Iron studies are frequently requested in paediatric practice. They are useful both as a diagnostic tool and as a way of monitoring certain conditions, particularly those causing iron overload. This article outlines the physiology of iron metabolism and discusses laboratory aspects of performing iron studies, including factors influencing interpretation. Clinical scenarios are used to highlight how the tests can be used in different clinical situations.

A previously well 15-year-old boy presented to the emergency department with sudden-onset severe back pain and inability to weight bear. Preceding this event, he stretched out in bed and felt a click in his back.On examination, he was alert and interactive with normal vital signs. Neurological examination of the lower limbs demonstrated bilateral hypotonia and reduced power to 2/5 proximally and distally, absent reflexes, sensory level at L2 with paraesthesia (pins and needles) and dysaesthesia bilaterally...

A 2-year-old boy, who was previously well, was admitted for limping associated with left knee pain of 1 month duration. There was no history of witnessed trauma or significant infective symptoms. Systemic review was otherwise unremarkable. Prior to his onset of signs, he was able to cruise with support, and had some mild isolated speech delay. There was no significant family history of medical conditions. His main caregivers on weekdays were two sets of grandparents when his parents were working, while his parents took over his care on weekends...

Drug-resistant epilepsy (DRE) occurs in 20%-30% of children with epilepsy with significant impact on their quality of life. Management of this group of children has greatly improved in the recent years with streamlining of epilepsy surgery services and associated quaternary multimodal evaluation. This article provides a review of DRE in children and management based on recent evidence and published opinion. We have also presented an algorithmic approach to the child with possible DRE.

The use of interpreters is essential in our multicultural society. The families and patients we treat come from differing backgrounds, cultures and spoken language. Many are not proficient in, or may even entirely lack, the ability to communicate effectively in English. As health professionals, we must meet their needs and manage the risks to provision of good quality care that language barriers may introduce. Use of an interpreter or interpreting service is an important skill, which is rarely formally taught in undergraduate or postgraduate curricula...

Differentiated thyroid cancer is a rare disease in children and adolescents and manifests exclusively in the form of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). We present a rare case of PTC who presented initially with lung symptoms and miliary nodules on chest X-ray. This case emphasises the important differential of miliary mottling of the lungs.A 7-year-old girl presented with history of neck swelling and change in voice for the past 9 months and progressively worsening dyspnoea for 5 months. She was assessed elsewhere and treated with multiple courses of antibiotics without relief, as well as levothyroxine 50 µg daily for new hypothyroidism...

Children and young people who require rehabilitation following sustaining an acquired brain injury often experience long lengths of stay (LOS) and potentially poorer recovery outcomes due to limited access to therapy and little proactive discharge planning. After stakeholder enquiry we launched a new team and pathway with a primary aim to reduce LOS. The secondary aims were to pilot an outreach model, reduce cost and improve patient and family satisfaction. We achieved a significantly improved change in quality care with a financial gain and increased patient and family satisfaction...

Disorders of reproductive and sexual health are commonly encountered in paediatric clinics and can present many challenges to the general paediatrician. In this article we aim to discuss general consultation skills relevant to adolescents, appropriate screening questions for reproductive health concerns and the comprehensive assessment of any gynaecological symptoms identified. Crucially a vast array of conditions can be diagnosed with history and examination alone, sometimes with the addition of simple and readily available investigations, without the need for specialist gynaecology referral...

In paediatric practice feeding, eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties are present in up to 1% of children. Dysphagia is any disruption to the swallow sequence that results in compromise to the safety, efficiency or adequacy of nutritional intake. Swallowing difficulties may lead to pharyngeal aspiration, respiratory compromise or poor nutritional intake. It causes sensory and motor dysfunction impacting on a child's ability to experience normal feeding. Incoordination can result in oral pharyngeal aspiration where fluid or food is misdirected and enters the airway, or choking where food physically blocks the airway The incidence is much higher in some clinical populations, including children with neuromuscular disease, traumatic brain injury and airway malformations...

In a society of diverse views, faiths and beliefs, what can paediatric palliative care contribute to our understanding of children's spirituality? By failing to recognise and respond to their spirituality in this work, we risk missing something of profound importance to children and their families. We overlook their search for wholeness in the absence of cure and fall short of offering truly holistic care. This paper explores how developments in advance care planning and related documentation are addressing these issues...

Paediatricians are often faced with managing the child who is unwell, and parents, who may present in ways that are difficult to manage. Difficult behaviours can range from those who disregard their child's needs, to those who overstate their child's minor symptoms, to those who ask for help but then refuse to accept it. This paper gives a framework using attachment theory to help paediatricians recognise, understand and deal with difficult doctor-parent interactions in a way that is appropriate and sensitive...

Low or absent immunoglobulin A (IgA) levels are frequently found in children in whom immunodeficiency is not suspected. IgA deficiency is the most common primary immunodeficiency disorder in the UK affecting approximately 1 in 600 people. Isolated IgA deficiency is often identified coincidentally when investigating a child for conditions such as coeliac disease. The aim of this article is to provide a structured approach to the history, investigation and management of an isolated IgA deficiency.

: A 12-year-old boy, with intermittent abdominal pain from 3 years of age, presented with increased frequency of right lower quadrant pain (at least three episodes per week over the past six months) and pain during micturition affecting school attendance. His family history included referred urolithiasis. An abdominal ultrasound performed 1 year before our visit showed a small stone of 4 mm in the right renal pelvis for which he did not receive any therapy. The patient brought 25 hard stones with irregular outline, 2-8 mm in diameter, of deep brown/grey colour that he claimed to have found in his underwear (figure 1)...
