The morphology of peritubular capillary has been mostly studied in relation to chronic transplant rejection, where an association has been found between transplant glomerulopathy and reduplication of peritubular capillary basement membranes (PCBM). This electron microscopy study of peritubular capillaries was done on kidney biopsies performed on patients with conditions involving primarily glomeruli (diabetic glomerulopathy (23), Alport syndrome (37)) or causing more or less isolated changes of nephron structures outside the glomeruli (Balkan endemic nephropathy (15) and hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (19))...

BACKGROUND: Maculopathy occurring in young patients is a challenge in differential diagnosis. Besides hereditary macular dystrophies and acquired macular degenerations, rare systemic disorders should be considered. CASE REPORT: A 36 year old female patient complained about a gradually decrease of visual acuity in both eyes and an increasing exotropia of her right eye. Visual acuity was 0.7, the orthoptical status revealed an intermittent exophoria with exclusion of the right eye...

A 32 year old man was admitted for dyspnea, hemoptysis, macroscopic hematuria, hypertension (140/100), peripheral edema and hemodynamic decompensation. Lung Xrays revealed pulmonary edema and a cavity in the left apex. Laboratory determinations revealed an altered renal function with increased creatinine and urea levels and nephrotic syndrome. There was leucocyturia, hematuria and cylindruria. The sputum showed a large number of acid-fast bacilli. The patient began anti-tuberculosis treatment with three drugs (isoniacid, rifampicin, pirazinamide)...

The authors studied 8 patients (4 males and 4 females) with Cushing's syndrome due to ectopic ACTH secretion. Chronological age ranged from 15 to 45 years and duration of the disease ranged from 3 to 48 months. All patients presented typical signs of Cushing's syndrome, blood hypertension, and four of them had hyperpigmentation of the skin. Five patients had fasting hyperglycemia and all patients but one had serum hypokalemia (serum K = 2.2 to 3.9mEq/l). The circadian rhythm of cortisol was absent in all patients and basal cortisol levels were elevated in all patients but one...

At the present article, 12 cases of paraplegia secondary to the surgical treatment of thoracoabdominal aneurysms are presented. Study includes patients admitted between 1973-1987 for treatment and rehabilitation of its medular injury. Factors of risk, surgical technics practiced, peroperative complications and type of medular injury are analyzed. The most common medular injury was an anterior medular syndrome (rather than 60%). In the same way, preventive methods are analyzed and somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) and motor evoked potentials (MEP), both in developing phase at the present moment, are recommended as the most viable method for detecting changes during the surgical procedure...
