  • Clinical Approach to Hypocalcemia in Newborn Period and Infancy: Who Should Be Treated? [Review]
    Int J Pediatr 2019; 2019:4318075Vuralli D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Since most infants with hypocalcemia are usually asymptomatic, serum total or ionized calcium levels must be monitored in preterm infants with a gestational age <32 weeks, small for gestational age infants, infants of diabetic mothers, and infants with severe prenatal asphyxia with a 1 min Apgar score of <4. The treatment of hypocalcemia should be initiated immediately in infants with reduced calcium levels while investigating the etiology.
  • Clinical and immunophenotypic characteristics of patients with chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome: a single institution's experience. [Journal Article]
    Turk Pediatri Ars 2019; 54(1):28-34Nepesov S, Aygün FD, … Camcıoğlu Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is a multi-systemic disorder that should be evaluated by a multidisciplinary team. It should be kept in mind for patients with neonatal hypocalcemic tetany or recurrent infections or atypical facial appearance with cardiac anomalies. Early diagnosis should lead to immunologic analysis and enable the choice of treatment. Preventive measures against infection is recommended for the patients with incomplete immunodeficiency, and thymus transplantation is recommended for patients with complete immunodeficiency.
  • A Framework for Approaching Refractory Hypocalcemia in Children. [Case Reports]
    Pediatr Ann 2019; 48(5):e208-e211Humphrey E, Clardy C
  • Hypocalcemia is a potentially fatal electrolyte imbalance with complications that include seizures, tetany, prolonged QT interval, cardiomyopathy, and congestive heart failure. In chi dren, persistent hypocalcemia can also be detrimental to bone growth and health. Therefore, it is important to recognize the many ways this electrolyte imbalance may present and determine its etiology. This article …
  • Hypercalcitoninaemia in pseudohypo-parathyroidism type 1A and type 1B. [Journal Article]
    Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2019; 2019Yavropoulou MP, Chronopoulos E, … Yovos JG
  • Pseudohypoparathyroidism (PHP) is a heterogeneous group of rare endocrine disorders characterised by normal renal function and renal resistance to the action of the parathyroid hormone. Type 1A (PHP1A), which is the most common variant, also include developmental and skeletal defects named as Albright hereditary osteodystrophy (AHO). We present two cases, a 54- and a 33-year-old male diagnosed wi…
  • Spot the silent sufferers: A call for clinical diagnostic criteria for solar and nutritional osteomalacia. [Review]
    J Steroid Biochem Mol Biol 2019; 188:141-146Uday S, Högler W
  • Osteomalacia and rickets result from defective mineralization when the body is deprived of calcium. Globally, the main cause of osteomalacia is a lack of mineral supply for bone modeling and remodeling due to solar vitamin D and/or dietary calcium deficiency. Osteomalacia occurs when existing bone is replaced by unmineralized bone matrix (osteoid) during remodeling in children and adults, or when…
