Atypical presentation of acute suppurative thyroiditis in a 6 year old child.

Liapi Maria , Möllers Martin , Feldkamp Joachim , Jorch Norbert

Bacterial infection of the thyroid gland (acute suppurative thyroiditis, AST) is a very rare condition, particularly in children, as the thyroid gland is extremely resistant to infection. AST presents with painful tender mass in the anterior neck and is usually associated with fever, sore throat, dysphagia and limitation of the neck movements. In the most cases the left globe is affected. Common laboratory findings are leukocytosis, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR...

What do lipids tell us about the pandemic?

Campagnoli Myrna P , Lima Eloise M R , Cavalli Luana ,

The pandemic has changed habits in families around the world. Eating habits and physical activity were directly impacted by social distance. The first year of the pandemic left its mark on childrenÂ’s health. The purpose of this analysis was to evaluate the relationship between the first year of the pandemic and the serum lipid profile in children who underwent lab tests in a private laboratory in Curitiba-PR.Methods: Observational a...

Random Luteinizing Hormone Concentrations for Monitoring Central Precocious Treatment Efficacy

Zeitler Philip , M. Boldt-Houle Deborah , N. Atkinson Stuart

Background: A decrease in random LH concentration is observed after initiation of treatment for central precocious puberty (CPP), but the suitability of random LH concentrations for assessing efficacy is controversial. Although Neely et al. reported that random LH values frequently fail to demonstrate suppression to prepubertal levels,1 Lee et al. demonstrated that a cutoff of random LH <0.6 IU/l may be adequate for monitoring s...

Isodicentric Y Chromosomes in Patients with Disorders of Sex Development

M Selveindran Nalini , SL Wong Jeanne , Hong YH Janet

Introduction: Isodicentric Y chromosome[idic(Y)] is one of the most common structural abnormalities of the Y chromosome and has been observed in patients with disorders of sexual development. Most idic(Y) chromosomes are found in mosaic form with a 45, X cell line.Methods: The aim of this study was to investigate the genotype and phenotype variability of patients with idic(Y). The clinical data from five patients was ext...

Eating Behavior and Oxytocin in Childhood-onset Craniopharyngioma Patients: An Exploratory Study

Daubenbüchel Anna M. , Özyurt Jale , Warmuth-Metz Monika , Eveslage Maria , Müller Hermann L.

Background: Childhood-onset craniopharyngioma patients (CP) often suffer from tumor or treatment-related hypothalamic lesions (HL). These lesions may alter production of oxytocin, which plays a major role in the regulation of eating behavior and body composition.Objective: In CP with different degrees HL, we investigated associations between HL, eating behavior/eating attitudes, and oxytocin saliva concentrations (OSC).<...

Investigation of Oxidative Effect in Saliva and Gingival Groove Fluids in Children with Hashimoto Thyroiditis

Atar Müge , Tan Aykut , Yetkin Ay Zuhal , Atar Müge , Pirgon Özgür

The aim of this study was to determine the periodontal health status in patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT) and investigate the gingival groove fluid and saline oxidative stress parameters in order to demonstrate their relationship.Method: 30 patients between the ages of 11-17 years and 30 healthy volunteers aged between 10-17 years were included in the study. Serum tT4, TSH, anti-TPO, glucose, insulin, ALT, triglyceride, total chol...

Management of Tracheobronchomalacia During Asfotase Alfa Treatment in Infants with Perinatal-onset Hypophosphatasia: A Case Series

Padidela Raja , Yates Rob , Benscoter Dan , McPhail Gary , Chan Elaine , Nichani Jaya , Mughal M Zulf , Saal Howard M

Background: Hypophosphatasia (HPP) is a rare, inherited metabolic disease caused by loss-of-function mutations in the gene encoding tissue nonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP), resulting in hypomineralisation of bone. HPP presenting <6 months of age is often lethal due to respiratory insufficiency, with survival of 42% at 1 year. Asfotase alfa, a human recombinant TNSALP replacement, promotes bone mineralisation, with survival of 95% at 1 year in infants with HPP....

Improved Health-related Quality of Life with Insulin Therapy in Children with Cystic Fibrosis-related Diabetes: a Prospective Cohort Study

George Sherly , Hoey Hilary M C V , Costigan Colm , Murphy Nuala , Roche Edna F , O'Riordan Stephen M P

Background: Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) is a common complication in cystic fibrosis (CF). CFRD symptoms and treatment may impose additional burden and adversely affect their QoL.Objective and hypotheses: Assess HRQoL in CF children with normal glycaemia (CFN) and CFRD and evaluate the change in HRQoL over 1 year period along with clinical changes.Method: A prospective study was undertaken including children aged 10&#150...

46, XX Ovotesticular Disorder of Sex Development: Potential Role of 13q31.1

Girardin Celine M , Dirlewanger Mirjam , Bena Frederique , Nef Serge , Rougemont Anne-Laure , Birraux Jacques , Schwitzgebel Valerie M

Background: The origins of 46,XX ovotesticular DSD remains unclear in the majority of the cases. New genetic tools can help identifying genes and loci involved in gonadal development and differentiation.Objective and hypotheses: We report the results of the genetic investigations performed in a 15 years old African adolescent with SRY-negative 46,XX ovotesticular DSD.Method: Clinical evaluation, imaging studies, surgical exploratio...

Mackinder M , Wong S C , Tsiountsioura M , Shepherd S , Buchanan E , Edwards C , Ahmed S F , Gerasimidis K

Objective: To evaluate musculoskeletal development using pQCT in children with coeliac disease (CD) on gluten free diet (GFD) compared with age and gender matched healthy controls.Method: Prospective cross sectional study. 38 children (18 males) with CD on GFD for a duration of 3.6 years (0.6, 12.5) and 38 age and sex matched healthy controls underwent pQCT at 4, 38 and 66% tibial sites. Bloods were collected in CD children only. Results reported as medi...
