Persistent müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is characterized by the presence of müllerian duct derivatives in otherwise phenotypically normal males. It is caused in approximately 85% of the cases by mutations in the AMH gene or its type II receptor (AMHR2). We report on 2 brothers with normal external genitalia but high serum AMH levels. Sequence analysis of the AMHR2 gene in the 2 siblings revealed a novel homozygous missense mutation in exon 10 (p.V458L, c.1372G>T). PMDS is a rare condition, but it has to be considered in differential diagnosis of cryptorchidism with normal male genitalia...

Prior research suggests that several endogenous hormones in premenopausal women are associated with breast cancer risk; however, few studies have evaluated associations of endogenous hormones with mammographic density (MD) in premenopausal women. We conducted a cross-sectional study of plasma hormone levels in relation to MD among 634 cancer-free premenopausal women in the Nurses' Health Study II. We measured percent MD from screening mammograms using a computer-assisted method. We assayed estradiol, estrone, and estrone sulfate in blood samples timed in early follicular and mid-luteal phases of the menstrual cycle as well as testosterone, androstenedione, progesterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), DHEA sulfate, sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), and anti-Müllerian hormone in luteal or untimed samples...

A strong positive association has been observed between circulating anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), a biomarker of ovarian reserve, and breast cancer risk in three prospective studies. Confirming this association is important because of the paucity of biomarkers of breast cancer risk in premenopausal women. We conducted a consortium study including ten prospective cohorts that had collected blood from premenopausal women. A nested case-control design was implemented within each cohort. A total of 2,835 invasive (80%) and in situ (20%) breast cancer cases were individually matched to controls (n = 3,122) on age at blood donation...

OBJECTIVE: Women with type 1 diabetes have increased risk of infertility compared to women without diabetes even after adjustment for irregular menses, but etiologies are incompletely understood. Our aim was to examine the prevalence of abnormalities in ovarian markers consistent with polycystic ovary syndrome in women with type 1 diabetes and associations with irregular menses and diabetes-specific variables. DESIGN, PATIENTS, AND MEASUREMENTS: We conducted a secondary analysis of women in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial/Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications Study (DCCT/EDIC), a randomized trial and observational follow-up of intensive insulin therapy for type 1 diabetes...

RATIONALE: Leiomyomas arising from the anterolateral abdominal wall are uncommon, and their pathogenesis remains unknown. We present the 15th case of such a tumor, having this unique tumor morphology, followed by a detailed discussion on disease pathogenesis. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 48-year-old, asymptomatic perimenopausal, multiparous Japanese woman presented with a left-sided pelvic mass. She had no history of previous surgeries or uterine leiomyomas. Although a transabdominal ultrasonogram raised suspicions of an ovarian tumor, a transvaginal ultrasonogram confirmed normal ovaries...

BACKGROUND: A recent report described a new PCOS-like phenotype in lean older infertile women, and was characterized by high age-specific anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) but hypo- rather than the expected hyper-androgenism. The hypo-androgenism was, furthermore, characterized of, likely, adrenal origin and autoimmune etiology. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We extracted data on 708 consecutive infertility patients, and separated them into three age-strata, <35, 36-42, and >42 years...

PURPOSE: In recent years, anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) has been considered a reliable index of ovarian reserve. There are few data on AMH values in thyroid cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate AMH levels in pre-menopausal women with a history of low-risk thyroid cancer. METHODS: Thirty-four women (aged 40.7 ± 6.7 years) were studied 7.1 ± 0.9 years after surgery and at least one RAI treatment. A group of 23 thyroid cancer women (41.6 ± 7...

Africa has the most tropical and subtropical land of any continent, yet has relatively low species richness in several taxa. This depauperate nature of the African tropical fauna and flora has led some to call Africa the "odd man out." One exception to this pattern is velvet ants (Hymenoptera: Mutillidae), wingless wasps that are known for Müllerian mimicry. While North American velvet ants form one of the world's largest mimicry complexes, mimicry in African species has not been investigated. Here we ask do African velvet ant Müllerian mimicry rings exist, and how do they compare to the North American complex...

AIM: Thyroid dysfunction and autoimmunity are associated with an adverse effect on fertility. An aberrant high thyroid stimulating hormone level is associated with diminished ovarian reserve in women of reproductive age; however, the utility of levothyroxine (LT4) replacement for infertile patients with subclinical hypothyroidism is still under discussion. The aim of this study was to investigate whether LT4 supplementation for infertile patients with subclinical hypothyroidism improves impaired ovarian function...

Endobronchial metastasis occurs in only 2%-5% of non-pulmonary cancers. Here we report on an 84-year-old woman who presented with breathlessness and light-headedness while on holiday in Australia, 2 years post-treatment for endometrial cancer. Initial CT pulmonary angiogram identified a soft tissue mass in the left hemithorax. A chest radiograph performed after repatriation was consistent with a large left pleural effusion, but bedside ultrasound showed a lobulated mass involving the left hemidiaphragm. A pleural procedure in the traditional 'triangle of safety' would have resulted in inadvertent puncture of the underlying mass...

Persistent Müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is a rare type of male pseudohermaphroditism caused by a deficiency in anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) or a defect in its type II receptor. The current study reports the clinical data and results of the genetic analysis of a 17-month-old male diagnosed with PMDS. The clinical manifestations of the patient included a left transverse testicular ectopia and bilateral cryptorchidism. Pelvic ultrasonography indicated two testes on the same left inguinal ring and left inguinal hernia and uterine tissue located at the left rear of the bladder...

There is a proven association between urinary tract infections (UTI) and preterm birth. There is a recognized link between genital and urinary anomalies (1); 30-50% of Mullerian duct anomalies are associated urinary tract defects (2). Given this association, we determined if certain women with uterine anomalies should be monitored more closely for UTI. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

The intense selection of characteristics related to animal performance may affect the reproductive efficiency of beef cows negatively. Selection for fertility along with production traits is, therefore, readily justifiable. The objective of the present study was to evaluate possible relationships among AFC, serum AMH concentrations and external morphometrics with reproductive efficiency in Tabapuã (a Brazilian Bos indicus beef breed) females. Antral follicle counts and external morphometrics were measured in nulliparous (n = 162), primiparous (n = 80) and multiparous (n = 351) cows, from four farms...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if ovarian aging as measured by levels of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is associated with pattern of multiple sclerosis (MS) progression in women. METHODS: Women with MS and healthy controls were included from a longitudinal research cohort with up to 10 years follow-up. Plasma AMH levels were measured by ELISA for baseline and years 3, 5, and 8-10. Mixed effects logistic and linear regression models were employed, with adjustments for age, disease duration, and other covariables as appropriate...

Environmental pollution is one of the main factors responsible for reducing fertility in males. Lead is one of the major heavy metal contaminants that impairs several organs; it preferentially accumulates in male reproductive organs and alters sperm quality both in vivo and in vitro. However, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Sertoli cells (SCs) provide structural and physiological support to spermatogenic cells within seminiferous tubules. Therefore, changes in SCs affect the developing germ cells and alter spermatogenesis...
