GnRH analog treatment in children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia complicated by central precocious puberty

Guven Ayla , Cebeci Ayse Nurcan , Hancili Suna

Introduction: In children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), central precocious puberty (CPP) may occur and this situation may compromise final height. We aimed to evaluate the effect of GnRH analog therapy (GnRHa-T) on growth in children with CAH.Design: Ten children with CAH were included in ongoing follow-up study. Nine children underwent GnRH stimulation test. GnRHa-T was used as 3.75 mg/q 4 weeks and the dose had to be increased to 7.5 mg/q ...

Addison disease in a patient with familial mediterranean fever

Ince Nurcan , Ceylan Ahmet , Erden Abdulsamet , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive hereditary disease characterized by fever and inflammation of serous membranes. The most important complication of FMF is amyloidosis which has significant role in the prognosis. It is unclear how endocrine system hormones are affected in FMF. We present adrenal insufficiency in a an FMF patient without amyloidosis.Case: A 39 years old male patient who had been diagnosed with FMF ...

Ince Nurcan , Houssein Mehdi , Bestepe Nagihan , Durmaz Himmet , Ozdemir Didem , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

IntroductionPituitary apoplexy is seen in 1.5–27.7% of pituitary adenomas. Common etiologies include hypertension, diabetes mellitus, radiotherapy, contrast-enhanced MR, surgery, drugs, anticoagulant, antithrombotic, estrogen, head trauma and pregnancy. SARS-CoV-2 had spread rapidly, and caused COVID-19 pandemic. Although it mainly causes respiratory problems, there may also be extrapulmonary involvement. COVID-19 infection is associated with hemorr...

Rare hypophysis tumor arising in a case with diabetes incipidus: Granular cell tumor

Ince Nurcan , Serdar Deniz Muzaffer , Keskin Muge , Dirikoc Ahmet , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

IntroductionPituitary gland tumors constitute approximately 10–15% of primary brain tumors, and posterior pituitary tumors are extremely rare. Granular cell tumor (GCT) is a low grade non-neuroendocrine neoplasm. Here, we will present our case who was found to have GCT during follow-up of diabetes insipidus (DI).CaseA 23-year-old male patient applied to our outpatient clinic for routine control. 12 years...

Calcitonin washout in the diagnosis of medullary thyroid cancer

Evranos Ogmen Berna , Ince Nurcan , Akdogan Leyla , Aksoy Altınboga Aysegul , Aydin Cevdet , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: Medullary thyroid cancers (MTC) originate from parafollicular C cells and constitute 3-5% of all thyroid cancers. Calcitonin (CT) measurement is useful in the diagnosis of MTC. The sensitivity and specificity of CT are low in the measurement alone, and the sensitivity and specificity increase when used with pentagastrin and calcium stimulation tests. However, the difficulty of accessing pentagastrin, the uncertainty of the cut-off value in calcium stimulation tests...

Comparison of biochemical values in asymptomatic and symptomatic urolithiasis

Ince Nurcan , Turan Kubra , Baser Husniye , Seyrek Neslihan Cuhacı , Ozdemir Didem , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: Primary Hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a common endocrine disorder that is characterized by hypercalcaemia and elevated or inappropriately normal serum levels of parathyroid hormone. Most often, the presentation of PHPT is asymptomatic. PHPT can manifest with osteoporosis and hypercalciuria as well as with vertebral fractures and nephrolithiasis, both of which can be asymptomatic. Our aim in this study; to determine the frequency of kidney stones in patients operate...

Association of ABO blood groups with diabetic microvascular complications

Faki Sevgul , Ince Nurcan , Ali Tam Abbas , Turan Erdogan Beril , Cuhacı Seyrek Neslihan , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: Micro vascular complications are the major outcome of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus progression, which reduces the quality of life and increases diabetic morbidity & mortality. As the incidence of type 2 diabetes is growing day by day; our search for its aetiology and pathogenesis is also ever growing to predict its risk factors and early screening for better care and prevention of its complications. Many studies have tried to link susceptibility of type 2 diabetes ...

Post-transplant dyslipidemia in two cases

Ince Nurcan , Durmus Bugra , Ozcelik Ozgur , Dirikoc Ahmet , Cevdet Aydın , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Bekir Cakır

IntroductionLung transplantation was associated with a 32% prevalence of hypercholesterolemia and a 41% prevalence of hypertriglyceridemia. The prevalence of dyslipidemia in liver transplant recipients is 43% and 31% –51%. In this report, we present 2 cases who developed dyslipidemia after transplantation.Case 1The blood test of a 73-year-old male patient who had lung transplantation about 3 years ago re...

Ultrasonographic features of thyroid nodules and thyroid gland in obese patients

Cuhacı Seyrek Neslihan , Ince Nurcan , Faki Sevgul , Baser Husniye , Tam Abbas Ali , Polat Şefika Burcak , Topaloglu Oya , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Objective: Thyroid nodules are one of the most common thyroid diseases. Ultrasonography is an reliable and the most commonly used imaging method in the evaluation of thyroid nodules with a high sensitivity (Sn) and specificity (Sp). The prevelance of obesity, especially severe obesity, is increasing at an alarming rate in the worldwide. Although obesity and thyroid disorders are related to each other, the pathological relationship between those is not clear. Several studies ha...

Management of primary hyperparathyroidism in pregnancy

Ince Nurcan , Helvaci Burçak , Özçelik Özgür , Kiliç Mehmet , Aydin Cevdet , Topaloglu Oya

Introduction: In pregnancy, the incidence of Primary Hyperparathyroidism is 1%; and there are 80% adenoma, 15% parathyroid hyperplasia, 3% multiple adenoma, and 1% parathyroid carcinoma in its etiology. In pregnancy, serum calcium (Ca) levels may not rise as much as expected. This is associated with hypoalbuminemia, GFR increase, placental Ca transfer, and inhibition of PTH–related bone resorption by estrogen. In pregnancy, hyperparathyroidism is asymptomatic at a rate o...
