A patient with intestinal amyloidosis with perforation was successfully treated by resection of almost the whole involved small intestine and is recuperating on hyperalimentation therapy. Because there were no signs of amyloiditic deposition in other parts of the body and no other cause of the amyloidosis, the case was considered to be selective localized(More)
A case is reported of angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy (AILD), in which a IgM Kappa monoclonal gammopathy developed. On the first admission the immunoblasts were shown to be T cells by surface-marker studies. Although the number of circulating T cells was normal, their functional capacities were markedly reduced. The patient was followed for two months at(More)
A leiomyoma of the small bowel produced laboratory features of hyperparathyroidism which disappeared promptly after tumour resection. Hypercalcaemia, hypophosphatemia, hyperchloremia, elevated chloride/phosphorus ratio, increased urinary cyclic AMP, and blood levels of immunoreactive parathormone were present. Electron microscopy showed dense round granules(More)
A case of inflammatory fibroid polyp of the sigmoid colon is presented. This is the eight case of this type of polyp in the colon and, to the best of our knowledge, the first one involving the sigmoid and producing intussusception. Symptomatology of the inflamed fibroid polyp in this part of the gut closely simulates gastrointestinal malignancy. The(More)
The effect of migration inhibitory factor (MIF) on macrophage microtubules was examined by functional, biochemical and morphological methods. It was found that: (1) the microtubule-stabilizing agent deuterium oxide (D2O) inhibits spontaneous macrophage migration from capillaries and enhances the migration blocking effect of MIF; (2) MIF does not modify the(More)
