Featured Issue: Iranian Journal of Pediatrics Vol.23 No.2

Iranian Journal of Pediatrics has recently been updated on Bioline. 

This issue features "Re-Appraising the Role of Sonography in Pediatric Acute Abdominal Pain" by Lin & Lin. This article details a study examining how sonographs are used to evaluate abdominal pain in children less than eighteen years old, who underwent sonography examinations between December 2004 and June 2006. A total of 776 patients were assessed for this study, with 284 of the children suspected of having appendicitis. Out of those 284, 118 were diagnosed with appendicitis after sonography examinations. The results indicated that sonographs remain an effective instrument in diagnosing children with acute abdominal pain.

"Clinical and Genetic Features in Patients with Cystic Fibrosis in Southwestern Iran" by Farjadian et al. looks at the mutations of cystic fibrosis, possible links between the mutations, and the clinical presentation of cystic fibrosis in southwestern Iran. 45 patients with cystic fibrosis were examined, with twenty-nine common gene mutations found. The results of the study indicated that chronic cough, dehydration and heat exhaustion were among symptoms, and that only 40% of the patients had common mutations.
