This study was designed to look at the differences in visuospatial abilities between boys and girls before they can speak fluently. At the mandatory two year follow up visit, children were given the opportunity to build a tower and a bridge. In children whose birth weight was > or = 2500 g, the capacity for erecting a tower was the same in both sexes, but(More)
Two patients presented in early childhood with: 1) alopecia, skin rashs, and candida dermatitis; 2) severe hypotonia, ataxia and motor retardation; 3) frequent episodes of ketoacidosis with hyperlactacidemia. Propionic and methylcrotonic aciduria only appeared on hyperprotidic diet. Mitochondrial biotin-dependent carboxylase activities were decreased in the(More)
The antibacterial effect of intravenous immune globulins (IVIG) was tested in 4 to 6-week-old chickens experimentally infected with a K1 E. coli strain from a neonate with meningitis. Following inoculation of 10(7) E. coli K1 per animal, the chickens were randomized to receive a placebo, 0.25 g/kg, 0,50 g/kg or 1 g/kg of intravenous immune globulins.(More)
We have experimented with a new instrument, "hemopipette", known to reduce the incidence of contamination in small samples of capillary blood for haemoculture. Without altering our usual skin asepsis procedure, we carried out 270 microhaemocultures in 240 neonates. Two haemocultures (0.74%) were contaminated, a significantly lower percentage than the 3.6%(More)
Capillary and venous diffusion of bacteria were studied in chickens after intravenous inoculation with Escherichia coli K12. A first group of 35 chickens was inoculated with 10(7) and a second group of 49 chickens with 10(8) E. coli. Bacterial enumeration showed two types of bacterial blood distributions. Early after inoculation, the level of bacteraemia(More)
In order to evaluate bacteraemia in chickens previously inoculated intravenously with 10(4)-10(6) Escherichia coli K12, a comparative study of the sensitivity of 500 microliters or 50 microliters venous blood cultures and 50 microliters capillary blood cultures was carried out. Results of 206 blood cultures performed on 20 different chickens were negative(More)
The intracranial pressure (PIC) of two children with Reye's sundrome aged 9 years 7 months and 4 years 7 months was monitored for 9 and 5 days respectively with a subdural device. This provided a useful guide to the treatment that was necessary to reduce the very high intracranial pressure. One of the patients died of uncontrollable raised intracranial(More)
The case report of two brothers who evidenced neurological disorders with peripheral nerve syndrome, pyramidal deficit and bulbar symptoms is described. The diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis was assumed upon the association of these clinical features. Seven and nine years respectively after the beginning of the disease, an increase of the clinical(More)
Capillary and venous diffusion of bacteria were studied in chickens after intravenous inoculation with a strain of Enterococcus faecalis isolated from a case of septicaemia in a human neonate. One group of 13 chickens was inoculated with 10(8) bacteria/animal and another group of 20 chickens with 10(7) bacteria/animal. The level of bacteraemia in the first(More)
