The Fifties The Teen Pregnancy Decade

Teenage pregnancy and motherhood peaked in the 1950s amid the postwar Baby Boom, when nearly 1 in 10 girls age 15 to 19 gave birth every year and nearly half of all new brides in the country were under age 20. That four-fifths of these were legitimized by often-short-lived marriages did not cover up the high rates of high schoolers' sex. Notions that the past was more moral what one sociologist historian called the myth of an abstinent past were belied by cold statistics of the time, which were...

Female Genital Abnormalities

Infant Genitalia

A premature infant with a glanular hypospadias and chordee in the act of voiding. Note that the chordee results in a stream of urine always pointing downward, hence the importance of correcting this defect. Note the normal appearance of the developing premature scrotum. Figure 4.103. Glanular hypospadias with a hooded prepuce incomplete foreskin with chordee. Note that the whole ventral surface of the glans is uncovered, with prepuce covering only the dorsum of the glans like a...

Images Pseudohermaphrodites

Micropenis with a normal scrotum in an infant who presented with severe hypoglycemia. This combination should alert one to the diagnosis of hypopituitarism. There is a higher incidence of hypopituitarism in patients with a variety of midline defects. Hypopituitarism was confirmed in this infant. Figure 5.20. This female infant has ambiguous genitalia. The karyotype was XX. Difficulties in determining the sex of an infant may arise from abnormalities of the external genitalia....

Toddler Vaginal Secretions

Baby Vaginal Discharge

Normal mucoid vaginal discharge in a normal female infant. This results from the withdrawal effect from the in utero environment. Figure 4.44. Withdrawal bleeding in a normal female neonate. Vaginal bleeding is not uncommon in the first week of life. It is caused by die withdrawal of die high maternal estrogen level to which the baby has been exposed in utero. Vaginal bleeding is self-limited in diat transplacental hormone withdrawal effect starts on the third to fourth day of life...

Telangiectatic Nevi Pictures

Haemangioma Salmon Patch

Macular hemangioma angel's kiss of the eyelids in a newborn infant. Vascular nevi occur in up to 40 of newborns. They are divided into three groups salmon patches, hemangiomas, and vascular malformations and are classified by their histology and the degree of involvement of the skin and subcutaneous tissues. The most common are the salmon patches macular hemangioma, nevus flammeus . They consist of dilated capillaries in the superficial layers of the dermis and are noted most...

Close-up of the face of the same infant showing again the disproportion between the large head and the small face which tapers to a narrow jaw giving rise to a triangular facies. The fronto-occipital circumference is normal and the fontanelles are enlarged. Note the frontal bossing, prominent eyes, long eyelashes, and downturned angles of the mouth giving a carp-like appearance , micrognathia, and posteriorly rotated ears. A triangular facies is often the result of a disparity...

When should you see a gestational sac

Gestational Sac

Usually by 5 weeks LMP 3 weeks post conception a gestational sac will be visualized. However, virtually all clinicians know that menstrual dating is notoriously unreliable. Therefore the concept of a discriminatory level of hCG was developed. The discriminatory level of hCG was originally described in 1981.6 The initial report was with transabdominal ultrasound and equalled 6500IU L. This was updated in 1985 by Nyberg et al.7 to 3600 IU L. Transvaginal ultrasonography led to the level being...

Small Penile Syndrome Pictures

Small Penile Syndrome Pictures

Bilateral cryptorchidism in a term infant with a normal penis. Note the empty scrotal sacs and the median raphe which traverses the underside of the penile shaft and scrotum. Babies of die youngest gestational ages have the highest rate of undescended testes or cryptorchidism. Even at term, about 3 of male infants have an incompletely descended testis on one side nearly twice as often on die right as on the left . The majority descend within the first year. Figure 4.85. Bilateral...

