BACKGROUND Two Bartter syndrome phenotypes have been described, and molecular analyses demonstrate mutations in 1 of 3 genes encoding ascending limb of Henle transporters. We report phenotypic observations in 5 African American children with Bartter syndrome in the context of a distinct genotype. METHODS Mutation analyses were performed in 5 unrelated(More)
Eleven anemic children and adolescents with a median age of 14 years (range six months-20 years) on chronic hemodialysis were treated with recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) intravenously three times a week for an average of 9.2 months. After eight weeks of therapy, hematocrit rose from 20.3 +/- 1.4% to 31.7 +/- 0.7% (0.20 +/- 0.01 to 0.31 +/- 0.007,(More)
We report on an infant in whom bilateral renal cysts were the only initial manifestation of tuberous sclerosis. We review the reported cases of infants with this association and emphasize that tuberous sclerosis can present in infancy as bilateral renal cystic disease. The role of the kidney biopsy in providing the correct diagnosis is discussed.
The introduction of transcranial magnetic stimulation has allowed the study of conduction in the proximal portions and central pathways of the cranial nerves. A study is made of cranial nerve XII with transcranial magnetic stimulation at two levels, cortical and cisternal, registering the motor evoked potential by means of surface electrodes in contact with(More)

INTRODUCTION The treatment of nasal valve dysfunction is very controversial and many otorhinolaryngologists do not always take surgery into consideration. The purpose of this paper is to present the author's surgical technique and the description of 13 patients on which it may work. MATERIAL AND METHOD Thirteen cases presenting with nasal obstruction(More)
Headaches and facial pain are common complaints. In many cases patients are referred to an otolaryngologist to determine if head pain is sinus related. In the absence of other nasal or sinus symptoms, some rhinogenic headaches can be overlooked or misdiagnosed. A complete history and thorough ENT examination, including nasal endoscopy, with or without(More)
Laryngeal carcinoma is a frequent neoplasm in Spain, constituting about 5.6% of all malignant tumors. The supraglottic location is more frequent than either glottic or subglottic sites. Prognostic factors were analyzed in a series of 74 supraglottic laryngeal carcinomas. Two statistical methods were used. Firstly, Cox regression, a multivariate analysis(More)
People infected with HIV have a greater risk of developing malignancies. The most frequent one is the Kaposi's sarcoma (KS). The second is the Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). We report six cases of NHL in association with HIV infection (NHL-HIV) of the head and neck. Three of them had extranodal location (2 oral lymphomas and one case affecting the maxillary(More)
