Prevalence of autoimmune thyroid diseases in patients with prolactinomas and non-functioning pituitary adenomas

Hajizada Aytan , Oruk Gonca

AimProlactinoma, which is the most important cause of hyperprolactinemia, is an adenoma that originates from lactotropic cells of the pituitary and causes excessive prolactin release. Besides various physiological effects, the immunoregulatory effect of prolactin and its role in the development of autoimmune diseases are well known. The thyroid gland is one of the organs most frequently affected by autoimmunity. However, in our country, there are few stu...

Coincidence of subarachnoidal hemorrhage and pituitary apoplexy

Oruk Gonca , Apayadin Melda , Yilmaz Husnu , Yuceer Nurullah , Pamuk Baris

Pituitary apoplexy is a rare and life-threatening disorder often requiring emergency neurosurgical intervention to preserve vision and prevent cerebral herniation syndrome. Infarction or hemorrhage of an enlarged pituitary gland or pituitary tumor is the most common cause of pituitary apoplexy. Early recognition of this disorder is essential for preventing permanent visual loss or death; however, pituitary apoplexy often mimics subarachnoid hemorrhage, which in some cases may ...

A rare case of resistance to thyroid hormone with recurrent papillary thyroid carcinoma

Kural Ragip Fatih , Oruk Gonca , Ersen Kural Gonca

BackgroundResistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) involves an altered tissue response to thyroid hormones. RTH is characterized by increased serum thyroid hormone (TH) levels with nonsuppressed serum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. Herein, we report a rare case of RTH with recurrent papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC).Patient findingsA 38-year-old female patient was admited to outpatient clinic for the ev...

Evaluation of metabolic profile and thyroid disease in non functional adrenal insidentaloma patients

Kural Ragip Fatih , Oruk Gonca , Kural Elif Ersen

AimNonfunctional adrenal incidentalomas (NFAI’s) are often associated with a high prevalence of insulin resistance (IR). The relationship between IR and thyroid diseases, as well as, thyroid cancer (TC) in patients with NFAI is not yet understood. The aim of this study is to determine the frequency of thyroid disease and TC in NFAI patients and to investigate any possible association of thyroid disease with IR and metabolic disturbances in NFAI pati...

Subacute thyroiditis cases increasing in pandemic: 2 cases of covid-19 associated subacute thyroiditis

Derya Sema Yaman Kalender , Gonca Oruk Guzide , Karakus Dilek

ObjectiveSubacute thyroiditis (SAT) was first described by Fritz De Quervain in 1904 and is generally a self-limiting disease causing pain, fever and temporary hyperthyroidism. It generally develops as a result of postviral inflammatory response following viral upper respiratory tract infections, and it has increased since the covid-19 pandemic in March 2020. We aim to present 2 SAT cases associated with COVID-19.Case Summary<p...

A rare cause of hypocalemia: familial hypoparathyroidism

Bahceci Mitat , Salgur Fusun , Tutuncuoglu Aliye Pelin , Yilmaz Husnu , Oruk Gonca

Background and aim: HDR syndrome, is a rare disease characterized with hypoparathyroidism, sensorineural deafness, and renal disease. Patients usually present with hypocalcaemia, tetany, or afebrile convulsions. Hearing loss is usually bilateral. Renal disease includes renal dysplasia, hypoplasia or aplasia. We report a Turkish family of HDR syndrome.Cases: A 56-year-old hypocalcemic deaf male patient and his daughter (25 years) and son (21 years) with h...

Evaluation of demographic data of patients with adrenal incidentalomas

Bahceci Mitat , Gorgel Ahmet , Tutuncuoglu Aliye Pelin , Oruk Gonca , Yilmaz Husnu

Background and aim: Adrenal incidentalomas are discovered incidentally. Incidence has been increasing proportionally to the use of radiographic imaging. We aimed to evaluate patients with adrenal incidentalomas demographically.Subjects and methods: This study was performed between January 2010 and February 2013. Total 320 patients (55.4±11.7 years) with adrenal incidentaloma (86 (26.8%) male (55.2±11.6 years) and 234 (73.1%) female (56.2±1...

Malignacy prevalance and related conditions in adrenal incidetaloma

Bahceci Mitat , Gorgel Ahmet , Tutuncuoglu Aliye Pelin , Oruk Gonca , Yilmaz Husnu

Background and aim: Incidence of adrenal incidentaloma is increasing proportionally to the use of radiographic imaging and there were two questions that whether malignant or functional. We aimed to evaluate patients with adrenal incidentalomas in terms of malignancy.Subjects and methods: This study was performed between 2010 and 2013. From 320 patients with adrenal incidentaloma, total 52 patients who underwent surgical intervetion were evaluated. Indica...

A Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) presenting with episodes of intermittent hypertension: Sarcomatoid type adrenocortical carcinoma

Gulec Yazır Merve , Cankurtaran Yılmaz , Gonca Oruk Guzide , Onder Pamuk Barış , Arıkan Etit Demet

Introduction: Adrenocorticalcarcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy with an aggressive prognosis, an incidance of 1–2 cases/million/year. It is the cause of 0.2% of all cancer deaths. It is seen in the 4th and 5th decades in adults and mostly unilateral and sporadic. Herein, we present a case of sarcomatoid type ACC which is symptomatic with mass compression and hypertansive attacks.Case presentation: A-52-year-old male was referred to our endocrinolog...

Patients with hypoparathyroidism may have sypmptoms consistent with physical, emotional and cognitive dysfunctions which may cause impaired quality of life (QOL). We included 266 patients (20–79 years; 231 women/35 men) who were being treated for hypoparathyroidism. They were taking conventional therapies for hypoparathyroidism; calcium, active vitamin D and magnesium when needed. We applied Beck Depression Scale, Anxiety Scale and SF-36 QOL scale to the patients. The et...
