Role of computed tomography scan in adrenal tumors

Boudiaf Dia Eddine , Azzoug Said , Chentli Farida

Introduction: Computed tomography (CT) scan is the first imaging method used to characterize adrenal lesions in order to select patients for surgical treatment. Our aim was to specify the performance of this tool in the work up of adrenal masses (AM) recruited in a department of Endocrinology.Material and methods: This retrospective study included 100 patients hospitalized in our department between 2008 and 2014 for adrenal tumors. After a systematic exc...

Psychiatric troubles revealing isolated primary hypoaldostronism

Dia Eddine Boudiaf , Said Azzoug , Farida Chentli

Introduction: Hyponatremia’s etiological diagnosis remains a challenge in the real life. Our aim was to report a patient who was sent for severe behavioral disorders revealing hyponatremia due to an isolated deficit in aldosterone. This observation emphasizes the extreme rarity of the disease which deserves to be reported.Case report: A young patient aged 34 with a history of autoimmune thyroiditis consulted for an acute and severe psychiatric syndr...

Familial 46, XY gonadal dysgenesis

Yaker Fetta Amel , Azzoug Said , Chentli Farida

46, XY disorders of sex development are rare diseases secondary to gonadal dysgenesis (GD) and disorders of androgens synthesis or action. Familial forms of GD are very rare; we report here the observations of two siblings with 46, XY GD.The first patient whose parents were relatives, raised as a girl consulted at 3 years for ambiguous genitalia, at clinical exam we found a small phallus, partial fusion of labio-scrotal folds with one orifice at the phal...

Erdheim Chester disease (ECD) is a non langheransian rare histiocytosis, with around 500 cases described worldwide since its discovery for the first time in 1930 by Jakob Erdheim et William Chester. It is a multivisceral disease, characterized by a proliferation of abnormal histocytes CD68 positive and CD1a negative, including a retroperitoneal and perirenal fibrosis, a peri-aortitis, an osteosclerosis of the lower limbs and sometime an exophthalmia or an diabetes insipidus. H...

Our aim is to study its annual frequency during a long period of time, and to analyze its different aetiologies in an Endocrine Department.Methods: All patients referred for primary amenorrhea between 1980 and 2012 were studied. We took in account personal and family history, clinical examination, hormonal, cytogenetic and immunological assessments, and r...

Kabour Saida , Azzoug Said , Chentli Farida

Introduction: In medical practice ambiguous genitalia is a relatively are condition. The combination of two causes in genital malformation is exceptional. Our aim is to describe a person having an abnormal karyotype with a chimerism (46,XY/46,XX) and a deficit in 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 3 (17β-HSD): an enzyme in the testes that transforms D4 Androstenedione to testosterone and androstenedione to dihydro testosterone or DHT.Case report:...

The protective role of Zingiber officinale extract against methyl thiophanate induced toxicity in male rats

Mosbah Rachid , Bahri Malika , Azzoug Said , Djerrou Zouhir , Mantovani Alberto

In this study, we attempted to assess the toxicity of Methyl Thiophanate (MT) on the biochemical and reproductive parameters in male Wistar rats as well as the possible protective role of Zingiber officinale (Ginger, Ging) extract against MT-induced toxicity. Hence, forty adult Wistar rats were allocated into four groups of 10 rats for each; the first group served as control, groups 2, 3 and 4 were treated orally (5/week) for 8 weeks by MT (150 mg/kg bw), Ging (100 mg...
