Autism or developmental features?

Last time, we talked about violations in the intellectual and emotional development of the child and what prerequisites provoke these violations. Perhaps one of the most controversial cognitive disorders is childhood autism.

At an early age, it is quite difficult to determine whether the child is developing correctly: why at the age of one and a half years he still does not say, why he does not respond to his own name and does not play with his peers, why is he so violently capricious and does not want to eat on his own? Should these warning signs be signs of autism?

Can it be argued that autism is accompanied by a developmental delay? Of course. But can we say that autists are mentally disabled children who will remain so for life? Of course no. Delay in development is just one of the symptoms of autism, which is far from the most characteristic and dangerous for the child. Continue reading

The structure of the incidence and modern approaches to the treatment of acute respiratory viral infections in children

Undoubtedly, acute respiratory infections (ARI) invariably occupy a leading place in the structure of infectious pathology, especially among children. In Russia, approximately 70–80 thousand diseases are registered annually per 100 thousand of a population of a given age (3.3 times higher than in adults) with no downward trend, while the frequency of influenza during a seasonal increase in the incidence is not always more frequent, and sometimes less frequently than ARI of another etiology in total.
ARIs are not a mild “cold”, which we constantly hear from the TV screen and read on the Internet — they are acute infections with varying severity of the course, caused mainly by viruses belonging to at least 7 families (Orthomyxoviridae, Paramyxoviridae, Picornaviridae, Coronaviridae, Reoviridae, Parvoviridae, Adenoviridae). It should be noted that the causative agents of the common cold do not exist at all, and this concept has nothing to do with medicine. Continue reading

Acute Mesadenitis: A Pediatrician’s Look

Mesadenitis, or mesenteric lymphadenitis, mesenteritis – inflammation of the lymph nodes of the mesentery – is often the cause of acute pain abdominal syndrome in children. Diagnosis and treatment of mesadenitis are at the intersection of the interests of pediatricians and pediatric surgeons, which constantly maintains the relevance of this problem. The difficulties of verifying the disease associated with the lack of common diagnostic criteria do not allow us to estimate the true frequency of acute non-specific mesadenitis (i.e., caused by non-specific pathogens) in childhood. In surgical hospitals, the disease is recorded in 11.7-18.4% of patients with acute abdominal syndrome. In children hospitalized with suspected acute appendicitis, mesadenitis is detected in 8–9% of cases. The disease is diagnosed mainly in children aged 5 to 13 years, and more often boys get sick.
