OBJECTIVES: To test for PTPN11 mutations in clinically diagnosed cases of Noonan syndrome. METHODS: Seventeen individuals with clinical diagnosis of Noonan syndrome were included in the study. Sanger sequencing of all the 15 exons of PTPN11 was done. A genotype-phenotype correlation was attempted. RESULTS: Mutation in PTPN11 was detected in 11 out of 17 (64.7 %) patients with Noonan syndrome; 72% had mutation in exon 3 and 27 % had mutation in exon 13...

According to RSOC (2013-2014) data, high prevalence of stunting (26.7%) and wasting (13.0%) exists amongst under-five children belonging to highest wealth index communities. India possibly cannot achieve the 2025 Global nutrition targets for reducing the rate of stunting and wasting amongst Under-five children, unless efforts are not directed towards highest wealth index communities also.

JUSTIFICATION: No country-specific, evidence-based, consensus approach for the emergency department (ED) evaluation and management of the febrile child exist in India. PROCESS: We held two consensus meetings, performed an exhaustive literature review, and held ongoing web-based based discussions to arrive at a formal consensus on the proposed evaluation and management algorithm. The first meeting was held in Delhi in October 2015, under the auspices of Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Section of Academic College of Emergency Experts in India (ACEE-INDIA); and the second meeting was conducted at Pune during Emergency Medical Pediatrics and Recent Trends (EMPART 2016) in March 2016...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the variability in macronutrient and energy content of breastmilk of Indian women delivering at ≤34 weeks of gestation. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, samples of breastmilk expressed manually for feeding of preterm neonates were collected from 106 mothers at 3±1 (n=26), 7±2 (n=34), 14±2 (n=24), 21±3 (n=12) and 28±3 (n=10) days after birth.

JUSTIFICATION: Hearing impairment is one of the most critical sensory impairments with significant social and psychological consequences. Reported incidence of congenital hearing loss is 30 per 10,000 children. Evidence-based, standardized national guidelines are needed for professionals to screen for hearing impairment during the neonatal period. PROCESS: The meeting on formulation of national consensus guidelines on developmental disorders was organized by Indian Academy of Pediatrics in Mumbai, on 18th and 19th December, 2015...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the physical growth outcomes, morbidity profile and mortality at an age of 12 months among late preterm (34 0/7to 36 6/7) neonates to term (37 0/7to 41 6/7) neonates. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective cohort study. SETTING: A tertiary care center of Northern India during 2014-2015. PARTICIPANTS: 200 apparently healthy late preterms and term infants, followed up to 12 months of age. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Physical growth parameters, morbidity profile and mortality...

JUSTIFICATION: Learning Disability (LD) in children is a well-recognized developmental disorder, which has profound academic and psychosocial consequences. Due to the complex nature of LD and multiple disadvantages posed to the child due to LD, a multidisciplinary approach towards intervention is warranted. Given the paucity of evidence-based standardized treatment approaches, consensus guidelines for management of LD are needed. PROCESS: The meeting on formulation of national consensus guidelines on neurodevelopmental disorders was organized by Indian Academy of Pediatrics in Mumbai, on 18th and 19th December, 2015...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze growth-failureand improvement, if any, following splenectomy in children with hereditary spherocytosis. METHODS: Data collection from case-records (n=82) over 27-years(1985-2011). RESULTS: Prevalence of stunting was 26%; 32% were underweight. Stunted children were older in age (P=0.006) and presented late (P=0.003). Splenectomy (n=26) improved anemia (P<0.001). However, height-for-age did not improve at 1-year, or 4...
