Adrenocortical cancer: our experience in a tertiary center of endocrinology

Lazar Elena , Caragheorgheopol Andra , Tomulescu Victor , Badiu Corin

Adrenocortical cancer is a rare, aggressive disease, requiring a fast and multidisciplinary approach. The genetics is heterogeneous so is also the clinical course. In the last 10 years, we have diagnosed and treated a number of 20 cases, aged at diagnosis between (34–74 years) (mean 55.9±12.87), followed up between (2–77 months) (mean 25.75±23.58). The maximal diameter of the tumor was (5.5–25) (mean 10.95±5.43). The secretion profile was Cushing ...

Atypical X-linked adult adrenoleukodystrophy with cerebellar and brainstem involvement – a case report

Lazar Elena , Ilie Mirela , Tanasescu Radu , Popescu Bogdan , Badiu Corin

Background: X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a peroxisomal disorder of beta-oxidation that results in accumulation of very long chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) in various tissues. The clinical phenotype of X-ALD in adults is variable and involves adrenal, gonadal and nervous system dysfunction (adrenomyeloneuropathy, AMN). Patients with AMN typically develop spastic paraparesis due to progressive degeneration of the cerebral white matter.Objective: To r...

Post-traumatic hypopituitarism – a case report

Lazar Elena , Marin Alexandra , Dobrescu Ruxandra , Badiu Corin

Background: Head trauma of sufficient severity, particularly causing fracture to the skull base, can cause deficient secretion of anterior pituitary hormones and vasopressin. Severe hypopituitarism and diabetes insipidus (DI) are common post-traumatic events but they can recover 3 and 12 months afterwards.Objective: To report a case of a woman with post-traumatic hypopituitarism and DI after car accident.Case report: A 31 year old ...

Proliferative potential of normo- and hyperfunctioning thyroid nodules

Cornianu Marioara , Dema Alis , Golu Ioana , Taban Sorina , Vlad Mihaela , Lazar Elena , Lazureanu Codruta , Grigoras Mirela

Introduction: Thyroid follicular adenomas (FA) and adenomatous nodules (AN) – lesions frequently found in areas with iodine deficiency, can be normo-/hypofunctioning (scintigraphically cold – SCN) or hyperfunctioning (scintigraphically hot – SHN) nodules.Aim: Evaluation of proliferation potential in thyroid nodules on tissue samples obtained at surgery from euthyroid patients clinically diagnosed with SCN and from patients with thyroid hyp...

The value of CK19, Ki-67 and p53 expression in the diagnosis of thyroid follicular neoplasms

Cornianu Marioara , Dema Alis , Taban Sorina , Golu Ioana , Muresan Anca , Cornea Remus , Lazar Elena , Faur Alexandra

Introduction: Cytokeratin-19 (CK19), p53 and Ki-67 are some of the proposed markers for differentiating benign from malignant thyroid tumors.Material and method: We evaluated the tissue expression of the three markers in 60 thyroid lesions including: 8 cases of nodular hyperplasia (NH), 16 follicular adenomas (FA), 26 papillary carcinomas (PC) and 10 follicular carcinomas (FC). Tissue sections fixed in formalin and embedded in paraffin were immunohistoch...

Primary carcinoid as an incidental finding in a mature cystic teratoma of the ovary: case report

Cornianu Marioara , Dema Alis , Golu Ioana , Lazar Elena , Taban Sorina , Faur lexandra , Amzar Daniela , Zosin Ioana

Carcinoid tumors are distinct neuroendocrine neoplasms with characteristic histological, clinical and biological features.Material and methods: An extremely rare case of a primary carcinoid tumor arising in a mature cystic teratoma is reported. A 23-year-old woman was admitted with pain in the lower abdomen and for further examination of a tumor in the left anexa. Transabdominal ultrasonography demonstrated a cystic mass measuring 110/70 mm, with irregul...

Ovarian serous and mucinous tumors of low malignant potential: patterns of stromal invasion

Costi Simona , Dema Alis , Golu Ioana , Cornianu Marioara , Taban Sorina , Muresan Anca , Lazar Elena

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the histologic spectrum of stromal–epithelial patterns of invasion in ovarian serous and mucinous tumors of low malignant potential.Materials and methods: We retrospectively analyzed 31 cases of borderline ovarian serous and mucinous tumors diagnosed of the Pathology Department of County Hospital Timisoara in a period of 5 years, between 2003 and 2007. Epithelial architecture, the patterns of stroma...

The role of elevated microvessel density in the metastatic potential of papillary thyroid carcinoma

Cornianu Marioara , Golu Ioana , Lazar Elena , Dema Alis , Taban Sorina , Costi Simona , Milos Aurora , Zosin Ioana

Introduction: The value of microvessel density (MVD) as a prognostic factor in thyroid carcinomas, and its role in the development of metastasis, remain controversial.Aim: Determination of the relationship between MVD, the histological subtype of PTC, the presence or absence of metastasis in cervical lymph nodes (LN), the recurrence of the disease and AMES prognostic index.Material and method: The study included 32 patients with PT...

Apparently non secreting adenoma: a new challenge

Diana-Georgiana Lazar , Elena Oros Sabina , Dumitrascu Anda , Alexandrescu Daniela , Raluca Petria Andreea , Stoica Sergiu

IntroductionSilent corticotroph adenoma represent an uncommon subtype of nonfunctioning adenoma, immunoreactive for ACTH, without clinical or biochemical evidence of hypercortisolism and unclear pathogenesis. Usually, they present with local mass effect (visual deterioration being the most common) and endocrine dysfunctions. They carry a more aggressive behavior, particularly upon earlier recurrence.Case presentation<p class="a...

The study of an immunohistochemical aggresivity marker in mammary carcinomas

Maria Muresan Anca , Elena Lazar , Alis Dema , Alexandra Faur , Remus Cornea , Diana Herman , Cristian Suciu , Izabella Sargan

Introduction: The mammary cancer is the most frequent malign tumor encountered in females, characterized by a high distant metastasis tendency. Among the potential prognosis factors, we mention the biomarkers that measure or are associated with biologic processes involved in the tumorous progression. The study analyzes the p53 protein’s positivity in correlation with the mammary cancer’s classical prognosis factors: the hystologic type, the histopathologic degree, th...
