Enantiornithes are the most successful group of Mesozoic birds, arguably representing the first global avian radiation, and commonly resolved as the sister to the Ornithuromorpha, the clade within which all living birds are nested. The wealth of fossils makes it feasible to comparatively test evolutionary hypotheses about the pattern and mode of eco-morphological diversity of these sister clades that co-existed for approximately 65 Ma. Here, we report a new Early Cretaceous enantiornithine, Yuanchuavis kompsosoura gen. Read More

Objectives: Peroxisome Biogenesis Disorders in the Zellweger Spectrum (PBD-ZSD) are autosomal recessive disorders characterized by defects in peroxisome function, biosynthesis, and/or assembly. Despite its frequent documentation, hearing loss associated with PBD-ZSD has not been extensively characterized. The purpose of this retrospective natural history study was to better characterize the hearing loss associated with PBD-ZSD and to provide additional insight into the evaluation and management of PBD-ZSD patients with hearing loss.

The genus Gerrhopilus is briefly reviewed with a reevaluation of Gerrhopilus ater suturalis and its elevation to full species. In addition, a new species from Sumatra is described based on a single specimen, one of the three species of Gerrhopilus having both an inferior preocular and inferior ocular, and further distinguishable by the supralabial overlap pattern.

Background The natural history of latent rheumatic heart disease (RHD) detected by echocardiography remains unclear. We aimed to assess the accuracy of a simplified score based on the 2012 World Heart Federation criteria in predicting mid-term RHD echocardiography outcomes in children from 4 different countries. Methods and Results Patient-level baseline and follow-up data of children with latent RHD from 4 countries (Australia, n=62; Brazil, n=197; Malawi, n=40; New Zealand, n=94) were combined. Read More
