    Full Text Available INTRODUCCIÓN. En el Hospital Ginecoobstétrico Docente «Ramón González Coro» no se ha estudiado la prevalencia de la anemia muy precoz de la prematuridad y los factores asociados a su aparición. Se decidió realizar esta investigación para dar respuesta a esta interrogante y proporcionar bases a las autoridades administrativas para el trazado de estrategias preventivas más eficaces, que reduzcan esta complicación y sus consecuencias. MÉTODOS. Se realizó un estudio prospectivo, de corte transversal, donde se incluyeron todos los recién nacidos (RN ≤ de 1 500 g nacidos antes de las 37 semanas y atendidos en el servicio de neonatología del hospital durante el año 2008. El universo de estudio estuvo constituido por 25 neonatos. Se determinó en cada uno la presencia o no de anemia muy precoz. Se determinó la prevalencia de esta enfermedad y los factores maternos, perinatales y posnatales asociados. RESULTADOS. Presentó anemia muy precoz el 52 % de los neonatos (13/25. La hemoglobina materna baja no se asoció a la anemia muy precoz (RP 0,62; IC 95 % 0,21-1,80. Ninguna variable perinatal se asoció a la anemia muy precoz, aunque se encontró que la prevalencia de esta enfermedad disminuye al aumentar la edad gestacional al nacer (tendencia lineal: X² 4,33; gl 1; p 0,037. Los RN con alguna morbilidad grave tuvieron 2,44 veces más probabilidad de presentar anemia muy precoz (RP 2,44; IC 95 % 1,01-5,87. La prevalencia de la anemia muy precoz se incrementó al aumentar los mililitros por kilogramo de peso de sangre extraída (tendencia lineal: X² 7,6195; gl 1; p 0,0058. Los RN con extracciones entre 5 y 10 mL/kg y > 10 mL/kg tuvieron 5,3 y 4,5 veces más probabilidad de presentar anemia (RP 5,33; IC 95 % 1,4739-19,2988 y RP4,5 ; IC 95 % 1,1254-17,9930, respectivamente. CONCLUSIONES. Un poco más de la mitad de los casos presentaron anemia muy precoz y los factores independientes asociados a su aparición fueron la presencia de

    Full Text Available En el Instituto Materno Infantil (lMI, donde se atienden aproximadamente 21.000 partos cada año, hay un índice de prematuros entre e114% y eI17%. Anteriormente los prematuros eran tratados de acuerdo con las normas convencionales. La alta mortalidad, que ocurría en ese entonces, obligó al IMI a cambiar esas normas y se obtuvieron los más positivos resultados, que sobrepasan los índices de las naciones más avanzadas. La alimentación natural se inicia, ofrecida directamente par la madre, en el servicio mismo. Sin consideración del peso del pequeño, y con base únicamente en su estado clínico, el niño va con su madre para que ella lo caliente, estimule y alimente, tanto orgánica como afectivamente, en su casa. Se hacen con troles domiciliarios especiales, y además se dan conferencias educativas como parte básica del programa. En dos años de experiencia se ha demostrado: la absoluta desaparición de enfermedades como la enterocolitis necrosante, y de diarreas, sepsis y entidades bacterianas del aparato respiratorio. Igualmente hay una baja significativa del índice de abandono y de los costos hospitalarios (cama, medicación, leches especiales, papillas, etc.. Se estableció estadísticamente que la supervivencia para niños con peso inferior a 1.000 gr. pas6 de 0% a 72.3%; para niños entre 1.001 gr. y 1.500 gr. subió de 27.3% a 89.04% y para niños entre 1.501 gr. y 2.000 gr. subi6 de 81.5% a 94%.

    Full Text Available Ser madre es el resultado de un proceso que implica desarrollar una fuerte identidad maternal, este inicia en la gestación y abarca incluso los primeros meses de vida del hijo. Este proceso se nutre de la constante interacción madre-hijo. Para conocer las vivencias de las madres de niños prematuros que han requerido hospitalización, al asumir el cuidado de ellos en casa, se realizó un estudio fenomenológico con participación de diez madres. Los hallazgos indican que la separación de la diada durante la hospitalización impone limitaciones, que impiden que la mujer asuma con tranquilidad y alegría el nuevo rol. Es importante empoderar al personal de enfermería de las unidades neonatales para implementar estrategias de contacto temprano y continuo madre-hijo, que apoyen a las mujeres en el proceso de convertirse en madres.

Los datos que se obtuvieron se depositaron en la base de datos para el procesamiento estadístico, y se les aplicó la prueba de chi cuadrado y la prueba de comparación de medias, ambas con un nivel de significación del 5 %. Se usó Surfacén en 24 niños, los que constituyeron el grupo estudio y no se usó en 24, considerados el grupo control. Se observó una mejoría en la oxigenación de la enfermedad de la membrana hialina, pero no existió diferencia estadísticamente significativa en la mortalidad y las complicaciones, quizás porque los niños del estudio eran más inmaduros y de más bajo peso que los controles.48 children with gestational age under 34 weeks and less than 2000g of weight that were born at "Justo Legón Padilla" Provincial Gynecoobstetric Teaching Hospital, in Pinar del Río, between January, 1997, and December, 1999, were studied in order to evaluate the efficiency of the use of "Surfacén", a Cuban exogenous surfactant, in the respiratory distress syndrome of premature infants.

  14. Combinación de agentes tocolíticos para la inhibición del trabajo de parto prematuro

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-11-01

    Conclusiones de los autores: No está claro si una combinación de fármacos tocolíticos para el trabajo de parto prematuro es más ventajosa para las embarazadas y los recién nacidos, debido a la falta de ensayos grandes bien diseñados que incluyan los resultados de interés. No hay ensayos de regímenes de combinación que utilicen los agentes tocolíticos usados con gran frecuencia como los bloqueantes de los canales de calcio (nifedipino y los antagonistas de los receptores de oxitocina (atosiban. Se necesitan ensayos adicionales antes de establecer conclusiones específicas sobre el uso del tratamiento con tocolíticos combinados para el trabajo de parto prematuro.

No se halló relación entre los factores de riesgo maternos y la presencia o gravedad de la hemorragia. En cuanto a los niños, la edad gestacional menor de 31 semanas, el uso de ventilación mecánica y la persistencia del ductus arterioso mostraron una relación estadística con el evento (p < 0.05, mientras que la sumatoria de tres o más riesgos la tuvo con la gravedad del mismo (p < 0.05. Se concluye que los mencionados factores de riesgo pueden ser indicativos del desarrollo de la hemorragia de la matriz germinal en el prematuro. To facilitate clinical diagnosis of germinal matrix hemorrhage In preterm infants, a study of cases {n: 56 and controls {n: 66 was carried out. Association was investigated between hemorrhage and maternal and neonatal risk factors; also included was the correlation between such factors and seriousness of the hemorrhagic episode. No correlation was found between maternal risk factors and hemorrhage or its seriousness. Concerning neonatal risks, gestational age under 31 weeks, the use of mechanical ventilation and persistence of ductus arteriosus, independently, showed statistical correlation with the hemorrhage {p < 0.05, whereas the simultaneous presence of three or more risks correlated with intensity of hemorrhage {p < 0.05. We conclude that the abovementioned neonatal risk factors can be suggestive of the development of germinal matrix hemorrhage in preterm Infants.

Diseño: estudio de tipo cualitativo etnográfico basado en la teoría de Madeleine Leininger. Muestra: la información, obtenida de observación y 23 entrevistas a las madres en su hogar, se recolectó y se analizó según la entrevista y análisis etnográficos de James Spradley. Participantes: ocho madres de recién nacidos prematuros que asistieron a control al Programa Madre Canguro Integral, Hospital Universitario San Ignacio, entre noviembre de 2007 y mayo de 2008. Resultados: surgen dos temas: cuidados directos al recién nacido prematuro y el camino hacia la adaptación. El cuidado directo al recién nacido prematuro en el hogar significa para la madre cangurear, masajear, proteger del frío, alimentar al niño, mantener la higiene, conservar la protección del medio, dar amor, suministrar oxígeno suplementario al bebé si lo requiere y saber sobre las señales del niño. El camino hacia la adaptación materna tiene para las madres un objetivo: "criar el niño". Ellas manifiestan lo difícil que son las noches, expresan sus sentimientos y finalmente describen la adaptación materna como el acostumbrarse. Conclusión: la visión de las madres cuidando el recién nacido prematuro es universal: significa "cuidar mucho al niño" y estar pendientes; por otra parte, la connotación de cuidado es diversa porque cada madre lo cataloga, desde su propia percepción, como cuidado extremo, básico, esencial y especial. También las madres dejaron conocer creencias, valores, tradiciones y mitos.Objetivo: descrever o significado do cuidado do recém nascido prematuro em casa para as mães desde seu contexto cultural.

    Diamond Blackfan anemia (DBA) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with isolated del(5q) are severe macrocytic anemias; although both are associated with impaired ribosome assembly, why the anemia occurs is not known. We cultured marrow cells from DBA (n = 3) and del(5q) MDS (n = 6) patients and determined how heme (a toxic chemical) and globin (a protein) are coordinated. We show that globin translation initiates slowly, whereas heme synthesis proceeds normally. This results in insufficient globin protein, excess heme and excess reactive oxygen species in early erythroid precursors, and CFU-E (colony-forming unit-erythroid)/proerythroblast cell death. The cells that can more rapidly and effectively export heme or can slow heme synthesis preferentially survive and appropriately mature. Consistent with these observations, treatment with 10 μM succinylacetone, a specific inhibitor of heme synthesis, improved the erythroid cell output of DBA and del(5q) MDS marrow cultures by 68 to 95% (P = 0.03 to 0.05), whereas the erythroid cell output of concurrent control marrow cultures decreased by 4 to 13%. Our studies demonstrate that erythropoiesis fails when heme exceeds globin. Our data further suggest that therapies that decrease heme synthesis (or facilitate heme export) could improve the red blood cell production of persons with DBA, del(5q) MDS, and perhaps other macrocytic anemias.

    Full Text Available This qualitative study aims to identify and analyze the meanings the health team attributes to the parents' participation in the care of premature children hospitalized at a public hospital. Data were recorded and collected through semi-structured interviews performed with 23 professionals. The results show that parents' participation in the care of these children is still in an initial stage at the hospital's neonatal unit. However, there is interest from the health team to implement it because its importance is recognized in improving the clinical stability, the growth and development process of premature children. In addition to allowing for mother-child interaction and affective bonding, it prepares the mother for the child's discharge. The presence of the mother helps the nursing team by giving maternal care to the hospitalized child. On the other hand, the parents' presence interferes in the environment of the neonatal unit. It affects the work dynamics and creates insecurity among team workers, who feel supervised. Besides, there is concern regarding hospital infection. Thus, in accordance with other studies from different countries, these meanings entail reflections on the need to base the premature care in terms of collectively building a care philosophy that restores concepts of human rights, citizenship, bonding and mother-child attachment, pediatric psychology and also expands the concept of training for a participative health education.El estudio tiene como objetivo identificar y analizar los significados atribuidos por el equipo de salud con relación a la participación de la madre/padre en el cuidado del niño prematuro hospitalizado en un hospital público.

    Full Text Available El hematocrito (Hto, como indicador de anemia en individuos y poblaciones, experimenta variaciones en función de factores mesológicos y genéticos. La anemia constituye una enfermedad endémica cuya prevalencia en Argentina, en distintos grupos de edad y de riesgo y particularmente en escolares, es insuficientemente conocida. El objetivo de este trabajo fue conocer la variación del Hto en escolares de la ciudad de San Salvador de Jujuy localizada a 1200 m.s.n.m., evaluar la prevalencia de anemia y relacionar estas variaciones con las características socioeconómicas de la población. Los datos del Hto procedieron de 17.580 escolares de escuelas públicas y privadas. Para su análisis se agruparon por edad, sexo y nivel socio-económico. Se consideró como anémicos a los niños cuyo Hto se encontró por debajo de: a el valor mínimo aceptado para el nivel de 1200 m; b -2 desviaciones estándar. Para el análisis se empleó: ANOVA, c2 y coeficiente de correlación. Los valores promedio del Hto, independientemente de la edad, sexo y nivel socioeconómico, coinciden con los de la referencia ajustados para la altura. Se observaron: a diferencias intersexuales estadísticamente significativas, presentando los varones, valores superiores a los de las mujeres; b una tendencia al aumento del Hto con relación al incremento del nivel socioeconómico. La prevalencia de anemia, independientemente del criterio utilizado, fue baja en ambos sexos, grupos de edad y en todos los niveles socioeconómicos. Los valores del hematocrito: a son representativos de una población escolar situada a una altitud moderada; b pese a la tendencia a disminuir en el nivel socioeconómico bajo no superan, en la mayoría de los casos, el nivel crítico de anemia; c no indican presencia de desnutrición en la población escolar examinada.The hematocrit (Ht, as an indicator of anemia in individuals and populations, shows variations in relation to mesologic and genetic factors

