Fetal and postnatal ontogenesis of the rat cochlea, from the 16th gestational day (16DG) until 3 months post partum, were studied using scanning electron microscopy with emphasis on the stereocilia during the earliest stages of development. The epithelium of the cochlear duct in 16DG rat consisted of plygonal cells topped with numerous microvilli and one(More)
The expression of fimbrin in the developing rat cochlea was analyzed using an immunohistochemical technique with fimbrin antibody. The cochlea displayed temporal and lateral-longitudinal gradients for fimbrin expression during development. Fimbrin immunoreactivity first appeared in the inner hair cell stereocilia of the basal turn on the first gestational(More)
This report describes the ontogenesis of cochlear stereocilia using scanning electron microscopy for analysis of cilia appearance, and fluorescence microscopy of phalloidin, a label for F-actin, to determine the maturation of the cilia framework. Surface and frozen-sectioned preparations of the otic capsule were obtained from several stages of rat pup(More)
UNLABELLED We describe an accidental ecstasy poisoning in a 10-month-old girl. CASE REPORT A 10-month-old infant suddenly exhibited behavior disorders with restlessness, hypertonia, and repetitive movements. She was immediately taken to the Emergency Department. Cardiovascular (tachycardia and hypertension) and neurological disorders (major agitation,(More)
UNLABELLED HNPP occurs rarely but not exceptionally during childhood. CASE REPORT José M., seven years old, presented an isolated radial nerve palsy of progressive onset with no other clinical feature. There was no family history of neurological disorder. The electromyogram (EMG) showed a 'mosaic-like' pattern of extended sensitive and motor alterations,(More)
A chronic microcytosis and hypochromia without any iron deficiency were observed in an 11-year-old boy of French Caucasian origin. The same hematological findings were also found for his mother. No abnormal hemoglobin (Hb) was detected using isoelectric focusing, cation exchange liquid chromatography and reversed phase liquid chromatography of the globin(More)
