Pediatric Headache 

Pediatric Headache is a common reason for pediatric patients to seek medical care. Headaches can result from any of a number of causes, including genetic predisposition, trauma, an intracranial mass, a metabolic or vascular disease, or sinusitis. Recognition that pediatric headaches can result from primary and secondary causes is crucial to their treatment.

Facts about headaches

A headache is pain or discomfort in the head or face area. Headaches can be single or recurrent in nature, and localized to one or more areas of the head and face.
Facts about headaches in children:
·         Forty percent (or more) of all children have had a headache by the age of 7.
·         Among 7-year-olds, approximately 4 percent have frequent headaches.
·         By the age of 15, 75 percent of children have had a headache.
·         Only one child in 40,000 is found to have a brain tumor causing the headache.
·         About 2 to 10 percent of headaches are due to an underlying brain abnormality.
·         Five to 29 percent of children complain of headaches.

Osler-Weber-Rendu Disease (Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia)

Osler-Weber-Rendu Disease (Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia)Osler-Weber-Rendu disease (OWRD) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder that affects blood vessels throughout the body (causing vascular dysplasia) and results in a tendency for bleeding. The prognosis varies, depending on the severity of symptoms; generally, it is good, as long as bleeding is promptly recognized and adequately controlled.
 HHT is manifested by mucocutaneous telangiectases and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), a potential source of serious morbidity and mortality.  Lesions can affect the nasopharynx, central nervous system (CNS), lung, liver, and spleen, as well as the urinary tract, gastrointestinal (GI) tract, conjunctiva, trunk, arms, and fingers
 What Causes Osler-Weber-Rendu Syndrome? People with OWR inherit an abnormal gene that causes their blood vessels to form incorrectly. OWR is an autosomal dominant disorder. This means that only one parent needs to have the abnormal gene to pass it on to their children. OWR doesn’t skip a generation. However, the signs and symptoms may vary greatly between family members. If you have OWR, it’s possible that your child could have a milder or more severe course than you.
In very rare cases, a child can be born with OWR even when neither parent has the syndrome. This happens when one of the genes that cause OWR mutates in an egg or sperm cell. Diagnosing Osler-Weber-Rendu Syndrome The presence of telangiectasias is one indication of OWR. Other clues that might lead to a diagnosis include:·         frequent nosebleeds
·         anemia
·         bloody stools
·         having a parent with the syndrome
If you have OWR, you should be screened for AVMs in the lungs and brain. This can help your doctor detect a potentially dangerous problem before something goes wrong. An MRI can screen for problems in the brain. CT scans can detect lung AVMs.Your doctor can monitor the ongoing symptoms of this syndrome through regular checkups.Genetic testing isn’t usually needed to diagnose OWR. These tests are expensive and may not be available in all circumstances. People with a family history of OWR who are interested in genetic testing should discuss their options with a genetic counselor.

Acute stroke in sickle cell disease

Acute stroke in sickle cell disease

Stroke is a common and potentially devastating manifestation of sickle cell disease (SCD) that can affect children and adults. Challenges in management include distinguishing acute stroke from other cerebrovascular manifestations of the disease such as meningitis, cerebral malaria, or seizure disorder, and distinguishing acute ischemic stroke from hemorrhagic stroke. Care of the patient with an acute stroke requires specialized expertise in exchange transfusion practices.

Facts about Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a term used often to describe those who have abnormalities of body movement, balance and posture occurring from abnormal neurological processes. The mechanism(s) that causes CP occurs more frequently during prenatal life as the fetus develops, from infections, abnormalities of the placenta, fetal stroke, genetic abnormalities, developmental abnormalities of the fetal brain, trauma to the mother, premature delivery, and other causes, or after birth from inborn metabolic disorders, epilepsy, neurotransmitter disorders, and other causes.
Here are 6 interesting facts you need to know about CP:
  • Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common motor disability in childhood.
  • CP affects 1 in 500 newborns.
  • CP is a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone and or posture.
  • Globally, over 17 million people have CP.
  • Symptoms of CP vary from person to person.
  • There is no known cure for CP, but treatment can improve the lives of those who have the condition. It is important to begin a treatment program as early as possible.