Se recoge un aumento de la proporción de inasistentes del 14,6 al 19,5 %, probablemente a causa de gestantes que ya conocían el riesgo con anterioridad. Estos resultados muestran un progresivo aumento en la eficiencia del programa. Se requiere continuar incrementando su eficienciaIn order to evaluate the efficiency of the Cuban Program of Prevention of Sickle Cell Anemia in Havana City, a retrospective study was conducted among pregnant carriers in 2 periods: 1995-97 and 1998. The following parameters were evaluated: gestational age at which the couple concluded their risk study and the causes not to end the study. The main result was that 76,6 % in 1995-97 and 83,6 % in 1998 of the high risk couples detected for the first time finished the study before the 22 weeks of gestational age. Likewise, it was observed a reduction of the number of non-localized expectants from 12,6 % to 4,5 %. There was an increase in the proportion of non-attendants from 14,6 to 19,5 %, probably due to the fact that some pregnant women already knew the risk. These results showed a progressive increase in the efficiency of the program. It is necessary to continue improving its efficiency

    Full Text Available Con el objetivo de determinar el impacto de la administración con multimicronutrientes (MMN en polvo sobre la anemia infantil en tres regiones andinas del Perú, se estableció un sistema de vigilancia centinela en 29 establecimientos de Andahuaylas, Ayacucho y Huancavelica, en niños de 6 a 35 meses de edad, a quienes se les indicó MMN por un periodo de 12 meses, entre el 2009 y 2011. Además de los datos sociodemográficos de los menores y las madres, se determinó los niveles de hemoglobina al inicio y al final del estudio. Entre los menores que culminaron la suplementación, la prevalencia de anemia se redujo de 70,2 a 36,6% (p<0,01, y se evidenció que el 55,0% y el 69,1% de niños con anemia leve y moderada al inicio del estudio, la habían superado al término del mismo. Se concluye que la suplementación con MMN en polvo puede ser una estrategia efectiva en la lucha contra la anemia.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN Se hace un análisis desde el punto de vista de los principios de la bioética, sobre la investigación en la fase III de ensayo clínico de la aplicación del Surfacén para el síndrome de dificultad respiratoria del recién nacido, la cual se llevó a efecto en Cuba. El colectivo de investigadores tuvo que enfrentar una serie de disyuntivas bioéticas que pusieron de manifiesto la integridad de ese colectivo. Se demuestra que los principios de la bioética: beneficiencia, no mal eficiencia, autonomía y justicia, se tuvieron en cuenta en el protocolo de la investigación y durante la ejecución de ésta. Según este análisis, se justifica que se tomara un grupo control histórico, en lugar de un grupo control placebo, para las comparaciones de la utilización del Surfacén y que se optara por el consentimiento parental después de una información verbal por el médico, sin necesidad de utilizar un documento de consentimiento escrito.An analysis was made from the point of view of bioethic principles, on the investigation of a phase III clinical trial regarding the application of Surfacen for the treatment of the respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn in Cuba. The team of investigators had to face a series of bioethic alternatives which evidenced the integrity of the team of workers. It was demonstrated that bioethic principles such as beneficience, efficiency, autonomy, and justice were taken into account to conduct the protocol of the investigation and during the performance of it. According to such analysis, it was justified that a history control group will be taken instead of a placebo control group for the comparison of the utilization of Surfacen. Also the parents' consent will be obtained after a verbal information by the doctor without the need of using a document of informed written consent.

    Full Text Available La hemorragia intraventricular (HIV es la principal complicación neurológica de los recién nacidos prematuros, cuyas frecuencia y gravedad aumentan con el menor peso al nacer y la menor edad gestacional. Se han encontrado otros factores asociados con el aumento o disminución de su frecuencia. Objetivo: determinar la incidencia de HIV en prematuros atendidos en el Hospital Universitario San Vicente de Paúl (HUSVP, de Medellín, Colombia, entre 1999 y 2004 y establecer su asociación con condiciones de la madre y del recién nacido. Metodología: estudio retrospectivo de los prematuros menores de 32 semanas y por debajo de 1.500 gramos, atendidos en el HUSVP entre 1999 y 2004. Se calculó una muestra de 330 historias clínicas, seleccionadas en forma aleatoria, con un nivel de confianza de 95%, error del 3% y poder del 80%,con base en una incidencia del 15% de HIV en la población general. Resultados: la incidencia encontrada de HIV fue 29,8%. Como factores protectores se encontraron los siguientes: parto por cesárea, parto en un centro de tercer nivel y maduración pulmonar. Como factores que aumentaron el riesgo de HIV se encontraron: parto vaginal, edad gestacional menor de 28 semanas, uso de surfactante, ventilación mecánica, cateterismo umbilical, acidosis e hipercapnia. Conclusiones: se debe insistir en la importancia de que haya programas adecuados de control prenatal para tratar de disminuir la frecuencia de parto prematuro, procurar la remisión oportuna de las gestantes de alto riesgo a centros de referencia, estimular el uso antenatal de esteroides y el control cuidadoso de los parámetros ventilatorios en los pacientes que requieran este soporte, buscando mantener un adecuado equilibrio ácido-base en los recién nacidos.

    Full Text Available La prevención del parto prematuro es uno de los desafíos de la obstetricia en el siglo XXI. Los prematuros tienen riesgo de morbimortalidad perinatal, sobre todos los nacidos antes de las 30 semanas, tienen mayor riesgo de lesiones neurológicas generalmente secundarias a isquemia o infección intrauterina ascendente. Existen estrategias para prevenir el daño neurológico fetal en el trabajo de parto prematuro. La administración de sulfato de magnesio endovenoso reduce en forma significativa la probabilidad de desarrollar parálisis cerebral y disfunciones motoras. También se ha mostrado la utilidad del pinzamiento tardío del cordón umbilical y la administración antenatal y postnatal de N-acetilcisteína. En estudios animales se ha observado un potencial efecto neuroprotector de stem cells mesenquimáticas, estradiol y progesterona, melatonina y creatina.

Esta revisión aborda definiciones, patogénesis y alternativas terapéuticas. Aún están en estudio y/o no son bien conocidos, los mecanismos neuronales que provocan apnea en el prematuro. En la reciente década, se ha conocido mejor la generación del ritmo respiratorio y su modulación en el neonato. Estos episodios de pérdida de respiración efectiva pueden conducir a cuadros de hipoxemia y bradicardia, que pueden ser lo suficientemente severos como para necesitar resucitación y el uso de ventilación asistida. La cafeína sigue siendo el principal tratamiento farmacológico. La Apnea del prematuro se resuelve típicamente con la maduración.

Al año siguiente la industria salmonera nacional comenzó a experimentar una severa crisis sanitaria producida por el virus causante de la anemia infecciosa del salmón. Este virus se presentó por primera vez en Noruega (1984, luego en Canadá, Escocia, Islas Faroe, Estados Unidos y Chile (2007. La anemia infecciosa del salmón (ISA, es una enfermedad altamente contagiosa entre los peces, producida por un virus de la familia Orthomyxoviridae. La especie más vulnerable a este virus es el salmón del Atlántico (Salmo salar. La plaga parasitaria producida por el piojo de mar, Caligus rogercresseyi, copépodo ectoparásito, ha ido en aumento lo que favorece el contagio de enfermedades bacterianas y virales. De todas las especies cultivadas en Chile, el salmón del Atlántico, S. salar es una de las especies más susceptibles de ser infestadas por C. rogercresseyi. Durante el 2006, la industria presentó un aumento significativo en las tasas de infestación por Caligus; luego en el 2007, aparecieron brotes del virus ISA. En Noruega, se ha demostrado que el piojo de mar, Lepeophtherius salmonis puede tener un rol como vector en la transmisión del virus ISA, por lo que el objetivo de este trabajo fue determinar si C. rogercresseyi es un vector de transmisión del virus ISA en el salmón del Atlántico, cultivado en el sur de Chile.

A cross-sectional survey was conducted in a representative sample of 481 women aged 12-49 years, residents of Guachochi Municipality, Chihuahua, from June to September 1998. The hemoglobin (Hb level was measured in capillary blood using the Hemocue technique, and the serum ferritin level in capillary serum spotted on filter paper, in a sub-sample of women. Central tendency and dispersion measures were estimated; the Chisquared test was used to test differences in proportions and ANOVA and Bonferroni's test for differences in means. Results. Prevalence of anemia (mean Hb±S.D. was 16.1% (140±16 g/l and 25.7% (129±12 g/l for non-pregnant and pregnant women, respectively. Pregnant women in the 3rd trimester and those who were breast-feeding their children during the first 6 months after delivery had the highest prevalence of anemia (38.5% and 42.9%, respectively. Iron deficiency was responsible for most of the anemia found in this sample. Conclusions. This study provides relevant information for the development of intervention programs to treat and prevent IDA in this ethnic group.

    Full Text Available Fanconi anemia (FA is an autosomal recessive genetic disease characterized by progressive bone marrow failure, susceptibility to cancer and multiple congenital anomalies. There is important clinical variability among patients and the knowledge of factors which might predict outcome would greatly help the decision making regarding the choices of treatment and the appropriate time to start it. Future studies of the possible correlation between specific mutations with specific clinical presentations will provide the answer to one of these factors. At our Center we standardized a rapid and precise screening test using a mismatch PCR assay for a specific mutation (3788-3790del in exon 38 of gene FANCA in Brazilian FA patients. We present the results obtained after screening 80 non-consanguineous FA patients referred from all regions of Brazil with a clinical diagnosis of FA supported by cellular hypersensitivity to diepoxybutane. We were able to detect the 3788-3790del allele in 24 of the 80 (30% FA patients studied. Thirteen of the 80 (16.25% were homozygotes and 11 of the 80 (13.75% were compound heterozygotes, thus confirming the high frequency of the FANCA 3788-3790del mutation in Brazilian FA patients. The identification of patients with specific mutations in the FA genes may lead to a better clinical description of this condition, also providing data for genotype-phenotype correlations, to a better understanding of the interaction of this specific mutation with other mutations in compound heterozygote patients, and ultimately to the right choices of treatment for each patient with improvement of the prognosis on future studies.

    Full Text Available Introducción: El nacimiento prematuro tiene un impacto social y emocional para la familia, por lo tanto, enfermería tiene el reto de indagar y profundizar sobre las diversas experiencias; para proponer intervenciones que favorezcan el desempeño del rol materno. Objetivo: Describir los resultados de un metaestudio sobre la adquisición del rol materno de la madre con un recién nacido prematuro hospitalizado. Materiales y Métodos: El metaestudio, involucra 3 fases analíticas: análisis metadatos, meta-método, meta-teoría, consideradas a la luz del contexto histórico, sociocultural y disciplinar. La búsqueda se realizó en: CINAHL, Medline, PsycINFO, Dissertation Abstracts. Resultados: Se incluyeron 26 investigaciones de 13 países publicadas en inglés, portugués y español (durante los años 2001-2013. Las expresiones categóricas que emergen de estas investigaciones, son: pérdida de autocontrol; experimentando dolor; buscando significado a los eventos; adaptándose a la situación; adquiriendo el rol materno y descubriendo el amor incondicional. Discusión: El metaestudio permitió el análisis crítico de la información, orientando la investigación dentro de un contexto de patrones sistemáticos, con la construcción de una alternativa de cambio del enfoque tradicional de pérdida y sufrimiento al del redescubrimiento desde la visión positiva y transformativa. Conclusiones: Reconocer la carga emocional de las madres de recién nacido prematuro obliga al equipo de salud a intervenir e idear estrategias de apoyo, para hacer menos doloroso el proceso de hospitalización de sus hijos.  Por ello el cuidado humanizado en la unidad neonatal, debe centrar sus acciones en un cuidado individual, singular, en la integralidad y respeto por la vida.Palabras clave: Maternidad, Recién Nacido Prematuro, Enfermería Neonatal. (Fuente: DeCs BIREME.Cómo citar este artículo: Villamizar B, Vargas C, Rueda E.

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se presentan las características operacionales de la encuesta de Metcoff después de empleada en la evaluación del estado nutricional, antes de las 37 semanas de gestación, de 70 recién nacidos entre junio de 2003 y enero de 2005, en el Hospital Ginecoobstétrico «Ramón González Coro». A cada niño, al momento del nacimiento, se le tomaron mediciones antropométricas seleccionadas. Estas mediciones sirvieron para establecer la condición nutricional del neonato, según las curvas de crecimiento intrauterino adoptadas en la institución. La encuesta de Metcoff se aplicó antes de la obtención de las mediciones antropométricas. La serie de estudio se dividió en dos grupos iguales de hembras y varones. El 97,2 % de los neonatos tenía entre 29 y 36 semanas de gestación en el momento del nacimiento. El 40,0 % de los pacientes examinados presentaba afectación simultánea de la longitud supina y del peso. Solo la circunferencia cefálica se incrementó a medida que avanzó la edad gestacional. Según el puntaje de Metcoff, el 81,4 % de los neonatos tenían estigmas de desnutrición extrauterina. La sensibilidad de la encuesta de Metcoff fue igual o mayor del 90,0 % cuando se comparó con otros indicadores del estado nutricional del recién nacido, aunque a costa de una especificidad menor del 50,0 %. La baja especificidad de la encuesta de Metcoff sugiere que es posible reconocer signos de depleción tisular en niños pretérminos que muestran tasas de crecimiento intrauterino preservadas.The functional features of Metcoff´s survey are presented after being used in the assessment of the nutritional status of 70 babies that were born before the 37th week of gestation, in “Ramón González Coro” Gyneco-obstetric Hospital, from June 2003 to January 2005. At the time of birth, each child was taken selected anthropometric measurements, which served to establish the neonatal nutritional status, in accordance with the curves

    Full Text Available La hemorragia intraventricular (HIV es la principal complicación neurológica en los prematuros; consiste en sangrado de la matriz germinal y las regiones periventriculares del cerebro. Su frecuencia y gravedad aumentan en la medida en que es menor el peso al nacimiento; se la halla entre 10 y 20% de los neonatos de 1.000-1.500 gramos y hasta en 70% en los menores de 700 gramos; se presenta en 85% de las veces en las primeras 72 horas posparto y en 95% ya es evidente al finalizar la primera semana; son múltiples los factores maternos y fetales que se han encontrado asociados con el aumento o disminución de su frecuencia, además del uso de algunos medicamentos. Se han propuesto diversos mecanismos fisiopatogénicos asociados a la inmadurez neurológica para explicar la aparición de la HIV. Las manifestaciones clínicas son variables en cuanto a presentación y evolución. La confirmación diagnóstica, la clasificación y el pronóstico se basan en la ecografía transfontanelar. La principal medida preventiva es la disminución de la frecuencia del parto prematuro; los resultados de otras medidas como el uso prenatal y posnatal de algunos medicamentos para evitarla y tratarla han sido variables. El pronóstico depende de la extensión de la hemorragia, del desarrollo de leucomalacia periventricular y del grado de dilatación ventricular. Neonatal intraventricular hemorrage (IVH is the main neurological complication in preterm infants involving bleeding into the germinal matrix and the periventricular brain areas. Its incidence and severity are greater with lower birthweigth: from 10-20% in 1.000-1.500 g babies to 70% in those less than 700 g. Most often (85% it appears during the first 72 hours after birth and almost 95% of the cases are evident by the end of the first week of life.

