Antibiotic therapy in children – Knowledge and behavior of parents
Conclusions: Parents either do not know or insufficiently understand the purpose of the use of antibiotics in the treatment of children's URTI. Parents trust in a doctor's decision concerning antibiotic therapy, but frequently consult the Internet. Doctors give in to parents’ demands and prescribe antibiotics. Not respecting recommendations and antibiotics “self-treatment” are reprehensible. There is a need of educating parents and doctors in the reasonable use of antibiotics. (Source: Pediatria Polska)

Alstr öm syndrome: A case report of the Polish family and a brief review of the differential diagnoses
We report two brothers from Poland, initially diagnosed with cone-rod dystrophy. Analysis of the history and physical examination gave rise to the suspicion that the patients suffered from ALMS. Mutation analysis of ALMS1 gene revealed in both cases two heterozygous nonsense mutations: c.8164C>T (p.Arg2722*) in exon 10 and c.11207C>A (p.Ser3736*) in exon 16, what confirmed the diagnosis. In the context of our case, we review the genetic and clinical features of ALMS, focusing particular on the differential diagnosis and the necessity of molecular testing. (Source: Pediatria Polska)
