We diagnosed phakomatosis pigmentovascularis type IIIb in an 11-month-old baby who had a giant nevus spilus, a nevus flammeus, and moyamoya disease. Development of the patient was normal until 6 months of age when he developed a sudden onset of focal seizures and left hemiparesis. This patient represents the sixth case of phakomatosis pigmentovascularis(More)
We measured immunoreactive endothelin-1 in plasma of a patient with malignant hemangioendothelioma. A 74-year-old female first visited our clinic in July, 1989. Physical examination revealed reddish nodule measured 4 x 5 x 1 cm and erythematous plaque with erosion on her scalp. A biopsy specimen showed extensive proliferation of atypical tumor cells(More)
To examine possible alterations in myosin light chain phosphorylation in hyperplastic arteries, rabbit strips from right hyperplastic and left normal control carotid arteries were used for experiments 6 weeks after the ballooning procedure. When the hyperplastic artery was stimulated with various concentrations of K+ (10, 20, 30, 40 and 60 mM), the maximal(More)
Crusted scabies, an unusual clinical variant of human scabies mite infestation, is usually reported in cases of gross debility, mental deficiency, or immunosuppression. We report here the occurrence of crusted scabies in a 40-year-old man with acquired selective IgA deficiency suspected to be caused by long-term medication with phenytoin for epilepsy.
Oxidative stress affects bone turnover. Preventative effects of antioxidants such as vitamin E on reduced bone mineral density and fractures associated with aging, osteoporosis, and smoking have been examined in animals and humans. The effects of vitamin E (α-tocopherol; αT) on bone health have yielded conflicting and inconclusive results from animal(More)
Semotiadil fumarate (SD-3211), a Ca2+ channel blocker of benzothiazine derivative and its (S)-(-)-enantiomer (SD-3212), inhibited K(+)- and norepinephrine (NE)-induced contractions in isolated rat aortas. Inhibition of NE contraction induced by both drugs was greater than that induced by diltiazem or bepridil, whereas inhibition of K(+)-contraction was(More)
