Resumen

GONZALEZ FERNANDEZ, Pedro; OTI GIL, María Antonia  y  GOMEZ CARRERA, Remigio. Aspects of interest on the empty sella syndrome in children: apropos of 5 patients . Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2008, vol.80, n.2. ISSN 0034-7531.

The cases of 5 patients under 12 that received attention at the Endocrinology Service of "William Soler" Pediatric Teaching Hospital and that underwent an imaging study with computerized axial tomography and nuclear magnetic imaging to confirm endocrinopathy were presented. The empty sella syndrome was diagnosed after concluding the study. Clinical differences were observed between children and adults with empty sella syndrome. The most significant were found in children, among whom there was neither predominance of sex nor association with obesity. The presence of endocrine affections as expression of hypothalamus-hypophyseal alterations was observed in them.

Palabras clave : Empty sella syndrome; hypothalamus-hypophyseal dysfunction; diabetes insipidus sensitive to vasopressin; early puberty.
