Endoscopic ultrasound-guided ethanol ablation therapy for pancreatic insulinoma: an unusual strategy

Lages Adriana de Sousa , Oliveira Patricia , Paiva Isabel , Portela Francisco , Guelho Daniela , Cardoso Luis , Vicente Nuno , Oliveira Diana , Martins Diana , Ventura Mara , Carrilho Francisco

Introduction: Insulinomas are the most frequent cause of endogenous hypoglycaemia. 90 to 95% of these are benign. Surgical enucleation or resection is the standard treatment. Medical therapy focuses mainly on the use of diazoxide with few alternatives in patients with high surgical risk.Case-report: Female patient, 89 years-old, non-diabetic, with previous history of acute myocardial infarction, stroke with motor sequelae, pacemaker carrier and severe ao...

An unusual presentation of an ovarian teratoma

Hill Natalie , Lakshmipathy Kavitha , Clark James , Field Benjamin , Zachariah Sunil

Introduction: Hormone-secreting teratomas are well described. However teratomas secreting pancreatic hormones are rare, with even fewer cases producing clinically significant effects. We describe possibly the first documented case of hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia due to an insulin-secreting ovarian teratoma.Case report: A 23-year-old woman presented with transient symptoms of lethargy and weakness. She had used her father’s capillary glucose meter...

Turner syndrome and liver involvement: is there a place for treatment with ursodeoxycholic acid?

Calanchini Matilde , Moolla Ahmad , Cobbold Jeremy , Tomlinson Jeremy W , Fabbri Andrea , Grossman Ashley , Turner Helen

Introduction: Abnormalities in liver biochemistry are frequent in Turner’s syndrome (TS) with a reported prevalence between 20 and 80%. While their aetiology remains unclear, metabolic factors and intrahepatic biliary disease have been postulated. Moreover, some TS patients have a predominantly cholestatic biochemical abnormality and others a hepatitic picture. Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) has been shown to be a useful treatment of cholestatic disease.<p class="abstext...

Clinical case: We report the case of a 40-year-old woman, diagnosed with sporadic medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) treated with total thyroidectomy, cervical lymph node dissection and chemotherapy. During follow-up, cervical lymph node, lung, breast, bone and subcentimeter cerebellous affectation was observed.
