Novel PHOX2B mutations in congenital central hypoventilation syndrome.

Pediatr Int 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Pediatrics, Yamagata University School of Medicine, Yamagata, Japan.

Background: Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) is caused by the mutation of PHOX2B. Approximately 90% of cases were found to carry polyalanine repeat expansion mutation (PARM), and the remaining 10% had non-PARM (NPARM). In PARMs, the length of the polyalanine expansion correlates with clinical disease severity. Read More

Validity of a disposable catheter to drain urine overnight in neurogenic bladder.

Pediatr Int 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Pediatrics, Iwate Medical University, School of Medicine, 19-1 Uchimaru, Morioka, 020-8505, Japan.

Background: Overnight catheter drainage (OCD) is introduced to avoid overdistension of the bladder nighttime when clean intermittent catheterization proves ineffective for daytime management of neurogenic bladder. We adopted OCD using disposable silicone no-balloon (DSnB) catheters, with the distal end outside the body opening into diapers. However, the OCD using DSnB catheter had risks of retrograde bacterial contamination. Read More

Laser Ablation of Embryonic Veins in Children.

Pediatr Int 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, St. Petersburg, Florida.

Introduction: Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) and related overgrowth syndromes are rare conditions that often present to academic pediatric units and multidisciplinary vascular anomaly clinics. These conditions are commonly associated with abnormalities of the superficial and deep venous structures and carry an increased risk of venous thromboembolism.

Methods: A retrospective chart review was completed of all patients treated at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital with endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) for management of dilated embryonic veins in the setting of limb overgrowth. Read More

Growth among children infected with HIV receiving Antiretroviral Therapy in Vietnam.

Pediatr Int 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Hanoi Medical University, Hanoi, Vietnam.

Background: There are currently two markers used to monitor the treatment response to antiretroviral therapy (ART) in HIV infected children including CD4 T cell counts and HIV viral load; however, analyzing these could be challenging in resource-poor countries. Therefore, we would like to determine whether the changes of growth parameters including WAZ (weight-for-age Z scores), HAZ (height-for-age Z scores) and BMIZ (Body mass index-for-age Z scores) are associated with treatment response in HIV infected children.

Methods: The study was designed as nested case-control study, in which the data were collected at the enrolment and periodically every 6 month for total 36 month follow-up for 107 HIV infected children enrolled and treated at National Hospital of Pediatrics, Vietnam. Read More

Immunogenicity and side-effects of the inactivated hepatitis A vaccine in periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and adenitis patients.

Pediatr Int 2019 Jan;61(1):104-106

Second Department of Paediatrics, "P. & A. Kyriakou" Children's Hospital, University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

The aim of this study was to compare the immunogenicity and side-effects of hepatitis A virus (HAV) vaccination between periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and adenitis (PFAPA) patients and healthy controls who have not been previously exposed to HAV. A prospective observational study was carried out of 28 PFAPA patients and 76 controls who received two doses of the vaccine. Immunogenicity was expressed as seroconversion and seroprotection rates; mean HAV-immunoglobulin G concentration was measured at 0, 1, 7 and 18 months. Read More

Pediatr Int 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Division of Pediatric Critical Care, Department of Pediatrics, College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Background: Delivery of noninvasive ventilation commonly occurs in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).

Background: In this study, we aimed to identify the cut-off values of postnatal anteroposterior renal pelvic diameter (APRPD) and we present our data based on the Urinary Tract Dilation (UTD) classification system to identify the predictors for final diagnosis of urinary tract dilation and the need for surgery.

Methods: A total of 260 infants (336 renal units) with prenatally detected urinary tract dilation were prospectively evaluated with serial ultrasonography by the same radiologist. Additional radiological assessments with voiding cystourethrography and scintigraphy were done according to our clinical algorithm. Read More

Evaluation of aprepitant and fosaprepitant in pediatric patients.

Pediatr Int 2019 Jan 7. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Pharmacy, National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: Single-dose intravenous administration of fosaprepitant has been approved as an alternative to 3-day oral aprepitant, a neurokinin-1 receptor antagonist, and improves prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). Because fosaprepitant showed efficacy comparable to that of aprepitant in adult patients only, this study compared the efficacy and safety of aprepitant and fosaprepitant in pediatric patients.

Methods: Children younger than 18 years who received aprepitant or fosaprepitant to manage CINV between January 2015 and March 2018 at the National Cancer Center Hospital (Tokyo) were recruited to this study. Read More

Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, 270 Rama VI Road, Ratchathewi District, Bangkok, 10400, Thailand.

Introduction: Reticulocyte hemoglobin equivalent (Ret-He), a direct measure of the hemoglobin in the young RBC, has been reported to be useful in the diagnosis of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) but may have some limitations in thalassemia trait. This study aims to evaluate the differences of Ret-He levels in a population of school-aged children and to assess the diagnostic value of Ret-He in identifying IDA in a thalassemia-prevalent area.

Methods: Blood samples from subjects were tested for CBC including Ret-He, ferritin, serum iron and total iron binding capacity. Read More

Department of Hematology and Oncology, Shizuoka Children's Hospital, 860 Urushiyama, Shizuoka, 420-8660, JAPAN.

Neonates with Down syndrome (DS) have a propensity to develop the unique myeloproliferative disorder, transient abnormal myelopoiesis (TAM). TAM usually resolves spontaneously within 3 months; however, approximately 10% of patients with TAM die from hepatic or multiorgan failure. After remission, 20% of patients with TAM develop acute myeloid leukemia associated with Down syndrome (ML-DS). Read More
