Serial ultrasound examinations were performed on 31 neonates with birth weights of less than 1,500 g for the detection of renal calcifications. Renal calcifications occurred in 20 (64%) of the infants at a mean age of 39.3 +/- 26.7 days of life. Infants with renal calcifications had shorter gestations (28.2 +/- 1.8 v 31 +/- 1.4 weeks, P less than .004) and(More)
From 1960 to 1980 at Memorial Hospital Medical Center--Miller Children's Hospital, the mean birth weight for term-size neonates increased from 3381 to 3458 g inspite of increases in ethnic groups known to have smaller neonates. More significantly, the incidence of macrosomic neonates (birth weight greater than 4000 g) increased from 7.0 to 10.7%. Because of(More)
Two cases concerning newborn infants whose mothers used phencyclidine (PCP) during pregnancy are described. The neonatal symptoms of maternal PCP abuse were jitteriness, hypertonicity, vomiting, and one case of diarrhea. In both infants, PCP was detected in the urine during the first few days of life. Both infants were successfully treated with(More)
Polio antibody titers were determined in 29 children with ALL in various clinical stages, including a group of five patients in continuous remission for over five years and who, at the time of study, were off all therapy for at least six months. Regardless of the stage of disease, no detectable gamma M response was elicited. The five children described(More)
The purpose of our study was to establish the guidelines for interpreting neonatal flash visual-evoked potentials (FVEPs) by examining the correlation between maturation of the waveforms and conceptual age (CA). We retrospectively analyzed 220 consecutive neonatal FVEPs performed on premature and full-term infants. The CA of the participants ranged from 28(More)
Clinical features and assisted ventilation (AV) aspects of 10 neonates with early onset group B streptococcus (GBS) septicemia were compared with those of 12 randomly selected newborns with severe respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). Initial chest radiograph in the GBS group was interpreted as RDS in seven of 10 cases. Although 9 of the 10 neonates with(More)
