Severe Heterotopic Ossifications in a 10-year-old Boy with PHP1a

Raimann Adalbert , Alexandra Ertl Diana , Riedl Stefan , Schlegel Werner , Haeusler Gabriele

Background: Progressive osseous heteroplasia (POH) is a rare condition characterized by extensive heterotopic ossification (HO) of connective tissues. Associations of HO and Albright hereditary dystrophy (AHO) lead to the identification of GNAS mutations to be causative for ectopic none formations. The highly imprinted GNAS locus is known to cause a broad spectrum of pathologic conditions, including pseudohypoparathyrodism (PHP), pseudoPHP AHO. While PHP is caused by maternal ...

Zoledronic Acid for Management of Osteopenia of Prematurity and Associated Ventilator Dependency

White Mary , Pellicano Anastasia , Zacharin Margaret , Simm Peter

Background: The effect of bisphosphonates in patients with severe osteopenia of prematurity is unknown in terms of either fracture prevention or long-term safety. A 6-month-old male infant born at 24+2 weeks gestation was referred for consideration of bisphosphonate therapy in the management of severe osteopenia of prematurity. The neonatal course included chronic lung disease requiring four courses of corticosteroids. Despite optimal calcium, phosphate and vitamin D supplemen...

Mutation in the TBCE Gene Associated with Kenny-Caffey Type 1 Syndrome: a Rare Cause of Hypocalcemia

Meriem Bensalah , Fatma Zohra Bouzidi , Beauloye Veronique , Maria Garcia Hoyos , Zahra Kemali

Background: Kenny-Caffey syndrome type 1 is a rare autosomal recessive syndrome caused by mutation in the TBCE gene (Tubulin specific chaperone E) located in the chromosome region 1q42-q43. Less than 60 cases have been reported in the literature especially in the Middle East and Arabic countries. This syndrome is characterized by growth retardation, dysmorphic features, with thickened bone cortex and medullary stenosis, hypoparathyroidism, teeth anomalies. Hypopituitarism with...

Vitamin D Levels in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults with Juvenile onset Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: a Cross-sectional Study

Stagi Stefano , Capirchio Laura , Bertini Federico , Menchini Camilla , Scalini Perla , Seminara Salvatore , de Martino Maurizio , Falcini Fernanda

Background: Hypovitaminosis D is common in the general population. Although many studies on 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) are available on systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), little data is present in juvenile onset SLE (JSLE) patients.Objective and hypotheses: This study aimed to assess serum 25(OH)D levels in JSLE patients and to identify risk factors for vitamin D deficiency in this population.Method: Forty-five consecutive Cauc...

Disproportionate Short Stature with Advanced Bone Age Due to PTHLH Mutation

Boot Annemieke , Stolte-Dijkstra Irene , Veenstra-Knol Irma

Background: Skeletal dysplasia is the main cause of disproportionate short stature. The severity may vary. The present patient had disproportionate short stature with brachydactyly.Patient and method: A boy of 5 years old presented with height 108.9 cm (−1.8 S.D.), sitting height/height ratio was +3.4 S.D., short hands and feet with short metacarpal 4 and metatarsal 4 on both sides. He had increased lumbar lordosis and...

Plasma 25-OH Vitamin D and pth Concentrations in Cord Blood: relationship with Ethnic Groups, Nutritional Habits and Degree of Maternal Sun Exposure

Ortigosa Gomez Sandra , Garcia Algar Oscar , Mur Sierra Antonio , Ferrer Costa Roser , Carrascosa Lezcano Antonio , Yeste Fernandez Diego

Introduction: Several studies showing a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in pregnant women have been published in recent years. Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy has been related to adverse events both in mother and child. Plasma 25-OH vitamin D (25(OH)D) levels in the newborn are dependent on maternal deposits and show a close correlation with maternal levels; thus, neonates of vitamin D-deficient mothers present a greater risk of hypocalcaemia, rickets and a highe...

Cleidocranial Dysplasia Misdiagnosed as Rickets in Three Generations

Franceschi Roberto , Maines Evelina , Fedrizzi Michela , Rosaria Piemontese Maria , Bellizzi Maria , Cauvin Vittoria , Di Palma Annunziata

Background: Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD; MIM 119600) is a rare congenital autosomal dominant skeletal dysplasia characterized by hypoplastic or aplastic clavicles, late closure of the fontanelles, open skull sutures, dental anomalies, moderately short stature and a variety of other skeletal features. CCD is caused by mutations, deletions or duplications in the runt-related transcription factor 2 gene (RUNX2), which encodes for a protein essential for osteoblast differentiatio...
