We report a surgically treated case of early infantile epileptic encephalopathy (EIEE) with suppression-bursts associated with focal cortical dysplasia. Tonic-clonic seizures followed by a series of spasms occurred about a hundred times a day at a few days of age. Interictal electroencephalogram (EEG) revealed a suppression-burst pattern that was(More)
A morphometric magnetic resonance imaging study was performed, and the results were compared among three groups (group 1, periventricular leukomalacia patients with West syndrome; group 2, periventricular leukomalacia patients without West syndrome; and group 3, control patients) to clarify the characteristics and cause of West syndrome. This study included(More)
We present a case of a 32-year-old diabetic woman with Prader-Willi syndrome who developed severe ketoacidosis caused by a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, a novel class of antihyperglycemic agents, during a strict low-carbohydrate diet.

CASE A 47-year-old, healthy, female presented with a breast tumor, which was aspirated. The cytomorphologic features were interpreted as suggestive of TL.

A serial determination of pulmonary surfactant apoprotein-A (SP-A) was made on tracheal aspirates from seven intubated infants with different types of respiratory failure in the first week of life. A two-site immunoassay with monoclonal antibodies was adopted to determine the SP-A concentration. The concentrations of albumin in the same samples were also(More)
