PURPOSE Progress has been made in the treatment of medulloblastoma, the most common childhood malignant brain tumor: However, many long-term survivors will have posttherapy growth hormone insufficiency with resultant linear growth retardation. Growth hormone replacement therapy (GHRT) may significantly improve growth, but there is often reluctance to(More)
Three patients with primary malignant lymphoma of the uterine cervix are reported and the literature is reviewed. All of the patients in the current cases presented with irregular menstruation. Two patients were found to have diffuse histiocytic lymphoma, and one patient had diffuse mixed lymphoma. Histologic diagnosis was confirmed by outside expert(More)
Thirty-nine patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy, prostatic carcinoma, or prostatitis underwent ultrasonography using a transabdominal suprapubic approach. In both benign hypertrophy and prostatitis, the gland was enlarged and exhibited a homogeneous echo pattern, being hypoechoic in prostatitis and either hypo- or hyperechoic in hypertrophy.(More)
Endotracheal aspirates taken serially from mechanically ventilated premature infants born at < 28 weeks gestation between March 1992 and August 1993 were studied to determine whether early cytological changes would be a good predictor of lung damage in infants who develop chronic lung disease (CLD). CLD was diagnosed if the infant required supplemental(More)
Since 1971, 66 patients with small cell carcinoma of the lung--32 with limited and 34 with disseminated disease--have received irradiation to the primary tumor. There were 20 local failures, 90% of which were apparent within 30 weeks of the start of irradiation. Patients were treated with local irradiation only (32), irradiation plus combination(More)
The cases of two children with congenital heart disease and severe opioid dependency who underwent ultrarapid opioid detoxification are presented. This technique entails rapid opioid reversal with the opioid antagonist naloxone while under general anesthesia. The procedures were not technically difficult to perform and both children were successfully(More)
From 1965-1980, 80 patients with adenocarcinoma of the endometrium, FIGO-AJC Stage I, Grade 3 and Stage II received preoperative radiation therapy. Thirty-three patients had Stage I, Grade 3 and 47 had Stage II. All patients were treated with preoperative radiation therapy (intracavitary application, external pelvic irradiation or both) followed by total(More)
From July, 1971, through June, 1974, 170 patients underwent radiation therapy with reduced fractionation at the Milwaukee County General Hospital and the Wood Veterans Administration Hospital. One or two fractions per week were delivered for five to seven weeks to a total dose based on the tolerance of normal tissues predicted by the nominal standard dose(More)
Radiation therapy is widely considered the primary treatment for inoperable "non-small" cell carcinoma of the lung. In clinical investigations, distinction has been infrequent among the histopathologic subtypes of non-small cell carcinoma. Studies have shown significant differences between squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma/large cell carcinoma;(More)
