The disease is primarily caused by a deficiency in the enzyme arylsulfatase A (ASA), which is encoded by the ARSA gene. A total of 254 mutations have been reported in different populations. The present study aimed to detect causative gene mutations in an atypical case presenting with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder through whole-exome sequencing. Of note, the patient's mother is from a consanguineous family. Compound heterozygous variants...

Abstract The goals of the health maintenance visit in school-aged children (five to 12 years) are promoting health, detecting disease, and counseling to prevent injury and future health problems. During the visit, the physician should address patient and parent/caregiver concerns and ask about emergency department or hospital care since the last visit; lifestyle habits (diet, physical activity, daily screen time, secondhand smoke exposure, hours of sleep per night, dental care, safety habits); and school performance. Poor school performance may indicate problems such as learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyp...

The broadening of the concept of bipolar disorder in youth has been much more controversial. Previous research has established that many adults with bipolar d...
