Hyaline fibromatosis syndrome is an extremely rare autosomal recessive condition caused by biallelic pathogenic variants in the ANTXR2 gene that leads to abnormal growth of hyalinized fibrous tissue. Severity ranges from life-threatening intractable diarrhea, recurrent infection, and acute pain to milder disease resulting in skin lesions and less severe contractures. Here, we report the case of a 3-month-old female who presented with joint contractures and severe pain followed by failure to thrive. Diagnosis via ultra-rapid whole genome sequencing allowed our team to provide appropriate care and anticipatory guidance for this patient and family...

INTRODUCTION: The knowledge of barriers from the parental perspective is essential for facilitating shared decision-making in the field of pediatric asthma. METHOD: Participants who were parents of children with a diagnosis of asthma were recruited, and in-depth, semistructured interviews were conducted. The interview transcripts were analyzed thematically using framework methods. RESULTS: Seventeen participants undertook interviews. Three themes and nine subthemes emerged: (1) decision-making need level-limited understanding of decision-making knowledge, ambiguity regarding self-empowerment roles, and lack of family member support; (2) decision-making support level-insufficient ability to evaluate information, inefficient communication with health care professionals, and excessive use of professional terminology; and (3) decision-making outcome level-doubts about the final decision-making choices, time constraints on decision-making, and absence of mechanisms to track decisions made...
