Rare Endocrine Diseases 2020

an Endocrine Society Thematic Issue

 

Read our special collection of journal articles, published in 2018–2020, focused on rare endocrine diseases! Curation of the collection was guided by Altmetric Attention Scores and Featured Article designations.

In Endocrine Reviews, Gadelha and coauthors discuss encouraging progress in the treatment of acromegaly and its complications. In the same journal, Dennis Black and colleagues review ways of minimizing the risk of very rare atypical femur fractures occasionally seen with the use of bisphonphonates. Jia Zhu and colleagues discuss the rapid changes in screening for and treatment of adrenoleukodystrophy, a condition that leads to adrenal insufficiency even with treatment by hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

In Endocrinology, Rodriguez et al. describe their discovery that an agonist of growth hormone secretagogue receptor has a striking effect on mortality in a mouse model of Prader-Willi syndrome, which is characterized by over-eating. Mizuno and colleagues use a mouse model of lipoid congenital adrenal hyperplasia to verify the two-hit model of that condition in the animals’ adrenal cortices. Hayashi and coauthors use clinical samples from Cushing syndrome patients as well as cells from a mouse model to tease out the multiple roles of the adipocyte glucocorticoid receptor in that condition.

In Journal of the Endocrine Society, Kohva and coauthors describe the successful induction of puberty in boys with severe congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism using recombinant follicle stimulating hormone. Van Treijan and colleagues review the most effective strategies for detecting nonfunctional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1, favoring endoscopic ultrasound. Fagundes et al. study the close association of pheochromocytomas and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors with missense mutations in the VHL gene, and recommend surveillance for the former from the time of diagnosis of von Hippel-Lindau Disease.

In JCEM, Makri et al. study the high incidence of pheochromocytoma in children and adolescents with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B and find it occurring in children as young as 10 years. Black and colleagues find that the inflammation-based index can usefully identify patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors who are likely to achieve progression-free survival after treatment with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy, thus suggesting a way to avoid futile treatments. Beheshti and coauthors discuss encouraging ways to identify familial premature myocardiac infarction with different familial hypercholesterolemia criteria and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol cut-points.
