Novel Insights into Thyroid Hormone Resistance

Chatterjee V K K

Resistance to thyroid hormone mediated by defective TRβ (RTHβ) or TRα(RTHα).Separate genes (THRA, THRB) undergo alternate splicing, generating nuclear receptors (TRα1, TRβ1, TRβ2) with distinct tissue distributions, which mediate thyroid hormone action; the function of a non-hormone binding protein (α 2), derived from the THRA locus, is unknown.RTHβ a dominantl...

Polyostotic Fibrous Dysplasia of McCune Albright Syndrome Responding to Intravenous Zoledronate Therapy

H K Ganesh , K M Girisha

Introduction: McCune Albright Syndrome consists of at least 2 of the following 3 features: (1) polyostotic fibrous dysplasia (PFD), (2) Café au lait macules and (3) autonomous endocrine hyperfunction (eg, gonadotropin-independent precocious puberty). Other endocrine syndromes include hyperthyroidism, acromegaly, and Cushing syndrome.Case: 2 year old girl presented with severe hip pain, inability to walk and progressive deformity of right lower limb....

Off the Weight Curve – Dynamics of Childhood Obesity

Körner Antje

The development of obesity begins early in life. From our large observational studies we know that the age between 3-6 years appears critical for development of obesity in children and once established, childhood obesity regularly persists into adulthood leading to premature morbidity and even mortality. In addition to the mere expansion of fat mass with developing childhood obesity, there are alterations in adipose tissue function such as adipocyte hypertrophy, inflammation a...

Diverse Presentations of Hypophosphatasia in Paediatric Patients: A Review of the Case Literature

Sawyer Eileen K , Anderson Karen

Background: Hypophosphatasia (HPP) is the rare inherited metabolic disease resulting from loss-of-function mutations in the tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP) gene. Understanding of the clinical presentation is largely based on single case reports, which presents challenges for the recognition and diagnosis of HPP.Objective: To better understand disease presentation, we surveyed the literature to characterize clinical features and presentat...

Thyroid Hormone Levels in Cord Blood are Associated with Fetal and Neonatal Growth

Hansen Malene K. , Strandkjaer Nina , Frikke-Schmidt Ruth , Bundgaard Henning , Main Katharina M. , Iversen Kasper K.

Background: Normal function of the thyroid gland is essential for adequate neurological development of the fetus and child. In previous studies, associations between reduced birth weight and overt maternal and fetal thyroid dysfunction have been described. We hypothesize that also variations within the normal range of fetal thyroid function have an impact on fetal and neonatal growth.Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate whether thyroid horm...

Our Treatment Experience with Nocturnal Continuous Enteral Calcium Infusion in a Case with Vitamin D Resistance Rickets Type II

Filibeli Berna Eroğlu , Kırbıyık Ozgur , Dundar Bumin Nuri

Introduction: Vitamin D resistant rickets type II (VDDR-II) is a disease with a difficult treatment developed as a result of mutations in VDR gene. Despite high dose active vitamin D and oral calcium treatments, sufficient recovery cannot be achieved mostly. Successful results with intravenous calcium infusion that is an alternative treatment have been reported; however, serious restrictions and complications such as hospitalization, catheter infection, thrombosis, skin necros...

Impact of GH on Adult Bone Quality in Turner Syndrome: a High Resolution Peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography Study

Nour Munier A , Perry Rebecca J , Stephure David K , Hanley David A , Boyd Steven K

Background: Women with Turner syndrome (TS) are known to be at risk of osteoporosis and fracture. While childhood GH treatment is common in TS, the impact of this therapy on bone health has been poorly understood.Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of childhood GH-treatment on adult bone quality in TS women using dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT).<p c...

Clinical and Biological Parameters Associated to the Severity of X-linked Hypophosphatemia in Children

Salcion-Picaud A , Rothenbuhler A , Etcheto A , Molto A , Briot K , Linglart A

Introduction: X-linked hypophosphatemia or XLH is a rare genetic disease, often revealed in children by rickets, growth failure, delayed walking, and leg bowing. Clinically the severity is reflected by leg deformities. The aim of our study was to assess the clinical and biochemical parameters correlated to the severity of XLH at the end of growth.Materiel and methods: Monocentric retrospective study of patients treated with phosphate supplements and vita...

Evaluation of Vitamin D Status and Its Correlation with Gonadal Function in Children at Mini-puberty

Kılınc Suna , Atay Enver

Objective: Most recent evidence from conducted in human and animal studies suggests that vitamin D has a potential role in the physiology of reproductive function in both genders. We investigate the role of vitamin D in male and female gonadal function at mini-puberty period with particular emphasis on production of sex steroids and gonadal peptide hormones. Additionaly, this study evaluated serum levels of luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), estradio...
