OBJECTIVES To propose an easy and reproducible sonographic screening test able to avoid late presentation of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). METHODS The pubo-femoral distance (PFD) cut-off point was determined on 980 infants who underwent ultrasonography of the hips in comparison with the final diagnosis, based on clinical, ultrasound data and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Gliomatosis cerebri (GC) is a rare neoplasm including a variety of tumors, with extremely variable evolution and heterogeneity of prognosis. It may appear either de novo or after a focal glioma, involve predominantly the white or the gray matter, and concern either pediatric or adult patients. We focused on primary GC involving(More)
BACKGROUND Localized hypertrophic neuropathy (LHN) of the sciatic nerve in children is a rare condition characterized by a painless neurological deficit in the sciatic nerve territory. OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the role of MRI using a specific protocol and describe the primary findings in LHN. MATERIALS AND METHODS Imaging in four children (age 2 years(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the contribution of whole-body post-mortem computed tomography (PMCT) in sudden unexpected death in infants and children. METHODS Forty-seven cases of sudden unexpected death in children investigated with radiographic skeletal survey, whole-body PMCT and autopsy were enrolled. For imaging interpretation, non-specific post-mortem(More)
The Ponseti method applied to treating idiopathic club foot consists in placing successive corrective casts, possibly an Achilles tendon tenotomy, then derotation braces, a method that has proven its efficacy. This study compared 221 cases of club foot treated with this method between 2002 and 2007 divided into two groups, based on whether or not Achilles(More)
Congenital vertical talus is a rare condition. In newborns, the diagnosis is evident in severe forms, but it can be difficult to confirm in mild ones. Non-ossified tarsal navicular cannot be visualized on standard roentgenograms until it is ossified. This work demonstrates that ultrasound is helpful in the early diagnosis of congenital vertical talus and in(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated Septal Agenesis (SA) is a rare disease with clinical outcomes (especially neurological outcomes) that are unknown. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of these children. METHODS We conducted a retrospective multicenter study of 17 children with an isolated SA or SA combined with a moderate ventricular(More)
Atypical functional lateralization and specialization for language have been proposed to account for developmental language disorders, yet results from functional neuroimaging studies are sparse and inconsistent. This functional magnetic resonance imaging study compared children with a specific subtype of specific language impairment affecting structural(More)
A cyst of Gartner's duct with a bicornuate, unicervical uterus and ipsilateral renal agenesis were seen in a 13-month-old girl. Left renal agenesis had been suggested by antenatal ultrasound findings. After birth, there were no symptoms but ultrasonography demonstrated a multicystic mass in the pelvis. Diagnosis was confirmed by histological study of the(More)
