Evaluation of Bone Health in Adolescents and Young Adults After Allogeneic Human Stem Cell Transplantation in Childhood: A Single Center Cross-Sectional Study

De Waele Kathleen , Tack Lloyd , Bordon Victoria , Van Lancker Sophie , Dhooge Catharina , Cools Martine

Introduction: Hormonal deficits are well known complications after allogeneic human stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT) in childhood and treated according to existing guidelines. It is assumed that bone mass and strength accrual during puberty is also often impaired, due to toxic therapy and prolonged inactivity, but data on bone geometry and strength are scare in this particular group.Objective/Patients and Methods: Cr...

Opioid-Induced Endocrinopathy in a Toddler with Chronic Codeine Intoxication

Van Aken Sara , Van Der Straaten Saskia , De Waele Kathleen , Cools Martine , Craen Margarita , De Schepper Jean

Background: Several studies in adults have provided evidence for opioid-induced hypofunction of the hypothalamo-pituitary–adrenal and GH–IGF1 axis after chronic (oral and intrathecal) administration. This so-called opioid endocrinopathy has not been reported in children.Objective and hypotheses: We report the occurrence of delayed growth with low serum IGF1 levels and recurrent hypoglycemia due to central hypocorticism in a toddler after a pres...

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing, body composition and metabolic status in young adults after allogeneic human stem cell transplantation for hematological malignancy in childhood

De Waele Kathleen , Tack Lloyd , Coomans Ilse , Dhooge Catharina , Bordon Victoria , Toye Kaatje , Cools Martine , Vandekerckhove Kristof

Introduction: Well-known long-term complications of alloHSCT in childhood include endocrine system damage and secondary malignancies. In addition, adults surviving childhood alloHSCT are at risk of cardiovascular (CV) and metabolic disturbances. Long-term data of physical fitness in correlation with metabolic status are scarce in this particular group.Objective/Patients and Methods: Cross-sectional investigation of exerc...

Background: Adolescence is often a period of worse metabolic control and less wellbeing in diabetic children. We studied global (GW) and diabetic-related (DRW) wellbeing in diabetic adolescents and the influence of sex, age, ethnic origin, family composition (single- or two-parent family), family income and metabolic control.Method: 133 (71 girls, 120 autochthonous, 20 treated with CSII, 107 from a two-parent family, 68 from families with a monthly incom...

The ZOMATRIP Study: 4 Year Combination Therapy of GH and GnRHa in Girls with a Short Predicted Adult Height During Early Puberty: Interim Results at the End of the Treatment Phase

Background: A combination of GH and a GnRH agonist is sometimes used to improve adult height in children with a poor height prediction, only few studies support this.Study design: In this multicenter study, 24 short girls in early puberty, with a bone age below 12.0 years, an adult height prediction below 151.0 cm and normal body proportions were treated with GH (Zomacton) transjections 50 μg/kg per day and triptorelin (Decapeptyl) i.m. (3.75 mg/mon...

Background: A combination of GH and a gonadotropin releasing hormone analogue (GnRH a) is hypothesized to improve adult height in children with a poor adult height prediction.Study design: In this multicenter study, 24 girls in early puberty (bone age ≤12.0 y),with a predicted adult height ≤151.0 cm and normal body proportions were treated with GH (Zomacton) 50 μg/kg per day and triptorelin (Gonapeptyl) 3.75 mg/month SC or IM (for 4 year...

Background: Bilateral testicular regression (BTR) is characterized by the absence of both testicles in a newborn male or shortly thereafter, and presenting as bilateral cryptorchidism with undetectable AMH levels and the absence of Müllerian structures on pelvic ultrasound. Depending on when the regression occurs during fetal development, the condition can be associated with a micropenis. Few studies have explored the etiology and long-term outcome of BTR...

Introduction: The diagnosis and treatment of patients with rare diseases is often difficult as most clinicians do not encounter them. Therefore, centralization and collaboration between centers of expertise is necessary. European Reference Networks (ERN’s) such as RareEndoERN provide a platform for this, with one of its main thematic groups having a specific focus on rare growth and obesity disorders. Genetic obesity encompasses a heterogeneous group of c...

Background: Genetic defects in NKX2.1 (chromosome 14q13) are associated with hypothyroidism, choreo-athetotic movements and respiratory distress, known as the “Brain-Lung-Thyroid syndrome”.Objective and hypotheses: To identify the genetic basis of a disorder compatible with the “NKX2.1 syndrome” and extra features outside the typical triad.Patients and methods: 10-year old girl with congenital ...

An Incidental Finding of Thyroid Hormone Resistance Due to a De Novo Mutation in the THRB Gene

Averbuch Noa Shefer , França Monica , Lazar Liora , Tenenbaum Ariel , Phillip Moshe , de Vries Liat

Background: Thyroid hormone resistance (THR) is a rare genetic disorder that may be caused by thyroid hormone (TH) cell transporter defects or metabolism defects, but most cases are caused by an inherited mutation in the TH receptor beta (THRB) gene. The reduced responsiveness of target tissues to TH is characterized by elevated TH and a normal or elevated thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) level. Differentiating between THR and TSH-producing pituitary...
