OBJECTIVES: Incidental isolated mild to moderate thrombocytopenia is a frequent laboratory finding prompting a referral to pediatric hematology-oncology. We tested the hypothesis that patients with isolated asymptomatic mild thrombocytopenia would not progress to require an intervention from a pediatric hematologist-oncologist. METHODS: This is a 5-year retrospective review of 113 patients referred to pediatric hematology-oncology for isolated thrombocytopenia. Initial, lowest, and current platelet counts along with clinical course and need for interventions were recorded...

The purpose of the survey was to evaluate the development and current use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in Poland between 1989-2016. The data for analysis (indication, number of performed HSCT, HSCT type, donor type, and stem cell source, year) have been collected annually using a standardized form. In Poland, between 1989-2016, the number of pediatric transplant beds grew from one to 40 and number and rate of transplants increased annually from 1/year (0.8/10 million) to 186/year (248/10 million)...

Introduction: acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is being diagnosed in an increasing number of children in our Department. In the developed countries, the treatment of this hematologic malignancy can cure almost 80% of children. In developing countries, few studies focus on acute leukemias in children. The results of cancer treatments in children are disappointing in most African countries, with a survival rate of 10-15%. This study aimed to investigate the clinical, biological, therapeutic and evolutionary features of ALL in children...

In pediatric oncology, the diagnosis of a hematologic malignancy and presence of a central venous catheter (CVC) have been identified as significant risk factors for the development of a venous thromboembolism (VTE). There remain little data regarding CVC factors associated with CVC-related VTE. Using the VTE and oncology database in a quaternary care center, a retrospective cohort study was conducted in children below 18 years old with hematologic cancer from November 5, 2012 to April 4, 2016. Patient, CVC factors, and VTE occurrence were analyzed to identify significant patient and CVC factors associated with the development of clinically identified CVC-related VTE...

INTRODUCTION: Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (NK/T), nasal type, is an infrequent neoplasm with a high lethality, characterized by bone destruction around the sinus, nasal septum or obstruction of the airway. Also, may be primary skin involvement, airway and other organs. Objecti ve: Submit a rare condition in the pediatric population, in order to facilitate the diagnostic suspicion and quick recognition from specialists.

The last decade has brought increasing recognition that the wellness of health care providers has an impact on the quality of care, patient satisfaction, and health care economics. This review will describe models of burnout, discuss the impact of burnout on medicine with a focus on pediatric hematologists/oncologists, and present interventions that may help ameliorate physician burnout.

BACKGROUND: It is known that information regarding the quality of life of a patient is central to pediatric palliative care. This information allows professionals to adapt the care and support provided to children and their families. Previous studies have documented the major areas to be investigated in order to assess the quality of life, although it is not yet known what operational criteria or piece of information should be used in the context of pediatric palliative care. The present study aims to: 1) Identify signs of quality of life and evaluation methods currently used by professionals to assess the quality of life of children with cancer receiving palliative care...

BACKGROUND: In the U.S., more children die from cancer than from any other disease, and more than one third die in the hospital setting. These data have been replicated even in subpopulations of children with cancer enrolled on a palliative care service. Children with cancer who die in high-acuity inpatient settings often experience suffering at the end of life, with increased psychosocial morbidities seen in their bereaved parents. Strategies to preemptively identify children with cancer who are more likely to die in high-acuity inpatient settings have not been explored...

Background: Pediatric cancer causes reduced life quality and psychological problems for parents. It is necessary to pay attention to spirituality, which plays a significant role in increasing the life quality of these parents and their patient children and managing the conditions associated with the disease. This study was performed to determine factors predisposing to spiritual care in parents of children suffering from cancer. Methods: This qualitative study was conducted by conventional content analysis...

Thromboembolism frequently occurs during acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) therapy. We prospectively registered thromboembolic events during the treatment of 1772 consecutive Nordic/Baltic patients with ALL aged 1 to 45 years who were treated according to the Nordic Society of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology ALL2008 protocol (July 2008-April 2017). The 2.5-year cumulative incidence of thromboembolism (N = 137) was 7.9% (95% confidence interval [CI], 6.6-9.1); it was higher in patients aged at least 10 years ( P < ...

The study was conducted methodologically to adapt the Adapted Rhodes Index of Nausea and Vomiting for Pediatrics by Child (ARINVc) and Adapted Rhodes Index of Nausea and Vomiting for Pediatrics by Parent (ARINVp) into Turkish. The scales are administered to children who receive chemotherapy and to their parents, respectively. The study sample consisted of 8- to 18-year-old children who were hospitalized in the pediatric oncology and hematology clinics of a university hospital, met the sampling criteria, and agreed to participate in the research...

The care of pediatric patients with cancer and their families is complex and rapidly evolving. Despite significant advances in outcomes, symptoms of the disease and complications of therapy continue to cause suffering that may improve with the involvement of pediatric palliative care (PPC) services. This descriptive study responds to the observation of great variability in PPC utilization within pediatric oncology. Data collected from 156 health care professionals (nurses, advanced practice professionals, and physicians) from a statewide hematology alliance evaluates the knowledge, beliefs, and perceived barriers to PPC involvement...

Immunocompromised children and adolescents receiving treatment for cancer have a considerably increased risk for infection. Neutropenia is the most important single risk factor for infectious complications, and fever in neutropenia is considered as an emergency. Whereas guidelines for the management of fever in neutropenic adults have been established for decades, specific pediatric guidelines have not been developed until recently. As children differ in many aspects from adults such as in the underlying malignancy or in the availability and dosing of antimicrobial compounds, guidelines for pediatric patients are important...

Therapy-related leukemia (t-leukemia) is associated with dismal prognosis. Published pediatric t-leukemia data are somewhat outdated and may not reflect recent advances in treatment. We report a retrospective nationwide survey of patients diagnosed between 2000 and 2013 in Japan. We identified 43 patients with pediatric t-leukemia; 33 had t-acute myeloid leukemia (t-AML), eight had t-acute lymphoblastic leukemia (t-ALL) and two had t-acute undifferentiated leukemia. Median age at onset and latency were 12 years and 3...

The t(7;12)(q36;p13) (MNX1/ETV6) is not included in the WHO classification but has been described in up to 30% of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in children <2 years and associated with a poor prognosis. We present the clinical and cytogenetics characteristics of AML cases with t(7;12)(p36;p13). A literature review identified 35 patients with this translocation, published between 2000 and 2015. Outcome data were available in 22 cases. The NOPHO-AML (Nordic Society for Pediatric Hematology and Oncology) database contained 651 patients with AML from 1993 to 2014 and seven (1...
