Advances in critical care and technology capabilities may lead to new ethical encounters in paediatrics, especially in the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU). As each patient has unique psychosocial and clinical condition interactions, paediatricians and healthcare providers must develop and adopt a suitable approach for ethical decision-making in the PICU. The healthcare provider needs to balance the four ethical domains of autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice, and apply these principles to clinical decision-making...

The case described in this report is of a two-month-old boy who presented with severe hypothyroidism. The infant also had multiple hepatic haemangiomas. The cause of hypothyroidism was found to be due to consumption of the hormone by the tumour. The patient was put on high dose of thyroxin and medical treatment for the haemangiomas. He was followed for three years, cured from the haemangiomas, was no more suffering from hypothyroidism, and all treatments were stopped. More details about this case and similar other cases have been discussed...

Severe acute malnutrition (SAM) constitutes about a third of the estimated 8 million deaths in under 5-year-old children, and the World Health Organisation (WHO) protocol of management is used in hospital management. The present study aims to assess adherence to the WHO guidelines of management of SAM in children aged 6-59 months at Kalakla Turkish Hospital in Khartoum, Sudan. Medical records/files of 169 children, mean (standard deviation) age was 18.5 (10.4) months with a range of 6-54 months, admitted to the hospital were reviewed...

Seizures in children and neonatal period have variety of causes; however, most of childhood seizures are idiopathic. The aim of this study was to review the causes of epilepsy in children presenting in the first 2 years of life using the International League Against Epilepsy classification released in 2010. This was a retrospective chart review study that was conducted at a tertiary center in Saudi Arabia. Two hundred and twenty-one patients were included in the study, 31 with conditions mimic epilepsy were excluded...

Congenital brain malformations (CBMs) are a heterogeneous group characterised by abnormal structure of the developing brain. Their aetiology includes in-utero infections, teratogenicity and in a considerable group, genetic causes. Due to the high rate of consanguineous marriages and the possible high prevalence of prenatal infections in Sudan, CBMs are likely to be common. The main aim of this study was to review the clinical profile of children with CBMs attending two main tertiary paediatrics neurology outpatient clinics in Khartoum State, Sudan...

The objective of the study was to determine the causes of lactation failure (LF), factors affecting relactation in mothers having low milk supply (LMS) and LF, and to know the success rate of relactation by proper counselling and positive support group. It was a prospective hospital-based study conducted in tertiary care referral hospital in mothers with their biological infants of less than 4 months of age, who were admitted with LF and some breastfeeding (BF) related problems. Mothers were advised for frequent BF in proper position and good attachment under supervision of trained BF experts with good support group...

The noble practice of breast feeding is on the decline across the globe. Our objective was to research why women stop feeding their infants before the recommended 6 months of exclusive breast feeding and to assess the mothers' knowledge regarding importance and benefits of breast feeding. A cross-sectional study was conducted in two cities of Riyadh and Dammam using a structured questionnaire to 614 Saudi females in reproductive age group (15-45 years) from February to April 2016. Majority of the respondents were <30 years old, housewives and multiparous...

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is the most common cause of cardiac morbidity in Sudanese young people and it is particularly prevalent in Darfur area. A retrospective review of clinical and echocardiography (echo) data for children with RHD seen in Al Fashir Hospital from 2010 to 2016 was conducted. Data from the hospital statistics, outpatient and echo clinic records were collected and analysed. A control program was started based on training modules and public awareness material. In the study period, 324 patients were admitted and 3,777 patients with RHD were seen in outpatient clinics...

REVIEW
Majid Alfadhel, Amir Babiker
Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) are heterogeneous group of disorders that might present in the clinics or emergency departments in different phenotypes, and one of these is a diabetes scenario. Diabetes is the most common endocrine disorder among children. The mechanism of how IEM could lead to diabetes is unclear; however, the postulated pathogenesis consists of three mechanisms: 1) accumulation of toxic substance in the gland, ruining structure and normal functionality, 2) disturbing energy availability required for hormone synthesis and 3) defect of complex molecules...

A term, male infant weighing 4.725 kg, was born vaginally to a grand multipara, diabetic mother. The birth was difficult and needed assistance with ventose. At 48 hours of birth, the infant noted to be febrile (temperature of 38.5C) with dry skin. Shortly after that, he developed vomiting, loose motions, irritability, and seizure. Examination revealed a macrosomic, normotensive infant, with slightly prolonged capillary refill time (3 sec), clear lung fields, normal heart sounds, bilaterally palpable renal masses which was ovoid, smooth, and 10 × 5 cm in size...

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is the most common cause of acquired heart disease in children and young adults in developing countries. It results from throat infection with group A beta hemolytic streptococcus that proceeds to acute rheumatic fever (ARF). We report a 13 years old girl from Darfur presenting with recurrent acute rheumatic fever for 4 years that led to affection of all her heart valves with severe mitral and tricuspid regurgitation together with moderate pulmonary and mild aortic valve regurgitation...

Nephrotic syndrome is associated with hypercoagulable states and a subsequent high risk of venous and rarely arterial thromboembolism. Although venous thromboembolism has been a recognised risk, prevalence of pulmonary embolism in patients with nephrotic syndrome is based on data from different case series. Here we report a 5 year old child with nephrotic syndrome who developed life threatening cerebral dural venous sinus thrombosis and pulmonary embolism within a month of disease onset.
