The classic photoparoxysmal response (CPPR) on photic stimulation in the electroencephalogram (EEG) of 128 patients with chronic epilepsy, constituting three different ethnic groups, was investigated. All patients were ...
Screening for mutations in exon 4: Of the LDL receptor gene: Identification of a new deletion mutation
DNA from 14 unrelated New Zealand familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) heterozygotes, originating from the United Kingdom, was screened for mutations in exon 4 of the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) gene. One patient ...
An early-onset recessive cerebellar disorder with distal amyotrophy and, in two patients, gross myoclonia: A probable ataxia telangiectasia variant
We report a family of 4 siblings from a non-consanguineous marriage, presenting with an early onset recessive cerebellar ataxia and progressive distal limb wasting. Ocular or other telangiectasias were absent. There were ...

A community based sero-epidemiological study was undertaken to determine the age specific prevalence rates of hepatitis A virus (HAV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in a band of Bushmen in the West Caprivi, Namibia. ...
The moth-eaten alopecia of secondary syphilis: A histopathological study of 12 patients
Moth-eaten alopecia (MEA) is a characteristic manifestation of secondary syphilis. Clinically, this form of alopecia may be confused with trichotillomania, traction alopecia, and alopecia areata. The histopathological ...
Perforation of a nasotracheal tube with a Kirschner wire during maxillofacial surgery: Report of case
[No abstract available]
Two novel frameshift mutations in the low density lipoprotein receptor gene generated by endogenous sequence-directed mechanisms
DNA samples from 60 unrelated Belgian hypercholesterolemic patients were subjected to heteroduplex analysis of exon 4 of the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) gene. Aberrant mobility bands were detected in 2 patients ...
Sudden death caused by testicular germ cell tumour
Most cases of sudden unexpected 'natural' death are due to primary disorders of the cardiovascular, respiratory and central nervous system. Sudden death due to a previously undiagnosed malignancy is rare in young, apparently ...
An open trial of valproate in borderline personality disorder
Background: Target symptoms in pharmacotherapy of borderline personality disorder include mood instability, anxiety, and impulsivity. Valproate appears useful for the treatment of these target symptoms in several disorders, ...
