Corrigendum
In the article “Trends in Outcomes for Neonates Born Very Preterm and Very Low Birth Weight in 11 High-Income Countries” by Lui et al (J Pediatr 2019;215:32-40), the authors reported an error in one of the values in this article. Specifically, the retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) treatment rate in the year 20 15 for the Canadian Neonatal Network was incorrect. This was due to a change in the database that resulted in cases of ROP treatment by injection not being counted. The correct frequency is 78 cases (n = 2305; 3.4%) in Table VIII, row 2 (CNN) under 2015; and in Figure 4, 2015 data point in t...

Gastrointestinal Bleeding: Expanding the Shortened Telomere Disorder Phenotype
Telomere biology disorders (TBD) are a group of disorders characterized by an elevated malignancy risk, mucocutaneous abnormalities, pulmonary and hepatic fibrosis and bone marrow failure secondary to severely reduced cellular telomere length (1,2). , the presence of vascular alterations in patients with TBD, including pulmonary arteriovenous malformations and retinal vessel disease, have been increasingly recognized (3). In this volume of The Journal, Himes et al sought to further elucidate the frequency and etiology of gastrointestinal hemorrhage in patients with an underlying TBD.

Improving Advance Care Planning for Seriously Ill Children: Engaging a Diverse Research Population Early and Often
In this volume of The Journal DeCourcey et al describe the development of a new pediatric serious illness communication program (PediSICP) to support providers in advance care planning conversations with their patients and families.1 Despite advanced care planning long being considered the standard of care for patients with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions,2 there is increasing awareness that pediatric providers still have room to improve.3 To address this meaningful gap, the authors used a step-wise, rigorous approach to adapt an adult communication guide for children.

Puberty Is Associated with a Rising Hemoglobin A1c, Even in Youth with Normal Weight
Our objective was to explore the longitudinal trajectory of hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) in well-characterized youth (n  = 84) with normal weight and obesity during puberty. HbA1c rose from early puberty to Tanner stage 5, even in healthy, normal weight youth, revealing important implications for defining normal glycemia and prediabetes in adolescents.

How to ACTFAST But Think Deliberately: An Intervention to Teach Critical Thinking in the Pediatric Clerkship
Critical thinking skills are essential for medical students to develop during their training.1-4 Students should be able to create concise, clear conceptualizations of active clinical issues, which requires proficiency in evaluating, appraising, and synthesizing patient data. Previous work has identified various ways in which students develop these critical thinking skills including the development of illness scripts, and use of both intuitive (system 1, fast, pattern recognition) and analytic (system 2, deliberate, learned) thinking.

Public health and criminal justice are intertwined
The United States (US) has the largest prison population in the world and the highest per-capita incarceration rate. The incarceration exposed population is not representative of the US public but is disproportionately male, black, unmarried, and earns less than $50 000/year. Many are parents. Not surprisingly, incarceration of pregnant women and/or their partners has adverse health consequences for infants. Using data from the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), 2009-2017, Testa and Jackson found that the incarceration of a pregnant woman or her partner is associated with low birth weight and preterm birt...

Disentangling the pathways of parent screen time and child behavior
The topic of digital device usage is a growing area of importance as devices are increasingly becoming a part of daily life for people of all ages worldwide. The medical field has made recommendations on limiting screen use for young children. However, new data are emerging that goes beyond focusing on just child screen time. In this volume of The Journal, Wong et al disentangle the factors of parent screen time, distracted parenting, parent-child interactions, and child behaviors. They used data from 1254 parent-child dyads (mean child age 3.4 years) from disadvantaged backgrounds in Hong Kong and evaluated the use of par...

Non-diagnostic results from rapid exome sequencing can change clinical management in the critical care setting
Exome sequencing, the simultaneous sequencing of the ∼20 000 genes in the human genome, has helped elucidate the molecular etiology of disease and is increasingly used as a diagnostic test. In this volume of The Journal, Freed et al discuss how 46 individuals were selected for rapid exome sequencing (rES) in critical care units of a single hospital and how the results led to a change in clinical management in over 50% of cases. Even though a molecular diagnosis was made in ∼40% of cases, a “negative” or non-diagnostic exome, helped change management in 5 cases. (Source: The Journal of Pediatrics)

The continuing problem of post-hemorrhagic ventricular dilation in infants born prematurely
In this volume of The Journal of Pediatrics, 3 articles are devoted to a life-altering condition in infants born prematurely: severe brain hemorrhage with post-hemorrhagic ventricular dilation (PHVD). Infants with extreme prematurity are particularly vulnerable to this condition and Shankaran et al assembled a cohort of 815 infants born in 2011-2015 at ≤26 weeks of gestation with PHVD and followed them to 18-26 months. The high rates of death or neurodevelopmental impairment reported in this cohort obligate us to find new approaches to help infants recover from severe brain injury and improve outcomes.

Neural tube defects persist despite fortification
Many pediatricians assume that neural tube defects (NTDs) are disorders of past times, prior to the introduction of prenatal vitamins in the 1970s and 1980s and then fortification of cereal grain products with folic acid in the late 1990s. However, in this volume of The Journal, Dean et al show that such thinking is simply wrong. The investigators examined the incidence of NTDs —spina bifida, anencephaly, and encephalocele—with and without other associated anomalies in South Carolina over 6 years before fortification and during 20 years with fortification (Figure).

The relationship between adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and childhood-onset arthritis
Rubinstein et al examined the relationship of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and childhood-onset chronic arthritis by using a sample of youth from the 2016 US National Survey of Children's Health. They found a significant association when children with chronic arthritis (most also had other chronic physical conditions) were compared with healthy children or children with other chronic physical conditions without arthritis. The odds ratio of chronic arthritis increased with a greater number of ACEs; those having ≥4 ACEs had an odds ratio of 9.4. (Source: The Journal of Pediatrics)

Seizure rescue medications for out-of-hospital use in children
For the past two decades, rectal diazepam (Diastat) has been the sole US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medication for treatment of bouts of seizures in the out-of-hospital setting for patients with epilepsy. Clonazepam has also been used frequently off-label for acute, repetitive seizures, as well as other indications. In the past year, the FDA has approved two new formulations as seizure rescue medications: intranasal midazolam (Nayzilam), and intranasal diazepam (Valtoco). Seizure rescue medications are rapidly acting antiepileptic drugs that help to stop a seizure quickly before it progresses to a medical ...
