Fifty-four Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains were isolated from Jura “Vin Jaune” velum and characterized by conventional physiological and molecular tests including ITS RFLP and sequence analysis, karyotyping and inter delta typing. ITS RFLP and sequence revealed a specific group of related strains different from the specific profile of Sherry flor yeast(More)
Twenty-four patients with clinically defined multiple sclerosis were prospectively studied with the aim of establishing the frequency of retinal periphlebitis. In three cases (12.5%) retinal periphlebitis was observed. None of the patients with multiple sclerosis and retinal periphlebitis presented a severe form or progressive course of the disease;(More)
Samples of two edible seaweeds, Palmaria palmata and Ulva rigida, were stored at 4 °C after harvesting, and their microbial flora were measured over a period of two weeks, using food control methods. The results showed a low level of mesophilic aerobes, fungi and yeasts throughout the storage period, whether the seaweeds were unwashed, or washed with(More)
A case of congenital atrioventricular block in a newborn whose mother presented with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is reported. Despite intensive care the child died a few hours after birth. Serial sections of the heart could be examined. Histology provided information on the appearance and distribution of the lesions. In particular, the sinus node was(More)
BACKGROUND Townes-Brocks syndrome (TBS) is a rare autosomal dominant entity mainly characterized by ano-rectal, ear and extremities abnormalities with variable clinical expression. CASE REPORTS The first case had ear and extremities, but not anorectal, abnormalities; a Pierre-Robin sequence with esophageal atresia was also observed. The second case had(More)
Two cases of cytomegalovirus retinitis in pediatric acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) are described. The first case was a 7-month-old infant who received an HIV-infected blood transfusion in 1983. The infant was treated with specific anti-cytomegalovirus immunoglobulin. The second case was an 8-year-old hemophiliac child who received HIV-infected(More)
A retrospective multicenter study was based on influential echocardiograms performed in 34 children, the majority (29/34) being under 2 years of age, and presenting with a primary form of acute congestive heart failure. Four died early. The average duration of serial echocardiographic monitoring was 25 months (9-72 months) in the others. During the acute(More)
The authors report a case of probable Haemophilus influenzae endocarditis in a 7 month-old infant with a bicuspid aortic valve. Precocity of the occurrence of endocarditis in such asymptomatic cardiac abnormality, scarcity of the suspected germ, and the observed mode of evolution are underlined. This case raises the problem of an endocardial involvement in(More)
The authors report two cases of infant encephalopathies with psychomotor retardation. The cerebrospinal fluid, the electroretinogram, the electromyogram and the motor conduction velocity are normal. The neuromuscular cutaneous conjunctival biopsies are normal. No biochemical abnormalities are found. The electroencephalogram presents continuous high voltage(More)
