The purpose of this report is to compare subsequent pregnancy outcome and incidence of chronic hypertension and diabetes on follow-up in two groups of patients. Group 1 included 406 young women who had severe preeclampsia-eclampsia in their first pregnancies. Group 2 consisted of 409 young, well-matched women who remained normotensive during their first(More)
AIMS To assess the reliability of the detection of erythrophagocytic amoebic trophozoites in stool samples in the diagnosis of dysentery associated with invasive Entamoeba histolytica. METHODS Amoebic culture was carried out on single stool samples collected from patients from Mexico, Colombia, and Bangladesh. The stools had been examined by light(More)
The objective was to study the lipoprotein levels in primary hyperuricaemic patients and to analyse their renal management or urates in order to check for some potential influence of altered lipid levels on the renal excretion of urates by this type of patient. Overall 115 male individuals were studied in five groups, namely: 30 primary hyperuricaemic(More)
An invasive strain-specific monoclonal antibody against Entamoeba histolytica has been used in a capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of invasive E. histolytica fecal antigen in clinical specimens and for the diagnosis of amebic dysentery in patients from Bangladesh. The fecal antigen capture ELISA (FAC-ELISA) did not(More)
We report the third case in the literature of a hobnail haemangioma with cyclic changes throughout the menstrual cycle in a 36-year-old woman, suggesting a hormonal basis for the variations in the tumour. This patient was under oral contraceptive treatment due to ovarian endometriosis, making the clinical diagnosis difficult.
The substitution of capillary reflectance meter glucose values for plasma or serum glucose values would be practical and cost saving. A direct comparison was performed of simultaneous capillary reflectance meter and plasma glucose values in routine screening and oral glucose tolerance testing in a pregnant population. The use of capillary glucose in 50-g(More)
Digoxin-like immunoreactive substance(s) has been measured in serum during pregnancy. Because of its presence in pregnancy, investigators have suggested that digoxin-like immunoreactive substance may play an etiologic role in the development of preeclampsia. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the relationship between maternal digoxin-like(More)
Captopril is an inhibitor of angiotensin I converting enzyme and is used for treating intractable chronic hypertension. However, the use of captopril during pregnancy is limited because of reported fetal and neonatal side effects. This study explored the efficacy of sublingual captopril in postpartum management of severe preeclampsia. Captopril controlled(More)
