Heparin-induced hypo-aldosteronism and hyperkalemia

Alizadeh Katrin , Qureshi Sheharyar

We present an interesting case of Heparin inducedhypoaldosteronism associated hyperkalemia in a 69 year old man with a prosthetic heart valve requiring a right sided nephrectomy for a liposarcoma. His persistent hyperkalaemia failed to respond to conventional treatment initiallybut a switch to Warfarin and use of oral Fludrocortisone was effective in normalisation of observed high renin and low aldosterone levels. Early and timely recognition of Heparin induced hypoaldosteroni...

Secondary hypothyroidism? a challenging diagnosis

Rajpar Hiba , Qureshi Sheharyar

Introduction: Secondary hypothyroidism can be a difficult diagnosis to make in patients presenting with fatigue. About 30% of females can develop hypopituitarism post-partum and report symptoms after losing any of the anterior pituitary hormone axis. Central hypopituitarism can occur secondary to various structural and vascular abnormalities but can present with pure hormonal abnormalities.Case: We present a case of a wo...

Of note she was 24 months post-partum and had not experienced thyroid problems in either of her two pregnancies. On examination she was overweight with marked myxoedema and proximal myopathy.Investigations: Serum TSH was greatly elevated at 206 mIU/l and free T4 was undetectable at <3.20 pmol/l. T3 was 2.8 pmol/l. She was referred urgently to the medical te...

Primary hyperaldosteronism presenting following a miscarriage

Thurston Layla , Qureshi Sheharyar , Martineau Marcus

Case history: A 35-year-old female was found to be significantly hypertensive (181/91 mmHg) following a first trimester miscarriage (at 8 weeks gestation) during her first pregnancy.Investigations: Blood tests demonstrated moderate hypokalaemia (2.6 mmol/l) with a normal serum sodium (140 mmol/l) and eGFR (>90 ml/min). ECG showed hypokalaemic changes with prolongation of the PR interval and T wave flattening. To avoid potential misinterpretation, add...

Resistance to 1 hydroxyvitamin D? A challenging case

Zaman Shamaila , Aziz Umaira , Qureshi Sheharyar , Falinska Agnieszka , Martineau Marcus

Hypoparathyroidism following parathyroidectomy is commonly treated with activated vitamin D, (alfacalcidol and calcitriol). Alfacalcidol (1-hydroxyvitamin D) is converted by hepatic 25-hydroxylase to generate calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D) to act on target cells.We present the case of 66 year old man who was admitted with chest pain in November 2016 and found to have corrected calcium of 1.5 mmol/litre and PO4 2.7 mmol/litre....
