An 11-year-old boy with Klinefelter syndrome had Castleman disease (CD) of plasma cell type develop. Nonregulated antibody production mimicked systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection caused significant disease worsening. The patient was treated with a daily dosage of 2 million units/m2 of IFN-alpha. Dramatic clinical(More)
The genetically determined acetylator phenotype in diabetic children with and without increased urinary albumin excretion was investigated. Acetylator phenotype was determined according to Evans, and 24-hour albumin excretion rate (AER) was measured by immunoturbidometry in 86 children and adolescents with type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus and in(More)
Precocious adrenarche is defined as the development of pubic hair before the age of 8 years in girls and 9 years in boys. Pubarche caused premature adrenarche in girls has been considered as a normal variant of pubertal development for years. Recently, it is cleared that premature pubarche can be considered as a marker of increased risk for endocrine and(More)
In the present study the effect of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor captopril was studied in normotensive diabetic children and adolescents with persistent microalbuminuria (repeated albumin excretion rate higher than 30 mg/24 h). In 1993/1994, 15 microalbuminuric patients (age: 10-17 yrs, diabetes duration: 6.5 +/- 3.0 yrs) had been treated with(More)
The aims of the present study were to investigate the relationship between severe hypoglycaemia and autonomic dysfunction in diabetic children, and to assess the glycaemic response to an insulin infusion test. In a one year period, 12 of 69 diabetic patients (17%) experienced at least one severe episode of hypoglycaemia, defined as an event which required(More)
It has been suggested previously that a decrease in urinary dopamine output might be related to a decrease in the urinary sodium excretion in subjects with diabetic nephropathy suffering from type 2 diabetes. To investigate the renal dopamine status in children with type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus, we measured the 24-hour urinary excretion of(More)
INTRODUCTION Polycystic ovary syndrome is associated with metabolic abnormalities, such as dyslipidemia, obesity, glucose intolerance, which are also components of the metabolic syndrome. Central obesity and insulin resistance appear to play an important role in the pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome, perhaps via subsequent steroidogenic(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of autonomic nervous system dysfunction on work capacity in children and adolescents with Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes. Fifteen patients with autonomic dysfunction (abnormal autonomic tests, age: 14.9 +/- 2.3 years), 35 patients without autonomic dysfunction (normal autonomic tests, age: 15.2(More)
The authors investigated the effect of growth hormone treatment on 20 Turner syndrome patients. The aim was to assess glucose and insulin responses to oral glucose loading in 9 prepubertal and 11 pubertal patients with Turner syndrome. Thirty eight healthy subjects matched for chronological age and BMI were selected as controls. Similar glucose responses(More)
To establish whether impaired hypoglycaemic awareness is associated with increased rate of severe hypoglycaemia and to assess clinical predictors of severe episodes without warning symptoms a prospective study of 130 insulin-dependent diabetic children and adolescents was undertaken for 1 year. Using a structured questionnaire, 48 patients reported impaired(More)
