Ferraro Paola , Casalini Emilio , Fava Daniela , Maghnie Mohamad , Patti Giuseppa , Di Iorgi Natascia

Introduction and Aim of the Study: girls with previous pediatric medulloblastoma (MB) are at risk of short stature and impairment of the hypothalamic pituitary gonadal function due to multiple risk factors;our aim was to assess the impact of hypergonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) on growth up to final height (FH) in females with or without growth hormone deficiency (GHD).Methods: anthropometrics (height-Ht-SDS, BMI-SDS, Tan...

Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS) is an epigenetic disorder characterized by severe intrauterine and postnatal growth retardation and typical dysmorphic features. The most common genetic abnormalities are 11p15 ICR1 loss of methylation, (11p15 LOM) and maternal uniparental disomy of chromosome 7 (mUPD7). There is little information on cognitive development in SRS patients and no neuroradiological studies are available so far. Global developmental delay and requirement for speech t...

There is little information on metabolic profiles and Body Composition in children with Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS).Methods: 31 SRS patients [16 subjects with 11p15 loss of methylation (11pLOM) and 15 subjects with maternal uniparental disomy of chromosome 7 (mUPD7); mean age 7.4±4.3 years] and non-SRS subjects [34 small for gestational age (SGA), 13.4±2.7 years, and 44 appropriate for gestational age (AGA), 6.9 ± 1.4 ye...

Achondroplasia is the most common skeletal dysplasia caused by a gain of function of the fibroblast growth factor receptor 3(FGFR3) that impairs endochondral ossification, exiting in short stature and altered bone microarchitecture. Although fractures and reduced bone mineralization are not comorbidities frequently reported, specific normative DXA data are lacking. Aim of the study was to assess bone density parameters in an Achondroplasia cohort. Fifty-seven patients (Female-...

Background: Childhood-onset obesity is a multifactorial disease with a lifelong health burden. In many cases, obesity is the result of the interaction between genetic predisposition and environmental factors. Aim of our study was to define phenotypic features of obese children and adolescents and to find possible associations between clinical phenotype and genetic variants.Patients and Methods: We recruited obese childre...

Background: Hypergonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) is an hallmark of Turner Syndrome (TS) and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is often required for pubertal induction; this retrospective study highlights the pituitary-gonadal axis during infancy (<5 years), childhood (5–10.9 years) and adolescence (> 11 years) in a cohort of TS patients enrolled between February 1999 to March 2023. Our aim is to underline the diagnostic role of Gonadotropins as a ma...

Background: Turner Syndrome (TS) is a chromosomopathy affecting 1 out of 2000-2500 live births. Although short stature, heart disease and ovarian dysgenesis are the best-known features, patients have variable cognitive impairments. Aim of this study is to analyze the cognitive profile of a cohort of patients enrolled between February 2018-March 2023.Methods: 49 TS patients [Group A: 45, X0 (n=13); Group B: mosai...
