PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between three major allergic diseases, asthma, allergic rhinitis (AR), and atopic dermatitis (AD), and psychological and behavioural problems in preschoolers based on a community survey. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was conducted using a modified International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood questionnaire to determine the prevalence of symptoms and diagnosed allergic diseases, and a Korean version of the Child Behaviour Checklist to assess internalizing, externalizing, and sleep problems among 780 preschoolers...

A 17-year-old male with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder was admitted to the hospital with generalized weakness. Vital signs and physical examination were normal. Laboratory data were notable for a creatinine of 4.5 mg/dL (baseline 0.6 mg/dL), estimated glomerular filtration rate of 18 ml/min/1.73 m² and hemoglobin 10 g/dL. Urinalysis revealed only 30 mg/dL protein. Serology for autoimmune workup was negative. Renal ultrasound was normal. Kidney biopsy showed noncaseating granulomas and acute on chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) with lymphocytes, macrophages, plasma cells and no eosinophils...

We describe here the case of an adolescent who developed eosinophilic hepatitis during treatment for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder with lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (Vyvanse [Shire US Inc, Wayne, PA]). A 14-year-old boy presented to his primary care provider with abdominal pain and worsening jaundice. A diagnosis of hepatitis was made with biochemical markers, but evaluation failed to provide an etiology. Worsening hepatitis prompted hospitalization and initiation of steroids for presumed autoimmune hepatitis...

BACKGROUND: Food allergy (FA) is characterized by an abnormal immunologic reactivity to food proteins. The gastro-intestinal tract serves not only a nutritive function but also is a major immunologic organ. Although previously thought to be triggered primarily by an IgE-mediated mechanism of injury, considerable evidence now suggests that non-IgE mechanisms may also be involved in the pathogenesis of FA. OBJECTIVE: To review the immunologic disturbances that occur in FA and to correlate these with the clinical manifestations expressed in affected target organs based upon a classification of IgE and non-IgE mechanisms...

Methylphenidate hydrochloride is a drug used in the treatment of narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders. This drug was nominated for study by the Food and Drug Administration and the National Cancer Institute because of its widespread use in human medicine and because of lack of data on its potential carcinogenicity. Oral administration is the most common route of human exposure. Toxicology and carcinogenicity studies were conducted by administering methylphenidate hydrochloride (USP grade) ad libitum in feed to groups of male and female F344/N rats and B6C3F1, mice for 14 days, 13 weeks, or 2 years...
