Background: The pyogenic liver abscess has an incidence of 1.1/1,000 habitants. Mortality can reach 100%. The use of less invasive procedures diminish morbidity and hospital stay. Aim: Identify risk factors in patients who underwent percutaneous drainage guided by ultrasound as treatment. Method: Were analyzed 10 patients submitted to the method. Epidemiological characteristics, laboratory markers and imaging exams (ultrasound and CT) were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the factors prognostics of early mortality in the malignant billary estenosis after the endoscopic derivation. BACKGROUND DATA: The surgical, percutaneous or endoscopic derivation is the alternative of palliative treatment in the biliary obstruction unresectable. The factors prognostic the early mortality after surgical derivation are: hemoglobin < 10 g/dL, serum bilirubin > 10 mg/dL and serum albumin < 2.5 g/dL; for the percutaneous derivation they are the sanguineous urea more of 4...

Clinical features of Dengue are very variable due to multiple alterations induced by the virus in the organism. Increased levels of transaminases similar to those produced by the Hepatitis virus have been reported in patients with Dengue from hiperendemic zones in Asia. The objectives of this study were to determine alterations in the liver tests in patients with Dengue and to relate them to the disease, clinically and serologically. Clinical history, hemathological tests serum transaminases (ALT y AST) and bilirubin assays were performed in 62 patients with clinical and serological diagnosis of Dengue...

The liver is frequently involved by amyloidosis, but hyperbilirubinemia and liver failure are uncommon features. A mild elevation of the serum alkaline phosphatase value and, less frequently, hepatomegaly are the most common findings. Usually the patients have no symptoms related with the liver involvement; the clinical manifestation and the long term prognosis depends on the renal and cardiac disease. We report an unusual clinical presentation of primary amyloidosis in a previously asymptomatic 65 years old woman who was admitted to the hospital because of ictericia and ascitis mimicking a drug induced acute hepatic failure...

We studied 45 full-term newborns divided into 3 groups. Group 1: 17 newborns with bilirubin <10 mg/dL; Group 2: 18 newborns with hemolytic ictericia (bilirubin 11-20 mg/dL) and Group 3: 10 newborns with moderate hemolytic ictericia needing exchange transfusion. The following were studied: erythrocytic deformability, plasma viscosity, plasmatic osmolarity, seric bilirubin, bilirubin/albumin ratio, free fatty acids and corpuscular volume of the erythrocytes. In full-term newborns, the following are risk factors for increased erythrocytic rigidity: neonatal hemolytic illness (p = 0...
