Introduction: Werner’s Syndrome (WS) is a rare autosomal recessive adult onset progeroid disorder characterized by the early onset of aged-appearance and age related metabolic disorders. Patients usually develop normally until the 3rd decades of life.Case report: We report a 27 years old female who admitted to our clinic at the age of 15 with hyperglycemia. She was diagnosed as diabetes and type 4 dyslipidemia at the age of 7 years. In her family hi...

Sahin Mustafa , Aycicek Gozde Sengul , Corapcioglu Demet , Emral Rifat , Gullu Sevim , Erdogan Murat Faik , Gedik Vedia Tonyukuk , Baskal Nilgun , Uysal Ali Riza

Objectives: We aimed to find if there is any relationship between vitamin D levels and clinical, laboratory parameters and osteoporosis, in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT).Material and methods: 128 patients with PHPT and 30 patients as a control group were analysed. Patients with PHPT were grouped due to vitamin D levels and levels low than 20 μg/ml accepted as deficiency.Results: Patients with 25-OH vitamin D <20 &#956...

Sahin Mustafa , aycicek Gozde Sengul , corapcioglu Demet , emral Rifat , gullu Sevim , erdogan Murat Faik , Gedik Vedia Tonyukuk , Baskal Nilgun , Uysal Ali Riza

Objectives: Coexisting thyroid nodules affect the treatment choice for PHPT. We aimed to evaluate the incidence of concomitant thyroid nodules in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and to investigate the relationship between thyroid nodule volume, thyroid gland volume and thyroid nodules with clinical and laboratory parameters.Materials and methods: This study was carried out at Ankara University Endocrinology and Metabolism Department. 183 patien...

Evaluation of whole-body scan, stimulated thyroglobulin after thyroxine withdrawal vs recombinant TSH administration according to the risk groups of tumor recurrence

Sahin Mustafa , Aydogan Berna Imge , Yuksel Bagdagul , Erdogan Murat Faik , Gullu Sevim , Emral Rifat , Corapcioglu Demet , Baskal Nilgun , Uysal Ali Riza

Background: Recombinant human thyroid-stimulating hormone (rhTSH)-stimulated serum thyroglobulin (Tg) (s-Tg) and (131)I whole-body scanning (WBS) are supposed to provide equal diagnostic information with thyroxine withdrawal (THW) at follow-up thyroid cancer patients without the symptoms of hypothyroidism. We aimed to compare the WBS and s-Tg levels after thyrogen injection and thyroid hormone withdrawal for tumor recurrence/persistance according to the risk groups.<p clas...

Results of acromegaly patients treated with surgery and/or somatostatin analog and/or radiotherapy in a University Hospital in Turkey

Demir Ozgur , Tonyukuk Gedik Vedia , Emral Rifat , Faik Erdogan Murat , Gullu Sevim , Corapcioglu Demet , Uysal Ali Riza , Baskal Nilgun , Kamel Nuri

Background: Transsphenoidal adenomectomy is the first choice of therapy, but about 50% of patients are not cured and require medical treatment and/or radiotherapy. We retrospectively analyzed the data on surgery, sandostatin analog therapy, radiotherapy and the combination of them.Materials-methods: The records of the 96 female and 70 male, totally 166 acromegalic patients who had been followed in Ankara University, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases D...

Is there a role of immunohistochemical expression of pituitary hormones and proliferative marker ki-67 on long-term outcome in our acromegalic patients?

Sahin Mustafa , Keskin Caglar , Kiremitci Saba , Erden Esra , Canpolat Asena , Cinel Murat , Canlar Sule , Demir Ozgur , Gullu Sevim , Emral Rifat , Erdogan Murat Faik , Gedik Vedia , Baskal Nilgun , Corapcioglu Demet

Expression of hormones other than GH may affect the prognosis in acromegalic patients. Generally, Ki-67 is a well-known proliferative index used to predict remission in pituitary adenomas. We aimed to evaluate the relationship of immunohistochemical expression pituitary hormones, ki-67 and remission. Also we evaluated the role of pre, post-operative clinical and laboratory values, pathological characteristics on long-term remission. We included 64 acromegaly patients that were...
