Multiple bladder diverticula in Williams "Elfin-Facies" syndrome

Pediatric Radiology
D P BabbittR A Boedecker


Twenty-three children with Williams "elfin-facies" syndrome were reviewed. A striking incidence of multiple bladder diverticula was found (8 children of 14 who had voiding cystourethrograms). The diverticula were usually not identifiable on excretory urography. Children generally have a low incidence of bladder diverticula (excluding "Hutch" diverticula), especially multiple diverticula; thus one should strongly consider the diagnosis of Williams syndrome and other connective tissue diseases when multiple bladder diverticula are identified.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.

Long COVID-19

“Long Covid-19” describes illness in patients who are reporting long-lasting effects of the SARS-CoV-19 infection, often long after they have recovered from acute Covid-19. Ongoing health issues often reported include low exercise tolerance and breathing difficulties, chronic tiredness, and mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. This feed follows the latest research into Long Covid.
