Endocrinological Evaluation of Girls with Turner Syndrome Attending Alexandria University Children’s Hospital

Khater Doaa , Eldesoky Shadia

Introduction: Turner Syndrome (TS) is the consequence of complete or partial absence of one X chromosome in a phenotypic female. The genes involved in Turner phenotype are X-linked genes that escape inactivation. A major locus involved in the control of linear growth has been mapped within the Pseudo-Autosomal Region (PAR1) of the X chromosome.Aim: To study some endocrine hormones with considerable effect on the presentation and prognosis of TS and their...

Frequency and Risk Factors of Depression in Type 1 Diabetes in a Developing Country

Khater Doaa , Omar Heba

Background: Living with type 1 diabetes especially in developing countries can feel overwhelming for parents and children because constant vigilance is required for proper care with inadequacy of resources.Objectives and hypothesis: Our aim was to investigate the frequency of depressive symptoms in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes and their association with demographic, diabetes-specific, and family-functioning risk factors.<p class="abs...

Radiological evaluation of children with atypical genitalia due to disorders of sex development (46, XY DSD) in a resource-limited setup

Khater Doaa , Raafat Shaymaa

Background: Disorders of sex development (DSD) comprises a heterogeneous group of conditions involving interference with normal sex differentiation and hormonal production in the embryo. Imaging is a very useful tool in assessing the patient’s phenotypic sex through identifying the internal genital anatomy and the adrenal glands. Ultrasonography is a cheap and readily available tool. MRI has disadvantage of being expensive with long waiting lists especially in developin...

The Prevalence of Hypertension and its Relationship to Glycemic Control in Children with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Khater Doaa , Omar Magdy , Abozaid Heba

Background: Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is a chronic disease with many chronic complications as nephropathy, retinopathy and neuropathy or macrovascular complications as coronary artery disease and peripheral vascular disease due to the effects of hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia on vascular endothelial function. Moreover, in patients with T1DM, hypertension (HTN) is a significant contributor to the development of both micro- and macrovascular complications.<p cl...

Assessment of the Gonadotrophin–Gonadal Axis and Sertoli Cell Function in Partial Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome

Khater Doaa , Omar Magdy , Raafat Shaymaa

Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is the largest single entity that leads to male under-masculinization. Although adequate serum concentrations of testosterone exclude a defect in testosterone biosynthesis, a low testosterone value at baseline does not always exclude PAIS. Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), also called Müllerian inhibiting substance or factor, is secreted in high amounts by the immature Sertoli cell; it is negatively regulated by testosterone.<p c...

Clinical characteristic and testicular function in children with 46 XY disorder of sex development in a developing country

Khater Doaa , Raafat Shaymaa , Badawy Haytham , Omar Magdy

Disorders of sex development (DSD) comprise a heterogeneous group of conditions involving interference with normal sex differentiation and hormonal production in the embryo resulting in relatively rare conditions having diverse pathophysiology. The aim of the current work is to study the clinical characteristics and testicular function of patients with 46 XY DSD. A cross-sectional study was done included children with initial presentation of atypical genitalia and satisfied th...

Assessment of the Adrenal Function in Children with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Before and After Induction Therapy with Corticosteroids

Dhawi Naji Walad , Khater Doaa , Al-Yaarubi Saif , Ullah Irfan Ullah , Wali Yasser

Background: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common cancer in children. Corticosteroids are the cornerstone in treatment of pediatric ALL. Steroids can cause several side effects including secondary adrenal insufficiency with disruption of cortisol response to stress causing morbidity and even mortality in those children.Objective: To assess the adrenal gland function of children with ALL before and after i...

Effect of Hydroxyurea Therapy on Growth Parameters in Older Children with Sickle Cell Disease

Alomairi Anwar , Almullabd Sharef , Khater Doaa , Al-Yaarubi Saif , Nazir Hanan , Wali Yasser

Background: Growth impairment is a known complication of sickle cell disease (SCD). Effects of hydroxyurea (HU) on growth in older children with SCD have never been reported.Objective and hypotheses: This study was done to explore the potential effects of HU on growth parameters of older children with SCD and correlate these changes with clinical improvement.Method: A prospective study was conducted on 97 SCD patients started on HU...

NEUROD1 mutation as a cause of neonatal diabetes: the rarest of the rare!

Abdelmeguid Yasmine , Elwan Samar , De Franco Elisa , Abd Elmaksoud Marwa , Khater Doaa

Background: NEUROD1 encoding neurogenic differentiation 1 is known to play an important role in the development of the pancreas and central nervous system. Heterozygous mutations have been rarely identified as a cause of maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY6). Biallelic NEUROD1 mutations have been reported to cause neonatal diabetes mellitus (NDM) as well. However, only 3 cases have been reported worldwide so far....
