Hypogonadism in Adult Males with Prader-Willi Syndrome—Clinical Recommendations Based on a Dutch Cohort Study, Review of the Literature and an International Expert Panel Discussion
A practical algorithm for TRT in adult males with PWS is provided in order to prevent undertreatment and related adverse health outcomes and an international expert panel discussion is presented.
Hypogonadism and liver fibrosis in HIV-infected patients
Whereas obesity is related to secondary hypogonadism, high SHBG levels, related to liver fibrosis degree and HCV co-infection, are responsible for compensated forms.
Hypogonadism in Women with Prader-Willi Syndrome—Clinical Recommendations Based on a Dutch Cohort Study, Review of the Literature and an International Expert Panel Discussion
It is shown that hypogonadism is frequent in females with PWS, but is often undiagnosed and untreated, and practical recommendations for the screening and treatment of hypog onadism in femaleswith PWS are provided.
Mechanisms of Central Hypogonadism
Patients with Central Hypogonadism (CH) are often vulnerable, and their clinical management requires both sensitivity and empathy.
Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis in an African Boy: What is the Pathophysiological Link?
An untreated case of systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis in a young African male with co-presentation of hypogonadotropic hypogOnadism is reported and a therapy combining corticosteroid, methotrexate for arthritis, and hormone replacement with testosterone led to regression of arthritis, biological inflammatory syndrome, and hypog onadism.
Hyperprolactinemia and Hypopituitarism in Acromegaly and Effect of Pituitary Surgery: Long-Term Follow-up on 529 Patients
Age, sex, body mass index, tumor size, invasiveness, prolactin staining, ki-67 index, and GH/IGF-1 levels were significantly correlated with preoperative hypopituitarism and hyperprolactinemia.

The HPG axis is susceptible to congenital malformations, with reports of mutations within >50 genes that manifest with congenital CH, including Kallmann Syndrome associated with hyposmia or anosmia (reduc‐ tion or loss of the sense of smell due to the closely associated migration of GnRH with olfactory neurons during embryogenesis).
Educational status, testosterone replacement, and intelligence outcomes in Klinefelter syndrome
The level of education and hormonal therapy can be selectively implicated in the intellectual variability in KS, with significant differences between adult's and children's IQ and between verbal and nonverbal indexes.

Beyond hormone replacement: quality of life in women with congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism
The presumable availability of treatment does not necessarily ensure adequate quality of life for women with isolated GnRH deficiency, and women identified isolation, need for information and finding expert care as challenges to living with CHH.
Testosterone therapy in men with androgen deficiency syndromes: an Endocrine Society clinical practice guideline.
The guidelines for the evaluation and treatment of androgen deficiency syndromes in adult men published previously in 2006 are updated and testosterone therapy is recommended for men with symptomatic androgens deficiency to induce and maintain secondary sex characteristics.
