BACKGROUND Nosocomial infections (NIs) have become a matter of major concern and an important cause of morbidity and mortality in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). AIM The objective of this study was to determine the incidence, anatomical sites and causative organisms of NI in an Egyptian NICU, and to assess the impact of NI on length of stay and(More)
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is an autosomal dominant severe musculoskeletal disease characterized by extensive new bone formation within soft connective tissues and unique skeletal malformations of the big toes which represent a birth hallmark for the disease. Most of the isolated classic cases of FOP showed heterozygous mutation in the(More)
Familial hypomagnesemia with hypercalciuria and nephrocalcinosis (FHHNC) is a rare autosomal recessive tubular disorder that eventually progresses to renal failure, depending upon the extent of nephrocalcinosis. Its basic pathogenesis is impaired tubular resorption of magnesium and calcium in the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle (TAL) due to a(More)
Introduction Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is crucial in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus through angiotensin II which regulates vascular tone and endothelial functions. Objectives To study the frequency of ACE insertion/deletion (I/D) gene polymorphism in Egyptian children with systemic lupus erythematosus and its possible relation to(More)

The main objective of this study is to pinpoint the main factors that affect the percentage who suffers of malnutrition in developing countries. Three locations are randomly chosen: Asia, Africa, and Middle east and North Africa (MENA); A total of 96 countries were chosen randomly from 137 developing countries of the three locations; and were cross(More)
BACKGROUND Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is autosomal recessive disease that affects people from Mediterranean region, Europe and Japan. Its gene (Mediterranean fever [MEFV]) has more than 100 mostly non-sense mutations. OBJECTIVES The objective of the following study is to provide some phenotype-genotype correlates in FMF by categorizing the(More)
OBJECTIVES H syndrome and pigmented hypertrichosis with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (PHID) had been described as two autosomal recessive disorders. We aim to screen for pathogenic SLC29A3 mutations in two unrelated Egyptian families with affected siblings of these overlapping syndromes. METHODS Clinical, laboratory, histopathological, and(More)
