STUDY QUESTION: What diagnoses underlie delayed puberty (DP) and predict its outcome? SUMMARY ANSWER: A multitude of different diagnoses underlie DP, and in boys a history of cryptorchidism, small testicular size and slow growth velocity (GV) predict its clinical course. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: DP is caused by a variety of underlying etiologies. Hormonal markers can be used in the differential diagnosis of DP but none of them have shown complete diagnostic accuracy...

BACKGROUND: Appearance of glandular breast tissue may be difficult to distinguish from fat tissue by palpation, especially in obese girls. To our knowledge, validation of the clinical assessment of pubertal breast stages by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has never been performed. Our objective was to report normative data of glandular breast tissue volume and validate the clinical evaluation of pubertal breast staging by MRI of breast tissue and to evaluate circulating reproductive hormone levels and estrogen-dependent transabdominal ultrasound (TAUS) parameters as markers of glandular breast tissue...

OBJECTIVE: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine problem in adolescents with an increasing prevalence of 30%. Pursuing new biomarkers with high specificity and sensitivity in the diagnosis of PCOS in adolescents is currently an active area of research. We aimed to investigate the diagnostic value of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), insulin-like peptide-3 (INSL3), inhibin-A (INH-A), and inhibin-B (INH-B) in adolescents with PCOS and also to determine the association, if any, between these hormones and clinical/laboratory findings related with hyperandrogenism...

OBJECTIVE: Makorin ring finger protein 3 (MKRN3) gene restrains the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. In girls, peripheral levels of MKRN3 decline prior to the onset of puberty. We described longitudinal changes in serum MKRN3 levels in boys before and during puberty and assessed the effect of inhibition of estrogen biosynthesis on MKRN3 levels. DESIGN: Longitudinal serum samples from a double-blind, randomized controlled study in 30 boys (age range: 9.1-14.2years) with idiopathic short stature who received placebo (Pl; n=14) or aromatase inhibitor letrozole (Lz; 2...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the accuracy of inhibin B and the gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist test for the diagnosis of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH). STUDY DESIGN: We performed a retrospective analysis of data collected 2009-2014 using a strict clinical protocol. All prepubertal nonunderweight girls, aged 13-17.5 years with Tanner breast stage B1/B2 and low estradiol levels, were tested and re-examined at 6-month intervals (n = 21). Constitutional delay of growth and puberty was defined by spontaneous menarche; HH was identified by association with specific causes of HH or no spontaneous progress of puberty during follow-up...

CONTEXT: The majority of Turner syndrome (TS) patients suffer from accelerated loss of primordial follicles. Low circulating levels of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) may predict the lack of spontaneous puberty in prepubertal girls and imminent premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) in TS women with preserved ovarian function. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the association between circulating AMH and ovarian status in TS patients. DESIGN: Longitudinal observational cohort study...

Prenatal sex hormones can induce abnormalities in the reproductive system and adversely impact on genital development. We investigated whether sex hormones in cord blood influenced the ratio of the second to fourth digit lengths (2D/4D) in school-aged children. Of the 514 children who participated in a prospective cohort study on birth in Sapporo between 2002 and 2005, the following sex hormone levels were measured in 294 stored cord blood samples (135 boys and 159 girls); testosterone (T), estradiol (E), progesterone, LH, FSH, inhibin B, and insulin-like factor 3 (INSL3)...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Evidence is unclear whether prenatal smoking affects age at menarche and pubertal development, and its impact upon hormones has not been well studied. We aim to identify potential pathways through which prenatal smoking and environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) affect reproductive hormones in girls approaching puberty. METHODS: We examined the association between prenatal smoking, current ETS and luteinizing hormone (LH) and inhibin B (InB) in 6- to 11-year-old girls in the 3rd National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994...

BACKGROUND: Aromatase deficiency may result in a complete block of estrogen synthesis because of the failure to convert androgens to estrogens. In females, this results in virilisation at birth, ovarian cysts in prepuberty and lack of pubertal development but virilisation, thereafter. OBJECTIVE AND METHODS: We studied the impact of oral 17β-estradiol treatment on ovarian and uterine development, and on LH/FSH and inhibin B during the long-term follow-up of a girl harboring compound heterozygote point mutations in the CYP19A1 gene...

CONTEXT: In adult women, Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is produced by small growing follicles, and circulating levels of AMH reflect the number of antral follicles as well as primordial follicles. Whether AMH reflects follicle numbers in healthy girls remains to be elucidated. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate whether serum levels of AMH reflects ovarian morphology in healthy girls. DESIGN AND SETTING: This was a population-based cohort study involving the general community...

OBJECTIVE: Primary gonadal failure may occur in most individuals with Turner syndrome (TS). Since ovaries in TS girls undergo premature apoptosis and cryopreservation of ovarian tissue is now feasible, it would be useful to identify a reliable marker of ovarian reserve in these patients. We planned to evaluate ovarian function in a group of TS patients by measuring both traditional markers and inhibin B and to compare these results with those of a control group. STUDY DESIGN: We enrolled 23 patients with TS and 17 age-matched healthy girls...

BACKGROUND: Hormonal indicators could be useful for detecting early pubertal onset, but there is little research on how they are related to puberty in U.S. girls. We determined median age at hormonal onset of puberty based on luteinizing hormone (LH) and inhibin B (InB) and explored the extent to which body composition moderates this timing process. METHODS: We analyzed anthropometric and hormone data of 698 US peri-pubertal girls ages 6-11.99 y who had participated in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III), 1988-1994...
