A case of lymphocytic hypophysitis presented as hemorrhagic pituitary macroadenoma

Aydogan Imge Berna , Emral Rifat , Corapcioglu Demet

Introduction: Lymphocytic hypophysitis is an uncommon disease of the pituitary gland mimicking pituitary macroadenoma on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).Case: A 37-year-old female admitted to our clinic with headache, amenorrhea, polyuria and history of pituitary microadenoma. On laboratory examinations, prolactin level was mildly elevated (42 ng/ml) and FSH–LH levels were normal (2.4–4.04 mIU/ml) despite the low estrogen level (<20 pg/ml)...

Is Pegvisomant correct choice for acromegaly patient with dilated cardiyomypathy?

Cinel Murat , Keskin Caglar , Emral Rifat , Corapcioglu Demet

Objectives: Acromegaly may arise with several clinical presentations and cardiac involvement is the most important factor affecting the course of the disease.Case: A 32-years old man admitted to hospital complaining with shortness of breath. After initial evaluation he was diagnosed as ‘cardiac failure’. Cardiac evaluation revealed that he had ‘dilated cardiomyopathy’ with ejection fraction (EF) of 20%, global hypokinesia without valv...

Surgical outcome of thyroid nodules with atypia of undetermined significance in fine needle aspiration biopsy

Karaoglan Murat , Emral Rifat , Ceyhan Koray , Cinel Murat , Bahcecioglu Adile Begum , Corapcioglu Demet

Thyroid nodules have 3–7% freuquency in general population. FNA biopsy is an important diagnostic tool for patients with thyroid nodules. There are many reporting systems for FNA biopsy and Bethesda system is the most common one. The aim of this retrospective study, detect the atypia of undetermined significance (AUS) rates in the patients who performed FNA biopsy and evaluate the concomittant biopsy results of this patients and malignancy rates in the patients who were c...

Could non-functional adrenal incidentaloma be a risk factor for atherosclerosis and metabolic disturbances?

Emral Rifat , Kose Ayla Demir , Corapcioglu Demet , Demir Ozgur , Uysal Ali Riza

Introduction: Non-functional adrenal incidentalomas (AI) are currently quite important since they can also cause metabolic disturbances. This study was designed to evaluate possible insulin resistance indicators and cardiovascular risk factors in patients with non-functional AI.Patients and methods: 83 patients with non-functional AI were enrolled to the study. Control group consisted of 56 patients without any adrenal lesion. Fasting blood glucose, and ...

Natural course of benign thyroid nodular disease in a borderline iodine-sufficient area: 10-year retrospective follow-up data from a tertiary center

Erdogan Murat , Bahcecioglu Begum , Avcı Merdin Fatma , Emral Rifat , Halil Elhan Atilla , Gullu Sevim

Objective: Thyroid nodules are common in the population more than 90% are benign. Data about the long-term follow-up of benign nodular thyroid disease is limited. We aimed to clarify, clinical outcome, frequency and magnitude of volume changes in cytologically and/or sonographically benign nodules in long-term(> 5 years) follow-up and to determine the predictive features of nodule growth.Methods: We retrospectively collected data of cytologically and...

Cardiovascular risk factors in patients with medically observed and operated primary hyperparathyroidism

Colak Sevgi , Aydogan Berna Imge , Canpolat Asena Gokcay , Kaya Cansin Tulunay , Sahin Mustafa , Corapcioglu Demet , Uysal Ali Riza , Emral Rifat

Introduction: It is known that patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) have an increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In our study, we aimed to investigate the cardiovascular risk factors in medically observed and operated PHPT patients.Materials and methods: Twenty-nine medically observed (group A), 25 pre-operative (group B) and 23 post-operative (group C) patients with PHPT and 26 normocalcemic patients as control group (group D) w...

Characteristics of diabetic foot patients admitted to department of endocrinology and metabolic diseases at ankara university, faculty of medicine

Canlar Sule , Cinel Murat , Mutlu Adile Begum Bahcecioglu , Emral Rifat , Bayram Dilek , Metinarikan Nuran , Yurdakul Birgul , Demir Ozgur , Corapcioglu Demet

Introduction: Diabetic foot is one of the important and destructive complications of diabetes. During the life time of a diabetic patient, the risk of developing foot ulcers is around 5–15%, and about 20–25% of the causes of hospitalization in diabetic patients are due to foot ulcers. 40–80% of foot ulcers can be infected and resulted in osteomyelitis. Hospitalization due to osteomyelitis is 12 times more in diabetic patients than in non-diabetic population....

25-OH vitamin D: a predictor of clinical outcomes in primary hyperparathyroidism

Sahin Mustafa , Aycicek Gozde Sengul , Corapcioglu Demet , Emral Rifat , Gullu Sevim , Erdogan Murat Faik , Gedik Vedia Tonyukuk , Baskal Nilgun , Uysal Ali Riza

Objectives: We aimed to find if there is any relationship between vitamin D levels and clinical, laboratory parameters and osteoporosis, in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT).Material and methods: 128 patients with PHPT and 30 patients as a control group were analysed. Patients with PHPT were grouped due to vitamin D levels and levels low than 20 μg/ml accepted as deficiency.Results: Patients with 25-OH vitamin D <20 &#956...

Clinical features and treatment outcomes of resistant acromegaly patients: a single-centre study

Demir Ozgur , Canpolat Asena Gokcay , Aydogan Berna Imge , Keskin Caglar , Canlar Sule , Sahin Mustafa , Emral Rifat , Gullu Sevim , Gedik Vedia Tonyukuk , Uysal Ali Riza , Corapcioglu Demet

Introduction: Disease control in acromegaly can be achieved by surgery, medical treatment, and radiotherapy either alone or in combination. The acromegaly patients whom tumour shrinkage cannot be provided or growth hormone levels do not decrease under multiple treatment modalities are designated as resistant acromegaly. We aimed in our study to evaluate the clinical features of resistant acromegaly patients and determine their responds to different treatment modalities.<p ...

Concomitant thyroid nodules in primary hyperparathyroidism

Sahin Mustafa , aycicek Gozde Sengul , corapcioglu Demet , emral Rifat , gullu Sevim , erdogan Murat Faik , Gedik Vedia Tonyukuk , Baskal Nilgun , Uysal Ali Riza

Objectives: Coexisting thyroid nodules affect the treatment choice for PHPT. We aimed to evaluate the incidence of concomitant thyroid nodules in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and to investigate the relationship between thyroid nodule volume, thyroid gland volume and thyroid nodules with clinical and laboratory parameters.Materials and methods: This study was carried out at Ankara University Endocrinology and Metabolism Department. 183 patien...
