Background: Reduced growth is a common feature in RASopathies. Poor data are available about pubertal spurt and the effect on final height (FH) in patients with these disorders.Objective and hypotheses: To study growth, body proportions, pubertal pattern, and FH including subject treated with GH-therapy for proven GH deficiency.Method: We analized growth trend and body proportions in 88 patients affected by RASopathies with molecul...

Background: Pubertal growth, age of puberty onset and pubertal spurt duration are correlated to final height (FH). Few data are available in subjects with rare genetic syndromes.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate pubertal pattern and its influence on FH in subjects with different genetic syndromes including the effect of GH-therapy for GH deficiency (GHD) and GnRH analogs for precocious puberty (PP).Method: We studied for growth...

Introduction: Pediatric obesity is associated with an increased risk of serious long-term complications. Therapeutic failure is influenced by several factors, such as the high dropout rate. A retrospective study was conducted on a cohort of children and adolescents with essential obesity, in order to evalute (1)the average duration of a correct follow-up and the percentage of weight loss at the end of it, (2)the rate of drop-out, researching related factors.</...

Background: The adaptative increase of serum thyrotropin (TSH) levels in obese subjects may affect the metabolic regulation of body tissues and thus promote an unfavorable cardiometabolic profile.Aim: To investigate the association between serum TSH, free thyroxine (FT4) and cardiometabolic risk factors in euthyroid obese children and adolescents.Material and Methods: Four hundred ninety-one Caucas...

Objectives: To describe the auditory phenotype and dynamics of hearing thresholds in patients with Turner Syndrome (TS).Patients and Methods: Cross-section study evaluating the hearing thresholds in 246 TS patients (age range 4-44 yrs). Patients were divided into three age groups: Group 1 (79 TS, age range 4.0-12.9 yrs); Group 2 (109 TS, age range 13.0-25.9 yrs,) and Group 3 (66 TS, age range 26.0-44.9 yrs,). Pure tone a...
