Abstract: Estudo comparativo de anticorpos IgG e IgE antileishmania como marcadores de infec o e doen a em área endêmica de leishmaniose visceral na ilha de S o Luis, MA no período de maio de 1999 a maio de 2000. A casuística foi composta de 1.016 menores de 16 anos. Destes, foram randomizados 85 para dosagem de IgE antileishmania pelo ELISA. A prevalência de soropositividade por IgG foi de 17,1% (174 menores) e 0,4% da popula o evoluiu para leishmaniose visceral doen a. A positividade para IgE antileishmania, foi de 43,5% dos 85 indivíduos estudados. Dos 7 casos de calazar no passado analisados, observou-se que todos apresentavam positividade para IgG e 4 (57,14%) permaneciam positivos para IgE, mesmo 7 anos após a cura. Os 3 menores com leishmaniose visceral doen a, apresentaram positividade para IgG e IgE antileishmania. A detec o de IgE antileishmania demonstrou ser marcador de infec o para Leishmania chagasi em área endêmica, n o sendo entretanto, marcador de doen a.

Abstract: htlv-i is associated with a broad spectrum of manifestations, including tropical spastic paraparesis and adult t-cell leukemia/lymphoma. arnold chiari syndrome is a condition characterized by herniation of the cerebellar tonsils through the foramen magnum. this condition should be suspected in all patients with headache and impaired motor coordination. syringomyelia is a developmental anomaly that leads to the formation of an intramedullary cavity. its clinical presentation is classically characterized by syringomyelic dissociation of sensation, with suspended distribution in the proximal portion of the trunk and upper limbs and preservation in other regions. we report here a case of association of the three diseases, which is rare in clinical practice, illustrating the difficulty in the diagnosis and therapeutic management of these conditions.

Abstract: introduction: neoadjuvant chemoradiation promotes tumor size reduction and staging before the surgery, reducing the risk of involving the circumferential resection margin and local recurrence. for patients who have been submitted to the neoadjuvant therapy, the usefulness of a second nuclear magnetic resonance (mri) after chemoradiation has not been clearly explained. objective: assess the degree of tumor regression and downstaging after chemoradiation using mri, compared with the pathology, and its correlation with surgical outcomes and patient prognosis. methods: this study investigated 13 patients. their mean age was 52.3 years and 69.23% were male. results: the agreement in t and n staging was 30.76%, between the second mri and pathology, overestimated in 55.55% of the remaining. t staging agreement was 53.84% and n staging agreement, 61.53%. the circumferential resection margin was free of cancer in 100%. the survival rate was 92%, with 75% disease-free in a mean follow-up of 1-2 years. conclusion: a second mri after chemoradiation can evaluate the degree of tumor regression, but with low compliance in relation to pathology, with tendency to overstaging. more studies are required to confirm these initial observations.

Abstract: Introduction: Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is the second most frequent cause of death in the world. Nevertheless, most victims do survive and need treatment, and hand function is one that has to be dealt with in the rehabilitation process. Kinesio®?Taping (KT) is a bandaging method that can be applied along the muscle fibers to provide stimulation. Studies have shown its efficacy in providing afferent stimuli to weakened muscles, thus eliciting contraction with greater recruiting of motor units and inducing neuroplasticity. Benefits to the paresthesia hand have not been reported. Objective: Investigate the effects of KT on hand function in hemiparetic patients. Material and Methods: An evaluator-blinded, randomized clinical trial involving stroke victims was carried out in a physical therapy outpatient clinic. One group underwent KT intervention and the other was a control group. The Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) and the Box and Block Test (BBT) were used as assessment tools. A data entry form was used in the Epi-info 7 software and descriptive statistics was thus calculated. The software BioStat 5.0 was employed when doing statistical tests. Associations were regarded as statistically significant when p < 0.05. Results: Eight individuals were randomly assigned to two groups. All those who had received treatment with KT had spasticity improved by one point, but there was no significant improvement in BBT. Conclusion: KT was effective when it came to improving spasticity and it may be an option in rehab, but it had no effect on gross manual dexterity. Nevertheless, it can be of help as part of a functional training program.
