1. Secondary bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia during treatment of chronic hepatitis C: role of pegylated interferon alfa-2a
The treatment of chronic hepatitis C has frequent side effects such as cytopenias and neuropsychiatric symptoms. However, pulmonary toxicity associated with interferon is rarely described. This paper describes the clinical case of a 67-year-old female patient with chronic hepatitis C who presented an acute onset of dry cough, dyspnoea, and fever 36 weeks aft

3. BOOP and COP.
BOOP and COP are essentially the same condition and represent one of many ways in which the lung may respond to an inflammatory stimulus. Some underlying causes of BOOP have been identified but in many cases no cause can be found. The clinical and radiological features are of a pneumonic illness that responds to corticosteroids rather than antibiotics, but a

5. Open lung biopsy for investigation of acute respiratory episodes in patients with HIV infection and AIDS.
BACKGROUND--Open lung biopsy (OLB) is rarely necessary for investigation of HIV positive patients with acute respiratory episodes because of the high yield from fibreoptic bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL). METHODS--A retrospective review of OLB in HIV positive patients admitted to a specialist inpatient unit with acute respiratory symptoms was
6. Assessment of the Catford drum in visual acuity testing and its use as a measurement of visual performance in low-vision patients.
Objective measurements of visual acuity were determined with the Catford drum in 82 eyes of patients in our Low-Vision Clinic who typically suffered from visual loss due to macular disease. The results were compared with subjective measurements of visual acuity by the Snellen chart. The findings indicated a significant overestimation of Snellen visual acuiti
7. Proximal dentatothalamocortical tract involvement in posterior fossa syndrome
Posterior fossa syndrome is characterized by cerebellar dysfunction, oromotor/oculomotor apraxia, emotional lability and mutism in patients after infratentorial injury. The underlying neuroanatomical substrates of posterior fossa syndrome are unknown, but dentatothalamocortical tracts have been implicated. We used pre- and postoperative neuroimaging to inves
