Arthralgia Accompanying Typhoid Fever in Children: Single Centre Experience

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2018.038
Synopsis: 
We retrospectively evaluated the records of 100 patients (46 female and 54 male) with a mean age of 8.78 ± 4.66 years (range: 5‒213 months). We determined that, in children with arthralgia accompanying typhoid fever; muscle pain and organomegaly were the most common symptoms accompanying arthralgia while knee joint and ankle were the most commonly affected joints. In treatment 3rd generation cephalosporin should be kept in mind in unresponsive patients.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To determine the general characteristics of children with arthralgia associated with typhoid fever.

Material and Method: General characteristics of the disease and laboratory of children diagnosed with typhoid fever and accompanying arthralgia were investigated from the hospital records. Arthralgia was determined regarding the patients’ personal reports.

Correlation between Processus vaginalis Patency and Metachronous Inguinal Hernia in Children

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.595
Pages: 
Synopsis: 
The incidence of asymptomatic patent processus vaginalis (PPV) does not significantly decrease with age. However, age and gender play an important role in the development of MCIH from PPV.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: In the present study, we report the incidence of CPPV with unilateral inguinal hernia and future MCIH, with the aim of assisting treatment of this disease.

Methods: A total of 20 636 cases of unilateral inguinal hernia that were surgically treated between January 2002 and December 2009 were retrospectively evaluated. Statistics were performed using Pearson test or χ2 as appropriate, and p < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.

Brain MRI Findings and Distribution of the Findings According to the Age Groups in Childhood Epilepsies

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.175
Pages: 
Synopsis: 
The most common pathology in all age groups that caused epilepsy in children was the indication of parenchymal damage. Another common pathology is hippocampal sclerosis and cortical developmental abnormalities. MRI is a noninvasive imaging modality that can be used to identify pathologies that do not involve any ionizing radiation and lead to epileptic attacks in childhood.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We aimed to retrospectively analyze the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) observations and the distribution of etiological factors according to age groups in cases with MRI examinations for an epilepsy diagnosis.

Methods: The brain MRI of 606 cases from the 0–17 years age group were analyzed retrospectively, and the findings were evaluated according to the age group.

2:1 Block with Wenckebach Mechanism in Children Due to Different Etiologies

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.577
Synopsis: 
Our results suggest that the clues indicating a Wenckebach mechanism in children with 2:1 atrioventricular block (2:1 AVB) can be obtained by noninvasive techniques. In children with sustained 2:1 AVB intracardiac electrophysiological study can help in the differentiation, and the prognosis seems good.

ABSTRACT

Objective: In children 2:1 Atrioventricular Block (AVB) with Wenckebach mechanism is a rare entity.

Subjects and methods: In 7 children, 2:1 Atrioventricular Block (AVB) with Wenckebach mechanism was detected. The clinical features of these children are retrospectively evaluated.
