The American Rheumatism Association sub-committe on classification criteria for gout analyzed data from more than 700 patients with gout, pseudogout, rheumatoid arthritis, or septic arthritis. Criteria for classifying a patient as having gout were a) the presence of characteristic urate crystals in the joint fluid, and/or b) a topus proved to contain urate(More)
Patients receiving allopurinol are at risk of developing the allopurinol hypersensitivity syndrome, an immunologic reaction to the drug, characterized by multiple abnormalities such as fever, rash, decreased renal function, hepatocellular injury, leukocytosis, and eosinophilia. The records of 8 patients with the allopurinol hypersensitivity syndrome(More)
STUDY DESIGN This study analyzed the parameters needed for electrical stimulation of vertebral pedicle drill bits and screws. OBJECTIVES The feasibility of using electrically evoked electromyography was studied. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Considerable potential for damage of adjacent nerve roots with incorrectly placed bits and screws exists with(More)
STUDY DESIGN Lower extremity polysynaptic reflexes and descending neurogenic motor and ascending somatosensory activity were recorded. OBJECTIVE Two cases are presented to illustrate the intraoperative use of lower extremity reflex recordings for detecting compromise of spinal cord function. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Lower extremity reflex processing(More)
Segmental reflex regulation in 37 patients with idiopathic scoliosis and 8 patients with nonidiopathic scoliosis was studied by recording evoked reflex muscle potentials from four muscle groups in each lower extremity during partial neuromuscular blockade. Effects on reflex activity mediated through descending systems arising in the brain stem were(More)
Peripheral blood from patients with a novel tropical splenic lymphoma, characterized by splenomegaly and circulating naïve CD5-negative villous B lymphocytes, has been screened for evidence of an association with the B-lymphotropic viruses, Epstein--Barr virus (EBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8). No increased prevalence of EBV, HCV(More)
The demonstration that patients with primary hyperuricaemia are also hyperaminoacidaemic (Kaplan, Bernstein, Wallace, and Halberstam, 1965) has suggested the possibility that the presumptive renal tubular defect in the handling of uric acid by many such patients (Nugent and Tyler, 1959; Seegmiller, Grayzel, Howell, and Plato, 1962) may be only one(More)
