https://doi.org/10.1111/pde.12352
Pediatric Dermatology; Heng YK, Koh MJ et. al.

Jun 3rd, 2014 - Few studies have evaluated Asian children with mycosis fungoides (MF). We report a series of patients from a tertiary dermatologic institution in Singapore. A retrospective review was performed of patients younger than 16 years old diagnosed with MF between 2000 and 2008 at the National Skin Centre, Singapore. Forty-six patients were identified. At initial presentation, a provisional diagnosis ...

Intensive Care Medicine; Leblanc D, Bouvet C et. al.

Jul 15th, 2014 - Extent of lung contusion on initial computed tomography (CT) scan predicts the occurrence of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in blunt chest trauma patients. We hypothesized that lung ultrasonography (LUS) on admission could also predict subsequent ARDS. Forty-five blunt trauma patients were prospectively studied. Clinical examination, chest radiography, and LUS were performed on arri...

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jaad.2014.05.057
Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology; Regauer S, Reich O et. al.

Jul 7th, 2014 - Vulvar squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) arising in association with vulvar lichen planus (LP) are poorly documented. We sought to present clinicopathological features of 38 patients (median age 61 years, range 39-90 years) with LP-associated vulvar SCCs. Evaluated were location of vulvar SCC and metastases at presentation, recurrences, survival, precursor lesions, presence of human papillomaviru...

Nephrology, Dialysis, Transplantation : Official Publicat... Sharma SG, Nickeleit V et. al.

Dec 19th, 2012 - While BK polyoma virus nephropathy (PVN) is a well-recognized cause of renal allograft dysfunction, PVN of native kidneys is likely under-recognized. We present the pathologic features, risk factors and outcomes of eight cases of PVN in native kidneys. The cohort included eight males aged 16-73 years (mean 47.4) with an immunocompromised state (mean duration 3.15 years) attributable to: hematol...

https://doi.org/10.1530/EJE-10-0412
European Journal of Endocrinology; Abiven-Lepage G, Coste J et. al.

Aug 11th, 2010 - Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare, severe disease. Pregnancy-associated ACC has rarely been reported. We wished to evaluate the characteristics and prognosis of ACC diagnosed in patients during pregnancy or in the postpartum period, comparing them with those for ACC diagnosed in nonpregnant women. Clinical presentation, hormonal secretion, staging, survival, and obstetric data are report...

Pediatric Transplantation; Oh SH, Kim KM et. al.

Jul 8th, 2010 - There have only been a few studies on the long-term outcomes and prognostic factors after pediatric LDLT. We conducted a retrospective, single-center assessment of the outcomes as well as the demographic and clinical factors that influenced the poor outcomes in 113 children aged <16 (median age 21 months; 6 months-15.5 yr) who underwent 115 LDLTs, predominantly for biliary atresia (60.9%) and F...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3728652
Otolaryngology--head and Neck Surgery : Official Journal ... Stephen JK, Chen KM et. al.

Jan 23rd, 2012 - Human papillomavirus (HPV), particularly HPV16, is a causative agent for 25% of head and neck squamous cell cancer, including laryngeal squamous cell cancer (LSCC). HPV-positive (HPV+ve) patients, particularly those with oropharyngeal SCC, have improved prognosis. For LSCC patients, this remains to be established. The goal was to determine stage and survival outcomes in LSCC in the context of H...

Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery : Official Journal Of... Jin S, Cao S et. al.

Oct 9th, 2014 - Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPM) is an uncommon disease with a dismal prognosis and unclear natural history. The present study aims to assess potential prognostic factors and management of MPM. Clinical records of 39 patients with MPM between December 2003 and April 2014 were retrospectively reviewed. Overall survival was identified with Kaplan-Meier curves and Cox regression analysis. M...

Azathioprine and Risk of Skin Cancer in Organ Transplant Recipients: Systematic Review ...
https://doi.org/10.1111/ajt.13863
American Journal of Transplantation : Official Journal Of... Jiyad Z, Olsen CM et. al.

