  • Relationships between emotional disorders, personality dimensions, and
           binge eating disorder in French obese adolescents
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): C. Carriere, G. Michel, C. Féart, H. Pellay, O. Onorato, P. Barat, H. ThibaultAbstractPurposeBinge eating disorder (BED) is associated with higher psychopathology, including emotional and personality disorders, in the adult population, whether or not they are obese; although few data are available on adolescents, particularly among obese adolescents.ObjectiveTo explore the association of both emotional disorders and personality dimensions with BED in obese adolescents.MethodsThe sample consisted of 115 French adolescents enrolled at a clinical unit for the multidisciplinary care of their overweight or obesity. BED was defined using the Binge Eating Scale (BES). Emotional disorders and personality dimensions were assessed using the following tools: Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), Junior Temperament and Character Inventory (JTCI); impulsivity was determined by the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS) and the Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS). Associations between emotional disorders (BDI/BAI) and personality dimensions (TAS/BIS/JTCI), considered first separately and then jointly with BED were determined with multivariate analysis.ResultsMore severe depression (β=0.27, CI [0.06; 0.48], P = 0.011), a higher level of excess weight (β=1.91, CI [0.22; 3.59], P = 0.027), older age (β=1.28, CI [0.43; 2.14], P = 0.003), and greater cooperativeness (β=0.36, CI [0.07; 0.66], P = 0.017) were independently significantly associated with the presence of BED.ConclusionsThis cross-sectional study underlines the co-occurrence of emotional and personality disorders with BED. This points out the importance of a multidisciplinary approach and the relevance of a joint diagnosis of binge eating, emotional disorders, and personality dimensions in obese adolescents, for better prevention and treatment of pediatric obesity.
  • Compressive chylothorax after lumbar spine fracture
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): P. Meignan, W. Lakhal, A. Binet, A. Le Touze, B. De Courtivron, H. Lardy, C. Bonnard, T. OdentAbstractA 14-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital after an episode of blunt trauma to the thorax, resulting in a Chance fracture of L1 and a compressive chylothorax 72 h after admission. After initial drainage in the operating room, conservative management was successful. This case study documents one of the rare complications of spinal fractures in the context of high-energy blunt trauma. It is the first detailing a noniatrogenic post-traumatic compressive chylothorax in pediatrics responding positively to conservative management. Drainage should be considered the first-line procedure for both therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. Surgery is required if the leakage is still present after parenteral feeding and the implementation of a fat-free diet for 5–7 days.
  • School-age human figure drawings by very preterm infants: Validity of the
           Draw-a-Man test to detect behavioral and cognitive disorders
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): C. Chollat, A. Joly, E. Houivet, J. Bénichou, S. MarretAbstractDetecting an abnormal developmental trajectory in very preterm infants remains challenging. The objective of this study was to determine the correlation between the Draw-a-Man test (DAMT) and behavioral and cognitive disabilities in very preterm infants. From the school-age follow-up of the Premag study, which evaluated the neuroprotective effect of prenatal magnesium sulfate before 33 weeks of gestation, 281 human figure drawings were assessed (mean age, 11 years). Behavioral and cognitive disabilities were associated with delayed DAMTs but test performance indicators were insufficient to use DAMT as a screening or a diagnostic test.
