A case of pancytopenia with hyperthyroidism

Won K. , Park S. , Moon J. , Yoon J. , Lee H.

Atypical manifestations of hyperthyroidism include hematological, cardiovascular, dermatological manifestation. Especially single lineage abnormalities such as anemia (34%), leukopenia (5.8%), thrombocytopenia (3.3%) are reported, but pancytopenia is a rare presentation of hyperthyroidism. The suspected etiologic mechanisms include ineffective hematopoiesis, reduction in blood cell life span, autoimmune process, toxicity of thyroid hormone.We report a ca...

Sung Y. , Kim D. , Baik S. , Won K. , Kim H. , Oh J. , Lee H.

The metabolic features of Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can vary based on the definition used. The aim of this study is to compare the metabolic characteristics of PCOS according to the phenotypes from various diagnostic criteria and help to establish a optimal diagnostic criteria.Subjects with PCOS defined by the NIH criteria (n=494) and the Rotterdam criteria (n=568) and regular cycling non-hirsuite control women (n=1000) were r...

Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and hsCRP levels in young obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome

Sung Y. , Oh J. , Lee H. , Kim D. , Baik S. , Won K. , Kim H.

Insulin resistance is one of the common features of the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and recent studies indicate the possible role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and inflammatory response. We aimed to investigate the association between 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) and insulin resistance and inflammatory marker in obese women with PCOS and controls.We recruited 50 obese women with PCOS (age 25±5 years, BMI 27.5±2.3...

A possible common link between Graves’ disease and allergic immune response

Kim H. , Kim S. , Chae J. , Kim D. , Baek S. , Won K. , Sung Y.

Background: The elevation of serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) has been recently reported to be associated with GravesÂ’ disease (GD). Interleukin 13 (IL-13) is a major cytokine involved in IgE synthesis and therefore may be a potential candidate gene influencing the clinical course of the GD. The aim of this study are to evaluate whether the atopic parameter such as total IgE is related to TSH receptor antibody (TRAb, thyrotropin-binding inhibitory immunoglobulin: TBII) and wh...
