Infantile hepatic hemangioendothelioma (IHHE) is the most common benign vascular liver tumor and typically occurs during the first 6 months of life. A 4-month-old male patient presented with abdominal distention. A physical examination revealed massive hepatomegaly. Liver enzyme levels were normal. The alpha fetoprotein level was 1,323 mg/dL (6-1,000).(More)
Use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is widespread and increasing. We sought to study the frequency and factors affecting of its use in children with cancer. We designed a questionnaire that was administered to the parents of children between September 2013 and March 2014. A total of 74 patients were enrolled into the study. Fifty patients(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphoma-associated incomplete Miller-Fisher syndrome is very rare. CASE CHARACTERISTICS An 11-year-old boy who initially presented with headache, left ptosis, diplopia and weakness. Neurologic examination indicated left sided ptosis with ophthalmoplegia. OBSERVATIONS Cerebral imaging and cerebrospinal fluid examinations were normal. Magnetic(More)
Increased thrombophilic tendency in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) has recently been reported. The determinants of thrombosis in children with CF remain largely unknown. Our aim in this study was to evaluate the thromboelastography (TEG) profile of children with CF through ROTEM (whole blood rotation thromboelastometry). Nineteen patients with CF and 20(More)
Neurological symptoms such as ptosis may develop due to either chemotherapeutic agents or involvement of the central nervous system (CNS) during hematologic malignancy. It is difficult to make this distinction according to clinical symptoms and magnetic resonance imaging findings. If the neurologic symptoms are increased, it is a warning of CNS involvement.(More)
Saprochaete capitata (S. capitata) is a very rare fungal pathogen that causes disseminated opportunistic infections in patients with hematologic malignancies. Fever resistant to broad-spectrum antibiotic and antifungal treatment is common in the presence of fungemia during the period of profound neutropenia. We describe three cases of leukemic children who(More)
Congenital amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia (CAMT) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by thrombocytopenia from failure of megakaryopoiesis. The genetic background of CAMT is mutations in the myeloproliferative ligand gene encoding the thrombopoietin receptor. In our patient with CAMT, we identified homozygous missense mutations [c.407C>T(More)
Beta (β)-thalassemia is characterized by a hypercoagulable state and an increased risk of thrombosis, which can result in significant morbidity and mortality. The coagulation pattern and determinants of thrombosis in patients with β-thalassemia remain largely unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate the whole blood thromboelastometry (TEM) profile of(More)
Turkish Society of Pediatric Hematology set up a National Hemoglobinopathy Registry to demonstrate demographic and disease characteristics of patients, and assessed the efficacy of hemoglobinopathy control program (HCP) over 10 years in Turkey. A total of 2046 patients from 27 Thalassemia Centers were registered in which 1988 were eligible for analysis.(More)
BACKGROUND Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common soft tissue tumors of infancy. Although spontaneous regression is expected, medical treatment is needed in approximately 10-20% of cases. AIMS We aimed to assess the safety and efficacy of systemic propranolol for the treatment of IH. PATIENTS/METHODS Medical records of 34 eligible patients were(More)
