Congenital anomalies and congenital adrenal hyperplasia

California Medicine
P J CollippF Plachte


Among 74 patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia observed at Childrens Hospital, Los Angeles, in a 25-year period, 36 had the simple virilizing type and 38 the salt-losing type. During the same time, seven children with virilizing adrenal tumors were observed at the hospital. While virilization and dehydration were the most common presenting symptoms, some of the children first came to medical attention because of other symptoms, and 11 of them died before adrenal hyperplasia had been diagnosed. Twenty-eight additional congenital cardiovascular, genitourinary, and gastrointestinal anomalies were found in 16 of these 74 children. With proper management, the patients tolerated such stresses as surgical operation and infections without difficulty.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
