The accumulation of adipose tissue, especially visceral fat, represents a risk factor for reduced bone mineral density and spontaneous fractures. Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain the complex relationship between adipose tissue and bone. Obesity is associated with the production of inflammatory cytokines both by adipocytes and immune cells which may stimulate bone resorption and reduce bone strength. Studies in vitro and in vivo have reported t...

Maganna Maria , Katsa Maria Efthymia , Ioannidis Anastasios , Zyga Sofia , Tsironi Maria , Sachlas Athanasios , Routsi Kleopatra , Dolianiti Loukia , Rojas Gil Andrea Paola

Background: Apoptosis is a programmed sequence of events towards cell death. Blood vessels employ apoptosis for remodeling during development and to maintain homeostasis during adulthood. The atherosclerotic process begins in early childhood and is correlated with obesity and metabolic disorders.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the correlation of apoptotic marker Apo-1/Fas with children’s biochemical and anthropometric characteristics.<p...

Background: The DNA-binding High Mobility Group Box-1 (HMGB1) is an intracellular gene regulator that can be secreted also in response to inflammatory mediators, including interleukins, binding subsequently to both RAGE and Toll-like receptors forming a self-reinforcing inflammatory circle. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a condition characterized by chronic inflammation. Elevated serum HMGB1 concentrations were described in serum of obese children and to be associated with the metabo...

Background: Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) in females is an uncommon and heterogeneous condition. There is little data regarding biochemical profile of gonadotropins to further substantiate the diagnosis.Objective: To evaluate the gonadotropaic secretion profile after GnRH infusion in a female cohort diagnosed with HH.Patients and methods: GnRH iv infusion test (0–120 min) were performed in 17 patients (17.5±2.3 years...

Background: Gonadal function is altered up to 25% in patients who suffered cancer in childhood. Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue (COT) is an option for preserving fertility.Aims and objective: To establish the prevalence of primary hypogonadism (PH) in children with cancer after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). To analyse the variables that predict progression to PH.Methods: Retrospective cohort study. Patients aged 0 to...

Due to the increase in prevalence of childhood obesity, more obese children are referred to the endocrinologist for the hypothalamus-hypophysis-adrenal axis assessment. The circadian rhythm (CR) of cortisol in saliva (SAF) may constitute a non-invasive, first line test to exclude hypercortisolism on obese children.Aim: To evaluate possible disturbances of CR of SAF in obese children with clinical signs of hypercortisolism.<p class="a...

Increased height and IGF1 serum levels in children with non-neurofibromatosis type 1 gliomas

Introduction: Gliomas are the most common solid tumours during childhood. In children with neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) and optic pathway glioma (OPG), growth hormone excess has been described. However, this phenomenon has not been reported in children with OPG without NF1. We aimed to describe the growth and IGFs/IGFBP3 levels in a large cohort of paediatric patients with non-NF1- associated central nervous system (CNS) tumours.Method...

Cerebral aneurysms and kidney disease in a child with microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II: novel homozygous mutation in the PCNT gene.

Petraroli Maddalena , Percesepe Antonio , Piane Maria , Gnocchi Margherita , Messina Giulia , Lattanzi Claudia , D'alvano Tiziana , Dora Patianna Viviana , Ormitti Francesca , Maria Roberta Esposito Susanna , Elisabeth Street Maria

MOPD is known to be caused by homozygous loss-of-function mutations in a specific gene, PCNT. Both intra- and interfamilial clinical variability (even for the same variant) have been frequently observed, which makes it difficult to infer a genotype–phenotype correlation. Pericentrin (PCTN) is a structural protein expressed in the centrosome that plays a fundamental role in anchoring protein complexes, regulating mitotic cycle and thus cell proliferation. High levels of m...
