Since 1978, the authors have observed 7 cases of dissecting aneurysm in the internal carotid artery. Symptoms were severe headache and subsequent neurologic deficit in young persons (3 women, 4 men; mean age 35 years). The underlying pathology was spontaneous dissection of the cervical internal carotid artery, with surgical confirmation in 3 cases and typical angiographic patterns in all cases. Spontaneous dissection of the cervical internal carotid artery is being increasingly recognized as a cause of cerebral ischemia in young adults. Moreover this clinicopathologic event is more common than had previously been supposed. The etiology remains unclear, except in 15% of cases in which dystrophy of the media (Marfan's syndrome) is in cause. No history of cervical trauma can be found. Typical clinical features consist in ipsilateral headache preceding an abrupt neurologic deficit in a 40-year-old person. An incomplete Horner syndrome (oculosympathetic paresis without facial anhidrosis) associated with facial pain and numbness is pathognomonic, but the majority of dissections are less typical. The typical angiographic pattern is an elongated regular stenosis of the high cervical internal carotid artery, 2 cm above the non-involved bulbus ("string sign"). The dissection may modify to a tapered occlusion above the point of origin of the internal carotid artery. The natural course is spontaneous resolution of the stricture, without relapse. Optimal management is non-operative since medical treatment has proved to be efficient. These cases confirm the benign course and overall good prognosis of spontaneous dissections of the internal carotid artery which are not as rare as the scarcity of reports might indicate.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) [less ▲]

Penicillium marneffei infection is a rare fungal disease that cause significant disease in immunosuppressed patients. The geographical distribution of this dimorphic fungus is restricted to Asia, Southeast and Far East, where the disease is considered as an indicator of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Case report. A 42-year old Congolese woman living in Lubumbashi was admitted at the university hospital of Liège for exploration of a general status impairment. She experienced for three months spiking fever, weight loss, productive cough with bloody expectorations and progressive dyspnoea. She reported also to have non-bloody mild diarrhoea with abdominal pain. The HIV antibody status was positive with a low CD4 T lymphocytes count (28/µl). Pulmonary infiltrates were visualized on chest radiography and the computed tomography revealed the presence of a severe pneumopathy characterised by bilateral micronodular lesions. Mediastinal polyadenopathies associated with hepato- and splenomegaly were also highlighted. Bronchoscopy was performed and bronchial aspirations revealed the presence of numerous leucocytes with the presence of intracellular Gram positive organisms suggestive of yeasts. Ziehl, Giemsa and Gomori-Grocott staining were also performed. Ziehl staining was negative. The morphological aspect given by Giemsa staining excluded infection and the PCR specific for T. gondii B1 gene was negative. However, Gomori-Grocott staining revealed the presence of intracellular oval, elongated, sausage-shaped cells with a single transverse septum (3 to 5 µm). Penicillium marneffei was isolated from blood culture and respiratory samples. Intraveinous amphotericin B treatment was administrated during 15 days followed by itraconazole oral administration (200 mg/j). The antimycotic treatment improved the patient condition and despite other clinical troubles she was prematurely discharged because of financial problems. Conclusion. Opportunistic agents involved in HIV-infected patients differ in Africa and Asia and it is important to be able to make a rapid diagnosis with the aid of an experienced laboratory. [less ▲]

A 60 years old patient treated by methotrexate and prednisolone for rheumatoid arthritis, was admitted at the hospital for pulmonary infection refractory to antibiotics. After a few days he was transferred to the intensive care unit for pancytopenia. Direct examination of bone marow revealed the presence of toxoplasma into polymorphonuclears and monocytes. However, in spite of a specific treatment the patient died two days later of disseminated toxoplasmosis. [less ▲]

The dissemination of catabolic plasmids was compared to bioaugmentation by strain inoculation in microcosm experiments. When Rhodococcus erythropolis strain T902, bearing a plasmid with trichloroethene and isopropylbenzene degradation pathways, was used as the inoculum, no transconjugant was isolated but the strain remained in the soil. This plasmid had a narrow host range. Pseudomonas putida strain C8S3 was used as the inoculum in a second approach. It bore a broad host range conjugative plasmid harboring a natural transposon, RP4::Tn4371, responsible for biphenyl and 4-chlorobiphenyl degradation pathways. The inoculating population slowly decreased from its original level (10(6) colony-forming units [CFU]/g of dry soil) to approx 3 x 10(2) CFU/g of dry soil after 3 wk. Transconjugant populations degrading biphenyl appeared in constant humidity soil (up to 2 x 10(3) CFU/g) and desiccating soil (up to 10(4) CFU/g). The feasibility of plasmid dissemination as a bioaugmentation technique was demonstrated in desiccating soils. The ecologic significance of desiccation in bioaugmentation was demonstrated: it upset the microbial ecology and the development of transconjugants. [less ▲]

We analyze the process of resonance trapping due to Poynting-Robertson drag and Stokes drag in the frame of the restricted 3-body problem and in the case of external mean motion resonances. The numerical simulations presented are computed by using the 3-dimensional extended Schubart averaging (ESA) integrator developed by Moons (1994) for all mean motion resonances. We complete it by adding the contributions of the dissipative forces. To follow the philosophy of the initial integrator, we average the drag terms, but we do not make any expansion in series of eccentricity or inclination. We show our results, especially capture around asymmetric equilibria, and compare them to those found by Beaué and Ferraz-Mello (1993, 1994) and Liou et al. (1979). [less ▲]

This paper is concerned with the global analysis of synchrone oscillations in special networks of oscillators. In previous work, we de ned a class of highdimensional, parameter-dependent nonlinear systems exhibiting almost globally asymptotically stable limit cycle oscillations. In this paper, we show how (incremental) dissipativity may be used to extend the global analysis of limit cycle oscillations to networks of coupled identical systems. [less ▲]

This study assesses the dissociability of phonological and lexical-semantic short-term memory (STM) in two aphasic patients, B.N. and T.M., and explores the relationship between their STM deficits and their word production impairment. Picture naming performance suggests phonological language production impairment in B.N. and lexical-semantic language production impairment in T.M. On STM tasks, B.N. presented phonological STM impairment with preserved lexical-semantic STM, while T.M. presented the reverse profile. These results reveal a double dissociation between phonological and lexical-semantic STM capacities and suggest that our patients' STM impairment may be selectively related to their language production deficits [less ▲]
