OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the treatment modalities of total ureteral avulsion and to clarify the risk factors of this serious complication. METHODS: This study retrospectively analyzed the data of 3 patients with complete ureteral avulsion during ureteroscopy. Of the three patients, two had distal ureteral complete avulsion, and one total ureteral avulsion on both ends. Ureteroneocystostomy (UNC) was immediately performed after distal ureteral avulsion cases. Ileal ureter substition was performed on the same session after the total ureteral avulsion in both ends...

The diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of immune trombocytopenic purpura (ITP) have been extensively studied, but data on its effect on health-related quality of life in children remain sparse. To shed more light on this issue, we administered the Kids' ITP Tools (KIT) questionnaire to 17 children with ITP attending a tertiary pediatric medical center and their parents (n=34). The mean KIT score was significantly lower in the parents' group than in the children's group (P=0.000). The main domains of concern for the parents were disease side effects and their child's future; the children were mostly concerned about the need to restrict physical activities...

INTRODUCTION: Aplastic anaemia is a rare but potentially fatal complication of treatment with ticlopidine. CASE OUTLINE: We present a 55-year-old male with aplastic anaemia which developed after 45 days of the therapy with 200 mg ticlopidine to prevent coronary thrombosis. The treatment with ticlopidine was withdrawn and broad spectrum antibiotics as well as transfusion of packed red cells, platelets and G-CSF were administered. Two weeks after the onset of the disease, the number of white blood cells dropped to 0...

Peliosis is a rarely seen histological finding with unexplained fully etiology and pathogenesis. It is presented as cyst-like blood filled cavities. The presence of peliosis in the endocrine part of the pancreas is extremely rarely reported microscopic phenomenon. The authors provide histological, histochemical, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural investigation of microscopic peliosis in the pancreas from an autopsy case with thrombotic trombocytopenic purpura. The findings give ideas for a wide range of pathophysiological and morphogenetic comments of such an unusual morphologic presentation...

Thrombotic microangiopathies are disorders that arise due to a diffuse endothelial damage. They predominantly manifest either as thrombotic trombocytopenic purpura (TTP) or hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). When they arise as a complication of pregnancy and associated disorders they are associated with a high mortality and morbidity.

The human bartonelloses are a group of diseases with a rapidly increasing clinical spectrum. Well known manifestations such as Carrion's disease, trench fever, cat-scratch disease, and bacillary angiomatosis are examples of Bartonella sp. infection. Along with these diseases, recurrent bacteremia, endocarditis, septicemia, erythema nodosum, erythema multiforme, trombocytopenic purpura and other syndromes have been reported having been caused by bacteria of this genus. The infectious process and the pathogenesis of these microorganisms are poorly understood...

UNLABELLED: The aim of our study was to estimate etiology, most common clinical findings, the course and peculiarities of treatment in children to whom Henoch-Schönlein purpura was diagnosed during 1996-2002 at Clinic of Children's Diseases of Kaunas University of Medicine Hospital. METHODS: The Henoch-Schönlein purpura diagnosis was based on the association of non-trombocytopenic purpura, arthritis and abdominal pain in 45 children, mostly at preschool age. Routine laboratory blood tests usually were normal...

We have studied tissue expression of the cytokine receptors using a high sensitivity biotin-streptavidin system on cryostat sections. We used a panel of monoclonal antibodies from the 6th International Workshop on Human Leukocyte Differentiation Antigens, namely CD25 (IL-2R alpha), CD95 (FAS antigen), CD116 (GM CSFR), CD117 (SCFR), CD120 alpha (TNFR I), CD120b (TNFR II), CD121a (IL-1R I), CDw123 (IL-3R), CD124 (IL-4R), CD126 (IL-6R), CD127 (IL-7R), CDw128 (IL-8R), CD130 (gpl130), CD131 (IL-3R), CD132 (IL-2R gamma), CD134 (OC-40), CD135 (FLT3/FLK2)...

A patient with typical varicella (chickenpox) developed several complications: nephrotic syndrome following glomerulonephritis, trombocytopenic purpura, gastrointestinal bleeding, disseminated intravascular coagulation, encephalitis and bronchopneumonia. The course was satisfactory having been given antibiotics, heparin and peritoneal dialysis. Recovery was 100%.

Two cases of idiopathic trombocytopenic purpura, in infants 37 and 42 days old, and one case of atypical congenital cytomegaloviral disease are presented, the latter proved at necropsy. Cytomegalic inclusion cells are found in urine in both cases of purpura with hepatosplenomegaly and mononucleosis syndrome. In one of the cases, cytomegalovirus cultures are positive in urine and blood. The hemorrhagic syndrome is mild and recuperation is achieved in less than thirty days, without relapse. The use of corticosteroids is not recommended...
