OBJECTIVES The transfusion-related acute lung injury frequency was for a long time underestimated since it lacked both a widely accepted clinical definition and a comprehensive etiologic description. Recent clinical and biological data have underlined its frequency and have allowed a better understanding of its mechanisms. CURRENT KNOWLEDGE AND KEY POINTS… (More)
A novel technique for inserting basestations on an ad-hoc basis is investigated in this paper. Sector retraction and extension is used to reshape the network coverage area. Basestations are generally added to the network whenever there is a need to meet an increasing capacity demand. The replanning exercise can be both costly and time consuming. Situation… (More)
OBJECTIVES This study was planned to define the clinical profile of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients having renal amyloidosis, to identify the factors responsible for development of amyloidosis, to detect the time period between onset of amyloidosis and PTB, and analyze clinical features of amyloidosis in PTB patients for early diagnosis and timely… (More)

These attacks are performed on some prestigious web sites like Yahoo, Amazon, and various cloud service providers. The severity of the attack is very high as a result the… (More)
The simultaneous occurrence of pulmonary carcinoid tumor and tuberculosis is very rare. A case of pulmonary carcinoid tumor is described in a 35-year-old male patient who had concomitant ipsilateral pulmonary tuberculosis. The importance of dual pathological diagnosis in clinical practice is also emphasized.
Drug-induced respiratory diseases are difficult to diagnose and therefore usually not identified, probably underestimated and under-reported. We report a case of diphenylhydantoin/phenytoin-induced chronic pulmonary disease in a 62-year-old male patient presenting with progressive dyspnea, eosinophilia, and pulmonary abnormalities. The importance of drug… (More)
