Abstract Rhabdomyosarcomas are malignant skeletal muscle tumors. They account for about 50% of soft tissue sarcomas in children. The usual sites include head and neck(35%),extremities, trunk,retroperitoneum. Lesser common sites include the genitourinary.
With so many different symptoms, which require a different attack. The Ebola virus is complex, making it even harder to fight. Ebola has intense symptoms, High fatality rates and no cure. “In humans, certain Ebola viruses can cause fatality in 50 to 90 percent of cases” (“Ebola” 1). Ebola
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or the CDC, Each year an average of 20,000 children under the age of 5 are hospitalized because of influenza complications. 2.Children should be vaccinated in the month of October if possible. a. It takes two weeks for antibodies to build up. b. Flu season usually peaks in January.
Whooping cough is a bacterial in the upper respiratory infection that leads to violent coughing. The word whoop is originated from the inflammation and swelling of the voice box structures that vibrates when there is a rapid inflow of air during inspiration. This disease is highly infectious ( (Medicine Net, 1996-2015). Pertussis is detected in the back of the neck.
Then, the skin is infected and boils and rashes will appear all over. Smallpox is spread through contact between people and saliva when talking, coughing or sneezing. It can also be spread rapidly when the boils on the skin burst, leading to the smallpox DNA going everywhere. The highly infectious disease ravaged and plagued across the globe, decimating a large number of the population. In the 18th century, it had an astonishing mortality rate of 90% in the United States.
Those against mandatory vaccines deem that the chickenpox, measles, rubella and rotavirus all have symptoms that can be treated with oral medicines and creams. Vaccine-preventable diseases have not disappeared so vaccination is still necessary and the diseases that decreased tremendously were due to the impact of vaccines. The CDC notes that many vaccine-preventable diseases are still in the United States or "only a plane ride away." Although the paralytic form of polio has largely disappeared thanks to vaccination, the virus still exists in countries like Pakistan where there were 93 cases in 2013 and 71 in 2014 as of May 15. The polio virus can be incubated by a person without symptoms for years; that person can then accidentally infect an unvaccinated child or adult in whom the virus can mutate into its paralytic form and spread amongst unvaccinated people.
Social cohesion is weakened, and conflict situations are created, generating violence and sick societies. More than nine million children die each year before their fifth birthday. Between 33% and 50% due to malnutrition. The cause of death is usually diarrhea, but behind it is acute deficits of necessary micronutrients. About 2 million children die from pneumonia.
The infected individual will develop vesicles or lesions over the body that are fluid filled and have a high probability of rupturing. Patients will typically present with hundreds of lesions or vesicles. The length of time for vesicle formation is 4-5 days (Soman & Madan, 2013). Chicken pox can be transmitted airborne or through direct contact with the fluid present in the vesicles (Soman & Madan, 2013). Patients with chickenpox are considered infectious48 hours prior to the vesicular rash (Soman & Madan, 2013).
This occurs so the newborn can lose the excess fluid in its body. The five common skin manifestations that occur in newborns are milia, telangiectatic nevi, erythema toxicum, nevus flammeus, and mongolian spots. Milia includes small white spots on the newborns face, nose, and chin. These small bumps look like pimples and normally go away on their own.
According to Ron Dagan, acute otitis media (middle ear infection) are most common in kids 3 months old to 3 years old. (Dagan p. 1). In Clinical Bacteriology of Recurrent Otitis Media with Effusion, it states, “antibiotic resistance has increased due to indiscriminate overuse and misuse of antibiotics.” The overuse of an antibiotic and/or using the wrong antibiotic to treat the sickness has made bacteria more resistant to the antibiotics. Later on in the passage, Dagan adds, “we collected nine hundred middle ear fluid samples for six hundred fifty four pediatric patients who underwent ventilation tube insertion due to OME…”
When groups of liver cells begin to die off the result is acute hepatitis. It is the gallstones that contain large amounts of viral substances, which will eventually cause cell-degenerative changes. As gallstones increase more cells will become infected and will die, sometimes killing off entire lobules and creating kinks in the blood vessels themselves. This will hinder the bloods ability to circulate freely. Liver cancer will occur only after many years of progressive occlusion of the liver bile ducts.
Hirschsprung’s Disease is a congenital condition that affects the colon which is also known as the large intestine. It is a developmental disorder of the enteric nervous system that is characterized by the absence of ganglion cells in the last part of the colon. This disease occurs in 1 out of every 5,000 live births. It affects newborns, babies and toddlers because it can show late symptoms during a child’s toddler ’s years.
Children under the age of two and older adults who have weak immune systems are at the most risk. Pneumococcal meningitis is harmful and can cause severe brain damage or ca even cause someone to go deaf. Meningococcal meningitis is the second most common form of meningitis and it is caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitides. People at risk for this disease include infants under the age of one, people who travel to foreign countries, freshmen in college who live in the dorms and people with suppressed immune systems. Between 10 and 15 percent of the cases are fatal and 10 to 15 percent up end with brain
More than thirty thousand people become victims of Lyme disease each year. Hundreds of people are affected by Colorado tick fever annually. Eleven percent of Powassan virus victims end up dying. What could cause all of these horrible diseases? Surprisingly, it is the tiny tick that spreads these epidemics.
