BACKGROUND Women with diabetes mellitus (DM) have asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) more often than women without DM. It is unknown, however, what the consequences of ASB are in these women. OBJECTIVE To compare women with DM with and without ASB for the development of symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs), renal function, and secondary complications(More)
OBJECTIVE Women with diabetes have urinary tract infections (UTIs) more often than women without diabetes. The aim of the present multicenter study was to evaluate which clinical characteristics are associated with the development of a symptomatic UTI during an 18-month follow-up period.

OBJECTIVE To assess and evaluate the short-term results of radio-iodine treatment using an extended dosimetric method. METHODS Sixty-five patients with Graves disease (GD) and 32 patients with toxic multinodular goitre (TMG) received a pre-therapeutic dosage of Na123I. The overall indicative radiation dose (Dind) and the indicative dosage (Aind) was(More)
P atients with diabetes have an increased risk of infections (1,2), with the uri-nary tract being the most prevalent infection site (3,4). In fact, a 1940 autopsy study showed that 18% of the subjects with diabetes had a urinary tract infection (UTI) (5). Many UTIs are asymptomatic, and whether symptomatic UTIs are preceded by asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB)(More)
Mammary carcinoma was diagnosed in two women aged 31 and 38 years after they had been subjected to mantle irradiation for Hodgkin's disease at the ages of 17 and 20 years, respectively. Breast amputation was performed in one case, lumpectomy in the other; the subsequent courses were uncomplicated. During follow-up there was no sign of recurrence. Lifelong(More)
