The knowledge of ocular growth during fetal life, when compared with other fetal biometric parameters, could not only provide a better definition of malformation syndromes but could also give a better understanding of certain pathological processes in premature babies and in newborns. As the literature concerning prenatal ocular dimensions contains few(More)
In this geographically based study the findings on 158 abnormal fetuses, primarily diagnosed by routine antenatal ultrasound, are correlated with the results of the examinations subsequently carried out by a fetopathologist and a clinical geneticist. Ninety fetuses (57%) had a single malformation, 66 were polymalformed (42%) and 2 had no malformations. In(More)
A prospective registration of incident cancers in childhood in two south-east regions of France since 1 January 1984 allows us to collect pertinent data on 875 cases throughout a period of 8 years. World age-standardised overall incidence rate is 137.63 cases/million/year. It is close to that reported in other white European. North American and Oceanian(More)
In a previous study, we showed that the growth of the eye during fetal development compared with the other parameters of the fetus was above all connected to the head circumference, which appeared to be the most discriminant measurement. In a second study, we measured the growth of the orbit of the fetus in order to compare it with the growth of the globe(More)
BACKGROUND IgA nephropathy may occur in adults with alcoholic cirrhosis. It has also been reported in children with alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency. A case of IgA nephropathy associated with cirrhosis due to Wilson's disease is reported. CASE REPORT A 10 year-old girl, was admitted for cirrhosis. She had suffered from ascitis and hematuria since the age of(More)
The clinical features of seven children with myositis ossificans (circumscripta and progressiva) and radiographic signs of the disease are described. We recommend systematic radiological examination to seek other skeletal malformations for congenital hallux valgus in young children, for it may be the first sign of a myositis ossificans progressiva. The(More)
The idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (IHS) is extremely rare in childhood and relationships of this syndrome with myeloproliferative diseases are controversial. We reported the observation of a 7-year-old girl suffering from an IHS with myelofibrosis. A clonal cytogenetic abnormality, trisomy 8, was detected in the bone marrow cells of this child. This(More)
Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of mortality in renal transplant recipients. Plasma levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) are often elevated following renal transplantation, and the immunosuppressant cyclosporin A has been implicated as a predisposing factor for posttransplantation hyperlipidemia. Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is an(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE The aims were (1) to assess whether termination of pregnancy after prenatal screening by ultrasound affected the prevalence of congenital anomalies at birth, and (2) to examine the trend of this pattern over time. DESIGN This study deals with congenital anomalies, possibly detectable prenatally or at birth, which were classified as(More)
