Evaluation of insulin resistance and endocrine hormone parameters on etiopathogenesis of acne vulgaris, analyzing whether there is a change in insulin resistance and hormonal parameters after oral isotretinoin treatment

Kocyigit Suleyman Emre , Sahin Mustafa , Corapcioglu Demet

Introduction: Acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit and it can be seen on postadolescence period. Several studies show that adrenal and pituitary hormones have an important role in the pathogenesis. The studies which show the isotretinoin treatment takes effect on hormones are phenomenal in the literature. The aim of our study is to identify a hormonal alteration in the etiopathogenesis of acne vulgaris and to observe whether there is an alt...

A case of lymphocytic hypophysitis presented as hemorrhagic pituitary macroadenoma

Aydogan Imge Berna , Emral Rifat , Corapcioglu Demet

Introduction: Lymphocytic hypophysitis is an uncommon disease of the pituitary gland mimicking pituitary macroadenoma on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).Case: A 37-year-old female admitted to our clinic with headache, amenorrhea, polyuria and history of pituitary microadenoma. On laboratory examinations, prolactin level was mildly elevated (42 ng/ml) and FSH–LH levels were normal (2.4–4.04 mIU/ml) despite the low estrogen level (<20 pg/ml)...

Is Pegvisomant correct choice for acromegaly patient with dilated cardiyomypathy?

Cinel Murat , Keskin Caglar , Emral Rifat , Corapcioglu Demet

Objectives: Acromegaly may arise with several clinical presentations and cardiac involvement is the most important factor affecting the course of the disease.Case: A 32-years old man admitted to hospital complaining with shortness of breath. After initial evaluation he was diagnosed as ‘cardiac failure’. Cardiac evaluation revealed that he had ‘dilated cardiomyopathy’ with ejection fraction (EF) of 20%, global hypokinesia without valv...

Assessment of arrhythmia risk due to hypoglycemia with continuous glucose monitoring device and 24-hour holter monitoring

Sahin Mustafa , Keskin Caglar , Cinel Murat , Bahceci Begum , Corapcioglu Demet

Previous studies have shown increased hypoglycemia-associated cardiac arrhythmia and mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.In this study, we aimed to evaluate the response of gastrointestinal hormones and glucoregulatory hormones to the oral glucose tolerance test in patients who were diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia and to evaluate the risk of arrhythmia with long-holter ECG measurements in patients with a diagnosis o...

Surgical outcome of thyroid nodules with atypia of undetermined significance in fine needle aspiration biopsy

Karaoglan Murat , Emral Rifat , Ceyhan Koray , Cinel Murat , Bahcecioglu Adile Begum , Corapcioglu Demet

Thyroid nodules have 3–7% freuquency in general population. FNA biopsy is an important diagnostic tool for patients with thyroid nodules. There are many reporting systems for FNA biopsy and Bethesda system is the most common one. The aim of this retrospective study, detect the atypia of undetermined significance (AUS) rates in the patients who performed FNA biopsy and evaluate the concomittant biopsy results of this patients and malignancy rates in the patients who were c...

What should central diabetes insipidus and panhypopituitarism point out in a patient with lung adenocarcinoma in remission?

Canlar Sule , Keskin Caglar , Canpolat Asena Gokcay , Gullu Sevim , Corapcioglu Demet

Objectives: Pituitary gland is an uncommon site for metastasis of malignant tumors. Breast and lung are the most common cancer sites. Most pituitary metastases are asymptomatic, with only 7% symptomatic and central diabetes insipidus is the most common symptom.Case presentation: A 54 year-old woman presented with nause, emesis and diplopia to emergency department. Her relatives stated that she had poliuria, nocturia, polidipsia for three months. Her hist...

Evaluation of circulating irisin levels in patients with never treated overt hyperthyrodisim

Gokcay Canpolat Asena , Sahin Mustafa , Corapcioglu Demet , Emral Rıfat , Rıza Uysal Ali

Aims: Because of an increased metabolic activity and thermogenesis in hyperthyroidism, we aimed to evaluate the association of serum irisin with thyroid hormones.Methods: A total of 25 hyperthyroid patients and 24 age- and gender-matched healthy controls were enrolled. Serum irisin levels, thyroid hormones and body compositions were analyzed.Results: Serum irisin levels were significantly higher in hyperthyroid group (P&#6...

Could non-functional adrenal incidentaloma be a risk factor for atherosclerosis and metabolic disturbances?

Emral Rifat , Kose Ayla Demir , Corapcioglu Demet , Demir Ozgur , Uysal Ali Riza

Introduction: Non-functional adrenal incidentalomas (AI) are currently quite important since they can also cause metabolic disturbances. This study was designed to evaluate possible insulin resistance indicators and cardiovascular risk factors in patients with non-functional AI.Patients and methods: 83 patients with non-functional AI were enrolled to the study. Control group consisted of 56 patients without any adrenal lesion. Fasting blood glucose, and ...
