Background: Pseudohypoaldosteronism (PHA) is a rare heterogeneous syndrome of mineralocorticoid resistance. PHA type 1 (PHA1) is characterized by neonatal salt loss, failure to thrive, dehydration and circulatory shock. It includes two forms: renal (autosomal dominant), due to mutations in mineralocorticoid receptor coding gene NR3C2, and systemic (autosomal recessive), due to mutations in subunit genes of the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC). ENaC is constituted of three subu...

Thyroid nodules are rare in pediatric age with an incidence of 1.8–3%. However, the risk of thyroid cancer is much higher in the pediatric population compared with adults. Among the pediatric cancer survivors there is an increased risk of developing a secondary malignancy and the thyroid cancers account for about 10% of these secondary tumors. From 2004 to 2017, we have recruited 43 patients (22 females; 21 males) with thyroid nodules among a population who had presented ...

Introduction: This study describes the experience of introducing Nao, a humanoid robot, into a Summer Camp for children with diabetes (August 2013, Misano Adriatico, Italy), with the aim to provide them a companion capable to support and motivate. Our goal was to investigate if, Nao’s interactions with children could positively affect the adherence to specific medical recommendations during their stay. Namely children were asked to fill in a specific nutritional diary. Th...
