Childhood Motor Function, Health Related Quality of Life and Social Functioning among Emerging Adults Born at Term or Extremely Low Birth Weight

AbstractPoor motor coordination is associated with reduced academic performance, health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and social functioning in general population samples of children. Even though childhood motor problems are often chronic, little is known about how they affect educational, health, and social domains beyond adolescence. Further, the status of these associations in individuals known to be at high risk for poor motor coordination (e.g., those born preterm) is not known. The purpose of this study was to examine associations between childhood motor coordination and socioeconomic outcomes, HRQoL, and social functioning at 22 –26 years of age in a cohort of individuals born at normal birth weight (NBW,> 2500  g;N = 83) or extremely low birth weight (ELBW,

ConclusionsOur results reinforce the distinct orofacial features of ERS, which are the clue for kidney examination and genetic testing. Here we report the largest series of patients with ERS of the same population, and describe, for the first time, a founder mutation for FAM20A gene. FAPEMIG, FAPESP, CAPES.

The 22 q11.2 deletion syndrome, also known as DiGeorge syndrome, is the subject of the loss of a submicroscopic segment of DNA in the 22 q11.2 region. It presents a great variability of clinical characteristics in affected individuals. Among the clinical manifestations are fissure of the palate, nasal speech, cardiovascular problems, and dysmorphic facial features. This case report describes a 15-year-old girl, clinically diagnosed as having DiGeorge syndrome, who attended a dental service for patients with special needs presenting with malocclusion, difficulty in chewing, and suspected heart disease.

The objective is to report a 12-year-old male pediatric dental patient who is attended in the dental care service for patients with special needs. He was a heart patient and a carrier of Down syndrome, presenting aggressiveness and endurance on the dental attendance. His problem was a toothache; however, the clinical examination verified mixed dentition, periodontal disease, high incidence of dental caries, malocclusion, staining on teeth, mouth breathing, narrow palate, and macroglossia.

CONCLUSION: In patients with compressive cervical myelopathy, leptomeningeal contrast enhancement, a T2-weighted hypersignal exceeding the compression level on MRI, and the presence of extraneurological symptoms should point to inflammatory disease. These rare manifestations may be the first symptoms of sarcoidosis and should be recognized to avoid harmful surgical procedures and to provide appropriate medical treatment.

In this study, 226 of 250 invited patients through special needs schools, the National Down Syndrome Society, and relevant nonprofit organizations were included. In Noor Eye Hospital, the patients underwent a complete eye examination by a general ophthalmologist and suspect cases were reexamined by a sub-specialist. Examinations included ocular alignment, conjunctiva, eyelid, lacrimal system, cornea, iris, and lens assessment.Results: Mean age of participants was 16.05 ± 4.82 years and 53.0% were male. The most common ocular abnormalities were blepharitis (81.9%, 95% CI:78.0 to 85.3), lens opacity (37...

DiscussionResults of the selected studies are only partially comparable or generalizable because of differences in study design. They have a risk for potential biases, although they provide (if analyzed) readily available prognostic factors, easy to apply in clinical practice. Prospective, population-based studies with EEG-defined NS are warranted in order to produce evidence-based guidance for management of preterm newborns with seizures.
