Explanation of congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma
We report the genomic localization by homozygosity mapping and the identification of a gene for a new form of non-syndromic autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis. The phenotype usually presents as non-bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma with fine whitish scaling on an erythrodermal background; larger brownish scales are present on the buttocks, neck and legs. A few patients presented a more generalized lamellar ichthyosis. Palmoplantar keratoderma was present in all cases, whereas only 60% of the patients were born as collodion babies. Six homozygous mutations including one nonsense and five missense mutations were identified in a new gene, ichthyin, on chromosome 5q33 in 23 patients from 14 consanguineous families from Algeria, Colombia, Syria and Turkey. Ichthyin encodes a protein with several transmembrane domains which belongs to a new family of proteins of unknown function localized in the plasma membrane (PFAM: DUF803), with homologies to both transporters and G-protein ...

A collection of disease information resources and questions answered by our Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Specialists for CHILD syndrome
CHILD syndrome is a hereditary disorder transmitted as an X-linked dominant trait. The faulty gene is on the long arm of the X chromosome (Xq28). The protein/enzyme product coded by the gene has been identified as NSDHL and governs an essential step in the biosynthesis of cholesterol.. Chromosomes, which are present in the nucleus of human cells, carry the genetic information for each individual. Human body cells normally have 46 chromosomes. Pairs of human chromosomes are numbered from 1 through 22 and the sex chromosomes are designated X and Y. Males have one X and one Y chromosome and females have two X chromosomes. Each chromosome has a short arm designated "p" and a long arm designated "q". Chromosomes are further sub-divided into many bands that are numbered. For example, "chromosome Xq28" refers to band 28 on the long arm of the X-chromosome. The numbered bands specify the location of the thousands of genes that are present on each chromosome.. Genetic diseases are ...

Abusive head trauma, also known as shaken baby syndrome, is a term that no parent ever wants to hear.. Usually, when a doctor utters those words, a baby is dead or dying, and a parent is going to go to jail on charges of child abuse or murder. For years, doctors were quick to diagnose a baby with shaken baby syndrome, but now the evidence may be too inconclusive to tell for sure.. Signs of Shaken Baby Syndrome. Shaken baby syndrome describes injuries to a babys brain that supposedly occurs when the baby is shaken violently in a fit of frustration by the babys caretaker. According to the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome, head trauma does not always exhibit external signs of injuries such as difficulty breathing, seizure, or facial or scalp injury.. To diagnose shaken baby syndrome, doctors look for brain swelling, retinal hemorrhage (bleeding in the eyes), subdural ...
Fractured fibula should be added to the differential diagnosis of atraumatic limp in childhood. Unexplained fractures in young children are suggestive of non-accidental injury. In each of the described cases the possibility of non-accidental injury was considered and discussed with the parents and in some cases with Social Services. In no case was the diagnosis of non-accidental injury sustained. Simple fracture of the fibula does not suggest non-accidental injury in children over 1 year of age.5-7 There are reports of apparently spontaneous stress fractures of tibia or fibula in toddlers.8,9. It may seem perverse to diagnose irritable hip in the absence of physical signs apart from limp, but the diagnosis is made by exclusion, and clinical assessment of these children is often problematic. These cases illustrate the difficulties of physical examination. Pain and tenderness at the hip is ...

