Calcaneal Apophysitis (Sever’s Disease) Development in a Case Using Growth Hormone

Kurnaz Erdal , Erdeve Senay Savas , Aycan Zehra , Cetinkaya Semra

Background: Orthopedic complications related to the GH are rare and there is no clear pathological association between the use of GH and these complications. Calcaneal apophysitis is an inflammation of the apophysis and is caused by the constant pull of the Achilles tendon. A literature search did not reveal a similar case of calcaneal apophysitis during GH use.Case presentation: A 13-year-old male receiving GH treatment for isolated GH deficiency presen...

A Novel DCAF17 Homozygous Mutation in a Girl with Woodhouse-Sakati Syndrome and its Role in the Endocrine Glands

Kurnaz Erdal , Türkyilmaz Ayberk , Yarali Oguzhan , Demir Berrin , Çayir Atilla

Background: 46,XX gonadal dysgenesis is a rare condition linked to delayed puberty, absence of spontaneous pubertal development, and primary amenorrhea related to hypergonadotropic hypogonadism (Hh). External genitalia are typically female with no ambiguity. Although ovarian development is an active process with multiple gene involvement, the genetic etiology of this condition is usually unknown. DCAF17 has recently been implicated in the development ...

SHOX Gene Deletion Screening by FISH in Children with Short Stature and Characteristics of Patients

Kurnaz Erdal , Savaş-Erdeve Şenay , Cetinkaya Semra , Aycan Zehra

Background: Short stature homeobox-containing (SHOX) gene that strongly affects height. Due to high prevalence of SHOX gene mutations, in all children with unexplained short stature should be investigated to benefit from early growth hormone (GH) treatment. The aim of this clinical study was to determine the rate of SHOX haploinsufficiency in short stature patients and describe their anthropometric measurements.Methods: Between...

Follow-up in Children with Non-obese and Non-autoimmune Subclinical Hypothyroidism

Ergin Zeynep , Savas-Erdeve Senay , Kurnaz Erdal , Cetinkaya Semra , Aycan Zehra

Introduction: Subclinical hypothyroidism is a form of thyroid dysfunction in which TSH level is high while serum free thyroxin (fT4) and free triiodothyronine (fT3) are within normal reference range. In this study, it was aimed to investigate effects of subclinical hypothyroidism on anthropometric characteristics, blood pressure, glucose and lipid metabolism by evaluating course of subclinical hypothyroidism during follow-up without treatment.<p class...

Two sibling cases with heterozygous calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) gene mutation

Kurnaz Erdal , Savaş-Erdeve Şenay , Demirel Nihal , Aycan Zehra , Cetinkaya Semra ,

Background: Heterozygous inactivating mutations in the calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) gene cause mild hypercalcemia, normal to slightly elevated parathormone (PTH) levels and may vary from an asymptomatic clinical picture to a mild course. This clinical picture is also called familial hypercalcemic hypocalciuria. In this study, it is aimed to present two sibling cases due to CaSR mutation with interesting features.Case...

Clinical, Biochemical and Echocardiographic Evaluation of Patients with Congenital Rickets Due to Maternal Vitamin D Deficiency

Cayir Atilla , Akyigit Ali , Gullu Ufuk Utku , Kahveci Hasan , Yildiz Duran , Kurnaz Erdal , Vuralli Dogus , Kaya Abdulkadir , Demirbilek Huseyin

Objective: Vitamin deficient (VDD) rickets can manifest with skeletal (hypocalcemia, hypophosphatemia, elevated serum alkaline phosphatase and defective bone mineralization) and extra-skeletal findings. There are certain number of case reports and limited number of small scale studies reporting dilated cardiomyopathy due to VDD rickets.The aim of the present study is to evaluate the clinical, biochemical and echocardiographic features of...

Systemic Pseudohypoaldosteronism Type 1 Due to 3 Novel Mutations in SCNN1A and SCNN1B Genes; Report of 3 Cases

Cayir Atilla , Demirelli Yasar , Yildiz Duran , Kahveci Hasan , Yarali Oguzhan , Karaoglan Dogus Vuralli , Kurnaz Erdal , Demirbilek Huseyin

Objective: The systemic form pseudohypoaldosteronism type 1 (PHA1) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized with defective sodium transport in many organ systems including kidney, lungs, colon, sweat glands and salivary glands. Homozygous or compound heterozygous loss-of-function mutations in the genes encoding amiloride sensitive epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) account for genetic causes of systemic PHA1.Case 1: Male patient presented with vomi...

AMH Level of Infants with Premature Thelarche and Possible Relationship between AMH and Mini-puberty

Sahin Nursel Muratoglu , Bayramoglu Elvan , Ozcan Hatice Nursun , Kurnaz Erdal , Keskin Meliksah , Erdeve Senay Savas , Cetinkaya Semra , Aycan Zehra

Background/aims: AMH levels of mini puberty are higher than prepubertal period. In this study we investigated AMH levels in infants with premature thelarche who are presumed to have exaggerated mini puberty due to inadequate/late suppression of pubertal activation.Methods: Fifty five female infants between 3 months and 3 years of age with premature thelarche were enrolled in the study and 49 healthy girls in the same age group were included in the study....

Background: Inactivating mutations in the calcium sensing receptor (CASR) may result in disorders of calcium homeostasis manifesting as familial benign hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FBHH) and neonatal severe hyperparathyroidsm (NSHPT).Objective and hypotheses: We report two cases with NSHPT together with their treatment and long-term follow-up.Method: Two cases were referred with severe hypercalcemia in the neonatal period....

A Rare Cause of Short Stature: Patient with 3M Syndrome Revealed a New Mutation in Osbl1 Gene

Keskin Melikşah , Sahin Nursel Muratoglu , Kurnaz Erdal , Bayramoglu Elvan , Erdeve Senay Savas , Aycan Zehra , Cetinkaya Semra

The 3M syndrome is a rare autosomal disorder that can lead to short stature, dysmorphic features and skeletal abnormalities with normal intelligence. A-one year and four month-female patient had been reffered to our clinic for growth and developmental delay. Case history revealed a birth weight of 1740 grams on 39th week of gestation, with 42 cm body height and no prior hereditary conditions of clinical significance in her family. On physical examination, her height was 67 cm ...
