BACKGROUND: Rosai-Dorfman disease was commonly characterized as massive, painless, bilateral, symmetric cervical lymphadenopathy, with fever, leukocytosis, and elevated sedimentation rate. However, soft tissue Rosai-Dorfman disease (STRDD) is a rare benign tumor. METHODS: We hereby present 1 case of a 17-month-old girl, an isolated subcutaneous mass was detected on her right forearm, and no signs of pain, swelling, or erythema were observed at the site. RESULTS: The patient underwent an excisional biopsy for the mass...

Aim Horner syndrome corresponds to the clinical triad of miosis, ptosis, and facial anhidrosis. These symptoms are related to injury of the oculosympathetic chain. In children, Horner syndrome is classified as congenital or acquired. While the diagnosis is made through clinical examination, there is some debate regarding the use of imaging modalities and the extent of anatomical coverage required. Methods Here, we describe two cases of children with acute Horner syndrome. We then review the literature about the different etiology and discuss the interest of some investigations...

The incidence of retro-parapharyngeal localization of cervical adenitis due to non-tuberculous mycobacteria is very rare. We present a case of an 18-months-old child with an involvement of parapharyngeal and retropharyngeal areas, right parotid and submandibular regions by atypical mycobacteriosis in the CT and MRI scan. The masses were surgically removed and the frozen-section histological exam upheld their atypical mycobacterial origin.

Study Design Case report. Objective We report the youngest child diagnosed with upper cervical osteoblastoma and the first case operated on with our novel surgical approach. Methods Our patient underwent a two-stage surgery. During the first operation via a posterior approach, a subtotal resection of a C2 bony mass was performed. C3 was also subtotally resected due to tumor extension. Posterior fixation of C1-C5 was performed by C1 sublaminar hooks and C4 and C5 lateral mass screws. Ten days later, a total resection of the residual bony mass was performed through an anterior approach (between the sternocleidomastoid muscle and carotid sheath)...

BACKGROUND: Randomized clinical trials have shown the 9-valent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to be highly effective against types 31/33/45/52/58 compared with the 4-valent. Evidence on the added health and economic benefit of the 9-valent is required for policy decisions. We compare population-level effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of 9- and 4-valent HPV vaccination in the United States. METHODS: We used a multitype individual-based transmission-dynamic model of HPV infection and disease (anogenital warts and cervical, anogenital, and oropharyngeal cancers), 3% discount rate, and societal perspective...

BACKGROUND: Chiari I malformation (CM-I) is defined by cerebellar tonsillar herniation through the foramen magnum. Patients typically present with chronic complaints, including headache, dizziness, and numbness, although there are few reports in the literature of pediatric patients presenting acutely with neurological deficit caused by CM-I. We report a child who presented acutely with hemiparesis and magnetic resonance imaging findings consistent with CM-I and spinal cord edema. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 3-year old boy with normal development presented with difficulty walking and increased drooling...

We report herein on a case of ectopic cervical thymus in a 5-year-old boy and the literature is reviewed. Swelling of the right neck was seen in the patient in his newborn period and it was diagnosed as cystic disease of the neck in a previous hospital at 4 months of age. Ultrasonography (US) and MRI revealed a cervical tumor consisting of a solid component in our hospital, and histopathologic examination showed no evidence of malignancy. The lesion revealed almost no change in size but showed a mosaic pattern on US, whereon the parents agreed to the removal of the tumor...

Very few effective field methods are available for accurate, non-invasive estimation of skeletal muscle volume (SMV) and mass in children. We aimed to develop regression-based prediction equations for SMV, using ultrasonography, in Japanese prepubertal children, and to assess the validity of these equations. In total, 145 healthy Japanese prepubertal children aged 6-12 years were randomly divided into two groups: the model development group (sixty boys, thirty-seven girls) and the validation group (twenty-nine boys, nineteen girls)...

Since the cancer incidence rate is generally very low in individuals aged 10 to 40 years, social concern for cancer prevention education for schoolchildren is likely to be insufficient in Japan.This paper presents epidemiological evidence to stress the importance of preferable health perceptions and behaviors in schoolchildren for the prevention of tobacco-related cancer, abnormal body mass index-related cancer, and cervical cancer.To improve the effectiveness of cancer education for schoolchildren, it is important to monitor their health perceptions and behaviors at least until junior high school...

REVIEW
Yu Tang, Song Li, Jintao Qu, Yue Zhou, Jianru Xiao
Malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT) is a highly malignant and aggressive tumor associated with the kidney that is mainly seen in children under 5 years old, resulting in a rapid fatal outcome. MRT invasion of the cervical vertebra is an extremely rare form of this malignancy. This study presents a case of MRT involving the C4 vertebra and its appendix. A 13-year-old girl was found to have vague neck pain and a mass in the left neck area of the mid-cervical spine. Percutaneous needle biopsy was performed and the histological and immunohistochemical analysis pointed towards a rhabdoid tumor...

The abrupt onset of respiratory failure secondary to asthma, known as acute asphyxial asthma (AAA) in adults, is uncommonly reported in children. Here, we report a case of a child with the acute onset of respiratory failure consistent with AAA complicated by the finding of a neck mass during resuscitation. This 11-year-old boy with a history of asthma initially presented in respiratory failure with altered mental status after the complaint of difficulty in breathing minutes before collapsing at home. Initially, his respiratory failure was thought to be secondary to status asthmaticus, and treatment was initiated accordingly...
