  • Hypoglycemia

    pitched cry Lethargy, listlessness, hypotonia Cyanosis, apnea, tachypnea Hypothermia, temperature instability Poor suck, refusal to feed Transiently low blood glucose levels[] pitched cry, seizures, apnea, limpness, poor feeding, cyanosis, temperature instability, and coma.[] […] distress, etc) Glucose screening is also recommended for infants with clinical signs consistent with hypoglycemia: Tremors, jitteriness, irritability Exaggerated Moro reflex High[]

  • Hypernatremia

    Your baby has a high-pitched cry, muscle weakness, or unusual irritability or drowsiness. You have dry eyes or mouth. You have nausea, and you are vomiting.[] Other symptoms include increased thirst response in alert patients and high-pitched cry in infants. The skin can feel doughy or velvety due to intracellular water loss.[] High-pitched cry, muscle weakness, or unusual irritability or drowsiness in infants Headache, confusion, or irritability Drowsiness Seizures Muscle weakness or twitching Breathing[]

  • Neonatal Sepsis

    pitched cry Swelling of Fontanel Cardiovascular Hypotension Metabolic Acidosis Tachycardia Skin Pallor or skin mottling Petechiae or Purpura Cold or clammy skin Cyanosis[] Patients and methods Patients This study was carried out in the neonatal ICU in Benha Children Hospital over 60 neonates presenting with late-onset neonatal septicemia.[] Neonatal sepsis or septicaemia is a clinical syndrome characterized by systemic signs of circulatory compromise (e.g., poor peripheral perfusion, pallor, hypotonia, poor responsiveness[]

  • Fetal Trauma

    High-pitched crying sounds Inconsolable crying and crying without apparent cause Hypersensitivity to near or direct touch Desire to not be held Falling asleep when over-stimulated[] The neonate can present with hypotonia, quadriplegia or paraplegia; plain radiographs, ultrasound and MRI can aid diagnosis [ 19 ].[] […] little tone or too much tension in their muscles Startle response to sound or movement Jerky arms, legs and head Involuntary shaking or tremors Constant, weak, or “absent” crying[]

  • Neonatal Jaundice

  • Long Chain Hydroxyacyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

    The infant may have a high-pitched cry and the odor of maple syrup may emanate from the diaper.[] hypotonia, respiratory acidosis Treatment: Not established[] It presents during infancy or early childhood, and is characterized by hypoketotic hypoglycemia, cardiomyopathy, hypotonia, and hepatomegaly.[]

  • Cri Du Chat Syndrome

    It presents with a distinctive catlike high-pitched cry, psychomotor delays, microcephaly, craniofacial abnormalities, and, in many cases, ocular findings.[] The typical cri du chat syndrome, due to 5p15.2 deletion, includes severe intellectual disability, facial dysmorphisms, neonatal hypotonia and pre- and post-natal growth retardation[] A deletion of this chromosomal region has been associated with the cri-du-chat syndrome (CDCS), a segmental aneusomy syndrome of 5p that is associated with an unusual high-pitched[]
