Giant Cystic Asymptomatic Pheochromocytoma

Kanburoglu Meletli Ozlem , Birinci Cigdem , Bilginer M. Cuneyt , Coskun Hulya , Nuhoglu Irfan , Ucuncu Ozge , Kocak Mustafa

Introduction: Giant and cystic catecholamine-secreting tumors are usually asymptomatic and detected incidentally during imaging. A simple mobilization of the tumor can cause the release of catecholamines into the blood and is therefore associated with high morbidity and mortality. Here, we aimed to present a patient with a 13 cm mass in the left adrenal gland and diagnosed as giant cystic pheochromocytoma.Case Report: A 62-year-old male patient presented...

Autonomic Cortisol-Secreting Adrenal Mass Containing Extramedullary Hematopoiesis Foci

Kanburoglu Meletli Ozlem , Birinci Cigdem , Bilginer M. Cuneyt , Coskun Hulya , Nuhoglu Irfan , Ucuncu Ozge , Kocak Mustafa

Introduction: Extramedullary hematopoiesis (EMH) is most commonly seen in reticuloendothelial system tissues such as liver, spleen and lymph nodes. Rarely, it can be detected in non-hepatosplenic atypical localizations such as the adrenal glands. Although the underlying mechanism is not clearly elucidated, it is suggested that the adrenal glands have hematopoietic activity in the fetal period and EMH may develop from the remains here due to chronic anemia. We aimed to present ...

A Rare Complication of Diabetes: Hemiballism Syndrome Associated with Non-ketotic Hyperglycemia

Meletli Ozlem Kanburoglu , Birinci Cigdem , Cuneyt Bilginer M. , Coskun Hulya , Nuhoglu Irfan , Ucuncu Ozge , Kocak Mustafa

Introduction: Hemiballism is a rare hyperkinetic movement disorder characterized by involuntary, violent, coarse and wide-amplitude movements involving the ipsilateral arm and leg. Here, we aimed to present a case diagnosed as hemiballism due to non-ketotic hyperglycemia.Case Report: A 60-year-old female patient presented to the emergency department with involuntary movements in the right half of the trunk for 10 days. It was a large amplitude proximal e...

A Rare Case; Ectopic ACTH Syndrome Caused by Metastatic Germ Cell Tumor

Meletli Ozlem Kanburoglu , Birinci Cigdem , Bilginer Cuneyt , Coskun Hulya , Nuhoglu Irfan , Ucuncu Ozge , Kocak Mustafa

Introduction: Although ectopic ACTH syndrome (EAS) is most commonly seen in cancers with neuroendocrine differentiation, it is not a common condition in germ cell tumors. Here we report a rare case of EAS due to metastatic germ cell tumor.Case report: A 53-year-old male patient presented with fatigue, weakness, swelling in both legs and weight loss for 3 months. He had type 2 diabetes and no history of smoking or alcohol. In the physical examination, the...

Pituitary apoplexy in cabergoline-resistant macroprolactinoma

Meletli Ozlem Kanburoglu , Birinci Cigdem , Bilginer M. Cuneyt , Coskun Hulya , Nuhoglu Irfan , Ucuncu Ozge , Kocak Mustafa

Introduction: Pituitary apoplexy is a life-threatening clinical syndrome that develops as a result of bleeding or infarction in a pituitary adenoma. Here, we aimed to present a case of cabergoline-resistant macroprolactinoma who developed pituitary apoplexy.Case Report: A 40-year-old male patient presented to neurology 2 years ago with severe headache. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a 15.5×18×21 mm macroadenoma in the pituitary...

Suprasellar Germinoma with Hypopituitarism and Central Diabetes Insipidus

Kanburoglu Meletli Ozlem , Birinci Cigdem , Cuneyt Bilginer M. , Coskun Hulya , Nuhoglu Irfan , Ucuncu Ozge , Kocak Mustafa

Introduction: Germinomas, which are the most common germ cell tumors of the central nervous system, may present with different symptoms depending on the location and are localized in the 20-30% suprasellar region. Here, we aimed to present a case of suprasellar germinoma with central diabetes insipidus, hypogonadism and secondary adrenal insufficiency.Case Report: A 27-year-old male patient presented with dry mouth, polydipsia, polyuria and nocturia for ...

A patient with thyroid lymphoma diagnosed during follow-up with benign thyroid nodule

Birinci Cigdem , Coskun Hulya , Ucuncu Ozge , Bilginer Cuneyt , Kanburoglu Meletli Ozlem , Kocak Mustafa , Nuhoglu Irfan

Objectives: Primary thyroid lymphoma constitutes 0.5-5% of all thyroid malignancies. Its incidence is two per million persons. Patients usually present with rapidly growing masses in the thyroid their sixth-seventh decades. The disease is frequently accompanied by chronic Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Most tumors are B-cell derived non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.Case report: An 84-year-old male patient presented with a palpable swelling in the neck. Ultraso...

Triple X syndrome (47, XXX) with infertility and obesity

Kocak Mustafa , Erem Cihangir , Nuhoglu Irfan , Celep Figen , Ucuncu Ozge , Karagulle Mustafa , Ersoz H Onder

Background: Triple-X (Trisomy X) is found in approximately 1 per 1000 females. Mental retardation is the most common feature in triple-X females. Women with Triple X usually are fertile, but they sometimes get the menopause earlier than other women. They are not generally phenotypically abnormal. Although reproductive organs, pubertal development, and fertility are normal in most cases. Some are first identified in infertility clinics, others in institutions for the mentally r...

Prolactinoma in east-black sea Turkey: a description of 51 cases

Ucuncu Ozge , Nuhoglu Irfan , Kocak Mustafa , Erem Cihangir , Bahat Kubra Aydin , Ersoz H Onder

PRL hypersecretion is the most common endocrine abnormality due to hypothalamic–pituitary disorders. PRL is the hormone most commonly secreted in excess by pituitary adenomas. Patients usually present with oligo-amenorrhea, galactorrhea, loss of libido, impotence and infertility. If the tumor extends outside of the sella, visual deficit or other mass effects may be seen.A retrospective study was performed during the period 1999–2008. The diagno...
