On Tuesday November 24th at 17:00 – 18:00 CET an Endo-ERN webinar entitled “Diagnosis and management of Silver–Russell Syndrome, a multidisciplinary care is necessary” will be held by Prof. dr. Irène Netchine (MTG5 co-chair) from Hôpital Trousseau, Sorbonne université, Paris, France
Silver–Russell Syndrome (SRS) is a rare condition associated with prenatal and postnatal growth retardation. Children with SRS can be distinguished from those with « idiopathic » intrauterine growth retardation or born small for gestational age (SGA) and postnatal growth failure by the presence of other characteristic features, including relative macrocephaly at birth, prominent forehead, body asymmetry and feeding difficulties in early life. Considerable overlap exists between the care of individuals born SGA and those with SRS. However, many specific management issues exist. SRS is primarily a clinical diagnosis but molecular testing enables confirmation of the clinical diagnosis and defines the subtype.The management of children with SRS requires an experienced, multidisciplinary approach. Specific issues include growth failure, severe feeding difficulties, gastrointestinal problems, hypoglycaemia, body asymmetry, scoliosis, motor and speech delay and psychosocial challenges. An early emphasis on adequate nutritional status is important, with awareness that rapid postnatal weight gain might lead to subsequent increased risk of metabolic disorders. The benefits of treating patients with SRS with growth hormone include improved body composition, motor development and appetite, reduced risk of hypoglycaemia and increased height. Awareness of possible premature adrenarche, fairly early and rapid central puberty and insulin resistance is important. Long-term follow up is essential to determine the natural history and optimal management in adulthood and transition care needs to be developed.(https://www.nature.com/articles/nrendo.2016.138)
This webinar presents the challenges of diagnosis and clinical guidelines for Silver Russell Syndrome recently established and discussed in the first international consensus.
The 8th International Symposium on DSD will take place from 8 – 10 July 2021 at the University Hospital Bern.
The registration and abstract site will open on 21st January 2021.
We are proud to announce that the manuscript entitled
ENDOCRINOLOGY IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: Clinical management of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs), which involves various Endo-ERN members, has been accepted for publication in the European Journal of Endocrinology.

On Wednesday November 11th at 15:00 – 16:00 CET an Endo-ERN webinar about “Wolfram syndrome: Diagnostics, Biomarkers, and Therapeutic Options” is organised. The Endo-ERN webinar will be held by Prof Fumihiko Urano from the Washington University, United States.
The video explains to patients affected by rare, low prevalence and complex diseases what the European Reference Networks (ERN) are and how they might support them to identify diagnosis or treatment, in the case their health professional considers the support of the ERNs is necessary.
