Development of Severe Obesity in a Children with a Brainstem Tumor

Pihoker Catherine , Roth Christian

The homeostatic control of energy balance is tightly regulated. Appetite and energy expenditure regulation involves neurons in the hypothalamus as well as other brain regions, including the limbic system, amygdala and the brainstem. Hypothalamic obesity is a well-recognized consequence of lesions such as craniopharyngiomas and other tumors in the hypothalamic region. Less known is obesity related to tumors in other brain regions. The child presented at 14 years of age with fai...

Pediatric Stroke as the Presenting Symptom of New Onset Diabetes without DKA

Bharill Sonum , Constantacos Cathrine

Introduction: Neurologic symptoms, such as cerebral edema, stroke, and extrapontine myelinolysis, are rare in pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) in the absence of severe diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) or chronically poor glycemic control. Ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke may account for 10% of intracerebral complications of DKA. DKA increases the risk for neurovascular compromise by several proposed mechanisms, including dehydration, hyperosmolarity, tissue hyp...

Their diagnosis may be difficult when a coexistence of other diseases masks the typical clinical and biochemical manifestations of TSH-hypersecretion.Objective: To report a case of a TSH-adenoma without signs/symptoms of hyperthyroidism due to underlying autoimmune thyroid disease.Results: Patient is a 17 year old male who ...
