Background and Aim: Turner’s syndrome (TS) or 45 XO is a condition in which a female is partly or completely missing an X chromosome. TS affects 0.025–0.05% of females and can involve multiple organs through all stages of life, necessitating a multidisciplinary approach to care. We aim to evaluate our practice compared to the clinical practice guidelines, which recommends the following: annual BMI, blood pressure, HbA1c, lipid profile, liver function, thyroid functio...

Correlation of LH and FSH with serum TSH levels in polycystic ovarian syndrome

Rrupulli Anila , Vrushi Lindita , Gishto Brunilda

Background and objectives: PCOS is the most common endocrine disorders among women between the ages of 17 and 44. It affects approximately 5% to 10% of this age group. It is one of the leading causes of poor fertility. PCOS patients usually develop thyroid disorders which have an adverse effect on fertility and other hormones. Hence this study was done to estimate levels of LH, FSH, and TSH hormones and to find a correlation between LH,FSH and TSH levels.<p class="abstext"...

Ameliorating effect of Cuscuta japonica chois (CJC) extract on hind-limb ischemic mice

Kim Hye Jin , Jung Dong Ho , Yang Hyun , Ko Byung Seob

Cuscuta japonica chois (CJC) has been used traditionally to treat sexual disorder and skin problem such as pimples, freckles and melasma in Korea. The present study aimed to investigate the alleviating effect of CJC extract on surgical injury-induced ischemia in the hind-limb of mice. In this study, Female C57BL/6 mice were ovariectomized and excised the vessels of hind-limb after ligated by surgical silk (6-0). The mice were administered with CJC (150 or 450 mg/kg per day) fo...

Llanes Mark Ramon Victor , Naranjo May

Isochromosome Mosaic Turner Syndrome (IMTS) is a variant of Turner Syndrome (TS) characterized by cytogenetic profile of 1 or more additional cell lineages aside from 45,X, and the presence of a structurally abnormal X chromosome consisting of either two short or two long arms. IMTS is rare, with only 8–9% prevalence among women with TS based on international studies, and 15% of all TS in the Philippines. A 20 year old female came in due to amenorrhea and alopecia.

Serum 25-Hydroxy vitamin D levels and insulin resistance in polycystic ovary syndrome

Gul Ozen Oz , Ulutas Firdevs , Cander Soner , Ersoy Canan

Background: The polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is often seen in reproductive age women. Although the ratio of insulin resistance is not knowm definitely in PCOS patients it is thought to be between 50 to 65%. Several studies have shown that low serum 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D (25(OH) D) levels are associated with high body mass index (BMI), insulin resistance, and waist/hip circumference, but it has not yet been clearly determined. In this study, we aimed to determine the correla...

Tahri Amal , Naifar Manel , Daoud Salima , Kacem Faten Haj , Rebai Tarek , Ayedi Fatma , Abid Mohamed , Sahnoun Zouheir

Imipenem (IMP) is a carbapenem antibiotic mainly used to treat nosocomial infection diseases. We aimed to evaluate the oxidative stress of therapeutic doses of imipenem (IMP) on the ovary of ‘wistar’ rats. In this respect, female rats were divided into four groups: animals were intraperitoneally treated with physiological serum, 30, 50 and 80 mg/kg of IMP for one week. We found that therapeutic doses of this drug did not significantly affect the levels of ovarian mal...

From aneuploidy to eyploidy: a spontaneous, uncomplicated pregnancy in a patient with 45X0/47XXX mosaicism

Mavridi Artemis , Ntali Georgia , Theodora Marianna , Stamatelopoulos Kimon , Michala Lina

Turner syndrome (TS) is a chromosomal abnormality, due to a total or partial loss of one of the X chromosomes and is mostly characterized clinically by short stature and primary ovarian insufficiency. Spontaneous pregnancies in TS are rare (5%) and of relatively high risk, due to cardiovascular complications. Therefore, close medical monitoring is required. We report a case of a 21-year old woman with TS that had a full term uncomplicated pregnancy after spontaneous conception...