    Full Text Available Algunos aspectos del Programa Cubano de Prevención de Anemia Falciforme fueron analizados en Ciudad de La Habana durante 1992. Todas las gestantes detectadas con hemoglobinas anormales fueron citadas por telegrama para explicarles el significado del hallazgo. El 62,2 % acudió con prontitud a la citación. El 21,6 % vino más tardíamente y se requirieron otros mecanismos de comunicación. El 16,2 % no acudió. Todas las gestantes que asistieron, aceptaron recibir asesoramiento genético y se hizo el seguimiento de los casos. El 47,6 % concluyó el estudio del cónyuge en tiempo útil para optar por diagnóstico prenatal. Los resultados muestran la necesidad de reducir la edad gestacional en que se determina el riesgo de la pareja. Ello sería posible mediante el pesquisaje en la primera consulta prenatal, métodos más eficientes en comunicar con las gestantes positivas, y más agilidad en la realización de los análisis y en informar los resultados.Some aspects of the Cuban Programme for Prevention of Sickle Cell Anemia were analyze in Havana City during 1992. All pregnants detected with abnormal hemoglobins received an appointment by telegram to get an explanation about the significance of findings; 62,2 % attended promptly to the appointment; 21,6 % came later, making necessary the use of other mechanisms of communication with pregnants; and 16,2 % never attended. All pregnants who went to the appointment accepted genetic counseling and were followed up. Only 47,6 % concluded testing of partner early enough for consideration of prenatal diagnosis. The results showed the need to reduce gestational age in order to determine the risk of the couple. This is possible by screaning pregnants at the first prenatal visit, by using more efficient methods for contacting with positive women, and by doing the test and informing the results faster.

Esses estudos aplicaram técnicas lineares e não lineares (Teoria do Caos de avaliação em diferentes situações, doenças e faixas etárias, tendo como ferramenta a variabilidade da frequência cardíaca (VFC. OBJETIVO: Aplicar os conhecimentos das dinâmicas linear e não linear na avaliação de neonatos prematuros (NPT, analisando sua VFC e comparando com neonatos de termo (NT saudáveis. MÉTODOS: Quarenta e oito neonatos prematuros com diferentes idades gestacionais tiveram seus batimentos cardíacos captados com auxílio do equipamento Polar Advanced S810i e sua VFC obtida pelo registro dos intervalos RR. A VFC foi analisada nos domínios do tempo (SDNN, RMSSD, SD1/SD2, da frequência (VLF, LF, HF e a relação LF/HF e do caos (TAU e sua normalização [TAU(n], Expoente de Lyapunov e Entropia. Os NPT foram comparados com um grupo de 78 NT saudáveis e sem intercorrências perinatais com auxílio do teste não paramétrico de Kruskal-Wallis. RESULTADOS: Detectou-se diferença estatisticamente significante entre os grupos para todas as variáveis estudadas, tanto no domínio do tempo como nos da frequência e do caos. CONCLUSÃO: Neonatos prematuros exibem comportamento menos complexo da variabilidade da frequência cardíaca que neonatos de termo, fato comprovado nos domínios do tempo, da frequência e do caos. O estudo da variabilidade cardíaca nesse grupo pode ser considerado uma ferramenta a mais na avaliação da maturação autonômica e, consequentemente, da progressão para eutrofia.FUNDAMENTO: Varias publicaciones han demostrado la importancia del sistema nervioso autónomo por medio de los componentes simpático y parasimpático en el manejo de la interacción entre las diferentes partes del organismo

    Full Text Available A anemia aplástica é distúrbio caracterizado por pancitopenia e medula óssea hipocelular, com substituição gordurosa dos elementos e sem nenhum sinal de transformação maligna ou doença mieloproliferativa. Acomete geralmente adultos jovens e idosos, sem preferência sexual. A maioria dos casos é adquirida, mas pode ocorrer hereditariamente, por distúrbio molecular (anemia de Fanconi. A associação com gravidez é rara, estando relacionada com alta morbidade e mortalidade materna e fetal. Os autores descrevem o caso de uma paciente com anemia aplástica, diagnosticada previamente, cuja gestação complicou com infecção do trato urinário, doença hipertensiva específica da gestação e restrição de crescimento fetal, com parto prematuro eletivo. Apesar das condições adversas na gravidez e parto, mãe e recém-nascido tiveram evolução clínica satisfatória.Aplastic anemia is characterized by a circulating pancytopenia, hypocellularity, and fatty replacement of cellular marrow elements, without evidence of malignant transformation or myeloproliferative disease. It usually affects young and senior adults, without any sexual preference. Most cases of aplastic anemia are acquired, but the disease may also be inherited due to a molecular disorder (Fanconi's anemia. Aplastic anemia in pregnancy is an extremely rare condition with high maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality rates. The authors describe a case of a patient with previously diagnosed aplastic anemia, whose pregnancy was complicated with urinary tract infection, preeclampsia and fetal growth restriction, with elective preterm birth. In spite of the adverse conditions in pregnancy and delivery, mother and newborn had a satisfactory clinical evolution.

    Full Text Available O objetivo principal para o uso de uterolíticos no trabalho de parto prematuro é prolongar suficientemente a gestação para a administração materna de glicocorticoides e/ou realizar a transferência materna para um centro hospitalar terciário. As decisões sobre o uso e a escolha de uterolítico requerem o diagnóstico correto do trabalho de parto prematuro, o conhecimento da idade gestacional, das condições médicas materno-fetais, da eficácia, dos efeitos colaterais e do custo do medicamento. Todos os uterolíticos possuem efeitos colaterais e alguns deles são potencialmente letais. Os estudos sugerem que os agonistas de receptores beta-adrenérgicos, os bloqueadores de cálcio e os antagonistas de receptor de ocitocina são eficazes para prolongar a gestação por pelo menos 48 horas. Dos três agentes, o atosiban (antagonista de receptor de ocitocina possui maior segurança, embora o custo seja elevado. O sulfato de magnésio não é eficaz para prolongar a gestação e apresenta efeitos colaterais importantes. Os inibidores da ciclooxigenase também apresentam efeitos colaterais significativos. Até o momento, não há evidências suficientes para se recomendar o uso de doadores de óxido nítrico para inibir o trabalho de parto prematuro. Não existem fundamentos para o emprego de antibióticos para evitar a prematuridade diante do trabalho de parto prematuro.The main purpose of using uterulytic in preterm delivery is to prolong gestation in order to allow the administration of glucocorticoid to the mother and/or to accomplish the mother's transference to a tertiary hospital center. Decisions on uterolytic use and choice require correct diagnosis of preterm delivery, as well as the knowledge of gestational age, maternal-fetal medical condition, and medicine's efficacy, side-effects and cost. All the uterolytics have side-effects, and some of them are potentially lethal. Studies suggest that beta-adrenergic receptor agonists

    Full Text Available A necessidade de intubação e do uso de ventilação mecânica na prematuridade está relacionada à chamada lesão pulmonar induzida pela ventilação e à consequente displasia broncopulmonar. Busca-se a melhor compreensão dos mecanismos de lesão envolvendo resposta inflamatória mediada pelas citocinas para o desenvolvimento de novas estratégias protetoras. Pesquisou-se na base de dados PubMed, incluindo artigos relevantes, os unitermos "ventilator induced lung injury preterm", "continuous positive airway pressure", "preterm" e "bronchopulmonary dysplasia". Dados e informações significativas foram compilados em tópicos, com o objetivo de formar uma visão crítica e plena acerca da lesão induzida pela ventilação e de suas consequências ao prematuro. Foi revisado o papel das citocinas pró-inflamatórias como mediadores da lesão, especialmente interleucinas 6 e 8, e fator de necrose tumoral alfa. Foram apresentadas evidências em estudos com animais e também em humanos, mostrando que breves períodos de ventilação mecânica são suficientes para a liberação dessas interleucinas inflamatórias. Também foram revisadas outras formas de ventilação mecânica e de ventilação não invasiva, como alternativas protetoras aos modos convencionais. Concluiu-se que o uso de ventilação não invasiva, a intubação com administração precoce de surfactante e a extubação rápida para CPAP nasal, além de estratégias que regulam o volume corrente evitando o volutrauma (como a ventilação com volume garantido, são medidas protetoras da lesão pulmonar induzida pela ventilação mecânica no prematuro.

  7. Fanconi anemia.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Soulier, Jean

    2011-01-01

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is the most frequent inherited cause of BM failure (BMF). Fifteen FANC genes have been identified to date, the most prevalent being FANCA, FANCC, FANCG, and FANCD2. In addition to classical presentations with progressive BMF during childhood and a positive chromosome breakage test in the blood, atypical clinical and/or biological situations can be seen in which a FA diagnosis has to be confirmed or eliminated. For this, a range of biological tools have been developed, including analysis of skin fibroblasts. FA patients experience a strong selective pressure in the BM that predisposes to clonal evolution and to the emergence in their teens or young adulthood of myelodysplasia syndrome (MDS) and/or acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with a specific pattern of somatic chromosomal lesions. The cellular mechanisms underlying (1) the hematopoietic defect which leads to progressive BMF and (2) somatic clonal evolutions in this background, are still largely elusive. Elucidation of these mechanisms at the molecular and cellular levels should be useful to understand the physiopathology of the disease and to adapt the follow-up and treatment of FA patients. This may also ultimately benefit older, non-FA patients with aplastic anemia, MDS/AML for whom FA represents a model genetic condition.

  12. Inborn anemias in mice

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Bernstein, S.E.; Barker, J.E.; Russell, E.S.

    1981-06-01

    hereditary anemias of mice have been the chief objects of investigation. At present under study are four macrocytic anemias, five hemolytic anemias, nonhemolytic microcytic anemia, transitory siderocytic anemia, sex-linked iron-transport anemia, an α-thalassemia, and a new target-cell anemia. Each of these blood dyscrasias is caused by the action of a unique mutant gene, which determines the structure of different intracellular molecules, and thus controls a different metabolic process. Thus our wide range of different hereditary anemias has considerable potential for uncovering many different aspects of hemopoietic homeostatic mechanisms in the mouse. Each anemia is studied through: (a) characterization of peripheral blood values, (b) determinations of radiosensitivity under a variety of conditions, (c) measurements of iron metabolism and heme synthesis, (d) histological and biochemical study of blood-forming tissue, (e) functional tests of the stem cell component, (f) examination of responses to erythroid stimuli, and (g) transplantation of tissue between individuals of differently affected genotypes

    Full Text Available Este estudio es una revisión sistemática de la literatura acerca de intervenciones facilitadoras del vínculo padre-hijo celebrada con padres y bebés prematuros hospitalizados en Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales, publicados en los últimos diez años. Fueron utilizados como términos de búsqueda “intervenciones and bebés prematuros and unidad de cuidados intensivos” y sus traducciones al inglés, incluyendo artículos empíricos, disponibles en su totalidad y publicados en inglés, portugués o español, que surge de la medicina, psicología, enfermería, psiquiatría o multidisciplinaria. Se analizaron los resultados por medio de diez categorías: tipos de publicación, año de publicación, continente y país de origen, investigadores académicos, idioma predominante en las publicaciones, objetivos del estudio, diseño, participantes, herramientas e intervenciones usadas, resultados. Se encontraron once artículos publicados principalmente en revistas médicas, compuestos por autores multidisciplinares, de diseño cuantitativo, y la díada madre-hijo como participante. No hubo artículos de solamente psicólogos, que compusieron dos estudios multidisciplinares, que muestra la necesidad de una comprensión de este fenómeno, ya que las repercusiones de los primeros eslabones de la evolución general de los individuos están profundamente cubiertos en psicología

