Hepatopathy of Mauriac síndrome: a case report

Tirado Antonio Moreno , Lazaro Paloma Gonzalez , Montero Benitez Maria Zhao , Torrecilla Pedro Jimenez , Val Zaballos Florentino Del , Meneses Amparo Lomas

We report the case of a 34-year-old woman with a personal history of type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) since she was 9 years old. Very poor chronic metabolic control stands out despite multiple insulin schemes with multiple complications: nephropathy, retinopathy and peripheral neuropathy. She was admitted to the hospitalization floor due to diabetic ketoacidosis. At admission Hba1c of 15.3%. During admission after treatment with IV insulin, improvement in glycemic control. Nine ...

Clinical presentation, treatment approach and outcomes of patients with prolactinomas in real-life clinical practice: a single center experience

Vicente Almudena , Satre Julia , Zaballos Florentino , Luque Ines , Luque Alessandra , Castro Enrique , Maqueda Esther , Marco Amparo , Lopez Jose

Introduction: Generously supported by IPSEN)-->Prolactin (PRL) -secreting adenomas are about 40% of all pituitary adenomas. Their clinical symptoms are mainly related to development of secondary hypogonadism and/or tumor mass effects. Dopamine agonists (DA) are first-line drugs for prolactinoma patients due to their effectiveness in normalizing PRL levels and shrinking tumour mass. Surgery is an option for DA failure or tumour mass e...

Radiofrequency and ethanol ablation for benign thyroid nodules: case series

Jimenez Torrecilla Pedro , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Montalban Mendez Cristina , Zhao Montero Benitez Maria , del Val Zaballos Florentino , Gomez Garcia Ines

Introduction: Thyroid nodule is a frequent condition, being diagnosed in up to 70% of subjects who had undergone thyroid ultrasound. Around 90-95% of them became being benign and, if the do not cause compressive symptoms or esthetical problems, they do not need specific therapy, only clinical follow up. Traditionally, thyroidectomy has been the main therapeutic option in these cases. Radiofrequency and ethanol ablations are recently introduced non-invasive therapies that permi...

Thyrotropin-secreting pituitary tumor: a rare entity

Torrecilla Pedro Jimenez , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Montero Benitez Maria Zhao , Lomas Meneses Amparo , Del Val Zaballos Florentino , Contreras Pascual Cristina

TSH-secreting pituitary adenomas are a rare cause of hyperthyroidism. The diagnosis should be considered in all hyperthyroid patients, especially those with a diffuse goiter and no extrathyroidal manifestations of Graves’ disease. Most TSH-secreting adenomas secrete only TSH. Most patients have the typical symptoms and signs ofhyperthyroidism (eg, palpitations, tremor, heat intolerance), but a few patients have mild or even no hyperthyroid symptoms. Other clinical feature...

Spontaneous involution of a cystic pituitary adenoma

Zhao Montero Benitez Maria , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Moreno Tirado Antonio , Jimenez Torrecilla Pedro , Contreras Pascual Cristina , Del Val Zaballos Florentino , Lomas Meneses Amparo , Gomez Garcia Ines

Pituitary adenomas (PAs) account for 15-20% of intracranial tumors. PA with a cystic component are characterized in the MRI by a sellar, symmetrical, round or ovoid mass that enhances on T1- or T2-weighted images but does not concentrate gadolinium. We present the case of a 48-year-old man who in a headache study by Neurology requested a CT scan showing a cystic pituitary macroadenoma of 1.25cm confirmed by pituitary MRI. In the initial analysis, the pituitary function was pre...

Clinical features and endocrine evaluation of non-functioning pituitary adenomas at a secondary level hospital

Pascual Cristina Contreras , Lazaro Paloma Gonzalez , Fernandez Julia Silva , del Val Zaballos Florentino , Alfonso Francisco Javier Gomez , Agredos Alvaro Garcia-Manzanares Vazquez-de , Garcia Ines Rosa Gomez

Introduction: Non-functioning pituitary adenomas are relatively common. A large number of these tumors are asintomathic pituitary microadenomas, that are increasingly detected because of sensitive imaging techniques improves. Those tumors that require treatment are generally macroadenomas and come to medical attention because of mass effect (visual field defects, headache, …) and/or hypopituitarism.Objective: To assess non-functioning pituitary ade...

Secondary amenorrhea as unique manifestation of acromegaly due to giant pituitary adenoma

Contreras Pascual Cristina , Gonzalez Lazaro Paloma , Silva Fernandez Julia , del Val Zaballos Florentino , Garcia-Manzanares Vaquez-de Agredos Alvaro , Javier Gomez Alfonso Francisco , Rosa Gomez Garcia Ines

Introduction: Pituitary adenomas are considered to be benign tumors that are diagnosed by its sympthoms (secondary to compression or hormonal secretion) or incidentally in an imaging technique performed because of another reason. ‘Silent’ somatotrophinomas are very rare. This type of adenoma is typically large and despite it presents with mild or no acromegalic features it usually develops hormone secretion.A case report: A 29-year-old spanish ...

Response to stroke in diabetic versus non-diabetic patients. Should Diabetes education systematically include advise on stroke symptoms and the correct response to them?

Gonzalez-Lazaro Paloma , Silva-Fernandez Julia , Garcia-Ruiz Rafael , Garcia-Ruiz Rosa , Gomez-Alfonso Francisco Javier , Del Val-Zaballos Florentino , Torres-Arroyo Belvis , Gonzalez-Pereira Carolina

Introduction: Stroke is the second cause of death in the world and the first cause of disability. It is also the second cause of Diabetes-related death. The success of reperfusion therapies is time-dependent, with most delays being patient-related. We investigated the response to stroke in diabetic patients (DM), as their risk of stroke is increased by 1,8-6 times.Material and Methods: Consecutive patients with acute stroke or transient ischemic attack w...

Does maternal thyroid autoimmunity predict adverse pregnancy outcomes?

Sastre-Marcos Julia , Val-Zaballos Florentino , Ruiz-Gines Miguel Angel , Olivar-Azuara Monica , Agudo-Macazaga Mercedes , Fontelles-Alcover Roser , Maldonado Dolores , Lopez-Lopez Jose

Background: Previous studies of association between maternal thyroid autoimmunity and adverse pregnancy outcomes have produced inconsistent results.Objective: To examine whether thyroid autoimmunity detected at first trimester screening is predictive of a range of adverse obstetric and fetal outcomes.Patients and methods: We studied 438 women with singleton pregnancies who underwent first trimester screening test between June and J...

Obstructive hydrocephalus and intracranial hypertension caused by a giant pituitary non-functioning adenoma

Silva-Fernandez Julia , Garcia-Ruiz Rafael , Gomez-Alfonso Francisco Javier , Val-Zaballos Florentino Del , Garcia-Manzanares Alvaro , Lopez-Iglesias Maria , Gomez-Garcia Ines R

Introduction: Patients with large non-functioning pituitary macroadenomas often have symptoms due to varying degree of hypopituitarism and/or mass effect on visual structures, while presentation with hydrocephalus is extremely uncommon.Case report: We describe an 82-year-old man who was referred to the Neurology department of our hospital because of rapidly progressive memory loss. The patient was in good health until ten weeks earlier, when he insidious...
