    Development Coordination Disorder (DCD), is characterized by motor coordination problems unrelated to intellectual, congenital, or acquired delays. Here we present the prevalence rate of DCD through Movement Assessment Battery for Children 2 (MABC-2), as a reference test and to identify associated risk factors in a sample of Mexican children. A total of 344 children, aged between 6 and 12 years, were examined with the DCDQ-07 questionnaire to identify the probable DCD carriers. The MABC-2 battery was applied to all children identified that way. All the children studied were from an elementary school (children with typical development). A questionnaire was also applied, asking for the variables associated to risk factors. Eleven (3.2%), children were identified as DCD children. Male gender was more affected.

    Although it is possible that these findings will change with longer follow-up, our data provide useful information to help guide treatment of these symptomatic cysts in children. In the case of an unresolved cyst, the risks and benefits of continued observation versus surgery, including recurrence rates and potential complications, should be discussed with the patients or their family ARS.

    Background: Monovalent rotavirus vaccine (Rotarix), was introduced in the immunization schedule of Togo in June 2014. We evaluated the sustained impact of the vaccine on acute gastroenteritis (AGE), and rotavirus-associated hospitalizations in Togolese children.
    Methods: Sentinel surveillance for AGE hospitalizations among children<5 years of age was conducted in two sites in the capital city, Lome. ELISA was used for diagnosis of rotavirus infection in children with AGE. For the vaccine impact analysis, the pre-vaccine period was defined as July 2010-June 2014 and the post-vaccine period was July 2014-June 2018.
    Results: During the pre-vaccine period, sentinel surveillance showed that 1,017 patients were enrolled and 57% (range, 53%-62%), tested positive for rotavirus, declining to an annual median of 34% (range, 26 - 42%), in the post-vaccine years. The median reduction was 38% (range, 24 – 53%). Declines were most marked among infants
    Conclusions: We report sustained reduction in the number of AGE hospitalizations and the proportion of AGE hospitalizations attributable to rotavirus in the first four years post- Rotarix implementation in Togo. It is necessary to monitor long-term vaccine impact on death and change in rotavirus strains through continued surveillance.
