Abstract

Vitamin B12 deficiency in infants often produceshaematological and neurological deficits, includingmacrocytic anaemia ,neurodevelopmental delay orregression, irritability, weakness ,hypotonia ,ataxia, apathy, tremor, and seizures. The diagnosisof vitamin B12 deficiency can be difficult whenthe typical macrocytic anaemia is absent) Infantile vitamin B-12 deficiency with ineffectivehaematopoiesis and degeneration of nervous tissuehas been reported in breast fed infants of motherson strict vegetarian diets 2) ) Adults may toleratevitamin B-12 deficient diets for many yearswithout apparent symptoms due to theirendogenous stores. In contrast, infants have verylimited hepatic reserves of vitamin B-12 and somay develop symptoms of deficiency withinmonth's2) (. we report two cases in which they werediagnosed as cerebral palsy in early life. first casewas 9 month old female baby presented withpallor for last 3 months of age, floppiness ,regressof acquired millstone ,exclusive breast feed for avegan mother ,diagnosed as megaloblastic anemiasecond case was 16 months old male babypresented with apathiness , he was exclusivelybreast feed till this age with minimumcomplementary food.KEY WORDS : megloblstic anemia ,breast feed

Abstract

ABSTRACT:BACKGROUND:Diabetes Mellitus is the most common endocrine-metabolic disease in children. Diabetic patients with hyperlipidemia frequently develop atherosclerosis which is an important cause of morbidity and mortality.OBJECTIVE:The aim of this study was to evaluate serum lipids total serum cholesterol, total serum triglyceride (TGs), High density lipoprotein (HDL-C), Low density lipoprotein (LDL-C) and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL-C) in children with type-1 diabetes mellitus in comparison with controls, and to determine the relationship of lipid profile with gender, body mass index (BMI) and duration of diabetes among patients.METHODS:In this case-control study, the lipid profiles of 52 patients aged 6-18 years (27 males 25 females) with established type 1 diabetes were compared with those of 52 healthy controls of the same age and gender from the first of December 2007 to the 29th of February 2008.RESULTS:The lipid profiles of patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus showed the following values, the mean total serum cholesterol 175 ± 55 mg/dl, total serum TGs 140 ± 135 mg/dl, HDL-C 59 ± 19 mg/dl, LDL-C 93 ± 51 mg/dl and that of VLDL-C 23 ± 13 mg/dl, whereas for the controls they were 136 ± 34 mg/dl, 74 ± 25 mg/dl, 53 ± 15 mg/dl, 68 ± 30 mg/dl and 15 ± 5 mg/dl respectively.CONCLUSION:The abnormalities in lipid profile regarding total serum cholesterol, total serum TGs, LDL-C and VLDL-C showed that they were significantly higher in diabetic patients than in control group, while HDL-C although it was higher among diabetic patients, but it was not statistically significant. Total serum TGs was significantly increased with the duration of diabetes.
