Introduction: Mitotane is an adrenal-specific agent available for treatment of residual adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) after surgery, due to a specific, direct effect on adrenal cell mitochondria impairing adrenal steroidogenesis being associated with increased SHBG and modulates their disposal for target cell. We report a rare case of uterine bleeding during mitotane treatment in a girl with recurrent ACC.Case report: A 2.6 year-old girl was diagnosed w...

AIP Polymorphism in Familiar Isolated Pituitary Adenomas: Case Report

Viale Maria Lorena , Hernandez Claudia L , Rampi Maria Gabriela , Serra Maria Pia , Figueroa Veronica , Day Patricia Fainstein , Brunetto Oscar H

Background: Familiar isolated pituitary adenomas (FIPA) encompasses the familiar occurrence of isolated pituitary adenomas outside the setting of syndromic conditions such as MEN1 and Carney’s complex, and comprise about 2–3% of pituitary adenomas. About 20% of FIPA have mutations in the aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein gene (AIP), usually associated with a worse outcome.Objective and hypotheses: Evaluate the presence of AIP gene m...

Background: Brain tumours constitute the second most common tumours in childhood after leukaemia. Infra-tentorial tumours are more common. Most of the supra-tentorial tumours (STT) are in the supra or para-sellar regions. Malignant tumours are rare. The survival is 50–90% with appropriate management. However, STT and/or treatment may lead to traumatic brain injury (TBI) with endocrinopathic sequel.Methods: This is a retrospective hospital based stud...

GH and Prolactin Secreting Adenoma in an Adolescent Boy

Dursun Fatma , Kirmizibekmez Heves , Dagcinar Adnan

Background: Pituitary gigantism is a rare disorder. Paediatric endocrinologists may see at most one or two patients during their careers. In one large series of 2367 children and adolescents with pituitary adenomas, only 15 (0.6%) had pituitary gigantism. Much of our understanding is derived from isolated case reports and extrapolation from the adult literature. No sex predilection is known. Gigantism may occur at any age, and has been observed as early as the first 6–9 m...