  • Family history of atopy in infants with cow's milk protein allergy: A
           French population-based study
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): N. Kalach, M. Bellaïche, I. Elias-Billon, C. DupontAbstractObjectivesThis French multicenter, cross-sectional, observational study aimed to describe the family history of atopy in infants with cow's milk protein allergy (CMPA), and the related diagnostic approaches used by specialists in a real-life ambulatory setting.Patients and methodsIn total, 1674 infants with suspected CMPA [median age 4.5 months (range: 0.1–18.0), males 54%] were enrolled in the study by 466 private physicians (pediatricians: 97%). Family history of atopy was defined as a known history of atopy in at least one first- (father, mother, and/or sibling) and/or second-degree relative (grandparents, uncles, and aunts), as reported by parents to physicians.ResultsAtopy in a first-degree relative was more common among infants with documented or high probability of CMPA (in 84% and 80% of cases, respectively, vs. the other subgroups, P = 0.005). Most infants experienced digestive (92%) and skin (61%) symptoms suggestive of CMPA. Delayed reactions were reported in 64% of infants. According to a post-classification based on the results of previous diagnostic tests and procedures, 1133 infants (68%) had highly probable (52%) or documented CMPA (16%). In these infants, a history of atopy was reported in first- and/or second-degree relative(s) in 86% of cases (81% in first-degree relatives). Whatever the family history of atopy, the characteristics of the infants were similar, except for fewer pets in the case of negative family atopy (14% vs. 25%, P 
  • Impact of a sports project centered on scuba diving for adolescents with
           type 1 diabetes mellitus: New guidelines for adolescent recreational
           diving, a modification of the French regulations
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): B. Lormeau, S. Pichat, L. Dufaitre, A. Chamouine, M. Gataa, J. Rastami, C. Coll-Lormeau, G. Goury, A.-L. François, V. Etien, J.-L. Blanchard, D. Hervé, A. Sola-GazagnesAbstractBackgroundRecreational scuba diving has been authorized for type 1 diabetics over 18 years old – the age of majority in France – since 2004, but it remained forbidden for younger diabetics by the French underwater federation (FFESSM). Here, we present a study to evaluate:– the conditions under which diving could be authorized for 14- to 18 year olds with type 1 diabetes;– the value of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) while diving. A secondary objective was to monitor the impact of diving on the teenagers’ quality of life.Subject and methodsSixteen adolescents (14–17.5 years old) were included. Diabetes was known for 6 years (range, 1–14) and Hb1Ac was 9.0% (range, 7.7–11.9). The study was conducted in Mayotte with both capillary glycemia (CG) and CGM measurements taken during five dives.ResultsThe average CG prior to diving was 283 mg/dL and decreased by 75 ± 76 mg/dL during the dive. No hypoglycemia occurred during the dives and four episodes occurred after. Glycemia variations during dives and for the overall duration of the study were greater than for adults, most likely due to the general adolescent behavior, notably regarding diet and diabetes management. CGM was greatly appreciated by the adolescents. They had an overall satisfactory quality of life. No significant variations were observed during the entire course of the study.ConclusionsAlthough in need of further studies, these preliminary results show that CGM can be used while diving. CGM records show a continuous decrease of glycemia during dives. Based on these results, the French underwater federation has now authorized diving for adolescent type 1 diabetics following a specific diving protocol that includes HbA1c  250 mg/dL.
  • Postsurgery analgesic and sedative drug use in a French neonatal intensive
           care unit: A single-center retrospective cohort study
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): A. Benahmed-Canat, F. Plaisant, B. Riche, M. Rabilloud, G. Canat, N. Paret, O. Claris, B. Kassai, K.A. NguyenAbstractObjectiveTo describe pain assessment, the pattern of analgesic and sedative drug use, and adverse drug reactions in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) during the postsurgery phase.MethodDemographic characteristics, pain scores, and drug use were extracted and analyzed from electronic patient medical files for infants after surgery, admitted consecutively between January 2012 and June 2013.ResultOne hundred and sixty-eight infants were included. Acute (DAN score) and prolonged (EDIN score) pain assessment scores were used in 79% and 64% of infants, respectively, on the 1st day. This percentage decreased over the 7 days following surgery. The weekly average scores postsurgery were 2/15 (±2.2) for the EDIN score and 1.6/10 (±2.0) for the DAN score. The rates of pain control were 88% for the EDIN and 72% for the DAN. The most prescribed opiate drug was fentanyl (98 patients; 58%) with an average dose of 1.8 (±0.6) μg/kg/h. Midazolam was used in 95 patients (56%), with an average dose of 35 (±14) μg/kg/h. A bolus was administered in 7% (±7.4) of the total dose for fentanyl and 8% (±9.3) for midazolam. Similar doses were used in term and preterm neonates. Of 118 patients receiving fentanyl and/or midazolam, 40% presented urinary retention, 28% a weaning syndrome. Paracetamol (155 patients; 92%) and nalbuphine (55 patients; 33%) were the other medications most often prescribed.ConclusionThe off-label use of fentanyl and midazolam was necessary to treat pain after surgery. Pain assessment should be conducted for all neonates in order to optimize their treatment. Research on analgesic and sedative medicine in vulnerable neonates seems necessary to standardize practices and reduce adverse drug reactions.
