Pleural effusion as an atypical presentation of Kawasaki disease: a case report and review of the literature

ConclusionPediatricians should consider the diagnosis of Kawasaki disease in the presence of pneumonia and pleural effusion that is nonresponsive to antibiotic therapy. This will prevent delay in diagnosis and the adverse consequences of the disease.

ConclusionsPillar suture combined with tonsillectomy may reduce postoperative bleeding incidence despite increasing pillar edema in pediatric tonsillectomy. Postoperative pain-relief, palatal hematoma, palatal discomfort sensation, site infection, and velopharyngeal insufficiency were not significantly altered compared to tonsillectomy alone. However, further studies are needed to corroborate the results of this study.ResumoIntroduçãoDiversas técnicas cirúrgicas têm sido utilizadas na tonsilectomia no intuito de reduzir complicações.ObjetivosAvaliar os efeitos da sutura dos p...

ConclusionsCMR is a key tool for diagnosing LDAC. Characteristic findings are subepicardial fatty infiltration and midwall-subepicardial late gadolinium enhancement. The prognosis of this population is poor with a high incidence of sudden cardiac death and ventricular arrhythmias.ResumenIntroducción y objetivosRecientemente, la miocardiopatía arritmogénica del ventrículo izquierdo (MCAVI) ha sido reconocida como parte del espectro de la miocardiopatía arritmogénica. Se caracteriza por el reemplazo fibroadiposo de la pared de dicho ventrículo. Se describen las formas de prese...

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Peter Carachi, Glyn WilliamsAbstractAcute pain management in the neonatal period remains a challenge for the clinician. Responses to pain and analgesic intervention are developmentally influenced and cannot be directly extrapolated from the older child. Successful and safe intervention will minimize acute physiological and behavioural distress, reduce pain scores and potentially improve short- and long-term outcomes. This requires an understanding of the physiology and pharmacology in this age group alongside a mult...

Conclusion: It may be employed either alone or in combination with cryotherapy, existing chemotherapy, bypass surgery or radiations to achieve the optimal results in these patients. Nevertheless, there is a need to formulate a uniform dose and procedure to achieve homogeneity and develop references for clinical practices. PMID: 31977258 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zervou MI, Goulielmos GN, Matalliotakis M, Matalliotaki C, Spandidos DA, Eliopoulos E Abstract Adenosine deaminase 2 (ADA2) belongs to the novel family of adenosine deaminase growth factors (ADGFs), which play an important role in tissue development. The deficiency of adenosine deaminase 2 (DADA2) is a recently recognized autosomal recessive autoinflammatory disease, characterized by various systemic vascular and inflammatory manifestations, which is associated with ADA2 mutations. Considering that a recent screening of an international registry of children with systemic primary vasculitis revealed novel a...

Authors: Haese N, Powers J, Streblow DN Abstract Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) infection in humans is rarely fatal but is often associated with chronic joint and muscle pain. Chronic CHIKV disease is highly debilitating and is associated with viral persistence. To date, there are no approved vaccines or therapeutics to prevent or treat CHIKV infections once they are established. Current palliative treatments aim to reduce joint inflammation and pain associated with acute and chronic CHIKV disease. Development of novel therapeutics that reduces viral loads should positively impact virus inflammatory disease and improve ...

Authors: Aoun F, Malek E, Kazan D, Albisinni S, Peltier A, Bollens R, Roumeguère T Abstract INTRODUCTION: Thoracolumbar dysfunction (TLD) had been evoked as a possible etiology of chronic testicular pain. Our study investigated the efficacy of osteopathic diagnosis and treatment of TLD in men with chronic testicular pain. METHODS: Patients suffering from testicular pain were examined for thoracolumbar dysfunction and enrolled in a prospective trial if they have both conditions. Following standardized examination, all patients were prescribed 1 to 3 osteopathic treatment sessions, usually at weekly interv...

CONCLUSIONS: Powerlifters with and without LBP show similar functional impairments and patho-anatomical findings. However, powerlifters' LBP seems associated with pain during movement and loading of the lumbar spine. The association and causation between specific functional impairments, patho-anatomical findings and LBP in powerlifters has to be further investigated in studies including more participants.

In this study, diazepam was selected as the benzodiazepine to detect any additive or synergistic effects on respiratory depression caused by the opioid, oxycodone. Pharmacokinetic studies were conducted at three doses with oxycodone (6.75, 60, 150 mg/kg) and with diazepam (2, 20, 200 mg/kg). Dose dependent decrease in arterial partial pressure of oxygen and increase in arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide were observed with oxycodone. Diazepam caused similar partial pressure changes only at the highest dose. Further decreases in arterial partial pressure of oxygen and increases in arterial partial pres...
