Background: Bilateral testicular regression (BTR) is characterized by the absence of both testicles in a newborn male or shortly thereafter, and presenting as bilateral cryptorchidism with undetectable AMH levels and the absence of Müllerian structures on pelvic ultrasound. Depending on when the regression occurs during fetal development, the condition can be associated with a micropenis. Few studies have explored the etiology and long-term outcome of BTR...

Background and Aim: Recombinant growth hormone (GH) is reimbursed for the treatment of short stature (<-2.5 Z-score) in children born small for gestational age (SGA) without postnatal growth, aged ≥ 4 years with a height Z-score >1 below mid-parental height (MPH). We wanted to determine the current GH prescribing practices by pediatric endocrinologists (PE) for SGA related short stature and document the percentages of treated children at risk for...

Characterization of the Adipose Progenitor Cell Marker MSCA1 in Normal Weight and Obese Children

Hanschkow Martha , Bouloumié Anne , Dietrich Arne , Kiess Wieland , Körner Antje , Landgraf Kathrin

Background: Obesity is characterized by an increase in fat mass caused by an increase in adipocyte number and adipocyte size and is often associated with adipose tissue (AT) dysfunction contributing to metabolic impairment. It is suspected that adipocyte progenitor cells play an important role during healthy and obesity-related AT expansion. Studies in adults showed that the stroma vascular fraction (SVF) of AT is composed of different progenitor cell subpopul...

Quality of Life and Anxiety in Adolescents with Differentiated Thyroid Cancer

Benoit Melissa Anne

Background: Clinical observations of children and adolescents with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) patients led us to investigate quality of life and anxiety. Although adult DTC survivors have similar or slightly worse quality of life (QOL), this has not been evaluated in the pediatric population.Objective and Hypotheses: In this cross-sectional pilot study, our objective was to compare QOL and anxiety in adolescents with DTC to patients with acquire...

CG at the Methylation IGF1 Locus is an Epigenetic Predictor of GH Sensitivity

Ouni Myriam , Castell Anne Laure , Bougneres Pierre

Background: The growth and IGF1 responses to GH treatment show a large variation across children with idiopathic short stature (ISS). Compliance and GH regimens are important determinants. The d3 variant of the GH receptor (GHR) is a significant genetic predictor. The role of individual epigenetics had not been studied. The IGF1 locus is an attractive candidate where CG methylation could influence GH action.Objectives: To study GH effects on a) IGF1 gene...

Meta-analysis of Children with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) Type 2A from 1995-2014: Impact of RET Mutation Screening on Age at Thyroidectomy and Frequency of Metastatic Disease

Burckhardt Marie-Anne , Zumsteg Urs , Szinnai Gabor

Background: Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) in MEN 2A is caused by mutations in RET. Guidelines (2001/2009/2015) recommend prophylactic total thyroidectomy (TT) based on mutation specific risk levels (ATA 2015: high/moderate).Objective: The aim of this study was to analyse changes of age at TT, frequency of metastatic MTC (MMTC), and frequency of TT according to guidelines since introduction of RET testing in 1995....

A Rare Cause of Short Stature: the Floating Harbor Syndrome

Kayemba-Kay's Simon , Maillet Odile , Heron Anne

Background: Short stature has several causes ranging from complex hormonal deficiencies mostly related to pituitary gland genetics, to idiopathic and environmental causes such as maternal smoking in pregnancy, etc. Floating harbor syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by short stature, delayed bone age, mild to moderate mental retardation, retarded speech development, and typical facial dysmorphic features. The syndrome is caused by heterozygous mutations in exon 3...

What Hypoglycemia Does to the Heart: Impact of Nocturnal Hypoglycemia on Cardiac Repolarization in Diabetic Children

Bachmann Sara , Auderset Anne , Zumsteg Urs , Szinnai Gabor , Donner Birgit

Background: Hypoglycemia is the most common and most feared complication of insulin treated diabetes. Though mostly asymptomatic, nocturnal hypoglycemia can be fatal in rare cases: sudden nocturnal death is more frequent in diabetic patients than in others. It is postulated that hypoglycemia related QTc prolongation contributes to cardiac arrhythmia and can lead to dead in bed.Objective: To evaluate influence of nocturna...

CG Methylation at the IGF1 P2 Promoter is a Major Epigenetic Determinant of Postnatal, Not Foetal Growth

Ouni Myriam , Le Stunff Catherine , Castell Anne Laure , Bougneres Pierre

Background: The height of children has a Gaussian distribution. Genetics explain an important part of individual variability, but no single genomic variant accounts for more than 0.3% of height variance. At the interface of genetics and environment, epigenetics is expected to contribute to phenotypic variability. IGF1 is an attractive locus to test this hypothesis.Objectives: To quantify the effect of CG methylation of IGF1 promoters on height.<p cla...

A Novel Mutation of KISS1R Causing a Normosmic Isolated Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism

Yoshii Keisuke , Hugon-Rodin Justine , Gompel Anne , de Roux Nicolas

Background: Loss of function mutations in KISS1R, which encodes kisspeptin receptor have been reported in very few patients with normosmic isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (nIHH).Objective and hypotheses: To describe the phenotype of the nIHH female patient with a novel homozygous KISS1R mutation and to characterize functionally this mutation. The patient was a 28 year-old Senegalese woman with primary amenorrhea. She was the seco...
