Paraphilic Compulsion Secondary to Dopamine Replacement Therapy and Successful Treatment with GnRH Analogues

Brewka Anna , Owen Tamsin , Lin Jean-Pierre , Ajzensztejn Michal

Background: Hypersexualized behaviour in the paediatric population is a rare phenomenon. The aetiology of paraphilia is not completely understood, but some studies suggest imbalance of the dopamine serotonin system. Paraphilia has also been described as a side-effect of treatment with monoaminooxidase inhibitors (MAOI) and dopamine agonists. Most of the currently used pharmacologic treatments of the paraphilias have serotonin and testosterone/dihydrotestosterone as their targe...

FGFR3 gene mutation causes hypochondroplasia via autophagy inhibition

Che Lin , Wu Jinxia , Xu Ren , Chen Jing

Background: Fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) is a negative regulator of skeletal development. Gain-of-function point mutations in FGFR3 are responsible for hypochondroplasia (HCH), one of the most common forms of dwarfism in humans. Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved catabolic process, which is indispensable for cell homeostasis maintenance and stress responses. Dysregulation at the level of autophagic activity consequently disturbs the chondr...

Relationship between environmental effects and metabolic characteristics of partial and central precocious puberty in girls: Understanding pathogenesis and identifying specific biomarkers

Chen Jing , Wu Jinxia , Huang Rong , Zhu Hongwei , Che Lin , Lin Yanyan , Chang Yajie , Shen Guiping , Feng Jianghua

Background: The differential diagnosis of partial precocious puberty (PPP) and central precocious puberty (CPP) is vital to the prompt intervention and administration, but their specific biomarkers are still unavailable. The potential harmful effects of environmental factors on children's growth and development attract great concern and require urgent investigation.Objective: The metabolic differences and connection...

Circulating Exosomal miRNAs in Children's Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis and the Correlation with Serum Transaminase and Uric Acid

Zhou Xuelian , Huang Ke , Ni Yan , Yuan Jinna , Liang Xinyi , Lin Hu , Dong Guanping , Fu Junfen

Background: The incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in children increased rapidly paralleled with the global burden of obesity and diabetes. Although most patients are nonalcoholic fatty liver (NAFL), once progress to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), the risk of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis increase significantly. However, the pathogenesis of NAFLD, especially how NAFL progress to NASH is still unclear. Exosomal miRNAs have attracted att...

Two Chinese Children with FBN1-Related Acromelic Dysplasia

Hou Lele , Lin Shaofen , Zhang Lina , Liu Zulin , Ou Hui , Meng Zhe , Liang Liyang

Background and Aims: Geleophysic dysplasia (GD) and acromicric dysplasia (AD) are rare skeletal dysplasia belonging to the group of acromelic dysplasia and are both characterized by severe short stature, short hands and feet, stiff joints, facial anomalies and some radiological manifestations, including delayed bone age, shortened long tubular bones and ovoid vertebral bodies. Patients with GD clinically present the characteristic "happy" facial featur...

Objective: To understand the clinical characteristics, etiological distribution and related metabolic problems of children with premature pubarche.Methods: The clinical data of 55 cases of premature pubarche were summarized. All the children were tested by ACTH stimulation test and GnRHa stimulation test, of which 17 cases were detected by CYP21A2 gene,and 16 cases of Premature Adrenarche (PA) and 14 cases of Isolated Pr...

Analysis of Phenotypes and Genotypes in 84 Patients with 21-hydroxylase Deficiency

Hou Lele , Lin Shaofen , Meng Zhe , Ou Hui , Liu Zulin , Zhang Lina , Jiang Zhuannan , Liang Liyang

Background and Aims: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of autosomal recessive disorders characterized by impaired cortisol synthesis. 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21-OHD) caused by mutations in CYP21A2 gene is the most common form of CAH. This study aims to analyze the phenotype-genotype correlation and the characteristics of gene mutation frequency of 21-OHD patients in China, helping to provide evidence for clinical practice and genetic counseling of 21-OHD patie...
