A 14-month-old white male was diagnosed as having angiosarcoma of both the liver and spleen. At 17 months he developed pulmonary metastases and died. There was no apparent environmental or hormonal exposure either prenatally or during infancy. The malignant tumor probably arose from its benign counterpart (hemangioendothelioma), which was found in the(More)
PURPOSE To describe the experience with a new lipid-based amphotericin product (amphotericin B colloidal dispersion or ABCD) in children with fever and neutropenia who are at high risk for fungal infection. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-nine children with febrile neutropenia were treated in a prospective, randomized trial comparing ABCD with amphotericin B.(More)
The fine structure of newborn and fetal mouse liver and of newborn kidney cells homozygous for any of three albino alleles known to have multiple biochemical effects was investigated. Electron microscope studies of mutant cells revealed dilation and vesiculation of the rough endoplasmic reticulum in parenchymal liver cells, as well as dilation and other(More)

Further studies of the four radiation-induced lethal albino mutations causing glucose 6-phosphatase deficiency in the mouse have shown that there is also a deficiency of tyrosine aminotransferase in the newborn albino mutants. These two enzymes can be induced in fetal and newborn heterozygous or homozygous normal littermate controls by injection of glucagon(More)
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) applied to children is associated with high risk for organ failure, ICU admission, morbidity and mortality. "Respiratory failure" after HSCT carries a historically grave prognosis. Factors associated with high risk for critical care complications in HSCT patients have been identified, but are dependent on(More)
BACKGROUND Since 2006, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended hepatitis A (HepA) vaccination routinely for children aged 12-23months to prevent hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection. However, a substantial proportion of US children are unvaccinated and susceptible to infection. We present results of economic modeling to assess whether(More)
Pathologic material from 84 children with leukemia or lymphoma who died and were autopsied at the University of Wisconsin Hospital between 1967 and 1980 was reviewed to assess the adverse tissue changes due to the chemotherapy administered. In each case the histopathologic findings were correlated with the chemotherapy given. Individual drug dosage is(More)
