Improvement of Final Height in Idiopathic Central Precocious Puberty is Associated with Delay of Bone Maturation with GnRH Agonist Therapy Under the Age of 7 Years

Vuralli Dogus , Gonc E. Nazli , Ozon Z. Alev , Kandemir Nurgun , Alikasifoglu Ayfer

Background: GnRHa therapy is shown to be beneficial in increasing final height when started before 6 years of age in girls with idiopathic CPP(iCPP). However controversial data exist in improvement of final height whose pubertal signs appear after age of 6.Aim: To investigate effect of age of onset of GnRHa therapy on final height n girls with iCPP, and to evaluate factors affecting height gain.<st...

To Whom Should Central Nervous System Imaging be Performed in Girls with Central Precocious Puberty (CPP)?

Vuralli Dogus , Gonc E. Nazli , Alikasifoglu Ayfer , Kandemir Nurgun , Ozon Z. Alev

Background: Organic lesions are present in 5-10% of cases with CPP. Determinants of an increased risk for organic pathology underlying CPP in girls are debatable. CNS imaging is recommended for girls who have pubertal signs before 6 years of age. Although neurological findings may suggest organic pathology, other clinical features and hormonal variables have not been adequately examined.Aim: To analyze clinical&h...

GH Deficiency in a Case with Neurofibromatosis-Noonan Syndrome

Vuralli Dogus , Gonc E Nazli , Vidaud Dominique , Ozon Z Alev , Alikasifoglu Ayfer , Kandemir Nurgun

Background: Neurofibromatosis-Noonan Syndrome (NFNS) is a distinct entity which has variable features of both neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) and Noonan syndrome (NS). In majority of cases NF1 mutations have been demonstrated. Short stature is one of the major causes for these patients requiring medical attention. GH deficiency (GHD) may accompany in some cases with NF1 or NS cases, however there are rare case reports on NFNS receiving GH therapy.Objective and...

Severe Undervirilisation in a 46,XY Case due to a Novel Mutation in HSD17B3 Gene

Alikasifoglu Ayfer , Vuralli Dogus , Hiort Olaf , Gonc E Nazli , Ozon Z Alev , Kandemir Nurgun

Background: 17-β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 3 (17-β-HSD3) deficiency is a rare disorder of sex development due to impaired conversion of androstenedione to testosterone. Children with 46,XY karyotype often have female appearing external or ambiguous genitalia at birth. At the time of puberty, virilisation can occur. Therefore 46,XY patients with HSD17B3 gene defects should be raised as male.Objective and hypotheses: When a child with 46,XY ka...

Long Term Effects of Bisphosphonate Treatment in a Case with Infantile Onset Severe form of Juvenile Paget’s Disease

Gonc E Nazli , Ozon Z Alev , Buyukyilmaz Gonul , Alikasifoglu Ayfer , Simsek Ozlem , Kandemir Nurgun

Background: Juvenile Paget’s disease is a rare autosomal recessive osteopathy. Patients presenting in infancy develop severe bone deformities and may never walk. Bisphosphonate therapy is used to decrease bone turnover and it has generally good responses in milder forms of the disease. However there is no long-term experience of bisphosphonates in severe infantile forms.Case report: A 9 month-old boy was referred to our clinic for bone deformities. ...

Cardiovascular risk factors in adolescents with type 1 diabetes: Prevalence and gender differences

Vuralli Dogus , Jalilova Lala , Alikasifoglu Ayfer , Ozon Z. Alev , Gonc E. Nazli , Kandemir Nurgun ,

Introduction: Obesity may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1DM). Risk of CVD in girls with T1DM is suggested to be higher than boys, however data pertaining to risk of CVD in boys are limited. The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of obesity and risk factors of CVD in adolescents with T1DM as well as the impact of gender on these parameters.Methods: This ...
