Subthreshold cortisol deficiency-another ray in the spectrum?

Adamidou Foteini , Komzia Paraskevi , Kita Marina

Introduction: In Endocrinology, subclinical disorders meet certain diagnostic laboratory thresholds, but are by definition asymptomatic. Subthreshold disorders in Endocrinology have not been defined. We describe two cases of cortisol deficiency, primary and secondary, with normal baseline cortisol, which were by presentation clinical, but could be characterized as subthreshold by biochemical cut-off criteria.Case 1: A 47-year-old woman was referred for a...

rhPTH(1-84) treatment-induced increased bone turnover in a young woman with postsurgical hypoparathyroidism

Adamidou Foteini , Komzia Paraskevi , Mintziori Gesthimani , Kita Marina

Introduction: rhPTH(1-84) replacement is the treatment of choice in adults with hypoparathyroidism not adequately controlled on standard therapy. Although increased bone turnover markers have consistently been reported in trials of safety and efficacy, marked elevations coupled with significant symptoms have been rare. We describe a case of increased treatment-induced bone turnover, necessitating significant therapeutic adjustments and monitoring.Case re...

Response to classic dynamic tests of a corticotropinoma due to Nelson’s syndrome

Adamidou Foteini , Komzia Paraskevi , Divaris Efstathios , Panagiotou Athanasios , Kita Marina

Introduction: Nelson’s syndrome is a rare complication of Cushing’s disease treated with bilateral adrenalectomy. There is no effective medical treatment yet. Nelson’s patients respond to hypothalamic stimuli distinctly from patients with Cushing’s disease and those with Addison’s disease. We describe the responses to standard ACTH stimulation tests in a patient with Nelson’s syndrome.Case report: A 42-year-old woman present...

Discovery of a novel CASR mutation causing Familial Hypocalciuric Hypercalcemia in a Greek family

Efstathiadou Zoe , Kostoulas Charilaos , Rottstein Laurentana , Georgiou Ioannis , Kita Marina

Introduction: Familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH) causes lifelong hypercalcemia, which, in general, is not associated with significant morbidity. FHH1, the most common type of the disease, is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern and caused by inactivating mutations in the Calcium Sensing Receptor (CaSR) gene, located in chromosome 3. Inactivation of CaSR in parathyroid cells results in a shift of calcium set point to higher values with consequent...

True silent pheochromocytoma: description of a rare entity

Adamidou Fotini , Komzia Paraskevi , Mpatsi Ourania , Georgiou Thomas , Kita Marina

Introduction: With the advent of modern imaging, up to 30% of adrenal pheochromocytomas are discovered incidentally in asymptomatic patients. Smaller tumors may be ‘pre-biochemical’ in their secretory capacity, but truly nonfunctioning tumors over 3 cm are exceedingly rare. We describe a case of a clinically and biochemically silent pheochromocytoma.Case report: A 65-year-old woman was found to have a left adrenal incidentaloma on an abdominal ...

Atypical hyperthyroidism in a case of neutrophilic dermatosis (Sweet’s syndrome)

Adamidou Fotini , Komzia Paraskevi , Georgiou Thomas , Kita Marina

Introduction: Sweet’s syndrome is a rare, acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, associated with a variety of inflammatory and neoplastic conditions, drug reactions and rarely with a spectrum of thyroid dysfunction. A possible link between thyroid autoimmunity and Sweet’s syndrome has been previously suggested by rare reports of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, subacute thyroiditis and classic Graves’ disease. We describe a case of ‘atypical’ hyperthyroid...

Coexistence of primary hyperparathyroidism with papillary thyroid carcinoma: a case series

Anagnostis Panagiotis , Panagiotou Athanasios , Adamidou Fotini , Rafailidis Savvas , Kita Marina

Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) may rarely coexist with non-medullary thyroid carcinoma (NMTC). We report the clinical manifestation and management of nine cases of synchronous PH and NMTC.Cases: Eight women and one man were included (mean age at diagnosis: 64±6.6 years). In all cases, PH was the initial diagnosis, whereas NMTC was detected incidentally, after ultrasound assessment for PH. The histological diagnosis of NMTC was clas...

Fractures at post-partum and lactation: common presentation of different clinical entities

Efstathiadou Zoe , Sykja Albana , Panagiotou Athanasios , Kita Marina

Introduction: Osteoporosis of pregnancy and postpartum is a rare clinical entity, which usually presents with back pain, due to spine fractures. We aimed to describe four different cases presenting with back pain and fractures post-partum, in who, with diverse underlying pathophysiology, recovery time and treatments used.Case 1: A 32-year-old patient presented with intense back pain and difficulty in standing and walking, 2 weeks after delivery. She had ...

Incidental asplenia in a patient with presumed type 2 autoimmune polyglandular syndrome (APS-2): misclassification or overlap?

Georgiou Thomas , Adamidou Fotini , Mintziori Gesthimani , Kita Marina

Introduction: Asplenia has been reported in 10% of patients with type 1 APS (APS-1), but has never been reported in APS-2. We describe a patient with presumed APS-2 and aplenia.Case report: A 69-year-old woman was diagnosed with B12 deficiency with severe anemia at age 21 and insulin dependent diabetes mellitus at age 33, following routine testing. At 59, she was hospitalized with salt wasting and a diagnosis of Addison’s disease was made, which was...

Collision thyroid tumors among patients diagnosed with thyroid carcinomas

Mintziori Gesthimani , Adamidou Fotini , Selalmatzidou Despoina , Kita Marina

Introduction: Collision thyroid tumors are defined as independent and histologically distinct tumors that coexist within the thyroid gland. Collision thyroid tumors are rare and their prevalence is unknown.Methods: A retrospective, registry-based study was performed by reviewing the electronic medical records of the Department of Endocrinology, Ippokratio General Hospital of Thessaloniki, Greece. All patients with thyroidectomy and thyroid cancer diagnos...
