Clinical or biochemical findings were reevaluated in 34 pediatric patients with primary renal tubular hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis. The patients were subdivided into two groups. Bartter syndrome (primary renal tubular hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis with normocalciuria or hypercalciuria) was diagnosed in 18 patients with molar urinary calcium/creatinine(More)
Embedded NVMs show an ever growing number of applications as they respond to system requirements with a variable and customizable combination of fast read and write operations, architectural flexibility and low cost. Phase-change memory (PCM) technology has demonstrated its potential in a variety of embedded applications ranging from Smart Cards and(More)
Chromosome banding pattern of bone marrow cells, cell morphology according to the FAB classification, and clinical finding were compared in two groups of adult patients with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia (ANLL): 52 patients occupationally exposed to chemical solvents, insecticides, or petrol products, and 110 patients with no history of occupational(More)
OBJECTIVE To devise a modified version of the Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics/American College of Rheumatology Damage Index (SDI) for use in children and adolescents with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), based on the frequency and distribution of damage in patients with juvenile-onset SLE and the sources of damage that are most(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal therapeutic approach for patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is unknown. In an attempt to improve the results obtained with standard chemotherapy and to decrease the occurrence of opportunistic infections (OI) during chemotherapy and follow-up observed in a previous experience, the(More)
Multicentric Castleman's disease (MCD) and primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) are two B-cell lymphoproliferative diseases associated with Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpes virus/human herpesvirus-8 (KSHV/HHV-8). Although MCD is considered a prelymphoma state, it is not known whether a pathogenetic link exists between MCD and PEL. This paper reports the(More)
Fusarium is an ubiquitous fungus commonly found in soil and on plants. Human infection usually occurs as a result of inoculation of the organism through the body surface, thus causing skin infection, onychomycosis, keratitis, endophthalmitis and arthritis. Dissemination may occur in subjects with underlying immunodeficiency. Among immunocompromised hosts,(More)
PURPOSE An increased risk of high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is observed in patients who are seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Treatment of such patients is complicated by their underlying acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Intensive strategies such as those used in non-HIV-related lymphoma may be poorly tolerated. However,(More)
OBJECTIVE A consensus exists that severe growth hormone deficiency (GHD) in adults is defined by a peak GH response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia (insulin tolerance test, ITT) of less than 3 microg/l based on a cohort of subjects with a mean age of 45 years. DESIGN AND METHODS By considering one of the following two criteria for the diagnosis of(More)
