Rare case of cushing with papillary thyroid cancer

Fathy Marwa , Hassan Farouk , Salam Randa

Introduction: Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most common type of thyroid cancer (70-80% of all thyroid cancer). It is a differentiated type of carcinoma, it affects women between 30-60 years old, 3 times more often than males. Clinical outcome in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma is often favorable. Glucocorticoids (GC) play major role in the physiologic stress response. However chronic exposure to glucocorticoids as seen in Cushing’s disease (CD) has det...

Urinary iodine excretion in Egyptian females with nodular goiter

Aziz Rokaya Abd El , Heshmat Tarek , Salam Randa

Introduction: Iodine is needed for the production of thyroid hormone. The prediction of iodine intake is difficult. The standard measure of iodine nutrition in a community is the median urinary iodine excretion, expressed in micrograms per liter. According to the WHO, a median urinary iodine excretion of 100–199 μg/l indicates that the iodine intake is adequate.The aim of this work is to measure the iodine excretion in patients with thyroid nod...
