Introduction: Feochromositoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor derived from chrommaffin cells of adrenal medulla. The most characteristic clinical symptoms are headache, perspiration, palpitation, and paroxysismal hypertension. Childhood feochromositoma is generally genetic while it is mostly sporadic in adults. Here we report three feochromositoma cases in whom two had von Hippel Lindau syndrome (VHLs).Case 1: 10 years old girl with admitted with fever. H...

Piskinpasa Hamide , Dogansen Sema Ciftci , Cakır Ilkay , Akdeniz Yasemin Sefika , Esen Ayse , Bozkur Evin , Mert Meral

Introduction: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to 11 beta-hydroxylase deficiency (11βOHD) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder. It results defects in adrenal cortisol and aldosterone synthesis. Early diagnosis and initiation of treatment in male patients are essential in order to prevent serious complications. We report a male patient with CAH who developed complications because of late diagnosisCase Report: 44-year-old male patien...

Post-transplant dyslipidemia in two cases

Ince Nurcan , Durmus Bugra , Ozcelik Ozgur , Dirikoc Ahmet , Cevdet Aydın , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Bekir Cakır

IntroductionLung transplantation was associated with a 32% prevalence of hypercholesterolemia and a 41% prevalence of hypertriglyceridemia. The prevalence of dyslipidemia in liver transplant recipients is 43% and 31% –51%. In this report, we present 2 cases who developed dyslipidemia after transplantation.Case 1The blood test of a 73-year-old male patient who had lung transplantation about 3 years ago re...

Two thyrotropin secreting pituitary adenoma cases diagnosed after response to the somatostatin analogue

Karahmetli Gulsum , Houssein Mehdi , Belma Ozlem Tural Balsak , Ogmen Berna , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Bekir Cakır

IntroductionPituitary adenomas secreting TSH (TSHoma) are a rare cause of hyperthyroidism. They account for approximately 0.5–3 % of functioning pituitary tumours and much less than 1% of all cases of hyperthyroidism. TSHoma should be considered in all hyperthyroid patients, especially those with diffuse goitre and no extrathyroidal signs of Graves’ disease.Case 1A 30-year-old female applied to the ...

Insulin-Like Growth Factor-I might be a predictor for severe nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in morbidly obese patients

Turgut Seda , Acarer Bugun Didem , Seyit Hakan , Pamuk Naim , Pişkinpaşa Hamide , Bozkur Evin , Karabulut Mehmet , Cakır İlkay

Aim: To compare the IGF-1, metabolic and clinical parameters among the ultrasonographically classified NAFLD groups, to examine the effect of weight loss on metabolic parameters and determine the factors that may predict the NAFLD severity in morbidly obese patients who underwent bariatric surgery.Method: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in 316 morbidly obese patients (250 females, 66 males). The data of patients before and 1st year a...

Weight loss induced by bariatric surgery may improve systemic inflammation: Preliminary results

Pamuk Naim , Turgut Seda , Seyit Hakan , Acarer Bugun Didem , Pişkinpaşa Hamide , Bozkur Evin , Karabulut Mehmet , Cakır İlkay

Background: Obesity is a widespread disease that causes chronic low-grade inflammation and related chronic diseases such as steatohepatitis, metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus (DM), and cancer. It is known that weight loss positively affects life expectancy by reducing obesity-related complications. Therefore, effective management of particularly morbidly obese patients is getting prominent in clinical practice. Bariatric surgery (BS) is the main effective treatment option ...

Akdoğan Leyla , Polat Şefika Burc ak , Uğurlu Nagihan , Dirikoc Ahmet , Ozdemir Didem , Topaloğlu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakır Bekir

Introduction: The prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) continues to increase worldwide. Diabetic retinopathy (DRP) is one of the most common complications of Type 2 DM. Recently, the effect of thyroid hormones on diabetic microvascular complications has gained much attention. This relationship is explained by the important effects of thyroid hormones on endothelial function. There are studies investigating the relationship between TSH and diabetic nephropathy and DRP.

Dirikoc Ahmet , Ali Tam Abbas , Ince Nurcan , Ozdemir Didem , Topaloglu Oya , Alkan Afra , Aylin Kılıcyazgan , Ersoy Reyhan , Bekir Cakır

Background We aimed to determine clinicopathological features that can predict lymph node metastasis (LNM) in papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMC).MethodsMedical records of 872 patients with papillary thyroid cancer >1 cm (PTC >1 cm) and 1184 patients with papillary thyroid microcancer (PTMC) (£1 cm) were reviewed retrospectively. Demographical, clinical and histopathological features of (PTC >1 cm) ...

IntroductionWhile cervical lymph nodes are the region where head and neck malignancies frequently metastasize, prostate carcinoma rarely metastasizes to this area. Here, we will present a case with papillary thyroid microcarcinoma whose pathological lymph node cytology in the cervical region was found to be prostate carcinoma metastasis.Case <capti...
