In order to determine the genomic heterogeneity of ovine lentiviruses, we analysed eight isolates from naturally infected sheep from one geographical region of France. A 475 nt fragment in the region of the pol gene coding for reverse transcriptase was amplified by RT-PCR from RNA directly extracted from uncultured bronchoalveolar lavage cells. The(More)
Right to left shunt through a patent foramen ovale after pneumonectomy is a rare complication. Its clinical presentation is a severe dyspnea with posture dependency. The diagnosis is easily confirmed by contrast echocardiography. The purpose of this article is to expose the interest of interventional catheterization and transcatheter closure. This method(More)
The visna-maedi lentivirus can induce an interstitial pneumonitis in sheep, and provides a convenient example to study natural or experimental lentiviral pathology. We wanted to determine whether high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is able to detect early morphological changes following lentiviral infection in the lungs. Spontaneously infected adult(More)
We report a case of a patient of forty two years who was admitted with a chronic cough and had a left hilar "tumour". Scanning showed a hilar opacity with an air bronchogram. Fibreoptic bronchoscopy did not succeed in achieving a precise diagnosis, the biopsies showed no sign of malignancy. An open lung biopsy was necessary to establish the diagnosis of(More)
Docetaxel, a new chemotherapeutic agent, has demonstrated activity in non-small cell lung cancer and breast cancer. Toxicities associated with treatment using docetaxel include hypersensitivity reactions and fluid retention, which can be prevented by pretreatment with corticosteroids. We describe herein two cases of acute interstitial pneumonitis after(More)
