Abstract
A total of 1,729 children (2nd-9th grades) in South Africa, Iceland, Poland, Australia, the U.K., and the U.S.A. rated 20 events in terms of how upsetting they are. Save in Poland, the ratings were in close agreement (r, .85-.97), placing the loss of parent at the top and a new baby sibling at the bottom. In Poland, the baby's arrival led the list. Even so, what was seen as quite upsetting fell everywhere in the same two categories--experiences that threaten one's sense of security and those that occasion personal denigration and embarrassment.

Abstract
We report a case of Sézary syndrome in a patient who was in the immediate vicinity of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor accident 18 months prior to presentation. A complex, frameshift p53 gene mutation was subsequently identified in tumour tissue, consisting of an 8-base pair deletion and a T-->G point mutation in exon 7. This is characteristic of damage caused by ionizing radiation, which suggests a causal link between exposure to ionizing radiation and the subsequent development of Sézary syndrome, a rare form of T-cell leukaemia/lymphoma.
