A 6-year-old girl presented to hospital with a 4 day history of increasing neck pain. White blood cell count was normal with slightly raised C-reactive protein. The patient had a limited range of neck movement, and experienced enhanced pain with neck extension. X-ray and cervical computed tomography (CT) confirmed the diagnosis of cervical intervertebral disc calcification (IDC) and IDC with ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL), respectively. The symptoms improved after approximately 1 week following rest and oral acetaminophen...

BACKGROUND: In 2014, we created the training program for personnel in medical institutions in Japan to combat child maltreatment. Our objective was to document the effectiveness of the program for professionals from multiple disciplines working in medical institutions. METHODS: The questionnaire designed for the training program included demographic questions such years of practice and area of specialty, i.e. physician, nurse, social worker, public health nurse, technician, and others, as well as experience with suspected child maltreatment cases and training in dealing with such cases...

REVIEW

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs) are responsible for around 5% of all cases of cardiomyopathy (CM) and 15% of non-idiopathic cases. Storage disorders such as Pompe disease (glycogen storage disease type II) typically cause hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, whereas the accumulation of toxic metabolites, as seen in the organic acidurias, is associated with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Mixed pathology is also possible, particularly in late presentations. IEMs such as Barth syndrome, a disorder of cardiolipin stability usually associated with DCM, have been associated with rarer types of CM such as endocardial fibroelastosis (EFE) and left ventricular non-compaction...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms have been studied in immune-mediated disorders, but not yet in immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). We investigated whether VDR variants were associated with ITP in children. METHODS: The study included 44 children with a diagnosis of ITP and 100 healthy controls. Five VDR polymorphisms (Cdx-2, FokI, BsmI, ApaI and TaqI) were genotyped and used to evaluate the association of VDR variants with ITP. RESULTS: The distribution of the three Cdx-2 genotyping groups (GG, GA, and AA) was significantly different between ITP patients and controls (p=0...

BACKGROUD: Benign rolandic epilepsy is one of the most common focal epilepsy in childhood. However more and more data demonstrated that less typical clinical presentations may lead to misdiagnosis and mistreatment. The focus of this study was to retrospectively investigate the less typical features of benign rolandic epilepsy in Chinese children. METHODS: Data of 316 Chinese children with BRE were collected and analyzed. RESULTS: Of all children, 7...

BACKGROUND: Although the evidence-based treatment for the nocturnal enuresis has established, nearly one-third of the patients are still enuretic with desmopressin, anti-cholinergic treatment and alarm. The fourth option, imipramine, could be applied for them, however, its use has been limited because of the risk of cardiotoxicity when overdosed. Clonidine, an alpha2 -adrenoceptor agonist, also having noradrenergic effects like imipramine was chosen for the new option for refractory enuresis therapy...

BACKGROUND: Maintaining well control of asthma symptoms can help preventing exacerbations and its associated complications. The Asthma Control Test (ACT) can rapidly assess the effectiveness of asthma management plan and therapy. OBJECTIVE: To identify risk factors associated with uncontrolled asthma symptoms in young Saudi asthmatics (3-17 years-old). METHODS: In this cross-sectional hospital-based survey, the ACT was administered to 297 asthmatic children/adolescents, recruited at the emergency department (ED) of two major hospitals...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to compare perceptions between physical therapists and parents about family-centered care for preterm infants. METHODS: A translated version of The Measure of Processes of Care 20 (MPOC-20) and a Measures of Processes of Care for Service Providers (MPOC-SP) were used to evaluate the family-centered care for preterm infants. RESULTS: A total of 42 parents of 44 preterm infants and 9 physical therapists completed questionnaires...

BACKGROUND: Periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis and cervical adenitis (PFAPA) syndrome is the most frequent repetitive fever syndrome in childhood. It is characterized with fever episodes lasting for about three to six days, once every three to eight weeks. METHODS: Clinical and laboratory data of patients with PFAPA syndrome between January 2010 and December 2014 followed up at a tertiary pediatric care hospital were reviewed. RESULTS: Four-hundred children (256 male, 144 female), the mean age at diagnosis was 4...

OBJECTIVES: Preterm neonates are born while nephrogenesis is ongoing and are commonly exposed to factors in a hyperoxic environment that can impair renal development. Oxidative stress has also been implicated in the development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). The rat model of oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR) is the most clinically relevant model of ROP because its biologic features closely resemble those of ROP in preterm infants. We investigated impaired renal development in a rat model of OIR...

BACKGROUND: As treatment outcomes for congenital heart disease have improved, the social independence of adult congenital heart disease patients has become a key goal. We aimed to (1) determine the relationship between social independence and psychological profiles in these patients, and (2) identify patient anxieties, difficulties, and demands related to life in society. METHODS: A total of 143 patients aged ≥15 years who had physical disability certificates were selected using a questionnaire distributed by a patients association...

BACKGROUND: Although dosing and sizing of resuscitation drugs and equipment are mostly weight based, time is usually insufficient to weigh critically ill children. Many age-based weight estimation formulae for emergency use have been developed worldwide; however, there is no specific formula for Japanese children. This study aimed to develop and validate age-based formulae for estimating body weight of children living in Japan. METHODS: We obtained 370,980 measurements of body weight from 39,547 participants aged 12-155 months...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to explore the effect of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) on the early intellectual development of preterm infants. METHODS: From 2011 to 2015, 83 preterm infants diagnosed with BPD were recruited to the BPD group, and 89 preterm infants without BPD and 98 healthy term infants were randomly recruited to the non-BPD and term group, respectively. Neural and intellectual development according to the Gesell Development Scale were evaluated and compared between groups at 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, and 9-12 months of adjusted age for preterm infants and real age for term infants...

BACKGROUND: This study aims to evaluate changes in the use of contraindicated drugs with automated alerts through the nationwide drug utilization review in the pediatric population. METHODS: We conducted an interrupted time series analysis using the nationwide health insurance database. Study drugs were a total of 72 drugs in 22 classes that were designated as age-contraindicated between January 2007 and December 2011. Study subjects consisted of the patients in Korea who had been prescribed with any of the study drugs at least once...
