Autoimmune Diseases in Patients with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency-Our Current State of Knowledge.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Mar 5;22(5). Epub 2021 Mar 5.

Department of Gynecological Endocrinology, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, 60-535 Poznan, Poland.

Premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), previously known as premature ovarian failure or premature menopause, is defined as loss of ovarian function before the age of 40 years. The risk of POI before the age of 40 is 1%. Clinical symptoms develop as a result of estrogen deficiency and may include amenorrhea, oligomenorrhea, vasomotor instability (hot flushes, night sweats), sleep disturbances, vulvovaginal atrophy, altered urinary frequency, dyspareunia, low libido, and lack of energy.

A form of secondary ovarian insufficiency (SOI) due to adrenal hypoandrogenism as new infertility diagnosis.

Endocrine 2021 Apr 2;72(1):260-267. Epub 2020 Oct 2.

The Center for Human Reproduction, New York, NY, 10021, USA.

Background: Mediated via the androgen receptor on granulosa cells, models of small growing follicle stages demonstrate dependence on testosterone. Androgen deficiency reduces ovarian response to follicle stimulation hormone (FSH), granulosa cell mass and estradiol (E2) production falls and FSH, therefore, rises. Though potentially of adrenal and/or ovarian origin, androgen deficiency in association with female infertility is almost universally primarily of adrenal origin, raising the possibility that women with presumptive diagnosis of primary ovarian insufficiency (POI), also called primary ovarian failure (POF) may actually suffer from secondary ovarian insufficiency (SOI) due to adrenal hypoandrogenism that leads to follicular arrest at small-growing follicle stages.

Disruption of the Dimer-Dimer Interaction of the Mumps Virus Attachment Protein Head Domain, Aided by an Anion Located at the Interface, Compromises Membrane Fusion Triggering.

J Virol 2020 01 6;94(2). Epub 2020 Jan 6.

Department of Virology, Faculty of Medicine, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan

Mumps virus (MuV), an enveloped negative-strand RNA virus belonging to the family , enters the host cell through membrane fusion mediated by two viral envelope proteins, an attachment protein hemagglutinin-neuraminidase (MuV-HN) and a fusion (F) protein. However, how the binding of MuV-HN to glycan receptors triggers membrane fusion is not well understood. The crystal structure of the MuV-HN head domain forms a tetramer (dimer of dimers) like other paramyxovirus attachment proteins. Read More

Autoimmune Regulator is required in female mice for optimal embryonic development and implantation†.

Biol Reprod 2019 06;100(6):1492-1504

Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas, USA.

Autoimmune Regulator (AIRE) regulates central immune tolerance by inducing expression of tissue-restricted antigens in thymic medullary epithelial cells, thereby ensuring elimination of autoreactive T cells. Aire mutations in humans and targeted Aire deletion in mice result in multiorgan autoimmune disease, known in humans as autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 1 (APS-1). APS-1 is characterized by the presence of adrenal insufficiency, chronic mucosal candidiasis, and/or hypoparathyroidism. Read More

Xanthogranulomatous Oophoritis: A Rare Case Report.

Iran J Pathol 2018 12;13(3):372-376. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Dept. of Pathology, Dayanand Medical College and Hospital, Ludhiana, India.

Xanthogranulomatous oophoritis is an uncommon, non-neoplastic, chronic process in which the affected organ is destroyed by massive cellular infiltration of foamy histiocytes admixed with multinucleated giant cells, plasma cells, fibroblasts, neutrophils, and foci of necrosis. The etiology of this entity is unknown, but it shares histopathological findings similar to those of xanthogranulomatous change occurring in various organs, including the gallbladder and kidney. The current case was a 20-year-old female presenting with a tubo-ovarian mass with suspicion of malignancy on clinicoradiological findings and final diagnosis of xanthogranulomatous oophritis established on histopathology.

Universidade de São Paulo, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Anatomic Pathology, Emergency Department and LIM06. São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Disseminated human cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease occurs mainly as a congenital infection and among immunocompromised hosts. Patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) are at increased risk for CMV infection, and the most prevalent clinical manifestation is retinitis, followed by colitis, esophagitis, pneumonitis, and encephalitis. CMV oophoritis is poorly described in the literature with some cases reported in patients with hematological or solid malignancies, bone marrow or solid organ transplantation, immunosuppressive therapy, and advanced AIDS cases.
