Introduction: Hypertension is a very common chronic disease worldwide. Its imbalance is one of the main causes of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative complications.Patients and Methods: We collected data from hypertensive patients who voluntarily presented for screening on both diabetes and hypertension screening days.Poor blood pressure control was defined as systolic blood pressure (SBP) greater than or equal to 140 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressur...

Segregation of S292F TPO gene mutation in three large Tunisian families with thyroid dyshormonogenesis: evidenceof a founder effect

Ghorbel Dorra , Hadjkacem Faten , Mnif Fatma , Loukil Fatma , Mnif Mouna , Elleuch Noura , Abid Mohamed

We aimed to identify causal mutation(s) in 13 patients with thyroid dyshormonogenesis (TD) from three consanguineous Tunisian families. A 12-year clinical follow-up showed phenotypic variability ranging from the presence to the absence of goiter, sensorineural deafness, and mental retardation. Genetic analysis using microsatellite markers within two candidate genes (TPO and PDS) gave evidence of linkage with the TPO gene. Sequencing of its 17 exons and their flanking intron-ex...

Mouna Elleuch , Ghamgui Wissal , Kacem Faten Hadj , Souhir Maalej , Mouna Mnif , Fatma Mnif , Nadia Charfi , Nabila Rekik , Mohamed Abid

Introduction: Anemia is defined by the World Health Organization as a hemoglobin concentration less than 120 g/l in women outside of pregnancy, and less than 130 g/l in men over 15 years of age. It is common in diabetics. It can be due to an autoimmune disease associated with type 1 diabetes, whereas the inflammatory cause is the primary cause in type 2 diabetes.Observation: This is a 75 year old patient, type 2 diabetic for 21 years on insulin analogues...

Elleuch Mouna , Loukil Fatma , Mnif Fatma , Salah Dhouha Ben , Hadjkacem Faten , Mnif Mouna , Charfi Nedia , Rekik Nabila , Abid Mohamed

Intoduction: Pitiutary tumor is considered as the first etiology responsable of secondary hypopituitarism. Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism is the most commonly reported lesion.Meterials and methods: It is a retrospective study including 77 cases of prolactinoma. The data collection was done over 17 years, between 2000 and 2017.Results: Gonadotropic deficiency was confirmed in 48 patients (63.6%). A significant negative correlation wa...

IntroductionThe association of type 1 diabetes with other autoimmune diseases is well known due to a common genetic terrain of varied clinical expressions. However, the occurrence of systemic diseases in diabetic patient, whatever the type of diabetes, is poorly studied. The objective of this study is to describe autoimmune and inflammatory diseases associated with diabetes.Materials and methodsIt ’ s a ...

Analysis of clinical and biological features of non-functioning pituitary adenomas: A retrospective study

Kacem Faten Hadj , Boujelben Khouloud , Imene Ghariani , Salma Gdoura , Nadia Charfi , Mouna Mnif , Fatma Mnif , Nabila Rekik , Mohamed Abid

IntroductionNon-functioning pituitary adenomas (NFPA) present approximately 15% to 30% of all pituitary adenomas. They are most commonly misdiagnosed, until they are large enough to lead to mass effect and hypopituitrasm. The present study was carried out with the aim of studying the clinical and biological characteristics of patients who are followed for NFA.Patients and methodsThis is a retrospective study ...

Elleuch Mouna , Frikha Hamdi , Fatma Loukil , Salah Dhoha Ben , Souissi Matiem , Mnif Fatma , Mnif Mouna , Charfi Nadia , Majdoub Nabila Rekik , Akid Faten Haj Kacem , Abid Mohamed

Introduction and aim: Dopamine agonists (DA) are prescribed as first-line treatment for prolactinomas and are generally effective and well tolerated. However, the degree and quickness of therapeutic response is variable among patients. The aim of this work is to study the predictive factors of biological remission in patients with prolactinoma treated with DA. Methods: A single-center, retrospective and analytical study of patients with prolactinoma foll...
