REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Improved understanding of the epidemiology of atypical myopathy (AM) will help to define the environmental factors that permit or support the causal agent(s) to exert toxicity. OBJECTIVES This European survey of AM aimed to describe spatiotemporal distribution, survival, clinical signs, circumstances in which AM develops and(More)
REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Appropriate management of atypical myopathy (AM) requires the establishment of an accurate diagnosis and prognosis. Furthermore, preventive measures to avoid AM need to be refined. OBJECTIVES The aims of the study were as follows: 1) to improve the diagnosis of AM; 2) to identify prognostic predictors; and 3) to refine(More)
The supraspinal control of colonic motility and anorectal motility is poorly documented. We had the opportunity to study colonic function, esophageal function, and urinary bladder function in three patients who presented with vascular lesions limited to the anterior (case 1) or the posterior area (cases 2 and 3) of the pons. Esophageal manometry, urodynamic(More)
An osteoid osteoma was discovered at the site of fusion of a mid-third femoral shaft fracture in an 18-year-old girl. This unusual localization was revealed by persistent pain after ablation of the material after fracture healing. Postoperatively, a discharge from the skin wound that persisted for a few days, raised the differential diagnosis between(More)

OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence and causes of agitation states in patients presenting at the Rouen University Hospital emergency room and to analyze the management scheme. PATIENTS AND METHOD A prospective study was conducted over a 9 month period in 100 consecutive patients presenting a state of agitation assessed using the Overt Aggression Scale. A(More)
Wax reconstructions according to Born's methods were performed from serial 10-micron sections of the wrists of human embryos (B. Tardif) to study the triangular cartilage and central bone of the carpus. A subsequent morphological study of the adult scaphoid bone was conducted in the light of embryological data. The triangular cartilage was observed in 4 of(More)
