Neonatal cyanosis: diagnostic and management challenges

, : Neonatal cyanosis: diagnostic and management challenges. Isrn Pediatrics 2011: 175931-175931

Neonatal central cyanosis is always a sign of serious pathological processes and may involve diverse organs and impose a significant diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Here, we report an unusual presentation of Ebstein's anomaly, a rare congenital heart malformation, as the cause of central cyanosis in a one-week-old full-term infant. Initiation of PEG(1) therapy in neonates with Ebstein's anomaly always needs a very careful consideration because of a high risk for the development of a "circular shunt" leading to severe deterioration of multiple organs perfusion.

The anticancer antibiotic chromomycin A3 (Chro) is a DNA minor groove binding drug belonging to the aureolic family. Chro likely exerts its activity by interfering with replication and transcription. Chro forms a dimer, mediated by a divalent meta...
