Alterations in thyroid hormone level or responsivity to thyroid hormone have significant neurologic sequelae throughout the life cycle. During fetal and early neonatal periods, disorders of thyroid hormone may lead to the development of motor and cognitive disorders. During childhood and adult life, thyroid hormone is required for neuronal maintenance as(More)
Determination of the plasma concentration of testosterone (T) is important in evaluating infants born with ambiguous genitalia and micropenis, and several commercially available kits provide a direct assay of T in unextracted plasma. Using plasma samples obtained from 36 subjects < 6 months old, we compared the concentration of plasma T measured by RIA(More)
During the 10-year period from 1979 to 1988 we evaluated 60 boys who were more than 9 years old and who had significant breast development (greater than 4 cm in diameter) around the time of puberty. An endocrine abnormality was identified in seven subjects. The pathology included Klinefelter's syndrome; 46,XX maleness; primary testicular failure; partial(More)
We studied 2 subjects with a 45,X/46,X,ring(Y) karyotype. Both of them were evaluated because of short stature and a subnormal rate of linear growth. One patient had additional features of the Ullrich-Turner syndrome. Both subjects had normal male external genitalia. Two copies of the pseudoautosomal gene, MIC2, were present in DNA of each individual. All(More)
Among a group of patients with abnormal sexual differentiation, we have identified two subjects who had a 46,XY karyotype, ambiguous genitalia, and well-developed Müllerian structures, but normal appearing testes. The presence of ambiguous genitalia and persistent Müllerian structures implied both Leydig cell and Sertoli cell dysfunction, hence, gonadal(More)
We have reported a kindred in which 46,XY gonadal dysgenesis was inherited in an X-linked (or autosomal dominant sex-limited) manner and in which affected subjects did not have a large duplication of the short arm of the X-chromosome. In the present study we used linkage and sequence analyses to test the role of X-linked and various autosomal genes in the(More)
