Children with idiopathic growth hormone deficiency should be retested at mid-puberty, say researchers who found a substantial proportion no longer required growth hormone treatment.
An oral glucose tolerance test may identify youths with a more adverse cardiometabolic profile than a fasting plasma glucose test does, say researchers.
Researchers have identified 10 novel single nucleotide polymorphisms that may help to predict the risk for familial short stature in Han Chinese children.
A case series illustrates the highly variable phenotypes of patients with congenital hypopituitarism caused by SOX3 duplication, and strengthens the association with neural tube defects.
Giving hydrocortisone four times daily at a time-varying dose may be the best approach for children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia, say the authors of a pharmaco (P)-kinetic and P-dynamic modelling study.
Children with familial short stature (FSS) who have mutations in their C-type natriuretic peptide receptor (NPR2) gene may respond well to growth hormone (GH) therapy, preliminary study findings indicate
Pubertal boys with true gynaecomastia have a significantly higher oestradiol-to-testosterone ratio than those with pseudogynaecomastia or healthy controls, observational study data show.
Factors including age at diagnosis and the specific disease influence the likelihood of children with chronic endocrine conditions being lost to follow-up, show French study findings.
Childhood cancer survivors and endocrinopathies – the need for oncologist and endocrinologist collaboration
Dr Sogol Mostoufi focuses on the treatment-related endocrine side effects commonly experienced by childhood cancer survivors, and the need for screening, life-long follow-up and treatment in this high-risk population.
Watch the webcast that was recorded in São Paolo with regional experts Dr Alexander Jorge and Professor Ana Claudia Latronico. We discussed the translational advances in Latin America and how an improved understanding of the genetics have contributed to the diagnostics and treatment of growth and puberty disorders.