  • Pediatric neurolisteriosis: A diagnosis to consider even in the absence of
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): L. Picard, Z. Maakaroun-Vermesse, C. Hoarau, P. Castelnau, M. PérivierAbstractNeurolisteriosis is known to affect vulnerable groups, for example neonates or children with immunodeficiency. This is a key point of the current clinical guidelines regarding pediatric meningitis. We report a rare case of neurolisteriosis in an immunocompetent infant, without the typical signs of listeriosis, which led to a delay in administering the appropriate antibiotherapy. This case illustrates the clinical heterogeneity of neurolisteriosis and the relevance of appropriate polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests when the clinical presentation differs from the current guidelines. This case also reminds us that raw or unpasteurized milk-based food products pose a risk even in immunocompetent infants or children.
  • Lyme neuroborreliosis in children: Report of nine cases and a review of
           the literature
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): H. Guet-Revillet, C. Levy, C. Vallet, V. Maghraoui-Slim, M.-A. Dommergues, V. Hentgen, C. Paget, V. Laugel, R. Cohen, A. FerroniAbstractLyme neuroborreliosis is a bacterial infection caused by the dissemination and proliferation of a Borrelia species in the central nervous system. Neuroborreliosis occurs after transmission of the pathogen from an infected tick to a human host during a tick bite. We report nine cases of pediatric neuroborreliosis collected by the National Observatory of Pediatric Bacterial Meningitis in France between 2001 and 2012. The nine children, aged 4–13 years, were identified in northern and eastern France and had the following clinical features: meningeal irritation alone or with facial palsy, or isolated facial palsy. All cases showed anti-Borrelia antibodies in cerebrospinal fluid or serum, or with a positive Borrelia PCR in the CSF. The outcome was favorable in all cases after a 2- to 3-week course of third-generation cephalosporin. On the basis of these nine pediatric cases, this study provides an update on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic strategy, and treatment of neuroborreliosis, with insight into the specific features of pediatric neuroborreliosis and the difficulties encountered in the diagnosis of this infection.

