Abstract
SUMMARY
Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a condition inherited as an autosomal recessive trait and is characterized by photosensitivity, pigmentary changes, premature skin ageing and malignant tumour development resulting from a defect in DNA repair. A case of stage 3 Xeroderma pigmentosum affecting a young girl and her siblings is presented. This is a rare medical condition which may cause difficulties in making a timely diagnosis.

Wamalwa, DC, Wafula EM, Munyao TM, Murila FV.  2002.  Pattern of use of skin care products in children with and without eczematous skin lesions. Abstract

To compare the pattern of use of skin care products between children with eczematous skin lesions and those without. Case control study. Two well baby clinics at the Kenyatta National Hospital and the Mbagathi District Hospital in Nairobi. Eighty nine infants with eczematous skin lesions and 89 age and sex matched controls without skin lesions. Presence and severity of skin lesions related to the type of skin care products used by the child. Exposure to various products was not significantly different between infants with skin lesions and those without. However, more mothers whose children had a skin rash had made a change in the type of soap and or skin cream used for their child (p<0.0001). The principal reason for changing products was skin rash in the baby and most mothers made changes away from scented baby soap products. The study found no significant difference between the cases and controls regarding the type of skin care products used.

Munyao, TM.  1986.  Antimicrobial sensitivity in cholera in Kenya. Abstract

Investigations were carried out with a view to
establishing vibrio cholerae susceptibility to
various antimicrobial agents. Tetracycline,
chlorampenicol, co-trimoxazole, Erythromycin,
Ampicillin, Minocycline, Amoxycillin and Nalidixic
acid were included.
Vibrio cholerae strains tested from 178 isolates were
found to be completely resistant to Co-trimoxazole
and amoxycillin. Complete resistance was encountered
to Tetracycline, in Kirinyaga district (N=124) and
highly resistant in Nyanza Province 67%(N=33).
Variable high resistance was also encountered to
Erythromycin 65.2% (N=178) and ampicillin 99.3%(N=l78)

The V. cholerae strains were 100% sensitive to
Minocycline and Nalidixlc acid, and 84.3% sensitive to
chloramphenicol.
The multiple drug resistance encountered is
usually confered by plasmids.
