Background: Gitelmann syndrome, a rare autosomal recessive disorder, is characterised with hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis, hypomagnesemia and hypocalciuria. Mutations in the SLC12A3 gene, which encodes for ‘Thiazid sensitive sodium chloride co-transporter channels’ located at the renal distal convoluted tubules account for the underlying molecular mechanism of Gitelmann syndrome. Although, is less frequent than those seen in ‘Bartter Syndrome’, the exact m...

Unsal Yagmur , Baltu Demet , Gulhan Bora , Visal Okur Fatma , Duzova Ali , Ozon Alev , Topaloğlu Rezan , Gonc Nazlı ,

Calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) are widely used in pediatric transplantation for prevention of graft rejection, prophylaxis and treatment of graft versus host disease. Though hyperkalemia is a common adverse effect (10-45%), alterations in renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in CNI-induced hyperkalemia are not well elucidated. Consequently, CNIs vital to transplantation are usually switched. Here, we describe two cases with CNI-induced hyperkalemia due to hyporeninemic hypoaldo...

Saffari Fatemeh , Homaei Ali

We report a large family with several cases of 46 XY and a new mutation in the 17-β-HSD3 gene.The proposita was an 11-year-old girl and the first child of a consanguineous family. She was born by cesarean section with a height of 52 cm and a weight of 4200 grams. The external genitalia were completely female and had a short vaginal pouch. She had palpable gonads in her inguinal area and underwent bilateral gonadectomy at the age of two. Other physical examinations were n...

Growth Hormone Resistance; The Iraqi experience

Al-Jumaili Ali ,

Introduction: Primary growth hormone resistance or growth hormone insensitivity syndrome (Laron syndrome) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by deletions or mutations in the growth hormone receptor gene or by post receptor defects. Laron is characterized by a clinical appearance of sever growth hormone deficiency with high levels of growth hormone in contrast to low insulin-like growth factor 1 values and in this cases are refractory to both endogenous ...

A Rare and Unexpected Cause of Diabetes in Childhood

Makaya Taffy , Basu Supriyo , Ali Aishatu

Background: Pancreatogenic diabetes is rare in children. The prevalence is 5–10% of all cases of diabetes in the developed world. The underlying pathophysiology is destruction of islet cells by pancreatic inflammation.Case: A 15-year old previously healthy boy presented with polyuria, polydipsia, abdominal pain and loss of weight (LOW) over several weeks. Family history revealed a three-generational history of diabetes including reported type-1 (T1D...

Evaluation of S-100B, Antioxidant and Oxidative Capacity Before and After the Treatment in Children with Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Kaya Cemil , Atas Ali , Aksoy Nurten

Background: Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious condition with high rates of morbidity and mortality in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Calcium-binding protein S100B is a cell damage marker glycopeptide that is mainly produced by astrocytes. Oxidative stress might be defined as an imbalance between anti-oxidative defense of the body and free radical production responsible for peroxidation of lipid layer of cell walls.Objective and hypotheses: In p...
