The Diagnostic Yield of a Targeted Next Generation Sequencing Panel in Children with Short Stature of Undefined Aetiology

Perchard Reena , Murray Philip G , Highton Georgina L , Whatmore Andrew J , Clayton Peter E

Background: Currently, data on the diagnostic yield of targeted gene panels using next generation sequencing (NGS) in children with short stature of undefined aetiology (SSUA) are limited. EPIGROW ( ID NCT00710307) was a prospective European epidemio-genetic study in which a targeted NGS panel including 69 genes associated with short stature (e.g. primordial growth disorders and skeletal dysplasias) was performed in 263 patients and 263 controls. In these pat...

Background: Many children with short stature (defined as height SDS <−2S.D.) have no identified cause for their growth impairment and are classified as either small for gestational age or idiopathic short stature depending on birth size. Whole exome sequencing (WES) is a useful tool to identify new genetic diagnoses in this group. Here we describe a recurrent NDUFB3 mutation in children with intra-uterine growth retardation, short stature and ...

A 7-Year Update Report of a National, Interdisciplinary Endeavour to Improve Outcomes for Children and Young People Under 19 Years of Age with Hypothalamic Pituitary Axis Tumours (HPAT) Using Multi-site Video Conferencing

Background: Paediatric HPAT, though generally benign, incurs significant neuro-endocrine morbidity. Their management is unclear and the paediatric neuro-oncology or adult pituitary forum at which they are discussed lack pituitary or age-specific expertise respectively. The UK National HPAT Interest Group has pioneered a monthly, multi-site, interdisciplinary, video conferencing decision-making forum, to garner necessary experience and evidence of outcomes to assist worldwide r...

Introduction: Primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) is a potentially life-threatening condition that requires appropriate diagnosis and treatment. The most common cause of PAI is congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), but other well-established aetiologies include metabolic and autoimmune disorders, and physical damage. Mutations in more than 30 genes have now been associated with PAI, with considerable biochemical and phenotypic overlap. It is therefore importan...
