Pintus Donatella , Das Urmi , Dharmaraj Poonam , Didi Mohammed , Ramakrishnan Renuka , Senniappan Senthil , Thorburn Keith , Blair Joanne

Background: Hypocortisolaemia is common in neonates1 and infants following cardiac surgery.2 In critically ill children with other pathologies, hypocortisolaemia may result from accelerated cortisol metabolism and reduced protein binding. However, the timing and frequency of normalisation of cortisol concentrations following infantile critical illness is poorly described.Objective: To describe the natural history of hypocortisolaemi...

Objectives: Diazoxide is first line treatment for hypoglycaemia due to hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia (HH). Although sporadic cases of pulmonary hypertension (PH) have been reported, no HH cohort has been systematically characterised to understand severity and risk factors for diazoxide-induced PH.Methods: To investigate the onset, progress and associated factors in PH, patients with HH who developed diazoxide-induced PH in 4 regional centres were retro...
