Subacute Thyroiditis with an atypical clinical course and thyroid 99mTc uptake

Sema Deniz , Celikmen Maktav , Ozdemir Ali

Background: Subacute thyroiditis (SAT) is a transient inflammatory, probably viral disease of the thyroid gland. It is clinically characterized by pain, fever, increased erythyrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or other markers of inflammation, transient thyrotoxicosis, and has a tendency to recur. In most cases, in addition to the clinical features, scintigraphy and ultrasound may support the diagnosis of SAT. However, in the present case, SAT with an atypical thyroid 99m</...

Okuroglu Nalan , Komoglu Sabiha , Usta Rojda , Tas Berrak , Sertbas Meltem , Ozdemir Ali

People with diabetes are at increased risk for developing tuberculosis than non-diabetics. We presented a patient with recurrent diabetic ketoacidosis who was later diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis.Case: A 22 year old male with type 1 diabetes for nine years was admitted to the emergency service due to nausea and vomiting. Detecting high anion gap with metabolic acidosis in his blood gas), and ketones in urine analysis,the patient was hospitalized f...

Plasma omentin-1 level does not change in the first trimester in women with gestational diabetes mellitus

Sancak Seda , Aydin Hasan , Sargin Mehmet , Orcun Asuman , Ozdemir Ali , Celik Ayhan , Aslan Gulgun

Objective: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is strongly associated with maternal obesity. Omentin-1 is secreted from the adipose tissue and enhances insulin action. Circulating levels are inversely correlated with body weight, decreased in type 2 diabetes. Pre-existing maternal obesity has been shown to be associated with lower omentin-1 expression in placenta, adipose tissue and maternal plasma. In our previous study, we had shown that plasma omentin-1 level is decreased i...

Serum irisin level increases throughout the gestational period and it does not play role in development of gestational diabetes mellitus

Seda Seda , Aydin Hasan , Sargin Mehmet , Orcun Asuman , Ozdemir Ali , Celik Ayhan , Aslan Gulgun

Objective: Irisin is a novel adipomyokine that regulates the differentiation and phenotype of adipose tissue. It induces an increase in total body energy expenditure, improves insulin sensitivity, and glucose tolerance. It showed that the levels of irisin are low in obese, diabetic and impaired glucose tolerance patients. However, the information of the levels of circulating irisin in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is controversial. In this study, we investigated i) the l...

Coexistent toxic adenoma and Riedel thyroiditis: a case report

Tam Abbas Ali , Ozdemir Didem , Ersoy Pamir Eren , Kilicarslan Aydan , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Riedel thyroiditis is a rare chronic inflammatory disease of the thyroid. It is characterized by replacement of normal parenchyma with dense fibrotic tissue. Peripheral tissues might also be affected and this may cause airway obstruction, dysphagia, recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy and hypoparathyroidism. We report a patient with toxic adenoma previously treated with radioactive iodine and histopathologically confirmed Riedel thyroiditis.Case: A 61 years ...

ABO blood groups, Rh factor and thyroid cancer risk: To ‘B’ or not to ‘B’

Tam Abbas Ali , Ozdemir Didem , Faki Sevgul , Bilginer Muhammet Cuneyt , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Aim: In this study, we aimed to evaluate ABO blood groups and Rh factor in patients with thyroid cancer. We also assessed whether the ABO/Rh factor had any effect on prognosis, agressive features and advanced stage of thyroid malignancies.Methods: Medical records of patients who underwent thyroidectomy between December 2006 and September 2014 were evaluated retrospectively. Demographical and clinical features, cytological results (according to Bethesda c...

Association of multifocality, tumor number and total tumor diameter with clinicopathological features in papillary thyroid cancer

Tam Abbas Ali , Ozdemir Didem , Cuhaci Neslihan , Baser Husniye , Aydin Cevdet , Kilicyazgan Aylin , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: In this study, we aimed to evaluate impact of multifocality, tumor number and total tumor diameter on clinicopathological features of PTC.Methods: Medical records of 912 patients who underwent thyroidectomy and diagnosed with PTC were reviewed retrospectively. Patients were grouped into 4 according to number of tumoral foci; N1 (1 focus), N2 (2 foci), N3 (3 foci) and N4 (≥ 4 foci). The diameter of the largest tumor was considered as t...

Erdogan Fusun , Yuksel Sevgi Arik , Ersoy Ali Ozdemir , Tanriverdi Fatih , Ünlühizarci Kursad , Kelestimur Fahrettin

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder affecting approximately 4–8% of premenopausal women. The main clinical features are clinical and/or biochemical hyperandrogenemia, oligomenorrhea and polycystic ovarian changes. It has gained a great attention during the last two decades with the realization that this syndrome affects more than the reproductive system. Epilepsy is a common neurologic disorder affecting women during the reproductive years. Sei...

Primary hyperparathyroidism mimicking metastatic bone disease

Akyıldız Ali Burkan , Sancak Seda , Okuroğlu Nalan , Abacar Kerem Yiğit , Sakcı Elif , Ozdemir Ali

We would like to present a case of primary hyperparathyroidism presumably present with clinically large cystic parathyroid adenoma with multiple destructive skeletal lesions, which is of course referred to bone metastases.Case: A 58-year-old male patient was admitted to the orthopedy polyclinic with left leg pain and on the MR imaging performed here, multiple lytic lesions compatible with metastasis to the tibia and fibula were detected. He was directed ...

Postpartum Tip 2 DM follow-up after gestational diabetes mellitus

Sancak Seda , Ozdemir Ali , Abacar Kerem Yiğit , Celik Ayhan , Okuroğlu Nalan , Sertbaş Yaşar , Aydin Hasan

Purpose: GDM is defined as any degree of carbonhydrate intolerance that is first diagnosed during pregnancy. Patients diagnosed with GDM are expected to have complications such as Type II DM, obesity, hypertension in the long term. Prevalence of GDM diagnosis during pregrancy changes between 2 and 10%. Our purpose is to revaluate the OGTT of the patients diagnosed with GDM, with regard to their postpartum Type II DM progress.Materials and methods: 450 pr...
