  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome: a Current Review
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review The diagnosis of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), a refractory epileptic encephalopathy, is often made late into disease progression based on the absence of classic EEG abnormalities or typical seizure types at disease onset. The goal of this article is to serve as a general review of LGS for the non-neurologist. As such, we hope to elucidate how a diagnosis is made, highlight novel treatment options, and encourage collaborative treatment decisions between care givers, primary care physicians, neurologists, and psychiatrists. Recent Findings Although a relatively limited number of randomized clinical trials have been performed to date, in recent years, two novel antiepileptics, rufinamide and clobazam, have shown promising efficacy in the treatment of this refractory epileptic encephalopathy. Summary Ideally, after reading this review, the non-neurologist will feel equipped to recognize suspicion for an epileptic encephalopathy in a pediatric patient and subsequently refer that child to an epileptologist.

  • An Updated, Evidence-Based Clinician’s Guide to the Evaluation and
           Treatment of West Syndrome
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review West syndrome (WS) is a rare disorder consisting of developmental regression, hypsarrhythmia, and infantile spasms. Over time, the clinical approach to this frequently debilitating epileptic encephalopathy has evolved considerably; however, the relative rarity of WS has made it challenging to study its evaluation, treatment, and neurodevelopmental outcome. The purpose of this review is to provide the practicing clinician with an evidence-based approach to WS. Recent Findings We focus on recent evidence that informs the clinician of the expected yield of diagnostic testing, including genetic evaluation, and a tiered approach both to the initial treatment and to treatment after relapse. Summary Hormonal therapy or vigabatrin remains the most effective therapies for the treatment of WS, particularly when treatment is initiated promptly. While history, examination, and neuroimaging can identify an etiology for the majority of cases of IS, genetic testing is the highest yield investigation for the remainder of patients.

  • Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review Pediatric multiple sclerosis (MS) is an under-diagnosed disease with profound lifelong morbidity. Early recognition is essential so that disease modifying therapies (DMT) can be started and can slow the rate of injury to the brain and spinal cord. This review aims to explore the emerging genetic and environmental risk factors for developing this multiphasic, demyelinating disease. We will also review the clinical and imaging findings of patients with MS, and we will discuss acute management of attacks as well as the newest options in chronic immunomodulatory therapies. Recent Findings Our understanding of the etiology of MS is expanding exponentially, although no single cause has emerged to date. In fact, recent studies have revealed that there is an increasingly complex path to developing MS. We will discuss the role of environmental influences including early viral exposure, Vitamin D levels, and the influence of the gut microbiome. Newer classes of DMTs target novel components of the immune response in an attempt to recalibrate the delicate autoimmunity-immune response balance. Summary Pediatric MS results from a complicated genetic and environmental interplay and requires a long-term immunomodulation in order to minimize accumulating, permanent damage to the central nervous system, and worsening lifelong disability.

  • Inherited Neuromuscular Disorders: Presentation, Diagnosis, and Advances
           in Treatment
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review This article reviews presentation of inherited neuromuscular disorders, including how to differentiate them from other causes of hypotonia and gross motor delay. Focus is on disorders that have, or may soon have, therapies to improve strength or slow down disease progression. Recent Findings With the recent explosion in genetic testing, the number of genes known to cause inherited neuromuscular disorders has increased exponentially in the last 10 years. Understanding the genetic basis has led to the potential for new therapeutics, aimed both at correcting the genetic deficiency and improving downstream factors to help improve overall function and health. Summary As new treatments for inherited neuromuscular disorders become available, the importance of early diagnosis will be more important than ever for some of these previously lethal disorders.

  • Finding Treatments for Genetic Metabolic Disease
    • Abstract: Genetic metabolic diseases are comprised of a vast array of single-gene disorders that affect critical cellular biochemical pathways. Various approaches have been taken to treating individual metabolic diseases, each aimed at mitigating specific biochemical pathway deficiencies through targeting facets of cellular function. These approaches include targeting at the gene, enzyme, and biochemical levels via methodologies such as direct gene modification, enzyme replacement therapy, substrate reduction therapy, cofactor administration, dietary management, and organ transplantation. In this review, an overview of each of these approaches will be provided, and representative therapies in each category will be discussed.

