  • Dysmyelogenic leukodystrophy-megalobare

    Dysmyelogenic leukodystrophy-megalobare or Alexander disease is an extremely rare, usually progressive and fatal, neurological disorder. Initially, it was detected most often during infancy or early childhood. Alexander disease has historically been included among the leukodystrophies–diseases of the white matter of the brain. These diseases affect the fatty material (myelin) that forms an insulating sheath around  Read More

  • Hartnup syndrome

    Risk factors of Hartnup disease: 1. Hartnup disease is caused by mutations in the SLC6A19 gene. These mutations are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. 2. Most genetic diseases are determined by the status of the two copies of a gene, one received from the father and one from the mother. 3. Recessive genetic disorders occur when an individual inherits two copies of an abnormal gene for the same  Read More

  • Helicobacter pylori

    Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) facts Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacterium that causes chronic inflammation in the stomach and is a common cause of ulcers worldwide H. pylori causes chronic inflammation (gastritis) by invading the lining of the stomach and producing a cytotoxin termed Vacuolating cytotoxin A (Vac-A); these functions can lead to ulcer formation.

    Respiratory disorder in babies with the efficient intake of air in lungs but defected outlet causes inflation in lung lobes, is Lobar Tension. It gives birth to Lobar Tension Emphysema in Infancy. Diagnosis: Earlier detection or symptoms of the condition increasing with age are the signals to get the treatments to start at the earliest. Few such methods of detecting the disease are as fol  Read More

  • Localized infantile mastocytosis

    Mast cells pathologically grow in cutaneous tissue and extracutaneous organs such as bone marrow, liver, spleen, and lymph nodes in various forms of the condition known as localized infantile mastocytosis. 1. Pediatric-onset mastocytosis and adult-onset mastocytosis are the two main age-related patterns in which the disease manifests, and they may differ in terms of clinical symptoms and how the disease develops.  Read More

  • Moravcsik-marinesco-sjogren syndrome

    An autoimmune disorder called moravcsik-marinesco-sjogren syndrome makes your immune system malfunction and attack healthy cells instead of foreign bacteria or viruses. Your white blood cells target the glands in charge of producing moisture instead of protecting you from pathogens as they would normally do. When that occurs, they are unable to produce saliva or tears, which causes your mouth, eyes, and other body parts to dry  Read More

  • Norrie syndrome

    Norrie syndrome is an intrinsically genetic condition of eyesight, but it may also occur by unfortunate chance. It results in absolute blindness (only males) shortly after birth, if not instantly at birth. Immature retina cells accumulate at the back of the eyes with further unusual development of the retina, defected sensory cells that help in detecting color and light. It affects the vascular maturity of the ret  Read More

  • Pigmented dermatosis, siemens-bloch type

    Pigmented Dermatosis, Siemens-bloch type, otherwise also termed as Incontinentia Pigmenti (PI) is a rare X-linked dominant genodermatosis condition. It’s more common in males and normally considered lethal pre-birth. Significant loss of hair of the scalp and body (alopecia), dental abnormalities (smaller than usual teeth, lesser teeth), eye issues that can cause vision loss, and linted/pinted fingernails as well as toena  Read More

  • Russell-silver dwarfism

    Russel-silver dwarfism, also known as Russel-silver syndrome, is a developmental disease. As the name suggests, a person born with the disease grows dwarf, with an average height in adulthood being 3 feet. The baby is born with macrocephaly and an underdeveloped body by size. Other clinical features include unusually prominent forehead (frontal bossing), progressive limb length discrepancy, growth failure, and feeding difficul  Read More

  • Sandhoff disease

    Sandhoff disease is an exceedingly rare lysosomal storage condition. It induces nerve cell damage (neurodegeneration). This causes issues with thinking and movement. Sandhoff illness is caused by faulty HEXB gene mutations. Negative alterations in this gene result in lower levels of two enzymes in the cell's recycling centers (lysosomes). Certain fats (lipids) accumulate in enormous levels in nerve cells in the absence of thes  Read More

  • Thrush and other yeast infections in children

    Thrush and other yeast infections in children can be treated with medicated suppositories and prevented at the earliest by following certain precautions. 1. Antifungal drugs: Thrush is easily treated with an antifungal medicine such as nystatin (Mycostatin®), fluconazole (Diflucan®), or itraconazole (Sporanox®). They are available as a syrup or a pill. The antibiotic nystatin is often prescribed for children  Read More
