Management of Familial Hypophosphatemia in Pregnancy

Shonibare Tolulope , Yamoah Kofi

Familial Hypophosphatemia is an inherited disorder of bone metabolism that affects 1 in 20 000 new-borns. The X-linked dominant form of the disease results from a genetic mutation of the PHEX gene. This leads to disordered regulation of fibroblast growth factor 23 resulting in reduced phosphate renal reabsorption and vitamin 1α Hydroxylation. Clinical features include short stature, rickets, craniosynostosis and dental abnormalities.Case: A 29 year ...

An audit of patients with diabetes attending accident and emergency with severe hypoglycaemia

Shonibare Tolulope , Seejore Khyatisha , Moisey Robert

Introduction: Hypoglycaemia remains the major barrier to tight glycaemic control in diabetes. Oral hypoglycaemic agents such as sulphonylureas (SU) remain one of the main options for managing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), but the glucose independent action is associated with an increased risk of hypoglycaemia. We present a retrospective audit of patients attending the A&E Department with severe hypoglycaemia at a large acute trust serving a population of 450 000.<p ...

Furthermore undergoing endoscopic transphenoidal surgery can render patients hypogonadal, thereby reducing the chances of spontaneous conception. In such cases, pregnancy is usually achieved by assisted contraceptive techniques. We present a case of spontaneous pregnancy following transphenoidal surgery and bilateral adrenalectomy.Case...
