Giant pheochromocytoma: wich management?

Ijdda Sara , Sana Rafi , El Mghari Ghizlane , Nawal El Ansari

Introduction: Malignant pheochromocytomas present a real challenge for practitioners. This entity of tumors is rare, with complex characterization, and heterogenocity in their evolution and prognosis. Given the rarity of this tumor group, there is no consensus on the therapeutic management. The management must be in a multidisciplinary framework. Through this illustrative case, we propose a literature review of this rare entity with discussion of the different therapeutic opti...

Dyslipidemia and antiretroviral therapy: a case report

Ghizlane El Meghari , Meryam Elbahi , Sana Rafii , Nawal El Ansari

Introduction: The use of highly active antiretroviral therapy in 1996 helped greatly reduce the morbidity and mortality in patients infected by HIV. Very quickly, secondary metabolic complications to this same treatment have been described. Dyslipidemia occupy a large part of these complications and give the patients an atherogenic profile favouring the occurrence of acute coronary events. We report a case that illustrates the lipid abnormalities associated with anti retrovira...

The upper limb infection in diabetic patients (about 32 cases)

Nawal El Ansari , Bahia Habra , Ghizlane El Mghari

Introduction: The diabetic patient is vulnerable to infection compared to the general population. This is due to the deleterious effect of hyperglycemia on the basis of chemotaxis, phagocytosis and bactericide neutrophils → What weakens the defenses of the diabetic person to infections. Infections of the upper limb in diabetics are not uncommon, and are often characterized by severity and often unfavorable developments. The objective of this work: determine the prevalenc...

Autoimmune thyroiditis in patients with latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA)

Nawal El Ansari , Zaher Fatima Zahra , Elmghari Ghizlane

Introduction: Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) is an endocrine disorder characterized by a progressive destruction of pancreatic beta cells by an autoimmune mechanism leading to absolute insulin deficiency. In patients with an autoimmune endocrine disease, there is a high risk of development of another autoimmune endocrine disorder. The purpose of our work is to assess the prevalence of thyroid autoimmunity among our LADA patients.Patients and...
