The 22q11.2 microdeletion is the most common deletion syndrome, with a prevalence of 1/4000-1/6000 among newborn infants and a wide phenotypic variability. The diagnosis of the 22q11.2 microdeletion is made through cytogenetics or fuorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). The objectives of this article were to describe the clinical features of 32 patients with 22q11.2 microdeletion and the fndings of other chromosomal abnormalities and genetic syndromes in phenotypically similar patients. This series was made up of 268 patients with clinical criteria supporting the diagnostic suspicion attended at the Hospital de Niños and Hospital Privado, of Córdoba, between March 1st, 2004 and August 31st, 2011...

The ingestion of foreign bodies (EC) is a problem commonly seen by pediatricians and emergency physicians. The intake is almost always accidental and most common objects are coins, pieces of toys, jewelry or batteries. The button batteries are the most common, in which case is important early diagnosis and removal. The cylindrical battery ingestion is very rare, are typically alkaline manganese or nickel-cadmium (rechargeable) and when ingested they can cause toxic and corrosive damage. Such damage may occur as a result of the effect of acid gastric contents sustained over a period of days or weeks...

BACKGROUND: The choice of the imaging modality (transthoracic [TTE] vs. transesophageal echocardiography [TEE]) for the diagnosis of infective endocarditis (IE) depends on different variables. Aim of the present study is to provide updated data on the diagnostic sensitivity and the clinical usefulness of TTE vs. TEE from the Italian Registry on IE (RIEI). METHODS: The RIEI has enrolled consecutive cases of IE in every participating centre, evaluating diagnostic and therapeutic data from a real world practice perspective...

Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn is defined as the failure of the normal circulatory transition that occurs after birth. It is a syndrome characterized by marked pulmonary hypertension that causes hypoxemia and right-to-left extra-pulmonary shunting of blood. In the treatment of persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, the goal is to increase oxygen flow to the baby's organs to prevent serious health problems. Treatment may include medication, mechanical ventilation and respiratory therapy...

Acute leukemia is the most common malignancy in children, and accounts for nearly 35% of all childhood cancers. Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) constitutes about 20% of acute leukemias. Initially, treatment of AML involves the immediate management of emergencies associated as hyperleukocytosis, tumor lysis syndrome, hemorrhages and infections. Therefore we performed a retrospective, descriptive and transversal study to investigate the drugs used in patients with AML who were admitted at the Hospital del Niño DIF from 2007 to 2008...
