Laron Syndrome Caused by a Large Deletion in GH Receptor Gene

Mutlu Gul Yesiltepe , Kirmizibekmez Heves , Arman Ahmet , Hatun Sukru

Background: Laron syndrome, which is characterised with GH insensitivity, is caused by mutations of GH receptor (GHR). GHR, consisting of nine exons, is located on 5th chromosome. Typical findings of this syndrome are immature facial appearance, prominent forehead and eyes, depressed nasal bridge, low IGF1 and IGFBP3 levels which do not increase with IGF-generation test.Case report: A 4-year and 3-month old boy was admitted because of growth retardation....

Prediction of Adult Height Based on Automated Bone Age Estimation in Early Puberty: A Single-Center Prospective Study

Huseyin Yigit Murat , Yesiltepe Mutlu Gul , Eviz Elif , Hatun Sukru

Introduction: In cases of precocious puberty, an important factor in making treatment decisions is when adult height estimates based on bone age (BA) determination are behind midparental height. In Turkey, clinicians often use the Greulich Pyle (GP) atlas to determine BA, which can lead to significant differences between assessors. The aim of this study was to compare estimated adult height (EAH) calculations based on BA determined by the automated BoneXpert m...

Thyroid Hormone Resistance Beta: Eighteen Pediatric Patient Experience

Siraz Ulku Gul , Direk Gul , Akin Leyla , Bircan Rıfat , Tatli Zeynep Uzan , Hatipoglu Nihal , Kendirci Mustafa , Kurtoglu Selim

Resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) is a rare genetic disease caused by reduced tissue sensitivity to thyroid hormone. The hallmark of RTH is elevated serum levels of thyroid hormone with unsuppressed thyrotropin (TSH). The most common form of RTH results from minor defects in the ligand-binding domain of the TRb gene, resulting in impaired T3-induced transcriptional activity. This study aimed to characterize clinical and genetic features of THD suspected cases in our clinic. ...

Objective: According to the etiology of hyperparathyroidism, it is divided into primer and secondary (uremic). It usually develops due to CaSR mutation in the infancy period. On the other hand, it usually emerges secondary to a parathyroid adenoma in adolescents. Parathyroid adenomas seen in childhood are commonly associated with familial multiple neoplasia syndromes (MEN). Patients may present with bone pain, proximal myopathy, fractures, renal stone, pancreatitis or they can...
