Cognitive impairment has been reported to occur in minor head injury (concussion). The value of the P300 evoked potential as a measure of cerebral concussion was studied in 20 patients with minor head injury and compared with the data from 20 normal subjects. Significant abnormalities of the P300 latency and amplitude were noted in these patients in the(More)
Pancreas Tonic, a dietary supplement, contains plant products shown to possess hypoglycemic activity. This study investigated the effect of Pancreas Tonic on serum glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin, and pancreatic islet cell regeneration of rats. Results showed that body weights of three groups of rats were not significantly different from each other before(More)
OBJECTIVES To estimate the burden of metabolic disorders detectable by tandem mass spectrometry in Egypt, through a pilot expanded newborn screening programme at Cairo University Children's Hospital in 2008, and examining the results of 3,900 clinically at-risk children, investigated at Cairo University Children's Hospital for the same disorders over the(More)
A 52-year-old man was admitted to the hospital with headache, confusion, and early papilledema. He was receiving prednisone and azathioprine for interstitial pulmonary fibrosis. A right temporoparietal cerebral abscess was diagnosed by computed tomographic scan, brain scan, and cerebral angiography. Fungal cultures of pus obtained at operation grew a(More)
OBJECTIVE In order to enhance awareness and promote registry for inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs) in Egypt, we aimed to evaluate the prevalence and main clinical findings of IEMs detectable by tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) among high risk pediatric patients presenting to our tertiary care facility at Cairo University Children's Hospital over a period(More)
Tuberculosis involving the endocardium is extremely rare. The diagnosis is usually made during autopsy. Often there is involvement of other parts of the heart as well as other regions of the body. The infection is a result of direct extension from the myocardium or hematogenous spread. Two cases of disseminated tuberculosis with endocardial involvement are(More)
In a prospective study the cyclic changes in the cervical microflora and the endometrial histology were correlated with the incidence of postoperative infections in 99 women undergoing elective abdominal hysterectomy. Escherichia coli and Bacteroides fragilis were isolated more frequently during the proliferative phase than during the secretory phase and,(More)
A patient had severe, episodic hypoglycemia with a mass occupying almost the entire left hemithorax. This mass was initially thought to be an inoperable intrathoracic malignant neoplasm. The findings during operation and the histologic appearance, however, were of a unique, localized benign mesothelioma.
INTRODUCTION Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder characterized by bone fragility and fractures. Patients with OI have clinical features that may range from mild symptoms to severe bone deformities and neonatal lethality. Numerous approaches for the classification of OI have been published. The Sillence classification is the most commonly(More)
