Partenope Cristina , Gallo Dario , Damia Chiara Maria , Adavastro Marta , Fioretti Lorenzo , Pitea Marco , Weber Giovanna , Pozzobon Gabriella

Aggrecan, encoded by ACAN, is a major proteoglycan component in the extracellular matrix of the growth plate. At least 25 pathological ACAN mutations have been identified in patients with highly variable phenotypes of syndromic or non-syndromic short stature. A 6-year-old boy was referred to our Centre for short stature (height 103.60 cm, −3.14 SDS) in familial short stature. Mid-Parental target height was 161.15 cm (−2.38 SDS); His father (height 167.3 cm) is from...

The patient was referred to our Centre for short stature. Weight and length at birth were within normal limits. In the neonatal period he showed jaundice and hypoglycemia. A reduced growth velocity was reported from the age of six months. At 15 months his length was 70 cm (−3.75 SDS), his weight 8.1 kg (−2.26 SDS). Parental target height was 167.6 cm (−1.38 SDS). He had normal psychomotor development. The examination showed macrocrania and nasal voice. Blood ...

Two Identical Twins … But not in Everything. A Difficult Diagnosis

Damia Chiara Maria , Gallo Dario , Partenope Cristina , Pitea Marco , Fioretti Lorenzo , Adavastro Marta , Pajno Roberta , Weber Giovanna , Barera Graziano

GR and GT are diamniotic monochorial preterm twins (32 GA), both AGA (GR: W -1 SDS, L -1.5 SDS; GT: W and L 0 SDS), with normal karyotype and array-CGH on amniotic fluid, with no major complications associated to prematurity. At birth GT presented bilaterally cryptorchidism associated with micropenis, GR presented normal male genitalia. In the first year of life a severe growth deceleration in length (from -3SDS to -5 SDS) was observed, mainly after six months of life in both ...

Fuentes-Bolanos Noemi , Dolores Martin Salvago Maria , Martinez Moya Gabriela , del Toro Codes Marta , de la Cruz Moreno Jesus

Background: Mammary duct ectasia is a bening breast condition which affects primarily middle-aged to elderly women. However, it can occurs wherever there is breast ductal epithelium.Case presentation: A 9-years-old boy was referred to the regional paediatric endocrine clinic from the General Practicioner due to gynaecomastia. Pubic hair development started at the age of 8. Personal and family history were unremarkable except for a history of coping with ...

Risk factors for Atherosclerosis after Anticancer Treatment in Childhood: The Assessment of Lipid Parameters and Indicators of Susceptibility to Atherosclerosis in a Group of Pediatric Patients after Anticancer Treatment

Połubok Joanna , Jasielska Olimpia , Gonera Aleksandra , Kozicka Marta , Sęga-Pondel Dorota , Kazanowska Bernarda , Barg Barg

Introduction: Lipid disorders are a common complication of anticancer therapy. These disorders may be included in both the metabolic syndrome or also may be associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The aim of our study is to evaluate lipid profile in children after anticancer treatment.Materials and methods: Study group consisted of 44 patients (aged 3.25–16 years) with solid tumors, at least one year after cessation of anticancer t...

Usefulness of Growth Hormone Transient Treatment Suspension in Prepubertal Children Treated with Growth Hormone

Martinez Barahona Maria , Cecenarro Laura , Murillo Valles Marta , Luisa Granada Ybern M. , Ropero Ramos Esther , Bel Comos Joan

Background: The primary goal of treatment is to achieve a final height within the normal range and avoid the physical and psychological consequences of short stature (SS). If after a time, treatment efficacy criteria are not achieved, it is necessary to revalue its usefulness. There is no consensus about which conduct should be adopted in these cases. An alternative, is the suspension of rhGH treatment and evaluate the clinical and biochemical results to decide to continue or ...

HABP2 as Genetic Susceptibility Factor for Familial Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma

de Randamie Rajdee , Martos Gabriel , Lumbreras Cesar , Regojo Rita Maria , Mendiola Marta , Argente Jesus , Moreno Jose Carlos

Background: HABP2 is an extra-cellular matrix protein involved in cell proliferation. Recently, HABP2 was proposed as responsible for the familial clustering of Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma (FDTC). However, its involvement was questioned by subsequent studies revealing high prevalence HAPB2 polymorphisms (SNPs) in the general population, leaving its pathogenic role uncertain.Objective and hypotheses: To identify genetic HABP2</e...

Identification of a “Cryptic” De Novo Deletion in NKX2.1 in the Brain-Lung-Thyroid Syndrome using Genomic SNP Arrays

Villafuerte Beatriz , de Benito Daniel Natera , Lacamara Nerea , Garcia Marta , Lumbreras Cesar , de Randamie Rajdee , Nevado Julian , Moreno Jose Carlos

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 ...

Background: Severe GH deficiency (GHD) is associated with significant body composition abnormalities. However there is no data assessing initial body composition parameters in the children with partial GHD.Objective and hypotheses: Study objective was initial body composition assessment in the short stature children diagnosed for GHD.Method: 54 consecutively diagnosed for GHD short statured children (40 boys) in the mean age 10.83&...