  • Eosinophilic esophagitis: Pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): C. Vinit, A. Dieme, S. Courbage, C. Dehaine, C.M. Dufeu, S. Jacquemot, M. Lajus, L. Montigny, E. Payen, D.D. Yang, C. DupontAbstractEosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a multifactorial esophageal inflammation, with a genetic predisposition, which combines a deficient esophageal mucosal barrier, an abnormal immune reaction to environmental allergens mediated by Th2 interleukins, immediate esophageal lesions and dysmotility, with secondary remodeling and fibrosis. Symptoms include reflux, abdominal pain, and food impaction, with a variation according to age. Fibroscopy shows major and minor endoscopic and histologic criteria, with a mucosal count ≥ 15 eosinophils/high power field (Eo/hpf). A new entity has been defined, where gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and EoE share responsibility: the PPIs-sensitive form of EoE (PPI-REE). Children with fibroscopy showing ≥ 15 Eo/hpf need a second endoscopy following 8 weeks of PPI treatment. EoE has a strong association with other atopic disorders. Allergy testing (specific IgE blood test and skin prick tests [SPTs]) identifies patients at risk of anaphylaxis (14.8% of cases). The dietary therapy is based on a 4- to 12-week elimination test followed by endoscopy to check the disappearance of eosinophilic infiltration. The “dietary approaches are the amino acid-based formula, the allergy testing-based targeted diet, and the six-food elimination diet (empirical elimination of milk, wheat, soy, eggs, peanut/nuts, and fish/seafood). A recent first-line trial elimination of milk has been suggested, with wheat as a second elimination, if necessary. Dietary therapy allows remission and catch-up growth in 65% of cases. Swallowed topical steroids (budesonide in viscous gel or fluticasone propionate for nebulization) are an alternative, for which efficacy varies according to clinical and/or histological criteria and with relapses occurring at dosage tapering. Their use may be restricted by side effects, such as oral and/or esophageal candidiasis. The impact on long-term bone health and growth is unknown. Maintenance therapy is not standardized and is team-dependent, combining or not elimination diets and long-term steroids. The long-term risk of EoE is esophageal stenosis (25%) and endoscopic dilation may be repeated. Biotherapies have shown isolated histological improvement without significant clinical efficacy.
  • An unusual cause of cardiac failure in a neonate
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): W. Kojmane, F. Hmami, S. AtmaniAbstractWe report the case of a newborn admitted with signs of congestive cardiac failure with prominent and pulsatile cervical veins. Echocardiography showed a structurally normal heart, right-to-left ductal flow, and reversed diastolic flow in the proximal descending aorta. A computed-tomography scan of the head showed a vein of Galen arteriovenous malformation. This highlights the importance of considering an intracranial cause in the differential diagnosis of neonatal congestive heart failure.
  • Pediatric bone evaluation with HR-pQCT: A comparison between standard and
           height-adjusted positioning protocols in a cohort of teenagers with
           chronic kidney disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): M. Vierge, E. Preka, T. Ginhoux, R. Chapurlat, B. Ranchin, J. BacchettaAbstractBackgroundHigh-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) evaluates different components of bone fragility. The positioning and length of the region of interest (ROI) in growing populations remain to be defined.MethodsUsing HR-pQCT at the ultradistal tibia, we compared a single-center cohort of 28 teenagers with chronic kidney disease (CKD) at a median age of 13.6 (range, 10.2–19.9) years to local age-, gender-, and puberty-matched healthy peers. Because of the potential impact of short stature, bone parameters were assessed on two different leg-length-adjusted ROIs in comparison to the standard analysis, namely the one applied in adults. The results are presented as median (range).ResultsAfter matching, SDS height was −0.9 (−3.3;1.6) and 0.3 (−1.4;2.0) in patients and controls, respectively (P 
  • Ingestion of neodymium magnet spheres: Three case studies
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 March 2019Source: Archives de PédiatrieAuthor(s): A. Lemoine, N. Mamann, M. Larroquet, P. Tounian, S. Irtan, J. LemaleAbstractWe report three pediatric cases of two, five, and 12 neodymium magnet spheres ingested simultaneously. In two cases, endoscopic extraction failed because of the strength of the magnetic attraction and a gastrotomy was performed to remove all magnets. In the third case, the magnets were not accessible endoscopically and were removed by laparotomy. We wish to warn consumer groups and pediatricians about the danger of neodymium magnets.

