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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Children with history of broncho-pulmonary dysplasia (BPD) often suffer from growth failure and lung sequelae. The main objective of this study was to test the role of pulmonary obstruction on resting energy expenditure (REE) and nutritional status in BPD. Seventy-one children with BPD (34 boys and 37 girls) and 30 controls (20 boys and 10 girls) aged 4-8(More)
UNLABELLED Perforated gastric ulcer is unusual in children. We report a case in a girl with an unexpected evolution. CASE REPORT A 13-year-old girl was admitted for abdominal pain. She had no particular personal history but her father had a perforated ulcer. On admission she was not painful, her abdomen was soft on palpation. The white blood cell count(More)
We present the first report of an association between hydrocephalus with stenosis of the aqueduct of Sylvius (HSAS) and a specific form of congenital idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIIP) in an infant. Diagnosis of HSAS was suspected during the neonatal period because of a severely dilated ventricular system associated with bilateral adducted(More)
