In order to identify the possible reservoirs and routes of cross-infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, samples from patients, staff, and the environment of a cystic fibrosis centre and two control wards at an infectious disease clinic were collected during a two-week period in 1980. All the Ps. aeruginosa strains were phage and serotyped. Ps. aeruginosa(More)
BACKGROUND Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is one of the leading causes of sepsis and meningitis in newborn. The objective of this study was to describe the characteristics of GBS meningitis in children aged between 7 and 89 days (late onset disease - LOD group) and to compare them with children aged more than 3 months (ultra late onset disease - ULOD group).(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS To describe the outcome of neonates with prenatal intestinal volvulus. PATIENTS AND METHODS All neonates with prenatal intestinal volvulus managed in our institution between May 2004 and December 2010 were retrospectively studied. All neonates with prenatal or neonatal diagnosis of prenatal intestinal volvulus were included. We(More)
Single-lumen cannula venovenous (VV) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a special extracorporeal life support (ECLS) technique used for neonatal and pediatric refractory hypoxemia. This is an alternative flow rate ECLS that consists of successive clamping on the drainage and the injection lines. Currently, the Armand-Trousseau's pediatric(More)
OBJECTIVE To report our institutional experience of veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) in children with refractory septic shock. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed our ECMO database to identify patients who received VA ECMO for septic shock from January 2004 to June 2013 at our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in(More)
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) of very preterm infants is a multifactorial chronic lung disease and its incidence has not decreased despite improvements in neonatal intensive care, including lung protective strategies. Pulmonary hypertension (PH) can complicate the course of BPD. Mortality in infants with BPD-associated PH is thought to be very high, but(More)
We describe a case of a young child who lived in Hong Kong who presented with a severe epilepticus status after a return flight to Paris. Routine laboratory tests failed to establish a cause. Upon further questioning, the parents reported that the nanny had given an abdominal massage to the child with an unlabelled solution reported to have anti-flatulence(More)
BACKGROUND This retrospective, single-center study was designed to assess our management strategy based on blebs detection on the initial CT scan. METHODS Children younger than aged 18 years presenting with a primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) between 2000 and 2007 in a University Children's Hospital (hospital Armand Trousseau, Paris, France) were(More)
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is used as a last resort during neonatal and pediatric resuscitation in case of refractory circulatory or respiratory failure under maximum conventional therapies. Different types of ECMO can be used depending on the initial failure. The main indications for ECMO are refractory respiratory failure (acute respiratory(More)
Many Mycoplasma pneumoniae extra respiratory infections have already been reported. The authors report the case of an eight year old child, presenting with acute transverse myelitis, with a PCR proven involvement of M. pneumoniae in CSF as well as the presence of specific IgM in blood. Acute transverse myelitis may have many causes, most of the time viral.(More)
