Mystery #hepatitis cases in #kids linked to unexpected viral suspect

Two preliminary studies finding #adeno-associated viruses in pediatric hepatitis cases suggest a child's genetic background and other virusesall act in concert
Researchers found high adeno-associated virus 2 (AAV2) levels in the blood or liver cells in 24 of 25 children with unexplained hepatitis.

In a group of kids without this condition, almost none had AAV2, even those with #adenovirus.
The young #hepatitis patients were also much likelier to have a #genetic variant that may make their immune systems overreact to viruses.

#OmicronI #Paediatric infections and admissions 1/n

What do we know from South Africa
-7% of infected kids needed hospitalisation
-18% of all hospital admissions were paediatric
-Paediatric admissions peaked prior to adult admissions
- 0 to 4 group needed most admissions
2/n South Africa (Contd)
- Short admission (mean of 3.2 days)
- 92% needed only ward care (NO HDU/ICU)
-25% needed some oxygen
- 6% needed ventilator care
Overall: early sharp increase in admissions especially 0-4 yo, but most needed short hospital stay and did well.
3/n UK data (so far)
- Positivity rate highest in Preschoolers (<6Y)
- 7% of <6Y infected
- <4 yo more admissions than any other paediatric age group (X3 other children)
- Slight increase in paediatric admissions compared to earlier wave (for every 100 now 107)

1) Welcome to all our new followers 🤗
#LongCovidKids runs on goodwill and support, so thank you for being here. #gratitude
What does LCK do though? If you are new, you might be wondering, so we thought we would a tweet thread might help!

3) We realised #longcovidkids was different to #longcovid so we set up the #LongCovidKidsStudy with @PeopleWithApp to learn more & support researchers & Drs.
Download the app to get involved & select Long Covid Kids to be involved.…

🎙Great to have a chat about medications and prescribing in children with @Sumiah4444

For those of you in #Paediatric training check out @RCPCHtweets #Progress domain 7…

Here are few more of the resources we mention in the podcast.

This is KidzMed, an award winning programme developed for members of the multidisciplinary team to teach children and young people how to swallow pills from @GreatNorthCH

Even quite young children can do it!…

The manual for prescribing is @BNfc which is a fantastic resource

Initial chapters describe key prescribing rules

The Medicines Guidance section includes prescribing in certain situations and body surface area tables if your med is prescribed by SA
