Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a complex heterogeneous disease affecting 1 in 40.000 newborns. Recurrent hypoketotic hypoglycaemia led to permanent mental and motor disabilities in 30-40% of children. Histologically three types had been differentiated: focal, diffuse and atypical. Up to now, only focal-type CHI can be permanently cured by focus removal. Focal-type CHI is characterized by paternal inherited mutation of ABCC8 or KCNJ11 mutations. Therefore mutation anal...

Somatic Paternal UPD on Chromosome 11p15 in Focal Form of Congenital Hyperinsulinism (CHI) Causes Monoallelic Expression of Mutant ABCC8 and KCNJ11

Background: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a disorder characterised by dysregulation of insulin secretion that leads to severe hypoglycaemia in neonates and infants. The focal form of CHI is caused by an autosomal recessive mutation in the genes ABCC8 or KCNJ11 inherited from the father and a second somatic event in the affected islet of Langerhans.Objective: We report molecular genetic examination of focal pancreatic lesions of patients receiving t...

Influence of Genetic Variation on the Response to Recombinant Human Growth Hormone Treatment in Children with GH Deficiency: An Analysis of 13 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms and the GH Receptor Exon 3 Deletion

Background: Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is the most common endocrine cause of impaired growth. Recombinant human GH (rhGH) therapy does not always achieve complete catch-up growth or final height within the genetic target height despite standardised treatment guidelines. The factors causing the considerable variability in responsiveness to rhGH have not yet been fully elucidated. Apart from a number of auxological and clinical parameters, genetic factors also appear to pla...

Management of endocrine aspects of Noonan syndrome across Europe: A subanalysis of a European clinical practice survey

Edouard Thomas , Zenker Martin , Ostman-Smith Ingegerd , Ortega Castello Eduardo , Wolf Cordula , Burkitt-Wright Emma , Verloes Alain , Garcia-Minaur Sixto , Tartaglia Marco , Shaikh Guftar , Lebl Jan ,

Aim: There is a current lack of international guidelines for managing the endocrine aspects of Noonan syndrome (NS). A clinical practice survey was developed to identify knowledge gaps and differences in the management of patients with NS across Europe.Materials and Methods: A 60-question clinical practice survey was developed for clinical geneticists, paediatric endocrinologists and paediatric cardiologists directly involved in treating...
