Yılmaz-Semerci S, Demirel G, Taştekin A. Wickerhamomyces anomalus blood stream infection in a term newborn with pneumonia. Turk J Pediatr 2017; 59: 349-351. The incidence of invasive candidiasis is high in neonates admitted to neonatal intensive care unit and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality rates. Candida albicans is the most common fungal agent pathogenic to neonates but invasive fungal infections caused by uncommon fungi have increased in recent years. Wickerhamomyces anomalus is a very rare pathogen causing blood stream infection in neonates, which has reportedly caused only few cases in the literature...

Paul SP, Hicks SS, Sanjeevaiah MK, Heaton PA. Where did the salt go? Turk J Pediatr 2017; 59: 345-348. Bronchiolitis is a self-limiting viral respiratory-tract-infection seen commonly in infants. Some infants require hospitalization for feeding or respiratory support. A wide range of extra-pulmonary complications such as arrhythmias, myocarditis, central apneas, seizures, and hyponatremia are uncommonly known to occur with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections. We present a 4-week-old-female infant admitted with RSV bronchiolitis for feeding support by nasogastric-tube...

Kocaoğlu C, Kocaoğlu Ç, Akkoyun İ, Karaniş İE. A case report with sacral appendage: Is it accessory penis or human tail? Turk J Pediatr 2017; 59: 335-337. Lumbo-sacro-coccygeal appendages are very rare congenital anomalies. It is difficult to say that they are a evolutionary inheritance (tail) from our ancestors or an anomaly (pseudotail) occuring during embrional development. If it is a true tail, this lesion contains adipose and connective tissue, striated muscle, blood vessel and nerves, and is covered by skin...

Hereditary spastic paraplegia type 35 (SPG35) is a rare disorder characterized by progressive spasticity. Mutations in the fatty acid 2-hydroxylase (FA2H) gene in different loci are responsible for phenotypic variability. We aimed to define the phenotype of SPG35 linked to a novel homozygous mutation c.160_169dup (p.Asp57Glyfs*48) in the FA2H gene, and compared with the clinical characteristics and neuroimaging findings of the patients with mutation in the FA2H gene...
