Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the most common cause of postneonatal mortality in the UK. Pathological investigations have shown evidence suggestive of respiratory obstruction with subsequent hypoxia leading to death. We examined 48 infants who died of SIDS and 30 who died of other, non-pulmonary, causes and identified pulmonary eosinophil and(More)
A premature infant with duplication of material from chromosome 11 and some features of the Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome developed the bronze baby syndrome when exposed to phototherapy. He subsequently developed hepatocellular dysfunction and died aged 5 weeks. Post mortem examination revealed striking hypoplasia of intralobular bile ducts but little(More)
A fetus with severe sacral agenesis and intrauterine growth retardation, ascertained at prenatal diagnosis, was found to be carrying an unbalanced form of a paternal balanced reciprocal translocation (7;19)(q36.1;q13.43), resulting in functional monosomy for 7q36.1-->qter. Necropsy confirmed that the fetus had isolated sacral agenesis type II. A critical(More)
The results of weekly colposcopy review meetings have been audited for 1 year and cases where there was a discrepancy between the referral cervical smear and the initial colposcopy biopsy have been analysed. New referrals (n = 476) for colposcopy were studied. In the final outcome 80% of 326 women referred for moderate or severe dyskaryosis were found to(More)
The desmoplastic small round cell tumour (DSRCT) is a rare, highly malignant neoplasm usually presenting in the abdomen of adolescent males. A characteristic translocation between the Ewing's sarcoma gene on chromosome 22 and the Wilms' tumour gene WT1 on chromosome 11 has been described, producing a fusion gene with expression of the DNA binding area of(More)
AIM To establish whether infection with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) contributed to the development of coronary artery lesions in a six year old child with an aneurysm and stenoses of the coronary arteries and suspected Kawasaki disease. METHODS Postmortem paraffin wax sections of the coronary artery and myocardium were examined by in situ hybridisation for(More)
Previous observations have suggested that a reactive astrocytic response to damage does not occur in fetal brain. In this study the time course of the astrocytic response to injury in fetal and neonatal rat brains has been assessed using the immunoperoxidase technique for glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). Cold lesions were induced in utero to the(More)