  • The New Findings in the Genetics and Pathology of Structural Brain
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review Many disorders involving the cerebral hemispheres have been identified and classified; however, in the last five years, significant progress has been made in the identification of genes involved in hindbrain development. Space constraints prohibit an exhaustive review of genetics of brain malformations encountered in the newborn. Rather, this review will address malformations of the corpus callosum, one of the more common malformations, and the hindbrain disorders, a less common entity. Recent Findings Neuroimaging of the brain is often one of the first steps in the determination of etiology and prognosis of an encephalopathic condition in the newborn. Structural anomalies of the brain are seen with some frequency in this setting. Due to the complex nature of cortical development, both genetic and non-genetic (environmental, toxins, etc.) factors may lead to a very similar pattern on MRI. In recent years, given the advances in genetic sequencing technologies as well as improvements in neuroimaging field, clarity, and technical advances in imaging sick and small infants, progress has been made to identify the genetic underpinnings of many cortical malformations. This has been particularly the case with regard to posterior fossa abnormalities. Summary Congenital malformations of the posterior fossa are relatively rare but are frequently more recognized, given the continuous improvements of neuroimaging. High-resolution genetic testing has led to identification of the etiology for some, but the cause of many still is elusive. Future application of high-resolution genetic testing such as whole exome sequencing will help identify other variants. MRI patterns may not sufficiently differentiate the clinical entities.

  • Novel Treatments for Established Food Allergies
    • Abstract: Purpose of review Current management of food-allergic children centres on allergen avoidance and emergency management of allergic reactions due to accidental ingestion. These measures minimise harm to patients, but the need for constant vigilance and dietary restriction may have a major long-term negative impact on quality of life. Recent findings Research has focused on searching for a curative treatment that can modify the natural history of disease. Both non-antigen-specific and antigen-specific immune modulation approaches have been explored. Oral immunotherapy (OIT) has drawn the greatest interest as a potential treatment for food allergy. OIT is effective at inducing desensitization; however, its ability to induce long-lasting tolerance or sustained unresponsiveness remains to be confirmed. There is growing evidence that the addition of immune-modifying adjuvants may enhance efficacy of OIT in inducing long-lasting sustained unresponsiveness. This article reviews recently published literature on this rapidly evolving field.

  • Testing the Complex Child: CGH Array, WES, Clinical Exome, WGS
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review The purpose of this review was to compare existing strategies for evaluation of complex paediatric patients with newer techniques. Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) array is the currently accepted first tier genetic test in the evaluation of a pediatric patient with complex physical and developmental anomalies. CGH provides an answer in only 15–20 % cases, and further genetic testing is required in the majority of cases. This has previously involved sequential single-gene tests, with low yield, significant costs and delay in diagnosis. Summary of Recent Findings New genetic techniques allowing massively parallel sequencing of multiple genes are becoming a part of medical practice as they provide a reduction in cost and time. Current medical practice supports the use of limited genomic testing—‘gene panels’ and ‘clinical exomes’, as a second tier approach after CGH array testing. These approaches have already been shown to improve the diagnostic yield providing an answer for an additional 25 % of patients. Ultimately, it is likely that whole genome sequencing as a single genomic test could replace CGH array and more restricted genomic tests, as research experience is translated into medical practice. Several factors need to be overcome to make this a reality to ensure equitable access to a reliable test with appropriate diagnostic interpretation.

  • Natural History of Eosinophilic Oesophagitis in Childhood
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review Paediatric eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE), first described in the 1990s, has emerged as a distinctive chronic inflammatory disease which is now recognised as a major cause of feeding problems in children. Despite the recognition of the clinical importance of EoE, the natural history of this disorder remains unclear, as does understanding of its immunopathogenesis, which makes it difficult to make long-term treatment recommendations. The purpose of this paper is to review available information on the natural history of EoE, including the underlying mechanisms and the consequences of ongoing inflammation. Recent Findings EoE appears to be increasing in incidence and prevalence in westernised societies in keeping with its close association with food allergy and atopic disorders. There are no reliable non-invasive biomarkers for diagnosis or ongoing assessment of disease activity. Treatment is aimed at resolution of clinical symptoms and more controversially at resolution of eosinophilic inflammation. Without therapy, ongoing oesophageal inflammation results in fibrosis and stricture formation but the rate at which these complications occur is not yet known. Summary Without a good understanding of the natural history of EoE in childhood and the transition to adulthood, it is difficult to make long-term treatment recommendations. Many of the unresolved questions in childhood EoE relate to the natural history of the disease, particularly the potential for progression to fibrosis and stricture formation. Without good population-based studies and large, prospective treatment studies in children with EoE, recommendations for goals of therapy, monitoring, effective maintenance treatment and prevention of complications will remain difficult if not impossible.

