Disorders caused by cellular or humoral immune responses primarily directed towards nervous system autoantigens. The immune response may be directed towards specific tissue components (e.g., myelin) and may be limited to the central nervous system (e.g., MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS) or the peripheral nervous system (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME).
Habitual, repeated, rapid contraction of certain muscles, resulting in stereotyped individualized actions that can be voluntarily suppressed for only brief periods. They often involve the face, vocal cords, neck, and less often the extremities. Examples include repetitive throat clearing, vocalizations, sniffing, pursing the lips, and excessive blinking. Tics tend to be aggravated by emotional stress. When frequent they may interfere with speech and INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS. Conditions which feature frequent and prominent tics as a primary manifestation of disease are referred to as TIC DISORDERS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp109-10)
Disorders characterized by recurrent TICS that may interfere with speech and other activities. Tics are sudden, rapid, nonrhythmic, stereotyped motor movements or vocalizations which may be exacerbated by stress and are generally attenuated during absorbing activities. Tic disorders are distinguished from conditions which feature other types of abnormal movements that may accompany another another condition. (From DSM-IV, 1994)
An anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent, persistent obsessions or compulsions. Obsessions are the intrusive ideas, thoughts, or images that are experienced as senseless or repugnant. Compulsions are repetitive and seemingly purposeful behavior which the individual generally recognizes as senseless and from which the individual does not derive pleasure although it may provide a release from tension.
A neuropsychological disorder related to alterations in DOPAMINE metabolism and neurotransmission involving frontal-subcortical neuronal circuits. Both multiple motor and one or more vocal tics need to be present with TICS occurring many times a day, nearly daily, over a period of more than one year. The onset is before age 18 and the disturbance is not due to direct physiological effects of a substance or a another medical condition. The disturbance causes marked distress or significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. (From DSM-IV, 1994; Neurol Clin 1997 May;15(2):357-79)

The study of normal and abnormal behavior of children.
Carcinoma characterized by bands or cylinders of hyalinized or mucinous stroma separating or surrounded by nests or cords of small epithelial cells. When the cylinders occur within masses of epithelial cells, they give the tissue a perforated, sievelike, or cribriform appearance. Such tumors occur in the mammary glands, the mucous glands of the upper and lower respiratory tract, and the salivary glands. They are malignant but slow-growing, and tend to spread locally via the nerves. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Effects on the ciliated epithelium of protein D-producing and -nonproducing nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae in nasopharyngeal tissue cultures. (1/150)

A pair of isogenic, nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae strains, one expressing protein D and the other protein D-negative, was compared in their ability to cause damage in a human nasopharyngeal tissue culture model. Damage was assessed by measuring the ciliary beat frequency (CBF) of tissue specimens at 12 h intervals. Cultures inoculated with H. influenzae manifested a decrease in CBF beginning after 12 h, with a maximum decrease after 36 h. The impairment of ciliary function by the protein D-expressing strain was significantly greater than that caused by the protein D-negative mutant (P<.01). Tissue specimens examined by scanning and transmission electron microscopy after 24 h appeared normal. After 48 h of incubation, the protein D-expressing strain caused a significant loss of cilia. These findings suggest that protein D is involved in the pathogenesis of upper respiratory tract infections due to nontypeable H. influenzae, probably by enhancing functional and morphological damage to cilia.  (+info)

Residual low-level viral replication could explain discrepancies between viral load and CD4+ cell response in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients receiving antiretroviral therapy. (2/150)

