Subacute thyroiditis in a patient with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) meningitis

Siolos Athanasios , Terzaki Alexandra , Tigas Stelios

Introduction: Viral infections have been implicated as a possible predisposing factor in the pathogenesis of subacute thyroiditis (ST). The seasonal distribution and the common clinical presentation of ST following upper respiratory track infections suggest a possible causative association. Direct serological or thyroid tissue evidence of viral infection during ST is however limited to a few case reports.Case presentation: We present the case of a 59-yea...

Congenital anomaly of the kidney and urinary tract and mody 5 due to 17Q12 deletion syndrome; a case report

Siolos Athanasios , Merkoviti Maria , Georgiou Ioannis , Siomou Ekaterini , Tigas Stelios

Hepatocyte nuclear factor 1B (HNF1B) defects (mutations or deletion) are associated with amultisystem disorder, including urinary tract abnormalities and diabetes (MODY 5, maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 5). We present the case of a patient with congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract in the context of 17q12 deletion syndrome who several years later, presented with MODY 5. A 20-year-old male presented at the outpatient Endocrine Clinic with new-...

Graves’ disease associated with severe pancytopenia; case report

Terzaki Alexandra , Varveris Evangelos , Merkoviti Maria , Christou Maria , Siolos Athanasios , Chaliasos Nikolaos , Makis Alexandros , Tigas Stelios

Introduction: Thyrotoxicosis may be associated with anemia (10–34% of thyrotoxic patients), leucopenia (15–30%) and thrombocytopenia (2–5%). We present the case of a 13-year-old girl with Graves’ disease associated with severe pancytopenia.Case presentation: The patient presented with menorrahgia and symptoms suggestive of an upper respiratory tract infection. On examination she was afebrile with a pulse rate of 100/min at rest. She h...

Thyroid autoimmunity and frequency of malignant or suspicious for malignancy thyroid nodule cytology

Siolos Athanasios , Chambidis Vasileios , Efstathiadou Zoe , Georgiou Thomas , Panagiotou Athanasios , Adamidou Fotini , Kita Marina

Introduction: Thyroid autoimmunity has been associated with the diagnosis of differentiated thyroid (DTC) cancer in surgical series. However, this finding has not been consistent in Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (FNAB) cytology series.Aim: We aimed to investigate the association between thyroid autoimmunity and DTC in patients who underwent ultrasound-guided FNAB.Methods: A retrospective analysis of patients who had undergone ultra...

Ultrasonographic features of thyroid nodules with suspicious or malignant cytology

Chambidis Vasileios , Siolos Athanasios , Lazarou Lazaros , Efstathiadou Zoe , Panagiotou Athanasios , Adamidou Fotini , Kita Marina

Introduction: Thyroid sonography has become the first line diagnostic procedure for thyroid nodules. The characterization of specific sonografic patterns associated with high risk of malignancy has enabled physicians to determine which nodules are more likely to be malignant and thus merit further evaluation.Aim: We investigated whether the ultrasonographic nodule characteristics proposed in the literature were able to predict cytology findings after ult...

Do lipid profile predict subclinical Cushing’s Syndrome in patients with adrenal incidentalomas?

Mintziori Gesthimani , Georgiou Thomas , Siolos Athanasios , Adamidou Fotini , Efstathiadou Zoe , Anagnostis Panagiotis , Panagiotou Athanasios , Kita Marina

Introduction: Adrenal Incidentalomas (AIs) have been associated with an increased risk of metabolic syndrome and dyslipidemia, though evidence regarding the latter is limited and, sometimes conflicting. Lipid abnormalities in patients with AIs have been described to be associated with subclinical hypercortisolism. Our aim was to test if lipid profile in patients with adrenal incidentalomas may predict subclinical Cushing’s Syndrome (sCS).Material an...

Prevalence and natural history of adrenal incidentalomas: a prospective cohort study

Anagnostis Panagiotis , Siolos Athanasios , Zouli Chrisanthi , Adamidou Fotini , Efstathiadou Zoe , Panagiotou Athanasios , Mintziori Gesthimani , Kita Marina

Introduction: Adrenal incidentalomas (AIs) are frequently detected due to the increasing use of abdominal imaging for diagnostic purposes. However, few prospective studies exist with respect to their natural history, regarding their size and clinical course. The aim of this study was to report the prevalence and natural history of AIs.Methods/design: Interim analysis of a prospective cohort study. The following tests were performed: serum cortisol noctur...

Treatment goal achievement in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus followed-up at a tertiary center in greece

Christou Maria , Merkoviti Maria , Terzaki Alexandra , Zisidis Christos , Siolos Athanasios , Tigas Stelios

Aim: Current guidelines for type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) suggest a therapeutic goal for glycosylated hemoglobin (A1c) of < 7.0% in adults and < 7.5% in children and adolescents, while emphasizing the importance of managing dyslipidemia. We aimed to record the achievement of therapeutic goals in DM1 patients followed-up in a Greek tertiary center.Methods: Data were included from DM1 patients who had visited the Department at least once in the pr...

Glucose prediction model based on continuous glucose monitoring in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus: GlucoseML study preliminary results

Christou Maria , Katsarou Daphne N. , Georga Eleni I. , Zisidis Christos , Siolos Athanasios , Papaloukas Costas , Tigas Stelios , Fotiadis Dimitrios I.

Introduction: Current guidelines emphasize the important role of Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) for type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) management. The aim of the GlucoseML study is the development of a mobile health system for T1DM self-management based on CGM data, physical activity, food intake and insulin dosage. We herein present the development and evaluation of a univariate Autoregressive Moving Average (ARMA) prediction model of interstitial glucose concentration for ...

Frequency and prognostic factors of non-diagnostic cytology in ultrasound guided thyroid fine needle aspiration biopsy: a 2-year single centre experience

Chambidis Vasileios , Siolos Athanasios , Efstathiadou Zoe , Sykja Albana , Georgiou Thomas , Chambidou Eleni , Panagiotou Athanasios , Adamidou Fotini , Kita Marina

Aim: Ultrasound-guided Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (USg-FNAB) is the most accurate modality for distinguishing malignant or possibly malignant from benign thyroid nodules. However, a certain amount of specimens turn out to be non-diagnostic or inadequate. Several factors contribute to this outcome such as the examiner’s experience, characteristics of the nodule and patient’s compliance. Understanding these factors could contribute to reduction of non-diagnostic res...
