INTRODUCTION The aim of the study is to determine whether serum concentrations of interleukin (IL)-1and IL-6 correlate with indices of bone mineral metabolism in children with idiopathic osteoporosis and osteopenia. MATERIAL/METHODS The study comprised 62 patients aged 6-18 years (20 with idiopathic osteoporosis, 22 with idiopathic osteopenia, and 20(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether the serum concentration of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) correlates with the occurrence of idiopathic osteoporosis in children, and whether serum levels of IGF-I correlate with selected bone metabolism markers in patients with osteoporosis. METHODS The study comprised 24 patients aged 7-18 years, including 12 with(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study is proteomic analysis of the plasma profile in children with recurrent bone fractures. The study involved 16 children: 6 patients with recurrent low-energy fractures and normal bone mass and 10 with osteogenesis imperfecta. In the analysis of the protein profile, the two-dimensional protein electrophoresis was used (Ettan(More)

BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to carry out a comprehensive analysis of determinants of multiple bone fractures in children with regard to densitometric indices and markers of bone metabolism. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study involved 112 children aged 5-18 years, including 81 patients with a history of at least 3 bone fractures and 31 healthy patients(More)
We present difficulties in prenatal diagnosis and treatment in newborns with brittle bone diseases type II and III. It has been noted that skeletal dysplasia can be recognised with fetal ultrasound examination. The methods of osteogenesis imperfecta infant care in the first day of life have been proposed.
UNLABELLED Fractures of long bone and ribs in the neonatal period may be expression of genetic disturbances of collagen type I production. The aim of the study was to present clinical symptoms, results of radiological, biochemical and densitometric examinations in 11 newborns with osteogenesis imperfecta type III. METHODS In all children accurate medical(More)
The analysis was performed of aetiological factors and clinical course of sepsis in children admitted to the Institute of Pediatrics of Medical University of Łódź in 1995-1998. Staphyloccocus epidermidis was the most frequently found pathogen in neonates, whereas Neisseria meningitidis in infants and children over 1 year. Candida sp. was responsible for 25%(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to determine whether the serum concentration of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and its binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) correlates with the mineral metabolism markers in children with idiopathic decrease in bone mass. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study comprised 62 patients aged 6-18 years, including 42 with idiopathic(More)
Angelman syndrome is a genetically inherited syndrome with severe retardation of psychomotor development and speech disturbances, usually accompanied by epilepsy, typical dysmorphic features, and some skeletal symptoms. The aim of the current report is to present new skeletal symptoms which may occur in the course of AS, based on a case report of an(More)
