Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism revealing a classic form of 21 hydroxylase deficiency in a 39 year old man

Alassane Ilboudo , Carine Courtillot , Yempabou Sagnan , Sophie Dubreuil , Touraine Philippe

Classical forms of 21 hydroxylase defisciency are generally observed during bith life and present as loss of salt or rapid puberty in young boy. We report a rare case of classical 21 hydroxylase defisciency presented as low gonadotrophines contrasted with normal level of testosterone. This was related to a 39 years old patient consulted for male infertility. Clinical exam was normal, including a normal level of blood tension. Liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry...

Premature ovarian failure (POF) encompasses a heterogeneous spectrum of conditions, with phenotypic variability among patients. The etiology of POF remains unknown in most cases. This led us to set up a French network on POF for the purpose of better characterizing POF patients and understanding the mechanisms involved in this pathology. Over the last 10 years, we have evaluated 360 women who were referred to our center with a diagnosis of POF, and performed a study of clinica...

Classical forms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) are generally diagnosed in neonates (salt wasting form) or in early childhood (pure virilizing form). Here, we report the case of a 39 years old man from Sri Lanka in whom a classical CAH has been diagnosed during the exploration of infertility with azoospermia, along with extremely low gonadotropins contrasting with a normal level of testosterone. Hormonal tests revealed high serum 17-hydroxyprogesterone levels (255 ng/m...

Dopamine agonists (DAs), used as first line therapy in patients with macroprolactinomas, and antipsychotics have opposite effects on dopamine receptors (D2R). In patients with severe psychiatric conditions treated with antipsychotics, the rare occurrence of a macroprolactinoma, particularly with optic chiasm compression, represents a therapeutic challenge. Indeed, on one hand, antipsychotics by their antagonistic effect on D2R, could decrease or even abolish the effects of DAs...
