We report a case of fulminating systemic capillary leak syndrome which temporarily responded to verapamil, a calcium channel blocker. We noted two features of the disease not previously reported: a rise in lymphocyte count 2-3 days prior to an attack, and hypogammaglobulinemia. These findings are discussed in relation to the possible etiology of this(More)
Either acute or chronic inhibition of nitric oxide synthesis by L-arginine analogues results in increases in mean arterial pressure and reductions in renal blood flow. The role of endogenous vasoconstrictors in mediating these effects is not entirely clear. In the present study, nitric oxide was inhibited in male Sprague-Dawley rats by oral administration(More)
A 45-year-old hemodialysis patient presenting with recurrence of SLE which manifested predominantly as a unilateral left abducens (VIth) nerve palsy is described. The signs and symptoms of the cranial nerve palsy resolved within two weeks of initiating corticosteroid therapy. This is the first reported case of an abducens nerve palsy occurring in a(More)
A 45-year-old male with hypertensive end-stage renal disease and on maintenance hemodialysis for 13 years is reported. He presented with life-threatening hematemesis, secondary to esophageal rupture. Immunohistological staining and electron microscopy examination of the esophageal perforation showed depositions of beta 2-microglobulin (beta 2-M) amyoloid.(More)
We report the first case of an adult patient with hyperimmunoglobulemia E (Job's) syndrome, end-stage renal disease and repeated episodes of Staphylococcus peritonitis. A 42-year-old black female with end-stage renal disease was treated with hemodialysis, and later switched to peritoneal dialysis because of severe vascular access problems. On CAPD, she had(More)
