Screening for gene SRY by FISH in patients with Turner Syndrome

Guimarães J , Almeida Santos T , Barbosa A , Bastos M , Almeida Santos A , Carvalheiro M

Turner’s Syndrome is one of the most common chromosomal abnormalities found in 1 in 2500 live female births. Y chromosome material is detected in up to 6% of patients by karyotype, but with new technologies (DNA analysis), Y chrmosome sequences have been reported in 60% of patients. The presence of Y material has been associated with virilization and with the development of gonadal neoplasia.Aim: Determine the frequency of Y chromosome sequences in ...

Influence of polycystic ovary syndrome on in vitro fertilization and relationship with the Asn680Ser polymorphism in FSHR gene

Vieira Ines , Filipa Ferreira Ana , Carvalho Alexandra , Dias Conceicao , Fernandes Silvana , Rodrigues Dircea , Cortesao Paulo , Almeida Santos Teresa , Paiva Isabel

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a frequent cause of infertility. Its influence on the results of in vitro fertilization (IVF) is controversial, and generally not isolated from the effect of obesity. A relationship between the FSH receptor (FSHR) polymorphism Asn680Ser and the risk and phenotype of PCOS has been studied with conflicting results.Objectives: To analyze the influence of obesity and PCOS on the gonadal axis...

Alexandrino Jorge Henrique Carmona , Almeida Ferreira Marta , Ramalho Diogo , Ferreira Diogo Santos , Silva Gualter Santos , Almeida Joao Goncalves , Oliveira Maria Joao

Background: Pheochromocytoma (PHEO) is a rare neuroendocrine tumour, classically presenting with hypertension, palpitations and headaches. Some patients have atypical presentations. We report a case of Myocardial Infarction with non-obstructed coronaries (MINOCA) as the key to unravel the diagnosis of PHEO.Clinical case: A 53-year-old man with type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypertension (under gliclazide MR 60 mg id, bisoprolol 5 mg id, ramipril 5 mg id an...

In Vitro Fertilization in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Treatment Individualization Based on Genetic Singularities

Carreira Ana , Vieira Ines , Reis Sandra , Carvalho Alexandra , Dias Conceicao , Fernandes Silvana , Ferreira Ana , Rodrigues Dircea , Sousa Ana , Ramalho-Santos Joao , Cortesao Paulo , Almeida-Santos Teresa , Ramalhinho Ana , Moura-Ramos Mariana , Melo Miguel , Paiva Isabel

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common causes of anovulatory infertility. Polymorphisms in genes related to follicular recruitment and development, such as the follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) and the oestrogen receptor 1 (ESR1) genes, and their impact on biochemical phenotype and response to controlled ovarian stimulation in women with PCOS have been studied in different populations, with inconsistent results.<p class="abstext...

Functional ovarian reserve in women with infertility and euthyroidism: what is the role of thyroid autoimmunity?

Alexandra Festas Silva Diana , Carvalho Tânia , Maresch Ângela , Catarino Diana , Fadiga Lúcia , Reis Guiomar Joana , Gomes Leonor , Leitão Fátima , Cortesão Paulo , Almeida Santos Teresa , PAIVA Isabel

IntroductionThyroid dysfunction is the most common endocrine disorder in women of childbearing age, and is associated with menstrual irregularities, anovulation and infertility. Whether it is thyroid function and/or thyroid autoimmunity (AI) that affects functional ovarian reserve remains to be clarified.AimTo evaluate the association between functional ovarian reserve and thyroid AI in women with infertility...