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available La prematuridad es una problemática que se encuentra en aumento a nivel mundial. En Argentina 8 de cada 100 bebés nacen antes de tiempo, de ahí la importancia de sensibilizar a la población sobre este tema. Para la logoterapia la motivación básica y propia del ser humano es su orientación fundamental hacia el sentido, es de- cir, el encontrar y descubrir un porqué y para qué. Tener en cuenta la dimensión existencial de la persona es una forma de acercarnos al problema. Por tal motivo el objetivo del trabajo que se in forma fue relacionar el sentido de vida develado por las madres de niños que se encuentran internados en Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neona- tales (UCIN debido a su nacimiento prematuro con dos factores; por un lado con la capacidad que ellas mismas refieren para informarse adecuadamente acerca de la situación de su hijo y por el otro, con su vinculación con situaciones límite vividas durante el embarazo. Se realizó un estudio experimental con 30 madres de niños prematuros que han pasado por una internación en UCIN en tres instituciones hospitalarias. Se construyó un instrumento con formato de entrevista semidirigida llamado Vivencia de Madres de Niños Nacidos Prematuramente. Los resultados demuestran que las madres con mayor capacidad para solicitar información sobre la situación de sus hijos son las que pudieron dar respuestas acerca de la pregunta sobre el sentido que esta situación les permitía descubrir. En un porcentaje menor pudieron relacionarse las respuestas con situaciones límites vividas con anterioridad.

    posibilidades de socializar el conocimiento con la familia; el Programa como espacio para la relajación y la escucha; y desarrollando el vínculo afectivo con otras madres y con la enfermera. CONCLUSIÓN: Frente a los resultados positivos de este estudio, se recomienda que los programas educativos de esa naturaleza y ampliados con la participación de otros miembros de la familia del prematuro sean implantados en otras unidades neonatales.OBJECTIVE: To identify the perceptions of mothers of premature babies regarding their experience with a health educational program using participant observation methodology. METHODS: Thirty-eight mothers of inpatient premature babies of a neonatal unit participated in the health educational program. The goal of the educational program was to provide mothers with the knowledge and skills to care for their premature babies. Paulo Freire's theory of education served as the framework for the study. An educational booklet and group activities were used to stimulate mothers' perceptions regarding the educational program. A thematic analysis was used to identify the perceptions of mothers regarding the educational program through participants' talk. RESULTS: Four themes emerged: The development of mothers' knowledge by participating in the educational program; the potential for mothers to share the acquired knowledge with family members; the education program as a medium and place for relaxing and listening; and the development of an affective bond with other mothers and the nurse. CONCLUSION: Given the positive results of this study, it is recommended that such educational programs in neonatal units expand to include the participation of other family members or premature babies as well.

    Francisco Leydson Formiga Feitosa

    Full Text Available RESUMO: O objetivo do estudo foi avaliar as variáveis hemogasométricas de cordeiros nascidos a termo e prematuros do nascimento às 48 horas de vida. Foram constituídos quatros grupos experimentais: PN (cordeiros nascidos de parto normal, n=15, média de 146 dias de gestação; PNDEX (cordeiros nascidos de parto normal, cujas mães receberam 16 mg de dexametasona aos 141 de gestação, n=8, média de 143 dias de gestação; PRE (cordeiros prematuros nascidos de cesarianas aos 138 dias de gestação, n=10 e PREDEX (cordeiros prematuros nascidos de cesarianas aos 138 dias de gestação, cujas mães receberam 16 mg de dexametasona dois dias antes do parto, n=9. Imediatamente após o nascimento, os cordeiros de todos os grupos apresentaram quadro de acidose respiratória (pH baixo e pCO2 elevada, com maior ênfase nos animais prematuros. A concentração de HCO3 - diminuiu entre 15 e 60 minutos de vida, principalmente nos grupos PRE e PREDEX, com posterior aumento no M24h. Os valores de diferença de base foram menores nos cordeiros prematuros, os quais apresentaram respiração abdominal, intensa dispneia e grande quantidade de líquido pulmonar. A estabilização do equilíbrio ácidobase ocorreu em todos os animais ao longo das primeiras 24 horas de vida. A dexametasona teve influência positiva sobre a condição clínica dos animais prematuros, resultando em adequada ventilação e perfusão tecidual, o que garantiu maior taxa de sobrevivência.

    Full Text Available The aim of the present study was to assess the very early neurobehavioral development of preterm infants and to examine differences regarding sex. Two-hundred and two preterm infants were assessed by the Neurobehavioral Assessment of the Preterm Infant (NAPI, which was carried out at 32-37 weeks post-conceptional age in the hospital setting. The infants' performance was compared to a norm-referenced sample and a comparison between groups regarding sex was also done. In comparison to the NAPI norm-reference, the preterm infants showed less muscular tonicity on the scarf sign, less vigor and spontaneous movement, higher alertness and orientation, weaker cry, and more sleep state. There was no statistical difference between males and females preterm infants at NAPI performances.O objetivo do estudo foi avaliar o desenvolvimento neurocomportamental inicial de bebês prematuros e examinar as diferenças quanto ao sexo. Foram avaliados 202 bebês nascidos pré-termo pela Avaliação Neurocomportamental para Prematuros (NAPI, que foi realizada na fase de 32-37 semanas de idade pós-concepcional no contexto hospitalar. O desempenho dos bebês no NAPI foi comparado com a amostra de padronização do instrumento e também foi feita a comparação entre grupos diferenciados pelo sexo. Em relação à amostra de padronização, os bebês deste estudo apresentaram menor tonicidade muscular no sinal de cachecol, menor vigor e movimento espontâneo, mais alerta e orientação, choro mais fraco e mais estado de sono. Houve um padrão semelhante de desempenho neurocomportamental dos meninos e meninas nascidos prematuros.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Parmar, Kalindi; D'Andrea, Alan; Niedernhofer, Laura J.

    2009-01-01

    Fanconi anemia is a rare inherited disease characterized by congenital anomalies, growth retardation, aplastic anemia and an increased risk of acute myeloid leukemia and squamous cell carcinomas. The disease is caused by mutation in genes encoding proteins required for the Fanconi anemia pathway, a response mechanism to replicative stress, including that caused by genotoxins that cause DNA interstrand crosslinks. Defects in the Fanconi anemia pathway lead to genomic instability and apoptosis of proliferating cells. To date, 13 complementation groups of Fanconi anemia were identified. Five of these genes have been deleted or mutated in the mouse, as well as a sixth key regulatory gene, to create mouse models of Fanconi anemia. This review summarizes the phenotype of each of the Fanconi anemia mouse models and highlights how genetic and interventional studies using the strains have yielded novel insight into therapeutic strategies for Fanconi anemia and into how the Fanconi anemia pathway protects against genomic instability.

Defects in the Fanconi anemia pathway lead to genomic instability and apoptosis of proliferating cells. To date, 13 complementation groups of Fanconi anemia were identified. Five of these genes have been deleted or mutated in the mouse, as well as a sixth key regulatory gene, to create mouse models of Fanconi anemia. This review summarizes the phenotype of each of the Fanconi anemia mouse models and highlights how genetic and interventional studies using the strains have yielded novel insight into therapeutic strategies for Fanconi anemia and into how the Fanconi anemia pathway protects against genomic instability.

    Anemia is the most common hematological abnormality in cancer patients is often under-recognized and undertreated. The pathogenesis of cancer anemia is complex and most of time multifactorial; involving factors related to the tumor itself or its therapy. While anemia can be present in a wide range of symptoms, involing almost every organ, it is beleived that it contributes much to cancer-related-fatigue, one of the most common symptoms in cancer patients. In addition there is increasing evidence to suggest that anemia is an independent factor adversely affecting tumor reponse and patient survival. While blood transfusion was the only option to treat cancer related anemia, the use of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) is becomig the new standard of care, more so with the recent studies demonstrating the feasibility of a sigle weekly injection .Things are even getting better with the recent approval of a new form of rHuEPO; Darbepoetin an analogue with a 3-fold longer half-life. In addition to its effects in raising homoglobin, several well controlled studies demonstrated decrease in transfusion requirementsand better qualify of life assessed objectively using standard assesments scales.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To identify the meanings attributed by mothers to hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDPs and their consequences, such as premature birth and hospitalization of the infant in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU. METHOD: A qualitative study, based on the Central Nucleus Theory, with 70 women who had hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and preterm delivery. We used the technique of free word association (FWAT with three stimuli: high blood pressure during pregnancy, prematurity and NICU. RESULTS: We obtained 1007 evocations, distributed as follows: high blood pressure during pregnancy (335 prematurity (333 and NICU (339. These constituted three thematic units: representation of HDPs, prematurity and the NICU. The categories death and negative aspects were inherent to the three units analyzed, followed by coping strategies and needs for care present in HDPs and prematurity. CONCLUSION: The study had death as its central nucleus, and highlighted the subjective aspects present in the high risk pregnancy and postpartum cycle. It is hoped that this research will contribute to qualifying nursing care for women confronting the problem of HDPs, so that they can cope with less impacts from the adverse effects of high risk pregnancy and birth.

    2009-04-01

    Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) is a reportable, eradicable epizootic disease caused by the equine lentivirus of the retrovirus family which affects equids only and occurs worldwide. The virus is transmitted by blood, mainly by sanguivorous insects. The main symptoms of the disease are pyrexia, apathy, loss of body condition and weight, anemia, edema and petechia. However, infected horses can also be inapparent carriers without any overt signs. The disease is diagnosed by serological tests like the Coggins test and ELISA tests. Presently, Switzerland is offi cially free from EIA. However, Switzerland is permanently at risk of introducing the virus as cases of EIA have recently been reported in different European countries.

    2015-08-01

    Full Text Available Introduction: We present the case of a 65 years- old woman who was admitted with a severe macrocytic anemia Hb= 5.7g/dl and diffuse bone pain. Biologically she has moderate thrombocytopenia 35 000/µl, a hepatic cytolysis and cholestatic syndrome. Material and method: The patient was extensively evaluated before presentation for a mild iron - deficiency anemia for which she underwent endoscopic examination of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract- normal. The bone marrow aspiration on admission revealed a marked hyperplasia of the erythroblastic line with ~50% basophilic erythroblasts suggesting a regenerative erythroid hyperplasia. These changes along with the marked reticulocytosis on the peripheral blood smear oriented us towards a hemolytic anemia; Folic acid, vitamin B12, autoimmune tests and hemolytic tests were all normal. We continued the investigations with a thoraco-abdominopelvic computed tomography which identified diffuse demineralization, vertebral compactation and pelvic stress fractures. The breast examination revealed a right breast nodule, but the breast ultrasonography pleaded for benignity. Lacking a clear definitive diagnosis we decided to perform a bone marrow biopsy. Results: The osteo- medullary biopsy pointed towards a medullar invasion from a lobular mammary carcinoma; In these circumstances we performed an ultrasound guided biopsy of the right mammary lump thus histologically confirming a tumoral invasion of the bone marrow with subsequent anemia. The patient started chemotherapy in the Oncology ward. Conclusion: The particularity of this case consists in the pattern of anemia, which initially seemed iron deficient and afterwards macrocytic – apparently hemolytic and was actually due to the tumoral medullar invasion and also the nonspecific ultrasonographic appearance of the breast tumor.

    Anaemia is a problem that affects almost 10% over 65 years and 20% over 85 years. There is no physiological anaemia in the elderly. Any anaemia expresses the existence of a pathological process, regardless of its severity. Anaemia in the elderly is always associated with a poor prognosis that is in terms of mortality, morbidity and risk of fragility. The diagnostic approach to anemia in the elderly is the same as in younger individual. There are many causes of anaemia; anaemia balance is a complex diagnostic process. Most anaemias are due to a deficiency, chronic inflammation or comorbidity. However, in the elderly, the etiology of anaemia is often multifactorial. In a number of cases remain unexplained anaemia. In a number of cases, anemia remain unexplained. Treatment of anaemia is the treatment of the cause, but specific therapeutic aspects to the elderly should be considered, as among other martial substitution or use of erythropoietin (EPO).

    Full Text Available Thiamine Responsive megaloblastic anemia in DIDMOA (Wolfram syndrome has an autosomal- recessive mode of inheritance . Megaloblastic anemia and sideroblastic anemia is accompanied by diabetes insipidus (DI, diabetes mellitus (DM ,optic atrophy (OA and deafness (D. Neutropenia and thrombocytopenia are also present. We report a 7 month old girl with congenital macrocytic anemia; a rare clinical feature of Wolfram,s syndrome with increased plasma levels of blood glucose, both of which dramatically responded to administration of thiamine in large doses . The patient also had neurosensorial deafness, but no improvement was observed in the deafness. We presented the case because thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia is a rare clinical presentation of Wolfram syndrome and after institution of treatment with thiamine, the anemia and hyperglycemia returned to normal.

    The development of recombinant human erythropoietin and its introduction into the market in the late 1980s has significantly improved the quality of life of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and reduced the need for blood transfusions. Starting from a cautious target, a progressive increase in the recommended hemoglobin levels has been observed over the years, in parallel with an increase in the obtained levels. This trend has gone together with the publication of findings of observational studies showing a relationship between the increase in hemoglobin levels and a reduction in the mortality risk, with the conduction of clinical trials testing the effects of complete anemia correction, and with the compilation of guidelines on anemia control in CKD patients by scientific societies and organizations. In the last two years, evidence of a possible increase in the mortality risk in those patients who were randomized to high hemoglobin levels has resulted in a decrease in the upper limit of the recommended Hb target to be obtained with erythropoietin stimulating agents (ESA), and consequently in a narrowing of the target range. Comparison of guidelines on anemia control in CKD patients is an interesting starting point to discuss single recommendations, strengthen their importance, or suggest new topics of research to fill up important gaps in knowledge.

