1/48. The ileal ureter in recurrent urolithiasis.

    An ileal segment was interposed between the renal collecting system and bladder in 4 cases. The surgical technique is outlined, with emphasis on the pyelo-infundibulocalico-ileal anastomosis and other technical aspects. The ileal ureter is recommended in selected cases of recurrent renal calculi and nephrocalcinosis with associated nephrolithiasis.

2/48. Bilateral ureteric replacement with ileum.

    In connection with a report of a case, authors discuss in outline the possibilities of ureter replacement. If both the ureters are injured, they can be substituted with one single segment of the intestine, as it happened in their case. Authors raise the idea that a longer segment of the intestine used for substitution provides sufficient capacity and isoperistaltic function, and this may protect from the negative effects of possible vesicoileal reflux. In this case, the reflux does not spread to the kidneys even if the ureteroileal was not made with anti-reflux technique.

3/48. ophthalmoplegic migraine and periodic migrainous neuralgia, migraine variants with ocular manifestations.

    The spectrum of migraine has been outlined with particular attention to two entities: ophthalmoplegic migraine and Periodic Migrainous neuralgia. Although quite different in many respects from classical migraine, the relationship of a periodic localized vascular phenomenon giving rise to headache and transient neurologic signs, classify PMN and OPGM as migraine variants. Supportive of this concept, the literature has been reviewed in both entities, and some observations are made on the validity of earlier reports. It is the author's opinion that Raeder's syndrome should be reserved for patients with a lesion localizing in the paratrigeminal area. This does not exclude migraine as an etiologic agent but also recognizes tumors, infections and fractures as being more common.

4/48. An unusual cutaneous presentation of Hodgkin's disease.

    Hodgkin's disease is a neoplasm of lymphoid tissue defined histopathologically by the presence of reed-sternberg cells in an appropriate cellular background. Hodgkin's disease extends only rarely into the skin. Sinus and fistula formation has been reported in very occasional cases. We now report a case of a 34-year-old woman presenting with a cutaneous lesion surrounding a discharging blind-ending sinus in the neck, subsequently diagnosed as Hodgkin's disease. To our knowledge this form of presentation of Hodgkin's disease has not been reported in the English literature before, and at the same time we would like to outline the difficulties in diagnosis encountered with these cutaneous lymphoid lesions.

5/48. Varicella followed by glomerulonephritis. Treatment with corticosteroids and azathioprine resulting in recurrence of varicella.

    The present report outlines the clinical features of a 2-year-old boy who following varicella developed purpura of the lower extremities, transient gastrointestinal bleeding and glomerulonephritis. The triad of symptoms suggests Schonlein-Henoch syndrome, but coagulation studies and renal biopsy did not confirm this, and varicella is thought to be the cause of the complications. Therapy with corticosteroids and azathioprine had only a minor effect on the nephritis but caused depression of serum IgG and specific antibody resulting in reinfection or reactivation of varicella.

6/48. Recurrent idiopathic perforations of the small intestine.

    BACKGROUND/AIMS: Idiopathic perforation of the small intestine is extremely rare. The definition depends on the absence of any detectable pathology that could be responsible for the perforation. This study was undertaken to outline the criteria for determination of the condition. methods: Case report and review of the literature. RESULTS: A 50-year-old male patient underwent surgery including laparostomy and planned reexplorations for multiple recurrent small intestinal perforations of unknown origin; the patient made an uneventful recovery. Extensive investigations were carried out to search for any pathology that could explain the occurrence of perforations, but yielded no results. CONCLUSIONS: Further studies will possibly give more information concerning idiopathic perforation of the small intestine, provided that judicious criteria for its determination are applied.

7/48. Assessment of the child with recurrent respiratory infections.

    BACKGROUND: Children with atopy, daycare attendance, crowding or exposure to cigarette smoke are predisposed to recurrent respiratory infection. The young child who 'is always sick' is a common problem, creating concern for their parents and doctors. OBJECTIVE: To outline an approach for determining which children with recurrent respiratory infections are normal, which have an allergic disorder and which have an underlying immune or other problem. DISCUSSION: The majority of children with recurrent respiratory tract infections are normal, however, it is important to consider atopy and underlying immunodeficiency. In those children where there are features suggesting an underlying immunological disorder, specialist assessment is warranted.

8/48. Chronic relapsing pancreatitis in a child. Use of the Puestow procedure to achieve ductal drainage.

    A case of chronic relapsing pancreatitis presenting in an 8-year-old African Jamaican girl is outlined. Aggressive supportive management failed to control pain and vomiting. The Puestow Procedure effectively procedure aborted these symptoms. The use of the Puestow procedure should not be inordinately delayed in chronic relapsing pancreatitis if symptoms persist, since it may not only control pain but also halt declining pancreatic function.

9/48. growth arrest lines and recurrent patellar dislocation: a new sign.

    The phenomenon of growth arrest lines has been widely described in the medical literature. They are usually found at the metaphysis of growing long bones and are the result of short periods of partial growth arrest. Recurrent dislocation of the patella is a well-recognised problem, particularly in adolescents. Several radiological features have been reported in association with patellar dislocation or instability. We have reported a hitherto undescribed radiological sign of patellar growth arrest lines on the skyline radiographs of two patients with this condition. The shape of the patella when symptoms were at their worst corresponded remarkably closely to the outline of the subsequent growth arrest line. We postulated that repeated dislocations adversely affect the process of normal maturation of the patella. With the resolution of symptoms, patella ossification resumes, leaving the telltale sign of previous injury in the form of a growth arrest line and an improvement in bone density once the patella has been stabilised and tracks normally.

10/48. The use of applied tension and cognitive therapy to manage syncope (common faint) in an older adult.

    The rationale for the use of the applied tension technique in the treatment of syncope (common faint) is outlined. A case example of its successful use in combination with cognitive therapy for anxiety in an appropriately screened older person is provided.
