Aparajita Mitra, Yogesh Kumar Sarin
Hypospadiology is a rapidly evolving field. Progress in the understanding of how hormonal therapy affects the growth of the phallus has allowed surgeons to optimize the tissues for surgery. But conflicting data from a number of studies and a lack of consensus on drugs, their dosing, mode of delivery and timing of use means that the creation of protocols is unlikely to happen in the near future. Nonetheless, there is a hope and the standardization of scientific reporting will make it easier to compare data at the global level...

REVIEW
Vikas Kumar, Shaam Bodeliwala, Daljit Singh
The best management of hydrocephalus is still controversial in the twenty-first century. Shunt treatment for hydrocephalus is the most common procedure performed in neurosurgical practice and is associated with the highest complications rate. But during the last 2 decades, the treatment of hydrocephalus has improved with better shunt devices available today, increased facilities for investigations and newer approaches like endoscopic third ventriculostomy. The recent advances in development of better endoscopes have provided the patient and treating doctor with an option for an alternative surgery for treatment of hydrocephalus...

OBJECTIVES: To define the recognition, age at admission, referral time and referral pattern of neonatal cholestasis in India. METHODS: This prospective, observational study was conducted from February 2015 through March 2016 in the Pediatric gastroenterology unit of JIPMER, Pondicherry in infants with cholestasis < 6 mo of age. RESULTS: Among 64 infants, median age of admission was 52 d (IQR 28-63 d). Fifty of sixty four infants (78.1%) came with parent-reported cholestasis-related symptoms of either jaundice alone (57...

OBJECTIVES: To measure the Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) of healthy school children and to find out the correlation between PEFR values and anthropometric parameters, to create a nomogram of PEFR for children and formulate a regression formula for PEFR. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted on healthy school children between the age group of 10 and 16 y, at three higher secondary schools selected in urban area of Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. After collecting baseline data, PEFR was measured using mini Wright peak flow meter...

OBJECTIVE: To quantitatively summarize the evidence from observational studies on the relation between pediatric asthma and food allergy. METHODS: A literature search was conducted in Medline and EMBASE (August 2016). Two independent reviewers appraised the studies and extracted the estimates of interest.

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a highly malignant tumor which is thought to originate from the pluripotent mesenchyme. It is the most common soft-tissue sarcoma of childhood. This review article summarizes the recent and older published literature and gives an overview of management of RMS in children. RMS can arise in a wide variety of primary sites, some of which are associated with specific patterns of local invasion, regional lymph nodal spread, therapeutic response and long term outcome, hence requiring physicians to be familiar with site-specific staging and treatment details...

Hitherto poor outcomes, paucity of data and heterogeneity in International approach to Pediatric NHL (Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma) prompted the need for guidelines for Indian population with vast variability in access, affordability and infrastructure across the country. These guidelines are based on consensus among the experts and best available evidence applicable to Indian setting. Evaluation of NHL should consist of easily doable and rapid tissue diagnosis (biopsy or flow cytometry of peripheral blood/malignant effusions), St Jude/IPNHLSS (International Pediatric Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Staging System) and risk grouping with CSF (Cerebro-spinal fluid), bone marrow, whole body imaging [CECT (Contrast enhanced computerized tomography) ± MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging)] and blood investigations for LDH (Lactate dehydrogenase), TLS (Tumor lysis syndrome) and organ functions...

Neuroblastoma (NBL) is the most common extra-cranial solid tumor in childhood. High-risk NBL is considered challenging and has one of the least favourable outcomes amongst pediatric cancers. Primary tumor can arise anywhere along the sympathetic chain. Advanced disease at presentation is common. Diagnosis is established by tumor biopsy and elevated urinary catecholamines. Staging is performed using bone marrow and mIBG scan (FDG-PET/bone scan if mIBG unavailable or non-avid). Age, stage, histopathological grading, MYCN amplification and 11q aberration are important prognostic factors utilized in risk stratification...

OBJECTIVE: To compare long-term neurodevelopmental and growth (NDG) outcomes at 3 y corrected gestational age (GA) in premature infants with grade ≥ III intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and post-hemorrhagic hydrocephalus who were treated with ventriculo-peritoneal shunt with those who were not treated with shunt. METHODS: In a retrospective cohort study, NDG outcomes were compared between preterm infants of <29 wk GA with IVH treated with shunt (IVHS) and IVH with no shunt (IVHNS)...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the association of ocular manifestations in beta-thalassemia with the patient's age, blood transfusion requirements, average serum ferritin and dose and duration of iron chelation therapy. METHODS: Sixty multi-transfused beta thalassemia patients of 12 to 18 y of age on chelation therapy were included in this cross-sectional analysis.

Wilms tumor (WT) is the most common renal tumor of childhood. Although multidisciplinary care including surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy have greatly improved the survival rates in WT, there is a scope for further improvement in India and other resource-poor settings. In resource-limited settings, the majority of patients present with large tumors, which may either be unresectable or risky to resect; making preoperative chemotherapy followed by delayed surgery the preferred approach. Histology and staging are used for risk stratification...

With the introduction of cisplatin, the outcome of children with malignant germ cell tumors (MGCT) has improved to nearly 90% 5 year survival. Over the years, through the results of various multinational co-operative trials, the chemotherapy and surgical guidelines for both the gonadal and extra-gonadal MGCTs have been refined to decrease the early and late morbidities and at the same time improve survival. Introduction of risk categorization has further added to this effort. There has been no recommendation on how the children with malignant germ cell tumors should be treated in India...

Pediatric Hodgkins lymphoma is a highly curable disease even in the developing world. Current treatment paradigms follow a risk and response based approach. The goal is to minimise treatment related short and long-term toxicity while maintaining excellent survival. A confirmed histopathological diagnosis and full staging work-up are essential prior to embarking on treatment and guidelines for these are provided in the text. All patients require combination chemotherapy while radiotherapy is usually reserved for a select subgroup depending on the protocol used...

Srikanta Basu, Puneet Kaur Sahi
India is endemic for malaria with unstable transmission inhibiting the development of immunity and predisposing all age groups to the disease. Children under five are the greatest sufferers with maximum mortality. P. falciparum and P. vivax cause majority of cases. Fever is the cardinal symptom, though no set of signs and symptoms reliably distinguishes malaria from other causes of fever. In all suspected cases parasitological diagnosis should be confirmed before starting the treatment. Microscopy of blood smears is the gold standard for diagnosis...

Dramatic advancement has been made in the management of children with hepatoblastoma (HB) over the past 3 decades owing to the improvement in diagnostic imaging, new chemotherapeutic agents, better surgical care and availability of liver transplantation. These advances are the end results of contributions from 4 major study groups across the globe including International Society of Pediatric Oncology - Liver Tumor Strategy Group (SIOPEL), Children's Oncology Group (COG), German Pediatric Hematology Oncology Group (GPOH) and Japanese Pediatric Liver Tumor Study Group (JPLT)...
