Tammy E Bracewell
This study examines the correlation between the consistency in a child's sexual abuse outcry and the prosecutorial decision to accept or reject cases of child sexual abuse. Case-specific information was obtained from one Texas Children's Advocacy Center on all cases from 2010 to 2013. After the needed deletion, the total number of cases included in the analysis was 309. An outcry was defined as a sexual abuse disclosure. Consistency was measured at both the forensic interview and the sexual assault exam. Logistic regression was used to evaluate whether a correlation existed between disclosure and prosecutorial decisions...

Northern pygmy mice from 2 localities in East Central Texas, USA, had proliferative epidermal lesions on the tail and feet. Electron microscopy of lesion tissue revealed poxvirus. Phylogenetic analyses indicated the virus differed 35% from its closest relatives, the Chordopoxvirinae. Future research is needed to determine whether this virus could affect human health.

REVIEW
J M Lieb, F J Ahlhelm
CLINICAL ISSUE: Agenesis of the corpus callosum is reported to have an incidence of about 1:4000 live births. In 30-45% of cases, genetic etiologies can be identified, e. g., 10% chromosomal anomalies and 20-35% genetic syndromes. Environmental factors like fetal alcohol syndrome are also known to be prone to callosal agenesis. Callosal agenesis can be complete or partial and can be isolated or associated with other central nervous system (CNS) anomalies (e. g., cortical developmental disorders, callosal lipoma, intracranial cysts) or extra-CNS anomalies (e...

The Annual San Antonio Symposium was held on 5-9, December, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas, USA (1). As expected, many new studies were presented for the first time at the sessions. The unofficial opening lecture in my point of view was given on locoregional recurrence by Monica Morrow from MSKCC, New York. As always, Morrow's lecture on "Challenges in the surgical management of locoregional recurrence" attracted great interest. The other prominent conferences were given on "Individualizing Management of the Axillary Nodes" by Tari A...

: media-1vid110.1542/5754332185001PEDS-VA_2017-2312 Video Abstract OBJECTIVES: To prevent human papillomavirus (HPV)-related cancers, providers must effectively communicate with HPV vaccine-hesitant parents. Here, we developed a typology characterizing parent-provider communication around HPV vaccine hesitancy. METHODS: We audio-recorded 43 visits with unvaccinated adolescents at 6 pediatric clinics in Dallas, Texas in which parents were undecided about HPV vaccination. We qualitatively coded how parents verbally expressed hesitancy (assertive response, asking a question, or expressing concern) and whether providers responded with acquiescence (agree to defer vaccination) and/or persistence (continue discussion)...

It is appropriate that we begin the clinical part of this conference with a discussion of acquired monosaccharide intolerance. This disease is the most severe form of carbohydrate malabsorption and maldigestion that can afflict an infant. The following article describes the pathophysiology of the disease, as well as its treatment, much of which was based on studies done by the Section of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Baylor College of Medicine. Acquired monosaccharide intolerance has almost disappeared from the United States but remains a problem in the developing world where it is included as part of the diagnosis of environmental enteropathy...

BACKGROUND: Abortion is a common medical procedure, yet its availability has become more limited across the United States over the past decade. Women who do not know where to go for abortion care may use the internet to find abortion facility information, and there appears to be more online searches for abortion in states with more restrictive abortion laws. While previous studies have examined the distances women must travel to reach an abortion provider, to our knowledge no studies have used a systematic online search to document the geographic locations and services of abortion facilities...

A new carboxylic acid-functionalized "Texas-sized" molecular box TxSB-CO2H has been prepared by combining two separate build-ing blocks via an iodide-catalyzed macrocyclization reaction. A single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis revealed a paired "clip-like" dimer in the solid state. Concentration-dependent behavior is seen for samples of TxSB-CO2H as prepared, as inferred from 1H NMR spectroscopic studies carried out in DMSO-d6. However, in the presence of excess acid (1% by weight of deuterated trifluo-racetic acid; TFA-d1), little evidence of aggregation is seen in DMSO-d6 except at the highest accessible concentrations...

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Houston, Texas on 25 August 2017, the psychological and physical effects of which are still unknown. We assessed hurricane exposure and the immediate mental health needs of the population to define public health priorities for a larger epidemiological study. Convenience sampling was used to recruit participants ( n = 41) from the greater Houston area aged ≥18 years. Participants completed a questionnaire about demographics, hurricane exposures, and physical/mental health...

Background: An aging population and a high incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) in patients over the age of 80 make it important to understand survival times, hazard ratios and prognostic factors in this group. A better understanding of these factors will help clinicians determine appropriate therapeutic strategies for such patients, including when more aggressive treatment strategies may be preferred to palliative treatment. Methods: A retrospective analysis of 619 CRC patients of ≥80 years of age from 1991-2010 at Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple, Texas...

BACKGROUND: It is known that women generally have worse mortality outcomes than men with regards to ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. However, less is known about contemporary gender differences in non-STEMI acute coronary syndrome, particularly those presenting to emergency departments within a regionalized system of care with standardized protocols. METHODS: Retrospective registry data from 2010 to 2016 were examined from the North Texas Mission: Lifeline system of care, representing 33 hospitals around the Dallas Texas metropolitan area...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the association of furosemide therapy with the incidence of bone fractures in children with congenital heart disease. STUDY DESIGN: We conducted a retrospective cohort study with data extracted from the 2008-2014 Texas Medicaid databases. Pediatric patients aged <12 years diagnosed with congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy, or heart failure were included. Patients taking furosemide were categorized into a furosemide-adherent group (medication possession ratio of ≥70%), and a furosemide-nonadherent group (medication possession ratio of <70%)...

Background: Inherited BRCA gene mutations (pathogenic variants) cause 10% of breast cancers. BRCA pathogenic variants predispose carriers to triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC); around 30% of patients with TNBC carry BRCA pathogenic variants. The 2018 NCCN Guidelines for Genetic/Familial High-Risk Assessment: Breast and Ovarian recommend genetic counseling referrals for patients with TNBC diagnosed at age ≤60 years. This study sought to describe genetic counseling referral patterns among long-term TNBC survivors at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center...
