  • Recurrent Bilateral Pleural and Pericardial Effusions due to Tuberculosis in a Child With Doose Syndrome

  • Challenges in Differentiating Between Solitary Rectal Ulcer Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease in the Pediatric Population

  • Elevated Lipase Associated With COVID-19 Possibly due to Acute Pancreatitis in a Pediatric Patient: A Case Report

    As the global pandemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) advances, the challenge of understanding its wide spectrum of symptoms and sequelae continues to be a priority in the medical world. There are not many case reports on the atypical presenting features of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), especially in the pediatric population.

  • Impact of Oxygen Delivery Patterns on Arterial Oxygen Saturation Among Children

    Adequate oxygenation to treat hypoxia by suitable oxygen delivery pattern is the essence of pediatric critical care medicine. Monitoring oxygen saturation (SpO2) is thus essential in order to decide course of treatment.

  • Arm Swelling From Subclavian Vein Thrombosis: Factor V Leiden Mutation

    Factor V Leiden is a genetic condition that can decrease natural anticoagulant effect in response to activated protein C, increasing thromboembolic risk. We report a 17-year-old man, homozygous for the Factor V Leiden mutation, with sudden onset arm stiffness, pain and swelling caused by a deep vein thrombosis in the subclavian vein.

The Management of Influenza Virus-Induced Plastic Bronchitis in Pediatric Patients
Although the incidence is very rare, plastic bronchitis (PB) could be a serious comorbid disease of virus infection in children, especially in those who have a history of bronchial asthma. We have recently experienced an influenza virus-induced PB who was successfully treated by endoscopic intervention under multidisciplinary approach in our institution. Full Text
