Aims/hypothesis: The Wolfram syndrome, also known as the DIDMOAD syndrome (Diabetes Insipidus, early-onset Diabetes Mellitus, progressive Optic Atrophy, and Deafness), is mostly associated with recessive mutations in the WFS1 gene. However, dominant mutations in the WFS1 gene were described as causing less severe Wolfram-like syndrome, or isolated optic atrophy, or low-frequency sensorineural hearing loss.Method...

Background: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is the most common cause of the persistent hypoglycemia in children. Mutations in KCNJ11 and ABCC8 genes coding potassium channel subunits are responsible for a significant proportion of CHI patients. The type of mutation correlates with the type of B-cell hyperplasia (focal or diffuse), and determinates further diagnostics, treatment and prognosis of disorder.Aims and objectives: The aim of ...

Background: MEHMO (microcephaly, epilepsy, hypogenitalism, mental retardation, obesity) is a rare disorder with X-linked inheritance. Only three families with this disorder were described previously, with the linkage to a region on X chromosome. No specific gene has been identified so far.Aims and objectives: The aim was to identify the genetic etiology in two unrelated Slovak male probands (4.5 and 1.5 years old respectively) with the clinical diagnosis...
