MTHFR (C677T) polymorphism and PR (PROGINS) mutation as genetic factors for preterm delivery, fetal death and low birth weight: A Northeast Indian population based study
Conclusions Both MTHFR C677T polymorphism and PR (PROGINS) mutation are evident genetic risk factors associated with the susceptibility of PTD, negative pregnancy outcome and LBW. MTHFR C677T may be used as a prognostic marker to stratify subpopulation of pregnancy cases predisposed to PTD; thereby controlling the risks associated with PTD. (Source: Meta Gene)

Do nurses provide a safe sleep environment for infants in the hospital setting? An integrative review.
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: The research indicates that there has been a plateau in safe sleeping practices in the hospital setting. Some infants continue to be placed in positions that increase the risk for SIDS. The research also shows that some nurses are not following the 2011 AAP recommendations for a safe sleep environment. Clearly, nurses need additional education on SIDS prevention and the safe sleep environment, and additional measures need to be adopted to ensure that all nurses and all families understand the research supporting the AAP recommendation that supine sleep is best. Further work is needed to promot...

Risk factors for postpartum depressive symptoms in low-income women with very low-birth-weight infants.
CONCLUSIONS: On the basis of our findings, we recommend that low-income women should be screened for symptoms of anxiety, posttraumatic stress, and postpartum depression on their infants' admission to the NICU. When this is not feasible, we advise NICU healthcare providers to assess women for familial support, maternal age, posttraumatic stress related to their infants birth, and anxiety to determine which mothers are at the greatest risk for postpartum depressive symptoms. Screening for postpartum depression in the NICU can aid in early identification and treatment, thereby decreasing negative consequences for mothers and...

Treatment of a Fetal Tracheal Obstruction by Fetoscopy and Laser
We report below a case of in utero tracheoscopy with laser collapse of a bronchogenic cyst obstructing the fetal trachea. The patient was referred for ultrasonography at 24 weeks of gestation because of fetal hydrops. Tracheoscopy was performed via fetoscopic approach using a single trocar under local anesthesia with lidocaine and ultrasound guidance. This revealed an image suggestive of a cyst obstructing the middle third at the anterior base of the trachea. Coagulation using a diode laser enabled us to collapse this fluid-filled cyst with three 10-watt bursts (3 times 3 s) and to visualize a completely unobstructed trach...

Recurrent Oral and Genital Ulcers in an Infant: Neonatal Presentation of Pediatric Behçet Disease
We report the case of a 1‐month‐old infant who presented with severe recurrent genital ulcerations and at 6 months developed recurrent oral ulcerations. Her orogenital ulcerations continue to recur. Human leukocyte antigen testing revealed HLA‐B51 and B44 positivity. This is a case of pediatric Behçet disease in the neonatal period. Behçet disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis of recurrent genital and oral ulcerations in infants and children. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Seeing Double: Annular Diaper Rash in Twins
We report a case of dichorionic, diamniotic twins who developed similar erythematous, annular, erosive plaques in the inguinal folds in the first few weeks of life that were refractory to topical antifungals and oral antibiotics. The twins were found to have high transaminase levels, antinuclear antibody positivity, and anti‐SSS/Ro) and anti‐SSB/La autoantibodies. The rash resolved without scarring by 7 months of age with the use of low‐potency topical corticosteroids. We suggest that physicians consider neonatal lupus erythematosus in neonates with atypical eruptions occurring in sun‐protected skin. (Source: Pediatric Dermatology)

Antenatal Maternal Anxiety Predicts Variations in Neural Structures Implicated in Anxiety Disorders in Newborns
Antenatal maternal anxiety predicts offspring neurodevelopment and psychopathology, though the degree to which these associations reflect postnatal influences is unclear. To limit this possibility, we assessed newborn neuronal microstructures using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and assessed neonatal microstructure variation in relation to antenatal anxiety and in prediction of infant socio-emotional behavior at age one.

Successful Transition to Sulfonylurea in Neonatal Diabetes, Developmental Delay, and Seizures (DEND Syndrome) due to R50P KCNJ11 mutation
Activating mutations in the KCNJ11 gene which encodes for the Kir6.2 subunit of the ATP-sensitive potassium channel of the pancreatic beta cell cause majority of PND. Besides diabetes, some patients with this mutation have developmental delay and epilepsy, thus designated to have DEND syndrome [1,2]. Sulfonylurea therapy had generally resulted in good diabetes control in patients with PND due to Kir6.2 mutations but not in those with DEND syndrome [3].

Pathophysiology and neuroprotection of global and focal perinatal brain injury: lessons from animal models
Arterial ischemic stroke occurs most frequently in term newborns than in the elderly, and brain immaturity affects mechanisms of ischemic injury and recovery. The susceptibility to injury of the brain was assumed to be lower in the perinatal period as compared to childhood. This concept was recently challenged by clinical studies showing marked motor disabilities after stroke in neonates, with the severity of motor and cortical sensory deficits similar in both perinatal and childhood ischemic stroke.

Impact of bilirubin-induced neurologic dysfunction on neurodevelopmental outcomes
Bilirubin-induced neurologic dysfunction (BIND) is the constellation of neurologic sequelae following milder degrees of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia than are associated with kernicterus. Clinically, BIND may manifest after the neonatal period as developmental delay, cognitive impairment, disordered executive function, and behavioral and psychiatric disorders. However, there is controversy regarding the relative contribution of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia versus other risk factors to the development of later neurodevelopmental disorders in children with BIND.

Postpartum Depression Can Start As Soon As You're Pregnant
Having a new baby is supposed to be a joyful experience -- but for many women, it comes with some significant mental health challenges. While up to 70 percent of women report some experience of "baby blues" after giving birth, postpartum depression affects roughly 16 percent of new mothers. But not all women experience postpartum depression the same way: In a recent study, researchers from the University of North Carolina identified three distinct subtypes of postpartum depression. According to the study, some women experience the onset of depressive symptoms during pregnancy, which can result in a greater risk of de...
