A case of post-traumatic ACTH deficiency followed by Cushing syndrome prediagnosis

Gorar Suheyla , Ademoglu Esra Nur , Dolu Suleyman , Uyar Seyit

Pitüitary ACTH deficiency is one cause of secondary adrenal insufficiency. Genetic factors, autoimmunity, infiltrative disease, cranial trauma can cause ACTH deficiency. Hyperpigmented skin lesions are expected in primary adrenal insufficiency while they are very rare in secondary adrenal insufficiency. Striae are characterized by linear smooth bands of atrophic appearing skin. They are mostly associated with obesity, pregnancy, hypercortisolism/Cushing syndrome. Striae a...

Increased levels of bisphenol a in euthyroid autoimmun thyroiditis

Ademoglu Esra , Keskin Muge , Gorar Suheyla , Carlioglu Ayse

Introduction: Autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT), also called Hashimoto thyroiditis or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is characterized by destruction of the thyroid gland involving apoptosis of thyroid epithelial cells. It usually presents as euthyroidism or subclinically hypothyroidism, rarely as overt hypothyroidism. The cause of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is thought to be a combination of genetic susceptibility and environmental factors. Bisphenol A (BPA), an endocrine-disrupt...

Kalan Sarı Işılay , Gorar Suheyla , Kolağası Oykun

Introduction: Mammary duct ectasia (MDE) is an inflammatory breast disease characterised by dilation of major ducts and periductal inflammation. MDE occurs commonly in women undergoing menopause. The etiology has not been well defined but previous studies described an association between high prolactin and MDE.Case Report: A 42-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with complaints of galactorrhea, amenorrhea, mammary gland tenderness and breast di...

Gorar Suheyla , Bekdemir Handan , Candan Zehra , Culha Cavit , Alioglu Bulent , Aral Yalcin

Introduction: Thyroid dysfunctions and autoimmunity may concur in the pathogenesis of hemostasis abnormalities. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) is a frequently chronic autoimmune disease in thyroid gland. The aim of our study were to comparison the hemostatic parameters in patients with HT and control subjects.Method: A total of 52 women were evaluated. Age, TSH, free T3, free T4, anti M, anti Tg, TAFI, TFPI, PAI-1, tPA, PF-4, fib...

The results of the physical examination were normal, except the patient had noduler guatr. Baseline hormonal investigations and dinamic tests showed panhypopituitarism and partial central diabetes insipidus.

Gestational diabetes mellitus and adiponectin levels

Culha Cavit , Gorar Suheyla , Serter Rustu , Demir Yavuz , Karakaya Pinar , Aral Yalcin

Aim: Hypoadiponectinemia is known to be associated with insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity. Since gestational diabetes is together with increased body mass index (BMI) and decreased insulin sensitivity, the evaluation of adiponectin levels in these patients is interesting. We investigated the relationship between adiponectin and glucose tolerance during pregnancy and after delivery.Materials and methods: We evaluated plasma adiponectin levels, insu...
