Introduction: Kearns-Sayre syndrome (KSS) is a rare mitochondrial cytopathy. The diagnosis of KSS is made on the classical triad of symptoms: onset of the disease <20 years of age, progressive external ophthalmoplegia (PEO) and pigmentary retinopathy (PR). KSS is manifested also by other systemic abnormalities: cardiac conduction defects, different neurological abnormalities and several endocrine disorders. A variety of deletions and/or duplications in mtDNA, affecting gen...

Introduction: Combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD) results in deficit of growth hormone and coexisting failure of synthesis or excretion at least another pituitary hormone. Transcription factors controlling expression of genes required for pituitary organogenesis are orchestrating entire development process and certain cell lineages differentiation, contributing therefore significantly to CPHD pathogenesis with childhood onset.Aims: The purpose o...
