Researchers at the Servicio de Cirugía Pediátrica, Hospital Universitario Austral in Argentina have reported their experience in treating priary hyperhidrosis in pediatric patients in the journal Arch Argent Pediatr (2008 Feb;106(1):32-5). The study, authored by Dr. J Buraschi details a 4 year experience in 25 patients, ages 8 – 18 years. All of the patients had palmar or palmar and axillary hyperhidrosis. The author reports that “hyperhidrosis disappeared in 98% of the patients” and that these results “obtained with this technique allow recommending the endoscopic thoracic sympathicolysis procedure for the treatment of this pathology in pediatric [patients]."

Dr. Karamanoukian's comment - this is another study showing efficacy of ETS in the pediatric population. A summary of a report also demonstrating efficacy in pediatric patients from Israel is also posted in our Hyperhidrosis News section.
