Clinical and radiological course of simple renal cysts in children.
TLDR
Regular radiological follow-up might be important in children with large size of cyst at diagnosis, because of more rapid increase in cyst size, as simple renal cysts in childhood tend to slowly increase in size.
Clinical course of children with nutcracker syndrome.
TLDR
The diagnosis of NCS should be considered in the presence of symptoms such as proteinuria and hematuria and should be absolutely ruled out before attempting renal biopsy, with an apparent correlation between an increased body mass index and regression of symptoms.
Risk factors for subclinical inflammation in children with Familial Mediterranean fever
TLDR
Children with FMF who have myalgia and erysipelas like erythema during the attacks are particularly at risk of ongoing inflammation and should be closely monitored for subclinical inflammation even during attack-free periods.
Bioelectric Impedance Analysis in the Diagnosis of Vesicoureteral Reflux
TLDR
BIA has been useful in discriminating children with VUR as there was no decreased in patients with V UR, although there was decreased TSF in patients without VUR, and further studies are needed to increase the accuracy of this hypothesis.
Acute focal bacterial nephritis developed in a healthy child.
TLDR
A six-year-old healthy male patient, diagnosed using ultrasound and computerized tomography (CT) and treated with intravenous antibiotics, is presented, showing clear signs of acute focal bacterial nephritis.
TLR-4 polymorphisms and leukocyte TLR-4 expression in febrile UTI and renal scarring
TLDR
Findings indicate that children carrying TLR-4 Thr399Ile polymorphism and/or having low level of monocyte/neutrophil TLr-4 expression have a tendency to develop febrile UTI.
Place of ultrasonography in predicting vesicoureteral reflux in patients with mild renal scarring.
TLDR
Normal renal USG findings exclude a diagnosis of high-grade VUR to a large extend in children with UTI and mild renal scarring, suggesting thatraining from invasive VCUG might be a reasonable approach in these patients provided that no other predisposing factors forUTI and/or renal Scarring present.
Cefixime-induced oculogyric crisis.
TLDR
A cefixime-induced oculogyric crisis is presented in a 7-year-old boy during the treatment of urinary tract infection whose ocular symptoms gradually disappeared within 48 hours after the drug was discontinued.
Clinical Significance of R202Q Alteration of MEFV Gene in Children With Familial Mediterranean Fever
TLDR
R202Q alteration of the MEFV gene may lead to symptoms consistent with FMF, however, R202Q/M694V compound heterozygosity is more associated with mild phenotype than compoundheterozygous mutation of M694V.
Carnitine palmitoyl transferase II deficiency in an adolescent presenting with rhabdomyolysis and acute renal failure.
TLDR
A case of a 13-year-old girl with recurrent rhabdomyolysis due to CPT II deficiency whose last attack was complicated by acute renal failure is reported.
