Of 737 patients with Down syndrome, newborn to 22 years of age, 47 had a history of at least one seizure. Of those, 24 children had seizures with an identifiable etiology, usually related to a common medical complication of Down syndrome: neonatal hypoxia-ischemia, hypoxia from congenital heart disease, or infection. These acute medical illnesses may(More)
BACKGROUND A multicentre randomised controlled trial to determine the effect of a rigid plaster dressing applied at the time of trans-tibial amputation on the number of days to casting for a prosthesis, and the incidence of post-operative stump infection. METHODS Patients requiring trans-tibial amputation were randomised to one of 2 groups: In Group 1(More)
In lieu of traditional training of examiners to identify cerebral palsy on a neurologic examination at age 1 year, we proposed an alternative approach using a multimedia training video and CD-ROM we developed after a two-step validation process. We hypothesized that use of CD-ROM interactive training will lead to reliable and valid performance of the(More)
The authors evaluated the efficacy of acetazolamide (ACZ) and furosemide (FUR) in avoiding ventricular shunting procedures in preterm infants with posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH) and increased intracranial pressure (ICP). Preterm infants were screened for PHH (defined as ventriculomegaly [VM] and increased ICP measured with the Ladd fiberoptic monitor).(More)
A 6-month-old girl developed intermittent dystonic posture of the legs and eczematous dermatitis without ataxia. Qualitative and quantitative urine amino acid testing confirmed the diagnosis of Hartnup disease. Cranial computed tomography, electroencephalogram, electromyogram/nerve conduction study, posterior tibial somatosensory evoked potentials, 24-hour(More)
Furosemide and acetazolamide are often used concurrently to treat posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus in premature infants with intraventricular hemorrhage. Eleven premature infants with posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus were monitored for the development of hypercalciuria during treatment using urine calcium/creatinine (Ca/Cr) ratios (normal: less than or equal to(More)
The evoked potentials and cranial computed tomographic (CT) scan findings in a case of early infantile globoid cell leukodystrophy are presented. The brain stem auditory evoked responses (BAERs) and the flash visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were abnormal. Repeated cranial CT scans showed multiple areas of increased attenuation and progressive cerebral(More)
