Severe Hyponatremia Secondary to Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter in a Neonate
Pericardial tamponade in neonates is a rare clinical condition, which may be fatal if recognition and appropriate management are delayed. It has been suggested that neonatal peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) placement is associated with pericardial effusion and tamponade; the incidence of and mortality from neonatal PICC-associated pericardial tamponade are 0.5–2% and 45–67%, respectively.1,2 (Source: Pediatrics and Neonatology)

Cystatin C as a Potential Biomarker for Neonatal Infants
Patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD) have been classified into stages 1 –5 according to their serum creatinine-based estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) for over three decades. Recently, cystatin C was proposed as an alternative filtration marker for creatinine due to limitations of creatinine measurement in risk prediction, particularly in patients with reduc ed muscle mass.1 Cystatin C is a non-glycosylated, low molecular weight, cation protein that is regularly synthesized by most nucleated cells.

Anomalous Origin of the Right Coronary Artery from the Pulmonary Artery in an Infant
Isolated anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the main pulmonary artery (ARCAPA) is a rare congenital anomaly, and few cases have been reported in the pediatric age group. Patients with ARCAPA are usually asymptomatic, although there are some case reports of sudden death, cardiomyopathy, angina, and syncope.1,2 We herein report the case of a 2-month-old male infant who experienced severe heart failure after an episode of upper respiratory tract infection. The echocardiogram revealed a poor left ventricular ejection fraction. (Source: Pediatrics and Neonatology)

The Role of Renal Ultrasound in Children with Febrile Urinary Tract Infection
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common cause of bacterial infection in febrile children. Because of urological structural anomalies that are associated with UTI, imaging studies such as renal and bladder ultrasound (RBUS), voiding cystourethrography (VCUG), and 99mtechnetium-dimercaptosuccinic acid renal scan (DMSA) may be performed to evaluate acute pyelonephritis or acute lobar nephronia, obstructive uropathies, vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), and possible renal scar formation. The pathogenesis of renal scar formation remains unknown; however, VUR has an important role in renal scar formation, which may lead permanent re...

Diagnostic Role of B-Type Natriuretic Peptide in Clinical Myocardial Injury Related to Neonatal Asphyxia
Several circulating cardiac biomarkers have gained wide applications in the field of adult and pediatric cardiology, and their roles in identifying cardiac diseases in newborn infants are emerging. Among these biomarkers, B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) is one of the most frequently utilized indicators of myocardial strain. Because BNP is released into the bloodstream in response to mechanical stress on the ventricular cardiomyocytes, this biomarker may provide insight into the extent of cardiac compromise from various hemodynamic insults in the newborn's heart.

Circulatory Management Focusing on Preventing Intraventricular Hemorrhage and Pulmonary Hemorrhage in Preterm Infants
The goal of modern neonatal care of extremely preterm infants is to reduce mortality and long-term neurological impairments. Preterm infants frequently experience cerebral intraventricular or pulmonary hemorrhage, which usually occurs within 72 hours after birth and can lead to long-term neurological sequelae and mortality. These serious hemorrhagic complications are closely related to perinatal hemodynamic changes, including an increase in the afterload on the left ventricle of the heart after the infant is separated from the placenta, and an increased preload from a left-to-right shunt caused by a hemodynamically si...

Antenatal interventions for CC such as transabdominal thoracocentesis, in utero pleurodesis, or the placement of a thoracoamniotic shunt may alter the natural course and improve perinatal outcome.3 A significantly poorer outcome occurs when fetal hydrops, preterm birth (Source: Pediatrics and Neonatology)

Congenital Ewing's Sarcoma/Peripheral Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
Ewing's sarcoma (EWS) and peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor (pPNET) are small round cell malignancies that develop in soft tissue and bone. They very rarely affect newborns. A diagnosis of EWS/pPNET depends mainly on immunohistochemistry and molecular/genetic assays. Since these tumors are highly aggressive, patient prognosis is typically very poor, and treatment remains a challenge. Here, we report a 13-day-old newborn diagnosed with congenital EWS/pPNET and describe its treatment. (Source: Pediatrics and Neonatology)

Maple Syrup Urine Disease Complicated with Kyphoscoliosis and Myelopathy
Maple syrup urine disease (MSUD) is an autosomal recessive aminoacidopathy secondary to an enzyme defect in the catabolic pathway of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs: leucine, isoleucine, and valine). Accumulation of their corresponding keto-acids leads to encephalopathy if not treated in time. A newborn male patient was suspected to have MSUD after tandem mass study when he presented symptoms and signs suggestive neonatal sepsis, anemia, and diarrhea. Food restriction of BCAAs was started; however, acrodermatitis enteropathica-like skin eruptions occurred at age 2 months. (Source: Pediatrics and Neonatology)

Trend of Nutritional Support in Preterm Infants
Without appropriate nutritional support, preterm infants fail to grow after birth and have malnutrition. The main reason for delayed feeding is fear of immaturity of gastrointestinal function. The principles of nutritional practice should be as follows: (1) minimal early initiation of enteral feeding with breast milk (0.5–1 mL/h) to start on Day 1 if possible and gradual increase as tolerated; (2) early aggressive parenteral nutrition as soon as possible; (3) provision of lipids at rates that will meet the additional energy needs of about 2–3 g/kg/d; and (4) attempt to increase enteral feeding rather ...
