Lp(A) levels in thyroid disfunctions

Pop-Radu Cristina-Corina , Iazigian Ana

The aim of the study was to assess lipid status in subjects with hypothyroidism (overt and subclinical) and hyperthyroidism. Therefore, we analyzed the relationship between the levels of blood lipids (Lp(a), Apo AI, Apo B, Apo AI/B, total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), LDL, HDL, LDL) and TSH, FT4, T3, TPOAb concentration. The study groups included 38 subjects with overt hypothyroidism (mean±S.E.M., age 48.6±13.25 years), 30 ...

Cristea Cristina , Ciornohuz Adriana , Zbranca Eusebie

Graves’ thyrotoxicosis frequently occurs after delivery through immune rebound mechanism. A 34 years old patient, in postpartum period was referred to rheumatologist for gradually gait impairment. Examination showed only weakness of pelvic girdle muscles which required an extensive differential diagnosis including: neurological diseases and inflammatory/metabolic/toxic myopathies. Routine lab tests were unremarkable except low cholesterol (128 mg/dl) and slightly increase...

An immunohistochemical study on pituitary adenomas

Burcea Iulia Florentina , Capatina Cristina , Poiana Catalina

Introduction: Pituitary adenomas (PA) represent approximately 15% of all intracranial neoplasms, with a global incidence of 15,20 per million per year. The immunohistochemical analysis of PA is necessary for diagnosis and plays an important role in the modern classification system of pituitary tumors.Material and methods: Samples from 142 surgically resected PA were studied immunohistochemically using antisera for 6 anterior pituitary hormones. Reticulin...

Recurrent hyperparathyroidism after total parathyroidectomy with autotransplantation in a patient with long-term hemodialysis

Serban Cristina , Baculescu Nicoleta , Poiana Catalina

Background: Recurrenthyperparathyroidism following total parathyroidectomy with autotransplantation in patients with end-stage renal disease who are on hemodialysis is not an uncommon condition and can be due to hyperplastic autografted tissue, remnant parathyroid tissues in the neck or in the presence of ectopic and/or supernumerary parathyroid glands.Case report: We report the case of a 66-year-old patient with a history of chronic kidney disease on he...

Intentional insulin overdose in a type 2 diabetic patient and depressive disorder

Cosma Daniel , Alina Silaghi Cristina , Silaghi Horatiu

Intentional insulin overdose in diabetic patients is a rare critical situation. The severity is due to numerous neurological complications, electrolyte disturbances, liver and lung damage or death. A 59-year old female, under treatment for depressive disorder, diagnosed with type 2 diabetes since 2016 and treated with glargine (20 IU/day), lispro (30 IU/day) insulin and Metformin (500 mg/day) was admitted to the Internal Medicine department via ER (emergency room) for repetiti...

Cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia in a male patient with type 3 polyglandular autoimmune syndrome - a rare association

Cosma Daniel , Silaghi Horatiu , Alina Silaghi Cristina

Cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia (CLH) is a spectrum of benign conditions characterized by reactive B- and T-cell cutaneous lymphocytic infiltrates. The most common presentation of reactive CLH is as a solitary red skin papule, nodule, or plaque but 10–15% of patients present with more generalized or multifocal skin lesions. A 40-year old male, initially diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM), with a family history of autoimmune thyroid disease, vitiligo and type 2 DM...

Nijmegen breakage syndrome with unusual presentation: a case report

Dumitru Teodora , Anisia Miruna , Andrei Diana-Cristina , Preda Cristina , Lavinia Caba , Ungureanu Maria Christina

Introduction: Nijmegen breakage syndrome(NBS) represents a rare autosomal recesive disorder, characterized by severe chromosomal instability. It is caused by mutations in the NBN gene, which product, nibrin, belongs to the hMre11/hRad50 protein complex, critical for processing DNA double-strand breaks during mitotic and meiotic recombination. The hallmarks of NBS are growth retardation, microcephaly, premature ovarian failure(POI) in females, immunodeficiency and predispositio...

Pituitary macroadenoma, incidental finding after soccer match

Valles Cristina Serrano , Sanchez Higinio Ortega , Pascual Cristina Contreras , Rosas Karol Almendra Alvarado

Introduction: Thyrotropin-secreting pituitary tumors (TSH-omas) are a rare disorder and an infrequent cause of hyperthyroidism. The prevalence in the general population being 1 to 2 cases per million. However, recents studies have demonstrated an increase of TSH-omas over time. The increased number of cases principally results from the ultrasensitive TSH immunometric assays and from improved general practioner endocrinologist awaress. There is an inappropriate secretion of TSH...

Iancu Cristina , Gaita Isabela , Tomulescu Victor , Iorgulescu Radu , Capatina Cristina , Radian Serban , Poiana Catalina

Background: Association of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) and cortisol-producing adrenal adenoma is not part of the classical MEN syndromes. We present a clinical case raising the question of a common etiology for these tumours.Case Presentation: A 58-year-old female presented in 2010 for the investigation of a 6 cm left adrenal tumour incidentally discovered by abdominal CT. Medical history included smoking, obesity, myocardial infarction, hyper...
