Background: Nutritional excess of vitamin A, a precursor for retinoic acid (RA), causes premature epiphyseal fusion, craniosynostosis, as well as light-dependent retinopathy. Similarly, homozygous loss-of-function mutations in one of the major RA-metabolizing enzymes CYP26B1 causes advanced bone age, premature epiphyseal fusion, and craniosynostosis. We studied a patient with markedly accelerated skeletal and dental development, retinal scarring, and autism-spectrum disease.</...

Short Stature, Accelerated Bone Maturation, and Early Growth Cessation due to Heterozygous Aggrecan Mutations

Nilsson Ola , Guo Michael , Dunbar Nancy , Popovic Jadranka , Flynn Daniel , Jacobsen Christina , Lui Julian , Hirschhorn Joel , Baron Jeffrey , Dauber Andrew

Background: Most children with idiopathic short stature (ISS) have a delayed bone age (BA). ISS with advanced BA is far less common. We studied three families with autosomal dominant short stature, unexplained BA acceleration, and premature growth cessation.Objective and hypotheses: To identify the genetic cause of this condition and describe its clinical spectrum.Method: Whole exome sequencing was performed in selected individuals...

Background: Hypopituitarism is characterized by deficiency of one or more anterior pituitary hormones. POU1F1 mutations are the second most frequent known cause of combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD). Patients are typically deficient in GH, TSH, and prolactin, although two unrelated cases were reported with isolated GH deficiency (IGHD). To date, all POU1F1 mutations have been reported for the predominantly expressed alpha isoform, which is a transcr...
