Features of pituitary-ovarian axis functioning in woman of reproductive age with acromegaly and Cushing’s disease

Vorotnikova Svetlana , Pigarova Ekaterina , Dzeranova Larisa

Context: The prevalence of reproductive dysfunction among patients with acromegaly (ACRO) and Cushing’s disease (CD) is high enough, and menstrual disturbances are often the first clinical symptoms of the disease. Objective. The purpose of this study was to assess the functioning of the pituitary-ovarian axis by examination of key hormones.Methods and patients: The study included 58 patients of reproductive age, 21 with ACRO, the average age was 36....

Early carbohydrate metabolism disorders in a patient with acromegaly and family history of pituitary adenomas

Matchekhina Lubov , Tarasova Tatiana , Pigarova Ekaterina

Introduction: Acromegaly is a chronic, debilitating disorder caused by excessive growth hormone (GH) production predominantly due to a benign pituitary adenoma. The overall annual incidence of acromegaly is approximately 3.3 cases/million, with a prevalence of 58–130 cases/million people. Early carbohydrate metabolism disorders (ECMDs) are frequently associated with acromegaly. ECMDs – defined as IFG, IGT or their combination – its prevalence in patients with ac...

Implementation of clinical guidelines on the cancellation of dopamine agonists in the event of pregnancy in patients with hyperprolactinaemia tumour origin

Gallinger Julia , Pigarova Ekaterina , Dzeranova Larisa

Aim: Clinical guidelines recommend the cancellation of dopamine agonists after confirmation of pregnancy as because further their use is unnecessary. However, an implementation of these recommendations in real clinical practice is unknown which became the aim of our present research.Materials and methods: The study included 21 patients with prolactinomas who had 26 pregnancies ended in childbirth. These patients were found archived medical records of End...

Changes in anxiety and depression symptoms in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome treated with vitamin D

Plescheva Anastasia , Pigarova Ekaterina , Dzeranova Larisa

Introduction: Vitamin D is involved not only in the regulation of calcium–phosphorus metabolism; it also plays an important role in maintaining the immune system, muscle strength and neuromuscular conduction. Lack of vitamin D is assumed as one of the mechanisms of autoimmune and infectious diseases. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) – is a syndrome manifesting with a severe chronic physical, mental weakness, psychological disturbances such as anxiety and depression, th...

Prevalence and causes of hyponatremia in patients with endocrine disorders

Pigarova Ekaterina , Cherepanova Elena , Dzeranova Larisa

Objectives: To study the prevalence and causes of hyponatremia in patients with various endocrine diseases.Methods: We had retrospectively analyzed the results of biochemical laboratory studies performed during one calendar month at the tertiary care clinic for endocrinology patients for the variations in the serum sodium concentrations. Blood sodium levels <135 mmol/l were considered as hyponatremia. For all patients with hyponatriemia addition data...

Hypothalamic neuropeptides as biomarkers for water-electrolyte disturbances

Katamadze Nino , Shutova Aleksandra , Pigarova Ekaterina , Dzeranova Larisa , Fargieva Khava

Hypothalamic neuropeptides as biomarkers for water-electrolyte disturbances. Introduction Diabetes insipidus is a rare condition characterized by excretion of large amounts of dilute urine and increased thirst. Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI) is caused by the inability of the kidneys to concentrate urine in response to vasopressin.Aim: The aim of our case report is to present the patient with NDI and to report the data on physiological changes in hy...

Carney complex as a rare reason of acromegaly in adulthood

Perepelova Margarita , Przhiyalkovskaya Elena , Dzeranova Larisa , Pigarova Ekaterina , Kolodkina Anna

Carney complex is a rare hereditary syndrome with an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern that manifests itself with a set of specific symptoms. Case presentation. 32-year-old woman was admitted to the endocrinological hospital with an active stage of acromegaly. From the anamnesis it is known that at the age of 11, the height was 172 cm. The diagnosis of acromegaly was established at the age of 28 years: IGF-1 673.8 ng/ml (78–311), pituitary gland with para(d)-sellar s...

Case report of a patient with partial antidiuretic hormone deficiency (central diabetes insipidus)

Katamadze Nino , Shutova Aleksandra , Fargieva Khava , Pigarova Ekaterina , Dzeranova Larisa

Introduction: Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a rare condition characterized by excretion of large amounts of dilute urine and increased thirst due to deficiency or renal resistance of antidiuretic hormone (ADH). DI is often difficult to diagnose reliably and accurately, especially in patients with partial DI.Aim: The aim of our case report is to present the patient with partial diabetes insipidus and to report the results of water deprivation and hypertonic ...

Pharmacokinetics in patients with prolactinomas

Fedorova Natalia , Dzeranova Larisa , Pigarova Ekaterina , Vorotnikova Svetlana

Introduction: Prolactinoma is the most commonly occurring hormonally active pituitary tumor. In most cases, dopamine receptor agonists (DA) as a monotherapy are effective. However, approximately 10% of patients with prolactinomas fail to achieve normalization of serum prolactin levels during treatment with DA, which indicates resistance to this group of drugs.Aims: The goal was to study the pharmacokinetics of cabergoline in patients harboring prolactino...

Pregnancy-related osteoporosis: a series of cases

Petrushkina Alexandra , Pigarova Ekaterina , Dzeranova Larisa , Rozhinskaya Liudmila

Objective: Pregnancy-related osteoporosis is a rare disorder with potentially severe complications. There is lack of clinical practice guidelines due to low incidence of this disease and few published cases.Material and methods: We present eight cases of pregnancy-related osteoporosis in women aged between 28–42 years. Six of them were diagnosed between 1 month and 3 years postpartum and two were diagnosed in the third trimester of pregnancy. Most o...
