Point-of-Care Ultrasound in Pediatric Diagnostic Dilemmas: Two Atypical Presentations of Intussusception.

Pediatr Emerg Care 2019 Jan;35(1):72-74

Department of Radiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto.

Diagnostic dilemmas are ubiquitous in pediatric emergency medicine because of the varied and often insidious presentations of many pediatric conditions. Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) in emergency departments is being used for some of these diagnostic challenges and can often provide rapid and valuable information to supplement a physician's clinical assessment. Intussusception is a pediatric condition that may be challenging to recognize because of its subtle and varied presenting symptoms. Read More

Preparing for safety monitoring after rotavirus vaccine introduction - Assessment of baseline epidemiology of intussusception among children <2 years of age in four Asian countries.

Vaccine 2018 Nov 7;36(50):7593-7598. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, USA.

Intussusception is the invagination of one segment of the bowel into a distal segment, characterized by symptoms of bloody stool, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Previous studies have found regional differences in incidence but the etiology of most intussusception cases is unknown. Rotavirus vaccines were associated with a slightly of increased risk of intussusception in post-licensure evaluations in high- and middle-income countries, but not in low income African countries.

3Department of Pediatric Cardiology,Ankara Yuksek İhtisas Education and Research Hospital,Ankara,Turkey.

Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile multisystem vasculitis. The term Incomplete Kawasaki disease is used in the presence of a minimum of two diagnostic criteria of clinical Kawasaki syndrome accompanied by at least 5 days of fever, the absence of any other reasons characterising the disease, and the presence of severe systemic inflammation findings. Gastrointestinal symptoms, notably diarrhoea, abdominal pain, and vomiting, frequently occur, and elevated serum aminotransferases, gallbladder hydrops, and rarely other forms of gastrointestinal involvement such as ischaemic colitis, intussusception, hepatic necrosis, splenic infarct, intestinal pseudo-obstruction, colitis, and colon oedema are also reported.

Heterotopic pancreas without Meckel's diverticulum in children as unique cause of gastrointestinal bleeding: think about it!

Surg Radiol Anat 2018 Aug 21;40(8):963-965. Epub 2018 May 21.

Service de Chirurgie Infantile, Hôpital de la Timone, 13005, Marseille Cedex 20, France.

Ectopic pancreas also known as heterotopic pancreas (HP) is a rare congenital anomaly, mainly found as incidental finding during autopsy or abdominal exploration for an other condition. Incidence rate is probably underestimated as patients are mostly asymptomatic; otherwise, it is capable of producing symptoms depending on its location, size, often appearing in the 4th-to-6th decades. Complications such as inflammation, obstruction, bleeding, and malignancy degeneration must be considered. Read More

Department of Radiology, Otsu Red Cross Hospital, Otsu, Japan.

Gastrointestinal Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is a highly aggressive malignancy in childhood, and early treatment is critical for its favorable prognosis. Ultrasonography is a widely accepted initial imaging workup; therefore, recognition of the sonographic features of BL should contribute to its early diagnosis and initiation of treatment. We present a 4-year-old boy with primary jejunal BL with intussusception mimicking presentation, in which initial abdominal US allowed sustainable detection and characterization of the intestinal lesion.

Epidemiological Correlation between Fecal Adenovirus Subgroups and Pediatric Intussusception in Korea.

J Korean Med Sci 2017 Oct;32(10):1647-1656

Department of Pediatrics, Gangneung Asan Hospital, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Gangneung, Korea.

We investigated the adenoviral etiology and seasonal epidemic trends in intussusception and each adenoviral subgroup. Also we confirmed whether we can use the adenovirus data of Acute Infectious Agents Laboratory Surveillance Report (AIALSR) as an epidemic predictor of intussusception. Patients with intussusception (n = 126), < 5 years old, were enrolled and matched by age and sex with controls suffering acute gastroenteritis without intussusception (n = 106), all recruited at 8 centers.

Pertussis and Rotavirus Vaccines - Controversies and Solutions.

Indian J Pediatr 2018 Jan 16;85(1):53-59. Epub 2017 Jun 16.

Department of Pediatrics, Advanced Pediatric Centre (APC), Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, 160012, India.

Pertussis and rotavirus vaccines have been the subject of several controversies over the years. In this paper the authors discuss facts and myths behind these controversies and also suggest solutions to overcome some limitations of these vaccines. The whole-cell pertussis vaccine (wPV) came into disrepute due to the associated adverse reactions, resulting in its replacement by acellular pertussis vaccine (aPV) in industrialized nations in 1990s.

ROTAVAC does not interfere with the immune response to childhood vaccines in Indian infants: A randomized placebo controlled trial.

Heliyon 2017 May 16;3(5):e00302. Epub 2017 May 16.

Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi, India.

A phase III randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial was conducted in the urban neighborhoods of Delhi to assess whether Oral Rotavirus Vaccine ROTAVAC interferes with the immune response to childhood vaccines when coadministered. Infants aged 6 weeks were randomized to receive three doses of either ROTAVAC or placebo along with childhood vaccines: Oral Polio Vaccine and vaccines against Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, Hepatitis B and type b given as Pentavalent at 6, 10, 14 weeks of age. Blood specimens were collected from all infants at baseline and 4 weeks post dose 3 to assess the immune response to antigens in Oral Polio Vaccine, Pentavalent and ROTAVAC vaccines. Read More

Risk of Intussusception After Rotavirus Vaccination.

Dtsch Arztebl Int 2017 Apr;114(15):255-262

Immunization Unit, Robert Koch Institute Berlin, Robert Koch Institute Berlin; Institute of Social Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.

Background: In 2013, the German Standing Committee on Vaccination (Ständige Impfkommission, STIKO) recommended rotavirus (RV) vaccination for all infants while stating that this mildly increased the risk of intussusception, a potentially life-threatening event. Since this recommendation was issued, multiple observational studies on this topic designed as self-controlled case series (SCCS) have been published. The SCCS design is particularly suitable for the study of rare adverse effects of medications. Read More
