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...

Early Onset Hypertension with Primary Hyperaldosteronism through Mutation in the Calcium Channel CACNA1H – Case Report

Dumitrescu Cristina , Chirita Corina , Procopiuc Camelia , Gherlan Iuliana , Olaru Maria , Lifton Richard P , Nelson-Williams Carol

Background: The genetic causes of primary hyperaldosteronism are still being discovered.Results: We present the case of a 17-years-old girl who was found by accident with severe hypertension (TA 180/100 mmHg, bilateral). Her personal history was unremarkable. Her father had hypertension and a paternal aunt had died at 55 due to a stroke. Both her sisters and mother had normal blood pressure. The cardiological examinationshowed concentric left ventricle h...

Inhibin B in the Diagnosis of Delayed Puberty

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...
