AbstractPurpose of ReviewBreastfeeding has been studied for its multiple benefits to both, the infant and the mother. This review aims to expose the benefits of breastfeeding during acute infections, the main cause of morbidity in infants.Recent FindingsBreastfeeding has the ability to modify the infant ’s microbiome, and consequently its immune system. It also protects against viral infections mainly due to oligosaccharides. The longer the duration of breastfeeding, the greater the benefits (benefits have been observed up to 4 years after).SummaryIt has been shown that breastfeeding provides greater benefits wh...

Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a condition with a significant impact on patient's quality of life. Sex differences in the prevalence and clinical presentation of rhinitis have been reported in multiple studies. Additionally, it has comorbidities with asthma, atopic dermatitis, rhinosinusitis, otitis media, anosmia, nasal polyps and lower airway infection. As a complex phenotype, AR is affected by both genetic and environmental factors. Recent literature has focused on difference in the genomic architecture of asthma for the two sexes by considering gene-sex interaction, whereas AR has been neglected.

Eosinophilic otitis media (EOM), which is characterized by the accumulation of eosinophils in middle ear effusion and the middle ear mucosa, is a refractory type of otitis media that is often associated with asthma. Although an early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are necessary to prevent the progression of hearing loss in patients with EOM, there are currently no well-established treatments for this condition. We treated a 60-year-old male patient with asthma and EOM. The patient ’s asthma was poorly controlled, despite the use of high-dose inhaled corticosteroids, long-acting beta-agonist treatment, and the re...

AbstractTobacco smoke, active or passive exposure was the major cause of preventable morbidity and mortality in the world during twentieth century and will continue to be the same in the twenty-first century also if the current trends continue. Both active and passive smoking are having significance in relation to child health. Exposure starts antenatally from placenta to the fetus and later phases through passive exposure to experimental and regular smoking and ultimately addiction and habitual smoking. Evidences are in favour of causal relationship with intrauterine growth restriction, sudden infant death syndrome, decre...

CONCLUSION: The co-presence of nasal polyps and resistant otitis media with effusion should raise the possibility of eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis. PMID: 29310745 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present the case of a 13-month-old, nonconsanguineous, Hispanic boy with rectal abscesses and perianal fistulae beginning at 2 months of age. At the time of initial consultation, he had undergone 11 prior operations for abscess drainage. His infectious history was notable for recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, acute otitis media, chronic diarrhea, and an episode of thrush that resolved with oral nystatin at 2 months of age. He did not have a history of pneumonia, growth failure, or signs of endocrinopathy.

Conclusions: These results suggest that intensive anti-inflammatory treatment in asthma could be valuable not only for prevention of worsening asthma but also for inhibition of progression of EOM.
