  • Medical treatment for botulism. [Meta-Analysis]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019; 4:CD008123Chalk CH, Benstead TJ, … Keezer MR
  • CONCLUSIONS: We found low- and moderate-certainty evidence supporting the use of BIG-IV in infant intestinal botulism. A single RCT demonstrated that BIG-IV probably decreases the duration of hospitalization; may decrease the duration of mechanical ventilation; and probably decreases the duration of tube or parenteral feeding. Adverse events were probably no more frequent with immune globulin than with placebo. Our search did not reveal any evidence examining the use of other medical treatments including serum trivalent botulism antitoxin.
  • More Clinical Mimics of Infant Botulism. [Journal Article]
    J Pediatr 2018; 193:178-182Khouri JM, Payne JR, Arnon SS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Over the 23 years 1992-2015, patients presenting with illnesses so clinically similar to infant botulism that they were treated with BIG-IV had actual diagnoses that were distributed into 5 main categories. These categories and their individual components constitute a working bedside differential diagnosis of infant botulism.
  • Infant botulism in Denmark from 1995 to 2015. [Journal Article]
    Dan Med J 2017; 64(9)Drivenes B, Krause TG, … Børresen ML
  • CONCLUSIONS: Infant botulism is probably underdiagnosed. Increased awareness is crucial to be able to recognise the condition. The time delay from hospital admission to administration of BIG-IV is challenging. Studies have shown that BIG-IV reduces both mean duration of intensive care and mean length of hospital stay; however, this was not confirmed in our work due to the limited number of patients.
  • Abnormal Neuroimaging in a Case of Infant Botulism. [Case Reports]
    Front Pediatr 2015; 3:108Good RJ, Messacar K, … Carpenter TC
  • We present the first case of abnormal neuroimaging in a case of infant botulism. The clinical findings of the patient with constipation, bulbar weakness, and descending, symmetric motor weakness are consistent with the classic findings of infant botulism. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), however, revealed restricted diffusion in the brain and enhancement of the cervical nerve roots. Traditionall…
