Kursat Hakan , Mert Meral , Ciftci Dogansen Sema

Introduction and aimGraves’ disease which is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism is an autoimmune disease presenting with goitre, orbitopathy and dermopathy. The disease is caused by stimulant type TSH receptor antibodies (TRAB). TSH receptor (TSHR) has been shown in different tissues other than thyroid. Testis is one of the extrathyroidal tissues with TSHR. The aim of this study was to investigate relationship between TRAB and inhibin-B, whic...

Objective: The aim of the study is to evaluate both the long-term consequences of exposure to dopamine agonists (CAB and BRC) at the beginning and during pregnancy, and the effects of pregnancy on remission.Methods: Thirty-seven prolactinoma patients who developed 58 pregnancies while receiving DAs treatment were included in this retrospective study. Age of gestation; both maximum residual tumor diameter and PRL levels before conception; the course of pr...

Introduction: Dopamine agonists (DAs) consisting of cabergoline (CAB) or bromocriptine is the primary therapy in prolactinomas. DAs are also used in Parkinson’s disease and restless leg syndrome with much higher doses. As a result of reports related to doses in these patients, it is known that long term use of DAs can lead to fibrotic syndromes affecting heart and lung. Cardiac valvulopathies are the most common investigated side effects but there are case reports of ple...

Case report: Adrenal pseudocysts are rare bening lesions that usually mimick solid tumors on imaging. Although they are asymptomatic and often discovered incidentally, distinguishing them from clinically important adrenocortical masses may be problematic before surgery. We report the case of a 50-years-old female who was referred to endocrinology outpatient clinic with a 54×58×50 mm sized mass in the left adrenal gland. Abdominal MRI which was performed because of ri...

Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a disease associated with a decrease in bone mineral density (BMD), especially in cortical bones such as distal radius. Therefore, the BMD measurement of forearm is valuable in the detection of cortical bone loss by PHPT. However, forearm measurement is not routinely recommended for the diagnosis of osteoporosis in PHPT. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the importance and priority of forearm BMD measurement in PHPT.<p ...

Purpose: To evaluate the relationship between basal dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate (DHEA-S) levels and other tests used in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of Cushing’s Syndrome (CS) among the patients with pathologically confirmed CS.Methods: In this multicenter study, the data of 623 patients with CS were evaluated retrospectively. The patients were classified as Group 1 (n = 353 Cushing’s disease;CD), Group 2 (n</e...
