Abstract A healthy 10-year-old boy vomited during sleep and later complained of abdominal pain; he became drowsy and uncommunicative. At the nearby hospital E.R., he deteriorated rapidly, and his respiratory movements were absent with cardiac arrest. He was immediately resuscitated. Brain MRI showed no abnormalities. EEG revealed an abnormal pattern with recurrent multifocal epileptiform activity over the bilateral occipital and frontal regions during sleep. Based on the clinical/radiological findings we diagnosed Panayiotopoulos syndrome (PS), a benign form of early-onset pediatric epilepsy characterized by autonomic symptoms. Lifethreating cardiopulmonary arrest is rare in PS, but long seizure duration of PS may associate with apnea and bradycardia.

Abstract Worldwide, hemorrhagic shock in major trauma remains a major potentially preventable cause of death. Controlling bleeding and subsequent coagulopathy is a big challenge. Immediate assessment of unidentified bleeding sources is essential in blunt trauma patients with hemorrhagic shock. Chest/pelvic X-ray in conjunction with ultrasonography have been established classically as initial diagnostic imaging modalities to identify the major sources of internal bleeding including intra-thoracic, intra-abdominal, or retroperitoneal hemorrhage related to pelvic fracture. Massive soft tissue injury, regardless of whether isolated or associated with multiple injuries, occasionally causes extensive hemorrhage and acute traumatic coagulopathy. Specific types of injuries, including soft tissue injury or retroperitoneal hemorrhage unrelated to pelvic fracture, can potentially be overlooked or be considered “occult” causes of bleeding because classical diagnostic imaging often cannot exclude such injuries. The purpose of this narrative review article is to describe “occult” or unusual sources of bleeding associated with blunt trauma.