FONTES DE DADOS: Foram utilizadas as bases de dados Medline e Lilacs, selecionados artigos publicados entre os anos de 2000 e 2007 e livros-texto com conteúdo relevante. SÍNTESE DOS DADOS: A evolução do recém-nascido pré-termo diferencia-se da evolução apresentada pela população a termo. Estudos têm demonstrado que ex-prematuros apresentam alterações anatômicas cerebrais que se associam a prejuízos cognitivos. Várias regiões do sistema nervoso central (substância cinzenta, substância branca, corpo caloso, núcleo caudado, hipocampo e cerebelo têm seus volumes avaliados por neuroimagem e, apesar de resultados controversos, parecem ter desenvolvimento alterado nessa população. Diante disso, espera-se haver repercussão funcional e/ou cognitiva em crianças, adolescentes e adultos nascidos prematuramente. Ex-prematuros avaliados na infância tardia e na adolescência demonstram alterações de quociente de inteligência, memória, capacidade para cálculos e função cognitiva global. Déficits motores, na capacidade de planejamento e de associação, na coordenação motora e na atenção também foram relatados na literatura. CONCLUSÕES: A prematuridade pode levar a alterações anatômicas e estruturais do cérebro devido à interrupção das etapas de desenvolvimento pré-natal. Tais alterações podem causar déficits funcionais, tornando os ex-prematuros sujeitos a problemas cognitivos e motores, assim como suas repercussões nas atividades de vida diária, mesmo na adolescência e idade adulta.OBJECTIVE:To review the current literature about brain growth and development of premature children, as well as the motor and cognitive changes that may result from prematurity.

    The pathogenetic mechanisms of anemia in patients with chronic liver disease were observed. Seventeen patients with moderate to advanced hepatic diseases were studied by various methods. Only patients without previous blood loss were included : 14 had cirrhosis, 2 had active chronic hepatitis, and one had inferior vena cava obstruction with associated liver cirrhosis. The followings were the results: 1. The anemia based on red blood cell count, Hb., and Ht. was found in 76.5-78.6% of the patients. 2. Red cell indices indicated that normo-macrocytic and normochromic anemia was present is the majority of the patients. 3. No evidence of megaloblastic anemia was found on the basis of the morphological examinations. 4. Serum iron, TIBC, % saturation and iron content in the bone marrow indicated that iron deficiency anemia was present in about half of the patients. 5. In the view of the erythrocyte dynamics, primary increase in the red cell destruction was ascribed to the cause of the anemia. 6. Decrease in the red cell survival time was not correlated with MCV, % saturation and S.L. ratio. Also, hemoglobin level was not correlated with MCV, % saturation and T{sub 50} Cr. Therefore, multiple causes may be involved in the pathogenesis of the anemia. 7. Anemia as determined by the red cell volume was found in only 60% of the patients. It may be possible that hemodilutional anemia is present.

    Fanconi anemia is a rare genetic disease characterized by bone marrow failure, multiple congenital malformations, and an increased susceptibility to malignancy. At least 15 genes have been identified that are involved in the pathogenesis of Fanconi anemia. However, it is still a challenge to assign the complementation group and to characterize the molecular defects in patients with Fanconi anemia. In the current study, whole exome sequencing was used to identify the affected gene(s) in a boy with Fanconi anemia. A recurring, non-synonymous mutation was found (c.3971C>T, p.P1324L) as well as a novel frameshift mutation (c.989_995del, p.H330LfsX2) in FANCA gene. Our results indicate that whole exome sequencing may be useful in clinical settings for rapid identification of disease-causing mutations in rare genetic disorders such as Fanconi anemia. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: O aumento da sobrevida de prematuros traz o desafio de lidar com um amplo espectro de doenças pulmonares crônicas, incluindo displasia broncopulmonar, síndrome de Wilson-Mikity e sibilância recorrente. Este artigo discute o prognóstico pulmonar clínico e funcional de prematuros na infância e na adolescência. FONTE DE DADOS: Foi realizada pesquisa no MEDLINE de publicações entre 1970 e 2004 que abordassem função e crescimento pulmonar de prematuros, bem como a evolução clínica dos mesmos. SÍNTESE DOS DADOS: Eventos pré e pós-natais como insuficiência placentária, tabagismo, infecções, oxigênio e ventilação mecânica exercem efeitos importantes no desenvolvimento pulmonar, podendo conduzir a doenças pulmonares crônicas, sendo a displasia broncopulmonar a complicação clínica mais severa. No entanto, perdas significativas de função pulmonar também podem ocorrer em prematuros sem critérios de displasia broncopulmonar e que não apresentaram doença respiratória neonatal significativa. Nestes pacientes, o impacto da prematuridade sobre o sistema respiratório é freqüentemente subestimado. Clinicamente, observa-se incidência aumentada de pneumonias e bronquiolites, re-hospitalizações por doenças respiratórias, tosse e sibilância crônicas e hiper-reatividade brônquica. Posteriormente, percebe-se uma tendência à normalização da função pulmonar, mas persistem fluxos reduzidos, menor tolerância a exercícios e hiper-reatividade brônquica. CONCLUSÕES: A prematuridade, os eventos que a provocam e as intervenções que dela decorrem alteram de maneira permanente, em maior ou menor grau, o desenvolvimento do sistema respiratório. São necessários estudos adicionais para esclarecer o efeito de cada um desses insultos perinatais no desenvolvimento do sistema respiratório.OBJECTIVE: The increased survival of preterm infants poses the challenge of dealing with a wide range of chronic pulmonary

    The relationship between radiation exposure and aplastic anemia, clarified previously, is discussed. When persons such as radiological technicians receive whole-body irradiation in rather large doses, it is possible that aplastic anemia will result later on. However, this is difficult to determine because the irradiated region is limited despite large doses of radiation. (Bell, E.)

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder clinically characterized by developmental abnormalities, progressive bone marrow failure (BMF) and profound cancer predisposition. Approximately 65% of all affected individuals have mutation in the FANCA (Fanconi anemia complementation group A) gene. The mutation spectrum of the FANCA gene is highly heterogeneous. FA-A is usually associated with private FANCA mutations in individual families. We describe 3 unrelated patients with FA with a similar clinical presentation: BMF, renal anomalies and café-au-lait pigmentation without major skeletal abnormality. The molecular analysis of the FANCA gene using the FA MLPA kit P031-A2/P032 FANCA, showed homozygous deletion of exon 3 in all 3 patients. Molecular analysis of the flanking regions of exon 3 precisely defined unique deletion of 2,040 bp and duplication of C (1788_3828dupC). These are the first 3 patients homozygous for deletion of FANCA exon 3 described to date. Although not related, the patients originated from the same Gypsy-like ethnic population. We conclude that c.190-256_283 + 1680del2040 dupC mutation in the FANCA gene is a founder mutation in Macedonian FA patients of Gypsy-like ethnic origin. Our finding has very strong implications for these patients in formulating diagnostic and carrier-screening strategy for BMF and FA and to enable comprehensive genetic counseling. © 2013 S.

    Full Text Available Anemia is a common health problem among women throughout the world, however, there has been minimal research on women's concepts of anemia. The purpose of this study was to examine concepts of anemia in low income Nicaraguan women. A qualitative design was used. Audio-taped open-ended interviews in Spanish with 14 women were used to obtain data. Tapes were transcribed and content analyzed. The findings indicate that few of the women had biomedically accurate concepts of anemia, such as that it was due to lack of iron from poor eating. Others held folk medical beliefs including home remedies, for example drinking the milk of a mare or beet juice and eating certain foods such as bean soup. Most of the women did not know any symptoms of anemia and a few reported that it can develop into leukemia. These concepts of anemia are instructive for nurses working with patients from Nicaragua and will be useful in developing nursing interventions to alleviate this public health problem.La anemia es un problema de salud común entre las mujeres alrededor del mundo, sin embargo, se han realizado pocas investigaciones sobre los conceptos de anemia entre las mujeres. El propósito de este estudio fue examinar los conceptos de anemia en mujeres Nicaragüenses de bajos ingresos económicos. La investigación fue de orden cualitativa. Para la recolección de datos, se realizaron entrevistas semiestructuradas, grabadas en castellano, con 14 mujeres. Las cintas grabadas fueron transcritas y se realizó un análisis de contenido. Los resultados indican que pocas mujeres poseen conocimientos biomédicos sobre anemia, por ejemplo, la ingestión de alimentos pobres en hierro. Otras expresaron creencias populares, como remedios caseros, ingestión de leche de yegua o jugo de remolacha y ciertos alimentos como sopa de judías. La mayoría de las mujeres no conocía ningún síntoma de anemia y pocas relataron que creían que esta enfermedad podría transformarse en

    Aplastic Fanconi anemia (FA) accompanying malformation was firstly reported in 1927. This review concerns the recent findings on FA. FA belongs to the chromosomal instability syndrome and its detailed molecular mechanism is still unknown. The disease has been defined to be highly sensitive to radiation, however, which is quite an important problem since irradiation with a large dose of radiation is required before its radical treatment (bone marrow transplantation). FA cells are also mitomycin C-sensitive and FA patients are said to be the mosaic of the sensitive and normal cells. This enables to classify FA into 8 types of A-H groups, whose genotypes (FAA-FAH, FANCA-FANCH) are becoming clear. However, the intracellular function of the FANC-expressed protein, although known to form a big complex, is not elucidated yet. There is an abnormality in DNA processing such as re-linkage of the double strand-broken DNA in FA cells. FA causal gene FANCG is found identical to XRCC9 which is associated to high sensitivity to radiation. Analysis of FANC genes will provide useful findings on molecular mechanism of DNA-repair.

    Severe anemia is a major cause of sickness and death in African children, yet the causes of anemia in this population have been inadequately studied. We conducted a case-control study of 381 preschool children with severe anemia (hemoglobin concentration, <5.0 g per deciliter) and 757 preschool children without severe anemia in urban and rural settings in Malawi. Causal factors previously associated with severe anemia were studied. The data were examined by multivariate analysis and structural equation modeling. Bacteremia (adjusted odds ratio, 5.3; 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.6 to 10.9), malaria (adjusted odds ratio, 2.3; 95% CI, 1.6 to 3.3), hookworm (adjusted odds ratio, 4.8; 95% CI, 2.0 to 11.8), human immunodeficiency virus infection (adjusted odds ratio, 2.0; 95% CI, 1.0 to 3.8), the G6PD -202/-376 genetic disorder (adjusted odds ratio, 2.4; 95% CI, 1.3 to 4.4), vitamin A deficiency (adjusted odds ratio, 2.8; 95% CI, 1.3 to 5.8), and vitamin B 12 deficiency (adjusted odds ratio, 2.2; 95% CI, 1.4 to 3.6) were associated with severe anemia. Folate deficiency, sickle cell disease, and laboratory signs of an abnormal inflammatory response were uncommon. Iron deficiency was not prevalent in case patients (adjusted odds ratio, 0.37; 95% CI, 0.22 to 0.60) and was negatively associated with bacteremia. Malaria was associated with severe anemia in the urban site (with seasonal transmission) but not in the rural site (where malaria was holoendemic). Seventy-six percent of hookworm infections were found in children under 2 years of age. There are multiple causes of severe anemia in Malawian preschool children, but folate and iron deficiencies are not prominent among them. Even in the presence of malaria parasites, additional or alternative causes of severe anemia should be considered.

    The association between obesity and different types of anemia remained uncertain. The present study aimed to assess the relation between obesity parameters and the occurrence of iron deficiency anemia and also megaloblastic anemia among Iranian population. This cross-sectional study was performed on 1252 patients with morbid obesity that randomly selected from all patients referred to Clinic of obesity at Rasoul-e-Akram Hospital in 2014. The morbid obesity was defined according to the guideline as body mass index (BMI) equal to or higher than 40 kg/m2. Various laboratory parameters including serum levels of hemoglobin, iron, ferritin, folic acid, and vitamin B12 were assessed using the standard laboratory techniques. BMI was adversely associated with serum vitamin B12, but not associated with other hematologic parameters. The overall prevalence of iron deficiency anemia was 9.8%. The prevalence of iron deficiency anemia was independent to patients' age and also to body mass index. The prevalence of vitamin B12 deficiency was totally 20.9%. According to the multivariable logistic regression model, no association was revealed between BMI and the occurrence of iron deficiency anemia adjusting gender and age. A similar regression model showed that higher BMI could predict occurrence of vitamin B12 deficiency in morbid obese patients. Although iron deficiency is a common finding among obese patients, vitamin B12 deficiency is more frequent so about one-fifth of these patients suffer vitamin B12 deficiency. In fact, the exacerbation of obesity can result in exacerbation of vitamin B12 deficiency.

FONTE DOS DADOS: Foi realizada extensa revisão bibliográfica sobre o tópico, sendo selecionado material oriundo de livros-texto, teses, publicações de organismos nacionais e internacionais e artigos publicados selecionados a partir de pesquisa na base de dados MEDLINE referente ao período de 1990 a 2003, utilizando as palavras-chave breastfeeding and low birth weight e breastfeeding and preterm infant. Algumas referências relevantes dos trabalhos selecionados também foram utilizadas. SÍNTESE DOS DADOS: A partir da literatura levantada, verifica-se que vários aspectos tornam o leite materno particularmente adequado para a alimentação do recém-nascido prematuro. No entanto, observa-se, de modo geral, uma baixa incidência de êxito na amamentação de prematuros, especialmente em unidades neonatais de risco, apesar de haver evidências de que uma postura hospitalar favorável possibilite o aleitamento nessas crianças. CONCLUSÕES: Amamentar prematuros ainda é um desafio, mas é factível desde que haja apoio e suporte apropriados, principalmente pelos profissionais de saúde. As mães de prematuros necessitam de mais informações sobre a importância da amamentação para que possam tomar decisões sobre a nutrição dos seus filhos.OBJECTIVE: To describe the importance of breastfeeding and its promotion in the in-hospital clinical management of premature newborns.

