eyes) attending a UK district general hospital and used 5-FU enhancement in 36% of the patients. Our entire cohort was caucasian and just 13% of it previously had cataract extraction. The mean preoperative intraocular pressure was 26.4 (SD 6.72) while by 12 months and 5 years postoperatively, the pressures had come down to 14.9 (SD 3.90) and 14.0 (SD 3.52),(More)
Myocilin glaucoma is an autosomal dominant disorder leading to irreversible blindness, but early intervention can minimize vision loss and delay disease progression. The purpose of this study was to discuss the benefits of predictive genetic testing in minors for Myocilin mutations associated with childhood onset glaucoma. Three families with Myocilin(More)

We report here a case of congenital syphilis in a newborn after clindamycin treatment in pregnancy. Using PCR detection of tmpC (TP0319) and DNA sequencing of the genes TP0136 and TP0548, DNA sequences identical to Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum strain SS14 were detected in the infant's skin lesions, serum, and cerebrospinal fluid.
The authors provide evidence of the extreme increase of the frequency of acute pancreatitis. At the First Surgical Clinic in Brno in 1934 the frequency of acute pancreatitis (AP) was 0.2 pro mille (in the course of 3 years 4 patients among 20 000 hospitalized patients), at present (65 years later) in 1999 - 2001 it is 0.7%--74 patients among 10 676(More)
26 We report a case of congenital syphilis in a newborn after clindamycin treatment in pregnancy. 27 Using PCR detection of tmpC (TP0319) and DNA sequencing of genes TP0136 and TP0548, DNA 28 sequences identical to Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum strain SS14 were detected in the infant’s 29 skin lesions, serum, and cerebrospinal fluid. 30 31
