Numerous causes may, therefore, explain these symptoms. Most evidence suggests that the cause of nocturnal enuresis is multifactorial. Possibilities include the following. A- GENETICS: There is an increased incidence of nocturnal enuresis in children whose parents also had this condition. Both parents, 77%; one parent, 44%; neither parent 15%.-1 2- In monozygotic twins the concordance rate is 68 %; the rate for dizygotic twins is 36 %.
However, regardless of classification, the translocation of pathogens into the peritoneal cavity initiates a cascade of inflammatory responses (Mabewa, Seni, Chalya, Mshana, & Gilyoma, 2015). This response is co-stimulated by mesothelial cells, and characterized by an accumulation of neutrophils and pro-inflammatory cytokines (McGuire et al., 2015). In primary peritonitis the infection occurs, but the source of intra-abdominal infection is unidentified, this is known as spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP). Secondary peritonitis arises from abdominal trauma, organ damage, occurs secondary to medical procedures, and internal leaks affecting the peritoneum. Likewise, tertiary peritonitis is defined as a recurrent or persistent infection after 48 hours of adequate medical management of secondary peritonitis (Henderson, Nguyen, Said, & Nazzal, 2017).

But does not include an infection that has been in the incubation period prior to or after admission. Nosocomial infection in hospital staff is also a hospital infection. Broadly speaking, the target of hospital infection includes inpatients, hospital staff,
However, we did not find any of the following factors to be an indicator of failure of antibiotic therapy: age, history of recurrent sinusitis, allergy, asthma or anatomic pathology. Orbital and/or intracranial sequelae are the most dangerous complications of sinusitis,10-11 with Orbital Abscess representing the most common orbital complication. While the exact incidence of these complications is unknown, they may represent between 1 and 3% of sinus infections, occurring more commonly in children than in adults.12-14 The ethmoid sinuses are most commonly involved in orbital complications of sinusitis.15-16 Ipsilateral pansinusitis on CT scan was the most common diagnostic finding in our series. Weber and Mikulis17 reported that 84% of their children with orbital infections had ethmoid and maxillary sinusitis. However, when such complications occur, the cardinal question is when surgical intervention is indicated.
Heart failure in neonates rather occurs as a result to congenital cardiac malformations or diseases as ventricular septal defect, aortic regurgitation, pulmonary regurgitation after repair of tetralogy of Fallot, aortic coarctation, severe aortic stenosis and patent ductus arteriosus. There is no data showing that there’s a direct relation between liver cell failure in neonates and meconium aspiration. Conclusion: On the basis of the findings of this review, we recommend inspection of the larynx under direct vision, clearing of the airway artificial ventilation and IV immunoglobulins for the management of cases with meconium aspiration syndrome. Antibiotics are not needed unless there are signs of sepsis. We do not recommend acyclovir or naloxone.
Neonatal sepsis can be divided into two subtypes depending upon whether the onset of symptom is during first 72 hours of life or later.The term early onset neonatal sepsis refers to those infections which occur in first 72 hours oflife. It is caused by organisms prevalent in the genital tract or in the labor room.The predisposing factors include low birth weight (LBW),prolonged rupture of membranes; foul smelling liquor,multiple per vaginalexaminations, maternal fever, difficult or prolonged labor and aspiration of
In cases where hypoplastic maxillary sinuses are present, lateral elevation of the uncinate process until it fuses with the medial orbital wall can impede the integrity of the orbit. Congenital or traumatic deviation of the nasal septum can result in compression of the middle meatus and subsequent obstruction of the drainage pathway. Complications of these variations arise when they obstruct the drainage pathway of the respective paranasal sinuses. Pneumatization of respective areas has been associated with reduced ventilation to the sinuses. As a result, stasis of the mucous within the sinus can result in sinopathies such as sinusitis and
It is a method depends on ulceration and bleeding because to the heterotropic gastric mucosa (8) . The symptoms and signs of intestinal obstruction occur late. Obstruction can occur only if the base of the diverticulum is broad enough to cause narrowing of the intestinal lumen. A mass at the hernial site which is tender associated with nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain are the main symptoms. The swelling over the hernia site may be small at first, and may be missed as the cause of
Rotational anomalies are one of the most frequent of embryonic malformations related to the digestive tract. The incidence of malrotation is ∼1:500 births and the symptomatic incidence is 1:6000 [1, 2]. Intestinal malrotation refers to incomplete midgut rotation and fixation in early fetal life and can consist of complete absence of rotation, incomplete rotation—less than 270—or inverse rotation. In most cases Malrotation can present with other congenital anomalies and It is typically diagnosed during the first year. We report a rare case of malrotation with LADD band presenting in an 11 year old girl accompanying intrinsic duodenal stenosis and annual stenosis.
Extra relevant information A strabismus may be primary or secondary. In the case of a primary strabismus, the poor vision is not accounted for by any visible pathological anomaly. However, reduced visual acuity from birth, also known as a congenital strabismus, may be accompanied by achrmatopsia (1). Furthermore, there are reports of total achromatopsia being a symptom of Fundus Flavimaculatus which is an autosomal recessive disorder of the retina. It is bilateral and progressive with subretinal yellow flecks (6).
