Juvenile onset systemic autoimmune diseases

Paediatric age onset systemic autoimmune diseases are infrequent, complex entities that require a multi-disciplinary approach. The most frequent include juvenile onset systemic lupus erythematosus, mixed connective tissue disease, juvenile onset Sjögren’s syndrome, juvenile dermatomyositis, juvenile scleroderma, and paediatric age onset vasculitis, such as Kawasaki disease, IgA vasculitis (also known as Schönlein-Henoch purpura), polyarthritis nodosa and Takayasu disease.

Paludisme

Malaria is an infectious disease caused by the parasitic protozoan Plasmodium.

It is transmitted through the bite of mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles. The mosquito acts as a vector or transmitter of the disease. The mosquito bites an already infected person. The parasite reproduces and develops inside the mosquito. The mosquito subsequently bites another person who in turn becomes infected.

Infection caused by Escherichia coli

The Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria is one of the most common causes of human illness. It forms part of the digestive flora and is always present in faecal matter.

By little known mechanisms it episodically causes disease in humans, either due to mutations that make it resistant to our body’s control mechanisms, or because it is present in places it should not normally be, such as the urinary tract or in the blood itself.

Hereditary angioedema: recommendations

It is essential for patients to actively participate in the monitoring and treatment of their disease to increase their personal satisfaction and autonomy. Having reliable, verifiable information is also of great help in managing the disease.

Hereditary angioedema is such a rare disease that it is little-known even among healthcare workers. This means that in this case the patients themselves particularly need to know how to act in the event of an emergency, especially when they are not in their usual environment or are far away from their medical team.

Upset stomach in children

Not all upset stomachs are the same. There are two types: organic, with a clear cause, and functional or recurrent. This advice is focused on the former. The causes of upset stomach vary greatly. The most frequent cause is associated with gastroenteritis, constipation or indigestion. Often children express their physical discomfort (fever, sore throat, etc.) or emotional discomfort (stress situations above all) in the form of stomach pain. Other factors that pull the wool in front of our eyes are appendicitis, urinary infections, intussusception and a long list of diseases that cannot be overlooked, which have a significant impact on children because they make them feel ill.

Fever in children

Fever is the body’s response against an infection and is the most common sign of illness. It is considered a fever when the body’s temperature is greater than 38°C at the rectum or 37.5°C in the armpit. Between 37 and 38 degrees is known as low-grade fever. A sensation of cold, discomfort and loss of appetite may all accompany a fever, but children normally tolerate fever well.
