Group B streptococcus causes infections in woman during pregnancy and confinement, perinatal infections in newborns related to mothers carrier-state and in adults, mostly in the elderly, with one or more predisposing to infections conditions. Diabetes mellitus is the most common underlying condition. The aim of the study was to determine the frequency of GBS occurrence and GBS antibiotic susceptibility in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus. In years 2000--2002 occurrence of GBS in some clinical materials (urine, swabs from pharynx and urogenital tract) taken from 161 diabetics: 90 girls and 71 boys, hospitalized for newly diagnosed diabetes or insufficient metabolic control/longer duration of diabetes and 37 children with hypostatura (control group) aged from 5-17 years, was examined...

The aim of this work is an analysis of the process of growth and an assessment of the physical fitness of children and youths with short stature. The material contains results of a long-term investigation of the growth of boys and girls with the diagnosis: simple body height deficiency (hypostatura simplex). The investigation was carried out in Swietokrzyskie Province, Poland, in the years 1980-1997. It comprised 471 individuals: 143 girls aged 5-18 years and 328 boys aged 5-19 years. A different degree of the skeleton age is connected with a different dynamic of growth of short-stature girls and boys...

The material of normal 199 Warsaw children with hypostatura previously elaborated from the point of view of morphological traits and biological maturity are analysed at present from the point of view of sexual dimorphism. Dimorphic values of the following traits were tested: body height, trunk length, lower extremity length, biacromial diameter, biiliac diameter, chest breadth, chest depth, distal femoral epiph., chest circumference, thigh circumference, arm circumference, subscapular skinfold and body weight...

On the empirical data of body height of 75 healthy short stature boys, the comparison using Roche, Weiner and Thiessen (RWT) method for predicting adult stature was conducted. There are no significant differences between real and predicted body height, since body height of normal short boys aged 18-19 years was in agreement with the stature predicted retrospectively in the age 10-15 years. American RWT method for predicting final adult stature may be used for Polish boys with hypostatura simplex.

An auxological investigation involved 199 children with short stature ( hypostatura simplex) in preschool and school age. The analysis of the material showed that eight anthropometrical patterns and five somatometric indices, with the evaluation of the level of skeletal maturity, were all lower in children under study in comparison to the mean growth standard for Warsaw children. In all features differences were statistically significant. The biggest differences however, were found in the length of the upper extremities and the trunk...
