Sagi Satyanarayana V , Hikmat Mondy , Oyibo Samson O , Rajkanna Jeyanthy

Introduction: Klinefelter’s syndrome (KFS) is associated with an increased risk of certain malignancies; including leukemia, breast cancer and mediastinal germ cell tumours. Testicular tumours are uncommon. Epidermoid cysts are benign tumours of hair-growing areas. Testicular epidermoid cysts are very rare and account for 1–2% of all testicular tumours. We report a rare case of bilateral epidermoid cysts in a patient with Klinefelter’s syndrome.<p class="abs...

Dapsone-induced discordant glycated haemoglobin values in a patient with type 1 diabetes

Sagi Satyanaraynana V , Hikmat Mondy , Lum Mark , Rajkanna Jeyanthy , Seechurn Shivshankar B , Oyibo Samson O

Introduction: Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is used to measure glycaemic control in patients with diabetes, and accuracy depends on normal erythrocyte lifespan. Dapsone causes spuriously low HbA1c results by reducing erythrocyte lifespan through haemolysis and methaemoglobin formation, which interferes with the liquid-chromatography method used to measure HbA1c. Dapsone-induced haemolysis (DIH) is mostly reported in patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficie...
