Background: Obesity is a worldwide epidemic affecting adults and children. Social changes throughout history have contributed to modifications in nutrition and physical activity levels. These changes in lifestyle affected health, increasing the number of metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. Obese children already have a low grade systemic inflammation as well as markers of increased cardiovascular risk. The endothelial function is an important and early marker of atheroscler...

Dynamics in Blood Pressure After Pubertal Suppression with GnRH Analogs Followed by Testosterone Treatment in Male Adolescents

Perl Liat , Segev-Becker Anat , Israeli Galit , Elkon-Tamir Erella , Weintrob Naomi , Oren Asaf

Background: In 2017, the Endocrine Society published guidelines for the endocrine treatment of gender dysphoria/ gender incongruence. Adolescents who meet diagnostic criteria for gender dysphoria undergo pubertal suppression using gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogs (GnRHa) and induction of puberty with gender-affirming hormonal therapy. Blood pressure (BP) monitoring prior to and during treatment with GnRHa in transgender adolescents is recommended. This r...

Perl Liat , Oren Asaf , C. Mueller Sven , Raphael Ido , Borger Ophir , Sheppes Tamar , Shechner Tomer

Background: Spatial navigation is an essential human skill that helps individuals track their changes in position and orientation by integrating self-motion cues. Meta-analyses indicate that males, on average, perform better than females on a number of spatial tasks. Sex steroids, mainly androgens, modulate the remodeling of synapses in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus, a limbic brain area with critical influence on spatial and contextual memory. Androgen...

De Novo PPM1D Mutation in a Patient with Growth Hormone Deficiency: A Case Report

Yuan Yuan , Shufang Liu

Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is a relatively rare cause for short stature resulting from insufficient secretion of growth hormone (GH). With complicated etiology, GHD can coexist in numerous syndromes or disorders such as Turner Syndrome. So, it is necessary to take genetic analysis to patients with GHD especially those perform various phenotypes. A 9.5 years old boy complained of short stature was diagnosed with GHD by height velocity (HV) <5 cm/year, delayed bone age ...

Introduction: Despite existing guidelines there is no unified approach to glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid replacement in congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). Consequently, treatment varies in adults and children as well as across countries.Objective: We used data from the I-CAH Registry to identify geographical and temporal variations in the treatment with glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids of children and adul...

The Association of Moebius Syndrome and Kallman Syndrome is Due to a Specific Mutation of TUBB3

Amouyal Melanie , Bouvagnet Patrice , Rochette Galliane , de Roux Nicolas

Background: Between the 6000 monogenic disorders, only few are due to a single mutation. Recently, a specific mutation has been described in TUBB3, encoding tubulin beta 3, in the association of Moebius syndrome (MS) and Kallmann syndrome (KS). MS is a congenital paralysis of eye and face’s muscles and can be caused by mutations of TUBB3. KS combines hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia.Objective and hypotheses: The combination of these two syn...

Questioning the Value of Brain MRIs in the Evaluation of Children with Isolated Growth Hormone Deficiency

Oren Asaf , Singer Dana , Rachmiel Mariana , Hamiel Uri , Shiran Shelly , Ben-Sira Liat , Schachter-Davidov Anita , Eyal Ori

Background: Isolated growth hormone deficiency (IGHD) is a relatively common disorder. Current diagnostic protocols require a brain MRI of the hypothalamus and the hypophysis after establishment of the diagnosis, with the aim of identifying structural defects and specifically rule out an underlying space-occupying lesion. An MRI scan is costly and requires general anesthesia in young children. Data on the contribution of brain MRI in diagnosing children with I...