We report the evolution of chronic infection with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in a patient treated with stavudine plus didanosine, whose CD4+ lymphocyte count progressively decreased, despite a sustained plasma viral load <20 copies/mL. After 12 months of therapy, treatment was switched to zidovudine plus lamivudine plus nelfinavir. CD4+ T cell count decreased from 559 x 10(6)/L at month 0 to 259 x 10(6)/L at month 12. Plasma viral load decreased from 21,665 HIV-1 RNA copies/mL at baseline (month 0) to <20 copies/mL after 1 month of therapy with stavudine plus didanosine, and remained below 20 copies/mL until month 12, but always >5 copies/mL. Viral load in tonsilar tissue at month 12 was 125,000 copies/mg of tissue. After the change to triple-drug therapy, the plasma viral load decreased to 5 copies/mL, the CD4+ T cell count increased to 705 x 10(6)/L, and the viral load in tonsilar tissue decreased to <40 copies/mg of tissue at month 24. A low level of HIV-1 replication could explain the lack of immunologic response in patients with apparent virological response.  (+info)

Amoxicillin for fever and sore throat due to non-exudative pharyngotonsillitis: beneficial or harmful? (3/150)

OBJECTIVES: To determine duration of signs and symptoms and adverse reactions after treatment with amoxicillin of patients with fever and sore throat due to non-exudative pharyngotonsillitis. DESIGN: This was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial. Outpatients at four medical centers were enrolled. Patients over 5 years of age presented with fever and sore throat for less than 10 days due to non-exudative pharyngotonsillitis. Cases with any of the following symptoms or illness were excluded: earache, nasal discharge with foul smell, rheumatic fever, valvular heart disease, renal disease, and penicillin hypersensitivity. Amoxicillin or identical placebo at the dosage of 50 mg/ kg per day was given three or four times daily for 7 days. RESULTS: There were 1217 patients enrolled in this study. Some were lost to follow-up, which is the reason for the variability in number of cases in these analyses. After therapy, duration of fever was 2.46 and 2.48 days (P = 0.78) and of sore throat 3.01 and 3.04 days (P = 0.80) in amoxicillin (n = 431) and placebo (n = 436) groups, respectively. Complications were clinically documented in 13 (2.5%) and 16 (3.0%) cases in amoxicillin (n = 527) and placebo (n = 524) groups (P = 0.56). Two cases (0.46% and 0.46%) from each group (n= 433 and 431) were positive by antistreptolysin O antibody determination. The history of carditis and abnormal urinalysis after treatment were not obtained. CONCLUSIONS: Amoxicillin therapy for non-exudative pharyngotonsillitis conferred no beneficial or harmful effect.  (+info)

Comparison of short-course (5 day) cefuroxime axetil with a standard 10 day oral penicillin V regimen in the treatment of tonsillopharyngitis. (4/150)

Oral penicillin V given three times daily in doses of 50,000-100,000 IU daily has been the standard treatment for tonsillopharyngitis for the last few decades. These regimens, initially recommended by the American Heart Association, were extrapolated from i.v. dosing with long-acting forms of penicillin which had been shown to prevent post-streptococcal sequelae. More recently, several antibiotics, including cefuroxime axetil, have been shown to be at least as effective as penicillin G in eradicating group A beta-haemolytic streptococci (GABHS) but their influence on post-streptococcal sequelae has never been assessed in a large-scale trial. The German Society for Pediatric Infectious Diseases (DGPI) undertook a large study of culture-proven tonsillopharyngitis involving several agents and included a 1 year follow-up to establish the effect on sequelae. In one arm of this study, cefuroxime 250 mg bid was compared with 50,000 IU penicillin V given in three divided doses. Cefuroxime axetil was more effective than oral penicillin V in eradicating GABHS at the assessment 2-4 days post-treatment (441/490 (90%) patients versus 1196/1422 (84%) patients; P = 0.001). Clinically, the two agents were equivalent in efficacy, and carriage rates were similar (11.1% and 13.8%, respectively) in patients receiving cefuroxime axetil and penicillin V, 7-8 weeks post-treatment. One case of glomerular nephritis occurred in a patient given penicillin V. There were no post-streptococcal sequelae confirmed for patients treated with cefuroxime axetil. The findings confirm the previously reported efficacy of short-course (4-5 day) treatments with cefuroxime axetil and indicate that short-course treatment is comparable to the standard oral penicillin V regimen in preventing post-streptococcal sequelae.  (+info)

