Sleep disorders after craniopharyngioma surgery

Azzoug Said , Meskine Djamila

Introduction: Vicinity and adherence of hypothalamic nuclei to craniopharyngioma explain the high rate of complications and difficulties of removal of these tumors.Subjects and methods: In this retrospective study 50 patients (10 adults and 40 children or adolescents) harboring craniopharyngioma were included. These patients were operated mainly by a frontal approach. We evaluated the frequency of sleep disorders secondary to hypothalamic damage and thei...

Growth retardation and brain imaging

Bouzid Aicha , Meskine Djamila

The diagnostic strategy in the face of stunted growth currently leaves an important place for brain imaging, which looks for growth hormone deficiency, a ‘craniopharyngioma’ tumor, or a malformation of the midline or pituitary region. The purpose of our work is to look for abnormalities of the pituitary area in case of stunted growth.Patients and methods: A retrospective descriptive and analytical study involving 69 patients (30 girls/9 boys) w...

Biological assessment and causes of secondary osteoporosis

Bouzid Aicha , Meskine Djamila

Secondary osteoporosis accounts for 10–20% of the causes of osteoporosis in menopausal women. The search for a possible etiology should not be neglected before considering the therapeutic management of any osteoporosis. There is no consensus on the first-line biological tests to be prescribed.Goal: Determine biological abnormalities in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.Patients/methods: Postmenopausal women are enrolled, ...

Osteoporosis and type 2 diabetes

Meskine Djamila , Bouzid Aicha

Diabetes mellitus and osteoporosis are important comorbidities commonly seen in postmenopausal women. Diabetes can cause bone alterations that increases the risk of fractures. However, in patients with type 2 diabetes, bone mineral density (BMD) often appears not to be decreased, due to diabetes-induced increased weight and body fat mass, which can hamper densitometric assessment of osteoporosis and of fracture risks. The aim of the present study was to compare bone mineral de...

Thickening of the pituitary stalk: About 4 cases

Bouzid Aicha , Meskine Djamila

Introduction: Pathologies of the pituitary stem are very often revealed during diabetes insipidus. The introduction of MRI constituted, in this context, a major diagnostic contribution. We report 4 cases of thickening of the pituitary stem observations. These are 4 patients (3 women and one man) whose age varies from 30 to 47 years, the circumstances of discovery are represented by amenorrhea in women and polyuropolydipsic syndrome in men. Clinically, diabetes insipidus was fo...

Evaluation of calcitonin measurment in fine needle aspitaion biopsy in the diagnostic of medullary thyroid carcinoma

Nour El Houda Khelil , Djamila Meskine

Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a rare but relatively serious disease, whose prognosis depends on the stage of the tumor and the quality of the initial surgical treatment. The determination of the plasma calcitonin; cervical ultrasound, and fine needle aspiration biopsy are first line examinations; nevertheless they do not always make it possible to make a certain diagnosis in preoperative; moreover they do not define the MTC nodule in a multi nodular goiter and the metas...

Potentially aggressive adrenal oncocytoma during pregnancy: about one case

Mezoued Mouna , Smaili Maissa , Meskine Djamila

Oncocytary cells adrenal adenoma or adrenal oncocytoma is an extremely rare tumor, mainly composed by oncocytomes. The diagnosis is exclusively confirmed on histological findings. There are about 50 cases published in the scientific reviews, of which only one case described a pregnant woman.We report an observation about a 31 years old patient, with no personal antecedent, explored in our unit for an adrenal masse, measuring 71×58×46 mm discove...

‘Hyngry bone syndrome’: after tertiary hypeparathyroïdism treatment

Mezoued Mouna , Stiti Meriem , Meskine Djamila

Post parthyroïdectomy hypocalcemia is a frequent situation, generally due to a definitive or transient hypoparathyroïdism.The ‘Hungry bone syndrome’, is a rare severe hypocalcemia etiology, assigned to an excessive osseous avidity, occurring in intense bone remodeling situations like fibrous osteitis or renal osteodystrophy.We report a case of a 41 years old woman, presenting a chronic renal failure, at hemodial...