Although the sharp increase in homicide rates among US youth has begun to reverse1 as overall homicide rates among other age groups have declined in recent years,2 the public health challenge of reducing firearm fatalities is growing. Firearms account for an increasing proportion of intentional injury deaths in the US, especially among the homicides of young persons: the proportion of homicide deaths attributed to firearms among 15-34 year olds rose from 66.4% in 19851 to 79.8% in 1997,3 the most recent year for which final data are available. The proportion of suicide deaths of 15-34 year olds attributed to firearms remained stable during this same period (57.3% in 19851 and 56.8% in 19973).. Preventing firearm related deaths is a substantial challenge. Most efforts have focused on the availability or accessibility of firearms. Whether the strategy is to restrict or to increase firearm availability and accessibility,4-7 an underlying goal is to equalize force in situations with the potential ...
Shaken baby syndrome is a type of inflicted traumatic brain injury that happens when a baby is violently shaken. A baby has weak neck muscles and a large, heavy head. Shaking makes the fragile brain bounce back and forth inside the skull and causes bruising, swelling, and bleeding, which can lead to permanent, severe brain damage or death. The characteristic injuries of shaken baby syndrome are subdural hemorrhages (bleeding in the brain), retinal hemorrhages (bleeding in the retina), damage to the spinal cord and neck, and fractures of the ribs and bones. These injuries may not be immediately noticeable. Symptoms of shaken baby syndrome include extreme irritability, lethargy, poor feeding, breathing problems, convulsions, vomiting, and pale or bluish skin. Shaken baby injuries usually occur in children younger than 2 years old, but may be seen in children up to the age of 5 ...
The labor and delivery of a child is a physically stressful event for both a mother and her baby. If a child endures this process without significant injury, parents may assume that the majority of danger has passed. Unfortunately, though, there are many instances of medical malpractice that may result in serious injury and health problems for infants after birth. Shaken baby syndrome is an example of this type of careless behavior and can lead to severe complications for the child.. Anyone that has seen their child suffer from an injury understands the fear and the stress associated with this type of incident. If your child has developed shaken baby syndrome as a result of improper handling or treatment from a hospital staff member, you may be eligible for financial compensation for related medical expenses.

Landeros v. Flood was a 1976 court case in the state of California involving child abuse and alleged medical malpractice. In 1971, Gita Landeros, a minor, was seen in the emergency room by Dr. Flood for injuries inflicted by her mother and the mothers common law husband. Dr. Flood failed to diagnose "battered child syndrome" and also did not report the injuries to proper civil authorities in violation of California law. The child was released to the custody of her mother and the mothers common law husband, where she experienced further injury at their hands. The parents fled the state, but were apprehended and convicted of criminal child abuse. Gita Landeros brought a civil suit in tort for damages against Dr. Flood. The trial court dismissed her case as a matter of law. The case was appealed and decided in 1976 by the California Supreme Court. GITA LANDEROS, Appellant, a ...

Etiology-specific morbidity and mortality estimates for conditions such as pneumonia, meningitis, and neonatal infections. The objective of this activity is to provide pathogen-specific estimates of mortality and morbidity for significant childhood conditions. Expanding on the work of the CHERG over the past decade to provide estimates of important child syndromes, this activity seeks to improve understanding of the contribution of specific pathogens to morbidity and mortality from childhood pneumonia, meningitis, and neonatal infections. Substantial new information on pathogen-specific morbidity and mortality has become available in recent years, particularly from low- and middle-income countries. This new information is being incorporated into national, regional, and global estimates disease burden estimates..

Small Intestine Perforation, Blunt Abdominal Injury vs. Obstructive Ileus due to Adhesions Left picture: This child has sustained a blunt abdominal trauma as part of a battered child syndrome. The diagnosis is a free intestinal perforation; according to the findings on revision, the perforation is localized in the jejunum on the antimesenteric side, and is visible in the picture at the bottom on the left side. Right picture: The reason for the described clinical presentation is not a constipation; rather, an obstructive ileus due to postoperative adhesions is present which could have been suspected not only from the clinical presentation, but also by a precise history with former abdominal surgery. Compare that with the picture at the bottom on the right side showing an adhesion running over the mesentery and covering two intestinal loops with already ...
Over the past 15 years, it has become clear that inborn errors of cholesterol synthesis give rise to human malformation/mental retardation syndromes. Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome is the prototypical example of a post-squalene inborn error of metabolism; however, this group of disorders now includes lathosterolosis, desmosterolosis, X-linked dominant chondrodysplasia (CDPX2), CHILD syndrome, HEM dysplasia, and some cases of Antley-Bixler syndrome (1-3). Due to the extremely rare occurrence of some of these disorders, the full phenotypic spectrum has yet to be defined. Cholesterol transport in cells can also cause a disorder known as Niemann-Pick Disease type C (NPC). NPC belongs to a group of disorders known as lysosomal storage disorders. The purpose of this protocol is to 1) allow for the collection of biomaterial and medical information that can be studied to gain insight into the pathological processes; 2) allow for the ...
Abstract: For a number of years, clinicians and researchers have recognized the existence of a subgrouping of children who exhibit chronic and pervasive signs of inattention, impulsivity, and physical restlessness, as well as deficiencies in rule-governed behavior, which deviate significantly from age and gender expectations (Barkley; 1981; Ross & Ross, 1982; Wender, 1971). Since first being identified by Still (1902), this particular pattern of behavioral difficulties has undergone numerous changes in the diagnostic terminology used to describe it. Attention Deficit Disorder (with or without Hyperactivity), Hyperkinesis, Hyperkinetic Reaction of Childhood, Hyperactive Child Syndrome, Minimal Brain Damage, and Minimal Brain Dysfunction are some of the many labels that have been applied to this disorder in the past. With the arrival of the recently revised third edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM III-R, ...

