In order to determine the diagnostic value of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and transbronchial lung biopsy (TBLB) in cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP) a prospective study was carried out. Thirty seven consecutive patients (20 males and 17 females) with clinicoradiological features of COP were enrolled in the study. The statistical analyses were(More)
BACKGROUND The effectiveness of a homeopathic syrup on cough has been demonstrated in an adult population in a previous double-blind randomized study. The present prospective observational study investigated children affected by wet acute cough caused by non-complicated URTIs, comparing those who received the homeopathic syrup versus those treated with the(More)
BACKGROUND Very few studies have explored the distinguishing features of severe asthma in childhood in Europe, and only one study was conducted in Southern Europe. The aim of this study was to provide a detailed characterization of children with severe asthma treated in specialized pediatric asthma centers across Italy. METHODS We conducted a web-based(More)
Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is a widespread necrotizing vasculitis affecting small vessels characterized by nonthrombocytopenic purpura. Pulmonary involvement is a rare fatal complication with diffuse alveolar haemorrhage. The objective of this study was to evaluate possible early lung function abnormalities and to establish any relationship with the(More)
Swyer-James syndrome (SJS) is a rare constrictive bronchiolitis that appears to be the result of acute bronchiolitis in infancy or early childhood. In the present study the cytological and immunophenotypical profile of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) was studied in two patients with SJS who showed a different spectrum of clinical outcome. The total BAL yield(More)
CONTEXT Children's cough is a daily concern for most pediatricians. The management of both acute and chronic cough requires a systematic and comprehensive approach. Despite the approved protocols for management, the pediatric assessment of cough and the corresponding prescribing attitude frequently do not fit these protocols, which can be affected by(More)
Owing to their large relatively thermal conductivity, peculiar, nonhydrodynamic features are expected to characterize the acousticlike excitations observed in liquid metals. We report here an experimental study of collective modes in molten nickel, a case of exceptional geophysical interest for its relevance in earth interior science. Our result shed light(More)
