BACKGROUND: Preterm infants are at risk for neurodevelopmental sequelae even in absence of major cerebral lesions. The hypothesis that Human Recombinant Erythropoietin (rEpo) could improve the neurodevelopmental outcome in risk neonates has raised the highest interest in recent years. METHODS: A group of preterm neonates born at a gestational age ≤ 30 weeks and free from major cerebral lesions or major visual impairment, were included in the study if they had a complete neurologic evaluation for at least 24 months of postmenstrual age...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the characteristics of jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia in the newborn population of both immigrant and Italian mothers. METHODS: The authors studied a group of 1,680 infants born at "A. Gemelli" hospital during 1 y. All were with appropriate weight for gestational age, weighting more than 2,500 g, born to low-risk pregnancy. Maternal ethnicity, clinically evident jaundice (that is total serum bilirubin (TSB) > 7 mg/dL), hyperbilirubinemia (TSB > 12 mg/dL), the duration of hospital stay and their need of phototherapy were evaluated...

PURPOSE: Every year 300,000 children with accidental head trauma are admitted to Italian emergency departments. Our aims were: (1) to describe patients with minor traumatic brain injury who were admitted to pediatric departments and underwent CT, and (2) to analyze the appropriateness of management according to current guidelines. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed patients with minor head injury (median age 4.5 years, range 1 month to 16 years) who were admitted to the pediatric department of the Catholic Medical School of Rome, from January 2005 to September 2010, who performed head CT...

This retrospective, study compared the efficacy and safety of Ibuprofen-Lysinate (Arfen, intramuscular formulation, Group I, n=156) used during 2000-2005 and Sodium-ibuprofen (Pedea, intravenous solution, Group II, n=60) used during 2006-2008, for the prophylaxis of Patent Ductus Arteriosus in inborn neonates with gestational age ≤ 28 weeks. Ductus closure rate after prophylaxis was significantly higher (73.1% vs 50%; P=0.002) and surgical ligation significantly lower (8.2% vs 23.3%; P=0.005) in Group I. A smaller number of neonates of Group I vs Group II showed oliguria and hemorrhagic disease...

BACKGROUND: There is no agreement to define the target FiO2 to adopt in the lung recruitment phase during HFOV in preterm infants. We report our experience of an optimal lung volume strategy (OLVS), defined as FiO2≤0.25 during the recruitment phase, in a cohort of neonates with gestational age (GA) ≤27 weeks treated with elective HFOV for respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) between July 2006 and September 2008. METHODS: FiO2 used during the recruitment phase was different according to physician' evaluation...

BACKGROUND: It has been reported that the reninangiotensin- aldosterone system of healthy newborn infants and pre-term infants responds to acute furosemide challenge. OBJECTIVE: To assess urinary aldosterone excretion (UAE) and electrolytic balance in very low-birth weight (VLBW) infants who received chronic therapy with furosemide and to compare them with those of infants who did not receive diuretic therapy. METHODS: Infants with birth weight <1500 g were considered eligible for this prospective observational study...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of probiotics in the prevention of gastrointestinal colonization by Candida species, of late-onset sepsis and neurological outcome in preterm newborns. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective study was conducted in 249 preterms who were subdivided into three groups: one group (n=83) was supplemented with Lactobacillus (L.) reuteri, one group with L. rhamnosus (n=83) and the other with no supplementation (n=83). The fungal colonization in the gastrointestinal tract, the late onset of sepsis and clinical parameters were recorded...

BACKGROUND: About 1-2% of infants born to mothers with Graves' disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis develop neonatal hyperthyroidism because of transplacental passage of IgG stimulating TSH receptors (TRAb). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of maternal total thyroidectomy on neonatal clinical course. METHODS: We describe two brothers born to a mother with Graves' disease, before and after total thyroidectomy. RESULTS: The first child showed persistent tachycardia, the presence of TRAb and a laboratory pattern of hyperthyroidism...

A case of a pregnancy occurring in a woman with previously diagnosed Wegener's granulomatosis and the following neonatal follow-up are described. Complete clinical and laboratory disappearance of disease activity was achieved by steroid treatment before pregnancy. The newborn was followed up for 6 months; he always showed normal clinical and laboratory exams, except a mild and transient neutropenia.

OBJECTS: In literature, excessive perioperative haemorrhage and related haemodynamic instability have been described as major risk factors in hemispherectomy. In this report we analyse the impact of neurosurgical operation on both the haematological and coagulative patterns of these children, especially focusing on younger patients. METHODS: From 1993 to 2003, 18 consecutive children suffering from intractable epilepsia and treated by hemispherectomy were admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) of Catholic University Medical School, Policlinico Gemelli, Rome...

Neonatal Lupus Syndrome is a rare disease caused by placental passage of maternal autoantibodies. Pathogenesis is partially unknown and many clinical manifestations are possible. We report on newborn siblings who presented with different symptoms of Neonatal Lupus Syndrome. One patient presented with congenital heart block and another with hepatic and haematologic involvement. Cases of Neonatal Lupus among siblings are very rare, because of the high risk of pregnancy in affected women. Various clinical expressions may be explained by a different specificity of Anti-Ro autoantibodies among siblings...

The Authors report an update relative to the dietetic prevention strategies in the high allergic risk subject, as proposed from more recent literature. The babies with a familiar history of atopia are defined as population with allergic risk. The Authors examine the role of early exposure to cow's milk formulas and maternal diet during breast-feeding as risk factors for allergic symptoms in such babies. Moreover, they examine the indications for hydrolisated milk (partial and extensive) formulas and soy milk formulas use, as reported in published Meta-analysis and official statements of several Scientific Associations...

To detect the passage of cosmic ray particles through the heads of the pocket mice during the Apollo XVII flight, a "monitor" (dosimeter) composed of plastics was prepared and implanted under the scalp. The monitor was mounted on a platform, the undersurface of which fitted the contour of the skull. Numerous tests were run to assure that the presence of the monitor assembly beneath the scalp would be compatible with the well-being of the mice and that the capacity of the monitor to detect the traversal of cosmic ray particles would be preserved over the several weeks during which it would remain under the scalp...
