Yildiz Melek , Onal Hasan , Aydin Banu , Akgun Abdurrahman , Dogan Beyza Belde , Topal Neval , Akcay Teoman , Adal Erdal

Background: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by a defect in any of the enzymatic steps of adrenal steroidogenesis. It occurs due to mutations in genes that encode enzymes involved in the synthesis of cortisol from cholesterol. The most common cause is 21-hydroxylase deficiency, with 11-beta hydroxylase, 3-beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, 17-alpha hydroxylase and POR deficiency being among rarer causes.Objec...

A Neurological Disease Mimicking Central Hypothyroidism: MCT8 Deficiency

Demirbas Ozgecan , Eren Erdal , Tarim Omer

Introduction: Monocarboxylate transporter 8 (MCT8) is necessary for the transport of T3 to neurons. The case presented here is a male infant with neuromotor retardation initially treated for central hypothyroidism who showed no benefit from treatment and a final diagnosis of MCT8 deficiency was made.Case report: A male infant at 13 months of age was brought to the clinic because he was unable to sit without support. The perinatal history revealed that he...

Evaluation of AGP Reports in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes Using Intermittently Viewed Continuous Glucose Measurement System (iCGM)

Eren Erdal , Ongen Yasemin Denkboy , Demirbas Ozgecan , Tarim Omer

Introduction: Reduction in glycemic variability and HbA1c levels are achieved by the use of continuous glucose measurement systems (CGM) in the patient with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Intermittently viewed CGM (iCGM) using flash technology have been used increasingly by diabetics and their families because of practicality. Evaluating of ambulatory glucose profiles (AGP) is very important in the management of T1DM.Aim and Me...

Calcaneal Apophysitis (Sever’s Disease) Development in a Case Using Growth Hormone

Kurnaz Erdal , Erdeve Senay Savas , Aycan Zehra , Cetinkaya Semra

Background: Orthopedic complications related to the GH are rare and there is no clear pathological association between the use of GH and these complications. Calcaneal apophysitis is an inflammation of the apophysis and is caused by the constant pull of the Achilles tendon. A literature search did not reveal a similar case of calcaneal apophysitis during GH use.Case presentation: A 13-year-old male receiving GH treatment for isolated GH deficiency presen...

Background: 46,XX gonadal dysgenesis is a rare condition linked to delayed puberty, absence of spontaneous pubertal development, and primary amenorrhea related to hypergonadotropic hypogonadism (Hh). External genitalia are typically female with no ambiguity. Although ovarian development is an active process with multiple gene involvement, the genetic etiology of this condition is usually unknown. DCAF17 has recently been implicated in the development ...

SHOX Gene Deletion Screening by FISH in Children with Short Stature and Characteristics of Patients

Kurnaz Erdal , Savaş-Erdeve Şenay , Cetinkaya Semra , Aycan Zehra

Background: Short stature homeobox-containing (SHOX) gene that strongly affects height. Due to high prevalence of SHOX gene mutations, in all children with unexplained short stature should be investigated to benefit from early growth hormone (GH) treatment. The aim of this clinical study was to determine the rate of SHOX haploinsufficiency in short stature patients and describe their anthropometric measurements.Methods: Between...
