Association of Child Neurology-Indian Epilepsy Society Consensus Document on Social and Legal Aspects of Childhood Epilepsy (SOLACE).

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Pediatric Neurology, Madhukar Rainbow Children's Hospital, Malviya Nagar, Delhi, 110017, India.

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder which affects not only the health of the affected child, but also has an economic, psychological and emotional impact on the family as a whole. In the transition from Person with Disability (PWD) act (1995) to Rights of Persons with Disabilities act (RPWD act) (2016), which covers all aspects of life of a person with any disability, epilepsy has been excluded from the list of disorders, resulting in a loss of many of the benefits that were earlier available to persons with epilepsy, causing concern to all caregivers of persons with epilepsy. Additionally, physicians/ pediatricians/ neurologists are not really aware of the benefits that are available to persons with epilepsy, especially children. Read More

Pharmacokinetics of First-Line Anti-Tubercular Drugs.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Department of Pediatrics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, 110029, India.

Determining the optimal dosages of isoniazid, rifampicin, pyrazinamide and ethambutol in children is necessary to obtain therapeutic serum concentrations of these drugs. Revised dosages have improved the exposure of 1st line anti-tubercular drugs to some extent; there is still scope for modification of the dosages to achieve exposures which can lead to favourable outcome of the disease. High dose of rifampicin is being investigated in clinical trials in adults with some benefit; studies are required in children. Read More

Lymphopenia and Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID) - Think Before You Ink.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Mar 16. Epub 2019 Mar 16.

Department of Pediatric Immunology and Leukocyte Biology, National Institute of Immunohematology (ICMR), Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Objectives: Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) represents one of the most severe forms of Primary immunodeficiency (PID) disorders, characterized by T cell lymphopenia (TCL) and lack of cellular and humoral immune responses. However, not all patients with low T cell lymphocyte counts may have an abnormal T cell immunity and the observed TCL may be a temporary suppression resulting from transient lymphopenia secondary to severe infections. In such cases, it is necessary to estimate the severity of the observed TCL by assessing thymic capabilities. Read More

Validation of APLS, Argall and Luscombe Formulae for Estimating Weight among Indian Children.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Division of Community Studies, ICMR-National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad, India.

Weight estimation in pediatric emergencies is often required for calculation of drug dosages, fluid therapy and defibrillation. The 'gold standard' of actually weighing the patient is not practically possible in emergency conditions. The aim of this study is to validate common age-based formulae (APLS, Luscombe and Argall's) and their accuracy in estimating weight of under 5-y-old Indian children by secondary data analysis from a cross-sectional study conducted by the National Nutrition Monitoring Bureau (NNMB), National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad, in 10 states of India in 2011-12 among under five-year-old children.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Department of Community & Family Medicine, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Mangalagiri, Andhra Pradesh, 522503, India.

India is undergoing not only economic, demographic and nutritional transformational change but also indicators of health are improving remarkably.

For better governance in the delivery of the Scheme, convergence is one of the key features of the ICDS Scheme for providing all services under the Scheme. Read More

C-Terminal Fibroblast Growth Factor-23 Levels in Non-Nutritional Hypophosphatemic Rickets.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Pediatrics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Ansari Nagar, New Delhi, 110029, India.

Fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF23) is central to phosphate homeostasis. The author examined if blood levels of FGF23 allow discrimination of classic hypophosphatemic rickets from other causes of non-nutritional rickets with hypophosphatemia. Forty-two children (median age: 102 mo) with non-nutritional rickets and hypophosphatemia were clinically classified as having distal renal tubular acidosis (RTA, n = 12), Fanconi syndrome (n = 8), classic hypophosphatemic rickets (n = 11), vitamin D dependent rickets (n = 7) and Dent disease (n = 4).

Prognostic Significance of IL-6 in Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Mar 4. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Department of Medical Oncology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, 110029, India.

Elevated serum interleukin-6 (IL-6) in Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is reported to correlate with B symptoms, response rate and survival in adult patients. The authors studied prognostic significance of IL-6 expression by immunohistochemistry on Hodgkin-Reed Sternberg cells and background reactive cells in a retrospective cohort of pediatric HL patients treated with doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine (ABVD) from January 2009 through December 2013. Of 142 patients, tissue blocks were retrieved in 110 patients. Read More

Department of Neuroradiology, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS), Bangalore, Karnataka, India.

Mitochondrial membrane protein associated neurodegeneration (MPAN) belongs to the Neuronal brain iron accumulation (NBIA) spectrum disorder. It is caused by mutation in the C19orf12 gene. A 13-y-old previously healthy girl born to non-consanguineous marriage couple presented with regression of motor and cognitive milestones and decreased vision in both eyes, since 8 y of age.

Liquid Drug Dosage Measurement Errors with Different Dosing Devices.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Apr 28;86(4):382-385. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Pediatrics, TN Medical College and BYL Nair Charitable Hospital, Mumbai, India.

An observational study was carried out to determine the magnitude of dosing errors made by parents, the most-preferred drug delivery device and the association of age, gender, education of the caregiver and number of children with the proportion of accurate doses. After enrolment, parents of children aged 6-60 mo were instructed to measure 5 ml of syrup paracetamol using any of the devices (stainless steel spoon, disposable plastic syringe, dosing cup with etched markings) displayed. The quantum of measured dose was confirmed using a calibrated glass cylinder. Read More

Monitoring Treatment of Childhood Tuberculosis and the Role of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Feb 28. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, 1102 Bates Street, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Most children tolerate the first-line antibiotics used to treat Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) very well. The most common adverse effect is gastrointestinal distress unrelated to hepatotoxicity; the latter is seen in less than 1% of children. Despite the infrequency of hepatotoxicity, the potential long-term impact of hepatic insufficiency dictates that all children receiving antimycobacterial therapy should be evaluated periodically by symptom screening and physical examination.
