OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients with hematogenous vertebral osteomyelitis (HVO) caused by gram-negative bacteria (GNB). METHODS We conducted a retrospective chart review of adult patients with HVO from three tertiary-care hospitals over a 7-year period. RESULTS Of the 313 microbiologically diagnosed HVO cases,(More)
Mos 45,X/46,X,r(?) in 4 patients with Turner's syndrome and no signs of virilization, and in one pair of monozygotic twins, one of them with clitoral hypertrophy, was studied using combined cytogenetic techniques and specially G-11 staining for the characterization of the X or Y origin of the rings. In all 6 patients the ring was G-11 positive, attesting(More)
Herein, we describe a bacteremia caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae that presented as liver abscesses. The patient had no risk factors for disseminated gonococcal infection. Periodic fever, skin rashes, and papules were present and the results of an abdominal computed tomography scan indicated the presence of small liver abscesses. The results of blood culture(More)
A pair of monozygotic twins with Turner's syndrome was studied using combined cytogenetic techniques and a mos 45,X/46,X,r(Y) was demonstrated in both. One of the twins presented clitoral hypertrophy. Surgery was performed and uterus, bilateral Fallopian tubes, bilateral epididymis and bilateral streak gonads with a small nodule of testicular tissue(More)
mos 45,X/46,X,Y with no bright fluorescence was studied in 4 patients presenting variable phenotypes, from Turner's syndrome, with or without virilization, to ambiguous external genitalia, with combined cytogenetic techniques. G-11 staining demonstrated, in all cases, that the abnormal Y was a dic(Yp). Considerations about the possibility that some of the(More)
Recently in this Journal, de Die-Smulders et all reported a father and son both affected with BPES (blepharophimosis, ptosis, epicanthus inversus syndrome) and carrying a balanced 3; 1(q21;q23) translocation in the absence of mental retardation. These findings provided new evidence for the location of the BPES gene at 3q2, as previously suggested by(More)
Gastric neuroendocrine tumors are rare; however, the incidence has recently increased due to the increasing use of upper endoscopy. Neuroendocrine tumors arise from the excess proliferation of enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells. The proliferative changes of enterochromaffin cells evolve through a hyperplasia-dysplasia-neoplasia sequence that is believed to(More)
