A life threatening manifestation of severe hypothyroidism

Seshadri Shyam , Nata Raja

A 29 year old lady with a past history of seronegative rheumatoid arthritis, Vitamin B12 deficiency, autoimmune hypothyroidism and fibromyalgia who had feeling unwell with a left sided headache for a few days had a fall at home witnessed by her friend. She was noted to be in peri arrest state by ambulance crew on their arrival. Agonal breathing was noted and monitor revealed VF. She was given 5 DC shocks with return of spontaneous circulation and regained consciousness. She wa...

Ultrasound guided percutaneous laser ablation of thyroid nodules

Bajuk Nataša Bedernjak , Gaberscek Simona , Pirnat Edvard , Zaletel Katja

Background: Thyroid nodule is the most common endocrine disorder with the prevalence of more than 50% in adults. Majority of nodules are small in size and can be detected only by various imaging methods. Thyroid nodules are usually benign, asymptomatic, and do not need treatment. Growing and large symptomatic thyroid nodules are usually treated with thyroidectomy. Novel minimally invasive ablation techniques can be alternative to surgery. Percutaneous laser ablation is causing...

A case of reversible Brugada syndrome with severe hypothyroidism

Seshadri Shyam , Nata Raja , Hadaddin Firas , Thomas Manoj , Swords Frankie

A 23-year-old gentleman with a 9-month history of extreme tiredness, muscle aches and pains, weight gain, cold intolerance and constipation presented to hospital with severe lethargy and dizziness and vacant episodes of increasing frequency. Initial examination revealed him to have a pulse rate of around 66 beats per minute. He was haemodynamically stable. A resting ECG showed an elevated ST segment of more than 2 mm with descent to an upward convexity to an inverted T wave es...

Elastography in the assessment of cold solid thyroid nodules

Bedernjak Bajuk Nataša , Bajuk Studen Katica , Pirnat Edvard , Gaberscek Simona , Zaletel Katja

Introduction: The prevalence of thyroid nodules detected by ultrasound (US) is up to 50% in general population and approximately 5−10% of them is malignant. Diagnostic assessment includes laboratory tests thyroid US and thyroid scintigraphy, where suspicious nodules are characteristically cold when using99m Tc-pertechnetate as a tracer. A useful tool for US-based risk stratification of thyroid nodules is Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS). Rece...

Incidence of non-diagnostic and undetermined cytologies in ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy specimens of thyroid nodules – a single-center cohort

Vendramin Andreja , Zupanc Davorin , Pirnat Edvard , Zaletel Katja , Bedernjak Bajuk Nataša , Bajuk Studen Katica , Jesenko Miha , Gaberšček Simona

Objectives: Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a commonly performed diagnostic procedure for evaluation of thyroid nodules. The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology comprises six categories. Bethesda categories I and III present a challenge for deciding on further diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Category I includes non-diagnostic or unsatisfactory results that may be due to both aspiration of cystic material from simple cysts or asp...

Paraneoplastic hypoglycemia in a patient with recurrent pleural tumor

Joksimović Nata , Ćirić Jasmina , Beleslin Biljana , Stojković Mirjana , Miletić Marija , Stojanović Miloš , Žarković Miloš

Background: Solitary fibrous tumor of pleura represents a prototypical mesenchymal neoplasm that induces non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia due to overproduction of insulin-like growth factor 2, named Dodge Potter syndrome.Case Presentation: An 86-year-old man, non-diabetic, was admitted to hospital with a few months history of repetitive hypoglycemic symptoms and documented low blood glucose of 1.9 and 1.2 mmol/L on two occasions when he lost consciousne...

The effects of aging on thyroid C-cells in male rats

Filipović Branko , Ajdžanović Vladimir , Živanović Jasmina , Manojlović-Stojanoski Milica , Trifunovć Svetlana , Nestorović Nataša , Šošić-Jurjević Branka

Thyroid C-cells, as a second type of endocrine cell population within thyroid, produce and secrete peptide hormone calcitonin (CT). This hypocalcemic hormone acts as an inhibitor of bone resorption. The aging is a complex process that alters various cellular functions. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the aging-related changes in the structure and function of CT-producing thyroid C-cells in male Wistar rats, using histomorphometric, ultrastructural and biochemic...

Salmon calcitonin affects thyroid endocrine cells and trabecular bone in a rat model of male osteoporosis

Filipović Branko , Šošić-Jurjević Branka , Živanović Jasmina , Manojlović-Stojanoski Milica , Nestorović Nataša , Trifunović Svetlana , Jarić Ivana , Ušćebrka Gordana , Milošević Verica

Calcitonin (CT) is a hypocalcemic hormone produced by thyroid C-cells that acts as an bone antiresorptive agent. The other endocrine cell population in thyroid, called follicular cells produce thyroid hormones (TH) which also affect bone turnover. In this study, we evaluated the effects of salmon CT administration on structure and function of both CT and TH producing thyroid cells as well as trabecular bone microarchitecture in orchidectomized (Orx) middle-aged rats. Fifteen-m...

Age-associated changes of fast-twitch skeletal muscle fibers in male rats

Filipović Branko , Šošić-Jurjević Branka , Trifunovć Svetlana , Ristic Natasa , Manojlović-Stojanoski Milica , Nestorović Nataša , Ajdžanović Vladimir

Aging process is accompanied by structural and functional changes in different organs including bone and muscle tissues. Between these tissues there is a mutual interaction mediated by endocrine factors such as the peptide hormone osteocalcin, produced by osteoblasts. Since the skeletal muscles is composed of two basic fiber types, slow-twitch (type I) and fast-twitch (type II), the aim of this study was to examine the age-related changes in rat fast-twitch skeletal muscle fib...
