Severe Growth Retardation and Hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto’s Thyroidits

Krstevska-Konstantinova Marina , Stamatova Ana , Gucev Zoran

Background: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is a common autoimmune disease in pubertal and adolescent girls. In the past years the incidence of this autoimmune disease of the thyroid gland has increased.Objective and hypotheses: We present a 12.5 year old girl who had her first visit at our Pediatric Endocrinology Department at the age of 10 years due to short stature and clinical signs of hypothyroidism. Her height was – 3SD SDS and her BMI was 12.7. ...

Central Hypothyreoidism with Pituitary Enlargement and No Gene Alterations

Gucev Zoran , Trajanova Despina , Krstevska-Konstantinova Marina , Janchevska Aleksandra

Introduction: Central hypothyroidism is due to a deficiency of TRH/TSH.Patient and Methods, Results: A 9 year old boy (07 Aug. 20) was referred for proportionate short stature (-2.7 SD). He complained of fatigue and had mild peripheral edema. His baseline T4 was 2.9 ug/dL(ref. 4.50-12.50 ug/dL) and TSH 0.04 uIU/ml (0.400-4.00). The TRH test showed low TSH <0.004 Ulu/ML (ref. 0.400-4.00) and low T4 2.70 (ref. 4.50-12....

Janchevska Aleksandra , Bozinovski Georgi , Jordanova Olivera , Tasic Velibor , Gucev Zoran

Introduction: Angelman syndrome is caused by de novo maternal deletions in 15q11-q13 region of chromosome 15 in approximately 70% of affected children.Patient and Methods: A two and a half year-old boy with hypotonia, absence of speech, low weight (-4.38 SDS) and short stature (-1.14 SDS) had pale skin and typical facial features with wide and prominent forehead, low-lying ears, wide mouth, small and widely spaced te...

Myastenia Gravis in a Girl with Hashimoto Thyroiditis

Gucev Zoran , Alili Laerta , Laban Nevenka , Tasic Velibor

Objective: To describe an association of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and myasthenia gravis in a 16 years old girl.Patient Report and Methods: A 18-year old girl with persistent hypothyroidism secondary to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and a family history of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (grandmother), diagnosed in 2005 and confirmed by elevation of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), low levels of T3, T4 and fT4 levels. The US of the thyroid gland reveale...

Congenital Anomalies of the Kidney and Urinary Tract (CAKUT) in Children Born Small for Gestational Age (SGA) - Our Experiences

Janchevska Aleksandra , Gucev Zoran , Tasevska-Rmush Liljana , Tasic Velibor

Background: Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) represent several types of malformations with occurrence of 1 in about 500 live births.Objective and hypotheses: Small for gestation age (SGA) may influence prevalence of CAKUT and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children. The aim of this study was to elaborate prevalence, clinical features and outcome of SGA born children with associated CAKUT....

No Gene Alterations in 11 Genes Associated with Isolated Hypoparathyroidism

Gucev Zoran , Sabolic Vesna , Tasic Velibor , Mitsui Toshikatsu , Hasegawa Toshikatsu

Background: Idiopathic isolated hypoparathyroidism is rare in children. Most often aetiology is autoimmune or genetic.Objective and hypotheses: To sequence eleven genes (AIRE, CASR, GATA3, GCM2, PCLN1, PTH, TBCE, TRPM6, GNAS, PRKAR1A, PDE4D) associated with hypoparathyroidism in a child with isolated hypoparathyroidism (IHPT) in order to find a specific gene alteration in IHPT.Method: We systematically sequenced the 11 gen...

A 4-Month-Old Boy with Beckwith Wiedemann Syndrome

Janchevska Aleksandra , Tasic Velibor , Gucev Zoran , Bachmann Nadine , Bergmann Carsten

Background: Beckwith Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is an overgrowth disorder with vari-able phenotype (hemihypertrophy, macroglossia, visceromegaly, malformations, and hypo-glycaemia in 30–50%) and predisposition for tumors, during the second part of pregnancy and first few years of life.Objective and hypotheses: Molecular characterisation of a patient with BWS was perfor-med to ensure adequate clinical management. This analysis revealed the most common ...

Growth Hormone Treatment in Children Born Small for Gestational Age (SGA)

Janchevska Aleksandra , Krstevska-Konstantinova Marina , Jordanova Olivera , Tasevska-Rmush Liljana , Tasic Velibor , Gucev Zoran

Introduction: Growth failure is a common consequence in small for gestational age (SGA) children.Patients and methods: The growth patterns and serum insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF1) concentrations before and after the 1st year under GH treatment of 32 short stature SGA born children have been evaluated. In addition, we investigated the insulin like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) exon 2 as a hotspot for IGF1R genetic alterations. It is of note that n...

LHX-4 Gene Mutation in a Boy with Hypopituitarism and Severe Congenital Myopathy

Gucev Zoran , Tasic Velibor , Plasevska-Karanfilska Dijana , Stamatova Ana , Laban Nevenka , Polenakovic Momir

Background: LHX4 mutations are rare in combined pituitary hormone deficiency, and even rarer in isolated GHD.Objective and hypotheses: We describe a 14 years old boy who was referred for investigation of short stature.Methods and Results: Short stature, convergent strabismus, nystagmus was present. At the age of 5 years his gait was unstable. A progressive myopathy ensued. Tests of pituitary reserve showed partial IGHD (8....

Severe Isolated Growth Hormone Deficiency and Myopathy in Two Brothers with RNPC3 Mutation

Gucev Zoran , Polenakovic Momir , Tasic Velibor , LeBouc Yves , Klammt Jurgen , Pfaeffle Roland , Filipovska Aleksandra

Background: We present two brothers with very distinct phenotype, possibly constituting a novel clinical and genetic entity. The common phenotype included red hair, obesity, myopathy, severe IGHD and, growth without growth hormone.Case presentation: At the age of 28 months the older brother had a height of 68 cm (−9 SD), his bone age was 6 months. The younger brother had a height of 62 cm at the age of 20 months (−5 SD), bone age 10 months. T...
