  • CONCLUSIONS: Initial efforts to understand the complex process of parental decision-making regarding FGRS in the context of CAH, a complex, multifactorial disease, are presented. Parents of infant girls with CAH simultaneously weigh multiple life-threatening concerns with a decision about FGRS. While issues of genital ambiguity and surgery are important, they are not overriding concerns for parents of girls with CAH. Parents report significant uncertainty about appropriate timing and approach to disclosing FGRS to their daughters. Unfortunately, best practice guidelines for this process are lacking. The findings are not based on actual history of disclosure but on parents' anticipated behavior. Further data are need from parents, children, and women with CAH about successful disclosure. Being a single-center series, these data may not correspond to the wider CAH community.Parental decision-making regarding FGRS is multifactorial. Even when considering FGRS, parents' largest concerns remain focused on the life-threatening and developmental effects of CAH and side-effects of its medical treatment. The disclosure process deserves further attention.
  • Diagnostic and surgical challenges of a giant pheochromocytoma in a resource limited setting-A case report. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Giant pheochromocytomas by definition are tumours more than 7 cm in size and are rare. They rarely secrete catecholamines and commonly present with vague abdominal symptoms. A computerized tomogram helps suggest the diagnosis whilst the biochemical workup for pheochromocytoma may be diagnostic. If the tumours are biochemically active, preoperative alpha-blockade is necessary and care must be taken at operation in handling the tumour. The surgical and anaesthetic team must be prepared to manage hypertensive crisis should it occur.This case brings to the attention of clinicians the need to have a high index of suspicion of a giant pheochromocytoma in a patient presenting with vague abdominal symptoms whose CT scan shows a large retroperitoneal tumour, even in the absence of clinical symptoms and negative or absent biochemical workup.
