Autosomal recessive Robinow syndrome is caused by mutations in ROR2 and is characterized by short stature, mesomelic limb shortening, brachydactyly, vertebral abnormalities, and a characteristic "fetal face" dysmorphology. We report the clinical and molecular studies on two adults with this condition. Besides typical skeletal and facial features, one(More)
Fifty-six adult patients with newly diagnosed acquired severe aplastic anemia (SAA) received horse antilymphocyte globulin (ALG), cyclosporin A (CyA), methylprednisolone (Mpred), granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) as first-line therapy. The median age was 34 (range, 17-72) and median neutrophil count 0.280 x 10(9)/L. Trilineage hematologic(More)
This report describes a new subgroup of familial visceral myopathy. Three patients from within this family were admitted to the hospital with pseudo-obstruction. Barium x-ray, abdominal plain film, esophageal manometry, colonoscopy, gastroscopy, and echocardiography were performed in all siblings for diagnostic evaluation. Two of our patients had surgery(More)
OBJECTIVE The object of this study was to investigate the genotoxic effect of acute overexposure to combustion products originating from coal or wood stoves in patients presenting with acute carbon monoxide intoxication. STUDY DESIGN In a prospective study, we analyzed the frequency of sister chromatid exchange and the carboxyhemoglobin concentration in(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the genetic instability of peripheral blood lymphocytes from patients diagnosed with oral lichen planus (OLP) by investigation of frequencies of micronuclei (MN) and sister chromatid exchange (SCE). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 22 newly diagnosed and untreated patients with OLP of same severity(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is characterised by the clonal proliferation and accumulation of neoplastic B-lymphocytes. The median age of the patients is 65 years, and more men than women are affected. The overwhelming majority of CLLs are of B-cell origin. Chromosomal aberrations have been detected in more than 50% of the B-cells obtained from(More)
Long-term use of Cyclosporin A (CsA) and Tacrolimus is known to yield serious untoward side effects including nephrotoxicity, neurotoxicity, and malignant tumor formation. Sister chromatid exchange (SCE) is used to assess the genotoxic potential of various agents. A total of 37 postrenal transplant patients receiving either CsA (n = 20) or Tacrolimus (n =(More)
