An excess amount of androgens in women is manifested by symptoms of defeminization and masculinization. Hormonally active adrenal and ovarian tumors and non-tumor causes must be considered in the differential diagnosis.

The polyglandular autoimmune syndromes (PAS) are rare disorders characterized as multiple autoimmune-mediated organ failure. PAS III includes chronic autoimmune thyroiditis with type 1 diabetes mellitus or pernicious anemia and/or vitiligo or alopecia and many other organ-specific autoimmune diseases, but never involves adrenal cortex. Several patients with PAS III and associated type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumor (NET) have already been reported. We report probably the first...

Insulinoma- from diagnosis to full recovery. Case study

Lewicki Marcin , Urbanczuk Magdalena , Zwolak Agnieszka , Dudzinska Marta , Lenart-Lipinska Monika , Tarach Jerzy S.

Introduction: Insulinoma is a rare form of a functional neuroendocrine tumor with an estimated incidence at 1–2 new cases per million persons per year. This infrequent endocrinopathy, frequently escaping standard disease course, constitutes a diagnostic challenge for every endocrinologist. Successful surgical resection of the lesion is the only available method that ensures patient’s full recovery.Case study: 53 years old patient with complaint...

The patient recalled recurrent symptoms of diaphoresis, tremors and palpitations, sometimes with loss of co...
