New-onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT). A case report

Contreras Pascual Cristina , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Montero Benitez Maria Zhao , Alvarez Lopez Susana

New-onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) is a serious complication after a solid organ transplantation. It has been reported to occur in 4% to 25% of renal transplant recipients, 2.5% to 25% of liver transplant recipients, 40% to 60% of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and 2% to 53% of all solid organ transplantations. The diagnosis is performed using unmodified criteria for diagnosing diabetes in the general population and risk factors are the commonly recognized fac...

Central pontine myelinolysis: Case report

Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Contreras Pascual Cristina , Montalban Mendez Cristina , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Zhao Montero Benitez Maria , Jimenez Torrecilla Pedro

Introduction: Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) is a rare and potentially life-threatening complication of a sudden rise in serum osmolality. Along with extrapontine myelinolysis, it is part of the osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS). Known risk factors include severe hyponatremia, alcoholism, thiazide use, hypokalemia, and malnourishment.Case report: We report the case of a 31-year-old-male with history of alcohol and cannabis dependence, who had atte...

Radiofrequency and ethanol ablation for benign thyroid nodules: case series

Jimenez Torrecilla Pedro , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Montalban Mendez Cristina , Zhao Montero Benitez Maria , del Val Zaballos Florentino , Gomez Garcia Ines

Introduction: Thyroid nodule is a frequent condition, being diagnosed in up to 70% of subjects who had undergone thyroid ultrasound. Around 90-95% of them became being benign and, if the do not cause compressive symptoms or esthetical problems, they do not need specific therapy, only clinical follow up. Traditionally, thyroidectomy has been the main therapeutic option in these cases. Radiofrequency and ethanol ablations are recently introduced non-invasive therapies that permi...

Secondary amenorrhea as unique manifestation of acromegaly due to giant pituitary adenoma

Contreras Pascual Cristina , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Silva Fernandez Julia , del Val Zaballos Florentino , Garcia-Manzanares Vaquez-de Agredos Alvaro , Javier Gomez Alfonso Francisco , Rosa Gomez Garcia Ines

Introduction: Pituitary adenomas are considered to be benign tumors that are diagnosed by its sympthoms (secondary to compression or hormonal secretion) or incidentally in an imaging technique performed because of another reason. ‘Silent’ somatotrophinomas are very rare. This type of adenoma is typically large and despite it presents with mild or no acromegalic features it usually develops hormone secretion.A case report: A 29-year-old spanish ...

Response to stroke in diabetic versus non-diabetic patients. Should Diabetes education systematically include advise on stroke symptoms and the correct response to them?

Gonzalez-Lazaro Paloma , Silva-Fernandez Julia , Garcia-Ruiz Rafael , Garcia-Ruiz Rosa , Gomez-Alfonso Francisco Javier , Del Val-Zaballos Florentino , Torres-Arroyo Belvis , Gonzalez-Pereira Carolina

Introduction: Stroke is the second cause of death in the world and the first cause of disability. It is also the second cause of Diabetes-related death. The success of reperfusion therapies is time-dependent, with most delays being patient-related. We investigated the response to stroke in diabetic patients (DM), as their risk of stroke is increased by 1,8-6 times.Material and Methods: Consecutive patients with acute stroke or transient ischemic attack w...

Genetics in pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma: a case series

Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Contreras Pacual Cristina , Silva Fernandez Julia , Torres Arroyo Belvis , Javier Gomez Alfonso Francisco , Del Val Zaballos Florentino , Gomez Garcia Ines , Garcia Manzanares Alvaro

Introduction: In most patients with familial history of pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma, leads in the majorty of cases to a postive genetic testing for mutations, and what’s more in those patients with no familial antecedents, about 10–25% carry a mutation in one related gene. In these cases other aspects like, bilaterality, multiplicity or location must be taken into account.Objective: The objective of the study was to discuss the importance of...

Recurrence of hyperprolactinemia after dopamine agonists withdrawal

Contreras Pascual Cristina , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Silva Fernandez Julia , Gomez Garcia Ines , Maria Torres Arroyo Belvis , del Val Zaballos Florentino , Javier Gomez Alfonso Francisco , Garcia Manzanares Vazquez Alvaro

Introduction: Prolactinomas are the most common tumors among functional pituitary adenomas and they constitute 40% of all pituitary tumors. Dopamine agonists (DA) are considered the primary treatment of prolactinoma. DA can lead to complete remission (including eradicacion of the tumor), allowing discotinuation of treatment. So far, there aren’t clinical criteria with sufficient predictive value for long-term remission.Objective: To assess the effec...

HbA1c response after initiation of flash glucose monitoring in adults with diabetes

Tirado Antonio Moreno , Mendez Cristina Montalban , Montero Benitez Maria Zhao , Torrecilla Pedro Jimenez , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Del Val Zaballos Florentino , Meneses Amparo Lomas , Gomez Alfonso Francisco Javier , Iglesias Maria Lopez , Gomez Garcia Ines

Introduction and Objective: Flash glucose monitoring is a form of interstitial glucose monitoring and it is indicated in patients with diabetes mellitus.The objetive of the study was to assess the effect of introducing flash glucose monitoring in adults with diabetes with respect to change in hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c).Material and methods: Prospective observational study of adults with diabetes in our center, in whom a prescription for a flash glucose monit...

Hypothyroidism associated with treatment with immunotherapy: case series

Zhao Montero Benitez Maria , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Mendez Cristina Montalban , Tirado Antonio Moreno , Torrecilla Pedro Jimenez , Zaballos Florentino Del Val , Meneses Amparo Lomas , Alfonso Francisco Javier Go mez , Iglesias Maria Lopez , Gomez Garcia Ines

Introduction: The development of immunotherapy has opened up a new approach in the management of different types of tumors that previously had not treatment, and its use is becoming increasingly widespread. Immunotherapy is based on blocking immune checkpoints involved in activating the immune response to malignant neoplasms. Since its introduction into clinical practice, several adverse effects related to the immune system have been reported. Among the endocrinological advers...

Long term functional prognosis is worse in patients with chronic hyperglycemia

Silva-Fernandez Julia , Garcia-Ruiz Rafael , Gomez-Alfonso Francisco Javier , Del Val-Zaballos Florentino , Torres-Arroyo Belvis , Gonzalez-Lazaro Paloma , Contreras-Pascual Cristina , Montalban-Mendez Critina , Gomez-Garcia Ines

Diabetes and acute hyperglycemia are known to increase stroke volume and disability in stroke patients, and deliver worse outcomes after reperfusion therapies. Chronic glycemic status has recently been linked to stroke functional outcome, but its impact on long term prognosis of stroke has rarely been studied. We conducted a study to investigate the impact of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels on functional outcome 1 year after stroke.Methods: Patien...
