Conclusions: First UTI in a group of Thai children occurred in approximately equal proportion in boys and girls but boys were younger at diagnosis. Kidney and urinary tract anomalies were detected in half of the children.Urol Int

ChungAbstractObjective: The purpose of the study is to investigate the risk of preventable hospitalization among patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).Methods: We identified 11,852 incident RA patients and 59,260 age-, sex-, and index year-matched controls from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Database. Index date was the RA diagnosis date for cases, which was assigned to their matched controls. The odds ratios (OR) of preventable hospitalizations between RA patients...

CONCLUSIONS: CIC can be deferred until continence in select infants with a low risk of significant DMSA abnormality. However, immediate initiation of CIC upon recognition of risk factors is recommended as this was associated with fewer DMSA abnormalities than delaying CIC. Recommendations for expectantly-managed patients include close follow-up, serial US and UD, and prompt initiation of CIC upon recognition of new hydronephrosis, reflux, elevated storage pressures, or febrile UTIs.

This study was enrolled children aged between 2 and 36 months, following-up with the diagnosis of recurrent UTI. All children had ultrasonography (USG) and dimercaptosuccinic acid scanning, 39 of them had underwent on voiding cystourethrography. There were 133 children (87 girls, 46 boys) with the mean age of 32.82 ± 38.10 months included into the study. Forty-three kidney units were normal in ultrasonogram of which seven units had reflux whereas among 35 units with hydronephrosis 22 units had reflux. Sensitivity and specificity presence of hydronephrosis in ultrasonogram for prediction of reflux was 7...

Discussion Appendicitis results from a closed loop obstruction of a blind-ending tubular structure arising from the cecum. It is a common cause of abdominal pain. It is the most frequent condition leading to emergent abdominal surgery in pediatrics. The combination of obstruction, edema, bacterial overgrowth, increased inflammatory process and increased intraluminal pressure leads to abdominal pain and possibly perforation. Appendicitis occurs in all age groups but is rare in neonates. The peak age is 6-10 years old. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory disease of the uterus, fallopian tubes and adjacent p...

Abstract AimTo determine the nature of primary vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and the association of VUR with hydronephrosis and renal damage. MethodsThe medical records of children ≤ 15 years diagnosed with VUR, attending the Department of Pediatrics, Prince of Songkla University, Thailand between 1987 and 2013 were reviewed. Renal ultrasound and technetium‐99m dimercaptosuccinic acid renal scan (DMSA) results were examined to determine the severity of hydronephrosis and renal damage, respectively. ResultsThere were 177 boys and 211 girls. 350 (90.2%) were diagnosed following urinary tract infection (UTI). The median (I...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicate that UTI varies with age and gender and extensive evaluation is required in boys over one year of age with UTI. This study also highlights the better efficacy of aminoglycosides, cefoperazone-sulbactam and nitrofurantoin in vitro compared with meropenem in Gram-negative uropathogens.
