A clinical study was conducted on children with frequently relapsing nephrotic syndrome to see the therapeutic effectiveness of chlorambucil therapy. Study population consisted of 21 children with biopsy-proven minimal lesion nephrotic syndrome, in whom chlorambucil therapy was given to control their frequent relapses and/or steroid dependency. Eleven patients were frequent relapser and 10 were steroid dependant. Study period extended from December 1980 to August...

Acute renal failure is defined as a sudden decrease in renal function resulting in progressive retention of nitrogenous waste products. Acute renal failure should be suspected in any infant who has a sustained decrease in urine output to less than 1 ml per kg per hour, a blood urea nitrogen level above 20 mg per dl, a serum creatinine level greater than 1.0...

The kinds of ECG abnormality...
Studies on the Changes of Serum Osmolality Electrolytes, Digoxin-like Substance and Plasma Renin Activity Following Angiocardiography using Hypertonic Contrast Media.

Angiocardiography and cineangiocardiography have been employed with increasing frequency for the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases. These commonplace technics of cardiovascular radiology depend upon the rapid injection of hypertonic contrast media into the heart or central circulation. In order to study the effects of concentrated radiopaque materials(Conray®, 1382 mOsm/L, 1-2 ml/ kg) on hemodynamic consequences, the changes of serum osmolality, sodium, potassium, chloride, digoxin-like substance and...

Neonatal spontaneous pneumomediastinum is a rare phenomenon which is observed in case of respiratory distressed, meconium stained and meconium aspirated neonate. In certain state, air can leak from the ruptured alveoli into the pulmonary interstitium and movement of this air along the vascular structures may result in pneumomediastinum. We experienced a case of spontaneous pneumomediastinum, in a 3 day-old male infant (43+5 wks gestational...
