The acronym CHARGE refers to a syndrome of unknown cause. Here we report on 47 CHARGE patients evaluated for the frequency of major anomalies, namely coloboma (79%), heart malformation (85%), choanal atresia (57%), growth and/or mental retardation (100%), genital anomalies (34%), ear anomalies (91%), and/or deafness (62%). In addition, we comment on(More)
UNLABELLED This retrospective study aims to analyze the outcome, the prognosis factors and the long-term growth of children after extensive small bowel (SB) resection in the neonatal period. PATIENTS AND METHODS 87 children, born between 1975 and 1991 who had undergone extensive neonatal small bowel resection, were followed up over a mean period of 15(More)
The only curative treatment for enzymatic deficiency such as Ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency is liver transplantation. We have studied hepatocyte transplantation as alternative therapy in spfash mouse, the animal mode of OTC deficiency. Hepatocytes were obtained from C57BL/6J strain mice (normal OTC activity). About 2 x 10(6) hepatocytes in 0.1(More)
PURPOSE To describe the imaging features of POEMS, and to compare our experience of 8 cases to a review of literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study included 8 patients (6 men, 2 women) with POEMS. Plain radiographs (8 patients), CT (6), MR (2) were performed. RESULTS Topographic localizations of POEMS were pelvis (7 cases), spine (5),(More)
The aim of this study was to report the presentation and outcome of 22 consecutive children (13 female) who presented with a syndrome of chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction with or without urinary tract involvement. We analyse the main clinical and histopathological features and discuss therapeutic management. Ten patients had signs of intestinal(More)
The inevitable regression of molluscum contagiosum (MC) has been the major argument in favor of leaving the lesions to spontaneous involution. But the infection is often widespread and recurrent. Conventional therapies are frequently ineffective and require multiple visits. Flashlamp-pumped pulsed dye laser is now recommended in the therapy of MC in case(More)

PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a prospective study over two years of all the patients consulting the Dermatology department of the University hospital in Saint-Etienne for cutaneous rosacea, and(More)
The third generation dye lasers are pulsed dye lasers with a wavelength of 595 nm. Hemangiomas are the most common benign tumor in infancy, and ulceration is their most frequent complication. We used a 595 nm, Dermobeam 2000 laser (from Deka MELA Calenzano, Italy), using a dynamic skin cooling system (Spray) as the cooling method. The diameter of the(More)
Following the article of Alberti et al., we would like to provide our own experience with two more cases in evaluation of POEMS syndrome using morphological and functional imaging modalities, including plain X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), bone scintigraphy and positrons emission tomography with computed tomography(More)
Esophageal bronchus is the most common congenital bronchopulmonary foregut malformation. Current surgical treatment is resection of anomalous pulmonary tissue, which is often hypoplastic and destroyed by infection. The authors report two cases of bronchotracheal reconstruction. The diagnosis was early, before 15 days of age. The anomalous pulmonary tissue(More)
