Metabolic disorders, although rare, can involve multiple organ systems and have a varied presentation. Renal involvement has been reported in several metabolic disorders in the pediatric age group. We report a rare metabolic disorder, long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, in a child who developed steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome at the age of 5 years. Renal biopsy showed features of collapsing glomerulopathy. The child had progressive chronic kidney disease. Alternative immunosuppressants including tacrolimus failed to show any clinical improvement...

Herein we report on laparoscopic donor hepatectomy (left lateral sectionectomy) for pediatric living donor liver transplantation by using a pure laparoscopic approach. Seven laparoscopic living donor procedures were performed during the period March 2016 to February 2017 at our institution. The average age of donors was 33.3 years. Preoperative liver function was normal in all donors. Four donors required 1 or more Pringle maneuver(s). The etiology was biliary atresia (n = 3), metabolic disorders (n = 2) (OTC deficiency), Alagille syndrome (n = 1), and neonatal ductopenia (n = 1)...

Metabolic liver diseases (MLD) are an important group of disorders presenting with neonatal cholestasis (NC). The spectrum of liver involvement is wide and the presumptive diagnosis is traditionally based on clinical and laboratory findings. Recently, next-generation sequencing (NGS) panels have emerged as an appealing tool to diagnose neonatal/infantile cholestatic disorders. The aim of this study was to identify clinical phenotypes of liver injury and contribute to find a diagnostic methodology that integrates new molecular diagnostic tools...

Pediatric obesity-related metabolic syndrome (MetS) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are increasingly frequent conditions with a still-elusive diagnosis and low-efficacy treatment and monitoring options. In this study, we investigated the salivary metabolomic signature, which has been uncharacterized to date. In this pilot-nested case-control study over a transversal design, 41 subjects (23 obese patients and 18 normal weight (NW) healthy controls), characterized based on medical history, clinical, anthropometric, and laboratory data, were recruited...

Background Diabetes and hepatosteatosis are dramatically increasing in childhood. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is defined as a common disorder in adulthood, especially with type-2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, while very few studies are available on liver health in children with type-1 diabetes. Patients and methods One hundred and ten (52 males and 58 females) patients with type-1 diabetes aged between 8 and 18 years were examined. The lipid profile, liver enzymes and hepatobiliary ultrasound findings of patients were investigated in terms of hepatopathies...

Background: Pediatric movement disorders represent a diagnostic challenge for pediatricians and pediatric neurologists due to their high clinical heterogeneity and shared common features. Therefore, specific diagnoses require different approaches including metabolic work-up and specific tests for frequent genetic conditions. Alternating hemiplegia of childhood (AHC) is an ultra-rare pediatric movement disorder, characterized by paroxysmal alternating hemiplegia, dystonia, and seizure-like episodes that can be misleading during the evaluation of a child with a movement disorder...

In everyday practice, a pediatric endocrinologist will face a variety of different endocrine issues (such as short or tall stature, dysthyroidism, abnormal pubertal timing or impaired glucose metabolism), which relevantly contribute to the global care of a number of syndromic conditions. On the other hand, the presence of endocrine features may assist in the diagnostic process, leading to final diagnosis of a syndromic disorder. The intention of this review is to provide a referenced overview of different genetic syndromes characterized by endocrine features, and to present a possible classification, based on whether the endocrinopathy or the syndrome is typically recognized first...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic glycogenosis is characterized by excessive glycogen accumulation in hepatocytes and represents a complication of poor controlled type 1 diabetes. It can be caused by excessive insulin doses or recurrent ketoacidosis episodes. Mauriac's syndrome is a rare disease, which includes short stature, growth maturation delay, dyslipidemia, moon facies, protuberant abdomen, hepatomegaly with transaminase elevation. It has become even less common after the emergence of advances on diabetes treatment, but still exists...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are a group of complex and multifactorial disorders with unknown etiology. Chronic intestinal inflammation develops against resident intestinal bacteria in genetically susceptible hosts. We hypothesized that host intestinal immunoglobulin (Ig) G can be used to identify bacteria involved in IBD pathogenesis. RESULTS: IgG-bound and -unbound microorganisms were collected from 32 pediatric terminal ileum aspirate washes during colonoscopy [non-IBD (n = 10), Crohn disease (n = 15), and ulcerative colitis (n = 7)], and composition was assessed using the Illumina MiSeq platform...

Introduction: Obesity is a world pandemic; in Mexico 3 out of 10 adolescents suffer from it. Conservative management of morbid obesity is not effective and bariatric surgery is the only useful therapy. International pediatric bariatric surgery series are scarce and in Mexico there is limited experience. Method: We analyze the metabolic repercussions, comorbidities and complications in our series of Mexican adolescents with morbid obesity who underwent a gastric sleeve between 2011 and 2015...
