    Kennedy's disease (KD), also known as X-linked spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA), is caused by the expansion of cytosine-adenine-guanine (CAG) repeats in the first exon of the androgen receptor (AR) gene. KD is a late-onset neural-endocrinal disease that is characterized by the degeneration of motor neurons in the brainstem and spinal cord. In addition, partial androgen insensitivity is an important manifestation of KD. Read More

    Testosterone Therapy: Review of Clinical Applications.
    Am Fam Physician 2017 Oct;96(7):441-449
    Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR, USA.
    Testosterone therapy is increasingly common in the United States, and many of these prescriptions are written by primary care physicians. There is conflicting evidence on the benefit of male testosterone therapy for age-related declines in testosterone. Physicians should not measure testosterone levels unless a patient has signs and symptoms of hypogonadism, such as loss of body hair, sexual dysfunction, hot flashes, or gynecomastia. Read More

    A case of Klinefelter syndrome with hypersexual desire.
    Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2017 29;2017. Epub 2017 Aug 29.
    Department of Endocrinology, Canberra Hospital, Canberra, ACTAustralia.
    Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is a chromosomal disorder affecting males, with the typical karyotype of 47,XXY due to a supernumerary X chromosome, which causes progressive testicular failure resulting in androgen deficiency and infertility. Despite it being the most common sex chromosomal disorder, its diagnosis is easily missed. In addition to its classical clinical features of tall stature, gynaecomastia, small testes, and symptoms and signs of hypogonadism including infertility, KS is also often associated with neurocognitive, behavioural and psychiatric disorders.

    J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2017 Jul 30:1-9. Epub 2017 Jul 30.
    b Department of Plastic Surgery , College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University , Seoul , Republic of Korea.
    Gynecomastia is characterized by the benign proliferation of breast tissue in men. Herein, we present a new method for the treatment of gynecomastia, using ultrasound-assisted liposuction with both conventional and reverse-cutting edge tip cannulas in combination with a pull-through lipectomy technique with pituitary forceps through a single transaxillary incision. Thirty patients were treated with this technique at the author's institution from January 2010 to January 2015. Read More

    Adverse effects of androgen deprivation therapy in patients with prostate cancer: focus on metabolic complications.
    Hormones (Athens) 2017 Apr;16(2):115-123
    Department of Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases, Faculty of Medicine, School of Health Sciences, University of Thessaly, Larissa, Greece.
    Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is the most effective treatment for this disease. The cornerstone of the treatment of prostate cancer is inhibition of testosterone production which interrupts testosterone-induced growth of the prostate tumor. The dramatic decrease in testosterone levels, however, has several undesirable effects on the metabolic profile and bone metabolism and can also lead to fatigue, loss of libido, gynecomastia, and anemia, provoke vasomotor flushing, and generally affect the quality of life.

    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2017 Dec 19;41(6):1295-1302. Epub 2017 Jul 19.
    Department of Plastic, Aesthetic, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery, Hannover Medical School, Carl-Neuberg-Str. 1, 30625, Hannover, Germany.
    Introduction: The reconstruction of the body shape after post-bariatric surgery or high-grade gynecomastia involves, besides skin tightening, the repositioning of anatomical, apparent landmarks. The surgeon usually defines these during the preoperative planning. In particular, the positions of the nipple-areola complexes (NAC) should contribute to the gender-appropriate appearance.

    From gene to therapy in spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy: Are we there yet?
    Mol Cell Endocrinol 2017 Jul 5. Epub 2017 Jul 5.
    Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, OX1 3QX Oxford, UK. Electronic address:
    Abnormal polyglutamine expansions in the androgen receptor (AR) cause a muscular condition, known as Kennedy's disease or spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA). The disease is transmitted in an X-linked fashion and is clinically characterized by weakness, atrophy and fasciculations of the limb and bulbar muscles as a result of a toxic gain-of-function of the mutant protein. Notably, affected males also show signs of androgen insensitivity, such as gynaecomastia and reduced fertility. Read More

    Pediatr Endocrinol Rev 2017 Jun;14(4):371-377
    Division of Adolescent/Young Adult Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, MA, USA.
    Gynecomastia, defined as the presence of glandular breast tissue in men, is a common, typically benign physical exam finding during adolescence. Although the exact pathogenesis of gynecomastia is unknown, it is likely due to a hormonal imbalance between estrogens and androgens. Most cases are idiopathic and do not require further evaluation if the history and physical examination are reassuring. Read More
