Auger Julie , Oussalah Abderrahim , Lambert Laetitia , Vigneron Jacqueline , Jonveaux Philippe , Leheup Bruno

Background: Turner syndrome, characterized by complete or partial absence of second sexual chromosome, is responsible for phenotype of variable severity.Objective and hypotheses: The main objective of this work is to describe the evolution of the age at diagnosis of Turner syndrome over time. We also performed a phenotypic and genotypic description and we assessed evolution over time.Method: It is a monocentric descriptive observat...

Benign Breast Conditions in Adolescent Girls

Touraine Philippe

Benign breast diseases (BBD) have always been neglected in comparison to cancer, despite the fact that there are many more patients with such diseases than patients presenting to a breast clinic for cancer, especially in young women. So far, BBD have been the subject of a relatively few isolated and unconnected studies, and earlier related work has often been ignored. This situation has led to a great deal of confusion, especially because different authors have their own nomen...

The role of genetic analysis in primary ovarian failure

Touraine Philippe ,

Primary (premature) ovarian insufficiency (POI) is defined as a loss of ovarian activity before the age of 40, and is characterized by menstrual disturbances (amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea) with elevated gonadotropins (follicle-stimulating hormone [FSH] ≥ 25 IU/L) and low serum estradiol levels. The incidence of POI is around 1 per 100 women overall, and 1 per 1000 women under the age of 30 years. POI leads to infertility and an increased risk of osteoporosis and cardiova...

Partial CRISPR/Cas9 IL1R1 & IFNGR1 Knock-Down Improves β-cell Survival And Function Under Cytokine-Induced Inflammation

Daems Caroline , Vanderroost Juliette , Sokal Etienne , Lysy Philippe

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a chronic disease characterized by the autoimmune destruction of pancreatic β cells. This destruction is mediated by lymphocytes T helper and cytotoxic, and by the action of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL1β, IFNγ and TNFa inside the islets of Langerhans. We propose a new approach to alleviate islet inflammation by targeting pro-inflammatory cytokine receptors. Our hypothesis is that the downregulation of inflammatory pathways ma...

A Low-Carbohydrate Diet Improves Metabolic Control in a Type 1 Diabetic Child Without Side Effects

Klee Philippe , Stasinaki Aikaterini , Gozzi Tiziana , Schwitzgebel Valérie

Background and Aims: Despite intensive insulin treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1DM), metabolic control remains suboptimal, especially in children. In an attempt to optimize postprandial glycaemia, some families decrease the amount of carbohydrates contained in a meal. While "low-carbohydrate diets" may improve metabolic control in some selected populations, controversies remain around the risk of hypoglycemia and ketoacidosis and the impact of such diet...

Personalized and Predictive Medicine for Pediatric Diabetes Through a Genetic Test Using Next Generation Sequencing

Schwitzgebel Valerie , Klee Philippe , Dirlewanger Mirjam , Blouin Jean-Louis

Introduction: Monogenic diabetes (MD) accounts for at least 3% of all pediatric diabetes cases. MD is often misdiagnosed as type 1 or type 2 diabetes, because of its wide phenotypic spectrum. While clinical and biochemical parameters can suggest MD, a definitive diagnosis requires genetic analysis. We conducted a broad study to diagnose MD cases. Then, with the gained knowledge, we designed a new diagnostic to...

Comparing the Cumulative Dose of Growth Hormone Therapy Using Body Weight-Based Dosing Versus Body Surface Area-Based Dosing in Children with Turner Syndrome – Data from the ANSWER Study

Backeljauw Philippe , Geffner Mitchell , Ross Judith , Holot Natalia , Ostrow Vlady

Background and Objective: The American Norditropin Studies: Web-Enabled Research (ANSWER) Program is a long-term, US-based, non-interventional study designed to collect information on the effectiveness and safety of Norditropin® growth hormone (GH). From June 2002 to September 2016, 20,204 pediatric patients were enrolled by their treating physicians, including 1,003 patients with Turner syndrome (TS). This analysis compares cumulative GH doses when adjusting G...

Acute Lysis of a Giant Pediatric Adrenal Cortical Carcinoma Following One Dose of op’DDD

Motte Emmanuelle , Rothenbuhler Anya , Durand Philippe , Bougneres Pierre

Background: op’DDD can be used in adrenal cortical carcinoma (ACC) i) when surgery is impossible ii) or as an adjunct to surgery when local extension or metastases are present.Objectives and hypotheses: To report the unexpected spectacular effects of op’DDD in an unoperable ACC.Patient and results: A 3-year-old black African girl presented in poor shape with a 2-year history of pubic hair, clitoromegaly, abdominal distens...

Severe Neonatal Cushing Syndrome with Multi-Organ McCune Albright Manifestations

Sophie Lambert Anne , Rothenbuhler Anya , Durand Philippe , Bougneres Pierre

Background: Reports of Cushing syndrome during the first month of life are rare. Mortality is high, despite medical (metyrapone) or surgical (adrenalectomy) treatment.Objectives: To report a new neonatal case of Cushing due to McCuneAlbright syndrome (MAS).Patient and results: Although a healthy baby at age 10 days, a newborn girl presented with sudden manifestations within the following 2 weeks: facial and truncal plethora, severe...

Continuous Subcutaneous Infusion of Recombinant LH and FSH During Early Infancy Promotes Testicular Descent in Congenital Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism

Lambert Anne Sophie , Lucchini Philippe , Bouvattier Claire , Bougneres Pierre

Context: Cryptorchidism, a common consequence of HH, is treated with orchiopexy. We previously observed that continuous subcutaneous infusion of gonadotropins restored normal serum testosterone and inhibin B concentrations in two infants with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) and was associated with testicular descent in one.Objective: Test if subcutaneous gonadotropin infusion within the first year of life can allow testicular descent in eight boys wit...
