ABSTRACT: Rickettsial infections are re-emerging and are prevalent throughout the world. Due to low index of suspicion, non-specific symptoms and signs and absence of widely available sensitive and specific diagnostic tests, these infections are notoriously difficult to diagnose. We report here a case of rickettsial encephalitis who presented with headache, fever with rash and which within a span of 2 days progressed to develop life threatening complications. With a high index of suspicion and timely diagnosis, she had a dramatic response to treatment and was cured. This case reiterates the importance of increased vigilance in clinical management of these infections.Pediatric infectious disease 04/2013; 1(2013):75-77.

ABSTRACT: Pseudomonas fluorescens was recovered from 62 of 22,270 (0.26%) blood cultures, from 57 patients, over a 22-month period at a pediatric hospital. No illness was attributable to the blood culture isolate. A case-control study identified a significant correlation between the recovery of P. fluorescens in blood culture and concomitant coagulation studies (p less than 0.0001). In all cases blood for coagulation studies had been obtained at the same time as the blood culture. A review of venipuncture technique revealed that occasionally the coagulation study tubes (containing 3.8% sodium citrate) were being inoculated before blood culture bottles. P. fluorescens was subsequently isolated from coagulation tubes and from sodium citrate solutions prepared and dispensed in the hospital for use in coagulation studies. In vitro studies confirmed that sodium citrate solutions supported the growth of P. fluorescens, with preferential growth at 25 degrees C and 4 degrees C. This is the first description of P. fluorescens as a cause of pseudobacteremia. Pseudobacteremia was attributed to cross-contamination of blood cultures following inoculation of contaminated citrated collection tubes.Pediatric infectious disease 01/1999; 4(5):508-12.

Article: Amebic liver abscess in children[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Five children with amebic liver abscesses are presented, and the distinctive clinical and laboratory features for these and 119 other children are described. The majority (91%) were less than 3 years old, and 77% had an isolated abscess in the right hepatic lobe. Each child presented with a history of fever and gastrointestinal symptoms, and two-thirds presented with cough or difficulty breathing. Most (81%) patients had hepatomegaly on physical examination and some had a well-defined mass. Hematologic abnormalities including anemia, neutrophilia and an increased ratio (greater than 0.15) of immature neutrophils to total neutrophils were commonly observed at the time of admission. Of interest, intravenous pyelograms revealed deviation of the right kidney due to hepatomegaly in each of three children studied. All patients evaluated had one or more filling defects demonstrated by liver-spleen scan or abdominal ultrasound. Most patients underwent either an open (9%) or closed (77%) drainage procedure. Fifty-six children (46%) died, in some cases before specific therapy was instituted. Of those who recovered all received therapy with metronidazole or a combination of chloroquine with emetine or dehydroemetine.Pediatric infectious disease 01/1993; 1(5):322-7.

Article: Prevention of respiratory infections[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Respiratory infections are the most common reason for parents to bring ill children to the pediatrician (Table 1). Although most infections are mild and require only symptomatic therapy, immunoprophy-laxis, chemoprophylaxis and modification of certain behavioral or environmental factors can prevent many serious illnesses involving the upper and lower respi-ratory tract (Table 2).Pediatric infectious disease 01/1993; 4(4):442-6.
