BACKGROUND Neonatal sepsis causes significant neonatal mortality and morbidity. Neonates, especially preterm infants, have an immaturity of granulopoeisis and have a limited capacity for progenitor cell proliferation. This results in the frequent occurrence of neutropaenia in septic neonates. Neutropaenic septic neonates have a higher mortality than(More)
Recent evidence suggests that inflammatory cytokines may play an important role in cerebral and pulmonary injury, especially in preterm infants. Immunomodulatory agents may help to limit such injury by reducing inflammation. Immunoglobulin has multiple anti-inflammatory properties and can modulate the inflammatory cytokine response. New evidence is required(More)
BACKGROUND Although the overall incidence of neonatal sepsis has declined over the past decade, mortality remains high in the pre term infant. The high level of mortality and morbidity from sepsis despite the use of potent anti-microbial agents, and the global emergence of antibiotic resistance, have led to the search for new modalities to boost new born(More)
BACKGROUND Rotavirus infection is the most common neonatal nosocomial viral infection. Epidemics with the newer P(6)G9 strains have been reported in neonatal units worldwide. These strains can cause severe symptoms in most infected infants. Infection control measures become necessary and the utilisation of hospital resources increase. Local mucosal immunity(More)
The ideal approach for nephrectomy in the child with horseshoe kidney is debatable. We present two such children who underwent nephrectomy by a retroperitoneoscopic approach. Recognition of its anatomical variation is essential in the management of horseshoe kidney. Surgery is high risk, even using a traditional open procedure, because loss of the remaining(More)
