More than just sleeping in: a late timing of sleep is associated with health problems and unhealthy behaviours in adolescents.

Sleep Med 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Department of Psychiatry, McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada; Institute for Health and Social Policy, McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada.

We investigated the associations between chronotype and various health outcomes and behaviours in a national sample of Canadian adolescents.

Methods: Data were from the 2014 Canadian Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children survey (29,470 students; ages 10-18). Read More

Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

Pediatric integrative medicine is an emerging field which, to date, has not been described in detail in academic medical centers in the United States. Early research of pediatric integrative medicine modalities shows promise for the treatment of common pediatric conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, acute and chronic pain, headache, and allergy, among others. In light of the growing prevalence of pediatric illnesses and patient complexity, it is crucial to emphasize the patient's overall well-being. Read More

Relationship between Pain, Somatisation, and Emotional Awareness in Primary School Children.

Pain Res Treat 2018 12;2018:4316234. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Aplysia Onlus, GIFT Institute of Integrative Medicine, Pisa, Italy.

Poor emotional awareness (EA) seems to play an important role in the aetiology of functional somatic complaints featuring pain as a form of somatisation. The aim of this study was to shed more light on this relationship by investigating the links between pain, somatisation, and emotional awareness in a nonclinical population of 445 children aged 6-10. Assessing pain through the Children's Somatisation Inventory (CSI), a very high percentage of the entire sample complained of experiencing pain at least one site (84. Read More

Efficacy and safety of mirabegron, a β3-adrenoceptor agonist, for treating neurogenic bladder in pediatric patients with spina bifida: a retrospective pilot study.

World J Urol 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Urology and Urological Science Institute, Yonsei University College of Medicine, 50 Yonsei-ro, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, 120-752, Republic of Korea.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Pediatric Headache and Migraine: Why to Prescribe and What New Research Is Critical for Advancing Integrated Biobehavioral Care.

Headache 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH, USA.

Purpose Of Review: To highlight current evidence supporting the prescription of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as part of first-line preventive treatment for children and adolescents with headache and discuss a research strategy aimed at: (1) understanding how and why CBT works, and (2) developing effective and efficient approaches for integrating CBT into headache specialty, neurology, and primary care settings.

Recent Findings: Although preventive medications for pediatric headache and migraine are commonly prescribed, recent meta-analyses and an NIH-funded, multi-center clinical trial suggests that the effect of pill-taking therapies may be mostly due to a placebo effect. These findings have led to greater consideration of prescription of non-pharmacological therapies as first-line interventions (either alone or in combination with pill-based therapy). Read More

Department of Molecular and Translational Medicine, Division of Biology and Genetics, School of Medicine, University of Brescia, Brescia, Italy.

Arterial tortuosity syndrome (ATS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the solute carrier family 2 member 10 () gene encoding a glucose/ascorbic acid transporter. The clinical features of ATS are mild-to-severe tortuosity of the large and medium arteries throughout the body, accompanied by dysmorphisms and joint laxity. Vascular changes in different parts of the body lead to stenosis and/or aneurysms requiring difficult surgical procedures. Read More

Ombitasvir/Paritaprevir/Ritonavir With or Without Dasabuvir and With or Without Ribavirin for Adolescents With HCV Genotype 1 or 4.

Hepatol Commun 2018 Nov 5;2(11):1311-1319. Epub 2018 Oct 5.

Department of Pediatrics University of California San Francisco San Francisco CA.

In adults, treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection with ombitasvir (OBV)/paritaprevir (PTV)/ritonavir (r) with or without dasabuvir (DSV) and ±ribavirin (RBV) results in high rates of sustained virologic response (SVR). However, these regimens have not been investigated in adolescents. This ongoing, open-label, phase 2/3 study evaluated the pharmacokinetics, safety, and efficacy of OBV/PTV/r+DSV±RBV treatment for 12 weeks in adolescents infected with HCV genotype (GT) 1 without cirrhosis (part 1) and the safety and efficacy of OBV/PTV/r±DSV±RBV treatment for 12 or 24 weeks in adolescents infected with GT1 or GT4 without cirrhosis or with compensated cirrhosis (parts 1 and 2).

J Child Neurol 2018 Nov 5:883073818807516. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

3 Departments of Neurology and Pediatrics, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

Over the past 2 decades, various telehealth technologies, in particular synchronous video teleconferencing between provider and patient, have been incorporated into the practice of neurology. The practice of child neurology is now starting to take advantage of these rapidly evolving resources. This review describes the evolution of tele-neurology, starting with adult tele-stroke services and expanding to the management of both adults and children with a variety of chronic neurologic disorders including epilepsy, headache, movement disorders, and neurodevelopmental disabilities.

Autoimmune Progesterone Dermatitis Diagnosed by Lymphocyte Transformation Test and Progesterone Provocation Test.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2018 Oct;26(3):276-277

Assoc. Prof. Suzana Ljubojević Hadžavdić, MD, PhD, Department of Dermatology and Venereology University Hospital Center Zagreb School of Medicine University of Zagreb, Šalata 4, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia;

Autoimmune progesterone dermatitis (APD) is rare autoimmune response to endogenous progesterone or to earlier exposure to exogenous progesterone (1). Skin lesions typically occur due to increases in progesterone during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle (2). A-31-year-old mother of two children presented to our Department with a 5-year history of pruritic and painful erythematosus macules, papules, and patches on her neck, pectoral region, and face, which appeared 2-3 days before the onset of menses and gradually resolved 7-10 days later (Figure 1).

A giant solid cavernous hemangioma mimicking sphenoid wing meningioma in an adolescent: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(44):e13098

Department of Neurosurgery, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan PR China.

Rationale: Central nervous system (CNS) solid cavernous hemangiomas are rare extra-axial anomalies that may sometimes resemble meningiomas. Due to their complex vascular nature, accurate preoperative diagnosis is important to avoid disastrous hemorrhage during operation. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case in an adolescent since all middle cranial fossa hemangioma cases reported in literature are adults in their 40s or 50s and all the pediatric cases are cystic.

Pediatric Bilateral Facial Paralysis: An Unusual Presentation of Lyme Disease.

Pediatr Emerg Care 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine, Section of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

Pediatric bilateral facial nerve paralysis (FNP) is a rare condition, representing less than 2% of all cases of FNP. The differential diagnosis of FNP is extensive (ranging from infectious, traumatic, neurologic, to idiopathic) and often can present as a diagnostic challenge. In contrast to unilateral presentation, bilateral FNP presents as a manifestation of serious systemic conditions, including meningitis (infectious and neoplastic), brain stem encephalitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, sarcoidosis, Lyme disease, human immunodeficiency virus infection, leukemia, and vasculitis.
