    Abstract
    Iatrogenic calcinosis cutis presents with similar symptoms and signs of soft tissue, joint and bone infections. We present here a preterm infant with iatrogenic calcinosis cutis misdiagnosed as septhic arthritis and osteomyelitis. We hope that our case report helps to raise clinicians'awareness of this rare situation. .When swelling and erythema of extremities occur in a newborn infant after intravenous calcium infusion, iatrogenic calcinosis cutis should be considered after rulling out local infections

    Abstract: We report a case of a 17-year old boy, who presented acute bilateral cataract and complete vision loss within six days, three months after the diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM)under optimal metabolic control (HbA1c 6%).At presentation (HbA1c 10.4%) and after correction of diabetic ketoacidosis (pH 6.917)and the beginning of intensified insulin treatment with insulin glargine once daily and insulin aspart before meals,the patient underwent full ophthalmologic examination,which was completely normal.Only few cases with acute bilateral cataract - all relatively shortly after the diagnosis of T1DM - have been reported. Several hypotheses have been drawn but the exact mechanism of this phenomenon remains unclear. The interesting finding in our case was the clearly elevated insulin autoantibodies (IAA) at the time of cataract formation, negative however at presentation. The relation between the elevation of IAA and cataract formation should be further investigated in diabetic patients.

    Abstract: Urethral duplication is a genitourinary anomaly that may rarely present in conjunction with posterior urethral valves. The management algorithm of children affected by both these urologic conditions is still unknown, given the low incidence and the complexity of each of these conditions. We present our clinical experience with the management of a child with Y-type urethral duplication and posterior urethral valves.

    A 10 week old infant presented with a posterior scalp swelling which had increased in size over 1 week. She was otherwise well, thriving and afebrile. She was born at 39+5/40 via ventouse extraction and developed a moderate-sized subgalealhaemorrhage after delivery. She was observed in the Special Care Nursery for 48hrs and no intervention was required. The subgalealhaemorrhage had resolved by 1 week of age.
