The translation of "next-generation" sequencing directly to the clinic is still being assessed but has the potential for genetic diseases to reduce costs, advance accuracy, and point to unsuspected yet treatable conditions. To study its capability in the clinic, we performed whole-exome sequencing in 118 probands with a diagnosis of a pediatric-onset(More)
Pediatric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) constitutes 16% of pediatric malignancies reported to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Cairo. Since July 1985, we have treated 39 previously untreated pediatric NHL cases younger than 16 years of age (mean, 7.6 years) with a new protocol consisting of alternating cycles: regimen A comprised cyclophosphamide,(More)
Pediatric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) constitutes 16 per cent of pediatric malignancies reported to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Cairo. The adopted treatment for these cases was, from 1982 to July 1985, a modified St Jude's regimen consisting of: vincristine, cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, prednisone and intrathecal methotrexate for the first 6(More)
A consecutive group of 242 children with Hodgkin's disease attending the National Cancer Institute, Cairo during the years 1975-1980 were studied. Males predominated representing 76.85% of cases. Age distribution was similar to other African countries with an earlier presentation than the US. The most common histopathologic types was the mixed cellularity(More)
The Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) is a component of the Child Survival Project (CSP) whose objectives are to reduce the incidence rates of six childhood diseases (Measles, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, Tuberculosis, Poliomyelitis) and to reduce the number of infant deaths from those diseases by increasing effective vaccination coverage. In 1991,(More)
Rhombencephalosynapsis (RES) is a rare hindbrain malformation that could occur in isolation or as a part of a syndrome for example, Gómez-López-Hernández syndrome (GLH) or VACTERL-H. We identified male patient with severe RES. Ventriculomegaly, agenesis of septum pellucidum, very thin corpus callosum with interhemispheric cyst were additional neuroimaging(More)
The study was done to identify which parameters are most useful to be used for nutrition assessment in pediatric cancer patients. The study included 70 pediatric cancer patients (48 males and 22 females) age 4-10 years. Patients were classified into 3 groups based on type of cancer (Lymphoma, leukemia and rhabdomyosarcoma). The period of the study was(More)
