A case of rhino-orbitocerebral mucormycosis is presented, illustrating the serious nature of this disease. Clinical features and their pathological correlations are demonstrated. The need for a high index of clinical suspicion, and an early biopsy of the affected area is emphasized so that the benefits of early diagnosis and therapy may be gained.
UNLABELLED Ataxia-telangiectasia (AT) is a multi-systemic disease caused by mutational inactivation of the ATM gene. We report a retrospective study of lung disease in 15 patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS A diagnosis of AT was made if the patient met the following criteria: neurological features and at least one the following: oculo-cutaneous telangiectasia,(More)
Improved survival rates for extreme prematurity have been accompanied by an increase in the incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). The objective of this study was to assess factors associated with long-term nutritional and pulmonary function outcomes. The study was a cross-sectional study of 52 children who had been born prematurely, had experienced(More)
BACKGROUND Successful parathyroidectomy depends on recognition and excision of all hyperfunctioning parathyroid glands. Because histologic definition is limited, multiglandular disease (MGD) is usually determined grossly by means of estimation of gland size and the experience of the surgeon, resulting in frequency varying from 8% to 33%. Normalization of(More)
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia remains a frequent complication of extreme prematurity. In preterm neonates catch-up and pulmonary alveolar growth occur during the first two years of life. However 10 to 25% of preterm infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia are under-nourished after two years of age, and 30 to 60% of them also suffer from persistent airway(More)
BACKGROUND There are few data concerning the risk of contamination of enteral feeding systems via gastrostomy in children, and none for conditions that pertain to home-based care. METHODS To investigate the risk of contamination of enteral feeding systems during the home-based care of 20 children receiving gastrostomy tube feeding, five samples were taken(More)
UNLABELLED Since children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia often suffer from malnutrition and growth failure, evaluation of body composition is a very important tool to nutritional support. The aim of this study was to compare assessment of fat-mass (FM) and fat-free mass (FFM), evaluated by bio-impedancemetry and anthropometry compared to(More)
Ataxia-telangiectasia (AT) is an autosomal recessive inherited disease caused by mutational inactivation of the ATM gene. It is a multisystemic disease, characterized by progressive neurological dysfunction, especially in the cerebellum, oculo-cutaneous telangiectasia, immunodeficiency, recurrent sino-pulmonary infections and high incidence of neoplasms.(More)
OBJECTIVE Children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) often suffer from growth failure because of disturbances in energy balance with an increase of resting energy expenditure (REE). Evaluation of REE is a useful tool for nutritional management. Indirect calorimetry is an elective method for measuring REE, but it is time consuming and requires rigorous(More)
We report a case of a patient who had a subclinical rubella infection in the first trimester of pregnancy which resulted in the delivery of a baby suffering from congenital rubella. Rubella virus vaccine, liver attenuated (Cendevax) vaccine had been administered to the mother nearly three years before, with proven seroconversion from a rubella(More)
