To meet the sustainable development goals (SDG) target of reducing under-five mortality to 25 per 1000 live births, concerted efforts are required to end all preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 y of age. There is evidence to support Integrated Management of Neonatal and Childhood Illness (IMNCI) as a cost- effective strategy which can improve child survival. IMNCI has 3 components- capacity building of health workers, health system strengthening and improving community and family practice. For best results, all three components of the IMNCI strategy should be implemented in a coordinated fashion...

OBJECTIVES: Management of neuroblastoma, especially high-risk (HR) disease is difficult in a resource-limited setting. There is a paucity of literature on outcomes of patients treated in India. The present study was conducted to analyse the clinical profile, treatment, and outcomes of patients with neuroblastoma treated at authors' centre. METHODS: The study was a retrospective analysis of newly diagnosed patients with neuroblastoma treated at authors' centre between 2000 to 2017...

The bowel is a challenging abdominal organ to image. The main reason is the variable location, convoluted morphology and motility. A variety of bowel disorders such as congenital, developmental, inflammatory, infectious and neoplastic lesions can affect children and most of them are either unique to this age group or have a distinct clinico-radiological appearance compared to adults. Imaging plays a very important role in characterizing these lesions and further guiding the management. This is the first part of the series on imaging of bowel disorders in children...

Chest is the commonest site of involvement by tuberculosis (TB) in children; lungs being the most frequently affected region, followed by nodes, pleura and chest wall. It is difficult to diagnose TB in children due to lack of overt symptoms and difficulty in obtaining samples for microbiological confirmation. Hence various imaging modalities play an important role in diagnostic algorithm as well as in follow-up after treatment. Standardization of chest radiograph reporting in context of clinically suspected TB is the need of the hour so as to suggest a proper diagnosis and avoid over-diagnosis...

Intestinal failure-associated liver disease (IFALD) is a fatal complication of short bowel syndrome managed with parenteral nutrition. A clinical cohort study reported the usefulness of parenteral administration of fish-derived omega-3 fatty acids in improving IFALD; however, no biomarker has been developed as yet. The authors report the case of a preterm infant with IFALD complicated by extensive short bowel syndrome. Intravenous administration of omega-3 fatty acids were introduced using Omegaven®at the age of 4 mo for IFALD...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the upper body segment (US), lower body segment (LS) and US:LS ratio for children from birth to 18 y of age and to compare these data with other US:LS ratio norms from previously reported studies. METHODS: A cross-sectional, observational study was conducted in children [birth to 18 y; n = 5454 children (3158 boys)] residing in Pune city, Western India, from December 2015 through June 2017, to evaluate the US, LS and the US:LS ratio. RESULTS: The mean US:LS ratio in boys at birth was 1...

OBJECTIVES: To identify prognostic factors and indications in patients receiving continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), and to demonstrate their effect on mortality. METHODS: A total of 63 patients admitted between 2011 and 2014 were included in the study. The demographic information, pediatric risk of mortality (PRISM) scores, vasoactive-inotropic score, indication for CRRT, time of starting CRRT, presence of fluid overload, durations of CRRT, and pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) stay were compared between survivors and non-survivors...

Tuberculosis (TB), once widely prevalent throughout the world, experienced falling incidence rates in early twentieth century in developed nations, even before the introduction of anti-TB drugs, attributed to improved hygiene and living conditions. Active TB may develop following fresh infection or activation of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). LTBI is a state of persistent bacterial viability, however, the host stays asymptomatic and there is no evidence of clinically active tuberculosis. Therefore, treatment of all LTBI is considered as one of the ways to control tuberculosis...

REVIEW
Siddarth Ramji, Ashish Jain
RMNCH+A is a platform for delivering adolescent, maternal, newborn and child health in an integrated manner using a life cycle approach. The new initiatives under this strategy that would impact newborn health include antenatal corticosteroids in preterm labor, delayed clamping of cord at birth, skin-to-skin contact at birth and Kangaroo mother care, Family participatory care, Lactation management centers and care beyond newborn survival under the Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram. Even though the coverage of many of the existing initiatives has been moderately high, there are concerns about the quality of delivery of these interventions and slow progress in the roll out of the newer interventions...
