On behalf of Dr F Saaijman we request the following information or maybe

The question is this : Is there any literature or unpublished

traditionally the common and well known heamaturia, splenomegalie,
aenaemia hepatomegalie etc. Apparently very little is know about the

Please e-mail me with any information.
