Organophosphorus compounds and carbamates are cholinesterase inhibitors which are widely used as pesticides and insecticides. There is an increased risk for accidental human intoxication among farmers and their families. Acute pancreatitis and late onset polyneurophaty are rare and serious side effects of organophosphate poisoning. A 13-year-old farmer's boy was taken to the hospital after playing around and eating fruits in a field which has just been applied pesticide. He was hospitalized with vomiting and loss of consciousness. The case was diagnosed as acute pancreatitis which can be obscured by severe systemic effects of organophosphate poisoning. Three weeks later he was admitted to hospital again and diagnosed with organophosphate-induced delayed polyneuropathy. Copyright © 2010 by Türkiye Klinikleri.

Urolithiasis (UL) is a common problem in pediatric nephrology practice. About 9-23% of all pediatric UL cases consist of patients under 1 years old. The aim of the present study was to determine etiologic causes, clinical features and short term prognosis of urolithiasis in the first two years of life.Two-hundred children between 0-2 years of age (mean age 10.36.1 months) with urolithiasis were included to the study. All children were completely evaluated for urolithiasis etiology. Patients were followed for at least 1 year with 3-month follow-up intervals.The mean follow-up duration was 36.2 months. Family history was positive for urolithiasis in 99 (49.5%) patients. The cause of admission were urinary tract infection and related symptoms in 101 (50.5%), incidentally during imaging for other causes in 40 (20%), stone passage in 21 (10.5%), hematuria in 18 (9%), voiding difficulty in 14 (7%) and antenatal detected urinary anomaly in 6 (3%) patients. Accompanying urinary anomalies (anatomical defects) in 51 (25.5%) patients were detected primarily including vesiculoureteral reflux (VUR) in 32 (62.9%) of them. Development of new stones was determined in 45 (22.5%) patients in the first year, in 15 (22%) patients in the second year and in 8 (36.3%) patients in the third year. CONCLUSON: In result, among pediatric urinary stone diseases, infantile UL appears to be a seperate clinical entity in terms of both the etiological characteristics and the clinical course of the disease. Furthermore, when an infant is presented with nonspecific symptoms for kidney stone, a renal ultrasonography could be performed for detecting nephrolithiasis.
