prognostic steroid leucocytosis

B Crha, J Poul, J Jochymek
The authors discuss the diagnostic and prognostic problem of chronic recurrent osteomyelitis (CRMO) described for the first time in 1972 by Giedione. This relatively rare disease of unknown origin is characterized by a slow onset with oedema and pain at several sites of the locomotor apparatus which occur concurrently or consecutively and are followed by relapses. The body temperature is normal or slightly elevated. CRMO is sometimes associated also with palmoplantar pustulosis. The authors evaluate six patients wih CRMO treated in 1988-1994 (4 boys and 2 girls), age 7-13 years at the onset of the disease...

UNLABELLED: The purpose of the study was to monitor minimal residue disease (MRD) among children with ALL and to evaluate the possibility of using this test to detect and monitor the minimal residual disease (MRD test) in the stratification of risk groups on a parallel basis with other recognised prognostic factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 56 children, with de novo diagnosed ALL, comprised test group. Control group consisted of 10 healthy persons. DNA was isolated from peripheral blood and bone marrow...

Results of experimental studies on cancer dissemination, as well as certain clinical observations, strongly suggest a relation between inflammation and tumor spread. Surgical trauma and postoperative septic complications can result in severe inflammation and in consequence worsening prognosis after curative surgery for colorectal cancer. Clinical signs of inflammation, such as fever, elevated leucocytosis and/or C-reactive protein seem to be of poor prognostic significance, heralding recurrence of cancer. If so, it could be hypothesized that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may play a beneficial role in reduction of cancer relapses...

The Hamman-Rich syndrome is defined as an acute pulmonary disease of unclear aetiology that takes a rapid and prognostically unfavourable, usually fatal course. We report on three patients admitted to the intensive-care ward during a period of 6 months in a state of mandatory artificial respiration, each patient dying within 3 weeks after admission. Basing on clinical and histological criteria these patients were diagnosed as suffering from Hamman-Rich syndrome. At the time of the clinically identifiable onset of the disease all the patients had fever (> 39 X), leucocytosis (> 20 x 10(3)/microliters) and dyspnoea...
