Summary of "When neonatal inflammation does not mean infection: An early-onset mevalonate kinase deficiency with interstitial lung disease."

Systemic inflammation in neonates is attributable to an infection in almost all cases. When inflammation persists, an autoinflammatory disease should be promptly suspected. We report here a case of mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD) that presented at birth with mild symptoms and signs suggestive for a perinatal infection, together with the uncommon finding of interstitial lung disease. An extensive diagnostic work-up, performed after ineffective antibiotic treatment, demonstrated high levels of mevalonic acid in urine (7024 mM/M of creatinine, normal value <0.1). Next-generation sequencing showed a rare c.709A > T (p.T237S) homozygous mutation in the MVK gene, consistent with MKD. Treatment with anakinra led to a prompt resolution of symptoms and a sharp drop in serum inflammatory markers. The patient is now six months-old, currently undergoing evaluation for hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation. To our knowledge, this is the first case of MKD presenting within the first week of life with interstitial lung disease.

Updated Recommendations Of Rcog On Prevention Of Early Onset Neonatal Group B Streptococcus Infection.

The blood proteomic signature of early-onset pediatric atopic dermatitis shows systemic inflammation and is distinct from adult, longstanding disease.

Despite increasing evidence that adults with longstanding atopic dermatitis (AD) have systemic inflammation, little is known about systemic inflammation in recent-onset early pediatric AD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

Rare congenital metabolism disorders of the urea cycle. The disorders are due to mutations that result in complete (neonatal onset) or partial (childhood or adult onset) inactivity of an enzyme, involved in the urea cycle. Neonatal onset results in clinical features that include irritability, vomiting, lethargy, seizures, NEONATAL HYPOTONIA; RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS; HYPERAMMONEMIA; coma, and death. Survivors of the neonatal onset and childhood/adult onset disorders share common risks for ENCEPHALOPATHIES, METABOLIC, INBORN; and RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS due to HYPERAMMONEMIA.

Autosomal recessive metabolic disorder caused by mutations in PROPIONYL-COA CARBOXYLASE genes that result in dysfunction of branch chain amino acids and of the metabolism of certain fatty acids. Neonatal clinical onset is characterized by severe metabolic acidemia accompanied by hyperammonemia, HYPERGLYCEMIA, lethargy, vomiting, HYPOTONIA; and HEPATOMEGALY. Survivors of the neonatal onset propionic acidemia often show developmental retardation, and intolerance to dietary proteins. Late-onset form of the disease shows mild mental and/or developmental retardation, sometimes without metabolic acidemia.

A syndrome characterized by multiple system abnormalities including DWARFISM; PHOTOSENSITIVITY DISORDERS; PREMATURE AGING; and HEARING LOSS. It is caused by mutations of a number of autosomal recessive genes encoding proteins that involve transcriptional-coupled DNA REPAIR processes. Cockayne syndrome is classified by the severity and age of onset. Type I (classical; CSA) is early childhood onset in the second year of life; type II (congenital; CSB) is early onset at birth with severe symptoms; type III (xeroderma pigmentosum; XP) is late childhood onset with mild symptoms.

An autosomal recessive metabolic disorder caused by deficiencies in the mitochondrial GLYCINE cleavage system; an enzyme system with four components: P-, T-, H-, and L-proteins. Deficiency of the P-protein is the most prevalent form. Neonatal and juvenile presentations have been reported. Neonatal onset is more common and may be fatal. Clinical features include SEIZURES; hypotonia; APNEA; and COMA. When the illness presents in childhood there tends to be an associated progressive DEMENTIA accompanied by extrapyramidal signs.
