Kyubo Kim, Hong Je Cho, Jung Won Yoon, Sun Hee Choi, Youn Ho Sheen, ManYong Han, Heysung Baek
BACKGROUND: Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) is diagnosed via exercise challenge on a treadmill. However, such testing requires complex equipment and sufficient healthcare resources. The fraction of exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) test and mannitol bronchial provocation test (BPT) may serve as a surrogate of exercise testing. METHODS: We compared the diagnostic utilities of the FeNO test and mannitol BPT in predicting EIB in asthmatic children. We retrospectively analysed data from 60 asthmatic children aged 6-16 years...

BACKGROUND: Acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (APSGN) is the most common postinfectious glomerulonephritis in childhood. In this study, we aimed to determine the possible risk factor(s), responsible for decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in APSGN. METHODS: The data of patients followed up with the diagnosis of APSGN in the Pediatric Nephrology Clinic of Gaziantep University Hospital between October 2014 and October 2016 were retrospectively evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Anemia in infancy is still prevalent in developing countries. Commercial iron-fortified complementary foods or iron drops are not available in Japan and breastfed infants have a higher risk of anemia. We studied anemia screening in infants in 10-month old infants and evaluated whether breastfeeding is a risk factor for anemia. METHODS: Anemia screening was performed during a regular health check of 10-month children at four local pediatric clinics in Shimane prefecture, Japan...

Arthur Chang, Shamim Islam
The etiology and pathogenesis of Kawasaki Disease (KD) remain poorly understood. Amongst the diverse infectious and environmental factors examined to be triggers for, or be associated with KD, are immunizations. In this report, we first describe a Caucasian female who presented with classic KD shortly after receiving her routine 4 month vaccination series. Prior published case reports and large epidemiological studies, which explore potential associations between immunizations and KD and other vasculitides, are then comprehensively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Few researches have been reported hospital-based care utilization of children with medical complexity (CMC) in Japan. This study examined frequency and differences of hospital-based care utilization among moderate and severe CMC in Japan. METHODS: This study utilized medical records of three pediatric tertiary hospitals in one prefecture, 2014. We examined the numbers of outpatient visits and admissions to the hospital for CMC during 5 years after medical care at home was introduced...

BACKGROUND: Children born to HIV-infected mothers are at risk for neurodevelopmental delay. Little is known about neurodevelopmental outcomes of infants and toddlers who were born to HIV-positive mothers but were not themselves infected by HIV, especially in poor rural areas. This study was conducted to compare developmental outcomes between young children who were HIV-exposed but uninfected (HEU) and their HIV-unexposed and uninfected (HUU) peers in rural Yunnan, China. METHODS: A total of 250 HEU children aged 6-36 months and 250 HUU children matched on age, gender and residency were recruited from rural Yunnan, China...

BACKGROUND: Evidence of the effects of fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene variation and long-term effects of physical activity (PA) on adiposity in adolescents is largely scarce. This study aimed to investigate whether physical activity modulates the effects of the FTO gene on body mass index (BMI) changes in Japanese adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18 years. METHODS: Data of 343 subjects (156 boys; 187 girls) who were enrolled in 2006 and 2007 from schools on Shunan City, Japan, were collected...

OBJECTIVES: Admission to the NICU due to respiratory distress is determined by a clinician's objective judgement. We investigated prenatal factors that were predictive of NICU admission among neonates with respiratory distress. METHODS: This case-control study was conducted at Nara Prefecture General Medical Center, Nara, Japan, from February 2013 to April 2017 and included neonates who had a birth weight of 2,000 g or more, were 36 weeks or more of gestational age, and required oxygen treatment due to respiratory distress at birth...

BACKGROUND: Overactive bladder (OAB) is a symptomatic syndrome defined by urinary urgency, usually accompanied by increased urination frequency and nocturia, with or without urinary incontinence. The prevalence of pediatric OAB in 5-13 year olds is reported to be as high as 16.6%, but the pathophysiology and epidemiology have not been sufficiently elucidated. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records in 117 children with OAB aged between 5 and 15 years during the years 2012 to 2016...

BACKGROUND: To assess the diagnostic value of urinary fibrin/fibrinogen degradation products (uFDP) measured using an anti-fibrinogen antibody in patients with orthostatic proteinuria (OP), and their use in differentiating between OP and glomerulonephritis (GN). METHODS: uFDP levels were measured in the first morning (supine) and during a hospital visit (upright) and then normalized to urine creatinine levels (uFDP/Cr, ng/mgCr). We compared (i) OP patients (n=16); (ii) those in remission for nephrotic syndrome (NS group, n=14) and GN (IgA nephropathy: IgAN, n=14; Henoch-Schönlein purpura nephritis: HSPN, n=12); and (iii) those with active GN (IgAN, n=12; HSPN, n=19)...

BACKGROUND: Appropriate calcium and phosphate supplementation is essential for bone growth in preterm infants. Using Rehabix-K2™ (AY Pharmaceuticals Co., Ltd., Tokyo, Japan) and Pleamin-P Injection™ (FUSO Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd., Osaka, Japan) as the total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and amino acid solution, respectively, we investigated ways of maximizing calcium and phosphate in the TPN solution. METHODS: Rehabix-K2™ , Pleamin-P™ , calcium gluconate, sodium phosphate, 50% glucose, and water were mixed in varying proportions to create 16 formulations...

AIM: Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. Behavioral disinhibition, poor neurocognitive skills and immediate reward preference in childrenwith ADHD have been suggested as risk factors for internet addiction.

BACKGROUND: To study the prevalence of menstruation-related headache and the impact of associated factors in adolescents. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted in seven randomly selected high schools, and 3,886 girls attending those schools were invited. After the consent of the school principals, a final total of 2,485 girls (63.9%) were involved in the study. A specific questionnaire was distributed to adolescent girls (14-19 years old). The first part of the survey investigated the features of menstruation (age of first menstruation, duration of period, pad fully soaked per day)...
