Introduction: Peri-tonsillar abscess remains one of the most frequent serous complications of oropharyngeal or dental infections. It can evolve to parapharyngeal and/or retropharyngeal spaces. It can be life-threatning and, more rarely, neurological complications are described. Observations: We report the case of a 56 year old woman who developed within few days a progressive tetraparesia due to cervical medullary compression. This compression was consecutive to an epidurite which was a complication of a retropharyngeal abscess. The only surgical act was a cervicotomy to drain the abscess and identify the pathological germ. A targeted antibiotherapy was quickly begun. The recovery was obtained rather quickly and the neurological evolution was good. After one year, the cervical spine presents a post-infectious deformation without sign of root or spinal-cord compression. Conclusion: A cervical tetraparesia induced by spondylodiscitis and epiduritis following a retropharyngeal abscess with Staphylococcus aureus is a rare complication. Adequate diagnosis, as fast as possible, is mandatory in order to carry out an adapted antibiotherapy in the hopes of a complete recovery. The place of surgery on the spine remains to be specified.

We studied a patient in a minimally conscious state using PET and cognitive evoked potentials. Cerebral metabolism was below half of normal values. Auditory stimuli with emotional valence ( infant cries and the patient's own name) induced a much more widespread activation than did meaningless noise; the activation pattern was comparable with that previously obtained in controls. Cognitive potentials showed preserved P300 responses to the patient's own name. [less ▲]

Calcium (Ca) supplements have positive effects in growing children, reduce bone loss in late-postmenopausal women with a low calcium diet and, in association with vitamin D3 supplements, may reduce non-vertebral fracture rates in elderly women. However, for many formulated pharmaceutical products their relative beneficial effects have not been conclusively established. We have compared the acute (6 h) metabolic responses following oral administration of two preparations of calcium gluconolactate and carbonate (CG and CG'), tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and calcium citrate (CC), given on separate occasions in each of 10 healthy young male volunteers. The subjects fasted overnight for 12 h and continued to fast during the experimental procedure. A 1000 mg dose of each Ca salt was ingested at weekly intervals. Blood was drawn after 30, 60, 90, 120, 180, 240, 300 and 360 min for measurement of serum Ca, phosphorus (P), parathyroid hormone (PTH) and whole plasma calcitonin (iCT). All Ca supplements induced significant (+6.4% to +8.1%; p < 0.01) increases in Ca and significant suppression of PTH (-37.4% to -57.4%; p < 0.01). Comparison of response curves revealed significantly (p < 0.01) more marked Ca increase and PTH suppression with CC than with the other three Ca salts. CG' and CC induced marginal decreases in serum P and the overall curve of P variations was different for TCP compared with CG, CG' and CC. No significant variation of iCT was recorded during the test.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) [less ▲]
