Objectives: Patients with thyroid dysfunction due to AITD have been found to have increased oxidative stress. Possible associations of oxidative stress with thyroid hormone (TH) and thyroid autoantibodies (ThAb) levels in euthyroid patients with autoimmune thyroiditis have not been adequately studied. We examined possible associations of oxidative stress markers with TH levels and with the presence of ThAb in euthyroid women with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (with or without T...

Background: Swyer syndrome is a type of pure gonadal dysgenesis 46 XY caryotype in phenotypically female patients. A rare case of Swyer syndrome complicated by dysgerminoma and Retiform Sertoli-Leydig cell’s tumor is reported.Case presentation: A 20-year-old phenotypically female patient presented to our department with primary amenorrhea. She was 1.68 m and weighed 82 kg (BMI 28). She presented with minimal breast development, sparse axillary and p...

Introduction: Polymorphisms of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (AGEs), RAGE, have been associated with autoimmune disorders and their complications. There are no studies concerning Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT); the aim of our study was to investigate the possible role of two RAGE polymorphisms (−429T>C, −374T>A) in combination with indices of oxidative status in women with HT.Design: We examined 300 euth...
