Armanni-Ebstein lesion, ketoacidosis and starvation in a child.
Summary of "Armanni-Ebstein lesion, ketoacidosis and starvation in a child."
The Armanni- Ebstein lesion was first reported in 1877 and has been associated with deaths due to diabetic ketoacidosis. The lesion consists of subnuclear vacuolation of the kidneys, which contain fat. We report a case of the Armanni- Ebstein lesion in a non-diabetic child with documented ketoacidosis who died of starvation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Performing the role of a parent by care-giving, nurturance, and protection of the child by a natural or substitute parent. The parent supports the child by exercising authority and through consistent, empathic, appropriate behavior in response to the child's needs. PARENTING differs from CHILD REARING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the children and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.
The training or bringing-up of children by parents or parent-substitutes. It is used also for child rearing practices in different societies, at different economic levels, in different ethnic groups, etc. It differs from PARENTING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the child and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.
The psychiatric, sociological and psychological study and treatment of the developing child with emphasis on preventive or prophylactic measures focused on the familial, educational and socio-environmental milieu of the child.
A child whose needs, abilities, or other characteristics vary so much from the average in mental, physical, or social areas that a greater than usual level of services is needed to facilitate the child's maximum potential development.
Battered Child Syndrome
Repeated physical injuries inflicted on the child by the parent, parents, or surrogate parent; often triggered by the child's minor and normal irritating behavior.
The Armanni-Ebstein phenomenon, which is found in the kidneys in diabetic ketoacidosis, has also been proposed as an independent diagnostic postmortem marker for hypothermia. A case is reported to dem...
Retrospective review was undertaken of 46 cases of lethal hypothermia for the presence of subnuclear vacuolization of renal tubular epithelial cells. Fifteen of the 46 cases (33%) had renal tubular va...
Basal vacuolization of renal epithelial cells occurs in diabetic and alcoholic ketoacidosis, hypothermia and starvation. The vacuoles contain triglycerides. Following a case where formalin pigment dep...

A previously healthy boy was admitted with fever, tachycardia, dyspnea, and was vomiting. A blood test showed a severe metabolic acidosis with pH 7.08 and an anion gap of 36 mmol/L. His urine had an...
This study will investigate Ebstein's anomaly, a congenital abnormality of the tricuspid valve of the heart and try to identify the genetic origins of the disease. Adults and children 2 y...
