Generally, CPE can be convalesced by steroid and anticongestive treatment. Herein, we describe a case of a 14-year-old boy with ARF presenting with bilateral pulmonary edema secondary to acute mitral and aortic insufficiency. In this case, the pulmonary edema of ARF was successfully managed by combined surgical replacements of both valves.

We report the case of an 11-year-old boy with acquired severe biphasic stridor who was exposed to extremely high concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) during apricot sulfurization processes with his mother. The patient's bronchoscopy revealed severe glottic and subglottic damage. Exposure to SO2 is a health risk, particularly for individuals who are sulfide-sensitive, especially in childhood. The pulmonary epithelium may be directly injured by inhaled toxic substances at various levels of the respiratory system. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reported of acquired airway damage associated with sulfurization in a pediatric patient without a known history of any respiratory disease or symptoms.

According to literature, only a handful of ALCAPA patients are able to reach adulthood. Clinical manifestations of ALCAPA range from fatigue during exercise to sudden death in adulthood. Herein, we described a 12-year-old symptomatic patient with ALCAPA who had severe chest pain after using salbutamol treatment for presumed asthma. ALCAPA is one of the curable versions of myocardial ischemia and infarction in childhood. Due to clinical findings in conjunction with electrocardiogram and echocardiography, a computed tomography scan with coronary angiography was performed and the diagnosis of ALCAPA was confirmed. We presented this case because ALCAPA-related myocardial ischemia and infarction in children are rare with only sporadic cases reported. This case illustrated the need for close monitoring and surgery as the best treatment for ALCAPA associated with myocardial infarction.

The recommended treatment for native valve endocarditis secondary to methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus infection is antistaphylococcal penicillins such as nafcillin or oxacillin. If the initial therapy fails in IE, it can lead to catastrophic results. Nowadays, daptomycin is the best alternative antimicrobial agent to treat children with severe infections, when standard antimicrobial therapy does not yield a result. Herein, in this article, we described a case of a 16-year-old boy who had aortic valve S. aureus endocarditis with septic embolization and stroke. The patient was successfully treated only with daptomycin as well as surgical therapy in the early phase of the infection.
- PublicationOpen AccessEvaluation of diagnostic components and management of childhood pulmonary tuberculosis: a prospective study from Istanbul, Turkey.(2022-01-31T00:00:00Z) Dogan Demir, Aysegul; Kut, Arif; Ozaydin, Erhan; Cakir, Fatma Betul; Ustabas Kahraman, Feyza; Uzuner, Selcuk; Collak, Abdulhamit; Cakin, Zeynep Ebru; Cakir, Erkan; ÇAKIR, FATMA BETÜL; USTABAŞ KAHRAMAN, FEYZA; ERENBERK, UFUK; UZUNER, SELÇUK; ÇAKIR, ERKANIntroduction: The diagnosis of childhood tuberculosis is difficult and most of the patients are diagnosed clinically. The objective of this study is to reveal the diagnostic and therapeutic components of childhood pulmonary tuberculosis and to analyze the changes that occurred in our country over the years. Methodology: All patients diagnosed with tuberculosis between 2006 and 2016 were included. Demographic characteristics, diagnostic and treatment outcomes were recorded and patients were followed up prospectively. Results: A total of 492 patients were included in the study. 97% had Bacillus Calmette-Guerin vaccine, 36% were diagnosed with microbiologically-confirmed tuberculosis and 64% were diagnosed with clinically-proven tuberculosis. 94% of the patients had symptoms consistent with tuberculosis, all patients had radiologic findings, 74% had a history of tuberculosis contact and 63% had tuberculin skin test positivity. The diagnoses included primary tuberculosis in 62%, secondary tuberculosis in 21%, progressive primary tuberculosis in 13% and miliary tuberculosis in 4%. 48% of the patients received a treatment regimen containing three drugs as the initial treatment, and drug-related side effects developed in 12%. Isoniazid resistance was detected in 13% of the patients and rifampicin resistance was detected in 8%. None of the patients died due to tuberculosis. In the last 50 years in Turkey, the rates of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin vaccination and diagnosis of tuberculosis cases have increased and the mortality rates have decreased over the years. Conclusions: Our study is one of the few prospective studies and revealed the differences between the recent data and the past 50 years in childhood tuberculosis in Turkey.
- PublicationOpen AccessSubdural empyema, brain abscess, and superior sagittal sinus venous thrombosis secondary to Streptococcus anginosus(2021-01-01T00:00:00Z) YEŞİLBAŞ, Osman; YOZGAT, Can Yılmaz; Tahaoglu, Irmak; BURSAL DURAMAZ, BURCU; TÜREL, Özden; TEKİN, NUR; UZUNER, SELÇUK; Abdallah, Anas; YEŞİLBAŞ, OSMAN; YOZGAT, YILMAZ; BURSAL DURAMAZ, BURCU; TÜREL, ÖZDEN; TEKİN, NUR; UZUNER, SELÇUKStreptococcus anginosus can be frequently isolated from brain abscesses, but is a rare cause of the liver, lung, and deep tissue abscesses. In this report, we present a patient with subdural empyema, brain abscess, and superior sagittal cerebral venous thrombosis as complications of rhinosinusitis whose purulent empyema sample yielded S. anginosus. A 13-year-old female patient was referred to our pediatric intensive care unit with altered mental status, aphasia, and behavioral change. On a brain computed tomography scan, subdural empyema extending from the left frontal sinus to the frontal interhemispheric area and left hemispheric dura was detected. Intravenous ceftriaxone, vancomycin, and metronidazole treatments were started. Subdural empyema was surgically drained. Postoperative brain magnetic resonance venography imaging showed superior sagittal sinus thrombosis. Cultures obtained from purulent empyema sample revealed S. anginosus. On the third day of hospitalization, a brain computed tomography scan showed brain edema, especially in the left hemisphere and significantly increased subdural empyema that had been previously drained. She was reoperated and decompressive craniectomy was performed. On the fifth day, partial epileptic seizures occurred. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed a brain abscess on the interhemispheric area. The magnetic resonance imaging findings of abscess formation improved on 30th day and she was discharged on the 45th day after the completion of antibiotic therapy.
