Turner Syndrome and Fertility.

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 Jun 18. Epub 2022 Jun 18.

Department of Molecular Medicine, Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus N, Denmark; Department of Endocrinology, Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus, Denmark. Electronic address:

Turner syndrome (TS) is tightly associated with hypergonadotropic hypogonadism and ovarian dysgenesis, typically resulting in infertility in the great majority of patients. Therefore females with TS are usually treated with female sex steroids from 11-12 years of age until the normal age of natural menopause of around 53-54 years of age. Infertility is rated among females with TS as a distressing concern and a detractor from a good quality of life. Read More

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

Service de Néphrologie et d'Exploration Fonctionnelle Rénale, Hospices Civils de Lyon, Hôpital Edouard Herriot, Lyon, France; Université Lyon 1, Lyon, France; Centre de Référence des Maladies Rares du Calcium et du Phosphore, Centre de Référence des Maladies Rénales Rares, Filières de Santé Maladies Rares OSCAR, ORKID et ERKNet, France.

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is a hypercalcemic hormone acting on kidneys, bone and intestine. PTH promotes calcium release from the bone, renal calcium reabsorption and phosphate excretion, and conversion of 25-hydroxyvitamin D to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D-3. Hyperparathyroidism consists in PTH elevation, which may be adapted (secondary hyperparathyroidism) or non-adapted to calcemia levels (primary hyperparathyroidism, familial hypercalcemia/hypocalciuria, tertiary hyperparathyroidism).

Fertility preservation for prepubertal boys: are we ready for autologous grafting of cryopreserved immature testicular tissue?

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 Jun 30;83(3):210-217. Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Department of Gynecology-Andrology, Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc, Brussels 1200, Belgium; Andrology Lab, Institut de Recherche Expérimentale et Clinique (IREC), Université Catholique de Louvain, Brussels 1200, Belgium. Electronic address:

Fertility preservation in prepubertal boys is a matter that has been gaining ground fast during the past 20 years. As the life expectancy for childhood cancer survivors continues to increase (5-year survival rate>80%), and as the risk of permanent infertility in adulthood is still high with current treatment options, offering a testicular biopsy to cryopreserve immature testicular tissue (ITT) containing spermatogonial stem cells is now recommended as an experimental option for fertility preservation. Transplantation of cryopreserved testicular prepubertal tissue fragments back to the cured patient appears to be one of the most feasible and promising techniques for fertility restoration.

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 Jun 27;83(3):181-185. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

AP-HP, IE3M, hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière, department of endocrinology and reproductive medicine and Centre de référence des maladies endocriniennes rares de la croissance, centre de référence des pathologies gynécologiques Rares, ICAN, Paris, France; Sorbonne Université, Paris, France. Electronic address:

21-Hydroxylase deficiency (21OHD) is the most common cause of congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Increased production of adrenal-derived androgens and progesterone in 21OHD women interfere with their reproductive function and their fertility in many different ways, depending on the severity of the disease. Sexuality and fertility in women with classic 21OHD is impaired, due to several issues such as disrupted gonadotropic axis due to androgen and progesterone overproduction, and mechanical, psychological factors related to genital surgery.

Fine-needle aspiration cytology repetition in thyroid nodules with non-diagnostic findings or atypia of undetermined significance/follicular lesions of undetermined significance: Does time matters?

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 Apr 27. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Division of Endocrinology, Department of Internal Medicine, Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Porto, Porto, Portugal.

Introduction: After a nondiagnostic (ND) result or findings of atypia of undetermined significance/follicular lesion of undetermined significance (AUS/FLUS), the current recommendation is for fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of the thyroid nodule to be repeated after at least 3 months. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the interval between FNACs has any influence on the final cytological diagnosis.

Methods: This was a retrospective study including all patients who underwent FNAC for the first time between January 2016 and December 2019 with ND or AUS/FLUS cytological results and then underwent a second FNAC procedure. Read More

Gonadal function in Noonan syndrome.

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 Jun 27;83(3):203-206. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Endocrine, Bone Diseases, and Genetics Unit, Children's Hospital, Toulouse University Hospital, 330, avenue de Grande-Bretagne TSA 70034, 31059 Toulouse Cedex 9, France.

