Long-term Teriparatide (rhPTH) Treatment in Children with Syndromic Hypoparathyroidism

Buganza Raffaele , Tuli Gerdi , Matarazzo Patrizia , Tessaris Daniele , De Sanctis Luisa

Background: Hypoparathyroidism is characterized by absence or inadequately low circulating concentrations of parathyroid hormone, resulting in hypocalcaemia, hyperphosphataemia and elevated fractional excretion of calcium in the urine. The use of activated vitamin D analogues and calcium supplements are recommended as the primary therapy. To avoid vitamin D and calcium side effects, subcutaneous recombinant human parathormone [rhPTH (1-34)] has been proposed f...

Plasma Copeptin Distribution in the Pediatric Age: A Useful Diagnostic Tool for AVP-Related Disorders

Tuli Gerdi , Tessaris Daniele , Buganza Raffaele , Matarazzo Patrizia , De Sanctis Luisa

Introduction: Copeptin is a stable AVP surrogate, secreted in equimolar relationship, who has been proposed for the diagnosis of AVP-related hypo and hypernatremic disorders, i.e. the syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretions (SIADH), the cerebral/renal salt wasting syndrome (C/RSW) and diabetes insipidus (DI). Few data exist about the normal ranges for plasma copeptin levels in the pediatric age, reported between 2.4-8.6 pmol/L. The aim of this study is to rep...

Off-label Use of Vaptans in Children with Severe Symptomatic Hyponatremia due to SIADH

Tuli Gerdi , Tessaris Daniele , Di Taranto Serena , Giorgis Alberto , Einaudi Silvia , Matarazzo Patrizia

Background: Vaptans, vasopressin receptor 2 antagonist, are used in adults to treat hyponatremia associated with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, and the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH). To date, in paediatric patients with SIADH there are few data about use of vaptans, still considered off-label.Case presentation 1: A 9-yo female with surgically treated suprasellar astrocitoma developed chronic hyponatremia (121–128 mmol/...

"Lympocyte population in children and adolescents affected by Graves’ disease. Potential predictive tool of disease severity"

Tuli Gerdi , Munarin Jessica , Tessaris Daniele , Matarazzo Patrizia , De Sanctis Luisa ,

Introduction: Graves-Basedow disease (GD) is the most common cause of thyrotoxicosis in pediatric age. Multi-factorial pathogenesis stand on the basis of the autoimmune disorder activation, leading to lymphocyte imbalance that include increased CD4+ and CD8+ subtypes, increased CD4+/CD8+ ratio and B cells dysregulation. The aim of this study is to determine the potential prognostic value of lymphocyte population parameters in pediatric GD.<p class="abstext...

“Screening for congenital hypothyroidism in preterm newborns: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) percentiles for weight and gestational age and congenital hypothyroidism features”

Gerdi Tuli , Jessica Munarin , Kristela Topalli , Daniele Tessaris , Patrizia Matarazzo , Luisa De Sanctis

Background: Preterm newborns (PN) are at risk of developing congenital hypothyroidism (CH) with a high reported incidence (1:300 vs 1:2000 for at term newborns). The study's objective was to determine the TSH percentiles at neonatal screening (NS) in PN and to analyze the incidence of permanent and transient CH in this population.Materials and Methods: PN born in the Piedmont Region of Italy in the period 2019-2021 ...
