Background: The age at adiposity rebound (AR), at which BMI begins to rise after infancy around the age of 5 years, is associated with obesity and metabolic alteration in later life. Given that polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has strong metabolic components, early growth patterns could reveal predisposition for PCOS. Thus, we aimed to investigate the associations of growth trajectories from birth to puberty with PCOS diagnosis,vbody composition and hyperandrogenism later in a...

Background: Cardiovascular disease is an important cause of morbidity/mortality in chronic GH hypersecretion.Aim: To evaluate cardiovascular system in a large series of patients with pituitary gigantism. Standard case report forms were used with height assessments related to local country norms. Results: 151pts (123 male) with GH-excess and abnormal growth velocity for age or final height >2SD over local norms had complete data on cardiac assessments...
