INTRODUCTION In hereditary spherocytosis, erythropoiesis has been described as 'sluggish' during the first months of life. The lack of appropriate erythropoietic response to compensate for increased red cell destruction necessitates blood transfusions in 70-80% of hereditary spherocytosis-affected infants during their first year of life. After this period,… (More)
OBJECTIVE Rotavirus nosocomial infection (RNI) is frequent in pediatric units. This study was designed to determine the incidence and the main risk factors of RNI in children aged 3 months-3 years and admitted for at least 48 hours days during the epidemic period. PATIENTS AND METHODS A stool sample was obtained within the 24 hours of admission. An… (More)
The present study relates to 39 children, 24 boys and 15 girls, aged 1 to 17 (mean age, 6 1/2 years) suffering from chronic airflow obstruction without muco-viscidosis. The search for a ciliary anomaly was motivated either by the coexistence of situs inversus (group I: 12 cases) or by the negative or scanty aetiological history (group II: 27 cases). The… (More)
The authors report a study of the modifications observed with sutures of PTFE (Goretex) and polyglactin (Vicryl) at the level of the sclera and the conjunctival. Inflammatory cells are fewer with PTFE both in the rabbit eyes (14 cases) from 3 to 110 days and in the human eye in a clinical study of 28 cases.
Among human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) vertically infected children, two patterns of disease progression have been observed: about 25% develop a severe immunodeficiency within the first 2 years of life; the rest experience a slower progression, like adults. We have assessed infectious viral burden in infected neonates through the French National… (More)
The extension of blood vessels into the normally avascular stroma defines corneal neovascularization. Though this phenomenon, pathophysiological and clinical features are well characterized, therapeutic modalities have been hindered by a lack of safe, efficacious and non-controversial treatments. In this literature review, we focus on available therapeutic… (More)
Sarcoidosis is rare in children, who usually have only asymptomatic pulmonary involvement. We report granulomatous cheilitis in two children with sarcoidosis. Both children had systemic sarcoidosis with lymph node and pulmonary involvement.
