Unilateral Graves' orbitopathy and autoimmune atrophic thyroiditis: case report

Vlad Mihaela , Golu Ioana , Zosin Ioana

Graves’ orbitopathy (GO) represents ophthalmic symptoms that affect, usually, patients with Graves’ disease. Rarely, it can occur in subjects without thyroid dysfunction or with hypothyroidism (2–5% of the cases).In this report we present a rare case with unilateral GO and initial euthyroidism, which progressed to hypothyroidism, due to an autoimmune atrophic thyroiditis.A 39-year-old woman, long-term smoker, was ref...

Primary hepatic neuroendocrine tumor with multiple liver metastases treated with somatostatin analogues: case report

Golu Ioana , Balas Melania , Amzar Daniela , Cornianu Marioara , Vlad Mihaela

Introduction: Somatostatin analogues (SSA) have been used as first line treatment to control the symtoms in hormonally active neuroendocrine tumors (NET), for over three decades. Primary hepatic neuroendocrine tumors (PHNETs) are rare neoplasms. Despite increased incidence of PHNETs over time, these tumors remain a rarity. According to the previously reported cases, primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the liver is usually multicentric, often mimicking liver metastases. The dem...

Post-partum pituitary insufficiency: diagnostic challenge

Amzar Daniela , Balas Melania , Golu Ioana , Vlad Mihaela , Zosin Ioana

Background: Postpartum hypopituitarism, known as Sheehan’s syndrome, occurs during a complicated childbirth, due to severe hemorrhage and hpovolemic shock that lead to ischemic necrosis of the pituitary gland.The aim of the study is to point out the clinical features in postpartum pituitary necrosis, so that the disease could be recognize rapidly, to present a laboratory work-up for a postive diagnosis, and also to describe the com...

Clinical and subclinical hypothyroidism and their relation to cardiovascular risk factors

Golu Ioana , Vlad Mihaela , Cornianu Marioara , Amzar Dana , Tudoran Cristina

The cardiovascular system (CVS) is one of the major targets of thyroid hormone action.The thyroid function has a direct effect on heart rate, cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance.The prevalence of hypothyroidism in the general population is high, particularly in females (9–15%). Overt hypothyroidism is associated with severe cardiovascular manifestations including reduced intravascular volume, increased systemic vas...

Prevalence of sleep apnea sindrome (SAS) in patients with acromegaly

Amzar Daniela , Mihaicuta Stefan , Golu Ioana , Balas Melania , Vlad Mihaela

Sleep apnea syndrome is highly prevalent in acromegaly and only partially reversible after biochemical control of the disease. Consequences of SAS are serious and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality.The present study evaluates clinical aspects in acromegalic patients with sleep apnea syndrome (SAS), diagnosed and followed-up in the Clinic of Endocrinology, Timisoara, in the period 2007–2010. All the cases were confirmed and investi...

Usefulness of Ki-67, PCNA, c-erbB-2 and CK 19 in the diagnosis of some thyroid follicular tumors

Zosin Ioana , Cornianu Marioara , Golu Ioana , Balas Melania , Milos Aurora

This study represents a complex evaluation of a group of 26 cases with thyroid nodular disease (TND), using different diagnostic methods. Clinically and by means of ultrasonography, 12 patients were suspected of malignancy. Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) detected mainly suspicious (12 cases) and malignant smears (5 cases). The microscopic examination of surgical specimens established the following diagnosis: follicular adenoma – FA (4 cases), papillary hyperplasia &...
