BACKGROUND: Chronic disseminated candidiasis (CDC) is a severe invasive fungal infection principally observed during neutrophil recovery in patients with acute leukemia treated with intensive chemotherapy. Its pathophysiology remains unclear. We describe the management of six children with symptomatic CDC who did not respond to antifungal therapy. METHODS: The databases of the hematology-oncology departments of two tertiary pediatric medical centers were searched for all patients diagnosed with CDC from 2003 to 2015 who responded to corticosteroids after failing antifungal therapy...

Patients presenting to the emergency department with chest pain are common and a cause of significant concern to patients and families and physicians alike. The causes of chest pain are myriad. These causes span diverse categories including cardiovascular, respiratory, abdominal and gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, psychiatric, hematologic and oncologic, and neurologic Thull-Freedman (2010) [1]. These diverse etiologies present a diagnostic and management challenge to the ER physician who is tasked to minimize unnecessary diagnostics while not missing any significant disease...

Vocal cord dysfunction (VCD)-associated symptoms are not rare in pediatric patients. Dyspnea, wheezing, stridor, chest pain or tightness and throat discomfort are the most commonly encountered symptoms. They may occur either at rest or more commonly during exercise in patients with VCD, as well as in asthmatic subjects. The phase of respiration (inspiration rather than expiration), the location of the wheezing origin, the rapid resolution of symptoms, and the timing occurring in relation to exercise, when VCD is exercise induced, raise the suspicion of VCD in patients who may have been characterized as merely asthmatics and, most importantly, had not responded to the appropriate treatment...

BACKGROUND: Tetanus is a severe infectious disease that can lead to death. The clinical manifestations are due to an exotoxin secreted by Clostridium tetani, a spore-producing Gram-positive bacillus. The penetration of the germ is made through a skin opening, independently of the size of the wound. CASE PRESENTATION: A 13-year-old black African boy of the Bantu ethnic group with unknown tetanus vaccination status presented to our pediatric emergency room for the management of chest and vertebral pains which started a few days after traditional treatment by scarification and herbal and leaf ointment...

Chest pain is a typical symptom of acute myocarditis in adolescents. It may be indistinguishable from myocardial ischemia so it is called "infarct-like pattern." Cardiovascular magnetic resonance has an important role as a non-invasive diagnostic tool. The aim of our study is to provide a description of an acute myocarditis series with infarct-like pattern and to evaluate the cardiovascular magnetic resonance role in a pediatric population. We included all pediatric patients (0-16 years) admitted to our hospital (May 2007-May 2016) with clinical diagnosis of acute myocarditis and infarct-like presentation (chest pain, EKG alterations, and released cardiac biomarkers)...

OBJECTIVE: Using a Standardized Clinical Assessment and Management Plan (SCAMP) for pediatric patients presenting to clinic with chest pain, we evaluated the cost impact associated with implementation of the care algorithm. Prior to introduction of the SCAMP, we analyzed charges for 406 patients with chest pain, seen in 2009, and predicted 21% reduction of overall charges had the SCAMP methodology been used. The SCAMP recommended an echocardiogram for history, examination, or ECG findings suggestive of a cardiac etiology for chest pain...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Life expectancy is increasing in cystic fibrosis and new aspects of the disease have to be taken into account in cystic fibrosis care. RECENT FINDINGS: Pain is encountered among 70% of adult and pediatric patients with cystic fibrosis. This symptom is underestimated by the multidisciplinary team. It has been reported as impacting quality of life and adherence to treatments. The location of pain is inconstant among the different studies but the major symptoms are headaches, gastrointestinal, and chest pain...

Importance: Pneumonia is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in children. It is important to identify the clinical symptoms and physical examination findings associated with pneumonia to improve timely diagnosis, prevent significant morbidity, and limit antibiotic overuse. Objective: To systematically review the accuracy of symptoms and physical examination findings in identifying children with radiographic pneumonia. Data Sources and Study Selection: MEDLINE and Embase (1956 to May 2017) were searched, along with reference lists from retrieved articles, to identify diagnostic studies of pediatric pneumonia across a broad age range that had to include children younger than age 5 years (although some studies enrolled children up to age 19 years); 3644 unique articles were identified, of which 23 met inclusion criteria...

Acute pericarditis is the most common disease of the pericardium encountered in clinical practice. It is diagnosed in 0.1% of all admissions and 5% of emergency room admissions for chest pain. In developed countries, it is usually due to a benign cause. Idiopathic and infectious pericarditis are more common than secondary to surgical pericardiotomy or neoplastic causes, whereas tuberculosis is the dominant cause in developing countries. The most common symptoms of pericarditis are characteristic chest pain and fever...
