Introduction: Thyrotropin (TSH) secreting pituitary adenomas (TSHomas) are very rare and account for less than 2% of all pituitary adenomas. They present with elevated levels of fT4 and normal to high levels of TSH. About 25% of TSHomas co-secrete other anterior pituitary hormones. Growth hormone (GH) is the most commonly co-secreted hormone, followed by prolactin (PRL) and gonadotropins. Herein, we report a case of pituitary adenoma with simultaneous secretion of TSH and GH.<...

Introduction: Subclinical hypercortisolism (SH) has been reported in 5–20% of patients with adrenal incidentalomas (AIs), with various cardiometabolic consequences. We intended to investigate the contribution of DHEAS to standard testing, as another indicator of autonomous cortisol secretion in AIs.Materials and methods: Ninety consecutive patients (n=90) with AIs were included in a prospective cohort study. SH was diagnosed if ≥2 cri...
