OBJECTIVES To define the prevalence of MRI subclinical synovitis in a large cohort of JIA patients in clinical remission and to evaluate its predictive value in terms of disease flare and joint deterioration. METHODS Ninety patients with clinically inactive JIA who underwent a contrast-enhanced (CE) MRI of a previously affected joint were retrospectively included. Each joint was evaluated for synovitis, tenosynovitis and bone marrow oedema (BMO). Baseline and follow-up radiographs were assessed ...

Until the end of the last century there were no drugs approved for the treatment of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). This situation was revolutionized in the past 20 years thanks to 3 factors: the introduction in the USA and in Europe of paediatric legislations(1, 2), the availability of biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (b-DMARDs), and the existence of not-for-profit organizations with the mission to foster, facilitate and co-ordinate the development, conduct, analysis, and re...

OBJECTIVE Because asthma is a disease that changes over time, the Italian Society of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology launched a nationwide study on asthma control (the ControL'Asma study). The intent was to test the hypothesis that children with asthma could present a different pattern compared to adolescents. In the study, we compared children with adolescents in a real-world setting by analyzing the asthma control grade and other asthma-related parameters. METHODS This cross-sectional real-wo...

Abstract Background Neonates and infants are susceptible to hypoxaemia in the perioperative period. The aim of this study was to analyse interventions related to anaesthesia tracheal intubations in this European cohort and identify their clinical consequences. Methods We performed a secondary analysis of tracheal intubations of the European multicentre observational trial (NEonate and Children audiT of Anaesthesia pRactice IN Europe [NECTARINE]) in neonates and small infants with difficult trach...

Abstract Background Neonates and infants requiring anaesthesia are at risk of physiological instability and complications, but triggers for peri-anaesthetic interventions and associations with subsequent outcome are unknown. Methods This prospective, observational study recruited patients up to 60 weeks' postmenstrual age undergoing anaesthesia for surgical or diagnostic procedures from 165 centres in 31 European countries between March 2016 and January 2017. The primary aim was to identify thre...

OBJECTIVE To develop and test shortened versions of the Manual Muscle Test-8 (MMT-8) in juvenile dermatomyositis ( JDM). METHODS Construction of reduced tools was based on a retrospective analysis of individual scores of MMT-8 muscle groups in 3 multinational datasets. The 4 and 6 most frequently impaired muscle groups were included in MMT-4 and MMT-6, respectively. Metrologic properties of reduced tools were assessed by evaluating construct validity, internal consistency, discriminant ability, ...

Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common infection in pediatric-age patients. Acute pyelonephritis (PNA) represents a worrying situation in pediatric patients due to the risk of sepsis and long-term cicatricial consequences. The purpose of this retrospective study is to evaluate the diagnostic role of DW-MRI in relation to clinical data, to understand if there are any clinical parameters useful in identifying which patients should undergo it. Methods: According to inclusion a...

OBJECTIVES To search for predictors of polyarticular extension in children with oligoarticular-onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and to develop a prediction model for an extended course. METHODS The clinical charts of consecutive patients with oligoarticular-onset JIA and ≥2 years of disease duration were reviewed. Predictor variables included demographic data, number and type of affected joints, presence of iridocyclitis, laboratory tests including antinuclear antibodies, and therapeuti...
