PEDIATRIC INFECTIOUS DISEASES
What these results really tell us is not how little parents know about drug-resistant infections, but how much more we, as health care providers, should be doing to help parents understand them,
The study, published in the January issue of the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, found that out of 67 people who received the varicella zoster vaccine within five days of exposure to chickenpox, only 22 got sick. That's about 62 percent fewer than would be expected to become ill with the disease. womenshealth.gov

How is the diagnosis of infectious diseases performed?
The diagnosis of infectious diseases is based on a complete clinical history with the search for epidemiological risk factors and suggestive signs in the examination, on complementary general and imaging tests that orient, localize and allow establishing a diagnosis of suspicion and on tests ...
When to see a pediatric infectologist?
An infectologist should be consulted in the presence of a febrile syndrome or a usual infectious condition or in those pathologies that are more complex, such as viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV) and dengue fever, among others.
What does an infectologist detect?
Infectious Diseases is the specialty of Internal Medicine that deals with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases caused by microscopic organisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or others that penetrate the body's natural defensive barriers, multiplying and creating symptoms and ...
8 antibiotic therapy in pediatrics
The incubation period of SARS-CoV-2 varies from 1-12.5 days (average 5-6 days) and is transmitted primarily by droplet and close contact, with aerosol transmission in the community setting being less clear than within medical units. Spread of the virus occurs through person-to-person contact by droplet expulsion when talking, coughing or sneezing.5 Close contact has been defined as contact with an infected person at a distance of less than 1.5 meters for a cumulative total of at least 15 minutes in a 24-hour period.6,7 Transmission of the virus from asymptomatic persons has also been documented, calling this period presymptomatic, and it has been reported that up to 50% of infections occur through asymptomatic persons.8,9
In the case of newborns (NB), possible perinatal transmission has been documented and has been controversial. A study in China showed maternal viremia in 1%. Detection of SARS-CoV-2 by PCR in nasopharyngeal exudate has been reported in newborns one or two days old, as well as elevated IgM levels; however, there is a possibility of false positives, as well as cross-reactions with other perinatally acquired infectious agents. The most frequent obstetric complication identified to date is preterm birth with associated neonatal complications.20,21

Partiendo de la hipótesis de que los laboratorios jugaron un papel importante en la conversión de la pediatría en una disciplina autónoma, este artículo estudia la influencia de los viajes científicos en la apropiación de nuevas metodologías por parte de los pediatras y puericultores españoles en el primer tercio del siglo XX. Para ello, analiza los premios de viaje concedidos por la Junta para Ampliación de Estudios e Investigaciones Científicas. Describe la geografía científica creada por el programa y profundiza en el papel de los mentores -especialmente Gustavo Pittaluga (1876-1956)- en este proceso. Además de un estudio prosopográfico del grupo, presenta tres casos que demuestran la importancia del programa en el contacto de la pediatría con la bacteriología, la anatomía patológica y la bioquímica.
El primer tercio del siglo XX resultó definitivo para la concreción de la autonomía de la pediatría como disciplina (Seidler, 1974SEIDLER, Eduard. El desarrollo de la pediatría moderna. En: Laín Entralgo, Pedro (ed.). Historia universal de la medicina. t. 6. Positivismo. Madrid: Salvat. p.203-215. 1974.). Los cambios de la ciencia médica en general y del modelo asistencial - fundamentalmente una fuerte tecnologización, una aceleración de la especialización y la consolidación de un modelo hospitalocéntrico - obligaron a la especialidad a tomar unos derroteros concretos para adaptarse a los nuevos espacios y crear una identidad propia.
