Heterozygous ANKRD17 loss-of-function variants cause a syndrome with intellectual disability, speech delay, and dysmorphism.

Am J Hum Genet 2021 06 27;108(6):1138-1150. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Institute for Human Genetics, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA.

Lipids Responsible for Intestinal or Hepatic Disorder: When to Suspect a Familial Intestinal Hypocholesterolemia?

J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 2021 07;73(1):4-8

Univ. Lyon, Hospices Civil de Lyon, Gastro-enterology and Pediatric Nutrition, Reference Center for Intestinal Rare Disease (MaRDi), Hôpital Femme Mere Enfant, Bron.

Abstract: Familial intestinal hypocholesterolemias, such as abetalipoproteinemia, hypobetalipoproteinemia, and chylomicron retention disease, are rare genetic diseases that result in a defect in the synthesis or secretion of lipoproteins containing apolipoprotein B.In children, these conditions present with diarrhoea and growth failure, whereas adults present with neuromuscular, ophthalmological, and hepatic symptoms. Simple laboratory investigations have shown that diagnosis can be made from findings of dramatically decreased cholesterol levels, deficiencies in fat-soluble vitamins (mostly vitamin E), endoscopic findings of the characteristic white intestinal mucosa, and fat-loaded enterocytes in biopsy samples.

[Pituitary Hypertrophy].

No Shinkei Geka 2021 Mar;49(2):301-315

Department of Neurosurgery, Uonuma Kikan Hospital, Uonuma Institute of Community Medicine.

Pituitary adenomas are the most common cause of sellar masses although there are a number of other neoplastic, infectious, inflammatory, developmental, and vascular etiologies that should be considered. Pregnancy promotes a physiological increase in the size of the maternal pituitary gland, especially adenohypophysis. The normal maturation sequence of the pituitary gland apparently involves a period of physiological hypertrophy in teenagers. Read More
