Craniopharyngiomas with a large posterior fossa extension beyond the level of the foramen magnum are very rare and usually removed in two stages. The objective of this paper is to report that such rare cases of giant cystic predominantly retrochiasmatic retroclival craniopharyngiomas can be completely excised by an anterior transpetrous approach in a single(More)
Penicillium marneffei (ATCC 24100) was first isolated from a naturally acquired human infection in the U.S.A. by DiSalvo et al. in 1973. In 1979, this isolate was studied by Pitt who reidentified it as Penicillium primulinum. This prompted us to examine the antigenic relationship between P. marneffei and P. primulinum by comparing their exoantigens. The(More)
A 12-year-old boy presented with primary Ewing's sarcoma of the occipital bone manifesting as intermittent high fever and local pain in the occipital region. Plain skull x-ray films disclosed an unclear lytic lesion in the occipital bone. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated the irregularly enhanced mass. The tumor was removed(More)
A 6-month-old female infant, with a birth weight of 2.74 kilograms, was born with multiple congenital abnormalities, including gastric and gastrointestinal defects. She was admitted to the hospital with hematemesis. The patient could not be fed orally, and parenteral nutrition was initiated through a central venous catheter. Following pyloroplasty, she(More)
An immunodiffusion (ID) test has been developed to diagnose infections caused byPenicillium marneffei. A 20 X concentrated culture-filtrate of six-week-old shake cultures (25 C) ofP. marneffei was employed as an antigen. This preparation was found to be better in quality than that from still cultures of the same age (30 C). Anti-P. marneffei rabbit sera(More)
Sixteen isolates belonging to Fusarium chlamydosporum (n = 4), Fusarium equiseti (n = 1), Fusarium moniliforme (n = 2), Fusarium oxysporum (n = 3), Fusarium proliferatum (n = 1), and Fusarium solani (n = 5) were tested against amphotericin B, 5-fluorocytosine, fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole, JAI-amphotericin B (water-soluble compound), hamycin and(More)
The mycelial (25°C) and yeast-like (37°C) forms of Penicillium marneffei clinical and type strains were investigated for their in vitro susceptibility to amphotericin B (AmB), 5-fluorocytosine (5-FC), fluconazole (FLU) and itraconazole (ITZ), using Bacto antibiotic medium 3, yeast-nitrogen, Sabouraud's dextrose (pH 5.7) and high resolution (pH 7.1) broth(More)