An 8 Week Old On A Fallopian Tube Alive

Ectopic Pregnancy Weeks

The increased incidence of ectopic pregnancy seen over recent decades has occurred simultaneously with an increased incidence of pelvic inflammatory disease. This suggests a causal relationship (Figure 11.1). Improvements in the treatment of pelvic inflammatory diseases may now preserve tubal function in women who previously would have suffered from tubal factor infertility. However, more recently in Norway a fall in the incidence of ectopic pregnancy has been reported.1 It has been suggested...

Ovarian Cysts In Early Pregnancy

Pain Management Diagram

Women who present with lower abdominal pain or unilateral iliac fossa pain need to have a TVS in order to exclude an ectopic pregnancy. In the situation where an intrauterine pregnancy is confirmed, an ovarian cyst may be the cause of the abdominal pain. In a recent study in our unit, we reported that the prevalence of ovarian cysts of > 25 mm in the firsttrimester population studied was 5.4 the vast majority of these were incidental findings.25 The Figure 3.6 Flow diagram to illustrate a...

Newborn Oral Development

Breastfeeding Breast Anatomy

Infants perform a series of complex oral movements to obtain sufficient nutriment from their mother's breast to meet daily nutritional requirements and to support rapid growth, especially during the first few months of life. Suckling is a dynamic process, as the infant is continually adjusting to a changing anatomy. The act of suckling is far more than simply obtaining food. The infant's earliest autonomous functions are focused about his mouth and pharynx area. The infant's mouth is the...

Photos Of Infants With Marfan

Infants With Marfan Syndrome

A term newborn with Marfan syndrome who had a birth weight of 3720 g and a length of 54 cm. Note the tall stature with long slim limbs and hypotonia. In Marfan syndrome, limbs are disproportionately long and trunk length is usually normal resulting in a low upper lower segment ratio. Ophthalmologic and cardiovascular pathologies, such as dislocation of the lens and aneurys-mal dilatation of the aorta, are usually noted after the neonatal period. Figure 3.98. A term newborn with...

Bilateral pulmonary interstitial emphysema in another infant in which the radiograph shows the typical findings of hyperinflation and diffuse hyperlucencies within the lung parenchyma. This complication of hyaline membrane disease occurs most commonly as a complication of mechanically assisted ventilation and rarely occurs spontaneously. There is widespread rupture of alveoli resulting in accumulation of air in the interstitial lung tissue. Figure 1.128. Bilateral pulmonary...

Staphylococcus Aureus And Fertility

Staphylococcus Aureus Neck

Staphylococcal pyoderma of the neck in an infant at the age of 8 days. Figure 2.3. Bullous impetigo (pemphigus neonatorum) in a newborn infant at the age of 6 days. This infection may occur as early as the second day or as late as two weeks of life and may demonstrate bodi bullous and impetiginous lesions. It is most commonly due to a staphylococcal infection but, on occasion, is caused by Streptococcus. The lesions are more common in moist, warm areas such as the axillary folds of...

Vasomotor Instability Infant

Vasomotor Instability Infant

Cutis marmorata is a common finding in normal infants. This fine reticulated mottled appearance is due to vasomotor instability and thus is more commonly seen in premature infants, but should also alert one to the possibility of sepsis, hypothyroidism, and central nervous system pathology. Figure 1.19. Mongolian spots in a black infant. The spots have no significance but are sometimes mistaken for bruises, causing a suspicion of child abuse. This should be kept in mind when...

Yeast Candida Infections Thrush Diaper Rash

Cause A yeast infection appears in the mouth thrush or as diaper rash in infants and is caused by candida, a yeastlike fungus. The majority of infections are caused by one species, Candida albicans. Oral thrush occurs in 2 to 5 percent of normal new-borns and a higher percentage of low-birthweight babies. Diaper dermatitis is the most common infection caused by candida. Older children who have been treated with oral antibiotics or who have a weakened immune system are also prone to yeast...

