Echocardiography (ECHO), electrocardiography (ECG), and chest radiography (CXR) were performed in 44 children with kwashiorkor, and 44 age- and sex-matched controls. In patients with kwashiorkor, mean values obtained for end diastolic dimension (29.2 +/- 3.8 mm), end systolic dimension (20.9 +/- 2.8 mm), posterior ventricular wall thickness (5.42 +/- 0.57(More)
An electrocardiogram (ECG), serum electrolytes, serum albumin, haematocrit and cardiothoracic ratio were recorded in 90 Nigerian children with kwashiorkor and 90 age- and sex-matched controls. The ECG abnormalities observed among the study group included sinus tachycardia (91%), low QRS amplitude (100%) and prolonged QTc intervals (17%). Other ECG(More)

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES This study aimed to determine the influence of socioeconomic status on the nutritional status using anthropometric measurements and steady-state(More)
UNLABELLED A previous study on the nephrotic syndrome (NS) in our unit showed that the histological patterns associated with steroid resistance were more common in children over 5 years of age. AIM The aim of the study was to determine the incidence of steroid-responsiveness amongst nephrotic children <or=5 years. SUBJECTS AND METHODS All children with(More)
BACKGROUND There is a paucity of data on the clinicopathologic pattern of kidney disease in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seropositive children from sub-Saharan Africa and non from south west Nigeria.