May 10th, 2016 - Azathioprine, a purine antimetabolite immunosuppressant, photosensitizes the skin and causes the production of mutagenic reactive oxygen species. It is postulated to increase the risk of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and other skin cancers in organ transplant recipients (OTRs), but evidence from multiple, largely single-center studies to date has been inconsistent. We aimed to resolve the issue...

American Journal of Transplantation : Official Journal Of... Shields RK, Clancy CJ et. al.

May 28th, 2013 - We conducted a retrospective study of deep surgical site infections (SSIs) among consecutive patients who underwent lung transplantation (LTx) at a single center from 2006 through 2010. Thirty-one patients (5%) developed SSIs at median 25 days after LTx. Empyema was most common (42%), followed by surgical wound infections (29%), mediastinitis (16%), sternal osteomyelitis (6%), and pericarditis ...

https://doi.org/10.1097/MPH.0000000000000337
Journal of Pediatric Hematology/oncology; Suzuki R, Kobayashi C et. al.

May 1st, 2015 - Imatinib mesylate has dramatically improved the outcome of children with Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph* ALL) and is now included as first-line therapy. Uncommon adverse effects of this drug for pediatric use, however, are largely unknown. We report the first case of a 9-year-old child who developed severe acute hepatitis with grade 4 transaminases and bilirub...

https://doi.org/10.1378/chest.08-3043
Chest Gómez-Puerta JA, Hernández-Rodríguez J et. al.

Oct 7th, 2009 - Vasculitides associated with serum positivity for antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCAs) are a well-established subgroup affecting small- to medium-sized vessels that are commonly recognized as ANCA-associated vasculitis, which includes necrotizing granulomatous vasculitis (NGV) [formerly Wegener granulomatosis], microscopic polyangiitis (MPA), and Churg-Strauss syndrome. NGV usually sta...

https://doi.org/10.1002/pbc.26181
Pediatric Blood & Cancer; Wu HP, Lin CL et. al.

Aug 30th, 2016 - While transfusion and iron chelation therapy for thalassemia major (TM) has improved dramatically in recent years, the consequences of this improvement (current rates of survival and TM-related complications) remain unknown. This nationwide population-based cohort study analyzed 2007-2011 data obtained from the Taiwanese National Health Insurance Research Database. After excluding those patient...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5382928
Leukemia Research; Diab A, Zickl L et. al.

Oct 29th, 2012 - Previous small series have suggested that acute myeloid leukemia with t(8;16) is a distinct morphologic and clinical entity associated with poor prognosis. We describe 18 patients with t(8;16) AML, including their clinical, cytomorphologic, immunophenotypic and cytogenetic features. Half of the patients had extramedullary disease, most commonly leukemia cutis, which often preceded bone marrow i...

American Heart Journal; Dusenbery SM, Geva T et. al.

Apr 29th, 2013 - Scimitar syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly. We evaluated risk factors for postoperative pulmonary vein stenosis or death and predictive factors for survival without scimitar vein surgery in patients with scimitar syndrome. The records of patients with scimitar syndrome evaluated at our medical center between 1964 and 2011 were reviewed. Scimitar syndrome was identified in 80 patients, with ...

https://doi.org/10.1245/s10434-010-1437-x
Annals of Surgical Oncology; Wang TS, Cheung K et. al.

Nov 19th, 2010 - Postoperative hypocalcemia is the most common complication after thyroidectomy; prevention and treatment remain areas of ongoing debate. The purpose of this study was to determine the incremental cost utility of routine versus selective calcium and vitamin D supplementation after total or completion thyroidectomy. A cost-utility analysis using a Markov decision model was performed for a hypothe...

https://doi.org/10.1542/peds.2008-1949
Pediatrics Serinet MO, Wildhaber BE et. al.

Apr 30th, 2009 - Increased age at surgery has a negative impact on results of the Kasai operation for biliary atresia in infancy and early childhood. It remained unclear if an age threshold exists and if this effect persists with extended follow-up. In this study we examined the relationship between increased age at surgery and its results in adolescence. All patients with biliary atresia who were living in Fra...
