ConclusionsGlucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, Wilson's disease and lysosomal disorders should be considered for early diagnosis through newborn screening along with the acknowledged disorders hypothyroidism and hemoglobinopathies in Nepal. Early intervention in these disorders can significantly reduce morbidity and mortality in infancy.

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: Molecular and Cellular EndocrinologyAuthor(s): Héctor M. Targovnik, Karen G. Scheps, Carina M. RivoltaAbstractPrimary congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is the most common endocrine disease in children and one of the most common preventable causes of both cognitive and motor deficits. CH is a heterogeneous group of thyroid disorders in which inadequate production of thyroid hormone occurs due to defects in proteins involved in the gland organogenesis (dysembryogenesis) or in multiple steps of thyroid hormone biosynthesis (dyshormonogenesis). Dysembryogenesis is ...

Authors: Krassas GE, Markou KB Abstract The aim of this review is to provide relevant information regarding the impact of thyroid disease, starting from birth and mainly concerning hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, on reproduction. Hyperthyroidism occurs much less commonly in children than hypothyroidism, with Graves' disease (GD) being the most common cause of thyrotoxicosis in children. Children born with neonatal GD have no defects in the reproductive system that could be related to hyperthyroidism. Current treatment options include antithyroid drugs (ATD), surgery, and radioactive iodine (RAI). In males, norm...

We report a case of a girl with BSS associated with clinical features of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) with phenotypic spectrum of DiGeorge syndrome/velocardiofacial syndrome. She has a history of life-long bleeding tendency, tetralogy of Fallot, hypothyroidism, mild facial dysmorphic signs and macrothrombocytopenia. The BBS and 22q11.2DS association could be explained by the fact that the constitutional hemizygosity of 22q11.2 may unmask an autosomal recessive disorder caused by alterations of the nondeleted GPIbβ allele. We suggest that all patients with 22q11.2DS and bleeding manifestations should be always tested for BSS.

Discussion Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a clefting problem of the brain. “[HPE] the result of incomplete or absent midline division of the embryonic forebrain into distinct cerebral hemispheres (prosencephalon) between the 18th and 28th day after conception.” There are four distinct subtypes: Alobar – both hemispheres are completely fused and are not separated into the left and right hemispheres. There is agenesis of the corpus callosum, arrhinencephaly and a single ventricle with fused thalami. Facial features are almost always affected. Semilobar – the cerebral hemispheres are fused anteriorly bu...

ConclusionBreech presentation in preterm labor is associated with obstetric risk factors compared to cephalic presentation. These risks decrease linearly with the gestational age. In moderate to late preterm delivery, breech presentation is a high-risk state and some obstetric risk factors are yet visible in early preterm delivery. Breech presentation in extremely preterm deliveries has, with the exception of preterm premature rupture of membranes, similar clinical risk profiles as in cephalic presentation.

AbstractBackgroundThis systematic review was conducted to inform the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care recommendations on screening for thyroid dysfunction (TD). The review sought to answer key questions on the benefits and harms of screening for TD, patients ’ values and preferences for screening, and the benefits and harms of treating screen-detected TD.MethodsThis review followed Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care methods, which include the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) approach. The search strategy used for benefits and harms of screening and tre...

Authors: Etemadi A, Amouzegar A, Mehran L, Tohidi M, Azizi F, Moradi K, Delshad H Abstract Objective Thyroid disorders such as subclinical hypothyroidism and isolated maternal hypothyroxinemia are understudied in pregnant women, despite their possible adverse effects on the health of mother and child. Also, the role of iodine deficiency in developing such disorders has not yet been fully understood. Design The present national population-based cross-sectional study was conducted on 1080 randomly recruited pregnant women, aged 20-40 from 12 provinces of Iran from 2013 to 2014. Method Serum concentrations of TSH, T4,...