This study aimed to describe the epidemiological aspects of burns in this environment and to propose preventive measures.Patients and methodsA retrospective study was conducted between 1 January 2012 and 31 December 2013. It included children less than 16 years old who were hospitalized for burn injuries in our department. We adopted the hospitalization criteria proposed by the French Society for the Study and Treatment of Burns. The data were collected from medical records and concerned both patients and burn characteristics.ResultsWe recorded 67 cases, with 44.7% under 4 years old and boys (61%) more involved than girls (39%). The incidence of burns peaked in winter (31%) and summer (27%). Burns occurred at home in 95% of the cases. Hot liquids were the leading cause of children's burns. The time lapse between the accident and admission to the hospital was less than 24 h in 57% of the cases. The average total body surface area (TBSA) burned was 8.8%. Only five patients presented a TBSA ≥ 20%. The depth of the burns was superficial second-degree burns in 59% of cases. The burn involved mainly the upper limbs (65%). The average length of the hospital stay was 20.5 days. Only one patient died from severe sepsis.ConclusionThe lack of specialized burn centers in Tunisia associated with the low socioeconomic level of our population worsened the outcome of pediatric burns. The best solution lies in prevention.
  • Opsoclonus in a child with neuroborreliosis: Case report and review of the
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): M. Gibaud, O. Pauvert, S. Gueden, J. Durigneux, P. Van BogaertAbstractOpsoclonus consists of massive erratic rapid eye jerks. They may occur in isolation or in association with myoclonus and ataxia, i.e., opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome (OMS). We report the case of a 9-year-old girl who suffered from headaches for several days and was shown to have opsoclonus and left peripheral facial palsy. Work-up excluded the diagnosis of neuroblastoma, but CSF analysis showed aseptic meningitis, and serology for Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme) was positive. The outcome was favorable with complete regression of symptoms after treatment with ceftriaxone 2 g/day for 3 weeks. Although rare, the diagnosis of Lyme neuroborreliosis must be raised in the presence of isolated opsoclonus, particularly if the clinical picture is incomplete and if other features, such as peripheral facial palsy and pleocytosis in the CSF, are present.

    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): C. Hobson, Z. Maakaroun, K. Dieckmann, L. Bernard, J. Amsellem-Jager, A. LemaignenAbstractBackgroundParental hesitancy in immunization is an emerging and concerning problem owing to the serious consequences of a lack of vaccination. Few tools are available to combat this phenomenon.AimsTo evaluate the interest of parents in recording the vaccine schedule on a common consumer product as a solution to prevent immunization oversight.MethodWe conducted a preliminary prospective and monocentric study, in a parental population, using surveys to evaluate interest in this solution, and to define the sociodemographic characteristics of our population. Our population was clustered into three groups: against immunization, hesitant/negligent, and pro-immunization. This solution was evaluated using a univariate model between fearful and confident populations in respect of immunization, associated with a descriptive analysis of the population against immunization.ResultsOf 825 surveys distributed, 709 were analyzed. There were 47 parents against immunization (6.6%), 284 hesitant/negligent parents (40%), and 378 pro-immunization parents (53.3%). We showed that the hesitant/negligent population reported more difficulties in remembering the immunization schedule (P 
  • Acute gingivostomatitis in children: Epidemiology in the emergency
           department, pain, and use of codeine before its restriction
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): N. de Suremain, R. Guedj, A. Fratta, A. Franclin, S. Loschi, J. Aroulandom, R. CarbajalAbstractAcute gingivostomatitis is relatively frequent in children; of viral origin, its diagnosis is usually straightforward. Acute gingivostomatitis is very painful and for many years, codeine, whose use was restricted in 2013, was widely employed in this context. The aim of this study was to ascertain the prevalence of acute stomatitis in pediatric emergency care, to evaluate the pain caused by stomatitis, and to determine the analgesic resources deployed both in the emergency department and at discharge, over the 5-year period preceding restriction of the use of codeine.MethodsThis was a retrospective study conducted in a pediatric emergency department (PED) of a university hospital between August 2008 and June 2013.ResultsA total of 702 children (372 