A case of a potentially lethal arteriovenous malformation of the right side of the mandible has been presented. Procedures that may be helpful in diagnosing the lesion have been discussed, and a protocol for treatment of these lesions in the mandible has been proposed. Research of the cause and management of these lesions is greatly needed.
Five groups of ten female guinea-pigs were passively sensitized against ovalbumin (OA) (n = 9) or control guinea-pig serum (n = 1). 24 h later, they received mepyramine (0.5 mg/kg, i.p.) and 30 min later inhaled aerosols of: (A) OA (2 in 0.9% saline, 8 min, n = 4/9); (B) saline (40 min, n = 4/9); (C) LPS (40 min, Escherichia coli 0111:B4, 150 ng/kg in PBS,(More)
Basal-cell carcinoma most commonly occurs in men in the fifth to seventh decades of life. The area of the lesion is usually one that has frequent exposure to the sun: the middle third of the face and upper lip. An unusual case of basal-cell carcinoma occurring on the lower lip and involving the commissure in a 21-year-old woman is presented. The surgical(More)
Monocyte interleukin-1 (IL-1) production in vitro was studied in 49 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 31 controls. Twenty-six of the RA patients were studied prospectively for up to 12 months after beginning chrysotherapy. About half of the patients (group 1) exhibited pretreatment levels of monocyte IL-1 secretion (as measured by bioassay or(More)
The clinical and radiographic features of two cases of pleomorphic adenoma are discussed. With the use of hypocycloidal tomography, definitive radiographic signs of benignity are demonstrated. They include (1) a radiolucent defect with well-defined cortical margins; (2) beveled margins which describe an intraoral origin of the neoplasm; (3) confinement of(More)
1. Cardiovascular responses to the stress of orthostasis, forearm (FA) ischaemia (reactive hyperaemia) and FA exercise (postexercise hyperaemia) are well described. Although sex differences in responses to orthostatic stress have been reported, few studies have examined the impact of sex on reactive hyperaemia and none has commented with regard to(More)
