- Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2 has rapidly spread, becoming the first pandemic of the 21st century by death toll. Children appear to be less affected than adults, with a milder clinical presentation and a significantly lower mortality rate. However, serious complica-tions can occur in childhood, such as COVID-19 temporally related multisystem inflammatory syn-drome (MIS-C). Some aspects of SARS-CoV-2 infection in children and adolescents remain un-clear and the optimal treatment has not been defined. The Working Group on COVID-19 in Paediatrics of the Emilia-Romagna Region (RE-CO-PED) has produced a consensus document with practical recommendations based on a systematic review of the literature and on the clinical experi-ence of the expert group. Evidence is reported regarding prevention measures, diagnostic tools as well as home and hospital therapeutic management of complicated cases (MIS-C). The educational and psychological effects of the pandemic in the paediatric and adolescent age are reported, with the need to define coordinated interventions (between paediatricians, neurospychiatrists, psycholo-gists and educational services) for the prevention and treatment of documented emotional, relational and educational consequences caused by the lockdown, school closures and social distances.

- The Covid-19 vaccination campaign represents a challenge for the health system. Eight Covid-19 vaccines belonging to 4 different categories of technology are currently available. More than the specific type of selected vaccine, major influencing factors for the success of the vaccination campaign are a quick coverage of the population, including the paediatric one, and the surveillance regarding the new viral variants.

- Venous thrombosis is a complication that mostly occurs in the paediatric patient with multiple comorbidities. In these cases, it is relatively simple for the paediatrician to suspect the presence of a thrombosis. On the contrary, due to the rarity of the pathology and the clinical presentation that can mimic other conditions, it could be difficult to recognize a thrombotic event in an extra-hospital context and in an "otherwise healthy" child. This article aims to examine how to diagnose and treat this rare paediatric condition promptly

- Short stature is the most common cause of referral to paediatricians. Only a minority of children with short stature have an underlying pathology. Although well-established diagnostic and management paradigms do exist, recent advances in molecular technologies have significantly improved our understanding of the genetic causes of short stature. Therefore, after the exclusion of nutritional, hormonal, inflammatory or systemic disorders, or skeletal dysplasias and syndromes, genetic causes should be ever supposed and genetic evaluation considered. An appropriate diagnosis of short stature should be performed as early as possible and personalized treatment should be started in a timely manner. Novel treatment approaches have been also proposed both as diagnostic tools and as therapeutic agents to optimize the approach to short stature. Therefore, detailed characterization of children with poor growth is necessary to perform a tailored diagnostic and therapeutic workup with the aim to decipher the causes of short stature better.

- Foodborne diseases (FBDs) are still a major public health problem. They are often caused by toxic sub-stances due to incorrect food storage. The paper describes three cases of FBD recently observed: the first concerns the so-called scombroid syndrome, the second Infant Botulism and the third acquired methemoglo-binemia. FBDs are now relatively rare so their recognition often represents a diagnostic challenge for pae-diatricians
