Relevant therapies in PCOS

Sumarac-Dumanovic Mirjana

Although there are many phenotypes of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), we are mainly talking about three phenotypes: metabolic, hyperandrogenic and reproductive phenotype. Obesity and insulin resistance are the major determinants of the metabolic heterogeneity of patients with PCOS. Certain degree of hepatic insulin resistance exists in PCOS irrespective of obesity. In non-obese PCOS preserved insulin sensitivity in peripheral tissues exists. The presence of obesity is of g...

Relationship between change in glycemic parameters and body weight with IDegLira in type 2 diabetes

Risovic Ivona , Sumarac-Dumanovic Mirjana , Bojic Mirjana , Djekic Danijel

Introduction: IDegLira is the first fixed ratio combination of a basal insulin degludec and a glucagon-like peptide-receptor analogue liraglutide. These combination producereduction in glycated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and help to mitigate the weight gain. The aim of this study was to evaluate relationship between change in glycemic parameters and body weight in patients who began therapy with IDegLira.Patients and Methods: Retrospective study included 86 ...

Graves’ disease and thymic hyperplasia

Majic Ana , Pejic Mirjana Kardum , Pejic Josip

Background: The association between Graves’ disease and thymic hyperplasia is well documented in the literature. Despite that it remains largely unrecognized in routine clinical practice. The lack of familiarity of usually benign nature of thymic hyperplasia associated with Graves’ disease may result in an aggressive management course, along with associated risks.Case presentation: A previously healthy 32-year-old female was admitted to hospita...

Effects of antiandrogen therapy of cyproteron acetate on androgen effects on the skin including androgenetic alopecia in menopausal women - case report: 10 years follow up -

Tesic Dragan , Mitrovic Milena , Icin Tijana , Andric Dragica , Tomic Mirjana

Introduction: The term female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is commonly used synonymously with female androgenetic alopecia. While the the role of androgens and androgen receptor genes is well-defined in male androgenetic alopecia (AGA-M), its role in in the pathogenesis of FPHL is stil uncertain. More diffuse involvement, resulting in an oval-shaped alopecia surrounded by a rim of normal hair density (Luduig’s classification) might be a clinical challenge. The aim of case rep...

Falsely high serum calcitonin levels

Stojkovic Mirjana , Beleslin Biljana , Ciric Jasmina , Stojanovic Milos , Zarkovic Milos

Calcitonin is a polypeptide hormone synthesized and secreted by the parafollicular cells of the thyroid gland, and has been considered as a good marker for medullary thyroid carcinoma. But several physiologic and pathologic conditions other than medullary thyroid carcinoma have been associated with increased levels of calcitonin. A 39-year old woman was admitted to our hospital for further testing due to high calcitonin level (467 ng/L) measured by immunochemiluminometric assa...

Pituitary stalk lesions - experience of single center

Doknic Mirjana , Pekic Sandra , Miljic Dragana , Stojanovic Marko , Petakov Milan

Introduction: Lesions of the pituitary stalk (PSL) are a challenging diagnostic problem for clinicians. Because of the critical location and role of the pituitary stalk, mass lesions in this area are not often biopsied, and the diagnosis may be based on clinical evaluation and imaging. Due to biopsy risk, about 40% PSL diagnosis are ‘probable’ or ‘unknown’.The main clinical symptoms of PSL are visual field defect, DI and hypopituitarism.<p class="abstex...

What is in the sella while spying on cancer? The role of FDG–PET/CT in differential diagnosis of sellar mass during staging for malignant disease

Miljic Dragana , Pekic Sandra , Doknic Mirjana , Stojanovic Marko , Popovic Vera

Positron emission combined with computed tomography using 18F-deoxy-glucose (FDG–PET/CT) is increasingly used in the staging and detection of malignant disease. Normal pituitary is not visualized by routine FDG–PET/CT and its radiological evaluation relies predominantly on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The role of FDG–PET/CT in differential diagnosis of sellar mass, in patients investigated for malignant disease, will be discussed.<p class="ab...

A call for cardiologists and diabetologists to embrace neurological investigation for diabetic neuropathy in cardiovascular risk stratification

Tesic Dragan , Andric Dragica , Mitrovic Milena , Vukovic Bojan , Tomic Mirjana

Background: In the 2019 ESC Guidelines on diabetes, pre-diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, only retinopathy appears as a target organ damage as a parameter for stratification patients into very high-risk group. The aim of study was to check the strength of association between DN and isolated DR groups with cardiovascular complications.Methods: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) was defined by eGFR ≤ 59 ml/min/1.73 m2 and proteinuria (P...

Acquired nonreversible hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and impaired wound healing in diabetic foot syndroma of type 2 diabetic patient - Case series

Tesic Dragan , Icin Tijana , Mitrovic Milena , Andric Dragica , Tomic Mirjana

Introduction: The fact that up to 33% with type 2 diabetes develop hypogonadotropic hypogonadisms (HH), are still not catching enough attention. More futher ’’the 5-year mortality of somebody who has got diabetes, who has had a myocardial infarction is actually lower than the diabetic patient who has developed a diabetic foot ulcer, which is around 48%’’.Case description: We describe male patient, 47 y. (on 2016y), newly diagnosed...

Serum GH but not IGF1 levels correlate with body composition parameters in both men and women with active acromegaly

Stojanovic Marko , Miljic Dragana , Pekic Sandra , Doknic Mirjana , Popovic Vera

Introduction: Generously supported by IPSEN)-->Active acromegaly is reported to be associated with considerable body composition changes, with significant lean body mass changes found only in men.Patients and methods: In patients with active acromegaly (n=40) 24 females and 16 males, 48.9±6.4 years old, with BMI of 28.04±1.27 kg/m2, diagnosed 4.15±1.09 years ago, body composit...
