The theme of this year’s meeting is Variety and Variation in Paediatric Endocrinology. Join us in Vienna to explore the diversity we encounter in our discipline and the care that we have to exercise when using the term “normality”. Whilst gaining an update on the latest treatments, clinical best practice and cutting edge research in the field of paediatric endocrinology.

Bone Tissue Characterization of a Mouse Model of Atypical Type VI Osteogenesis Imperfecta Reveals Hypermineralization of the Bone Matrix, Elevated Osteocyte Lacunardensity and Altered Vascularity

Objectives: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is an extremely heterogeneous connective tissue disorder characterized by low bone mass, which together with altered bone matrix properties leads to skeletal fragility. Due to the wide range of symptoms, the pathophysiology of the OI is not fully understood. Null mutations in SERPINF1, encoding the potent antiangiogenic factor PEDF, cause type VI OI with excessive osteoid formation, abnormal osteoblast-osteocyt...

Introduction: Longitudinal skeletal growth is achieved by enchondral ossification in epiphyseal growth plates (GP) of long bones and vertebrae. These highly organized cartilaginous tissues contain chondrocytes of all differentiational stages classified in three distinct zones named resting, proliferative and hypertrophic. Separated analysis of individual zones is essential in basic GP research thus efficiency of different zonal separation methods confers high ...

Decreased Trabecular Bone Mineral Density and Muscle Area at the Forearm Despite Improvement in Glycaemic Control Over 3 Years After Simultaneous Pancreas Kidney Transplantation

Soucek Ondrej , Maratova Klara , Sumnik Zdenek , Brunova Jana , Kratochvilova Simona

Background: Simultaneous pancreas kidney transplantation (SPKT) is a standard treatment option for young adults with type I diabetes (T1D) and concurrent renal failure. Despite the long-term immunosuppressive therapy the patients have better glycemic control, normalized renal function and an improved quality of life. Whether this is also reflected in the skeleton is not that clear yet.Methods: Patients were prospectively...

Metabolically Unhealthy Obese Children and Adolescents Have Higher Bone Mineral Density Than Normal Weighted Controls but Lower than Metabolically Healthy Obeses: No Effect of FGF21 Levels

Akduman Filiz , Siklar Zeynep , Ozsu Elif , Doğan Ozlem , Kir Metin , Berberoglu Merih

Introduction: The harmfull or benefical effect of obesity on bone mineral density (BMD) is remain controversial in children and adolescence. Either increase or decrease of BMD have been reported. Several factors such as insülin resistance, prediabetes, high proportion of fat mass, sedentary lifestyle were suggested to cause the differences of BMD in obesity. FGF-21 is a metabolic factor that plays a specific role in the regulation of carbohydrate and lipi...

No Change in Bone Density During 6 Months Off GH in Adolescents with Severe GHD at Near-Adult Height

Schweizer Roland , Donner Julia , Becker Bettina , Bauer Jana Leonie , Binder Gerhard

Objective: Re-testing of childhood-onset GHD needs discontinuation of GH treatment at near-adult height. We recently reported significant changes of body composition as a consequence of severe GHD during this time period.Aim: Does a 6 month interruption of GH treatment decrease bone quality significantly in patients with severe GHD of adolescence?Patients and Methods: In 90 patient...

Craniosynostosis in Inactivating PTH/PTHrP Signaling Disorder 2: A Non-Classical Feature to Consider

Riaño-Galan Isolina , Rothenbuhler Anya , Debza Yahya , Barosi Anna , Mantovani Giovanna , Perez de Nanclares Guiomar , Linglart Agnès

Classic features of inactivating PTH/PTHrP Signaling Disorder 2 or 3 (iPPSD2, iPPSD3), i.e. former pseudohypoparathyroidism include multi-hormone resistance, short stature, subcutaneous ossifications, brachydactyly, and early-onset obesity and a molecular defect at the GNAS region. In addition, patients may present with less-known features including craniosynostosis (CSO).Objective: To describe the prevalence of CSO in a cohort ...
