Serologic Diagnosis of Acute Rickettsiosis in Children in Southern Israel
We assessed serology results of clinically suspected rickettsiosis episodes in the hospital setting. Overall, 322 of 963 (33%) cases were serology positive. Among those, rash rates were low (30%), murine typhus (MT) predominated over spotted fever and IgM positivity rate was higher in MT. These findings suggest that during acute rickettsiosis, serology may reliably identify MT infection but may underdiagnose spotted fever. (Source: The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal)

Antibiotic Therapy of an Infant With a Brevibacterium casei Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt Infection
We describe a newborn infant with hydrocephalus and a ventriculoperitoneal shunt infection caused by Brevibacterium casei. Essential for correct diagnosis was rapid species identification by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight, after initial report of coryneform bacteria. The patient responded well to vancomycin and rifampicin for 15 days. The shunt was not removed. Repeated cerebrospinal fluid cultures up to 4 months after therapy remained negative.

Antibodies to Seasonal Coronaviruses Rarely Cross-React With SARS-CoV-2: Findings From an African Birth Cohort
Antibodies to seasonal human-coronaviruses (sHCoV) may cross-protect against SARS-CoV-2. We investigated antibody responses in biobanked serum obtained before the pandemic from infants with polymerase chain reaction-confirmed sHCoV. Among 141 samples with antibodies to sHCoV, 4 (2.8%) were positive for SARS-CoV-2-S1 and 8 (5.7%) for SARS-CoV-2-S2. Antibodies to sHCoV rarely cross-react with SARS-CoV-2 antigens and are unlikely to account for mild pediatric illness. (Source: The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal)

Reinfection With Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 Without Recurrence of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children is a rare, potentially life-threatening postinfectious complication in children after severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. It is currently unknown if multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) can recur upon reinfection with SARS-CoV-2. Here, we report on a former MIS-C patient who was reinfected with SARS-CoV-2 without recurrence of MIS-C. (Source: The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal)

“COVID Toes” in Three Siblings
Dermatologists reported an outbreak of pernio (red to purple swollen painful toes) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Most subjects lacked positive CoV-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or antibodies or a preceding illness. The dermatologists termed the illness “COVID toes.” Pernio usually affects adults versus “COVID toes” usually children. Pernio is preceded by a clear history of exposure to wet and cold. Patients with “COVID toes” lack this history. Also, it is not unusual for multiple family members to have “COVID toes.” Our case report describes “COVID toes” in a...

Applicability of the GAIA Maternal and Neonatal Outcome Case Definitions for the Evaluation of Adverse Events Following Vaccination in Pregnancy in High-income Countries
Conclusions: The applicability of GAIA case definitions to retrospectively ascertain and classify maternal and neonatal outcomes was variable among sites in high-resource settings. The implementation of the case definitions is largely dependent on the type and quality of documentation in clinical and research records in both high- and low-resource settings. While designed for use in the prospective evaluation of maternal vaccine safety, the GAIA case definitions would likely need to be specifically adapted for observational studies using alternative sources of data, linking various data sources and allowing flexibility...

How Common is Long COVID in Children and Adolescents?
In children, the risk of coronavirus disease (COVID) being severe is low. However, the risk of persistent symptoms following infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is uncertain in this age group, and the features of “long COVID” are poorly characterized. We reviewed the 14 studies to date that have reported persistent symptoms following COVID in children and adolescents. Almost all the studies have major limitations, including the lack of a clear case definition, variable follow-up times, inclusion of children without confirmation of SARS-CoV-2 infection, reliance on self- o...

Congenital Zika infection has been linked with a characteristic phenotype including neurologic sequelae. However, West syndrome has not been previously well described as a consequence. We aim to show this association through a retrospective descriptive study performed in Ecuador. Among 147 infants with congenital Zika infection, 7.5% suffered from West syndrome.

Maternal symptom status did not influence neonatal outcomes. Further studies to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 in early pregnancy, the variants of concern, particularly the emerging Delta variant and COVID-19 placentitis are required.

We present a case of a 17-year-old boy with X-linked agammaglobulinemia who had mild disease when initially infected with SARS-CoV-2 but after recovering from acute infection developed fevers and a raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate that persisted for several weeks without any ongoing respiratory symptoms. Multiple nasopharyngeal swabs were found to be negative for SARS-CoV-2 during the febrile period, but typical changes of COVID-19 on high resolution CT chest scan led to the detection of SARS-CoV-2 on RT-PCR in a sample from a bronchoalveolar lavage. His fevers completely resolved after a 5-day course of remdesivir. (...

Safety and Experience With Combined Antiretroviral Prophylaxis in Newborn at High-risk of Perinatal HIV Infection, in a Cohort of Mother Living With HIV-infant Pairs
Background: Perinatal transmission of HIV has dramatically decreased in high-income countries in the last few years with current rates below 1%, but it still occurs in high-risk situations, mainly pregnant women with late diagnosis of infection, poor antiretroviral adherence and a high viral load (VL). In these high-risk situations, many providers recommend combined neonatal prophylaxis (CNP). Our aim was to evaluate the safety and toxicity of CNP in infants deemed at high-risk of HIV infection among mother-infant pairs in the Madrid Cohort.

Effective and Safe Daclatasvir Drug Exposures Predicted in Children Using Adult Formulations
Background: Sofosbuvir (SOF)/daclatasvir (DCV) is the direct-acting antiviral regimen of choice in many low- and middle-income countries for curative treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in adults, but data on the use of DCV in children are lacking. We performed a population pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis to predict DCV exposure in children treated with available adult formulations. Methods: DCV concentration data from HCV-infected adolescents receiving SOF/DCV [400/60 mg, once daily (OD)] who participated in a PK study in Egypt were used for model development.
