[Evaluation of bone mineralization in cow’s milk sensitive children]

HIDVÉGI Edit, ARATÓ András, CSERHÁTI Endre, SZABÓ Antal, SZABÓ András, HORVÁTH CSABA

[BACKGROUND - Patients with cow's milk allergy (CMA) form a potential risk group for osteopenia, because their milk-free diet usually has a low calcium content.The study analyses various parameters of bone mineralization in CMA children. PATIENTS AND METHODS - Twenty-seven CMA patients (mean age: 4.3 years, range: 3-8 years) were enrolled in the study.Transient sensitivity to cow's milk was observed in 20 of 27 patients. During the milk-free diet period (mean duration 11.8 months) children were fed by extensively hydrolysed or soy-based formulas. Seven patients still required a cow's milk free diet at the time of the study. Serum levels of Na, K, Cl, Ca, P and Mg ions, as well as of alkaline phosphatase (AP), parathyroid hormone (PTH), osteocalcin and beta-crosslaps were determined for all 27 patients.The values were compared to those of 20 healthy age-matched controls. Bone mineral densities (BMDs) of CMA patients were also measured. RESULTS - The AP and PTH levels were higher in CMA patients than in the control group (AP: 610.2 U/l vs 499.7 U/l, p<0.01; PTH: 1.56 pmol/l vs 0.83 pmol/l, p<0.03), but all values fell in the normal range.The osteocalcin level was similar in the two groups, and the beta-crosslaps was lower in CMA patients than in the controls (0.92 vs 1.47 ng/ml, p<0.001).There was a positive correlation between both AP and osteocalcin and AP and beta-crosslaps levels.The mean Z score of bone mineral density in patients with CMA was -0.6. In 10 cases the Z score was below -1, which was associated with a significantly elevated PTH level compared to the group of patients with a Z score above - 1 (2.24 pmol/l vs 1.16 pmol/l, p<0.03). CONCLUSION - In children with CMA on a cow's milk free diet, slight disturbances of bone mineralization were observed, therefore, osteodensitometric check-up of these children is recommended.]

[In memoriam Prof. Dr. Ferenc Garzuly (1937-2021)]

ILLÉS Zsolt, HAHN Katalin, KÁLMÁN Bernadette

[Ferenc Garzuly passed away after a long and productive life at the age of 84. He worked for almost 60 years at the Markusovszky University Teaching Hospital, where primarily led the laboratory of neuropathology and the department of neurology, but transferred to the department of pathology after his retirement. By authoring several books on rare diseases, he greatly enriched the case-based tea­ching approach in medicine. He described the Hun­garian type of transthyretin mutation causing the familial me­nin­go­cerebrovascular amyloidosis phenotype. The presentation of a special phenotype of Fabry disease associated with megadolichobasilar anomaly and a novel mutation in the alpha-galactosidase-A gene is also associated with his name. ]

KUNCZ Ádám

[Mátyás Bobest died in May, 2019, at the age of 79, following a disease tolerated with patience. He was the 1st nominated Chef of the independent Neurosurgical Department at the Markusovszky University Teaching Hospital, Szombathely in 1980, and under his leadership it worked for 23 years. He succeed to create a Neurosurgical Centre of West Hungary with his diligent and ambitious work. Beside his everyday surgical duties he paid attention to the continuing medical education and made research on the intervertebral disc degeneration. ]
