To quantify lactate gluconeogenesis, we developed a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry method based on the infusion of [6,6-2H2]glucose and [3-13C]lactate tracers to 12 infants aged 1-25 mo fasting for 11.5 +/- 1.5 h. Both rates of appearance of plasma glucose (26.7 +/- 2.6 mumol.kg-1.min-1, 4.8 +/- 0.5 mg.kg-1.min-1) and lactate (30.8 +/- 3.1(More)
BACKGROUND The persistent müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is characterized by the persistence of the uterus and Fallopian tubes in otherwise normally virilized boys. Its diagnosis is usually made during a surgical procedure for inguinal hernia or cryptorchidism. We report six recent cases of PMDS, in which we have studied anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) serum(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperglycemia in the neonate may be permanent or more frequently transient. Its treatment is still debated. PATIENTS AND METHODS The files of 19 infants with hyperglycemia were retrospectively analysed. Their birth-weights were more than 900 g and their gestational ages more than 27 weeks. Plasma glucose, insulin, C-peptide, islet-cell and(More)
BACKGROUND The procedures used to locate pancreatic endocrine tumors have only limited success in infants and children in whom the nodules may be small. Portal catheterization may therefore be useful. CASE REPORT A child aged 6 yrs 4 months was admitted because of several recent episodes of pallor and sweating associated with hypoglycemia.

BACKGROUND The survival and outcome of infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BD) depend on the patient's maturity, the severity of the BD and nutritional problems. This study evaluates the specific role of chronic pulmonary failure in the growth and development of infants recovering from BD. POPULATION AND METHODS 88 infants admitted for BD from(More)
Because the infant's brain is to a large extent dependent on glucose utilization, hypoglycemia of infants can have grave effects on brain function, and it is important to diagnose it and, when possible, treat it promptly. Causes of hypoglycemia in infants are (a) excess insulin secretion, (b) factitious hyperinsulinemia, (c) GH or ACTH deficiency, (d)(More)
While allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) may offer the best chance of cure for patients suffering from aggressive hematological malignancies such as acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and myelodysplastic syndrome, successful outcomes for the subgroup of patients with high-risk disease remain disappointing and lag behind(More)
Epidemiological data on diarrhea due to Rotavirus are similar enough across different regions of the world to allow the pooling of clinical studies of Actapulgite for the treatment of acute diarrhea in infants and children in France and Africa. A total of 7,616 infants and children were entered into these open or placebo-controlled trials. Most patients(More)
