BACKGROUND Mucormycosis is a life-threatening fungal infection in patients with predisposing conditions. CASE REPORT We report the case of a 7-year-old girl with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and rhinocerebral mucormycosis who successfully completed chemotherapy. The infection with Rhizopus genus was mycologically identified from nasal secretions and(More)
An experimental investigation is presented on oscillations excited by the dynamics of an anode double layer or fireball in a double plasma (DP) machine. The fireball is created by additional ionization processes in front of a small circular anode, which is inserted into the diffusive DP plasma and biased positively. An annular (ring) electrode, usually(More)
Pheochromocytoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor that arises from the chromaffin cells of the sympathetic nervous system. Over one third of pheochromocytomas are associated with germline mutations. We describe a 3 year-old girl with an inherited right adrenal malignant pheochromocytoma, with the mother diagnosed with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome. Genetic tests(More)
Chronic myelogenous leukemia, BCR-ABL1 positive (CML) is a rare myeloproliferative neoplasm in children and presents even less often as a secondary malignancy in the pediatric population. Below, we report a patient with Philadelphia-negative B-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma, who developed CML several years after achieving complete remission, and summarize(More)
Infantile hemangiomas as frequent infancy tumors have been a controversial issue of medical scientists worldwide. Their clinical aspects are various and their physiopathology is yet to be fully understood. Numerous publications outline the characteristics, causes, evolution possibilities and therapeutic approaches. Deciding whether to treat or not is the(More)
The products of 2-heptanone conversion by dielectric barrier discharge plasma are analyzed under different conditions: alternating current (ac) or pulsed mode of excitation, variable energy, variable composition of the carrier gas. The efficiency of the conversion is higher using a pulse excitation mode than an ac mode. With a small oxygen percentage (about(More)
