Challenges Experienced in Delivering Growth Hormone Therapy in Children's with Prader Willi Syndrome in Birmingham Children's Hospital.

Kollurage D Udeni Anuruddhika , Barrett Tim , Jayamanne B D W , Krone Ruth

Prader Willi Syndrome (PWS) is a rare neuro-genetic disorder inherited as a result of lack of expression in 15q11-13 gene and 70% are paternally inherited. Characteristic features are dysmorphism, behavioural problems, infantile hypotonia, short stature, hypothalamic dysfunction, hyperphagia and morbid obesity. The long-term morbidity and mortality depend on hypothalamic dysfunction and obesity. While multidisciplinary care is essential, growth hormone (GH) is a recognized...

Background: Androgen excess in childhood is a common clinical presentation and might signify serious pathology. We have recently explored patterns and severity of androgen excess in a large female adult cohort to differentiate common polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) from non-PCOS pathology, including congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), ovarian hyperthecosis and adrenal and ovarian tumours (Elhassan et al., JCE&M 2018). Herein, we undertake a similar approach f...

Re-appraising the use of urinary steroid profiles for assessing therapy control in children with 21-hydroxylase deficiency – results from the CAH-UK cohort study

Introduction: Patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21OHD) have specific plasma and urinary steroid patterns, with 11-oxygenatedC19 steroids established as key adrenal-specific androgens. Monitoring glucocorticoid (GC) replacement remains a challenge in the absence of reliable biomarkers.Aim: To reassess the urinary steroid profile of children with CAH in relation to plasma ...

Background: Primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) is most commonly congenital in children. PAI is genetically heterogeneous with some gene defects causing syndromic disease. A third of patients have no genetic diagnosis meaning their prognosis is uncertain. We recently investigated families with a novel combination of PAI and steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome.Objective and hypotheses: To discover the genetic defect underlying this syndrome.<p class=...

Development of Novel Non-Invasive Strategies for Monitoring of Treatment Control in Patients with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

Introduction: Glucocorticoid treatment remains a challenging aspect in the management of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). Current strategies for monitoring treatment are suboptimal and rely largely on frequent blood tests, which are traumatising in children and young persons (CYP). Recent evidence indicates a crucial role of 11-oxygenatedC19 androgens in the pathogenesis of CAH.Aim: To explore the use of 11-oxygenat...

Introduction: Classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) caused by 21-hydroxylase deficiency results in impaired synthesis of gluco- and often also of mineralocorticoids. Early treatment with glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids prevents life-threatening crises. In some centres, additional salt is prescribed in the first year. However, until now the use of salt is controversial and not proved to result in better outcome in studies.<s...

Introduction: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is the most common genetic condition in the spectrum of differences of sex development (DSD). Surgery in DSD is a controversial topic and there is no consensus if to perform surgery, how to perform surgery, and when to perform surgery. The current study was designed to evaluate the current practice in CAH related surgical practice in girls.Patients and Methods: All cases...

Introduction: Despite existing guidelines there is no unified approach to glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid replacement in congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). Consequently, treatment varies in adults and children as well as across countries.Objective: We used data from the I-CAH Registry to identify geographical and temporal variations in the treatment with glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids of children and adul...
