Context: Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (CHH) and CHARGE syndrome are clinically and genetically overlapping syndromes, with mutations in the CHD7 gene presenting in both disorders. However systematic evaluation of CHARGE features in CHD7-positive CHH patients is seldom performed.Objective: This study aims to systematically evaluate CHARGE features in CHD7-positive patients and explore the phenotype-genotype correlation.<p...
