An uncommon but serious hematological manifestation of Grave’s disease: Grave’s disease induced bicytopenia

Yeo Pei Shan

Graves’ disease (GD) is a common cause of hyperthyroidism. Associated hematological complications rarely occur. Most review articles describe it as a rare manifestation and often reported as isolated cases or series. These disorders in hyperthyroidism may stem from the primary thyroid pathology or its treatment. In untreated primary hyperthyroidism, effects on hematological parameters range from mild single lineage involvement to pancytopenia. The most feared treatment re...

Kirac Cem Onur , Abusoglu Sedat , Hataysal Esra Paydas , Kebapcilar Ayse Gul , Ipekci Suleyman , Unlu Ali , Kebapcilar Levent

Macro TSH is a large molecular-sized thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) that is including TSH and anti-TSH antibody. Patients with macro TSH have elevated serum TSH and normal free thyroxine levels similar to subclinical hypothyroidism. A 18-year old female patient was referred from gynecology and obstetrics to endocrinology clinic for evaluating of elevated TSH with normal free thyroxine levels. Laboratory and clinical investigations revealed that only discordant TSH levels (n...

Thyroid hormone resistance and pituitary macroadenoma: is there a connection? – case report

Hrisca Anamaria , Tudurean Olteanu Georgiana , Nechita Mirela , Bilha Stefana , Rotariu Daniel , Leustean Letitia , Preda Cristina , Christina Ungureanu Maria

Introduction: Inappropriate secretion of TSH, despite elevated levels of T4, is due to either a TSH-secreting adenoma (TSHoma) or thyroid hormone resistance (RTH). RTH is a rare disorder, usually caused by mutations in the thyroid hormone receptor beta, characterized by a variable tissue hyporesponsiveness to thyroid hormone. The increased level of TSH may predispose to thyrotroph hyperplasia and possible adenoma formation.Case report: A 21 years old fem...

Pharmacologic interference as a contributory factor for spuriously elevated TSH levels

Gouveia Sofia

Introduction: TRH, thyroid hormones, dopamine, somatostatin and glucocorticoids have a recognized influence on TSH secretion. On the other hand, serotoninergic, histaminergic, catecholaminergic, opioidergic and GABAergic systems establish connections with hypophysiotropic neurons involved in TSH regulation; their relative contribution to TSH secretion is unknown. Still, there are a few reports of H1 receptor antagonists impact on TSH levels.Case report: ...
