Background: Alstrom syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterised by vision loss, hearing loss, childhood obesity, insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia, type 2 diabetes, hypertriglyceridemia, cardiomyopathy, and progressive pulmonary, hepatic, and renal dysfunction.

Nonmedullary hypercalcitoninemia in a hypocalcemic patient: Shoud we look at serum calcitonin level in the differantial diagnosis of hypocalcemia?

Durmaz Himmet , Aydin Cevdet , Ahmadova Konul , Dirikoc Ahmet , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: Although high levels of calcitonin suggest neoplastic proliferations such as medullary thyroid carcinoma, C cell hyperplasia and some neuroendocrine tumors, systemic diseases and drugs may also elevate calcitonin. Although calcitonin is not as effective as PTH, it has got a role in calcium hemoastasis. Supraphysiological calcitonin level can lead to hypocalcemia.Case presentation: A 57-year-old male patient was diagnosed with epilepsy with co...

Introduction: The risk of malignancy in thyroid nodules is reported by the Bethesda system by performing fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). Atypia of undetermined significance(AUS) or follicular lesion of undetermined significance(FLUS)(Bethesda 3) and suspicious for a follicular neoplasm (Bethesda 4) create uncertainty about treatment and follow-up. Molecular tests, ultrasonographic features of the nodules, and calcitonin level help us for this uncertainty. Here, we will p...
