Bone parameters and body composition in paediatric renal patients in the year following transplantation

Khanna S , Waller S , King D , Wallace M , Maxwell H , Ahmed SF

Introduction: Children with chronic renal failure may grow poorly and have altered bone metabolism and body composition. Post-renal transplant (Tx), improvement in these parameters may be hindered due to glucocorticoid exposure.Aims & methods: To study changes in these parameters after Tx, anthropometry, bone mineral content (BMC) at total body (TB) and lumber spine (LS), lean mass (LM) and fat mass (FM) were analysed by DXA in 15 children (median ag...

Familial Hypocalcuric Hypercalcaemia (FHH) is an autosomal dominant condition associated with inactivating mutations of the human calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) gene (heterozygotes). Neonatal Severe Primary Hyperparathyroidism (NSHPT) affects infants who inherit two such inactivating copies (homozygotes). NSHPT is frequently fatal without parathyroidectomy (PTx).Between 1984 and 2003 we have diagnosed and treated seven children (4M, 3F) with NSHPT. All ...
