BACKGROUND With the rising mean age of lung cancer patients, the number of patients with serious co-morbidity at diagnosis is increasing. As a result, co-morbidity may become an important factor in both the choice of treatment and survival. We studied the prevalence of serious co-morbidity among newly diagnosed lung cancer patients and its association with(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of serious concomitant conditions at diagnosis among unselected patients with cancer, increasingly older in industrialized countries. About 34,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients were recorded in the Eindhoven Cancer Registry between 1993 and 1996; subsequently data on serious co-morbidity,(More)
We report the case history of a patient in whom we diagnosed purulent lymphadenitis due to Salmonella typhi, a late complication of a febris typhoidea that occurred 11 yr previously. We also review the literature concerning complications of Salmonella infections, and particularly discuss their hematogenous spread and lodgment.
m-Cresol and methyl p-hydroxybenzoate are preservatives in insulin preparations. As previously reported, in diabetic patients on continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion, users of insulin-containing m-cresol had significantly more inflamed infusion sites than users of insulin with methyl p-hydroxybenzoate. This study assessed the influence of insulin with(More)
The most common complication of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) is inflammation at the infusion site. To determine possible risk factors to these infections, we studied several factors in the management of CSII and compared the pyogenic skin inflammation rate, the carriage rate of Staphylococcus aureus, and the HbA1 level among 50(More)
