Blood samples were obtained from 509 apparently healthy infants between the age of 3 and 54 weeks attending for routine checks at infant health centres. Serum was assayed for thiamin, pyridoxal, cobalamin and folate. Three hundred and five infants were being breast fed and results from these were used to construct a reference range-thiamin 2-17(More)
The unique case of a 55-year-old man with multifocal adenolymphoma (Warthin's tumour) of both parotid glands, the neck and post-nasal space is presented. Warthin tumour is almost exclusively a parotid tumour but is known to be bilateral in 7-10% of cases and multifocal in 2% of cases. Most extraglandular Warthin tumours have been located in neck lymph nodes(More)
Serum thiamine concentrations in 233 infants dying from the sudden infant death syndrome were compared with those found in 46 infants dying from other explicable causes. The levels in the sudden infant death group ranged from 22- greater than 500 micrograms/1 (mean 144.3 micrograms/1) and in the controls less than 1.0-95 micrograms/1 (mean 26.5(More)
Fifty cases of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) have been selected randomly from a group of 511 such cases studied since 1973. In addition, thiamine levels from 12,613 babies screened during the study period are also reviewed in relation to SIDS deaths. Despite exhaustive post-mortem analysis, few indications to causation are apparent. When compared with(More)
We present an unusual cause of rhinolalia clausa secondary to an oropharyngeal mass. A 69-year-old male presented to the otorhinolaryngology clinic with a one year history of a 'plummy' voice. He had a longstanding history of severe ankylosing spondylitis. Examination revealed an obvious hyponasal voice and a smooth hard mass in the midline of the posterior(More)
