Soheilipour Fahimeh , Rahimzade Nahid , Jesmi Fatemeh , Pishgahroudsari Mohadeseh , Kaviani Sarah , Sadeghian Mahnaz , Almassinokiani Fariba

Background: Obesity ignites numerous health and psychosocial problems and is associated with various comorbidities. BMI is also independently associated with improved risk for numerous kidney disorders. As renal length is considered a vital parameter in the clinical assessment of renal patients, normal renal length has to be defined in accordance to BMI. The aim of this study is to define normal kidney length in obese children, comparing ultrasound measurements of the kidney l...

Syndromic Hypoketotic, Hypoinsulinemic Hypoglycaemia due to a Mosaic Activating Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase Mutation

Kummer Sebastian , Leiter Sarah M , Welters Alena , Barroso Ines , Meissner Thomas , Semple Robert K

Background: In contrast to hypoglycaemia due to congenital hyperinsulinism, there are patients with a similar metabolic profile of hypoketotic hypoglycaemia, but low insulin levels and relatively low glucose requirements to maintain euglycaemia. So far, four patients with activating mutations in the insulin signal-transducing kinase AKT2 have been described, each also showing a syndromic phenotype including hemihypertrophy.Objective and hypotheses: We pr...

Bone Mineral Density in Prader-Willi Females During the Transition Phase

Grugni Graziano , Fintini Danilo , Mazzilli Giuliana , Bocchini Sarah , Sartorio Alessandro , Crino Antonino

Background: Adult subjects with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) have low Bone Mineral Density (BMD) and are at risk of osteoporosis. Several observations suggest that peak bone mass is usually achieved by late adolescence, in the presence of adequate gonadal hormone concentrations. Consequently, the altered bone characteristics of PWS patients may be related to inadequate sex steroid levels during pubertal development.Aim: To investigate BMD in PWS females d...

Experience with Sleeve Gastrectomy in Adolescent Obese Subjects and in Prader-Willi Syndrome

Fintini Danilo , Bocchini Sarah , Caccamo Romina , Grugni Graziano , Cappa Marco , De Peppo Francesco , Crino Antonino

Background: Prader Willi syndrome (PWS) results from the loss of paternally imprinted genes on chromosome 15q11–15 and is characterized by neonatal hypotonia, short stature, hypogonadism, aggressive food-seeking behavior, hyperphagia, and obesity with difficult in losing weight only with nutritional approach.Objective and hypotheses: We report our experience on sleeve gastrectomy in PWS and obese subjects during 12 months of follow-...

Age at Menarche in Chronic Respiratory Disease: Cystic Fibrosis and Asthma – Comparison with a Large Cohort of Healthy Girls Living in Verona

Gaudino Rossella , Volpi Sonia , Ben Sarah Dal , Piona Claudia , Cavarzere Paolo , Boner Attilio , Antoniazzi Franco

Background: Menarche is a milestone in human sexual development as it denotes the achievement of fertility. Few studies have evaluated the age at menarche (AAM) in chronic respiratory disease.Objective: The main aim of this study is to investigate AAM and menarcheal determinants in girls affected by Cystic Fibrosis or Asthma, and to compare their AAM with healthy girls’ one.Subjects and method: The study was conducted on 1207 ...

Antimullerian Hormone and Inhibin B Markers of the Ovarian Reserve After Ovariectomy

Morandi Grazia , Piona Claudia Anita , Ben Sarah Dal , Ramaroli Diego , Cavarzere Paolo , Antoniazzi Franco , Gaudino Rossella

Background: Ovarian reserve is defined as the functional potential of the ovary, which reflects the number and quality of the follicles left in the ovary at any given time. In literature there studies about the evaluation of ovarian reserve after ovariectomy for tumors and cysts, using serum markers, such as inhibin-B, and anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH), combined to ultrasonographic markers, in adult women but none in peri-pubertal girls.Case presentation:...

Association between MRI Evidence of Hypothalamic Gliosis and Pubertal Development in Girls with Obesity

Chandrasekaran Suchitra , Sewaybricker Leticia , Kee Sarah , Melhorn Susan , Olerich Kelsey , Huang Alyssa , Schur Ellen ,

Early puberty is associated with obesity in young girls and has physical, psychosocial, and reproductive implications. In adults and children, MRI evidence of cellular inflammation in the mediobasal hypothalamus (MBH gliosis) is seen in obesity, and its anatomic location overlaps with key neuronal populations controlling reproduction, fertility, and feeding. We sought to assess whether MRI evidence of MBH gliosis associates with pubertal development in girls and if that differ...

Higher rates of non-skeletal complications in achondroplasia compared to the general population: a UK matched cohort study using the CPRD database

Pimenta Jeanne M. , Cheung Moira , Irving Melita , Mazzeo Louise , Landis Sarah , Mukherjee Swati ,

Objectives: Achondroplasia (ACH) is a rare, genetic skeletal dysplasia, resulting in impaired endochondral bone growth and leading to multisystem complications. We aimed to estimate rates of non-skeletal complications in ACH patients compared with general population controls.Methods: Retrospective cohort study using UK Clinical-Practice-Research-Datalink (CPRD-GOLD), identifying an ACH cohort. Study index date was define...

The efficacy and short- and long-term side effects of radioactive iodine treatment in pediatric Graves’ disease: a systematic review

Lutterman Sarah , Zwaveling-Soonawala Nitash , Verberne Hein , Verburg Frederik , van Trotsenburg Paul , Mooij Christiaan

Background: Graves’s disease (GD) is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. Maximal 30% of pediatric GD patients achieve remission with anti-thyroid drugs. The majority of patients therefore require definitive treatment. Both thyroidectomy and radioactive iodine (RAI) are often used as definitive treatment for GD. However, data on efficacy, and short- and long-term side effects of RAI treatment for pediatric GD are relatively scarce.Methods: A ...

Pedigree analysis is essential for clarifying oligogenic transmission in a family with congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (CHH)

Oberhauser Sarah , Papadakis G Georgios , Pitteloud Nelly , L’Allemand Dagmar ,

Background: Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (CHH) is a rare disease with a complex clinical picture and genetic background. In up to 50% genetic mutations are found. The goal is to be able to provide a comprehensive prognosis and genetic counseling for this family with CHH.Case presentation: At the age of 16 years a boy with familial constitutional delay (adrenarche only with 15 years, no growth spurt, bone age 14 years) present...
