Small cell carcinoma of the ovary is a rare and aggressive malignant tumour with a poor prognosis. The authors describe two females, 12 and 13 years old, who presented with advanced stage disease. They were treated with surgical resection, multiagent chemotherapy and high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous bone marrow transplantation. They remain free(More)
Anaphylactic/anaphylactoid reactions to methotrexate are rare. In patients with methotrexate-induced anaphylaxis, discontinuation of treatment may increase the risk of death due to cancer progression. In such patients, desensitization may enable the patient to continue treatment with methotrexate. We report the case of a child with metastatic osteosarcoma,(More)
Our objective was to demonstrate that nephrotic children at disease onset and under high-dose prednisone respond to vaccination with 23-valent pneumococcal vaccine (PV). We compared the serological response after PV in 30 children with nephrotic syndrome, directly after initiation of prednisone therapy (60 mg/m2 body surface area) at disease onset (group(More)
BACKGROUND No sensitive, specific marker able to discriminate favourable or unfavourable outcome of fever of unknown origin (FUO) at diagnosis has been identified. Procalcitonin, a recently assessed infection marker, may be useful in predicting the outcome of FUO. METHODS We conducted a prospective study examining the following variables: age 0.5-22(More)
Gamma/delta T cells (Vgamma9delta2) contribute to innate immunity and exert natural cytotoxicity against a variety of tumors. Using a synthetic phosphoantigen (Bromohydrin Pyrophosphate, BrHPP), we amplified Vgamma9delta2 T cells in vitro from neuroblastoma patients. In the presence of BrHPP and low doses of IL-2, robust proliferation of Vgamma9delta2 T(More)
