BACKGROUND Renal failure (RF) is reported to occur in 11-49% of the patients with decompensated end-stage liver disease (ESLD) and has been associated with increased mortality, particularly in the occurrence of hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) type 1. AIMS To evaluate the frequency and outcome of RF in patients admitted to the hospital due to decompensated ESLD(More)
Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) consists of sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy. Extranodal involvement occurs in up to 43% of cases. However, isolated soft tissue RDD is rare. Isolated mediastinal RDD is exceedingly rare, and there have been only three previous reports. Involvement of the posterior mediastinum in RDD has been reported only in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the frequency of different autoantibodies in a group of patients with Jaccoud's arthropathy (JA) secondary to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with those without JA. METHODS A group of SLE patients with JA was compared with another group of SLE patients without this complication, matched by age and gender, regarding the presence of(More)

CONTEXT Treatment of hepatorenal syndrome type 1 (HRS-1) with splanchnic vasoconstrictors and high-dose albumin has been associated with reversal of renal failure in approximately 60% to 80% of the cases in pilot or uncontrolled studies. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of treatment of HRS-1 with terlipressin and high-dose albumin. METHODS All patients(More)
Jaccoud’s arthropathy (JA) was initially described as a secondary complication to rheumatic fever (RF). However, most recently described cases are associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). At least in RF, this articular complication has been observed to occur in association with valvular heart disease. The aim of this work is to investigate the(More)
