Introduction: Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma is a subtype of thyroid carcinomas with an aggressive form. Anaplastic thyroid carcinomas are thought to develop as a result of differentiation of well-differentiated thyroid cancers. Anaplastic transformation of well-differentiated papillary thyroid carcinoma is very rare and most commonly occurs in thyroid gland and regional lymph nodes, whereas occurrence at distant metastatic site is extremely rare. Here we report the case of a pa...

Background and aim: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorder in women with reproductive age. Nodular goiter and autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) are frequently seen endocrinological abnormalities. The aim of this study was to identify the prevalence of AITD and nodular goiter in PCOS patients and investigate whether PCOS related hormones and metabolic factors affect these thyroid disorders.Methods: Ninety-seven with ...

Evaluation of subclinical cardiovascular disease by carotid intima media thickness, epicardial adipose tissue thickness, serum endocan, and nesfatin-1 levels in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism

BackgroundPrimary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is known to be associated with cardiac and metabolic morbidities. Chronic hypercalcemia in PHPT patients has been reported to be associated with an increased risk of mortality, particularly due to cardiovascular disease, during long-term follow-up. Endocan is secreted by vascular endothelial cells and is involved in the regulation of important endothelial functions. Endocan secretion increases in a variety of ...

New biomarkers to predict cardiovasculer risk in patients with adrenal incidentaloma; irisin and nesfatin-1

Can Mustafa , Kocabas Muhammet , Karakose Mellia , Alsancak Yakup , Fatma Hümeyra Yerlikaya Aydemir , HaticeÇalışkan Burgucu , Cordan Ilker , Cengiz Kadıyoran , Kulaksizoglu Mustafa , Karakurt Feridun

ObjectivesEvidence from recent studies suggests that patients with adrenal incidentaloma have increased cardiovascular risk. In our study, we aimed to investigate the levels of irisin, nesfatin-1 and the relationship between levels of these relatively new molecules with cardiometabolic risk markers; carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) thickness and abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT) thickness in patients with ...

BackgroundPapillary thyroid cancer (PTC), has a slow progression and good prognosis and is often treatable, but may show recurrence and metastasis. Age, sex, histopathologic variants of PTC, lymphatic or vascular invasion, lymph node involvement are among the factors affecting the occurrence of metastasis. Endocan is produced in vascular endothelial cells, epithelial cells lining the distal tubules of the kidney, submucosal glands of bronchus and lungs. ...
