There is a detectable immune activity in the orbits of all patients diagnosed with Graves' disease regardless of later development of Graves' orbitopathy

Graves’ orbitopathy (GO) is a common complication of Graves’ disease (GD) which is often responding poorly to therapy. GO may develop before or together with, or during the course of GD. In an individual patient, the development of GO cannot be predicted. We assumed that orbital autoimmune activity is predictable using orbital 99mTc-labelled diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (99mTc-DTPA) SPECT. We aimed to determine whether any orbital autoimmune activity can be id...

Erdei Annamaria , Daniel Eszter , Gazdag Annamaria , Griger Miha ly , Nagy Edit B , Nagy Endre V

Introduction: Acromegaly is usually caused by pituitary macroadenoma producing excess growth hormone. Treatment options include surgery to remove the tumor, medications, and radiation therapy.Case report: A 39-year-old woman has been referred to the endocrine clinic with suspected acromegaly in December 2019. Surgery for benign ovarian cyst, endometriosis, amenorrhoea, unsuccessful in vitro fertilisations were present in her medical history. She complain...

Gazdag Annamaria , Nagy V Endre , Varga Emma , Samson Laszlo , Erdei Annamaria , Jenei Zoltan

Long-term follow-up of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) patients requires yearly measurements of serum thyroglobulin (Tg) levels is endogenous (4 weeks off-thyroxin) or exogenous (human recombinant TSH injection) high TSH state. Subclinical hyperthyroidism is maintained in the patients throughout the rest of the year. We examined the endothelial function, hemostasis factors and metabolic parameters in short-term iatrogenic hypothyroidism (HO) and in subclinical hyperthyroid...

Pregnancy induces hormonal and metabolic changes that result in profound alterations of thyroid hormone economy and regulation. Adaptation of the pituitary-thyroid axis may be influenced by the iodine supply, especially iodine deficiency.The aim of the study was to define characteristics of changes in certain biochemical parameters and regulation of thyroid function during pregnancy in a mildly iodine-deficient region of Hungary. Thirty-eight healthy pre...
