Two cases of bilateral neonatal testicular torsion are reported and combined with 6 previously reported ones. These infants with bilateral testicular torsion are compared with neonates with unilateral torsion. Both have similar signs and symptoms: (1) a swollen bluish-red firm scrotum at birth, and (2) no evidence of spontaneous pain. ...

In this country, neonatal circumcisions are usually performed without any consideration of the pain the newborn endures. A simple easy-to-learn technique of superficial dorsal penile nerve-block procedure was employed on 109 infants. This technique does not increase circumcision morbidity and ought to be employed before neonatal circumcision, so that they ...

Fifteen neonates with spina bifida were investigated prior to surgery for T and B lymphocytes subpopulations and mitogen responsiveness to PHA. Results were compared to similar studies in 30 normal healthy neonates. The mean percentage of T-lymphocyes in spina bifida patients was 44.6% compared to 48.9% in normal neonates. A ...

Neonates of some species of mammals absorb water-soluble macromolecules from the lumen of the gut to the circulation. This is a means for providing the neonate with passive immunological protection. The accepted model for absorption of macromolecules, particularly immunoglobulin G (IgG), has at least three phases: adherence of the macromolecule ...

A case of neonatal tetanus in an infant with myelomeningocele is described, and the possible action of tetanus toxin is discussed.

In two infants born to mothers with myotonic dystrophy, chest roentgenograms showed elevation of the right sides of the diaphragms. These findings aided in the diagnoses of the neonatal form of myotonic dystrophy and the diagnoses were confirmed at autopsy. Diaphragmatic elevation in neonatal myotonic dystrophy is important to differentiate ...

Two hundred questionnaires were completed anonymously by mothers to determine the nature of their attitudes and knowledge of neonatal circumcision. Neonatal circumcision had been performed on 95 percent of the sons. A wide variety of reasons were given for circumcising newborns; few were medically valid. Eighty-seven percent of mothers considered ...

The serious prognostic implications of familial dysautonomia (FD) for the affected individual and his family make early definitive diagnosis mandatory. Familial dysautonomia has rarely been diagnosed in the neonatal period in hitherto unaffected families. We describe here three such newborn patients to reinforce the limited data available on this subject. ...

The urinary elimination of etidocaine and several of its metabolites was investigated in neonates whose mothers had received one or more doses of etidocaine during labour. The urine collection period ranged among the neonates from 21.4 to 47.0 h post-partum. The total amounts of etidocaine and its metabolites recovered in ...

Circumcision is the only surgical procedure, excluding cord-clamping and cutting, which is routinely performed on normal, healthy newborn infants, usually during the first two or three days of life. Apparently no analgesic technique has been described nor suggested in association with neonatal circumcision. This is the first description of a ...

A female infant with neonatal myasthenia gravis remained weak for an excessively long period compared to the usual situation in this disease process. At 71 days of age, electrophysiological studies revealed evidence of a defect in neuromuscular transmission that improved with intravenous Tensilon therapy. Repeat study at 183 days of ...

Suppurative middle ear effusions (MEE) have been shown to occur commonly in neonates. In spite of this, otoscopy is not routinely performed on septic infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (ICU). This is clinically significant since unrecognized suppurative MEE may act as a focus for dissemination of bacteria into ...

Fluctuating ophthalmoplegia in the neonatal period is unusual. We report two infants, one with branched-chain keto-aminoaciduria, the other with nonketotic hyperglycinemia, who demonstrated varying degrees of ophthalmoplegia. In one, the abnormalities of extraocular motility best correlated with elevations of serum leucine. In the other case, increased CSF glycine was implicated. ...

The records of 5,882 live male births were reviewed to ascertain the incidence and nature of complications following neonatal circumcision. Approximately one half of the patients were circumcised with the Gomco and half with the Plastibell. The incidence of complications was 0.2%; most frequent were hemmorrhage, infection, and trauma, there ...

Neonates in incubators underwent umbilical aortography, excretory urography and suprapubic cysto-urethrography using a mobile X-ray machine in the Premature Baby Unit to define the cause of their oliguria. The techniques were easy to perform without endangering the infants by moving them. The radiological findings in the four neonates investigated contributed ...

A 42-day-old female infant had neonatal pyogenic arthritis and osteomyelitis due to an unusual combination of streptococcal organisms. Group B streptococci produced an osteolytic lesion in the proximal end of the humerus and suppurative arthritis of the corresponding shoulder. An enterococcus was responsible for the occurrence of arthritis and subluxation ...

The length-tension relationship and the effect of paired electrical stimulation were studied in right ventricular papillary muscles obtained from cats. The animals were divided into three age groups: neonatal kittens, less than 24 hr of age; infant kittens, 16--18 days of age; and adult cats. 2. The muscles were electrically ...

Hypercholesterolemic and normal neonates from hypercholesterolemic kindreds were studied for 6 to 30 months. Sixteen of 22 hypercholesterolemic neonates and eight of 11 normal neonates came from families with "monogenic" hyperlipoproteinemia. At 6 or 12 months of age, plasma cholesterol level was greater than 200 mg/100 ml in eight of ...

We studied the placental transfer of methadone, the relationship of neonatal plasma methadone concentrations to withdrawal symptomatology, and the relationship between maternal methadone dose and severity of neonatal withdrawal in 31 methadone-maintained mothers and their neonates. Methadone concentrations in maternal, cord and neonatal plasma were measured using a gas chromatographic ...

In a prospective study of 1,460 virtually consecutive neonates 14 (1%) were found to have bacteriuria, established by bladder puncture. Eleven were boys and three girls. Five of the infants with bacteriuria had symptoms suggestive of infection and were treated with antibiotics. The remaining nine were asymptomatic and remained so ...

A case of red-back spider (Latrodectus mactans hasselti) envenomation in a neonate is presented. The signs of envenomation in a neonate are discussed, together with the dose of antivenom necessary for the successful treatment of envenomation. In episodes of untractable crying in neonates, the possibility that the baby has been ...
