A 19-Year-Old Adolescent with Short Stature and Scrotal Tumour

Heldt Katrin , L'Allemand Dagmar , Waibel Peter

Introduction: Primordial short stature can have many different causes. In addition to maternal factors (e.g. placental insufficiency), genetic or skeletal disorders may be found in the child. It is important to identify the underlying aetiology in time, since not only the risk of diabetes is increased, but also the prevalence of insufficient gonadal function and malignancy, e.g. in mixed gonadal dysgenesis (MGD).Case report: A 19 year old adolescent pres...

Effect of Marijuana Use on Thyroid Function and Autoimmunity

Malhotra Sonali , Homel Peter , Motaghedi Roja

Background: Cannabis use has been legalised in four states in USA. However, endocrine effects of marijuana use are largely unknown. Published experiments on animals have suggested that acute cannabis exposure may lead to suppressed thyroid function, but human studies are limited. Of interest, some studies have shown that cannabis has immunomodulatory effects.Objective and hypotheses: We carried out a cross sectional analysis of data by National Health an...

Idiopathic Infantile Hypercalcemia: Mutations in SLC34A1 and CYP24A1 in Two Siblings and Fathers

Güven Ayla , Konrad Martin , Schlingmann Karl Peter

Background: Both CYP24A1 and SLC34A1 gene mutations are responsible for idiopathic infantile hypercalcemia (IIH). Whereas loss-of-function mutations in CYP24A1 (25-OH-vitamin D-24-hydroxylase) lead to a defect in the inactivation of active 1,25(OH)2-vitamin D3, mutations in SLC34A1 encoding renal sodium-phosphate co-transporter NaPi-IIa lead to primary renal phosphate wasting combined with an inappropri...

Long-term Outcomes of Osteogenesis Imperfecta in the Bisphosphonate Era

Feehan Andrew , Zacharin Margaret , Lim Angelina , Simm Peter

Background: Bisphosphonates have been used for treatment of bone fragility disorders for over 25 years to increase bone mineral density (BMD). Anecdotally, bisphosphonate-treated Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) has a different trajectory to the natural history of untreated OI, with minimal published evidence to support this clinical observation.Aims: To describe functional outcomes of a cohort of adults with OI, stratified according to severity and treated ...

Congenital Hyperinsulinism: Management and Outcome in West of Scotland

Eltonbary Khadiga , Robinson Peter , Banerjee Indi , Shaikh Mohammed Guftar

Introduction: Hyperinsulinemic hypoglycaemia (HH) is the most frequent cause of persistent hypoglycaemia in neonates and infants. The most severe forms of HH are inherited and referred to as Congenital Hyperinsulinism (CHI). Hypoglycaemia is the main feature of CHI, and early diagnosis and immediate management are essential to reduce the high risk of neurological damage. Diazoxide is the mainstay of medical treatment, with surgery being an option in appropriate cases.<p cl...

Pulling the Brakes – ‘Catch Down Growth’: A Phenomenon for Achieving Mid-parental Height Centile After Acquired, All-cause, Brain Injury

Kraus Fabian B T , Hindmarsh Peter C , Spoudeas Helen A

Introduction: Of any pituitary dysfunction following brain injury, growth hormone (GH) deficiency (GHD) is the most prevalent. The cut-point for defining GHD has been placed at 7 ng/mL representing optimum test performance. We hypothesised this cut-off may be set too low for genetically taller children with acquired brain injury, notably brain tumours, who demonstrate severe growth failure but repeatedly fail to meet diagnostic thresholds for GH replacement until several centi...

Assessment of Initial Investigation Requested in Adolescents with Menstrual Disorders

Charamanta Maria , Michala Lina , Drakakis Peter , Yasmin Ephia , Creighton Sarah

Backround: Menstrual disorders are common among the adolescent girls. We examined the initial investigations performed in adolescents, presenting with frequent, heavy or painful periods. Although, usually abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) in adolescent women is attributable to immaturity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, underlying conditions such as coagulation disorders and anemia should always kept in mind. However, neither the laboratory nor the ultrasound investig...

Transcriptomics and Machine Learning Methods Accurately Predict Diagnosis and Severity of Childhood Growth Hormone Deficiency

Murray Philip , Stevens Adam , Koledova Ekaterina , Chatelain Pierre , Clayton Peter

Background: The diagnosis of Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) involves the use of GH stimulation tests that require day case admission, multiple blood sampling and are associated with significant adverse effects.Aim: To assess the utility of gene expression (GE) profiling and candidate SNP analysis for the diagnosis of and classification of GHD.Method: Pre-pubertal treatment-naïve children with GHD (n=98) were enrolled from the...

Genetic Insights from Children with Idiopathic Short Stature in the EPIGROW Study

Perchard Reena , Murray Philip , Payton Anthony , Clayton Peter

Background: EPIGROW was a prospective European epidemio-genetic study in children with idiopathic short stature (ISS).Objectives: To identify (1) differences in frequencies of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in growth related genes between ISS children and controls, and (2) associations between growth characteristics, IGF status and SNPs in these genes.Methods: Sequence data from EPIGROW was used to determine the difference ...

In vitro and in vivo Evidence for a Growth Inhibitory Role of the Transcription Factor ZBTB38 Throughout Pre- and Post-Natal Life

Parsons Sam , Stevens Adam , Whatmore Andrew , Murray Philip , Clayton Peter

Background: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the promotor and 5Â’UTR of the transcriptional factor, ZBTB38, are associated with adult height and idiopathic short stature although their precise auxological effects have not previously been described. In addition, the molecular mechanisms through which ZBTB38 affects growth have not been fully elucidated but potential downstream mediators are suggested to include MCM10 or IGF2.Objectives: <...
