Abstract:

Exanthems are common skin diseases in childhood and are usually related to viral infections. The infection triggers the exanthema directly (e. g. varicella, herpes simplex, enteroviruses), via an immune response (paraviral exanthems as Gianotti-Crosti-syndrome, Pityriasis rosea) or by interactions with drugs (e. g. amoxicillin exanthem in patients with infectious mononucleosis).

Paraviral exanthems are distinct skin diseases related to infections with different viruses. While many viral infections are a direct result of the infection, paraviral exanthems reflect the response of the immune system to the viruses, which cannot be identified in the skin. Typical paraviral exanthems include Gianotti-Crosti syndrome, Pityriasis rosea, Pityriais lichenoides, Papular-purpuric gloves and socks syndrome, and asymmetrical periflexural exanthema. Unilateral mediothoracic exanthema, eruptive pseudoangiomatosis are not so common and eruptive hypomelanosis have been described recently.

Severe Distal Defect. Correction of Equine Foot valgus and Tibial Deformity. Curved Juvenile Back. Management of the Parallel Valve Flat Foot by the Technique of Medial Osteoarthritis (Astragalus - Escafoidea). Tumor of Giant Cells in the Thoracic Spine. About a case.

Abstract:

Deformities in the feet are common occurrence in children with Cerebral Infantile Paralysis, can produce multiple functional deficits. Among these deformities stands out after the flat foot, Hallux Valgus (HV), which causes a painful foot, which is not plantigrade or stable, leading to a loss of the pre-requisites of walking for those wandering patients, and impossibility of use of orthesis for both ambulatory and for those with potential for standing and walking. HV is a component of the ankle-foot malalineation complex that is often present in children with cerebral palsy, this deformity is acquired during the years of growth, as a result of the intrinsic and extrinsic muscle imbalance. In this research was raised to compare the surgical management of the deformity of hallux valgus paralytic by the technique of fusion technical vs. Kramer Bösch in patients with PCI, review the group age, gender and type of motor dysfunction, radiological characteristics pre-operative and post operative, identify complications associated with the procedure. This study is of type documentary, retrospective, descriptive, observational, analytical level of cohort, correlation and evaluation. You were evaluated 31 patients (49 feet ) met the inclusion criteria. There was clearly satisfactory results for both techniques; still the technique of percutaneous distal osteotomy of the first metatarsal with Kramer-Bosch technique most used in the clinic of NeurOrthopedic

Title: Mothers of preterm infants hospitalized in neonatal intensive care: Study of the circumstances
Biography:

FATIHA BENNAOUI is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, graduate in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine from Medecine School ; Cadi Ayad University ; Marrakesh, and health services researcher in the section of General Pediatrics. She leads the faculty and post-doctoral fellows in Neonatology, in Newborn Intensive Care Units at University Hospital ; Marrakesh. In addition, she is actively involved in the perinatl education of Yale medical students, attending physicians, fellows, residents, nurses, and physician associate students, she has for many years served as medical faculty. She has more than 5 years of experience as a clinical neonatologist and over 10 years of experience in pediatric medicine.

Dr. BENNAOUI has been an invited lecturer nationally and internationally, focusing on analyse of pediatric medicine. She has many publications ; more than 12 papers indexed in scopus and in pubmed. She has served on the Moroccan Association of Pediatrics.

Abstract:

Introduction: Prematurity is a common condition. It is responsible in Morocco for a morbidity and neonatal mortality rate.

Objective: The objective of the study is to assess the conditions of women who give birth prematurely

Materials and methods: All preterm infants hospitalized during the year 2016 were included in this study. The analysis of the files identified the different parameters’ mothers.

Results: The rate of admission of premature babies to the service is 19%. The most common maternal age was between 18 and 35 years of age (80%). 68% of women are multiparous, and more than 40% of women have a history of miscarriage. Pregnancy was not followed in 27% of cases, antenatal corticosteroids were administered in 45% of cases, pregnancy was multiple in 25%, premature rupture of membranes was noted in 36% of cases, and maternal infection was 33%. Birthing was predominant with a rate of 73%. The majority of premature babies admitted to the service (64%) come from birth delivered at the university hospital center.  Non-induced prematurity accounts for the majority of cases with 78% of cases. The overall prematurity mortality rate is 62% among all preterm infants

Conclusion: Prevention would reduce the rate of prematurity and improve its management, especially through close obstetric-pediatric collaboration.

Abstract:

Blood culture provides an undeniable ideal aid in the diagnosis of neonate infection, its result is reliable. The aim of our study was to evaluate the bacteriological profile of bacteremia, admitted newborns from maternity hospital IBN TOFAIL.

Retrospective study on the cases of newborns hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care, University hospital Mohamed VI,Marrakesh, originating from the delivery room of the gynecology-obstetric department IBN TOFAIL, over a period of 6 months, June to November 2016.Of the 125 blood cultures collected, 43 were positive, representing an over all positivity rate of 34.4%. Positive staphylococcal coagulase negative hemocultures were 27. Other bacteremias were 16, consisting essentially of multiresistant germs with the predominance of Klebsiella pneumoniae (5 cases), followed by Acinetobacter Baumanii (4 cases) and Serratia marcescens in 3 cases.

The bacteremia on admission ; especially to multiresistant germs presents a major problem of therapeutic management.We emphasize the necessity to improve the conditions of delivery in our context and to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.

Biography:

Dr Sura Al-Rawabdeh a senior specialist in Pediatric pathology working in the royal medical services in Jordan.She got  fellowship training in pediatric pathology. In nationwide children’s hospital Columbus Ohio USA 

Abstract:

The patient is an 11-year-old boy who presented with a 1-day history of abdominal pain and emesis but no fever. His past medical history was unremarkable. In particular, there was no history of hemorrhagic problems or systemic disease. The family history was also unremarkable. On physical examina- tion, he had persistent and well-localized right lower quad- rant and right flank tenderness at the expected location of his appendix (McBurney’s point). The laboratory findings were unremarkable. WBC was 4.9 K/microliter with the following differentials: 49% segmented neutrophils, 41% lymphocytes, 9% monocytes, and 1% eosinophils. There was no evidence of anemia or thrombocytopenia (hemoglobin = 13 g/dL, hematocrit = 36%, and platelet count = 291 K/microliter). A computed tomography scan (CT-Scan) of the abdomen showed an enlarged appendix without inflammation; how- ever, ultrasound images showed a fluid-filled appendix with a diameter within the upper rages of normal. A subsequent physical examination revealed an increase in abdominal pain and tenderness, and, consequently, the patient underwent a laparoscopic appendectomy.

Gross evaluation showed a pink-tan appendix, measuring 8.3 cm in length and 1 cm in diameter. The serosal surface was unremarkable and cut surface demonstrated no fecalith. Microscopically, hematoxylin-eosin-stained sections of the tip of the appendix revealed numerous lipid-laden xanthoma cells in the mucosa which were surrounded by lymphocytes and plasma cells admixed with multiple mult- inucleated giant cells containing cholesterol clefts.The rest of the mucosa showed patchy mild neutrophilic infiltration.

The postoperative clinical course was unremarkable. The patient was discharged home the following day and had an unremarkable physical examination on a follow-up visit three weeks later
