Introduction: Secretory adrenal tumors sensitive to luteinizing hormone (LH) and/or human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) are well documented in the literature. LH and hCG share a mutual LH/hCG receptor and a comparable physiological role.Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate the response of adrenal steroids (cortisol, aldosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS)) to exogenous hCG stimulation in menopausal patients with adrenal incident...

Introduction: It is presumed that hiccups are a vestigial reflex in mammals. They are rather common in healthy subjects. Persistent hiccups (lasting >48 h) are a serious clinical sign, and documented in a number of debilitating conditions. According to the available literature persistent hiccups in Addisonian crisis have been previously documented in only two patients.Case report: In July 2018, a 39 year old man checked into the ER complaining of nau...

Introduction: The incidence of adrenal incidentaloma (AI) increases with age. According to epidemiological studies they are more frequent in women than in men.Aim: The aim was to determine the possible clinical sexual dimorphism in patients with nonfunctional adrenal incidentaloma (NAI).Patients and methods: This was an observational, cross-sectional study of 381 patients with AI that were functionally assessed in our Clinic. After...

Clinical sexual dimorphism in patients with adrenal incidentaloma and (possible) autonomous cortisol secretion

Marina Ljiljana , Ivovic Miomira , Sojat Antoan Stefan , Dugic Bogdan , Tancic-Gajic Milina , Arizanovic Zorana , Saravinovska Kristina , Petkovic Dunja-Simona , Petkovic Tijana , Antic Natalija , Kendereski Aleksandra , Vujovic Svetlana

Introduction: Many diseases of the adrenal cortex show a higher prevalence in women than men with incidence increasing with age in both genders.Aim: The aim was to determine the possible sexual dimorphism in patients with adrenal incidentaloma (AI) and (possible) autonomous cortisol secretion ((P)ACS).Methods: This was an observational, cross-sectional study of 381 patients with AI that were functionally assessed in our Clinic. Aft...

One-hour glucose level of the oral glucose tolerance test: the new valuable indicator of insulin resistance in patients with adrenal incidentalomas

Sojat Antoan Stefan , Marina Ljiljana , Ivovic Miomira , Gajic Milina Tancic , Arizanovic Zorana , Milin-Lazovic Jelena , Pandurevic Srdjan , Kendereski Aleksandra , Vujovic Svetlana

One-hour (1 h) glucose level of the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was proven to be a better predictor of insulin resistance (IR) in nondiabetic population than the two-hour (2 h) postload glucose level. Specifically, the 8.6 mmol/l cut-off was shown to be an early marker of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). Previous studies have shown that nondiabetic patients with adrenal incidentalomas (AI) have higher IR than healthy control (HC). However, despite the subtle cortisol s...

The need for depression screening in patients with adrenal incidentalomas and (possible) autonomous cortisol secretion – the role of integrated care

Marina Ljiljana , Ivovic Miomira , Tancic-Gajic Milina , Arizanovic Zorana , Sojat Antoan Stefan , Pandurevic Srdjan , Radonjic Nevena , Dunjic-Kostic Bojana , Cirkovic Andja , Kendereski Aleksandra , Micic Dragan , Vujovic Svetlana

Hypercortisolism is associated with high prevalence of psychiatric disorders and major depression occurs in 50–60% of patients. According to the available literature it is still unknown if patients with (possible) autonomous cortisol secretion ((P)ACS) carry the risk of depressive disorders. The Beck Depression Inventory II (BDI-II) is a commonly used instrument for detecting and quantifying levels of depression and its validity as a screening instrument is well establish...

Typical obese patient with an adrenal incidentaloma is a menopausal female with an unilateral nonfunctioning tumor – a single centre experience

IntroductionThe connection between obesity and tumorigenesis has been well established.AimThe aim of this study was to elucidate if there are any demographic and functional differences in adrenal incidentalomas (AI) with respect to different body mass index (BMI) categories.Patients and methodsThis was an observational, cross sectional study. The AI cohort consist...
