Background: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is characterized by cortisol deficiency and hyperandrogenism. Both hyperandrogenism and treatment with supraphysiological doses of glucocorticoids may cause unfavorable changes in the cardiovascular risk profile of CAH patients. Data on the cardiac function in CAH patients is scarce.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate the cardiac function in pediatric CAH patients.Method: The cardi...

Pediatric Patients with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia have Unfavorable Changes in their Cardiovascular Risk Profile

Mooij Christiaan F. , van Herwaarden Antonius E. , Roeleveld Nel , de Korte Chris L. , Kapusta Livia , Claahsen - van der Grinten Hedi L.

Background: Patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) are at risk of developing an unfavorable cardiovascular risk (CVR) profile. Data on the CVR profile in pediatric CAH patients are scarce.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate the CVR profile of pediatric CAH patients.Method: A cross-sectional study in CAH patients (8–16 years) was performed (n=27). Blood was taken to evaluate several circulating CVR marker...

Background: Thyroidectomy is a definitive treatment option in some benign thyroid disorders and the definitive treatment option for thyroid cancer. As postoperative mortality is extremely rare data on postoperative complications and long-term health consequences are important.Objective: To evaluate the frequencies of short- and long-term complications, and their risk factors in pediatric patients (0-18 years) who underwent a thyroidectomy in a tertiary c...

Context: Children with 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21OHD) require chronic glucocorticoid administration to substitute glucocorticoids and suppress adrenocorticotropic hormone-induced hyperandrogenemia. There is still no evidence about the best timing of the highest hydrocortisone (HC) dose. Administration of the highest dose in the morning aims to mimic the physiological rhythm of cortisol, while a high dose late in the evening may inhibit the early-morning inc...
