AIM To determine immunocytochemically whether preterm and newborn infants with necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) show differences in numbers of lysozyme positive Paneth cells compared with normal controls, and to relate the findings to the possibility that lysozyme deficiency may facilitate the bacterial infections thought to be associated with this(More)
The authors present the case of a child with recurrent infections since the age of 4 months, including bilateral pneumonia by Pneumocystis carinii and protracted varicella. Serum immunoglobulin values (when 10 months old), and B cell values were normal. There was persistent lymphocytic leucocytosis, near absence of CD8+ cells, and an increased CD4/CD8(More)
A 3-month-old child with a grossly symmetrical monomorphic papular acral-located skin eruption, a voluminous lymphadenopathy post-BCG vaccination, and hepatomegaly was seen. The diagnoses of Gianotti-Crosti's syndrome and generalized tuberculous infection have been discarded. The appearance of these lesions 48 hours after a tuberculin patch test, their(More)
The height values of 122 boys and 124 girls, 7 to 11 years old, from 19 primary schools of the central area of Portugal were evaluated in 1988. The values from boys of all ages and girls younger than 9 years were normally spread, according to american (NCHS-USA 1976) standards. Girls older than 9 years were relatively shorter which could be related to the(More)
In an attempt to discern the paradigms underlying our medical practice (more specifically paediatrics) over the last 30 years, it was found that these are rather similar to the ones prevailing at the beginning of this period--all wrong-doings were attributed to outside forces which had to be neutralized; the obsession to standardise the internal milieu; the(More)
In this study the authors analysed the evolution of blood urea nitrogen in 14 infants during treatment of hypernatremic dehydration. BUN values decreased at a low rate comparing with usual standard limits: a) a correlation between initial BUN and natremia was observed, b) in 9 out of 14 infants there was a transient elevation of BUN, between 5 to 24 hours(More)
The understanding of the glass trade in the first millennium CE relies on the characterisation of well-dated compositional groups and the identification of their primary production sites. 275 Byzantine glass weights from the British Museum and the Bibliothèque nationale de France dating to the sixth and seventh century were analysed by LA-ICP-MS.(More)
