Congenital glucose-galactose malabsorption (CGGM) is a rare cause of intractable infantile diarrhea, with only a few hundred cases recognized worldwide. This life-threatening disorder must be considered in the differential diagnosis of an infant who presents with diarrhea and dehydration that fails to respond to standard therapy. The clinical and diagnostic course of an infant with recurrent episodes of watery diarrhea and hypernatremic dehydration found to be homozygous for a rare variant in the SLC5A1 gene, c...

INTRODUCTION: Prematurity affects a significant portion (10-12%) of children in the Unites States, with potential for physical, psychological, neurodevelopmental, and behavioral impairments continuing long past the neonatal period. The specific aim of this research was to evaluate pediatric primary and specialty care providers' knowledge and understanding of neurodevelopmental outcomes of children born prematurely. METHODS: Pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP) members of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners participated in an online survey using the 33-item Premature Birth Knowledge Scale (PB-KS) to assess their knowledge of current neurodevelopmental outcomes of children born prematurely...

Research on American parents' beliefs about the use of corporal punishment (CP) shows widespread approval of this child-rearing practice. This review integrated 25 research articles to gain a better understanding of what American parents believe about the use of CP as a method of child-rearing, where they get their information about CP, and if American parents' beliefs about CP translate to the actual use of CP. The results showed that the main factors that influence a parent's endorsement of CP is the belief that CP is normative and expected when raising a child; is a necessary part of parenting, even for infants; and that certain stressors involving interactions between the parent, child, and environment can elicit the use of CP...

The rate of sexually transmitted infections in the United States increased in 2015 for the second year in a row. Adolescents bear an undue portion of this burden because of increased physiologic susceptibility, higher rates of reinfection, and developmental age. Despite expedited partner therapy (EPT) being legalized in 39 states, health care providers still report infrequently providing EPT to their adolescent patients. Patients who benefit most from EPT include those with high-risk sexual behavior, a steady relationship status, higher education level, or an established relationship with the provider...

BACKGROUND: Minority racial/ethnic pediatric populations and those living in poverty are at greater risk of exposure to trauma, development of mental health disorders, and school failure yet are less likely to have access to mental health services (MHS). School-based health centers (SBHCs) staffed with mental health providers may be one strategy for decreasing health care disparities. METHODS: Secondary analysis of the cross-sectional School-Based Health Alliance Census School Year 2010-2011 Report was conducted...

INTRODUCTION: Neglect accounts for over 70% of child maltreatment and carries significant sequelae. Identification of psychosocial determinants of health may allow pediatric providers to ameliorate precursors of child neglect. METHODS: Data were collected 1 month before and after implementation of the Well-Child Care Visit, Evaluation, Community Resources, Advocacy, Referral, Education (i.e., WE-CARE) screen at all well-child visits. Social workers recorded number and types of referrals, and providers completed surveys...

INTRODUCTION: For those living with Kawasaki disease and coronary artery aneurysms, little is known about the psychosocial burden faced by parents and their children. METHODS: Exploratory, descriptive, mixed-methods design examining survey and interview data about health-related uncertainty, intrusiveness, and self-efficacy. RESULTS: Parents' uncertainty was associated with missed diagnosis, higher income, and maternal education. Higher uncertainty scores among children were associated with absence of chest pain and lower number of echocardiograms...

Sexual abuse is a problem of epidemic proportions in the United States. In their practice, pediatric nurse practitioners will likely encounter children who have experienced sexual abuse-both those who have and have not previously been identified as victims. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are rare in sexually abused children and adolescents. However, when present, they can be crucial to making the diagnosis of sexual abuse and protecting children. This continuing education article will assist the pediatric nurse practitioner in interpreting the relationship between STIs and sexual abuse, correctly testing for STIs, and treating STIs in children and adolescents...

Incidence rates of pertussis have been higher over the past 5 years than at any time since the first pertussis vaccine became widely available, with infants younger than 12 months old being particularly vulnerable. Once infected, infants may experience severe respiratory symptoms and incur high rates of hospitalization, and they account for the vast majority of pertussis-related deaths each year. With the diminished effectiveness of herd immunity, experts increasingly rely on cocooning to protect at-risk populations against infectious diseases such as pertussis...

For adolescents with diabetes, ineffective health care transition to adult health services may result in suboptimal adherence to medical supervision, leading to poor glycemic control, increased diabetes complications, and hospitalization. Despite national recommendations, few youth receive the needed preparation to transition to adult health services. A data transition registry was created at a large Midwest urban academic medical center to identify patients 14 years and older with Type 1 diabetes. Thirty-nine patients with Type 1 diabetes were identified, and 33 were eligible to begin transition planning...

INTRODUCTION: Medicaid agencies have been promoting the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model. Most caregivers choose physician practices for their children, and we hypothesized that those following healthier childrearing practices are more likely to seek care in a PCMH. METHOD: We selected children with public insurance plans (n = 20,801) from the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children's Health. We used generalized ordinal logistic regression with state fixed effects to assess the association between home environments and children's use of PCMHs...

Kawasaki disease is currently the leading cause of long-term cardiac damage in pediatric patients in the United States. Kawasaki disease is diagnosed based on symptomatology and by ruling out other etiology. There is a significant need for an improved, standardized treatment protocol for patients diagnosed with Kawasaki disease and a more rapid initiation of treatment for these patients. Decreasing the cardiac damage caused by Kawasaki disease with timely diagnosis and treatment needs be a principal goal.
