ea0056d4.1 | AMH as the Primary Marker for Fertility | ECE2018

AMH is the primary marker for fertility (Pro)

Dewailly Didier

In women, the anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) is secreted by the granulosa cells of the growing follicles. Its assay is therefore strongly correlated with the antral follicular count and represents a reliable marker of the ovarian reserve. It also has the advantage of being very reproducible since it has little intra- and inter-cyclic variation. However, it seems to be a good quantitative reflection of the ovarian reserve but not qualitative. This drawback does not make this assa...

The current definitions of the metabolic syndrome underestimate the prevalence of nascent metabolic abnormality in adolescents with PCOS

Dewailly Didier , Catteau-Jonard Sophie , Reyss Anne-Céline

Background: The prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (MS) is notably higher in patients with PCOS than in the general population. Presumably, this prevalence increases as a function of age but the subgroups of patients less than 20 yr. old studied so far are small.Design: In order to further document this issue, we have selected for this study 498 patients with PCOS aged 12.5–38 yr (Rotterdam definition) and 188 control women aged 15.5–38.5 yr,...

Delayed puberty with extreme uterine hypotrophy: do not conclude too early to the absence of the uterus

Yollin Edwige , Catteau-Jonard Sophie , Reyss Anne-Céline , Cortet Christine , Dewailly Didier

Objective: To emphasize the difficulties to distinguish between uterine agenesis and extreme uterine hypotrophy in the context of primary amenorrhea with delayed puberty.Patients and methods: Among adolescents who consulted our center because of primary amenorrhea, from 1997 to 2005, three patients were referred for a suspicion of Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome, after ultrasonography had failed visualizing the uterus. The 3 patients underwent en...

Mutations of GnRH receptor and GPR54 in a cohort of patients with idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism

Objective: To determine the frequency of mutations of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (GnRHR) and of the G protein-coupled receptor 54 (GPR54) genes in normosmic idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism patients (IHH).Methods: In a retrospective study we analysed the GnRHR and the GPR54 genes of 327 IHH patients including 105 females (36.5%) and 183 males (63.5%). Among the index cases (288 siblings) 267 were sporadic form (92.7...
