Primary cutaneous melanoma has a tendency to disappear spontaneously. Histologically the active phase is characterized by a dense infiltrate of lymphocytes similar to that seen in spontaneously disappearing naevi. The regression process may continue until the tumour has been completely destroyed, or it may cease when only a part of the tumour has been(More)
The aim of this open study was to observe linear growth in young children with asthma treated with nebulized budesonide. Infants and young children (< 3 years old) with severe uncontrolled asthma were studied. They were treated with nebulized budesonide (1-4 mg day-1) and treated for at least 6 months. Height standard deviation scores (HtSDS) were measured(More)
BACKGROUND The late Dr. Vincent McGovern (1915 to 1983) was an international authority on melanoma pathology and one of the first to suggest that assessment of tumor mitotic rate (TMR) might provide useful prognostic information. Data for a large cohort of patients, now with extended follow-up, whose tumors had been assessed by Dr. McGovern were analyzed to(More)
Single and multifactorial analyses were used to evaluate prognosis and results of surgical treatment in 534 clinical Stage I patients with head and neck cutaneous melanoma treated at the University of Alabama in Birmingham (U.S.A.) and the University of Sydney (Australia). This computerized data base was prospectively accumulated in over 90% of cases.(More)
Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) is a rare vasculitic disorder that generally occurs in patients with bronchial asthma. CSS is being increasingly recognized in asthmatic patients treated with leukotriene receptor antagonists. However, the nature of this relationship remains to be elucidated. The present report describes three asthmatic patients who developed(More)
It has been suggested that patients with thin malignant melanoma displaying evidence of histological regression may have a poor prognosis. In the present study, the case histories of 353 patients with clinical stage I cutaneous malignant melanoma up to 0.7 mm thick were reviewed to determine if either active or past regression in these lesions was a poor(More)
Salmonella colitis was encountered in eight patients. In seven, the disorder simulated ulcerative colitis both clinically and radiologically. The salmonella infection in the eighth patient was superimposed upon hitherto unrecognized ulcerative colitis. In mild cases the histological appearances of rectal biopsies were nonspecific, consisting of edema of the(More)
