Cinacalcet Treatment in a Child with Concurrent Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and Hypocalciuric Hypercalcemia

Hacihamdioglu Bulent , Delil Kenan , Ozkaya Ozan

Familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH) is a genetically heterogeneous condition resembling primary hyperparathyroidism but not curable by surgery. Cinalcelcet may improve symptoms some patients but limited experienced especially in children. A 10 years old child evaluated by uveitis, sacroileitis, spondyloarthritis and diagnosed as HLA-B27 positive juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Also at the same time he evaluated by high calcium, low phosphate and inappropriately hig...

A Case of Gonadotropin-Independent Precocious Puberty Due to Germ Cell Tumor in the Frontal Lobe

Hacihamdioglu Bulent , Yalcin Koray , Suna Celen Safiye , Hazar Volkan

Introduction: It is known that gonadotropin-independent or peripheral precocious puberty (PPP) may develop due to tumors that secrete beta human chorionic gonadotropin (Beta-HCG). These tumors can be located in gonads, liver, mediastinum or central nervous system. HCG-producing tumors of the central nervous system are rare, most commonly seen in the suprasellar and pineal regions. However, any germ cell tumor (GCT) containing the syncytiotroblastic giant cell ...

Cushing Syndrome Due to Adrenal Adenoma in an Adolescent Patient and Successful Treatment with Laparoscopic Surgery

Hacihamdioglu Bulent , Ozgurhan Gamze , Guney Asuman , Haluk Guvenc Bekir

Cushing syndrome (CS) is a rare disease in children associated with weight gain and stunting of their linear growth. In older children, pituitary adenomas are a more common cause of CS. The clinical presentation of CS varies in children such as truncal obesity, striae, facial plethora, hypertension, and PKOS-like (polycystic ovary syndrome) feature. Here in we report an adolescent presented with obesity, short stature and late puberty but without metabolic syndrome or hirsutis...

Perinatal form Hypophosphatasia Caused by a Novel Large Duplication of ALPL Gene and two year follow-up under Enzyme Replacement Therapy; A case report

Hacihamdioglu Bulent , Ozgurhan Gamze , Pereira Catarina , Tepeli Emre , Acar Gulsen , Comert Serdar

Hypophosphatasia is a rare disease caused by mutations in the gene encoding tissue- nonspecific isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase. Duplications of the ALPL gene account for fewer than 1% of the mutations causing HPP. It has been shown that asfotase alfa treatment mineralizes the skeleton and improves respiratory function and survival in severe forms of hypophosphatasia.The newborn was evaluated for respiratory failure and generalized hypoton...

In Patients with Chronic Autoimmune Thyroiditis, Investigation of the Effects of Functions of Regulatory T Cells and Vitamin D

Siklar Zeynep , Karatas Deniz , Dogu Figen , Kocaay Pinar , Hacihamdioglu Bulent , Ikinciogullari Aydan , Berberoglu Merih

Background: Treg cells are characterized by expression of Foxp3 molecule that serve as keys in the maintenance of peripheral tolerance and in controlling the immune response. The exact role of Treg cells in the pathogenesis of CAT has not been recognized yet.Objective and hypotheses: It is suggested that vitamin D is one of the factors that can regulate the function of Treg cells. In this study, the relationship between Treg cells (levels and expression)...

Mutations in SGPL1, the Gene Encoding Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Lyase, Cause a Novel Form of Primary Adrenal Insufficiency with Steroid Resistant Nephrotic Syndrome

Background: Primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) is most commonly congenital in children. PAI is genetically heterogeneous with some gene defects causing syndromic disease. A third of patients have no genetic diagnosis meaning their prognosis is uncertain. We recently investigated families with a novel combination of PAI and steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome.Objective and hypotheses: To discover the genetic defect underlying this syndrome.<p class=...

Background: Primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) is a potentially life-threatening condition that requires accurate diagnosis and urgent treatment. Congenital adrenal hyperplasia is the most common cause of PAI in children. Non-CAH causes of PAI are relatively rare. Although several molecular causes have been found, it is emerging that considerable overlap in the clinical and biochemical features of these conditions exists.Objective and hypotheses: We inv...
