OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to review and describe the MRI features of long-standing Morel-Lavallée lesions of the trochanteric region and proximal thigh in five patients with a history of trauma. CONCLUSION Long-standing Morel-Lavallée lesions of the trochanteric region and proximal thigh may present various MRI patterns that reflect their(More)
Characteristic radiographic and computed-tomographic (CT) features of seven cases of osseous lipoma are reported: six with medullary and one with parosteal locations. Radiological diagnosis of this lesion is discussed, with emphasis on potential pitfalls in interpretation of CT scans. Although the presence of fat-equivalent density on scans is highly(More)
The purpose of this study is to measure soluble CD14 (sCD14) levels in sera from newborn with sepsis, to compare it with other markers, and to study its evolution in Gram-negative and Gram-positive sepsis. Forty normal newborns were included (26 were full term and 14 were preterm infants), 20 babies had a positive blood culture (11 Gram-positive and 9(More)
A histomorphometric and clinico-pathologic analysis of 26 autopsy cases of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) showed that (1) the density of biliary microhamartomas (BMHs) and the stage of polycystic liver disease were strongly correlated, and (2) both were positively correlated with the stage of renal dysfunction and age at autopsy.

INTRODUCTION Diabetes is not only a risk factor for coronary artery disease but also influences its presentation and evolution. OBJECTIVES The objective of this work is to define the risk factors, clinical and angiographic characteristics, and evolution of acute coronary syndrome in a population of diabetic patients. METHODOLOGY We studied 521 patients(More)
Mucormycosis of the gastrointestinal tract is a rare and fatal infection of neonates and children. This report describes a case of disseminated mucormycosis originating in the gastrointestinal tract of a premature infant of 26 weeks gestational age. The antemortem impression was that of necrotizing enterocolitis, diagnosed at 15 days of age, followed by(More)
The aim of the work described herein was to study projection scenarios in order to find changes in the synoptic variability of the northwest Iberian Peninsula in the 21st century. To this end, we investigated the changes in the frequency of the different circulation types computed for the study area using three different models used in the IPCC 4(th)(More)
An analysis of the frequency of cyclones and surface wind velocity for the Euro-Atlantic sector is performed by means of an objective methodology. Monthly and seasonal trends of cyclones and wind speed magnitude are computed and trends between 1960 and 2000 evaluated. Results reveal a significant frequency decrease (increase) in the western Mediterranean(More)
