Severe hypoaldosteronism after unilateral adrenalectomy for primary hyperaldosteronism

Goncalves Joao Ananias , Barrros Rui , Ferreira Betania , Amaral Claudia

Introduction: Primary hyperaldosteronism is a known cause of arterial hypertension, classically with hypokalaemia. About 30–40% of the cases are caused by unilateral aldosterone-producing adenoma, and the recommended treatment is adrenalectomy. Hypoaldestoronism is an uncommon complication of unilateral adrenalectomy, but it can be life-threatening. We present a case of severe hypoaldosteronism after unilateral adrenalectomy for the treatment of primary aldosteronism....

Objective: Graves’ Disease (GD) is one of the most common autoimmune disorders. Some SNP in pro-inflammatory cytokines have already been linked to an increased susceptibility of developing GD. Thyroid hormones are crucial modulators of lipid metabolism. A pro-inflammatory state, may contribute several metabolic changes, including disturbances in lipid metabolism. Our aim was to evaluate if SNP in pro-inflammatory cytokines also contribute to disturbances of lipid profile ...

Background: Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSPN) is one of the most prevalent chronic complications of diabetes and the most common cause in the pathway to diabetic foot ulceration. Screening for DSPN enables early intervention and prevention of complications. The Semmes-Weinstein Monofilament Examination (SWME) is currently the method of choice to screen DSPN, but ideally two neurologic tests should be used. The Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument (MNSI), which evaluat...
