Urinary tract anomalies were prospectively investigated with ultrasound in 29 children with functional constipation. These children were compared before and after treatment with 451 age matched healthy controls without constipation. The bladder residue and upper renal tract dilatation after micturition were significantly increased in the group with(More)
AIMS To determine: (1) whether children diagnosed with a urinary tract infection (UTI) visited their general practitioner (GP) more frequently before the diagnosis of UTI was established compared to children never diagnosed with a UTI; and (2) whether those children with evidence of renal scarring at their first diagnosed UTI visited their GPs more(More)
AIM To assess the outcome of imaging investigations carried out in children with urinary tract infection (UTI), to compare the investigations with national guidelines, and to assess the impact on management. METHODS Retrospective review of inpatients and outpatients, aged 0-12 years, referred to the University Hospital of Wales Healthcare Trust between(More)
In 75 schoolgirls aged 5-11 with untreated covert coliform bacteriuria who were followed up to 4 years, infection cleared in 16 (21%), cleared and recurred in 37 (50%) and persisted in 22 (29%). Clearance of bacteriuria was significantly (P less than .05) more frequent in girls with normal radiological findings than in those with abnormal findings. In 31(More)
Serum is commonly treated with potassium periodate to destroy nonspecific inhibitors of influenza virus hemagglutination. We have observed, however, that such treatment of serum without pre-existing inhibitor produced high titers of inhibitor against certain strains of influenza virus. Inhibitor was induced in the serum from several different animal species(More)
Fresh urinary isolates were examined by immunofluorescence with polyclonal rabbit antibodies against type 1 and P fimbriae. This procedure showed P-fimbriate Escherichia coli in 22 of 24 samples from patients with asymptomatic bacteriuria, 24 of 26 samples from patients with cystitis, and 6 of 6 samples from patients with pyelonephritis. Type 1 fimbriae(More)
RATIONALE, AIMS AND OBJECTIVES It is suspected that childhood urinary tract infection (UTI) remains under-diagnosed in primary care, and is consequently the cause of subsequent morbidity from renal scarring, hypertension and eventual renal failure. Practice-based education and service developments were undertaken to try to improve the detection of childhood(More)
