REVIEW
Davide Mei, Elena Parrini, Carla Marini, Renzo Guerrini
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has contributed to the identification of many monogenic epilepsy syndromes and is favouring earlier and more accurate diagnosis in a subset of paediatric patients with epilepsy. The cumulative information emerging from NGS studies is rapidly changing our comprehension of the relations between early-onset severe epilepsy and the associated neurological impairment, progressively delineating specific entities previously gathered under the umbrella definition of epileptic encephalopathies, thereby influencing treatment choices and limiting the most aggressive drug regimens only to those conditions that are likely to actually benefit from them...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety, cosmetic and functional outcome of craniofacial reconstruction surgery for primary craniosynostosis and clefts. METHODS: This quasi-experimental study was conducted at the Combined Military Hospital, Rawalpindi, Pakistan, from June 2011 to December 2014, and comprised paediatric patients undergoing calvarial reconstructive procedures. Fronto-orbital advancement and reconstruction, total calvarial remodelling and box flap reconstruction techniques were used...

During the past decade, combined PET/MRI has been translated from a basic technical concept to a clinical research tool and a clinically applied hybrid imaging modality. Numerous clinical and scientific applications have been proposed for this novel hybrid modality including oncologic, neurologic and cardiovascular imaging. Among these, PET/MRI in children has emerged as a key application, not only due to possible diagnostic advantages but also because of reduced radiation exposure compared to alternative techniques...

Children with muscular diseases constitute an important group in paediatric neurology. Some of the conditions are very serious and require extensive interdisciplinary treatment and facilitation. There is some degree of optimism regarding the possibility of causal treatment in some of the conditions.

OBJECTIVES: The Berlin Heart EXCOR(®) (EXCOR) paediatric ventricular assist device is used worldwide for mechanical support of infants and small children with end-stage heart failure. A clinically important gap between the smallest EXCOR blood pump (10 ml) and the next larger size (25 ml) limited the choice of pump size in patients with a body surface area (BSA) between 0.33 and 0.5 m(2) We present the first clinical experience from the early product surveillance (EPS) of the new EXCOR 15-ml blood pump...

Lumbar disc disease occurs mainly in the adult population. A disc prolapse in the paediatric population is very rare. Cauda equine syndrome resulting from compression of the cauda equina is a rare syndrome and is one of the few spinal surgical emergencies. Here we present a 13-year-old boy with pain in the lumbar region radiating bilaterally to the lower limbs, with asymmetrical weakness of lower the limbs, perianal hypoaesthesia and urinary retention. MRI of lumbar spine confirmed disc protrusion at the L3-L4 level with severe spinal canal stenosis...

: The need for performing clinical trials to develop well-studied and appropriate medicines for inherited neurometabolic disease patients faces ethical concerns mainly raising from four aspects: the diseases are rare; include young and very young patients; the neurological impairment may compromise the capability to provide 'consent'; and the genetic nature of the disease leads to further ethical implications. This work is intended to identify the ethical provisions applicable to clinical research involving these patients and to evaluate if these cover the ethical issues...

The latest research data emphasize the interaction between the nervous and the immune systems. It has been demonstrated that the central nervous system (CNS) can be involved secondarily due to blood brain barrier (BBB) disruption via pro-inflammatory cytokines released in allergy. More recently it was demonstrated that the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) could also be equally involved in models of peripheral inflammation such as food allergy; although this last clinical presentation has rarely been described...

Gross motor dysfunction is considered as the most challenging problem in cerebral palsy (CP). It is proven that improvement of gross motor function could reduce CP-related disabilities and provide better quality of life in this group of patients. Therefore, the aim of this trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of cerebrolysin (CBL) on gross motor function of children with CP who are undergoing treatment. In this clinical trial study, paediatric patients aged 18-75 months with spastic diplegic or quadriplegic cerebral palsy, who were under rehabilitation therapy, were selected and randomly allocated in control and CBL groups...

OBJECTIVE: Stress, pain, injury, and psychological trauma all induce arousal-mediated changes in brain network organization. The associated, high level of arousal may disrupt motor-sensory processing and result in aberrant patterns of motor function, including functional neurological symptoms. We used the auditory oddball paradigm to assess cortical arousal in children and adolescents with functional neurological symptom disorder. METHOD: Electroencephalogram (EEG) data was collected in fifty-seven children and adolescents (41 girls; 16 boys, aged 8...

BACKGROUND: The optimum timing of surgery and the approach that should be used during congenital cataract surgery are controversial and present challenges for paediatric cataract surgeons in China. The aim of this study was to compare visual prognoses and postoperative adverse effects of paediatric cataract surgery done at different times and using different surgical approaches. METHODS: In this prospective, randomised controlled trial, we recruited Chinese patients aged 3 months or younger who were diagnosed with bilateral diffuse or total cataracts, but who did not have coexisting ocular, systemic or neurological diseases...

AIM: There are few reports on the tolerability and efficacy of perampanel, a new antiepileptic drug with a novel mechanism of action, in children and adolescents. We aimed to describe our experience with perampanel add-on and mono-therapy in children with refractory epilepsy. METHOD: Computerized medical records of children treated with perampanel in the paediatric neurology clinic from December 2012 to October 2015 were reviewed. RESULTS: Twenty-four children treated with perampanel (15 females, 9 males) aged 1 year 6 months to 17 years (mean 10y, standard deviation [SD] 4y 5mo) were identified...

AIM: Febrile seizures (FS) involve 2-5% of the paediatric population, among which Complex FS (CFS) account for one third of accesses for FS in Emergency Departments (EDs). The aim of our study was to define the epidemiology, the clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic approach to FS and CFSs in the Italian EDs. METHODS: A multicenter prospective observational study was performed between April 2014 and March 2015. Patients between 1 and 60 months of age, randomly accessing to ED for ongoing FS or reported FS at home were included...

INTRODUCTION: Measures of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) are considered to be more comprehensive in health outcome assessments than scales assessing only the degree of neurological deficit. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate HRQOL and its correlates among adolescents with multiple sclerosis (MS) in Serbia. METHODS: Demographic, clinical, and patient-reported outcome data were collected for 21 adolescents with MS, aged 14-18 years...

We report 59 cases of severe paediatric conditions linked with enterovirus (EV)-A71 and EV-D68 in France between May and October 2016. Fifty-two children had severe neurological symptoms. EV sequence-based typing for 42 cases revealed EV-A71 in 21 (18 subgenotype C1, detected for the first time in France) and EV-D68 in eight. Clinicians should be encouraged to obtain stool and respiratory specimens from patients presenting with severe neurological disorders for EV detection and characterisation.
