Introduction: Prohormone convertases are a family of proteins that mediate the processing and activation of peptide hormones and neuropeptide precursors. Homozygous mutations of the PCSK1 gene result in prohormone convertase 1 deficiency that is characterized by diarrhea, hypoglycemia, multiple pituitary hormone deficiency beginning from neonatal period and obesity beginning after infancy.Case: A 35-day-old boy was referred to our hospit...

Serologic Testing for Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance in a Singaporean paediatric endocrine and growth clinic.

Lee Warren ,

Up to 10 % of short stature has been estimated to be due to celiac disease. Celiac disease has been considered a rare condition outside of the Western world but recent publications (Singh P et al, Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 Jun 16 (6): 823-836, Yuan J et al, Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2017 Oct;15(10): 1572-1579) have shown that celiac disease is also present in Asians. While Tissue Transglutaminase IgA (tTg-IgA) has been considered to be a sufficiently sensitive test to e...

Diagnostic and Follow-up Problems of Medical Care for Prader-Willi Syndrome Children in Resourse-Limited Settings

Akulevich Natallia , Solntseva Angelica ,

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), a multisystem disorder, results of the absence of expression of paternal genes from chromosome 15q11.2-q13; it occurs with the prevalence of 1/10000-1/30000 in different populations. In real clinical practice PWS still remains a challenge for doctors, especially in resource-limited settings. We describe clinical course in 10 pediatric PWS patients (3M; 7F) aged 7,4±3,3 years (1,7÷12,3), all have microdeletion of paternally inherited 15q11....

Three generations of MEN-1: the importance of family screening

Duarte Mariana , Pereira Lemos Ana , Galhardo Julia , Lopes Lurdes ,

Background: Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1) is a rare and underdiagnosed syndrome caused by inactivating mutations of the tumor suppressor gene MEN-1 that predisposes to multiple tumors classically situated in the anterior Pituitary, Parathyroid, and Pancreas. The mutation is transmitted in an autosomal dominant way, and for this reason, the screening of all first-degree relatives is mandatory afte...

Follow-up and management of endocrine and metabolic disorders after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in a patient followed for Fanconi anemia

Lassoued Najoua , Salem Houda Ben , Ayadi Younes , Hmida Nada , Zantour Baha , Alaya Wafa , Habib Sfar Mohamed ,

Introduction: Fanconi anemia (FA) is a very rare, complex and chronic genetic disorder. The diagnosis is most often made at pediatric age. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is the only curative treatment for bone marrow failure. FA on its own as well as its treatment can affect the endocrine system. We report the case of a child followed for 12 years after HSCT for FA.Observation: A patient has been followed since the age of...

Cafe au-lait skin macules, Cushing syndrome (CS), hyperthyroidism, liver and cardiac dysfunction have been described as presenting features of neonatal McCune Albright Syndrome (MAS). Despite being defined, neonatal diabetes mellitus due to hypercortisolism is a rare presenting feature. Outcome of patients presenting in neonatal period is usually unfavorable, tthough spontaneous resolution of hypercortisolism have been reported. Newborn girl was born at 38 weeks of gestation v...

Introduction: Graves’ disease is a common etiology of hyperthyroidism. The association of Graves’ disease and idiopathic combined pituitary hormone deficiency (ICPHD) is rare. We report the case of a patient followed for ICPHD who developed Graves’ disease during follow-up.Observation: A 13-year-old patient consults for stature delay. She had a family history of idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism in a 25-year-old bro...

Introduction: Precocious puberty is a common problem affecting up to 29 per 100,000 girls per year. It is defined as the development of secondary sexual features, at a younger age than the accepted lower limits for age of onset of puberty, namely 8 years in girls and 9.5years in boys. We report the case of a precocious puberty in an 8-year-old and 11months girl with diabetes mellitus type 1 and autoimmune hypothyroidism followed-up in the department of Endocri...

In this case-control study 19 Greek adolescents with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and 21 non-PCOS controls were assessed for their hormonal, somatometric and autonomic nervous system profile in supine position. The study adhered to the Helsinki Guidelines of Good Clinical Practice. Significant differences were found only in very low frequencies (VLF) (P = 0.008) and Power spectral density RR (PSD) (P < 0.001) between adolescents with PCOS and controls...

Endocrine manifestations in familial neurofibromatosis type 1: a case report

Ayadi Younes , Lassoued Najoua , Arfa Sondos , Kooli Mariem , Alaya Wafa , Sfar Mohamed Habib ,

Introduction: Type 1 neurofibromatosis (NF1), also called Recklinghausen’s disease, is one of the most common genetic diseases. It is autosomal dominant inherited. Its diagnosis is based on the presence of a familial history of NF1 in a first-degree relative and on the presence of a set of clinical arguments. Endocrine manifestations may exist. The most common are pheochromocytoma and precocious puberty, but other endocrine disorders can be observed more ...
