Song repertoires may be a product of sexual selection and several studies have reported correlations of repertoire size and reproductive success in male songbirds. This hypothesis and the reported correlations, however, are not sufficient to explain the observation that most species have small song repertoire sizes (usually fewer than 10, often fewer than(More)
In our study population, neighbouring song sparrows typically share two or more of their 6–10 song types. In an earlier experiment, we found that established neighbours typically reply to playback of neighbour-shared song with a different song they share with that neighbour (‘repertoire matching’), rather than with the same song (‘type matching’) or with a(More)
Subepidermal calcified nodule is an uncommon, but specific subtype of idiopathic calcinosis. It presents as an asymptomatic, solitary, yellow-white or erythematous filiform tumor. The most common location is on the head and neck region of male children. Serum calcium and phosphorus levels are normal. Histopathologic examination reveals a focal papillary(More)
Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis of Gougerot and Carteaud (CRP) is a distinctive clinicopathologic entity, of unknown etiology, which shows some resemblance to pityriasis versicolor. A case of CRP that showed a significant therapeutic response to topical selenium sulfide is reported. In previously described cases, response to this agent and to other(More)
In order to study the factors related to complement activation, the complement activation products C3bc and TCC were measured in plasma at admittance and during the stay in the intensive care unit in 108 consecutive patients with multiple injuries. These patients were admitted to the surgical department during a 4-month period. Complement activation(More)
Fifty-one patients with lupus erythematosus were studied retrospectively. They were chosen on the basis of their antinuclear antibody (ANA) immunofluorescent pattern. Only those with the thready or the large speckle-like thready patterns were studied. Autoantibody profiles consisting of ANA, anti-single-stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (ssDNA) antibody, and(More)
