Hypothalamic Obesity in Children with Craniopharyngioma: Prevalence and Risk Factors of Obesity and Longitudinal Trends of BMI

Cho Ja Hyang , Kim Ja Hye , Kim Yoo-Mi , Choi Jin-Ho , Yoo Han-Wook

Background: Craniopharyngioma is the most common parasellar tumor in childhood arising from remnants of Rathke’s pouch. As the hypothalamus plays a vital role in regulation of body weight by balancing energy intake and expenditure, hypothalamic damage by structural lesions is one of the most common causes of hypothalamic obesity. This study investigated prevalence, risk factors for the development of hypothalamic obesity, and consequent morbidities in children following t...

Background: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of autosomal recessive disorders characterized by a defect in cortisol biosynthesis. The most common form of CAH is the 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21-OHD), however, the incidence and the etiologic spectrum of other forms of CAH were not reported.Objective and hypotheses: This study describes the etiological distribution and clinical characteristics of CAH in a single academic centre.<p class...

A Case of DEND (Developmental Delay, Epilepsy, and Neonatal Diabetes) Syndrome with Heterozygous KCNJ11 Mutation Successfully Treated with Sulfonylurea Therapy

Kim Ja Hye , Cho Ja Hyang , Kang Eungu , Choi Jin-Ho , Kim Gu-Hwan , Yoo Han Wook

Background: Permanent neonatal diabetes mellitus is caused by mutations in the KATP channel subunits. DEND (Developmental delay, Epilepsy, and Neonatal Diabetes) syndrome is the most severe form of permanent neonatal diabetes. We experienced a patient with DEND syndrome, who was initially misdiagnosed as type 1 diabetes, who has been successfully switched from insulin injection to oral sulfonylurea therapy.Case presentation: A 50-day-old male ...

Patients with Disorders of sex development (DSD) can present with a large phenotypic spectrum and caused by a number of different genetic defects. Therefore, it is difficult to reach a specific diagnosis using traditional approaches including biochemical analysis and single gene sequencing in a number of patients with DSD. Recently, next-generation sequencing technologies have revolutionized the identification of causative genes with diseases with genetic heterogeneity using m...
