We report here the genetic findings of a new isolated familial somatotropinoma (IFS) kindred in which the mother (subject I:2) and one daughter (subject II:2) are affected; their ages at diagnosis were 25 and 14 years respectively. Additionally, patient I:2 developed virilization due to an androgen-secreting adrenocortical mass, presenting clinical and(More)

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a complex endocrine disease that affects 5-8% of women and may be associated with metabolic syndrome, which is a risk factor for cardiovascular(More)
INTRODUCTION Activating mutations in exon 3 of the β-catenin gene are involved in the pathogenesis of adamantinomatous craniopharyngiomas. Recently, the interaction between β-catenin and PROP1 has been shown to be responsible for pituitary cell lineage determination. We hypothesized that dysregulated PROP1 expression could also be involved in the(More)
