Cardiovascular risk factors in adult onset growth hormone deficiency (AO-GHD) without growth hormone replacement: follow-up period seven years

Djurdjevic Sandra Pekic , Doknic Mirjana , Miljic Dragana , Djurovic Marina Nikolic , Stojanovic Marko , Popovic Vera

Patients with hypopitutarism have higher cardiovascular morbidity and mortality rates than general population, as manifested by elevated fasting lipids and insulin resistance. The aim of our study was to evaluate the lipid levels and insulin responses during oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in adult onset growth hormone deficiency (AO-GHD), without growth hormone replacement during a follow-up period of seven years. Ten hypopituitary patients with operated non-functioning pi...

Bloch-sulzberger syndrome, hypothyroidism and a pituitary incidentaloma: a case report

Stojanovic Marko , Miljic Dragana , Doknic Mirjana , Djurovic Marina , Pekic Sandra , Nikolic Milos , Popovic Vera

A female patient, 34 years old, was referred to endocrinologist, for an incidentally discovered interstellar mass on MR, mild subclinical hypothyroidism and hyperprolactinemia, and irregular menstrual cycles. She was diagnosed with Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome (BSS) in neonatal age. Epilepsy, her most prominent component of BSS, was well controlled but only with triple anticonvulsant therapy (Valproate, Carbamazepine, Clonazepam). She was obese, clinically euthyroid, and exhibite...

Djurdjevic Sandra Pekic , Soldatovic Ivan , Doknic Mirjana , Miljic Dragana , Stojanovic Marko , Petakov Milan , Popovic Vera

Objective: People are at higher risk for malignancy as they get older or have a strong family history of cancer.Aim: To collect family history of cancer in a large cohort of patients with pituitary adenomas (PA) in Outpatient clinic from years 2005–2017.Results: Overall 46% of 1100 patients with PA had a family member affected with cancer. Breast cancer in family members was reported in 15.3% of patients with prolactinomas whi...

Introduction: Previous studies reported increased unfavorable metabolic phenotype in patients with active acromegaly.Aim of the study: We studied the metabolic phenotype in unselected cohort of 133 patients with active acromegaly (83 female, 62.4%), diagnosed at Clinic of Endocrinology, University Clinical Center, Belgrade, Serbia in the period 2007–2018. Mean age at diagnosis of acromegaly was 50.5±1.2 years and mean BMI was 28.4±0.4 kg/m...

Vertebral fractures are prevalent among patients with acromegaly in spite of normal bone mineral density reflecting overall duration of disease regardless of biochemical control or cure

Introduction: Skeletal complications of acromegaly are among its most persistent and invalidating impacts. Dual-X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) alone might be insufficient or even misleading for bone health assessment in acromegaly.Patients and methods: Patients with acromegaly (N=170) were classified as active (N=104), operatively cured (N=34) or medically controlled (N=32). 57 males and 113 females were included, 52.8 (22...

Bone mineral density and bone turnover markers in patients with schizophrenia treated with atypical antipsychotics

Doknic Mirjana , Maric Nadja , Britvic Dubravka , Pekic Sandra , Damjanovic Aleksandar , Djurovic Marina , Stojanovic Marko , Jasovic-Gasic Miroslava , Popovic Vera

According to the novel concept bone remodeling is centrally regulated (CNS). Leptin the adipocyte derived hormone acts on hypothalamus and by increasing sympathetic activity acts on osteoblasts to regulate bone formation. In patients with schizophrenia several factors have influence on bone metabolism. Schizophrenia per se, as a disease of central nervous system is associated with increased occurence of osteoporosis. Hyperprolactinemia as consequence of antipsychotic tr...

Screening for neuroendocrine dysfunction in patients after spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage

Djurdjevic Sandra Pekic , Jovanovic Vladimir , Stojanovic Marko , Djurovic Branko , Doknic Mirjana , Miljic Dragana , Nikolic-Djurovic Marina , Popovic Vera

Spontaneous subarahnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a recently identified risk factor for hipopituitarism, especially growth hormone (GH) and corticotroph deficiencies. The aim of this study is to perform the initial screening procedure to identify the patients with increased risk of neuroendocrine dysfunction after SAH in the chronic phase and to identify the possible predictor(s) for neuroendocrine dysfunction. Ninety-one patients (30 males, 61 females), age between 19 and 69 years ...

Miljic Dragana , Djurovic Marina , Pekic Sandra , Doknic Mirjana , Milic Natasa , Stojanovic Marko , Casanueva Felipe , Ghatei Mohammad , Popovic Vera

We have previously shown impaired neuroendocrine responses to ghrelin in patients with AN. The aim of this study was to investigate the metabolic responses during infusions of active ghrelin in severly malnourished patients with AN and compare them with responses of amenorrhoic AN patients who recovered body weight (PRAN) and constitutionally thin subjects (CTS) with regular menstrual cycles and without history of eating disorder and recent weight loss. Study was approved by t...
