Chest Tuberculosis in Children.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

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

Chest is the commonest site of involvement by tuberculosis (TB) in children; lungs being the most frequently affected region, followed by nodes, pleura and chest wall. It is difficult to diagnose TB in children due to lack of overt symptoms and difficulty in obtaining samples for microbiological confirmation. Hence various imaging modalities play an important role in diagnostic algorithm as well as in follow-up after treatment. Read More

Intestinal Failure-Associated Liver Disease and Eicosapentaenoic Acid/Arachidonic Acid Ratio.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, Nihon University School of Medicine, 30-1 Oyaguchi, Kami-Cho, Itabashi-ku, Tokyo, 173-8610, Japan.

Intestinal failure-associated liver disease (IFALD) is a fatal complication of short bowel syndrome managed with parenteral nutrition. A clinical cohort study reported the usefulness of parenteral administration of fish-derived omega-3 fatty acids in improving IFALD; however, no biomarker has been developed as yet. The authors report the case of a preterm infant with IFALD complicated by extensive short bowel syndrome. Read More

Clinical Features and Indications Associated with Mortality in Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy for Pediatric Patients.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Acıbadem Mehmet Ali Aydınlar University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Methods: A total of 63 patients admitted between 2011 and 2014 were included in the study. The demographic information, pediatric risk of mortality (PRISM) scores, vasoactive-inotropic score, indication for CRRT, time of starting CRRT, presence of fluid overload, durations of CRRT, and pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) stay were compared between survivors and non-survivors.

Management of Latent Tuberculosis Infection in Children from Developing Countries.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Pediatrics, AIIMS, New Delhi, 110029, India.

Tuberculosis (TB), once widely prevalent throughout the world, experienced falling incidence rates in early twentieth century in developed nations, even before the introduction of anti-TB drugs, attributed to improved hygiene and living conditions. Active TB may develop following fresh infection or activation of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). LTBI is a state of persistent bacterial viability, however, the host stays asymptomatic and there is no evidence of clinically active tuberculosis. Read More

National Program for RMNCH + A: Newer Strategies for Improving the Newborn Health in India.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of Neonatology, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, 110002, India.

RMNCH+A is a platform for delivering adolescent, maternal, newborn and child health in an integrated manner using a life cycle approach. The new initiatives under this strategy that would impact newborn health include antenatal corticosteroids in preterm labor, delayed clamping of cord at birth, skin-to-skin contact at birth and Kangaroo mother care, Family participatory care, Lactation management centers and care beyond newborn survival under the Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram. Even though the coverage of many of the existing initiatives has been moderately high, there are concerns about the quality of delivery of these interventions and slow progress in the roll out of the newer interventions.

Pediatric Chest MRI: A Review.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

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

Chest radiographs and CT scans have been the cornerstone of pulmonary imaging given their advantages of being rapid and easily available techniques. However, a significant concern with their use in the pediatric population is the associated ionisation radiation. The use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in pulmonary imaging has lagged behind its adoption in other organ systems. Read More

Newer Drugs for Tuberculosis Prevention and Treatment in Children.

Authors:
Ben J Marais

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

The Children's Hospital at Westmead and the Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity (MBI), University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia.

Children suffer a huge and often an unrecognized burden of tuberculosis (TB) in endemic countries like India. Better data have improved the visibility of childhood TB, but the establishment of functional TB prevention and treatment programs for children remains challenging. Barriers to TB prevention include: 1) non-implementation of existing guidelines, 2) perceived inability to rule out active TB with fear of creating drug resistance and 3) limited local guidance on the use of preventive therapy after close contact with drug resistant TB.

Diagnosis and Management of Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis in Children: A Practical Approach.

Authors:
H Simon Schaaf

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University, PO Box 241, Cape Town, 8000, South Africa.

Approximately 25,000 children develop multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) each year, but few of them are diagnosed and appropriately treated for MDR-TB. New diagnostic tools have improved our ability to diagnose children with bacteriologically confirmed TB earlier. However, the majority of childhood TB cases are not bacteriologically confirmed; therefore a high index of suspicion is needed, and taking a detailed history of contact with drug-resistant source cases and previous TB treatment is important to identify presumed MDR-TB cases.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Jan 16. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Department of Pediatrics, Maulana Azad Medical College and Associated Lok Nayak Hospitals, New Delhi, India.

Vitamin D deficiency (VDD) remains a significant health challenge globally with its overwhelming effects on skeletal growth and varied associations with extra-skeletal diseases. The last decade has reported a high prevalence of VDD in all age-groups across all zones of India. Children and adolescents are most vulnerable to ill-effects of VDD as peak linear growth and bone mass accrual occurs during these years. Read More

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Pediatrics and Clinical Epidemiology, Sitaram Bhartia Institute of Science and Research, Qutab Institutional Area, New Delhi, India.

High dose vitamin A (HDVA) concentrate began to be distributed in India in 1970 as a short-term, stop-gap approach to reduce clinical signs of vitamin A deficiency. As this problem declined globally, the purpose of distributing them changed to the reduction of young child mortality. However, their impact on this has also declined, if not disappeared, as suggested in India by the enormous DEVTA study. Read More

The Role of Maternal Citizenship on Pediatric Avoidable Hospitalization: A Birth Cohort Study in North-East Italy.

Indian J Pediatr 2019 Jan 12;86(Suppl 1):3-9. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

Unit of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Public Health, Department of Cardiac, Thoracic, Vascular Sciences and Public Health, University of Padua, Padua, Italy.

Objective: Avoidable hospitalization (AH) has been widely studied as a possible measure of primary health care performance. Since studies evaluating AH in migrant children, particularly in Europe, are lacking, the aim of this study was to investigate the role of maternal citizenship on the risk of AH in children.

Methods: The cohort study included all live newborns recorded in the Medical Birth Register (MBR) of Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region (Italy) in the years 1989-2012, followed from 30 d after their birth up to the 14th year of life. Read More
