Kelestimur F

Autoimmune hypophysitis (AH) is characterized by lymphocytic infiltration and eventually destruction of the pituitary tissue. AH accounts for ~1% of pituitary masses and 0.5% of hypopituitarism. Although it has been recognized as an uncommon pituitary disease, its true frequency is not known but certainly underestimated. AH may affect pre- and post-menopausal women, men and children, but most cases are reported in women during reproductive age. AH may be associated with other ...

Investigation of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis in patients with irritable bowel syndrome

Baskol M , Gokce C , Yucesoy M , Kelestimur F

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) which is very common is characterized by chronic intermittent symptoms, including recurrent abdominal pain, altered frequency of defecation, stool urgency and excess flatus. Widespread symptoms associated with IBS are abnormal defecation and abdominal pain, both of which can be exacerbated by psychogenic stress. IBS is one of the stress-related bodily disorders and it has been suggested that patients with IBS may exhibit disturbances in the hypot...

Sheehan's syndrome and non-functioning pituitary adenoma - a comparison of clinical characteristics and response to growth hormone replacement

Goth M , Auernhammer C , Colak R , Gomez J , Molvalilar S , Kelestimur F

Sheehan's syndrome occurs as a result of ischemic pituitary necrosis due to severe postpartum haemorrhage. It is characterized by varying degrees of anterior pituitary dysfunction and GH is one of the earliest hormones lost. We have compared patients with Sheehan's syndrome (n=189) and with non-functioning pituitary adenoma (NFPA; n=117) to determine whether adult GH deficient patients with Sheehan's syndrome have different baseline characteristics and whether they respond in ...

A rare cause of intrasellar mass: Cholesterol granuloma

Kelestimur F , Unluhizarci K , Colak R , Balkanli S , Karahan I , Selcuklu A , Ozturk F , Bayram F

The most common cause of a mass lesion in the sella is pituitary adenoma. Some parasellar lesions may be cystic and sometimes may mimic the clinical and radiological features of pituitary adenoma. A 36 year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of headache for five years and amenorrhoea for five months. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the pituitary gland showed sellar mass lesion characterized by high signal intensity on T1 and T2-weighted images. Endocrinological ...

A Hacioglu , A Sezgin Caglar , S. T. Firat , Z Karaca , N Kalay , S Taheri , A Selcuklu , K Unluhizarci , F Kelestimur

Background: CushingÂ’s syndrome is a well-known risk factor for endothelial dysfunction, cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.Objectives: We aimed to prospectively investigate changes in metabolic and cardiovascular parameters and their correlations with markers of endothelial function in patients with endogenous Cushing syndrome following remission. Methods: Adult patients newly diagnosed with endogenous CushingÂ’s Syndr...
