Objectives: Patients with thyroid dysfunction due to AITD have been found to have increased oxidative stress. Possible associations of oxidative stress with thyroid hormone (TH) and thyroid autoantibodies (ThAb) levels in euthyroid patients with autoimmune thyroiditis have not been adequately studied. We examined possible associations of oxidative stress markers with TH levels and with the presence of ThAb in euthyroid women with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (with or without T...

Introduction: Polymorphisms of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (AGEs), RAGE, have been associated with autoimmune disorders and their complications. There are no studies concerning Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT); the aim of our study was to investigate the possible role of two RAGE polymorphisms (−429T>C, −374T>A) in combination with indices of oxidative status in women with HT.Design: We examined 300 euth...

Background: In patients with adrenal nodules increased 17-OH Progesterone (17-OHP) does not necessarily indicate congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) since adrenocortical tumors may harbor defects in steroidogenesis resulting in high steroid precursors, either basally or, usually, after Synacthen stimulation. Secretion of precursors has been associated with malignancy but it can also be present in benign adenomas.Case Presentation: A 62-year-old lady wit...
