Introduction: Prolactinomas are frequent in women and between 20 and 40 years but rarely seen in men especially as macroadenoma. Both in microadenomas and macroadenomes unless there is not any indication for an emergent surgery, first line treatment is always medical with dopamine agonists. In this report, we presented a patient with macroprolactinoma that disappears in a short time with dopamine agonist treatment.Case: A 20-year-old boy admitted to endo...

Oguz Ayten , Sahin Murat , Bolat Hanife , Tuzun Dilek , Akgul Omer Faruk , Gul Kamile

Background: X and Y chromosomes carry many genes that direct development and gametogenesis. Rearrangements associated with X chromosome may have a role in abnormal phenotypes. We presented a case of primary amenorrhea with normal karyotype but centromere thickness in 13th chromosome (13 cenh+), this is the first case in literature.Case: A 18-year-old woman admitted to endocrinology clinic with complaints of primary amenorrhea and a failure in ...

Aim: Disabilities of the arm, shoulder, and hand (DASH) questionnaire is a self-administered region-specific outcome instrument developed as a measure of self-rated upper-extremity disability and symptoms. The DASH consists mainly of a 30-item disability/symptom scale. In this study, we aimed to evaluate DASH questionnaire in 1000 type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients.Material and methods: 297 patients (mean age 52.13±9.37 years, 190 women and 10...

Tuzun Dilek , Oguz Ayten , Sahin Murat , Ganidagli Safa Ersen , Atay Didem , Bolat Hanife , Cabioglu Cansu Yilmaz , Celik Ahmet , Gul Kamile

Aim: The intima–media thickness (IMT) measurement of the common carotid artery is recognised as an important marker of systemic atherosclerosis. It may be useful in predicting the cardiovascular events, since it is related to the severity of coronary artery disease. The aims of this study were to analyse whether correlations exist between the IMT of the common carotid artery and the main clinical and biochemical parameters in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP...

Aim: In this study our aim was to investigate the effects of non-functional adrenal incidentalomas to cardio-metabolic risk factors and endothelial function.Materials and methods: Our study involved 30 patients with non-functional adrenal incidentaloma (patient group), and two control groups without adrenal incidentaloma (control group 1 involved 26 patients have DM and/or HT and control group 2 involved 24 healthy control). Metabolic parameters (fasting...
