Food allergy could affect up to 8% of children. Four cases of food anaphylaxis in hospitalized children are reported, pointing to the need of food allergenic safety procedures in hospital settings. The implementation of the operating procedure in hospital food production units (HFPU) of Nancy University Hospital is described. The dietetics Department(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of cyclic voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) for the detection of reflux in a large population of children with urinary tract infection. MATERIALS AND METHODS 234 patients (67% less than 3 years of age) underwent VCUG with two fillings in 214 cases and three fillings in 139 cases. Appearance or increase in the grade of reflux(More)
Infants (n = 35) with digestive symptom were investigated for diagnosis of cow's milk allergy (CMA). Milk atopy patch tests (APTs) were positive in 19 of 24 CMA versus 1 of 11 in non-CMA patients (P <.001). This sensitivity (79%) and specificity (91%) suggest that the APT could improve the detection of conditions related to CMA.
UNLABELLED This study evaluates the results of paediatric liver transplantation (PLT) with split liver grafts at Bicêtre hospital.

Addition of a daily dose of androgen in the form of 0.15 mg/kg of Stanzolol, given without interruption, gave an average survival of more than 4 years in patients suffering from granulocyte series acute leukaemias after complete remission was obtained. The simplicity of this treatment is apparent only from the appearance of marked manifestations of androgen(More)
Common bile duct stenosis associated with pancreatitis and hypereosinophilia is described in two children. Ultrasonography and CT showed slight increase in the size of the pancreas and bile duct dilatation. Percutaneous cholangiography (PTC) demonstrated extrinsic stenosis of the bile duct at the level of the pancreas. Spontaneous resolution of the clinical(More)
We present a case of a papillary solid neoplasm of the head of the pancreas incidentally diagnosed after an abdominal trauma in a thirteen year old boy. Imaging features (US, CT) of the lesion were not specific enough to permit a precise diagnosis with certainty. Preoperative percutaneous needle biopsy can give presumptive evidence which may guide the(More)
Thirty-five children with atopic dermatitis were proven to be allergic to various foods by dietary elimination and challenge, radio-allergosorbent test (RAST) and human basophil degranulation test (HBDT). Oral sodium cromoglycate improved skin lesions in these patients and protected them from the effects of challenge with food allergens. This protective(More)
