This study sought to assess the effect of giardiasis on growth of young children. In Salvador, northeast Brazil, 597 children initially aged 6 to 45 months were followed for a year in 1998/9, measured anthropometrically thrice, every 6 months, and monitored for diarrhoea prevalence twice weekly. Stool samples were collected and examined during the second(More)
We report for the first time in Brazil, a patient from whom an Enterococcus faecalis VanA phenotype was isolated. Glycopeptide resistance is not commonly observed in Enterococcus faecalis, so this finding is of great concern since this species is responsible for 90% of enterococcal infections in Brazil. The isolate was recovered from a surveillance rectal(More)
BACKGROUND Rickettsial infections are re-emerging. In India, they are now being reported from several areas where they were previously unknown. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to describe the epidemiology, clinical profile and outcome of serologically-confirmed scrub typhus and spotted fever among children in a tertiary care hospital in(More)
BACKGROUND The ECG, clinical, and electrophysiologic profiles of patients with a fasciculoventricular pathway are well described. Fasciculoventricular pathways occurring in the setting of glycogen storage cardiomyopathy possess unique features. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical, ECG, and electrophysiologic characteristics of(More)
BACKGROUND The electrophysiologic characteristics of decrementally conducting accessory pathways (APs) are well described; however, little is known about decrementally conducting APs caused by the radiofrequency ablation of a rapidly conducting AP. OBJECTIVE To report the clinical, electrocardiographic, and electrophysiologic characteristics of 6 patients(More)
