Breastmilk donations: Bacteriological assessment, analysis of causes of non-compliance and suggestions for improvement.

A total of 1099 breastmilk donations received by the milk bank at the Amiens University Hospital from January to June 2016 were assessed for bacteriological contamination according to French regulations. This consisted in enumerating the total aerobic flora before and after heat treatment as well as the specific enumeration of coagulase-positive staphylococci. Results above the mandatory limits for at least one of these parameters were found in 25.9% of the donations, resulting in the destruction of approxi...

Culture at the hospital is part of a policy of providing everyone access to culture. This article describes a musical intervention that provides patients and healthcare professionals a central role in creation; qualitatively assesses the benefits of these interventions for children and caregivers; evaluate the lessons learned from this ongoing experience in the pediatric hemodialysis unit of Rouen University Hospital. Ninety-minute sessions take place twice a week, with eight children aged from 18months to ...

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding in adolescents with severe obesity: Psychological aspects, decision makers of surgery, and 2-year outcomes. A case series.

The results of medical treatment of severe obesity in the adolescent population (balanced diet and physical activity) are often unsatisfactory, and bariatric surgery is questioned. The psychological determinants for requesting bariatric surgery in these adolescents are unclear. The objective of this study was to report the psychiatric and psychological aspects as well as the determinants of the medical decision for surgery in a cohort of obese adolescents requesting bariatric surgery by laparoscopic adjusta...

Prophylaxis in case of tick bite in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.

Purpura of the chin: Two consecutive cases.

Two healthy children, a 10-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl, both with no previous medical history, unrelated, presented with pinpoint purpura of the chin and the upper lip. It had appeared 2 days before and extended from the chin to the lower lip. Neither had fever or recent trauma, nor had they taken any medication. Their vital parameters and physical examination were normal. Their peripheral blood cell counts and coagulation parameters were normal. A week later, upon the follow-up consultation, the pu...

Maternal adherence to guidance on breast milk collection process.

Breast milk expression with a breast pump increases the risk of contaminating milk with pathogenic bacteria; how to decontaminate breast pumps is controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate maternal adherence to updated French guidance on the breast milk collection process, including breast pump decontamination, and to identify potential sources of increased bacterial counts in breast milk in order to improve prevention messages to mothers.

Child sexual abuse: Description of a French population having consulted in a forensic medical service between 2011 and 2015.

When child sexual abuse (CSA) is suspected, the detection of anogenital anomalies is rare. In France, since 2011, most clinical examinations of children for whom CSA is suspected take place in the forensic medical service (FMS).

Neurocutaneous syndromes are heterogenous diseases that are diagnosed in the presence of skin and central nervous system disorders. Neurofibromatosis (NF) is one of these disorders, with autosomal dominant inheritance, that causes tumors that grow on nerves as well as other abnormalities such as skin changes and bone deformities. The most common form of NF is type I. A 6-year-old Iranian boy with neurofibromatosis was referred to the pediatric cardiology clinic due to a soft holosystolic murmur discovered o...

Perineal groove: Case report and review of the literature.

Perineal groove is a rare anoperineal congenital malformation, usually occurring in girls, unknown to many pediatricians. We report the case of a 17-day-old girl admitted for urinary infection, who presented a wet sulcus with mucous membrane, extending from the vaginal fourchette to the anterior border of the anus. The diagnosis of perineal groove was clinically confirmed, after elimination of misdiagnosis such as infection or trauma. This benign malformation tends to be self-epithelialized in the 1st year ...

Childhood steroid-dependent idiopathic nephrotic syndrome: Predictive factors for the need of immunosuppressive treatment.

More than half of the children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome become steroid-dependent (or frequent relapsers) and will later require the use of complementary treatment aiming to reduce steroids' side effects and to limit the number of proteinuria relapses. It appears important to identify these children as early as possible in order to adapt their treatment. The aim of this study was to analyze the population of children, under 18 years of age, diagnosed between 1/01/2000 and 31/05/2015 with an idiopat...

A survey on premedication prior to intubation in very preterm infants (28-32WG) with respiratory distress syndrome in French neonatal intensive care units.

Tracheal intubation is a painful procedure for which the routine use of analgesia is recommended. However, the use of premedication for intubation is not yet generalized and there is great diversity in the drugs used. The main objective of this study was to describe the frequency of premedication use in preterm neonates aged between 28 and 32weeks of gestation, intubated for respiratory distress syndrome. Secondary objectives were to describe the existence of a written protocol, its influence on the freque...

Congenital cytomegalovirus infection manifesting as neonatal respiratory distress in an HIV-exposed uninfected newborn.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is one of the most common intrauterine infections, affecting approximately 1% of all live births. There are few reports on congenital CMV infections manifesting as isolated pneumonitis.

Severe poisoning by traditional medication in the newborn.

