Rudzka-Kocjan Agnieszka , Szalecki Mieczyslaw , Malinowska Anna

Background: Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) is a metabolic and growth regulator. The growth-promoting effect of GH in children with GH deficiency (GHD) depends on many factors. FGF21 concentration in and its interaction with growth deficiency and growth response to GH therapy in GHD was not examined.Objective and hypotheses: To estimate the FGF21 concentration and its correlation with degree of growth deficiency and growth response in non-obese, prep...

Malinowska Anna , Marczak Elzbieta , Rudzka-Kocjan Agnieszka , Szalecki Mieczyslaw

Background: Septo-optic dysplasia (SOD) is a rare, congenital condition that mostly occurs sporadically, but can also be caused by mutations in HESX1, OTX2, SOX2, SOX3 genes. Symptoms of SOD include: optic nerve hypoplasia, hypopituitarism and midline brain abnormalities such as absence of septum pellucidum and/or corpus callosum.

Danko Mikolaj , Kot Karolina , Szalecki Mieczysław , Moszczynska Elzbieta , Malinowska Anna

Background: Hyperandrogenism in children is associated with excessive adrenal or gonadal androgens secretion. The most common causes of androgens hypersecretion are PCOS, adrenal tumors, CushingÂ’s syndrome, CAH, and gonadal virilizing tumors. Within the last 15 years single case-reports of hyperandrogenism in female patients with congenital porto-systemic shunts were described in literature. The mechanism of such coincidence is unknown but the role of hyperinsulinism, imp...
