We describe an outbreak of skin lesions due to Mycobacterium chelonae subsp. abscessus associated with injections of lidocaine (lignocaine) given by a 'bioenergetic' (a practitioner of alternative medicine) in Colombia. The lidocaine carpules and the lesions of the patients yielded mycobacteria with identical biochemical characteristics. Using the(More)

Twenty-five control subjects, fifteen subjects with Type 2 and ten subjects with Type 1 diabetes were examined to compare motor control during walking in a linear path and during turns. To eliminate the contribution of sensory neuropathies to the feet and myopathies of the lower leg muscles, subjects were selected with no sensory impairment in their feet or(More)
A retrospective study was performed of 33 cases of non Hodgkin's lymphoma in children diagnosed in our hospital. The mean age was 10 years and there were 24 males and 9 females. The distribution, according to Rappaport's diagnostic classification, was: 11 undifferentiated lymphomas, 9 lymphoblastic lymphomas, 6 diffuse histiocytic lymphomas, and 7 cases of(More)
The purpose of this work was to evaluate the therapeutic results attained with our 1980 protocol for Hodgkin's disease. The usefulness of staging laparotomy was also analysed. Along a 9-year period, 94 patients were diagnosed (stages IA and IIA: 26 cases, IB, IIB and IIIA: 24 cases, and IIIB and IV: 44 cases). The complete remission (CR) rate, as a whole,(More)

Abnormal results were only obtained in six cases and all of these findings could be attributed to sources other than the increased intracranial pressure. Once the disease as well as its cause had disappeared, a second study was carried out and the results for all(More)
