Gynecomastia in men: A rare case of adrenal feminizing tumors

Duarte Vitoria , Verissimo David , Passos Dolores , Serra Filipa , Silva Joao , Lopes Luis , Castro J.J. , Marcelino Mafalda

Estrogen-producing adrenal gland tumors (EPAGT) are extremely rare, accounting for only 1–2% of all adrenal tumors. They are most commonly observed in men or in children, and are unusual in women. They are almost always malignant even if they seem benign at presentation, and most of them have a poor prognosis. We present a case of a 71-year-old man with painful bilateral gynecomastia, without galactorrhea, over 4 months. Markedly elevated plasma estradiol levels were foun...

A slow but continuous growth: Case study of a thyroid nodule

Verissimo David , Pires Vitoria , Passos Dolores , Serra Filipa , Silva Joao , Lopes Luis , Castro Joao Jacome de , Marcelino Mafalda

Thyroid nodules are a common clinical finding, with an estimated prevalence of palpable thyroid nodules to be approximately 5% in women and 1% in men. The clinical importance of thyroid nodules rests with the need to exclude thyroid cancer. The prevalence of malignancy reported for palpable thyroid lesions ranges from 5.0% to 6.5%. Patients with benign thyroid nodules are unlikely to suffer morbidity or mortality due to thyroid cancer. A 53 aged man presented with a 20-year hi...

Ectopic thyroid tissue challenge: clinical case report

Verissimo David , Ivo Catarina , Duarte Vitoria , Passos Dolores , Serra Filipa , Silva Joao , Lopes Luis , Castro Joao Jacome de , Marcelino Mafalda

Introduction: Ectopic thyroid tissue is a rare embryonic developmental defect that occurs during the thyroid transition from its initial position in the floor of the primitive bowel to a pre-tracheal location. This defect has a prevalence in the general population of 0.3–1/100,000 inhabitants, increasing to 0.5–1/4,000 patients with thyroid pathology. It is more common in women and can be diagnosed at any age, with diagnosis being more common in young individuals.</p...

Bone mineral density evolution following long-term simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation in type 1 diabetes

Sílvia Santos Monteiro , Santos Tiago Silva , Duarte Diana Borges , Pereira Catarina , Silva Filipa , Martins La Salete , Dores Jorge

IntroductionSimultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (PKT) has a beneficial effect on the evolution of chronic complications in type 1 diabetic (T1D) patients with terminal chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, the CKD-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) remains a frequent complication. There are a few studies addressing the long-term evolution of bone mineral density (BMD) in these patients.AimTo charac...

The influence of simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation on the evolution of diabetic foot lesions and peripheral arterial disease

Monteiro Sílvia , Pereira Catarina , Duarte Diana , Santos Tiago , Silva Filipa , Martins La Salete , Amaral Cláudia , Freitas Cláudia , Carvalho André , Martins Joana , Loureiro Luís , Carvalho Rui , Dores Jorge

Introduction: Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation remains the best treatment option in type 1 diabetic patients with chronic kidney failure, providing a euglycemic state associated with an improvement on diabetic chronic complications. However, there are only a few studies addressing the potential ischemic deterioration of peripheral arterial disease, due to blood diverting from the iliac artery to the kidney graft.Aim: Evaluate diabetic foot le...
