Bone metastasis revealing thyroid micro-carcinoma

Brakni Lila , Ouldkablia Samia

Introduction: Occult carcinoma of the thyroid is defined as a microcancer less than 1 cm in size, clinically undetectable. Discovered accidentally during routine radiological examination, cervical surgery of a benign thyroid tumor, varies from 0.01% to 35.6%. Mostly it is papillary type. Occult cancers revealed by bone metastasis have rarely been reported. We report two patient observations presenting bone localizations of occult thyroid carcinoma.Observ...

An unusual case of skull metastasis of thyroid carcinoma in an adolescent

Brakni Lila , Haddadi Youcef , Tibbouk Samir , Ouldkablia Samia , Nebbal MD

Introduction: Thyroid carcinoma accounts for 1% of all thyroid tumours. Bone metastasis occurs in 10 to 40%, with skullmetastasis accounting for 2.5 to 5.8% of bone metastases. The largest series of skull metastasis from thyroid carcinoma described a frequency of only 2.5% among 473 patients. The majority of skull metastasis from thyroid cancers is of the follicular subtype. She can occur at any age, the youngest patient was just 18 years old but most patients are between 60 a...

Solitary metastasis of papillary thyroid cancer in the sellar region and cavernous sinus

Brakni Lila , Haffaf Lounes , Aribi Yamina , Hameg F , Ouldkablia Samia

The commonest site of metastasis from papillary carcinoma is regional lymph nodes. Distant metastases are rare, most presenting synchronously. Brain metastases in papillary carcinoma are rare, reported with a frequency of 0.1–5% and cavernous sinus metastasis is extremely rare.Case report: A 62-year-old woman presented with a history of non-secretory pituitary macroadenoma present with symptoms of hypopituitarism. MRI of the brain revealed a 4.5&#21...

Hashimoto thyroiditis followed by Grave's disease

Ouldkablia Samia , Cheikh Assya , Bensalah Meriem , Aribi Yamina , Kemali Zahra

Introduction: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) and Graves’ disease (GD) are two auto-immune diseases. They have different phenotypes and are generally believed to share a number of common etiological factors but the mechanisms leading to their dichotomy are unknown. An unusual outcome of HT is the conversion to GD.A mechanism that might be hypothesized to account for the change from HT to GD is the alteration in the biological activity of TSH recep...

Ouldkablia Samia , Cheikh Assya , Djermane Assia , Kemali Zahra

Introduction: Cushing syndrome is a rare etiology of hirsutism and oligomenorrhea.Objective: Screening for Cushing’s syndrome (CS) in patients with hirsutism and oligomenorrhea.Patients and methods: A prospective study was performed from 2004 to 2012. 210 patients were admitted with the complain of hirsutism and oligomenorrhea. In order to establish the diagnosis and exclude the CS, all of them were evaluated with overnight de...

Cardiovascular risk in Cushing's syndrome

Ouldkablia Samia , Aribi Yamina , Bensalah Meriem , Kemali Zahra

Introduction: Cushing’s syndrome is rare but severe because of his association with multiple complications and particularly increased cardiovascular factors. This complications determine a mortality rate four times higher than in general population.Objects: The aim of our study was to evalated the prevalence of cardiovascular factors in Cushing’ syndrome.Subjects and methods: Twenty-five patients with Cushing’ syndro...

Instable diabetes revealing pheochromocytoma

Abderrahmane Samir Ait , Boulmarka Imad , Chenegreha Mounia , Brakni Lila , Ouldkablia Samia , Oudjit Brahim

Introduction: Pheochromocytomas are secreting tumors, producing catecholamines (dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline), responsible for arterial hypertension; Pheochromocytoma in the diabetic may be responsible for an unbalanced glycemic and this considerably modifies the management. We present the case of a patient for whom the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma was posed before a glycemic imbalance.Clinical case: A 70-year-old patient is hospitalized for u...

Adrenal insufficiency revealing pseudotumorale surrenale tuberculosis

Abderahmane Samir Ait , Bensalah Meriem , Aribi Yamina , Brakni Lila , Ouldkablia Samia , Kemali Zahra

Adrenal tuberculosis was first described by Thomas Addison in 1855, Isolated adrenal tuberculosis is rare and between represents 1–2% of the aetiologies of adrenal masses called expired incidentalomas. We report the case of a related Addison’s disease is a progressive adrenal tuberculosis which could benefit from exploration and a tomography monitoring on anti tuberculosis treatment. Patient aged 35 years presented himself to medical emergency with clinical surgical ...
