Evaluation of Puberty in Patients with Noonan Syndrome and Mutations in the RAS/MAPK Genes

Malaquias Alexsandra C. , Noronha Renata M , Homma Thais K , Albuquerque Edoarda V A , Bertola Debora R , Jorge Alexander A L

Background: Noonan syndrome (NS) is a rare genetic disease characterized by facial dysmorphism, short stature, heart defects, chest deformities, and variable developmental delay/learning disabilities. Almost 80% of patients have a mutation in the genes encoding components of the RAS/MAPK pathway. Puberty was described as delayed in NS patients, but few studies are focusing on this subject and genotype-phenotype correlations so far.<s...

Characterization of puberty development in a large cohort of patients with Noonan syndrome with molecular diagnosis

Rezende Raissa , Jorge Alexander , Noronha Renata , Keselman Ana , Andrade Nathalia , Dantas Naiara , Bertola Debora , Malaquias Alexsandra ,

Introduction: Noonan syndrome (NS) is a relative frequent genetic disorder, mainly characterized by dysmorphic face features, congenital heart defects and short stature. Though delayed pubertal development has been described in both sexes, the physiopathological root remains unclear. This study aims at characterizing puberty development in Noonan syndrome.Materials and Methods: The study population included 111 individuals with a molecul...

The Metabolic Profile Associated with RASopathies

Noronha Renata , Homma Thais , Moraes Michelle , Albuquerque Edoarda , Funari Mariana , Pereira Alexandre , Villares Sandra , Bertola Debora , Jorge Alexander , Malaquias Alexsandra

Background: Noonan syndrome (NS) is a frequent autosomal dominant disorder characterized by facial dysmorphisms, heart defects, short stature and learning disabilities. It is caused by mutations in genes within the RAS/MAPK signaling pathway, thus called RASopathies. The RAS/MAPK pathway can also impact the signal transduction of hormones involved in body weight, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism features scarcely studied only in animal models. This study aimed to describe me...

46XX Male Syndrome

Markosyan Renata

Background: The XX male syndrome – Testicular Disorder of Sexual Differentiation (DSD) is a rare condition characterized by a spectrum of clinical presentations, ranging from ambiguous to normal male genitalia. The project ‘Genetics of Human Disorders of Sexual Development’ is funded by Swiss National Science Foundation and fulfilled by the University of Geneva Medical School, the Medical Centers from Armenia, Poland and Ukraine. The goal is to identify mutation...

Background: Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) is genetically mediated in up to 30% of cases. Many genes associated with POI have roles in early ovary developmental processes, including meiosis.Objectives: We investigated the genetic mechanism underlying early-onset POI in three young women presenting with absent puberty: two sisters from a consanguineous pedigree and a third unrelated proband.<st...

Persistent Müllerian duct syndrome presenting with bilateral cryptorchidism and obstructed inguinal hernia

Vlachopapadopoulou Elpis-Athina , Fotiadou Anatoli , Picard Jean-Yves , Achilleos Orthodoxos , Lamprinou Zoe , Tzortzopoulou Adelais , Passalidis Alexandros , Michalacos Stephanos

Background: Persistent Müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is a Disorder of Sex Development (DSD) caused by mutations in genes encoding anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) or its type II receptor (AMHR2) with autosomal recessive transmission. Objective: To report a case of transverse testicular ectopia (TTE), associated with PMDS, initially presented as an obstructed inguinal hernia.Case presentation: An 18- days- old male infant, wi...

Diagnostic precision of the Tri-Ponderal Mass Index (kg/m3) to identify the metabolic risk phenotype in obese children and adolescents.

Arciniegas Larry , Tomasini Rosangela , Vega Elizabeth , Fabregas Ana , Clemente Maria , Yeste Diego ,

Introduction: The metabolically healthy obese phenotype (MHOF) defines obese patients who have preserved insulin sensitivity and who do not have metabolic complications: lower risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes in adulthood. Recent studies indicate that TMI (kg/m3) estimates the percentage of body fat more accurately than the BMI and it has been proposed to substitute the use of the BMI z-score values by those of the TMI. TMI values ...

Study of Genetics of Human Disorders of Sexual Development. Research Project.

Markosyan Renata

Disorders of sex development (DSD) are a group of congenital developmental disorders in which the chromosomal, gonadal, or anatomical sex is atypical. The clinical diagnosis and management of DSD are difficult and complex because of the various aetiology and diverse manifestation. The project ‘Genetics of Human Disorders of Sexual Development’ is funded by Swiss National Science Foundation and fulfilled by the University of Geneva Medical School (Switzerland), the Me...

GH Treatment for Idiopathic Short Stature

Markosyan Renata

Background: The purpose of this study was to analyse characteristics and evaluate the effectiveness and safety of treatment with recombinant GH (rGH) in children with idiopathic short stature (ISS).Method: Patients (n=54) were evaluated prospectively. Treatment was received by 27 patients with ISS during 1 year. The administration was done by the accepted methodology. The effectiveness of treatment was evaluated based on change in growing speed,...

Thyroid Cancer is the Most Frequent Secondary Solid Tumour Following Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation in Childhood – A Single Centre Experience

Snajderova Marta , Keslova Petra , Sedlacek Petr , Formankova Renata , Riha Petr , Stary Jan

Backgroud: Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a potentially curative therapy for a variety of malignant and non-malignant disorders. With improved outcomes, increasing attention has been drawn to late complications in long-term survivors. Secondary cancer belongs to the most serious complications.Objective: Occurrence of secondary solid tumours at HSCT Unit, University Hospital Prague- Motol was analysed....