Noonan syndrome (NS) is a relatively common developmental disorder characterised by the association of craniofacial abnormalities, congenital heart defects, short stature and skeletal abnormalities, variable developmental delay/learning disability, and predisposition to certain cancers. NS is caused by germline mutations in genes encoding components or regulators of the RAS/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathway. Although abnormalities in the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis have long been reported in NS patients, there is only scarce published data on this subject. Read More

Modified dynamic risk stratification system further predicts individual outcome in patients with intermediate-risk papillary thyroid cancer.

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 Apr 25. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Emeritus Professor, Instituto Nacional de Cancerología, Bogotá, Colombia.

Objective: We assessed the contribution of initial treatment response to further refining prediction of individual outcomes in intermediate-risk papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) on the American Thyroid Association (ATA) risk stratification system. Dynamic risk stratification (DRS) as originally proposed by Tuttle et al. in 2010 was modified to also include serum antithyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb) as a surrogate marker of the likelihood of persistent disease, specifically in patients with thyroglobulin assay interference by TgAb.

Adolescent and young adult psychiatry unit, Institut Mutualiste Montsouris, 42, boulevard Jourdan, 75014 Paris, France.

Anorexia nervosa is a psychiatric disorder that mainly affects women (sex ratio 1/10) and for which the prognosis remains poor (10% of deaths and high risk of chronicity). This disorder is associated with a risk of infertility explained by different physiopathological pathways. Thus, the clinical and subclinical forms of this disease may be over-represented in populations of women using medically assisted reproduction technologies. Read More

Impact of Cushing's syndrome on fertility and pregnancy.

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 Jun 17;83(3):188-190. Epub 2022 Apr 17.

Aix-Marseille University, U1251 Marseille Medical Genetics, Marmara Institute, and Department of endocrinology, La Conception Hospital, Assistance publique Hôpitaux de Marseille, Marseille, France.

Cushing's syndrome is defined by an endogenous or exogenous hypercortisolism. Increased cortisol, as well as increased androgens will have a negative impact on the pulsatile secretion of GnRH, thus leading to an increased risk of infertility. However, pregnancy can occur in a woman with Cushing's syndrome: it is a challenging situation, because of the numerous consequences which can be observed in the mother (increased risk of gestational diabetes, hypertension, eclampsia… in addition to the specific complications of hypercortisolism) and in the fetus (intrauterine growth retardation, prematurity).

Electronic address:

Several lines of evidence show that gonadal functions and insulin sensitivity display multifaceted relationships, which extend far beyond the well-known association between polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), obesity, and metabolic syndrome. In this brief review, we will summarize the main findings showing the pathophysiological role of insulin resistance in impairing reproductive functions. Extreme phenotypes of severe insulin resistance, due to primary defects in insulin receptor or to lipodystrophy syndromes, provide unique opportunities for the modeling of interactions between insulin signaling and ovarian endocrine functions.

Consensus statement by the French Society of Endocrinology (SFE) and French Society of Pediatric Endocrinology & Diabetology (SFEDP) on diagnosis of Cushing's syndrome.

Ann Endocrinol (Paris) 2022 Apr 19;83(2):119-141. Epub 2022 Feb 19.

Service d'Endocrinologie Nutrition, Hôpital Ambroise-Paré, GHU Paris-Saclay, AP-HP Boulogne, EA4340, Université de Versailles-Saint-Quentin, Paris, France.

Cushing's syndrome is defined by prolonged exposure to glucocorticoids, leading to excess morbidity and mortality. Diagnosis of this rare pathology is difficult due to the low specificity of the clinical signs, the variable severity of the clinical presentation, and the difficulties of interpretation associated with the diagnostic methods. The present consensus paper by 38 experts of the French Society of Endocrinology and the French Society of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetology aimed firstly to detail the circumstances suggesting diagnosis and the biologic diagnosis tools and their interpretation for positive diagnosis and for etiologic diagnosis according to ACTH-independent and -dependent mechanisms.
