AIM To investigate psychopathology in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), particularly the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptomatology, using a population-based sampling approach. METHOD Standard questionnaire screen reports were analysed for ASD (Social Responsiveness Scale,(More)
In this paper, a region level based image fusion technique, using wavelet transform, has been implemented and analyzed. The proposed methodology considers regions as the basic feature for representing images and uses region properties for extracting the information from them. A segmentation algorithm is proposed for extracting the regions in an effective(More)
The large numbers of images has posed increasing challenges to computer systems to store and manage data effectively and efficiently. This paper implements a CBIR system using different feature of images through four different methods, two were based on analysis of color feature and other two were based on analysis of combined color and texture feature(More)
Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) is a common autosomal dominant single-gene disorder, in which the co-occurrence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has attracted considerable research interest recently with prevalence estimates of 21-40%. However, detailed characterization of the ASD behavioral phenotype in NF1 is still lacking. This study characterized the(More)
—The key objective of this paper is to investigate a new biometric identifier for forensic and civilian applications. We propose a novel biometric authentication system based on low resolution finger nail plate images. Despite the uniqueness and high stability of the nail plate, its usage as a biometric identifier has not been extensively investigated for(More)
Importance Recent reports have demonstrated a higher incidence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and substantially elevated autistic trait burden in individuals with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). However, important discrepancies regarding the distribution of autistic traits, sex predominance, and association between ASD symptoms and attentional problems(More)
Despite extensive literature, little is known about the mechanisms underlying sex bias in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study investigates the sex differences in ASD associated with neurofibromatosis type 1, a single-gene model of syndromic autism. We analysed data from n = 194 children aged 4–16 years with neurofibromatosis type 1. Sex differences(More)
Noma is a gangrenous disease of the orofacial region that leads to severe facial tissue destruction and is a significant cause of death among children. With the advent of modern antibiotics and improved nutrition, children with noma may survive into adulthood, but must face the challenge of undergoing repair of the sequelae of noma. This report describes a(More)
