Sequence of puberty
Thelarche-Adrenarche-Growth spurt-Menarche
Genetic defect in turners
The genetic defect of Turner’s syndrome is the absence of one of the X chromosomes
What is Kallman Syndrome?
Tx?
Kallmann syndrome is characterized by olfactory tract hypoplasia and the arcuate nucleus does not secrete GnRH. Therefore these females have no sense of smell and do not develop secondary sexual characteristics. The diagnosis is often one of exclusion found during the workup of delayed puberty. The presence of anosmia with delayed puberty should suggest Kallmann syndrome. Treatment is pulsatile GnRH therapy.
Tx for precocious puberty
treatment would include GnRH agonist to suppress pituitary production of follicular-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone
NOrmal range for menarche
Normal age for menarche is between 9 and 17
Tx for Congenital adrenal hyperplasia
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia of the 21-hydroxylase type results in the adrenal being unable to produce adequate cortisol as a result of a partial block in the conversion of 17-hydroxyprogesterone to desoxycorticosterone, with the accumulation of adrenal androgens. This leads to precocious adrenarche. Treatment includes steroid replacement.
Next step in someone with mullerian agenesis
Renal U/S: Renal anomalies occur in 25-35% of females with Mullerian agenesis. The uterus and cervix are absent, but the ovaries function normally and, therefore, secondary sexual characteristics are present. You would expect the karyotype in this patient to be 46,XX.
