Abstract
Three cases of visceral leishmaniasis (kala-azar) are presented. One of these was in a 43-year-old patient with AIDS who was infected in Southern Spain. Another was in a man aged 25 years infected in West Africa. These cases are the first two adults to be reported in Denmark. The third case was an 18 month old previously healthy boy, infected in Southern Spain. The symptomtology, diagnosis and treatment of the disease are discussed and it is stressed that serological diagnostic tests have limited value in HIV positive patients.

Abstract
AIM: To describe and analyse neonatal care, short and long-term morbidity with special reference to ventilatory support and chronic lung disease (CLD) in a population-based study. METHODS: During 1994 and 1995 a prospective, nation-wide, multicentre study was conducted, comprising 477 liveborn infants with gestational age (GA) 2 in 4%, and oxygen requirement at 36 and 40 wk of postmenstrual age (CLD) in 16 and 5%, respectively. Three infants either died of CLD (n = 1) or required oxygen therapy beyond 43 wk of postmenstrual age. Logistic regression analysis showed significant associations between oxygen requirement at 40 wk and GA, septicaemia, mechanical ventilation, symptomatic patent ductus arteriosus and Clinical Risk Index for Babies score. Only the two last-mentioned factors proved significant in infants with GA

Abstract
Long-chain polyunsaturated n-3 and n-6 fatty acids are present in human milk, but not in the majority of infant formulas sold in Denmark. The content of the n-3 fatty acid DHA is high in retinal tissue and cerebral cortex. A number of studies have suggested that the content of DHA has a positive influence on the function of cell membranes. Preterm infants receiving human milk or infant formula with DHA have a better visual acuity than those receiving infant formula without DHA. In term infants receiving infant formula the content of DHA in plasma, red blood cell membranes and cerebral tissue is reduced compared to breast-fed infants.

Abstract
AIM: To investigate risk factors of adverse outcome in a cohort of very preterm children treated mainly with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) during the neonatal course. METHODS: In Denmark, preterm children are treated with nasal CPAP as a first approach to respiratory support. A national prospective study of all infants with a birthweight below 1000 g or a gestational age below 28 wk born in 1994-1995 was initiated to evaluate this approach. Of the 269 surviving children 164 (61%) were not treated with mechanical ventilation in the neonatal period. A follow-up of the children at 5 y of age was conducted. Data from the neonatal period and the 5-y follow-up were analysed. RESULTS: In multivariate analyses including 250 children, a severely abnormal neonatal brain ultrasound scan was predictive of cerebral palsy (OR = 19.9, CI 95%: 6.1-64.8) and intellectual disability (OR = 6.2, CI 95%: 2.3-16.5). A high Clinical Risk Index for Babies (CRIB) score (OR = 2.4, CI 95%: 1.1-5.5) and chronic lung disease (OR = 2.8, CI 95%: 1.2-6.9) were predictive of intellectual disability. In univariate analyses mechanical ventilation was associated with cerebral palsy (OR=4.3, CI 95%: 1.7-10.8) and intellectual disability (OR = 2.2, CI 95%: 1.2-4.2), but the associations became insignificant in multivariate analyses including chronic lung disease and a severely abnormal ultrasound scan. CONCLUSION: The associations between neonatal risk factors and adverse outcome in our cohort were very similar to those found in other cohorts with another initial treatment of respiratory insufficiency. We found no significant adverse effects of mechanical ventilation beyond what could be explained by associations with chronic lung disease and IVH 3-4/PVL.
