We discuss an application of rough set tools for modeling networks of classifiers induced from data and ontology of concepts delivered by experts. Such networks allow us to develop strategies for automated planning of a treatment of infants with respiratory illness. We report results of experiments with the networks of classifiers used in automated planning(More)
BACKGROUND Prophylactic treatment with prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors (PSI) is potentially harmful. Moreover, long-term benefits of prophylactic use of indomethacin or ibuprofen are not proven. Early treatment of a high-risk population is alternative to the routine prophylactic use of PSI, but it remains unclear which newborn is at greatest risk for(More)
X-linked lissencephaly with ambiguous genitalia syndrome (XLAG) (OMIM #3000215) is a rare, severe malformation of the brain cortex with abnormal neuronal migration caused by mutations of the ARX gene. All the reported patients with lissencephaly are males who presented with a posterior-to-anterior gradient, moderately increased thickness of the brain(More)
BACKGROUND Thanatophoric dwarfism is a lethal bone dysplasia causing severe disturbance in body proportions, shortening and deformation of the long bones and maldevelopment of the chest leading to severe respiratory failure and early death. The disease is caused usually by de novo mutation in the gene of fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3).(More)
Cobb syndrome (cutaneomeningospinal angiomatosis) is a rare phacomatosis characterized by vascular abnormality of the spinal cord associated with a vascular naevus at the same metamere. We report the case of a newborn with Cobb syndrome, diagnosed by sonography of the spine and later confirmed by MRI. In neonates and young infants with dermatomal cutaneous(More)
OBJECTIVE VLBW infants have a developmental lactase deficiency in the gut. The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of lactose containing and lactose free diets on prevalence of feeding intolerance and Gram negative sepsis in VLBW infants. METHODS 80 newborns with mean (+/- SEM) birth weight 1091 +/- 25 g and gestational age 28.5 +/- 0.24 wks(More)
Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) are modern tools for data analysis. They can compete with commonly used statistical methods. Till the date they were not used for modeling continuous parameters in medicine. The aim of this paper is to assess accuracy of ANN in forecasting blood gases values in preterm infants with respiratory distress. The study was(More)
