BACKGROUND: Knowing and seeking medical attention for neonatal danger signs has many benefits for reducing neonatal morbidity and death. Despite numerous interventions that have been made to raise mothers' awareness about neonatal danger signs, the desired level of knowledge has not yet been reached in Ethiopia. OBJECTIVE: To assess the level of knowledge of neonatal danger signs and associated factors among postpartum mothers in public hospitals in the Eastern Amhara region, northeastern Ethiopia...

BACKGROUND: Children of mothers with chronic-hypertension in pregnancy have high rates of preterm-birth (<37 weeks of gestation) and small-for-gestational-age (SGA), both of which are risk factors of cerebral palsy (CP). This study investigated the cumulative risks of CP in children exposed to maternal chronic-hypertension vs. other types of hypertensive-disorders-of-pregnancy (HDP), and whether preterm-birth and SGA potentiate the antenatal impact of chronic-hypertension to increase CP hazards...

BACKGROUND: Data on SARSCoV-2 infection in children with hematological malignancies (HM) are limited. Here, we describe the clinical features of children with HM after SARS-CoV-2 infection and investigate the potential risk factors for disease severity. METHODS: Children with HM and SARS-CoV-2 infection from five hospitals in five cities in Henan, China from October 2022 to January 2023 were retrospectively included. Clinical information and Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination status were collected for further analyses...

BACKGROUND: Newborns with critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) with increased pulmonary blood flow (PBF) are at high risk for congestive heart failure. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the presence and degree of pulmonary edema in newborns with CCHD using lung ultrasound (LUS) during the perioperative period. METHODS: Prospective clinical trial, 44 newborn patients with CCHD were evaluated in this prospective clinical trial. LUS was repeatedly performed to determine the course of pulmonary edema during the perioperative period...

OBJECTIVE: To study the relationship between umbilical cord blood vitamin A (VA) and neonatal lung diseases and explore the impact of umbilical cord blood VA on neonatal lung diseases. METHOD: Umbilical vein blood was collected at birth, and its VA content was measured. According to the VA levels in umbilical cord blood, a VA deficiency (VAD) group, a marginal deficiency group and a normal group were created and followed up until 28 days after birth. RESULTS: The umbilical cord blood VA level in the neonatal group with lung disease was 0...

BACKGROUND: Over the past few decades, allergic diseases have become more prevalent and impact around 20% of the global population. There is clinical significance of allergic march as it places a burden on the quality of life of children and their families. OBJECTIVES: To assess the current situation of allergy conditions experienced by children attending elementary and junior high schools in Oyama and Tochigi cities, Japan. METHODS: A letter was sent to parents informing them about an opt-in online survey concerning children's allergies along with a weblink and a QR code...

BACKGROUND: The objectives were to evaluate the descriptive features of newborns with a diagnosis of Rhesus (Rh) hemolytic disease, to determine the morbidity and mortality rates, to evaluate the treatment methods and the factors affecting treatment requirements and clinical outcomes during a ten-year period at a tertiary center. METHODS: Newborn infants who had a positive direct Coombs test and/or had a history of intrauterine transfusion (IUT) due to Rh hemolytic disease were included...

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency and variants of the UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A1 (UGT1A1) gene are the most common genetic causes of neonatal unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia (NUH). In this review, we searched PubMed for articles on the genetic causes of NUH published before December 31, 2022, and analyzed the data. On the basis of the results, we reached eight conclusions: (1) 37 mutations of the G6PD gene are associated with NUH; (2) the clinical manifestation of G6PD deficiency depends not only on ethnicity but also on the molecular mechanisms underlying the deficiency (and thus its severity); (3) of mutations in the UGT1A1 gene, homozygous c...

BACKGROUND: Globally, an estimated 36.9 million (31.1-43.9 million) people were living with HIV in 2017, of whom 17.8 million were women and 1.8 million (1.3-2.4 million) children under 15 years of age. Ethiopia has developed an HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment strategic plan in an investment case approach that has been implemented from 2015 to 2020. The study aim was to assess the outcome and risk factors for HIV-exposed infants receiving Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) follow-up...
