INTRODUCTION: Prevalence of metabolic syndrome increases drastically during menopausal transition. Chronic inflammation is proposed as the basic pathophysiology of metabolic syndrome (MetS). AIM OF THE STUDY: To compare mean white blood cell count between perimenopausal and postmenopausal women with and without MetS and find the prevalence of MetS in this patient group. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 140 healthy perimenopausal and postmenopausal women were interviewed and underwent anthropometric measurements, biochemical investigations for MetS and hematologic parameters...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the first case of premature ovarian failure with a reciprocal translocation between chromosomes 1 and 4 and to review all the related literature. METHODS: A 39-year-old multigravida woman with secondary amenorrhea consulted for evaluation. High-resolution chromosomal evaluation, sonographic images of the reproductive organs and assessment of endogenous hormone production were performed. RESULTS: We identified a de novo balanced translocation 46,XX, t(1;4)(p34...
