Hypomagnesemia induced disturbance of consciousness in alcoholic cirrhosis

Muzurovic Emir , Boskovic Olivera

Introduction: Serum calcium (Ca) is a major regulator of PTH secretion, but serum magnesium (Mg)also can modulate PTH secretion. Intracellular Mg depletion impairs the ability of the parathyroid to secrete PTH,which subsequently cause fall in the serum Ca concentration.Case report: A 67 year old male patient was admitted to intensive care unit because of disturbance of consciousness, due to suspected hepatic encephalopathy. In his previous history, he ha...

‘Killing two birds with one stone’ treating porphyria patient with diabetes with SGLT2 inhibitors - a case report

Bogojevic Milan , Boskovic Olivera

Background: Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is characterized by attacks of abdominal pain and neuropsychiatric symptoms. This disease is more frequently and more severely affecting women. Hem deficiency in the liver of AIP patients stimulates an increase in ALA-synthase which triggers an escalating metabolic chain reaction, leading to an increase in the porphyrin content. Treatment of AIP is carbohydrate-rich diet and by treating the attacks with intravenous infusions of gl...

Cushing’s disease management through time- a case report

Borozan Sanja , Boskovic Olivera

Cushing’s disease (CD) is a rare disorder caused by an increased secretion of adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) from the anterior pituitary gland, usually as a result of pituitary adenoma. Transsphenoidal tumour resection is the best first line therapy option for these patients but 10–30% of them fail to achieve remission and need further treatment modalities to eliminate hypercortisolemia. Long-term outcomes and possible impacts on quality of life in these patients...

Patient with post-surgical hypoparathyreoidism and long QT interval

Kovacevic Zlata , Boskovic Olivera

Post-surgical hypoparathyroidism is most common cause of hypoparathyroidism develops after accidental damage to or removal of the parathyroid glands during surgery. Heart arrhythmias and fainting, even heart failure is reversible complications of hypoparathyroidism, due to low calcium levels. Long QT (LQT) interval may lead to syncope, cardiac arrest, or sudden death. The goal of hypoparathyrodisms treatment is to relieve symptoms and to normalize levels of calcium and phospho...

Supraselar tumor as cause of amaurosis – the unusual suspects-case series

Boskovic Olivera , Bulajic Predrag , Bogojevic Milan

Background: Most common tumors in the suprasellar region are adenomas of the pituitary gland, craniopharyngiomas, cystic lesions (Rathke’s cleft cysts). Supraselar meningiomas are rare and slow-growing tumors that usually arise from the tuberculum sellae or the chiasmatic sulcus. These tumors frequently invade the sella turcica because that they are mistaken for a pituitary tumor.Methods: A case seriesResults: We present a two...

Malabsorption of levothyroxine sodium tablet in a patient with neuroendocrine gastric tumor, follow-up

Boskovic Olivera , Smolovic Brigita , Lazovic Ranko

Multiple dose adjustments can sometimes be inefficient in reaching eumetabolic state in patients with hypothyroidism treated by levothyroxine sodium tablets.We report a case of 46-year-old female who has been on levothyroxine sodium tablet replacement therapy since 2004 without ever reaching eumetabolic state. As sellar MRI ruled out pituitary adenoma, investigation perform absorption test with 300 mg levothyroxine and test was positive in aspect of pres...

Pheochromocytoma in young patient-challenges in clinical practice

Boskovic Olivera , Kovacevic Zlata , Bogojevic Milan

A pheochromocytoma is a rare, catecholamine-secreting tumor that may precipitate life-threatening hypertension. The tumor is malignant in 10% of cases. Although pheochromocytoma has classically been associated with von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome, multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN 2), and neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) there are now 10 genes that have been identified as sites of mutations leading to pheochromocytoma.Method and materials A case re...

The role of lipids in prediction of gestational diabetes mellitus

Muzurovic Emir , Boskovic Olivera , Vujosevic Snezana

GDM is more likely for women who are overweight, women with family members who have type 2 diabetes and women who are American Indian.
