Turner Syndrome (TS) is a relatively common chromosomopathy and according to epidemiological studies the prevalence of Autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT) in TS fluctuates from 10% to 21% versus 1.3% in the general population.Objective: – to retrospectively evaluate thyroid autoimmune disorders and thyroid function in a group of 93 TS patients.– to compare the prevalence of AIT and thyroid dysfunction in subgroups of TS accordin...

Clinical, Hormonal and Metabolic Profile in Adolescent Girls Treated with Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone Agonist for Idiopathic Central Precocious Puberty

Procopiuc Camelia , Dumitrescu Cristina , Vintila Madalina , Caragheorgheopol Andra , Brehar Andreea , Radomir Lidia , Gherlan Iuliana

Background: Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analog (GnRHa) is the gold standard treatment for central precocious puberty (CPP). In recent years, increased prevalence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been reported in girls treated with GnRHa for CPP. Attributes of PCOS overlap normal pubertal changes, making the diagnosis of PCOS during adolescence controversial.Aim: To assess the metabolic profile, the prevalence of PCOS and describe its phenotypes...

Procopiuc Camelia , Gherlan Iuliana , Dumitrescu Cristina , Brehar Andreea , Vladoiu Suzana , Procopiuc Livia , Caragheorgheopol Andra

Background: Existing tests are not 100% accurate in differentiating between isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) and constitutional delay of puberty (CDP) in boys. Inhibin B is a glycoprotein produced by the Sertoli cells and is measurable even before puberty. Its level increases at the beginning of puberty under the influence of FSH.Objective and hypotheses: The levels of inhibin B (InhB) could differentiate between HH and CDP. We aimed to establ...

Delayed Puberty: Between Chronopathology and Subclinical Pathology

Procopiuc Camelia , Dumitrescu Cristina , Gherlan Iuliana , Brehar Andreea , Costache Mariana , Procopiuc Livia , Caragheorgheopol Andra

Background: At 14 years of age for boys and 13 years for girls, delayed puberty with low gonadotropic hormones can either be a chronopathologic feature (constitutional delay of puberty – CDP) or the subclinical unmasking of a future isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH). The two conditions are difficult to differentiate at these specific ages.Objective and hypotheses: We aimed to identify clinical and paraclinical features which correlate wit...

Vitamin D in Short Children on GH Therapy: Effects of Vitamin D Status and Vitamin D Supplementation on Glucose Homeostasis

Dumitrescu Cristina , Caragheorgheopol Andra , Gherlan Iuliana , Brehar Andreea , Padure Adriana , Olaru Maria , Procopiuc Camelia

Background: Glucose metabolism effects of vitamin D deficiency are debated. GH therapy is associated with increased insulin values and decreased insulin sensitivity.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate vitamin D status in short children treated with GH- to investigate if the known effects of GH therapy on glucose metabolism are modulated by vitamin D supplementation.Method: 41 children treated with GH for short stature where ev...

Patients with Childhood Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency Treated with rhGH – Reevaluation in the Transition Period between Childhood and Adulthood – Preliminary Study

Procopiuc Camelia , Caragheorgheopol Andra , Gherlan Iuliana , Brehar Andreea , Padure Adriana , Dumitrascu Andra , Costache Mariana , Ardeleanu Ioana , Dumitrescu Crisina

Background: More than two thirds of teenagers with childhood-onset GH deficiency (CO-GHD) documented normal GH response when retested at final height.Objective and hypotheses: To identify potential predictors for persistent GHD after reaching final height under rhGH with a particular accent on children with isolated GHD (IGHD).Method: Prospective study: reevaluation CO-GHD in the transition period; cohort of 27 CO-GHD patient who r...
