Neck lesions located outside the thyroid bed with similar echogenity of thyroid tissue

Dellal Fatma Dilek , Aydin Cevdet , Ozdemir Didem , Ersoy Reyhan , Ocal Berrak G. , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: We aimed to determine demographical, hormonal, ultrasonography(US) and cytological features of cases with neck lesions that are located outside the thyroid region and have similar echogenity with thyroid tissue.Method: Neck US reports of patients who underwent fine needle aspiration(FNAB) under US guidance in our clinic in a period of one year were reviewed retrospectively. Lesions having similar echogenity with thyroid tissue and defined a...

47,XYY syndrome and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism: is this coincidence or a diverse spectrum of the syndrome?

Dellal Fatma Dilek , Aydin Cevdet , Bestepe Nagihan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: 47,XYY syndrome is characterized by an extra copy of the Y chromosome in each cells of a male. It occurs in about 1/1000 of newborn boys and most males with this syndrome have normal sexual development and fertility. They tend to have tall stature and mild motor and language developmental problems. Testosterone levels are normal. Increased rate of criminal activity in XYY males was related to a lack of judgement and lower socioeconomic status due to a lower mean ...

Ultrasonographical features and cytological findings of thyroid nodules in patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis

Ozdemir Didem , Dellal Fatma Dilek , Baser Husniye , Yazgan Aylin Kilic , Turkolmez Seyda , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: It is unclear whether ultrasonographic (US) findings and fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) results of nodules accompanied with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) are affected by the presence of thyroiditis or not. In this study, we compared US features and cytological results of nodules in patients with and without HT.Methods: Patients who underwent FNAB in our clinic were evaluated prospectively. Nodules in patients with and without HT w...

Ultrasonographical and cytological features of exophytic thyroid nodules: do exophytic nodules pretend to be malignant?

Dellal Fatma Dilek , Baser Husniye , Ozdemir Didem , Kilicarslan Aydan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: Exophytic nodule refers to a nodule that sticks out of the normal thyroid boundary/outline. Other definition is a nodule with an acute angle between the lesion and adjacent thyroid capsule. In the literature, one study reported that thyroid nodules with exophytic configuration showed a high malignancy rate. We aimed to compare ultrasonographical features and cytopathologic results of exophytic and non-exophytic thyroid nodules.Material and method: T...

Three endocrine neoplasms: an unusual combination of pituitary adenoma, papillary thyroid carcinoma, and follicular thyroid carcinoma

Kaya Mina Gulfem , Dellal Fatma Dilek , Kaya Cafer , Altunkaya Canan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: Differentiated thyroid cancer is the most frequent thyroid tumor. Combinations of follicular carcinoma and papillary carcinoma are seen. Functional pituitary adenoma coexisting with differentiated thyroid carcinoma was reported previously in literature. We report a 47-year-old women with three different synchronous endocrine tumors; papillary thyroid cancer, follicular thyroid cancer, and prolactinoma.Case: A 47-years-old female patient was a...

A case with macroprolactinemia and gigantomastia responding to cabergoline treatment

Dellal Fatma Dilek , Aydin Cevdet , Kaya Mina Gulfem , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Macroprolactinemia is reportedly 10–25% in patients with hyperprolactinemia (1). Prolactin plays a major role in breast development (2). Macromastia, gigantomastia, breast hypertrophy are used interchangeably (3). Most authors conclude that gigantomastia cannot be treated medically and only resolves with surgical manoeuvres (4). We report a case with gigantomastia diagnosed with macroprolactinemia and treated with cabergolin.Case: A 44-year-old woma...

Are clinicopathological features of isthmic thyroid nodules different from nodules located in thyroid lobes?

Dellal Fatma Dilek , Topaloglu Oya , Baser Husniye , Dirikoc Ahmet , Altınboga Aysegul Aksoy , Kilinc Ibrahim , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: Although thyroid nodules located in isthmus were less frequent, papillary thyroid cancer in this location was reported to be more aggressive in some studies. Our aim was to evaluate hormonal, ultrasonographic, and cytopathologic features of nodules located in isthmus (isthmic nodules).Material and methods: Data of patients who underwent thyroidectomy between 2006–2014 were reviewed retrospectively. Hormonal, ultrasonographic, and cytopathologic...

The Effect of Ramadan fasting on thyroid hormone levels in patients on levothyroxine treatment

Dellal Fatma Dilek , Ogmen Berna , Ozdemir Didem , Cuhaci Fatma Neslihan , Polat Sefika Burcak , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: Contradictory results in limited number of studies were reported about the effects of Ramadan fasting on thyroid hormones. We aimed to evaluate the thyroid functions in Ramadan, and compare late evening or pre-sahour use of levothyroxine in patients being treated for hypothyroidism.Methods: Patients taking levothyroxine for hypothyroidism who were seen in the last one week before Ramadan (8–15 May 2018) and had normal thyroid functions were rec...

Comparison of clinicopathological features in patients with familial and sporadic papillary thyroid cancer

Dellal Fatma Dilek , Ozdemir Didem , Aydin Cevdet , Ogmen Berna , Kilicarslan Aydan , Kilic Mehmet , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Although, familial medullary thyroid cancer is a known condition, familial papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) is a rare and less well described clinical entity. While some studies suggest more aggressive features in familial PTC, some do not support these findings. We aimed to compare ultrasonographical, cytopathological and histopathological results of patients with familial and sporadic PTC.Methods: Data of 194 patients diagnosed with PTC his...

Malignancy risk and false negative rate of fine needle aspiration cytology in thyroid nodules equal or greater than 4 cm

Bestepe Nagihan , Ozdemir Didem , Ali Tam Abbas , Dellal Fatma Dilek , Kilicarslan Aydan , Parlak Omer , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: We aimed to evaluate malignancy rate in thyroid nodules ≥4 cm and determine false negativity of fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) in these nodules.Methods: Patients who underwent thyroidectomy between January 2007 and December 2014 in our institution were reviewed. Demographical and clinical data and preoperative ultrasonography (US) findings were obtained from the medical records. The nodules in these patients were grouped as &#8805...
