Abstract: developmental dyslexia is a specific learning disability characterized by difficulty in learning how to read and write. this difficulty affects the auto-concept and the relationships that dyslexics establish with pairs, teachers and parents. to evaluate the social and emotional consequences of development dyslexia diagnosis we did two interviews, oriented by inquiries built for the effect, to a portuguese pupil and to its foreman of education, as a result of a study case, of longitudinal character. the results showed us the necessity of a dyslexia evaluation which will allow us to detect it at an early age and will permit us to make a proper intervention in order to fight school failure. on the other hand, we came to the conclusion that it is fundamental to bring this learning disability to teachers' and other education professionals' attention, so as to avoid situations of discrimination, such as the ones we came across in the course of this study.

Abstract: The aim of this article is to discuss the theoretical issues behind reading processes, the relationbetween this skill and dyslexia, and to present some results from a pseudowords reading test with Portuguesechildren. Developmental dyslexia is a specific learning disability characterized by difficulty inlearning to read, and there is strong evidence that dyslexia is related to underlying deficiencies in phonologicalskills. Phonological deficits establish robust differences between dyslexic and normal readers and,according to the theoretical background, phonological awareness can be assessed with pseudowords tests.In this study, we applied the Pseudo words Reading Test, one of twenty tests of the Battery of Tests toAssess Developmental Dyslexia (BADD) constructed to assess dyslexia in Portuguese children between 7and 12 years old. We gave the Pseudo words Reading Test to 555 Portuguese children, aged 8 to 12.Fifty-seven of these children had been previously assessed by other professionals as dyslexics. We triedto verify how factors like age, gender and learning disabilities influence the acuity in pseudo words readingand if this test can be used to assist in an early diagnosis of developmental dyslexia. The results provethat there are significant differences between dyslexic children and normal readers in reading pseudowords in Portuguese language.

Abstract: newcastle disease is characterized by respiratory manifestations in association with nervous and/or digestive symptoms. its prevention is done by vaccination with live attenuated (lentogenic strains) and/or killed vaccines. the lentogenic strains can lead to strong post-vaccination reaction, principally due to the presence of other pathogenic agents. among them, mycoplasma synoviae is worldwide important, mainly in brazil. the dissemination of this agent in poultry flocks has been achieved due to difficulties in diagnosis and disease reproduction, virulence variations among different m.synoviae strains, and attribution of typical m.synoviae disease manifestation to other disease agents. this experimental study in spf chicks (gallus gallus), previously infected by m.synoviae and thereafter vaccinated against newcastle disease, was done with the objective of evaluating m.synoviae pathogenicity through assessment of post-vaccinal respiratory reactions and serologic responses to newcastle disease virus vaccine in the absence of environmental factors. a total of 86 three days old chicks were used, being 57 infected by eye and nostril drop, with chicken activated m. synoviae strain wvu 1853. seven days later, 21 mycoplasma infected birds plus 29 not mycoplasma infected ones were vaccinated against newcastle disease. as results, the not infected and vaccinated birds yielded, significantly, higher and longer lasting serologic responses to newcastle disease vaccine virus than those infected and vaccinated. similarly, the infected and vaccinated birds yielded lower serologic reactions to m.synoviae than those only mycoplasma infected. no post-vaccinal respiratory reaction was observed in the vaccinated birds.

Abstract: objectives: to identify initial predictive factors of renal involvement in children and adolescents with henoch-sch?nlein purpura. methods: we reviewed the medical records of 142 patients admitted to our university hospital over a 21-year period with a diagnosis of henoch-sch?nlein purpura. the initial predictive factors assessed, observed during the first 3 months, included: demographic data, clinical manifestations (persistent palpable purpura, arthritis, abdominal pain, severe abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, orchitis, central nervous system involvement and pulmonary hemorrhage), laboratory tests (serum iga levels) and treatment given (corticosteroids, intravenous immunoglobulin and immunosuppressive drugs). patients were divided into two groups (presence or absence of nephritis) and assessed by univariate and multivariate analysis. results: evidence of nephritis was detected in 70 patients (49.3%). the univariate analysis revealed that severe abdominal pain (p = 0.0049; or = 1.6; 95%ci 1.18-2.21), gastrointestinal bleeding (p = 0.004; or = 1.6; 95%ci 1.10-2.26) and corticosteroid use (p = 0.0012; or = 1.7; 95%ci 1.28-2.40) were all associated with increased incidence of renal involvement. in the multivariate analysis, logistic regression demonstrated that the only independent variable that predicted nephritis was intense abdominal pain (p < 0.012; or = 2.593; 95%ci 1.234-5.452). conclusions: severe abdominal pain was a significant predictor of nephritis in henoch-sch?nlein purpura. consequently, pediatric patients exhibiting this clinical manifestation should be rigorously monitored, due to the increased risk of renal involvement.

Abstract: lithium is widely used in the therapy of bipolar disorder. its toxicity includes urinary concentration deficit and natriuresis, renal tubular acidosis, tubulointerstitial nephritis which complicates with chronic kidney disease and hypercalcemia. the most common adverse effect is diabetes insipidus, which occurs in 20-40% of patients some weeks after initiation of treatment. such chronic nephropathy correlates with duration of lithium use. early detection of renal dysfunction should be achieved by rigorous monitoring of patients and collaboration between the psychiatrist and nephrologist. recent experimental and clinical studies are now clarifying the mechanisms by which lithium induces renal abnormalities. the aim of this work is to review the pathogenesis, clinical presentation, histopathologic aspects and treatment of lithium nephrotoxicity.
