We report a case of acquired von Willebrand syndrome in association with multiple myeloma, diagnosed in a 54 year-old man suffering from sudden onset of mucocutaneous bleeding. The acquired von Willebrand syndrome is a rare bleeding disorder with laboratory findings similar to those of inherited von Willebrand disease. Diagnosis, etiology and(More)
Tigecycline (TGC), a semisynthetic glycylcycline, has a documented activity on Gram+ and Gram- pathogens including oxacillin-resistant (MRSA) and an extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae. Tigecycline Evaluation and Surveillance Trial (TEST) is an international surveillance study designed to assess the in vitro activity of TGC(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is responsible for nosocomial infections and demonstrates many types of resistance mechanisms to antibiotics. Thus, in vitro susceptibility survey are frequently required. In this study, susceptibility has been assessed on 105 non redundant consecutive strains isolated from ICU's in 18 general hospitals, from 01.02.98 to 30.06.98.(More)
A 51-years-old patient with polyadenopathies presents a non monotypic chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL): lymphocytes B CD5+, CD23+, CD22-,CD79b dim, FMC7- express κ (71%) and λ (21%) light chains without coexpression. The caryotype shows two clones with one in evolution. Lymphoid clonality analysis by PCR (polymerase chain reaction) of the heavy and light(More)
We report a case of a de novo acute basophilic leukaemia, revealed by an infectious pneumopathy in a 73 year old man. The full blood count revealed an hyperleucocytosis associated with an unregenerative normocytic normochrom anaemia and a thrombocytopenia. The blood and bone marrow smears showed a mixture of undifferentiated blast cells and basophiloblasts(More)
In this study, teicoplanin was administered to burnt patients by IV and IM route in monotherapy or in association with other antibiotics. 12 cases of septicaemia and 8 severe cutaneous cocci Gram + infections were treated. Dosage varied from 5 mg/kg to 14 mg/kg. Clinical cure was observed in 89% of cases, and eradication of cocci Gram + in 83%. The MICs of(More)
The authors studied the peritoneal diffusion of ceftriaxone in the four quadrants of the abdomen (right and left inguinal and right and left hypochondrium) in 50 adult patients divided into 4 groups: pre-operative IVD administration of ceftriaxone in patients with healthy peritoneum, 1 g (group I), 2 g (group II): pre-operative IVD administration of(More)
Flow cytometry is the most widely used method for lymphocyte subset characterization. Two types of antibodies, directly labeled with fluorochrome, are currently used for immunological diagnosis of B-cell lymphoproliferation: monoclonal antibodies against leukocyte differentiation antigens and polyclonal antibodies against immunoglobulins and light chains.(More)
