OBJECTIVE To assess trends in the susceptibility to beta-lactam agents and to fluoroquinolones of clinically relevant Enterobacteriaceae isolated over a 3-year period in 14 French hospital laboratories. METHODS During the second quarter of 1996, 1997 and 1998, 180 consecutive non-duplicate isolates of Enterobacteriaceae were collected in each center.(More)
One thousand six hundred and fifty clinically significant, consecutive and non redundant strains of staphylococci, including 863 Staphylococcus aureus and 787 coagulase negative staphylococci (CNS), were isolated between October 1999 and March 2000 in 35 French hospital laboratories. Susceptibilities were determined in each center by a standard diffusion(More)

Glomeruloid hemangioma is characterized by coiled capillary vessels contained within enlarged vascular spaces displaying an architecture that resembles renal glomeruli. The condition is strongly associated with POEMS syndrome (Polyneuropathy, Organomegaly, Endocrinopathy, Monoclonal gammopathy and Skin changes). The present paper reports on two cases of(More)

The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vitro activity of levofloxacin (LVX) in comparison to nalidixic acid (NAL), ofloxacin (OFX), norfloxacin (NOR), amoxicillin (AMX), cefixime (CFM), cotrimoxazole (SXT) and nitrofurantoin (FT), against 402 strains recently isolated from urine specimens in outpatient women suffering from lower urinary tract(More)
BACKGROUND Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is a distinctive peripheral T- lymphocytic malignancy associated with human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1). It may closely resemble other skin lymphomas, particularly mycosis fungoides (MF). CASE REPORT A 38-year-old woman presented some ellipsoid scaling patches lasting 18 months and developed a(More)
