Dramatic resolution of a pituitary macroadenoma: non-functioning or prolactin-secreting?

Mohamed Mousa Abdusalam , Ashraf Tanveer , Lessan Nader

Background: Non-functioning pituitary tumours can be associated with a modestly elevated prolactin. Response to dopamine agonist therapy in such cases is unusual. Large macroprolactinomas are associated with much higher prolactin levels and respond well to dopamine agonists.Case: We report a 41-year-old man with a pituitary macroadenoma associated with an elevated prolactin of around 2000mIU/l who developed marked resolution in his pituitary MRI images r...

Rhabdomyolysis precipitated acute renal injury during levothyroxine withdrawal for remnant ablation in a case with papillary thyroid cancer

Mousa Umut , Koseoglulari Osman , Sav Hasan

Ever since the approval of recombinant human TSH (rhTSH) prior to remnant ablation and whole body scans, usage of levothyroxine withdrawal for TSH elevation is decreasing. However the readily unavailability of rhTSH in some countries and the cost are its disadvantages. Withdrawal of levothyroxine, however, exposes the subjects to hypothyroidism.A 26-year-old male patient admitted to our hospital for a routine checkup with no symptoms. His TSH level was 7...

Stimulated serum Tg ≥0.285 ng/ml in anti-Tg(−) cases had 3.087 times increased likelihood of recurrence of differentiated thyroid cancer: a single center experience

Yikilmaz Aysun Senturk , Mousa Umut , Nar Asli

Thyroid cancers constitute 2% of all cancer cases most of which are differentiated. Tumor size, lymph node metastases and thyroglobulin levels (Tg) in the follow-up period are among the major factors responsible for recurrence. In this study, we aimed to review our series of differentiated thyroid cancers and establish the risks of recurrence.This study was carried out through a retrospective analysis of 393 differentiated thyroid cancer cases that were ...
