Pericardial effusion associated with transient abnormal myelopoiesis in Down's syndrome neonates needs to be diagnosed in a timely manner, and the comorbidities must be treated to prevent mortality. To our knowledge, the occurrence of basophilic/eosinophilic pericardial effusion without an increase of these cells in the peripheral blood and with no evidence of associated hypothyroidism is rare. AbstractPericardial effusion associated with transient abnormal myelopoiesis in Down's syndrome neonates needs to be diagnosed in a timely manner, and the comorbidities must be treated to prevent mortality.

We present the case of a 56-year-old man with Down syndrome and Alzheimer-like dementia with simultaneous bilateral hip fracture. A bilateral partial hip cemented arthroplasty was performed on this patient. The aim was to avoid the partial burden that could be caused by ostheosynthesis, due to the patient's lack of cooperation arising from his mental deterioration and his problems realizing everyday activities. He was able to walk unaided with complete autonomy until his death fourth years later. In our experience, one stage surgery for bilateral hip prosthesis is safe and provides good results in patients with severe ment...

AbstractDown syndrome (DS) is the most common genetic disease at birth; on average, it affects 1 in 700 newborns. The syndrome features cognitive impairment, susceptibility to certain diseases, and (in some cases) congenital malformations.

Furthermore, the systematic provision of specific support during childhood improves cognitive function and autonomy in adulthood. Consequently, patients and their families are now seeking the same rights as healthy people. Access to procreation is an emerging debate. The presumption of infertility...
