Iranian Journal of Pediatrics has recently been updated on the blog. 

Today we are featuring vol.23 no.3 of the issue, which includes "Autoimmune Hepatitis in Children: Experiences in a Tertiary Center" by Dehghani et al. The study looks at children with autoimmune hepatitis, a necroinflammatory liver disease and the treatment they received. The study was carried out over a period of 9 years, from 2001 to 2010 as records of 87 children were examined. Jaundice was among the most common findings, with 70% of patients experiencing it. 28% of patients underwent liver transplants. 88% of patients confirmed a one-year survival rate, while 80% experienced a five-year survival rate.

This issue also includes "Shifting Epidemiology of Hepatitis A Infection and Vaccination Status of Children Aged 6 Months-12 Years: Time for Mass Vaccination" by Nalbantoglu et al. This study looks at the prevalence and age-related hepatitis A, and the epidemiological shift of hepatitis A in the Thrace region of Turkey. Children 6 months to 12 years of age with minor health problems were evaluated and their vaccination statuses were recorded.
