Genotype-phenotype correlation in Romanian patients with classical forms of 21-hydroxylase deficiency

Zimmermann Anca , Grigorescu Sido Paula , Al-Khzouz Camelia , Nistor Tiberiu , Weber Matthias M , Schulze Egbert

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) comprises autosomal recessive disorders mainly due to defects in the 21-hydroxylase (CYP21) gene. We aimed to perform a genotype-phenotype analysis in Romanian patients with classical 21-hydroxylase deficiency.Patients and methods: We included 42 patients (13 males, 29 females, 19 with the salt wasting (SW) form, 29 with the simple virilizing (SV) form. Molecular analysis was performed by direct sequencing of PCR ampl...

Gene variants of osteoprotegerin, estrogen-, calcitonin- and vitamin D-receptor genes and serum markers of bone metabolism in patients with Gaucher disease type 1

Purpose: Osteopathy/osteoporosis in Gaucher disease type 1 (GD1) shows variable responses to enzyme replacement therapy (ERT); the pathogenesis is incompletely understood. We aimed to investigate the effect of several gene variants on bone mineral density (BMD) and serum markers of bone metabolism in GD1.Patients/methods: 50 adult Caucasian patients with GD1/117 controls were genotyped for gene variants in the osteoprotegerin (TNFRSF11B; OPG), estrogen r...

Alterations in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism in patients with classic CAH due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency

Zimmermann Anca , Sido Paula Grigorescu , Khzouz Camelia Al , Patberg Karen , Bucerzan Simona , Schulze Egbert , Zimmermann Tim , Weber Matthias M

Background: Classic 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21HD) presents some traits of the metabolic syndrome. We aimed to characterize discrete alterations of lipid and carbohydrate metabolism in children and young adults with classic 21HD, which could predict early atherogenesis.Design: Cross-sectional comparative.Patients and methods: Of 27 Caucasian patients with classic 21HD (4–31 years); 27 sex-, age- and BMI-matched controls. Cli...

Introduction: Acromegalic patients (AP) often report fatigue and chronic subjective complaints. We aimed to investigate in more detail these aspects in AP, dependent on disease activity, age, gender, medication and pituitary insufficiency (PI).Patients/methods: Cross sectional, 124 patients (M/W 51/73, age 58.3±14.7 years, 49/75–active/controlled disease). The patients completed the Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory (MFI-20) and the Giessen Su...
