Introduction: 46 XX male syndrome generally presented as hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism.Case report: A 39-year-old man was referred to our clinic with a pituitary mass. He had a history of pituitary adenoma of 45×28×40 mm size which was found after his admission with right-sided vision loss at 2006.

Altay Mustafa , Colbay Mehmet , Toruner Fusun Balos , Akturk Mujde , Sancar Erkam , Cakir Nuri , Arslan Metin

Introduction: Werner syndrome (WS) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by premature aging, skin changes, gray hair, alopecia, muscle atrophy, osteoporosis, and cataracts and has a high frequency of association with rare neoplasms. In addition, some endocrinological abnormalities were manifested in this rare disease, such as hypogonadism, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia. Atrophic changes of organs and systems such as skin, brain and genital organs were reported. H...

Vitamin D levels are associated with serum TSH levels but not with thyroid autoantibodies

Colbay Mehmet , Altay Mustafa , Akturk Mujde , Cakir Nuri , Yetkin Ilhan , Arslan Metin

Introduction: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) is common autoimmune thyroid disorder and is predominantly the clinical expression of cell-mediated immunity leading to destruction of thyroid cells. Vitamin D plays a role in the regulation of immunity and cell proliferation. So, do the serum levels of vitamin D reduced in HT?Methods: We examined the medical records of the ‘Thyroid policlinic’ patients with or without HT. Vitamin D, thyroid autoa...

Synchronous thyroid and gastric diffuse large B cell lymphoma

Altay Mustafa , Balos Toruner Fusun , Karakaya Fatih , Cakir Nuri , Arslan Metin

Introduction: Thyroid lymphoma is a rare disease. Furthermore, coincidence of extrathyroidal lymphoma is very rare.Case: A 69 years-old woman patient was admitted to the hospital with dyspnea, hoarse voice and swelling of throat for a month. In her history, she had been diagnosed as gastric lymphoma 6 years ago, while she was being investigated for upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Six cures of chemotherapy has been applied. She was not on follow up. In p...

Sutcuoglu Osman , Bolayir Basak , Yalcin Muhittin , Satis Hasan , Altinova Alev , Akturk Mujde , Balos Toruner Fusun , Cakir Nuri

Metastatic infiltration of the adrenal glands is a common finding of malignancies, but few case reports showed primary adrenal insufficiency being the presenting manifestation of underlying malignant tumors. Here, we report a case of adrenal insufficiency secondary to metastases from lung adenocarcinoma.A 69-year-old man was admitted to emergency department with weakness, altered mental status, hypotension, fever and weight loss. He had 100 pack-year his...

A case of idiopathic granulomatous hypopysitis that was initially treated as a prolactinoma

Arslan Ismail Emre , Yalcin Mehmet Muhittin , Cakir Nuri , Altinova Alev Eroglu , Yetkin Ilhan , Akturk Mujde , Toruner Fusun Balos , Arslan Metin

Idiopathic granulomatous hypophysitis is a very rare inflammatory disease of the pituitary gland. Primary hypophysitis represents a difficult diagnostic challenge because it can imitate pituitary adenomas clinically and radiologically. The diagnosis is usually made histologically by hypophysectomy. We herein present a rare case of idiopathic granulomatous hypopysitis diagnosed primarily by pituitary biopsy.Case: A 50-year-old female patient presented wit...

Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), soluble lectin-like oxidized ldl receptor 1 (SLOX-1) and ankle brachial index in short term overt hypothyroidism

Ozkan Cigdem , Akturk Mujde , Altinova Alev Eroglu , Cerit Ethem Turgay , Gulbahar Ozlem , Yalcin Mehmet Muhittin , Cakir Nuri , Toruner Fusun Balos

Cardiovascular deleterious effects of short term hypothyroidism are not well known. We aimed to investigate proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), soluble lectin-like oxidized LDL receptor 1 (sLOX-1) and ankle brachial index (ABI) in patients with thyroid cancer with short term overt hypothyroidism due to thyroid hormone withdrawal (THW). Twenty-one patients who require radioactive iodine (RAI) ablation or RAI scan and thirty-six age, sex, BMI similar euthyroid...

Serum total sialic acid levels in overt and subclinical hypothyroid patients and its relationship with atherosclerotic risk factors

Altay Mustafa , Karakoc Mehmet Ayhan , Cakir Nuri , Cerit Etem Turgay , Akturk Mujde , Demirtas Canan Yilmaz , Bukan Neslihan , Arslan Metin

Objective: Serum total sialic acid(SA) concentration is assessed as an up to date risk indicator of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases.Methods: It was aimed to investigate about how SA levels are effected in overt or subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) and how it’s associated with other atherosclerosis risk factors because there is no study about these topics, though SA is intensively studied in recent years.Patients: Six...

Introduction: Infliximab is a tumour necrosis factor (TNF) α inhibitor and used for the treatment of psoriasis. Herein, we report a case of destructive thyroiditis accompanied by transient thyrotoxicosis resulting from the infliximab therapy for the treatment of psoriasis.Case report: A 57-year-old man suffered from psoriasis and was treated with infliximab therapy for 4 years. Thyroid function tests were normal before infliximab therapy. When the p...

Yilmaz Banu Aktas , Kan Erdal , Toruner Fusun Balos , Karakoc Ayhan , Benekli Mustafa , Cakir Nuri , Buyukberber Suleyman , Arslan Metin

Thyroid lymphomas are very rare diseases of the thyroid.We present three patients with thyroid lymphoma administered our department last year. Two of the patients presented with rapidly enlarging neck mass with pressure symptoms, and the other was diagnosed during the evaluation of a thyroid nodule. Two patients had the Hashimoto’s thyroiditis diagnosis. All the patients underwent surgery, since no exact diagnosis could be established with fine feed...
