Mobile Dental Van (MDV) removes the barrier of accessibility and improves the care of underserved populations. Dental institutions across India, providing postgraduate training in dental public health organize and conduct MDV programs as part of their curriculum. To describe the structure, conduct and utilization of MDV programs in consideration to duration of use by the academic institutions for oral health care delivery in rural areas.

The mobile dental van programs were more curative with limited orientation towards preventive services. The institutionally sponsored programs with experience of more than 10 years had better organized setup and adequate emergency management system together with electricity, water and storage facilities. Chair side assistants were employed in 90 percent of newer programs compared to only 50 percent of older programs. Dental hygienists were helping the dentists in only 60 percent of programs. The utilization of MDV in treating rural underserved is indispensable, but revenue and high productivity is difficult to achieve as lower socioeconomic patients are predominantly served. MDV programs operational in postgraduate institutions have to improvise on correcting the shortcomings regarding the facilities and manpower to improve the utilization of the programs.

2019 Journal of Nepal Paediatric Society  
Hypothyroidism in children causes delayed puberty. However longstanding untreated hypothyroidism can lead to precocious puberty which may be secondary to hyperprolactinemia or increased levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), enhancing the sensitivity of ovaries to circulating gonadotropins. Here we report a seven and half years old girl with hypothyroidism presenting with precocious puberty and multicystic ovaries which responded well to thyroid hormone supplementation but subsequently

2020 Journal of Nepal Paediatric Society  
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an auto immune disorder affecting mainly adolescent females and young women of reproductive age. The disease is characterised by widespread inflammation of blood vessels and connective tissues due to the presence of anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA). There are limited number of studies from South India on paediatric lupus. Our objectives were to study the clinical and immunological features of childhood SLE along with treatment modalities and its outcome at the

Methods: This was a retrospective observational study carried out in paediatric unit at a tertiary care centre in South India. Data was obtained through patient's medical records. From April 2003 to April 2019, 32 children were diagnosed to have SLE as per the American college of Rheumatology 1997 criteria. Results: The study population included 32 children fulfilling the criteria. Female to male ratio was 4.3:1. The mean age at diagnosis was 11.52 years. The most common clinical manifestations were renal (87.5%) followed by haematological (81.3%), musculoskeletal (59.4%), mucocutaneous (53.1%) and nervous system (31.3%) involvement. All patients were positive for anti-nuclear antibodies. Anti-double stranded DNA (78.1%) was the most common auto-antibody profile followed by anti-ribosomal p protein (37.5%) and anti-nucleosome antibody (37.5%). During the follow up, 13 (40.6%) children attained complete remission, 10 (31.2%) went into partial remission and nine (28.1%) had persisting active disease. Conclusion: The clinical spectrum and outcome of paediatric SLE depends upon the age of presentation and number of organ systems involved at the time of diagnosis. Our study throws light on various aspects of SLE in children from developing countries like India.

Material and Methods: We conducted a retrospective observational study at a tertiary care hospital in South India. Children less than 18 years of age admitted to our paediatric unit were included in the study. We reviewed the case sheets of 56 patients who tested positive for influenza B virus during the study period and recorded their clinical and laboratory data. Throat swab obtained from cases were tested by RT-PCR. The illness was classified as upper respiratory tract infection, pneumonia and severe pneumonia. Outcome measures analysed were- mortality, need for oxygen supplementation or assisted ventilation, duration of oxygen support, duration of ICU/ hospital stay and time for defervescence following initiation of oseltamivir therapy. Results: The mean age of the study population was 6.98 years. Majority of the affected children were > 5 years of age in the school going category with a male to female ratio of 3:2. The diagnosis based on clinical and radiological findings included upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) in 44 (78.5%) cases followed by pneumonia in 11(19.6%) and severe pneumonia in one (1.7%) child. The peak incidence was in the month of March. Malnutrition was the most common risk factor affecting 22 (39.3%) cases followed by history of asthma in eight (14.3%). Three children required oxygen supplementation at admission. The median duration of hospital stay was seven days. The median duration for defervescence following initiation of oseltamivir therapy was 24 hours. Mortality was recorded in one infant who died of acute respiratory distress syndrome. Conclusions: Influenza B virus should be screened in all children having underlying high risk medical condition, presenting with pneumonia or upper respiratory tract infection. Oseltamivir therapy should be initiated early in the management of influenza B viral infections to prevent complications.

A pre-structured questionnaire designed by Mandall et al, with nine conceptual impact sub-scales to highlight the problem faced by the patient in daily life after wearing the appliance was used to collect the data. Unpaired t-test was used to determine the statistical significance and the influence of variables were analysed using multiple linear regression analysis. Factors which demonstrated high impact were oral hygiene (Mean=3.42; SD=0.78) followed by time constraints (Mean=3.23; SD=0.72) and physical impact (Mean=3.00; SD=0.61). Gender difference showed statistical significance in social impact (p=0.009), time constraints (p=0.001) and travel or cost implications (p=0.009). Internal reliability of the questionnaire ranged from low to good (Cronbach's alpha 0.29-0.81). Test-retest reliability ranged from an intra-class correlation coefficient 0.09-0.42. Patients who had been comprehensively informed about their treatment had greatest levels of satisfaction and compliance with treatment. Younger patients showed an earlier adaptation to treatment with fixed appliances which influenced the treatment to be started at the earliest possible age. Key words:Impact, malocclusion, quality of life.
