Gohil Shailesh , Barwell Julian , Levy Miles

Case: A 69 year old gentleman with a past medical history of essential hypertension presented to medical services with symptoms of weight loss, muscle weakness and fatigue. Following blood tests, a CT scan, liver biopsy and biochemical screening, a metastatic phaeochromocytoma was diagnosed. He was commenced on alpha and beta blockade. Further imaging, including a MIBG scan, showed non-resectable disease therefore he underwent therapeutic MIBG treatment. Following a good respo...

Cushing’s disease detected following an adrenal incidentaloma

Gohil Shailesh , Kieffer Veronica , Levy Miles

Background: Adrenal incidentalomas are classified as adrenal lesions picked up on imaging performed due to reasons other than to look at the adrenals. With cross sectional imaging becoming more frequent, the frequency of adrenal lesions being detected and referred to endocrine services is increasing and dedicated adrenal incidentaloma clinics are being set up to screen these patients for potential pathology.Case: We present a 63 year old lady who underwe...

Cranial Diabetes Insipidus – A survey of patient safety concerns in secondary care

Gohil Shailesh , Reddy Narendra , Levy Miles

Background: Knowledge of Cranial Diabetes Insipidus (CDI) is poor amongst healthcare professionals. Intra-nasal Desmopressin sprays are often mistaken for pulmonary inhalers, and Diabetes Insipidus mistaken for Diabetes Mellitus, leading to incorrect management and harm. Correct Desmopressin administration and fluid management is paramount in inpatients, especially in reduced conscious states.Aim: To explore Clinicians’ concerns regarding safety iss...

Rhabdomyolysis associated with severe hypothyroidism

Marta Lubczynska Malgorzata , Macriyiannis Thrasos , Gohil Shailesh

Patients with clinical hypothyroidism often complain of muscular symptoms i.e., cramps, weakness and fatigue. However, rhabdomyolysis triggered by severe hypothyroidism is rarely reported. In most cases, external triggers (use of statins or excessive exercise) can be easily identified and modified. In absence of beforementioned triggers, it is prudent to look for other causes of rhabdomyolysis. On the forefront, it would be crucial to exclude myocardial ischaemia, followed by ...

A personalised approach to tracking circulating cell free tumour derived DNA in a patient with adrenocortical carcinoma

Gohil Shailesh , Page Karen , Hastings Rob , Shaw Jacqui , Levy Miles

Introduction: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is rare, with an incidence of 0.5-2 cases per million. Although generally aggressive, prognosis is highly variable and difficult to predict. Unlike other malignancies, there are no biomarkers routinely available for use in patients with ACC to help guide management. Circulating cell free tumour derived DNA (ctDNA), the proportion of circulating cell free DNA (cfDNA) originating from tumour cells, is a liquid biopsy that is quickly g...

Delayed growth and puberty due to pituitary iron deposition from beta-thalassaemia major

Dales Jolyon , Bhake Ragini , Gohil Shailesh , Greening James

Introduction: The predominant management of beta-thalassemia major is repeated blood transfusions but this runs the risk of haemosiderosis leading to multiple endocrinopathies. Iron chelation therapy can reduce this risk, however universal access is poor. Case Presentation: An 18 year old male with “type 1 diabetes” was referred to Young Adult Diabetes Clinic having arrived to the UK from Syria 10 days previously. The only past medical history ...

From pathological insulin resistance to pathological insulin sensitivity - a rare case of insulinoma unmasked by bariatric surgery

Papamargaritis Dimitris , Gohil Shailesh , Bhake Ragini , Levy Miles , Reddy Narendra

Introduction: Hypoglycaemia following bariatric surgery is a recognised complication, secondary to increased incretin secretion to nutrient intake due to altered gut anatomy. It is predominantly postprandial, and usually occurs >6 months postoperatively. We report a case of insulinoma unmasked during the early postoperative period after sleeve gastrectomy (SG).Case presentation: A 49-year old female with severe obesity without diabetes underwent SG. ...

Radioactive Iodine Treatment in Hyperthyroidism is Associated with Increased Body Weight

Al Jumaah Ali , Gohil Shailesh , Levy Miles J , Reddy Narendra

Introduction: Definitive treatment of hyperthyroidism with Radioactive Iodine (RAI) ablation therapy has been associated with weight gain from RAI induced hypothyroidism. Literature on weight data of post-RAI patients following normalisation of thyroid function is equivocal.Objective: We undertook a retrospective study to evaluate the effect of RAI on weight in Hyperthyroid patients in University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (UHL). <p class="abst...

The incidence of additional primary malignancies in patients with GEP-NETs

Gohil Shailesh , Noble Sophie , Iwuji Chinenye , Levy Miles

Background: When seeing patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NETs) in clinic, we noticed that a significant proportion of our patients also had additional primary malignancies. This observation was also raised by patients at our local NET Patient Foundation support group. The idea that patients with GEP-NETs are more prone to additional malignancies is supported in the literature therefore we wanted to determine the proportion of our patients who ha...

Hepatocellular carcinoma masquerading as an adrenocortico-carcinoma

Gohil Shailesh , Iwuji Chinenye , Noble Sophie , Levy Miles

Case: A 62 year old man was admitted acutely with right sided abdominal pain. A CT scan with contrast showed an acute right-sided adrenal haemorrhage with adjacent necrotic lymphadenopathy and multiple pulmonary nodules. An MRI, requested to further define the lesion, reported a malignant looking 7.4 cm right adrenal mass with direct focal invasion into the liver and inferior vena cava however no further liver lesions were identified. The images were discussed at the multi-dis...
