Background: We compared the sonographic characteristics of hepatic adenomas with pathologic findings. Methods: Information over 10 years was collected on 12 patients (six men, six women; mean age = 47 years) with surgically proven hepatic adenomas. Clinical data, sonographic features, and histopathologic findings were reviewed. Results: The tumors in males(More)
BACKGROUND Seasonal variations in mortality resulting from cardiovascular diseases (CVD) have been demonstrated in many countries, with the highest levels observed during the coldest months of the year. We studied the seasonal changes in CVD mortality in Norway and the Republic of Ireland, two countries which are demographically quite similar, but(More)
In many countries increased winter mortality from cardiovascular diseases (CVD) has been documented. A causal relationship between change in air temperature and change in number of deaths has been suggested. There is also evidence for a delay between a fall in air temperature and death (lag effect). We have investigated these relationships using mortality(More)
A case in which inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver (IPTL) seemed to complicate severe congenital neutropenia (Kostmann's disease) is reported. IPTL is a rare entity, especially in childhood. The exact etiology of this lesion is unknown, but it is generally regarded as a benign, reactive inflammatory condition. Based on 15 reported pediatric cases in the(More)
BACKGROUND Seasonal variations in mortality due to cardiovascular disease have been demonstrated in many countries, with the highest levels occurring during the coldest months of the year. It has been suggested that this can be explained by cold climate. In this study, we examined the relationship between mortality and two different climatic factors in two(More)