  • Infectious Diseases in Refugee Children: To Screen or Not to Screen
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review To review the evidence on cost-effectiveness of screening refugee children for latent tuberculosis infection, soil-associated helminths, malaria, chronic hepatitis B infection and human immunodeficiency virus infection. Recent Findings There is strong epidemiologic evidence that it is likely to be cost-effective to screen refugee children from endemic areas for tuberculosis, hepatitis B, HIV infection and schistosomiasis. The evidence to support cost-effectiveness of screening for strongyloides infection is weak and for malaria is unknown. Summary Screening of refugee children for infections should be based on best available evidence of cost-effectiveness.

  • Timing of Introduction of Solids and Early-Onset Allergic Disease
    • Abstract: Purpose of review The ‘ideal’ age to commence introduction to any solid foods, or specific ‘more allergenic’ foods, as an allergy prevention strategy has been debated for the last two decades. Recent findings Observational studies have indicated that introducing any solid foods prior to four months of age was associated with an increased risk of allergic disease. On the other hand, delayed introduction (beyond 6–10 months) of ‘more allergenic’ foods (including dairy foods, fish and egg) has also been associated with an increased risk of allergies. More recently, three randomised controlled trials have suggested that there is no reason to delay the introduction of the ‘more allergenic’ foods after solid foods have commenced, and have provided some data to suggest that sensitisation may occur at a much earlier stage. Summary Strategies to prevent early-life food allergen sensitisation prior to commencement of solid foods are needed and should be the focus of future research.

  • What is New in the Diagnosis and Management of Food Protein-Induced
           Enterocolitis Syndrome'
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review Many aspects of food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) remain poorly studied, such as its pathophysiology, dietary management, biomarkers for diagnosis and onset of tolerance. Research in the last decade has steadily advanced our knowledge of the condition. We review the recent literature in relation to the diagnosis and management of FPIES. Recent Findings FPIES is predominantly a paediatric non-IgE-mediated gastrointestinal food allergic disorder. Infants typically present with delayed profuse vomiting, pallor and floppiness 2–4 h after ingesting a newly introduced food. Some cases can be severe, with associated impaired consciousness, hypotension and/or hypothermia. Common triggers include cow’s milk, soy, rice and egg. The prognosis of the condition is generally excellent, with most outgrowing the condition by early childhood. Recent studies elucidate epidemiological variations, which have aided the development of upcoming international consensus guidelines on the diagnosis and management of FPIES. Summary Much remains to be understood about FPIES. Current and upcoming research along with efforts to form consensus-based guidelines will help clinicians in diagnosing acute FPIES from other more common paediatric conditions.

  • The Epidemiology of Food Allergy
    • Abstract: Purpose of Review The past few years have seen an exponential increase in publications on the topic of IgE-mediated food allergy. Recent publications have greatly advanced our understanding of the global prevalence of food allergy, and have revealed new insights into risk factors for food allergy. In this article, we will review these recent developments, summarise the current state of knowledge of the epidemiology of IgE-mediated food allergy, and outline areas of ongoing research where gaps in evidence remain. Recent Findings Recent publications reveal substantial differences in food allergy prevalence between countries. Data show that the incidence of food-induced anaphylaxis in developed countries continues to rise, particularly in children, although it remains unclear to what extent this is due to an increase in food allergy prevalence, or an increase in severe reactions among allergic individuals, or both. There has been considerable progress in understanding risk factors for food allergy. In particular, there is now good evidence that delayed introduction of peanut increases the risk of developing peanut allergy in infants with pre-existing risk factors for peanut allergy. A shift towards earlier introduction of peanut in these infants, now starting to be recommended in allergy prevention guidelines, may help to prevent peanut allergy in future generations. Summary Recent studies have defined the prevalence of food allergy in different regions of the world. These studies provide strong baseline data to measure the extent to which new food allergy prevention strategies, including recommending timely peanut introduction for high-risk infants, change the prevalence of childhood food allergy.

  • Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis in Children: Recent Developments in
           Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention
    • Abstract: Purpose of review Multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) threatens global TB control. Few children with MDR-TB are diagnosed and appropriately treated; this is related to difficulties confirming a diagnosis of TB disease and challenges with current treatment regimens. This review highlights recent developments in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of MDR-TB in children. Recent findings Although phenotypic drug susceptibility testing (DST) remains the gold standard, molecular DST methods are facilitating rapid confirmation of MDR-TB. Increased knowledge about correct paediatric dosing of existing drugs and the addition of new and repurposed drugs is improving treatment. Observational studies support the effectiveness of preventing disease in MDR-TB-exposed contacts. Summary Although challenges remain, there have been many exciting developments in the diagnosis and treatment of MDR-TB in children; it is a priority to continue improving MDR-TB care and to improve access for children. Preventive therapy following MDR-TB exposure/infection is a promising strategy under evaluation.