Non-Accidental Head Injury describes an injury to a childs brain that is unexplained. This is caused by the moving of the brain inside of the skull.
Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), also known as abusive head trauma or non-accidental injury, as an unscientific medical misdiagnosis, or medical myth, falsely-accused of SBS, wrongfully convicted of child abuse, alternative causes.
By Christina England. Over the years, parents have more and more commonly been blamed of child abuse if their child is diagnosed with the "triad" of injuries associated with Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) after receiving a vaccine. The "triad" includes bleeding inside the brain, bleeding behind the eyes and swelling or inflammation of the brain.. When a medical professional suspects that a baby has been violently shaken, they will examine the baby for the "triad" of injuries associated with SBS. These are subdural haematoma (bleeds inside the brain), retinal haemorrhages (bleeds behind the eyes) and cerebral edema (swelling or inflammation inside the brain).. The Triad of Injuries. Bleeding Inside the Brain. Norma Guthkelch, a retired neurosurgeon, wrote the first description of Shaken Baby Syndrome in 1971 in his paper Infantile Subdural Haematoma and its Relationship to Whiplash Injuries, in which he discussed 23 cases of ...
Parents of a 4-month-old baby who died of shaken baby syndrome in 2007 are facing the courts in connection with the fatal incident of child abuse, according to the Clarion Ledger. Judge Tomie Green believes that both parents, who live in Jackson, Mississippi, are guilty of child neglect and abuse that occurred on multiple occasions. Monday, July 27, father Christopher Brown Sr., age 28, told Judge Green that the babys injuries occurred when he was throwing the child into the air and the infant accidentally landed on the floor. Brown claims that he shook his son because the child appeared to be in a daze. At Mondays sentencing, a forensic pathologist testified that the babys death resulted from shaken baby syndrome, despite Browns story. According to the autopsy, little Brown Jr. had suffered previous injuries, as well, for which the couple said they did not seek medical ...

Shaken baby syndrome is brain injury that occurs when someone shakes a baby or throws a baby against an object. It is a form of child abuse. It may happen to children up to 5 years of age, but it is most common in babies younger than 1 year old.. It is never okay to shake or throw a young child. It may not leave any obvious sign of injury, but it can cause serious long-term problems or even death.

Pan-Cake Kidney - A rare variety of Cross Fused Ectopic Kidney - Type Congenital Anomaly. This Ultrasonography Video shows two kidneys fused across medial aspects giving the appearance of a rounded PanCake.
Urinary tract, originating from mesoblast and expanding from cranial to caudal, completes its development after 3 developmental phases: pronephros, mesonephros, and metanephros. The third phase gives rise to the permanent kidneys. Initially, they localize at ventral portion of sacrum and pelvis, close to each other. Along with abdominal and pelvic growth and decrease of body inclination, they follow an ascending route and reach their permanent sites by coming in contact with the adrenal gland at 9th week. First, hila face ventral aspect, however, during ascent, it displays 90 degree medial turn. The hilus of a kidney that attained its final permanent position, faces anterolateral aspect. During ascent, they proceed through a bifurcation formed by umbilical arteries. If one of the kidneys fail to pass this point, it remains within the pelvis next to the common iliac artery. This kidney is called as pelvic or ectopic kidney, and is associated with malrotation [1, 2]. Renal ectopy is a relatively ...

