Generalised anxiety disorder following thyroidectomy

Panteliou Eleftheria , Nikookam Khash

A 38-year-old woman presented with tremor and anxiety 3 weeks into her pregnancy and was diagnosed with thyrotoxicosis. One year postpartum, the thyroid appeared multinodular with a dominant nodule that showed deficient uptake on the technetium scan. Her thyroid function was normal and thyroid peroxidase antibodies were negative. She developed an enlarging goitre and underwent total thyroidectomy following which she developed persistent hypocalcaemia and hypomagnesaemia.<p...

Introduction: Covid -19 can cause serious or severe illness in anyone but those with chronic health conditions are at greater risk. Adrenal insufficiency (AI) is assumed to be associated with an increased Covid-19 infection risk, which could trigger an adrenal crisis. We conducted a retrospective study at district general hospital to assess the incidence of COVID-19 in Adrenal insufficiency patients.Method and material: Retrospective review of 43 patient...

Anwuzia-Iwegbu Charles , Mian Ali , Hussain Shazia , Panteliou Eleftheria , Chahal Harvey , Drake Wiliam

A 42-year-old woman presented to her GP with episodes of feeling ‘shaky’ exacerbated by physical exercise and prolonged fast. She was previously diagnosed with an insulinoma in 2006 (serum glucose 1.6 mmol/l, serum insulin 3.1 mIU/l and serum C-peptide <165 pmol/l). CT abdomen /transabdominal ultrasound revealed a 1 cm insulinoma in the uncinate process of the pancreas and the patient later underwent pancreatic enucleation in 2006. Post pancreatic enucleation, 72...

Use of recombinant parathyroid hormone with significant improvement of debilitating hypocalcaemia and hypomagnesaemia

Panteliou Eleftheria , James Ajith , Hawkins Anna , Jones Stuart , Kwong Pandina , Gupta Dinesh , Razzak Yousaf , Casey Edel , Nikookam Khash

Primary hypoparathyroidism is a rare condition. Contrary to other endocrine deficiencies treated with hormone replacement, recombinant parathyroid hormone (PTH) is not currently licensed for its treatment in Europe. Emerging evidence of efficacy and safety of recombinant PTH in treating resistant hypoparathyroidism will hopefully provide a new tool in managing this challenging condition.This is the case of a 45 year-old woman presenting with gradually wo...
