The aim of the
Journal of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine is to strengthen research and education of the neonatal community on the optimal physical, mental and social health and well-being of infants through high quality publications on neonatal-perinatal medicine and to provide examples of best practices in order to improve the quality, safety and effectiveness of infants’ healthcare worldwide.
The vision for the journal is to be ‘The Reference Journal’ in the field of neonatology.
Abstract: Severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is primarily transmitted via respiratory droplet or aerosol route. However, there is mounting evidence for intrauterine transmission. We report on a late preterm infant with suspected intrauterine acquisition of SARS-CoV-2 who experienced birth depression, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, multisystem organ involvement, and late onset COVID-19 pneumonia [22 ].
Abstract: Emphysematous gastritis is a rare and life-threatening condition caused by gastric inflammation and intramural gas formation, most often diagnosed through radiological evidence of a radiolucent shadow in the stomach wall in the clinical scenario of severe sickness. We report a case of emphysematous gastritis secondary to early-onset neonatal sepsis in a newborn which, to the best of our knowledge, has not otherwise been reported. Is it very rare or do we just miss it?
Abstract: There are multiple manifestations in the neonatal period for infants born to mothers with systematic lupus erythematosus (SLE), ranging from cardiac, hematologic and dermatologic abnormalities. Cardiac complications may arise in utero in the form of heart block with a resulting increase in fetal mortality. The fetal conduction system is suspected to be affected by transplacental maternal antibodies, however additional environmental and fetal factors appear to play a role. We describe a rare case of a dichorionic-diamniotic twin pregnancy in which only one twin developed a complete heart block progressing to hydrops fetalis and fetal demise.
Abstract: Classic metaphyseal lesions (CML) or bucket handle fractures are usually associated with child abuse or non-accidental injury. The most common sites affected are the distal femur, proximal and distal tibia, and proximal humerus. Few case reports documented its association with difficult extraction at delivery in term large for gestational age (LGA) neonates. We present a case of CML in an extremely preterm neonate following abnormal presentation and difficult cesarean delivery. Management of CML is usually conservative, and fractures heal without any deformities. Thorough history taking is essential in the diagnosis of CML.
