Time taken for GH-treated adolescent patients, transitioning to adult services, to reach IGF1 levels within the upper normal range: Do we need to monitor more frequently?

Grounds Kerrie , Whittingham Pauline , Didi Mo , Ahmad Aftab

Introduction: According to NICE: adults receiving growth hormone (GH) treatment, IGF1 levels should reach therapeutic range by 9 months. Patients are reviewed at 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months and 6 months thereafter in our clinics. GH dose is titrated by 0.1 mg each visit. This work aims to compare the time it takes to get the IGF1 in range, between adults and adolescent patients attending our specialist regional clinics.Method: We performed a retrospective audi...

Background: Tuberculosis (TB) is an important cause of mortality and morbidity globally. Only a small proportion cases of systemic TB present with lesions spreading to meninges, sella, or ventricles. Cases of intra-sellar pituitary adenoma secondary to TB have been rarely identified, often with uncertainty on medical management as opposed to more aggressive surgical therapy. We report an interesting case of pituitary adenoma presenting with pan-hypopituitarism and posterior pi...
