Dermatophytoses are common fungal infections caused by dermatophytes but there are few data about this condition in the childhood. 137 children below the age of 12 and clinically diagnosed as tineas were investigated prospectively at Instituto de Puericultura e Pediatria, Rio de Janeiro, from 1994 to 1999. Hair, skin/nails scraping and pus swabs were(More)
Low salivary flow rates are associated with higher oral Candida spp. counts, which may predispose to oral candidiasis. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of stimulating salivary flow rates with that of a regimen of chlorhexidine mouth rinse on the intensity of Candida colonization in patients with reduced salivary flow rates. Thirty-one(More)
Tinea nigra is a superficial fungal infection caused by Hortaea werneckii. It typically affects young individuals as an asymptomatic unilateral macule, from light brown to black on the palms and soles, mainly in tropical and subtropical regions. In 1997, Gupta et al. [Br J Dermatol 1997;137:483-484] described the dermoscopic characteristics of tinea nigra.(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the experience and results in the diagnosis and catheter ablation of atrioventricular accessory (AP) pathways during the initial electrophysiologic study. DESIGN We performed catheter ablation at the time of an initial electrophysiologic study in 22 consecutive patients (12 W and 10 M, mean age 42 +/- 15) with Wolff-Parkinson-White(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the safety and efficacy of radiofrequency atrio-ventricular junctional ablation. DESIGN Consecutive group of patients with refractory atrial tachyarrhythmias in whom catheter ablation of the atrio-ventricular junction was performed. SETTING Cardiology Department at University Hospital. INTERVENTIONS Atrio-ventricular junctional(More)
Our purpose was to assess the efficacy and safety of intravenous ATP for the acute termination of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. There were 14 women and 10 men, aged 38 +/- 15 years. Three patients had evidence of structural heart disease (Ebstein's anomaly associated to atrial septal defect, operated mitral stenosis with insertion of a mechanical(More)