herpetic gingivostomatitis [HGS], 149 herpangina [H], 181 hand, foot, and mouth disease [HFMD]) were included. Over the 5 years, one case of gingivostomatitis was identified for 303 visits to the PED. A total of 548 (78.1%) children were aged less than 36 months and the median age was 22 months. For 501 of 702 (71.4%) children, parents reported pain and/or feeding difficulties; in the HGS group, 314 of 372 (84.4%) patients had these symptoms. Of the 702 children, 48 (6.8%) were admitted to hospital. Overall, 457 (65.1%) of 702 children were given codeine before the PED visit, during the PED visit, or as a medication to take after discharge. The corresponding figures were 314 of 372 (84.4%) for the HGS group, 67 of 149 (45.0%) for the H group, and 76 of 181 (42.0%) for the HFMD group, P

           children with sub-optimal glucose control on multiple daily injections:
           The pediatric DIACCOR study
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): S. Picard, E. Bonnemaison-Gilbert, E. Leutenegger, P. BaratAbstractBackgroundThe impact of 7-day real-time continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM) on type 1 diabetes (T1D) management remains unknown in youths with suboptimal control by multiple daily injections (MDI). The DIACCOR Study aimed to describe treatment decisions and glucose outcomes after a short-term RT-CGM sequence in real-life conditions.MethodsThis French multicenter longitudinal observational study included T1D youths with HbA1c > 7.5% or a history of severe hypoglycemia (SH) or recurrent documented hypoglycemia. A sensor was inserted at the study-inclusion visit, and one of three predefined treatment changes was proposed by the investigator within 7–15 days: INT = MDI intensification, CSII = switch to continuous insulin infusion, or ER = educational reinforcement with no change in insulin regimen and a 4-month follow-up visit (M4) was scheduled.ResultsA total of 229 children (12.2 ± 3.5 years old) were recruited by 74 pediatricians; 12.8% had a history of SH, 22.2% had recurrent hypoglycemia. Baseline HbA1c was 8.7 ± 1.5% (> 7.5% in 82.8%). Overall, 139 (79.4%), 19 (10.9%), and 17 patients (9.7%) were, respectively, included in the INT, CSII, and ER subgroups. At M4, the global incidence of SH and recurrent hypoglycemia dropped (3.4% vs. 12.8% and 6.0% vs. 22.2%, respectively) as well as the incidence of ketoacidosis (2.1% vs. 8.1%) or ketosis (6.9% vs. 11.4%). The HbA1c decrease was significant overall and in the INT subgroup (adjusted difference −0.29%, P = 0.009). The satisfaction rate was ≥ 93.0% among children.ConclusionIn a real-life setting, a 1-week RT-CGM can promote treatment optimization in youths with uncontrolled T1D resulting mostly in less acute events. CGM acceptance may improve with new-generation sensors.
  • Additional Tunisian patients with Sanjad–Sakati syndrome: A review
           toward a consensus on diagnostic criteria
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): A. Touati, S. Nouri, Y. Halleb, S. Kmiha, J. Mathlouthi, A. Tej, N. Mahdhaoui, A. Ben Ahmed, A. Saad, C. Bensignor, D. H’mida Ben BrahimAbstractBackground and objectivesSanjad–Sakati syndrome (SSS; OMIM 241410) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder found almost exclusively in people of Arab origin. It is characterized by congenital hypoparathyroidism, severe prenatal and postnatal growth retardation, and distinct facial dysmorphism. The molecular pathology of this syndrome was shown to be due to a mutation in the tubulin-specific chaperone E (TBCE) gene in chromosomal area 1q42-q43. We aimed to detect and confirm the common mutation responsible for SSS in Tunisian patients and review the literature in order to create a set of clinical diagnostic criteria that might provide appropriate indications for molecular testing.MethodsThree Tunisian patients with clinical feature of SSS were examined via direct Sanger sequencing of exon 3 of the TBCE gene.ResultsMutation analysis of the TBCE gene revealed the common 12-bp (155-166del) deletion in three new patients, thus raising the number of reported SSS patients to 73. Reviewing the literature, we suggest a scoring system that assigns one point each for major criteria and one half point for minor criteria.Interpretation and conclusionsSSS is an autosomal recessive disorder found in the Middle Eastern population with an estimated incidence of 1 per 40,000–100,000 live births in Saudi Arabia. Reviewing the literature on both its clinical and biochemical characteristics, we suggest for the first time, based on defined major and minor SSS criteria, a clinical scoring system for the diagnosis of SSS. On the one hand, an established scoring system will provide appropriate indications for molecular testing and, on the other hand, reviewed data on SSS will help delineate the phenotype and draw a distinction between differential diagnoses.
