Rare Causes of Primary Adrenal Insufficiency at King Faisal Specialist Hospital -Retrospective Study

Alsagheir Afaf , Alotaibi Mohammed , Alrayes Lamya

Introduction:• Adrenal insufficiency is a rare, but potentially fatal medical condition 1.• In children, the cause is most commonly congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) but in recent years a growing number of causative gene mutations have been identified resulting in syndromes that share primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) characteristics.<p cl...

Grave's Disease: What Place in the Child's Hyperthyroidism?

Merad Mohamed Samir , Mohammedi Fatiha , Benouis Amina

Background: Hyperthyroidism is a condition rarely found in children. In the majority of cases, it is a Grave's disease whose clinical expression is very similar to that observed in adults.Objective: describe the clinical, evolutionary and therapeutic epidemiological features in children with hyperthyroidism and especially Grave's disease.Materials and Methods: This is a ret...

Dysphagia and Dyspnea by Lingual Thyroid Mass in a Young Child: What To Do?

Merad Mohamed Samir , Mohammedi Fatiiha , Benouis Amina

Background: Ectopic thyroid tissue can be found anywhere along the normal path of thyroid descent, but is most commonly found at the base of the tongue, in which case it may be referred to as a lingual thyroid. Although the patients are usually asymptomatic, it can lead to symptoms such as dysphonia and dysphagia. We present a child patient with a lingual thyroid resulting in severe dysphagia that was cured surgically.Case presen...

Fahr Syndrome in Young Boy with Hypoparathyroidism

Merad Mohamed Samir , Mohammedi Fatiha , Benouis Amina

Background: Fahr syndrome is a rare degenerative disease, characterized by the presence of calcification of the basal ganglia.Autosomal recessive or dominant, variable penetrance.Usually asymptomatic in the first 2 decades, the disease typically manifests itself either at 30 years of age by the appearance of neuropsychiatric disorders, or at age 60 by progressive dementia with extrapyramidal syndrome.Case p...

Thyroid Cancer in a Child with Graves's Disease

Merad Mohamed Samir , Mohammedi Fatiha , Benouis Amina

The association of thyroid carcinoma with Graves' disease is considered rare and remains exceptional because it accounts for only 1-2% of childhood cancers.We report an observation of a 10-year-old girl from a goitrous endemic area (CHLEF) with exophthalmia. It shows signs of obvious thyrotoxicosis with with a very firm, homogeneous and asymmetrical goiter on the right.. A hormonal assessment, an echography and a thyroid scintigraphy confirm the ...

Karyotyping of oocytes, granulosa cells and stromal cells in the ovarian tissue from patients with Turner syndrome: a pilot study

Peek Ron , Schleedoorn Myra , Beerendonk Catharina , van der Velden Janielle , Braat Didi , Smeets Dominique , Fleischer Kathrin

Summary Answer: Most primordial/primary oocytes were found to have a 46,XX karyotype. Chromosome patterns of the ovarian cells were different from that observed in other tissues.Background: TS is a chromosomal condition associated with partial or complete absence of one of the two X-chromosomes. Females with TS have a limited reproductive lifespan due to an accelerated loss of germ cells. It has been hypothesized that vi...

Diazoxide Responsive Congenital Hyperinsulinism in a Patient with Dual Genetic Aetiology (HNF4A and ABCC8 Mutation)

Giri Dinesh , Flanagan Sarah E , Park Julie , Ellard Sian , Didi Mo , Sennaippan Senthil

Background: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) results from unregulated insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells, which leads to persistent hypoglycaemia. Mutations in nine different genes are reported and phenotypic variability exists both within and between the genetic subgroups. Variable penetrance has been described in some families with the same mutation; for example HNF4A mutations cause neonatal hypoglycaemia and/or maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY).<p...

Urinary Gonadotrophins in Girls with Turner Syndrome

Boncompagni Alessandra , McNeilly Jane , Murtaza Mohammed , Iughetti Lorenzo , Mason Avril

Background: Girls with Turner Syndrome (TS) are at an increased risk of primary ovarian failure. Oestrogen replacement is commenced at around the age of 12 years, in girls who do not enter puberty spontaneously, with incremental changes to the dose over the next 3 years until adult replacement doses are achieved. We have previously shown good correlation between serum and urinary LH (uLH) and FSH (uFSH) in children being assessed for disorders of puberty.<...

Diagnostic Value of Anti-Mullerian Hormone Level in Adolescent Females with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Abdelghaffar Shereen , Ibrahim Amany , Rabie Walaa , Mohammed Asmaa

In adolescence, diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is challenging because characteristics of normal puberty often overlap with signs and symptoms of PCOS. Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is one of the important biomarkers suggested to confirm the diagnosis of PCOS and to manage the treatment process in adolescence. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic role of anti-müllerian hormone for PCOS in adolescent females, and to study its association t...

Experience of Burosumab Therapy in Four Children with X-linked Hypophosphataemia in Saudi Arabia

Al-Juraibah Fahad , Al-Dubayee Mohammed , Babiker Amir

X-linked hypophosphataemia (XLH) is the most common form of inherited hypophosphataemic rickets, caused by loss-of-function mutations in the gene encoding phosphate-regulating endopeptidase homologue X-linked (PHEX), resulting in excess circulating fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23).1,2 In children, clinical features include delayed walking, waddling gait, leg bowing, pain, spontaneous dental abscesses and growth failure. Current therapies do not treat the underly...
