Impact of glucose metabolism disorders on IGF-1 levels in patients with acromegaly

Dogansen Sema Ciftci , Yalin Gulsah Yenidunya , Tanrikulu Seher , Yarman Sema

Objective: To evaluate the presence of glucose metabolism abnormalities and their impact on IGF-1 levels in patients with acromegaly.Methods: Ninety-three acromegalic patients (52 male/41 female) were included in this study who were seperated into three groups as normal glucose tolerance (NGT), prediabetes and diabetes mellitus (DM). Insulin resistance (IR) was calculated with homeostasis model assessment (HOMA). HOMA-IR >2.5 or ≤2.5 were defin...

Yalin Gulsah Y , Cenik Fuat , Celik Huseyin , Kumbasar Abdulbaki

Introduction: Serum 25(OH) vitamin D levels are shown to be significantly lower and associated with lower remission rates in Graves disease. In this study we aimed to investigate the impact of baseline vitamin D levels on thyroid volume in patients with new-onset Graves disease.Materials and methods: This is a monocenter cross sectional study with a total of 61 new-onset Graves disease patients (n:61, F: 40, M:21) who were divided into two groups accordi...

Purpose: Somatotrophinomas have been shown to demonstrate T2-weighted signal intensity (WSI) on MRI that is correlated with clinicopathological findings and response to treatment. Therefore, we aimed to investigate these correlations in functional pituitary adenomas, including prolactinoma and corticotrophinoma. Material and MethodsPatients with somatotrophinoma (n=87), prolactinoma (n=78) and corticotrophinoma (n=33) were invo...

A 41-year-old woman was admitted with headache and hypertension. She described worsening of headaches in the last 2 months. On physical examination blood pressure was 150/90 mmHg, and grade 1 hypertensive retinopathy was present. Her sister died at the age of 24 due to pancreas neuroendocrine tumour and her mother was followed up with multiple pancreatic cysts. Abdomen MRI revealed a 6 cm phaeochromocytoma lesion on the right surrenal and multiple cysts in the pancreas, kidney...

Fatigue as the presenting symptom of multiple endocrine neoplasia of type 2A

Gul Nurdan , Kubat-Uzum Ayse , Yenidunya-Yalin Gulsah , Tanakol Refik , Aral Ferihan

Clinical spectrum of phaeochromocytoma syndromes are very heterogeneous. Sometimes life threatening hypertensive attacks may be the presenting symptom or the clinical picture may be subtle that a nonspecific symptom like fatigue can lead to diagnosis. We herein present two phaeochromocytoma cases with distinct clinical features.Case 1: A 20-year-old female patient admitted to emergency department with blurred vision and headache. She experienced headache...

Presence of Paget’s disease in a patient with endometrium carcinoma

Uzum Ayse Kubat , Yalin Gulsah Yenidunya , Gul Nurdan , Canbaz Bulent , Dogansen Sema Ciftci , Bilgic Bilge , Ozbey Nese Colak

Introduction: Isolated bone metastasis of endometrium carcinoma is rare; but if it occurs, pelvis and vertebrae are involved mostly. Co-existence of undiagnosed Paget’s disease in a patient with malignancy causes major problems in differential diagnosis.Case: A 77 year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with severe pelvic pain. She had been diagnosed with inoperable endometrium adenocarcinoma for over a year. Metastatic bone disease was suspecte...

The association between glycemic markers and variability with plasma adipocytokine levels and markers of endothelium dysfunction in women with pregestational diabetes mellitus

Introduction: Pregnant women with pre-existing diabetes are at greater risk of perinatal morbidity and diabetic complications. Glycemic control is the greatest impotance for both mothers and infants due to the risk of congenital anomalies, perinatal mortality and significant morbidity in the short and long term. Continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) is a novel tool to assess 24-h glucose fluctuations. In pregestational diabetes, CGMS may have an important role for excell...
