The Changing Epidemiology of Pediatric Endocarditis at a Children’s Hospital Over Seven Decades
Pediatric IE remains associated with high crude mortality rates when it is acquired in the hospital, and currently, IE is most likely to occur among young children with complex congenital heart disease. Expand
Risk factors for candidemia in critically ill infants: a matched case-control study.
Previous risk factors (catheter-days) were confirmed and novel risk factors for candidemia in critically ill infants that could guide future targeted antifungal prophylaxis strategies were identified. Expand
Management of Pediatric Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis and Latent Tuberculosis Infections in New York City From 1995 to 2003
A retrospective study of children treatment for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in New York City from 1995 to 2003 found that children with MDR-TB and LTBI were best cared for in public health settings and a multicenter registry would be desirable to obtain accurate rates of toxicity and cure.

Newborn Dried Blood Spot Polymerase Chain Reaction to Identify Infants with Congenital Cytomegalovirus‐Associated Sensorineural Hearing Loss
DBS PCR for CMV has low sensitivity and specificity for identifying infants with CMV‐associated hearing loss, and it is demonstrated that DBS PCR does not identify either the majority ofCMV‐infected newborns or those with CMv‐associated SNHL early in life. Expand
Urine Collection Method for the Diagnosis of Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection
Congenital cytomegalovirus infection is traditionally diagnosed by virus detection in saliva or urine. Virus culture was positive in significantly fewer urine samples collected using cotton balls inExpand
Racial and Ethnic Differences in the Prevalence of Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection
Although once infected, the newborn disease and rates of hearing loss in infants are similar with respect to race and ethnicity, even after adjusting for socioeconomic status and maternal age. Expand
An Adolescent With Pseudomigraine, Transient Headache, Neurological Deficits, and Lymphocytic Pleocytosis (HaNDL Syndrome)
We report a 16-year-old adolescent with 2 episodes of focal neurological deficits, pseudomigrainous headache, and lymphocytic pleocytosis due to the syndrome of transient headache and neurologicalExpand
Infertility, in vitro fertilization and congenital tuberculosis
Five infants conceived by in vitro fertilization who developed CTB were born to mothers who had immigrated to the United States from India and none had GU TB diagnosed before the birth of their infected infants. Expand
Neonatal herpes disease following maternal antenatal antiviral suppressive therapy: a multicenter case series.
Although maternal antiviral suppressive therapy for herpes simplex virus (HSV) disease in neonates whose mothers received suppressive acyclovir therapy is an increasingly wide practice, physicians caring for neonates should be aware that suppressive Therapy does not prevent neonatal HSV disease, which can have an atypical clinical presentation and drug resistance. Expand
Tuberculosis in children.
The epidemiology of pediatric tuberculosis (TB) is shaped by risk factors such as age, race, immigration, poverty, overcrowding, and HIV/AIDS, leading to differences in clinical and radiographic manifestations. Expand
