Urolithiasis is a disease characterized by the presence of stones in the kidney or urinary tract. It is often detected accidentally during an ultrasound or an abdominal x-ray performed for other reasons. However, the first symptom of kidney stone disease can be severe pain called renal colic. Pain caused by a colic attack is characterized by sudden onset. In half of the cases it is associated with nausea or vomiting and can lead to hypotension and fainting. The exact location and radiation of the pain depends on the location of the stone in the urinary tract...

The method and technique of feeding a young child affect the shape of the maxillofacial complex. Breastfeeding is the recommended method of feeding in the first six months of life. It is encouraged to continue natural feeding in later months, simultaneously developing other food extraction techniques. The correct formation of the stomatognathic system is a result of the correct organization of the motor patterns during feeding.

3-Methylcrotonylglycinuria (3-MCG) is an autosomal recessive inborn error of leucine metabolism caused by the deficiency of 3-methylocrotonyl-CoA carboxylase (3-MCC deficiency). It is the most commonly detected organic aciduria in newborn screening conducted by tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) [1, 2]. The clinical phenotype is heterogeneous, ranging from asymptomatic to acute metabolic decompensations [3, 4]. Although at least in severe cases and in acute life threatening episodes limiting natural protein intake (particularly leucine) together with high caloric intake during catabolic periods is required, the need for specific dietary management often seems questionable [2]...

Urolithiasis, a condition in which calculi are found in the urinary tract, has been known for centuries. Although the disease was considered casuistic in the pediatric population, its prevalence is rising among both children and infants. The occurrence of the disease is greater in developed countries, therefore urolithiasis should be considered a lifestyle disease. Its etiopathogenesis has not yet been well understood. Kidney stone formation is influenced by factors such as climate, eating habits, profession, fluid intake, genetic predisposition, urinary tract infections and malformations of the urinary tract...

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of autosomal recessive disorders characterized by impaired cortisol synthesis. The most common form of CAH is caused by mutations in CYP21A, the gene encoding the adrenal steroid 21-hydroxylase enzyme. Deficiency of the enzyme leads to life-threatening adrenocortical insufficiency, which is not demonstrable during the first days of life. Additionally, some of the affected neonates have varying degrees of pathology of the external genitalia, classified as disorders of sex development (DSD)...

Preexcitation syndromes are becoming a more often detected disease in the pediatric population. Their essential feature is the presence of additional paths / pathways in the heart, through which the impulse is conducted faster than physiologically. This leads to faster ventricular excitation and may lead to creating dangerous arrhythmias. The most common preexcitation syndrome is Wolff - Parkinson-White syndrome, which affects 2/ 1000 people. The presence of an accessory pathway could result in serious consequences, ranging from supraventricular tachycardia to sudden cardiac death...

Vaccinations in Poland and other industrialized countries have been in the firing line for more than two decades. Members of the "anti-vaccine movement" and alternative medicine supporters are openly reluctant to this form of preventing infectious diseases, however their arguments are not based on reliable medical data. Contrary to false theories, the threat of infectious diseases is not lower than in the past. What is more, it has escalated in recent years as a result of the increasing number of parents who avoid vaccinations...

Nitric oxide is produced by enzymes called nitric oxide synthases. It fulfills many important functions in the human body, but produced in excess amount has a proinflammatory activity. Fractional exhaled nitric oxide measurements are used in the diagnosis and monitoring of eosinophilic inflammation in the lower airways, but should not be used as an independent parameter to make a diagnosis of asthma or for the monitoring of asthma treatment. Evaluation of fractional exhaled nitric oxide concentrations is also used to determine the pathogenesis of symptoms in patients with rhinitis...
