Late presentation of congenital diaphragmatic hernia is 5-30% of all congenital diaphragma hernia cases. It can present as Morgagni, Bochdalek and paraesophageal hernia. Misdiagnosis can result in significant morbiditiy. A 17-month-old girl presented with vomiting and abdominal pain. On physical examination, circulatory disturbance, cyanosis, abdominal distantion were present. Her O2 saturation was 60% and she was tachycardic (180 bpm) and tachypneic (58 bpm) with hypotension (60/35 mmhg). Patient's heart and mediastinum were shifted into the right hemithorax on the chest X-ray...

Pigmentary mosaicism is a term used to encompass all of these different types of pigmentary patterns. Among these mosaic patterns, there have been only a few reports of the phylloid presentation in the literature. On the other hand, autoimmune disorders can be associated with neurocutaneous markers and syndromes. A fifteen-year-old girl was presented for chronic diarrhea and abdominal pain. Her physical examination had determined multiple hypopigmented patches. Finally, she was diagnosed phylloid hypomelanosis together with partial trisomy 13 accompanying celiac disease and autoimmune thyroiditis...

Unilateral nevoid telangiectasia (UNT) is characterized by the dermatomal distribution of telangiectasia, which are distributed unilaterally and frequently found in C3-C4 or the trigeminal dermatomal areas. It may be congenital or acquired and has a 2:1 female: male ratio. Several theories where developed in order to explain its etiopathogenesis. The most widely accepted is the one which establishes its probable association with an increase in estrogen levels. Its incidence is unknown, although it's probably subdiagnosed and more frequent than previously recognized...

Childhood malignant testicle tumors are very rare. In the literature to date, it has been reported that there are only 24 cavernous hemangioma cases existing in English literature. In this study, we discuss a testicular mass case which was diagnosed as cavernous hemangioma. The patient, who followed for left multicystic dysplastic kidney since his birth, was admitted to our clinic with complaints of left testicular mass and pain at 1-year of age. Histopathological investigation revealed cavernous hemagioma...

Epidermal cyst is a benign tumor that grows slowly and develops from entrapment of epidermis into the dermis. Inguinal canal is an extremely unusual location for an epidermal cyst in children. Here in, a 6-year-old girl presenting with inguinal mass which was diagnosed to be epidermal cyst in the patent processus vaginalis sac is reported. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first case of epidermal cyst in the patent processus vaginalis in a child.

Raoultella terrigena, formerly known as Klebsiella terrigena is Gram-negative, non-motile, facultative anaerobic, encapsulated bacilli and is a very rare cause of infections in humans. Until now, only two cases of actual clinical infection caused by R. terrigena were reported in adults. This report is the first case of neonatal infection with this microorganism, which was isolated from the urinary tract of a premature newborn followed in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Vitek 2® automated system had identified the bacteria as R...

Myiasis is a rare condition caused by the invasion of tissues by the larvae of flies. Many cases of myiasis involving various human organs have been reported. Tracheopulmonary or intratracheal myiasis is a very unusual and aberrant form of the disease in humans. We present a case of respiratory myiasis after aspiration of larvae by a healthy 8-month-old girl, which cannot be found in the English literature.

Sinus pericranii (SP) is an uncommon vascular pathology that is characterized by a nodular structure emerging from the scalp. It is generally asymptomatic. Typically, it is aclose to soft, compressive, fluctuant swelling, intracranial sinus. The swelling increases during the Valsalva maneuver, jugular vein compression, coughing, or crying attacks. The diagnosis was confirmed by CT, MRI, and MR angiography. Here, we conclude that SP is a rare cause of headache and that the asymptomatic lesion become symptomatic as a result of association with pseudotumor cerebri...

Staphylococcus aureus is a common cause of musculoskeletal infections. Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) is an exotoxin produced by S. aureus and is an important virulence factor. PVL-positive S. aureus infections have been associated with soft tissue infections and necrotizing pneumonia. In this case report, the clinical course of a 13-year-old boy who was admitted with right hip pain and fever, diagnosed with a gluteal abscess and incidentally discovered multiple cavitary pulmonary lesions, and had a methicillin susceptible and PVL-producing S...

Bee venom is a complex substance which acts in different ways; local or systemic anaphylaxis associated with IgE and direct toxic effects of the large volume of injected venom. We report a 10- year-old boy who was the vulnerable of 5989 honey bee attacks. To the best of our knowledge, this case had the ultimate number of honey bee stings in the literature, until now. He was admitted to pediatric intensive care unit after 3 hours of incident. Plasmapheresis was started to remove circulating venom that can cause many systemic side effects...

Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a simple and economical test that is easy to interpret and is routinely measured with automatic cell counters. It indicates platelet volume and platelet function and activation. Variations in platelet volume may occur more as a result of varying differentiation of megakaryocytes in association with production agents in bone marrow rather than of ageing of platelets in circulation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relation between mortality and changes in MPV values in patients hospitalized in the pediatric intensive care unit...

Celiac disease is an autoimmune, gastrointestinal disorder characterized by intolerance to the dietary grain protein gluten. An increased prevalence of celiac disease has been reported in Down syndrome and Turner syndrome, but there has been only few previous reports with respect to the association of celiac disease in Williams-Beuren syndrome. The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of celiac disease in our 24 Williams-Beuren syndrome patients. Gastrointestinal problems and celiac disease symptoms of patients were noted...

This study evaluates the clinical/immunological features and outcomes of 91 patients with the diagnosis of transient hypogammaglobulinemia of infancy(THI). Mean age at diagnosis was 8.4±5.2 months. IgG levels normalized at 30.6±11.88 months. Sixty three patients (69.3%) resolved in their first 3 years of life and 28 patients (30.7%) thereafter. In the univariate analysis, presence of atopy, occurrence of recurrent infections (>6/year) and hospitalization, initial low IgA and IgM levels were found to be associated with the late recovery...

Tacrolimus is a potent immunosuppressive agent widely used after organ transplantation. In this present study we present eight patients who complained of palpitation after kidney transplantation. Eight out of 31 patients who received tacrolimus after kidney transplantation suffered from tachycardia. Resting electrocardiography, 24 hours Holter monitorization, echocardiography were performed, and serum levels of cardiac troponin T, creatine kinase, CKMB, brain natriuretic peptide and tacrolimus were measured...

Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is defined as pneumonia occuring in any period of mechanical ventilation. There is no optimal diagnostic method in current use and in this study we aimed to compare two non-invasive diagnostic methods used in diagnosis of VAP in children. This prospective study was conducted in 8 bedded Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Ege University Children´s Hospital. Endotracheal aspiration (ETA) and non-bronchoscopic bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) were performed in case of developing VIP after 48 hours of ventilation...

The first aim of this study was to determine the intensity of physical activity (PA) by an objective measurement method - using an accelerometer in Turkish prepubertal boys. The second aim of this study was to correlate the intensity of PA with body mass index (BMI). For this aim 40 boys were participated in this study. PA levels were measured by using GT3X-bt accelerometer for 5 consecutive school days. Mean BMI was found 17.56 ± 2.39. 101.20 ± 17.82 minutes was found as moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) per school day...
