Background and aims: It is reported that intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) is important in autoimmune thyroid diseases also it is an important point that ICAM-1 level is high in postoperative hypothyroid cases. In literature, it is said that the level of plasma soluble ICAM-1 can be used as a evidence immune system activation and inflammation, and also it can be used for the diagnosis of some inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The aim of our was to compare the leve...

Ca 19-9 levels in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Sezer Kerem , Ozkaya Mesut , Cakal Erman , Akbay Esen

Introduction: Carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9) is a glycosphingolipid of the Lewis blood group that for years has been proposed as a useful marker for epithelial type gastrointestinal cancers. It is well known that moderately increased concentrations of CA 19-9 can be found in 15–36% of patients with benign conditions such as pancreatic, liver, biliary diseases and benign hydronephrosis. In current study, we aimed to investigate whether there was any tendency CA 19-9 e...

Solitary pulmonary nodule developing ectopic Cushing’s Syndrome over the years: Awakening of a Sleeping Giant

Bostan Hayri , Kizilgul Muhammed , Ozcelik Ozgur , Gul Umran , Taskin Turkmenoglu Tugba , Ozbek Mustafa , Cakal Erman

Background: A rare cause of ectopic Cushing’s Syndrome (ECS) is pulmonary neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN) with a broad spectrum of clinical behavior. At the time of diagnosis, pulmonary NENs may present as occult tumors or well-defined round-to-oval lesions in close relationship to the bronchus. Herein, we describe a NEN that developed ECS three years later in a patient followed up for a solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN).Case Presentation: A 56-year-old...

Somatostatin Analogue Treatment of a Persistant TSH-Secreting Adenoma: a report of case

Unsal İlknur Ozturk , Cakal Erman , Apaydın Mahmut , Karakose Melia , Ucan Bekir , Ozbek Mustafa

Introduction: Thyrotropinomas are usually considered when the TSH level is inappropriately elevated or normal in a hyperthyroid patient with increased serum T4 levels, regardless of the presence of visible tumor on imaging. The prevalence of these adenomas, which account for 0.5–3% of all pituitary tumors has been estimated to be around one case per million. Most thyrotroph adenomas are large and invasive at diagnosis, and present with signs and symptoms of an ...

Is there any relationship between nonfunctional pituitary adenoma and arterial stiffness?

Cagir Yavuz , Altay Mustafa , Cakal Erman , Cagir Busra Betul , Akkan Tolga , Dagdeviren Murat , Beyan Esin

Introduction: In a recent study, it was determined that morbidity rates due to cardiovascular diseases were affected as a result of long-term follow-up in patients with nonfunctional pituitary adenoma. And cardio/cerebro vascular diseases were the most frequent cause of mortality when mortality rates were examined. In the literature, there are not enough studies evaluating this condition in patients with nonfunctional pituitary adenoma without traditional cardiovascular risk f...