Interaction of Bordetella pertussis with human respiratory mucosa in vitro. (5/150)

The human respiratory tract pathogen Bordetella pertussis is the major cause of whooping cough in infants and young children, and also causes chronic cough in adults. B. pertussis infection damages ciliated epithelium in the respiratory tract. However, the interaction of the bacterium with the respiratory mucosa is poorly understood, and previous studies have either utilized animal tissue which may not be appropriate, or isolated cell systems which lack the complexity of the respiratory mucosa. We have studied the interaction of B. pertussis strain BP536 with human nasal turbinate tissue in an air-interface organ culture over 5 days. We have also compared infection by BP536 with two other strains, Tohama I and CN2992, to determine whether the interactions observed with BP536 are consistent, and, in both nasal turbinate and adenoid organ cultures at 24 h, to determine whether there were differences between tissue from different parts of the respiratory tract. BP536 adhered to cilia, most commonly at their base, and disorganized their spatial arrangement, they also adhered to damaged tissue and mucus, but very rarely to unciliated cells. Within the first 24 h there was a five-fold increase in bacterial density on ciliated cells, and the total number of adherent bacteria increased up to 96 h. Infection caused increased mucus at 24h and an increase in damaged epithelium from 72 h which involved both ciliated and unciliated cells. The number of residual ciliated cells did not decrease after 72 h. The three different strains of B. pertussis exhibited similar interactions with the mucosa, and there was no tissue specificity for adenoid or turbinate tissue. We conclude that B. pertussis adhered to multiple sites on the mucosa and caused hypersecretion and epithelial damage which are the pathological changes described in vivo.  (+info)

Adenoids provide a microenvironment for the generation of CD4(+), CD45RO(+), L-selectin(-), CXCR4(+), CCR5(+) T lymphocytes, a lymphocyte phenotype found in the middle ear effusion. (6/150)

Adenoidectomy in children with otitis media with effusion reduces inflammation in the middle ear by an unknown mechanism. Potentially, the adenoids of these children may serve as a site for the differentiation of lymphocytes, which after entering blood circulation eventually extravasate in the middle ear mucosa and thereby contribute to excessive inflammation. During lymphocyte extravasation various adhesion molecules and chemokines play a crucial role. To evaluate possible connections between the adenoids and middle ear inflammation, the expression of the chemokine receptors CXCR4 and CCR5 and the lymphocyte homing receptor L-selectin were analyzed in adenoidal and middle ear lymphocytes. It was found that most CD4(+) T lymphocytes in the middle ear effusion express the memory phenotype marker CD45RO and the chemokine receptors CXCR4 and CCR5, but are negative for the lymphocyte homing receptor L-selectin. This cell phenotype was rare in peripheral blood but was found much more frequently in the adenoids. The results suggest that the adenoids provide a microenvironment for the generation for CD4(+), CD45RO(+), L-selectin(-), CXCR4(+) and CCR5(+) T lymphocytes. Further, these cells may include cells that have the capacity to home to the middle ear mucosa. As the adenoidal CD4(+) memory phenotype CD45RO(+) T cells expressed the activation antigen CD69 and included cells expressing the HIV co-receptors CXCR4 and CCR5 at a high level, they may be permissive for HIV infection.  (+info)

Cytokeratin 17 is expressed in cells infected with respiratory syncytial virus via NF-kappaB activation and is associated with the formation of cytopathic syncytia. (7/150)

