The incidence of aseptic osteonecroses in the therapy of acute leukaemias in children has been studied. Out of 551 children treated at the Children's Hospital in Münster from 1971 to 1985, 6 developed osteonecrosis, an incidence of 1.09%. Of these children, 5 showed unilateral or bilateral necrosis of the femoral head. The osteonecroses occurred 8–109(More)
During a 3-year period, sonographic evidence of portal venous gas (PVG) was found in 11 patients. Of these, 10 patients were examined for clinically suspected necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). In the 11th patient, suffering from nephroblastoma, PVG was detected by routine sonography. Radiographic examination, performed in nine of 11 patients did not show any(More)
The development of radiological changes in two patients with mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) Type I H/S is described. Radiological findings reveal enlargement of the sella in one patient, impression of the basilar skull in the other patient. Sclerosis and thickening of the base of skull was observed in both patients. The mandibular necks were short with(More)
Thirteen children with Schönlein-Henoch syndrome were evaluated for ultrasonographic changes of the gastro-intestinal tract. One patient was examined twice because of a relapse 1 year later. Out of 14 sonographic scans 10 showed abnormal findings, consisting of circumscribed hypo-echoic asymmetrical enlargement of the intestinal wall, the sonographic result(More)
A 10-year old, mentally and physically normally developed girl complained of back pain following an accident. Radiological findings revealed an inhomogeneous, coarse osteosclerosis along the endplates and posterior parts of the ovoid shaped vertebral bodies, in the proximal and distal femora-, proximal humeri and tibia epiphyses, and along the lateral(More)
Two children with acute leukaemia developed histologically confirmed invasive aspergillosis within 2 weeks after onset of polychemotherapy. One child had received only prednisone and one pulse of vincristine and daunorubicin before. This child showed classical roentgenographic signs of aspergilloma following an upper pulmonary lobe infiltration. The second(More)
Based on the published literature and on our own experiences in the imaging of lissencephalies with ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) we propose a strategy for the use of the different methods depending on the clinical symptoms and the age of the patient. In newborns and babies with suspected lissencephaly(More)
In order to evaluate the influence of radiation exposure on image quality in digital storage phosphor radiography, 200 digital storage phosphor chest radiographs, obtained on a neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and the same number of conventional screen-film radiographs (speed 250) were assessed for the visibility of anatomical structures and catheters. The(More)
Peliosis hepatis is characterized by multiple blood-filled spaces in the liver. The lesions were initially found by accident at autopsy in chronically debilitated patients and in association with certain drugs, particularly anabolic and contraceptive steroids (Lyon et al., 1984). Peliosis hepatis has been described in one patient with type I glycogen(More)
