Mohamed Ayan , Bashir Mahamud , Ramachandran Kirtanya , Etbinah Lubna , Mohammed Mohammed , Roy Juthi , Mlawa Gideon

Thyroid storm is rare life-threatening clinical manifestation of endocrine dysfunction originating from excess level of thyroid hormone leading to hypermetabolic state with an incidence of 0.57-0.76/1000,000. The increase demand of metabolic activity subsequently induces, palpitations, dyspnoea, exercise intolerance and congestive heart failure. Most common cardiovascular manifestation of thyroid storm is tachycardia and atrial fibrillation occurs in up to 15% of patients. In ...

Mohammed Mohammed , Mohamed Ayan , Mahamud Bashir , Abumedian Mohammed , Saeed Yousif , Musa Awadelgeed , Mlawa Gideon

Myxoedema Coma with NAFLD secondary to poorly controlled hypothyroidism. Myxoedema coma is defined as severe hypothyroidism leading to decreased mental status, hypothermia, and other symptoms related to slowing function in multiple organs. It can culminate in severe, longstanding hypothyroidism or be precipitated by acute stressors such as infection, and surgery in patients with poorly controlled hypothyroidism. Moreover, there is a strong correlation between poorly controlled...

Bashir Mahamud , Oyesanya Ayodeji , Mohammed Mohammed , Mohamed Ayan , Etbinah Lubna , Ramachandran Kirtanya , Mlawa Gideon

Background: Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2 is an autoimmune disorder that affects many hormone-producing (endocrine) glands. It is characterized by the presence of AddisonÂ’s disease along with autoimmune thyroid disease and/or type 1 diabetes. The initial presentation can be varied but some patient maybe present with subclinical hypothyroidism and later develop Addisonian crisis. The pathogenesis of Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2 remains unclear, altho...

Pituitary Tumours and Learning Difficulties-An Association or Incidental Finding?

Bashir Mahamud , Etbinah Lubna , Oyesanya Ayodeji , Ramachandran Kirtanya , Mohammed Mohammed , Karaca Anara , Mlawa Gideon

Introduction: Pituitary tumours one of the most commonly occurring intracranial neoplasms accounting for up to the 15 % of all intracranial neoplasms. Pituitary tumours are often associated with overproduction of hormones or, when they are large, they cause mass effect on surrounding neural structures which are adjacent to their typical location in the Sella turcica. Due to their multifaceted effects pituitary tumours may cause cognitive impairment due hormonal deficiency or m...

A Case of Myxoedema Coma Presenting as Suspected Angioedema with Confusion

Jatinder Hayre , Etbinah Lubna , Mohamed Ayan , Mahamud Bashir , Tam Karen , Mohammed Ahmed , Nikookam Khash , Mohammed Mohammed , Mlawa Gideon

Background: Myxoedema coma although uncommon can be life-threatening in patients who are poorly compliant with levothyroxine replacement. Some of the precipitating factors include intercurrent respiratory infection, use of sedatives, and electrolyte imbalance such as hyponatremia(Wiersinga 2018). A 73-year-old man presented to the Hospital with face and tongue swelling, shortness of breath, and type 2 respiratory failure. His past medical history includes hypothyroidism, Obstr...

Khan Alaina , Lowe Miriam , Hayat Maisha , Ahuja Sanjali , English Robert , Hamid Kedir , Saleem Muhammad , Mahamud Bashir , Mohamed Ayan , Ramachandran Kirtanya , Mohammed Mohammed , Mlawa Gideon

Introduction: Amiodarone is a highly effective drug, used for the treatment of arrhythmias. However, it can cause either hypothyroidism or thyrotoxicosis. It leads to alterations in thyroid gland function or thyroid hormone metabolism, due to its high iodine content. Amiodarone-induced hypothyroidism is common in countries with high iodine dietary intake, and Amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis is more prevalent in regions with low iodine dietary intake. A large amount of iodide...