We used differential display to detect enhanced expression of an mRNA fragment encoding cytokeratin 17 (Ck-17) in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-infected epithelial cells. Expression increased 12-fold by 96 h after infection but remained unchanged in cells challenged with virus in the presence of neutralizing anti-RSV fusion protein antibody. Immunoblots of RSV-infected cell lysates probed with an anti-keratin antibody demonstrated stable expression of total cytokeratins over time. When probed with an anti-Ck-17 monoclonal antibody, Ck-17 was first detected at 4 days after infection. In situ staining demonstrated that Ck-17 expression localized to regions of syncytia formation. Expression of Ck-17 mRNA also increased in response to intracellular RSV-F protein in the absence of active RSV infection. No increase in Ck-17 mRNA expression and no syncytia were observed in RSV-infected cells grown in the presence of the NF-kappaB inhibitor gliotoxin. These results suggest that RSV-induced transcriptional activation of the Ck-17 gene is dependent on an NF-kappaB-associated signaling pathway.  (+info)

Human nasopharyngeal-associated lymphoreticular tissues. Functional analysis of subepithelial and intraepithelial B and T cells from adenoids and tonsils. (8/150)

Subepithelial and intraepithelial lymphocytes of human adenoids and tonsils were characterized and directly compared to determine the potential contribution of these tissues to mucosal and systemic immune responses. The distribution of T and B cell subsets, cytokine patterns, and antibody (Ab) isotype profiles were similar for adenoids and tonsils. Both tissues contained predominantly B cells ( approximately 65%), approximately 5% macrophages, and 30% CD3(+) T cells. The T cells were primarily of the CD4(+) subset ( approximately 80%). Tonsillar intraepithelial lymphocytes were also enriched in B cells. The analysis of dispersed cells revealed a higher frequency of cells secreting IgG than IgA and the predominant Ig subclass profiles were IgG1 > IgG3 and IgA1 > IgA2, respectively. In situ analysis also revealed higher numbers of IgG- than IgA-positive cells. These IgG-positive cells were present in the epithelium and in the subepithelial zones of both tonsils and adenoids. Mitogen-triggered T cells from tonsils and adenoids produced both Th1- and Th2-type cytokines, clearly exhibiting their pluripotentiality for support of cell-mediated and Ab responses. Interestingly, antigen-specific T cells produced interferon-gamma and lower levels of interleukin-5. These results suggest that adenoids and tonsils of the nasopharyngeal-associated lymphoreticular tissues represent a distinct component of the mucosal-associated lymphoreticular tissues with features of both systemic and mucosal compartments.  (+info)

Bacterial infections of the tonsils, especially those caused by Streptococcus, are first treated with antibiotics. Tonsillectomy, removal of the tonsils and/or adenoids (adenoidectomy), can be an option when infections return frequently even after antibiotic therapy or if there is difficulty breathing with the enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids.. Frequent infections of the adenoids can lead to frequent ear infections and collection of fluid in the middle ear that may cause temporary hearing loss. Removal of the adenoids may help some children with chronic earaches accompanied by fluid in the middle ear (called otitis media with effusion).. In adults, the possibility of cancer or a tumor may be another reason for removing the tonsils and adenoids. In some patients, especially those with infectious mononucleosis, severe enlargement may obstruct the airway. For those patients, treatment with steroids (e.g., Prednisone) is sometimes helpful.. ...
Several years ago, operations to remove tonsils and adenoids were very common. These operations are done less commonly these days and the main indications for them being advised are discussed above. As with all operations, there is a risk involved with surgery.. For example, possible complications of surgery include infection, severe bleeding from the sites where the tonsils or adenoids were removed, and anaesthetic reactions. Also, after adenoids are removed, there is a small risk that speech may become nasal. That is, a child may sound as if they are speaking through their nose. This is because after the adenoids are removed, the gap between the back part of the nose cavity and the roof of the mouth may not close properly, as it should do when we talk. If this occurs, it may only be temporary. However, in a small number of cases speech therapy is needed, or even an operation to narrow the gap.. The amount of benefit gained from having tonsils and/or adenoids removed is not clear. It is a ...
Enlarged adenoids can become nearly the size of a ping pong ball and completely block airflow through the nasal passages. Even if enlarged adenoids are not substantial enough to physically block the back of the nose, they can obstruct airflow enough so that nasal breathing requires an uncomfortable amount of work, and inhalation occurs instead through mouth breathing. Adenoids can also obstruct the nasal airway enough to affect the voice without actually stopping nasal airflow altogether.[1] Nasal blockage is determined by at least two factors: 1) the size of the adenoids, and 2) the size of the nasal pharynx passageway. The adenoid usually reaches its greatest size by about age 5 years or so, and then fades away (atrophies) by late childhood - generally by the age of 7 years. The lymphoid tissue remains under the mucosa of the nasopharynx, and could be seen under a microscope if the area was biopsied, but the mass is so reduced in size that the roof of the nasopharynx becomes flat rather than ...
Bacterial infections of the tonsils, especially those caused by streptococcus, are first treated with antibiotics. Removal of the tonsils (tonsillectomy) and/or adenoids (adenoidectomy) may be recommended if there are recurrent infections despite antibiotic therapy, and/or difficulty breathing due to enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids. Such obstruction to breathing causes snoring and disturbed sleep that leads to daytime sleepiness, and may even cause behavioral or school performance problems in some children.. Chronic infections of the adenoids can affect other areas such as the eustachian tube-the passage between the back of the nose and the inside of the ear. This can lead to frequent ear infections and buildup of fluid in the middle ear that may cause temporary hearing loss. Studies also find that removal of the adenoids may help some children with chronic earaches accompanied by fluid in the middle ear (otitis media with effusion).. In adults, the possibility of cancer or a tumor may be ...

