A 3 1/2-year-old boy developed partial complex seizures with right-sided motor activity, occasionally secondarily generalized at age 18 months. Initial EEG showed left-sided focal epileptiform discharges. Seizures became refractory to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). At age 3 years, there was severe language deterioration consistent with Landau-Kleffner syndrome(More)
Pituitary function studies were performed in a patient with mild Hunter's syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type IIB, MPS IIB) in order to exclude growth hormone deficiency as a possible contributing cause of his short stature. The results indicated that anterior pituitary function and, in particular, growth hormone secretion was normal. The most likely(More)
PURPOSE Lymph node metastases are the most significant prognostic factor in localized non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Nodal micrometastases may not be detected with current standard histologic methods. We performed intraoperative technetium-99m ((99m)Tc) sentinel lymph node (SN) mapping in patients with resectable NSCLC. This study aimed to identify the(More)
PURPOSE Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) are frequently used for their beneficial psychoactive effects on affective disorders. We sought to demonstrate a psychoactive effect of gabapentin (GBP) when used as add-on AED therapy. METHODS Forty adult patients with partial epilepsy were studied in a prospective, non-randomized fashion with interviewer-rated and(More)
OBJECTIVE The case histories described each presented with a visual deficit, varying from permanent total blindness with ophthalmoscopic evidence of optic atrophy to variable and transient visual disturbances, including occasional blindness, but with absence of ophthalmoscopic or any other ocular abnormality.

Ninety-two women in preterm labor were randomly assigned to either terbutaline or ethanol. In women with intact membranes, terbutaline was significantly more effective than ethanol in preventing progressive cervical dilation during the first 36 hours of treatment while betamethasone was given to the mother. Additionally, pregnancy was maintained(More)
Recent data provided by the EURODIAB ACE study group have confirmed wide variation in the incidence of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) across Europe. The aim of this report is to compare age-specific incidence and seasonality at clinical onset of IDDM between study regions. Using a uniform methodology, the EURODIAB ACE framework ascertained 3,168(More)
Fifty issues of the British Medical Journal (BMJ), The Lancet, The British Journal of Psychiatry and Psychological Medicine were scrutinized. Papers were designated as invited or peer reviewed and the geographical location of the first author was recorded. For UK-based authors, the latitude and longitude of the host institution was noted and was allocated(More)
Cough and throat clearing might be difficult to differentiate when trying to detect them acoustically or manometrically. The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of acoustic monitoring for detecting cough and throat clearing, and to also determine whether these two symptoms present with different manometric profiles on esophageal pressure(More)
