Ozdemir Didem , Evranos Berna , Gedik Gulsum , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Subacute thyroiditis is an iflammatory disease of the thyroid gland characterized by pain, tenderness and swelling in the neck. Less frequently, it may present with painless or silent thyroiditis that occurs spontaneously or in the postpartum period.

The rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism: Parathyroid Carcinoma

Bestepe Nagihan , Ozdemir Didem , Polat Sefika Burcak , Evranos Berna , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Parathyroid carcinoma (PC) is a rare endocrine malignancy which accounts for 0.005% of all cancers and less than 1% of primary hyperparathyroidism cases. This uncommon tumor usually occurs during the fifth decade of life, with equal frequency in both sexes, and has an indolent but progressive course. It’s frequently symptomatic and patients may have high values of serum calcium and parathyroid hormone (PTH) with a palpable cervical mass. PC generally occurs ...

Evranos Berna , Polat Sefika Burcak , Baser Husniye , Bestepe Nagihan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Premature ovarian failure (POF) is a disorder associated with female infertility, and it affects approximately 1% of women under the age of 40 year. It is considered a multifactorial, heterogeneous condition, for which the exact underlying cause remains unclear. Associations with autoimmune diseases, environmental factors and genetic causes have been described. Herein we presented a case with POF who regained fertility after the treatment of Graves disease.<p...

Real-time sonoelastography and ultrasound evaluation of Achilles tendon of diabetic patients

Evranos Berna , Idilman Ilkay , Ipek Ali , Polat Sefika Burcak , Cakir Bekir , Ersoy Reyhan

Introduction: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an endocrine disease characterised by metabolic abnormalities and long-term complications. Achilles tendon (AT) play an important role in foot biomechanics. We aimed to investigate the effect of DM on the AT, which may contribute to the long-term complications in the foot–ankle complex.Materials and methods: 78 diabetic patients with (35 cases) or without (43 cases) diabetic foot ulcers were recruited from End...

The change in paratyroid hormone level by posture in primary hyperparathyroidism

Aydin Cevdet , Polat Sefika Burcak , Dirikoc Ahmet , Evranos Berna , Cuhaci Neslihan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Major factor that modulates the PTH secretion is serum Ca level. Paratyhyroid gland also receives direct autonomic innervation. To date, measurement of several hormones such as cortisol,prolactin, renin and aldosteron were found to be affected by changing the posture from recumbent to the upright position. In the present study, we aimed to investigate postural change of PTH in normal individuals and patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT).<p class="a...

New onset T1DM after vaccination for measles: Coincidence or consequence?

polat Burcak , Aydin Cevdet , Evranos Berna , Cuhaci Neslihan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Viruses and virus-induced lymphokines may have an important role in the pathogenesis of autoimmunity. The occurrence and significance of autoimmune manifestations after the administration of viral vaccines remain controversial. Herein we have represented a case who developed type 1 diabetes 1 month after vaccination for measles in military.Case: A 25-year-old male patient admitted to our clinics with the complaints of polyuria, poydipsia, a...

Polat Burcak , Aydin Cevdet , Evranos Berna , Cuhaci Neslihan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Hypoglycemia is common in people with diabetes who aim to achieve strict glucose control. The neurologic manifestations of hypoglycemia are mostly reversible and includes behavioral changes, difficulty in concentration, confusion, loss of fine motor functions, and seizures. Herein we have presented a case who was pregnant and experienced severe hypoglycemia which led to permanent ataxia.Case: A 26-years-old female patient was brought to our...

Thyroid disorders in young females with polycystic ovary syndrome: is thyroid volume associated with serum IGF1 level?

Polat Sefika Burcak , Oguz Oguzhan , Sacikara Muhammed , Cuhaci Neslihan , Evranos Berna , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: PCOS is one of the most common disorders affecting at least 5–10% of women of reproductive age. Increased prevalance of autoimmune thyroiditis and goiter were reported in PCOS patients. This study investigated the prevalance of hypothyroidism, thyroid autoimmunity, ultrasonographic features and presence of nodules in PCOS patients and compare them with the control group. We also aimed to detect correlation of thyroid volume (TV) with serum IGF1 levels in patie...

Giant cell granuloma as initial presentation of primary hyperparathyroidism: a case report

Polat Sefika Burcak , Taskaldiran Isilay , Evranos Berna , Kilicaslan Aydan , Kaya Elif , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Giant cell granuloma is a skeletal manifestation seen now rarely in hyperparathyroidism due to early recognition of the disease. Lesions usually occur in the areas of intense bone resorption. They can affect mandible, maxilla, clavicle, ribs and pelvic bones. Most of the patients who have primary hyperparathyroidism are asymptomatic and are discovered incidentally during laboratory examinations. Here, we represent a female patient who was referred to endocrinology clinics beca...
