The potential for QT prolongation by antiepileptic drugs in children.
Transient Left Ventricular Dysfunction After Percutaneous Patent Ductus Arteriosus Closure in Children
The results of this study suggest that serial assessments of ventricular function are needed after PDA occlusion in patients with high Qp/Qs and Pp/Ps ratios, and larger amounts of pre-closure left-to-right shunting and higher pulmonary artery pressure were associated with an increased likelihood of FS <29% after closure.
Cytokine response in pediatric patients with pandemic influenza H1N1 2009 virus infection and pneumonia: Comparison with pediatric pneumonia without H1N1 2009 infection
Correlations between cytokine levels and clinical/laboratory findings in pediatric patients with pandemic influenza H1N1 2009 virus infection‐pneumonia and in children with pneumonia but without H 1N1 infection are examined.

Relationship between the Clinical Characteristics and Intervention Scores of Infants with Apparent Life-threatening Events
There was a weak positive correlation between the patient's total ALTE criteria and total significant intervention score, but not statistically significant, and it is recommended that all ALTE infants undergo inpatient observation and evaluations with at least 24 hr of cardiorespiratory monitoring, and should follow up at least within a month after discharge.

Clinical usefulness of serum procalcitonin level in distinguishing between Kawasaki disease and other infections in febrile children
A combination of disease markers, including ESR, CRP, and PCT, may be useful for differentiating between KD and viral/bacterial infections.
Comparison between Kawasaki disease with lymph-node-first presentation and Kawasaki disease without cervical lymphadenopathy
KD should be suspected in children who are unresponsive to antibiotics and have prolonged fever and cervical lymphadenopathy, which indicates that KD is associated with the likelihood of requiring second-line treatment and risk of developing coronary artery dilatation.
