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.

Al-Sagheir Afaf

X-linked hypophosphataemia (XLH) is the most common form of inherited hypophosphataemic rickets, caused by loss-of-function mutations in the gene encoding phosphate-regulating endopeptidase homologue X-linked (PHEX), resulting in excess circulating fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23).1,2 In children, therapy includes daily oral phosphate and active vitamin D analogue (alfacalcidol or calcitriol) supplementation, but is associated with gastrointestinal side...

Her younger sister had the same phenotype as same as her mother. The Trio WES test showed that they all inherited from their mother's COL1A2 gene mutation (c.928G>A; p.G328S) and diagnosed Osteogenesis Imperfecta, type IV. Unfortunately, the 7-year-old girl also presents coarse face, short neck, limi...

Mild Hypophosphatasia in a Family with a Novel Mutation in the ALPL Gene

Hong Yong Hee , Chung Sochung

Introduction: Hypophosphatasia (HPP) is a rare autosomal recessive or dominant genetic disorder characterized by the abnormal development of bones and teeth and deficiency of tissue non-specific alkaline phosphatase activity. These abnormalities occur due to defective mineralization, the process by which bones and teeth take up minerals such as calcium and phosphorus. The specific symptoms can vary greatly from one person to another, sometimes even among membe...

Congenital Hyperinsulinism in Kosova

Kotori Vjosa Mulliqi , Kotori Afrim

Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a rare inherited disease characterized by dysregulated insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells leading to profound and recurrent hypoglycemia. The incidence of the disease in most countries worldwide is about 1 in 50000 newborns, and more frequent in countries with high consanguinity. Recurrent hypoglycemia can lead to neurological insult and permanent brain injury.In Kosova in the last 15 years there were 4 ...

Background: Neonatal hypocalcemia is a common disorder, occurring more often in premature, low birth weight and asphyxiated infants, as in infants born to mothers with diabetes. Nevertheless its aetiology is heterogeneous ranging from iatrogenic, idiopathic and inherited metabolic abnormalities. Among these, Autosomal Dominant Hypocalcemia (ADH) is a rare syndrome characterized by the presence of inappropriately low concentration of circulating parathyroid hor...
