CCDC149: a Novel Gene Associated with Multiple Pituitary Hormone Deficiency

Rath Shoshana , Elias-Assad Ghadir , Abozaid Said , Nasser Samra Nadra , Mandel Hannah

Background: Idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) is highly genetically heterogeneous. To date, about 50 causative genes have been identified, estimated to account for up to 50% of hereditary cases. With next generation sequencing (NGS) technology now in wide clinical use, it is increasingly possible to determine the underlying genetic etiology of isolated and combined pituitary hormone deficiencies.Objective: We...

Introduction: POU1F1 is an essential transcription factor for the differentiation, proliferation and survival of somatotrophs, lactotrophs, and thyrotrophs. Mutations in the POU1F1 gene are characterized by growth hormone (GH), thyrotropin and prolactin deficiencies, commonly presenting with growth retardation and central hypothyroidism. Since the first report in 1992, about 26 mutations have been identified in POU1F1.<...

Background: Survivors of childhood cancer are at increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in later life. Although the brain is known to be involved in control of metabolic functions including appetite regulation and energy expenditure (1), little data are available relating to the risk of metabolic dysfunction secondary to cerebral injury. Several studies have attempted to investigate the impact of exercise on physical and psychosocial parameters in survivors o...

Pseudoexon Activation in Nicotinamide Nucleotide Transhydrogenase in Two Siblings with Familial Glucocorticoid Deficiency

Chan Li , Novoselova Tatiana , Rath Shoshana , Carpenter Karen , Atkinson H , Dickinson Jan , Pachter Nick , Price G , Choong Cathy , Metherell Lou

Background: Two siblings of non-consanguineous parents presented with FGD, demonstrated by ACTH resistance with glucocorticoid but not mineralocorticoid deficiency. The proband presented at 21 months, unresponsive with hypoglycaemia (BGL 1.5 mmol/l). Endocrine evaluation subsequent to resuscitation indicated adrenal insufficiency with elevated ACTH. Hydrocortisone therapy was commenced. A sibling, 4 years younger than the proband had a short Synacthen test (SST) performed on d...