Shaken baby syndrome (SBS) commonly describes a combination of subdural hematoma, retinal hemorrhage, and diffuse axonal injury (DAI) as the triad of diagnostic criteria. In some, the presence of rib or other fractures is also taken as a sign of abuse.(1-3). The basic issue to be reviewed here is whether or not in some instances in which a father, family member, or caretaker has been accused of causing the death of an infant or child from the SBS, the true cause of death was a catastrophic vaccine reaction.. This article concerns an unpublished series of 25 cases involving accusations or convictions for the SBS, largely collected by attorney and jury counselor Toni Blake of San Diego, California (personal communication, 2000), as well as some from personal knowledge, which have the following features: 1) All occurred in fragile infants born from complicated pregnancies. Problems included prematurity, low birth weights, drug/alcohol problems, diabetic ...
Shaken baby syndrome (SBS), also known as abusive head trauma (AHT), is a diagnosis that may include a combination of findings including broken bones, skull fractures, brain bleeding and retinal hemorrhages. SBS occurs when a baby is shaken repeatedly, often by a frustrated caretaker in an effort to quiet an inconsolable baby. A babys head is disproportionately large and the blood vessels are fragile, which makes the brain and eyes more susceptible to bleeding from a shaking injury. Most children who are victims of SBS are under one year of age, with many of them being under six months of age. Injuries from SBS can lead to permanent visual and developmental disabilities, or even death.. ...
The article pointed out a case from the 90s where Audrey Edmunds, a day care provider, was charged with murder, convicted by a jury, and sentenced to 18 years in prison. In that trial, expert testimony indicated that a child had suffered "critical injuries that were the hallmarks of Shaken Baby Syndrome." The article pointed out the three key injuries that point to SBS --retinal hemorrhage, bleeding in the brain and brain swelling. However, if the new research proves accurate, a diagnosis of SBS might fail to account for other possible causes for the injuries usually attributed to SBS, such as "falls from a short height," which "can cause fatal head injuries that appear very similar to injuries routinely diagnosed as SBS." Indeed, years later, "one of the physicians that testified against Edmunds told a judge that he was no longer confident that the injuries were inflicted by Edmunds and that they could have occurred many hours before the baby was dropped off." In the end, ...
Shaken baby syndrome is a term weve come to hear too often in news reports. Its an entirely preventable form of child abuse caused by frustration or a lack of experience in caring for infants. Caring for an infant can be challenging. It can be difficult to know why a babys crying or how fragile babies really are. A babys cries can be unnerving to people unaccustomed to the sound. In an effort to stop the crying, a caretaker may pick up the baby and, out of frustration and anger, shake the baby to quiet it. But babies have big heads and their neck muscles are too weak to support the head. Shaking a baby rattles the brain, which can result in brain damage, blindness, or even death.. Experts from the Child Abuse Prevention Project offer a few suggestions on ways a parent can quiet their nerves when caring for a crying baby. Consider offering the baby a pacifier. Take the baby for a ride in a stroller or in a car. Put the baby ...

Wittmeier and Mulder wrote that it is crucial that primary care providers and other clinicians discuss container baby syndromes components with their expectant patients before delivery.. "It is imperative for prevention messaging to begin during pregnancy and be reinforced during the postpartum period… It would be ideal if parents/guardians could receive this information first from prenatal educators and prenatal care providers (midwives, obstetricians, family doctors). Postpartum nurses could reinforce this information before discharge from the hospital, and public health nurses could explain the importance of such prevention activities and demonstrate strategies in the home environment," they wrote.. "Ideally, information pertaining to preventing the development of a head positional preference could [also] be delivered by family physicians and pediatricians who see infants during the first few weeks of life," Wittmeier and Mulder added..

