Two Different Variants of Short Stature Homeobox-Containing Gene (SHOX) Mutation in the Same Family

Graf Stefanie , Santi Maristella , Losekoot Monique , Fluck Christa E.

Objectives: Deficiency of the short stature homeobox-containing (SHOX) gene is a potential etiology of short stature in children. The phenotypic spectrum of SHOX deficiency disorders, caused by haploinsufficiency of the SHOX-gene and inherited in a pseudo-autosomal dominant manner, is highly variable, even within the same family, ranging from nonspecific short stature to Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis (LWD). Short stature, mesomelia and Madelung deformity define the classic clin...

Diabetes Mellitus in a 16-Year-Old Boy Developing Multiple Neuro-Endocrine Dysfunctions in the Course: Is it Type 1 Diabetes or Wolfram Syndrome, or Both?

Santi Maristella , Emma Flück Christa , Böttcher Claudia

Introduction: Autosomal recessive mutations in the Wolfram syndrome type 1 gene are responsible for the classical Wolfram syndrome (OMIM_ 222300), also known by the acronym "DIDMOAD" (diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus (DM), optic atrophy and deafness). The gene encodes wolframin, a membrane glycoprotein, which helps to regulate the calcium homeostasis in the endoplasmic reticulum of many different tissues, including the pancreatic...
