Childhood obesity in the Middle East: a review
Mirmiran, P.; Sherafat Kazemzadeh, R.; Jalali Farahani, S.; Azizi, F. ( 2010 )

Accurate and comprehensive data on the extent of the problem of childhood obesity is lacking in countries of the Middle East. This review, based on a Medline search, summarizes the prevalence of obesity among children and adolescents in the region during 1990-2007. The highest rates of obesity and overweight were reported from Bahrain and the lowest from the Islamic Republic of Iran. Studies from Saudi Arabia, Islamic Republic of Iran and Kuwait showed an upwards trend in childhood obesity compared with a decade ago. Lack of uniformity in reference standards and reporting systems renders comparisons difficult. Nevertheless, the high prevalence of childhood obesity in the Middle East should stimulate policy-makers in the region to set up effective national and regional surveillance systems

Childhood pneumonia in developing countries
Cohen, Adam L; Klugman, Keith P; Izadnegahdar, Rasa; Qazi, Shamim A ( 2013-06-18 )

Pneumonia is a widespread and common infectious lung disease that causes inflammation, which can lead to reduced oxygenation, shortness of breath, and death. An estimated nearly 1.2 million children younger than 5 years died in 2011 from pneumonia. Most of these deaths occured in developing countries where access to care is limited and interventions that have improved care in developed countries are scarce. Despite substantial increases in our understanding of the clinical syndrome of pneumonia and its aetiologies, its accurate diagnosis is challenging when clinical indicators are relied on, and improves only modestly with addition of laboratory, microbiological, or radiographical tests. Prevention programmes and treatment guidelines have led to impressive reductions in disease, but children remain at risk of misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment. Research to address challenges in the aetiological diagnosis of pneumonia and widespread implementation of treatment interventions beyond vaccines and antibiotics are necessary to mitigate the burden of pneumonia and improve child survival.

Childhood stunting: a global perspective
Branca, Francesco; de Onis, Mercedes ( 2016-05-01 )

Childhood stunting is the best overall indicator of children's well-being and an accurate reflection of social inequalities. Stunting is the most prevalent form of child malnutrition with an estimated 161 million children worldwide in 2013 falling below -2 SD from the length-for-age/height-for-age World Health Organization Child Growth Standards median. Many more millions suffer from some degree of growth faltering as the entire length-for-age/height-for-age z-score distribution is shifted to the left indicating that all children, and not only those falling below a specific cutoff, are affected. Despite global consensus on how to define and measure it, stunting often goes unrecognized in communities where short stature is the norm as linear growth is not routinely assessed in primary health care settings and it is difficult to visually recognize it. Growth faltering often begins in utero and continues for at least the first 2 years of post-natal life. Linear growth failure serves as a marker of multiple pathological disorders associated with increased morbidity and mortality, loss of physical growth potential, reduced neurodevelopmental and cognitive function and an elevated risk of chronic disease in adulthood. The severe irreversible physical and neurocognitive damage that accompanies stunted growth poses a major threat to human development. Increased awareness of stunting's magnitude and devastating consequences has resulted in its being identified as a major global health priority and the focus of international attention at the highest levels with global targets set for 2025 and beyond. The challenge is to prevent linear growth failure while keeping child overweight and obesity at bay.

Childhood visceral leishmaniasis complicated by bacterial infections
Kadivar, M.R. ( 2000 )

Bacterial superinfection is one of the major complications leading to death in patients with visceral leishmaniasis. We studied the frequency and type of bacterial infection in 54 patients admitted to hospital with visceral leishmaniasis. The patients were children who ranged in age from 3 1/2 months to 7 years. Bacterial infections were found in 22 [41%] of the patients. Bacteria were isolated in patients with pneumonia, septicaemia, otitis media, urinary tract infections and skin infections. Enterobacteriaceae were the most common bacterial agents isolated. In infants with visceral leishmaniasis, fatal bacterial infections can be accompanied by nonspecific signs and symptoms. Thus, it is important to initiate antibiotic treatment early
