Nail-patella syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by dyplasia of finger nails, skeletal anomalies, and, frequently, renal disease. It has recently been shown that this disorder is caused by putative loss-of-function mutations in a transcription factor (LMX1B) belonging to the LIM-homeodomain family, members of which are known to be(More)
A new method of anatomic dissection and image reconstruction using computer techniques for better understanding of eustachian tube (ET) functioning is presented. Coronal sections of two noncleft fetal skulls were photographed and projected on a graphic tablet. Contours of the pertinent structures were digitized using a mouse. Coordinates of all digitized(More)
Two patients with a Noonan phenotype and progressive hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy are described, in whom abnormal histopathological changes in striated musculature were detected. In both patients an increased density of muscle spindles was found at biopsy. The significance of an increased density of muscle spindles in patients with Noonan(More)
To prevent wound dehydration and bacterial penetration, a wound dressing should be occlusive, but on the other hand it should also be permeable for wound exudate to prevent bullae formation. To meet these requirements a new type of polyurethane wound dressing which consists of a microporous top layer (pore size less than 0.7 mum) supported by a sublayer(More)
Two maternal cousins are described with the connatal form of Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease (PMD) and congenital stridor. Study of brain biopsy material confirms the diagnosis of PMD. The neuropathological findings are suggestive for the transitional form of this disease. Quantitative morphology gives support to the hypothesis that PMD is a disturbance in(More)
