AIMS To develop standardised texts for assessing reading speed during repeated measurements and across languages for normal subjects and low vision patients. METHODS 10 texts were designed by linguistic experts in English, Finnish, French, and German. The texts were at the level of a sixth grade reading material (reading ages 10-12 years) and were matched(More)
AIMS To measure spectacle dependence following bilateral monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and assess how it is predicted by postoperative refraction. METHODS 300 cataract patients had bilateral phacoemulsification surgery with monofocal IOL implantation. A spherical equivalent of 0 to -0.5 D was targeted. Three months after surgery, patients(More)
Two cases of gastric volvulus are presented to highlight the predisposing factors, mechanism and different types of volvulus, and the role of imaging in making the diagnosis. Eventration of the diaphragm and hiatus hernia are precipitating factors for developing organo-axial and mesentero-axial volvulus. Imaging is key to making the diagnosis and(More)
In 1938 Marcus Rhodes provided the first genetic description of an unstable mutation, an allele of a gene required for the production of pigment in maize. This instability resulted in a variegated phenotype. Variegation describes irregular patterns of pigmentation and reflects changes in the expression of genes that control pigment production. Rhodes(More)
Case report A 39-year-old woman presented with lower abdominal pain and menorrhagia. Clinical examination showed pallor, hepatosplenomegaly, and a pelvic mass which was discovered to be a multifibroid uterus. Laboratory tests were positive for bilharzia, which accounted for the hepatosplenomegaly. In addition to the multifibroid uterus, an ultrasound showed(More)
INTRODUCTION Breast lesions that appear benign on ultrasound examination continue to be biopsied, and no relevant data from Africa exist. OBJECTIVE To determine the histological spectrum of sonographically benign lesions measuring >3 cm in women in Johannesburg, South Africa, by age and population group, and establish associations between the histological(More)
