Introduction: Children with cancer are at increased risk of endocrine complications, especially children with a brain tumor. One of these late effects includes bone disorders (ranging from low bone mineral density (BMD) to osteoporosis). Children with a suprasellar Low Grade Glioma (LGG) may be especially at risk for bone problems due to exposure to multiple treatment modalities, hypothalamic dysfunction and/or decreased mobility in combination with vision los...

Background: The majority of children diagnosed with idiopathic isolated growth hormone deficiency (IIGHD) show a normal growth hormone (GH) secretion (assessed by GH stimulation tests) when retested at near adult height (NAH). It appears plausible that if normal stimulated GH secretion is observed in mid-puberty, continuing recombinant human GH (rhGH) treatment may only have a minor effect on NAH. The effect on NAH has never been investigated in a prospective ...
