Tarar, Sheikh RiazuddinAbstractAimsThermal burns are the most common type of skin injuries. Clinically, the deteriorating thermal wounds have been successfully treated with skin cell sheets, suspensions or bioengineered skin substitutes. After thermal injury, oxidative microenvironment prevalent in the burnt tissue due to imbalance between production of free radicals and antioxidants defense aiding to destruction of cellular or tissue components. However, depleted antioxidant con...

Background Parents of children undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are at risk of adverse health outcomes due to their intense caregiver demands. Objective The aim of this study was to describe adverse health outcomes in parents of children who survived an allogeneic HSCT done within the past 1 to 10 years. Methods This cross-sectional study, conducted at a children's hospital in the western United States, enrolled English- and Spanish-speaking parents of children who survived allogeneic HSCT between 2005 and 2015. Outcome measures included Beck Anxiety and Depression Inventories, Perceived St...

Conclusions Symptoms persist and remain severe and distressing throughout the first 90 days after HSCT, with pain and lack of energy among the highest in incidence, severity, and distress. Implications for Practice Awareness of symptom trajectories empowers nurses to assess for symptoms throughout the HSCT process and conduct meaningful symptom discussions with their patients.

Prognostic refinement in Fanconi anemia (FA) is needed, especially when considering allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT). We studied 20 children with FA and bone marrow failure from a single center. According to Hôpital Saint-Louis risk classification for FA, patients were classified in stage A (no or mild cytopenia/dysplasia), B (single non–high-risk cytogenetic abnormality), C (severe cytopenia and/or significant dysplasia and/or high-risk cytogenetic abnormality), and D (myelodysplastic syndrome with excess of blasts/acute myeloid leukemia) in 4, 2, 13, and 0 cases, respectively. Nine pat...

Gram-negative rod (GNR) infections adversely affect the outcome of patients with malignancies and following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). This retrospective observational study aimed to describe the epidemiology, outcome, and resistance patterns of GNR bacteremia in children with hematologic malignancies (HM) and after HSCT during the period spanning from 2010 to 2014 in a tertiary children’s hospital. A total of 270 children were included in the analysis; 65 (24%) developed 85 episodes of GNR bacteremia; the rate was 36/122 (29.5%) in post-HSCT and 29/178 (16.3%) in HM patients (P30 days in the las...

We report the outcome of 18 pediatric patients after failure of HSCT2. The 2-year overall survival was 26% (95% confidence interval [CI], 6-47). The lymphoid malignancies were associated with better survival (40% [95% CI, 12-68]) than myeloid malignancies (0%, P=0.002), together with time to relapse after the HSCT2 (≥5 mo: 44% [95% CI, 12-76] vs. 0% for patients who relapsed within 5 mo from HSCT2, P=0.005), other factors such as sex, donor type, conditioning regimen, and graft versus host disease prophylaxis did not have statistical significance. When the multivariate analysis was carried out, 2 independe...

We report the case of an 18-year-old male who developed hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) with neurologic complications after primary Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and subsequently developed EBV-related central nervous system lymphoma (CNSL). Given the vulnerability to EBV, he was finally diagnosed with XLP1 and treated with whole-brain irradiation along with chemotherapy and subsequent allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from a SH2D1A wild-type sibling donor. Although the prognosis for CNSL is generally dismal, reconstitution of the immune system from a normal donor contributed to the patient re...

It is clinically and genetically heterogeneous and in its natural history, renal disease progresses from microscopic haematuria to proteinuria, and finally to progressive renal insufficiency. AS is caused by an inherited defect in...

There are two types of dialysis: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis (1). Peritoneal dialysis is preferred in young children because getting the vascular access for hemodialysis is challenging (2). Catheters should be surgically placed in a paramedian or lateral abdominal region with an extremity located in D...
