An algorithm-based search of the electronic health records of girls with idiopathic short stature can identify those with overlooked Turner syndrome, a study shows.
Retrospective diagnosis of Turner syndrome using electronic health records or screening at initial assessment
Children who are born small for gestational age and have syndromic short stature of unknown cause should be tested for genetic abnormalities using whole-exome sequencing researchers suggest.
Children with growth hormone deficiency receiving once-weekly TransCon human growth hormone achieve a significantly greater annualised height velocity than those receiving daily somatropin, results from the heiGHt trial show.
The type 1 diabetes genetic risk score differentiates between patients with monogenic and polygenic autoimmune diabetes and can thus be used to aid the discovery of novel genes associated with the monogenic form.
Recent developments in the field of pituitary gigantism, including the discovery of a new syndrome and genes related to this syndrome, were presented in a plenary session at the 58th Annual ESPE Meeting in Vienna, Austria.
The genetic causes of short stature are highly heterogenous and a new classification system for these children is needed, delegates were told at the 58th Annual ESPE Meeting in Vienna, Austria.
Growth hormone therapy in young children with Prader-Willi syndrome, genes linked to isolated short stature, and the role of insulin-like growth factor -2 in autoimmune disease are the subjects of three papers included in the 2019 Yearbook of Paediatric Endocrinology.
Oestrogen is key to the management of adolescents and young women with Turner syndrome, with hormone replacement therapy generally preferable to the contraceptive pill, delegates were told at the 58th Annual ESPE Meeting in Vienna, Austria.
