BOSTON (CBS) – In April 2018, a Beverly couple tragically lost their son. As Jonathan Ersing’s parents grieve, they have found a unique way to remain close to him. “He was just one of those people who just lit up a room,” his mother, Joanne, remembers. Jonathan had severe autism and in April, he accidentally choked on his food and went into cardiac arrest. After multiple attempts to resuscitate him, Jonathan was pronounced brain dead. He was 25 years old. Jonathan Ersing (Courtesy Photo) While Jonathan was losing his life, Sabrina Dahoda of upstate New York was on the brink of losing hers. The 31-ye...

This retrospective study aimed to specify the critical period for atypical brain development in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) using prenatal and postnatal head growth parameters. The sample consisted of 80 Caucasian, unrelated, idiopathic patients with ASD born after 1995. Fetal ultrasound parameters (head circumference [HC], abdominal circumference, and femur length) were obtained during the second and third trimesters of gestation. HC at birth and postnatal parameters at 12 and 24 months of age were also collected. Head overgrowth, assessed by HC, was highlighted during the second (20 –26 weeks of...

When Nichelle Obar learned she was pregnant with her second child last year, she never expected that her pregnancy, or her baby, would make history. But when the 40-year-old food-and-beverage coordinator from Hawaii and her fiancé Christopher Constantino went to their 18-week ultrasound, they learned something was wrong. The heart was larger than it should have been, and there was evidence that fluid was starting to build up around the organ as well. Both were signs that the fetus was working extra hard to pump blood to its fast-growing body and that its heart was starting to fail. Obar’s doctor knew what coul...

ConclusionsOur data revealed multiple SEPCs in normal-term neonates as a risk factor for neurobehavioral outcome, particularly in ADHD and ASD. Simultaneously, the utility of CUS examination as a health examination item for neonates was confirmed.

CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that a diagnosis of confirmed isolated mild ventriculomegaly was associated with an increased risk of neurodevelopmental disorders compared to the reference population, but the absolute risk was low and there were no cases of intellectual disability or cerebral palsy.

Publication date: September 2018Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral Reviews, Volume 92Author(s): Francesca Fulceri, Andrea Guzzetta, Argyro Athanasiadou, Laura Iaconianni, Maria Luisa ScattoniAbstractThere is a growing research interest on the antenatal features of children with neurodevelopmental disorders. Indeed, it has been proved that the neurodevelopment is, at least partly, affected by processes occurring in fetal life and that the early neurodevelopmental disorders identification is essential to optimize long-term outcomes.This systematic review aims to summarize findings on antenatal ultrasound data, which are...

To the Editor The article “Association of Prenatal Ultrasonography and Autism Spectrum Disorder” by Rosman et al reports “significantly greater mean depth of ultrasonographic penetration in the ASD [autism spectrum disorder] group compared with the developmental delay group in the first trimester and compared with the typical development group in the first and second trimesters. Further research is needed to determine whether other variables of ultrasound exposure also have adverse effects on the developing fetus.” These words, which appear in the conclusion of the abstract, do not accurately reflec...
