Comparison of angiotensin receptor blockers and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors for glycaemic regulation

Kut Altug , Bozkus Yusuf , Firat Sevde Nur , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Large scale clinical studies and meta-analysis suggest that treatment with angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) could have protective effect against diabetes development. While diuretics and β-blockers have some well known adverse effect on glycaemic regulation, ARBs/ACEIs’ effect on glucose regulation in patients already diagnosed with diabetes has not been investigated well enough. Also to the best of our knowled...

Diabetes is one of the risk factors for Achilles tendon rupture. Tendon thickening and impaired collagen organization have been reported in diabetic patients in small studies. In this report, we present the rupture of the Achilles tendon in a female patient with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus and diabetic neuropathy.

Nar Asli , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Firat Sevde Nur , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause. The prevalence of neurosarcoidosis is about 5–15%. Hypothalamo-pituitary sarcoidosis is even rarer (<1% of cases evaluated for sellar and stalk lesions).Case Report: A 33-year-old man presented to urology department with erectile dysfunction which started six months ago. Hormonal evaluation revealed gonadotropin deficiency and hyperprolactinemia (Total testosterone: 30.5 ng/dl,...

Ultrasonographic and cytopathological characteristics of thyroid nodules in Graves' disease

Anil Cuneyd , Kirnap Nazli Gulsoy , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Firat Sevde Nur , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Introduction: The risk of malignancy has often been reported to be more frequent in Graves’ disease (GD) than non-autoimmune thyroid nodules. However, frequency of thyroid nodules, diagnostic yield of fine-needle aspiration (FNA), and their potential for bearing malignancy in GD are still debatable issues. We aimed to determine the prevalence, ultrasonographic and cytological features, and the rate of malignancy outcome of thyroid nodules in a group of patients with GD.</...

Taskaldiran Isilay , Firat Sevde Nur , Koc Gonul , Demirturk Pelin , Culha Cavit , Erdogan Murat Faik

Riedel thyroiditis (RT) is a rarest form of thyroiditis, and characterized by dense fibrosis of the throid gland and infiltration into surrounding tissues. RT generally presents with local symptoms association with compression and also fibrotic process can impact thyroid and parathyroid functions. We report a case with RT which presents with compression findings and also hypoparathyroidism and hypothyroidism. 30 year old women visited our outpatient clinic with a complaint of ...

Indications and outcomes of repeated thyroid fine-needle aspirations: a retrospective evaluation from a tertiary centre

Firat Sevde Nur , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Isildak Mehlika , Anil Cuneyd , Gursoy Nazli Kirnap , Nar Asli , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Introduction: Fine needle aspiration (FNA) is the first-line diagnostic test for evaluating thyroid nodules. This test can effectively distinguish between neoplastic and non neoplastic nodules. The Bethesda System suggest that thyroid nodules with non diagnostic (ND), atypia/follicular lesions of undetermined significance (A/FLUS) aspiration should undergo repeat sampling. We aimed to investigate the clinical validity of repeated FNA in the management of patients with thyroid ...

Introduction: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of autosomal recessively inherited disorders that are characterised by inactivating mutations at various steps of adrenal steroidogenic pathways causing defective cortisol biosynthesis. 21-Hydroxylase enzyme deficiency (21-OHd) constitutes more than 95% of all CAH cases.Material & Methods: Medical records of patients with all forms of CAH from 19 adult endocrinology clinics located at six ...
