The malformations of the central nervous system affect about 5 to 10 children per 1000 births. We studied the central nervous system malformations in 5837 pediatric autopsies performed in the Sector of Anatomic Pathology, Hospital de Clínicas-UFPR, between 1960 and 1995. There were 157 central nervous system malformations (2.69%), the commonest were neural(More)
Fibromyalgia (FM) and migraine are common chronic disorders that predominantly affect women. The prevalence of headache in patients with FM is high (35%-88%), with migraine being the most frequent type. A particular subgroup of patients with FM (approximately half) presents with a combined clinical form of these two painful disorders, which may exhibit a(More)
BACKGROUND Carcinomas of unknown primary (CUP) represent approximately 3%-5% of malignant neoplasms. Identifying the tissue of origin (TOO) in these tumors allows for more specific treatment and improves outcomes. However, primary classification remains a challenge in many cases. We evaluated the ability of a microarray-based gene expression test to(More)
Hypoxic-ischaemic injury of the central nervous system (CNS) in newborns is a very prevalent entity affecting 1 to 6 children per 1000 births. This injury may induce severe neurological sequelae. We present the analysis of 1028 consecutive cases of hypoxic-ischaemic CNS injuries of haemorrhagic pattern detected in autopsies performed at the Division of(More)
The term holoprosencephaly (HPC) is used to indicate the group of hemispheric deformities caused by a failure in the development of the prosencephalic vesicle. The purpose of this study is to explain the morphologic spector of twelve cases of HPC, qualify them, and compare them to the literature. It was evaluated 5837 pediatrics necropsies, and there were(More)
The lesions of the central nervous system represent an important cause of morbid-mortality in the neonatal period. This is due to the vulnerability of the brain to several adverse conditions during gestation and after birth. This study analyses the prevalence and pattern of central nervous system lesions in neonates autopsied at Hospital de Clínicas -(More)
UNLABELLED Metastatic carcinoma of unknown primary (CUP) has a very poor prognosis, and no standard first-line therapy currently exists. Here, we report the results of a phase II study utilizing a combination of gemcitabine and irinotecan as first-line therapy. Treatment was with gemcitabine 1000 mg/m(2) and irinotecan 75 mg/m(2) weekly times four on a six(More)
