PAX8 is important for embryogenesis of the thyroid, Müllerian system, and upper urinary/renal tract, and expression of PAX8 has been described in carcinomas from each of these sites. The sensitivity and specificity of the polyclonal PAX8 antibody in a large cohort of epithelial tumors as well as lymphomas have been previously determined, the latter because polyclonal PAX8 is known to be immunoreactive in nonneoplastic B-cell lymphocytes which are often used as the positive internal control for immunohistochemistry...

Endosalpingiosis of the urinary bladder is a rare benign condition characterised by the presence of ectopic endosalpingeal tissue in the bladder. If histology shows two or more Müllerian-derived components, this condition is referred to as Müllerianosis.To our knowledge less than 20 cases of Müllerianosis and 5 cases of endosalpingiosis have been documented in the literature.Although the pathogenesis remains unclear, two theories exist. The implantation theory assumes that Müllerian-derived tissue gets implanted in the wall of the urinary bladder during pelvic surgery...

Short gamete co-incubation (SGCO) consists in decreasing the duration of contact between oocytes and sperm from the standard overnight insemination (SOI) toward 2 hours. However, the effectiveness of this technique to improve in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) outcomes remains controversial. Our study was designed to evaluate the efficiency of SGCO in a poor prognosis population with a history of fragmented embryos defined by the presence of at least 50% of the embryos with more than 25% of cytoplasmic fragments...

BACKGROUND: The expression of the 5,10-methylentetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene in human oocytes and preimplantation embryos suggests that the MTHFR gene is involved in folliculogenesis and female reproduction. Considering the importance of the MTHFR gene on female reproduction, the aim of this study was to evalu- ate the influence of MTHFR C677T polymorphism on ovarian marker reserve, particularly serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels, and ovarian response as well as clinical pregnancy rates after in vitro fertilization (IVF)/ intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)...

Follicle-stimulating hormone receptors (FSHRs) are almost exclusively expressed on granulosa cells, and FSH action is probably most clearly reflected in intrafollicular hormone milieu of antral follicles. Little is known about the possible effects of the common single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) FSHR -29G > A (rs1394205) on hormonal conditions in humsan small antral follicles (hSAFs) obtained from women in the natural menstrual cycle. This study investigated the follicle fluid (FF) concentrations of anti-Müllerian hormone, estradiol, progesterone, androstenedione, and testosterone in hSAF in relation to the different genotypes of FSHR -29G > A...

Recently, growing interest in vitamin D has emerged from findings that demonstrate a low vitamin D status in populations. Similarly, much interest has been shown in the role that anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) plays in reproductive physiology. Considerable confusion as to whether vitamin D status is related to ovarian function can be found in the literature. Our retrospective study was performed from June 2014 to April 2015. Oocyte donors were recruited and stimulated under the antagonist protocol with gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist to trigger ovulation...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder affecting young women. Even though the definition of PCOS has changed over the years, all diagnostic criteria include two or more of the following: oligomenorrhea/oligoovulation/anovulation, androgen excess and polycystic ovaries (PCO). Traditional method of assessing the ovarian morphology has been transvaginal pelvic ultrasound. Recent studies support that serum anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) levels correlate with the number of ovarian follicles and cysts...

The relationship between serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels, body mass index (BMI) and related metabolic factors were investigated in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). A total of 691 women aged between 18 and 35 years, referred to the Department of Gynaecological Endocrinology at the University Hospital of Lille between 2009 and 2014 were included: 137 controls and 554 women with PCOS. Mean serum AMH levels were slightly but significantly lower in women with PCOS who were overweight or obese (BMI ≥25) compared with women of normal weight (BMI <25) (P < 0...

Sclerosing cholangitis and cholestatic jaundice secondary to metastatic disease is a rare complication. We report a rare case of secondary sclerosing cholangitis (SSC) due to lymphatic spread from ovarian cancer with complete resolution after chemotherapy. The diagnosis of SSC from metastatic ovarian cancer was clinically challenging, as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography revealed irregular hepatic ducts consistent with sclerosing cholangitis, but it did not identify any malignant cells. The final diagnosis was made with liver biopsy revealing high-grade metastatic Mullerian carcinoma...

46,XX disorders of sexual development (DSDs) occur rarely and result from disruptions of the genetic pathways underlying gonadal development and differentiation. We present a case of a young phenotypic male with 46,XX SRY-negative ovotesticular DSD resulting from a duplication upstream of SOX9 presenting with a painful testicular mass resulting from ovulation into an ovotestis. We present a literature review of ovulation in phenotypic men and discuss the role of SRY and SOX9 in testicular development, including the role of SOX9 upstream enhancer region duplication in female-to-male sex reversal...

Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH), secreted by immature testicular Sertoli-cells, triggers the regression of male fetal Mullerian ducts. During puberty, AMH is downregulated by intratesticular testosterone. In females, AMH is secreted from granulosa cells of immature ovarian follicles from late prenatal life until menopause; serum concentration is 5-20 times lower in females than in males through lifetime. In boys, AMH determination is useful in the clinical setting as a marker of Sertoli cell function. Serum AMH is low in infants with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism (and increases with FSH treatment), in patients with primary hypogonadism from early postnatal life and in Klinefelter syndrome from midpuberty...

A master sex-determining gene, the Y chromosome-linked anti-Müllerian hormone (amhy), has been described in two New World atheriniform species but little is known on the distribution, evolution, and function(s) of this gene in other Atheriniformes. Interestingly, amhy has been found to coexist with temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD), providing a unique opportunity to explore the interplay between genotypic and environmental sex determination. In this study, the search for an amhy homologue was extended to an Old World atheriniform, the cobaltcap silverside Hypoatherina tsurugae (Atherinidae)...

Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is widely used in human medicine to non-invasively estimate the size of the ovarian follicle reserve and to predict the ovarian response to gonadotropin stimulation in the context of assisted reproductive technologies (e.g., IVF). These applications of AMH testing have recently expanded to non-human mammals, with production animals, such as cows, goats and sheep being the primary focus of AMH research. However, few investigations have involved exotic species, and in particular carnivores...

BACKGROUND Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome (SGBS) is a rare X-linked recessive syndrome characterized by fetal overgrowth. CASE REPORT We present a case of a male infant with SGBS. Abnormal prenatal ultrasound (including congenital diaphragmatic hernia) prompted microarray testing of amniotic fluid cells, which showed deletion on chromosome Xq26.2 affecting the glypican-3 gene consistent with SGBS type I. The infant died six hours after birth and at autopsy showed features of SGBS, including macrosomia, organomegaly, diaphragmatic hernia with consequent pulmonary hypoplasia, cleft palate, large tongue with a midline groove, a supernumerary nipple, Meckel's diverticulum, and abnormal phalanges...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), also called Müllerian inhibiting substance (MIS), is glycoprotein hormone secreted by the fetal Sertoli cells to regulate regression of the Müllerian ducts, the anlagen of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and upper vagina. After its existence was predicted in 1946 and its isolation and purification in the 1970's, a huge amount of information has been gathered on its molecular biology and function in the last 30-40years. Once thought to be a locally acting factor in the male fetus during sexual differentiation, it is now recognized as an endocrine hormone present in both sexes and with functions throughout life...
