Introduction: The association of precocious puberty and/or polycystic ovaries, delayed bone age and hypothyroidism is known as the Van Wyk and Grumbach syndrome (VWGS). Clinically this syndrome is a diagnostic challenge because hypothyroidism usually leads to pubertal and growth delay, whereas in case of VWGS hypothyroidism it leads to growth delay and precocious puberty. We report a boy with long-standing, untreated hypothyroidism who presented with precocious puberty.<p ...

Background: Rokineticin receptors (PROKR1 and PROKR2) belong to the family of G protein-coupled receptors. Bi-or mono allelic mutations in PROKR2 gene have been identified in Kallmann syndrome which is characterized by hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia/hyposmia. Recently, PROKR2 mutations were reported in patients with multiple pituitary hormone (MPHD) and growth hormone deficiencies (GHD), suggesting a potential role for the PROK2 p...
