Prevalence of Dental Anomalies in the Permanent Dentition of Children with Down Syndrome
The high incidence of chronic otitis media with effusion and Eustachian tube dysfunction in children with Down syndrome (DS) may predispose them to cholesteatoma formation. Establishing the diagnosis, choosing the appropriate operative intervention, and post-operative care can be challenging.
The purpose of this study was to describe the prevalence, characteristics and outcomes in pediatric patients with chromosomal anomalies (CA) undergoing orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT).
ConclusionsThe levels of the determined markers were higher in DS individuals compared with (cognitively) healthy subjects, and CRP showed a negative correlation with IQ in children with DS.
(Universit é de Gen è ve) Only 20 percent of fetuses with trisomy 21 reach full term. But how do they manage to survive the first trimester of pregnancy despite this heavy handicap? Researchers from UNIGE and UNIL have found that children born with Down syndrome have an excellent genome -- better than the average genome of people without the genetic abnormality. It is possible that this genome offsets the disabilities caused by the extra chromosome, helping the fetus to survive.

Conclusion The low energy absorption in the presence of normal tympanograms in children with DS may suggest middle ear abnormalities.
Purpose of review To summarize the recent developments in endocrine disorders associated with Down syndrome. Recent findings Current research regarding bone health and Down syndrome continues to show an increased prevalence of low bone mass and highlights the importance of considering short stature when interpreting dual energy x-ray absorptiometry. The underlying cause of low bone density is an area of active research and will shape treatment and preventive measures. Risk of thyroid disease is present throughout the life course in individuals with Down syndrome. New approaches and understanding of the pathophysiology...

CONCLUSIONS: A student-mentored community-based exercise program feasibly engages youth with disability in community-based exercise. Implications for Rehabilitation A 12-week community-based student-mentored exercise program for youth with disability is feasible. Exercising in a real-world setting with a student mentor has a positive effect on physical and psychological well-being of youth with disability. PMID: 29343130 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Summary BackgroundHidradenitis suppurativa (HS) has been linked to Down syndrome (DS). ObjectivesTo determine whether patients with DS have a higher prevalence of HS, and whether the diagnosis of HS occurs at an earlier age for these patients. MethodsA cross‐sectional analysis was performed for a population sample of 11 936 patients with DS and 16 813 290 patients without DS. The primary outcome was the diagnosis of HS. Systemized Nomenclature of Medicine–Clinical Terms were used to identify patients with DS and HS. We used logistic regression models and significant interaction terms to evaluate the ...
