Gumuscu Hasan Huseyin , Onbasi Kevser , Kasifoglu Nilgun

Parvovirus (Erythrovirus) B19 (EVB19) infection may trigger autoimmune diseases like SLE, RA, and vasculitis. Parvovirus B19 belongs to the parvoviridae family and to the erythrovirus genus. The etiopathogenesis of autoimmune diabetes mellitus could not been explained yet. The aim of our study was to investigate whether EVB19 may have a role in the etiopathogenesis of type 1 DM. Therefore have we examined whether EVB19 is more frequent among type 1 diabetics. 32 patients with ...

May erythrovirus (parvovirus) B19 trigger autoimmune thyroid diseases?

Ucgun Serdar , Onbasi Kevser , Kasifoglu Nilgun

: Erythrovirus (EVB19) can recognize auto-antigens by using molecular mimicry mechanisms. EVB 19 is accused in the pathogenesis of many autoimmune diseases. Especially EVB19 is very important in the pathogenesis of autoimmune thyroid diseases. Thus in some case presentations; it was shown that EVB19 might be related with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Although etiopathogenesis of Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is not known exactly; they are thought to occ...

A 27 year-old-man was admitted to our hospital with pain in the back. Bone mineral density evaluation revealed severe osteoporosis at L1–L4 vertebrae, as well as on femur, too. Secondary osteoporosis reasons like thyrotoxicosis, glucocorticoid therapy, hypercortisolemia, hypercalciuria, hyperparathyroidism were excluded. Laboratory examination of the patient revealed to a hypoglobulinemia. Further evaluation of the immunoglobulin levels were in concordance with panhypoglo...

Onbasi Kevser , Hatipoglu Hasan , Ucgun Serdar , Hatipoglu Mujgan

Introduction: Subacute thyroiditis (SAT) is a self-limiting thyroid disease associated with a triphasic clinical course of hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and return to normal thyroid function. The well-known clinical features of SAT include thyroid pain with symptoms of hyperthyroidism, suppressed level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), low thyroid uptake of radioactive iodine, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. Diagnosis is based on clinical and laboratory dat...

Thyroid cancer is the most common cancer in the endocrine system. Thyroid follicular epithelial-derived cancers are papillary, follicular, and anaplastic cancer. Risk factors for differentiated cancers are radiation exposure, and family history. Possible risk factors like occupational and environmental exposures, increased parity, late age at first pregnancy, and hepatitis C-related chronic hepatitis are potential but not proven risk factors. In order to evaluate other potenti...
