We describe a 40-year-old female who presented with fine tremors, weight loss, dyspnea and hemoptysis. On examination she appeared diaphoretic and tachycardic without goiter or thyroid eye disease. Thyroid function tests confirmed biochemical hyperthyroidism: [fT4 >100 pmol/l (NR: 12–22), TSH <0.005 mu/l (NR: 0.270–4.200)]. Chest X-ray showed numerous metastatic pulmonary nodules bilaterally. CT chest confirmed multiple large pulmonary metastases throughout both ...

Simultaneous occurrence of Graves’ disease in a monozygotic twin with type 1 diabetes

Alameri Majid , Alnuaimi Abdulla , Fiad Tarek

Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder of the thyroid gland. Patients with type 1 diabetes (T1DM) are at a higher risk of developing autoimmune diseases including thyroid disorders. To our knowledge, diagnosing Graves’ disease at the same time in a monozygotic twin with T1DM is a rare occurrence. We present a case of monozygotic female twin with T1DM, who both developed Graves’ disease at the same time. Type 1 diabetes was diagnosed in one of the twins (twin ...

Pituitary Hyperplasia secondary to Severe Primary Hypothyroidism

Esdaile Harriet , Alameri Majid , Alnuaimi Abdulla , Martin Niamh , Meeran Karim

Introduction: Thyrotroph pituitary hyperplasia in context of severe primary hypothyroidism is rare and usually occurs due to loss of thyroxine feedback inhibition and overproduction of thyrotropin-releasing hormone, leading to pituitary gland enlargement. Pituitary hyperplasia caused by primary hypothyroidism responds well to thyroid hormone replacement therapy and rarely requires surgical intervention. Case presentation: A 42-year-old female with backgr...

Drug treatment for weight regain after bariatric surgery has been used, but little published data is available on their efficacy. We have investigated the use of Liraglutide for relapse after BS in an Emirati population.Methods: ICLDC patients with a previous history of bariatric surgery...
