X-linked lissencephaly with absent corpus callosum and ambiguous genitalia is a newly recognized syndrome responsible for a severe neurological disorder of neonatal onset in boys. Based on the observations of 3 new cases, we confirm the phenotype in affected boys, describe additional MRI findings, report the neuropathological data, and show that carrier(More)
Solitary plasmocytoma (SP) represent only about 5% of plasma cell neoplasia. Most patients have generalized disease, that is, multiple myeloma (MM). Solitary bone plasmocytoma (SBP) is a localized plasma cell tumor and is a very rare disease in young patients. We reported here, a case of SPB in a 14-year-old girl with a 10-year disease-free survival after(More)
AIM To evaluate long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes in children with prenatally diagnosed, isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed data for 20 children born between January 1991 and November 2003 in the Haute-Normandie region of France with a prenatal diagnosis of isolated ACC.

Clinical motor seizures, most often unifocal, are the nearly constant disclosing symptom confirmed by focal EEG abnormalities. A multifactorial physiopathology is usual, including genetic and perinatal environmental factors. In the(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare components of the fibrinolytic cascade in newborns of gestational age ranging from extreme prematurity to full term, at birth and for the next 10 days, and in their mothers at delivery. STUDY DESIGN We studied 10 extremely preterm neonates, 10 very preterm neonates, 10 moderately preterm neonates, 10 full-term neonates, and their(More)
OBJECTIVES Very premature birth carries a high risk of neurocognitive disabilities and learning disorders. Acquiring sufficient speech skills is crucial to good school performance. METHODS A prospective study was conducted in 2006 to evaluate speech development in 55 children born very prematurely in 2000 at the Rouen Teaching Hospital (Rouen, France),(More)
In France, screening for cytomegalovirus infection (CMV) during pregnancy is not recommended in routine. The transmission of CMV through breastmilk from mothers to preterm infants is frequent (15-20%). The frequency of neuro-sensorial handicap related to congenital CMV infection in very preterm infants is not well documented. We report the case of a female(More)
