Background: COVID-19, a disease caused by the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, spread worldwide, and Bergamo was one of the most affected areas in Europe. Following the first outbreak, more than half of the population of the Bergamo province had been infected. We aimed to describe the patients admitted to our unit shortly after the first outbreak. Methods: we retrospectively reviewed the notes of all paediatric patients diagnosed with COVID-19. We enrolled patients with positive swabs or serology and...

Kawasaki disease (KD), although rare (affects about 15 children out of 100,000/year) and self-limiting, it is the second most frequent cause of pediatric acquired heart disease in Western countries The classic KD is diagnosed by fever and at least 4 clinical signs between conjunctivitis, mucositis, polymorphic rash, erythema and edema of hands and feet or lymphadenopathy;if clinical signs are less than 4 the incomplete KD can be diagnosed together with specific laboratory criteria Since March 20...

Summary Background The Bergamo province, which is extensively affected by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) epidemic, is a natural observatory of virus manifestations in the general population. In the past month we recorded an outbreak of Kawasaki disease; we aimed to evaluate incidence and features of patients with Kawasaki-like disease diagnosed during the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic. Methods All patients diagnosed with a Kawasaki-like disease at our centre in the past 5...

Chagas disease (CD) is an uncommon disease in Europe. Its epidemiology has changed because of mass migration from Latin America to Europe. Herein we describe a congenital case of CD in a Bolivian newborn in Bergamo, the main city of residence for the Bolivian community in Italy. At delivery, serological analyses evidenced IgG antibodies against Trypanosoma cruzi both in the child and mother, as expected. Hemoscopic analyses on peripheral blood were repeatedly negative during the first months of ...
This paper evaluates the capability of MicroSeq 500 instrument to improve the diagnosis of Mycobacterium genavense The strain was isolated from a two year old child admitted to our hospital for hepatosplenomegaly and massive abdominal lymphadenopathies. DNA was extracted from a lymph node and examined by amplifying 500 bp at the 5' end of 16S rRNA gene using MicroSeq 500 16S rDNA Bacterial Identification PCR kit. Sequencing reactions were performed with MicroSeq 500 16S rDNA Bacterial Identifica...
