INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of obesity in Mexican children has increased during the last decade, as has the risk of early onset metabolic disorders and cardiovascular disease. OBJECTIVE: To determine the association ofAcantosis nigricans (AN)with dyslipidemia, high blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), and risk factors related to eating behavior in overweight and obese children. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This transverse analytical study, conducted in two Mexico City primary schools, included 300 boys and girls...

The risks of reproductive problems are higher in underweight and overweight or obese women, especially in case of rapid weight gain or loss. But evidence is inconsistent especially in relation to the effect of age of body weight changes. The aim of the study was detection of peculiarities of sexual development and reproductive function in underweight and overweight/obese females with childhood thinness or childhood obesity. 103 young females (48 - with low BMI, 55 - with high BMI) with different reproductive problems were examined prospectively...

Insulin resistance (IR) is one of the common features of the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and recent studies indicate the possible role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis of IR and glucose metabolism. Aim of this study was aimed to determine the effect of vitamin D replacement therapy on glucose metabolism, insulin, and androgen levels in obese, insulin-resistant women with PCOS. Eleven women with PCOS were included in the study. Mean age of the patients was 23.6+/-5.7 yr, body mass index 33.9+/-5.1 kg/m(2)...

We evaluated the glucose and lipid metabolism in 65 patients (aged 1.1-55 years) with mulibrey (muscle-liver-brain-eye) nanism (MUL), which is a monogenic disorder with prenatal-onset growth failure and typical clinical characteristics. MUL is caused by mutations in the TRIM37 gene, encoding a peroxisomal protein (TRIM37) with E3 ubiquitin-ligase activity. The subjects underwent clinical evaluation, abdominal ultrasonography, and laboratory measurements, including a 3-h oral glucose tolerance test. The results showed a dramatic change in glucose and lipid metabolism with age in MUL subjects...

BACKGROUND: Infantile obesity is a probable risk factor for the early appearance of chronic illnesses like Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Dislipidemia and Hypertension. Insulin Resistance (IR) appears as the common etiological mechanism. AIM: To describe metabolic complications associated to obesity in a group of Chilean children and to correlate them with IR, estimated through the homeostasis model assessment index (HOMA). SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We studied 88 children, 12 +/- 2...

Partial lipodystrophy (PLD) is an infrequent condition characterized by symmetric loss of subcutaneous adipose tissue in the upper or lower part of the body, although occasionally it affects only the extremities. In all cases it appears along with acantosis nigricans (AN), insulin resistance and impairment in the metabolism of lipids and carbohydrates. The case depicted pertains to a 49 year old female with no family history involving loss of adipose tissue in face and upper body. No fat in lower part of body was observed...

Acantosis Nigricans (AN) is a skin disease with rough or velvet areas present on neck or as hyperpigmented and wrinkled skin. AN often forms HAIR-AN syndrome consisted of hyperandrogenizm, insulin resistance and AN. We present AN and PCO syndrome in 13 yrs old girl treated by laparoscopic wedge resection. We concluded that laparoscopic procedure is a diagnostic measure and mode of PCO treatment. Decreased hyperandrogenizm resulted in AN appearance withdrawall.
