BACKGROUND   Early onset of allergic rhinitis (AR) is poorly described, and rhinitis symptoms are often attributed to infections. This study analyses the relations between AR-like symptoms and atopy in infancy in the PARIS (Pollution and Asthma Risk: an Infant Study) birth cohort. METHODS   Data on AR-like symptoms (runny nose, blocked nose, sneezing(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were (1) to evaluate the prevalence of relational withdrawal behaviour in infants aged 14-18 months attending a public health centre in Paris, (2) to check some identified risk factors for relational withdrawal behaviour in this population. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted in infants aged 14-18 months(More)
UNLABELLED OBJECTIVES; Patients with extrathoracic synchronous solitary metastasis and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are rare. The effectiveness of both tumour sites resection is difficult to evaluate because of the high variability among clinical studies. We reviewed our experience regarding the management and prognosis of these patients. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE Malignant cells in the pleural fluid or pleural metastases are now classified stage IV in lung cancer and alter the treatment. Our purpose was to question the role of surgery in such patients. METHODS The clinical records of 4668 patients, who underwent lung cancer surgery, were reviewed. In some, an undiagnosed pleural malignant disease (M1a)(More)
OBJECTIVE Pulmonary sequestration (PS) is an uncommon congenital disease. Symptoms when present are usually secondary to pyogenic infection. Our objective was to draw attention on superimposed fungal infection. METHODS During the last 20 years, we operated upon 19 intralobar PS. Four of six patients operated during the last decade proved to have(More)
OBJECTIVES We examined whether the changes in clinical practice with time correlated with the changes in the 90-day mortality following pneumonectomy. METHODS The clinical records of consecutive patients undergoing pneumonectomy in two French centres from 1980 to 2009 were prospectively collected. The 90-day postoperative course was retrospectively(More)
OBJECTIVES Nowadays, early-stage lung cancers are more frequently encountered. Selective lymph node (LN) dissection based on lobe-specific lymphatic pathway has been proposed. Our aim was to study nodal involvement according to tumour location. METHODS We reviewed 1779 lobectomized patients and analysed their pathological characteristics according to(More)
OBJECTIVES The extension of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) to supraclavicular (SC) and contralateral (CL) mediastinal lymph nodes is termed N3 and usually forbids surgical resection. However, scarce surgical series have reported encouraging results, and we sought to analyse our experience with this particular subgroup of patients. METHODS We(More)
BACKGROUND Induction chemotherapy (ICT) is supposed to reduce the risk of micrometastatic progression and improve resectability of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, best indications for ICT strategy remain unclear in published meta-analyses. Based on this observation, an evaluation of daily practice is of importance. Therefore, we reviewed(More)

OBJECTIVES Lung cancer invading beyond the interlobar pleura, classified as T2a in the new TNM, is a rare entity with a poor outcome. Our purpose was a better understanding of the mechanisms of this particular behaviour and its prognostic value. METHODS Patients who underwent surgery between 1984 and 2007 were reviewed. We focused on T1 and T2 tumours.(More)
