Cocuk Enfeksiyon Dergisi , 2010,
Abstract: Leptospirosis is a zoonotic infection caused by a spirochete of the genus Leptospira, which may affect both humans and animals and is common worldwide. The disease may lead to distinct clinical pictures in humans varying from subclinical infection to multiple organ dysfunction and even death. In this paper, we presented a 8-year-old male patient admitted with the complaints of fever, malaise, fatigue and night sweating, who had been feeding a pet rabbit in the house, and who had jaundice of the sclera and skin, a rash, gastrointestinal bleeding and hepatosplenomegaly found on examination. He developed encephalopathy, bleeding diathesis, hepatic and renal failure; and was diagnosed with leptospirosis based on the clinical symptoms and laboratory tests. After 14-days of therapy with crystallized penicillin and intensive supportive treatment, the neurological and hematological anomalies improved as well as the renal and hepatic dysfunction. In conclusion, we would like to emphasize that the probability of leptospirosis should be considered in children presenting with jaundice, encephalopathy, multiple organ dysfunction and bleeding diathesis if there are any environmental risk factors.

Abstract: the organ multiple damage is the morphological expression of systemic inflammatory response triggered by many causal factors and the clinically it is expressed with the multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, which could be diagnosed after a detailed necropsy study. although both terms are well clinically and morphologically characterized there are confusions related to the use of both naming and in other features related to this subject, in which are involved pathologists, intensive care professionals, surgeons and other specialists. the aim of present paper was to clarify the controversial features related to organ multiple damage using questions and answers and to reflect in this respect. different features on thus subject were discussed clearing up the basis supporting the organ multiple damage diagnosis being necessary a necropsy with high quality, from a macroscopic study up to a microscopic one, collection of all the morphologic alterations founded and its assessment in each study patient and quantifying the changes noted to estimate the mark system and finally to value its place in the chronopathognomy of the deceased.

Abstract: acute onset of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (mods) is a well-known complication following multiple wasp stings. however, mods after a single wasp sting has been rarely reported in children and acute pancreatitis have probably never been observed before. herein we describe the case of a 12-year-old boy who had urticaria and abdominal pain after a single wasp sting. the child gradually developed mods while his abdominal complaints were worsening. despite aggressive supportive management, the child did not survive. afterward, the cause of the acute abdomen was finally diagnosed as acute pancreatitis. both mods and pancreatitis following a single wasp sting are very unusual. thus, although pancreatitis is rarely manifested, it should be suspected after a wasp sting if there are predominant abdominal symptoms.

Abstract: Sepsis is the systemic response to severe infection in critically ill patients. Sepsis, septic syndrome & septic shock represent the increasingly severe stages of the same disease. Despite the remarkable improvements in outcome, sepsis & septic shock remain an important cause of morbidity & mortality in children. This is a retrospective study among the patients who were admitted in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) of Children's Hospital Medical Center from Farvardin 1371 till Esfand 1375. During this period 4018 children were admitted in the PICU, 138 of these patients (3.4%) had the initial diagnosis of sepsis or septic shock. The age of these patients were from 3 months to 14 years (mean of 23.5 months). The male to female ratio was 2.1:1. Out of these 138 patients only 16 cases (11.6%) had sepsis and the others (88.4%) had criterias of severe sepsis or septic shock. Multiple Organ Dysfunction (MOD) were found in 96 cases (69.3%). Diarrhea was the most common primary disease that resulted in sepsis or septic shock. Only 20.3% of the cultures were positive, among which E-Coli was the most in 8.7%, Staphylococcus aureus in 5.7%, Klebsiella in 2.9% and pseudomonas in 1.4%. 66.7% of these patients expired, the mortality rates of the patients with severe sepsis or septic shock that concommitantely had MOD were higher than the other (P<0.0005). So it may be better if children with clinical diagnosis of sepsis be hospitalized in an intensive care unit or at minimum in a facility that can closely monitor these patients during the initial stabilization period.

A young pregnancy women suffered from fever for 3 days and came to our hospital. After admission to the hematology department because of thrombocytopenia, in the third day coma appears and she was deliveried to ICU department. Our lab finding suggests that the patient presented respiratory failure, shock, liver injury, renal injury, ga-strointestinal dysfunction and coagulation dysfunction. Consider of that, the diagnosis was encephalitis, multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, shock, and stillbirth. Then we give her the treatment including the mechanical ventilation, mon-itoring CVP, fluid resuscitation, large dose glucocorticoid injection, and mild hypothcrmia, sedation, coagulating, organ support and early nutrition support therapy. And on the 5th day, a dead female baby was delivered, after more than 20 days treatment, the patient was clear. Muscle power was 3-4 level in the four limbs, lab finding returns to normal, the patient was discharged.

Abstract: introduction. multiple organ system dysfunction (mosd) syndrome is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric and neonatal intensive care units. we studied the clinical course and the outcome of mosd in neonates admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit. our objective was to analyze the changes observed in the mosd in two different periods (1997-2002). population, material and methods. we prospectively evaluated two groups of 100 consecutive neonates admitted to the neonatal intensive care at the "hospital prof. dr. j. p. garrahan" between july 1st and december 31er 1997 (first period) and december 1st - july 31st 2002 (second period). organ system dysfunction was analyzed regarding its global rate, causes, presenting time, severity, compromise of different organs and intervening factors in its final outcome. we defined multiple organ system dysfunction as the failure of two or more systems or organs during a period longer than 24 hours. the dysfunction criteria for each organ were defined as in a previous study in order to compare both periods. results. we observed an increase in frequency (n= 60) but a lower mortality rate in the second period (15%) (p <0.05). there was a higher frequency of progression to organ dysfunction in congenital cardiac and digestive defects in the second period. a similar pattern of high frequency of progression and presentation of organ dysfunction after the admission was observed in both periods. mortality was related to the number of organ or systems affected. conclusions. there were important changes in multiple organ dysfunction in both periods. the frequency was higher and the mortality was lower in the second period. both periods showed a high frequency of progression or presentation of organ systemic dysfunction after admission. mortality was related to the number of organs and systems affected. a change in the definition of neonatal multiple organ systemic disfunction is proposed due to a probable overdiagnosis
