What is the prevalence and pattern of cancers in Turner syndrome? A single centre cohort study

Goindoo Ryan J , Dilrukshi M D S A , Bragg Fiona , Calanchini Matilde , Turner Helen

Background: Previous population studies suggest cancer morbidity is different in Turner syndrome (TS) compared to the background female population. Whilst gonadoblastoma is well recognized in TS with Y chromosome material, studies have suggested increased prevalence of skin tumours and meningioma but reduced incidence of breast cancer.Methods: Retrospective analysis of an adult TS clinic patient database identified women who developed cancer. Tumour type...

Introduction: Anaemia and other haematological disorders have been reported in Turner Syndrome (TS). TS-related comorbidities (premature ovarian insufficiency, autoimmune hypothyroidism, coeliac disease and liver diseases) and treatments (hormone replacement [HRT] and growth hormone) are possible explanations. We aim to investigate the prevalence of abnormal full blood count (FBC) in adult TS and assess associated clinical characteristics.Methods: FBC pa...

Single-centre analysis of 900 short synacthen tests: do pre-test clinical or biochemical variables predict failure?

Dilrukshi M D S A , Beck K J , Loo H , May C , Jafar-Mohammadi B , Pofi R , Tomlinson J W , Pal A

Short synacthen test (SST) is the most widely used dynamic test of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis function. ItÂ’s simple to conduct but requires nursing time and is relatively costly given 15-fold price increase in synacthen since 2015. We audited our SST use with the aim of reviewing clinical indications for testing and identifying useful predictors of test outcome. Baseline referral, clinical and biochemical data were retrospectively collected for individuals ...
