Prognostic interpretation of four different dynamic biochemical tests of growth hormonal status for acromegaly

Kim Sung-Woon

Acromegaly is an insidious disease that results from excessive growth hormone (GH) secretion from the pituitary tumor. Major advances have occurred in the understanding of some aspects of acromegaly, such as the biology of pituitary tumors, physiology, molecular mechanisms of GH secretion. In a point of GH producing pituitary adenoma, it was located in a pituitary gland, even though macroadenoma. Macroadenoma was bigger than normal pituitary, remnant normal pituitary gland exi...

Contreras Pascual Cristina , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Silva Fernandez Julia , del Val Zaballos Florentino , Garcia-Manzanares Vaquez-de Agredos Alvaro , Javier Gomez Alfonso Francisco , Rosa Gomez Garcia Ines

Introduction: Pituitary adenomas are considered to be benign tumors that are diagnosed by its sympthoms (secondary to compression or hormonal secretion) or incidentally in an imaging technique performed because of another reason. ‘Silent’ somatotrophinomas are very rare. This type of adenoma is typically large and despite it presents with mild or no acromegalic features it usually develops hormone secretion.A case report: A 29-year-old spanish ...

Combination of cushing’s syndrome and acromegaly: a rare case report

Sagova Ivana , Pavai Dusan , Kantarova Daniela , Dragula Milan , Vanuga Anton , Vanuga Peter

Cushing’s syndrome (CS) is a relatively rare disease characterized by autonomous hypersecretion of cortisol. The incidence of CS is estimated to be equal to 2–3 cases per million inhabitants per year.The incidence of acromegaly is 3–4 patients per 1 000000 per year. The disease is caused by hypersecretion of growth hormone which is mainly caused by benign tumour of the pituitary gland. In our case report we present a 41 - year - old woman suffering from both Cus...

Follistatin is negatively associated with growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor 1 in patients with acromegaly

Tseng Fen-Yu

Background: Patients with acromegaly usually presented symptoms of the hypersecretion of growth hormone (GH). GH may increase insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), affect energy homeostasis, and cause complications in cardiovascular, skeletal, or metabolic systems. Follistatin is a glycoprotein with various biologic functions that plays a role in adipocyte differentiation, muscle stimulation, anti-inflammation and energy homeostasis. We evaluated the serum levels of follistati...

Central resistance to thyroid hormone coexisting with autoimmune thyroid disease – case report

Szafraniec-Porada Aneta , Porada Dominik , Lenart-Lipińska Monika , Matyjaszek-Matuszek Beata

Pituitary resistance to thyroid hormone (PRTH) is a rare, genetic cause of hyperthyroidism. It is characterized by a high concentration of free thyroid hormones, coexisting with elevated or normal concentration of thyroid stimulating hormone. The most prevalent features of this syndrome are typical symptoms of hyperthyroidism and goitre. Diagnosis of this condition does not exclude other comorbidities of the thyroid gland, including these of autoimmune origin. We present the c...
