Chawla Meghna , Srinivas Priyanka , Deshpande Tushar

Small for gestational age (SGA) is an important cause of short stature in developing countries like India.Results: 97 children between 2-4 yrs of age who were born SGA were studied over six months and those whose height was below the third percentile on WHO growth charts were classified as short.The inter-group statistical comparison of distribution of categorical variables were tested using Chi-Square test and int...

A novel TRPM6 variant (c.3179T>A) causing familial hypomagnesemia with secondary hypocalcemia

Chawla Meghna , Bhardwaj Girish , Patil Atul ,

Familial hypomagnesemia with secondary hypocalcemia (FHSH) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder (OMIM# 602014) caused by mutations in the gene encoding TRPM6 (Transient receptor potential melastatin 6) on chromosome 9q22. This channel causes epithelial absorption of magnesium in the colon and renal distal convoluted tubule. Fewer than 100 cases have been reported in literature. A four year old girl had presented to us with tetany lasting for 30 minutes. Detailed history reve...

Systematic review of cortisol levels during acute illnesses in children and young people not known to have glucocorticoid deficiency

Banerjee Indraneel , Patel Leena , Fullwood Catherine , Hird Beverly , Chawla Meghna , Tetlow Lesley , Rezai Mohammad

Importance: Current practice of doubling or trebling the basal glucocorticoid (GC) replacement dose during acute illnesses in children and young people (CYP) with GC deficiency is extrapolated from research in adults and not based on robust evidence. Endogenous cortisol levels during acute illnesses in CYP without GC deficiency can provide insight for optimal GC stress dosing for CYP with GC deficiency.Objective: To summ...
