Bilateral Adrenal Hemorrhage As a Cause of Pediatric Acute Abdominal Pain

Gil Poch Estela , Javier Arroyo Díez Francisco

Introduction: Bilateral adrenal hemorrhage is a rare pathology, contrary to what happens with unilateral ones. It is more common in newborns and associated with situations of perinatal hypoxia, sepsis, traumatic births, or coagulation abnormalities. The classic triad includes jaundice, anemia, and a flank mass, which can lead to severe shock. Extensive bilateral hemorrhage is required to produce a situation of adrenal insufficiency. The diagnosis is made by im...

Gil Margolis Merav , Lilos Pearl , Phillip Moshe , de Vries Liat

Introduction: Hypoglycemia is a significant cause of morbidity in children, yet is challenging to diagnose and treat due to its heterogeneity.Aim: To describe the diagnoses and clinical characteristics of children with hypoglycemia referred to a tertiary pediatric center.Methods: This retrospective study included 155 children (86 males, aged 0-18 years) diagnosed with hypoglycemia ...

Adrenal insufficiency is not a common cause of hypoglycemia in children

Gil Margolis Merav , Lilos Pearl , Phillip Moshe , de Vries Liat

Background: Hypoglycemia etiology in children is heterogeneous and varies by age. Both growth hormone (GH) and cortisol deficiencies may present with hypoglycemia; the latter may result in an adrenal crisis that may be fatal.Objectives: To evaluate responses of cortisol and GH to spontaneous hypoglycemia in infants and children, and to assess the rate of true cortisol deficiency in children, defined as cortisol<500 nm...

Plasma Tocopherols and Carotenes are Decreased in Spanish Children and Adolescents with Insulin Resistance, Independently of Obesity

Rupérez Azahara I. , Lozano Gloria Bueno , Leis Rosaura , Gil-Campos Mercedes , Gil Ángel , Moreno Luis A. , Mesa María D. , Aguilera Concepción M.

Introduction: Childhood obesity and insulin resistance (IR) are rising in prevalence, increasing the future adults' cardio-metabolic risk. One of the potential mechanisms behind these alterations is oxidative stress, fruit of increased free radical production and diminished antioxidant defense. Although low plasma vitamin concentrations and oxidative stress have been observed to be associated with obesity in adults and children, their association with IR i...

Early-Life Risk Factors and Their Association with Hypertension in Spanish Children and Adolescents

Perez-Gimeno Gloria , Ruperez Azhara I , Gil-Campos Mercedes , Leis Rosaura , Aguilera Concepcion M , Gil Angel , Moreno Luis A , Bueno-Lozano Gloria

Introduction: In the last years, the prevalence of high blood pressure (HBP) has increased in children, contributing to raise the risk of future cardiovascular disease. It is known that family history, pregnancy characteristics and type of feeding in the first months of life are of great importance in the prevention of diseases in the offspring. In this study we aimed to investigate the association between early life risk factors and HBP in children and adolescents.<p clas...

Clinical description of ten paediatric patients with rapid-onset obesity and clinical signs of ROHHAD-NET Syndrome

Aziz Mariana , Leske Vivian , Caminiti Carolina , Armeno Marisa , Ciaccio Marta , Gil Silvia

Rapid-onset obesity with central hypoventilation, hypothalamic, autonomic dysregulation (ROHHAD) syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by respiratory failure and autonomic dysregulation with endocrine abnormalities. Some of these patients could also present with neuroendocrine tumors (ROHHADNET).Aim: To evaluate the clinical, biochemical, treatments and outcome in a cohort of pediatrics patients with ROHHAD-NET syndrome follow in a s...

Clinical and immunological characteristics of new-onset type 1 diabetes in children during the COVID-19 pandemic

Gil Margolis Merav , Weizman Sarit , Lazar Liora , Yakobovich-Gavan Michal , Tenenbaum Ariel , Phillip Moshe , Oron Tal

Background: Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is a chronic disease resulting from autoimmune destruction of insulin-secreting pancreatic β cells. Viruses are known to play a role in the pathogenesis of T1D. There is no consistent evidence that SARS-CoV-2 induces T1D in children or adults. Nevertheless, evidence suggests that the SARS-CoV-2 affects β cell function, suggesting a role for the virus in the pathogenesis of the disease. It is thus plausible that the e...

Impact on metabolic control in pediatric patients with use of technology applied to type 1 diabetes

Gil Poch Estela , Babiano Benito Lucía , Javier Arroyo Díez Francisco

Background and Aims: The treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1D) requires a great involvement of the patient to achieve optimal blood glucose levels. Technological devices have been developed for individualized treatment, fewer interventions of the patient, and evidence of improved metabolic control. The aim of the study is to know data on metabolic control in a group of pediatric patients with T1D treated with new technologies, compared to patients treated with mu...

Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) as a Useful Tool for Early Diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Prediction of Metabolic Risks in Children and Adolescents

Kostopoulou Eirini , Tikka Maria , Rojas Gil Andrea Paola , Partsalaki Ioanna , Spiliotis Bessie

Objective: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus(T2DM)and obesity represent two major health hazards in children and adolescents, with rising prevalence. Several markers have been developed in order to diagnose T2DM and detect potential metabolic abnormalities.The objective of the study was to examine glucose tolerance in Greek children and adolescents and the differences in the glucose, insulin and c-peptide response curves between male and female children and adolescents...
