Diagnostical Approach to Adrenal Failure in Symptomatical Preterm Infants – is Saliva Derived Free Cortisol the Solution?

Reschke Felix , Sebastian Brenner , Angela Huebner

Introduction: Newborn premature infants are susceptible to develop relative adrenal insufficiency (AI) following transition from fetal to extrauterine life. Clinical signs of AI include hypoglycemia, dysbalanced electrolytes, fatigue and low blood pressure. Collecting serum cortisol samples itself is stressful for the infant, which challenges - in addition to analytic problems due to interference between fetal, placental and maternal derived steroids – th...

Gender Mender, or Defender: Understanding Decision Making in Aotearoa/New Zealand for People Born with a Variation in Sex Characteristics

Steers Denise , Ballantyne Angela , Stubbe Maria , Collings Sunny , Wiltshire Esko

People born with a variation in sex characteristics (VSC) face the challenge of having atypically sexed bodies. This quantitative study recruited 10 young adults with a VSC (14 to 24 years); 18 parents of children with a VSC; and 22 health professionals working in the VSC field. Interviews were semi structured, digitally recorded and transcribed. Using thematic analysis, we identified key themes regarding participants' experiences of health care decision-making. This study...

Subcutaneous Ossifications in Children - Think About AHO!

Flury Monika , Quitter Friederike , Hiort Olaf , Huebner Angela

Background: Pseudohypoparathyroidism (Albright hereditary osteodystrophy (AHO)) is a rare congenital disorder mainly affecting bone and thyroid metabolism as a result of resistance of parathyroid hormone (PTH) and thyrotropin (TSH), gonadotropins, growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) and calcitonin in the target tissues. According to the consensus statement "Diagnosis and management of pseudohypoparathyroidism and related disorders" published in 201...

A Case of Neonatal Graves in a Premature Infant with Negative Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulins (TSI)

Samuel Angela , Davis Vanessa , Minutti Carla , Mantis Stelios

Background: Neonatal hyperthyroidism is almost always transient and related to the passage of maternal thyroid stimulating immunoglobulins (TSI). Positive TSI levels in a neonate is often diagnostic of neonatal Graves disease. The manifestation of symptoms has not been well characterized in premature infants.Clinical Case: A female infant was delivered at 27×4/7 weeks gestational age, with a birth weight of 827 g. Her mother was diagnosed with Grave...

Genetic Engineering Using TALENs to Study the Redox Regulation of Steroidogenesis in vivo

Griffin Aliesha , Parajes Silvia , Taylor Angela , Mueller Ferenc , Krone Nils

Background: Transcription activator-like effects nucleases (TALENs) have recently been developed as an efficient method for in vivo genome engineering. Zebrafish are becoming an increasingly popular model to study translational aspects in endocrinology. The redox cofactor ferredoxin (FDX1) is essential for mitochondrial cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes including those required for steroidogenesis. In vitro, FDX1 modifications influence the catalytic rate of ster...

Atypical Presentation of Six Patients with Mutations in the Side Chain Cleavage Enzyme CYP11A1

Chan Li , Huebner Angela , Spoudeas Helen , Cheetham Tim , Metherell Louise

Background: Mutations in the side chain cleavage enzyme, (CYP11A1) cause congenital adrenal insufficiency, with complete or partial 46XY sex reversal. The disorder manifests with adrenal and gonadal insufficiencies along with derangements of the renin/angiotensin system.Objective and hypotheses: To obtain a genetic diagnosis in six patients with adrenal insufficiency of unknown aetiology. Patients 1 and 2 are sisters with ACTH resistance, having...
