Necroqizing enterocolitis with pneumatosis intestinalis in systemic lupus erythematosus and polyarteritis

, : Necroqizing enterocolitis with pneumatosis intestinalis in systemic lupus erythematosus and polyarteritis. Radiology 121(3 Pt. 1): 595-598

Pneumatosis intestinalis was encountered in association with fatal necrotizing enterocolitis in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and polyarteritis nodosa. The radiologic identification of mottled, bubbly and linear collections of intramural intestinal gas distinguished this ominous complication from benign pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis. In the setting of intestinal vasculitis due to SLE or polyarteritis nodosa, these characteristic radiologic features indicated necrotizing enterocolitis. Since corticosteroids may mask clinical progression of the intestinal lesion, radiologic evaluation is essential in the overall management of the patient with intestinal vasculitis.

From 20 cases of actinomycosis of the jaw bone, in 2 of which the soft tissues of cheek and lung were involved, the author isolated the Wolff-Israel organism. In no case did he find the organism of Harz, as described by Bostrom. The organism was c...

The Holliday junction-resolving enzyme Cce1 is a magnesium-dependent endonuclease, responsible for the resolution of recombining mitochondrial DNA molecules in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We have identified a homologue of Cce1 from Candida albicans...

Optimized unfolding allows us t...

The first ~1% of spores released from sporangia (early spores) during Bacillus subtilis sporulation were isolated, and their properties were compared to those of the total spores produced from the same culture. The early spores had significantly l...
