Seroprevalence of Bartonella henselae and Toxoplasma gondii was investigated among 471 pet cats obtained from seven private animal hospitals in Kanagawa and Saitama Prefectures during the period from May 1994 to June 1995. 'Furthermore, 67 randomly selected from the 471 serum samples were examined for the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) antibody and(More)
During the period from January to March 1995, the authors first isolated Bartonella henselae from the blood of three (9.1%) of 33 domestic cats in Japan. The three cats were a 1.5-year male pet cat-old with urinary retention, and 6-year-old female pound and age-unknown female pet cats with no abnormalities. The blood was taken in a lysis-centrifugation tube(More)
BACKGROUND The occurrence of osteoid-chondral elements in gliosarcoma is extremely rare and has been reported in only two cases. A new, rare case of gliosarcoma with osteosarcomatous differentiation in a 55-year-old man and histogenesis of osteoid-chondral tissue in gliosarcoma is discussed. METHODS Surgically removed tumor tissues were examined(More)
Hydrazino nicotinate (HYNIC) has been shown to produce technetium-99m (99mTc)-labeled proteins and peptides of high stability with high specific activities. However, persistent localization of radioactivity was observed in nontarget tissues such as the liver and kidney after administration of [99mTc]HYNIC-labeled proteins and peptides, which compromises the(More)
A 47-year-old female presented with an unusual cystic meningioma. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a cystic tumor with marked edema in the left parietal region of the brain, resembling a metastatic tumor. The tumor was totally removed. Histological examination revealed meningioma with dense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrates.
Motor and sensory responses induced by trial stimulation were examined before stereotaxically implanting a permanent stimulating electrode for pain relief in 11 patients with intractable pain of central origin. The total number of points eliciting a response when stimulated was 70. The points of stimulation were determined as exactly as possible from(More)
Intracerebral hemorrhage from a brain tumor can mask the cause of bleeding, confuse the diagnosis, and affect the treatment and prognosis. This type of hemorrhage is generally regarded as a rapidly progressive, fulminating disease, sudden in onset, with the outcome being death or profound neurological deficits. Such hemorrhages are demonstrated by CT scan(More)
Several basic anatomical and technical principles helpful in selecting and planning the surgical treatment of the aneurysm of middle cerebral artery were discussed. 1. Superficial sylvian vein (SSV) usually runs on the temporal opercular bank, therefore, frontal opercular side may be preferred in opening the sylvian fissure(SF). In approximately 10% of(More)
