We report a typical case of hematidrosis in a Chinese girl who had experienced frequent bleeding episodes for more than 3 years. During hospitalization, spontaneous bleeding from her intact skin was witnessed by our staff on more than 20 occasions. Characteristically, bloody droplets from the intact skin contained all blood components. Histopathologic(More)
Chronic disseminated intravascular coagulation is a rare complication of aortic dissection. Surgical correction or low molecular weight heparin is treatment of choice, but for a severe bleeding problem due to excessive fibrinolysis, para-aminomethylbenzoic acid would be a simple and effective therapeutic approach.
OBJECTIVE To study the efficacy and safety of rituximab (RTX) in the treatment of idiopathic thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITTP). METHODS Among 17 ITTP patients, nine cases of the RTX group were administrated with RTX plus plasma exchange (PEX) and steroids. Eight cases of the control group received PEX plus steroids±other immune inhibitors.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of IL- 23/IL- 17 axis in peripheral blood of patients with primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) and its clinical significance. METHODS The real-time quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction(RT-PCR)was used to determine the expression of IL-23p19, p40, p35, IL-23R, IL-12Rβ1, IL-12Rβ2, IL-17A,(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the diagnostic value of protein induced by vitamin K absence or antagonist -II(PIVKA-II) in non-infant with acquired deficiency of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors(ADVKCF). METHODS PIVKA-II levels were measured by ELISA in 50 patients with ADVKCF on day 0, 3, 7 after vitamin K treatment. Prothrombin time(PT), APTT, FII: C,(More)
Immunosuppressive therapy (IST) with antithymocyte globulin (ATG) and cyclosporine (CsA) is the standard treatment for children with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) with no human leukocyte antigen-matched siblings. Due to the unavailability of horse ATG in China, porcine antilymphocyte globulin (p-ALG), which is less expensive and more effective than rabbit(More)
Objective To investigate the efficacy and safety of rituximab (RTX) as first-line treatment of acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (aTTP). Methods Twenty-five patients with acute aTTP and/or severe a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with a thrombospondin type 1 motif, member 13 (ADAMTS13) deficiency were admitted to our centre from April 2009 to(More)
BACKGROUND Aplastic anemia (AA) is a type of bone marrow hematopoietic system disease. The immune mediated hematopoietic inhibition is recognized as the most common pathogenesis of AA. However, the roles of the T-bet/GATA-3-mediated cell immune disorder in aplastic anemia (AA) is still unknown. METHODS Experimental samples were obtained from 27 patients(More)
The aetiology and pathological mechanisms involved in the development of haematidrosis (bloody sweat) remain unclear. There is no specific treatment for this disorder. This case report describes the clinical manifestations and treatment of a 9-year-old female with haematidrosis associated with epilepsy. The diagnosis of haematidrosis was confirmed by(More)
