BACKGROUND Although malnutrition affects thousands of children throughout the Sahel each year and predisposes them to infections, there is little data on the etiology of infections in these populations. We present a clinical and biological characterization of infections in hospitalized children with complicated severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in Maradi,(More)
Delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction (DHTR) is one of the most feared complications of sickle-cell disease (SCD). We retrospectively analyzed the clinical and biological features, treatments and outcomes of 99 DHTRs occurring in 69 referral center patients over 12 years. The first clinical signs appeared a median of 9.4 [IQR, 3-22] days after the(More)
Decision support systems in the medical field have to be easily modified by medical experts themselves. The authors have designed a knowledge acquisition tool to facilitate the creation and maintenance of a knowledge base by the domain expert and its sharing and reuse by other institutions. The Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) contains the domain(More)
Blood transfusion is a medical domain where decision support systems (DSSs) could be very helpful to the physicians but must easily and continuously be maintained. We have developed a knowledge acquisition tool that allows the construction and the maintenance of such a system by the domain expert. The methodology used could be applied to another highly(More)
A working group of the French National Hemovigilance Committee has been in charge of heightening awareness of Transfusion-Associated Circulatory Overload (TACO) among physicians and nurses. This multidisciplinary group has produced the present document that focuses on epidemiological data provided by the French haemovigilance network, physiopathology,(More)
BACKGROUND Delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction (DHTR) is a life-threatening condition in sickle cell disease (SCD) patients that is frequently complicated by hyperhemolysis. Antibodies resulting from antigen disparity between donors of European ancestry and patients of African ancestry are common, but situations involving antibodies not classically of(More)
A UMLS-based knowledge acquisition tool for rule-based clinical decision support system development.. HAL is a multidisciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not. The documents may come from teaching and research institutions in France or abroad, or from public or(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the understanding of written information contained in the information sheet for patients intended to receive an homologous transfusion and to know their opinion about this document. TYPE OF THE STUDY A prospective cohort survey carried out by people unrelated to clinical units and transfusion services. METHODS A document divided in(More)
The reciprocal t(4;11)(q21;q23) is often described in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In some cases, variant or complex t(4;11) has been detected in ALL by cytogenetic analysis, but to our knowledge no molecular study has been reported in these variant translocations. We describe a 27-year-old woman suffering from pre-B-cell ALL with an unusual(More)
Delayed hemolytic reaction transfusion in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) is a serious and still under diagnosed event. Clinical and biological presentation mimics an acute SCD complication. It is a life-threatening event, especially in hyperhemolysis syndrome (HS) characterized by a massive destruction of both the donor's and patient's red blood(More)
