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...

Two male siblings with extremely tall stature, moderate mental retardation and a deletion of ASH1L at chromosome 1q22.

Birkebæk Niels , Lildballe Dorte

Background: Several symmetric monogenic overgrowth syndromes with tall stature have been described, which is why children with syndromic tall stature should undergo comprehensive diagnostics. Tall stature has not been associated with chromosome 1.Objective: To present height growth and diagnostics in two male siblings with extreme tall stature and moderate mental retardation. Both had a deletion of ASH1L at chro...

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...

A novel heterozygous STAT5B variant in a patient with resistant atopic dermatitis and short stature.

Bahar Semra , Tolga Ozgen Ilker , Uyanık Bulent

Introduction: Growth hormone (GH) exerts its effect through insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I), an intracellular signalling molecule whose production is stimulated by STAT-5b after binding to the growth hormone receptor. STAT-5b deficiency, is characterized by short stature, immune dysregulation and chronic lung disease. And these occur as a result of disruption of the growth hormone axis. Our case is an example of STAT-5b gene mutation, which is a rare dise...
