Multisystem inflammatory syndrome associated with COVID-19 from the pediatric emergency physician's point of view.
CONCLUSIONS: MIS-C associated with COVID-19 is serious, rare, and potentially fatal. The emergency department pediatrician must recognize and treat it early using immunomodulatory strategies to reduce systemic injury. Further studies are needed to identify the disease pathogenesis and establish the most appropriate treatment. PMID: 32946801 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Jornal de Pediatria)

Evaluation of the prevalence and factors associated with acute kidney injury in a pediatric intensive care unit.
CONCLUSION: Older children, diagnosis of sepsis, demand for ventilatory support, and use of vasoactive amines were correlated with a higher risk of developing acute kidney injury. The mortality associated with acute kidney injury was elevated; it is crucial that all measures that ensure adequate renal perfusion are taken for patients with risk factors, to avoid the installation of the disease.

Adenovirus 36 infection and daycare starting age are associated with adiposity in children and adolescents.
CONCLUSION: This study concluded that excessive weight was positively associated with seropositivity for Adv36. Early enrollment in a full-time daycare was also an associated factor for obesity. Such data, confirmed in new studies, reinforces the role of Adv36 in the increase of childhood adiposity. PMID: 32910885 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Jornal de Pediatria)

Validation of the Adolescent Barriers Questionnaire for use in Brazilian adolescents with cancer.
CONCLUSION: After the process of translation, validation, and analysis of psychometric properties, the Brazilian Portuguese version of ABQ was considered to be culturally adapted, valid, and reliable for the Brazilian adolescent population with cancer aged 12-18 years. It can be a useful tool in clinical practice, offering the health professionals the opportunity to understand the barriers adolescents with cancer can encounter and offer support to overcome them.

Laboratory diagnosis of COVID-19.
CONCLUSIONS: The identification of genetic material of the virus by RT-PCR is the gold standard test, but its sensitivity is not satisfactory. The diagnosis of COVID-19 should be based on clinical data, epidemiological history, tests for etiological diagnosis, and tests to support the diagnosis of the disease and/or its complications. New diagnostic methods with higher sensitivity and specificity, as well as faster results, are necessary. PMID: 32882235 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Jornal de Pediatria)

Predictive factors of recurrence after pediatric acute pericarditis.
CONCLUSION: Independent risk factors for recurrence are absence of myocarditis, non-idiopathic etiology pericarditis, C-reactive protein≥125mg/L, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate≥50mm/h. Acute pericarditis should be treated with non-steroid anti-inflammatory therapy. A combination of colchicine and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs could be recommended as the treatment of choice in recurrent pericarditis.
