Frasier syndrome (FS) is a rare disease defined by male pseudo-hermaphroditism and progressive glomerulopathy. Patients present with normal female external genitalia, streak gonads and XY karyotype and frequently develop gonadoblastoma. Glomerular symptoms consist of childhood proteinuria and nephrotic syndrome, characterized by unspecific focal and(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of the study were 2-fold: 1) a detailed description of sexual and reproductive outcomes in adult women with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) of different phenotypic severity at birth; and 2) comparisons of these outcomes among CAH subtypes and between CAH women and non-CAH control women. DESIGN This was a cross-sectional(More)
The human testis-determining factor resides within a 35-kilobase (kb) region of the Y chromosome immediately adjacent to the pseudoautosomal boundary. A candidate gene for human sex determination (SRY) was isolated in this region. Here, we describe a study of 25 cases of XY females with pure gonadal dysgenesis for mutations on the Y chromosome short arm,(More)
OBJECTIVES Obstructive uterovaginal duplication is rare and frequently misdiagnosed. The aims of this study were to review all the patients managed for this malformation in our institution, evaluate their long-term outcomes, and discuss the embryologic origin of this malformation. METHODS From 1984 to 2007, we treated 32 patients for obstructive(More)
INTRODUCTION The authors describe and discuss the clinical and therapeutic features of 40 ovarian torsions (OT) in children with its urgent treatment that has advanced in recent years. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study of 40 cases of OT in 38 children under 16 years of age, excluding adnexal torsions in neonates. RESULTS Abdominal and/or(More)
Ovarian failure is often brought about by the conditioning protocol used for bone marrow transplantation (BMT). We monitored ovarian function in 31 girls conditioned for BMT at 10.3 +/- 0.6 (s.e., 3.2-17.5) years by chemotherapy alone (group 1, n = 8) or chemotherapy plus body irradiation (12 Gy, fractionated in group 2, n = 9, or 10 Gy single total body in(More)
Conditioning for bone marrow transplantation (BMT) may alter viability of germ cells and production of gonadal hormones. We analyzed the risk factors for gonadal failure after 12 Gy total body irradiation (TBI) given as six fractions (n = 31, group 1), 10 Gy (one dose) TBI (n = 20, group 2), 6 Gy (one dose) total lymphoid irradiation (TLI, n = 17, group 3)(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The WT1 gene plays a role in urogenital and gonadal development. Germline mutations of this gene have been observed in patients with Drash or Frasier syndrome (Sd). The purpose of this report is to compare phenotype and genotype of these patients. METHODS Retrospective study of 12 patients treated since 1980 for WT1 gene-related(More)
PURPOSE The Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (Rokitansky syndrome) is a frequently misdiagnosed congenital anomaly of the female genital tract. Of several surgical treatments sigmoid vaginoplasty is among the few that provide a functional self-lubricating neovagina. We evaluated the results of sigmoid neovagina in girls affected by the Rokitansky(More)
AIMS Conflicting results exist regarding bone mineral density (BMD), metabolism and reproductive function of adult patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). We evaluated the long-term outcome and the impact of chronic glucocorticoid replacement in these patients. METHODS Physical characteristics, serum hormone concentrations, BMD and metabolism(More)
