BACKGROUND: Late-presenting congenital diaphragmatic hernia occurs beyond the neonatal period, and is relatively rare, presenting with nonspecific respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms. CASE: We report a rare case of late-presenting congenital diaphragmatic hernia in a 7-year-old girl, who presented with abdominal pain, shortness of breath and fever on admission. Work-up revealed intrathoracic gastric perforation, acute pancreatitis and septic shock with a diaphragmatic defect...

BACKGROUND: Intravascular hemolysis is a serious and rare condition in children and causes the release of hemoglobin and heme into circulation, which have proinflammatory properties. These substances lead to inflammation, oxidative stress, apoptosis, and organelle dysfunction that lead to acute kidney injury (AKI). We report a pediatric case diagnosed with hemolysis-associated hemoglobin cast nephropathy due to autoimmune hemolytic anemia. CASE: A 4-year-old boy, who was admitted to another hospital with complaints of fever and dark urine for one day, developed anemia and kidney failure in the follow-up, was referred to our hospital...

BACKGROUND: IgA vasculitis (IgAV) is a multisystemic small vessel vasculitis and is the most common vasculitis in childhood. The characteristic findings of IgAV are palpable purpuric rash, abdominal pain, arthralgia or arthritis, and hematuria. Ischemic complications are very rare in IgAV. Thrombotic complications can be observed after a COVID-19 infection. Also in the presence of familial Mediterranean fever, IgAV may have an atypical or more severe course. CASE: We present a case of IgAV complicated with renal infarction and intestinal ischemia...

BACKGROUND: Leprosy in children is a strong indicator of the recent failure of leprosy control and disease transmission programs. For twenty-two years, leprosy has been declared `eliminated as a public health hazard,` yet new cases continue to emerge in endemic areas. The new case detection rate among the child population was recorded at 4.4 per million children. Because of their underdeveloped or neonatal immunity and exposure to intrafamilial contacts, children tend to be the most vulnerable population...

REVIEW
Serkan Bilge Koca
BACKGROUND: Familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH) is one of the conditions that should be considered in the differential diagnosis of hypercalcemia and normo-hypophosphatemia in childhood. Heterozygous Calcium-sensing receptor (CASR) gene mutations cause FHH, and homozygous CASR gene mutations cause neonatal severe primary hyperparathyroidism (NSHPT). Cinacalcet is an allosteric modulator of Calciumsensing receptor (CaSR), and has been used in the treatment of these clinical entities in recent years...

BACKGROUND: Telomeres inhibit DNA damage response at the ends of the chromosome to suppress cell cycle arrest as well as ensure genome stability. Dyskeratosis congenita (DC), a telomere-related disease, includes the classical triad involving oral leukoplakia, dysplastic nails, and lacy reticular pigment in the neck and/or upper chest. Hoyeraal-Hreidarrson syndrome (HHS), a severe manifestation of DC, frequently occurs during childhood, and patients with HHS often show short-term survival and thus do not exhibit all mucocutaneous manifestations or syndromic features...

BACKGROUND: Every year, thousands of donors are exposed to granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) for stem cell mobilization in hematopoietic stem cell transplantations (HSCT). Previous studies about the genotoxicity of G-CSF were inconclusive. In this study, the genotoxic effects of G-CSF in peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) donors were evaluated prospectively by using three different validated and reliable methods for the first time in the literature to the best of our knowledge...
