Gravvanis Christos , Papanastasiou Labrini , Glikofridi Spyridoula , Voulgaris Nikolaos , Tyfoxylou Ernestini , Kounadi Theodora

Introduction: Primary aldosteronism (PA) is the most common cause of endocrine hypertension. In recent studies, increased prevalence of hyperparathyroidism (HP) has been observed in PA patients. However, the prevalence of HP in overt or milder forms of PA has not been evaluated yet.Objectives: To estimate the prevalence of HP in patients with PA (overt and milder forms) and investigate the effect of treatment (eplerenone or surgery) on PTH secretion....

Arare case of caucasian patient with insulin autoimmune syndrome induced by a-lipoic acid

Glikofridi Spyridoula , Papanastasiou Labrini , Markou Athina , Andrianesis Vasileios , Gravvanis Christos , Kounadi Theodora

Introduction: Insulin autoimmune syndrome (IAS) is characterized by spontaneous hypoglycemia caused by insulin autoantibodies (IA) in the absence of exogenous insulin administration. The occurrence of IAS may be influenced by a genetic predisposition determined by HLA class II. IAS is frequently reported in Japanese and Koreans due to their genetic predisposition (HLA-DRB1*0406) rather than in the Caucasians. Some drugs containing sulfhydryl compounds are known to initiate the...

IntroductionÂ’Maturity-onset diabetes of the youngÂ’ (MODY) constitutes a group of clinically and genetically heterogeneous monogenic forms of diabetes, characterized by beta-cell dysfunction. It describes an autosomal dominantly inherited disorder, caused by mutations in different genes, characterized by noninsulin-dependent diabetes commonly diagnosed at a young age. Fourteen MODY subtypes have been reported, often misdiagnosed as type 1 or 2 d...

The impact of targeted treatment on echocardiographic indices in patients with overt and mild primary aldosteronism, compared to patients with essential hypertension.

Gravvanis Christos , Papanastasiou Labrini , Kaoukis Andreas , Glikofridi Spyridoula , Monastirioti Nicoleta , Voulgaris Nikolaos , Ernestini Tyfoxylou , Markou Athina , GeorgePiaditis

IntroductionPrimary aldosteronism (PA) is associated with cardiovascular events and target organ damage, such as left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and cardiac dysfunction. However the impact of subtle aldosterone secretion on cardiac function has not yet been evaluated.AimTo prospectively evaluate the cardiac function using echocardiographic indices in patients with biochemical overt, mild PA and essential hy...

Introduction: Pheochromocytomas (PCs) and paragangliomas are rare tumours occurring in about 0.6 cases per 100,000 person-years. Biochemically silent PCs with normal catecholamine levels due to lack of catecholamine secretion or subtle secretion within the established normal levels are even rarer. Up to date, biochemically silent PCs are poorly investigated.Aim: To assess the pre-, peri- and post-operative characteristics of patients with biochemically s...
