Título: Electron microscopy of giardia lamblia in human jejunal biopsies
Fonte: J Med Microbiol;3(1):196-9, Feb. 1970.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: A description is given of the ultrastructure of Giardia lamblia found in three jejunal biopsies from children. The unique median body, vacuoles and cytoplasmic clefts of this protozoon are illustrated. No evidence of penetration of the trophozoite into the jejunal mucosa or deeper tissues is demonstrable.(AU)

Título: Histological observations on hepatic disease in Jamaican infants and children
Fonte: Doc Med Geogr Trop;6(1):43-60, Mar. 1954.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: The histological findings of 148 biopsies and 12 autopsies on 93 infants are given. No selection was made, beyond the addition of a miscallenous control group to the group of patients with clinical hepatic disease. Patients with hepatic disease were divided into three groups: (1) Kwashiorkor-marasmus(39 cases) (2) Veno-occlusive disease (12 cases) (3) Cirrhosis (8 cases). In discussing group (1) points of difference with the features of the disease elsewhere in the world are emphasised. It is of interest to note that liver cell necrosis was not uncommon, while pancreatic fibrosis was seen in only 2 out of 9 cases autopsied. Group (2) represents a clinical syndrome, apparently quite common in Jamaica, of which, however the underlying histology and aetiology may be varied. In the present study, attention is drawn to endophlebitic occlusion of hepatic veins and it is held that a non-portal fibrosis results, which sometimes progresses towards a cirrhosis. It is suggested that the condition is not solely based on malnutrition and the analogy with certain conditions in humans and in experimental animals as reported in the literature, points to one or more additional toxic factors, as yet unknown. The discussion of group (3) mentions some of the problems of tropical cirrhosis of the liver that await a solution. The control group (4) was considered to emphasise the opinion expressed by other workers in tropical countries that the children seem to establish themselves surprisingly well on a low dietetic level.

Título: Histopathologic cancers in the Commonwealth of Dominica
Fonte: Bull Pan Am Health Organ;20(3):267-75, 1986.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: As in most countries, cancer is a leading cause of death in the Commonwealth of Dominica. This article presents data on cancers diagnosed from biopsy specimens examined at Dominica's Princess Margaret Hospital in 1968-1975 and 1981-1983, years when a pathologist was available at the hospital to perform that work. Of course, not all of the island's inhabitants with cancers had tissue specimens removed for diagnosis. But few Dominicans are apt to have travelled to other areas for treatment, and so it appears that most cancer cases were seen at the Princess Margaret Hospital and were diagnosed through microscopic examinations at the hospital laboratory. In all, 392 malignancies were diagnosed at the laboratory during the study periods. Most of these (228) occurred in female patients, making the ratio of male to female cases 1:1.4. The number of cancer-related deaths appears distributed differently, however, with the male:female mortality ratio being about even. The cancers most frequently diagnosed in women were those of the breast and cervix, followed by those of the reticuloendothelial system, ovary, stomach, body of the uterus, skin, and colon. The most frequent diagnosed cancers among males, in descending order, were those of the prostrate, reticuloendothelial system, skin, stomach, penis, oral cavity, liver, and colon. Only two cases of lung cancer were diagnosed. This finding, together with available mortality data, indicates that lung cancer is relatively rare-far less common than in Jamaica, where it is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among males and appears to have a rising incidence among females. Prostrate cancer diagnosed, affected patients ranging in age from 53 to 84; only three of these patients were under age 60. Regarding cervical cancer, patients with this disease tended to be fairly old, the highest number of diagnosis being made in the 60-69 year group. In general, it appears that the rate of patients appearing with actual clinical dis-reduced by instituting a Pap smear screening program to detect premalignant conditions.(AU)

Título: Eosinophilic granuloma of the cervical and thoracic spine in a child
Fonte: West Indian med. j;41(4):166-8, Dec. 1992.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: A case of eosinophilic granuloma affecting a cervical vertebra, thoracic vertebra and pelvis in a child is reported. We present this case because multifocal eosinophilic granuloma lesions of the spine are rare and can present as this case did with both diagnostic and therapeutic problems. Preoperative diagnosis may be made by X-ray, isotope bone scan and needle biopsy, avoiding unnecessary surgical intervention (AU)

Título: Triple biopsy technique in cancer of the breast
Fonte: West Indian med. j;9(1):40-50, Mar. 1960.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: Cancer of the breast should be treated by radical mastectomy only when there is reasonable expectation of cure. It is now possible to assess prognosis more logically if clinically operable patients are regarded in terms of the "triple biopsy", criteria for which operation are discussed. It is suggested that evidence of microscopic metastases to the apex of the axilla or to the internal mammary chain denotes inoperability and that in such instances radiotherapy has more to offer than radical surgery. The clinical experience with breast cancer as encountered at the University College Hospital of the West Indies for the past six years is reviewed and compared with that reported from other centres in America and Europe. Areas are indicated where local improvements are necessary. A strong plea is made for the urgent provision of better facilities and trained personnel for modern radiotherapy - surely Jamaica's most important medical need at this time (AU)

Título: Relationship between muscle potassium and body potassium in infants with malnutrition
Fonte: J Pediatr;74(1):49-57, Jan. 1969.
Idioma: EN.
Resumo: Specimens of muscle were obtained with a biopsy needle from 23 Jamaican children who were recovering from malnutrition. The samples were analysed for water, fat, nitrogen, and potassium, total body potassium was also measured. Muscle water is increased, but potassium concentration declines in malnutrition. A significant relationship exists between the depletions of muscle potassium and of total body potassium in malnourished infants. Analysis of muscle biopsy samples may lead to a better understanding of the response of tissue to protein depletion at the cellular level (Summary)

Título: A study of the vessels of the placental bed in normotensive and hypertensive women
Fonte: J Obstet Gynaecol;65(5):803-9, Oct. 1958.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: Biopsies of the placental bed have been taken from 36 patients. Histological examination has been carried out with particular reference to pathological changes in the maternal vessels and these changes have been related to the clinical histories of the patients. Vascular lesions have been found in material obtained from hypertensive and from toxaemic women. These changes are in no way distinguishable from those generally acknowledged to occur as a result of systemic hypertension. They are directly related in extent to the clinical severity of the disease. No such changes have been found in normal patients. Apart from differences of degree, the vessel changes in essential hypertension and pre-eclampsia appear identical. They are thought to be due to hypertension (AU)

Título: Glucose-6-phosphatase activity in human diabetes
Fonte: Lancet;1(6973):811-2, Apr. 20, 1957.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: There is increased activity of glucose-6-phosphatase in the liver of diabetics compared with non-diabetics. Stabilisation of the diabetes was followed by decreased activity of the enzyme in 13 patients, whether the diabetes was type I, II, or J, and whether insulin or carbutamide had been administered (AU)
