Subclinical hyperthyroidism and insulin resistance in women with simple goiter

Tzioras Constantinos , Vryonidou Andromachi , Phenekos Constantinos

Introduction: Thyrotoxicosis has been shown to cause deterioration of glucose levels in patients with DM 2 while return to euthyroidism results in better glycaemic control. Studies in normal subjects suggest that increased thyroid hormones may aggravate insulin resistance and decrease pancreatic secretion of insulin but the exact underlying mechanisms have not been completely elucidated. The purpose of this study was to investigate if this also occurs in subclinical hyperthyro...

High incidence of glucose metabolism disorders in patients undergoing coronary angiography without history of diabetes

Paschou Stavroula A , Kiokas Sotirios , Avdikos Grigorios , Lazaris Efstathios , Vryonidou Andromachi

Introduction: The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of glycemic disorders in patients undergoing coronary angiography with no prediagnosed type 2 diabetes (T2D), as well as the association of the glycemic status with the extent of the coronary artery disease (CAD).Patients and methods: We studied 170 consecutive patients (134M/36W), 63.9±13.1 (23–95) years old, with not known T2D, who underwent coronary angiography. HbA1c was m...

Pituitary apoplexy in clinically nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas: experience of a single center

Karagiannis Apostolos , Boufas Dimitrios , Tzioras Konstantinos , Seretis Andreas , Vryonidou Andromachi

Introduction: Generously supported by IPSEN)-->Clinically nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (CNFPA) represent 25–50% of all pituitary lesions. They may be asymptomatic and discovered incidentally or they may be diagnosed due to visual impairment or symptoms of pituitary hormone insufficiency. There is little data on apoplexy frequency in the CNFPA.The aim of our study was to assess the frequency of CNFPA a...

Management of persistent subclinical hypercortisolism post left adrenalectomy in a patient with primary bilateral macronodular adrenal hyperplasia with aberrant receptors

Moustaki Melpomeni , Papadimitriou Kasiani , Papanikolaou Vasiliki , Cherolidi Eleni , Rigana Maria , Kyriakopoulos Georgios , Kalogeris Nikolaos , Vryonidou Andromahi

Introduction: Endogenous subclinical hypercortisolism occurs in 5-30% of patients with adrenal incidentalomas. Adrenal adenoma is the commonest cause of autonomous cortisol secretion (ACS), while primary bilateral macronodular adrenal hyperplasia (PBMAH) is rare. In both, ACS results from activation of the cAMP/PKA pathway. This may be triggered by ligands, other than ACTH, acting upon aberrant G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), which may also control locally produced ACTH i...

Metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma without identifiable primary tumor in a patient with IgG4-related thyroiditis: challenging diagnosis and management of a rare case

Papadimitriou Kasiani , Moustaki Melpomeni′ , Tsitsimpis Anastasios , Papanikola Nektaria , Dermentzoglou Alexandros , Spanou Loukia , Vryonidou Andromahi

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...

The differences between normocalcemic and hypercalcemic primary hyperparathyroidism: a tertiary center′s experience

Kalogeris Nikolaos , Papanikola Nektaria , Herolidi Eleni , Palioura Eleni , Papanikolaou Vasiliki , Loi Vasiliki , Vryonidou Andromahi

Introduction: Normocalcemic Primary Hyperparathyroidism is today considered a variant of Primary Hyperparathyroidism. It is characterized by persistently normal calcium levels and increased levels of parathyroid hormone, after the exclusion of other causes of secondary hyperparathyroidism. We aimed to compare clinical, biochemical and imaging data from patients with normocalcemic and hypercalcemic primary hyperparathyroidism. Methods: This is a retrospec...

Glycemic control in Type 1 Diabetes patients using multiple daily insulin injections (MDII) vs continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII)

Tsitsimpis Anastasios , Cherolidi Helen , Kalogeris Nikolaos , Spanou Loukia , Mouslech Tzant , Somali Maria , Georgiopoulos Georgios , Vryonidou Andromachi

Objective: Glycemic control of patients with type 1 diabetes is mainly based on insulin administration. The ongoing technological developments in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) provide new treatment strategies, with better glycemic control. This study assessed the clinical impact of two treatment strategies in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D): multiple daily insulin injections (MDII) vs continuous subcutaneous insulin i...

Pituitary apoplexy clinical presentation and management: the experience of a single center

Dalakoura S , Kalogeris N , Gyftaki R , Herolidi E , Dermentzoglou A , Loi V , Paschou S , Barkas K , Vryonidou A

Purpose: Pituitary apoplexy is a rare endocrine emergency due to abrupt hemorrhage or infarction of a preexisting pituitary tumor. We aimed to present clinical and biochemical characteristics as well as the management of patients presented with pituitary apoplexy at our department.Methods: Review of the records of all patients presenting with pituitary apoplexy at the Endocrinology department over the last 20 years.Results: During ...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy: always exclude pheochromocytoma

Gyftaki R , Klogeris N , Dalakoura S , Cherolidi E , Aggelaki M , Bourboulis N , Vryonidou A

Background: Pheochromocytomas are catecholamine-producing neuroendocrine tumors, arising from the adrenal medulla or from paraganglionic chromafin tissue. Their clinical presentation, mainly attributable to the increased catecholamine production and it is highly variable. We herein present a case of a 42-year-old female patient with recurrent episodes of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy due to a pheochromocytoma.Case presentation: The patient presented two years...

Diagnostic performance of non-invasive markers for the presence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in premenopausal women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome

Vassilatou Evangeline , Lafoyianni Sophia , Vassiliadi Dimitra-Argyro , Ioannidis Dimitrios , Paschou Stavroula , Mizamtzidi Maria , Vryonidou Andromachi

Introduction: Several markers based on anthropometric and biochemical parameters like fatty liver index (FLI), lipid accumulation product (LAP) index and visceral adiposity index (VAI), have been proposed for the detection of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).Objective: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of FLI, LAP and VAI as markers of NAFLD in premenopausal women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), assessed for hepatic steato...
