BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) is considered the gold standard for the treatment of hematologic disease of the spleen. Intraoperative bleeding is the main complication and main cause of conversion during LS. In this paper, we present our experience with 112 LS procedures, comparing two different techniques and instruments for spleen dissection and hilar vascular control. METHODS: We have performed a total of 112 LS procedures in 9 years in two affiliated university hospitals...

Neonatal sepsis still remains as one of the actual problems in modern medicine due to its high morbidity and mortality rates determined by diagnostic difficulties and absence of sufficient evidence for effective therapy. Literature data have shown that essential role in pathogenesis of sepsis belongs to the cellular oxidation-reduction misballance and development of the oxidative stress. The aim of our work was to assess indices of pro- and antioxidant systems in term neonates with sepsis on the background of anemia and without it...

Connective tissue diseases represent a group of heterogeneous disorders that share certain common features, including inflammation of the skin, joints and other structures rich in connective tissue, as well as altered immunoregulation patterns, including autoantibody production and cell-mediated immunity abnormalities. While certain distinct clinical entities can be defined, manifestations can vary considerably from patient to patient, and the overlap of clinical features between and among specific diseases is common...

BACKGROUND: Thrombotic microangiopathy (TM) is a disorder characterized by fibrin formation and platelet aggregation in the small arteries and capillaries. Two main clinical settings are reported in association with this disorder: hemolitic uremic syndrome (HUS) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). Both conditions share common findings such as microangiopathic anemia and thrombocytopenia. HUS is more frequent in children and is mainly characterized by renal symptoms, whereas PTT is dominated by neurologic abnormalities...

We describe the case of a 23-year-old woman with a mild form of systemic lupus erythematosus who presented a febrile illness rapidly followed by general worsening, neurologic involvement, renal failure and coma. While hospitalized in the intensive care unit she also suffered from acute pancreatitis, microangiopathic hemolitic anemia, thrombocytopenia and prolongation of clotting times. Despite aggressive treatment the patient died at day 17 of hospitalization in the intensive care unit. At autopsy necrotico-hemorragic pancreatitis, diffuse pneumonia, peritonitis and cerebral edema were present...

The primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a no frequent entity in our country. Its diagnosis is based on clinical features, cholestasic pattern in liver function tests and the presence of antimitochondrial antibody in 90% of cases and other auto-antibodies in the serum, all this information is supported by characteristic hepatic histopathologic data. Also some clinical variants have been described that has suggested different denominations such as Overlap Syndrome, associated to autoimmune hepatitis and autoimmune colangitis, known by its persistent negativity of the antimitochondrials antibodies...

The erytrocyte glucose-6-phosphate deshydrogenase (G6PD) identification and activity were determinated in all member of a family, which was selected because one of the sons showed the clinical signs of hemolitic anemia due to G6PD deficiency and this was confirmed by qualitative fluorescent test, enzyme activity quantification and electrophoretic runs. It was found that two clinically healthy brothers are G6PD deficients and that the mother and one sister are carriers of this enzimatyc defect of the A--variant...

The clinical records of 14 patients with proved diagnosis of sistemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) associated to pregnancy, seen between november 1986, and july 1988 at the "20 de Novembre" Hospital in Mexico City, were studied. The following variables were evaluated: maternal age, of beginning of SLE, lupus criteria present at the moment of the acute phase of the disease, obstetric history, prenatal care, age of pregnancy, laboratory studies, therapy before, during and after delivery, children's findings, and maternal complications, 50% of the patients had history of previous abortions; there was a high incidence of preterm deliveries (42...

An autoantibody mimicking anti-S specificity is described in an S-s+ patient. The antibody was detected 2 weeks after transfusion. The direct antiglobulin test (DAT) was positive and the antibody was thought to be an alloantibody formed after the transfusion. Eighteen months later, the DAT was still positive and anti-S could be eluted from the patient's red blood cells in spite of the fact that these were S-s+. The autoantibody was characterized as mimicking anti-S specificity by in vitro absorption studies...

Six cases of Blackfan-Diamond hypoplastic anemia are reported. Five were initiated within six months of life. All cases showed intense anemia, severe reticulopenia and hypersideremia. Two of them had associated malformations. Treatment was established with Dexametasone at high doses, followed by a maintenance treatment at lower doses. A partial response was obtained in all cases. Treatment with deforroxiamine was used in order to paliate hemosiderosis. Two cases developped microangiopathic hemolitic anemia; relations with primary disease could not be determined...
