Turner syndrome growth hormone

Z A Allybocus, C Wang, Hr Shi, Qh Wu
Ovarian dysgenesis, short stature, and infertility are common features of Turner syndrome (TS). Endocrinopathies and cardiopathies are less common, but may induce significant complications, and are the leading cause of mortality in TS patients. Endocrine abnormality including osteoporosis occurs in up to 60% of patients, hypothyroidism at an incidence of 3.2%, and impaired glucose metabolism with variable incidence depending on the age group. Estrogen therapy and growth hormone therapy, alone or combined, improve height and bone mass in TS patients...

BACKGROUND: Among patients with Turner Syndrome (TS), premature ovarian failure is a main feature. Recently published consensus guidelines recommend that transdermal (TD) estradiol is the preferred route for estrogen replacement. Studies related to ultrasound (US) measurements during estrogen replacement in TS patients using estradiol (17β E2) and correlating uterine growth with estrogen metabolites are limited. OBJECTIVES: To compare uterine morphology and hormonal changes depending on route of administration of 17β E2 (oral vs...

BACKGROUND: Women with Turner syndrome (TS) are at increased risk of aortic dissection, which is related to ascending aortic diameter. However, the relation between aortic diameter and outcome is not well determined. This study evaluates the prevalence of aortic dilatation, the growth rate of the aorta and the risk of aortic complications in adults with TS. METHODS: Single centre, retrospective study of all women with TS followed with a strict protocol in an outpatient TS clinic...

Background: Growth monitoring of apparently healthy children aims at early detection of serious conditions by use of both clinical expertise and algorithms that define abnormal growth. The seven existing algorithms provide contradictory definitions of growth abnormality and have a low level of validation. Objective: An external validation study with head-to-head comparison of the seven algorithms combined with study of the impact of use of the World Health Organization (WHO) versus national growth charts on algorithm performance...

Most girls with Turner syndrome (TS) suffer from incomplete sexual development, premature ovarian failure, and infertility due to abnormal ovarian folliculogenesis. Serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels reflect the ovarian reserve in females, even in childhood. Thus, we aimed to assess serum AMH levels in girls with TS and its relation to karyotype, spontaneous puberty, and growth hormone (GH) therapy. Fifty TS were compared to 50 age- and sex-matched controls. All subjects were subjected to history, anthropometric assessment, Tanner pubertal staging and measurement of serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estradiol (E2), and AMH...

Constitutional delay of growth and puberty (CDGP) is the most common cause of delayed puberty (DP), is mainly found in males, and is characterized by short stature and delayed skeletal maturation. A family history of the subject comprising the timing of puberty in the parents and physical examination may provide clues regarding the cause of DP. Delayed onset of puberty is rarely considered a disease in either sex. In fact, DP usually represents a common normal variant in pubertal timing, with favorable outcomes for final height and future reproductive capacity...

Objective: The risk of autoimmune diseases (AD) in patients with Turner Syndrome (TS) is twice higher than in the general female population and four times higher than in the male population. The causes of the increased incidence of AD in TS are still under discussion. We hypothesized the presence of a specific humoral, cellular, and regulatory T cell (Treg) immunity profile which predisposes to AD, disorders of immunity, and disorders of immune regulation. Methods: The study encompassed 37 girls with TS and with no signs of infection...

We report a detailed phenotypic, cytogenetic, and molecular characterization of a patient diagnosed prenatally with Turner syndrome (TS). In addition to having typical TS clinical characteristics such as a webbed neck, high arched palate, and coarctation of the aorta, the patient had features less frequently seen in TS, including recurrent parathyroid adenomas, growth along the 75th-90th centiles on the TS height curve despite a minimal treatment with growth hormone, behavioral problems, and evidence of gonadal dysgenesis with testicular-like structures, such as seminiferous tubules lined by Sertoli cells and a contiguous nodule of Leydig cells...

Objective: A comprehensive survey was conducted to evaluate the shortcomings of clinical care in patients with Turner syndrome (TS) in Turkey. Methods: A structured questionnaire prepared by the Turner study group in Turkey, which covered relevant aspects of patient care in TS was sent to 44 pediatric endocrinology centers. Results: Eighteen centers (41%) responded to the questionnaire. In the majority of the centers, diagnostic genetic testing, screening for Y chromosomal material, protocols regarding the timing and posology of growth hormone (GH) and estrogen, thrombophilia screening, fertility information and screening for glucose intolerance, thyroid, and coeliac diseases in patients with TS were in line with the current consensus...

Background: Constitutional ring chromosomes are rare orphan chromosomal disorders. Ring chromosome syndrome featuring growth retardation and mild to intermediate intellectual disability is likely caused by the dynamic behavior of ring chromosome through cell cycles. Chromosomal and regional specific phenotypes likely result from segmental losses and gains during the ring formation. Although recent applications of genomic copy number and sequencing analyses revealed various ring chromosome structures from an increasing number of case studies, there was no organized effort for compilating and curating cytogenomic and clinical finding for ring chromosomes...

Context: Most girls with Turner syndrome (TS) have hypergonadotropic hypogonadism and need hormonal replacement for induction of puberty and then for maintaining secondary sex characteristics, attaining peak bone mass, and uterine growth. The optimal estrogen replacement regimen is still being studied. Evidence Acquisition: We conducted a systematic search of PubMed for studies related to TS and puberty. Evidence Synthesis: The goals of replacement are to mimic normal timing and progression of physical and social development while minimizing risks...
