The Prasad Syndrome is characterized by iron deficiency anemia, hepatosplenomegaly, skin changes, hypogonadism, dwarfism and geophagia. Hypogonadism is a major manifestation of zinc (Zn) deficiency in both humans and animals. T he mechanism of hypogonadism caused by Zn deficiency has not been clarified. We present a 19 year-old boy with short stature, pubertal arrest, iron deficiency anemia and Zn deficiency. Based on the dynamic tests, the hypogonadism seems to be due to hypothalamic… Expand
The triad of Iron deficiency anemia, hepatosplenomegaly and growth retardation with normal serum zinc levels in a 14-year-old boy.
TLDR
Iron deficiency anemia occurring in the triad without zinc deficiency as seen in this case report has not been reported before; this calls for more research to be able to explain the findings. Expand
Hypopituitarism masquerading as Prasad's syndrome: a case report.
TLDR
A 15-year-old boy whose medical history and clinical and laboratory findings were fully compatible with Prasad's syndrome was reported, with severe growth retardation and pubertal delay, iron deficiency anemia and zinc deficiency were determined. Expand
Alkaline phosphatase and insuline-like growth factor-1 levels in Tayanç-Prasad syndrome: A case report
TLDR
Although decreased levels of zinc, ALP and IGF-1 were detected in this particular case, more research is required in a larger number of patients, as a result, zinc defi ciency should be suspected in a patient with iron defiCiency anemia, low ALP levels, as well as geophagia. Expand
Role of Zinc and Copper in Infertility : An Update
Extensive research has been conducted on the role of zinc and copper in the human health and diseases with more emphasis on reproductive health. Deficiency of zinc in men results in reduced libido,Expand
Systemic zinc redistribution and dyshomeostasis in cancer cachexia
TLDR
It is proposed that the acute phase response can mediate Zn redistribution and accumulation in skeletal muscle tissue and contribute to the activation of the ubiquitin–proteasome pathway that regulates protein catabolism. Expand
Effect of Zinc Supplementation on GH, IGF1, IGFBP3, OCN, and ALP in Non-Zinc-Deficient Children
TLDR
Zinc supplementation stimulated an increase in the consumption of some macronutrients and basal serum zinc and improved plasma alkaline phosphatase levels and IGF1 and IGFBP3 levels. Expand
Two Cases Presenting With Pubertal Delay and Diagnosed as Celiac Disease
TLDR
It is concluded that routine screening of celiac disease in the differential diagnosis of delayed puberty should be recommended, and patients aged 13 and 16 years who presented with pubertal delay and who were diagnosed with Celiac disease are described. Expand
Supplementation of various zinc sources modify sexual development and testicular IGF family gene expression in pre-pubertal male Japanese quail.
TLDR
Results showed that supplementation of diet with Zn-methionine is superior to other sources of zinc for diet supplementation in immature Japanese quail. Expand
The Effect of Pumpkin Seed Oil on Zinc Deficient-Induced Reproductive Disorders in Male Rats
TLDR
PSO has some significant positive effects on reproductive functions in male rats in particular those suffering from zinc deficient, and all of the effects could be potentially attributed the high bioactive compound content fatty acids, menieral, antioxidant activity, testis and liver by PSO. Expand
The Role of Maternal Nutrition, Risk Factor Avoidance, and Gene-Environment Interactions in Orofacial Clefting
TLDR
Leading a healthier lifestyle, which includes proper nutrtion and supplementation, is an important method of cleft prevention, and more research needs to be performed on sperm health and its effects on the sensitive fetal period. Expand

Syndrome of iron deficiency anemia, hepatosplenomegaly, hypogonadism, dwarfism and geophagia.
TLDR
Prolonged follow-up of patients receiving a well balanced diet indicates that the endocrine abnormalities of growth and sexual development are reversible. Expand
Hypogonadism in the zinc-deficient rat: localization of the functional abnormalities.
TLDR
Hypogonadism occurs in both zinc-deficient and weight-restricted rats compared with pair-fed and ad libitum-fed controls, and pituitary reserve is intact in zinc- deficient rats, suggesting that pituitaries are intact in this major manifestation of zinc deficiency. Expand
Zinc status and serum testosterone levels of healthy adults.
TLDR
It is concluded that zinc may play an important role in modulating serum testosterone levels in normal men and zinc supplementation of marginally zinc-deficient normal elderly men for six months resulted in an increase in serum testosterone. Expand
Effect of marginal or severe dietary zinc deficiency on testicular development and functions of the rat.
TLDR
The results reflect a direct action of zinc deficiency on testicular steroidogenesis and strongly support the idea that hypogonadism of zinc deficiencies results mainly from changes in testicular steroidsogenesis or indirectly from Leydig cell failure. Expand
Experimental zinc deficiency in man: effect on spermatogenesis.
TLDR
This study has demonstrated that dietary restriction of zinc can decrease sperm count, and that oligospermia induced by mild zinc deficiency is a reversible process, and seems to be a sensitive indicator of zinc deficiency. Expand
Role of zinc in regulating the testicular function. Part 1. Effect of dietary zinc deficiency on serum levels of gonadotropins, prolactin and testosterone in male albino rats.
TLDR
Zinc deficiency has no effect on the pituitary gonadotropin output in male weanling albino rats, and the main role of zinc in regulating the testicular function is elucidated. Expand
Risk of zinc, iodine and other micronutrient deficiencies among school children in North East Thailand
TLDR
The prevalence of zinc and iodine deficiency and their interrelationships with vitamin A deficiency and anemia and associations with socio-economic status, hemoglobin type, and anthropometry in North East Thailand are assessed in a cross-sectional study. Expand
Prevalence and severity of micronutrient deficiency: a cross-sectional study among adolescents in Sri Lanka.
TLDR
A cross-sectional survey in the Galle district of the micronutrient and anthropometric status of 945 school children of ages 12-16 years was performed, finding multiple micronsutrient deficiencies are prevalent in Sri Lankan adolescents. Expand
Response of the reproductive system of male rats to protein and zinc deficiency during puberty.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that hypogonadal states are produced in response to protein deficiency and zinc deficiency but the mechanisms involved are different and specific effects of zinc deficiency are not observed in protein-deficient animals. Expand
