MRC CRASH is a randomised controlled trial (ISRCTN74459797) of the effect of corticosteroids on death and disability after head injury. We randomly allocated 10,008 adults with head injury and a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 14 or less, within 8 h of injury, to a 48-h infusion of corticosteroid (methylprednisolone) or placebo. Data at 6 months were obtained(More)
We present the clinical features, radiological findings and outcome of infants with non-accidental head injury presenting to our department between 2001 and 2003. There were 26 male and 13 female infants, aged between 7 days and 5 months. Presenting symptoms included seizures, vomiting, bulging fontanel, decreased level of consciousness, focal neurological(More)
A case of a 28 year old woman with an intracranial cellular blue naevus (CBN) which was believed to be the extension from a pigmented skin/scalp lesion is reported. There was no similar pigmented skin lesion noted on other parts of her body. Radical intervention, including wide excision of the affected skin of the scalp, removal of the underlying pigmented(More)
The zinc status of 25 alcoholic and 25 non-alcoholic pregnant women was measured and correlated with fetal outcome. The volume index of alcohol consumption and the Michigan Alcoholic Screening Test were used to define alcoholic women. The alcoholic women had significantly lower plasma-zinc levels that the non-alcoholic women (50.7 versus 72.2(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of maternal phencyclidine use on the fetus. Ninety-four neonates with maternal phencyclidine exposure were compared with 94 controls. Maternal phencyclidine use was assessed by questionnaire and repeated urine testing. Mothers of study and control patients were matched for demographic characteristics.(More)
Propoxyphene (Darvon) and acetaminophen (Tylenol) are widely prescribed analgesic agents. Both can cross the placenta, and propoxyphene can produce serious withdrawal symptoms in newborns. Neither propoxyphene nor acetaminophen is considered a teratogen, yet, three malformed infants who were antenatally exposed to propoxyphene have previously been reported.(More)
Data from 2,913 antepartum gravidas screened for alcohol problems during the first year of a large prospective study designed to relate antenatal drinking behavior to infant outcome have been analyzed. The Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (MAST) appears to separate two populations of pregnant patients. Differences between positive and negative MAST(More)
A prospective controlled study of the effect of fetal alcohol on infant development was performed. Twelve infants were identified as possibly having fetal alcohol effects based on the maternal history of alcohol abuse and the neonatal physical examination. Physical characteristics, growth, and development of these infants were compared with those of 12(More)
A case report of an infant whose mother used phencyclidine (PCP, "angel dust") during pregnancy is presented. As a neonate, the infant showed abnormal behavior and an unusual appearance, and later, spastic quadriparesis. Based on previous animal studies, it is likely that this infant had prolonged exposure to PCP as a fetus. His abnormal neonatal behavior(More)
