Sepsis is the systemic response to infection manifested as hyperthermia or hypothermia, tachycardia, tachypnea, and shock. This condition represents a major life-threatening factor in all age groups, particularly in neonatal period. The present study aimed to examine the results of blood, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and urine culture tests in suspected neonatal sepsis cases in northwestern Iran.This descriptive-analytical study was conducted on suspected neonatal sepsis cases hospitalized in Tabriz Children's Hospital...

Background: Sepsis is one of the major contributor of morbidity and mortality in pediatric cardiac surgeries. Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the predictive efficacy of total leukocyte counts (TC), platelet count (PC), and procalcitonin (PCT) for sepsis in patients undergoing cardiac surgeries who are admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. Materials and Methods: This prospective, single-center study included 300 neonates, infants, and pediatric patients who had undergone various open heart surgeries at our center from September 2014 to November 2015...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the relation between maternal, fetal and neonatal outcomes and different forms of hypertensive disorders associating pregnancy in women needed intensive care units (ICU) admission. METHODS: A prospective case control study conducted on 1238 women admitted to hypertensive intensive care unit at three university hospitals. They were classified into four groups. Group I included 472 women with severe preeclampsia (PE), Group II included 243 women with eclampsia (E); Group III included 396 women diagnosed with E associated with HELLP syndrome and Group IV included 127 women diagnosed as HELLP syndrome...

The request of blood cultures in medical care is frequent, especially in Neonatal Units, where it is performed routinely in case of suspected early or late sepsis. The purpose of this document is to standardize the sampling technique in order to increase its performance and establish criteria to interpret a positive blood culture.

The clinical and etiological pattern of ventilated newborns, their outcome in relation to morbidity and mortality was studied with 50 ventilated newborns, including outborns. M:f ratio was 2.1:1. The most common gestational age 28-36 weeks (60%) and mostly were appropriate for gestational age (66%). Survival rate 40% (20/50) being directly proportional to the gestational age and intrauterine growth pattern ( P < 0.01). Babies by LSCS Lower Segment Cessarian Section survived more than born by normal vaginal delivery (46...

Premature birth has been associated with poor neurodevelopmental outcomes. However, the relation between such outcomes and brain growth in the neonatal period has not yet been fully elucidated. This study investigates longitudinal brain development between birth and term-equivalent age (TEA) by quantitative imaging in a cohort of premature infants born between 26 and 36 weeks gestational age (GA), to provide insight into the relation of brain growth with later neurodevelopmental outcomes. Longitudinal T2-weighted magnetic resonance images (MRI) of 84 prematurely born infants acquired shortly after birth and TEA were automatically segmented into cortical gray matter (CGM), unmyelinated white matter (UWM), subcortical gray matter (SGM), cerebellum (CB) and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Sepsis leads to systemic inflammatory response with cerebral blood flow (CBF) alteration and blood-brain barrier disruption that contribute to sepsis-associated encephalopathy (SAE). We aimed to evaluate cord blood neuron-specific enolase (cNSE) and CBF in early-onset neonatal sepsis (EONS) as predictors of SAE and to define short-term neurodevelopmental outcomes among survivors. METHODS: cNSE was measured in 200 neonates with antenatal risk factors for EONS, stratified into two groups: sepsis (n = 96) and no-sepsis (n = 104)...

Streptococcus agalactiae (SGB) es causa de infecciones severas en menores de tres meses. Meningitis, neumonía y sepsis son los principales cuadros en estos niños. Estas infecciones se encuentran entre las más graves que puede sufrir un individuo en sus primeras doce horas de vida. El niño adquiere la infección por transmisión vertical de la madre colonizada. Para prevenir la enfermedad neonatal se recomienda penicilina como droga de elección en la profilaxis intraparto (PIP) en embarazadas colonizadas...

BACKGROUND: Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an emerging arboviral infection with a global distribution and may cause fetal and neonatal infections after maternal CHIKV-infections during gestation. METHODOLOGY: We performed a systematic review to evaluate the risk for: a) mother-to-child transmission (MTCT), b) antepartum fetal deaths (APFD), c) symptomatic neonatal disease, and d) neonatal deaths from maternal CHIKV-infections during gestation. We also recorded the neonatal clinical manifestations after such maternal infections (qualitative data synthesis)...

Objectives: To study the recent trends in maternal and perinatal outcomes of triplet pregnancy from a perinatal centre in South India. Methods: All triplet pregnancies booked at Fernandez hospital, Hyderabad (a tertiary care perinatal centre in South India), or those referred between 2000 and 2014 were included in the study. The maternal, fetal and neonatal outcome and any interventions like cerclage, steroid administration were studied. Results: There were 82 triplet deliveries over the study period of 15 years (82 per 69,584 live births)...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize the independent association between antibiotic exposure in the first week of life and the risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) or death among very preterm infants without culture-confirmed sepsis. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study using the Optum Neonatal Database. Infants without culture-confirmed sepsis born less than 1500 g and less than 32 weeks gestation between 1/2010 and 11/2016 were included. The independent association between antibiotic therapy during the first week of life and BPD or death prior to 36 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA) was assessed by multivariable logistic regression...

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: In 2016, there was a massive outbreak of chikungunya in North India. During the epidemic, we observed many neonatal and early infantile cases of chikungunya, with a probable perinatal transmission. Methods: This retrospective study was carried out in a tertiary care neonatal centre between August 2016 and November 2016. Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) infection was detected and confirmed by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and/or serology (anti-CHIKV IgM) in mothers and infants...

SslE (YghJ), a cell surface associated and secreted lipoprotein was identified as a potential vaccine candidate for extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli providing nearly complete protection from sepsis in a mouse model. We earlier found that SslE from neonatal septicemic E. coli could trigger the secretion of various proinflammatory cytokines in murine macrophages, the signaling pathway of which is still obscure. In this study, we showed that SslE specifically binds to TLR2/TLR1 heterodimer and recruits downstream adaptors MyD88, TIRAP and TRAF6...

We aimed to evaluate the isolation of strains contained in the Infloran™ probiotic preparation in blood cultures and its efficacy in reducing necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and late-onset sepsis (LOS) in extremely preterm infants. Routine use of probiotics was implemented in 2008. Infants born at <28 weeks gestational age were prospectively followed and compared with historical controls (HC) born between 2005 and 2008. Data on sepsis due to any of the two probiotic strains contained in Infloran and rates of LOS and NEC were analysed...

Severe urea cycle defects (UCDs), organic acidemias (OAs), and maple syrup urine disease (MSUD) are life-threatening disorders presenting in the first days of life. Renal replacement therapy (RRT) is an emergency option in affected newborns, mostly performed as ultima ratio. We report our 10-year experience using emergency RRT in newborns with UCDs, OAs, and MSUD. Twelve newborns (8 with UCDs, 2 with methylmalonic acidemia, and 2 with MSUD) underwent emergency RRT. The overall survival rate to RRT was 58.3%...