The use of traditional products for therapeutic purposes in the newborn cause many cases of severe poisoning, especially in newborns. The aim of this study was to identify the main medicinal plants causing poisoning and emphasize the seriousness of poisonous plants. We report a series of eight newborns admitted for intake of poisonous medicinal plants admitted to the neonatal unit and neonatal intensive care unit at the Fez (Morocco) Hassan II University Hospital in 2014. The reasons for use were dominated ...

ECG before administration of Ritalin(®): Is it useful ?

Zellweger syndrome.

Identifying pediatric victims and informing their families: An additional difficulty.

The lung microbiota. Review.

In the last 20years, culture-independent DNA-based techniques ("shotgun sequencing") demonstrated that complex microbial communities reside on most epithelial surfaces, including the lower airways. Until the amniotic sac ruptures, a fetus is considered to be essentially sterile. Many factors affect the composition of the lung microbiota: inheritance, mode of delivery, diet, and age-related changes in adults. It interacts with the digestive and oropharyngeal microbiotas. Animal models show that these interac...

Is nephron-sparing surgery relevant for unilateral Wilms tumors?

Wilms tumors (WTs) are the most frequent renal tumors in children. Radical nephrectomy (RN) remains the gold-standard surgical treatment for this type of cancer. Excellent results in overall survival (>90%) make it possible to consider nephronic preservation. The objective of this systematic review is to evaluate the relevance of nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) for the treatment of nonsyndromic unilateral Wilms tumor (UWT) in children.

Dystonia 12: A rare and difficult diagnosis.

We report a case of dystonia 12, also called rapid-onset dystonia-parkinsonism, which occurred in a young 12-year-old boy. Type 12 dystonia is a genetic syndrome characterized by a pathogenic mutation on ATP1A3 gene encoding the subunit alpha 3 of Na-K-ATPase protein, resulting in neuronal dysfunctions. It remains a rare syndrome with less than 100 cases described in the literature. Its atypical presentation and its rarity may lead to a wandering diagnosis, even in some cases to a conversion hysteria diagno...

Giant mesocolic cystic lymphangioma: A treacherous prenatal presentation. Case report.

Cystic lymphangiomas are usually located in the neck region. Less frequently, they can be found in the abdomen. In those cases, pre- and neonatal diagnosis is extremely difficult. We report on the case of a giant mesocolic cystic lymphangioma, diagnosed at birth, in a child who had been monitored during the prenatal period for what was believed to be a digestive dilatation. The progression was marked by excellent tolerance despite a complete lack of regression in the first 10 months of life. The authors di...

Amputation of a limb secondary to snakebite in a child.

Amputation of a limb is a serious consequence of snakebite poisoning. It is caused by the toxicity of the venom and often the use of a tourniquet in some patients, which can lead to limb ischemia. Management of the victim aims to ensure survival and preserve the function of the bitten limb. Antivenom immunotherapy is the only specific treatment for ophidian envenomation. It is indicated in cases of general symptoms and signs related to the bite, but also if local damage could lead to the loss of limb functi...

Mydriatic eye drops for children: Analysis of use.

Mydriatic eye drops are indicated for ophthalmologic exams (fundus and cycloplegic effect for refraction diagnosis). Their use must be optimal to avoid adverse reactions. This is even more important in pediatrics, because few clinical studies were conducted in this population during drug development. We reviewed the use of mydriatic eye drops, gathering information from the Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC) from the Theriaque(®) database (CNHIM) and the manufacturers' information, in terms of dose, ...

Early antithrombotic treatment with warfarin oral suspension in severe neonatal protein C deficiency.

Neonatal severe protein C deficiency is a serious disease. There is no uniform approach for long-term preventive treatment of thrombotic events. We report the case of neonatal severe protein C deficiency treated with warfarin oral suspension. An international normalized ratio (INR) from 2.5 to 3.5 was expected. The INR was measured by home monitoring using the Coaguchek XS(®) (Roche Diagnostics, Mannheim, Germany) monitor. During 2years of warfarin treatment, there were only two minor episodes of purpuric ...

Management of infants whose diagnosis is inconclusive at neonatal screening for cystic fibrosis.

Neonatal screening for cystic fibrosis (CF) may detect infants with elevated immunoreactive trypsinogen (IRT) levels but with inconclusive sweat tests and/or DNA results. This includes cases associating (1) either the presence of at most one CF-causing mutation and sweat chloride values between 30 and 59mmol/L or (2) two CFTR mutations with at least one of unknown pathogenicity and a sweat chloride below 60mmol/L. This encompasses different clinical situations whose progression cannot be predicted. These ...

The place of neuropathy in the early diagnosis of Cockayne syndrome: Report on two siblings.

Two siblings affected with Cockayne syndrome (CS) are described: this diagnosis was suggested by the finding of a demyelinating neuropathy on electromyography in both children and consistent clinical features. CS is a rare genetic disorder with severe prognosis and a highly varied phenotype, making early diagnosis difficult. Taking into account these two cases and the literature, the current diagnosis criteria are insufficiently specific and appear late: the diagnosis may be delayed because multi-organ invo...
