Article Information, PDF download for Kallmann's Syndrome · Open epub for Wegenke, JD, Uehling, DT, Wear, JB Familial Kallmann syndrome with Syndrome of anosmia with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (Kallmann syndrome). Objective:Kallmann's Syndrome is a heritable disorder characterized by the association of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia or hyposmia. Kallmann syndrome is characterized by the associa- tion of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia. It was originally described in by Maestre de.

We have evaluated color vision in 42 patients with this syndrome.

Our results support the original inclusion of color vision defects in this syndrome. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.

Birth Defects 7: Google Scholar Helve, J. Exons 7, 9, and 11 were each divided into two overlapping segments i. DNA was denatured at 95 C for 5 min in the first cycle and for 30 sec in all subsequent cycles. Annealing was performed at 53— Elongation was performed at 72 C for 30 sec, with a final elongation of 10 min.

Amplification was confirmed by agarose gel electrophoresis. Each product was examined in the absence and presence of a similar amplified segment from a healthy volunteer to look for abnormal patterns.

Positive controls created by PCR-directed mutagenesis 16 , 17 were included on each gel to optimize the TGGE gel conditions and check the sensitivity. SSCP was performed, as previously described 18 , for exon 4 because of difficulties in optimizing the condition for this exon on the TGGE apparatus.

Twenty microliters of PCR product was mixed with 0. Pulsatile LH secretion.


Thirty-seven patients were admitted to the General Clinical Research Center of the Massachusetts General Hospital for overnight blood sampling q 10 min , for 12—24 h, to assess LH levels. The presence of LH pulses was determined by a modification of the method of Santen and Bardin 16 , 17 , as previously described. Individuals were considered as having apulsatile LH secretion if they had 1 peak or less in 24 h, and low amplitude LH secretion if the mean amplitude was less than 2 sds of mean LH amplitude of All immunoassays were performed according to previously published methods 10 , Of the 59 KS cases, 21 were familial.

By pedigree inspection, only a single family seemed X-linked i. Eight families had vertical transmission of partial or complete KS phenotypes, suggesting dominant transmission. In 6 of 8 pedigrees, probands with complete KS had family members in preceding generations with only isolated anosmia but normal reproductive function.

Subjects and Methods

In another 6 families, affected individuals included both affected males and females within sibships; 2 of these families were also notable for consanguinity, suggesting an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. An additional 6 families consisted of 2 or more affected brothers in a single sibship without affected females; these families were labeled as being indeterminate. Genetic counseling. IGD can be inherited in an X-linked , autosomal dominant , or autosomal recessive manner.

Almost all IGD-related genes have also been associated with indeterminate or oligogenic inheritance.

Recurrence risk counseling is based on family history and the results of molecular genetic testing when available. Carrier testing for at-risk relatives in families with X-linked IGD or autosomal recessive IGD is possible if the pathogenic variant s in the family are known.

Prenatal testing for pregnancies at increased risk is possible if the pathogenic variant s in the family are known.

Suggestive Findings Isolated gonadotropin-releasing hormone GnRH deficiency IGD should be suspected in individuals with the following: Absent or partial puberty at presentation in adolescents; low serum testosterone or estradiol on biochemical testing Findings of incomplete sexual maturation on physical examination as determined by Tanner staging see Table 1 : Men with IGD typically have Tanner stage I-II genitalia prepubertal testicular volumes; i.

Women with IGD typically have Tanner stage I breast development and amenorrhea; however, some have spontaneous breast development and occasional menses [ Shaw et al ].

Color Vision Losses in Kallmann Syndrome

In rare males, IGD may present later in adulthood i. However, in these patients, as puberty was not disrupted, sexual maturation is complete and secondary sexual characteristics may be fully developed.The presence of LH pulses was determined by a modification of the method of Santen and Bardin 16 , 17 , as previously described.

Testing of colour vision in prospective printer apprentices and the problem this presents in selection. Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism patients were recruited from our institution's endocrinology department and were selected consecutively for further evaluation.

Taken together, these findings suggest that autosomal genes account for the majority of familial cases of KS, and that unique neuroendocrine phenotypes consistent with some GnRH neuronal migration may exist in these patients. References Bardin, C.

Positive controls created by PCR-directed mutagenesis 16 , 17 were included on each gel to optimize the TGGE gel conditions and check the sensitivity. Therefore, recognizing these ambiguities, the best effort was made to classify families appropriately, with the knowledge that the KAL mutation analysis performed in this study would provide additional clarification.

Finally, kindreds with only affected brothers within a single sibship may represent any of the major modes of genetic inheritance, including dominant, recessive, and X-linked forms for the purposes of this study, these latter kindreds were labeled as indeterminate.
