BACKGROUND The clinical presentation, treatment, and outcome of steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome (SSNS) during childhood have been extensively studied. Conversely, few data regarding the outcome in adulthood of childhood SSNS have been published previously. We undertook to conduct a retrospective study of the outcome in adulthood of a large cohort of(More)
Munchausen syndrome by proxy is a form of child abuse presenting as a disease produced or simulated by a parent, the mother in most cases. Its diagnosis is uneasy because of its miscellaneous and unusual clinical presentation and of the misleading apparently normal attitude of the parents. Physicians may participate in the abuse by insistently looking for(More)
Mutations in the Wilms' tumor suppressor gene (WT1) are linked with Denys-Drash syndrome (DDS), a rare childhood disease characterized by diffuse mesangial sclerosis and renal failure of early onset, XY pseudohermaphroditism, and high risk of Wilms' tumor. KTS (lysine-threonine-serine) splice site mutations in WT1 intron 9 have been described in patients(More)
BACKGROUND Donor splice-site de novo heterozygous mutations in intron 9 of the Wilms' tumor gene (WT1) have been reported in Frasier syndrome, which is defined by the association of focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), male pseudohermaphroditism, and gonadoblastoma. These splice-site mutations alter the WT1 alternative splicing leading to two WT1(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of diarrhoea relies on the maintenance or restoration of hydration with maintenance of an adequate nutritional intake. Racecadotril has been shown to reduce the stools output during acute diarrhoea. The present work was aimed at measuring the number of emergency department visits for acute diarrhoea either the children received(More)
Circumcision is the most common surgical procedure in boys. Even if the procedure is frequent, circumcision can have tragic complications. We report the cases of six children, seen over 1 year at the emergency department for bleeding complication or mutilation after ritual home circumcision. To avoid such complications, it is recommended that circumcision(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the compliance of prescription, the efficacity and the adverse events of oral morphine used in the pediatric emergency department (ED) in traumatic pains. METHOD This prospective study was conducted in the ED from october 2002 to september 2003. Children aged six months to 16 years with a visual analogic scale (VAS) score higher than(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare treatment with beta 2 agonist delivered either by a spacer device or a nebulizer in children with severe or potentially severe acute asthma. METHODS In this randomized trial, children 4 to 15 years, cared for in the emergency department for severe or potentially severe acute asthma, received 6 times either nebulizations of salbutamol(More)
BACKGROUND Each year, a quarter of the children younger than 24 months has respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis. The morbidity among high-risk infants and the possible association with the development of asthma lead to propose preventive measures whose cost-effectiveness relationship is unknown. The present work was aimed at measuring costs of a first(More)
