A 31-year-old man presenting with an 18-month history of sexual dysfunction resulting from severe adult-onset IHH (LH U/L, FSH U/L, T nmol/L). Initial therapy with 50 mg of clomiphene citrate (CC) three times a day for 7 days, with overnight LH pulse profiling and 9 am T levels evaluated at baseline and on completion. A 2-month washout period, followed by low-dose maintenance therapy (25-50 mg/d) for 4 months.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S):Baseline and stimulated T levels and LH pulsatility; effect on sexual function.
RESULT(S):Clomiphene therapy resulted in complete normalization of pulsatile gonadotropin secretion, serum T level, and sexual function. CONCLUSION(S):Isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism may result from an acquired defect of enhanced hypothalamic sensitivity to E-mediated negative feedback. Whereas direct T replacement therapy can further suppress endogenous gonadotropin secretion, treating IHH men with gonadotropins can stimulate endogenous T secretion and enhance fertility potential. On theoretical grounds, reversal of gonadotropin deficiency with CC might be expected to have a similar biological effect.
The 2017 Ford GT is an American legend and certainly one of the most aggressive and smoothest looking muscle cars ever. Most people define it as a sports car, but I like to define it as an American Muscle Car. The 2017 Ford GT really brings out the true colors of America and what the country is about – hard work and muscle! Recently, famous car publisher and appraiser Dave Kinney predicted that the 2006 Ford GT are destined to become the hottest sellers are car auctions because demand for the $150,000 supercar was simply never filled, especially with it remaining so coveted in Europe. Car collectors are being told to keep a sharp eye on the Ford GT as a perennial contender for the most sought-after on the market!
