Constipation in Children

Posted on

​​Bowel patterns vary from child to child just as they do in adults. Most children have bowel movements 1 or 2 times a day. Other children may go 2 to 3 days or longer before passing a normal stool.Children with constipation may have stools that are hard, dry, and difficult or painful to pass. These stools may occur daily or be less frequent. Although constipation can cause discomfort and pain, it’s ­usually temporary and can be treated.

Constipation is a common problem in children. It’s one of the main reasons children are referred to a specialist, called a pediatric gastroenterologist.

Combined Melanocytic Nevus with Common Nevus and Clonal/Inverted Type A Nevus in Conjunctiva-A Case Report

Posted on Updated on

Herein, we report a case of conjunctival clonal/inverted type A nevus with mild atypia. A 24-year-old female presented with a pigmented lesion of the left conjunctiva and plica semilunaris which had grown and increased in pigmentation for approximately eight weeks. An excisional biopsy was performed to rule out atypia, infection, and melanoma. Histological examination revealed a clonal/inverted type A nevus with mild atypia. This is a relatively rare but benign entity which may occasionally cause diagnostic confusion with melanoma.

Posted on Updated on

Unfortunately, instruments that have been developed to determine problematic gaming have not completely measured the behavioral component of video game addiction. Identifying the behavioral functions of video game play would allow for the development of behavioral interventions specifically targeted at reducing or replacing those functions.
