Background: Juvenile Pagets disease (JPD), an ultra-rare, debilitating bone disease stemming from unopposed RANKL action due to loss of functional osteoprotegerin (OPG) is caused by recessive mutations in TNFRSF11B. A genotype-phenotype correlation spanning from mild to very severe forms is described.Objective and hypotheses: To describe the complexity of the human phenotype of OPG deficiency in more detail and to investigate heterozygous mutation carrie...

Carney complex 1 (CNC, OMIM# 160980) is an autosomal-dominantly inherited complex tumor predisposition syndrome associated with skin pigment abnormalities and neoplasms of heart, endocrine glands and other organs. CNC is caused by heterozygous constitutional loss-of-function variants in the PRKAR1A-gene. PRKAR1A codes for the cAMP-dependent protein kinase type I-alpha regulatory subunit, an enzyme that represents an integral part of protein kinase A (PKA) tha...

Background: Prenatal dexamethasone treatment (Pdex) has been used since the 1980s to prevent virilization in female offspring suspected to have congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). However, due to lack of strong evidence for its best practice as well as limited data regarding long term adverse effects, use of dex is highly controversial. This study reveals the current medical practice regarding Pdex in female fetuses at risk of CAH due to 21 hydroxylase defic...
