BACKGROUND: Lower gestational age negatively affects the neurodevelopmental outcomes of infants. Early motor repertoire is a reliable way to predict neurodevelopmental outcomes. This study aimed to determine the correlation between gestational age and early motor repertoire in infants and also the roles of multiple pregnancies, gender, cranial utrasonography (USG) results, and birth weight in this relationship. METHODS: This study included 139 infants, who were video recorded 9-17 weeks post-term...

BACKGROUND: Mean platelet volume (MPV), which is regarded as a marker of thrombocyte function and activation, is related to increased morbidity and mortality. In critically ill patients, the ratio of MPV to platelets can independently predict adverse outcomes. This study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of the mean platelet volume/platelet count ratio (MPR) for mortality in children with acute kidney injury (AKI). METHODS: In this retrospective study, patients hospitalized in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) between March 2020 and June 2022 were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis (pLCH) is a rare disease, mostly a component of multisystemic LCH. We aimed to investigate the clinical features and treatment results in children with pLCH. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical, radiological, and treatment data of 37 patients with pLCH, diagnosed from 1974 to 2022. RESULTS: 10% (n=37) of 367 patients with LCH had lung involvement. The median age was 1.8 years (range: 0...

BACKGROUND: The lung clearance index (LCI) is a sensitive lung function index that is used to detect early lung disease changes in children with cystic fibrosis (CF). This study aimed to define the predictive role of baseline LCI, along with other potential factors on the change in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) during one-year follow-up in CF patients who had a percent predicted (pp) FEV1≥80. METHODS: LCI was concurrently performed on 57 CF patients who had ppFEV1 ≥80 at month zero...

BACKGROUND: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are rare in children and adolescents. Standard management of these tumors has not been well established due to their rarity in this age group. We aimed to report the clinical and pathological characteristics of patients with this rare disease followed and treated between the years 1993-2022. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of patients with GEP-NETs were reviewed. RESULTS: Fourteen patients (11 girls, 3 boys) were diagnosed with GEP-NET...

BACKGROUND: Hyperkalemia is one of the most serious electrolyte disturbances, and it can cause lethal cardiac arrhythmia. Although hyperkalemia associated with ileostomies has been reported in adults, to the best of our knowledge, it has not previously been reported in neonates. CASE: We report ileostomy‒induced hyperkalemia that persisted during the ileostomy and resolved promptly after the closure of the ileostomy in two extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants, with birth weights of 850 g and 840 g and gestational ages of 27 weeks and 27 weeks 6 days...

OBJECTIVE: Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is the most common cause of acquired heart disease in developing countries and remains a serious public health problem. In the subclinical course of carditis, the absence of typical symptoms and the normal range of classical echocardiographic measurements used to evaluate cardiac functions have required new echocardiographic methods and parameters. Previous studies regarding rheumatic heart disease in children and adults have shown that strain patterns obtained by speckle tracking echocardiography, are in fact affected although left ventricular systolic functions are preserved, yet some studies have suggested otherwise...

BACKGROUND: There is a need to identify the complex interplay between various physiological mechanisms in primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) and cystic fibrosis (CF). The study investigated the interaction between respiratory function, exercise capacity, muscle strength, and inflammatory and oxidant/antioxidant responses in patients with PCD and CF. METHODS: The study included 30 PCD patients, 30 CF patients, and 29 age and sex-matched healthy subjects. Exercise capacity was assessed using the modified shuttle walk test (MSWT)...

BACKGROUND: Myxedema coma is a rare, but life-threatening endocrinological emergency. Myxedema is characterized by altered mental status, and is accompanied by hypotension, bradycardia, hypothermia, bradypnea, hyporeflexia, hyponatremia, and hypoglycemia, all stemming from reduced metabolism due to severe hypothyroidism. Additionally, patients may exhibit signs of low cardiac output, edema in the extremities, peripheral circulatory disturbances, shock, and the development of pericardial and pleural effusions, ultimately leading to confusion and coma...

BACKGROUND: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is characterized by physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral symptoms that appear during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, disappear after menstruation, and are recurrent in every cycle. PMS significantly affects the social and academic lives of adolescents, and historically, it has been neglected by healthcare professionals. We aimed to evaluate the current point prevalence of PMS in Turkish adolescents presented to a tertiary adolescent medicine clinic...

BACKGROUND: Ureteroinguinal herniation is a rare occurrence that is typically diagnosed during the surgical repair of inguinal hernias. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a 4-year-old male who underwent inguinal hernia repair, during which a megaureter was discovered within the hernia sac. The surgical intervention included high ligation of the hernial sac and repositioning of the ureter back into the retroperitoneum. Postoperative investigations confirmed a diagnosis of primary non-refluxing and nonobstructive megaureter...

BACKGROUND: Hyaline fibromatosis syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by ANTXR2 pathogenic variants. The disorder is characterized by the deposition of amorphous hyaline material in connective tissues. The hallmarks of the disease are joint contractures, generalized skin stiffness, hyperpigmented papules over extensor surfaces of joints, fleshy perianal masses, severe diarrhea, and gingival hypertrophy. The severity of the disease varies and prognosis is poor. No specific treatment is yet available...

BACKGROUND: Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a serious cause of acute kidney injury in children. There is a suggestion that coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may be a trigger for HUS. In this study, we present a pediatric case diagnosed with HUS associated with COVID-19, which progressed to end-stage kidney disease. CASE: A previously healthy 13-year-old girl with fever and vomiting was referred to our hospital. Laboratory investigations revealed direct Coombs-negative hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia and renal impairment accompanied by COVID-19 infection...