    Anemia affects one-fourth of the world’s population, and iron deficiency is the predominant cause. Anemia is associated with chronic fatigue, impaired cognitive function, and diminished well-being. Patients with iron deficiency anemia of unknown etiology are frequently referred to a gastroenterologist because in the majority of cases the condition has a gastrointestinal origin. Proper management improves quality of life, alleviates the symptoms of iron deficiency, and reduces the need for blood transfusions. Treatment options include oral and intravenous iron therapy; however, the efficacy of oral iron is limited in certain gastrointestinal conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, and autoimmune gastritis. This article provides a critical summary of the diagnosis and treatment of iron deficiency anemia. In addition, it includes a management algorithm that can help the clinician determine which patients are in need of further gastrointestinal evaluation. This facilitates the identification and treatment of the underlying condition and avoids the unnecessary use of invasive methods and their associated risks. PMID:27099596

    Thiamine responsive megaloblastic anemia (TRMA) is an autosomal recessive disease caused by loss of function mutations in the SLC19A2 gene. TRMA is characterized by anemia, deafness, and diabetes. In some cases, optic atrophy or more rarely retinitis pigmentosa is noted. We now report two sisters, the eldest of which presented to a different hospital during childhood with sensorineural deafness, which was treated with a hearing prosthesis, insulin requiring diabetes, retinitis pigmentosa, optic atrophy, and macrocytic anemia. These features initially suggested a clinical diagnosis of Wolfram syndrome (WS). Therapy with thiamine was initiated which resulted in the resolution of the anemia. The younger sister, who was affected with sensorineural deafness, was referred to our hospital for non-autoimmune diabetes. She was found to have macrocytosis and ocular abnormalities. Because a diagnosis of TRMA was suspected, therapy with insulin and thiamine was started. Sequencing analysis of the SLC19A2 gene identified a compound heterozygous mutation p.Y81X/p.L457X (c.242insA/c.1370delT) in both sisters. Non-autoimmune diabetes associated with deafness and macrocytosis, without anemia, suggests a diagnosis of TRMA. Patients clinically diagnosed with WS with anemia and/or macrocytosis should be reevaluated for TRMA. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

    Background: A lack of information on the etiology of anemia has hampered the design and monitoring of anemia-control efforts. Objective: We aimed to evaluate predictors of anemia in preschool children (PSC) (age range: 6–59 mo) by country and infection-burden category. Design: Cross-sectional data from 16 surveys (n = 29,293) from the Biomarkers Reflecting Inflammation and Nutritional Determinants of Anemia (BRINDA) project were analyzed separately and pooled by category of infection burden. We assessed relations between anemia (hemoglobin concentration anemia (hemoglobin concentration anemia with concomitant iron deficiency (defined as an inflammation-adjusted ferritin concentration anemia in >50% of surveys. Associations between breastfeeding and anemia were attenuated by controlling for child age, which was negatively associated with anemia. The most consistent predictors of severe anemia were malaria, poor sanitation, and underweight. In multivariable pooled models, child age, iron deficiency, and stunting independently predicted anemia and severe anemia. Inflammation was generally associated with anemia in the high- and very high–infection groups but not in the low- and medium-infection groups. In PSC with anemia, 50%, 30%, 55%, and 58% of children had concomitant iron deficiency in low-, medium-, high-, and very high–infection categories, respectively. Conclusions: Although causal inference is limited by cross-sectional survey data, results suggest anemia-control programs should address both iron deficiency and infections. The relative importance of factors that are associated with anemia varies by setting, and thus, country-specific data are needed to guide programs. PMID:28615260

    Fanconi anemia is a heterogeneous genetic disorder that is characterized by progressive bone marrow failure, congenital anomalies, and markedly increased risk for malignancies. Mutations in the FANCF (FA-F) gene represent approximately 2% of affected patients. Currently, information on the phenotypic findings of patients with Fanconi anemia from biallelic mutations in FANCF is limited. Here, we report three patients who illustrate the clinical variability within the FA-F group. This analysis suggests a more severe phenotype for those with the common c.484_485delCT mutation. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Full Text Available Fanconi Anemia (FA is a rare autosomic recessive and X-linked disease with chromosomal instability after exposure to crosslinking agents as the hallmark. Clinical features of FA are somatic malformations, progressive bone marrow failure and cancer proneness, however there is wide clinical heterogeneity. The symptom most frequently and early associated with morbidity and mortality is progressive pancytopenia in the first decade of life although acute myelogenous leukemia (AML or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS can appear before aplastic anemia. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC of the head-neck, intestinal or genital tract has a very high incidence in FA and can appear at young age. This paper will focus on treatment of bone marrow failure in FA.

    Among the Japanese radiological technicians, four deaths from aplastic anemia have been reported after 1930. On the other hand, during the period from 1930 to 1960, the population of radiological technicians is estimated to be 74,400 man-years, in which 0.5 aplastic anemias are expected. However, actually three died from aplastic anemia. This difference is statistically significant at the 1% level. While, in the period from 1961 to 1973, the observed value is 1 against 0.7 expected. It is concluded that aplastic anemia had been induced frequently among the Japanese radiological technicians in the era when there was much exposure to occupational radiation. (orig.) [de

    Full Text Available Incidents of heart and renal failure (HF, RF together, are increasing in our country and all over the world, so a great attention has been dedicated to this problem recently. These diseases together have shown bad results because of the process of accelerated arteriosclerosis, structural changes of myocardium, oxidative stress, inflammation, increased activities of sympathetic nervous system (SNS, increased activities of a renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS. These factors are crucial in the development of patho-physiological process and consequential development of anemia, that together with heart and renal failure through interaction, cause serious disorder that we call the cardio-renal anemia syndrome. We examined effects of erythropoietin (Epoetin beta at 90 (60 men and 30 women pre-dialysed and dialysed patients with HF signs during a period of three years in individual dozes of 2000-6000 units subcutaneous (sc weekly.

    Full Text Available Anemia is very commonly encountered in general clinical practice among all age groups. The more commonly used way to classify anemia has been to categorize it as being microcytic (mean corpuscular volume [MCV] 100 fL, which in turn allows for a more practical way to attempt to come up with a cause for any decrease in hemoglobin. Microcytic anemias are usually due to iron deficiency (in turn, a result of a number of different etiologies ranging from decreased intake, malabsorption, or blood loss, hemoglobinopathies (thalassemic syndromes, and some cases of severe anemia resulting from chronic disease. Normocytic anemia is often a result of anemia of chronic disease, hemolysis, or secondary to bone marrow failure. Macrocytic anemias are frequently caused by deficiencies of folic acid and/or Vitamin B12, exposure to toxic agents like drugs that interfere with DNA metabolism and alcohol, as also bone marrow failure states, such as from myelodysplastic syndrome. A comprehensive history, physical examination, and directed laboratory evaluation will help to identify a specific cause for anemia.

    Radio-iron utilization was nearly normal in these patients, only bilateral nephrectomized patients showed a reduced radio-iron utilization. Red blood half-life span was shortened in all patients, well corresponding to the degree of anemia. Parameters of erythropoesis like plasma iron clearance, bone marrow transit time, erythron iron turnover, non-erythron iron turnover and hemolysis iron turnover failed to quantitate disorders of red blood cell regeneration in these patients. No defect in red blood cell enzyme activity could be demonstrated. Enzymes of glycolysis were increased corresponding to the reduced erythrocyte half-life span. (orig.) [de

    2016-05-01

    Anemia coexists with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in up to two-thirds of patients, significantly impairing quality of life. The most common types of anemia in patients with IBD are iron deficiency anemia and anemia of chronic disease, which often overlap. In most cases, available laboratory tests allow successful diagnosis of iron deficiency, where difficulties appear, recently established indices such as soluble transferrin-ferritin ratio or percentage of hypochromic red cells are used. In this review, we discuss the management of the most common types of anemia in respect of the latest available data. Thus, we provide the mechanisms underlying pathophysiology of these entities; furthermore, we discuss the role of hepcidin in developing anemia in IBD. Next, we present the treatment options for each type of anemia and highlight the importance of individual choice of action. We also focus on newly developed intravenous iron preparations and novel, promising drug candidates targeting hepcidin. Concurrently, we talk about difficulties in differentiating between the true and functional iron deficiency, and discuss tools facilitating the process. Finally, we emphasize the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment of anemia in IBD. We conclude that management of anemia in patients with IBD is tricky, and appropriate screening of patients regarding anemia is substantial.

  12. Genetic diagnosis for congenital hemolytic anemia.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ohga, Shouichi

    2016-01-01

    Congenital hemolytic anemia is a group of monogenic diseases presenting with anemia due to increased destruction of circulating erythrocytes. The etiology of inherited anemia accounts for germline mutations of the responsible genes coding for the structural components of erythrocytes and extra-erythrocytes. The erythrocyte abnormalities are classified into three major disorders of red cell membrane defects, hemoglobinopathies, and red cell enzymopathies. The extra-erythrocyte abnormalities, typified by consumption coagulopathy and intravascular hemolysis, include Upshaw-Schulman syndrome and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome. The clinical manifestations of congenital hemolytic anemia are anemia, jaundice, cholelithiasis and splenomegaly, while the onset mode and severity are both variable. Genetic overlapping of red cell membrane protein disorders, and distinct frequency and mutation spectra differing among races make it difficult to understand this disease entity. On the other hand, genetic modifiers for the phenotype of β-globin diseases provide useful information for selecting the optimal treatment and for long-term management. Recently, next generation sequencing techniques have enabled us to determine the novel causative genes in patients with undiagnosed hemolytic anemias. We herein review the concept and strategy for genetic diagnosis of inherited hemolytic anemias.

    Full Text Available Las encuestas demográficas de salud y población del Perú indican que las tasas globales de fecundidad, la proporción de adolescentes embarazadas y la mortalidad maternoinfantil son más altas en la selva que en otras zonas del país. Las parasitosis intestinales endémicas agravan el riesgo de anemia ya generalmente presente en las embarazadas por deficiencias de hierro, ácido fólico y otros nutrientes. En muchos países latinoamericanos, esa es la complicación más frecuente del embarazo y está asociada con partos pretérmino, bajo peso al nacer y mortalidad perinatal. Los estudios realizados sobre este tema en la selva peruana son escasos y no se dispone de estimaciones confiables de la prevalencia de anemia durante la gestación. Los autores se propusieron determinar la prevalencia de anemia en mujeres gestantes que acudían al Hospital Regional de Pucallpa, en la selva del Perú, entre enero de 1993 y junio de 1995. El estudio de corte transversal se basó en los registros de control prenatal y de parto de 1 015 embarazadas y permitió estudiar la asociación entre la prevalencia de anemia y variables como edad cronológica, escolaridad, número de gestaciones previas y peso de la madre al inicio del embarazo. También se compararon los valores de la hemoglobina materna con el peso de los recién nacidos. La prevalencia de anemia en la población de gestantes fue de 70,1%, valor que no se modificó por efecto de la edad materna, la escolaridad ni el intervalo intergenésico. La prevalencia de anemia se asoció directamente con el número de gestaciones e inversamente con la ganancia de peso durante el embarazo. La tasa de mortalidad perinatal fue de 37,7 por 1 000 nacidos. Ni esta tasa ni el peso de los recién nacidos resultaron asociados con el grado de anemia de la madre.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN Tanto la deficiencia como la sobrecarga de hierro son situaciones que ponen en riesgo la salud y la vida de las personas, por lo que es importante mantener su homeostasis. Como la hemoglobina contiene 70% del hierro del organismo, la OMS recomienda su medición para determinar la prevalencia de anemia por deficiencia de hierro (ID, a pesar que ellos mismos reconocen que la anemia no es específica de ID. Como la hemoglobina aumenta con la altitud de residencia, la OMS recomienda corregir el punto de corte para definir anemia en la altura. Una objeción a esta corrección es que el aumento de la hemoglobina en la altura no es universal ni aumenta de manera lineal. Además, las poblaciones de mayor antigüedad generacional tienen menos hemoglobina que las más recientes. En infantes, niños, gestantes y adultos, la prevalencia de anemia usando hemoglobina corregida es 3-5 veces mayor que usando marcadores del estatus de hierro. Los programas estatales buscan combatir la anemia mediante la suplementación de hierro; no obstante, resultan ineficaces, especialmente en las poblaciones de altura. Entonces, ¿hay deficiencia de hierro en la altura? Los niveles de hepcidina sérica, hormona que regula la disponibilidad de hierro, son similares a los de nivel del mar indicando que en la altura no hay deficiencia de hierro. Un problema adicional al corregir la hemoglobina por la altura, es que las prevalencias de eritrocitosis disminuyen. En conclusión, la corrección del punto de corte de la hemoglobina en la altura para determinar deficiencia de hierro es inadecuada.