Purpose: Retinal hemorrhage has been reported to occur in association with various types of non-accidental head injury (NAHI). These include subdural hemorrhage (SDH), subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), epidural hemorrhage (EDH), and skull fracture. The purposes of this study were to evaluate the association between the presence of retinal hemorrhage and the presence of various types of NAHI and to evaluate the association between the presence of extra-cranial skeletal fracture and retinal hemorrhage. We tested the hypotheses that there would be an association between the presence of retinal hemorrhage and SDH and an association between the presence of extra-cranial skeletal fracture and retinal hemorrhage in patients suspected to be victims of NAHI.. Methods: This was a retrospective cross-sectional study of patients less than 5 years of age who were evaluated for NAHI with any of the following diagnoses: SDH, SAH, EDH, or skull fracture. A total of 210 charts were reviewed. After exclusion of 137 ...
Benign extraaxial fluid collections of infancy: Velocity of head growth is abnormally high in the first few months of life due to the accumulation of CSF over the brains convexities. The rate of head growth then tends to normalize by 15-18 months. Physical examination and developmental status are usually normal, although occasionally a mild and transient delay occurs in motor development. Other descriptive terms for this same condition include benign subdural collections of infancy, benign communicating hydrocephalus, idiopathic pericerebral swelling, benign enlargement of the subarachnoid spaces, hypodense extracerebral fluid collections, pseudohydrocephalus megalocephaly, extraventricular obstructive hydrocephalus, benign hygromas, and subarachnoid effusion. This is generally a benign, self-limited condition that presents between the ages of 3 and 12 months and resolves spontaneously by 2-3 years of age. Surgical intervention rarely is required and is reserved for those patients who ...
... (BPH), benign enlargement of the prostate (BEP), adenofibromyomatous hyperplasia and incorrectly referred to benign prostatic hypertrophy, is an increase in size of the prostate. When sufficiently large, the nodules compress the urethral canal to cause partial, or sometimes virtually complete, obstruction of the urethra, which interferes with the normal flow of urine. It leads to symptoms of urinary hesitancy, frequent urination, dysuria (painful urination), increased risk of urinary tract infections, and urinary retention. Although prostate specific antigen levels may be elevated in these patients because of increased organ volume and inflammation due to urinary tract infections, BPH does not lead to cancer or increase the risk of cancer.[citation needed]. ...

Fourteen children (10 boys and 4 girls, aged 8 to 17 years) had 20 pheochromocytomas treated over a 36-year period from 1959 to 1995 inclusive. Nine patients had 11 tumors before 1980; 5 children had 9 tumors up to 1987. There were no new children with pheochromocytomas at our hospital from 1988 to 1995. Hypertension, sweating, headache, and visual blurring were the most common symptoms and signs (average 5 months). The most reliable biochemical investigations were the urinary catecholamines and norepinephrine. Before 1980, intravenous pyelography and angiography were most successful in localizing the tumor, but since then ultrasonography and computerized tomography have been the radiological investigations of choice. Early involvement of the anesthesiologist in the preoperative control of the hypertension is essential; blood pressure (BP) control was achieved with phenoxybenzamine. The main anesthetic drugs ...
Diagnosis accuracy of BUS for acute nephroureterolithiasis is highly variable depending on the protocol used and on the training of the operator. Its use appears to be safe to rule in renal colic as the most probable diagnosis and to rule out renal colic caused by a stone likely to necessitate rescue therapy. Various protocols can improve diagnosis accuracy (fluid bolus prior to BUS, KUB x-ray, bladder duplex ultrasound and urinalaysis). Definitive value of BUS for ED diagnosis of renal colic will likely be answered in upcoming clinical trials.

