Clinical Profile of Familial Mediterranean Fever in a Paediatric Population in Eastern Turkey

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.173
Pages: 
281–6
Synopsis: 
Familial Mediterranean fever is a frequently seen chronic inflammatory disease that can lead to severe morbidity and mortality if left untreated. Severity and frequency of attacks are correlated with mutations. However, environmental factors play an important role as the clinical course can differ even in people with mutations.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Clinical and genetic findings of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) may vary in different populations. Environmental factors may also affect phenotypic features of FMF. In this study, we investigated demographic, clinical and mutational features of FMF patients treated in a single reference hospital in Turkey.

Pediatric Isolated Trachea Rupture Treated with a Conservative Approach

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.113

ABSTRACT

Tracheobronchial rupture as a result of blunt thoracic trauma is extremely rare in children; it is a life-threatening event, as it progresses rapidly and causes respiratory problems. The causes of non-penetrating tracheobronchial injury include blunt cervical trauma, endotracheal intubation, and other iatrogenic reasons.

This paper presents the clinical and radiological results of a pediatric patient who developed an isolated tracheal rupture following blunt thoracic trauma.

DOI: 
10.7725/wimj.2015.005
Synopsis: 
The etiology of appendicitis is multifactorial, although it is affected by several precursor factors. While there are several known factors in acute appendicitis, the cause cannot be identified in some cases. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether allergic diseases cause a disposition to appendicitis

ABSTRACT

Objective: Appendicitis, the most common cause of abdominal pain requiring surgery in children, refers to inflammation of the vermiform appendix. The etiology of appendicitis is multifactorial, although it is affected by several precursor factors. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether allergic diseases cause a disposition to appendicitis.

Thoracoabdominal Duplication Symptomatic on Both Sides: A Case Report

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.264
Pages: 
192–4

ABSTRACT

Thoracoabdominal foregut duplications account for less than 2% of all gastrointestinal duplications. Here, we report a case of thoracoabdominal duplication cyst in an eight-month old boy who presented with both respiratory and abdominal complaints. Excision of both thoracic and abdominal extensions of the thoracoabdominal duplications in the same session is an appropriate and safe option to prevent possible complications.
