Acanthosis Nigricans as a Presentation of Severe Insulin Resistance in Obese Children

Krajewska Maria , Nowaczyk Jędrzej , Labochka Dominika , Kucharska Anna

Acanthosis nigricans is a common skin presentation of insulin resistance. We may observe different forms of its sevirity. Pathogenesis of this disorder is correlated with an action of insulin to keratinocyte and dermal fibroblasts via interaction with IGFR1.We'd like to present a medical history of two patients admitted to our clinic because of severe acanthosis nigricans. Boys were at the age of 13 and 14 years. We diagnosed carbohydrate metabolism ...

Pubertal Development During GH Treatment with or without Additional GnRH Analogue Treatment in Short Children Born Small for Gestational Age

van der Steen M , Lem A J , Hokken-Koelega A C S

Background: GH treatment is effective in improving adult height (AH) in short children born Small for Gestational Age. If SGA children are short at the start of puberty, they could benefit from combined GH/GnRH Analogue (GnRHa) treatment.Objective and hypotheses: To determine the timing and progression of pubertal development in short SGA children, comparing GH treatment with combined GH/GnRHa treatment.Method: For the present stud...

Growth pattern of the nigerian child compared to international references

Elusiyan Jerome , Ibekwe MaryAnn Ugochi , Alkali Y , Agwu J. Chizo

Background: There are currently no specific growth charts for use in Nigerian children over the age of 5 years. Health workers rely on charts developed by the Center for Disease Control for children in USA (2000CDC US) or the UK 1990 growth charts for British children. It is unknown whether Nigerian children grow to the same height or at the same tempo as American or British children.Objective and hypotheses: To compare the growth of the Nigerian child t...

Clinical Follow-up of the First SF-1 Deficient Female Patient

Gerster Karine , Biason-Lauber Anna , Schoenle Eugen J

Background: Steroidogenic factor 1 (SF-1/NR5A1) plays a crucial role in regulating adrenal development, gonad determination and differentiation, and in the hypothalamic-pituitary control of reproduction and metabolism. In men (46, XY) mutations in SF-1/NR5A1 gene cause a wide phenotypic spectrum that ranges from complete testicular dysgenesis with Müllerian structures and amenorrhea, through individuals with mild clitoromegaly or genital ambiguity, to severe penoscrotal h...

Management of Gonads in Adults with Androgen Insensitivity: An International Survey

Maris Ellen , Looijenga L H J , Cools Martine

Background: Individuals with androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) have an increased risk for developing a germ cell cancer (GCC). The risk is low during childhood; therefore, gonads are commonly preserved until after puberty. Little is known about GCC development in AIS during adulthood. This question is particularly relevant as many adult AIS women decline gonadectomy.Objective and hypotheses: To gain insight in attitudes towards gonadectomy in various...

Metabolic Health in Short Children Born Small for Gestational Age Treated with GH and GnRHa: Results of a Randomised, Dose-response Trial

van der Steen M , Lem A J , van der Kaay D C M , Waarde W M Bakker-van , van der Hulst F J P C M , Neijens F S , Noordam C , Odink R J , Oostdijk W , Schroor E J , Sulkers E J , Westerlaken C , Hokken-Koelega A C S

Background: Previously we showed that pubertal children born small for gestational age (SGA) with a poor adult height (AH) expectation can benefit from treatment with GH 1 mg/m2 per day (~0.033 mg/kg per day) in combination with 2 years of GnRH analogue (GnRHa) and even more so with a double GH dose. GnRHa treatment is thought to have negative effects on body composition and blood pressure. Long-term effects and GH-dose effects on metabolic health in children treate...

Endocrine Profiling and Association with Ultrasound Measured Testicular Volume and Biometrics in a Cohort of Norwegian Boys

Madsen André , Oehme Ninnie , Bruserud Ingvild , Roelants Mathieu , Sagen Jørn , Mellgren Gunnar , Júlíusson Pétur

Introduction: Male puberty is initiated by endocrine signaling in the hypothalamic-pituitary axis whereby follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) enable testicular maturation and synthesis of testosterone. Recent publications have eluded to overnutrition and obesity as relevant factors that may accelerate the timing of puberty. Attainment of testicular volume (TV) 4 ml measured by Prader orchidometer remains the definition of male puber...

The Associations Between Neck – and Upper Arm Circumference with Cardiometabolic Risk Over Traditional Risk Factors in Adolescents - Data from Five EUROPEAN Countries (PreSTART-Study)

Weihrauch-Bluher Susann , Petroff David , Brady Emer M. , Gray Laura J. , Ribeiro Rogerio T. , Vergara Mitxeltorena I. , Gerasimidi-Vazeou Diana A. , Davies Melanie J.

Background: Prevalence and severity of obesity and associated comorbidities are increasing in adolescents. Data on neck and upper arm (UA) circumference in addition to established anthropometric measures to define cardiometabolic risk are limited to date.Methods: Data from Phase I of the EU-funded PreSTART-study (trial registration number NCT02545140) was applied. Demographic, clinical, biochemical and lifestyle data were collected in adolescent...

Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome Caused by a Deep Intronic Pseudoexon-Activating Mutation in the Androgen Receptor Gene

Background: Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS), ranging from complete (CAIS) to partial (PAIS) and to mild (MAIS) forms of androgen resistance, is caused by mutations in the X-linked AR gene that encodes the androgen receptor. Some cases, however, remain without a molecular genetic diagnosis that would confirm the diagnosis especially in cases that have phenotypic similarities with other 46,XY disorders of sex development.Objective and hypoth...

Early Treatment with Intravenous Bisphosphonates Prevents Severe Postnatal Bone Loss in Children with Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Rehberg Mirko , Heistermann Johanna , Schönau Eckhard , Semler Jörg , Hoyer-Kuhn Heike

Objective: Osteogenesis imperfecta is an inherited disorder characterised by bone fragility. Antiresorptive treatment with bisphosphonates is a well-established first line medical treatment in OI types III/IV. Nevertheless, there is no consensus on treatment modalities, like which bisphosphonate to use in which dose and when to initiate treatment. The objective of this work was to evaluate the therapeutic effect of a one-year treatment period with bisphosphona...
