UNLABELLED We studied the neuromuscular blocking effects of rapacuronium (Org 9487) (dose-response curve, onset, and 50% effective dose [ED50] value), and changes in heart rate and blood pressure, as well as evidence of histamine release in neonates, infants, and children in an open-label, randomized, two-center study. Fifteen neonates, 30 infants, and 30(More)
PURPOSE To explore the feasibility of using 3T high-resolution MR lymphangiography to characterize inguinal lymphatic vessel leakage (LVL). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen patients with known inguinal LVL underwent 3T MR lymphangiography and T(2)-weighted imaging. The presence or absence of inguinal LVL and the responsible lymphatic vessels were determined(More)
A patient with stage IV malignant melanoma treated with daily radiotherapy and low-dose (100 mg/m2) daily gemcitabine developed a blistering skin eruption, fever and neutropenia consistent with overlap Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN). The diagnosis was confirmed by skin biopsy of an affected area. The case history is described,(More)
PURPOSE To illustrate the utility of axial length measurements in the management of congenital glaucoma. METHODS Interventional case series. Twelve eyes of six consecutive patients with congenital glaucoma were followed with serial axial length measurements. The axial growth patterns were compared with the normal growth curve. RESULTS Eight (66.7%) of(More)
Hernia uteri inguinalis (HUI) is one of the rarest causes of male pseudo-hermaphroditism worldwide. We report the case of a 49-year-old male with discovery of this anomaly during inguinal hernia repair. A 49-year-old man presented to the clinic for recurrent inguinal hernia with enlarging left scrotum consistent with hydrocele on imaging. Upon exploration(More)
416 cases of P. falciparum cerebral malaria are treated with various anti-M drugs: mortality rate is 25% with quinacrine, 12.3%; quinine alone, and 10.1% with quinine associated to sulfonamide. During 1991-1992, artemisinin per os is used in the early treatment of 21 cases of cerebral malaria, in according to propose a regimen practicable at primary health(More)
