Correlation Between Anthropometric Characteristics and Endocrine Profile of Girls with Sexual Development Disorders
The correlation between anthropometric characteristics and endocrine profile of girls with a delayed puberty and hypopituitarism was viewed within the scope of investigation. The girls with sexual development disorders had the indexes of main anthropometric parameters (height and weight, chest volume) varying 25–75 centile. The height of the girls suffering from hypopituitarism was below 3 centile. The disharmony conditioned by overweight prevailed among the girls with delayed puberty. Weight deficit was more frequent among the girls with hypopituitarism. A strong connection between the indexes of shoulder width (r = 0,77, р < 0,001), pelvis width (r = 0,81, р < 0,001) and body weight is shown. IGF (rIGF–SW = 0,75, р < 0,001) appeared to be the linking part between these indexes. A strong, almost functional connection between IGF, body weight (r = 0,97, р < 0,001), and pelvis width (r = 0,97, р < 0,001) is exhibited. 80% of the girls with delayed puberty had a pathological type of age evolution characterized by trochanter index values of ≤ 1,85, the other 20% equally displayed disevolutive (trochanter index = 1,86–1,91) and hypoevolutive (trochanter index = 1,92–1,94) types of age evolution. 100% of the girls with hypopituitarism experienced the pathological type of age evolution characterized by trochanter index values of ≤ 1,85. The leg length is in inverse proportion to the concentration of triiodothyronine in blood plasma (r = –0,36, p = 0,089) at the level of a pronounced tendency.
