We present an infant with 2 simultaneous, but histologically distinct tumors with a novel germline p53 mutation. The child was found to have a paraspinal neuroblastoma, a concurrent adrenal cortical carcinoma, and an I162F p53 gene mutation. We review the associations of germline p53 mutations (or Li-Fraumeni syndrome) with both tumor types and the current(More)
The Pasco Gram-negative identification system was evaluated for use with nonfermenting organisms. Of 127 isolates tested, 109 (86%) were correctly identified to the species level. A total of 91% (93 of 102 isolates) of the Pseudomonas-Xanthomonas group and the Acinetobacter group were correctly identified to the species level. The system was found to be(More)
