Kacem Faten Hadj , Ammar Mouna , Elleuch Mouna , ghorbel Dorra , Abdallah Rihab Ben , Charfi Nadia , Sefi Wajdi , Mnif Mouna , Abid Mohamed

Introduction: The metabolic stressor, hypoglycemia, elicits integrated counterregulatory responses, including activation of the hypothalamic┬ľpituitary┬ľadrenal axis. However, it is suggested that recurring insulin-induced hypoglycemia can impair this counter-regulation. Here we report three cases of patients with isulinoma and corticotroph deficiency.Case reports: The first case, 38-year-old man was referred because of recurrent episode...

Mnif Fatma , Charfi Hana , Salah Dhoha Ben , Akid Faten Haj Kacem , Charfi Nadia , Majdoub Nabila Rekik , Mnif Mouna , Elleuch Mouna , Abid Mohamed

Introduction: Tuberculosis is an infectious disease that involves any organ. However, the primary pituitary tuberculosis is an extremely rare disease. Intracranial tuberculomas account for 0,15-5% of intracranial space-occupying lesions, of which pituitary as the primary site, and easily misdiagnosed as pituitary adenoma. In this setting, the late diagnosis can result in permanent endocrine dysfunction. We hereby report the case of a patient with pituita...
