Levy-Shraga Yael , Pinhas-Hamiel Orit , Ben Ami Michal , Yeshayahu Yonatan , Temam Vered , Cohen Rinat , Modan-Moses Dalit

Background: U.V. radiation exposure is the major environmental risk factor for skin cancers. However, sun avoidance leads to inadequate vitamin D levels which impair bone health. Moreover, numerous studies linked decreased sunlight exposure to non-skin cancer incidence or survival.Objective and hypotheses: To compare sun habits in a cohort of paediatric patients with a history of malignancy to healthy controls. We hypothesized that sun exposure will be d...

Background: Vitamin D3 (25OHD) insufficiency is becoming a public health issue. Adequate 25OHD status during pregnancy may influence the health status of the offspring.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate the levels of 25OHD during pregnancy (at 12 weeks) and at 4 years old, assessing seasonality, time of sun exposure, and intake.Method: Data were obtained from 485 pregnant mothers recruited in Asturias between 2004 and 2007 and t...

Kim Min Sun , Lee Dae-Yeol

Background: The IGF system is involved in the development of metabolic and cardiovascular disease. This study aimed to investigate the association of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1), IGF-binding protein-1 (IGFBP1) and IGFBP3 with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes in children.Methods: We included 36 children aged 10 to 16 years without known diabetes, medication, chronic disease. They were classified into three groups according to the results of ...

Deep Bronze Skin without Sun Exposition in a 16-Year Old Girl

Jasser-Nitsche Hildegard , Loffler Sabine , Suppan Elisabeth , Weinhandl Gudrun , Frohlich-Reiterer Elke

Introduction: Adrenal insufficiency (AI) leads to a diminished production of steroid hormones. AI is subdivided into a primary and a secondary form. In primary AI, the underlying defect affects the adrenal gland itself resulting in a low steroid production and an overproduction of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). On the contrary, the cause of secondary AI lies in the pituitary, leading to a reduced production of ACTH and consecutively to a reduced excretion of corticosteroi...

Regional Brain Volume and Luteinising Hormone in Girls with Idiopathic Central Precocious Puberty

Kim Eun Young , Park Shin Eui , Kim Min Sun

Background: During puberty, gray matter (GM) volume decreases and white matter (WM) volume increases in brain. It has been suggested that pubertal hormones may induce some neuroanatomical changes during puberty. Central precocious puberty (CPP) is caused by premature activation of the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis in inappropriately early age. However, little is known about the differences of brain structure (especially brain volume) in idiopathic CPP. Also the relation ...

Plasma 25-OH Vitamin D and pth Concentrations in Cord Blood: relationship with Ethnic Groups, Nutritional Habits and Degree of Maternal Sun Exposure

Ortigosa Gomez Sandra , Garcia Algar Oscar , Mur Sierra Antonio , Ferrer Costa Roser , Carrascosa Lezcano Antonio , Yeste Fernandez Diego

Introduction: Several studies showing a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in pregnant women have been published in recent years. Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy has been related to adverse events both in mother and child. Plasma 25-OH vitamin D (25(OH)D) levels in the newborn are dependent on maternal deposits and show a close correlation with maternal levels; thus, neonates of vitamin D-deficient mothers present a greater risk of hypocalcaemia, rickets and a highe...
