Increased levels of bisphenol a in euthyroid autoimmun thyroiditis

Ademoglu Esra , Keskin Muge , Gorar Suheyla , Carlioglu Ayse

Introduction: Autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT), also called Hashimoto thyroiditis or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is characterized by destruction of the thyroid gland involving apoptosis of thyroid epithelial cells. It usually presents as euthyroidism or subclinically hypothyroidism, rarely as overt hypothyroidism. The cause of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is thought to be a combination of genetic susceptibility and environmental factors. Bisphenol A (BPA), an endocrine-disrupt...

İntroduction: Gitelman syndrome is characterized with hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, hypocalciuria, metabolic alkalosis and neurological symptoms like muscle weakness. The association of GS and type 1 diabetes is rare, only described in a few case reports. We report a patient with unusual combination of Gitelman syndrome, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus whose presentation was erytrocytosis.Case: A 26-year old male was diagnosed as Gitelman’s syndrome 5...

Ince Nurcan , Serdar Deniz Muzaffer , Keskin Muge , Dirikoc Ahmet , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

IntroductionPituitary gland tumors constitute approximately 10–15% of primary brain tumors, and posterior pituitary tumors are extremely rare. Granular cell tumor (GCT) is a low grade non-neuroendocrine neoplasm. Here, we will present our case who was found to have GCT during follow-up of diabetes insipidus (DI).CaseA 23-year-old male patient applied to our outpatient clinic for routine control. 12 years...

Objectives: The novel coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) is the fastest-spreading disease worldwide, with over 380 million cases and 5 million deaths. The presence of diabetes mellitus (DM) in patients with COVID-19 was associated with mortality, acute respiratory distress syndrome, disease progression. COVID-19 was progressed with some hematological disorders, especially lymphopenia. Studies implicated that neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) level can be a reliable marker ...

Aydin Unsal , Culha Cavit , Aktas Aynur , Keskin Muge , Ozcan Muge , Karaca Anara , Omma Tulay , Gulcelik Nese Ersoz , Koc Gonul , Aral Yalcin

Pentraxin 3 (PTX3) is produced from several cell types in case of inflammation. PTX3 has been investigated in several autoimmune diseases. As Hashimoto disease is an autoimmune disease of thyroid, we investigated the role of PTX3 levels in patients with Hashimoto disease.Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between PTX3 and autoimmune thyroiditis.Methods: The study subjects were classified as four gr...
