With increasing CT examinations of the cerebrum, the discovery of basal ganglia calcification becomes more frequent. In order to correlate these calcifications to the symptoms believed to be accompanied with Fahr's disease 2318 cranial CT scans were examined. There was an overall incidence of basal ganglia calcification of 12.5%. The most frequent location(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate remission and breast-conservation rates after preoperative chemotherapy or chemo-radiotherapy (CT-RT). PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy-three patients with 74 biopsy-proven invasive breast cancers prospectively entered the protocol. Eighteen patients were treated by neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery and adjuvant irradiation(More)
In severely ill patients of an intensive care unit overt peripheral thyroid hormone deficiency was noted in 22 of 33 subjects. The TRH-test was performed in 7 of these 22 patients and was negative in all. Thus, the laboratory data suggest secondary hypothyroidism. The laboratory diagnosis, however, could not be supported by clinical signs probably due to(More)
PURPOSE Evaluation of remission rates after neoadjuvant chemotherapy alone or followed by preoperative radiotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS 194 women with 198 biopsy-proven breast tumors were evaluated in this retrospective study. Of the 198 cases evaluated, 64 received neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery and adjuvant irradiation (CT group). In 134(More)
A 56-year-old woman with known osteogenesis imperfecta tarda but no obvious sign of cardiac disease developed increasing dyspnoea, eventually even at rest, with blood-streaked sputum over a period of 10 days. The chest radiograph demonstrated intraalveolar pulmonary oedema. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed as the likely cause of these signs chordal(More)
In a 29-year-old man with primary thrombotic-thrombocytopenic purpura a significantly increased plasma concentration of platelet-specific proteins was demonstrated as an expression of increased intravascular platelet activation and destruction during the acute phase of the disease. There was also abnormally elevated IgG loading of platelets. During(More)
