We report a 21-year-old man with fever, dyspnea, and hemoptysis that was diagnosed with angiosarcoma of the right atrium and pulmonary metastasis. Patient was submitted(More)
OBJECTIVES The pathophysiology of the short stature in girls with Turner syndrome (TS) is not well understood. The "IGF-I generation test" is used to assess the sensitivity to growth hormone. We compared the biochemical response to four days of growth hormone of TS and controls. STUDY DESIGN Pre-pubertal TS were recruited to participate in the study.(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Girls with Turner syndrome (TS) have short stature and benefit from growth hormone therapy (hGH). Some TS present a significant change in height velocity in response to hGH while others have only a mild increment. Our objective was to correlate the response to hGH (height velocity after 6 months of therapy) to biochemical data prior to and(More)
