Splenic hemangioma is a very rare neoplasm in children. We report three cases of splenic hemangioma, two of solitary hemangioma and one of hemangiomatosis. Two patients had hematologic disorders related to hemangioma. Imaging findings of this entity are presented and discussed with emphasis on pathologic correlation.
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)
Twenty-two patients with metaphyseal primary malignant bone tumors (17 osteosarcomas, 5 Ewing's tumors) occurring before closure of the growth plate were examined with plain radiographs and MRI in order to determine the physeal or epiphyseal extent of the tumor. Results were correlated with the pathologic examination. Transphyseal spread was pathologically(More)
CD24 is a glycoprotein with an unusual structure consisting of a small protein core extensively glycosylated and linked to the outer surface of the plasma membrane by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) lipid anchor. Its murine homolog mCD24 is transiently expressed during the development and differentiation of the hematopoietic and neural cell lineages.(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)
Three children displaying hypotonia, cardiac involvement and defects of the mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes are reported. The first case showed severe neonatal hypotonia, failure to thrive, hepatomegaly, dilation of the right cardiac cavities, profound lactic acidosis and amino aciduria. The boy died at the age of 7 weeks. In the second case(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)
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)
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)
