1. Pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1a with congenital hypothyroidism.
Match Strength: 12.548
Pseudohypoparathyroidism type la (PHP-1a) is an uncommon disorder that results from an inactivating mutation in the GNAS gene. It can present with resistance to several hormones, in addition to parathyroid hormone (PTH). Patients may have the classic Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy (AHO) phenotype and can develop resistance to thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), gonadotropins, growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH), and other hormones that rely on the Gsalpha protein to regulate signal transmission at their receptors. We report two siblings with PHP-1a and congenital hypothyroidism. The ... Read More »

2. Genomic-independent action of thyroid hormones on NTPDase activities in Sertoli cell cultures from congenital hypothyroid rats.
Match Strength: 9.894
The Sertoli cells play an essential role in the maintenance and control of spermatogenesis. The ecto-nucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase (E-NTPDase) and 5'-nucleotidase activities can modulate the extracellular adenine nucleotide levels, controlling nucleotide-mediated signaling events in Sertoli cells. Since thyroid hormones (TH) and adenine nucleotides and nucleosides play important modulatory roles in Sertoli cell proliferation and differentiation, the aim of our study was to investigate the effect of hypothyroidism upon the NTPDase and 5'-nucleotidase activities in Sertoli cell ...

3. Transient Congenital Hypothyroidism due to maternal autoimmune thyroid disease.
Match Strength: 7.622
The neonatal screening program for congenital hypothyroidism (CH) in Greece shows an overall incidence of the disease of 1:2321. The cases with permanent CH have an incidence of 1:2542, whereas the transient forms of CH account for 8.7% of all cases diagnosed as CH. Transplacental passage of maternal thyrotropin receptor-blocking antibodies is a rare cause of transient CH. In our program, a retrospective analysis of 508,358 screened newborns revealed 6 infants with transient CH caused by maternal thyroid autoimmunity, representing 2.7% of all cases of CH. All the newborns with transient CH, ... Read More »

4. Immune-mediated etiology of acquired von Willebrand syndrome in systemic lupus erythematosus and in benign monoclonal gammopathy: therapeutic implications.
Match Strength: 6.229
The most common nonimmune etiology of acquired von Willebrand syndrome (AvWS) includes hypothyroidism, Wilms' tumor, thrombocythemia, or congenital heart defects, and the use of various drugs. AvWS type 1 in patients with hypothyroidism is due to decreased Willebrand factor (vWF) synthesis and is reversible by treatment with thyroxin. AvWS type 1 or 3 in children with Wilms' tumor disappears after successful chemotherapy or tumor resection but the mechanism of the vWF deficiency is unknown. The AvWS type 2 in patients with thrombocythemia of various myeloproliferative disorders is caused by ... Read More »