  • Update on pubertal development in France. PROSPEL – Observational
           study. Preliminary feasibility study
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): J. Mazzarino, O. Puel, M. Jesuran-PerelroizenAbstractIntroductionRecent publications report a decrease in the age of onset of pubertal changes in the United States and Europe. The PROSPEL study (PRemier Observatoire des Stades Pubertaire en Libéral) will provide the first French data on the age at which pubertal signs appear. Before considering this work at the national level, we wanted to assess its feasibility.Materials and methodsPrivate pediatricians and general practitioners were recruited in Bordeaux and Toulouse. Before participating in the study, they had been trained in pubertal assessment and then evaluated. Each physician completed 1–4 weeks of inclusion during which children aged 5–18 years seen in consultation were included, except children who were adopted or had a chronic condition. Pubertal stages were assessed according to Tanner's classification and using an orchidometer for testicular volume. The causes of non-realization were documented where appropriate. Inter-individual reproducibility was analyzed by a double examination for a number of children who had previously given their consent.ResultsIn total, 63 physicians participated in the study (35 pediatricians and 28 general practitioners). All were certified at the end of the training session. A total of 2646 children were included (1318 girls, 1328 boys) with a homogeneous age distribution. The study was carried out in 83.5% of cases. The main reason for non-realization was that physicians did not propose the study to patients who met the criteria (10.1%). Lack of time was the main reason. Inter-individual reproducibility was excellent.Discussion and conclusionOur results attest to the good feasibility of the PROSPEL study. They allowed us to validate our methodology, the training and certification of the participating physicians, and to consider extending the study to the national level.
  • Severe acute pancreatitis in a child with phenylketonuria
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): V. Bertrand, E. Smokvina, E. Masson, H. BruelAbstractWe report for the first time severe acute pancreatitis in a child treated for phenylketonuria (PKU) discovered on neonatal screening. This 2-year-old boy was first hospitalized for bilious vomiting and moderate back pain. Laboratory values included a lipase level of 1.142 U/L, a phenylalanine level of 10 mg/dL, and computed tomography revealed Balthazar grade E pancreatitis. Continuous enteral feeding was started on the 3rd day after admission. We observed clinical and biological improvement. Etiologic investigations for pancreatitis returned negative. Despite the severity of the pancreatitis, we did not observe decompensation of the metabolic disease. Specific nutritional management was necessary.

  • Factors predictive of prognosis of infantile spasms. A retrospective study
           in a low-income country
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): R. Ben Abdelaziz, A. Ben Chehida, M. Lamouchi, S. Ben Messaoud, D. Ali Mohamed, H. Boudabous, M.S. Abdelmoula, H. Azzouz, N. TebibAbstractPurposeTo describe the management of infants with epileptic spasms (ESs) in a low-income country and identify factors predictive of their prognosis.Material and methodsWe conducted a retrospective study in a university hospital in Tunis, Tunisia, over a period of 10 years. We included infants with recurrent ESs.ResultsThirty-eight patients were included. The median age at onset of ESs was 5 months. Typical hypsarrhythmia was found in 21 patients (55%). Brain MRI was done in 32 patients (84%) and metabolic work-up in 34 patients (89%). ESs were categorized as symptomatic in 58% of the patients. Vigabatrin was prescribed as the first-line drug in almost half of the patients. At the last follow-up, 63% of the patients were seizure-free and 82% had a psychomotor delay. The presence of other types of seizures was associated with uncontrolled epilepsy at the last follow-up (P = 0.020). The persistence of spasms after the first-line treatment was associated with abnormal final psychomotor development (P = 0.047).ConclusionsInvestigation practices and final outcomes of our patients were comparable to data from high-income countries. Treatment practices have been standardized to be in line with international guidelines.
