Torulopsis glabrata is a yeast of low virulence and commensal within the female genitourinary tract. The first case of congenital infection with Torulopsis glabrata was reported in 1980. An additional example of perinatal Torulopsis infection which is associated with maternal sickle cell anemia is reported. The most common source of congenital fungus(More)
Two hundred and eighteen cases of hemorrhagic endovasculitis (HEV), a recently recognized abnormality of human placentas, were identified from placentas submitted to the Michigan Placental Tissue Registry over a 2.5-year period. HEV appears to focus on fetal placental blood vessels with resultant fragmentation and destruction of fetal RBCs, hemorrhage into(More)
This investigation was undertaken to determine whether or not histologic examination of the placenta contributed to a better understanding of the cause for an intrauterine fetal death. The placentas of stillborn fetuses delivered after the 20th gestational week were examined during a 4.5-year period (January 1979 to June 1983). Adequate information about(More)
This investigation was undertaken to determine whether histologic examination of the placenta contributed to a better understanding of the cause of intrauterine fetal growth retardation. Placentas were examined of 151 liveborn infants whose birthweights were in the lower 10th percentile for gestational age. One or more histologic aberrations were found in(More)
A unique vascular lesion has been identified in 32 placentas sent to the Michigan Placental Tissue Registry, East Lansing, Mich. Half of the associated infants are stillborn; 11 of 16 liveborn were in distress or small for gestational age. Placental vessels show thrombosis, endothelial, and medial hyperplasia and narrowing or obliteration of the lumen. A(More)
In a previous study a new capnodynamic method for estimation of effective pulmonary blood flow (COEPBF) presented a good trending ability but a poor agreement with a reference cardiac output (CO) measurement at high levels of PEEP. In this study we aimed at evaluating the agreement and trending ability of a modified COEPBF algorithm that uses expiratory(More)
