Growth Hormone Deficiency and Lysinuric Protein Intolerance: Case Report and Review of the Literature. - JIMD reports
Lysinuric protein intolerance (LPI; MIM# 222700) is a rare metabolic disorder caused by a defective cationic amino acids (CAA) membrane transport leading to decreased circulating plasma CAA levels and resulting in dysfunction of the urea cycle. Short stature is commonly observed in children with LPI and has been associated with protein malnutrition. A correlation between LPI and growth hormone deficiency (GHD) has also been postulated because of the known interaction between the AA arginine, ornithine, and lysine and growth hormone (GH) secretion. Our report describes a case of GHD in an LPI patient, who has not presented a significant increase in growth velocity with recombinant-human GH (rhGH) therapy, suggesting some possible pathogenic mechanisms of growth failure.The proband was a 6-year-old boy, diagnosed as suffering from LPI, erythrophagocytosis (HP) in bone marrow, and short stature. Two GH provocative tests revealed GHD. The patient started rhGH therapy and a controlled-protein diet initially with supplementation of oral arginine and then of citrulline. At 3-year follow-up, no significant increase in growth velocity and in insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) levels was observed. Inadequate nutrition and low plasmatic levels of arginine, ornithine, lysine, and HP may have contributed to his poor growth.Our case suggests that growth failure in patients with GHD and LPI treated with rhGH could have a complex and multifactorial pathogenesis. Persistently low plasmatic levels of lysine, arginine, and ornithine, associated with dietary protein and caloric restriction and systemic inflammation, could determine a defect in coupling GH to IGF-1 production explaining why GH replacement therapy is not able to significantly improve growth impairment. We hypothesize that a better understanding of growth failure pathophysiology in these patients could lead to the development of more rational strategies to treat short stature in patients with LPI.
Incidental endometrial adenocarcinoma in early pregnancy: a case report and review of the literature. - International journal of gynecological cancer : official journal of the International Gynecological Cancer Society
Endometrial cancer is the most common neoplasia of the female reproductive system, with the highest incidence among uterine malignancies, and is rarely associated with pregnancy. Thirty-five cases of pregnancy-associated endometrial cancer have been reported in literature, of which ours represents the 20th case diagnosed during the first trimester. A 39-year-old woman, gravida 4, para 2, was diagnosed with a focal, well- to moderately differentiated endometrial adenocarcinoma (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage IA and grades G1 and G2) after dilatation and curettage (D&C) for a spontaneous abortion. The patient underwent progestational therapy and follow-up hysteroscopies and D&C to preserve fertility; she is alive and well 18 months after diagnosis. Recurrence of endometrial cancer coexisting with early pregnancy has not been reported in the literature. Conservative therapy for early endometrial cancer, diagnosed at the time of pregnancy, may be an option. Routine histologic examination after D&C performed for spontaneous abortion seems advisable.
