Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial, as delays in care for certain diagnoses can cause permanent scarring alopecia. The evaluation of hair loss includes a thorough history, physical examination, and other potential tests. The causes of hair loss can be classified as either acquired versus congenital. Acquired causes of hair loss can be subdivided into scarring and nonscarring; however, some conditions may present as nonscarring and progress to scarring alopecia. Recommendations for the evaluation and treatment of pediatric hair loss for the primary care practitioner will be summarized. J Pediatr Health Care. (2021) 35, 651−661

Before 2018, there were no U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved medications for managing seizures in Dravet syndrome (DS). Common agents used in the antiepileptic drug regimens of patients with DS included clobazam, valproic acid, topiramate, and levetiracetam, among others; however, these agents alone rarely provide adequate seizure control. Management of seizures in DS changed in recent years with the approval of cannabidiol and stiripentol in 2018 and fenfluramine in 2020. This continuing education article summarizes available efficacy and safety data involving cannabidiol, stiripentol, and fenfluramine and provides a practical review of dosing strategies, pharmacokinetics, and monitoring interventions relevant to their use.

1.0 NAPNAP contact hour. The gynecologic assessment in prepubertal children is an essential element of a thorough physical examination. It is not unusual for pediatric health care providers, including pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs), to feel challenged by assessing for gynecologic signs and symptoms and performing a physical examination of the external genitalia in prepubertal girls (Bhoopatkar, Wearn, & Vnuk, 2017; Dabson, Magin, Heading, & Pond, 2014; McBain, Pullon, Garrett, & Hoare, 2016). The benefits of routine genital examinations have been discussed in the literature, including increasing patient and caregiver comfort with an examination, improved health care provider skill and confidence with examination and diagnostic assessment, providing a baseline for future examinations, and documentation of previously undiscovered anomalies (Johnson, 2002). This continuing education article will discuss genital examination preparation and techniques, normal prepubertal hymenal variants, common prepubertal gynecologic problems, and genital examination findings concerning abuse.
