Novel Homozygous Mutation in a Boy with Pseudohypoaldosteronism Type 1

Saffari Fatemeh , Homaei Ali

Pseudohypodosteronism type 1 (PHA-1) is an inherited disease caused by the resistance of peripheral tissues to aldosterone, leading to severe salt loss in infants. This rare disease is caused by mutations in the amiloride-sensitive epithelial sodium channel subunits (ENaCs). Loss-of-function mutations in ENaCs lead to PHA-1, which is associated with neonatal salt wasting. PHA1 can be transmitted as autosomal dominant and recessive forms. Patients with the autosomal dominant fo...

Novel Homozygous LRP5 Mutations in Patients with Osteoporosis-Pseudoglioma Syndrome

Saffari Fatemeh , Heidari Abolfazl , Esmailzadehha Neda , Homaei Ali

Background: Osteoporosis pseudoglioma syndrome (OPPG) characterized by congenital or early onset blindness with severe juvenile onset osteoporosis. OPPG is a rare autosomal recessive disorder due to loss of function mutation in the low-density lipoprotein receptor like protein 5 (LRP5).Methods: Two patients (siblings) underwent clinical examination, including a complete ophthalmic evaluation. Diagnosis of OPPG was based ...

A novel mutation of LHX3 is associated with combined hypopituitarism and dysmorphic face

Noorian Shahab , Savad Shahram , Saffari Fatemeh , Nikkhah Saeed , Talea Ali , Soltani Hedieh

The pituitary gland is a pea-sized organ located at the base of the brain. It synthesizes, and secretes, many hormones that control growth and development, and the functioning of the other endocrine glands. Panhypopituitarism is a condition of inadequate or absent production of all these hormones. LHX3 (LIM Homeobox 3) is a Protein-Coding gene involved in pituitary development. Mutations in this gene may result in a deficiency of multiple pituitary hormones. Here, we present a...
