Objective: In this study we aimed to assess the aggression and trait anger-anger expression levels in parents of children with attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and to investigate the relationship between symp-toms of ADHD/oppositional defiant disorder and aggression and anger levels of parents. Methods: The study sam-ple consisted parents of 58 children diagnosed with ADHD between 6-14 ages. The healthy control group consisted of 54 healthy children's parents. Both ADHD and healthy group were assessed with Sociodemographic Data Form, Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire and Trait Anger Expression Inventory. Symptoms of ADHD in children were evaluated with the DSM-IV Based Behavior Disorders Screening and Rating Scale. Results: We found that trait anger level of mothers was higher in ADHD group than the control group. Anger control scores of ADHD parents was lower than the control group. Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire total aggression score and hostility sub- scale score was found to be higher In ADHD group than healthy control group. Additionally, attention deficit and oppositional defiant symptom levels of ADHD children were in relation with hostility level of parents and trait anger level of mothers. Conclusion: In our study trait anger and total aggression levels of mothers were found to be higher in ADHD group than healthy control group. Anger control levels of parents of ADHD group were lower than the control group. Parents of children with ADHD should be aware of their emotion and behavior related to anger and aggression during the treatment of child. © 2016, Cukurova University, Faculty of Medicine.

Introduction: This study aims to adapt the Seizure Self-Efficacy Scale for Children (SSES-C) into Turkish and then assess its validity and reliability in children with epilepsy. Methods: The study sample consisted of 166 children (aged 9-17 years) with epilepsy who attended of Akdeniz University Hospital, Antalya Training and Research Hospital, and Bursa Dortcelik Children’s Hospital Pediatric Neurology Clinics between July 2012 and March 2013. All research data were collected by a researcher in face-to-face interviews using Child Information Form, Seizure Self-Efficacy Scale for Children and Children’s Depression Scale. The Seizure Self-Efficacy Scale for Children is a 15-item, 5-point Likert scale designed by Caplin et al. (2002). Results: The linguistic adaptation and validation of the scale was conducted by seven experts. To evaluate the content validity of the scale, we elicited judgments from a panel of 10 content experts. The expert judgments showed that the correlation between the items on the scale was fairly good (Kendall’s W=0.411, p<0.001, ki-kare: 57.495). Load factor of 40% and a large factor analysis included analysis of substances and two factors accounting for 49.67% of the total variance explained. We calculated Cronbach’s alpha coefficient for the internal consistency and the full-scale score showed good internal consistency (alpha 0.89). Within the context of reliability studies, it was found correlations varying between 0,98-0,74 for the two sub-factors of the scale. Test/retest correlation coefficients were significant (p<0,01) and high (r=0.99). In parallel forms reliability, the correlations between the Seizure Self-Efficacy Scale for Children and Children’s Depression Rating Scale were found to be negative, moderate and statistically significant (r=-0.58, p<0.001). Conclusion: The measurements conducted on the Turkish version of the Seizure Self-Efficacy Scale for Children showed that it is consistent with the original scale, valid and reliable for Turkish society. © 2015 by Turkish Association of Neuropsychiatry.

Jka and Jkb antibodies (Kidd blood group system) can cause acute and delayed type transfusion reactions as well as hemolytic disease of newborn. Jka and Jkb antibodies are seen after events like blood transfusions, pregnancy, abortion and curettage. Hemolytic disease of newborn related to Kidd-Jkb incompatibility is rare and mostly has a good prognosis. The patient was consulted to our department because of 20 hours of jaundice after birth. He was treated with intensive phototherapy due to the high level of total-value bilirubin (17,6 mg/dl). Mother and patient were both B Rh (+). After direct coombs IgG +++ and C3d ++ values, further investigations were performed and mother had indirect coombs ++ and kidd antigen+. So, the newborn was diagnosed with hemolytic disease of newborn due to kidd incompatibility and was discharged on the fourth day of the treatment without sequel. In the literature serious cases are mentioned, mortality and disabilities are also seen. It is appropriate that pediatricians investigate the subgroup incompatibilities of newborns with hemolytic diseases without ABO and Rh incompatibility in early period, or those of newborns which are having a long respond concerning medical treatment. © Güncel Pediatri Dergisi, Galenos Yayınevi tarafından basılmıştır.

Results: The mean age of the patients was 48.7±12.3 (24-81) years. In Group 1, 16 patients (70%) had been operated on at the L4-L5 level, and in Group 2, 10 patients (44%) had been operated on at the L4-L5 level. There was a statistically significant improvement in Oswestry scale scores in Group 1 and Group 2 (p<0.05). There was a statistically significant improvement in neuropathic pain scale scores in Group 1 (p<0.05). However, no significant differences were found in neuropathic pain scale scores in Group 2 (p>0.05).Conclusion: Gabapentin treatment was found to be effective, especially for functional capacity and pain, in failed back syndrome patients.Objective: Failed back syndrome is a common clinical syndrome that is seen after lumbar disc herniation operations. In this study, we planned to investigate the effects of gabapentin in the treatment of failed back syndrome.Material and Methods: The study included 47 patients who had been operated on because of LDH. They were divided into two groups. Group 1 (n=24) had been treated with gabapentin (300 mgr-3000 mgr/daily) and a lumbar exercise program, and Group 2 (n=23) received only the home exercise program. Patients were assessed by means of range of motion, Schober test, straight leg test, and pain and functional capacity. Pain was evaluated by visual analog scale and neuropathic pain scale. Functional capacity was assessed by Oswestry scale. Assessments were done before and after first and third month of the therapy. © 2014 by Turkish Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Objective: In this retrospective case-control study, it was aimed to determine risk factors and mortality rates associated with extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) production in bloodstream infections due to ESBL-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, and to review preventive and control measures for decreasing ESBL production, and thus mortality. Methods: Hospitalized patients or patients who have applied to the emergency service between January 1st 2010 and December 31st 2011, with positive blood cultures for E. coli and K. pneumoniae and fulfilling Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) criteria for bloodstream infection were included in the study. Subjects with ESBL-producing E. coli and K. pneumoniae infection were included in the case group while subjects infected with ESBL-negative organisms were included in the control group to make a comparison in terms of risk factors and mortality. Results: During the study period, 310 patients with positive blood cultures for E. coli and K. pneumoniae and fulfilling CDC criteria for bloodstream infection were detected. 99 (31.9%) isolates from these patients were found as ESBL-positive. Chronic renal failure (p=0.001), decubitus wound/infection (p=0.015), hemodialysis (p=0.032), solid organ transplantation (p=0.001), surgical interventions within last 2 weeks (p=0.001), urological interventions within last 3 months (p=0.032), antibiotic usage within last three months (p=0.001), cephalosporin usage (p=0.001), steroid usage (p=0.001), and presence of ESBL-producing organisms in clinical specimens other than blood culture (p=0.001) were found as significant risk factors. No significant statistical difference was detected when these two groups were compared in terms of infection related mortality (p=0.919). Conclusions: Determination of ESBL rates and risk factors in bloodstream infections will be beneficial for determining future treatment options and taking infection control measures. © 2014, AVES Ibrahim Kara.
