A full-term 9-day-old girl presented with fever, irritability, and seizures. The routine CSF examination, cranial ultrasound, and laboratory tests were normal. Brain MRI showed diffuse white matter abnormality (figure). Human parechovirus (HPeV) type 3 was isolated in both CSF and blood. The neurodevelopmental outcome at 4 months is poor, and MRI shows an(More)
OBJECTIVE Several indexes are used to quantify the severity of hypoxemia, including the arterial to alveolar oxygen ratio (a/APO(2)), the alveolar-arterial difference P(a-a)o(2), the ratio Pao(2)/Fio(2), and the oxygenation index (OI = mean airway pressure x Pao(2)/Fio(2)). This study was carried out to test how stable these indexes are when small changes(More)
We report 2 neonates with human parechoviruses type 3 encephalitis. Both newborns presented with fever, irritability and seizures. Cerebrospinal fluid analyses were normal, but magnetic resonance imaging revealed white matter damage, suggesting human parechoviruse infection. Human parechoviruses type 3-RNA was detected in cerebrospinal fluid samples and in(More)
Early myoclonic encephalopathy (EME) presents in neonatal period with erratic or fragmentary myoclonus and a burst-suppression electroencephalography (EEG) pattern. Nonketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH) is the most common metabolic cause of EME and genetic testing confirms the diagnosis of NKH in around 75% of the patients with a clinical diagnosis of NKH. Three(More)
Our reorganization project arises from the need to assist in Neonatology newborns with GA (Gestational Age) ≥ 34 weeks and/or birth weight ≥ 1800 g in good cardiorespiratory conditions and newborns still partially fed by nasogatric tube. Up to June 2010 our Neonatology usually assisted latepreterm newborns but our new needs require to increase patients’(More)
