Coexistence of papillary thyroid cancer and sarcoidosis – how many associated complications?

Lazar Diana G , Oros Sabina E , Dobrescu Mariana , Dumitrescu Anda , Dumitru Ioachim , Goldstein Liviu , Ghemigian Mircea

Background: Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) incidence has increased substantially over the last decades. Although 4% of thyroid cancers may induce a sarcoid reaction in the thyroid gland, sarcoidosis (SA) as a disease may exist with PTC, although causality remais uncertain and their coexistence is rarely reported in the literature. They occurs in both genres, between 30–40 years, but females are more predisposed.Case presentation: A 65-year-old man, ...

Introduction: Differentiated thyroid cancer is one of the most common endocrine malignancies. The most common thyroid cancer in adolescence is PTC. It presents with a high rate of loco regional ganglionic metastasis. Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with an incidence, in Europe, estimated around 2.2–2.7 per 100 000 cases per year.

Multiple bilateral lipid-rich adrenal adenomas- how challenging can be a diagnostic process?

Filipowicz Dorota , Cyrańska-Chyrek Ewa , Szczepanek-Parulska Ewelina , Hernik Aleksandra , Klimont Anna , Ruchała Marek

Background: ACTH-Independent Macronodular Adrenal Hyperplasia (AIMAH) is usually manifested as both-sided adrenal incidentalomas with subclinical overproduction of cortisol (<2% of Cushing’s syndrome). The pathogenesis involves genetic factors, expression of adrenal aberrant hormone receptors and paracrine adrenal corticotropin (ACTH) secretion. Treatment is usually bilateral adrenalectomy, but in some cases also unilateral adrenalectomy or pharmacologic therapy can b...

Clinical case of adrenocortical carcinoma: rapid metastatic progression after mitotane discontinuation

Beltsevich Dmitry , Rosyakova Anna , Selivanova Lilia , Tarbaeva Natalia

Background: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignant tumor with a poor prognosis. The only curative therapy is complete surgery (R0). A 5-year local recurrence and distant metastasis rate after R0 is 80–85%. Mitotane is widely used as an adjuvant treatment in patients with a high risk of recurrence. According to the most studies, it can delay and possibly prevent a recurrence of the disease in 35–50%. However, its efficacy is controversial, as well as the o...

The trap of endometriosis treatment in the diagnosis of Cushing’s syndrome: Paradoxical response to Dexamethasone or not?

Vasilescu Sorana L , Oros Sabina E , Dumitraşcu Anda

Background: Cushing’s syndrome is the most common cause of endogenous hypercortisolism that results from the excessive exposure to glucocorticoids. Even though this syndrome is represented by a constellation of clinical signs and symptoms, the most common next features are the truncal obesity and the moon facies, making it hard not to be recognized. It is more common in women (F/M=5-8:1) with an avarage age of 20–40 years.Case Presentation: A 3...
