Twists and turns of diabetology – immune checkpoint inhibitor-mediated diabetes

Majic Tengg Ana , Palaversa Tanja

Introduction: Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have revolutionized oncological treatment and substantially improved a prognosis for patients with advanced malignancy. ICIs inhibit the immunological pathways controlling T-cell activation or anergy. The most frequently used classes of ICIs are those that targeted and inhibit cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4), programmed cell death receptor 1 (PD-1) or its ligand PD-L1. The initiation of ICIs therapy is ofte...

Hyperprolactinemia in a patient with the kidney failure: a rare case of macroprolactinoma and autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease

Majic Tengg Ana , Pandzic Jaksic Vlatka

Introduction: Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is an inherited kidney disease characterized by the development and growth of cysts causing a progressive kidney enlargement and the end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The incidence of brain aneurysms in patients with ADPKD is high thus screening is recommended. The association of pituitary incidentalomas and ADPKD is rarely described in the literature. All reported pituitary adenomas in patients with ADPKD were f...

Graves’ disease and thymic hyperplasia

Majic Ana , Pejic Mirjana Kardum , Pejic Josip

Background: The association between Graves’ disease and thymic hyperplasia is well documented in the literature. Despite that it remains largely unrecognized in routine clinical practice. The lack of familiarity of usually benign nature of thymic hyperplasia associated with Graves’ disease may result in an aggressive management course, along with associated risks.Case presentation: A previously healthy 32-year-old female was admitted to hospita...

Brown tumour of the mandible as the first manifestation of primary hyperparathyroidism: a case report

Majic Ana , Berkovic Maja Cigrovski , Zajc Ivan , Salaric Ivan

Introduction: Brown tumour is a rare, benign, tumour-like lesion of bones.The presence of brown tumour is a rare complication of uncontrolled primary, secondary or tertiary hyperparathyroidism.Brown tumours can be solitary or multifocal and are most commonly located in ribs, clavicles, pelvic girdle, extremities and facial bones (maxilla, mandible, and hard palate).A diagnosis of brown tumour in hyperparathyroidism is established by evaluation of serum calcium, phosphorus and ...

Dilated cardiomyopathy as a rare complication of inadequately treated hyperthyroidism – a case report

Majic Tengg Ana , Pandzic Jaksic Vlatka , Catic Jasmina , novosel tomislav

Introduction: Thyrotoxic cardiomyopathy is a rare but potentially fatal form of dilated cardiomyopathy caused by hyperthyroidism not timely diagnosed or inadequately treated. The first-line treatment is a treatment of the underlying thyroid disease as the structural and functional cardiac alterations are potentially reversible after achieving a euthyroid state.Case presentation: A 41-year-old man was admitted to hospital due to the symptoms of heart fail...

Kljajic Babic Kristina , Majic Milotic Dubravka , Peros Kristijan , Smircic Duvnjak Lea

: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders in women of reproductive age. It’s a heterogeneous functional disorder of unclear etiology. The features of PCOS are disorders of ovulation, androgen excess, polycystic ovaries; it’s associated with presence of associated risk factors for cardiovascular disease (obesity, glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia). The diagnosis of PCOS is made using the Rotterdam 2003 criteria. 23yo female patie...

Peros Kristijan , Milotic Dubravka Majic , Piljac Ante , Stakor Mia Sunjic , Alebic Miro Simun , Zmire Josip

Objective: To analyse the semen quality in patients with newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin lymphoma before starting the treatment.Materials and methods: We evaluated semen quality in 29 patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma who underwent sperm banking in our clinic over a 9-year period. Semen samples were collected by masturbation after 2–7 days of sexual abstinence. Age at banking, semen volume, sperm concentration, and total and progressive sperm motility ...

Clinical features and management of primary hyperparathyroidism discovered by parathyroid incidentaloma

Pandzic Jaksic Vlatka , Majic Ana , Andric Jelena , Cigrovski Berkovic Maja , Marusic Srecko

Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is nowadays usually diagnosed as an asymptomatic disease but it might be related with advanced end-organ damage. Parathyroid incidentaloma (PI) is the term describing enlarged parathyroid nodules that are unexpectedly discovered on surgery or by imaging performed for nonparathyroid disorders. The recognition of PI might uncover a clinically significant PHPT with the potential for surgical cure. We retrospectively reviewed patients’ reco...

When to expect a positive parathyroid hormone washout in primary hyperparathyroidism – a single center experience

Mustapic Mirna , Andric Jelena , Majic Ana , Jaksic Ozana , Derek Lovorka , Veić Tajana Stoos , Jaksic Vlatka Pandzic

Parathyroid localization by fine needle aspiration and parathyroid hormone (PTH) washout measurement is not a widely accepted method because of possible alterations in parathyroid histology. However, when performed with technical competence this easily available method has been praised to be an immediate confirmation of enlarged parathyroid glands found on ultrasound. We retrospectively reviewed primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) patients with previously performed PTH washout ...

Peros Kristijan , Milotic Dubravka Majic , Bozek Tomislav , Stakor Mia Sunjic , Babic Kristina Kljajic , Dobrota Vesna Dermanovic , Magas Sasa

Objective: To analyse the semen quality in patients with newly diagnosed lymphoma’s before starting the treatment.Materials and methods: We evaluated semen quality in 131 patient with lymphoma who underwent sperm banking in our clinic over a 14-year period. 102 patients had Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and 29 had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Semen samples were collected by masturbation after 2–7 days of sexual abstinence. Age at banking, semen volu...
