Background: Main concerns of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia Newborn Screening (CAH-NBS) are the high false-positive results (FPR) rate, low positive predictive value (PPV) and heterogeneity of confirmatory tests. Considering the CAH-NBS implementation in our country, our.Objectives: Objectives are to optimize the Neonatal 17OH-Progesterone (N17OHP) cutoffs and to evaluate the best serum confirmatory test.Methods: 473 983 newborns w...

Background: Most congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) patients carry mutations derived from conversion events involving the pseudogene, and the remaining carry new mutations varying according to ethnicity. A good genotype-phenotype correlation is observed, allowing the use of molecular analysis in clinical practice.Objective and hypotheses: To review the molecular diagnosis in a large cohort of CAH patients in order to create a diagnostic panel in our po...

Background: Few studies have focused on the quality of life (QoL) of patients with disorders of sex development (DSD).Objective and hypotheses: Our aim was to evaluate QoL in DSD patients with defined diagnoses followed until adulthood in a single tertiary centre.Method: Subjects: adult DSD patients (56 patients with 46,XX DSD – 49 with female social sex and seven with male social sex as well as 88 patients with 46,XY DSD &#15...

Introduction: DSD patients present varied degrees of atypical genitalia. The social sex assignment and the surgery decisions must be proceeded by a multidisciplinary team approach with the family. Surgeries should be only performed by experienced surgeons. The current trend is the early correction, but some patients and non-governmental entities argue that the surgeries should be delayed until the patient’s consent.Objective...

The high rate of false-positive (FP) results in congenital adrenal hyperplasia newborn screening (CAH-NBS) worldwide challenges NBS-programs and reinforces the need of high specificity subsequent tests. Few studies assessed the efficacy of different serum steroids by the available methodologies. Serum 21-deoxycortisol-21DF demonstrated a high diagnostic accuracy in CAH children/adults but was not evaluated in the NBS context. Objective: to evaluate the efficacy of confirmatory...
