More than 95% of patients with hepatoma(More)
The association of marfanoid habitus (MH) and intellectual disability (ID) has been reported in the literature, with overlapping presentations and genetic heterogeneity. A hundred patients (71 males and 29 females) with a MH and ID were recruited. Custom-designed 244K array-CGH (Agilent®; Agilent Technologies Inc., Santa Clara, CA) and MED12, ZDHHC9, UPF3B,(More)
A case/control study of patients with primary hepatic carcinoma (P.H.C.) and their families was carried out in Dakar, Senegal. 28 P.H.C. cases were matched by age,sex, and ethnic group with 28 controls. Serum was collected from cases, controls, parents (28 mothers, 27 fathers) of cases, parents of controls, 71 siblings of cases, and 58 siblings of controls.(More)
Immediate hemodynamic results of percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty were compared in two consecutive series of unselected patients from the same institution undergoing valvuloplasty with the double-balloon (161 patients) or the Inoue balloon (71 patients) technique.

Small supernumerary marker chromosomes (sSMCs) are structurally abnormal chromosomes that cannot be characterized by karyotype. In many prenatal cases of de novo sSMC, the outcome of pregnancy is difficult to predict because the euchromatin content is unclear. This study aimed to determine the presence or absence of euchromatin material of 39 de novo(More)
Desferrioxamine (DFO) plus ferrioxamine (FO) variations and alterations in plasma and urinary iron (Fe) levels were investigated in eight children with thalassaemia major during a 12-h s.c. DFO infusion at a dose of 40 mg/kg body weight. During the infusion, blood samples were regularly taken and total urine was also regularly collected in all patients. In(More)
We report the case of a 26-month-old boy with mental retardation, facial dysmorphism, childhood feeding difficulties, short stature, bilateral cryptorchidism, micropenis, and heart defect. Endocrinal evaluation revealed complete growth hormone deficiency (GHD) and gonadotropic deficiency, and pituitary magnetic resonance imaging showed partial pituitary(More)
