- ItemA child with the nephrotic syndrome associated with endemic syphilis. : a case report(Health and Medical Publishing Group (HMPG), 1978-07) Le Roux, F. B.; Van Buuren, A. J.A 21-month old infant with endemic syphilis who presented with nephrotic syndrome is described. Clinically, the features correlated well with those of renal disease associated with secondary syphilis. The onset of renal disease in association with syphilis after early infancy may be a valuable aid in drawing attention to the possibility of endemic syphilis. Morphologically the features were those of an immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritis. We regard the presence of a large number of immature looking glomeruli as a retrogressive phenomenon.
- ItemCongenital tuberculosis : a report of a probable case(Health & Medical Publishing Group, 1978) Le Roux, F. B.; Schwersenski , J.; Greeff, M. J.Extensive miliary pulmonary tuberculosis in a 17-day-old infant born to a mother with pulmonary tuberculosis is described. It was assumed that the patient probably had congenital tuberculosis. We report our findings to draw attention to a rare disease where a high index of suspicion, timely diagnosis and adequate management are essential if treatment is to be successful.
- ItemKaposi's sarcoma in a renal allograft recipient with cytomegalovirus infection : a case report(Health & Medical Publishing Group, 1982) Le Roux, F. B.; Burman, N. D.; Becker, W. B.There are increasing reports of Kaposi's sarcoma arising in immunosuppressed patients, including renal allograft recipients. Furthermore, evidence is accumulating that cytomegalovirus infection may be an aetiological factor in kaposi's sarcoma. We report an additional case in a renal allograft recipient treated with corticosteroids, azathioprine and niridazole, who also had active cytomegalovirus infection.
