Evaluation of Bone Geometry, Quality, and Bone Markers in Children with Type 1 Diabetes

Longhi Silvia , Franceschi Roberto , Cauvin Vittoria , Gallo Giuseppe , Lupi Fiorenzo , Reinstadler Petra , Radetti Giorgio

Background: Several studies have examined the relationship between type 1 diabetes and bone mass, which reported contradictory data on BMD, bone remodelling markers, and bone quality. Nevertheless an incresead prevalence of osteopenia was observed among patients with duration of disease of >6 years.Objective and hypotheses: The aim of the study was to investigate the potential negative impact of type 1 diabetes on bone status in a group of children w...

Cleidocranial Dysplasia Misdiagnosed as Rickets in Three Generations

Franceschi Roberto , Maines Evelina , Fedrizzi Michela , Rosaria Piemontese Maria , Bellizzi Maria , Cauvin Vittoria , Di Palma Annunziata

Background: Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD; MIM 119600) is a rare congenital autosomal dominant skeletal dysplasia characterized by hypoplastic or aplastic clavicles, late closure of the fontanelles, open skull sutures, dental anomalies, moderately short stature and a variety of other skeletal features. CCD is caused by mutations, deletions or duplications in the runt-related transcription factor 2 gene (RUNX2), which encodes for a protein essential for osteoblast differentiatio...

Congenital Hypothyroidism Screening Program: the Costa Rican Experience

Bogarin Roberto

Background: The term congenital hypothyroidism was introduced more than 60 years ago when Radwin et al. first described children with hypothyroid-associated features of severe intellectual disability and growth retardation. It is the most common endocrine congenital disorder and preventable cause of mental retardation. Newborn screening programs are an efficient tool for the secondary prevention of mental retardation associated with untreated congenital hypothyroidism...

Shox Haploinsufficiency in Short and Not Short Children: A Sigle Italian Cetre Data

Maggio Maria Cristina , Ragusa Saveria Sabrina , Miceli Roberto , Corsello Giovanni

SHOX haploinsufficiency (SHOX-D) is a cause of disharmonic short stature and a possible genetic cause of idiopathic short stature also in familial cases. We describe clinical, hormonal and genetic characteristics of patients with SHOX-D haploinsufficiency, followed and treated in the period 2014–2017, in a single Italian centre. The Rappold score was used to screen short children, to select those who needed a genetic analysis of SHOX gene by MLPA and sequencing. We select...

Microduplication of 3p25.3 and 4p23 Regions in a Patient with Multiple Congenital Anomalies, Congenital Hypothyroidism and Adrenogenital Syndrome

Barreca Massimo , Scavone Maria , Giancotti Laura , Colao Emma , Miniero Roberto

We report the case of a seven-year-old boy, unicogenised child, born at 33w, PN 1,540 Kg, (APGAR 8-10), hospitalized in neonatology unit for 30 days, invasive respiratory assistance was not necessary. At birth evidence of hypospadias with penile incurvation, oval fossa pervia, corpus callosum agenesis. Normal male karyotype. For positivity to screening for IC (in-situ normal thyroid), started L-Thyroxine therapy. When he was six the phenotype showed broad forehead, down-slant...

Hypertension During GNRH Analogues Therapy in a 10-year-old Girl

Barreca Massimo , Carboni Elena , Scavone Maria , Giancotti Laura , Miniero Roberto

We report a case of a 10-year-old girl born at 41st week and spontaneous birth, in therapy with analogous GnRH for idiopathic central puberty. At 4 years bilateral thelarche, performed first and second level investigations and recives diagnosis of early idiopathic central puberty. Since then, therapy with triptorelin 3.75 mg i.m every 21 days was administrated. Regular checks, good compliance, and response to therapy. At 10 years old recurring episodes of headache and vertigo....

Objectives: Several different pathogenic mechanisms may converge on a final common pathway to produce the phenotype of delayed pubertal timing. In our cohort of patients with familial self-limited delayed puberty (DP) we have demonstrated mutations in IGSF10 leading to mis-regulation of the embryonic migration of GnRH neurons (Howard et al, EMBO MM 2016). We aimed to discover novel genetic mutations in pathways regulating GnRH neuronal migration and developme...

Liver UPR and Metabolic Consequences in an Animal Model of Intrauterine Growth Retardation (IUGR)

Deodati Annalisa , Argemi JosepMaria , Puglianiello Antonella , Germani Daniela , Ferrero Roberto , Aragon Tomas , Cianfarani Stefano

Background: Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the site where proteins are folded in the cell. Metabolic stress alters ER homeostasis and activates the unfolded protein response (UPR), which contributes to the development of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.Objective and hypotheses: To longitudinally evaluate liver UPR and its functional consequences in an animal model of IUGR followed from birth to adulthood.Method: On day 19 ...

Physical Exercise Level is Associated to Peak Bone Mass in Undergraduate Students

Vargas Deisi Maria , Dominoni Robson Luiz , Nunes Carlos Roberto Oliveira , Sousa Clovis Arlindo

Background: Promotion of high pick bone mass is one of the strategies to prevent osteoporosis in adult life. Undergraduate students are still in the age group of mineral acquisition and, therefore, their lifestyle may influence this process. Physical exercise is an important lifestyle characteristic for optimize peak bone mass (PBM).Objective: To evaluate bone mass in undergraduate students with different lifestyle.Methods: Observa...