Patients were matched for age (± 5 y) and sex, type and osmolality of contrast medium, and date (± 4 d) of procedure. 34 patients reacting during computed tomography were matched to 2 controls each; 15 patients who had reactions during intravenous pyelography, digital subtraction angiography, and venography were matched to 1 control each. Patients who reacted (n = 49) and patients in the control group (n = 83) were similar with respect to antihistamine and corticosteroid medicafion use ...
GU exams covered by North Broward Radiologists professionals include intravenous pyelography, cystography, retrograde urethrography and hysterosalpingogram.
Computed tomography urography (CTU) is today the imaging method used to investigate patients with suspected urinary tract malignancy, replacing the old imaging method intravenous pyelography (IVP) about a decade ago. The downside of this shift was that the effective radiation dose to the examined patient was eight times higher for CTU compared to IVP. Based on four different studies, the present thesis focused on efforts to reduce the CTU radiation dose.. In study I, the number of cysts and solid lesions in the separate scan phases was evaluated in 57 patients undergoing four-phase CTU 1997-98. The number of scans was reduced from four to three when the nephrographic scan was abolished following study I.. Study II registered the diameter of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and the presenting symptoms in the total number of patients (n=232) diagnosed with RCC between 1997 and 2003. The results from study II showed that the critical size for RCCs to cause macroscopic hematuria was ≥ 4 cm. Study III ...
Angel was then, and is even now, one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen and I have seen many in my thirty years as a child abuse pediatrician. Yet, to look at her today, asleep against her foster mothers shoulder, one could never guess at the devastation wrought upon her.. I first met Angel, then only a few months old, in the pediatric intensive care unit just before Christmas. She had been admitted unresponsive the night before. Her father had told the hospital staff that he had picked her up from her crib tochange her soaked diaper and as he did so she slipped from his grasp and fell back into her crib. He said she went limp and stopped breathing. He rushed her into his car and drove wildly to the local hospital. Eventually, Angel ended up in my hospital.. I was called in to see her after a CT scan showed subdural hematomas. Later, an MRI found evidence of parenchymal injury. An ophthalmology exam found such severe hemorrhages retinal hemorrhages that they were ...

