Swine exposed to cold air have elevated serum values of total triiodothyronine (TT3) and free T3 (FT3). To characterize the mechanism of these increases, we measured in vivo kinetic parameters after a bolus intravenous injection of 125I-labeled T3 by use of both multicompartmental (MC) and noncompartmental (NC) methods and in vitro hepatic type I(More)
Cystinosis is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease that results in renal failure. CNS manifestations are rare. We report a 29-year man who presented with a cervical myelopathy due to cystinosis. Biopsy of the brain lesions demonstrated cystine crystal deposition and an intense perivascular with inflammatory vasculopathic changes. Symptomatic(More)
The most widely known hypersensitivity reaction of methyldopa, a drug commonly used in the treatment of hypertension, is seroconversion to a positive result of a direct Coombs' test that may lead to a hemolytic anemia. The authors report a case of an infrequently noted, but serious, hypersensitivity reaction to methyldopa, manifesting primarily as acute(More)
BACKGROUND A prospective audit of specialist registrars' (SRs') training in tympanomastoid surgery for chronic otitis media within the Anglia Regional Training Scheme is described. This audit recorded the surgical activity of the trainees and their contribution to operative procedures, and assessed the results of the procedures. This type of systematic(More)
The histological structure of the thyroid glands from 115 piglets that were stillborn or slaughtered at 0, 6, 12, 24, 48 or 72 h of age were examined. Thyroid follicle diameter decreased (p < 0.05) after birth and then increased (p < 0.05) through 72 h. Thyroid glands from stillborn piglets contained follicles whose diameters were similar to those oberved(More)