Metabolic Syndrome And Big Stomach

Caudal Regression Syndrome

The intravenous pyelogram in this infant shows a left-sided ureterovesical obstruction resulting in a left hydroureter and severe left hydronephrosis. The radiograph was taken 3 hours after injection of the dye. Note that the calyceal pattern on the right side is normal and the bladder is not very enlarged. Hydronephrosis in the newborn is most commonly due to obstruction at the bladder neck or at the ureterovesical junction. With the advent of ultrasonography, intravenous...

Right, lateral radiograph of the neck of the same infant showing the presence of a large congenital goiter which caused severe respiratory distress. Figure 5.2....

Meconium Bloodstained Liquor and its Implications

The liquor (amniotic fluid) is monitored throughout the labor. Thick meconium staining liquor indicates that the baby has passed motion inside the mother's womb. This could be associated with fetal distress and the doctor may expedite delivery. There is also a worry that the baby may aspirate (breathe in) the meconium stained liquor, resulting in lung infection and injury. If the liquor is heavily blood stained, premature separation of the placenta (placenta abruption) needs to be excluded....

Beckwith Wiedemann Syndrome

Infantile Pompe Disease

Macroglossia in an otherwise normal infant. The most common cause of macroglos-sia is idiopathic hypertrophy of the muscles of the tongue. Figure 1.104. Macroglossia associated with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome. These infants have exomphalos omphalocele or large umbilical hernia , macroglossia, and gigantism EMG syndrome . Figure 1.104.

Hypoplasia of the labia majora may give rise to the false impression of a large clitoris.

Cardiorespiratory System

Glioma Nasal

Following birth, the function of gas exchange is transferred from the placenta to the lungs. Oxygen supply to the newborn infant depends upon the establishment of rhythmic breathing, expansion of the lungs with air, adequate pulmonary blood flow to pick up oxygen from the lungs, and systemic blood flow to transport oxygen to the tissues. Normal respiration requires that the central and peripheral nervous systems involved in breathing are appropriately developed, that respiratory muscle...

Prader Willi Syndrom Baby

Musculoskeletal Disorders

In this view of the same infant as in Figure 3.156, in addition to the hypotonia, some of the characteristic craniofacial features are apparent. Note the almond-shaped, upslanting palpebral fissures and the prominent forehead. Figure 3.158. There is marked hypotonia in this infant with Prader-Willi syndrome in the prone position. It is usually severe in early infancy, and Moro's reflex and tendon reflexes are decreased or absent. Congenital dislocation of the hips is not Figure...

Balanitis Phimosis and Hygiene Considerations

The Uncircumcised Penis

In newborn males, the foreskin usually has not separated completely from the end of the penis, making it impossible to fully retract or pull back the foreskin to expose the glans. It may take months or years before the foreskin becomes retractable, which allows the boy to clean the area of the penis under the foreskin. This occurs in about 90 percent of uncircumcised boys by five years of age. Infection of the glans and foreskin, called balanitis, is more common in uncir-cumcised males, but...

Conclusion Of Diebetes In Pregnancy

Gestational diabetes is a period of glucose intolerance that manifests at the beginning of the third trimester. Metabolic changes in the normal pregnant women also have a degree of insulin resistance that shunts glucose preferentially to the fetus. To maintain blood glucose levels within a tight range, the normal pregnant woman must increase her insulin secretion up to 4-fold. When the pancreas is not able to compensate for the increased insulin needs of pregnancy, GDM occurs resulting in...

Combining Multiple Markers Into a Risk Based Screen

As a marker for risk of Down syndrome, MSAFP by itself measured solely for the purpose of estimating the risk of Down syndrome would not be powerful enough to be justified. However, because MSAFP is widely used for ONTD screening, use of its modest additional information about the risk of Down syndrome is easily justified. Screening for Down syndrome also benefited from screening for ONTD in that the concept of the MoM had already been developed for ONTD screening (see Using the MoM to Adjust...
