Background: In the presence of specific symptoms and signs, Cushing’s syndrome (CS) may be easily recognised. On the other hand, in overweight and obese patients without typical features of CS, diagnosis may be omitted.

Introduction: Endogenous Cushing’s syndrome (CS) results from chronic excessive cortisol secretion. Discovering the source of disease is very important, but non-invasive tests cannot always be enough at the determination of correct location.

We conducted this study for evaluating usefullness of preoperative DHEA-S levels at differentiating AC and CD.Materi...

Imga Narin Nasiroglu , Isik Serhat , Basaran Mehtap Navdar , Dogan Bercem Aycicek , Tuna Mazhar Muslum , Unal Mustafa , Berker Dilek , Guler Serdar

Introduction: Differentiated thyroid cancers (DTC) are the most frequently occuring endocrine malignancies. The factors determine the recurrences and metastases are whole body scanning (WBS) and either suppressed or stimulated thyroglobulin (sTg) levels. The aim of this study to evaluate the preablative factors predict of radioiodine remnant ablation (RRA) therapy success.Patients and methods: One hundred consecutive patients with DTC (94 papillary and s...

Aim: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the characteristic features of computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) among functioning and non-functioning adrenal lesions.Materials and methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients with adrenal mass. CT or MRI findings were available in 89 functioning and 148 non-functioning adrenal lesions (NFAL). Of the patients with functioning adrenal mass, 34 were ...

Introduction: It’s well known that any form of diabetes insipidus (DI) can be exacerbated or first become appearent during pregnancy, since increased catabolism of ADH by plasental vasopressinas enzyme. Postpartum DI cases mostly presenting as a part of Sheean syndrome and began after postpartum first days. There was no any published case of isolated DI that began in the 6th month after deliveration in current literature.Case: A 37...

Amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis, a difficult cases report

Basaran Mehtap Navdar , Imga Narin Nasiroglu , Dogan Bercem Aycicek , Tuna Mazhar Muslum , Karakilic Ersen , Isik Serhat , Tutuncu Yasemin Ates , Berker Dilek , Guler Serdar

Introduction: There are two clinical types of amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT). Type I AIT appears with hyperthyroidism and type II with a destructive thyrotoxicosis. Treatment of type I AIT includes antithyroid drugs meanwhile type II needs steroids as the first line therapy. If there is no respond to medical treatment, surgical approach must be considered. Here in we present a type II AIT case who had no respond to combined therapy therefore treated with surgical appr...
