Metastatic phaeochromocytoma and catecholamine-induced cardiomyopathy

Seguna Desiree , Thornton George , Davies Ceri , Waterhouse Mona

Case history: A previously asymptomatic 58-year-old gentleman presented following an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, precipitated by multiple, bilateral pulmonary emboli.Investigations: In the course of investigation, a 35 mm, MIBG-negative, right adrenal lesion was discovered. Functional adrenal tests revealed significantly elevated normetanephrine and 3-methoxytyramine levels. Severe hypertension and type 2 diabetes were concurrently diagnosed.<p c...

Lim Chung Thong , Bertalan Rita , Davies Ceri , McElreavey Kenneth , Korbonits Marta

A 31-year-old female was referred to Endocrinology clinic for review of her hypergonadotrophic-hypogonadism. She had cleft palate operation at age 3. At age 15y lack of pubertal signs prompted investigations showing XX genotype, FSH:120 IU/L, LH:32 IU/L and low E2. She was started on cyclo-progynova (elsewhere). She has tall stature, span 2.5 cm longer than height, bifid uvula, arachnodactyly with positive ‘wrist sign’, mild scoliosis, pectus excavatum and reduced mu...

Acromegaly causes a distinct cardiomyopathy. Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) limits cardiac response to exercise and increases cardiac mortality. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is considered the gold standard for assessment of cardiac mass and provides data on function, fibrosis, valves and ischaemia. Twenty-three patients with abnormal GH levels (acromegaly, n=13; adult-onset GHD, n=10) and 23 matched controls underwent CMR. Patients had repeat CMR at ...
