Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) consists of a prolonged state of eosinophilia of unknown origin with organ involvement. We describe the case of a patient who developed fatal eosinophilic myocarditis. A 23-year-old woman with an 8-month history of eosinophilia presented with symptoms of myocarditis. Histological evaluation of an endomyocardial(More)
Psoriasis is an immune-mediated inflammatory disease for a long time considered as a type of pathology characterized by an exclusive skin involvement. Recently it has been shown that patients affected by this disease have a higher risk of developing comorbidities such as cardiovascular diseases, arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and metabolic(More)
INTRODUCTION The predictive role of hyponatremia has been tested in acute and chronic heart failure. Sodium level is inversely related with renin-angiotensin-aldersterone system (RAAS) and sympathetic nervous activity but important issues remain unresolved. Our aim was to define the level of hyponatremia able to predict 1-year outcomes and investigate the(More)
A coryneform bacterium was isolated from the bronchoalveolar aspirate of a patient with interstitial pulmonary inflammation. Commercial systems identified the isolate as Corynebacterium sp. or Aureobacterium sp./Corynebacterium aquaticum, but 16S rRNA gene analysis unequivocally attributed it to the genus Microbacterium. This represents the first documented(More)
CONTEXT Unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in England and Wales. METHODS. STUDY DESIGN observational case series. Data on fatal carbon monoxide poisoning in England and Wales from 1979 to 2012 were obtained from coroner reports. Data on unintentional non-fire-related carbon monoxide poisoning(More)
We consider a solar power supply for a LTE macro base station (BS) based on a photovoltaic (PV) panel and a battery, and we develop two discrete-time Markov chain (DTMC) models for the analysis and the dimensioning of the system elements (PV panel size and battery capacity). The DTMC models account for the solar irradiance levels in pairs or triples of(More)
OBJECTIVE Partial left ventriculectomy (PLV) (also known as Batista's Procedure) is a surgical procedure for treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy when cardiac transplant is contraindicated. Mitral valve replacement is needed because of mitral regurgitation as a consequence of annulus enlargement and papillary muscle resection. Bleeding and arrythmias are the(More)
Continuous interaction of mother and infant in the first weeks and months of an infant's life entrains the infant on many crucial aspects of how to do things together. Contingencies of gaze, vocalizations, and other movements are slowly routinized; this scaffolds directing of attention to each other and the world and gives to such multimodal interactions(More)
The 'epidemic' diffusion of chronic kidney disease (CKD) needs the development of new therapeutic approaches to slow down the progression to end-stage renal disease. Endothelial Progenitor Cells (EPCs) are promising tools for the treatment of many human diseases as they promote the repair of damaged tissues. They were also suggested as therapy to repair(More)
Dynamical systems approaches to social coordination underscore how participants' local actions give rise to and maintain global interactive patterns and how, in turn, they are also shaped by them. Developmental research can deliver important insights into both processes: (1) the stabilization of ways of interacting, and (2) the gradual shaping of the(More)
