Introduction: Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early spring 2020, there was a need to identify the burden of this infection on people with rare endocrine conditions. The European Registries For Rare Endocrine Conditions (EuRRECa) was launched in 2018 in collaboration with Endo-ERN, ESPE and ESE to support the needs of the wider endocrine community. The project consists of an e-reporting (e-REC) platform that allows monthly reporting of new clini...

Maternal, rather than fetal, genetic variation in vitamin D metabolism is associated with umbilical cord blood 25-hydroxyvitamin D in pregnancies supplemented with cholecalciferol: findings from the MAVIDOS randomized controlled trial

Background: Neonatal vitamin D deficiency (VDD) can result in symptomatic hypocalcemia, seizures and cardiomyopathy and has been associated with reduced bone mineralization in childhood, but is potentially preventable with antenatal cholecalciferol supplementation. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in the vitamin D metabolism pathway are associated with serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] in adulthood. We assessed whether maternal and/or offspring SNPs in ...

European Training Requirements for Competency in Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes 2021

Busiah Kanetee , Peet Aleksandr , Tornese Gianluca , Weintrob Naomi , Patel Leena , Hamza Rasha ,

Background: A Europe-wide training program in Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (PED) was initiated by Professor Leo Van den Brande in 1976. PED was recognised as a subspecialty in 1996 by the European Board of Paediatrics (EBP), which is a section of the Union of European Medical Specialists (UEMS). UEMS aims to ensure high standards for training across Europe and the minimum requirements are set out in the European Training Requirements (ETR). The first ...

Guemes Maria , Martin-Rivada Alvaro , Arribas Marta Bascuas , Andres Esteban Eva Maria , Angulo Blanca Molina , Argente Jesus ,

Introduction: As successful rates of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are on the rise, late endocrine and metabolic effects of these survivors have become more prevalent.Aims: We aimed to characterise the endocrine abnormalities observed following HSCT.Subjects and methods: A retrospective descriptive study in paediatric post-HSCT patients (< 18 years-old) follow...

Rituximab therapy in Rapid-Onset Obesity, Hypothalamic Dysfunction, Hypoventilation, and Autonomic Dysregulation (ROHHAD) Syndrome

Hawton Katherine , Doffinger Rainer , Ramanan Athimalaipet , Langton Hewer Simon C , Giri Dinesh , Hamilton Shield Julian P ,

Introduction: Rapid-onset obesity with hypoventilation, hypothalamic dysfunction and autonomic dysregulation (ROHHAD) is a rare syndrome that presents during early childhood and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. 40-50% of patients have neural crest tumours, most commonly ganglioneuromas or ganglio-neuroblastomas denoted by the suffix ROHHAD(NET) in a subset of patients. Currently, there is no specific diagnostic biomarker available and diagnosis...

Reassessment of 18F-DOPA PET cut-offs in congenital hyperinsulinism

Gubaeva Diliara , Ryzhkova Daria , Nikitina Irina , Mitrofanova Lubov , Tiulpakov Anatoly , Melikyan Maria ,

Introduction: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a rare but severe condition causing persistent hypoglycaemia. Approximately 30-40% of patients require surgical treatment. Extent of surgery depends on the histological form of the disease: subtotal pancreatectomy is done in diffuse CHI, whereas pancreatic resection is recommended in focal CHI.18F-DOPA PET scan is a gold-standard imaging technique that helps in differential diagnosis of diffuse and f...
