Objectives: To assess baseline differences on lipid profile in individuals with gender identity disorder (male to female, M2F and female to male, F2M) in relation to prior cross-sex hormone treatment (CHT) or not, and changes in the lipid profile after 24 months of treatment and follow-up in our unit.Methods: Transversal study by revision of medical records of 235 patients visited for first time in our service from 2006 to 2010. Clinical and analytical r...

Velazquez Gloria B. Aranda , Hanzu Felicia A. , Porta Mireia Mora , Ensenat Joaquin , Puig-Domingo Manel , Osaba Maria Jesus Martinez de , Casals Gregori , Verger Eugenia , Ribalta Maria Teresa , Patrascioiu Ioana , Halperin Irene

Introduction: Transsphenoidal surgery (TSS) is the procedure of choice in Cushing disease (CD), with immediate post-operative remission rates ranging between 59 and 94% and recurrence rates between 3 and 46%, both depending upon the definition criteria and the duration of the follow-up. Our aim was to assess the rate of remission, recurrence and persistence of the disease after the first treatment and to identify predictors of remission in the CD population of our center durin...
