Unusual PCOS presentation and/or functional amenorrhea

Shehu Tea

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a multifaceted endocrine disorder traditionally classified into four phenotypes. A recently proposed hyper-/hypoandrogenic phenotype (HH-PCOS) falling under the D phenotype introduces additional complexity, emphasizing the spectrum of androgenic manifestations within this heterogeneous syndrome.

Its prevalence goes from 2 to 12.5%. Etiology of this disorder is very wide and involves endocrinopathy, mitochondrial myopathies dermatological abnormalities, infectious disease or may be idiopathic. We present a case of a patient with diffuse brain calcifications d...

Primary vs tertriary hyperparathyroidism in a patient with medullary nefrocalcinosis and chronic renal failure

Shehu Tea , Hoxha Violeta , Ylli Dorina , Cerma Adishah , Ylli Agron

Background: Nephrocalcinosis is characterized by the deposition of calcium products in kidney parenchyma and tubules. It may cause acute or chronic kidney injury or be incidentally detected radiographically in a patient with normal kidney function. Most patients with nephrocalcinosis do not progress to end-stage kidney disease, but with certain underlying conditions, may be associated with progressive kidney dysfunction.Methods: The patient was diagnosed...

Microprolactinoma and pregnancy. A case report and review of literature

Kermaj Marjeta , Hyka Besa , Shehu Tea , Ylli Agron

IntroductionProlactinomas are the most common pituitary tumors and a common cause of infertility because of gonadal dysfunction, in young women. The treatment of choice is dopamine agonists, which can restore fertility and promote shrinking of the tumor in the majority of cases. Managing prolactinomas during pregnancy may be challenging. Treatment discontinuation is recommended once the pregnancy is confirmed in women with microprolactinoma. For micropro...

Kermaj Marjeta , Shehu Tea , Troshani Jona , Hoxha Violeta , Poshi Klodiana , Ylli Dorina , Kito Jonida , Muco Ermira , Ylli Agron

Background: During the COVID-19 outbreak, there are rising concerns about long-term complications of COVID-19. On the other hand, discitis is a rare neurologic diagnosis, often delayed or missed due to the rarity of the disease. Patients usually present at an average age of 69 years with a history of diabetes or with a systemic infection. The lumbar spine is the most frequent site of infection (54%), and the cervical is the least at 10%. This is a case of post-COVID-19, diabet...

Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma with Abdominal Desmoid-Type Fibromatosis – A Case Report

Poshi Klodiana , Haxhiraj Adela , Kermaj Marjeta , Hoxha Violeta , Ylli Dorina , Toti Florian , Shehu Tea , Muja Ardita , Cerma Adishah , Zotaj Ina , Ylli Agron

Introduction: Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma is the most frequent malignant tumour of the thyroid gland. It usually progresses slowly and is rarely metastatic. On the other side, fibromatosis are usually benign tumours with infrequent malignant appearances, which affect musculoaponeurotic structures. The aetiology remains unclear, although various possible factors are linked to it such as trauma, genetic predisposition, β-catenin heterozygous mutation, hormone disbalance etc...
