Polat Burcak , Evranos Berna , Aydin Cevdet , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Pregnancy or lactation related osteoporosis (PLO) is very rare. It usually occurs in the third trimester or in the early post partum period and manifestations are severe back pain and loss of height due to vertebral fractures. Its etiology is not well understood. Classical treatment is cessation of lactation, calcium and Vit-D supplementation and biphosphanates in chosen cases. All osteoporosis drugs are approved mainly for post-menouposal osteoporosis a...

The Relationship Between Autonomic Cortisol Secretion and Metabolic Diseases in Cases with Adrenal Incidentaloma

Turan Erdogan Beril , Evranos Ogmen Berna , Sacikara Muhammed , Aydin Cevdet , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Backgorund: Adrenal incidentalomas (AI) are lesions discovered incidentally on imaging without clinical symptoms or examination findings. AI can produce hormones in 5-30% of cases. Autonomic cortisol secretion (ACS) is the most common of these. Although ACS is asymptomatic, it increases the risk of metabolic disorders.Methods: Patients aged ≥18 years with adrenal adenoma and upper abdominal MRI who presented and were examined in the endocrinology o...

Discordance in biochemistry and ultrasonography: Nonsecretory parathyroid adenoma

Dilek Dellal Fatma , Aydin Cevdet , Kilinc Ibrahim , Kilicarslan Aydan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: Although nonsecretory parathyroid carcinoma is relatively more frequent, nonsecretory parathyroid adenoma was also reported. It is thought to precede functioning parathyroid adenoma.Case report: An iso-hypoechoic 6.5×9.5×16.1 mm thyroid nodule with irregular borders in the superior-posterior part of right thyroid lobe was observed in ultrasonography in a 44-year-old female euthyroid patient. Fine-needle aspiration (FNAB) biopsy resulted wi...

Resistant microprolactinoma with partial empty sella

Faki Sevgul , Polat Sefika Burcak , Aydin Cevdet , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Prolactinomas are the most common hormonally active pituitary tumors that account for 40–60% of all pituitary adenomas and are usually successfully treated with dopamine agonists. Surgery or radiotherapy is reserved for drug intolerance/resistance or in neuro-ophthalmological emergencies. We present a patient with refractory microprolactinoma with empty sella treated by transsphenoidal surgery.Case: 42-year-old female patient admitted ...

Prolonged iodine excess due to hysterosalpingography in a pregnant woman

Ali Tam Abbas , Faki Sevgul , Ozdemir Didem , Aydin Cevdet , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Hysterosalphingography (HSG) is the radiographic examination of uterine cavity and fallopian tubes. It is generally used during evaluation of infertility and radioopaque contrast is injected through cervical duct during the procedure. Lipiodol which is the most commonly used contrast media in HSG is a fatsoluble iodinated contrast media. This iodine is progressively cleared from the body in a period ranging from a few weeks to a few months. Here, we present a 6 w...

Fluctuating thyroid hormones in Graves disease: a case series of brittle Graves

Cuneyt Bilginer Muhammet , Faki Sevgul , Aydin Cevdet , Ozdemir Didem , Ali Tam Abbas , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Brittle hypertyroidism is a term used for the clinical situation characterized by hypo-hyperthyroidism with antithyroid drugs, despite good compliance and follow-up. Here, we presented five patients suggested to have Brittle Graves.Case-1: Thyrotoxicosis was observed in a 57-year-old female patient and Graves was diagnosed after laboratory and imaging examinations 25 months after initiation of propylthiouracil 50 mg/day, she developed hypot...

Differentiated thyroid cancer in patients taking lithium for bipolar affective disorder: a case series

Ali Tam Abbas , Aydin Cevdet , Ozdemir Didem , Bilginer Muhammed Cuneyt , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: Lithium bicarbonate is a drug used in the initial treatment of bipolar disorders. Lithium is an element of alcali metal group and besides being a causative agent for goiter and hypothyroidism primarily, it has also some antithyroid effects. Rarely, lithium may cause hyperthyroidism secondary to thyroiditis or probably autoimmune mechanisms. The association between lithium and thyroid cancer is very little known subject. In this case series, we presented differentiated thy...

Evaluation of preoperative ultrasonographic and biochemical features of patients with aggressive parathyroid disease: Is there any reliable predictive marker?

Cakir Bekir , Burcak Polat Sefika , Kilic Mehmet , Ozdemir Didem , Aydin Cevdet , Sungu Nuran , Ersoy Reyhan

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...

Bilateral large adrenal lesions in a patient with undertreated congenital adrenal hyperplasia

Bilginer Muhammet Cuneyt , Ozdemir Didem , Aydin Cevdet , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of autosomal recessive diseases characterized by enzyme deficiencies in cortisol secretion. The most common form is 21-alpha hydroxylase deficiency. Here, we report a patient with undertreated CAH and bilateral large adrenal masses.Case report: 34 years old male patient diagnosed with CAH and testicular anorchia at the age of 7 admitted to our clinic for general weakness. Hydrocortisone treatm...

Case report: endoscopic ultrasonography can be used as an adjunctive procedure in atypically localized and conventional ultrasound negative parathyroid adenoma

Cuhaci Neslihan , Aydin Cevdet , Ersoy Osman , Yazgan Aylin Kilic , Kilinc Ibrahim , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Ectopic and atypically localized parathyroid adenomas such as in the anterior mediastinum, paraesophageal or retrotracheal position, although rare, can be seen in clinical practice. Ultrasound (US) which is a frequently used and one of the best conventional imaging modality sometimes fails to identify the lesion especially in atypically localized adenomas. Endoscopic US (EUS) is a new technique that can be used for localization of parathyroid lesions. We reported...
