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 ...

GA/GG Heterozygosity of ARG280HIS polymorphism in XRCC1 GENE: Genetic susceptibility genotype in differentiated thyroid cancer?

Kirnap Nazli Gulsoy , Tutuncu Neslihan Bascil , Yalcin Yaprak , Verdi Hasibe , Nar Asli , Atac Belgin

Background: Thyroid carcinomas are the most frequent endocrine malignancies of which more than nighty percent are differentiated thyroid carcinomas (DTC). It’s known that genetic variation plays 75% role in the development of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC).Material and methods: In a case control setting subjects between January 2005 and December 2015 were evaluated for inclusion in the study. We aimed to compare the genotype frequency distributio...

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.</...

N-terminal pro B type natriuretic peptide levels in thyroid dysfunctions

Baser Husniye , Baser Salih , Kirnap Nazli Gulsoy , Sakaci Murat , Gursoy Gul

Introduction: Aminoterminal pro B type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) is the inactive degradation product of pro BNP. Thyroid diseases are known to have effect on NT-pro BNP levels. In this study, we aimed to determine possible changes in NT-pro BNP levels in patients with thyroid dysfunctions.Material and method: Fifteen patients with hyperthyroidism, 8 with subclinical hyperthyroidism, 12 with hypothyroidism, 15 with subclinical hypothyroidism and 35...

Introduction: Elevated depressive symptoms and depressive disorders affect one in four patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes (1). Thus, routine screening for depressive symptoms is indicated in this high-risk population. Current guidelines all recommend screening for depression in diabetic population(2). The Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) is a valid screening tool for depression in individuals with diabetes (3). There is no specific data about the prevalence of depre...

Triglyceride-Glucose index levels in patients with congenital hypogonadism

Demirci Ibrahim , Haymana Cem , Demir Orhan , Kirnap Nazli Gulsoy , Meric Coskun , Sonmez Yusuf Alper , Gulcelik Nese Ersoz , Aydogdu Aydogan , Azal Omer

Introduction: It is well known that patients with hypogonadism are at increased risk for insulin resistance and cardiovascular diseases. In many studies homeostatic model assessment-insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) formulation is used for the evaluation of insulin resistance. Recently, a simple and inexpensive approach to evaluate for insulin resistance has been developed, the Triglyceride – Glucose (TyG) index. This particular index is based on measuring the levels of fastin...
