Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Daily urinary adrenalin, noradrenaline, dopamine excretion and blood levels of serotonin were measured over the course of the cycle in 8 healthy girls and in 52 patients with the juvenile hypothalamic syndrome in the acute and chronic stages. These parameters were found virtually the same in healthy girls and in those suffering from the hypothalamic syndrome in the course of the cycle or in patients during the acute and chronic stages of the condition. Urinary catecholamine excretion and blood serotonin levels were increased by 1.5-2 times in the acute stage of the syndrome and somewhat reduced in the chronic stage; this appears to be due to reduced activity of the sympathoadrenal system in the course of disease progress.
