AbstractAlthough haematopoietic stem cell transplant has been successfully employed in the cure of several malignant and non-malignant conditions, survivors often suffer from delayed effects involving the endocrine system and cardio-metabolic risk factors. In this cross-sectional study, we aimed to assess the prevalence of endocrine dysfunction and alterations in metabolic profile in 63 recipients of allogeneic stem cell transplantation as compared to 65 age, sex and body mass index matched controls. Hypogonadism emerged as the most prevalent endocrinopathy, present in 23/60 (38.3%) of subjects, followed by overt and subcl...
