Development and validation of an instrument for monitoring child development indicators.
CONCLUSIONS: The instrument created and validated by experts fills a gap, as it allows a comprehensive evaluation of the development of children under 5years at the population level, using a fast and inexpensive tool, and can be useful for monitoring indicators of development in Brazilian children in vaccination campaigns.

Opportunistic infections in pediatrics: when to suspect and how to approach.
CONCLUSIONS: Despite the improved diagnosis of opportunistic infections in recent years, they remain a challenge for pediatricians who are not used to these infections. They should raise the suspicion and start treating the case, but should also resort to specialists in the management of these infections to provide a better outcome for these patients, who still have high mortality.

Transferrin isoelectric focusing for the investigation of congenital disorders of glycosylation: analysis of a ten-year experience in a Brazilian center.

The presence of inverted nipples and liver disease, especially in individuals aged 11 months to 3 years, should suggest the need for TfIEF investigation.

Distal intestinal obstruction syndrome: a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge in cystic fibrosis.
CONCLUSION: In this first report of pediatric DIOS in South America, the presence of two risk factors for DIOS occurrence was universal: pancreatic insufficiency and severe genotype. Medical history of meconium ileus at birth was present in most patients, as well as in the subgroup with DIOS recurrence. The diagnosis relied mainly on the clinical presentation and on abdominal imaging. The practices in the management of episodes varied, likely reflecting changes in the management of this syndrome throughout time.

The effect of interventions on the development of children at social risk and on the language domain was inconclusive, due to the scarcity of studies in the area.
