Introduction: IgG4-related thyroiditis (IgG4-RTD) is a rare fibroinflammatory disorder. It is characterized by dense lymphocyte infiltration (mainly IgG4+ plasma cells), enlargement and dysfunction of the thyroid gland. IgG4-RTD includes mostly cases of Hashimoto’s (HT) but also of Riedel’s and Graves’ thyroiditis. Diagnosis is set according to imaging and histopathological criteria. Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common form of thyroid cancer (~9...

Objectives: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) has varying clinical course with familial cases (fMTC) diagnosed earlier than sporadic ones (sMTC). We examined the presentation of these entities in our centre.Methods: 223 MTC patients (familial: 42.6%, males: 36.8%) were followed for 0.9–30 years (mean 6.23±5.9, median 4.0 years). 44 (19.7%) fMTC patients were operated after genetic screening.Results: Median age at diagnosi...

Introduction: In recent years, micro papillary thyroid carcinomas (mPTCs; ≤1.0 cm) are increasingly diagnosed. Although clinical course is usually favourable, disease persistence may occur and multiple treatments needed. We examined factors that could be predictors of clinical behaviour and disease persistence.Patients and methods: 478 mPTC patients (78.9% females) followed-up for 0.6–10 years were classified according to tumour size in group ...

A case of euglycaemic ketoacidosis and concomitant acute pancreatitis in a diabetic patient treated with SGLT2i and GLP-1RA

IntroductionGlucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RA) and sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) are the two novel classes of anti-diabetic agents with compelling efficacy, in terms of glucose-lowering and cardio-renal protection. Euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (EDKA) is a serious rare adverse effect of SLT2i while the use of GLP-1RA has been scarcely linked with acute pancreatitis in humans.Case presentatio...
