Severe gastrointestinal bleeding in newborn period is a serious but uncommon phenomenon that has a broad differential diagnosis. Primary duodenal ulcers are rare in children but stress induced ulceration in stomach occurs more often in neonatal period due to birth asphyxia, prolonged labour, cesarean deliveries, instrumentations, respiratory distress syndrome and sepsis. These present as acute onset of gastrointestinal bleeding commonly as altered gastric aspirate, hematemesis or malena. We report a case of a neonate with stress induced gastric bleeding following birth asphyxia who presented with massive gastrointestinal bleed manifesting as hematemesis and massive rectal bleeding...

Dear Editor, Erythema multiforme is considered an acute skin condition, characterized by a self-limiting and sometimes recurrent course. It is regarded as a type IV hypersensitivity reaction associated with certain infections, medications, and other various triggers. Allergic contact dermatitis is in turn a delayed type of induced allergy as a result of cutaneous contact with a specific allergen to which the patient develops specific sensitivity. This type of cutaneous reaction is associated with inflammation manifesting with erythema, edema, and vesicles...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Symphysis-fundal-height (SFH) could be prove useful for the management of labour. This study aims to assess the behaviour of induced labours in relationship with SFH values. METHODS: Prospective observational study in a sample of 158 women underwent induction with intravaginal dinoprostone for different indications. SFH, SFH corrected for station, gestational age and parity were considered independent variables in multivariable models. Vaginal delivery, operative vaginal delivery, Cesarean section, Cesarean section for dystocia, Cesarean section for cardiotochographyc abnormalities, oxytocin infusion (for potentiating labour), need of Kristeller's maneuvre, epidural anesthesia (on demand), episiotomy, time from the first dose of dinoprostone to delivery, and time of active phase of labour were considered dependent variables in multivariable models...

Cardiac arrest in pregnancy is a devastating complication, but one which is difficult to study because of its low prevalence. Large healthcare utilization databases provide ample statistical power to analyze this rare outcome, but lack clinical detail, and cannot provide information about key questions, such as the timing of arrest relative to delivery, the cause of the arrest as determined by clinicians, and the impact of the location of arrest and time to perimortem cesarean delivery on survival. The UKOSS Cardiac Arrest in Pregnancy Study (CAPS), published in this month's issue of the journal, addresses all of these questions and more...

BACKGROUND: Mother-infant separation post birth is common. In standard hospital care, newborn infants are held wrapped or dressed in their mother's arms, placed in open cribs or under radiant warmers. Skin-to-skin contact (SSC) begins ideally at birth and should last continually until the end of the first breastfeeding. SSC involves placing the dried, naked baby prone on the mother's bare chest, often covered with a warm blanket. According to mammalian neuroscience, the intimate contact inherent in this place (habitat) evokes neuro-behaviors ensuring fulfillment of basic biological needs...

Congenital insensitivity to pain is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by varying degrees of autonomic dysfunction and sensory loss, including nociceptive hyposensitivity. It is this autonomic dysfunction that makes both general and neuraxial anesthesia challenging. Testing the block during neuraxial anesthesia may be difficult and the patient may be prone to hypotension and bradycardia. This case report describes the anesthetic management of a parturient with congenital insensitivity to pain presenting for cesarean delivery...

INTRODUCTION: Retained surgical sponge or other items in patients' bodies happens more frequently than is reported. Healthcare personnel can forget to remove textile material or instruments during complicated, extended, or emergency surgery. In addition, changes in the operating team can influence the occurrence of such errors. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present a case with a symptomatic gossypiboma nine years after a previous cesarean section. A 34-year-old woman was admitted to the emergency room having experienced abdominal pain and fever for the previous month...

INTRODUCTION: Fetal growth charts are often used in clinical practice. It is important to understand the usefulness and the pitfalls associated with these tools. Without validation, it is difficult to ascertain if the cutoffs we intend are the ones we actually select. We developed a national standard for birthweight (BW) and compared it with other published reference values. STUDY DESIGN: Multicenter retrospective study. We collected data on live births, including first trimester ultrasound and pathology, from 23 to 42 weeks' gestational age (GA)...

INTRODUCTION: In fetuses who are predicted to be at risk of catastrophic airway obstruction at delivery, the ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedure is useful for securing the fetal airway while maintaining fetal oxygenation via placental circulation. Factors, including poor posture of the fetus and physician, narrow visual field, and issues of contamination in the aseptic surgical field, make fetal intubation during the EXIT procedure difficult. Herein, we report our experience of the usefulness of the GlideScope video laryngoscope (GVL) for intubation during the EXIT procedure...

Ectopic molar pregnancy is extremely rare, and preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Our literature search found only one report of molar pregnancy diagnosed preoperatively. Moreover, there is no English literature depicting magnetic resonance image (MRI) findings of ectopic molar pregnancy. We report a case of ectopic molar pregnancy preoperatively diagnosed using MRI. A literature review of 31 cases of ectopic molar pregnancy demonstrated that lesions have been found in the fallopian tube (19 cases, 61%), ovary (5 cases, 16%), cornu (3 cases, 10%), peritoneum (2 cases, 6%), uterine cervix (1 case, 3%), and cesarean scar (1 case, 3%)...
