Introduction: Thyrotropin-secreting pituitary adenomas (TSHomas) are a rare cause of hyperthyroidism and represent <1% of all pituitary adenomas. The majority of TSHomas (70%) secrete TSH alone, while mixed adenomas are not infrequent.Design: Herein, we reported the findings of six patients with TSHoma (mean age 44 yr, 4 female, 2 male). Mean TSH value was 15.1 mIU/L (3.3–38.0) who were followed-up in our department.Result...

Propylthiouracil (PTU) is a widely used drug, and can cause drug-induced vasculitis which is characterized by inflammation and cellular infiltration of small vessels and presence of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA). We report a case of perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis developed during treatment with PTU for Graves’ disease. A 58-year-old woman admitted to the Emergency Department with painful necrotic lesion at her right e...

ObjectivesMale prolactinoma patients mostly have hypogonadotropic symptoms. While treatment with dopamine agonists (DAs; such as bromocriptine or cabergoline) leads to recovery of sexual glands, it can lead to impulsive control disorders as an undesirable side effect. The aim of this retrospective study is to determine the level of testosterone that eliminates symptoms, provides fertility and does not cause this undesirable side effect regardless of prol...

Background: Adrenal incidentaloma (AI) is described as an adrenal mass detected on imaging not performed for adrenal disease. In coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, chest CT evaluation was performed for all ages in adults. In this study, we aimed to detect adrenal adenoma(s) which were identified with chest CT, during COVID-19 diagnostic work-up to find AI prevalence in our population.Methods: All patients who underwent chest CT examination for...
