We present observations of L1014, a dense core in the Cygnus region previously thought to be starless, but data from the Spitzer Space Telescope shows the presence of an embedded source. We propose a model for this source that includes a cold core, heated by the interstellar radiation field, and a low-luminosity internal source. The low luminosity of the(More)
A 40-year-old patient with long-standing Crohn's ileocolitis in remission experienced cyclic neutropenia with a periodicity of 14 days. He was not receiving immunosuppressive or myelosuppressive therapy. The patient had Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia resulting from central catheter infection, which was refractory to antibiotic therapy during the period of(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to examine the suitability of nurse practitioners for assessing and managing urgent clinical problems presenting in primary care. METHODS Patients registered at a suburban group practice presenting with acute medical problems were offered the choice of seeing a GP or a nurse practitioner. The outcomes of 1000(More)
BACKGROUND A retrospective case-control study was conducted to investigate risk factors for endophthalmitis following routine intraocular surgery. METHODS A review was performed of consecutive cases of endophthalmitis from three teaching hospitals in the western Sydney region and matched controls from the same institutions between 1996 and 1998. RESULTS(More)
Renewed interest in the neovascularity of atherosclerotic plaques has followed the work of Imparato et al., which confirmed the importance of carotid intraplaque hemorrhage in the production of symptomatic extracranial vascular disease. We have studied the detailed histology of 91 carotid atheromatous plaques with particular regard to hemorrhage and(More)
We propose that inward, subsonic flows arise from the local dissipation of turbulent motions in molecular clouds. Such " turbulent cooling flows " may account for recent observations of spatially extended inward motions toward dense cores. These pressure-driven flows may arise from various types of turbulence and dissipation mechanisms. For the example of(More)
Two cases of Langerhans' cell histiocytosis of the frontal bone are presented. This condition was previously known as eosinophilic granuloma and rarely involves the orbit but may be associated with widespread and life-threatening disease. Clinical, radiological and histopathological features are presented. A discussion of the light and electron microscopic(More)
We present observations of 10.6 square degrees of the Perseus molecular cloud at 24, 70, and 160 µm with the Spitzer Space Telescope Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS). The image mosaics show prominent, complex extended emission dominated by illuminating B stars on the East side of the cloud, and by cold filaments of 160 µm emission on the West(More)
