OBJECTIVE This study was designed to test the hypothesis that macrosomia in infants born to non-diabetic mothers is associated with an increased incidence of hyperinsulinemia and normal maternal glucose regulation in late pregnancy. METHODS Twenty mothers and their macrosomic infants were chosen as the study group, and 20 mothers with their(More)
The aim of this article is to investigate the prevalence of Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency in neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and to compare the clinical presentation and course of G6PD-deficient and normal patients. This study included a total of 624 term neonates with indirect hyperbilirubinemia from March 2001 to September 2004. Birth(More)
UNLABELLED Bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) vaccination used in the prevention of tuberculosis may cause problems in interpreting the tuberculin skin test (TST), which is commonly used in the diagnosis of infection. A limited number of studies have been undertaken to investigate how length of time after BCG vaccination affects TST results. TST induration(More)
Acute infantile haemorrhagic oedema (AIHO) is characterised by purpura, ecchymosis and inflammatory oedema of the face and extremities. It is seen in children aged 4-24 months. The atiology is not known. We report a case of AIHO diagnosed by skin biopsy demonstrating leukocyte-elastic vasculitis. Laboratory studies showed positive hepatitis A IgM and IgG(More)
Non-ketotic hyperglycinaemia is an autosomal recessive disorder of glycine metabolism caused by a defect in the glycine cleavage system. Affected neonates present with lethargy, feeding difficulty, hypotonia, apnoea, poorly controlled convulsions and coma. Four cases are reported, three of whom died in the neonatal period. The fourth case was treated with(More)
UNLABELLED Intravenous (IV) ferric iron (Fe)-carbohydrate complexes are used for treating Fe deficiency in children with iron-refractory iron-deficiency anemia (IRIDA). An optimal treatment has yet to be determined. There are relatively little publications on the responsiveness to IV iron therapy in children with IRIDA. PATIENTS AND METHOD This study(More)
AIM To determine the effect of Bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) vaccination on tuberculin skin test responses in 7-11-year-old children, and also to clarify whether the number of vaccinations and the time interval between vaccination and tuberculin skin test have an effect on the test responses. METHOD 1200 primary school children were evaluated for the(More)
Although congenital diaphragmatic hernia is one of the most common congenital anomalies, complete bilateral agenesis of the diaphragm is a very rare congenital malformation and frequently associated with other major anomalies. We report a case of bilateral diaphragmatic agenesis associated with major congenital anomalies. A 2,240-g male infant was born at(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the hematological status of severe vitamin B12 deficiency in infants and adolescents. METHODS This study involved 95 infants and 117 adolescents with severe plasma vitamin B12 deficiency (< 120 pg/ mL) and normal plasma folate and ferritin. Infants were aged between one and 24 months. Adolescents were aged(More)
