Swirska Joanna , Matyjaszek-Matuszek Beata , Czuczwar Piotr , Zwolak Agnieszka

Purpose: We sought to determine if in the group of patients who underwent gynecologic abdominal interventions diabetes was an independent risk factor of perioperative complications.Material and methods: The study group included 62 women from both the diabetic and the control group who underwent elective gynecologic laparotomies such as hysterectomy or adnexectomy. The patients from diabetic group were pair-matched with patients without diabetes based on ...

Catecholamin crisis as a first manifestation of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A

Zwolak Agnieszka , Rudzki Grzegorz , Swirska Joanna , Tarach Jerzy

Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A (MEN2A) is a multi-glandular autosomal dominant genetic disorder which, most typically, includes medullary carcinoma of the thyroid, pheochromocytoma and primary hyperparathyroidism. The authors present a case study of a young man in whom cardiogenic shock was the first manifestation of pheochromocytoma and MEN2A.Case report: A 30-year-old man without a past history of hypertension or any other chronic m...

Urbanczuk Magdalena , Lewicki Marcin , Zwolak Agnieszka , Urbanczuk Marcin , Swirska Joanna , Lenart-Lipinska Monika , Tarach Jerzy S

Introduction: Calcium ions (Ca2+) play an essential role in process of correct β-cell insulin secretion. Hypocalcemia impairs insulin secretion leading to glucose metabolism disorders and insulin resistance.Case study: 62 -year old female patient with 18 years history of type 2 diabetes, treated with insulin, suspected of hypoparathyroidism, was admitted to the Department and Clinic of Endocrinology, Medical University of Lublin because o...

Orbitopathy as a manifestation of Immunoglobulin-G4-related disease – case report

Zwolak Agnieszka , Dudzinska Marta , Swirska Joanna , Malicka Joanna , Daniluk Jadwiga , Tarach Jerzy S

Introduction: Immunoglobulin-G4-related disease (IgG4RD) is a multidisciplinary problem due to plasmatic cells infiltration and areas of fibrosis in the affected tissues. In IgG4RD, elevation of serum IgG4 immunoglobulins is present. Clinically, the disease is mainly manifested as: autoimmune pancreatitis, salivary gland involvement, sclerosing cholangitis, lymphadenopathy, lachrymal gland enlargement, retroperitoneal fibrosis or orbital pseudotumor.

The prevalence of metabolic syndrome in adult patients with long-standing hypopituitarism who receive adequate supplemental therapy

Zwolak Agnieszka , Swirska Joanna , Dudzinska Marta , Kurowska Maria , Daniluk Jadwiga , Tarach Jerzy S

Introduction: Hypopituitarism is characterized by the absence of pituitary hormones. Depending on what pituitary hormones are missing and what is the etiology of hypopituitarism, its clinical manifestation varies. Apart from evident symptoms and signs of hypopituitarism due to hormonal insufficiencies, several studies reveal that long-standing hypopituitarism, including particularly absence of GH, is related to higher risk of metabolic syndrome.Objective...

Hyponatremia as a first symptom of hypopituitarism due to pituitary metastasis of gastric cancer: Case study

Zwolak Agnieszka , Lewicki Marcin , Tywanek Ewa , Swirska Joanna , Dudzinska Marta , Tarach Jerzy

Introduction: Hypopituitarism can be caused by a number of different etiologic factors including metastatic cancer. Metastasis to the pituitary gland is rare, accounting for only 1.8% of all metastases, and is often detected incidentally by symptoms associated with hormone dysfunction like hyponatremia. Breast and lung cancer are the primary neoplasms with well established properties of pituitary infiltration. Metastases from gastric cancer are unusual and constitute less than...
