Evranos Ogmen Berna , Faki Sevgul , Burcak Polat Sefika , Bestepe Nagihan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Thyroid carcinoma is common in young women. Radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy has been confirmed as a useful treatment in the management of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). For women with DTC, the effect of RAI therapy on gonadal and reproductive function is an important consideration. We aimed to evaluate effects of RAI therapy on ovarian function.Method: Women younger than 40 years old and diagnosed with thyroid cancer that required...

Introduction: Parathyroid cancer (PC) is rare accounting for <1% of all presentations. Tumors that demonstrate these atypical features and do not fulfill criteria for carcinoma can be classified as atypical adenomas (APA). Herein we aimed to evaluate the clinical and biochemical features of the patients with an atypical parathyroid adenoma or carcinoma and compare it with benign parathyroid adenomas.Method: Twenty-eight patients who were operated for...

Burcak Polat Sefika , Bestepe Nagihan , Topaloglu Oya , Bal Ercan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Klinefelter syndrome is known as the set of symptoms that result from two or more X chromosomes in males. There is no known association of this syndrome with GH hypersecretion. The most remarkable symptom is gigantism and it can also be observed in androgen deficient states as such as the Klinefelter syndrome and some more genetic syndromes such as the Sotos syndrome, the Marfan syndrome, the homocystinuria, and the fragile X-syndrome. Herein we presente...

ObjectivePrimary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is the most common cause of hypercalcemia. A group of patients who were followed up with a diagnosis of PHPT had normal calcium levels with high parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels. For the diagnosis of normocalcemic PHPT, secondary causes of hyperparathyroidism such as vitamin D deficiency should be excluded. In this study, the data of 318 PHPT patients who were operated were retrospectively analyzed, and biochem...

Upper gastrointestinal symptoms, endoscopic and pathological features, and serum gastrin and chromogranin A levels in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism

Ersoy Osman , Evranos Ogmen Berna , Burcak Polat Sefika , Ozturk Levent , Gumuskaya Ocal Berrak , Cakir Bekir , Ersoy Reyhan

Introduction: Upper gastrointestinal (UGI) symptoms are frequently encountered in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Some of these symptoms may improve after PHPT treatment, while hypercalcemic state may also cause permanent effects. We aimed to evaluate UGI symptoms, UGI endoscopic and pathologic features and determine the relationship between these features with serum chromogranin A (CgA) and gastrin in PHPT patients.Methods: Seventy-one...

Introduction: Incidental thyroid carcinoma (ITC) in patients operated on for a benign disease is frequent. ITC characteristics in patients operated for malign disease, but not sampled by fine needle aspiration (FNA) or seen in ultrasonography, is unknown. We aimed to compare ITC with nonincidental ITC (NITC) in this study.Material and method: Retrospective analyses of 918 individual patients who were operated for benign and malign thyroid disease in our ...

IntroductionExtramedullary plasmacytoma (EMP) is a plasma cell neoplasm of extraosseous tissues. Less than 5% of all plasma cell neoplasms develop extramedullary. EMP is most common in the upper respiratory tract and oral cavity. The thyroid gland is one of the extremely rare regions. It is more common in men and the average age at diagnosis is 55. Primary thyroid plasmacytoma is one of the rare thyroid neoplasms. It often manifests as a rapidly growing ...

ObjectiveRadioactive iodine (RAI) therapy is widely used in both diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant thyroid diseases. It is generally a well tolerated therapy. Bone marrow suppression is often a temporary side effect with a decrease in white blood cells and platelets up to 6–10 weeks. In this study, we aimed to examine hematological changes in patients who received RAI treatment for benign or malignant diseases of the thyroid.<p cla...