    2011-01-01

    Acquired aplastic anemia is a potentially fatal bone marrow failure disorder that is characterized by pancytopenia and a hypocellular bone marrow. Hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation or bone marrow transplantation (BMT) is the treatment of choice for young patients who have a matched sibling donor. Immunosuppression with either anti-thymocyte globulin and cyclosporine or high-dose cyclophosphamide is an effective therapy for patients who are not suitable BMT candidates owing to age or lack of a suitable donor. Results of BMT from unrelated and mismatched donors are improving, but presently this treatment option is best reserved for those patients who do not respond, relapse or develop secondary clonal disorders following immunosuppressive therapy. Efforts are currently underway to both improve immunosuppressive regimens and to expand the application of BMT. PMID:21495931

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder. Clinical care is complicated by variable age at onset and severity of hematologic symptoms. Recent advances in the molecular biology of FA have allowed us to investigate the relationship between FA genotype and the nature and severity of the clinical phenotype. Two hundred forty-five patients from all 7 known complementation groups (FA-A to FA-G) were studied. Mutations were detected in one of the cloned FANC genes in 169 patients; in the remainder the complementation group was assigned by cell fusion or Western blotting. A range of qualitative and quantitative clinical parameters was compared for each complementation group and for different classes of mutation. Significant phenotypic differences were found. FA-G patients had more severe cytopenia and a higher incidence of leukemia. Somatic abnormalities were less prevalent in FA-C, but more common in the rare groups FA-D, FA-E, and FA-F. In FA-A, patients homozygous for null mutations had an earlier onset of anemia and a higher incidence of leukemia than those with mutations producing an altered protein. In FA-C, there was a later age of onset of aplastic anemia and fewer somatic abnormalities in patients with the 322delG mutation, but there were more somatic abnormalities in patients with IVS4 + 4A --> T. This study indicates that FA patients with mutations in the FANCG gene and patients homozygous for null mutations in FANCA are high-risk groups with a poor hematologic outcome and should be considered as candidates both for frequent monitoring and early therapeutic intervention.

    Utilizing longitudinal data from the nationally-representative Mexico Family Life Survey, this study assesses the association between family structure and iron-deficient anemia among children ages 3-12 in Mexico. The longitudinal models (n = 4649), which control for baseline anemia status and allow for consideration of family structure transitions, suggest that children living in stable-cohabiting and single-mother families and those who have recently experienced a parental union dissolution have higher odds of anemia than those in stable-married, father-present family structures. Interaction effects indicate that unmarried family contexts have stronger associations with anemia in older children (over age five); and, that the negative effects of parental union dissolution are exacerbated in poorer households. Resident maternal grandparents have a significant beneficial effect on child anemia independent of parental family structure. These results highlight the importance of family structure for child micronutrient deficiencies and suggest that understanding social processes within households may be critical to preventing child anemia in Mexico.

    Graves' disease is often associated with other autoimmune disorders, including rare associations with autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA). We describe a unique presentation of thyroid storm and warm AIHA diagnosed concurrently in a young female with hyperthyroidism. The patient presented with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and altered mental status. Laboratory studies revealed hemoglobin 3.9g/dL, platelets 171×10 9 L -1 , haptoglobin storm and warm AIHA. She was started on glucocorticoids to treat both warm AIHA and thyroid storm, as well as antithyroid medications, propranolol and folic acid. Due to profound anemia and hemodynamic instability, the patient was transfused two units of uncrossmatched packed red blood cells slowly and tolerated this well. She was discharged on methimazole as well as a prolonged prednisone taper, and achieved complete resolution of the thyrotoxicosis and anemia at one month. Hyperthyroidism can affect all three blood cell lineages of the hematopoietic system. Anemia can be seen in 10-20% of patients with thyrotoxicosis. Several autoimmune processes can lead to anemia in Graves' disease, including pernicious anemia, celiac disease, and warm AIHA. This case illustrates a rarely described presentation of a patient with Graves' disease presenting with concurrent thyroid storm and warm AIHA. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Anemia at hospitalization is often treated as an accompaniment to an underlying illness, without active investigation, despite its association with morbidity. Development of hospital-acquired anemia (HAA) has also been associated with increased risk for poor outcomes. Together, they may further heighten morbidity risk from bad to worse. The aims of this study were to (1) examine mortality, length of stay, and total charges in patients with present-on-admission (POA) anemia and (2) determine whether these are exacerbated by development of HAA. In this cohort investigation, from January 1, 2009, to August 31, 2011, a total of 44,483 patients with POA anemia were admitted to a single health system compared with a reference group of 48,640 without POA anemia or HAA. Data sources included the University HealthSystem Consortium database and electronic medical records. Risk-adjustment methods included logistic and linear regression models for mortality, length of stay, and total charges. Present-on-admission anemia was defined by administrative coding. Hospital-acquired anemia was determined by changes in hemoglobin values from the electronic medical record. Approximately one-half of the patients experienced worsening of anemia with development of HAA. Risk for death and resource use increased with increasing severity of HAA. Those who developed severe HAA had 2-fold greater odds for death; that is, mild POA anemia with development of severe HAA resulted in greater mortality (odds ratio, 2.57; 95% confidence interval, 2.08-3.18; P < 0.001), increased length of stay (2.23; 2.16-2.31; P < 0.001), and higher charges (2.09; 2.03-2.15; P < 0.001). Present-on-admission anemia is associated with increased mortality and resource use. This risk is further increased from bad to worse when patients develop HAA. Efforts to address POA anemia and HAA deserve attention.

    Objective: To study the effect of oxygen-carrying ability of blood efficacy of radiotherapy for patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Methods: Altogether 161 cases of patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma were classified according to severity of anemia, and Hb, RBC, MCH, HCT, MCV, MCHC and RDW were tested before, during and after radiotherapy. The patients were followed-up for up to 5 years, the relationship and mechanism among anemia, radiotherapy effects and survival rate was discussed. Results: The survival rate between anemia group and non-anemia group was different significantly (P<0.05). Anemia before radiotherapy, anemia appearance or anemia deterioration during radiotherapy were sensitive factors affecting radiotherapy results. The anemia more severe, the radiotherapy worse. Conclusion: Anemia-hypohemoglobinemia leads to decrease of oxygen-carrying capacity of blood, resulting in oxygen deficiency of tumor cells and their radiotherapy resistance. Therefore this method is worthy of further studies

    Acquired aplastic anemia(aAA is a severe and rare disease, characterized by hematopoietic bone marrow failure and peripheral cytopenia. The pathophysiology is immune mediated in most cases, activated T1 lymphocytes have been identified as effector cells . The disease can be successfully treated with combined immunosuppressive therapy or allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

    Hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia (HAA  is a syndrome of bone marrow failure following the development of acute seronegative hepatitis. HAA syndrome most often affects young males who presented severe pancytopenia two to three months after an episode of acute hepatitis. The clinical course of hepatitis is more frequently benign but a fulminant severe course is also described. The bone marrow failure can be explosive and severe and it is usually fatal if untreated, no correlations have been observed between severity of hepatitis and AA.

    In none of the  studies a specific virus could be identified and most cases are seronegative for known hepatitis viruses. The clinical characteristics  and response to immunotherapy indicate a central role for immune-mediated mechanism in the pathogenesis of HAA. The initial

    Iron deficiency and immune activation are the two most frequent causes of anemia, both of which are based on disturbances of iron homeostasis. Iron deficiency anemia results from a reduction of the body's iron content due to blood loss, inadequate dietary iron intake, its malabsorption, or increased iron demand. Immune activation drives a diversion of iron fluxes from the erythropoietic bone marrow, where hemoglobinization takes place, to storage sites, particularly the mononuclear phagocytes system in liver and spleen. This results in iron-limited erythropoiesis and anemia. This review summarizes current diagnostic and pathophysiological concepts of iron deficiency anemia and anemia of inflammation, as well as combined conditions, and provides a brief outlook on novel therapeutic options.

    A 16-year-old boy who was diagnosed to have sickle cell anemia was referred to our center. The parental consanguinity, growth retardation and dysmorphic features prompted a search for possible Fanconi's Anemia (FA). The diepoxybutane (DEB) test was positive, confirming FA. The interaction of both diseases might account for his relatively mild phenotype in terms of both sickle cell anemia (or Hb S, HBB: c.20A > T) and FA. The high Hb F level that might be related to concomitant FA, may have caused a milder phenotype of sickle cell anemia, whereas nitric oxide (NO) depletion as a consequence of sickle cell anemia, may have caused a delay in the bone marrow failure of FA.

    Purpose: To review the impact of anemia/tumor hypoxemia on the quality of life and survival in cancer patients, and to assess the problems associated with the correction of this difficulty. Methods: MEDLINE searches were performed to find relevant literature regarding anemia and/or tumor hypoxia in cancer patients. Articles were evaluated in order to assess the epidemiology, adverse patient effects, anemia correction guidelines, and mechanisms of hypoxia-induced cancer cell growth and/or therapeutic resistance. Past and current clinical studies of radiosensitization via tumor oxygenation/hypoxic cell sensitization were reviewed. All clinical studies using multi-variate analysis were analyzed to show whether or not anemia and/or tumor hypoxemia affected tumor control and patient survival. Articles dealing with the correction of anemia via transfusion and/or erythropoietin were reviewed in order to show the impact of the rectification on the quality of life and survival of cancer patients. Results: Approximately 40-64% of patients presenting for cancer therapy are anemic. The rate of anemia rises with the use of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and hormonal therapy for prostate cancer. Anemia is associated with reductions both in quality of life and survival. Tumor hypoxemia has been hypothesized to lead to tumor growth and resistance to therapy because it leads to angiogenesis, genetic mutations, resistance to apoptosis, and a resistance to free radicals from chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Nineteen clinical studies of anemia and eight clinical studies of tumor hypoxemia were found that used multi-variate analysis to determine the effect of these conditions on the local control and/or survival of cancer patients. Despite differing definitions of anemia and hypoxemia, all studies have shown a correlation between low hemoglobin levels and/or higher amounts of tumor hypoxia with poorer prognosis.

The principal cellular phenotype is hypersensitivity to DNA damage, particularly interstrand DNA crosslinks. The FA proteins constitute a multiprotein pathway whose precise biochemical function(s) remain unknown. Five of the FA proteins (FANCA, C, E, F and G) interact in a nuclear complex upstream of FANCD2. FANCB and FANCD1 have not yet been cloned, but it is likely that FANCB is part of the nuclear complex and that FANCD1 acts downstream of FANCD2. The FA nuclear complex regulates the mono-ubiquitination of FANCD2 in response to DNA damage, resulting in targeting of this protein into nuclear foci. These foci also contain BRCA1 and other DNA damage response proteins. In male meiosis, FANCD2 also co-localizes with BRCA1 at synaptonemal complexes. Together, these data suggest that the FA pathway functions primarily as a DNA damage response system, although its exact role (direct involvement in DNA repair versus indirect, facilitating role) has not yet been defined.

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a condition characterized by genetic instability and short stature, which is due to growth hormone (GH) deficiency in most cases. However, no apparent relationships have been identified between FA complementation group genes and GH. In this study, we thereby considered an association between FA and Laron syndrome (LS) (insulin-like growth factor 1 [IGF-1] deficiency). A 21-year-old female Mexican patient with a genetic diagnosis of FA was referred to our research department for an evaluation of her short stature. Upon admission to our facility, her phenotype led to a suspicion of LS; accordingly, serum levels of IGF-1 and IGF binding protein 3 were analyzed and a GH stimulation test was performed. In addition, we used a next-generation sequencing approach for a molecular evaluation of FA disease-causing mutations and genes involved in the GH-IGF signaling pathway. Tests revealed low levels of IGF-1 and IGF binding protein 3 that remained within normal ranges, as well as a lack of response to GH stimulation. Sequencing confirmed a defect in the GH receptor signaling pathway. To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to suggest an association between FA and LS. We propose that IGF-1 administration might improve some FA complications and functions based upon IGF-1 beneficial actions observed in animal, cell and indirect clinical models: erythropoiesis modulation, immune function improvement and metabolic regulation.

    Full Text Available No presente artigo abordaram-se vários aspectos relacionados à natureza molecular da anemia falciforme, desordem hematológica de caráter hereditário que acomete expressivo número de indivíduos em várias regiões do mundo. As pesquisas realizadas em torno desta patologia da hemácia, ao longo de quase um século, a partir de 1910, cooperaram para a criação de um novo e importante segmento da ciência, denominado biologia molecular. A descoberta dos polimorfismos da mutação (GAT->GTG no gene que codifica a cadeia beta da hemoglobina, originando diferentes haplótipos da doença, permitiu um melhor e mais amplo conhecimento em torno da heterogeneidade clínica nos pacientes falcêmicos. Analisando a hemoglobina na sua estrutura normal e mutante, sua produção e evolução, pode-se ter um entendimento mais completo da fisiopatologia desta doença e da sua complexidade clínica.

    Heart failure is an important community health problem. Prevalence and incidence of heart failure have continued to rise over the years. Despite recent advances in heart failure therapy, prognosis is still poor, rehospitalization rate is very high, and quality of life is worse. Co-morbidities in heart failure have negative impact on clinical course of the disease, further impair prognosis, and add difficulties to treatment of clinical picture. Therefore, successful management of co-morbidities is strongly recommended in addition to conventional therapy for heart failure. One of the most common co-morbidities in heart failure is presence of iron deficiency and anemia. Current evidence suggests that iron deficiency and anemia are more prevalent in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction, as well as those with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction. Moreover, iron deficiency and anemia are referred to as independent predictors for poor prognosis in heart failure. There is strong relationship between iron deficiency or anemia and severity of clinical status of heart failure. Over the last two decades, many clinical investigations have been conducted on clinical effectiveness of treatment of iron deficiency or anemia with oral iron, intravenous iron, and erythropoietin therapies. Studies with oral iron and erythropoietin therapies did not provide any clinical benefit and, in fact, these therapies have been shown to be associated with increase in adverse clinical outcomes. However, clinical trials in patients with iron deficiency in the presence or absence of anemia have demonstrated considerable clinical benefits of intravenous iron therapy, and based on these positive outcomes, iron deficiency has become target of therapy in management of heart failure. The present report assesses current approaches to iron deficiency and anemia in heart failure in light of recent evidence.

