Primary Endobronchial Leiomyoma

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.567

ABSTRACT

Leiomyoma accounts for less than 2% of the benign tumours of the lung. These lesions are usually asymptomatic. However, they can present symptoms depending on the localization. The HRCT of a 57-year-old male patient with cough, sputum and shortness of breath ongoing for 2 months revealed a 5 mm lesion in the inferior lingular bronchus. The report of the bronchoscopic biopsy was leiomyoma, and the patient underwent lingulectomy.

Small Babies on a Small Island: Survival of Very Low Birthweight Infants in Antigua and Barbuda 1986 to 2006

Issue: 
Pages: 
29–34
Synopsis: 
Review of survival of all very low birthweight babies (VLBW, birthweight < 1500 g) admitted to the Special Care Nursery in Antigua between January 1986 and December 2006 was performed. Survival to discharge of all VLBW infants improved from 45% to 60%, with survival of those 1000 to 1499g improving from 60 to 83% and those < 1000g from 10 to 28%, comparing 1986–1992 to 2000–2006.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Recent attention has been focussed on pregnancy outcomes in developing countries, with the publication of the World Health Organization Report 2005, Make Every Mother and Child Count and the Neonatal Survival Series from the Lancet in 2005. Scant outcome data from the smaller islands of the Caribbean exist for very low birthweight (VLBW) babies (birthweight < 1500 g).
