Introduction and aims: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a frequent endocrinopathy among with young women. It is known that insulin resistance is encountered in the vast majority of the women with PCOS and hence the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease are increased.

Carliuglu Ayse , Timur Ozge , Durmaz Senay Arikan , Ayhan Mehmet Emin

Aim: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) is an autoimmune disease in which a breakdown of immune tolerance is caused by interplay of a variety of immunologic, genetic, and environmental factors. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is the measure of platelet size. MPV possibly is a simple way to estimate platelet activity. Activated platelets play an important role in the pathogenesis of vascular disease especially coronary heart diseases. Larger platelets are metabolically and enzymatica...

Ozturk Yasin , Arikan Senay , Kibar Yunus Ilyas , Tay Ahmet , Ayhan Mehmet Emin

Lingual thyroid is an abnormal formation appearing as the result of a deficient descent during embryological development of the thyroid gland through the thyroglossal duct to its normal pretracheal location, and it is a rare embryological aberration. A 19 years old woman was admitted to with foreign-body-feeling, dysphonia, hoarseness, constipation. Examination showed a spherical, red fleshy and smooth contoured mass rat back of the tongue.
