COVID-19 in perinatal period: questions and consequences
CONCLUSIONS: Our knowledge of the perinatal and neonatal effects of COVID-19 infection changes rapidly. Therefore, close follow-up of the mother-infant dyads is important. Larger epidemiological and clinical cohort studies are needed to better understand the possible implications and long-term outcomes of COVID-19 infection and also maternal vaccination in newborn infants.PMID:35286025 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2021.890 (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

Chest imaging for COVID-19: a single-center comparative results in pediatric patients
CONCLUSIONS: The sensitivity of chest CT was found to be low and any significant correlations could have not been depicted, between the radiological parameters and the presence of lymphopenia. Clinical follow-up combined with corresponding pathogen detection, and chest CT of the symptomatic COVID-19 patients might be a feasible/prompt protocol in children.PMID:35286027 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2020.3708 (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

Prevalence of COVID-19 infection in asymptomatic school children
CONCLUSIONS: We determined in the study that the prevalence of COVID-19 infection was not high in asymptomatic school children in the period when schools were open. This may play a role in directing the education and training during the pandemic.PMID:35286028 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2021.4608 (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

Trend in initial presenting features of type 1 diabetes mellitus over a 24 year period in Turkey: a retrospective analysis of 814 cases

The potentially harmful excipients in prescribed medications in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Kosovo and available safer alternatives
CONCLUSIONS: We have provided the first detailed description of neonatal exposure to potentially harmful excipients among neonates admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit in Kosovo. Unnecessary exposure could be reduced by using EOI-free products available in the local medicine market. Collaborative initiative is required to build up the evidence on the use of EOI in neonates and raising awareness among health care professionals on use of products without EOI where possible.PMID:35286030 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2021.4136 (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

Clinical and molecular findings in 6 Turkish cases with Krabbe disease
CONCLUSIONS: We believe that the demonstration of the genetic spectrum of infantile-onset Krabbe disease in Turkish patients will be an important contribution to the GALC mutation data in our country. More importantly, two novel variants were defined. This knowledge may enable early detection and treatment with the advent of a carrier or newborn screening tests.PMID:35286032 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2020.3713 (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

Correlation and prediction of arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide from venous umbilical blood gases
CONCLUSIONS: pCO < sub > 2(UVBG) < /sub > correlates with and can predict pCO < sub > 2(UABG) < /sub > . Therefore, pCO < sub > 2(UVBG) < /sub > can be applied to pCO < sub > 2(UABG) < /sub > in neonates for whom UAC insertion is unsuccessful or to avoid an arterial puncture.PMID:35286034 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2021.619 (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

The role of immature granulocyte percentage in predicting acute chest syndrome and the severity of the vaso-occlusive crisis in sickle cell disease
CONCLUSIONS: Despite a small SCD cohort, the significant increase in the IG% in patients with VOC compared to their baseline values has suggested a role for IG% in predicting VOC. Although IG% was higher in ACS, its utility in predicting ACS was poor.PMID:35286035 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2021.1385 (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

Does bile reflux reduce Helicobacter pylori gastritis?
CONCLUSIONS: Helicobacter pylori gastritis is less common among patients with bile reflux. In another study conducted in our outpatient clinic before the 2000s, the frequency of Helicobacter pylori gastritis was found to be 40%, but after 2000 this rate decreased to 22.3% due to bile reflux caused by the changing food industry. This result may be explained by the bactericidal effects of bile acids.PMID:35286038 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2020.2839 (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)