This study compared the aetiology and pathological characteristics of adult and childhood adenoid hypertrophy (AH). Clinical and morphological features and accompanying otolaryngological pathologies were recorded in 40 adults and 23 children undergoing adenoidectomy for obstructive AH. Both AH forms were similar in terms of symptomatology and associated inflammations. There were, however, significant differences in otitis media rate, with effusion and dullness, and retraction in the eardrum both more prevalent in childhood AH. Adult AH was associated with nasal septum deviation in 25.0% of patients. Histopathological features of adenoidal lymphoid tissue were dissimilar in the two groups: numerous lymph follicles with prominent germinal centres was the chief finding in childhood adenoids, whereas adult adenoids showed chronic inflammatory cell infiltration and secondary changes (e.g. squamous metaplasia). These results underline the importance of considering AH as a cause or contributing factor ...

Antibiotics are first used if bacterial infections of the tonsils are caused by streptococcus.. If there are recurrent infections (despite antibiotic therapy), and/or difficulty breathing due to enlarged tonsils/adenoids, a tonsillectomy or an adenoidectomy may be needed. Obstruction can lead to snoring and disturbed sleep patterns, which can then lead to daytime sleepiness, and behavioral/school performance problems in children.. If the adenoids become chronically infected, other areas can get affected, such as the eustachian tube (the passageway between the back of the nose and the inside of the ear).

Adenoiditis is an infection of the adenoids. The adenoids are the lymph tissues which are found in the pharynx. The pharynx is located at the back of the nasal area. The main function of adenoids is to aid human body in fighting against various types of infections caused by different agents in the body. In other words, they provide complete protection to the throat. Adenoids work in association with tonsils to fight with infections. But sometimes inflammation or swelling occurs in these tissues and this condition is known as adenoiditis. There are multiple causes for adenoiditis.. Allergies- Some people and especially children are allergic to certain types of foods. When they consume these foods, it leads to soreness in their throat and in turn causes adenoiditis. Apart from this, allergens are present in air as well. When a person who is allergic breathes in this contaminated air, it leads to infections in throat and tonsils.

