A Rare Association of Thyroid Medullary Carcinoma with Paraneoplastic Cushing Syndrome: Effects of Multidisciplinary Approach

Alexandra Olariu Cristina , Marin Alexandra , Corneci Cristina , Badiu Corin

Introduction: Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) is a neuroendocrine tumor of the parafollicular or C cells of the thyroid gland. While thyroid cancer is increasingly common worldwide, MTC still has a low incidence. We present a case of a seventy-one-years-old woman who presented in our unit after an axillary adenopathy biopsy which tested sparsely positive for KeratinPan, CK7, CEA, TTF1, Chromogranin, Snaptophysin and calcitonin, focal positive for EMA, PAX8, Ki67 30%. Also multi...

Background: Head trauma of sufficient severity, particularly causing fracture to the skull base, can cause deficient secretion of anterior pituitary hormones and vasopressin. Severe hypopituitarism and diabetes insipidus (DI) are common post-traumatic events but they can recover 3 and 12 months afterwards.Objective: To report a case of a woman with post-traumatic hypopituitarism and DI after car accident.Case report: A 31 year old ...

Marin Alexandra , Mihai Daniel , Caragheorgheopol Andra , Badiu Corin

BackgroundCushing syndrome (CS) is caused by prolonged exposure to elevated cortisol levels and itÂ’s classified as either ACTH-dependent or ACTH independent CS. The most common form of endogenous ACTH CS is Cushing disease (CD); ACTH-independent CS is caused by various adrenal abnormalities. First-line therapy in CS is the resection of the underlying tumor in all cases. After surgical cure of CS, most patients develop transient secondary adrenal ins...

Gabriela Duta Simona , Bojoga Irina , Ruxandra Calapod Ioana , Marin Alexandra , Malinici Elisabeta , Ioacara Sorin , Fica Simona

Background: Type 1 diabetes is a chronic disease requiring constant management and a disciplined lifestyle, especially in children. Real-time continuous glucose monitoring system (RT-CGMS) can be a useful tool in maintaining good glycemic control. In our medical centre, beginning with January 2019, a National Program for free distribution of RT-CGMS has been set in motion. The results from one of our previous studies indicated a significant increase in glycosylated haemoglobin...
