Bone mineral density in patients with addison disease versus congenital adrenal hyperplasia

Lavrador Mariana , Araujo Barbara Filipa , Carreira Ana , Paiva Sandra , Barros Luisa , Paiva Isabel

Introduction: The treatment of Primary Adrenal Insufficiency involves the chronic use of glucocorticoids. The balance between the dose needed to supply the cortisol deficit and the possible consequences of overtreatment is a challenge. In patients with Addison disease (AD), androgens deficiency is an additional factor for osteoporosis.Objective: To evaluate if there are differences in bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with AddisonÂ’s disease ver...

Reduced bone mineral density in primary adrenal insufficiency: consequences of long-term treatment

Araujo Barbara Filipa , Lavrador Mariana , Araujo Catia , Ferreira Mafalda , Barros Luisa , Paiva Sandra , Paiva Isabel

Introduction: The effects of long-term replacement therapy of primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) are still a matter of debate. Glucocorticoid (GC) replacement regimens do not completely mimic the endogenous hormonal production and their monitoring is sometimes difficult. Therefore, some patients are exposed to mild GC excess with potential complications, such as hypertension, diabetes, and skeletal fragility. Data on bone mineral density (BMD) in PAI is still scarce and contr...

A sporadic case of pseudohypoparathyroidism type Ib and fahr’s syndrome

Araujo Catia , Ferreira Mafalda Martins , Araujo Barbara Filipa , Lavrador Mariana , Baptista Carla , Bastos Margarida , Paiva Isabel

Introduction: Pseudohypoparathyroidism is a heterogeneous disease characterized by hypocalcemia, hyperphosphatemia and parathyroid hormone resistance. The distinct pseudohypoparathyroidism types are distinguished by physical features, the coexistence of other hormone resistances and genetic defects. Pseudohypoparathyroidism type Ib is more often associated with sporadic cases, unlike others types.Clinical Case: Male, born in France, diagnosed with pseudo...