Abusive head trauma (AHT) is the leading cause of death in child abuse cases in the United States. AHT results from injuries caused by someone vigorously shaking an infant.
Shaken Baby Syndrome has been prevalent in the news lately, not from an increase in incidents, but from a larger push for awareness of this painful topic. The Womans Hospital of Greensboro has created an "evidence-based shaken baby prevention program" that will begin educating parents after they have given birth but before they are discharged.. The goal of the program is to significantly reduce Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) in North Carolina by 50 percent in the next five years. Standing out, this intervention program is the largest and most comprehensive in the nation. By sharing this information with all new parents, the hospital will benefit an estimated 125,000 babies a year.. SBS affects between 1,200 to 1,400 babies a year, and one out of four dont survive. The brain injury resulting from this type of brain trauma includes seizures, mental retardation, delayed development, paralysis, impaired cognitive function, broken bones and more. When the child is ...
Of the many lies and myths about vaccines that stubbornly persist despite all evidence showing them not only to be untrue but to be risibly, pseudoscientifically untrue, among whose number are myths that vaccines cause autism, sudden infant death syndrome, and a syndrome that so resembles shaken baby syndrome (more correctly called abusive head trauma) that shaken baby syndrome is a misdiagnosis for vaccine injury, the lie that vaccines are being used for population control is one of the most persistent. In this myth, vaccines are not designed to protect the populations of impoverished nations against diseases like the measles, …. ...
The anterior pituitary gland is perfused by its portal venous system, which passes down the hypophyseal stalk. This unusual vascular supply likely contributes to the frequency of PAp. Some postulate that a gradual enlarging pituitary tumor becomes impacted at the diaphragmatic notch, compressing and distorting the hypophyseal stalk and its vascular supply. This deprives the anterior pituitary gland and the tumor itself of vascular supply, apoplectically causing ischemia and subsequent necrosis. Another theory stipulates that rapid expansion of the tumor outstrips its vascular supply, resulting in ischemia and necrosis. This explanation is doubtful, since most tumors that undergo apoplexy are slow growing.. The pituitary gland is contained in the sella turcica, which is a midline depression in the sphenoid bone. Inferiorly, the sella turcica has a thin floor of cortical bone, below which lies the air-containing sphenoid sinus. Inferior extension of an adenoma causes either remodeling of the floor ...
VASCULAR SUPPLY AND LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE Splenic artery The spleen is supplied exclusively from the splenic artery (see Fig. 70.7). This is the largest branch of the coeliac axis and its course is among the most tortuous in the body. From its origin the artery runs a little way inferiorly, then turns rapidly to the left to run initially horizontally above the level of the neck of the pancreas, before ascending as it passes more laterally. It is less steeply inclined than the body and tail of the pancreas and so comes to lie posterior to the superior border of the gland. It lies in multiple loops or even coils which appear above the superior border of the pancreas and descend to lie behind the gland. The splenic artery lies anterior to the left kidney and left suprarenal gland and runs in the splenorenal ligament posterior to the tail of the pancreas. It divides into two or three main branches before entering the hilum of the spleen (Fig. 71.1). As these branches enter the hilum they divide further into
Many different clinical diagnosis overlap with the symptoms of child abuse. A keen clinical approach is necessary to ensure all children being abused are identified without over-testing or the social impact of a child abuse investigation. Ultimately a clinician must evaluate all possible reasons for findings on history and physical and make a decision about the risk probability of abuse.. The most common physical finding in child abuse is bruising. Many disease processes may mimic bruising therefore the American Academy of Pediatrics has published guidelines regarding the evaluation for bleeding disorders when child abuse is suspected. These guidelines focus on detailed medical, social and family history in addition to a full exam.. Fractures are often a concerning sign for child ...
The blood vessels around the retina can become damaged by injury or disease and may bleed, causing temporary or permanent loss of visual accuracy. Because the cells of the retina are so dense and sensitive, even small injuries to the blood vessels can translate into vision problems. Diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure also affect the blood vessels of the eye. Retinal hemorrhages can be caused by injuries, usually forceful blows to the head during accidents and falls, as well as by many health conditions. In infants, retinal hemorrhage is frequently associated with child abuse and has been termed shaken baby syndrome. People with high blood pressure (hypertension) may develop hypertensive retinopathy, where blood vessels in the retina become damaged from increased blood pressure ...

For years babies have died with what appeared to be no injuries. No noticeable blunt force trauma or external wounds. The problem was these small children were being shaken very hard by a parent or care giver and this violence damaged the newly developing brain. The baby with its weak, undeveloped neck muscles could not hold the head safely in place as the body was being whipped about. Many times after the actual shaking the baby is thrown into a crib. This rapid acceleration followed by a sudden deceleration as the child slams onto the mattress causes brain tissue damage. This causes enormous pressure in the babys skull. Blood vessels are compressed and the structure of the infants delicate brain suffers irreversible damage. In the medical and criminal world we call this shaken baby syndrome (SBS).. Unfortunately there are a lot of children trying to function in our society that are a product of SBS. As an ...

Usually the trauma is caused by a very strong, sudden hit to the head or something penetrating the skull.Closed Head TraumaInjuries to the head cause the brain to hit the inside of the skull. This can result in bruising or bleeding of the brain. There are multiple possible causes, including automobile accidents, motorcycle or bicycle accidents, and falls. In infants, shaken baby syndrome can have the same affect.Open Head TraumaAccidents or violence that causes the skull to fracture or be penetrated can cause seriou...

Executive summary: "Blue baby" operation. Surgeon Alfred Blalock, in collaboration with cardiologist Helen B. Taussig and surgical assistant Vivien Thomas, developed an operation to treat tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart defect that robs the blood of oxygen (turning a newborns skin somewhat bluish, leading to the afflictions common name, "blue baby" syndrome). Blalock performed the first Blalock-Taussig operation on 29 November 1944, attaching an artery leaving the heart to an artery leading to the lungs, thus giving the blood additional oxygenation.

