Hyperandrogenism Doesn’t Increase the Insulin Resistance in Overweight and Obese Adolescent Girls with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Smetanina Natalija , Seibokaite Audrone , Valickas Raimondas , Verkauskiene Rasa

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with metabolic abnormalities and increased insulin resistance (IR), which is closely associated with abdominal obesity and hyperandrogenism in adults. Some studies indicate that hyperandrogenism influences insulin resistance development in PCOS patients. Data on PCOS association with risks of metabolic disorders in adolescence are scars.Objectives: In this study we aimed to investigate androgen p...

Ilyina Elena , Papusha Ludmila , Smetanina Natalya , Gvozdev Alexey

Background: Diamond–Blackfan anemia (DBA) is an inherited bone marrow failure syndrome, which presents with anemia in early infancy. Survival depends on blood transfusions, which in consequence lead to iron overload (IOL). The most common complications of IOL are hepatic cirrhosis, endocrinopathies and cardiomyopathy.Results: We present the case of 17 years old girl with DBA and IOL-associated endocrinopathies. Her treatment consists of multiple blo...

Sukarova-Angelovska Elena , Kocova Mirjana , Angelkova Natalija , Joseva Jasminka

Background: Hypothalamic hamartomas (HH) are rare non-progressive brain tumor malformations that occur early during brain development. Most of the cases are sporadic and nonsyndromic. Variation in size and location of the hamartoma within the hypothalamic region is not always associated with the severity of the clinical presentation. A wide range of symptoms could occur - from nonsymptomatic to severely affected cases that include seizures (mostly gelastic), behavioral difficu...

Background: Obesity is a complex disease that have an impact of many organs and systems. Syndromic obesity, although rare separately, encompasses around 70 entities with different phenotypic expression, gene involvement and associated anomalies. There are many genes that can influence obesity, either monogenic or polygenic in basis. Children with syndromic obesity need additional testing in order to indentify a specific disorder. Metabolic set up and endocrinological disturban...
