Reevaluation of the 1-mg overnight low-dose dexamethasone suppression test in the diagnosis of Cushing’s syndrome

Chehaider Cyrine , Oueslati Ibtissem , Terzi Amani , Yazidi Meriem , Chihaoui Melika

Introduction: The 1-mg overnight low-dose dexamethasone suppression test is used as a screening tool when CushingÂ’s syndrome is suspected. However, the biological confirmation of this syndrome is based upon the measurement of 24-hour urinary free cortisol and low-dose dexamethasone suppression test (Liddle test). The aim of this study was to assess the performance of the 1-mg overnight low-dose dexamethasone suppression test in the diagnosis of CushingÂ’s syndrome.</p...

Prevalence and predictive factors of factitious hypoglycemia in non-diabetic patients

Terzi Amani , Oueslati Ibtissem , Yazidi Meriem , Kamoun Elyes , Chihaoui Melika

Introduction: Spontaneous hypoglycemia in non-diabetic patients is a rare metabolic emergency caused by multiple etiologies. Factitious hypoglycemia, a form of the Munchausen syndrome, is defined as the surreptitious use of insulin or oral hypoglycemic agents to deliberately induce self-harm. It is one of the most challenging diagnoses associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and the associated factors of factitiou...

Levothyroxine absorption test results in patients with resistant hypothyroidism

Grassa Anis , Oueslati Ibtissem , Kamoun Elyes , Yazidi Meriem , Chihaoui Melika

Introduction: Hypothyroidism is a very common condition, and its treatment is relatively easy with levothyroxine (LT4). However, cases of resistant hypothyroidism were reported despite high doses of levothyroxine. The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of the levothyroxine absorption test to confirm or exclude a disorder of thyroid hormone absorption.Methods: This was a retrospective study including patients who were admitted to our departm...

Prevalence and factors associated with arrythmia in patients with hyperthyroidism

Madhi Wiem , Ezzaouia Khaled , Yazidi Meriem , Oueslati Ibtissem , Chihaoui Melika

Introduction: Thyroid hormones represent a biomarker of heart rhythm disorders and pathophysiological origins remain unknown. Some of these disorders like atrial fibrillation (AF) are major issues particularly in asymptomatic patients with in Hyperthyroidism and cause of thromboembolic complications.Aim: Taking into account the uncertainty of prevalence of cardiac rhythm disorders, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of rhythmic cardiac complications ...

A case of pituitary hyperplasia in a patient with neurofibromatosis type 1.

Cherchir Faten , Oueslati Ibtissem , Yazidi Meriem , Chihaoui Melika

Introduction: Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant disorder with diverse manifestations. Patients with NF1 are particularly prone to developing tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) and endocrine disorders. Herein we report a case of pituitary hyperplasia in a woman with NF1.Observation: A 55-year-old woman was referred to our department for the exploration of recurrent hypoglycemia. Her past medical history included NF1, asthma t...

Clinical and paraclinical features of pituitary metastases: Report of five cases

Chehaider Cyrine , Oueslati Ibtissem , Yazidi Meriem , Chihaoui Melika

Introduction: The sellar region is known as a low-risk brain metastasis area. The prevalence of pituitary metastasis represents 1% of all surgical tumors of the pituitary gland. In most cases, pituitary metastasis is identified in patients with a prior history of cancer. In a few cases, it can reveal the primary tumor. The aim of this study was to assess clinical and paraclinical features of pituitary metastasis. Methods: This was a retrospective and des...

Acromegaly with negative pituitary magnetic resonance imaging: a case report

Grassa Anis , Oueslati Ibtissem , Yazidi Meriem , Kamoun Elyes , Chihaoui Melika

Introduction: Acromegaly is a rare endocrine disorder. In 95% of cases, it is caused by a GH-secreting pituitary adenoma. Rarely, acromegaly is due to ectopic production of GH or growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). Herein, we report a case of acromegaly with negative pituitary magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and discuss its possible etiology and management.Observation: A 75-year-old woman was referred to our department for the exploration of acquir...
