Introduction: Thyroid incidentaloma detected by FDG-PET/CT (flourodeoxyglucose positron emition tomography/computed tomography) is important because of high rate of malignancy. Elastosonograpghy has proven valuable in discriminating malign and benign thyroid lesions. In this study, we aimed to evaluate PET incidentalomas by ultrasonography and elastosonography and to compare cytopathological results with imaging findings.Methods: A total of 50 patients i...

Solitary pulmonary nodule developing ectopic Cushing’s Syndrome over the years: Awakening of a Sleeping Giant

Bostan Hayri , Kizilgul Muhammed , Ozcelik Ozgur , Gul Umran , Taskin Turkmenoglu Tugba , Ozbek Mustafa , Cakal Erman

Background: A rare cause of ectopic Cushing’s Syndrome (ECS) is pulmonary neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN) with a broad spectrum of clinical behavior. At the time of diagnosis, pulmonary NENs may present as occult tumors or well-defined round-to-oval lesions in close relationship to the bronchus. Herein, we describe a NEN that developed ECS three years later in a patient followed up for a solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN).Case Presentation: A 56-year-old...

Coexistence of primary mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma of thyroid and papillary thyroid microcarcinoma in a background of hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Duger Hakan , Calapkulu Murat , Ucan Bekir , Cakal Erman , Ozbek Mustafa , Yılmazer Demet

Introduction: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common endocrine cancer however extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) of the thyroid gland is quite rare. The simultaneous association of both cancers is much more rare.Case report: 65-year-old woman underwent a thyroid ultrasound examination due to palpable thyroid nodules. Thyroid ultrasound revealed thyroiditis and multiple nodules on the right and ...

Somatostatin Analogue Treatment of a Persistant TSH-Secreting Adenoma: a report of case

Unsal İlknur Ozturk , Cakal Erman , Apaydın Mahmut , Karakose Melia , Ucan Bekir , Ozbek Mustafa

Introduction: Thyrotropinomas are usually considered when the TSH level is inappropriately elevated or normal in a hyperthyroid patient with increased serum T4 levels, regardless of the presence of visible tumor on imaging. The prevalence of these adenomas, which account for 0.5–3% of all pituitary tumors has been estimated to be around one case per million. Most thyrotroph adenomas are large and invasive at diagnosis, and present with signs and symptoms of an ...

Frequency of nodular goiter and autoimmune thyroid disease and association of these disorders with insulin resistance in polycystic ovary syndrome

Karakose Mellia , Hepsen Sema , Cakal Erman , Arslan Muyesser , Tutal Esra , Akin Safak , Unsal Ilknur , Ozbek Mustafa

Background and aim: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorder in women with reproductive age. Nodular goiter and autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) are frequently seen endocrinological abnormalities. The aim of this study was to identify the prevalence of AITD and nodular goiter in PCOS patients and investigate whether PCOS related hormones and metabolic factors affect these thyroid disorders.Methods: Ninety-seven with ...

Teriparatide treatment in a patient with resistance hypoparathyroidism

Erkam Sencar Muhammed , Calapkulu Murat , Ozturk Unsal İlknur , Hepsen Sema , Ozbek Mustafa , Cakal Erman

Background: Hypoparathyroidism is an uncommon disorder of calcium metabolism characterized by hypocalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, and reduced level of parathyroid hormone (PTH). The most common cause of hypoparathyroidism is accidental damage to the parathyroid glands during thyroid surgery. There are no formal guidelines for hypoparathyroidism management. The main goal of treatment is to improve the symptoms of hypocalcemia, to keep the serum calcium within the low normal range,...

Evaluation of aortic stiffness in the acromegaly patients with remission

Karatay Eylem , Cakal Erman , Gonulalan Gulsum , Dogan Mehmet , Bozkurt Nujen Colak , Ozbek Mustafa , Delibasi Tuncay

Objective: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most important cause of mortality in acromegaly patients. Noninvasive assessment of aortic stiffness which can be used as an predictor of atherosclerosis, may be of benefit in acromegaly patients for early diagnosis of CVD. We evaluated the aortic elasticity parameters of acromegalic patients in remission and compared with healthy controls.Methods and results: Study subjects consisted of 20 patients with a...

Echocardiographic epicardial fat thickness in acromegaly patients

Gonulalan Gulsum , Ozbek Mustafa , Cakir Evrim , Colak Nujen , Cakal Erman , Delibasi Tuncay

Objective: Acromegaly is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, mostly due to cardiovascular complications. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the echocardiographic epicardial fat thickness in acromegaly patients.Methods and results: We evaluated 25 consecutive patients with acromegaly (15 females, 10 males, mean age 44.5±10.1 years), and 22 age-matched control subjects (12 females, 10 males, mean age 37.40±7.5 years...

A case of diabetic ketoacidosis with ECG abnormalities mimicking acute coronary syndrome

Ozkaya Evrim Cakir , Ozbek Mustafa , Bozkurt Nujen Colak , Cakal Erman , Karbek Basak , Delibasi Tuncay

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) seen in 10–70% of patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) has a significant risk of mortality. We present a DKA in a patient with DM1 resulted in hypokalemia related ECG abnormalities that the diagnosis needed to be differentiated from acute coronary syndrome. A 18-year-old women without any significant past medical history admitted to hospital with a two day history of fatique, weakness, nausea, vomiting. Patient appeared hipovolemic. Vit...

Association between ischemia-modified albumin and oxidative stress markers in patients with metabolic syndrome

Ozbek Mustafa , Cakir Evrim , Colak Nujen , Cakal Erman , Aliyazicioglu Yuksel , Mentese Ahmet , Turan Ibrahim , Delibasi Tuncay

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the change in serum ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) level and oxidative stress markers (total antioxidant status, TAS, total oxidant status, TOS) in patients with metabolic syndrome (metS).Research design and methods: We studied 52 metS patients (56.74±12.75 mean age), and 36 control subjects (54.47±6.52 mean age). The presence of metS was diagnosed according to National Cholesterol Education Pr...
