Klinefelter syndrome (KS) prevalence at invasive prenatal diagnosis (ipd) procedures: a systematic review of the literature

Costantino Francesco , De Vincentis Sara , Chiara Decaroli Maria , Rochira Vincenzo

Introduction: KS prevalence is estimated to range from 0.1-0.2 % in men and actually the estimated frequency is of about 1:500 to 1:1000 men1. However, the real prevalence remains unknown due also to the fact that the disease is often overlooked and undermanaged1.Aim and methods: We performed a systematic literature search including studies published between 1971 and January 2024 to investigate the real prenatal prevalence of KS (in...

Evidence of a non-classical phenotype of hypoparathyroidism in a cohort of adult patients with iron overload diseases

Evangelisti Selene , De Vincentis Sara , Rossi Barbara , Chiara Decaroli Maria , Locaso Michela , Ferrara Francesca , Rochira Vincenzo

Background: Iron overload disorders (IOD) are associated with a higher occurrence of unbalanced calcium (Ca)-phosphorous (P) metabolism, including hypoparathyroidism (HPT). However, data about prevalence and presentation of HPT in this setting are scanty. A Ca/P ratio <2.32 has been proposed to detect HPT in the general population.Aim: To characterize Ca-P homeostasis, particularly the prevalence of HPT, in a cohort of adult patients with IOD compare...

A comparison of pituitary function in primary and secondary empty sella: preliminary data

Magnani Elisa , Chiara Decaroli Maria , Leoni Laura , Diazzi Chiara , Rochira Vincenzo

Background: Empty sella (ES), the herniation of the subarachnoid space within sella associated with a variable flattening of the pituitary gland, is classified as primary (PES) or secondary (SES) on the basis of etiological factors.Aim: To assess the differences between PES and SES in terms of pituitary function.Methods: Clinical, radiological and hormonal data were retrospectively extrapolated from the records of 85 patients with ...

Background: ED is highly prevalent in HIV-infected men. T leads sexual behavior in men, but preliminary data suggests that ED is poorly related to serum T in HIV--infected men.Aim: To explore the relationship between sexual function and gonadal function in young/middle-aged HIV-infected men.Methodology: Prospective, cross-sectional, observational study on HIV-infected men (age <50 years). Serum TT was assessed by the gold stand...
