A Practical Approach to Detect a Fastidious but Virulent Microorganism in Infective Endocarditis of Children: Cooperation

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.417

The Editor,

Sir,

Abiotrophia defectiva previously classified as nutritionally variant streptococcus is a fastidious Gram-positive bacteria that was described in 1995 (1). Little is known about the pathogenesis and clinical presentation of this organism in children (2). Abiotrophia endocarditis (AE) is very rare in children without underlying heart disease (3).

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.066
Pages: 
598–604
Synopsis: 
Even mild structural disorders of Corpus callosum (CC) may be important in the diagnosis of neurological diseases or syndromes in childhood. Therefore, it’s important to determine the reference values of CC dimensions in healthy children. These data can be applied to clinical practice.

The Role of Mean Platelet Volume as an Inflammatory Marker in Children with Allergic Rhinitis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.266
Synopsis: 
Although platelets are known to participate actively in both allergic and non-allergic types of inflammation, the mean platelet volume cannot be used as an indicator of inflammation in children with allergic rhinitis.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a potential marker of platelet reactivity. Increased MPV levels are shown to be the predictor of inflammation. The aim of this study was to investigate whether MPV is an inflammatory indicator in children with allergic rhinitis.

Hepatitis B Vaccination and Factors Related with Unresponsiveness in Healthy Children

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.146
Synopsis: 
Some healthy individuals do not develop an adequate immune response against the hepatitis B vaccine after the primary vaccination series. A multifactorial mechanism plays a role in hepatitis B vaccine unresponsiveness.

ABSTRACT

Background: The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of HBV vaccination and factors associated with vaccine unresponsiveness in healthy children.

How Approprıate are the Lengths of Syringe Needles Used for Subcutaneous Injections to the Children of School Age?

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.229
Synopsis: 
Today, relatively smaller pen needles compared with those previously used are recommended for subcutaneous insulin therapy. Currently, the available shortest pen needles for subcutaneous injections is 4 mm in length, each. Even when the shortest pen needle is used, the risk for intramuscular injection during subcutaneous injection is 50% in boys aged 6–8 years, while it is 25% in those aged 9–12 years and 13–17 years for each. It is 25% in all the three age groups among the girls. Smaller pen needles can help to achieve more accurate subcutaneous injections.

ABSTRACT

Aims:  To define the normal ranges of the thicknesses of the skin and subcutaneous tissues via ultrasonography, and to determine whether the current syringe needle-lengths used for the subcutaneous injections were appropriate.

Methods: The thicknesses of the skin and subcutaneous tissues of 2244 studentswere measured at the left arm using ultrasonography. Patients were divided into three groups based on age: 6 to 8, 9 to 12 and 13 to 17 year.

The Investigation of Plasma Glucagon-like Peptide-1 Levels in Newly Diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic Children

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.134
Pages: 
141–6
Synopsis: 
Fasting and postprandial glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and C-peptide levels in 25 newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic children were not different from 22 healthy children used as control. This suggests that plasma GLP-1 levels play no role in the pathogenesis of Type 1 diabetes.

Abstract

Objective: To reveal the possible role of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic children.

Methods: Twenty-five newly diagnosed children and 22 healthy children were included in the study.
