Physicians are aware of the importance of influenza viruses and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) as causative agents for severe respiratory illness. Both are responsible for widespread community outbreaks during winter months. Respiratory syncytial virus is the most common cause of serious...
Dr Jackson describes important problems in legitimizing the aging syndrome as a disease and cause of death. Perhaps senility should be reserved for behavioral changes, while the aging syndrome, which can be more definitively described than many other pathological conditions accepted...
A 31-year-old white woman was admitted to the hospital because of a nonproductive, progressively severe cough of six weeks' duration and hemoptysis of two weeks' duration. Treatment with penicillin V potassium, cephalexin monohydrate, and erythromycin sterate was ineffective....
