The purpose of this study was to retrospectively investigate the feasibility of fiber tracking at birth and 3 months in infants with hypoxic ischemia to detect disturbances in white matter development. This retrospective study did not require institutional review board approval. All parents gave informed consent. Diffusion-tensor magnetic resonance (MR)(More)
We report on a 35-year-old female with eosinophilic fasciitis (Shulman's syndrome). The characteristic features of this disease are scleroderma-like skin indurations, predominantly on the extremities, with joint contractures and intermittent blood eosinophilia. Histologic findings include fibrosis of muscle fascia and eosinophilic infiltration. Systemic(More)
We present the long-term results of open surgery for internal shoulder rotational deformity in brachial plexus birth palsy (BPBP). From 1997 to 2005, 207 patients (107 females, 100 males, mean age 6.2 (0.6 to 34)) were operated on with subscapularis elongation and/or latissimus dorsi to infraspinatus transfer. Incongruent shoulder joints were relocated. The(More)
In the neonatal brain, it is important to use a fast imaging technique to acquire all diffusion weighted images (DWI) for apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) calculation. Taking into account the occurrence of typical echo planar imaging (EPI) artifacts, we have investigated whether single-shot (SSh) or multishot (MSh) DWI-EPI should be preferred. In 14(More)
A giant intracranial aneurysm was diagnosed in a 10-year-old girl when she developed a right abducens nerve palsy. The aneurysm was treated successfully. Six years later, however, she presented with a progressive en coup de sabre deformity, leading to the diagnosis Parry Romberg Syndrome (PRS), a rare diagnosis characterized by hemifacial atrophy of skin,(More)
