2.  Noise-induced hearing loss and blood pressure. 
Canadian Medical Association Journal  1979;120(9):1082-1084.
From a group of industrial workers who had a noise-induced hearing loss of at least 30 dB at 4000 Hz 62 were randomly selected after stratification. Controls matched for age and duration of employment were also selected. Resting blood pressures were measured and audiometry was repeated. The findings are presented by age group and for the two groups as a whole. No relation between systolic or diastolic blood pressure and hearing loss was found, and equal proportions of each group had blood pressures exceeding 140/90 mm Hg. Persons with greater hearing loss (more than 60 dB at 4000 Hz) did not have significantly higher blood pressures than their matched controls.

3.  Cutaneous vasculitis. 
In this paper the current concepts of cutaneous vasculitis are reviewed, with emphasis on clinical patterns, strict pathologic criteria and mechanisms of injury. A plea is made to classify vasculitis not as syndromes but (a) according to organ involvement (limited cutaneous or complicated multisystem), (b) by cause, (c) by pathologic description and (d) by anatomic depth and type of vessel involvement.

5.  Postsplenectomy sepsis due to influenzal viremia and pneumococcemia. 
A 31-year-old man, who had undergone splenectomy 18 months previously because of hereditary spherocytosis, suddenly became ill, with fever, vomiting, epigastric pain and shock, and died 10 hours after the onset of his symptoms. Autopsy showed influenzal viremia, pneumococcemia and bilateral adrenal hemorrhage. The rapid course of the patient's illness emphasizes the serious risk of sepsis for individuals who have had a splenectomy. Anti-influenza immunization in such patients should be considered.
