Pediatric emergencies related to mental health is an increasing problem in our community. We strongly think that pediatric emergency services should have specific areas and trained professionals for a proper care of these patients. Apart from receiving an appropriate medical assessment including screening of organic disease as part of the initial evaluation, pediatricians should also have some basic skills regarding the most common psychiatric problems in children. Transferring these patients to general hospitalsfor immediate psychiatric care, referring them to Mental Health Centers or prescribing psychopharmacological treatment are just some examples of decisions that the primary care pediatrician should be able to consider. Proper assessment and initial orientation of thesecases provides good therapeutic adherence and consequently a more favorable evolution of these patients. © 2014 Integral Ediciones Ergon SA.

We performed a retrospective study using a cross-sectional design for each year from 1997 to 2008 to evaluate the trend in pneumonia rates among HIV-infected children in the highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) era in Spain. We found that rate of pneumonia decreased among HIV-Infected children in the highly active antiretroviral therapy era but still remained higher than in the general population. Non-AIDS-defining pneumonia remains a significant health problem for HIV-infected children. © 2012 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
