OBJECTIVES: Crohn disease (CD) can affect patient's quality of life (QOL) with physical, social, and psychological impacts. This study aimed to investigate the QOL of children with CD and its relationship with patient and disease characteristics. METHODS: Children ages from 10 to 17 years with diagnosed CD for more than 6 months were eligible to this cross-sectional study conducted in 35 French pediatric centers. QOL was assessed by the IMPACT-III questionnaire. Patient and disease characteristics were collected. RESULTS: A total of 218 children (42% of girls) were included at a median age of 14 years (interquartile range [IQR]: 13--16). Median duration of CD was 3.2 years (IQR: 1.7-5.1) and 63% of children were in clinical remission assessed by wPCDAI. Total IMPACT-III score was 62.8 (±11.0). The lowest score was in "emotional functioning" subdomain (mean: 42.8 ±â€Š11.2). Clinical remission was the main independent factor associated with QOL of children with CD (5.74 points higher compared with those "with active disease", 95% confidence interval [CI] 2.77--8.70, P < 0.001). Age of patient at the evaluation was found negatively correlated with QOL (-0.76 per year, 95% CI: -1.47 to -0.06, P = 0.009). Presence of psychological disorders was associated with a lower QOL (-9.6 points lower to those without, 95% CI: -13.34 to -5.86, P < 0.0001). Total IMPACT-III and its subdomains scores were not related to sex, disease duration, or treatments. CONCLUSIONS: These results not only confirm that clinical remission is a major issue for the QOL of patients, but also highlights the importance of psychological care.

BACKGROUND: Myxoma resistance protein 1 (MxA) is induced during viral infections. MxA testing could be helpful to differentiate between viral and bacterial infections. METHODS: A prospective multicenter cohort study was performed in pediatric emergency departments. MxA blood values were measured in children with confirmed viral or bacterial infections, uninfected controls, and infections of unknown origin. First patients were used to determine MxA threshold for viral infection. The diagnostic performance of MxA was determined by using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis. Sensitivities (Se), specificities (Sp), and positive and negative likelihood ratios (LR+, LR-) were calculated. RESULTS: The study included 553 children; 44 uninfected controls and 77 confirmed viral infections (mainly respiratory syncytial virus and rotavirus) were used to determine an MxA threshold at 200 ng/mL. In the 193 other patients with confirmed infections and uninfected controls (validation group), MxA was significantly higher in patients with viral than in those with bacterial infections and uninfected controls (P < .0001). The area under the ROC curve (AUC) were 0.98, with 96.4% Se and 85.4% Sp, for differentiating uninfected from virus-infected patients and 0.89, with 96.4% Se and 66.7% Sp, for differentiating bacterial and viral infections. MxA levels were significantly higher in patients with clinically diagnosed viral versus clinically diagnosed bacterial infections (P < .001). Some patients with Streptococcus pneumonia infections had high MxA levels. Additional studies are required to elucidate whether this was due to undiagnosed viral coinfections. CONCLUSIONS: MxA is viral infection marker in children, at least with RSV and rotavirus. MxA could improve the management of children with signs of infection.

PURPOSE: Mowat-Wilson syndrome (MWS) is a developmental disorder presenting with mental retardation, delayed motor development, and a wide spectrum of clinical features. Hirschsprung's disease (HD) is associated in almost 50% of cases. This report aims to analyze the course of HD and to evaluate the clinical outcomes of these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1997 and 2007, 110 patients presenting with HD were diagnosed and managed in our institution. Five of them presented the association of HD and MWS. Their records were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS: All of the 5 patients have a genetic disorder specific of MWS (nonsense mutation or deletion on SIP1 gene, locus 2q22). Two patients underwent transanal endorectal pull-through procedure for classic rectosigmoid HD. Three patients were operated on for total colonic aganglionosis using Duhamel procedure. The median follow-up was 4 (range, 0.3-7) years. Only one patient is doing well (rectosigmoid HD). Two patients have a stoma diversion for severe motility disorders. Of the 3 total colonic aganglionosis, one still has repeated episodes of obstruction requiring total parenteral nutrition (TPN). The 2 others still have repeated episodes of enterocolitis. All patients required a prolonged TPN (32.5 months in average). CONCLUSION: Hirschsprung's disease associated with MWS is a severe condition. Even in case of short segment HD, patients can present motility disorder requiring a prolonged TPN. Physician and surgeon should be aware about the evolution of this rare condition.
