Neonatal Pituiiary–Thyroid Axis Dysregulation with Combined Thyroid Hormone and TSH Resistance in Infant with Trisomy 21 and Maternal Subclinical Hypothyroidism

Soni Astha , Avula Shivaram , Didi Mohammed , Ng Sze May

Background: Trisomy 21 is associated with dysregulated pituitary thyroid axis with higher TSH and lower FT4 than controls. This may be due to genomic imbalance from trisomy of chromosome 21. Transient congenital hypothyroidism (CH) in newborns is recognised in association with maternal thyroperoxidase (TPO) antibody positivity. ‘Thyroid hormone resistance’ in infancy in CH is also been described.Objective and hypotheses: We report an...

Introduction: Pituitary adenoma (PA) in childhood is a rare disease, accounting for 3 % of all intracranial paediatric neoplasm, and between 3 to 6% of all PA. There are only few large studies describing paediatric pituitary adenoma and even fewer studies with long-term outcome.Methods: In this retrospective study, clinical, biochemical and radiological parameters and outcome of paediatric patients (<16 years...
