BACKGROUND: The study objective was to create asthma risk factors scale (ARFS) score that would be correlated with the increased risk of asthma in Lebanese children. This scale would eventually be used both to identify children at risk and assess early diagnosis of asthma. METHODS: A case-control study (study 1) of 1276 children (976 controls and 300 cases) and a cross-sectional study (study 2) of 1000 children were conducted using a parental questionnaire. Children aged between 3 and 16 years were screened for possible enrollment...

BACKGROUND: Despite the advance in the understanding of etiology, pathophysiology and diagnosis of atopic dermatitis (AD), its prevalence has increased annually in Taiwan. PURPOSES: The purpose of this study is to explore the prevalence, and personal and environmental risk factors of AD. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was conducted via health centers of elementary schools in Taipei city. We used the Chinese version of ISAAC questionnaire to examine possible personal and environmental risk factors of AD...

BACKGROUND: The neonatal changes of corpus callosum or cerebellar volume in preterm infants have been shown to link with abnormal mentality and motor disability in early childhood. This study aims to predict the long-term neurological outcomes by measuring these changes on neonatal brain ultrasound in preterm infants. METHODS: Our cohort consisted of infants aged below 32 weeks' gestation with very low birth body weights who completed neuro-assessments at 5 years of age...

You Yang, Manli Gu
BACKGROUND: To investigate the association between histamine skin reactivity and body mass index (BMI) and other clinical factors, 526 children (3-6 years old) who underwent a skin-prick test (SPT) to diagnose allergic rhinitis were enrolled. METHODS: The SPT was carried out using 43 common allergens (commercial kit). The wheal size was analyzed. The associations between histamine reactivity and age, gender, BMI, atopy, parental smoking history, and testing season were examined...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of neonatal sepsis still considered to be a challenge for both clinicians and the laboratory due to the non-specific clinical presentations. The present study aimed to compare and assess the diagnostic & prognostic values of C-reactive protein (CRP), high sensitivity CRP (hsCRP), presepsin, interleukin-6 (IL-6) and procalcitonin (PCT) in neonatal sepsis separately and in combination. METHODS: This hospital-based cross-sectional study has been conducted on 168 neonates recruited from the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of Qena University Hospitals, Upper Egypt...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: To describe the epidemiologic, clinical, microbiological, therapeutic and outcome characteristics of a HUS outbreak occurring in southern Romania from 2015 to 2016. METHODS: We retrospectively collected data from the medical records of all HUS cases hospitalized at the pediatric nephrology department of Marie Curie Children's Hospital of Bucharest, Romania. RESULTS: There were 32 HUS cases (19 girls/13 boys, 87.6% <2 years), all associated with diarrhea (bloody in 13, 40...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to analyse body composition of preterm infants fed with either breast milk or formula compared to a control group of full-term newborns. METHODS: Fifty-three newborns were enrolled: a group of 34 very low birth weight (VLBW) preterm newborns subdivided into a formula-fed (n = 23; group A) and breast milk-fed (n = 11; group B) group, and a control group of 19 full-term infants (group C). Their body composition was assessed by a bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) either at the estimated time of birth in the VLBW group or during the 1st week of life in the full-term group...

AIM: The present study evaluates the long-term clinical and nutritional effect to endoscopic balloon dilatation (EBD) in pediatric esophageal stricture. METHODS: This was a 15-year retrospective study involving pediatric patients with esophageal stricture treated with EBD. Outcome parameters included the number of dilatations, procedural success rates, nutritional status, and complications. EBD was performed in patients with a dysphagia score greater than 2. The nutritional status was assessed by weight-for-age z-score...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracoscopic bullectomy with pleurodesis is widely used to treat spontaneous pneumothorax. However, 1%-3% of patients experience postoperative complications that may require reoperation, such as bleeding or prolonged air leaks, and 3%-7% of patients require a repeat thoracoscopic bullectomy due to recurrence. Therefore, a modified procedure with improved outcomes is required. METHODS: Between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2015, 196 patients with spontaneous pneumothorax underwent thoracoscopic bullectomy and pleurodesis with or without fixation of the lung apex to the chest wall...
