Awareness, treatment rates and compliance to treatment in patients with serum LDL cholesterol higher than 250 mg/dL, and possible, probable and definite familial hypercholesterolemia

Yaman Samet , Ozdemir Didem , Tugce Akman Busra , Cakir Bekir , Ersoy Osman

Aim: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal dominant genetic disease characterized by increased levels of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-chol). Despite relatively high prevalance and significant association with increased mortality, the awareness of physicians and patients is low and it is an underdiagnosed and undertreated disease. We aimed to detect patients with FH and determine treatment status and compliance.Materials and metho...

Case report: endoscopic ultrasonography can be used as an adjunctive procedure in atypically localized and conventional ultrasound negative parathyroid adenoma

Cuhaci Neslihan , Aydin Cevdet , Ersoy Osman , Yazgan Aylin Kilic , Kilinc Ibrahim , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: Ectopic and atypically localized parathyroid adenomas such as in the anterior mediastinum, paraesophageal or retrotracheal position, although rare, can be seen in clinical practice. Ultrasound (US) which is a frequently used and one of the best conventional imaging modality sometimes fails to identify the lesion especially in atypically localized adenomas. Endoscopic US (EUS) is a new technique that can be used for localization of parathyroid lesions. We reported...

Introduction: Xantoma disseminatum (XD) is a rare non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis (NLCH) which is often resistant to treatment. In this report, we presented a case with extensive cutaneous, hypothalamohypophysial, cerebral and gastrointestinal system involvement, which responded well to cyclophosphamide.Case: A 16-year-old female patient admitted to our hospital with the complaints of amenorrhoea, weight gain, polidipsia, poliuria, yellow-brownish papu...

Introduction: Common reasons of chronically elevated liver enzymes are; fatty liver associated with alcohol abuse or obesity, chronic viral hepatitis, autoimmune hepatitis, chronic bilier disease and hereditary metabolic disorders. Adrenocortical insufficiency can also cause elevated liver enzymes. Until now, there are few cases in the literature with abnormal liver function associated with Addison’s disease. We reported this case to kept mind the Addison’s disease w...

Akman Tugce , Topaloglu Oya , Altunoglu Alparslan , Neselioglu Salim , Erel Ozcan , Cakir Bekir , Ersoy Osman

AimEuthyroid Sick Syndrome (ESS) is a thyroid disease appeared in critical and noncritical illnesses. ESS can be seen in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD). In this study, we aimed to evaluate the frequency of ESS before and after renal transplantation in patients with ESRD, and its association with oxidative stress by evaluating thiol-disulphide levels.Material and MethodIn this study, free triiodo...

Ersoy Osman , Evranos Ogmen Berna , Burcak Polat Sefika , Ozturk Levent , Gumuskaya Ocal Berrak , Cakir Bekir , Ersoy Reyhan

Introduction: Upper gastrointestinal (UGI) symptoms are frequently encountered in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Some of these symptoms may improve after PHPT treatment, while hypercalcemic state may also cause permanent effects. We aimed to evaluate UGI symptoms, UGI endoscopic and pathologic features and determine the relationship between these features with serum chromogranin A (CgA) and gastrin in PHPT patients.Methods: Seventy-one...
