BACKGROUND: The developmental period of the teenage years and young adulthood can be a challenging time for most. Experiencing a diagnosis of cancer during this time inevitably presents further challenges and concerns. Identifying such issues can help to provide better ways of understanding the patients' experience and their needs, offering nurses insight to enhance care and support for teenagers and young adults (TYAs) undergoing cancer treatments. AIM: To explore the literature regarding the psychological issues faced by TYAs during cancer treatment to inform nursing practice...

Primary intracranial choriocarcinoma (PICCC), a type of germ-cell tumor, is a very rare primary tumor of the central nervous system that generally arises in the pineal or suprasellar region. We present a case of a teenage boy with PICCC of the bilateral basal ganglia, an anatomic site for which we were unable to find the previous reports. We offer discussion of the differential diagnosis, imaging characteristics, and prognosis of PICCC and germ-cell tumors of the basal ganglia, in the hope that it will increase awareness and allow for early detection...

In addition to dealing with the normal challenges of being a teenager, many times LGBTQ youth have to deal with harassment, intimidation, and bullying on a daily basis as they disproportionately experience verbal and physical harassment while in school as a result of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. This violence adversely affects these students' health and well-being as reflected in the depression and suicide rate among LGBTQ youth. As Part 2 of a series in articles on caring for LGBTQ youth in a school setting, this article reviews specific health risks in this group of students...

BACKGROUND: To characterize the temporal dynamics of mumps epidemiology according to different vaccine strains used, we decomposed gender-specific trends in an age-period-cohort (APC) analysis for mumps cases reported in South Korea. METHODS: We used the national surveillance data to describe the epidemiology of mumps cases from 2001 to 2015. An APC model was used to break down the reported mumps cases into the effects of age, period, and birth cohort. RESULTS: From 2001 to 2015, the incidence started to increase from fewer than 10 cases to more than 100 cases per 100,000...

History A 63-year-old man with learning difficulties presented to the Accident and Emergency Department with right ankle pain after an inversion injury and underwent plain radiography. The patient had developed normally until his teenage years, at which point he experienced cognitive regression. He experienced swallowing difficulties, tinnitus, and fecal incontinence, and he had undergone cataract surgery at the age of 20 years. He also had a small nodule on the volar surface of his right ring finger. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the brain and the right ankle had been performed 3 years previously...

The aim of this study was to determine the association between verbal school bullying and possible sleep bruxism (SB) in adolescents. A case-control study was carried out at the population level by recruiting 13- to 15-year old participants among the attendants of schools of Itabira, Brazil. The case group was composed of 103 adolescents with possible SB (i.e., self- or parental-reported), while the control group included 206 adolescents without possible SB. All participants answered a questionnaire on the occurrence of their involvement in verbal school bullying episodes, based on the National School of Health Research (PeNSE) as well as an evaluation of their economic class according to the criteria of the Brazilian Association of Research Companies...

The majority of medications in children are administered in an unlicensed or off-label manner. Paediatricians are obliged to prescribe using the limited evidence available. The 2007 EU regulation on the use of paediatric drugs means pharmaceutical companies are now obliged to (and receive incentives for) contributing to paediatric drug data and carrying out paediatric clinical trials. This is important, as the efficacy and adverse effect profiles of medicines vary across childhood. Additionally, there are significant age-related changes in the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic activity of many drugs...

Lately, microdeletions of the 22q region, responsible for DiGeorge syndrome or velocardiofacial syndrome, have been increasingly related to neuropsychiatric disorders including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. These manifestations seem to be related to certain genes located in the hemideleted region such as the proline dehydrogenase (PRODH) and the catechol-o-methyltransferase (COMT) genes. We describe a teenager who started his adolescent psychiatric care presenting cognitive impairment, irritable mood and aggressive behaviour with schizophrenia-like symptoms that scored 153 in the Positive and Negative Symptoms Scale (PANSS) assessment...

Mucopolysaccharidoses are a group of rare lysosomal storage diseases including a great number of polymorph syndromes, each being related to a particular mutation responsible for a deficiency of glycosaminoglycan degrading enzymes, leading to an accumulation of glycosaminoglycans in tissues. Many of them are diagnosed in children or teenagers and have a severe prognosis because of organ failure, and are consequently usually not seen by the adult rheumatologist. However, some of them have a more progressive presentation, with musculoskeletal symptoms at the forefront and a lifespan that nearly reaches that of the general population...

Research on executive control during the teenage years points to shortfalls in emotion regulation, coping, and decision making as three linked capabilities associated with youth's externalizing behavior problems. Evidence gleaned from a detailed review of the literature makes clear that improvement of all three capabilities is critical to help young people better navigate challenges and prevent or reduce externalizing and related problems. Moreover, interventions can successfully improve these three capabilities and have been found to produce behavioral improvements with real-world significance...

METHOD: Participants and their parents completed the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory 4.0. RESULTS: Patients with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis and their parents reported lower quality of life than healthy subjects (p < 0...

Previous studies indicated that populations consuming a Mediterranean diet rich in fiber, vegetables, and fruits have a significantly lower risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases than populations of industrialized societies consuming diets enriched in processed carbohydrates, animal proteins, and fats. To explore the potential contributions of gut microbiota to the observed diet-related metabolic effects, we conducted an integrative analysis of distal gut microbiota composition and functions and intestinal metabolites in Egyptian and U...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: We report the first teenage case of ketamine-induced transient central diabetes insipidus. CASE SUMMARY: The patient was an 18-year-old woman with moyamoya disease undergoing an external carotid to internal carotid bypass and given a low-dose ketamine infusion. After approximately 2 hours in the supine position, with 0.5 Minimum Alveolar Concentration (MAC) of sevoflurane, a propofol infusion at 50 μg/kg/min, a remifentanil infusion at 0.5 μg/kg/min, and a ketamine infusion at a dose of 10 μg/kg/min, this patient had an excessive urine output...

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive, genetically determined neuromuscular disease that affects males and leads to severe physical disability in early teenage years. Over the last decades, patient-reported outcomes such as Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) gained great interest in clinical research. However, little is known about factors affecting HRQoL in boys with DMD. Data from the multi-center CARE-NMD project of boys with DMD from six European countries collected between 2011 and 2012 were analyzed (8-17 years old; n = 321)...
