Coexistence of primary mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma of thyroid and papillary thyroid microcarcinoma in a background of hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Duger Hakan , Calapkulu Murat , Ucan Bekir , Cakal Erman , Ozbek Mustafa , Yılmazer Demet

Introduction: Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common endocrine cancer however extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) of the thyroid gland is quite rare. The simultaneous association of both cancers is much more rare.Case report: 65-year-old woman underwent a thyroid ultrasound examination due to palpable thyroid nodules. Thyroid ultrasound revealed thyroiditis and multiple nodules on the right and ...

Somatostatin Analogue Treatment of a Persistant TSH-Secreting Adenoma: a report of case

Unsal İlknur Ozturk , Cakal Erman , Apaydın Mahmut , Karakose Melia , Ucan Bekir , Ozbek Mustafa

Introduction: Thyrotropinomas are usually considered when the TSH level is inappropriately elevated or normal in a hyperthyroid patient with increased serum T4 levels, regardless of the presence of visible tumor on imaging. The prevalence of these adenomas, which account for 0.5–3% of all pituitary tumors has been estimated to be around one case per million. Most thyrotroph adenomas are large and invasive at diagnosis, and present with signs and symptoms of an ...

Plasma visfatin/pre-B-cell colony enhancing factor levels in hypothyroid patients and relationship of these levels with thyroid autoimmunity and atherosclerosis

Ucan Bekir , Kebapci Nur , Uslu Sema , Kara Mehmet , Efe Belgin , Oner Setenay

Visfatin/pre-B-cell enhancement factor is an adipocytokine, which is found in the visceral fat tissue and enhances the growth of precursor of B cells through showing synergy with IL7 and stem cell factors. Other cytokines released from the adipose tissue are TNFα and IL6, which has been shown to be related with pathogenesis of insulin resistance, diabetes, dyslipidaemia, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. Our aim was to determine the relationship of plasma visfatin/pre-B-...

Massive pulmonary embolism in a newly diagnosed acromegaly patient

Hepsen Sema , Ucan Bekir , Akhanli Pinar , Ozturk Unsal Ilknur , Cakal Erman

Introduction: Acromegaly is caused by growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) excess and leads to various comorbidities. However, the association between acromegaly and thromboembolic diseases is unclear. Herein, we present a newly diagnosed acromegaly patient with massive pulmonary embolism.Case report: A 61-year-old female was hospitalized with acromegaly pre-diagnosis. She complained about extensive arthralgia and snoring. She had h...

The diagnostic value of elastography score and strain indexfor the evaluation of thyroid micronodules

Cakal Erman , Karakose Melia , Unsal Ilknur , Sahin Mustafa , Ucan Bekir , Ozbek Mustafa

Background and aim: In the general population, the frequency of thyroid micronodules is increasing and the prevalence of malignancy is higher in nodules at this size. The ultrasonographic features of these nodules are neither spesific nor sensitive Elastography gives information about the degree of hardness at the tissue level and provides assessment of malignancy risk of the nodule. The aim of the study was to investigate the diagnostic value of elastography in patients with ...

Introduction: Patients with parathyroid carcinoma (PCA) and synchronous disease in other parathyroid glands have been reported in the literature. Here, we report a patient who had persistant hypercalcemia after operated from parathyroid carcinoma and improvement of hypercalcemia after the subsequent operation from atypically localised parathyroid adenoma.Case report: A 62-year-old man presented with a history of headache, fatigue, and nervousness.

Adrenocortical cancer mimicking lymphoma on magnetic resonance scan

Calapkulu Murat , Erkam Sencar Muhammed , Duger Hakan , Kizilgul Muhammed , Ucan Bekir , Ozturk Unsal İlknur , Akhanli Pinar , Cakal Erman

Background: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare cancer that originates from the cortex of the adrenal gland. Although its exact etiology is not clear, it has been found to be associated with some hereditary cancer syndromes. Sometimes patients present with hormonal excess symptoms (virilization, Cushing’s syndrome) or local symptoms consistent with an abdominal mass. In ACC, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are preferred imaging modaliti...

Background: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is one of the most common endocrine diseases. Parathyroid carcinoma, a rare entity, comprises a small percentage of patients with hyperparathyroidism and represents 0.005% of all cancers and <1% of cases of PHPT.Material and methods: Patients was diagnosed at the Endocrinology Department of Diskapi Yildirim Beyazit Training and Research Hospital between 2010 and 2016. Ultrasound and 99mTc-Sestamibi confi...
