Anthropometric and Nutritional Parameters in Egyptian Children and Adolescents with Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Abstract: Background/Aims: Patients with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) present with various degrees of short stature and nutritional disorders. Thus, we aimed to evaluate anthropometric and nutritional parameters in OI children and their variability among various types. Methods: Eighty-four patients with OI (types I, II, and IV) were subjected to the following anthropometric measurements: standing height (Ht), sitting height (SH), arm span, weight (Wt), and head circumference (HC), with calculation of Ht, SH, Wt, body ma… Show more

“…In our study, we demonstrated a significant difference between type I, in which the median height percentile was 21, and type III, with a median height percentile of 0.1 (p < 0.001). Our observations are consistent with the results presented in the literature [ 15 , 16 , 19 , 20 ]. The growth deficiency results presumably from the high number of fractures and associated deformities, which may lead to an abnormal osteoblast response to growth factors.…”

“…Furthermore, we demonstrated that the frequency of being overweight and particularly obesity increased throughout the follow-up period (from 13.2 to 14.2 % and from 6 to 11.7 %, respectively). In the same vein, Hamza et al reported that 11.9 % and 7.14 % of their 84 patients with OI were overweight and obese, respectively [13]. Fano et al observed that 19 % of their 65-patient cohort were overweight, and 11 % were obese [11].…”
