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.

Dramatic Clinical Response to Lenvatinib in One Pediatric Patient with Advanced Metastatic Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma

Dujovne Noelia , Gazek Natalia , Pitoia Fabian , Ayarzabal Victor , Felipe Laura , Lopez Marti Jessica , Herzovich Viviana

Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) is the most common thyroid tumor in childhood and adolescence. Most of these patients are referred with locally advanced and/or distant disease at the moment of diagnosis. Whenever is possible, these patients should be offered a total thyroidectomy and radioiodine remnant ablation. However, this approach is not always possible to perform, becoming these tumors as unresectable. These critical cases could benefit from the neoadjuvant treatment with...

Does Karyotyping and in situ Hybridization from Three Different Germ Layers Elucidate Low Bone Mineral Density in Turner Syndrome?

Soucek Ondrej , Lebl Jan , Zapletalova Jirina , Vrbicka Dita , Adamova Katerina , Prochazka Martin , Klaskova Eva

Background: Turner syndrome (TS) is caused by a total or partial loss of one X chromosome. Typical features include short stature and primary amenorrhoea. In addition, decreasing trabecular bone mineral density (BMD) and increasing cortical BMD during puberty has been reported at the radius.
