Hypophosphatemic rickets is a rare form of rickets that affect children. The diagnosis requires high index of suspicion. We report a case of Hypophosphatemic rickets in 18-month-old Saudi boy presented with delayed walking and lower limb deformity. The diagnosis was confirmed by bone profile, radiological study and genetic testing, which reveled PHEX mutation. The patient was successfully treated by phosphate supplement.

A 10-year-old girl was admitted to the Emergency Department due to a history of intermittent pain located in the left radiocarpal joint for a month, as well as in the interphalangeal joints of the left hand without any additional symptoms. Clinical examination revealed mild sensory deficits and diminished muscle strength of the left upper limb without any other pathologic findings. A Magnetic Resonance Imaging scan of the brain and spinal cord was performed, which confirmed a diagnosis of thoracic syringomyelia...

Sideroblastic anemia is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by the presence of ring sideroblasts in the bone marrow, and has congenital and acquired forms. Congenital sideroblastic anemia is a rare condition, which is mostly X-linked, caused by mutations of delta-aminolevulinic acid synthase 2. We describe one case of congenital sideroblastic anemia, indicating an autosomal recessive inheritance, with its clinico-hematological profile. It is important to recognize this entity early in life as a significant percentage of cases respond to pyridoxine thus avoiding any long-term complications...

Neural tube defects (NTDs) are one of the most common structural malformations in human kind. It is a public health problem with great impact on the child, parents and the community at large. The aim is to study the epidemiological profile and patterns of NTDs in under five-year of age Sudanese children who attended the neurosurgical clinic at the National Centre of Neurological Sciences (NCNS), Khartoum during the period from March 2014 to December 2014.

Growth Hormone (GH) deficiency is the most common pituitary hormone deficiency in children. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the brain detects structural pituitary anomalies associated with GH deficiency. This retrospective hospital-based study was conducted at King Khalid University hospital (KKUH), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, during the period (January 1995-June 2016). The available radiological, clinical and laboratory records of all children with confirmed GH deficiency by dynamic testing who had MRI brain were reviewed...

The infection by Helicobacter Pylori (HP), a gram-negative bacillus, is more prevalent in the developing countries, and more often among younger people reaching up to 10% of the population in comparison to only 0.5% in more developed world. Generally HP is asymptomatic in children. This study aimed to determining the prevalence of Hp among Sudanese children and to recognize associated epidemiological features. It was a prospective cross sectional study at Gaafar Ibn Aouf children hospital (GCH) in the period between December 2010 and May 2011...

Nader M Osman, Ali Al Sanosi
Bartter syndrome is a rare inherited defect in the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle. It is characterized by low potassium levels (hypokalaemia), increased blood pH (alkalosis) and normal to low blood pressure. There are three types of Bartter syndrome: neonatal, the classic type and Gitelman syndrome. Nephropathic cystinosis is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by accumulation of free cystine in lysosomes due to disorder of lysosomal transport that can lead to end stage renal failure within 10 years and multiorgan impairment...

Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS) is a rare, sporadic neurocutaneous disorder. It is typically characterized by unilateral, posterior leptomeningeal angiomas that calcify, glaucoma, and facial portwine tains. Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital syndrome characterized by ipsilateral cutaneous capillary malformations, venous varicosities, and bony or soft tissue overgrowth of the affected limbs. The clinical, neuroradiological features as well as the outcome of a Saudi boy who was referred to the Division of Pediatric Neurology, King Saud University Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with intractable focal seizure and left-sided hemiparesis who was eventually diagnosed with combined SWS and KTS is described here...

Suhair A Othman, Amel A Malik
Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA), also called hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type IV (HSAN-IV), is an extremely rare autosomal recessive disease. It is characterized by insensitivity to pain, inability to sweat, episodes of hyperpyrexia, and intellectual disability. These factors render the affected persons to repeatedly injure and traumatise themselves to the degree that they become disabled. No specific treatment to the moment, but it needs multidisciplinary approach, and certain life adaptations and education...
