Mendes Catarina , Pinho Liliana , Borges Teresa , Oliveira Maria Joao , Cardoso Helena

Background: Turner syndrome (TS) patients typically exhibit short stature and gonadal dysgenesis with pubertal delay and infertility. Up to 30% of these girls will have spontaneous pubertal development, however only 2% achieve a spontaneous pregnancy. Biochemical markers reflecting the ovarian reserve in girls and adolescents with TS are therefore needed.Objective and hypotheses: Evaluation of the ovarian reserve in girls and adolescents with TS using se...

Correia Joana , Mendes Catarina , Pinheiro Marina , Preto Clara , Cardoso Helena , Oliveira Maria Joao , Borges Teresa

Background: C-peptide secretion is the most accurate measurement of residual β-cell function in type 1 diabetes (T1D) and even residual levels seem to positively correlate with a lower probability of complications.Objective and hypotheses: Identify key determinants to the evolution of the β pancreatic cell function, measured by fasting C-peptide (FCP).Method: Prospective study of patients diagnosed with T1D, with evaluati...

Machado Angela , Oliveira Maria Joao , Borges Teresa , Cardoso Helena , Fonseca Paula , Ribeiro Luis , Goncalves Catarina , Lemos Manuel

Background: Kallmann syndrome (KS) is a rare clinical entity, characterized by the association of hipogonadotropic hypogonadism and hypo/anosmia, with an estimated prevalence of 1:8000 in males and 1:40 000 in females.Method: Retrospective study of cases of KS diagnosed in paediatric age. Genetic analysis was performed by PCR and DNA sequencing of KAL1, FGFR1, GNRHR, GNRH1, PROK2, PROKR2, KISS1R, TAC3, TACR3, and FGF8 genes.Results...

Miguel Resende Maria , Gomes Pereira Patrícia , Mendes Catarina , João Oliveira Maria , Borges Teresa , Freitas Joana

Background and Aims: In light of the recent evidence suggesting an increase in idiopathic central precocious puberty (ICPP) cases during the COVID-19 pandemic, this study aimed to assess the proportion of patients referred for precocious puberty (PP) and, within this group, the number of ICPP cases diagnosed before and during the pandemic. Additionally, we compared the demographic, anthropometric, and clinical characteristics of ICPP patients between the two g...
