Pseudohypoparathyroidism as an etiological cause for epilepsy: a case report

Gokkaya Naile , Bilen Arzu , Bilen Habib

Introduction: Pseudohypoparathroidism (PHP) is a condition mimics hypoparathyroidism biochemically with a hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia but differentiates from it an elevated parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels. PHP characterized by targeted organ unresponsiveness to PTH and mainly subdivided two groups. PHP type 1a an autosomal dominant disease related to mutations of GNAS1. This subtype has biochemical findings and characteristic somatic phenotype known as Albright Heredit...

Introduction: Berardinelli Seip Congenital Lypodystrophy (BSCL) is a rare otosomal recessive disease characterized by major criteria which are lypoatrophy, acromegaloid features, hepatomegaly, hypertriglyceridemia, insulin resistance and minor citeria which are hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, psycomotor retardation, hirsutism, precocious puberty, long bone cysts, phlebomegaly. The presence of three major criteria or two major plus two minor criteria required for diagnosis of BSCL...

A giant lung metastasis of thyroid papillary carcinoma

Karadeniz Yusuf , Gungor Adem , Gokkaya Naile , Bilen Arzu , Bilen Habib

Introduction: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) patients with distant metastasis (DM) have variable clinical forms. PTC mostly metastasizes to the regional cervical lymph node. Metastasis rate is approximately 20–90% available when diagnosed. In addition, the overall incidence of DM is approximately 10%. DM are usually to the lungs, bone and brain. Furthermore rarely liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, adrenal gland, ovaries, sphenoid sinuses and submandibular gland metasta...

Primary hyperparathyroidism in pregnancy: a case series

Gokkaya Naile , Gungor Adem , Bilen Arzu , Bilen Habib

Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) in pregnancy is very rare condition and the true incidence of PHP in pregnancy is not well known. PHP is associated with significant maternal and foetal morbidity and mortality. PHP is diagnosed based upon levels of blood calcium and parathyroid hormone (PTH) in normal renal function status. However diagnosis of PTH can be difficult, the physiological changes of pregnancy in calcium homeostasis such as maternal blood volume expan...

Miliary tuberculosis mimicking papillary thyroid cancer metastasis

Gungor Adem , Gokkaya Naile , Bilen Arzu , Bilen Habib

Introduction: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most frequently occurring subtype of thyroid differentiated cancers. PTC frequently metastasizes to the cervical lymph node region and metastasis rate of approximately 20–90% is available when diagnosed. Distant metastasis are usually the lungs, bone and brain metastases. Furthermore rarely the adrenal gland, skeletal muscle, ovaries, submandibular gland, sphenoid sinuses, liver and pancreatic metastases can be occurr...

Tumor induced osteomalacia caused by haemangioma of the acetabular surface

Bilen Habib , Akcay Gungor , Polat Pinar , Akcay Mufide , Yildirim Omer

Objective: Tumor induced osteomalacia (TIO) belongs to the group of hypophosphatemic osteomalacias and is induced by a tumor. It is not common disease.Case report: We describe a 34-year-old caucasian man who presented with a 5 year history of diffuse bone pain and muscle weakness. Laboratory investigations showed normal calcium level, low phosphate level between 1.01 mg/dl, and 1.6 mg/dl (reference range: 2.6–5.5 mg/dl), raised alkaline phosphatase ...

Purpose: To evaluate the relationship between basal dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate (DHEA-S) levels and other tests used in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of Cushing’s Syndrome (CS) among the patients with pathologically confirmed CS.Methods: In this multicenter study, the data of 623 patients with CS were evaluated retrospectively. The patients were classified as Group 1 (n = 353 Cushing’s disease;CD), Group 2 (n</e...
