BACKGROUND Until recently, only two cases of acute adrenal crisis associated with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) had been reported worldwide. We identified four additional cases and sought to survey the frequency of this side effect in the United Kingdom. METHODS Questionnaires were sent to all consultant paediatricians and adult endocrinologists(More)
The association of intracranial hypertension and arteriovenous malformations is described in two patients. Both patients had the typical clinical features of pseudotumour cerebri and were found to have intracranial arteriovenous malformations on arteriography. The mechanism of raised intracranial pressure in patients with arteriovenous malformations is(More)
We hypothesized that radiographically-assessed hyperinflation in bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is related to the degree of oxygenation impairment. Our objective was to explore the relation of chest radiographic thoracic area (CRTA) with right-to-left shunt, right shift of the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve and ventilation/perfusion ratio (VA/Q) in(More)
The ability to reliably obtain serial determinations of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) over time in small animals using simple and inexpensively constructed platinum-wire microelectrodes has been investigated. Repeated measurements of local cortical flow were obtained on a daily basis using the hydrogen clearance technique in a group of 18 animals, in(More)
