Nontraumatic rhabdomyolysis is mostly caused by drugs, alcohol consumption or compression of muscles. Severe hyperosmolarity rarely can cause rhabdomyolysis. Our case has santral diabetes insipidus that has admitted with the clinical picture of rhabdomyolysis.Case: Twenty-six-years old male has admitted to our clinic with the complaint of weakness, nausea, vomitting, polydipsia, polyuria, difficulty in walking and tendency to sleep.

Intima–media thickness measurement of the carotid artery in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism

Tuzun Dilek , Oguz Ayten , Sahin Murat , Ganidagli Safa Ersen , Atay Didem , Bolat Hanife , Cabioglu Cansu Yilmaz , Celik Ahmet , Gul Kamile

Aim: The intima–media thickness (IMT) measurement of the common carotid artery is recognised as an important marker of systemic atherosclerosis. It may be useful in predicting the cardiovascular events, since it is related to the severity of coronary artery disease. The aims of this study were to analyse whether correlations exist between the IMT of the common carotid artery and the main clinical and biochemical parameters in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP...

Aim: In this study, we aimed to determine the strain index (SI) as well as the ES scoring of thyroid nodules, and establish the role for these parameters in the differential diagnosis of thyroid nodules using histopathological analysis as a reference standart.Materials and method: Real-time ES in transverse axis (TA) and longitudinal exis (LA) was performed in 391 nodules of 292 patients. ES scoring was made for all the nodules. SI in TA and LA was calcu...
