The anosmia is thought to represent agenesis or hypoplasia of the olfactory lobes, the mildest form of the alobar holoprosencephaly developmental field defect; this is supported by(More)
Children undergoing surgical correction of reflux require short-term and long-term assessment of the functional, bacteriological and radiologic results. In short-term assessment concentrating ability may be a more sensitive indicator of benefit or harm than creatinine clearance. There were no cases of persistent reflux and a 7 per cent obstruction rate in(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing reliance on consensus criteria for decision making. Recent criteria state that acromegaly is excluded by a nadir GH during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) of < 1 microg/l and a normal level of IGF-I. OBJECTIVE To study GH and IGF-I assay performance close to cut-off values for active acromegaly. DESIGN AND METHODS(More)
We report on 51 patients with hormone-resistant, stage D prostatic carcinoma who were treated with estramustine phosphate and followed for at least 6 months. Of the 51 patients 5 (10 per cent) had a partial objective response, 30 (59 per cent) remained stable and 16 (31 per cent) had progression of the disease. All of those patients who had a partial(More)
Diverticulitis is a disease affecting patients in the fifth to sixth decades. The charts of 12 patients with cesicocolonic fistulas secondary to diverticulitis were reviewed. Their presentation was primarily urological with pneumaturia present in 10 of 12 patients and fecaluria present in 5 of 12. The process of fistulization occurs in stages. If the(More)
