[Recommendations for the management of monoclonal gammopathies in biochemistry].
Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematologic malignancy most frequently preceded by a transient state called "pre-myeloma", whose main representatives are the Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance (MGUS) and asymptomatic MM. The biologist has an important role in the diagnosis...
[Butyrylcholinesterase activity in schizophrenic patients].
Butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) is an enzyme that has been investigated for its putative role in neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. The aim of our work was to study BChE activity variations in schizophrenic patients and to investigate the involvement of this enzyme in sch...
[Factor V inhibitor: case report and literature review].
We report the case of a patient who developed a factor V inhibitor and we take the opportunity to make an inventory of the latest data....
Le mot du président.
Respiratory cryptosporidiosis in two patients with HIV infection in a tertiary care hospital in Morocco.
We report two cases of respiratory cryptosporidiosis in patients with HIV infection. The first patient was a 46-year-old person with chronic diarrhea, a two-month history of low-grade fever, progressive dyspnea and productive cough. The search for acid-fast bacillus, Pneumocystis jirovecii, Toxoplas...
[Role of staphylococcal infections in the occurrence of endemic Tunisian pemphigus].
We tested the hypothesis that normal subjects whom presented staphylococcal infections have antibodies against desmoglein. We recruited 29 patients with staphylococcal infections from the dermatology department of the university hospital of Tunis. 29 controls healthy subjects are used to compare the...
[National external quality assessment in auto-immunity: antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies].
The French Health Products Safety Agency organized in 2007, for the scheme of the national external quality assessment, a survey on antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) including detection and identification of the antibodies. This survey allowed to assess the quality of the different method...
[Reliability of immunoturbidimetric urine albumin determination for normal and moderately high values].
We measured albuminuria of 54 patients monitored for their diabetes, with normal to moderately high albuminuria, according to two methods: Microalbumin reagent (Beckman Coulter) on a Unicel DxC 600 (Beckman Coulter) and Albumin Turbiquant reagent (Dade Behring, Siemens) on a Turbitimer system (Dade...
[Automated cell recognition in hematology: CellaVision DM96 TM system].
We routinely analyzed 99 peripheral blood smears, included 9 therapeutic cytopenias, stained with May-GrÃ¼nwald-Giemsa. DM8/96TM is highly efficient in the cellular identification with great security of identity management and timesaving (30% faster than manual microscopy). Major innovations are t...
[Rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis in the diabetic: a better known pathology in Tunisia].
This is a retrospective study including 17 patients with rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis diagnosed in a period of 16 years, between 1992 and 2007, in 8 men and 9 women. All patients were diabetic with ketoacidosis diabetes in 8 cases. Necrosis facial and ophthalmic symptoms were the most frequent...
