Joubert syndrome (JS) and related disorders (JSRD) are a group of multiple congenital anomaly syndromes in which the diagnostic hallmark is the molar tooth sign (MTS), a complex midbrain malformation visible on brain imaging. Detection of the MTS should be followed by a diagnostic protocol to assess multi-organ involvement. The incidence of JSRD ranges between 1/80,000 and 1/100,000 live births, although these values may represent an underestimate. The neurological components of JSRD include hypotonia, ataxia, intellectual disability, abnormal eye movements, and neonatal breathing problems...

Teratomas are rare tumours which originate from all 3 germs cell layers namely endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm, with varying proportions of each component. The most common site of teratoma is in the sacro-coccygeal region. Teratomas are generally benign and have well appreciable clinical and histopathological features. Incidence of congenital teratoma is 1 in 4000. In head and neck region congenital teratomas usually associated with other anomalies like cystic hygroma and cleft palate with an incidence of 1 in 400...

Women with diabetes in pregnancy, either pre-gestational Diabetes Mellitus (Type 1 & Type 2) or Gestational Diabetes, are at increased risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes, including preterm labour and increased foetal mortality rate. Adequate glycaemic control before and during pregnancy is crucial for improving foetal and perinatal outcomes in these babies. Perinatal and neonatal morbidities and mortality rates have declined since the development of specialized maternal, foetal, and neonatal care for women with diabetes and their offspring...

BACKGROUND: Children born with extremely low birth weight (ELBW) have more respiratory tract complications during childhood. Little is known about respiratory and allergy problems in ELBW children at the threshold of adolescence. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A follow-up study was conducted at the age of 11 among ELBW children (n=65) and age-matched controls (n=36). The primary outcomes in the study were the occurrence of respiratory and allergy problems and the rate of hospitalization due to respiratory complications at the age of 11 years, assessed with a questionnaire...

Premature birth (PB) remains an unresolved problem, despite progress in prenatal medicine and the introduction of new methods and techniques of prolonged respiratory resuscitation in recent decades. Premature birth is the cause of 70% of neonatal mortality and 50% of long-term neurological complications in newborns, many of whom debilitating. Notwithstanding the significant progress prenatal care in the last twenty years in developed countries is a trend towards a gradual and continuous increase in premature births...

Neonatal respiratory distress (NRD) is a common neonatal problem, which is responsible for high morbidity and mortality. There are few published studies in developing countries addressing neonatal respiratory distress. There is no previously published study in Sudan on this problem. The objective of the study is to determine the frequency, different causes, immediate outcome. It was a prospective, descriptive, cross sectional hospital-based study which was carried out in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of Omdurman Maternity Hospital, between February-March 2013...

Whilst rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the third most common solid tumour in children, congenital RMS of the tongue is extremely rare and usually present as painless progressive mass since birth (Dagher and Helman in Oncologist 4:34-44, 1999; Childs and Goudy in Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 5:126-128, 2010). In neonates, presentation with respiratory distress is unexpected as neonates are preferential nasal breathers and restricted oral breathing due to tumour usually poses no problem. We herein report a case of rhabdomyosarcoma of the tongue with co-existent unilateral choanal atresia, presenting with respiratory distress...

BACKGROUND: Low birth weight is defined as the live births with less than 2.5 kg weight. It is a key determinant of infant survival, health and development. Low birth weight infants are at a greater risk of having a disability and for diseases such as cerebral palsy, visual problems, learning disabilities and respiratory problems. To reduce the low birth weight deliveries, we studied the maternal factors which adversely affect the fetus in utero and their impact on fetus. METHODS: A retrospective study was carried out on 40 low birth weight pregnancies out of 650 deliveries from July 2005 to Jun 2006...

BACKGROUND: Underwater birth is becoming increasingly popular because of the advantages for the mother. Women who deliver in this way feel less pain and therefore pain relief is less frequently needed during the delivery. But what seems to be forgotten is the fact that aspiration of water by the neonate could take place during an underwater birth, resulting in respiratory distress. CASE DESCRIPTION: A one-day-old neonate was admitted because of tachypnoea following underwater delivery at home...

A serious problem during intensive care and nursing of premature infants is the invasiveness of many examination methods. Urine is an excellent source of potential biomarkers due to the safety of the collection procedure. The purpose of this study was to determine the features specific for the urine proteome of preterm newborns and their changes under respiratory pathologies of infectious and non-infectious origin. The urine proteome of 37 preterm neonates with respiratory diseases and 10 full-term newborns as a control group were investigated using the LC-MS/MS method...

Laryngomalacia is the most common cause of stridor in neonates. It typically presents with inspiratory stridor and is often associated with feeding problems. Severe cases present with stridor, apnea, significant respiratory distress, and failure to thrive. Most patients are managed conservatively and can expect to see symptom resolution by 12-24 months of age. About 10% of patients require surgical treatment for their symptoms. Supraglottoplasty is the surgical technique of choice. Results of this surgery are excellent, and severe complications, such as supraglottic stenosis and aspiration, are uncommon...

The rhythm of breathing in mammals, originating within the brainstem pre-Bötzinger complex (pre-BötC), is presumed to be generated by glutamatergic neurons, but this has not been directly demonstrated. Additionally, developmental expression of the transcription factor Dbx1 or expression of the neuropeptide somatostatin (Sst), has been proposed as a marker for the rhythmogenic pre-BötC glutamatergic neurons, but it is unknown whether these other two phenotypically defined neuronal populations are functionally equivalent to glutamatergic neurons with regard to rhythm generation...
