Breast cancer mimicking metastasis on iodine-131 imaging in thyroid carcinoma

Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Bozkus Yusuf , Aktas Ayse , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Introduction: Radioiodine ablation with a whole-body scan is a well known therapeutic regimen for differentiated thyroid cancer. I-131 uptake in the breast has been described with a variety of normal and pathologic conditions such as gynecomastia, supernumerary breasts, fibroadenoma and lactational duct cyst or galactocele. Here we report a case with an incidental radioiodine uptake in breast who turned out to be breast cancer.Case report: A 70 years old...

Postpartum osteoporosis: A case report

Şimşek Deniz Turkum Atikcan , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan

Background: Pregnancy and lactation-related osteoporosis can be associated with fractures during the last trimester or early postpartum period. During lactation, a 3–10% bone loss in the lumbar vertebrae has been detected within 3–6 months. When lactation is reduced bone mineral density(BMD) values reach early postpartum levels within 6–18 months. Certain comorbidities, such as hypercalciuria, premature ovarian failure, low body mass index, oligoamenorrhea, seve...

Adrenal gland metastasis of endometrial cancer: A case report

Şimşek Deniz Turkum Atikcan , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan

Background: Although most solid primary tumors can metastasize to the adrenal glands, lung cancer is the most common, followed by renal cell carcinoma, melanoma and colorectal cancer. However endometrial cancer metastasis to adrenal gland is very rare. There are only a few case in literature. Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecological malignancy. In this case, we present a case of adrenal gland metastasis of endometrial cancer.Case presentation:...

Musayeva Nurcahan , Beyazpinar Gulfem , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Oz İsilay , Ozluoglu Levent , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Introduction: The aim of this study is to investigate association between Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) and vestibular function and the possible effect of levothyroxine (LT4) treatment on vestibular functionPatients and methods: We recruited 61 patients with HT and 30 age and gender matched healthy individuals for the study. Of 30 patients with HT were on LT4 treatment (group I) and 31 patients were treatment naive (group II). None of the patients ha...

The clinical course of patients with adrenal incidentaloma: Başkent University experience

Kirnap Nazli Gulsoy , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Bozkus Yusuf , Ramazanova Lala , Nar Asli , Kut Altug , Tutuncu Neslihan

The prevalance of incidentally discovered adrenal masses increased in last three decades. The major clinical concern is the risk of malignancy and hormone overproduction but most of them are non-fonctional and benign. Current practices in the management of adrenal incidentalomas reevaluated the follow-up suggestions considering low probability of the transformation of a benign and non-functional adrenal mass to a malignant or functional one. Therefore, in the present study we ...

A neurosarcoidosis case with pituitary stalk involvement manifesting as hypogonadism and hyperprolactinemia

Nar Asli , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Firat Sevde Nur , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause. The prevalence of neurosarcoidosis is about 5–15%. Hypothalamo-pituitary sarcoidosis is even rarer (<1% of cases evaluated for sellar and stalk lesions).Case Report: A 33-year-old man presented to urology department with erectile dysfunction which started six months ago. Hormonal evaluation revealed gonadotropin deficiency and hyperprolactinemia (Total testosterone: 30.5 ng/dl,...

Ultrasonographic and cytopathological characteristics of thyroid nodules in Graves' disease

Anil Cuneyd , Kirnap Nazli Gulsoy , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Firat Sevde Nur , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Introduction: The risk of malignancy has often been reported to be more frequent in Graves’ disease (GD) than non-autoimmune thyroid nodules. However, frequency of thyroid nodules, diagnostic yield of fine-needle aspiration (FNA), and their potential for bearing malignancy in GD are still debatable issues. We aimed to determine the prevalence, ultrasonographic and cytological features, and the rate of malignancy outcome of thyroid nodules in a group of patients with GD.</...

Self-monitoring of blood glucose and perceived obstacles in Turkish patients with diabetes mellitus

Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Unubol Mustafa , Hatipoglu Bulent Ogun , Degertekin Ceyla Konca

Aims: Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is a necessary component of diabetes management but many patients with diabetes do not follow their healthcare proffesionals’ recommendations for self-monitoring. The aims of this study were to determine the proportion of patients with diabetes who perform SMBG in general practice and to identify patient-reported obstacles for SMBG.Methods: The study included 372 patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes m...

Indications and outcomes of repeated thyroid fine-needle aspirations: a retrospective evaluation from a tertiary centre

Firat Sevde Nur , Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Isildak Mehlika , Anil Cuneyd , Gursoy Nazli Kirnap , Nar Asli , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Introduction: Fine needle aspiration (FNA) is the first-line diagnostic test for evaluating thyroid nodules. This test can effectively distinguish between neoplastic and non neoplastic nodules. The Bethesda System suggest that thyroid nodules with non diagnostic (ND), atypia/follicular lesions of undetermined significance (A/FLUS) aspiration should undergo repeat sampling. We aimed to investigate the clinical validity of repeated FNA in the management of patients with thyroid ...

Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse Elastography and Ultrasonographic Findings of Achilles Tendon in Patients with and without diabetic peripheral neuropathy: a cross-sectional study

Iyidir Ozlem Turhan , Rahatli Feride Kural , Bozkus Yusuf , Ramazanova Lala , Turnaoglu Hale , Nar Asli , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil

Diabetic foot is one of the most feared complication of diabetes. The tendons and ligaments’ stiffness and elasticity are known to be altered in diabetic foot. Achilles tendon (AT) plays an important for foot biomechanics and the altered stiffness of AT may have a role in pathogenesis of diabetic foot. Determination of the early changes in AT may help to identify the risky patients for diabetic foot. Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) Elastography is an elastography ...