The exploration of tridimensional (3D) technology of computational tomography and the development of valid 3D printed models may improve the assessment of adenoid obstruction. The identification of an enlarged adenoid in childhood would streamline the referral of appropriately selected cases to an otolaryngologist, leading to early treatment of affected children when indicated. The objective of this study is to validate the use of a 3D printed model depicting adenoid hypertrophy based on the pediatric otolaryngologist, head and neck surgeon (OHNS) participants assessment. A cross-sectional study was performed to develop and validate 3D depictions, including print-outs, of the nasopharynx including different degrees of Adenoidal Hypertrophy (AH). The print-outs were obtained from 14 Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans of 14 children (12 boys, 2 girls; mean age of 10.61 years) representing grades 1, 2, 3, and 4 nasopharyngeal adenoidal obstructions, according to a previously Nasoendoscopy-graded
The adenoids are tonsillar tissue located behind the soft palate at the back of the nose. Enlarged adenoids can cause blockage/infection in the eustachian tube, cause nasal obstruction and difficulty breathing, and recurrent sinus infections.. Surgical removal of the adenoids is minor surgery, taking 30 minutes and patients return home the same day. Rare complications include bleeding and escape of nasal fluid.. At Shea, Dr. Staffels patients report fewer episodes of ear fluid, less infections, fewer sinus problems and better breathing.. ...
It is almost certain that your baby has enlarged and infected adenoids with a post-nasal mucous drip. He must be seen by an ENT specialist. If he is snoring this means that his nose is very blocked indeed. He will need to have his adenoids removed, but being so young it will be difficult for the suregon to remove your babys adenoids now. It is essential to clear is nose as best as possible until the operation can be done. I suggest that the ENT surgeon prescibes Flixonase Nasules once daily for a 10 day period to help to open your babys nose until he is old enough for further treatment.. ...
Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea is a medical condition that affects children. It is a sleep-related disorder in which the childs breathing is blocked while sleeping.

Tonsillitis and adenoiditis (together, called Adenotonsillar Disease) are serious infections that may lead to other serious complications if left untreated. Your doctor may recommend having tonsils and adenoids removed at the same time. Tonsils and adenoids are part of the lymphatic system helping to fight infection. Studies have shown that their removal does not have an effect on the immune system. It is believed these glands are most helpful in the childs first year. Very young children may spend the night in the hospital following a T&A so they can be monitored for breathing difficulties and dehydration. Other patients generally go home the same day as surgery. Recovery follows the recommendations for tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. A sore throat and slight fever is normal. Patients need to be monitored for fever above 102 degrees and dehydration. ...
Background: Adenoid hypertrophy treatment for children is generally planned in accordance with the degree of airway obstruction and related morbidity. If surgical treatment is indicated, the individual risk/benefit analysis of patients should be assessed in terms of anesthetic and postoperative complications. Although there are few alternative treatment options, these may be considered as a nonsurgical approach in less serious cases. Accordingly, studies about intranasal steroid applications under various protocols have been presented. ...

Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) affects at least 2-3% of children and may have substantial adverse impact on behavior and cognition. Adenotonsillectomy (AT), the second most common surgical procedure in children, is now performed more often for suspected SDB than for any other indication. However, recent studies among an increasingly obese population now show something alarming: many if not most children still have SDB after AT, and many still suffer from residual neurobehavioral morbidity. Furthermore, the investigators ongoing, 12-year, NIH-funded research has shown that standard preoperative polysomnographic measures of SDB do not consistently predict post-AT improvement in behavior and cognition. This may arise in part because many children after AT still have SDB, and because linear relationships between standard SDB measures and neurobehavioral morbidity may not exist. Even at subtle levels, SDB may promote significant neurobehavioral morbidity. Some have suggested that ...
The aim of this thesis was two-fold: first, to evaluate four different functional aspects of the speech and language spectrum; oral-motor function, voice, /s/-articulation and phonology in preschool children with tonsillar hypertrophy before and after surgical treatment. The second aim was to investigate weather the outcome of surgery was equal for two surgical techniques; tonsillectomy or tonsillotomy combined with adenoidectomy when necessary. In all included publications (I-IV), 67 children on waiting list for tonsil surgery and randomized to either tonsillectomy (33) or tonsillotomy (34) participated. The children were assessed and audio-recorded within a month before surgery and six months postoperatively. Results were compared to age-matched control groups.. In the first study, oral motor function was assessed using the Nordic Orofacial Test-Screening, NOT-S, consisting of a structured interview and a clinical examination. Before surgery, the children in the study group differed in all ...
00160 Patient Information Removal of tonsils and/or adenoids is one of the most frequently performed throat operations. It has proven to be a safe, effective surgical method to resolve breathing obstruction, throat infections and manage recurrent childhood ear disease. Pain following surgery is an unpleasant side effect, which can be reasonably controlled with medication. It is similar to the pain patients have experienced with throat infections, but often is also felt in the ears after surgery. There are also some risks associated with removal of tonsils and/or adenoids. Post operative bleeding occurs in about 2% of cases, most often immediate, although it can occur at any time during the first 2 weeks after surgery. Treatment of bleeding is usually an outpatient procedure, but sometimes requires control in the operating room under general anesthesia. In rare cases, a blood transfusion may be recommended. Because swallowing is painful after surgery, there may be poor oral intake of fluids. If ...

This is a reprint of a press release published on 24/7 Press Release. Chicago: ADD & ADHD Prevention and Treatment: Sleep Disordered Breathing in Young Children Is a Primary Cause of ADD, ADHD and Bed-Wetting.. Early correction of upper airway problems in young children can frequently prevent development of ADD and ADHD. Sleep Disordered Breathing can be addressed in children as young as two with the Perfect Start System.. There is excellent evidence of the relationship of Sleep Disordered breathing and ADD, ADHD and Bed-Wetting. Sleep Disordered breathing is caused by small constricted airways and blockages from tonsils and adenoids. Children with large tonsils and adenoids frequently have constricted airways as well.. The airways of our children are systematically being destroyed, a fact known to Anthropologists but ignored by the overall medical and dental professional communities. Prior to 400 years ago Dental Malocclusions were virtually non-existent. The crowded teeth and narrow arches ...
I found this site after a google search for child gaining weight after surgery. My daughter had a inguinal hernia repair when she ws 4 1/2. By the time she turned 5, she had gone from a size 4T clothes, to 6X. She is now 9 and weighs 102 lbs. As a competitive swimmer, she is very active. I, too, have brought this up to her Dr and got the blow off. Im curious if anesthesia may disrupt metabolism for some people. My MIL had her tonsils out when she was a small child (6yrs old, I think) and gained weight too. She struggled with weight her entire childhood/young adulthood. She also has a thyroid problem. (Since she was 13!!!) I have 2 other children, and when they turned 5 I felt like I was waiting for them to pack on the pounds.....both kids are as thin as can be. My daughters physician has recommended REALLY paying attention to her eating habits/portion size. We are doing that, and will see how it goes.....but I know she didnt start eating any differently the day after she had her hernia ...
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been closely associated with undifferenciated nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and T/ NK nasal non Hodgkin lymphoma. Nevertheless, the presence of EBV in non neoplastic lymphoid tissue of the nasopharynx has been rarely investigated. In a previous study by our group, using in situ hybridization to detect EBV in adenoids of children (2-13 years old) resected because of nasal obstruction due to hypertrophy, we found EBV genome in 72% of the cases. It was now intended to study the frequency of EBV expression in adenoids from children that underwent surgical removal, belonging to a lower age group (1-2 years old). It was also intended to establish which lymphoid subsets are involved in this infection. Adenoidal paraffin sections from 21 patients aged 1-2 years old (mean 1.6 years), 15 males and six females were submitted to double labeling: in situ hybridization with EBER 1/2 probes to detect EBV and immunohistochemistry to determine the lymphocyte typing of EBV-positive ...