While NYC children continue to have a lower rate of injury death than children nationwide, injuries still pose a risk to New York City children. From 1999 to 2013, there were 723 injury deaths among NYC children. Unintentional injury death rates have declined since 1999, however, rates are highest among children living in very high-poverty areas and among Black children. Overall, intentional (homicide and suicide) injury deaths accounted for approximately one-third of all deaths. Rates were relatively constant between 1999 and 2013, but increased among Black and Asian children. Rates were also consistently higher among children in high-poverty areas when compared to children in low- and medium-poverty ...
Email. The lives and racing careers of Headturner and Jumpn Beduino will forever be linked. First, the 3-year-old Quarter Horse half-siblings are out of the same dam, Imjumpn. Furthermore, they seem to peak on the racetrack at the same time. Jumpn Beduino and Headturner were first and second in the Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Racing Association Futurity at Los Alamitos last October. Last weekend, they both won major derbies. Headturner, a gelding by Check Him Out, won Friday s $214,400 El Primero Del Ano Derby. The following night, Jumpn Beduino, a filly by Chicks Beduino, won the $175,500 La Primera Del Ano Derby for fillies. Both started from post 9. What are the chances of that happening, said Theresa DeNike, who co-owns Jumpn Beduino with her husband, Ed. A brother and sister winning derbies on back-to-back nights and from the same post position. While it may seem illogical for half-siblings to be the same age, Quarter Horse breeders are allowed to register more than one foal from a mare ...

And believe me; roller derby gear makes people come up and ask you questions. People under the age of twenty-five have absolutely no idea what you are doing and come up to ask you what the heck roller derby is, and people over the age of thirty-five remember roller derby in its televised, staged, brawling heyday and get psyched about it happening here (only now it has rules, people-- no elbowing in the face or clotheslining allowed). Children under the age of five have no idea what roller skates are because theyve only ever seen rollerblades, so they get really excited about them. Its very cute. But regardless of the age of the person Im having a conversation with, when Im rolling around on my trusty skates (and yes I did deck them out with skull-and-crossbones laces and-- to protect the toes-- duct tape with flames all over it) somehow my role as a mom doesnt seem to come up in discussion unless I choose to bring it up. To tell you the truth, thats really refreshing ...
After stretching, the girls enter the rink and line up their drinks along the plexiglass. Lines painted on the cement floor outline the track. Most leagues play flat track derby instead of the traditional banked track because its cheaper, easier to learn on and results in less injuries. With their coach out of town, volunteer and occasional cameraman Man-O-Pause steps in to lead the teams. After a few warm-up laps the girls do drills like swerving, crouching and stops, practice maneuvers like dick in a box, then do endurance. Man-O-Pause, with a roller derby Bratz doll affixed to his helmet, follows behind the girls and barks orders. The teams are preparing for their February 13th bout, Love Hurts, between the Back Bay Bombshells and the Huntington Heartbreakers. Although each girl is assigned to a specific team, they all practice together, learn the same techniques and occasionally play on teams different than their own to even out the talent, challenging themselves and making the bouts more ...
Az Apache Derby egy Cloudscape Inc. nevű oaklandi, kaliforniai start-up cégtől származik, melyet 1996-ban alapított Nat Wyatt és Howard Torf azzal a céllal, hogy Java adatbázis technológiát fejlesszenek. 1997-ben adták ki az adatbázis motor első kiadást, melyet JBMS-nek neveztek el. Ezt követően a terméket átnevezték Cloudscape-re, majd az újabb kiadásokat hathavonta adták ki. 1999-ben az Informix Software Inc., felvásárolta a Cloudscape Inc.-t, 2001-ben pedig az IBM megvette az Informix Software adatbázis állóeszközeit, többek közt a Cloudscape-et is. Az adatbázis motort új márkanéven IBM Cloudscape-nek nevezték el. A szoftverkiadások folytatódtak, a fő hangsúlyt a beágyazott használatra tették az IBM Java termékeivel és köztes szoftvereivel. 2004 augusztusában az IBM közreadta a kódot az Apache Software Foundation-nak Derby néven, amelyre indítottak egy inkubátor projekt, melyet az Apache DB projekt szponzorált.[5] 2005 júliusában a Derby ...
