  1. Visceral leishmaniasis associated hemophagocytic syndrome in patients with chronic granulomatous disease.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):753 (2009) PMID 19633526

    Visceral leishmaniasis is a severe form of infection caused by a parasite endemic along the Mediterranean coast. Complications such as infection-associated hemophagocytic syndrome can occur despite correct therapy. We report visceral leishmaniasis-associated infection-associated hemophagocytic s...
  2. Comparison of the cost of hospitalization for respiratory syncytial virus disease versus palivizumab prophylaxis in Canadian Inuit infants.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):702 (2009) PMID 19461555

    The objectives were to compare actual respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) hospitalization rates and costs in a cohort of Inuit infants to hypothetical palivizumab prophylaxis strategies for infants of all gestational ages in the Eastern Canadian Arctic. Incidence and costs of RSV hospitalization w...
  3. Renal tuberculosis in a thirteen-month-old female infant.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):757 (2009) PMID 19633528

  4. Interferon-gamma release assays for the diagnosis of tuberculosis.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):758 (2009) PMID 19633530

  5. Ileocecal histoplasmosis simulating Crohn disease in a patient with hyperimmunoglobulin E syndrome.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):744 (2009) PMID 19633521

    We describe a 14-year-old girl with hyperimmunoglobulin E (Job) syndrome who presented with fatigue, abdominal pain, fever, and weight loss. Endoscopic examination of the terminal ileum revealed ulceration, edema, and erythema. Histopathologic findings of the terminal ileum demonstrated intracel...
  6. The likelihood of an indeterminate test result from a whole-blood interferon-gamma release assay for the diagnosis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in children correlates with age and immune status.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):669 (2009) PMID 19633512

    Interferon-gamma release assays for the diagnosis of infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis have been increasingly used in recent years and are endorsed by national guidelines, but experience regarding their use in children is still limited. We retrospectively evaluated the routine use of the...
  7. Nasopharyngeal carriage of Streptococcus pneumoniae in Navajo and White Mountain Apache children before the introduction of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):711 (2009) PMID 19593248

    Infants and children are frequently colonized with pneumococcus. Recent nasopharyngeal acquisition of pneumococcus is thought to precede disease episodes. The increased risk of pneumococcal disease among Navajo and White Mountain Apache populations has been documented. Little is known about the ...
  8. An outbreak of varicella in elementary school children with two-dose varicella vaccine recipients--Arkansas, 2006.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):678 (2009) PMID 19593254

    In June 2006, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) expanded its June 2005 recommendation for a second dose of varicella vaccine during outbreaks to a recommendation for routine school entry second dose varicella vaccination. In October 2006, the Arkansas Department of Health w...
  9. Invasive fungal infections in children.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):734 (2009) PMID 19633517

  10. Association of Staphylococcus aureus colonization in parturient mothers and their babies.

    Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 28(8):742 (2009) PMID 19633520

    We recruited a total of 499 mothers and their 501 newborn babies to investigate whether infants acquire Staphylococcus aureus from their mothers. Of the 22 mother-baby paired S. aureus isolates, 11 (50%) paired isolates were unrelated, 1 pair related, and 10 pairs (45%) indistinguishable. Newbor...
