An epidemiological survey of hereditary ataxias and paraplegias was conducted in Molise, a region of Italy (335, 211 inhabitants on 1 January 1989). Total prevalence was 7.5 x 10−5 inhabitants (95% confidence limits 4.8–11.1). There were 7 patients with Friedreich's disease, 5 with early onset cerebellar ataxia with retained tendon reflexes, 4 with(More)
Screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria is a standard of obstetrical care and is included in most antenatal guidelines. There is good evidence that treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria will decrease the incidence of pyelonephritis. All pregnant women should be screened for asymptomatic bacteriuria, and there are no new data that would indicate otherwise.(More)

OBJECTIVE To compare the safety and efficacy of immunotherapy in 3 cohorts of patients sensitized to Vespula species. METHODS In this open study, 43 patients were treated with a subcutaneous(More)
Hypersensitivity reactions to chemotherapeutic antineoplastic agents represent a medical issue commonly considered of little importance. However, if in most courses of treatment the likelihood of an allergic reaction is very low, for some drugs, particularly L-asparaginase, taxans and platinum salts, the possible occurrence of hypersensitivity, not rarely(More)
Alimentary tract duplications are uncommon congenital anomalies that are usually present during the first decade of life. However, a smaller number of cases may remain unsuspected until adulthood. They are most common in the ileum but can occur anywhere along the alimentary tract. Duplications may be cystic or tubular in appearance and characteristically(More)
The authors report a case of a grade III pancreatic injury resulting from a blunt abdominal trauma, referred to our department for observation and treated with distal splenopancreatectomy. Pancreatic traumas account for approximately 3-5% of blunt abdominal injuries. In cases of isolated pancreatic injuries failure to recognise injury to the Wirsung duct is(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumours are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms of the digestive apparatus characterised by a complex histogenesis and lines of differentiation that make it difficult to predict their biological behaviour. Expression of the c-kit receptor in about 99% of gastrointestinal stromal tumours suggests they may originate from a common(More)
