Background: Osteogenesis imperfecta / Ehlers–Danlos (OI/EDS) overlap syndrome is a rare and recently described disorder of connective tissue, characterized by mutation of COL1A1 (17q21.33) or COL1A2 (7q21.3) genes, involved in alpha-1 and alpha-2 chains of type 1 collagen synthesis. Patients with OI/EDS overlap syndrome could show a phenotype characterized by features of both osteogenesis imperfecta (bone fragility, long bone fractures, blue sclerae, sho...

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: 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...

Background: Foramen magnum stenosis (FMS) is a life-threatening complication in children with achondroplasia (ACH) which may require cervicomedullary decompression (CMD). There is no evidence if FMS and CMD affects growth in children with ACH.Aim: To evaluate the impact of FSM and CMD surgery on anthropometric measurements in children with ACH.Methods: Sixty-five patients with ACH ...
