The purpose of this study was to investigate the response properties of event related potentials to unimodal and bimodal stimulations. The amplitudes of N1 and P2 were larger during bimodal evoked potentials (BEPs) than auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) in the anterior sites and the amplitudes of P1 were larger during BEPs than VEPs especially at the(More)
Pseudohypoaldosteronism type 1 (PHA1) is a disease involving a state of renal tubular unresponsiveness to the action of aldosterone and characterized by excessive salt loss in the urine, hyperkalemia, and metabolic acidosis. In kidney, PHA1 may occur primarily by mutations in the subunits of the sodium channel or in the mineralocorticoid receptors, and(More)
AIM The aim of the study was to evaluate the role of selenium (Se) in childhood autoimmune thyroiditis regarding its effect on thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), free thyroxine (fT4), thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOAb), thyroglobulin antibody (TgAb), and thyroid morphology. METHODS Newly diagnosed 23 euthyroid children (mean age, 12.3 +/- 2.4 years)(More)
Familial Mediterranean Fever is an autosomal recessive disease. Major symptoms of disease are recurrent fever accompanied by serositis attacks. The disease is usually diagnosed before 20 years of age. Symptoms related to FMF are noted when children become more verbal, usually after 2 years of age. In this case report, the youngest patient with the diagnosis(More)
In the present study, the wide band alpha and sub-bands of alpha in the auditory on- and off-responses to different stimulation frequencies were evaluated. Auditory on- and off-responses of 12 healthy volunteers (average 17 years old) were recorded from five locations (Fz, Cz, Pz, P3, and P4). The auditory stimuli of 80 dB SPL and 1000 ms duration were(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to compare the cochlear functions of children diagnosed with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) with healthy controls and to determine their cochlear functions according to their disease severity. METHODS Seventy-three children with FMF and 30 healthy controls were included in the study. All the patients and controls(More)
Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon (KMP) is characterized by vascular tumour and consumptive coagulopathy with life-threatening thrombocytopenia, prolonged prothrombin time and partial thromboplastin time, hypofibrinogenemia, and the presence of high fibrin split products. We report a case of 3-year-old boy with local aggressive vascular lesions associated with(More)
Right atrial appendage aneurysm is a very rare condition which can be asymptomatic or can cause arrhythmia or life-threatening thromboembolism. We report a case of newborn with right atrial appendage aneurysm who was diagnosed with fetal echocardiography. Anticoagulant therapy was applied to prevent thromboembolism and he is still going on follow-up without(More)
Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctate (RCDP) is a rare autosomal recessive peroxisomal disease. The main features of the disease are shortening of the proximal long bones, punctate calcifications located in the epiphyses of long bones and in soft tissues around joints and vertebral column, vertebral clefting, dysmorphic face, and severe growth retardation,(More)
Objectives A 2-year old boy had been treated as incomplete KD by 2 gr/kg/day of IVIG and 80 mg/kg/day of aspirin at a general pediatrics clinic. From his previous data it was learned that, fever was present for 24 days and it was peaking two to three times a day. He had had a faint rash, arthralgia and lymphadenopathy during follow-up period. But he had’t(More)