  • Assessing assistive technology requirements in children with written
           language disorders. A decision tree to guide counseling
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): A. Cado, J. Nicli, B. Bourgois, L. Vallée, M.-P. LemaitreAbstractChildren with a written language disorder are sometimes dependent upon help from others for their schoolwork. A computer can be a way to circumvent this difficulty. Various software programs and plug-in peripheral devices are available, some of which specifically target the needs of these young people. There is no consensus, however, with regard to how best to counsel parents and children with regard to these tools. Furthermore, written language disorders and existing technical supports are not always clearly understood. In many cases, healthcare and teaching professionals have only limited knowledge of the potentially specific advantages for patients with written language disorders. A child's full integration into daily activities and school life can be hampered by counseling that was inadequately tailored or by a lack of support in using this equipment. Joint consultations involving both an occupational and a speech therapist have been set up in our department to improve counseling with regard to technical supports. Using our daily practice as a basis, we have developed a decision tree that we see as a necessary tool for helping professionals make the most appropriate practical choices.
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning from waterpipe (narghile) smoking in a child
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): N. de Suremain, J. Ngo, S. Loschi, I. Haegy-Doehring, J. Aroulandom, R. CarbajalAbstractShisha smoking has spread to many countries since the 1990s and is now a global phenomenon among adolescents. Notwithstanding the connotations of conviviality of shisha smoking, it is in fact highly dangerous since the smoke inhaled contains toxic substances. Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning carries a high risk of neurological and neuropsychological sequelae such as memory loss, impaired concentration, mood disorders, and various other symptoms. We report a case of severe CO poisoning in a 13-year-old boy after smoking shisha that caused loss of consciousness and seizure. To our knowledge, there have as yet been no reports of cases involving children. We present some epidemiological data on shisha smoking in adolescents as well as on CO intoxication.
  • Epidemiological and clinical profile of intestinal parasitosis of children
           in rural areas in Central African Republic
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Archives de Pédiatrie, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): G. Tékpa, V. Fikouma, E. Gbangba-Ngaï, B.O. Bogning Mejiozem, S. Ningatouloum Nazita, B. KoffiAbstractObjectiveTo describe the epidemiological and clinical profile of intestinal parasites in children in rural Central African Republic.Patients and methodsWe conducted a multicenter cross-sectional study in Central African Republic rural areas. Children seen as outpatients regardless of the reason for consultation were included in the study after parental consent. Each stool sample sent to the laboratory in a plastic pot was subjected to a direct co-examination with physiological water.ResultsA total of 102 children were included in the study, of whom 53 were boys (51.96%), the median age was 4 years (3 months; 15 years old). They had a primary level of education in 31.37% of cases, 76.47% came from Health Region 1. Drilling was the source of drinking water in 61.76% of cases and the backwater was used for bathing by 26.47% of children. Abdominal pain was observed in 55 children (53.92%). The prevalence of intestinal parasitosis was 88.23%. Of 122 identified parasites, 96 were helminths (78.69%) and 26 were protozoa (21.31%). Of the three protozoan species isolated, Entamoeba histolytica was found in 15 cases (14.70%). The most common helminthiasis was Ascaris lumbricoides (40.19%). The frequency of parasitic infection was 92% in children aged from 5 to 9 years. Mono-parasitism was observed in 52.94% versus 33.33% for poly-parasitism.ConclusionIntestinal parasitosis is a public health problem in Central African Republic rural areas. Improving access to drinking water for populations could reduce the magnitude of these diseases.
