Background: SHOX deficiency is a frequent cause of short stature. GH therapy has been approved for growth promotion in individuals with SHOX mutations by FDA and EMEA.Case report: Three patients with Leri-Weill syndrome (LWS) started GH therapy at different chronological ages (CA). Patient 1 started GH+LHRHa at the CA of 13.4 years, height 148.4 cm (−1.5 S.D.), Tanner stage 4, bone age (BA) 13 years. Target height (TH) 160.5 cm (&#87...

Pubertal Development Anticipation

Guidoni Elisa , Franceschini Michela , Mucaria Cristina , Scarinci Renato , Municchi Giovanna

Background: Pubertal timing is influenced by a complex interaction among genetic, nutritional, environmental and socioeconomic factors. Over the past 30 years a trend in pubertal timing anticipation has been demonstrated. Environmental factors involved in this phenomenon are mainly represented by endocrine disruptors compounds (EDCs), such as pesticides, industrial compounds and persistent organic pollutants, estrogens and phytoestrogens.Objective and hy...

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...

The Triglyceride-to-HDL Cholesterol Ratio is Associated with Insulin Resistance in Obese Boys But Not in Obese Girls

Massa Guy , Bervoets Liene , Massa Jonas , Zeevaert Renate

Background: Children and adolescents with obesity often have insulin resistance (IR) and are at increased risk to develop coronary heart disease (CHD) in adulthood. The triglyceride to HDL-cholesterol (TG/HDL-C) ratio reflects small, dense low-density lipoprotein (LDL), an atherogenic lipoprotein particle that strongly predicts CHD.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate the TG/HDL-C ratio in obese children and adolescents and study the relationship with a...

Potential Connection of Dyslipidaemia with BMI and Associated Disorders in Obese Children and Adolescents

Navasardyan Lusine , Markosyan Renata

Background: It is used to define body weight status in children and adolescents using age- and gender-corrected for BMI-SDS. Also excess body weight (EBW) is increasingly applicable to children and adolescents (BMI 99-th percentile). BMI seems to be informative for the severity of obesity, but not for relevant risks of dyslipidaemia.Objective and hypotheses: To reveal the potential connections between absolute levels of lipids and BMI, as well as several...
