Congenital Diarrhea and Enteropathies in Infants: Approach to Diagnosis
AbstractCongenital diarrhea and enteropathies (CODEs) are monogenic disorders causing early onset of intractable diarrhea. Their diagnosis and management are challenging. With the availability of commercial next generation genetic testing, we are now better able to classify and manage these disorders. The authors present their experience with 4 cases. Two patients had congenital tufting enteropathy (CTE) and 1 case each of microvillous inclusion disease (MVID) and trichohepatoenteric syndrome (THES). Age at onset varied from 3 to 38 d of life. Light microscopy and electron microscopy of duodenal and rectal endoscopic biops...

Use of Inhaled Nitric Oxide in Preterm Infants: Is There Sufficient Evidence?
AbstractNitric oxide (NO) is a potent vasodilator. The inhaled form (iNO) improves outcomes in term infants with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) or bronchopulmonary dysplasia-associated pulmonary hypertension in preterm infants. However, in preterm infants, the risks and benefits of iNO use are controversial. Substantial evidence reveals no significant impact on survival or other morbidities in preterm infants with iNO treatment, independent of indication, timing, or duration of use. Many scientific organizations do not recommend the use of iNO in preterm infants, except in unique clinical circumsta...

Early Interventions for Infants at Risk for Developmental Impairment: The South Asian Perspective
AbstractMajority of under-five children with developmental disabilities live in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). A considerable proportion of disabilities results from perinatal adversities. The neonatal and infant mortality rates in India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka have improved over the last two decades, implying survival of infants at risk for developmental impairments. The need to thrive beyond survival is a well-recognized concept and it is imperative to establish high-risk infant follow-up (HRIF) programmes to capture these infants within the first 1000 d of life. Many challenges are present within the LMICs ...

This study was designed to describe the sleep profile in a cohort of children 5 –15 y with idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) using polysomnography (PSG) and Children's Sleep Habits Questionnaire (CSHQ) and Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). The controls included age- and gender-matched healthy controls. A total of 30 cases of IGE and matched 30 controls were enrolled i n study. The global CSHQ score [58.8 (10.8) vs. 32.3 (4.1);p

Evaluation of a Customized 3D Printed ORGAN-Hand Orthotic Device for Unilateral Cerebral Palsy: a Pilot Study
AbstractTo achieve intensive activity-based and goal-directed rehabilitation for unilateral cerebral palsy (UCP), several static and functional upper limb orthoses have been used but with limited robust evidence-base. The current pilot study evaluated the feasibility and efficacy of a customized 3D-printed orthotic device in children with UCP. The attainment of a prespecified goal and Shriners Hospital Upper Extremity Evaluation (SHUEE) at 3 and 6 mo were the efficacy measures. Of the 14 screened children, 5 (median age: 7.9 y; 3  boys) were included. The 3-mo follow-up could be completed for 3 children while 6-mo fol...

Non-GH Agents and Novel Therapeutics in the Management of Short Stature
AbstractShort stature is one of the most common reasons for referral to pediatric endocrinologists. The vast majority of short children do not have growth hormone (GH) deficiency or another pathologic process that is interfering with normal growth. While GH has been approved in the US for several etiologies of non-GH deficient short stature, its high cost and need for daily injections represent barriers for many families. Alternative agents for the management of short stature include the use of gonadotropin releasing hormone analogs (GnRHas) to delay puberty, and aromatase inhibitors (AIs) in boys to postpone epiphyseal fu...

AbstractSepsis is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity among neonates worldwide and especially affects the preterm neonates in resource-restricted settings. The infection may be acquired in utero, from the mother ’s genital tract or postnatally from the community or hospital environment and personnel. Factors including the time of exposure, size of the inoculum, immunity in the host, and virulence of the infectious agent affect the severity and course of illness. Culture-independent diagnostics, sepsis pre diction scores, antibiotic stewardship, and preventive strategies including hand hygiene are ong...
