Effects of 2 Years of Growth Hormone Treatment on Glucose Tolerance in Young Adults with Prader-Willi Syndrome

Donze Stephany , Kuppens Renske , Bakker Nienke , Hokken-Koelega Anita

Background: Growth hormone treatment (GH) in children with PWS results in an improvement in height velocity, body composition and mental and motor development. Discontinuation of GH after attainment of adult height (AH) leads to a decrease in lean body mass and an increase in body fat percentage, which results in an increased risk of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2). Studies in adults with PWS suggest positive effects of GH, but GH is known t...

Degand Pauline , Rouleau Stephanie , Donzeau Aurelie , Bouhours Natacha , Saveanu Alexandru , Reynaud Rachel , COUTANT Regis

Background: Congenital isolated adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) deficiency (IAD) is a rare condition. It is characterized by low plasma and cortisol levels and preservation of all other pituitary hormones (2 cases described with transient partial growth hormone deficiency). The principal molecular cause is identified as TPIT mutation. We present here the case of a neonate with TPIT mutation and ACTH deficiency associated with probable growth hormone and thyrotropin deficie...
