Pulmonary aspergillosis is being diagnosed with increasing frequency, particularly in larger referral centers. The spectrum of lung pathology can be classified into 3 major groups: A) non-invasive mycetoma; B) allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and C) invasive aspergillosis. Five patients with pulmonary aspergillosis are presented, illustrating unusual… (More)
One hundred uncomplicated pregnancies of primigravida and secundigravida gestation were scanned within 24 h of delivery. The ultrasonic appearances of the uterus were categorized into three groups: 1) empty uterus; 2) cavity separation indicating blood or clot; and 3) dense cavity echoes representing retained tissue. The presence of blood and clot in the… (More)
Chronic hemodialysis (HD) may lead to losses of carnitine from plasma and muscle. Plasma carnitine does not reflect the body content of carnitine. The purpose of this study was the evaluation of total and free plasma and muscle carnitine concentrations (TPC, FPC, TMC, FMC), muscle glycogen and the relationship between plasma and tissue carnitine content and… (More)
Real-time ultrasonography was performed, utilising the patent anterior fontanelle, on 82 infants with viral or bacterial meningitis. One third of the cases had normal ultrasonic appearances. The other two thirds demonstrated abnormalities of the subdural space, parenchyma and ventricles. Ventricular dilatation was the commonest abnormality and was present… (More)
The clinical and radiologic diagnosis of exogenous lipoid pneumonitis often goes unrecognized. A specific history of lipoid aspiration is rarely obtained unless specifically sought. We analysed the clinical, radiologic and pathologic findings in 11 patients with pathologically-proven exogenous lipoid pneumonitis. Lipid aspiration results in a predictable… (More)
In the infant the cranial and abdominal complications of ventriculoperitoneal shunting can be assessed by real-time ultrasound via the anterior cranial fontanelle or the abdominal wall. The possible complications are listed and eight cases document the spectrum.
Pneumothorax is an uncommon complication of bronchiolitis. This case illustrates an unusual pattern of atelectasis of the right lung with pleural air surrounding the right upper lobe and the remainder of the lung expanded. It is thought that the hyperinflated lung is unable to collapse as a result of the ‘ball valve’ effect of air trapping.
A selective intubation method for examination of the afferent loop is described and brief review of complications involving the afferent loop is outlined. The value of the intubation method in patient management is illustrated by three case reports. We find this a helpful method for studying selected patients with clinical problems related to the afferent… (More)
