip in children. It has been recommended that all effusions demonstrated by sonography be drained. Based on the experience of 800 hip aspirations, the authors describe an approach to the demonstration and aspiration of hip effusions with some of the pitfalls that result in(More)
BACKGROUND Totally implantable vascular access devices (TIVADs) are accepted as a safe and effective method of facilitating long term intravenous therapy. We report our experience of the use of these devices in children with cystic fibrosis with a particular focus on the incidence and type of complications. METHODS The medical records of patients with(More)
This report describes 2 cases of congenital diaphragmatic hernia with associated congenital lung lesion which were diagnosed antenatally using ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We describe the antenatal imaging findings and the short-term postnatal outcome. Association of these fetal pathologies is rare and a challenging diagnosis. MRI(More)
A protocol for the management of irritable hip was assessed; this protocol avoids hospital admission while detecting all other serious causes of hip pain, in particular septic arthritis, at the earliest possible opportunity. Fifty children with painful hips were studied prospectively with immediate ultrasound guided aspiration and Gram stain of all hip(More)
Autosomal recessive omodysplasia (ARO), a rare congenital skeletal dysplasia, is characterized by micromelia and craniofacial anomalies. Upper and lower limbs are affected in contrast to the dominant form in which the lower limbs are normal. Radiographic features include shortening and distal tapering of the humerus and femur, proximal radioulnar diastasis,(More)
