There was no capsule involving the lesional bone that blended with normal bone. In some cases, due to accentuated deformity, a precocious surgical removal should be performed providing functional and esthetic improvement The basis of GH hypersecretion in MAS remains incompletely understood, but it appears to have a different basis from that of acromegaly or gigantism in non-MAS patients. Eleanor E Sahn, MD is a member of the following medical societies: We present a case of MAS associated with acromegaly, treated effectively with long-acting octreotide and cabergoline.

The fibrous dysplasia was limited to the jaw. Permanent effect on growth potential is also possible.

Individualized approach to the surgical management of fibrous dysplasia of the proximal femur. DNA light on the Tegernsee giant. The disorder is characterized clinically by the classic triad of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia POFDcafe-au-lait skin pigmentation, and peripheral precocious puberty. In fibrous dysplasia lesions, CT imaging is of paramount importance to demonstrate the granular texture of the lesional tissue and to determine the extension of the lesion in the craniofacial skeleton.


Gross total resection or debulking of pituitary adenomas improves hormonal control of acromegaly by somatostatin analogs. They commonly d, even after attempts at surgical resection. Males with McCune-Albright syndrome may present with benign testicular tumors, though testicular cancer appears to be rare.

Clinical presentation of McCune-Albright syndrome in males. Prognosis Albritht from the small subgroup of patients with increased perioperative mortality and those patients who develop malignancies, MAS is not associated with a significantly increased mortality. Elevated transaminases in this infant, however, persisted long after the glucocorticoid excess had been corrected with adrenalectomy.

The endocrinologist, in turn, offers other referrals as indicated eg, neurosurgeon see Treatment. Ann NY Acad Sci ; Gigantism or acromegaly can occur, carrying a risk of glucose intolerance, hypertriglyceridemia, hypertension, and mild myopathy. Principles of Bone Biology.

Am J Med Genet. Hypophosphatemic rickets is a potential complication that may worsen the bone disease associated with PFD.

Although no arrhythmias have been detected in individuals with MAS, this is the presumed mechanism of sudden death. We need long-term secure funding to provide you the information that you need at your fingertips. The authors concluded that affections as clinically different as monostotic fibrous dysplasia, isolated peripheral fe puberty, neonatal liver cholestasis, and the classic MAS all appear to be components of a wide spectrum of diseases based on the same molecular defect.

Due to the presence of diffuse thickness in skull base bones, surgical approach was not considered effective and the patient was submitted to drug therapy with octreotide LAR and cabergoline. European Journal of Endocrinology.

PFD – Multiple pathologic fractures may be prominent early in the history; in many cases, bony involvement is found mcdune predominate clinically on 1 side; potential presenting features include gait anomalies, visible bony deformities including abnormal bone growths of the skullbone pain, and joint stiffness with pain.

Ketoconazole treatment of gonadotropin independent precocious puberty in girls with McCune-Albright syndrome: The activated Gs alpha disassociates from the receptor, binds to adenylyl cyclase, and stimulates an increase in intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate cAMP levels. Two cases with a review of the literature.

Secondary to the development of autonomous cellular function in response to genetic mutation, endocrinopathies may be observed, such as hyperthyroidism, growth hormone GH excess, renal phosphate wasting and Cushing syndrome 3,6,7. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.

Severe cases of MAS involving multiple endocrine tissues may be recognized shortly after birth. Long-term efficacy of oral alendronate therapy in an elderly patient with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia: Pituitary hormone abnormalities may occur.
