The Relationship Between Lower Respiratory Tract Microbiome and Allergic Respiratory Tract Diseases in Children.

Front Microbiol 2021 14;12:630345. Epub 2021 May 14.

Capital Institute of Pediatrics, Beijing, China.

Similar to those in the upper respiratory tract, there are microbes present in the healthy human lower respiratory tract (LRT), including the lungs and bronchus. To evaluate the relationship between LRT microbiome and allergic respiratory diseases in children, we enrolled 68 children who underwent bronchoscopy from January 2018 to December 2018 in the affiliated hospital of the Capital Institute of Pediatrics. Using the total IgE (TIgE) values, children were divided into two groups: allergy sensitivity (AS) group and non-allergy sensitivity (NAS) group. Read More

Texas Children's Hospital, Houston, TX; Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.

HACEK organisms (Haemophilus, Aggregatibacter, Cardiobacterium, Eikenella, and Kingella species) are rare causes of endocarditis. HACEK organisms are fastidious and may escape detection by culture techniques, but the use of molecular studies may aid diagnosis. A 10-year review of pediatric HACEK endocarditis cases at Texas Children's Hospital identified 10 patients, with 2 cases recognized by next-generation sequencing, highlighting potential benefits of these assays.
