In a retrospective study on heart murmurs in healthy newborns we reviewed data concerning all newborns admitted in our nursery in the year 1990 (1387 newborns: male 699, female 688). An heart murmur was recorded in 106 (7.6%); in 32 of these (30%) the murmur was still audible at discharge; in 18 cases (17%) a congenital heart defect was diagnosed. Our data(More)
Three cases of neonatal adrenal hemorrhage are described. They presented different clinical findings. Ultrasonography was the investigation of choice. It showed different initial patterns: anechoic in one case, hyperechoic in the others. The literature is reviewed. Usefulness of echography in the diagnosis of adrenal hemorrhage is stressed.
Plasma fibronectin (FN) concentrations were measured by an immunonephelometric method in cord blood from 76 healthy newborns (45 full term and 31 preterm), in 181 healthy children, from 1 month–15 years old, divided by age into seven groups and in 81 control adults. FN levels in newborns were 35% of those of adults. There was no difference between plasma FN(More)
The case is reported of a dizygotic twin infant of a diabetic mother with transient hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The clinical course and eco-ecg reports are described. The etiopathogenesis is discussed since no evidence of cardiomyopathy was found in the second twin. The importance of a timely diagnosis for a correct therapy is emphasized.
We found no significant differences in mean total and free tryptophan concentrations in sera of healthy, full-term infants fed cow's milk formula and healthy, full-term infants who were breast-fed. Serum tryptophan concentrations were measured 1 h after feeding when the infants were 2 and 6 days of age. In this study cow's milk formula compared favourably(More)
