Background: There exists no gold standard for adjustment of treatment in congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Clinicians try to avoid over-and undertreatment by considering various indicators. We aimed to investigate the sampling times of 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) and the use of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) as a monitoring parameter, the association of which was not studied with clinical features. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study inclu...

Background: The exact mechanism of the partial clinical remission in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) has not been elucidated yet. The severity of the inflammation at the time of diagnosis may have an impact on the occurrence or duration of this phase.Objective: We aimed to investigate the relationship between hematological inflammatory parameters at the time of diagnosis in children and adolescents with T1DM and the need...

Introduction: Gynecomastia is common in boys at early-mid puberty, while prepubertal gynecomastia is a rare condition. Sertoli cell tumors (SCTs) account for 2% of prepubertal testicular tumors. Most of the SCTs in prepubertal boys, which are generally bilateral and diffuse, are in the content of Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome (PJS) or other familial syndromes (Carney complex). Large cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor (LCCSCT) is a variant of SCT and is seen in PJS. I...

Key words: early puberty, mood change, GnRH analogueIntroduction-Aim: In cases with early puberty, neuroendocrine, physical, and psychological changes are considered to result in several mood disorders. The aim of this research was to assess the mental problems of pubertal girls with rapidly progressive puberty (RPP) with menarche before the 10 years of age. To the best of our knowledge, there is no similar prospective c...

Introduction: Aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are increasingly used in children and adolescents to augment adult height. Given the potential risks of these drugs in women with breast cancer, detailed cardiovascular examinations in adolescents using these treatments are needed to ensure their safety in the pediatric group. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects AIs on cardiac morphology, functions and their relation to several metabolic parameters in a...

Purpose: The aim of the present study was to determine the efficiency of three different predictive models [Bayley-Pinneau (BP), Roche-Wainer-Thissen (RWT), and Tanner-Whitehouse 2 (TW2)] by comparing their predictions with near-adult height (NAH) data of girls who received gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) therapy.Methods: Clinical findings were retrospectively analyzed. Bone age (BA) was determined by thre...

Background: Osteonecrosis (ON) is bone death caused by inadequate blood supply resulting in demineralization and trabecular thinning and, subsequently, mechanical failure. Although the pathophysiology of ON is not fully understood, the use of high-dose glucocorticoid (GC) is one of the triggers. Furthermore, its optimal management remains uncertain. The use of bisphosphonates (BP) for the treatment of ON has been reported, however, data on outcomes are limited...

Introduction: Homozygous leptin (LEP) and leptin receptor (LEPR) mutations lead to childhood-onset obesity due to deficient leptin signaling. The specific aims of this work are to explore genotype/phenotype correlations in a national multicenter cohort of 18 subjects with leptin (LEP) and leptin receptor (LEPR) deficiency, report on the long-term clinical follow-up of these rare cases, and systematically review all patients with pathogenic <e...
