The diagnosis of pedal osteomyelitis is often complicated by the presence of pre-existing bony abnormalities. In this study, the utility of radiolabeled white blood cell imaging for the detection of complicated pedal osteomyelitis was evaluated. Twenty-seven men and women were prospectively enrolled and underwent plain film radiography, three-phase bone(More)
Fibrosarcomas make up a small percentage of soft somatic tissue malignancies. Fibrosarcomas of the foot and ankle constitute an even smaller percentage of all reported cases with respect to anatomic locations. The postoperative local recurrence is great, and the diagnosis is often difficult to make because of the similar microscopic presentation of plantar(More)
Contrasting with the situation found in birds and mammals, sex chromosomes are generally homomorphic in poikilothermic vertebrates. This homomorphy was recently shown to result from occasional X-Y recombinations (not from turnovers) in several European species of tree frogs (Hyla arborea, H. intermedia and H. molleri). Because of recombination, however,(More)

The deformity appears to be familial in nature, although other possible etiologies remain including premature closure of the distal-lateral epiphysis of the middle phalanx, or a C-shaped epiphysis of the middle phalanx.