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by progressive pancytopenia, congenital malformations, and predisposition to acute myeloid leukemia. Fanconi anemia is genetically heterogeneous, with at least eight distinct complementation groups of FA (A, B, C, D1, D2, E, F, and G) having been defined by somatic cell fusion studies. Six genes (FANCA, FANCC, FANCD2, FANCE, FANCG, and FANCF) have been cloned. Mutations of the seventh Fanconi anemia gene, BRCA2, have been shown to lead to FAD1 and probably FAB groups. In order to characterize the molecular defects underlying FA in Tunisia, 39 families were genotyped with microsatellite markers linked to known FA gene. Haplotype analysis and homozygosity mapping assigned 43 patients belonging to 34 families to the FAA group, whereas one family was probably not linked to the FANCA gene or to any known FA genes. For patients belonging to the FAA group, screening for mutations revealed four novel mutations: two small homozygous deletions 1693delT and 1751-1754del, which occurred in exon 17 and exon 19, respectively, and two transitions, viz., 513G-->A in exon 5 and A-->G at position 166 (IVS24+166A-->G) of intron 24. Two new polymorphisms were also identified in intron 24 (IVS24-5G/A and IVS24-6C/G).

    Full Text Available Un porcentaje considerable de pacientes presentan anemia post trasplante renal. Su origen es multifactorial y sus principales etiologías dependen de la etapa post trasplante que se considere. Estudiamos en un grupo de 134 pacientes los factores asociados con anemia tardía (6 meses post trasplante y sus implicaciones clínicas a mediano plazo. En el análisis de regresión múltiple, la duración de la oliguria post trasplante y el número de episodios de rechazo fueron las variables significativamente asociadas con esta complicación. La supervivencia del órgano mostró una diferencia significativa a los 36 meses entre los grupos (83% en los anémicos versus 96% de los no anémicos p < 0.01. No observamos diferencias en mortalidad o eventos cardiovasculares. Concluimos que la presencia de anemia al sexto mes post trasplante renal está independiente y significativamente asociada con factores que condicionan la masa renal funcionante que explicarían además la menor supervivencia del injerto renal observada en estos pacientes.

    Full Text Available Objective: The aim of this study was to analyze the reticulocyte maturity indices (low, medium, and high fluorescence ratios in iron deficient 1- to 6-year-old children, and identify the prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in this population. Methods: The present study included 39 subjects, divided into two groups: control subjects (n = 33, and subjects with iron deficiency anemia (n = 6. The results were analyzed by Student's t-test for comparison of means. Differences were considered significant when two-tailed p-value < 0.05. Results: Subjects with iron deficiency anemia presented increases in the proportion of mean (10.3 ± 4.7% vs. 6.0 ± 3.4%; p-value = 0.003, and high fluorescence reticulocytes (2.3 ± 0.87% vs. 0.9 ± 0.9%; p-value = 0.03 compared to the control group. The prevalence of anemia in this population was 15% (n = 6. Conclusion: The indices related to immaturity of reticulocytes are higher in the presence of iron deficiency, thus demonstrating a deficiency in the raw material to form hemoglobin and are, therefore, possible early markers of iron deficiency and anemia. We emphasize the need to standardize these indices for use in clinical practice and lab test results.

    Full Text Available Objetivo: o presente estudo procura avaliar as possíveis patologias que se manifestam associadas à hiperecogenicidade dos vasos talâmicos na ultra-sonografia cerebral, e observar a freqüência com que ocorrem. Métodos: a amostra foi constituída de 206 recém-nascidos prematuros, nascidos no Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre, no período de julho de 1998 a maio de 1999. Todos realizaram a ultra-sonografia cerebral na primeira semana de vida. Foram incluídos no estudo aqueles prematuros que necessitaram de internação hospitalar, e que tiveram o termo de consentimento informado assinado por um dos responsáveis. Foram excluídos aqueles cuja ultra-sonografia cerebral evidenciava sangramento cerebral e/ou malformações congênitas associadas, e os que evoluíram para óbito antes da realização do exame. Resultados: a ultra-sonografia cerebral levou à identificação de 65 recém-nascidos prematuros com hiperecogenicidade dos vasos talâmicos e de 141 recém-nascidos prematuros sem. Conclusão: a forma de apresentação do tipo pélvica ao nascimento, a maior idade gestacional, o maior peso do recém-nascido ao nascimento e a classificação grande para a idade gestacional foram fatores de risco para a ocorrência de hiperecogenicidade dos vasos talâmicos, enquanto a presença de hipertensão materna durante o período de gestação tendeu a ser fator de proteção. Os recém-nascidos que apresentaram crises convulsivas durante o período de internação hospitalar tiveram risco 3,2 vezes maior de ter hiperecogenicidade dos vasos talâmicos, quando comparados aos que não apresentaram crises convulsivas.Objective: the aim of this study is to evaluate possible pathologies associated with hyperechogenicity of thalamic vessels (HETV, which are found on brain ultrasounds (BUS, as well as to observe the frequency of their occurrence.

    Sickle cell anemia is an inherited hematologic disorder associated with hemolytic and vaso-occlusive complications. An activation of coagulation is also a prominent feature of sickle cell anemia. Growing evidence indicates that coagulation may contribute to the inflammation and vascular injury in sickle cell anemia. This review focuses on tissue factor expression and its contribution to the activation of coagulation, thrombosis and vascular inflammation in sickle cell anemia.

  5. Diagnosis of Fanconi Anemia by Diepoxybutane Analysis

    Auerbach, Arleen D.

    2015-01-01

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a genetically and phenotypically heterogeneous disorder characterized by congenital malformations, progressive bone marrow failure, and predisposition to cancer, particularly hematological malignancies and solid tumors of the head and neck. The main role of FA proteins is in the repair of DNA interstrand crosslinks (ICLs). FA results from pathogenic variants in at least 16 distinct genes, causing genomic instability. Although the highly variable phenotype makes accurate diagnosis on the basis of clinical manifestations difficult in some patients, diagnosis based on a profound sensitivity to DNA crosslinking agents can be used to identify the pre-anemia patient as well as patients with aplastic anemia or leukemia who may or may not have the physical stigmata associated with the syndrome. Diepoxybutane (DEB) analysis is the preferred test for FA because other agents have higher rates of false-positive and false-negative results. PMID:25827349

    Full Text Available Primary gastric masses are rare in childhood, and a gastric ganglioneuroma has not been reported in the pediatric population. In this report, we describe a 12-year-old female who presented with iron deficiency anemia and melena. Endoscopy was performed to elucidate the source of her symptoms, and revealed a gastric mass with overlying ulceration. Following resection and pathologic examination, the mass was diagnosed as a solitary polypoid ganglioneuroma. A solitary polypoid ganglioneuroma is an uncommon, benign tumor of neural crest cell origin. They are most often asymptomatic and found incidentally, but can present with rectal bleeding, obstruction, pain, and changes in bowel function. Complete resection is the therapy of choice to prevent progression of symptoms or rare transformation into a malignant neuroblastic tumor, like neuroblastoma. As of the patient's last post-operative appointment, she was healthy with resolution of her anemia. Keywords: Ganglioneuroma, Pediatric, Gastric mass, Anemia, Neuroblastic tumor

  7. Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia with Iron Deficiency Anemia

    Full Text Available We report a rare case of anemia and thrombocytopenia as a result of uterine fibroid and adenomyosis, complicated by immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP. Symptoms were presented as menorrhagia and metrorrhagia in a 34-year-old African American woman, who was later treated with blood and platelet transfusion and iron therapy with steroids. Uterine fibroids are commonly found to cause hematologic disturbances such as anemia and reactive thrombocytosis and, less commonly, thrombocytopenia. Moreover, such hematologic disturbances are secondary to heavy and irregular uterine bleeding, which is typically presented. A previous uterine fibroid diagnosis was made and reconfirmed by pelvic and transvaginal ultrasound to exclude other locoregional pathologies. ITP was suggested by Coombs test and several other serologies, leading to confirmation via bone marrow biopsy. In a previous case study, we reported positive responses in hemotecrit and platelet count after the introduction of iron therapy to an iron-depleted middle-aged female presenting severe anemia and thrombocytopenia. 1

    In a patient with sickle cell disease receiving chronic transfusion, exacerbation of anemia with reticulocytopenia must prompt consideration of a delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction with hyperhemolysis, as further transfusion may worsen this condition; definitive diagnosis is sometimes difficult. Anemia evolving during parvovirus B19-induced erythroid hypoplasia (transient aplastic crisis) should be attenuated in chronic transfusion patients due to superior survival of transfused over endogenous red blood cells. A 16-year-old with sickle cell disease receiving chronic transfusion of modified intensity (goal to maintain hemoglobin S<50%) who developed symptomatic anemia with reticulocytopenia was later shown to have had transient aplastic crisis.

    Objectives: Anemia is associated with increased mortality in patients with acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of Hounsfield unit (HU) measurements on the single unenhanced trigger slice of pulmonary CT angiography scans for diagnosis of anemia. Material and Methods: 150 consecutive patients (median age 64 ± 16 years) with suspected PE underwent pulmonary CT angiography. Two radiologists, blinded to laboratory results, performed HU measurements in the single unenhanced trigger scan independently by region-based analysis (ROI). HU values from ascending and descending aorta and the calculated mean of both were correlated with serum hemoglobin levels. Inter- and intraobserver variability was determined for HU measurements, and ROC analysis was performed for diagnosis of anemia. Calculated linear models were used to assess formulas for estimation of hemoglobin levels from HU measurements. Results: HU measurements revealed high intra- and interrater reliability (ICC > 0.981 and ICC > 0.965, respectively). Calculated mean HU values showed a strong correlation with serum hemoglobin levels (r = 0.734), which allowed generation of different formulas for calculation of hemoglobin levels from HU measurements. ROC analyses confirmed a high sensitivity (80.4 for men; 91.3 for women) and specificity (84.0 for men; 84.9 for women) for diagnosing anemia. Conclusion: Diagnosis of anemia and quantification of hemoglobin levels upon a single unenhanced trigger scan of pulmonary CT angiography is feasible. We suggest disclosing the anemic state in the radiological report, independent of the presence of PE, since anemia carries increased risks of morbidity and mortality.

    Aplastic anemia (AA) is a disease characterized by pancytopenia and hypoplastic bone marrow caused by the decrease of hematopoietic stem cells. The pathogenesis of AA is complex and involves an abnormal hematopoietic microenvironment, hematopoietic stem cell/progenitor cell deficiencies and immunity disorders. Survival in severe aplastic anemia (SAA) has markedly improved in the past 4 decades because of advances in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, immunosuppressive and biologic drugs, and supportive care. Herein, we will update the main issues concern AA according to our literature review. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The objective of this study is to scrutinize the frequency of anemia in chronic psychiatric patients and the clinical and sociodemographic factors that could affect this frequency.Methods: All inpatients in our clinic who satisfied the study criteria and received treatment between April 2014 and April 2015 were included in this cross-sectional study. Sociodemographic data for 378 patients included in the study and hemoglobin (Hb and hematocrit values observed during their admission to the hospital were recorded in the forms. Male patients with an Hb level of <13 g/dL and nonpregnant female patients with an Hb level of <12 g/dL were considered as anemic.Findings: Axis 1 diagnoses demonstrated that 172 patients had depressive disorder, 51 patients had bipolar disorder, 54 patients had psychotic disorder, 33 patients had conversion disorder, 19 patients had obsessive-compulsive disorder, 25 patients had generalized anxiety disorder, and 24 patients had other psychiatric conditions. It was also determined that 25.4% of the patients suffered from anemia. Thirty-five percent of females and 10% of males were considered as anemic. The frequency of anemia was the highest among psychotic disorder patients (35%, followed by generalized anxiety disorder patients (32%, and obsessive-compulsive disorder patients (26%. Anemia was diagnosed in 22% of depressive disorder patients, 25% of bipolar disorder patients, and 24% of conversion disorder patients.Results: The prevalence of anemia among chronic psychiatry patients is more frequent than the general population

    Full Text Available Es frecuente observar el desarrollo de anemia durante la internación, especialmente en pacientes graves. Esto se ha relacionado a extracciones de laboratorio. Pocos estudios evaluaron su prevalencia y factores asociados en pacientes internados en sala general. El objetivo fue determinar la prevalencia, características y factores clínicos asociados a anemia intrahospitalaria y descenso de hemoglobina en pacientes internados. Se efectuó un estudio transversal, prospectivo, descriptivo. Se analizaron 192 internaciones consecutivas en sala general. Se determinó aquellas que presentaron un descenso del valor de hemoglobina = 2 g/dl y se analizaron factores de riesgo asociados. Presentaron anemia 139 pacientes (72.4%, 89 (46.4% al ingreso y 50 (26% durante la internación.
